I find the claims of both Gould and Ayala, that evolution is fact, outrageous (The Scientist, November 17, 1986, pp. 10-11). The very foundation of evolution, which assumes that order and complexity evolved from chaos, contravenes science. The second law of thermodynamics dictates that order spontaneously gives way to chaos as time proceeds. Consider the DNA molecule. Evolutionists postulate that the first nucleic acids formed in the primeval oceans, which were rich in organic compounds. The statistical chance of having the right sequence of nucleotides to form even the simplest DNA molecule is less than remote.

Assuming that the DNA did form in this way, what value would it have in a hostile environment and in the absence of a cellular medium containing enzymes necessary to read and manipulate the DNA? Ironically, enzymes are derived from the DNA. While intraspecies evolution can be seen taking place in all forms of life, there is no proof for interspecies evolution. How can it then be said that evolution is fact?

Creationism, however, is a sound science. It teaches that the laws of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology were formulated by a Superior Being. These laws were then put in motion by the Being when He created a mature universe in six days. Man was mature. The animals and forest were mature. So were the universe and the minerals, all with apparent ages. All nature strictly adheres to these laws.

Creationism, taught by unbiased scientists, would produce graduates who are better equipped for science and society than the teachings of evolution could ever hope to produce. Creationism teaches meaning and purpose in life whereas evolution teaches a meaningless existence which came about by chance, making man nothing more than a superior animal. What a dismal theory.
