Belief in evolution is a religion

A look at one of the definitions of religions, and an analysis of evolution's teachings and those who believe in it.

According to Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary...

Webster's seventh new collegiate dictionary has several definitions for the word religion. The fourth one is, " a cause, principal, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith."

The evolutionists belief

The evolutionist believes that the universe can be completely explained entirely apart from supernatural intervention. All the natural laws and processes somehow or other came into being. Energy and matter also came into being strictly through these natural processes. The evolutionist believes that the natural laws and processes came into being and stabilized of their own accord, and are continuing to function today as they have been for thousands of years. The evolutionist also believes that matter either came into existence out of nothing, or else that it has always existed in some form or another.

The problem with that belief is...

But the scientific law of cause and effect will not allow for anything to come into existence without a "first cause". The believer, by faith, accepts the Bible's testimony, "in the beginning, God." The believer accepts that God is the "uncaused first cause". The evolutionist who rejects or ridicules the idea of God has no answer to the question of an uncaused first cause, or of a source from which all things originated.

The problem in discussing "origins"

The great problem in discussing the origin of the universe and solar system is that it cannot be discovered through the scientific method. The scientific method involves experiments with the purpose of discovering the result, and those steps being repeatable, so that they can be demonstrated again and again. No one was around to observe the original creation, so we are forced to look around at everything around us and draw our conclusions. The Christian has the testimony of the Bible, God's word, to explain the origin of the universe, our solar system, and how life came about on this earth.
When the Bible is rejected, the origin of all things becomes a guessing game with many unanswered questions. While the evolutionist wants us to believe that everything is constantly changing and moving forward, this isn't the case. The basic laws of nature are constant and unchanging, and this is also the case with the nature of matter and energy. Man has never seen or experienced a change in the law of gravity, and according to natural law, water continues to freeze at 0°C and to boil it 100°C. There is no hint or evidence that any of the laws of nature or science by themselves evolving. The law of gravity, the law of thermodynamics, the laws of motion and all the other laws of nature are working as they always have, which contradicts evolutionary thinking.

According to the evolutionist...

Those who believe in evolution speak confidently and strongly about it being a reality. One evolutionist said, "most enlightened persons now accept as a fact that everything in the cosmos from heavenly bodies to human beings has developed and continues to develop through evolutionary processes." Another has said, "evolution comprises all the stages of the development of the universe, the cosmic, biological and human or cultural developments. Life is a product of the evolution of inorganic nature and man is a product of the evolution of life."
The evolutionist wants us to believe that everything came into existence without any intelligence behind it, and that life could come from nonlife, and that from the smallest one celled organism everything around us could come into existence. But some have been honest enough to admit that they have no answer to the question of what mechanism caused all this to come about. Mutations are harmful, deadly, or useless. Mutations failed to be the answer the evolutionist once thought was correct.
Thus, the evolutionary formula for making the universe: nothing plus nothing equals two elements plus vast amounts of time equals 92 natural elements equals all physical laws and a completely structured universe of galaxies, systems, stars, planets, and the moons orbiting those planets all perfectly balanced and ordered. It is easy to see why evolution fits the definition of a religion.

Those who happen to believe in creation are considered ignorant and nonscientific, and are constantly ridiculed in the scientific community. Attempts have even been made by atheistic evolutionary scientists to revoke the earned degrees of scientists who have announced their belief in creation by supernatural means or by the God of the Bible.

Not all scientists believe in evolution

But belief in creation as stated in the Bible is not a sign of ignorance or lack of education. In the 1974 book entitled Scientific Creationism – The Public-School Edition – we are told in footnote 3 on page 8 that the Creation Research Society had over 500 scientists with Masters and PhD degrees among its list of members, all believing in supernatural creation by God.

Back to the Bible

The Bible gives us the answer for the origin of the universe, the origin of the solar system, and all life on this planet, including man. An Intelligent Creator behind the laws of nature, the laws of physics, the laws of thermodynamics, along with the perfect operating of these systems, and the correct placement of all things in our solar system, makes more sense than an unplanned, random series of many accidents that resulted in all that we see around us.
