A Modern Myth
2 Peter 1:16
“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.”
A growing number of scientists, some of them with worldwide reputations, are changing their minds about evolution. While many of these scientists are recognizing that evolution is in trouble, they are not necessarily becoming Christians or creationists.
The world-famous astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle announced that there is so much information within higher forms of life that they could not have evolved. Dr. Hoyle said that he could not understand why so many biologists deny this obvious fact and accept evolution.
The scientific world was solidly shaken when Dr. Colin Patterson, head of paleontology at the British Museum, admitted at the American Museum of Natural History in Chicago that he knew nothing about evolution that was true. He said that he had asked other scientists if they could name one thing about evolution that was true. Silence was the usual answer. Dr. Patterson called the evolutionary theory “anti-knowledge.” He especially faulted those who say evolution is a fact, yet admit they don’t know how it works.
Evolutionary theory is the great modern creation myth. As a myth, it is no challenge to the Bible. It’s even losing support in the scientific community. If you would like more information, call Creation Moments and ask for information about scientists turning from evolution.
Prayer: Dear Father, the glory of Your handiwork in the creation is so great that people have difficulty inventing explanations that deny Your work. Help me use this to witness of the salvation that is found in Christ. Amen.
