What About Theistic Evolution?

From The Collapse of Evolution by Scott Huse.  Huse list 24 contrasts between the Bible and evolutionary thinking to show how theistic evolution is Biblically impossible.  Here are just ten of them:

1.  Bible:  God spoke all of creation into existence (Gen. 1)
     Evolution:  Natural chance processes can account for the existence of all things.

2.  Bible:  World created in six regular days.  (Gen. 1)
     Evolution:  World evolved over eons.

3.  Bible:  Creation is completed.  (Gen. 2:3)
     Evolution:  New life forms are still emerging.

4.  Bible:  Ocean before land  (Gen. 1:2)
     Evolution:  Land before oceans.

5.  Bible:  Light for the Earth before the sun (Gen. 1:3-19)
     Evolution:  Sun was the only light for the Earth

6.  Bible:  First life is on land (Gen 1:11)
     Evolution:  Marine organisms evolved first.

7.  Bible:  Earth before sun and stars (Gen. 1:14-19)
     Evolution:  Sun and stars before Earth.

8.  Bible:  Atmosphere between two hydrospheres (Gen. 1:7)
     Evolution:  Continguous atmosphere and hydrosphere.

9.  Bible:  Fixed and distinct kinds.  (Gen. 1:11, 12, 21,24, 25; 1 Cor. 15:38-39)
     Evolution:  Life forms in a continual state of flux.

10.  Bible:  Man's sin the cause of death (Rom. 8:20-22)
       Evolution:  Struggle and death existent long before the evolution of man.
