“Modern thinking centers around the premise that man is just the product of a pointless natural process (undirected evolution)…If false, this doctrine has been the most insidious and destructive thought system ever devised by man…Modern Darwinism is fundamentally built upon what I will be calling ‘The Primary Axiom’…that man is merely the product of random mutations plus natural selection.”
“The Primary Axiom is actually an extremely vulnerable theory. In fact, it is essentially indefensible. Its apparent invincibility derives largely from bluster, smoke, and mirrors…Every form of objective analysis I have performed has convinced me that the Axiom is clearly false. So now, regardless of the consequences, I have to say it out loud: the Emperor has no clothes! ”
“Man and chimp differ by at least 150 million nucleotides representing at least 40 million hypothetical mutations (Britten, 2002). If man evolved from a chimp-like creature, there were at least 20 million mutations fixed within the human lineage (40 million divided by 2). Yet natural selection could only have selected for 1000 of those. All the rest would have been fixed by random drift, creating millions of nearly neutral deleterious mutations. This would not just have made us inferior to our chimp-like ancestors, it surely would have killed us.”
“Even as we cannot create life, we cannot defeat death. Yet I assert there is One who did create life and who designed the genome. I do not know how He did it but somehow He surely made the hardware, and He surely must have written the original software. He is called the Author of Life (Acts 3:15 – NIV). I believe the Author of Life has the power to defeat death and degeneration. I believe this is the good news.”
