Last month on June 6 in Italy, an interview of three prominent secular scientists was conducted by the Hoover Institute. These men had all come to the same basic conclusion: Darwin’s Origin of Species theory must be abandoned. David Berlinski, David Gelernter, and Stephen Meyer raised doubts about Darwin’s theory in their two books and essay, respectively “The Deniable Darwin,” Darwin’s Doubt, and “Giving Up Darwin” (published in the Claremont Review of Books).
Their conclusions were primarily based on more recent evidence of the unfathomable complexity of living organisms, the design and control code built into DNA, and the mathematical impossibility of useful protein building blocks of life being assembled merely by random chance.
They were finally ready to admit that, no matter how many millions, billions or hundreds of billions of years we give them, the chances of this complex life coming into being by chance is absolutely nil.
Surprisingly, only one of the three was ready to concede that there must be some form of intelligent design behind it all. And so, only that one, Stephen Meyer, was fully willing to accept the irrefutable facts of intelligent design that all three had before their eyes.
We are blessed to be able to know that God our Creator is the Intelligent Designer behind all life. When one looks at biology and the marvelously complex order of all things in creation from that perspective, everything makes more sense, and the pieces of the puzzle of life begin to fit together.
Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
