Making Use of Darwin's Day

As many around the world celebrate Darwin's 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his famous work, Origin of the Species, we Christians have many more opportunities to dialogue with Darwinists about the man himself.

So what can you say?

Marvin Olasky, writing for WORLD magazine says, "It's important to know the difference between change within kinds (microevolution) and change from one kind to another (macroevolution). Darwinists who argue for macroevolution often give microevolution examples to "prove" changes"

Let us make clear distinctions about what kind of evolution we are talking about.  Microevolution is no real evolution at all, it is only built-in variance within a kind.

Olasky goes onto say,
"Let's have compassion for Darwinists as they develop desperate theories positing the existence of an infinite number of universes.  Many cloak themselves as objectively scientific, but that can't dodge even what secularists like novelist Kurt Vonnegut acknowledge: "My body and your body are miracles of design. Scientists are pretending they have the answer as to how we got this way when natural selection couldn't possibly have produced such machines."
