A: The “evolution versus creation” issue is not a battle between “science” and “non-science.” Rather it is a war of worldviews. All scientists—whether creationist or evolutionist—draw conclusions about our unobservable origins in accord with their own worldview-based presuppositions. Their presuppositions determine how they interpret data about a long ago time that they cannot recreate in a laboratory. Being a biblical “creationist” does not make a person a non-scientist. Rather, a creation scientist understands that God’s eyewitness account of our origins provides the only reliable framework for interpreting scientific data relevant to the origins question.
Scientists evaluate testable hypotheses using experiments that are observed and measured in the present. From such scientific pursuits, countless technological and medical breakthroughs emerge. But when scientists try to apply those same scientific principles to learn about the origin of the universe and life, they must rely on assumptions that reflect the worldview of the scientists making them.
Why do we care what people believe about our origins? We know that when people realize that the Word of God does not conflict with the observed facts of science, they are more likely to accept the Bible’s explanation for not only our origins but also for why the world is full of sin and suffering. And then, seeing that we are all sinners in rebellion against a loving Creator, we pray that many will come to trust the provision that our Creator has made for our eternal salvation and abundant life through Jesus Christ.
Read the whole article to see how assumptions about our origins determine how we interpret evidence.
In this powerful book, you will find ammunition for the war: answers to some of the most common arguments for evolution, analysis of Christian compromise and a call for a return to true biblical authority.
