As I was driving down the highway last week, a thought – nay, a revelation – struck me suddenly. And for some reason I heard this in the voice of Andy Rooney, using his signature “Did ya’ ever notice how….” line. The amazing thing is that this thought had not occurred to me many years ago. Oh, so you want to know the thought? Well, as Andy would have said it, “Did ya’ ever notice how evolution only seems to work on Earth?”
Think about that for a few minutes, and roll it around in your mind a few times.
The whole idea of evolution, the spontaneous generation of single-celled life from dust and gas and rocks and time and luck and… It all seems absurd. But even more absurd is the thought that those single-celled things “evolve” into fish then frogs then lizards then rabbits then monkeys then people! Given enough time, the evolutionists say this will happen. Okay, for a few short seconds here, let’s give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they are right. If so, then there should be all sorts of “tweener” critters wandering all over the place, right? So where are they? But I digress…
If the “science” of evolution is right, then this amazing and spontaneous generation of life from stuff should occur on other planets, too. Life adapted to cooler temperatures and the high carbon dioxide atmosphere of Mars should be abounding on that planet, while the warmer weather and higher atmospheric pressure on Venus should support some really tough life forms. Here on Earth we have life forms that don’t use oxygen, and some that can withstand extreme temperatures and pressure, so why haven’t those kind of critters appeared and evolved into complex beings similar to mankind on the other planets?
Did ya’ ever notice how evolution never produces anything as simple as a golf pencil, but instead can grow an amoeba into a person? I’m sorry, I still don’t have enough faith to believe in evolution!
