A Comment on Evolution
Actually Darwin believed that life was “originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one”.
In his conclusion to "The Origin of Species", he wrote of the grandeur of the “view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one”, thus making it evident that the subject of origins was open to further examination, (see: The Genesis 1:1 Enigma).
Phillip Johnson, a Professor of criminal law at the University of California at Berkeley in the United States, has long been fascinated by the way Biologists defend the theory of Evolution. They seem so defensive and dogmatic on the subject that Johnson set about finding out “what the vulnerable points were they’re trying to protect”. The result of his research is a book, Darwin on Trial, that The Sacramento Bee describes as “a lawyer’s examination, bit by bit, of the logic of and evidence behind the theory of Evolution”. The newspaper summarizes: “Darwin flunks”. Johnson claims he found many Scholars, including biologists, who are afraid to speak out publicly against Evolution. “One of the things I’ve learned from this experience”, he told the San Francisco Chronicle, “is that to establish an intellectual orthodoxy and keep it beyond criticism, you don’t need concentration camps and secret police. All you have to do is say that people will laugh at you and you’ll lose your prestige. This has an enormous effect in academic life”.
It is not too difficult to find out where life came from. A Bible writer pointed to that Source 3,000 years ago when he declared:
“How precious your loving-kindness is, O God! . . . For with you is the source of life; by light from you we can see light”.—Psalm 36:7 & 9.
Some hardened critics of the Bible have had to concede that God is the Source of life. Even Evolutionist Darwin acknowledged that originally life must have been “breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one”. But if God could breathe life into “a few forms”, why would he not in the same way breathe it into hundreds of created “kinds”, each in its turn? The Bible says he did just that! He created each living thing “according to its kind”. (Genesis 1:12, 21, 24 & 25) God’s Creation of the first man is described in these words:
“And Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul”.—Genesis 2:7.
According to the Bible, that is how human life got to be here, just 6,000 years ago—by direct Creation from God. It is vital that we understand that fact in order to appreciate that there is much more to life.
In contrast with the Bible’s straightforward account of Creation, some of the explanations by Evolutionists read like fantasies. For example, one Evolutionary Scientist writes this way:
“Once upon a time, very long ago, perhaps two and a half billion years ago, under a deadly sun, in an ammoniated ocean topped by a poisonous atmosphere, in the midst of a soup of organic molecules!!!!???
