If your theory of how life began is only
filling in the gaps with guesses,
you need a new theory.
The first thing I’d like to say is how much I wish those who oppose the notion of a Creator God would come to know the saving Grace of Jesus. I don’t want you to die and go to hell. And neither does God. And I don’t want you to get the idea I’m mocking you or taunting you. That’s not my intention. If I write things down as facts, and it makes you uncomfortable or downright upset, please remember…I’ve gone through my whole life hearing your side told as though it were scientific facts. For the sake of meaningful dialogue, let’s just say we both have a theory for how life began. Mine says God created the Heavens and the Earth and everything in them. Yours says it all happened by chance, and your theory has been filling in the gaps with guesses. Oops…sorry, but I have to call ’em as I sees ’em.
I read this excerpt today by an evolutionist. Here’s how it was set up:
“Misconception: ‘Gaps in the fossil record disprove evolution.’ Response: The fact that some transitional fossils are not preserved does not disprove evolution. Evolutionary biologists do not expect that all transitional forms will be found and realize that many species leave no fossils at all.”
That’s what’s known as a “straw man” argument. The opposition view states something that’s either not your position or not a correct representation of your position…and then knocks it down easily…like you could knock down a straw man. The actual fossil gap argument is a bit more complex. Dr. Walt Brown
, who wrote the book “In The Beginning – Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood” gives a much clearer and detailed account of the gaps in the fossil record. He points out how there are “many gaps or discontinuities…throughout the fossil record”. Not merely “some transitional fossils”. For example there’s a big gap “between forms of life whose cells have nuclei” like plants, animals, and fungi and those that don’t…like bacteria and blue-green algae. That’s not all.
There are also missing links between large groupings of plants and between single-celled forms of life and invertebrates. Then there are gaps among the insects and between invertebrates and vertebrates, between fish and amphibians, between amphibians and reptiles, between reptiles and mammals, between reptiles and birds, between primates and other mammals, and between apes and other primates.
That’s a lot of gaps. In fact, as Dr. Brown puts it, “chains are missing, not links”.
Scientists have been studying the fossil record for a long, long time. And the best the evolutionary scientist can come up with for filling in the gaps is silly guesses. They’re so selfishly attached to their foregone conclusion that they refuse to go where the evidence takes them.
If only they could see…the evidence takes them to eternal paradise with the one true, living, loving God.
What about you? Are you standing in the quicksand of evolution? If so, I recommend you give “In The Beginning
” a good amount of your time. I believe you’ll understand it’s much better to stand on The Solid Rock of Creation.
