"Where wast thou when I laid the foundation of the earth?

declare, if thou hast understanding." (Job 38:4) KJV

"The lot is cast into the lap, but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord".

"By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." (Hebrew 11:3) KJV

"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead: so that they are without excuse." (Romans 1:20) KJV

Why has evolution become so widely accepted, and why has the Bible come to be viewed with such hostility? What has changed?

Only a few generations ago, laws prevented the teaching of the theory of evolution in quite a few regions in the United States. The Bible was commonly accepted as true and a reliable account of our origins. But now almost the opposite is true. The Bible is banned from classrooms in American schools, and serious discussion of the biblical view of the creation of our universe, and our human origins, is forbidden.

Many educated people accept the theory of evolution. But is it true? Funny, our existence as humans is one of the best arguments against it. According to evolutionary theory, the traits that offer the greatest advantage for survival are passed from generation to generation. Yet human reproduction itself argues powerfully against this fundamental premise of evolution.

If evolution is the guiding force in human development, how is it that higher forms of life evolved with male and female sexes? If humans are the pinnacle of the evolutionary process, how is it that we have the disadvantage of requiring a member of the opposite sex to reproduce, when lower forms of life, such as bacteria and viruses, are sexless and far more fertile? If they can reproduce by far simpler methods, why can't we? If evolution is true, what went wrong? If evolution is true, and humans are the pinnacle of the evolutionary process, why does a process as basic as human reproduction fly in the face of everything that evolution holds true?

Not all, including some scientists agree that no Creator exists and that we as human beings are the product of random chance. In 1972, NASA director Wernher von Braun, who has been called the father of the American space program, for his thoughts on the origin of the universe, life and the human race, said "For me, the idea of a creation is not conceivable without invoking the necessity of design. One cannot be exposed to the law and order of the universe without concluding that there must be design and purpose behind it all." He went on to say, "To be forced to believe only one conclusion--that everything in the universe happened by chance--would violate the very objectivity of science itself."

Certainly there are those who argue that the universe evolved out of a random process, but what random process could produce the brain of a man or the system of the human eye? Some people say that science has been unable to prove the existence of a Designer. They themselves admit that many of the miracles in the world around us are hard to understand, and they do not deny that the universe, as modern science sees it, is indeed a far more phenomenal thing than any man could perceive.

Even Charles Darwin, had second thoughts. In his later years he reflected on what he had started: (1) "I was a young man with unformed ideas. I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time over everything; and to my astonishment the ideas took like wildfire." Now, almost a century and a half after the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species, we can see where his thinking has led. In the United States, court decisions have interpreted constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion as freedom from religion--effectively banning public expression of religious beliefs.

Meanwhile, the world suffers from rejecting definite moral standards. With no definite standards, we have no reason to care what happens
