Evolution’s Great Ages – Making Them Work

As identified in the last post, it is such a remarkable thing that the long ages, which even now are still virtually unchallenged, were established long before there could be any real scientific ability to verify them.  Their beginnings came long before radioactivity had entered the picture, long before Mendel’s ground-breaking work on genetics was

The Great Ages – Of Evolution

Throughout the previous blogs, evolution was identified as ultimately declaring that we are nothing, having no worth, and ultimately no future.  How arrogant of us to think that we have a special and important role within the incomprehensible vastness of the universe.  How foolish to think that the stars and planets were hung so that

Death and Science

Usually the couplet is “death and taxes,” but for the moment we consider the relationship between death and science, or rather between death and the common philosophical interpretation of science, evolution, especially when Christians attempt a hybrid between evolution and God called “theistic evolution.” Death presents a basic difficulty.  What is death?  Is that not

Love vs. the “Fittest”

Sometimes Christians attempt a hybrid between evolution and God (that is, “theistic evolution”) as a way to explain the origins of life on the earth; however there is a contradiction between the basic “mechanisms” (if you will) of the two: On the one hand, God is described by John (I,4:8-10) as: He who does not love
