Genesis tells us, rather plainly, several important things, which must, in order for Christianity, and Creation, to be true, stand in total antithesis to Evolutionary theory.


Physical matter is of supernatural, not natural, origin.

This, obviously, is a place the two views stand in complete antithesis. The Creation view is that God, from His own power, and His own Word, created everything that we consider “natural”. Nature itself, and all it contains, is a product of the Will and Word of God. The Evolutionary views vary. There is a view that matter, space, time, and energy have always existed. There is a view that says that it all came into existence Ex Nihilo, in a similar manner to God’s creation of it. There is still another view which says that energy has always existed – and that everything else resulted from a change from energy into matter.


Man is of supernatural origin, and created in the image of God – Not the product of eons of progressive changes, resulting in what is now known as man.

Evolutionary theory once again stands in total antithesis to Creation theory. Evolution says that man is nothing “special” – only his own uniqueness makes him special. If even that. He is simply the product of blind chance – a (dare I say miraculous?) step by step occurrence which has led to modern man, as he now stands, on his own two feet. Creation, and, specifically, Judeo-Christian thought, holds man to be in the image of God Himself – and thus worthy of dignity and importance, as a reflection of the awesome God who created Him.


Man is an improvement upon all that came before – and can improve still further. This contrasts with the Judeo-Christian thought forms which hold man to be created perfect, distinct, and as he is seen today – with one crucial difference. Man has Fallen, and is thus regressing, not progressing.

This is a very, very crucial difference. Evolution holds that man may perfect himself – and that this is the inevitable nature of things. Creation holds that man was already perfect- and that his relationship with God maintained that perfection. Once his relationship with God was damaged – so was man. The ills and evils of mankind since are a reflection of a process of regression – not progression. I cannot stress enough what a significant difference this makes. In one, man is inherently good – and can become still better. In the other, man is inherently evil – and must seek out the source of his original perfection.

Is there any reconciliation possible between these two views of the very fabric of our existence?


When we look at nature, and say “this is all there is” – we forget what we all ask, and have within the very weave of our souls – “is this all there is?”

We must answer the first – “No, it isn’t.” We must answer the second – “No – and we will know what else there is, as we already know that there is more.”

Evolution discards the soul. We know we have souls. We know that these souls are missing something – just as all of nature seems to be missing something. That something is our Creator, and nature’s Supernatural.

We dare not, we must not, and we cannot look an enemy in the face – and turn away as if it is irrelevant. We made that crucial mistake when this enemy first appeared – and we dare not continue. We cannot look at naturalism – at evolution – and spit in our Creator’s face by saying “so what if they deny you?” Romans warns us what excuses exist, for those who deny their Creator. None. His Creation, regardless of attempts to deny it’s Creator, stands as a testament to His power, His majesty, and His creativity – as do we. Despite the philosophical dexterity accompanying the devaluation of man, while simultaneously exalting his attributes – we should take it as a warning. If we exalt the natural – we dethrone the supernatural – we dethrone God – and take His place as the pinnacle. When we take over the pinnacle – we set ourselves up as God.

This is the result of evolutionary theory. The rise of humanism – the rise of human pride. We follow in the footsteps of someone else who thought to usurp God’s place – and follow him to his eventual destination.

So, can we say “So what” to evolution? No. Never.
