In the past couple of days, I have had some fairly interesting exchanges with those who are big proponents of the theory of evolution.
As is usually the case, the discussions were prefaced by attacks upon the Bible.
The atheistic ilk is never satisfied until they have repeated the serpentine mantra of “Has God said?” before proceeding to offer all the wonderful alternatives.
Of course, the evolutionist never does get around to explaining just where or what everything allegedly evolved from.
There is no sensible starting point for evolution; everyone is just supposed to jump into the middle of this vast pond that always existed and start paddling.
If a person just happens to be a good enough swimmer, he will reach the shores of exalted bliss, only to discover it was all an illusion that amounted to nothing.
This is what the evolutionist calls “survival of the fittest,” but never explains why anyone or anything is supposed to survive at all.
The evolutionist regularly argues that just because he does not have a clue how all things began that in no way discounts evolution as being anything other than a fact.
Really!? So, facts have no origins, meaning they are just disconnected or unrelated bits of trivia floating about in space and are contingent on how anyone wishes to use them for whatever reason?
For some reason, that just does not sound very factual or original to me.
In fact, it is completely contrary to what God has to say about knowledge originating in Him (Prov. 1:7).
Nevertheless, as the conversations carried on, it dawned on me. Evolution was, indeed, a fact, just not in the sense that the evolutionist was trying to be persuasive.
For as the line of questioning revealed, the harder the questions, the more senseless, mean-spirited, and accusatory the evolutionary atheist became in his responses.
Not only were theories now facts, the only absolute in the random universe was the denial that absolutes exist, and the animal world was carrying on a conversation that the human species was incapable. Go figure.
Moreover, I was the idiotic numbskull for not buying into all the evolutionary wonderment.
Evolution, I surmised, turns monkeys into humans, who then become asses.
But, then I thought, how glad I was to have only evolved unto the human stage.
