This is species evolution, and will be discussed in the chapters on Fossils (chapter 17), Ancient Man (chapter 18), Natural Selection (chapter 13), Mutations (chapter 14), and Species Evolution (chapter 15).MAGICAL TIME Yet it is thought that time can somehow produce evolution, if there is enough time in which to do it!For a man who does not believe in a miracle, a slow miracle would be just as incredible as a swift one."*G. Chesterton (1925)."The theory of evolution gives no answer to the important problem of the origin of life and presents only fallacious solutions to the problem of the nature of evolutive transformations . We are condemned to believe in evolution, but we will always search for a suggestion concerning the methods of transformations . Perhaps we are now in a worse position than in 1859 because we have searched for one century and we have the impression that the various hypotheses [of how evolution could have occurred] are now exhausted.
When we look at those facts, as available from ancient studies of all types, we find that recorded history goes back only several thousand years.Aside from the known inherent weaknesses in assumption and methodology (which we shall begin discussing shortly),we cannot even verify those dates objectively.Not even uranium dating can be confirmed, for no one has sat around watching uranium decay for thousands or millions of years, and testing its decay loss rate from time to time.Much scientific effort has been expended in an attempt to show that eons of time are available for evolution."Just what is time? It is merely a lot of past moments just like the present moment. Since a living creature would have to come into existence all at once suddenly, in all its parts--in order to survive, it matters not how many ages we pile onto the watching; nothing is going to happen! It surely is not scientific to imagine that perhaps it came true when no one was looking.Imagine yourself staring at a dirt pile or at some seawater, at a time when there was nothing alive in the world but yourself. There is no evidence that self-originating life or evolving life is happening now, has ever happened, or could ever happen.*G.Before that time, we have absolutely no verification for any supposed dating method of science.(More evidence on this will be found in chapters 6 and 18, Age of the Earth, and Ancient Man.)If human beings have been on this planet for over a million years, as theorized by evolutionists, then we should have a large amount of structures and written records extending back at least 500,000 years.This will be covered in the chapters, Primitive Environment (chapter 9), and DNA (chapter 10).Third, evolution of living organisms into more advanced life forms by natural selection or mutations.The evolutionist tells us that, given enough time, all the insurmountable obstacles to spontaneous generation will somehow vanish and life can suddenly appear, grow, and flourish.In the next three chapters, we will learn that even split-second, continuous, multiple chemical activity going on for ages, and using all time and all space in the universe to carry on that activity, could not accomplish what is needed.
