Questions that evolution cannot answer

See also

There are questions that evolution cannot answer. These questions mostly deal with God's ultimate creation : man.

How did physical life come from inorganic chemicals? Life is more than matter and energy (Genesis 2:7; Job 12:7-10). We know that if a creature is denied air it dies. Even though its body may be perfectly intact, and air and energy are reintroduced to spark life, the body remains dead. Scripture agrees with the observable evidence when it states that only God can give the breath of life. Life cannot be explained by raw materials, time, and chance alone, as evolutionists would like us to believe.

"All of us who study the origin of life find that the more we look into it, the more we feel it is too complex to have evolved anywhere. We all believe as an article of faith that life evolved from dead matter on this planet. It is just that its complexity is so great, it is hard for us to imagine that it did" (Harold C. Urey, quoted in Christian Science Monitor, January 4, 1962, p. 4).

Where did man's conscience come from? We know that animals do not have a conscience (Psalm 32:9). A parrot can be taught to swear and blaspheme, yet never feel conviction. If man evolved from animals, where did our conscience come from? The Bible explains that man alone was created as a moral being in God's image (Genesis 1:26-27). Human conscience understood (Romans 2:14-15). The Bible reveals that God has impressed His moral law unto every human heart. "Con" means "with" and "science" means "knowledge". We know it is wrong to murder, lie, steal, etc.. Only the Bible explains that each human has a God-given knowledge of right and wrong.

Where did love and other emotions come from? Evolution cannot explain love. Yet, God's Word reveals that the very purpose of our existence is to know and love God and our fellow man. God is love, and we were created in His image to reflect His love (Matthew 22:37-40),(I John 4:7-12). Evolution cannot explain emotions. Matter and energy do not feel. Scripture explains that God places gladness in our hearts (Psalm 4:7), and ultimate joy is found only in our Creator's presence : "in thy presence is the fullness of joy" (Psalm 16:11).

The Bible is inspired by the Creator. Therefore, it is no surprise that life's ultimate questions are answered within its pages. The Bible reveals the purpose of our existence. The Bible offers the only remedy for sin, suffering and death. God's Word presents the only perfect sinless Saviour, the One who died from our sins and rose from the dead (I Corinthians 15:1-4). Jesus is the Creator (John 1:1-4),(Colossians 1:16-17). Your eternal destiny will be determined by your choice. There is only one provision for sin. Jesus died in your place. Only by faith in Christ's finished work at Calvary, will you be saved. This is God's free gift offered to all. Please heed Jesus' words. "Repent ye and believe the gospel (Mark 1:15). If you do, you will live in Heaven with our awesome Creator forever! Amen!
