Darwin: A Creationist Perspective

January 3, 2009

Here is an article from Answers in Genesis about the Year of Darwin, written by the Answers magazine editor-in-chief.

Throughout 2009 the world will be celebrating Darwin’s birthday (February 12, 1809) and the publication of On the Origin of Species (November 24, 1859). Meanwhile, Bible-believing Christians have had 150 years to reflect on Darwin’s life and work. What have we learned?

First, it’s important to get our facts straight. Darwin was not a demon or an angel, but a human being like the rest of us, struggling with difficult personal and intellectual questions.

Second, Darwin made some valuable scientific observations and raised some good questions. Scientists are still trying to answer many of those questions today.

The January issue of Answers magazine asked leading minds in creation science to share their perspectives on both Darwin and his book, and to report on the latest efforts by creationists to provide an alternative explanation for the origin of species.

The result could be titled a “Creationist Manifesto for the Twenty-first Century,” a statement of the latest creationist thinking on the origin of species, as well as a revolutionary call for Bible-based science that can change our understanding of the world. We believe these insights should be freely available to teachers, pastors, and students on every continent, as they wrestle with the significance of Darwin’s life and works.

During the “Year of Darwin” and “Darwin Day” celebrations on February 12, our hope is that many souls will dig a little deeper and discover the true Source of Life, whose Book holds the key that unlocks the mysteries of life.

      Its going well!

      I am glad you found me as well. My website used to be at soluscristus.com, but I just now found out that my free host has not existed for the last month or so and did not tell me (what nice folks…).

      I have several posts that I made on the other website and will hopefully be able to upload them to this one (which has not been accessible for the last 9-10 mo. or so).
