Evolution – The Fake Truth

This essay was written in Oct 2013 by a 9th grade student named A. K.

Everything We Know Is a Lie

There is no proof for evolution! It has to be believed, therefore it’s a faith, and therefore it’s a religion! So they’re teaching a new compulsory religion in today’s hallowed halls of higher learning. Even the great high priest and founding father of this new false faith, Charles Darwin himself, confessed, “the belief (note the emphasis on belief) in natural selection (evolution) must at present be grounded entirely on general considerations. When we descend to details, we can prove that no one species has changed, nor can we prove that the supposed changes are beneficial, which is the groundwork of the theory.”

At the core of evolutionary theory is the big assumption that life somehow arose from non-life, that by pure chance the right chemicals happened to be in the right place, in the right arrangement, at the right time, under the right conditions, and by some mysterious, unknown electrochemical process POOF life created itself! This assumption is completely contrary to a universally accepted and proven law of science, known as the second law of thermodynamics, which states, “All processes (left to themselves) go toward a greater state of disorder, disorganisation, disarrangement and less complexity.”

In other words, inanimate matter never increases its own order, organisation or complexity, these always decrease! And even if the elements could arrange themselves into a certain definite pattern, as is necessary for life, they could not make themselves a living cell because LIFE is not a mere physical arrangement of chemicals! The likelihood of this happening is so far-fetches that Princeton University Professor of Biology Edwin Conklin has said: “The probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing shop.”

As for the so-called “simple cell”, from which the evolutionists say all living creatures have evolved, Look Magazine declared, “THE CELL IS AS COMPLICATED AS NEW YOUR CITY.” One well-known scientist likewise admitted in his book, The Immense Journey, that “Intensified effort revealed that even the supposedly simple amoeba was a complex, self-operating chemical factory. The notion that he was a simple blob, the discovery of whose chemical composition would enable us instantly to set the life process in operation, turned out to be, at best, a monstrous caricature of the truth.”

Can you imagine a dictionary, a chemical factory, or New York City, coming into existence by itself POOF without any assistance from an intelligent designer, planner or creator? Such is the logic of evolution’s imaginary assumption that the infinitely complex “simple” cell accidentally came together and came alive by blind, unguided chance! Commenting on this assumption, the British biologist Woodger said, “It is simple dogmatism asserting that what you want to believe did in fact happen.” The absurdity of this evolutionary logic is only amplified as we move on to the even more complex, multi-celled forms of life.

What would the wisdom of the world say to such a simple example of profound Orthodox creationist apologetic theology? It would say what they said about Blessed Seraphim Rose in response to one of our articles posted on freerepublic.com. All the comments to the article are actually very telling on how little the world understands of a divine faith. Here is what one of them says:

“He is a creationist heretic!!! How dare he not adopt nineteenth century science and “scholarship” like all the ancient “unchanging” churches do!”

We wonder if the commentator realised that he contradicted himself in the same sentence when he refers to “unchanging” churches that embraced something new in the nineteenth century (obviously referring to the science of evolution). Do not be troubled when the world treat you like this, for it is written:

John 15:18-19 “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
