Certain statements which appear constantly in evolutionist publications, should make us prick up our ears:
Why does the doctrine of evolution require such assurances? One will never find such confessions of belief in scientific journals dealing with physics, chemistry, or informatics. On the contrary, authors in these disciplines are inclined to comment reservedly on their results. Nietzsche’s maxim seems to apply to evolutionary philosophy: “Convictions are worse enemies of truth than lies.”
Science-theoretical analysis along the lines of theorems P1 to P10 leads to the conclusion that the “theory of evolution” does not qualify as a scientific theory. Some examples will clarify this statement:
It has also become clear from the scientific objections discussed above (OB1 to OB20) that evolution cannot “deliver the goods” as pretended by its supporters. The question rightly arises why it is believed so emphatically, while the creation account of the Bible is so readily brushed aside, as is, for example, done by Dawkins [D2, p. 316]: “The Genesis story is just the one that happened to have been adopted by one particular tribe of Middle Eastern herders. It has no more special status than the belief of a particular West African tribe that the world was created from excrement of ants.” But Dawkins himself declares in a clear statement of preconceived belief (p. 337): “If I am correct, this means that, even if no factual evidence for Darwin’s theory is available, it is certainly justifiable to accept it above all other rival theories.”
If evolution is false, as we have stated many times with the aid of scientific and biblical arguments, then numerous sciences are built on a false foundation. Whenever they conform with evolutionary views, they arrive at a misrepresentation of reality. If the biblical doctrine of creation is true, then we can practice a better science based on the truth. Creation research is therefore mandatory on the following grounds:
Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them” (Ps. 111:2).
