For many years I was taught at school that we are the result of evolution. All my teachers said so, I heard it on TV, I read it in magazines... So I believed it. Whenever anyone tried to tell me something else, I would label them as being ignorant and stupid. How could they be so dumb to ignore the reality that science is showing us?
But one day something happened that shook my world… A smart young lady looked at me with a smile in her eyes and she said: 'David, you should have a look at this book. It is written by a biologist.' I accepted it and started reading. In this book a biologist explained that evolution is not proven and that it is even contrary to important scientific realities. Wow… At first I thought: 'this guy is out of his mind, he is lying, he is twisting the facts, he is doing something to make me believe him…. What is it?' So I went on a quest for the truth - the truth that would eventually turn my world upside down.
You see, I never truly investigated the theory of evolution. I heard from 'the experts' that it is a proven reality, so who was I to question it?
The arguments presented to me at school and in the media seemed solid, so I bowed down and kissed the feet of Darwinism, because it had enlightened the minds of the modern western world. I worshipped evolution as the glorious and divine answer to the burning question of mankind: 'where did we come from?' But I never truly investigated it. Now I was forced to check it out. Is this biologist lying? Or is he saying something that will turn me into an unbeliever? Will I be forced to rethink what I have always believed?
I went to libraries, lectures, bought books and magazines, talked to teachers… I wanted to know: who is lying here? Who is not presenting the facts as they really are? Who is trying to mislead me? Or... who are deceived themselves, in such a way that they are dragging others along with them in their abbys of deception?
The more I studied it, the more I came to the astonishing conclusion: this biologist is not lying, the theory of evolution is indeed unproven. It is even opposite to some of the most foundational realities of this world, it contradicts the most basic laws of nature.
But it is presented as the ultimate truth, the wonderful light that guides all true scientists, the answer to our deepest questions. It is also the wonderful solution for anyone who hates the idea of a Creator. This discovery made me angry. I realized how this world is being lied to by many of the most respected scientific establishments. I woke up, not from a bad dream, but in a horrific reality. While before I felt safe and strong in this world, knowing science is our great and mighty hero, showing mankind where to go, I suddenly saw that our foundations are not as solid as we all dream.
I can imagine that for some who read this this sounds insane. No problem, I know how you feel. I have felt this shock, this anger, this amazement too: 'how can anyone in his right mind dare to write that the theory of evolution is an illusion?' I have done the research: several years I read everything I could find, I went to the libraries, I asked tough questions to teachers and professors, I watched the documentaries, I visited the museums, I had a good, long look at the presented evidence for evolution. And I was horrified. Utterly horrified… Because I saw how untrue it all is. And how easy it is to unmask it.
'God is not an option'
But I was also confronted with another reality: most people to whom I tried to explain what I was discovering didn't want to hear it. They defended their faith in evolution with all their strength.
I encountered something beyond science, beyond reason, beyond facts… I encountered something deep within mankind: an irrational aversion against the idea of a God who has created us.
I even read quotes by well know evolutionists who openly said 'we lack evidence for evolution, but the only option is God and that is no option!' I heard one evolutionary philosopher even say 'I would rather die then ever believe in God!' Wow… Is that objective science? No! It is irrational, emotional hatred, it is fighting with a passion against an idea and defending another idea, regardless of the facts. 'No matter what the outcome of our research says, we will defend the theory of evolution, because God simply is no option.'
Information and order
I will give you some basic facts that show you that the theory of evolution is no proven fact. Then I will invite you to read some books, written by top level scientists, who say the same stuff, but with an avalanche of scientific facts. First I will tell you something about information...
The very foundation of life is I N F O R M A T I O N. This information is stored in our DNA, our genetic code.
The information stored in the DNA shapes every living being. It tells an organism how to function and do what it needs to do, in order to operate effectively. It is like the information in a computer program. What you must realize is that the amount of information in living organisms is beyond anything you could ever imagine. A single living cell contains more information than our best software programs. Our best technological masterpieces cannot even come near to the most basic functions of a living cell, like duplicating itself. The level of complexity of a living cell is so enourmous, that the best scientists in the world cannot even duplicate it. With all their intellect, with all their knowledge, with al their technology, they can't even copy it, let alone create anything that comes near the high level of information, complexity and perfection that is found in a living cell. Some experts say that the living cell is like a universe in itself. Man is only beginning to discover this vast universe of information.
Where did this information come from? And who put it in the right order?
Information never comes out of the blue. It always comes from an intelligent source. And in order to become functional, this information needs to be ordered just right. Think of this: billions of elements are all interconnected in such a way that it makes the most amazing functions possible: skin turning brown due to sunlight, wounds healing, eyes that change focus and adapt to light and darkness,… I could write a list here that goes on forever, explaining the countless spectacular functions of all living organisms. Making it possible for fish to breath underwather, birds to fly high in the sky and find their way without a map, insects to mate and reproduce new technological masterpieces (I always call them tiny robots), etc.
A basic rule in science is this: information always comes from an intelligent source. And function always requires intelligent organization.
The theory of evolution says there is no intelligent source and there is no intelligent organization. So right from the very beginning, evolution goes radically against two of the most basic realities of our world: information and order both require an external source.
Mutations that add information
Mutations are errors that occur in our DNA. According to the theory of evolution mutations drive evolution: mutations have occurred in the DNA of very basic living beings, and eventually transformed them from fish to reptile, from reptile to bird, from ape to man, etc. Every living being on earth thanks its existence to mutations, says the evolutionist. Errors in the DNA. Nothing was intelligently designed, everything is the result of errors in the DNA, and natural selection picked the useful mutations. That way scales from fish changed into feathers of birds, gills turned into lungs, legs became wings, etc.
All technological masterpieces we see in nature (and there are millions upon millions of them, the one even more astonishing than the other) are the result of errors in the DNA.
But the mutations needed for evolution are not just regular mutations. What type of mutations are needed to eventually turn a fish into a lion? You need a very specific type of mutation: a mutation that does not only change or delete the current amount of information. No, you need brand new information, that is completely different from what is already present in the organism. A snake has a completely different information in his DNA than an eagle! Yet evolution says reptiles evolved into birds. Just imagine the amazing amount of brand new information that is needed to turn a reptile into a bird! You need brand new information for the beak, the eyes, the stomach, the nervous system, the digestive system, the blood,... everything needs to be completely reprogrammed. The level of complexity we find in the design of birds is too amazing for words. Our best scientists still cannot duplicate it. One single feather is already a masterpiece of aerodynamical design. All this needs enormous amounts of new information.
So you don't need regular mutations, you need countless mutations that add dazzling amounts of brand new information of an extremely high level of perfection, to reprogram living beings to eventually become something completely different.
Brace yourself now... You are about to read something you may find very hard to believe: these specific types of mutations needed for evolution have never been observed. What? Yes, please read it again, blink your eyes a few times, punch yourself to make sure you do not dream and realize this: these kinds of radical brand new information adding mutations have never been recorded.
O yes, there are a few rare cases of mutations that cause re-ordering of the existing information in such a way that it can be seen as 'new'. But it is no addition of new amounts of information. These are not the kind of spectacular mutations we need to change a fish into a bird. 99% of all known mutations are negative for the organism, not helpful at all. They are often a loss of information.
Of course there are mutations that help the offspring to survive better in their environment, like a bird born with a larger beak is suddenly able to eat larger nuts. But that is not new information: it is a change in the existing information. It causes variation in the bird, but it will not turn the bird into something completely different. Yes, there are mutations that cause variations within the boundaries of a kind, but that is not evolution. Evolution is the complete transformation of one organism to something 500% different, like a reptile changing into a bird. Get the picture?
If evolution was true, information adding mutations should be observable everywhere, all throughout history. They would be the most observable phenomenon on this planet. Nobody could ever doubt it, because we know: everything that exists is the result of these information adding mutations. But the truth is scientists are still looking for them.
Think about the amazing complexity of nature. there are millions of completely different organisms. A lion is extremely different from a giraffe or a hippo, a frog is completely different from a dolphin or a penguin, a man is completely different from a dog or a goldfish, etc. The millions of species on earth all have their own genetic information. The amount of information adding mutations that are needed for these millions of living beings is incredible. It should absolutely be the most known phenomenon on earth, all through history. But it is not present, nobody has ever seen such a mutation.
And this is the engine, the driving force, the secret of evolution? Sorry, is this science or a fairytale? Who are we fooling?
There are many, many, many more facts like this. Facts about fossils, facts about earth layers, facts about dating theories, facts about the origin of man, countless facts… that all say the same thing: evolution is no proven fact, it is a theory that does not have a true basis in reality. I will not present all of these facts here, because that would become a book. But what I have explained facts is already so clear, that I believe it should at least set you on a course of daring to ask some hard questions about this so called 'proven theory' that is worshipped and defended by most of the scientific community.
Scientists must worship evolution
What I didn't tell you yet is that there are thousands of scientists who reject the theory of evolution… But they are in trouble. Some have lost jobs, funding, respect… The moment scientists utter questions about evolution, they lose every chance of a succesful scientific carreer, because they are immediately labeled 'religious' and thus no longer trustworthy scientists, simply because they realize that evolution is not the final answer.
Clinging to an unproven theory is called scientific, and has even become the condition to be accepted in the global scientific comunity.
There is a documentary called 'Expelled' that interviews scientists wo have lost jobs, funding, positions, etc. because they dared question evolution. They asked the wrong questions. It is not allowed anymore to ask questions about the validity of evolution. You must believe it, confess it, preach it, otherwise you are not accepted in the scientific world. That is why you ONLY see the theory of evolution presented in musea, documentaries, science classes and you never see a huge, expensive exposition touring the world explaining that there is a Creator who made this planet and allliving beings. You don't see beautiful nature documentaries explaining all this stunning beauty has been created by an amazing Creator. No, that is called religion, so it gets no funding.
But the defense of an unproven theory, and the many efforts to convince the masses that it is proven, is funded by the government, TV stations, and the science community.
Silly, isn't it? It seems too absurd to be true. But I have come to realize that this world is full of things that are too absurd to be true. Millions in the western world are dying because they eat too much, while most of the world is dying because of a lack of food. This world is full of absurdities. The theory of evolution and the way people are being indoctrinated by it, is one of them. Time to wake up. It's better to be awake and live in truth (with the painful consequenses) than to live easy and lie to yourself (and others). Right?
These are some books you may want to read, if you want to know if I belong in a mental institution or if I am writing truth here. You find a few here: Refuting evolution (Jonathan Sarfati), Darwin on trial (Philip Johnson), Bones of contention (Marvin Lubenow), Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome (John Sandford). There are many more, but you have to start somewhere. Of course all these books are labeled as unscientific by the worldwide evolutionary establishment. But read them first and then judge for yourself.
Religion or reality?
And indeed, once you realize that evolution is a fraud, you become open to discover the other option: Intelligence, Power, Creativity, the One who made all this beauty and these stunning technical masterpieces.
That has nothing to do with religion, it's reality.
When you take a good look at the theory of evolution, well, there is one heck of a religion: blinding the eyes of the followers, making them furiously aggressive towards anyone who dares to believe otherwise, excommunicating anyone who asks hard questions and waging a 'holy' war to covert all mankind to their belief system.
I'd rather be labeled 'religious' because I have chosen for reality, than to be someone who ignores truth for the sake of his beliefs.
