Evolution Is Crackers!

Reclining at the table last night I decided to put my four year old on the spot! Taking 5 seaweed rice crackers (each about the size of a small marble) I began a game called "Put" or "Drop".

Without explaining the purpose or rules, and with eyes shut tight each turn, I proceeded to "Put" (lay out the crackers in a loose pattern)* or "Drop" (let the chips fall as they may - so to speak) in a random sequence.

With a bemused look on her face (and probably thinking her dad was a bit crackers) she patiently complied with each request to decide "Put" or "Drop".

To my amazement, not only did she understand conceptually the differences between "Put" and "Drop", but by looking at the effect she was clearly able to distinguish the cause (as evidenced by her 100% success rate).

How is it then, that a four year old can look at a five crackers, ascertain a logical order (or pattern) and correctly conclude "Put", and a planet full of scientists surrounded by an infinite number of examples (from microbiological machines of irreducible complexity to huge sprawling galaxies), foolishly conclude "Drop"? It's Crackers! It doesn't make sense!

How can so many “learned” men and women get it so horribly wrong? We only have to turn to the scripture to find out, for in Romans 1:18-22 we read:

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of human beings who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools!

May God give us eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying!

The God of Truth must teach us the Truth of God or we shall never learn it! - Charles Spurgeon

Evolutionists must have more faith than I have.
Even Darwin admitted that "when I consider the human eye ..."
And it was, and is, only a theory.

When something does change dramatically, it does so in a few weeks, [I refer to the "butterfly - - grub - crysolis" cycle] not millions of years.
