This is my last post on this in here. If you really want to understand my personal views on life and God and are not out to troll then hit me up in a private tell.
Evolution issues for me: How did the Universe come about? If you believe in God you have no teeth and you IQ must be under 100. Logic then: How can something come from nothing? Without a creator you can't get anything, let alone everything.
How can living creatures come from no life? How did a seed come to be? You can cross this plant and that plant but where is a new from nothing plant? â€œThere are no provable mechanisms for how molecules could increase in complexity without cells to produce and utilize them. For example, you cannot assume proteins before you have the DNA that codes for them.â€ (Dr. Poppe) If everything living died today. All that is left is air/water/rock how does it get populated with living things again? Even Stanley Miller, whose experiments are cited in most biology text books, says that the origin of life is still unknown. The idea that dead material can come to life all by itself is not consistent with scientific observation
Animal Evolution: Mutations destroy DNA code. Ask a Cancer victom how he feels about mutations being a good thing some time. Natural selection does not make new code. Picking bigger and bigger dogs to breed with eachother gets new big dogs, BUT you can make little dogs again by picking small ones out and breeding them. No animal breading has EVER made a gain in information just a rearrangement and loss of what is already there. Dark rabbits can start dying in a snow region and then through natural selection get lighter, but again they can noy make something other than a rabbit.
In my eyes Evolution is a belief system. Evolution -> meaning that such diverse creatures as whales, worms, hummingbirds, hadrosaurs, platypuses and presidents have evolved from the same first life-form... is a belief system. It certainly has not been proved to be a scientific fact.
First Law of Thermodynamics. This law (note: not a theory but a scientific law) teaches us that matter and energy can neither be created nor destroyed. In other words, an honest scientist will tell you that there is nothing in the observable universe that can explain either the origin of energy or matter. By logical extension, then, matter and energy had to come into being by some force outside the universe.
Second Law of Thermodynamics. This law (note: not a theory but a law) teaches us that in every chemical or heat reaction, there is a loss of energy that never again is available for another heat reaction. This is why things break down if left to themselves, and why scientists tell us that the universe is headed toward a heat death.
This law teaches us, then, that the universe is headed toward increasing randomness and decay.
But what does the theory of evolution teach us? The exact opposite, that the universe is headed toward increasing complexity and order. You put up a theory against my law, I'm going to settle for the law, thank you very much.
People don't turn to Christ because it is like picking one car over another car. It is something you know will be an up hill battle. It is something you come to through life experience and some people let it turn them one way and others go another way. One becomes a Christian(or I did) because they know it is the truth to them and they can no longer live a lie. I sit here right now knowing in the future being a Christian is going to be a very hard road.
This thread has a .00% chance of changing my mind about it. I also think it has near that in chances for people who wanna doubt to doubt. So what is the point? Hope you guys figure it all out without me, as I have little time to argue about it with people who have no desire to understand my views.
Have fun and Peace be with you.
