Letter to the Editor: Darwin contradicts life work
"I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatsoever." Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
The greatest minds in history endorsed a Creator, including Galileo, Martin Luther, Einstein, Robert Bork, Billy Graham, Erasmus, William Tyndale, Immanuel Kant, and the above cited Isaac Newton.
I recently met with some creation scientists and they told me that in the near future, evolution will be exposed as the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on mankind. They also informed me that more scientists are accepting a Creator as the basis for everything that exists. In fact, according to Gallup polls taken between 1982-1999, nearly half of all Americans polled consistently believe in a Creator, and that Charles Darwin was wrong. Only 12 percent support Darwin's theory, and approximately 38 percent believe in a combination of a Creator, with evolution playing a minor role. Therefore, it is truly amazing to me that every major college and university teaches evolution as fact, and scoff at the idea of a Holy God. This is troubling because it is a fact that some of the greatest scientific minds believed in a Creator.
Why have Biblical facts, and discoveries substantiating the true meaning of the Bible been hidden? And, why is the mere mention of God, creation, and Christianity, controversial in public schools, but theories like evolution, and other spiritual practices are part of the curriculum? The answer is frightening: there is a lethal enemy of God who is busy attacking the minds of people to distort the truth. The God of the Bible is very clear: anyone seeking the truth will be led to find it in Jesus Christ. As a former atheist who accepted the Lord nearly 10 years ago, I can honestly say that pure truth is Jesus Christ.
In conclusion, it is interesting if not ironic to report that Charles Darwin, an admitted agnostic who reportedly lost his Christian faith in the course of his life work, is buried in Westminster Abbey, considered one of the holiest places on Earth. He is buried a few feet from Isaac Newton, along with several other great scientific minds in a section known as "Scientists Corner." In death, Darwin unknowingly contradicts his life work.
