Evolution Is Just a Fairy Tale

by Terry W. Benton

The modern crime labs have a hard time reconstructing a murder that happened just last week, but doing so depends on a variety of pieces of evidence. A body and a weapon is not enough to tell who, why, where, and how this crime developed. So, they pursue fingerprints, hair that they might be able to trace to a potential suspect. They find a suspect. Now, they must find additional testimony from the suspect, such as when he was last at that scene, verbal testimony that will give them a greater knowledge base to work with and eventually get some eyewitness testimony or circumstantial evidence, maybe timing and motive can be discovered. The man is only a potential suspect until there is better evidence. The physical evidence is not enough and is wholly subject to imagination only at this point.

Yet, the modern evolutionist is imagining the origin and development of life on far less evidence. They throw around millions of years without any data. They find a bee fossilized in amber and date it at 80 million years. They cannot find another one for over 40 million years of history, but they theorize that it could have gotten started 40 million years before their oldest fossil (which itself is a suspicious and assumption-filled means of dating). Then they find a tree with apparent bee nests that is supposedly 140 million years older than their oldest bee fossil. Can you believe that nothing happened in 140 million years to encase another bee in amber? Can you believe that another bee could not be encased in amber in just 1 million years before the 80 million year old sample? Yet this is how the naturalists operate and pass along their theories as "science".

We are supposed to believe that the modern crime lab cannot reconstruct a murder from a week ago with just the visible evidence at the scene of the body and weapon, but the modern naturalist can reconstruct all of the history of the universe, the solar system, the development of life from non-life, and the supposed branches of life from the common ancestor by inflating guesses into millions of years and refusing to listen to available eyewitness testimony (God's testimony in the record of the Bible). One naturalist will say the bee came before the flower and another says they developed together about the same time. How do we explain a million years without fossils? No problem! You just imagine it and it becomes "science". Those who do not think this way are not scientists. When you are a true naturalistic scientist you can get away with imagining 140 million years of bee existence without fossils being left behind. It's simple. You find a bee nest in 220 million year old tree and subtract the 80 million year old bee fossil you have from that, and you get 140 million years of bee life with a story you can write any way you want to. After all, if you never mention God, the Creator, the rule of naturalism is that you are free to write the story of history with 1% data and 99% imagination. All they have to do is kiss the frog and imagine what happens next.

"Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things - and the things that are not - to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God - that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord" (I Corinthians 1:26-31, NIV).
