The Evolution Illusion
1 Corinthians 1:20
Evolutionary biologists like to give people the impression that they are unbiased individuals who follow the evidence wherever it leads. If only this were true!
As I pointed out in my book In the Minds of Men, ever since the publication of Darwin's Origin of the Species in 1859, scientists have consistently interpreted natural phenomena in a way that appears to provide evidence to support the theory of evolution. Some of these interpretations have turned out to be based on faulty observation, some on faulty reasoning, and some on blatant fraud. When you look at the so-called evidence up close, you'll see that evolution is just an illusion.
Darwin's theory of evolution has, in many minds, displaced the biblical creation account of our origins. For those who hold to evolution, it is vitally important to cling to any evidence for evolution, no matter how flawed that evidence might be. For the same reason, there is an extreme reluctance in the scientific community to even consider new evidence that does not support evolution.
The idea that scientists think rationally and fairly is a simplistic myth. Looking inside the ivory towers of science, we find the familiar power establishments, personality conflicts and intellectual blind spots that are present in any other profession. In other words, they are fallen human beings who are unwilling to be illuminated by the light that emanates from every page of God's Word.
