Evolution is a Lie

I recently posted the following on Facebook as a response to someone’s post about the Ken Ham / Bill Nye debate.

Bill Nye the alleged "science guy" has bought into the ridiculous idea of evolution, which immediately casts doubt on his “science.” There can be nothing scientific about evolution. The truth is that the data is the same for everyone, and those who believe in evolution approach the data with no less bias than those who believe in the creation model. Of course, the evolution model is absurd on many levels, and it requires a great leap of faith in the power of natural processes to produce new information as new species come into being over millions of years. Information cannot come from non-information, and intelligence cannot come from non-intelligence. The creation model requires faith in a miracle working God, while the evolution model requires faith in the ability of nothing and no one to do millions of accidental miracles in the right order and at the right time to produce all we see in the universe today.

If one just looks at reality – such as the complexity of the human body and all living things – the only sensible conclusion is that there is a Creator. Even if one doubts the Bible, which is not a wise position to take, good sense needs to come to the forefront. Several years ago, I wrote an article entitled “Some Common Sense Reasons to Believe in Creation and Reject Evolution,” which is found here.

Evolution is nothing more or less than a lie spoken by the father of lies, Satan himself, to turn people away from the true and living God. “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4, NKJV).

Satan (Lucifer) first spoke this lie when he said, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:13-14, NKJV). In other words, “I, a created being, will EVOLVE into God.” He has been telling this lie ever since, trying to convince mankind that becoming like God is a real possibility. The idea of evolution has “evolved” from his lie. Even though he has deceived many with his lie, he ultimately cannot even deceive himself, because God’s response to Lucifer’s rant is, “Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol (Hell), to the lowest depths of the Pit.” Satan hates the human race, at least partially because God has provided redemption for humans but not for fallen angels, and he wants to drag as many humans as possible to Hell with him.

Not everyone who teaches evolution is intentionally lying. I believe many, if not most, have simply been deceived. Either way, the impact of this lie is devastating to the human soul.

I welcome your comments. However, since this is a blog rather than an open forum, I will determine what is and what is not posted. All comments, especially anonymous comments, will be scrutinized carefully. I will not post comments that contain profanity or are negative toward the Scriptures, God, Christianity in general, Christian schools, or the United States of America. I also will not post comments that are nothing more than generally uninformed or absurd opinions. In addition, I will not post comments that are totally irrelevant to the subject being discussed. Finally, I will not post comments that are commercial advertisements or advertisements for religious organizations which are in conflict with my biblical convictions.
