What takes more faith to believe in: Evolution or God?
Atheism confesses that God does not exist. With God not existing, an explanation must be given to explain where the universe came from and many theories have been created: The Big Bang, for example. The question needing to be answered is where did the material that collided with the other material come from? Charles Darwin claimed the eyeball has gone through a set of processes evolving from a lower form to a higher form. The problem with Darwin is he could not explain where the eye came from to begin with. It takes more faith to believe in evolution than to believe in God.
Why put more faith in a system where there are three major scientific conflicts?
3 Scientific Areas of Conflict Within Evolution
1. There is no unifying system that brings together all areas of science into a homogeneous component.
2. Within the evolutionist community, there are several disagreements over 3 different time periods.
3. There have been so many theoretical possibilities of origin for the world. Which one is right?
The first mistake of atheism is the insuperable leap from evolution to first causes. The theories of the evolution process come after the known origin of anything in the universe. Its like trying to figure out a proof in geometry without knowing what numbers to start with. It won’t make sense. Evolutionary science can’t answer the questions of ‘how’ or ‘why’ of there being something instead of nothing. In spite of this, there are those who take the blind leap. All that comes from the scientists is an explanation that â€œfails to explain.â€
Evolution flies in the face of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics of physics. This law essentially states that heat can’t transfer from a colder body to a hotter body without it not affecting the other body. With evolution, biology is being pitted against physics and they end up working against each other, in an utter contradiction. Put differently, the biological world is trying to evolve to a higher quality while the natural world is going down the spiral of disorder and degeneration. If the world tends towards chaos and disorder, according to the 2nd law, than evolution is impossible.
What is the chance that molecular amino acids just randomly form together perfectly to create a protein strand? But it doesn’t stop there. What is the chance that every single system we have in the field of science has been brought together by pure chance? It takes more faith to believe in this than to believe in a perfect, all-powerful, all-knowing God to create this world in which we live. What is ironic is many who believe in evolution do not believe in miracles…every organism and every process is a miracle. If evolution were true, it would be a miracle. But then, a miracle by definition comes from the Divine.
To conclude, a theoretical physicist named Dr. Polkinghorne gave a speech at Cambridge University saying, â€œThere is no free lunch. Somebody has to pay, and only God has the resources to put in what was needed to get what we’ve got.â€ There is no other suitable explanation. It would take more faith to believe in random chance than in God, but don’t take it from us, take it from the good doctor himself.

"Atheism is a strange thing. Even the devils never fell into that vice." Secularism has tried to snuff out the candle of religion, but it has failed.
