THE DEATHBED REGRET OF CHARLES DARWIN
By Francis Fawkes
“How I wished I had not expressed my theory of evolution as I have done.”
Charles Darwin 1809 - 1882
There is an interesting story that I came across unintentionally. It is an eyewitness report of Charles Darwin’s deathbed recantation of his theory of evolution. In his book: “The Origin of Species”, he postulated that life evolved from lower forms into more complex life forms. He was the one that claimed man descended from the ape. His theory was very controversial especially among Clergymen and Christians in general. They believed that God created man in his image as expressed in Genesis 1:26 - 27.
Charles Darwin was trained to be a Clergyman of the Church of
England. After graduating from
Here are scientific facts that contradict the theory of evolution:
The theory of
evolution is only a hypothesis. It is a logical fallacy based on a false
premise, leading to many false conclusions in many other fields.
v Evolution is just a variant of the old medieval notion called spontaneous generation in which something can come out of nothing. This was proven to be unscientific.
v The big-bang theory contradicts the scientific principle inherent in the second law of thermodynamics which states that all systems left on their own move from order to chaos. The world, the solar system and the universe therefore, could not come from the big-bang. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. All of it came out of God (Genesis 1:1). Actually the universe is in a state of decay after man sinned. The odds of the universe coming into existence by random chance are 1 in 26 to the 44th power. In other words, it is not possible.
v In over 150 years, no real missing links have been found. Darwin himself said that that the absence of transitional forms would prove his theory false.
v There are no real evolutionary links between fishes, reptiles, birds, lower mammals and man. God created every species after its own kind (Genesis 1: 24 - 25).
v Some scientists believe that life came about through a series of mutations. However scientists claim that 99 per cent of mutations are harmful or lethal. New life forms could not have come through a series of unfavorable mutations.
v In a study in which there were twelve missing links in the evolution of man, nine were proven to be extinct apes or monkeys. Others were based on the remains of pigs and donkeys. Some known frauds are the Piltdown man and the Ramapithecus man.
v The theory of evolution goes against the law of probability. The odds of life coming into existence by through blind chance are 1 in 10 to the 40, 000th power. This is also an impossibility. It had to come from God, the original designer. In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1).
v According to a brilliant English astronomer, Sir Fred Hoyle, the chances of higher life forms ever evolving is the same as a tornado sweeping through a junk-yard, assembling a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.
his deathbed, realizing the error of his observations and his skepticism,
there is a ray of hope. This is
beginning to change especially in
Darwin’s final Position
Below are the words of the hymn that Charles Darwin requested:
THERE IS A GREEN HILL FAR AWAY
There is a green hill far away,
Outside a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.
O dearly, dearly has He loved,
And we must love Him too,
And trust in His redeeming blood,
And try His works to do.
We may not know, we cannot tell,
What pains He had to bear;
But we believe it was for us,
He hung and suffered there.
He died that we might be forgiv’n,
He died to make us good,
That we might go as last to Heav’n,
Saved by His precious blood.
There was no other good enough
To pay the pride of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of Heaven and let us in
