What does he come up with? A thousand foolish theories of evolution; and I reiterate that word, theories. He invents the nebular hypothesis, discards it; invents the primordial cell theory, discards it; then invents the fire-mist theory, and a hundred others. He writes volumes and fills huge libraries full of books and articles on evolution, on the origin of things, on the origin of the species and of the earth, and on the age of the earth. All these things can be and are interesting, but they aren’t important in the eternal scheme of things. All this time the natural, carnal man gives but little thought to the future, makes no preparation for eternity, has no interest in his future abode and refuses to study the one Book which can tell him about these things. Therefore he proceeds forward at breakneck speeds towards an endless and eternal hell.

Sadly, the natural, unregenerate, man has the same reckless concern about the origin of mankind. Instead of searching the Scriptures for God’s plan for his own eternal future, he neglects AND rejects all this and spends his time trying to find out where he came from. What does he come up with this time? Evolution again, and again. He expects us to believe that man began as a little cell; that the cell became a plant; the plant became a fish; the fish began to fly; the bird lost its feathers, grew hair and climbed a tree; the monkey lost his tail and much of his hair; and the result was man.

It reminds me of a humorous story I once heard long ago:

It’s about three monkeys discussing the theory of evolution. Sitting in a tree, one says to the others, “Listen, you two. There’s rumor going around that just can’t be true—that man descended from our noble race. Why, the very idea is a dire disgrace!”

Then, listing things monkeys don’t do, he continued, “You’ll never see a monkey build a fence around a coconut tree and then let all the coconuts go to waste, forbidding all others a taste. Here’s another thing a monkey won’t do: go out at night and get on a violent stew, or use a gun or a knife to take another monkey’s life. Yes, man descended—that ornery cuss. But brothers, he didn’t descend from us!”

I guess for now, all I can add is, ’nuff said!
