How is evolution anti science?
First let’s define evolution. Evolution is a belief lower animals evolved or changed into higher animals. Fish evolve into reptiles, dinosaurs into birds, apes into man.
Here are four ways evolution is not science.
- In the Middle Ages most people in Europe believed rats and flies came from garbage, and mice came from stored grain. People saw there were always rats and flies in garbage dumps and mice seemed to be in stored grain. In 1668 a man placed some garbage in a sterile jar under a screen and watched. What do you think happened? Nothing! The conclusion? Rats and flies came from parent rats and flies! So a new scientific law was put into place. It’s called the law of biogenesis: life comes from life. Evolution requires we break that most basic scientific law.
- First Law of Thermodynamics states energy and mass cannot originate from nothing.
- Second Law of Thermodynamics states given time everything will become more random and disordered. Everything breaks down. If you put your bike out into a field and come back in fifty years, you could see how your bike has broken down with rust. Evolution needs everything to build up, but what we see is a universe that is breaking down.
- Every gene contains DNA which has an incredible amount of information that makes each one of us who we are. Information has to come from information, and science cannot give an example of information not coming from information. God has to be the Creator. There is no other option. Evolution cannot work because new genetic information is needed whenever a higher form of life appears. In order for a fish to grow legs, new information must be encoded into the DNA. For a reptile to grow feathers when evolving into birds, new information must be encoded into the DNA. For an ape to evolve into a human, new information must be encoded into the DNA. This new information must be added as well as replace old information with new instructions to grow legs, feathers, or human traits. Nowhere in science has anyone witnessed such new information going into DNA.
Evolution is anti-science because it breaks certain scientific laws and because you can’t add new information into the DNA.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
