Like most people born in the last 50 years or more, I was taught by the public education system, the newspapers, television, movies and elsewhere that the theory of evolution is a long-verified, proven, incontrovertible scientific framework fully backed by the facts.
It wasn’t until about 13 years ago that I was exposed to the truth about evolution. Much to my surprise and dismay, I learned that evolution has not been proven, is not resolutely backed by the facts, and is not even a logically viable theory according to the framework of its own assumptions.
Incidentally, it was at that same time that I learned the Genesis account of creation is logically consistent within the framework of its own assumptions, and that many scientists (with the same degrees as evolution-believing scientists) have developed scientifically viable theories that fit within the scientific parameters outlined in Genesis. Another thing I learned was that the Genesis account of creation matches the observable evidence much more closely than the theory of evolution ever has.
When I learned these things, I had a hard choice to make. I could pretend I hadn’t learned what I had learned, that the evidence didn’t really lead to the conclusions it obviously led to, that what I had always believed had to still be right…or I could admit that I had been wrong (ugh!), that I had believed a lie based on thin evidence, and readjust my scientific paradigm.
I chose the latter, as scary as it was, and since then I have begun to understand the universe in ways I never dreamed possible–with input from both the secular and Biblical perspectives.
However, having discussed the creation/evolution issue countless times over the past 13 years, I can safely but sadly say that there are many people who are unable to make that second choice. In fact, some people are so invested in believing what they have comfortably believed for many years that they are unable to see the contradictions and failings of evolution theory, even when it is laid out for them on a silver platter. Some even appear completely incapable of grasping the difference between a fact and an assumption.
But that doesn’t have to describe you. You can choose to look objectively at the framework of assumptions behind creation and evolution, objectively compare the scientific facts of our world to those assumptions, see which fit best, and make the logical conclusion.
This video examines some of the questions that evolutionists desperately want you to think they know the answers to…but remain unanswered. They are not only unanswered; the absence of scientific answers for them illustrates the untenability of the entire theory of evolution/naturalism/materialism. Watch them. Think about them. Then be brave and follow the evidence where it leads.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
