To the Editor:
Evolutionists who ridicule belief in a Creator complain when evolution is described as atheistic theory. If everything evolved then nothing was created and God wouldn't exist.
Minor biological changes don't prove that major changes occurred or are even possible. There are limits to biological change evolutionists often ignore.
Evolutionists believe, without proof, that birds evolved from reptiles. However, French evolutionist Lecomte du Nouy admitted that birds have all the "characteristics of absolute creation."
Physicist H.S. Lipson said: "The only acceptable explanation is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists..." He said that evolution became a "scientific religion."
Evolutionist Francis Hitching admitted: "Genes are a powerful stabilizing mechanism whose main function is to prevent new forms from evolving." He said "mutations at the molecular level cannot explain the ...complexity of life."

Hitching considered the theory of evolution to be "so inadequate that it deserves to be treated as a matter of faith."
Not all creationists believe everything was created in six 24-hour days 6000 years ago. They believe in a very old universe in which major geological changes and the creation of living things took place on the earth during long periods of time. Creation "days" in Genesis are symbolic of eras thousands of years in length. (see 2 Peter 3:5-8)
Ultimate origins are beyond the reach of science but that doesn't stop evolutionists. They believe the creation created itself by mindless natural forces (wherever they came from). Those mindless forces supposedly created what intelligent scientists are unable to duplicate today.
