Is Evolution a Fact?

“For if through the trespass of one man [Adam] many died, then how much more has the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.”

— Romans 5:15

Jesus is the second Adam. Through His death He undid the sin of the first Adam for all who believe. But some people today assume that the first Adam is a myth; therefore, they reject the second Adam and His gift of eternal life. They assume that human origin via evolution is a proven fact.

Well, did Darwin present overwhelming facts? It has been noted by scientists that he did not by any means ever demonstrate the origin of any species. He simply showed how there were variations in species. In his classic book, The Origin of Species, the fourth chapter is the key chapter of the book. It deals with natural selection.

Natural selection is a scientific fact, but as one observer noted about a generation before Darwin, it removes the oddities that occur on either side of the spectrum of the species, thus preserving the order of species.

But Darwin tried to transform natural selection into a process that creates new species, and there is not the slightest bit of evidence that such a thing has ever happened. In that one chapter, Darwin uses phrases like this 187 times: “may have been,” “is supposed to,” “perhaps,” “it is probable,” and “I have assumed.” They are not scientific facts at all. Isn’t it tragic that many people reject the fact of Christ to choose instead mere hypothesizing?

Lord God, may we not create any false assumptions about You or Your creation. You have said repeatedly that You are the Creator of heaven and earth, and we believe that You are who You say You are. Increase our trust in You…
