Is Evolution a Scientific Fact?

There are two basic kinds of science in the whole spectrum of the study of science.  They are “operational science” and “historical science.”  Defining which of the two sciences one is discussing can prevent much confusion and conflict.  Operational science involves observation and experimentation, while historical science is the study of past events.  Yet, the conflict between science and religion occurs in historical science, not in operational science.  When it comes to working out what happened in the past,
historical science is limited because experiments on past events and history cannot be repeated.  Experiments done in the present that relate to the past  require a great deal of guesswork.  Therefore, the theory of evolution is based upon belief, NOT SCIENCE!  Belief, like faith and hope, is not a scientific term but a religious one.  For example, there are many varieties of dogs and cats, but there is no physical evidence of an animal intermediate between a dog and a cat.  Once we get past the “artist’s” interpretation of pictures, charts, and graphs of supposed evidence that we are bombarded with, there is no physical evidence of whale evolution either.  No, not even between an ape and a man!  Similarities, yes, but that does not constitute evolution.  A pick-up truck and a farm tractor both are made with four wheel, an engine, gears, drive shaft, and a steering wheel, but they are not the same even though they both may be found on a farm.  That is what all evolutionary propagandists do.  They twist the similarities to make them out to be the same.  To believe there is an intermediate between apes and humans is a matter of “faith,” not scientific fact based on observation and experimentation!  If evolution were really true, it would be impossible for biologists to develop any kind of classification system because all the divisions of species would run together. The Bible clearly teaches in the books of Genesis and 1 Corinthians that there are differences!

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.  And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.  And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.  (Genesis 1:21,24,25)  KJV

 

All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.  There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.  There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.  (1 Corinthians 15:39-41)  KJV

One needs to be aware that what may be presented as science, regarding the past, may be the scientist’s own personal world view. Understand that evolution is a man-centered world-view, or philosophy, attempting to explain the world apart from a Holy God and His Christ.

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.  (Colossians 2:8)  KJV
