Did ya’ ever notice how…?

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!

    Right on Ken. You can’t have a watch without a watchmaker.

    • Single-celled life is so much more complex than a watch, yet the evolutionists would have us believe that with enough time and luck it just happened! Thanks for stopping by, Jim!

    Super knowledgeable evolutionists know it’s a miracle even a single planet in the cosmos houses life, but they don’t encourage this knowledge in the masses; they might get the wrong idea.
    Super knowledgeable evolutionists know there had to be billions of transitional forms for their system to have worked, but imagining a semi-chicken/egg or anything else makes ordinary people laugh and recognize the absurdity of the belief system.
    Super knowledgeable evolutionists understand why we look for planets with liquid water and plenty of carbon to be hosts for life, but they don’t explain why these are mandatory ingredients for bodily life forms to the masses, they might feel grateful.
    You’re right, it takes way more faith to believe in evolution than our Almighty Creator.
    But if there’s a Designer, there’s an Owner’s Manual, and who wants to be told how things are supposed to be done from outside?
    God bless!

    • You’re spot-on, Cheri! Thanks for contributing and for the chuckle I got each time I read the oxymoron, “super knowledgeable evolutionists!”

        Now, that’s not true. They can have tons of knowledge, they just use it for the wrong purposes, ala I Corinthians 1.

    You are right, Ken. I think most honest scientists have been able to admit for the last 30 years that there is insufficient evidence for macroevolution. They lack a plausible theory of origins that does not include a Creator. Ever wonder why they are spending billions of dollars to look for signs of life in outer space? They need some other theory of origins besides God, because if God created the universe, then God must be listened to and obeyed.

    • Isn’t it amazing how fearful people can be of admitting that there is a higher power, and One who is really in charge? For believers, He provides comfort. Thanks Kathy!
