The theory of evolution was a hard sell. Even Darwin had a hard time with it. If you read anything of Darwin’s you find he’s continually filling all his writings with tremendous doubts. For example, he says in the sixth chapter of his Origin of the Species, “Long before having arrived at this part of my work, a crowd of difficulties will have occurred to the reader. Some of them are so grave that to this day I can never reflect on them without being staggered.” In his chapter on instinct he conceded such simple instincts as bees making a beehive could be sufficient to overthrow my whole theory. And to think he said that “The eye could evolve by natural selection seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree.” In his chapter on imperfections in the geological record he complained that the complete lack of fossil intermediates in all geological records was perhaps, quote, “the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory.” In other words, he was at least honest enough to admit that the thing didn’t make any sense.
Darwin wrote that he was deeply conscious of his own ignorance. In his personal letters he wrote about having awful misgivings, of having deluded myself and devoted myself to a fantasy. But Darwin was determined to escape from a personal God at all costs. He said that. “I am determined to escape from design and a personal God at all costs.” To the end of his life he was in that war, trying as he would to escape from God he never really could. And finally his emotional life atrophied under the strain of the battle, religious feelings disappeared and with it everything else, the world became cold and dead. And in the end Darwin apparently received a taste of his own medicine. He had deprived the universe of God and all meaning and so he had deprived himself of all meaning.
What do evolutionist think about that?
“Well, chance made it appear.” You know what? This sounds so ridiculous and yet this is the undergirding philosophy behind evolution. It is completely incoherent and irrational. But the new evolutionary paradigm is chance. And it’s the opposite of logic.
It has been discovered in recent years that the genetic programs of say higher biological organisms consist of about one-thousand-million bits of information. One-thousand-million bits of information in one living organism. And that information that is encoded in that living organism determines the nature, the growth, the development and the death of billions of cells in that living organism.
Now who, frankly, in his right mind could ever believe that such supremely complex machines, which is what living organisms are, storing and retrieving the precise information to service thousand million cells, diagnose defects and repair them and reproduce all developed at random by chance out of nothing? It’s absolutely idiotic.The big issue, the issue that is bringing down evolution is the study of the origin of information, it’s called information theory. Where did the information come from? There’s no code in there to turn the monkey into a man. There’s no such thing as jumping out of your
