Q: Did the Apostle Peter warn about evolution?

A: Most of us think that evolution was an idea started by Darwin around 150 years ago. So how could Peter have warned us about evolution nearly 2,000 years ago?

Well, first of all, Darwin didn’t come up with the idea of evolution—he just popularized a particular version of it.

In 2 Peter 3, Peter warns us that in the last days, “scoffers” will come, saying that all things continue as they did from the beginning of creation. Evolutionists teach this when they say that the processes of nature have virtually been the same from the supposed beginning billions of years ago.

An excellent example to illustrate this can be found when you visit the Grand Canyon. The park rangers will tell you that the layers of rock in the Canyon are the result of slow processes that have been going on for millions of years.

But the evidence from the rock layers fits with what the Bible tells us concerning the judgment of the Flood. It is obvious these layers were laid down catastrophically, not slowly. But evolutionists deliberately choose to ignore the obvious—why? They have been blinded by the god of this world and don’t want to submit to the God of the Bible!


For information on how you can raft the Grand Canyon with an AiG speaker and Tom Vail, author of Grand Canyon: A Different View, see Grand Canyon 2007.


Evolutionist quote of the week

In order to be convinced of this important result, it is above all things necessary to study and compare the mental life of wild savages and of children. At the lowest stage of human mental development are the Australians, some tribes of the Polynesians, and the Bushmen, Hottentots, and some of the Negro tribes.

In many of these languages there are numerals only for one, two, and three: no Australian language counts beyond four. Very many wild tribes can count no further than ten or twenty, whereas some very clever dogs have been made to count up to forty and even beyond sixty.

– Ernst Haeckel, “The History of Creation”, pp. 362, 363
