Letter to the editor: Is belief in the theory of evolution realistic? 


The dictionary describes evolution as the theory that all existing organisms developed from earlier forms by natural selection. In another word, Darwinism. 

There is no suggestion as to how those “earlier forms” came to be. Science states that matter can neither be created or destroyed. Reason therefore would seem to point to someone outside of time, space and matter as being the source of life. What we believe about the origin of life determines virtually regarding our world view — where we came from, why we’re here, where we’re going and whether we see morals, ethics and life itself as precious. 

Surely, the complexity of life we have discovered even to date should lead us to conclude that evolution was hopelessly unable to produce any of the living world. Even if it could be proven scientifically that earth is billions of years old, there are no unaltered transition fossils to validate the theory.

That’s just the start of a long list of complications that random chance could not possibly resolve at just the right time, whether in animate or inanimate organisms or substances. The one who knows for sure that evolution didn’t produce life is God. Don’t wait too long to thank Him for His amazing creation.
