Evolution vs. God

Hear expert testimony from leading evolutionary scientists from some of the world’s top universities:

• Peter Nonacs, Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, UCLA
• Craig Stanford, Professor, Biological Sciences and Anthropology, USC
• PZ Myers, Associate Professor, Biology, University of Minnesota Morris
• Gail E. Kennedy, Associate Professor, Anthropology, UCLA

A study of the evidence of vestigial organs, natural selection, the fifth digit, the relevance of the stickleback, Darwin’s finches and Lenski’s bacteria—all under the microscope of the Scientific Method—observable evidence from the minds of experts. Prepare to have your faith shaken, if you are an atheist, and your faith bolstered, if you are a Christian.

Why Do People Deny the Existence of God?

No Rules

The Theory of Evolution is fraught with errors, our world screams designer, and other theories for life’s existence are far fetched and scientifically untenable – a comet or aliens bringing life, multiple universes, a cyclical universe that continually “Bangs” and “Crunches”. Why do people deny the existence of God?

An Ulterior Motive

I believe folks push evolution and these other theories, even though they are fraught with error because they want to live in world without God.

If God doesn’t exist they can live life on their own terms, according to their own rules. If God doesn’t exist, there is no one to which we have to answer.

I believe at it’s core this is why people push theories that are fraught with error. It’s not because science has proven them correct, its because they have an ulterior motive – to eradicate God from the world so they can live how they want.
