On the creation-evolution debate from Albert Mohler’s blog

Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., serves as president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary — the flagship school of the Southern Baptist Convention and one of the largest seminaries in the world.

In his post today he discusses why the theory of evolution is no mere nuisance to the Christian faith.

No Buzzing Little Fly — Why the Creation-Evolution Debate is So Important

A buzzing little fly is only a nuisance. The theory of evolution is no mere nuisance — it represents one of the greatest challenges to Christian faith and faithfulness in our times.

The folks at BioLogos ended the year 2010 by declaring “The Dawning of a New Day.” Darrel Falk, president of The BioLogos Foundation, wrote with both passion and anticipation as he reviewed the past year and the impact of BioLogos on the evangelical scene. If making a splash was their ambition, they certainly achieved it. And yet, Dr. Falk clearly seems frustrated that the task undertaken by BioLogos is so daunting.

He reports that BioLogos has “barely begun to deal with the issues in a substantive manner.” Furthermore, he explains that the task of convincing evangelical Christians to accept the theory of evolution represents no small challenge. “Why is the task so difficult?” he wonders.

    Biologos Foundation was established for the wrong reasons. It is Francis Collin’s Poster Boy. Francis Collins is a very brilliant Molecular biologist living today. He completed the human genome project which is a milestone in our understanding of the role of genes in health and disease. The structure of DNA is identical in many species. The similarity is observed only at certain points in the DNA.. This does not mean that we evolved from the lower species. Another example is the protein Collagen. This present in all mammals. It forms the connective tissue in all the species. Because of its unique physico chemical properties it is present in all mammalian species. In nature, we only have 20 amino acids. There are structural an functional proteins. For a given function, there must be a particular structure of the protein. These structural and functional proteins are present in many mammalian systems. This does not mean that we evolved from the lower species. Because of the enormous complexity, they had to come into existence t once. Genesis 1:22 is very clear about this. Francis Collins is dead wrong. He has put the carriage before the horse. He has assumed that Evolution is reality and he is trying to find evidence to fit his assumptions. Why would God use evolution at all? If so, where is His omnipotence? What is Evolution? It is an unproven theory to explain the origin of species without the intervention of a supernatural power based on naturalism and random choice. How could Francis Collins believe in the creation of life by God and also believe in God’s intervention in creating various species? Collins cannot go both ways. According to his best friend Ravi Zacharias, the law of Noncontradiction does not allow Collins to believe both in God and Darwin. It has to be either God or Darwin and not both.

    „How could Francis Collins believe in the creation of life by God and also believe in God’s intervention in creating various species? Collins cannot go both ways.”

    Apologies to the error. This sentence in the previous blog must read as”How could Francis Collins believe in the creation of life by God and also NOT believe in God’s intervention in creating various species? Collins cannot go both ways.

    According to his best friend Ravi Zacharias, the law of Noncontradiction does not allow Collins to believe both in God and Darwin. It has to be either God or Darwin and not both. Based on this as well as Francis Collins duplicity, this website must be closed.Why? I am challenging Zacharias and Collins about their own contradictions. Biologos foundation will not allow mke to post any critisism on their website. I had always been blocked.

    Collins has sold his soul for 30 pieces of Silver.
    What would have haaappened to Collins if only he had supported the Biblical account of creation of various species (Gen 1:22)? The Govenment would have cut off all his research grants and he would be sitting in a box along with Dr.Peter Duesberg wo had cchallenged the AIDS virus discoverer Fauci at the National Institutes. Becauuse Collins had betrayed his faith in the God of Creation, he was rewarded with the most prestigious position ,Director of National Institutes of Health. This is how our Tax dollars are spent.

      I think you should seriously consider creating a blog to address this issue. It is kind of surprising to me that you are blocked from the Biologos website. You are making a very valid argument, especially in using the law of non contradiction argument. Blogging is a time consuming endeavor, but I think that your arguments are very courageous and important to the whole Creation/Evolution dialogue because of your personal background. May God use you to help open some eyes!
