Evolution is about as scientific as it gets, at least in the minds of those who believe in the atheistic version of it. It’s one thing to observe the gradual changes that occur in animals and plants and make conclusions. It’s another thing to insert an atheistic worldview that makes evolution more than what it is.
That’s the gist of a story Ravi Zacharias told recently about his experience discussing atheistic evolution with a scientist. They exchanged mild retorts about each other’s perspectives, but as Zacharias delved deeper into the idea that time plus matter plus chance equals mind, suddenly the conversation headed in a different direction.
Atheists often wrongly attribute a dispute with evolution as a dispute over science itself. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, part of science is taking observations, theorizing about what those observations could mean, and discussing them to draw consensus or division. Both Bible-believing and secular scientists have come to the conclusion that Darwinian evolution in its stated forms draw the wrong conclusions about the origins of species, the speed in which organisms evolve, and the reasons they do so, but the broader scientific community chooses to ignore the contradictions or explore the other possible conclusions. Invariably, it seems as if they choose to ignore them because they draw too close to a Biblical worldview, something they’re not comfortable with accepting.
This video is a short bit of fun and knowledge, but I strongly recommend doing even more research into Biblical explanations for observations attributed to Darwinian evolution. As I said previously, many will throw science in your face if you go down this road. Be ready with even better science.
