Right at the outset, let me make it clear that in my view it is reasonable to conclude that some form of evolutionary process was used by God to create life. Scripture says a day is like a thousand years for God, so the time issue isn’t the show-stopper many think it is.
But claiming evolution provides the only acceptable answers to all questions about the origins of life on Earth is just as close-minded as saying “the Bible says God did it in six days and that settles it.”
The fact is that there are important issues that evolutionary theory, as it is currently developed, has answers about which equally smart, reasonable people can disagree and there are questions for which evolution’s answers are purely speculative.
Scientists and philosophers like Dr. Stephen Meyer are often derided in mainstream culture but they deserve respect and a genuine hearing just as did Galileo and the Greeks like Pythagoras before him who challenged the conventional wisdom about a flat earth.
If you have an open mind and are willing to be challenged to think “out of the box” on these issues, Meyer’s recently released five-minute PragerU video should be a delight:
