I shared some stuff a few years ago that bears repeating. Because even though government schools dumb down all who attend, teach in, and run those institutions, humans still have complex capabilities other creatures don’t have.
My wife and I share a common ancestor. My dog and I do not.
Some evolutionary scientists embrace a theory they call “convergent evolution”. This is where complex capabilities might be found in unrelated organisms but not in their so-called “evolutionary ancestors”. These scientists say a “common need caused identical complexities to evolve”.
So, that proves a common ancestor. Right?
Not so fast.
Let’s consider, for a moment, three little bones. (no, not the Bob Marley song “Three Little Birds”) The three little bones I’m talking about are in the ears of mammals. And they’re called the stapes, incus, and malleus. These little bones are arranged in a complex way with a precise fit to give mammals the ability to hear a wide range of sounds.
One explanation for this could be the evolutionary scientists’ perspective.
They evolved from the bones in a reptile’s jaw.
OK…if that’s true, then it must have happened at least twice. And there should be transitional fossils found in the fossil records, but so far none have been found or presented. Also, if there was some sort of transition from reptile jaw bones to complex bones found in the ears of mammals, how did any transitional organisms hear during the millions of years of transition?
Huh? Speak up! How did they survive without those complex capabilities?
Without the ability to hear, and hear well, survival would have been virtually impossible.
It would have taken some sort of miracle. And to believe that sort of “miracle” could happen more than once? Well, that would require a common designer. Not a common “need.”
Hey, you gotta put your faith somewhere. I’m not foolish enough to believe everything came from nothing. And I’m not foolish enough to believe that a complex universe, filled with creatures that exhibit a wide range of complex capabilities, sprang out of a compressed dot.
No, my faith isn’t blind. It’s based on where the evidence leads. The similarities of design in different organisms imply a common designer. I call that designer God. In fact, I call Him Lord.
You can have your accidental convergence.
But I’ll take purposeful intelligent design.
All of creation holds information…
Encoded within every cell.
All of the best minds in each generation
Won’t banish what Christians know well…
Your support means more than you know. And in case you’d like to know how you can…
