LACE appreciates all those who read and leave comments here, but is thankful to two in particular for their regular contributions: Nick and SkepticalProphet. These two recently touched on an important issue that LACE would like to address: the nature of evidence.
What is evidence, generally speaking? From Dictionary.com, a three-part definition:
"1. that which tends to prove or disprove something; ground for belief; proof. 2. something that makes plain or clear; an indication or sign: His flushed look was visible evidence of his fever. 3. Law. data presented to a court or jury in proof of the facts in issue and which may include the testimony of witnesses, records, documents, or objects."
In other words, everything around us is evidence of something, offering clues to one thing or another -- specific evidence depending, of course, on the question or situation at hand. For us, the present question concerns origins; specifically, in what manner did we get here -- by special creation or evolution?
Some, such as Nick, demand that creationists, in order to prove their case, produce the equivalent of God's fingerprints or DNA. As SkepticalProphet has correctly pointed out, however, such proof doesn't exist. Then again, contends LACE, such "smoking gun" evidence also is lacking for evolution; if it existed, it would be broadcast far and wide, loud and clear, in nearly every media outlet in the world.
The next-best course of action, then, is to sift through the physical evidence and see what it most strongly indicates. What LACE hopes that Nick and others like him will come to understand is that the preponderance of physical data points to a global flood and a young Earth, among other things, thereby lending support to the Genesis account and thus to the creationist contention that God made us. LACE realizes that this isn't the "caught red-handed" sort of evidence that certain people are asking/hoping for, but submits that it would nonetheless constitute sufficient physical (and logical) proof that we are God's special creation and not the product of random, meaningless happenstance. Though God still requires us to have faith, He also gave us the gifts of intellect, reason and logic and expects us to use them; we should therefore put them to good use to show that our faith in Him -- far from being ludicrous and delusional -- makes perfect sense.
Here's a brief example to think about: polystrate fossils -- in particular, tree trunk fossils. As stated by Tas Walker at Creation.com: "It is not possible that polystrate fossils were buried gradually over many thousands or hundreds of thousands of years because the top part of any tree would have rotted away before it could be protected by sediment. Polystrate fossils point to rapid burial and are evidence for the reality of the global Flood recorded in the Bible." Even Derek Ager, an emeritus professor of biology at University College of Swansea and an anti-creationist, gave (perhaps unknowing) support to this argument (see above link).
