Transcript of Biology

- Supernatural creator who created all organisms in a way that resembles their present forms

Six days

Theistic Evolution

- mutations and adaptions cause small changes within a species (ie. breeds of dogs)

Secular Humanism
Classical Darwinism
- Survival of the fittest, natural selection

Neo- Darwinism
- small mutations that alter genetics over time

Six Planks- struggle for existence, natural selection, spontaneous generation, adaptions, fossil record, and beneficial mutations


Science is all there is

Six or Eight days

More than just science exists

Islamic Scholars have made large contributions
Why are their still Atheists then?
The problem has to do with will not with mind

People don't want the limitations or moral standards
What about homology?
common creator instead of common ancestor

Apes and Humans do have similar DNA

Apes and Humans do have similar structures
Anthropic Principles
Every message is a product of intelligence
Through the Lenses of Worldviews

Common Objections
Teleological Argument
Cosmic Humanism
The universe had a beginning- SURGE
Flaws of Evolution
Spontaneous Generation
S- Second Law of thermodynamics
U- The Universe is Expanding
R- Radiation from the Big Bang
G- Great Galaxy Seeds
E- Einstein's theory of General Relativity
The Beginning had a Cause
Romans 1:20
" This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being."
- Isaac Newton
Gene Limitations
Irreducible complexity
Fossil Record
1,000 encyclopedias being created by a printer explosion
"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."
"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organism existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would completely break down."

- Charles Darwin
Marxism- Leninism

Punctuated Equilibrium
- period of stasis followed by a period of rapid evolutionary change

Evolution based on dialectics (two opposing forces clash to create a new species)

Cosmic Evolution
-Humanity is evolving to a higher consciousness or godhood

Planetary Harmony has been negatively affected by science

Evolutionary goal is oneness with the universe

Gaia Hypothesis
- the earth is alive and formed by living organisms
Favor Neo-Darwinism

Society rather than science formulates truth

Culture is said to be responsible for the evolution of many traits(Isolation of races)

Principle of Uniformity
- life works today as it did long ago

Materials can't be meshed together to form life, shows that something beyond materials exist

We just need more time
If you throw red, white, and blue confetti out the door it will not orderly create the image of an American flag, if you throw it out of an airplane and give it even more time, it will just be more disordered
Cosmological Argument
Give it a chance!

Statistically, the chance that these necessary conditions would exist on another planet today without divine design is one in 10 raised to 138

Probability of getting one protein molecule from mere chance is as likely as a blindfolded man finding a marked grain of sand in the Sahara Desert three times in a row.

To get life you need about 200 protein molecules
1. Oxygen Level

2. Atmospheric Transparency

3. Gravitational interaction
between moon and earth

4. Carbon Dioxide Level

5. Gravity
Geisler, N., & Turek, F. (2004). I don't have enough faith to be an atheist. Wheaton, Ill.: Crossway Books.
If you saw "Will you marry me?" spelled out in Cheerios you would think it came from someone with a mind, it did not just occur from random spilled cereal.
Cambrian Explosion

Few transition fossils

In some organisms a single part cannot be removed without function being lost
Mutations CANNOT create unlimited variation within species

"Species barriers" prevent macroevolution

cyclical change

Law of Causality

The First cause must be
Self-existent, timeless, immaterial
