YOU MUST HAVE GREAT FAITH TO BE AN EVOLUTIONIST –
For those still enthralled and mesmerized by the fairy tale named Evolution, here is something to offer them for contemplation. David Limbaugh in his book Jesus on Trial, states that new scientific advancements have lent additional credibility to intelligent design theory. Take human DNA for instance. Professor Walter Bradley, Ph.D., at the University of Texas at Austin, and Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Baylor University suggests that the discovery of DNA is perhaps the most impressive scientific achievement of the 20th century.
DNA is a tiny molecule that contains genetic codes with instructions for building and replicating all life forms. Says, Dr. Bradley, “That such a remarkable information storage system exits, and that the DNA molecules have somehow come to be encoded with the precise information needed to sustain life is the climax to an amazing testimony from the science of God’s providential care of us in His creation.”
Imaginary evolution theory is like walking into a large auto parts store with hundreds of thousands of individual parts made up of thousands of thousands of smaller parts, and believe that over enough time and with enough earthquakes they could all somehow be thrown on the floor to accidentally form a smooth-running automobile. Intelligent design simply says it takes someone with the knowledge to put those parts together in the right order in order for that car to exist and operate. Bradley notes that for the origin of the cytochrome-C molecule to have accidentally acquired the required sequencing of the various amino acids has a probability of just one in ten.60
Stuart Burgess, a reader in engineering design at Bristol University, England, in his book, Hallmarks of Design: Evidence of Purposeful Design and Beauty in Nature, notes that DNA contains information in a long sequence of four different chemicals “letters” that produces information somewhat analogous to Morse Code. The characteristics of living organisms, such as eye color, are specified by information in this code contained in the DNA. The code has also been compared to a complete set of engineering drawings with a copy found in the nucleus of every cell in the body. Adult humans have trillions of cells and thus trillions of copies of the genetic code in their bodies.
Dr. Norman L. Geisler, Ph.D., and Dr. Frank Turek in their work “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist,” say that “The incredible specified complexity of life becomes obvious when one considers the message found in the DNA of a one-celled amoeba. They note that even world-renown British ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and author, Richard Dawkins admits, “that the message found in just the cell nucleus of a tiny amoeba is more than all thirty volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica combined, and the entire amoeba has as much information in its DNA as 1,000 complete sets of an encyclopedia.” And these “encyclopedias” are not composed of “random letters but of letters in a very specific order-just like real encyclopedias.
The most frightening thing to an unrepentant evolutionist is that more and more is being discovered to repute their shaky theory, while more and more is being uncovered to support the divine design of the universe. And the two things that evolution cannot explain is what did God mean when He said, “Let us make man in our image,” and how Jesus was born of a woman through the fertilization of the Holy without going through the evolutionary process. – Dr. Robert R Seyda
