I saw an article today that claimed it had proof for evolution. The “proof” was the bones of a young girl that died in an underground cave 12 to 13 thousand years ago and had different characteristics than that of her descendants, such as different facial structure and appearance. I marvel at the incessant attempts to manufacture evidence for a theory that cannot be substantiated. I say this because of a number of reasons. First, change within a species is not proof of evolution. Evolution holds that life is evolving in complexity and that it crosses the universal law of God that each species reproduces after its own kind. Their position claims that it is a slow process and takes tremendous amounts of time, but archaeological evidence shows just the opposite. One of the evidences that they give is the example of the Eohippus. 50 million years ago it was about the size of a dog and had multiple toes. Today it is much larger and now has hoofs. This is an example of change within a species, which no one denies. But the Eohippus never became another species, like say a monkey. It has always remained within the same species. Furthermore, there is not one single evidence of any species ever becoming another species. This is true for all species whether small or large; simple or complex.
Second, the archaeological evidence shows just the opposite change from what evolution claims. Instead of life generating into greater and greater levels of life, we see a degenerating of life from complexity to simplicity. For example, the hoofs of the horse have changed from the complexity of toes to a single hoof without joints. In the example of man, the evolutionist hold that man is getting better and better. They support their position with the extended knowledge of man, his longer life over the last hundred to two hundred years and his increased height. If man were evolving upward, we would see man becoming a higher life form. He would be doing an increasingly better job in relating with others, and in caring for one another. Instead, what we see even with the increased knowledge, is a world with the means and intent to destroy others. We see greater degrees of degradation, bodily mutilation, opression and destruction. We see more wars and less peace. We see mass killings by governments, sometimes in the millions and people reduced to the level of animals. Treachery knows no bounds, just as the Bible says, “times will wax worse and worse.”
Third, it goes against tried and true practice. There is no record of someone planting a seed of any kind and growing a different crop. Every seed reproduces a crop after its own kind. If you plant wheat, you always get wheat, add infinite-um. How confusing life would be if you could not depend on God’s law of like kind. I am fully aware of grafting and it procedures. Yes you can plant an apple tree and after it grows, you can graft a peach limb onto the apple tree and get both peaches and apples from the same trunk, but the apple limbs always grow apples and the peach limb always grows peaches. You do not later find peaches and apples interspersed on the limbs. They retain their genetic structure and just share a common root to supply the nourishment. Furthermore, you will never find this condition without man’s intervention. It never happens naturally.
The evidence does not show evolution but rather degeneration. Our bodies wear out and everyone dies from something. Sin affect all life and has a degenerating effect on all life. It injures, mutilates, destroys and ultimately kills. The only remedy for sin is the blood of Jesus. In Him alone is life.
