Do You Believe That Evolution Is True?
If so, then provide an answer to the following questions. "Evolution" in this
context is the idea that natural, undirected processes are sufficient to account for the existence
of all natural things.
1. Something from nothing?
The "Big Bang", the most widely accepted theory of the beginning of the universe, states that
everything developed from a small dense cloud of
subatomic particles and radiation which exploded, forming hydrogen (and some helium) gas.
Where did this energy/matter come from? How reasonable is it to assume it came into being
from nothing? And even if it did come into being, what would cause it to explode? We know
from common experience that explosions are destructive and lead to disorder. How reasonable
is it to assume that a "big bang" explosion produced the opposite effect - increasing
"information", order and the formation of useful structures, such as stars and planets, and
2. Physical laws an accident?
We know the universe is governed by several fundamental physical laws, such as
electromagnetic forces, gravity, conservation of mass and energy, etc. The activities of our
universe depend upon these principles just like a computer program depends upon the
existence of computer hardware with an instruction set. How reasonable is it to say that these
great controlling principles developed by accident?
3. Order from disorder?
The Second Law of Thermodynamics may be the most verified law of science. It states that
systems become more disordered over time, unless energy is supplied and directed to create
order. Evolutionists say that the opposite has taken place - that order increased over time,
without any directed energy. How can this be?
ASIDE: Evolutionists commonly object that the Second Law applies to closed, or isolated
systems, and that the Earth is certainly not a closed system (it gets lots of raw energy from the
Sun, for example). However, all systems, whether open or close
