Today, the theories of evolution and generally accepted as proven facts – but all the missing links still remain missing and the further discoveries of the intricate designs in nature are quickly swept under the carpet with terms like: ‘the miracle of creation’. Yet many stubbornly refuse to even consider there may be a Creator behind creation.

A good tracker soon finds where someone or something has been by following various signs of progression. If no evidence is found, the tracker quickly concludes he is on the wrong track.
Charles Darwin (father of the theory of evolution) argued that accumulated small changes eventually lead to new species. If this were so we would be able to track these changes to their origin. However, no fossils have been found to link one species with another – the missing links still remain missing.
Darwin also stated (in Origin of Species, 6th edition, New York University Press, 1988. P. 154), that if it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which ‘could not’ possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, his theory would break down.
As science has developed, we learn that many organs are too complex to be reduced by numerous, successive, slight modifications. Dr Michael J Behe, professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University concludes ‘no one … can give a detailed account of how the cilium, or vision, or blood clotting, or any complex biochemical process might have developed in a Darwinian fashion.’(Behe p. 187).
However, supporters of evolution claim that it’s not impossible but merely improbable that organs, such as the eyeball, have evolved. The honest evolutionist will admit their theories are extremely improbable, but conversely they believe the existence of God is more improbable than evolution, so they conclude one belief is fact while the other is fiction based on their gamble of improbabilities.
So what should we think? Since science has come to so many dead ends tracking evolution, maybe it’s time to admit it’s on the wrong track. We should take Darwin’s own advice and bin his theories, then start considering the complex design behind nature and the One who designed it.
