An Evolutionist's "Biggest Brake"

Updated: Feb 15


While the evolutionary worldview can supplant a biblical worldview in a person’s heart and mind, the Word of God reveals the deep, underlying motivation behind such a belief that denies the God of the Bible. After challenging humanist JC with important questions in Part 1 of 7 of the Bird Evolution Debate, he shared his “biggest brake” with “religion.”

See the transcript below for Part 2 of 7 of Bird Evolution Debate. Names are abbreviated for privacy and brevity.

JC:

Kevin, why do you want me to explain myself with all this? I don't like texting long explanations about myself, but what you ask you get your answers from science text books or online? My biggest brake from religion isn't from evolution but the actual history of the Bible and the religions.

Kevin:

Your original comment implied that you know “reality,” and that creationists do not. Why should I (as a creationist and Christian) not challenge your original comment?

Regarding the specific questions that I’ve asked, no science textbook or online source can adequately provide observable, testable, and repeatable answers that truly qualify as observational science. I’ve only ever read and heard hypotheses and “descriptions.” If you disagree, then you can try to provide answers, if you would like to continue that particular discussion.

You say that your “biggest brake” is not because of evolution, but because of the “…history of the Bible…” Might it be possible that that you are clinging to atheism and the evolutionary worldview in hope that the Bible is not true? Might this be a confirmation of Romans 1:18 which says “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth”?

I understand the hesitance to typing long explanations; it’s time consuming, and both you and I have lives outside of Facebook debates. I do appreciate the time that you’ve taken to respond to me. I want you to know that everything I’m saying is meant with sincerity and respect, and that I pray nothing but blessing for you.

JC:

Let's cut the crap here. Are you a believer in creationism? If so, please don't even waste my energy! I refuse to argue with such stubborn ignorance.

Kevin:

I’ve been respectful toward you, and I challenged your faith in the evolutionary worldview with questions that you’ve been unable to answer. If our discussion must end here, then that’s fine. May God bless you.

Fortunately, our discussion did not end here. Fruitful dialogue with JC followed after this, and JC became much more respectful toward me. I will post the continuation of my debate with JC in Part 3 of the Bird Evolution Debate to be shared in my next blog post.
