Why It Matters! Evolutionism as anti-Knowledge
Evolutionists routinely claim that evolutionism is based on science and that Creation is only religion, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Scientific Revolution exploded in 17th century Western Europe because of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. It was when Christians went back to the Bible and applied its principles to the study of nature that understanding of God's Creation, modern science, increased dramatically. Virtually all of the great scientists from the 16th thru the 19th century were Bible-believing Christians. It was because Reformation Christians understood the basic idea that make science possible and that is Universe, the idea that the same set of laws apply throughout all of Creation. While the idea of a universal set of laws of Creation seems normal and obvious to us today, it is a concept that was quite foreign to most cultures for most of history. Throughout most of history people did not believe that nature was governed by a fixed and unchangeable set of laws, they believed that things just happened without the direction of a single, all-powerful God.
In the 19th century anti-Christians like Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin hijacked what had been primarily a Christian inquiry into nature, science, and even though they kept a Christian style of inquiry, they just said that it happened by itself. Of course when someone denies God they also deny truth and so nonsense began to infiltrate what had been a search for truth, one of the best examples being the study of human physiology.
In the 19th century evolutionary medical researchers proclaimed with great certainty that there were over 100 vestigial organs, or left over organs from our supposed evolutionary past, in the human body, because evolutionists believed that humans were just a random collection of parts that randomly came together. Because of this belief they then thought there were many organs that had been useful in the past, but were now useless. This belief significantly retarded medical research because if organs are useless leftovers, than why bother to investigate them? It took over 100 years before researchers came to realize that all human organs are useful, even the much maligned appendix, which is now known to be part of the immune system.
Scientists who looked for both design and purpose in God's Creation are the ones who made the greatest scientific advances. Johannes Keppler, the first modern astronomer, said about his research that he was "thinking God's thoughts after Him". Isaac Newton was able to formulate the Law of Gravity because he knew that the same God who had made the apples that fell from the tree also made the Moon that orbited the Earth and had also created the gravity that made both things possible. George Washington Carver, the greatest American agricultural scientist, when testifying about peanuts before a US Senate committee was asked where he had learned so much about peanuts, he said that he had learned about them from a book. When asked which book Carver replied the Bible, he said that the Bible tells us that God had made plants to be our food, all he had to do was to find out how to use them.
Creationist scientists search for meaning in God's Creation and not surprisingly they find it. Evolutionists assume that there is no purpose or design in what they see and again not surprisingly so often find themselves going down blind alleys. Never being shy about promoting their failures as triumphs they will claim that their failures are proof of the triumph of the scientific method without ever seeming to realize that if you start with the wrong premise you will come to the wrong conclusion. It took over 100 years for medical researchers to overcome the false idea that there were any useless organs in the human body, but they didn't really learn their lesson. A few years ago genetic researchers found that some genes did not code for protein production, which is what evolutionary genetic researchers thought was all that genes did. Since the evolutionists didn't know what these non-coding genes actually did they just branded them as "junk DNA" and ignored them. Fortunately a few wiser heads didn't accept this prejudiced view and continued to do research and eventually found that there was no "junk" in God's DNA, that the non-coding DNA was a regulating feature of the genetic code. It is only when evolutionists ignore their evolutionary religious bias that they are able to make real progress in science. Evolutionists hijacked true science about 150 years ago and thought that by slapping the label EVOLUTION on it then it would somehow change how truth is really found out in God's Creation. But reality continually throws a monkey wrench into their evolutionary storytelling and they find that they have to go back to a Creationist methodology to find out what the truth really is.
