The theory of evolution has been called “settled science” for years. It seems that there’s no room in the scientific community for debate over evolutionary ideas even as new discoveries seem to counter the accepted conclusions based on better understanding of the evidence.
The modern scientific world is extremely political in nature. This isn’t just about the pride of not wanting to be proven wrong, though holding a particular worldview for decades is often hard to reverse. The real culprit in the stifling of clear evidence that points to intelligent design is financial in the form of accepted results being pushed in order to achieve grants or even employment. Scientists do not want to be blacklisted over their better understanding of new evidence.
It’s deeper than that, though. There’s a clear and nefarious force at work that maintains the delusion. For every new discover that points to intelligent design, an excuse or a series of excuses are contrived in order to justify maintaining the failed theory of evolution as the only acceptable theory in the scientific community.
This video of Chris Ashcraft filmed during the Apologetics Symposium at Cedar Park Church, Bothell, WA, on December 12th, 2018, is a must watch to those who either want clarification for personal reasons or want information to share with those who need to hear the truth. It should be part of many apologetic toolboxes. Science-based apologetics isn’t for everyone, but those who use it should definitely watch this video.
The last thing Bible-believing Christians need to do is get frustrated over the unfortunate indoctrination of the secular worldview that is spreading across the world. We need to remember Ephesians 6:12 and realize the fight must continue to be fought.
