Personal Evolution

For the last few weeks I've had the time to catch up on my favorite blogs, Evolution News and Views and Darwin's God. I've learned about new discoveries concerning what used to be called "Junk DNA." The evolutionists told us these inter-gene regions were worthless leftovers from evolution. But now scientists are finding that these "pseudo-genes" do a lot of regulation of genes and other cell metabolism. Doctors believe they might be very important in future medical treatments for things like cancer suppression.

But those who are intent on proving total materialistic evolution (totally by chance) keep on coming up with arguments you wouldn't believe if you didn't see them. I won't go into all of them now. Follow the links to the blogs above if you are interested in details. I myself feel I am ready to move on in many ways from the evolution arguments.

Still, I pray for the people who devote their talents and dedication to the truth. I also pray for those who have been in the neo-Darwinian mindset for many years. It's easy to see why they would be--they are taught it in school and many scientists say it is true. But I believed neo-Darwian evolution myself until I started really thinking about it. I read a book by I. L. Cohen called Darwin was Wrong. It affected me greatly, but it wasn't enough. I had to be honest in my own heart. I had to be willing to think a different way, and that is not easy. That is what I ask people who have their doubts in this evolution debate to do.

I don't know how much more I will write about this subject. I have put much time into pictures and explanations, but there are many other things to explore. I think God's creation is absolutely fabulous and I marvel over it. When scientists ask what they should do about miracles, my answer is a resounding, "Praise the Lord!"
