The evolution arrogance

The Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. are definitely worth a visit. Huge, impressive, informative and free (!) museums where you can learn a ton of things about a lot of different subjects. One of the most popular museums is the Museum of National History where you’ll find a number of different (dead) animals from all over the world and lots of info about all these different interesting, beautiful or just plain crazy looking creatures.

To me this particular museum could be the most exciting and uplifting of the museums, but instead the place filled me with sadness when I visited this past Saturday. This is the high places of arrogance when it comes to the questions of how this world came about, and especially the question of where human beings came from. If you visit the Museum of National History and read all the information that’s found everywhere you’ll be convinced that we simply KNOW everything (!) there is to know. Posters will proudly proclaim that apparently we know for sure (!!) what happened 3.5 million years ago….Apparently we also know what animals evolved into what and everything else we ever wanted to know…..

There are no question marks to be found anywhere. No acknowledging that all serious scientists, even those who claim that the idea of creation by God is absolutely absurd, will agree that they don’t know everything about how the earth came to be and how human beings are the way we are. No words such as ‘approximately’, ‘most likely’, ‘probably’, ‘a qualified guess is’, ‘the common belief is’ or anything even suggesting the reality that is that if you completely leave God out of the picture when the talk comes to the earth, animals and human beings you’ll find yourself with many, many questions that no one has any answers to. Also there was nothing acknowledging that the vast majority of people in the world don’t believe that the world came about through random coincidence. So the message to the majority of the almost 7 billion people in the world is clear: you’re simply just dumb, narrow-minded and uneducated!!

It was sad to see the arrogance. And sad to see that it has come to this that we are supposed to celebrate ourselves as well-developed animals as opposed to human beings created in the very image of the Almighty and Loving God of the Universe.

No wonder it’s easier for most people in the western world to care more about animal wellfare, saving the trees, recycling (which are all good things!) than protecting the unborn, fighting for rights for handicapped people and other things that have to be at the top of your list of priorities of what to protect and fight for if you believe in God.

I wish more scientists had the courage to admit what’s obvious to any thinking person that believing in evolution is just as much faith as believing in God creating the world and human beings. I had one Professor at the University I attended years ago who admitted, off the record of course, that he had faith in evolution and human beings coming from monkeys just the same way I had faith in God creating the earth and human beings.

I thank God that he has created everything through his son Jesus Christ! I thank God that he causes everything to live, move and breathe and that his sun rises on people who love him and hate him!

Blessings, Torben
