Changing Definition of Evolution: It's A Shell Game

Tails I Win, Heads You Lose... that's what's going on with evolution.

What is evolution?

(Kerkut, G.A. [1927–2004], Implications of Evolution, Pergamon, Oxford, UK, p. 157, 1960)

“There is a theory which states that many living animals can be observed over the course of time to undergo changes so that new species are formed. This can be called the ‘Special Theory of Evolution’ and can be demonstrated in certain cases by experiments. On the other hand there is the theory that all the living forms in the world have arisen from a single source which itself came from an inorganic form. This theory can be called the ‘General Theory of Evolution’ and the evidence that supports it is not sufficiently strong to allow us to consider it as anything more than a working hypothesis. It is not clear whether the changes that bring about speciation are of the same nature as those that brought about the development of new phyla. The answer will be found in future experimental work and not by the dogmatic assertions that the General Theory of Evolution must be correct because there is nothing else that will satisfactorily take its place.”

Notice there are two definions of "evolution." There is the 'Special Theory of Evolution' and there is the 'General Theory of Evolution.' Both are commonly referred using the word "evolution," sometimes simply referred to as "change over time." And that's how you get fooled.

When someone says, "Look at all the proof evolution actually happens! You can see species changing." They are referring to the 'Special Theory of Evolution (STE).' We all agree. Things change. Species may die out and new species develop.

BUT then...

But now comes the ol' switch-a-roo. The next statement is, "We know evolution [now meaning the General Theory of Evolution] happened." The definition of "evolution" has changed from "change within a species" to now be "all living things came from a single source which came from an inorganic materials." There is zero proof supporting the General Theory of Evolution (GTE). Zero. Nothing. But with this simple switch in the definition of the word "evolution," people are convinced there is proof.

Don't be fooled. For the General Theroy of Evolution to be true there must be an increase in complexity of organisms, which results from an increase in information in DNA. Mutations in DNA damage the DNA, and that sometimes results in a benefit for the organism. But, the orgaism has lost information. It has gone downhill. Sections of DNA can be swapped between organisms. But that is not creating any new information, it is simply using existing information.

The Good News

What makes this good news is the bad news about you:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

Sin means breaking the law. In this case God's law. This is bad news because perfection is required by God. Lawbreakers must pay the just penalty for breaking the law. That penalty is the lake of fire (the second death).

All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8

Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.'

You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...

Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true, and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
