In the first place, to give the prize to Alistair Hardy is absolutely wrong because in the last fifty years the theory has been losing ground every day. There are more and more anti-Darwinians – more than Darwinians – because facts and realities don’t support Darwin. Secondly, he does not understand at all that creation means once and for all. That’s what Christians believe: in six days God completed the creation.
Darwin is trying to say He did not complete it. There were possibilities of evolution open that God only began but He never ended. He left it open-ended. But this is nowhere mentioned – not in the Christian Bible nor in any other holy book of the world. Wherever God is believed to be the creator, He creates completely, entirely. And He is the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent: whatever is the best He knows and He has done it.
Evolution means that you can improve upon God – that His creation is just a primitive thing, and you have evolved out of it.
I call these people idiots for a specific reason – because they can’t see simple contradictions.
Creation and evolution cannot go together.
However hard Mr. Hardy tries he cannot succeed in putting them together. They are simply antagonistic to each other.
Evolution means nothing is complete, nothing will ever be complete; everything is in a process. Existence is an ongoing phenomenon. It is not that on Monday God started, and on Saturday evening He looked at what He had created and said, “Good” – just the way I say it; even where it is not needed I say it. And at least at that time, when God said it, it was not needed because there was nobody to hear it.
Monkeys cannot understand it, elephants cannot understand it, tigers cannot understand it. And man was yet to come, if Charles Darwin is correct. In fact, even if man was there…. All religions believe that God created man, man is not an evolved animal; God created him – not only did He create him, He created him in His own image.
Now, do you think the monkey is the image of God? That He created the monkey in His own image?
Charles Darwin was also a very orthodox Christian. But he never thought about it, whether God created the monkey and then said, “I create you in my own image,” and thanked Himself and said, “Good”; was rejoiced seeing the monkey: “I have succeeded in creating myself.” Neither Charles Darwin bothered about that, nor does his follower Alistair Hardy bother at all. They continue to remain Christians and they continue to believe in the theory of evolution. You cannot be a Christian and a believer in the theory of evolution.
Whatever God created must have been something totally different. In all these millions of years everything must have changed, if evolution is true. But they don’t see the simple contradiction.
Evolution denies God.
Let me make it absolutely clear:
Evolution denies God because evolution denies creation.
