Private Interpretation

Who Is Against Evolution?

Job 21:7, 14
“Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power? . . . Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.”

Lots of folks would like you to believe that only ignorant, backward people reject evolution. But is that really the case? The fact is that the case for evolution is so weak that many scientists who cannot even be called friends of Christianity reject it on scientific grounds!

The British Museum Great CourtBack in 1981, Dr. Colin Patterson of the prestigious British Museum of Natural History shocked the scientific world. He told scientists at the famed American Museum of Natural History in New York that he’d been examining anti evolutionary ideas for about 18 months. It finally struck him that, although he had been working on evolution for 20 years, he could not find one fact about evolution that he really knew to be true.

Dr. Patterson said he had asked scientific colleagues at other institutions whether they knew anything about evolution to be actually true. After a lot of silence at several meetings, one fellow scientist finally spoke up at one meeting and said, “I do know one thing – it ought not to be taught in high school.”

Dr. Patterson concluded his talk at the American Museum of Natural History by saying that he finally “woke up and realized that all my life I had been duped into taking evolution as revealed truth in some way.” You see, those who reject evolution are in a lot of good, educated company!

Lord, I mourn for the many who try to avoid You by hiding in stories about evolution, especially since I know that they cannot avoid coming face to face with You at the judgment. Despite the fact that many of them have set themselves as enemies of Your people, I pray for them and ask that they may not avoid coming in repentance to You before it is too late. Amen.
