I was talking to a group of young children, perhaps 10 or 11 years old, and they were looking at a partly mud-covered house. This house had got covered in mud at the time of the 1980 eruption of...

Evolution – A Matter of Faith

John 1:3-4
"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

Does the name Harold Clayton Urey ring a bell? Urey was an American physical chemist who did pioneering work on isotopes, earning him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for discovering deuterium. He also played a significant role in the development of the atom bomb. Still no bell? Well, perhaps you'll recognize his name if I mention the Miller-Urey experiment, conducted in 1952.

Harold Clayton Urey in 1933In that famous experiment, a mixture of ammonia, methane, hydrogen and water was exposed to electric sparks to simulate lightning. The mixture ended up producing some amino acids – the building blocks of life – but many news outlets mistakenly reported that Harold Urey and Stanley Miller had created life in the lab.

Though Urey's name is still known and revered by evolutionists, I wonder how many of them know where Harold Urey ended up in his views on the origin of life. Listen carefully to what he told the Christian Science Monitor ten years after the Miller-Urey experiment:

"All of us who study the origin of life find that the more we look into it, the more we feel that it is too complex to have evolved anywhere." He went on to say he "believes as an article of faith that life evolved from dead matter on this planet." An article of faith, not science!

And that is exactly what evolution really is – a faith that denies both the Bible and the most fundamental laws of science.

Heavenly Father, I pray that more evolutionists would come to realize that living cells are so incredibly complex, only our Creator could have made them! In Jesus' Name. Amen.
