The general theory of evolution has become a widely accepted explanation for the origin and diversification of life. Although traditional tools of science are utilized in the attempt to validate its premises, the entire framework of evolution is founded on metaphysical presuppositions. Despite the fact that it is commonly portrayed to be the foundation of biological science, the theory of evolution has been proven to be irrelevant as a tool in the advancement of biology as it applies to our world.
The theory of evolution is an elaborate collection of proposals founded on man’s speculation as to what happened over millions of years. Although many of the conclusions that Charles Darwin published in 1859 seemed scientifically logical at the time, current knowledge of molecular biology leads to the conclusion that nearly every proposed mechanism of gradualistic evolution is impossible. Nevertheless, biologists continue to defend the theory of evolution despite the fact that its fundamental tenets cannot be supported by science.
The evolutionary hypothesis requires the undirected appearance of billions of purposeful highly complex genetic code sequences to have occurred over time. Although this process is believed to have been the basis for the origin and diversification of all life, not a single example of such evolution has been observed. Sophisticated biologic systems including hundreds of millions of enzymatic reactions, oxygen transport systems, cellular metabolism, protein synthesis, complex pathways of nerve transmission and integration, hormonal feedback systems, blood coagulation cascades, sophisticated instinctive behaviors, and a host of other complexities are all believed to have evolved into existence by random mistakes in reproduction.
A fundamental doctrine of Darwinism is that all life is the result of natural processes and that no intelligent design exists. This doctrine is assumed to be self-evident, and all observations are interpreted around that assumption.
The theory of evolution, as it is propagated today, is a religious philosophy that wears the mask of science. The fundamental purpose of promoting evolution is the attempt to disprove intelligent creation and promote a worldview. In attempting to do so, there has been a retreat from legitimate methods of scientific investigation in attempting to validate pre-drawn conclusions.
In the evolution controversy, two fundamental questions can be asked:
- Does science demonstrate that evolution did occur?
- Does science demonstrate that evolution could occur?
Science has failed to document that evolution has occurred. Studies of paleontology and current research involving rapidly reproducing organisms such as bacteria do not indicate that evolution has occurred in the past or that it is occurring today.
Science fails to demonstrate that evolution could occur. An understanding of principles involving multiple inter-related scientific disciplines leads to the realization that proposed mechanisms of evolutionary transmutation contradict scientific laws.
In writing this book, it is not my purpose to scientifically prove any aspect of creation as recorded in the book of Genesis. Scientific observation does, however, lead to the deduction that an intelligent force, not further defined, exists to account for the complexity of life. Whatever one's belief system might be as to the origin and diversification of life, science cannot be invoked to explain proposed evolutionary mechanisms.
Anyone who challenges the evolution hypothesis will inevitably be told that there is “overwhelming evidence” to support evolution, that it is a biologic “fact”, and that controversy exists only in the minds of the ignorant. Most people, including many versed in science, are intimidated by such claims. This is because it is difficult to refute arguments presented outside of one’s scope of knowledge. Nevertheless, it is possible for the average person to understand with certainty the utter falsity of evolution without deferring to the expertise of someone else. This is because it is irrelevant how much “evidence” can be amassed in support of a theory. Disproof of any scientific theory requires that only a single insurmountable flaw be discovered. Once that impossibility is thoroughly established, “positive” evidence can be dismissed.
Premium Account Despite this fact, I have chosen to go overboard and dismantle, piece by piece, all of the fundamental arguments employed to support evolution. I subsequently document numerous impossibilities in evolutionary theory, each of which is independently capable of dismantling the entire theory. Since evolution is a false theory, it stands to reason that there is no compelling scientific evidence, when carefully analyzed, to support it. The reader will discover that the entire body of evidence presented in support of evolution is not scientific evidence. It is founded on a philosophical perspective.
Many believe that the rejection of evolution would require a belief that thousands of scientists are either ignorant or are in a conspiracy to deceive the public. In the history of science, many false theories have been embraced by well-intended, intelligent people. Today, thousands of sincere, educated scientists are propagating a false theory. This is not deliberate, but is the result of a misunderstanding of the scientific method, which has created a false paradigm.
For many who have limited understanding of science, their religious beliefs are defended by the contention that evolution is "just a theory." Evolution is not a legitimate scientific theory. Evolution contradicts science. Ultimately, a belief in evolution requires one to reject scientific facts in favor of philosophical beliefs. Those who believe in evolution must accept it on faith.
Questions as to man's origins carry enormous philosophical implications. Those who doubt popularized beliefs are left in the frustrating position of defending their religious beliefs against dogmas that are propagated by those who profess expertise in scientific fields. The religious faith of millions of people has been undermined by those who proclaim that science has proven facts which conflict with Biblical scripture. Without extensive knowledge in such diverse fields as molecular biology, biochemistry, geology, radiometric dating, and many other disciplines, most people are left to either accept what they are told by “scientists” or adhere to their own worldview while being constantly told that “science” contradicts their deeply held beliefs.
In this writing, I will demonstrate that the primary evidence employed in defending evolution is not scientific evidence, but constitutes philosophical and religious persuasions which are presented in such a way as to masquerade as science. This is evident by studying the specific claims that are set forth to defend evolution and recognizing the philosophical presuppositions underlying those claims.
I will further demonstrate that regardless of how logical the evolutionary hypothesis might seem, several serious scientific fallacies form the foundation of Darwinism. The demonstration of these flaws can only lead to the conclusion that evolution is not the explanation of life on earth.
Evolution is widely proclaimed to be irrefutable. In view of these authoritative declarations, the lack of corroborative scientific evidence might come as a shock to those who have not seriously evaluated the facts.
It is my hope that the reader will come to a new realization. There is no need to rely on someone with a degree in a scientific field to instruct you of the history of life on earth. My challenge to you is to carefully study the facts and judge for yourself.
