Is Evolution A Fact?
By Ron Boatwright

     There are many people today who try to present the unproven theory of evolution as a proven fact.  The reason for the theory of evolution is that godless people do not want to admit that there is a God and to submit to Him.  They want to live their life without God.  As Psalms 14:1 says, "The fool says in his heart, ĎThere is no Godí".  With all of the amazing wonders of Godís creation, man is still looking for another way it could have happened.  But as Romans 1:20 says, "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so they are without excuse."  Because of the wonders of Godís creation, people have no excuse for not believing in God.  God "did not leave Himself without witness" (Acts 14:17).

     The atheistic theory of evolution pretends to be science.  Evolution is not demonstratable as a scientific fact, because it is neither observable, repeatable, or predictable.  It is impossible for evolution to ever be proven.  There is no known case of macroevolution (from one distinct "kind" of organism to another) in all the thousands of years of recorded history.  Also the fossil record does not prove evolution, but it actually disproves it.  Scientists have in their possession billions of known non-transitional fossils but there are no transitional forms between the different kinds even though evolutionists have been looking very intently for them for hundreds of years.  Genesis 1:12, 21, 24 says everything was to reproduce "according to its kind".  If evolution is true we should find innumerable fossilized ancestors and transitional forms, but there are none.  However, every one of these complex invertebrates appear fully formed.  God said to Moses in Exodus 20:11, "For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them."  Notice the words "in" and "all".  IN six days God created ALL that was created.  Atheistic man says that life has been evolving on this earth for the past 4.6 billion years, but God, our Creator, says He completed everything in six days.  Who are you going to believe, God or man?

     Webster defines the word "theory" as "a speculative idea or plan as to how something might be done, a mere conjecture or guess".  By using a handful of bone fragments, a piece of skull, and a couple of teeth evolutionary artists create a complete hairy ape-man like creature to try to prove their theory.  Some imagination!  Our children are constantly being bombarded with this theory in school, on TV, in magazines, etc.  It is presented as though it was true. This is very dishonest.  If one hears something often enough and long enough one will tend to believe it.  This is called "brain washing".  Evolutionists have partly succeeded in passing off their unproven theory as a "proven fact".  Evolutionists think that, if they can even imagine in their biased minds how things might have evolved themselves into higher levels of complexity, that it is sufficient proof that it must have happened, and that everyone should accept it.

     When a theory becomes dogma, its proponents seek every device to protect their theory from challenges and seek to ban any alternatives.  This is poor science and a violation of academic freedom.  Today evolutionists dominate our educational establishment and scientific organizations.  Evolution is accepted and promoted by the majority of the mass media: radio, television, newspapers, and magazines.  The evolutionary establishment reacts in a fit of mass hysteria to even the feeble challenges to its control of public education and the promotion of the theory of evolution as an established fact.  Because "they did not like to retain God in their knowledge" (Romans 1:28), "And for this reason God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: and that they all might be condemned who did not believe the truth" (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12).  Many evolutionary scientists have devoted their best efforts to protect their unproven theory from any negative data.

     There is actually a considerable amount of sound, scientific evidence that contradicts the theory of evolution.  In fact, this evidence is rarely, if ever, mentioned in textbooks.  Shouldnít teachers and students be allowed to search out and consider scientific evidence that contradicts the assumptions and claims of the theory of evolution?  This questioning of evolution is not allowed in the USA; but it is allowed in Russia.  Such an educational process amounts to indoctrination of a particular world-view philosophy.  This is the reason the unproven theory of evolution is so widely accepted in the USA today.

     The theory of evolution violates two of the most basic fundamental scientific laws of nature: the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics.  These are laws that even the atheistic scientists accept.  The First Law states that what ever changes that may take place, the sum total of energy and matter remains constant.  Nothing now is being either created nor destroyed.  The Second Law states that every change which takes place naturally and spontaneously tends to go from a state of order to one of disorder, from the complex to the simple.  Since the universe is like a clock that is running down, it is obvious that it hasnít existed forever, but was created.

     It has been claimed that "the scientific consensus about evolution is very close to unanimous".  This is only wishful thinking.  Thousands of scientists holding advanced degrees in science from major universities throughout the world reject evolutionary theory and have become convinced on the basis of scientific evidence that "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1).  Sir Fred Hoyle, a world famous British astronomer and former atheist after researching for years, declared that the probability of an evolutionary origin of life anywhere in the universe is equal to the probability of a tornado sweeping through a junkyard assembling a Boeing 747.  The theory of evolution has always been and always will be an unprovable theory.  Evolution requires a higher degree of faith than creationism.  "Let God be true and every man a liar" (Romans 3:4).  "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind" (Romans 1:28).
