When you think of creationism, everybody thinks of the young earth creationism. We automatically assume that the Biblical account of creation in Genesis refers to a literal 24-hour day. I am probably going to alienate some Dispatch readers, but I believe that the math of science and astronomy has proven that the age of the Earth and the Universe is billions of years old.
It proves that the “day” in Genesis was intended to mean a “long period of time.” However, the creation versus naturalistic evolution debate does not hinge on the age of the Earth. Rather, the debate is primarily over the origins of man and the existence of God.
Intelligent Design’s irreducible complexity answers the question regarding the existence of a Creator God “in the beginning,” and the specificity that is required in creation. The universe could not have been created by random chance and natural selection because of how every component of the universe has to be specifically exact. However, if science is correct and the Earth is billions of years old, then what if the science does prove that the origins of man was created over billions of years from a common ancestor to humanity (the pinnacle of creation)?
Our problem is not with the science behind the process from common ancestor to Man. The naturalistic evolutionists in the scientific community have controlled how we define the scientific terms. We automatically assume the scientific process from common ancestor to humanity is the process of evolution. We have been erroneously defining this scientific process from the beginning, and letting the Naturalists remove the Potter (God) from the process.
I am not saying that I completely agree with theistic-evolution or biologos. Except for natural selection and random chance, let us assume that the process from a common ancestor to humanity is true for a minute. I submit that this process is not evolution.
We were specifically and purposefully created and molded like clay by the Potter of the universe from a common ancestor to the pinnacle of the Potter’s creation: Man. We did not evolve from a common ancestor. Intelligent Design’s irreducible complexity of the universe and man disproves the natural selection and random chance of naturalistic evolution.
The Science of Creation submits we were specifically and purposefully created and molded over billions of years from a common ancestor into what we are today by the Creator God, which is proven by the science of irreducible complexity in Intelligent Design. We are too complex to have evolved in a natural process. We had to have been specifically molded by a Creator. It is the process of creation, not evolution. When are we going to start defining terms correctly, instead of letting the Naturalists control the realm of science?
