For a man who does not believe in a miracle, a slow miracle would be just as incredible as a swift one."*G. Chesterton (1925)."The theory of evolution gives no answer to the important problem of the origin of life and presents only fallacious solutions to the problem of the nature of evolutive transformations . We are condemned to believe in evolution, but we will always search for a suggestion concerning the methods of transformations . Perhaps we are now in a worse position than in 1859 because we have searched for one century and we have the impression that the various hypotheses [of how evolution could have occurred] are now exhausted.
Presently, nature appears to be more steady, more firm and more refractory [resistant] to changes than we thoughtbefore we had made a clear distinction between hereditary variability [within species] and acquired characteristics [DNA characteristics fixing each species]. Salet, Hasard et Certitude: Le Transformisme devant la Biologie Actuelle (1973), p. Several methods for dating ancient materials have been developed.
It could not produce life out of nothing."It is no secret that evolutionists worship at the shrine of time.
There is little difference between the evolutionist saying 'time did it' and the creationist saying ' God did it.' Time and chance is a two-headed deity. Just piled sand or sloshing seawater, and that is all there would be to it.
In fact, not even the dating methods confirm the dating methods! With but very rare exception, they always disagree with one another!
There are a number of very definite problems in those dating methods.
(More evidence on this will be found in chapters 6 and 18, Age of the Earth, and Ancient Man.)If human beings have been on this planet for over a million years, as theorized by evolutionists, then we should have a large amount of structures and written records extending back at least 500,000 years.
Apart from recorded history, which goes back no farther than about 2200-3000 B.
C., we have no way of verifying the supposed accuracy of theoretical dating methods.
He explains that if the event is attempted often enough, the total probability of obtaining it would keep reducing!
If it is tried a thousand times and does not even occur once, and then is tried thousands of more times and never occurs, then the chances of it occurring keeps reducing.
This is species evolution, and will be discussed in the chapters on Fossils (chapter 17), Ancient Man (chapter 18), Natural Selection (chapter 13), Mutations (chapter 14), and Species Evolution (chapter 15).
