When I was going to school, and even more so now, evolution was taught as a fact. I became a Christian at an early age and I always knew deep down inside that evolution was wrong. However, I did not know how to explain this to other people. I mean, seriously, did we come from ape-like creatures? Or were we created in God’s image as the Bible says?
I am very grateful to many creation speakers like Ken Ham and Dr. Kent Hovind. They really opened my eyes and filled me with the knowledge of the truth. I had been brainwashed by evolutionary thinking from my youth, and it was a great feeling having the scales lifted from my eyes.
Dr. Hovind’s Creation Seminar really changed my life and how I view the world. If you have not seen it, I highly recommend that you do so. You can go to the video section of this website and view it for free.
In his seminar, Dr. Hovind gives a great explanation of what evolution actually is. He presents the six meanings of evolution. Not many people realize that there are six meanings to the word.
The six meanings of evolution:
1. Cosmic Evolution – The origin of time, space, and matter with the Big Bang.
2. Chemical Evolution – The origin of higher elements beyond hydrogen and helium.
3. Stellar and Planetary Evolution – The origin of the stars and planets.
4. Organic Evolution – The origin of life from non-life.
5. Macro Evolution – Changing from one kind of animal into another kind. Ex: ape to human.
6. Micro Evolution – Variation within the kinds. Ex: long-haired, short-haired, long-legged, short-legged, etc.
Only micro evolution, number six on the list, has ever been observed. The other five are not scientific at all as they have never been observed. People believe in them yes, but that does not make it science.
If you debate evolutionists you will find that all they ever give for evidence are examples of micro evolution. Well, micro evolution happens yes, but evidence for micro evolution does not somehow magically become evidence for the other five types of evolution.
I hope this gives you a better understanding on what the meanings of evolution are. If you want to win the debate on evolution: simply define exactly what you are talking about. Micro evolution happens, but it is not really evolution at all. It is simply changes within a kind.
