There is no such thing as Evolution! It is an ‘observable’ theory!
“Observable” because it is inferred and implied by what we see…i.e ‘observe’
But examination and investigations have found that the data actually goes AGAINST the theory. Eg. Molecular research show that our DNA is similar to the banana, chimp and closest to the mouse. The theory then must be that we either share the parentage, or we are the upper forms of one of these!??! Every other tennet of the theory has similar problems.
Evolution is good as a theory, as far as theories go. But it is not FACT! The overwhelming ‘evidence’ the science world keep harping on about is actually non-existent and doesn’t hold up to scientific scrutiny. But it pays the bills.
The Catholic position is that all human reason is a Divine “gift” and therefore, theories are legitimate. But the conclusions and findings must be truth, for all truths belong to the ONE Who Is Truth Personified.
No early father departed from the Biblical version, accept Origen, who suggested that perhaps ‘one day’ may be several years or millenias. But even he stated that if his reasoning may be faulty he concedes to proof of Truth!
If the Biblical account is correct, then there cannot be an evolution progression because the Sun is required for everything to grow and it cannot come along four millenias later!..since it was made on the fourth day!
I believe in Jesus Christ. God from God. When He qouted Scriptures, the question is settled. Although there is much within Scriptures that we have yet to fully comprehend, through Him I must accept it as being CORRECT.
It is a question of faith, and it matters not what the other religions believed or understood. That is one of the reasons He came, so that we can chose the correct one.
