Scientists Know Darwinian Evolution is Impossible. That's a fact.

Scientific techniques and capabilities have continued to improve, and the result is that the molecular evidence is showing life is too complex to have evolved. In addition, mutations are mostly degrading to the genome, and that means we are going downhill, not evolving upward. In this edition of the Science Pastor Steve continues to look at the statement from the Third Way, a scientific organization that is searching for an alternative to Darwinism. They write:

“The commonly accepted alternative is Neo-Darwinism, which is clearly naturalistic science but ignores much contemporary molecular evidence and invokes a set of unsupported assumptions about the accidental nature of hereditary variation. Neo-Darwinism ignores important rapid evolutionary processes such as symbiogenesis, horizontal DNA transfer, action of mobile DNA and epigenetic modifications. Moreover, some Neo-Darwinists have elevated Natural Selection into a unique creative force that solves all the difficult evolutionary problems without a real empirical basis.”

An interesting fact that has come out of genetics in the past ten years is that life adapts to its environment, ion a limited way. It's called engineered adaptability, meaning the ability to adapt has been designed into life. The adaption is not great enough to result in evolution, but life (including us) has the ability to sense the environment, adapt, and pass on those adaptations to the next generation. This is done through what is called epigenetics. These are no mutations. These are built-in capabilities that get turned on or off as needed.

The Good News

Before you get the good news, you need to know the bad news. It's about you. God says:

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

Sin means disobeying God, aka breaking God's law. God is perfect and perfection is required to enter heaven. It's a standard none of us can achieve. We all fall short. For example, compare yourself with just one of the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie?

All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8. Or what about:

Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:

Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.' Have you done that?

You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...

Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true (believe), and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
