Transitional Fossils Exist Even for Cockroaches

This of course is just another example of the liberal, secular, godless scientific establishment devising ways to undermine faith in God.

    Thought you might enjoy the following comment by Todd Wood, avowed creationist. who says there is plenty of evidence supporting evolution, he just chooses to believe the Bible supercedes it. At least he says evolution is not a lie.

    The truth about evolution
    I hope this doesn’t turn into a rant, but it might. You have been warned.

    Evolution is not a theory in crisis. It is not teetering on the verge of collapse. It has not failed as a scientific explanation. There is evidence for evolution, gobs and gobs of it. It is not just speculation or a faith choice or an assumption or a religion. It is a productive framework for lots of biological research, and it has amazing explanatory power. There is no conspiracy to hide the truth about the failure of evolution. There has really been no failure of evolution as a scientific theory. It works, and it works well.

    I say these things not because I’m crazy or because I’ve “converted” to evolution. I say these things because they are true. I’m motivated this morning by reading yet another clueless, well-meaning person pompously declaring that evolution is a failure. People who say that are either unacquainted with the inner workings of science or unacquainted with the evidence for evolution. (Technically, they could also be deluded or lying, but that seems rather uncharitable to say. Oops.)

    Creationist students, listen to me very carefully: There is evidence for evolution, and evolution is an extremely successful scientific theory. That doesn’t make it ultimately true, and it doesn’t mean that there could not possibly be viable alternatives. It is my own faith choice to reject evolution, because I believe the Bible reveals true information about the history of the earth that is fundamentally incompatible with evolution. I am motivated to understand God’s creation from what I believe to be a biblical, creationist perspective. Evolution itself is not flawed or without evidence. Please don’t be duped into thinking that somehow evolution itself is a failure. Please don’t idolize your own ability to reason. Faith is enough. If God said it, that should settle it. Maybe that’s not enough for your scoffing professor or your non-Christian friends, but it should be enough for you.

    I think that’s all I want to say today. Rant over.

    Todd Wood is director of the Center for Origins Research and an association professor of “science” at Bryan College, Dayton, Tenn., home of the Scopes Trial, and president of BSG, a creation biology study group. Bryan College has the logo “Christ Above All,” which pretty much explains his illogic.

    Another of Todd Wood’s blog comments:
    I’M A CREATIONIST! reaffirms my doctrinal commitments so I can’t be written off as an evolutionist in disguise or some other nonsense like that.

  2. That is where I found myself not too long ago. It is humorous and sad. It takes a lot of effor to consistently deny what you know to be true.
