Generally people think evolution is a scientific fact. That is because the popular media, research programs, textbooks, many TV programs and others present it as such. Evolution is supposed to replace Genesis 1- creation by an omnipotent God. But is evolution science?
# The limits of science
Science investigates phenomena of nature with repeated experiments. Modern science is an absolute miracle. Their methods and techniques are super. For instance the scientist uses methods and techniques to discover how the cell works. Evolution attempts to discover how the cell originated. As an example, let’s look at DNA:
# The ‘instruction manual’ (DNA) for organisms
In the cell, researchers discovered the genetic code with its intricate arrangement of nucleotides, sugars, bases, et cetera. The DNA spells out a ‘recipe’ for birds, fish, plants, humans, et cetera. Each ‘instruction manual’ or ‘recipe’ is unique to each kind of life on earth. The problem is:
# How does a scientist research the origin of DNA?
- Does he put some chemicals in a container and wait for something to happen?
- Does he manipulate chemicals in a laboratory?
- When he designs an experiment to prove its origin, he uses his intelligence and evolution denies intelligence.
- So when he intelligently plans an origins ‘experiment,’ it defeats the evolutionary purpose. For according to them, all life originated by random chance.
- In addition science tests, observes, measures, forms hypotheses, predicts, et cetera. It is impossible to use anything like that with origin issues.
# Has science disproved Genesis 1?
- Evolutionists confess that they have not solved the natural origin of first life yet. Similarly they haven’t solved the natural origin of metamorphosis, the electric eel, sonar in dolphins and other miracles of nature.
- What about the Big Bang or the origin of our solar system? Have they proven by scientific experiments that they happened? No, they haven’t, but they claim it is science. Computer simulations are dependent on the designer, which proves that intelligence is necessary to ‘create’ something.
- Only intelligence can design complex machines. That means highly complex ‘machines’ like the cell, birds, snakes and humans were created by intelligence.
- The Bible shows us that intelligence is God Almighty.
- Science is supposed to answer all the questions of life.
- Science cannot disprove the supernatural creation account in Genesis 1.
- Genesis 1 remains a testimony to God’s omnipotence and wisdom.
Nota Bene: We trust that those who dispute our claims might give us the scientific evidence of how the human mind, an immaterial thing, or speech, evolved. It would be interesting to find out how science, which can only investigate the material, researches the immaterial.
