It is simply not true. Actually, it is just a fairy tale for adults based on ancient pagan religious philosophy that hundreds of millions of people around the world choose to believe with blind faith. When asked to produce evidence for the theory of evolution, most adults in the western world come up totally blank. This kind of anti-intellectualism even runs rampant on our college campuses.
The Theory of Evolution is widely believed and defended. A few billion years ago - back when Earth was new - rivers rolled down from barren mountains into great dead seas. Rainstorms squalled and lightning flashed. Lava hissed and spewed from giant volcanoes.
Nothing lived on that long-ago Earth. But the oceans were astir with promise - they swirled and simmered a primordial soup that held the raw materials of life.
A nondescript glob of chemicals crossed some vague and wondrous boundary to become the first living thing. From such unfeeling chemicals, Earth eventually filled with a teeming diversity of life, from microbes to Men.
Most people hear it many times in schools, museums, books, and the public media. Evolution may be defined as the belief that, multiplied millions of years ago, life began by natural causes from nonliving matter; then gradually that original life changed till from it came all the modern kinds of plants and animals including man.
Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, demonstrated the influence of evolutionary doctrine when he said: The Bible teaches that the all-wise, all-powerful, eternal God created the universe and all the forms of life in it, including people. So evolution and creation are two fundamentally competing beliefs about the origin of the universe, life, and mankind.
Some people speculate that we can believe both the Bible and evolution: Theistic evolutionists say that all living things evolved from an original life form, but God began and directed the process.
Progressive creationists claim that, from time to time over a period of billions of years, God intervened to make major changes but then allowed nature to gradually develop what had been made.
Such people cannot, of course, take Genesis 1 literally, so they say it is symbol or legend. But is it possible to believe both the Bible and major tenets of evolution? Does evolution necessarily contradict the Bible? Can a person defend evolution and still be a faithful Christian? May Christians believe that "creation" involved sudden major changes caused by God but followed by gradual natural changes over billions of years?
We will not here discuss much scientific evidence for creation or against evolution, though such a study can be profitable.

June 4, January 8, by The only alternative explanation of the sudden appearance of so many complex animal types in the Cambrian era is divine creation and both reject this alternative.” #13 Anyone that believes that the theory of evolution has “scientific origins.
Nor will we emphasize the reasons why we believe the Bible. In this study we simply wish to see if the Bible can be harmonized with evolution or progressive creation. Consider these contradictions between evolution and the Bible doctrine of creation: Evolution Is a Major Doctrine of Unbelievers.
True, some people claim to believe evolution and also believe in God. But all unbelievers accept evolution. And believing evolution weakens faith in God.The terms "creation theory," "evolution theory," "creations science," and "evolution science" are appropriate as long as it is clear that the use of such terms denote certain inferences about the history of origins which employ scientific data rather than referring to testable scientific theories.
