No monkey business

It's the 200th year of the Darwin Birth and the 150th year of the Theory of the Origin of Species. Militant atheist Richard Dawkins is going to be very happy this year. For others, the myriad of museum celebrations will challenge the visitor to view, think and ultimately decide: did man come from monkeys over the course of millions of years, or from God a few thousand years ago? On a scientific plane, this hoopla will challenge people to think whether the still-unproved theory of evolution is science and infallible, or whether the bible is science and infallible.

A “Darwinathon,” with 12 straight hours of lectures on the wisdom of Darwin, is planned this spring.

Atheists have their opinion:

In the Channel 4 series Dawkins on Darwin he argues that Darwinism provides a more thrilling view of creation than any religion. Discover magazine has called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" because of the adamant way he defends evolution. These days Dawkins turns his brainy behavior towards religion, looking at the pain and suffering that faith has caused. He criticizes the concept of God in all the ways that the deity is depicted, from the Old Testament figure to more enlightened ones. In his book The God Delusion he maintains that belief in God is irrational and likely deadly as well.

Christians have their opinion:

“As a Christian worker and professional educator for the past 40 years, I have been keenly aware that every aspect of life in America has been negatively influenced by the subtle and godless philosophy of evolutionism for some time” said Dr. G. Thomas who founded the Sharp Creation Truth Foundation in Noble, Okla. in 1989 and is co-founder and president of the Museum of Earth History in Eureka Springs, Ark. As the world marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species and the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth on Feb. 12, CMI hopes to illustrate how the evolutionary viewpoint is far from the tried and tested science fact that many believe it to be, according to the ministry website.

The bible has the truth:

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things..." 2 Timothy 4:2-5

"Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called 'Today,' lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 'For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end...." Hebrews 4:12-14
