”THE EVOLUTION THEORY IS TRUE”
I have had my own website on the Internet for a few years. I have
written there about the evolution theory and many other subjects. I have tried
to demonstrate that the evolution theory has enormous defects and to show that
a much more sensible approach is the creation view.
Concerning this subject, I
have collided into a wall. It is very difficult to sway the views of others,
and their opinions do not change very easily. You, too, would easily fail in
Formerly I thought that if you
try to bring out the facts as logically and convincingly as possible, people
can be won. But now I understand that it isn’t that simple. This is not
possible. Instead, the conversation ends when an evolutionist armed with an arrogant
smile states the magical word “fundamentalist.” So the person who believes in
creation goes away depressed. This is what usually happens.
When one speaks about defects
and weaknesses of the evolution theory, one enters into an almost useless and hopeless
activity. If you speak about problems in the birth of life or point out that
the intermediate forms are missing, you will soon see that it will not lead
anywhere, because the reply is always: “The evolution theory is true, the
evolution theory is true, the evolution theory is true, and it is not
worthwhile doubting it.” It happens generally like this, no matter what the
facts and the observations of practice are. Weaknesses in the evolution theory
can indeed be admitted, but not that the whole theory is false. The
evolutionists are not ready to abandon the theory. As a former evolution
believer I understand such a view, because I too believed in the evolution
theory even though I did not know about its weaknesses. I understand that 99
percent of people are in the same situation; they do believe in the theory,
even though they do not know much about research material concerning it.
The outlook on life guides us. As to the evolution theory
and creation, it is important to emphasize that they both are beliefs connected
to the past, which cannot be proved properly. It is impossible. Instead, we can
only draw conclusions on grounds of the information we get from fossils and
other material. They give some kind of picture about what the past was like. I myself
am convinced that this material fits much better into the creation model than
the evolution theory of Darwin.
Both views rely upon on faith
-- we believe either in creation or in evolution. The evolution theory is not
scientific either; it is a belief based on the past such as faith in God’s
being behind everything. Both of them are quite similar outlooks; in both faith
plays a great part, and in both the past is thought to have taken place
according to a certain model. It is impossible to refute these viewpoints.
Furthermore, the same outlooks
on life guide us and our thinking. Through them everyone filters things. So, if
we already believe in creation, we usually do not accept contradictory
material. Or if someone believes in the evolution theory, he neither wants to
accept different material nor is he interested in it. He generally rejects it
The change in the society. I think that the evolution theory is not any
separate matter, but it is connected to the development that takes place in
society. It is remarkable that for the largest part our forefathers did not
believe in this kind of theory, but they believed in creation. Furthermore, the
society of that time regarded as wrong such behavior as the relations outside
the marriage, abortion and homosexuality. The sexual revolution, in the wake of
which these matters became known, is after all quite a new attitude. It is only
some decades old. The amount of sexual activity has not increased over former
levels, but only the kind of activities that our forefathers would have
regarded as wrong. I think that all these points are connected with each other
and are a sign of the development taken place in the society.
I think, too, that the
blessing will go away from such a society that calls evil good and good evil.
The question is not that we shouldn’t love our neighbours or those who think in
another way, but that we make darkness into light and light into darkness. I
myself am worried that such society will not have the future.
