Are You Evolving?

Human-Evolution

 

Old philosophy books and scholars wrote a jumble of million dollar words that however profound are ignorant. Seriously, evolution? We evolved from a single celled blob? How foolish is that? It’s scientifically impossible. If we evolved, why are we not still evolving? Like ants in their colony, they have groups of larva, being tended to by nurse ants. They evolve into the ant body and start working. Where are the lesser-evolved group that should be becoming human? That may justify sadistic folks into believing abortion is necessary. It gives folks justification to think less of some human beings and more of themselves. All this foolishness is the world’s thinking. I Corinthians 1:20 states, “Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? True wisdom comes from God (Proverbs 2:6). Not every Christian accepts or desires the wisdom from God. It is a gift and freely given when asked and sought after. Wisdom comes from being with God in prayer and in Word. So if you think that Christianity and the belief in God is a crazy notion, then you are foolish, but can’t help it. You can evolve from your foolishness into wisdom by asking and believing that Jesus died for your sins and loves you (James 1:5).

Be on the lookout for the foolish, know that you cannot argue with them; remember to pray for them because they don’t have the wisdom of God. Consider telling them about Jesus.

  1. Well I was asked to come comment on this blog post and I have a few comments.

    First you must understand that your first question is confused, individuals do not evolve, populations evolve. To ask if a single person is evolving is much like asking if a single frame in a film makes a movie.

    To understand evolution one must understand it’s root meaning and how that has changed over the last several centuries. Words change as do our understandings And “evolution” started out simply meaning “change.” Though when the word was used to explain the changes of organisms over generations it took on more interesting meanings.
    A partial definition in evolutionary theory would be:
    Evolution: the process by which forms of life having traits that better enable them to adapt to specific environmental pressures, as predators, changes in climate, or competition for food or mates, will tend to survive and reproduce in greater numbers than others of their kind, thus ensuring the perpetuation of those favorable traits in succeeding generations.

    This is by no means a full definition of evolutionary theory (another loaded word, but In this instance I’m using “theory” as in “scientific theory” which is different from the general use of the word), but if you respond to this comment and wish to know more we can walk that path when we get there.

    So when you talk about “million dollar words” and other anti-intellectual ideas, your not being smart, you are not being wise you are being dismissive of things you do not yet understand. This isn’t to say all large words are useful, and some are abused, but that is like anything else. If you simply dismiss it because the answers are not readily apparent to you. All you end up doing is cheating yourself from a broader understanding

    Now you talk about evolution being scientifically impossible, that statement alone makes very little sense. How can something that has beyond any reasonable doubt, and is back by a careful scientific consensus which is so staggering (it’s over 98%) that to show evolution is not true you would have to up root the whole of the biological sciences. How can something proven so definitively by science be scientifically impossible. Has is ever occurred to you that perhaps why the things you say make no logical sense is because your not actually addressing evolutionary thought, but something else all together? Or do you think that scientists like myself are so stupid to believe something which makes not a lick of sense?

    Now do not misunderstand me when I tell you you don’t know what your talking about, I’m not saying your stupid, I am merely saying that if you understood the principles you’re talking about you would not be making such erroneous statements like: “If we evolved, why are we not still evolving? Like ants in their colony, they have groups of larva, being tended to by nurse ants. They evolve into the ant body and start working.”

    Those ants those individuals are not evolving, they are growing from their younger larval state to their adult form. This process is called a metamorphosis, and many insects do this as a perfectly normal part of their development. Our children go through puberty, insect offspring often (not all insects have larval forms) have two main stages of development, a larval stage and a adult stage. This is not evolution this is development through life, and while it is very different from our own it is not evolution.

    Another question I have for you is this. You speak of how you can not argue with the foolish, but how do you know another to be a fool when you do not even know their argument, you do not even know their claim. You might thing you do, but if you got those arguments above from someone claiming to know about biology or evolutionary theory I can say quite definitively that they don’t have the first clue what they are talking about.

    Now if you would like learn about biology, and about the Scientific Theory of Evolution by natural selection, so that you can decide for yourself I will gladly give you some resources for deeper study, because truly nothing you said above reflects the science or a proper understanding of the work that has been, and continues to be done.

    • I appreciate your comments. When it comes down to it, evolution is believing in a person’s theory, their opinion based on historical findings. The Bible is also a book that is based on records of historical facts. The Bible is the only truth. It can and has been proven historically and physically. I would rather believe in the Creator of the Universe than a theory of a man and how he thinks this world began. If you are right about evolution, then that’s great, then there’s no life after death. But if you are wrong, and the Bible being true, then life after death is spent in either Heaven or Hell. I wouldn’t take the risk.

      • Well I’m sorry to hear you speak with way.
        Evolution is not just “a person’s theory” it’s is a scientific theory, a system of laws and evidence which has been compile over the last ~300 years by many thousands of people, most of those being trained scientific who check each others, and past work correcting mistakes along the way. Further, more evidence is found all the time.

        You claim the bible is the only truth, but what do you mean by proven? How do you know this to be true? You also say you’d rather believe in your particular creator god as opposed to the reality which we, humanity, are trying to understand. I’d like to beilive that everything is good and wonderful, and the everyone gets a happy ending, but I have no evidence to beilive in an afterlife, and I know the world is filled with many ills along with the good. That’s why rather then hoping for some after life which will probably never come. I will do my best you enjoy the only life I have, learn and try my best to make the lives of others better.

        At the end you fall onto Pascals wager, but are you not taking the same gambit? How do you know you have the right god? Perhaps there is a god which has filled the world with false deities and wishes for us to reject them all before we get our eternal reward/punishment.
        You say your holy text is proven by historical and physical “proof” yet you reject “historical” evidence, and presumably the mountains of physical evidence, for evolution? This is an obvious case of special pleading where in you have granted special privileges to your holy text, but not to science, but worse yet I bet you don’t grant that special case to other holy texts.

        Further belief is not as simple as choosing from a shelf. While there is a notion in many Christian circles of “fake it till you make it.” For many of us that just isn’t an option. I don’t beilive in your myths and I’m not going to be able to start to. So even if I where to professed a belief in your deity that would not be a true belief, so would that god still accept me? Do you truly think that he is go gullible or native to think me honest?
