Man's wisdom changes
Philosopher Rene Descartes said "I think, therefore I am"
Evolution is taught as a fact throughout the world
  • The explicit implication of this is that God doesn't exist
  • Therefore there is no future judgement or accountability for my life
  • Therefore I do what I want
  • School children who question evolution are told they are "ignorant"
  • The Stanley Miller experiment is taught in schools, even though it has been discredited
When considering the origins of mankind and the universe, the conclusions are fundamentally influenced by the individual's beliefs. The facts don't speak for themselves - they are always interpreted based on an individual's bias. Most evolutionists have a naturalistic starting point, so they are not prepared to allow God into the equation.
God's wisdom doesn't change
God said "I am"
John 14:6 "Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.""
John 18:37 "Pilate replied, “You are a king then?” “You say that I am a king, and you are right,” Jesus said. “I was born for that purpose. And I came to bring truth to the world. All who love the truth recognise that what I say is true.”"
Christians believe that the Bible is God's Word, that it is absolute truth
If there is a contradiction, then it is only apparent, either the evidence or the interpretation is incorrect.
Christians also believe that there is a constant battle waging between good and evil, between truth and deception. The question over the integrity of the Bible and the origins of life is a battleground between truth and lies.
Origen (born AD 185), the great theologian of the Greek churches, defended, "the Mosaic account of the creation, which teaches that the world is not yet ten thousand years old, but very much under that." (Ref Origen, Against Celsus, 1.19, Ante- Nicene Fathers, 4:404.)
Augustine (born AD 354), the great bishop of the Latin churches, wrote, "the Scripture has paramount authority, . . to which we yield assent in all matters. But they say what they think, not what they know. They are deceived . . . by those highly mendacious documents which profess to give the history of many thousand years, though reckoning by the sacred writings, we find that not 6,000 years have yet passed”. (Ref Augustine, The City of God)
Martin Luther was opposed to evolutionary thinking and ideas. With reference to the first chapters of Genesis: “ The earth is not more than 6000 years old” and “if we cannot understand the meaning of the word "day" how can we possibly use days in the way God intended us to use them..One may not use sophistries with reference to this text." and "This, I say, is historical… Here we are taught about the beginning of man, that the first man did not come into existence by a process of generation as reason had deceived Aristotle and the philosophers into imagining." (Ref Luther's Works, Vol 1)
