when it comes to the truth of evolution, many Christians feel compelled to look the other way … While Genesis contains wonderful insights into the relationship between God and the creation, it simply does not contain scientific ideas about the origin of the universe, the age of the earth or the development of life.
So religious beliefs should not inform our views on origins, got it.
And all life forms are related to each other though evolution. These are important truths that science has discovered through careful research.
Scientific research has revealed on such thing. Not even close.
Anyone who values truth must take these ideas seriously, for they have been established as true beyond any reasonable doubt.
This is the universal claim of evolutionists, but it has never been even remotely demonstrated scientifically.
There is much evidence for evolution.
There is much evidence for geocentrism.
The most compelling comes from the study of genes, especially now that the Human Genome Project has been completed and the genomes of many other species being constantly mapped.
In particular, humans share an unfortunate “broken gene” with many other primates, including chimpanzees, orangutans, and macaques. This gene, which works fine in most mammals, enables the production of Vitamin C. Species with broken versions of the gene can’t make Vitamin C and must get it from foods like oranges and lemons.
These similar broken genes (the so-called pseudogenes) are found with broken parts that do not fit the expected evolutionary pattern. In these cases even evolutionists admit that the breaks are not due to common descent. It is therefore the fallacy of special pleading to claim that when such breaks fit the expected evolutionary pattern they serve as proof texts for evolution.
Of course none of this matters because the argument was never scientific to begin with.
Thousands of hapless sailors died painful deaths scurvy during the age of exploration because their “Vitamin C” gene was broken.
How can different species have identical broken genes? The only reasonable explanation is that they inherited it from a common ancestor.
The only reasonable explanation is common descent? It is the umpteenth time evolutionists have proclaimed their metaphysics in the guise of science. And it is the umpteenth time they have done this right after insisting religion must have nothing to do with origins science. You can read more about this here, here, here, here and here. Simply put, this claim that the only reasonable explanation for pseudogenes is common descent does not come from science—it can’t.
Such evidence proves common ancestry with a level of certainty comparable to the evidence that the earth goes around the sun.
True, given the evolutionist’s religious mandates, evolution is highly certain. But from a scientific perspective the idea has substantial problems.
This is but one of many, many evidences that support the truth of evolution
True, evolution’s religious view converts a great many unlikely evidences into proof texts. Religion drives science, and it matters.
