The “Abominable Mystery”

I’m not going to take the time to write much on this, but an article on the BBC about Charles Darwin is very revealing. See New light shed on Charles Darwin’s ‘abominable mystery’.

Two thoughts: First, Darwin’s defenders try to tell us that he was just following the science. If you tell them that the theories of evolution have been motivated and driven by opposition to God and an unwillingness to accept Him, they will say, “No, it’s just the science.” Yet, here we see Darwin referring to this evolutionary problem as an “abominable mystery” because an opposing scientist (not a preacher, a scientist) pointed out that God was the solution. That was anathema to Darwin, as the article acknowledges. So was Darwin just an unbiased observer following the science or is that just propaganda?

Second, evolutionists still don’t have a solution to their problem. There is no hypothesis within their framework that makes sense to solve it. As the article notes, Darwin speculated that perhaps the solution is an undiscovered continent or island. That, to me, sounds remarkably like faith rather than science. If your scientific theory doesn’t fit the known facts, and you therefore invent possible “facts” which can never be scientifically tested, you’ve just moved into the realm of faith. There is much in modern evolutionary “theory” that looks more like faith than science, but rarely do scientists and the modern press actually admit it.

This kind of article sometimes disappears, if anyone wants it I suggest you print it while available!
