Some evolution based in myth
To the editor:
Atheists reject the Bible’s history of creation but their theory of evolution is a creation myth without a creator.
Natural selection does occur but not in unlimited ways that cause radical changes over long periods of time. It is impossible for reptiles to evolve into birds, non-human primates to evolve into human beings, etc.
An evolutionist even admitted that a main function of DNA is to prevent evolution. There are limits to biological change, a scientific fact the theory of evolution contradicts.
Even Darwin said the idea that the eye was produced by natural selection was “absurd.” He accepted atheistic evolution because the death of his daughter caused him to reject God.
Darwin knew nothing about DNA. It’s more complex than the eye and isn’t fully understood by scientists. It is illogical to believe that the mindless forces of nature created DNA millions of years ago.
After 50 years of atheism, philosopher Antony Flew changed his mind. He finally realized that intelligence was necessary for the creation of life. His study of the complexity of DNA convinced him of that fact.
Sir Arthur Keith wrote the introduction to the 100th edition of Darwin’s “Origin of Species.” He admitted: “Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable.”
They prefer to put their faith in atheism.
Stephen Hawking asked why there is something rather than nothing. “Spontaneous creation” was his atheistic answer that the creation created itself from nothing.
That is impossible.
In his book “A Brief History of Time,” Hawking did make a wiser comment:
“It would be very difficult to explain why the universe should have begun in just this way, except as the act of a God who intended to create beings like us.”
