The Lie: Evolution



Karl C. Priest August 30, 1997

Life is made up of choices.

Recently, one of the Beetles was interviewed for a televised "documentary type" program. He was with his guru and explained why he (the Beetle) was in India. The wealthy, often idolized, old rock-and-roller said he was looking for answers to: "Who am I? Why am I here? Where did I come from? and Where am I going?" These are questions all people ask and the answers come from the way they view the world.

The key question in the series is "Where did I come from?" There are only two basic answers to that question. The answers are diametrically opposed to each other. One is from the evolutionist worldview and is based upon the belief that all life came by naturalistic means. The other worldview is the creationist position that states life was planned by a supernatural Creator. Both worldviews are based upon faith. Only one of them will lead to the truth.

The purpose of the evolutionist worldview is to show that there is no need for God. The world belongs to man and man sets the rules. Ultimate truth is in the minds of men. Carried to its logical conclusion this leads to billions of truths walking around. Regardless, the evolutionist worldview sees evolution as an explanation for everything and evolution is elevated to the level of god. This worldview starts with nothing and, without reason, progresses to the metaphysical while fervently attempting to stifle the opposing worldview--creationist.

A creationist worldview starts with God and progresses to something which is based upon scripture. The creationist worldview maintains there is a God to be considered and He can hold His creation accountable. He sets the rules and all truth comes from Him. This worldview is so much opposite its alternative that a great conflict (called by different names throughout history) is ongoing. The stakes are extremely high.

Proponents of the evolutionist worldview attempt to censor the creationists by accusing them of trying to force religion into the scientific arena. When censor doesn't work (because evolution is a religious philosophy itself) evolutionists attempt to marginalize creationists as fanatics. It is truly a struggle between ideas and values that effect the principles by which we live and die.

Either God created "in the beginning", or life is a cosmic accident. Either we seek to serve God, or we serve ourselves. We either have a Glorious Hope, or all is hopelessness. There is a choice between the Creator's love and peace, or man's greed and strife. The evolutionist worldview casts man as driven by primitive instincts while the creationist worldview reveals man as having the capacity to make intelligent choices.

Only an intelligent Creator would endow men with the ability to investigate why he (man) is here, who he is, where he came from, and where he is going. We have the choice to believe a lie or the Truth.
