Multiple Failures of Darwinism          A Missing Link          Another Missing Link

A Built on Rock Website Welcome

The cause of my writing this website is undoubtedly Richard Dawkins with particular reference to his unnecessarily vicious reply to a young female questioner at a university in Virginia. The Q & A session had followed readings from one of his books, the God Delusion.


She had asked the terrifyingly simple question: “What if you are wrong?”


Both the question and the reply have circled the globe via You Tube, gleefully distributed by his many disciples.


My belief is that Richard Dawkins is not only wrong but provably wrong. This website is provocative and confrontational by design. I have sought out the areas of weakness in the belief that evolutionists have, in boxing parlance, glass jaws. My intention is to hit these areas sufficiently hard and often in order to shatter the illusion of certainty that frames Darwin’s theory in general and in particular the interpretations of it promulgated by Richard Dawkins. This sounds like an ambition too far; but if evolutionary theory is as I suspect, devoid of good science and good sense and filled with errors and unsubstantiated claims, then anything is possible.


WHO OR WHAT MADE EVERYTHING? HOW WAS IT DONE. WHY IS NATURE AS IT IS? WHY THIS WEIRD COMBINATION OF GOOD AND EVIL? IS IT RANDOM CHANCE OR IS IT DESIGNED? WHY SHOULD CREATURES LIKE US BE ENDOWED WITH CONSCIOUSNESS AND THINK OF ASKING QUESTIONS LIKE:


RICHARD DAWKINS WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?


These questions relate to who or what created nature and the universe and whether or not that being or process had any interest in how it was experienced by the creatures that inhabited it. The fascinating thing about the question of creation is that there are only two possible options to choose from. The best statement of this truth I have ever read is quoted below. D.J. Futuyma is a convinced evolutionist who graduated with a B.S. from Cornell University, and took his M.S. and Ph.D. at the University of Michigan.


"Creation and evolution, between them, exhaust the possible explanations for the origin of living things. Organisms either appeared on the earth fully developed or they did not. If they did not, they must have developed from pre-existing species by some process of modification. If they did appear in a fully developed state, they must have been created by some omnipotent intelligence."


D.J. Futuyma, Science on Trial.


These are the only these two choices; Futuyma believes the evidence is stacked in favour of evolutionary explanations. I am a Creationist who believes God created the world habitable with fully mature human, animal and plant life. And He created it good, that goodness being of a type that would satisfy the most demanding critic. Did it go wrong? Yes it did, catastrophically and the Bible is concerned with how God worked out its redemption and man’s reaction to those initiatives. I do not deny the power of the arguments that stand in opposition to the statement of faith made above, but I contend that they can, each and every one be shown to be false or misdirected. Demanding objective proof is unreasonable, neither side can prove what they believe is true. But circumstantial proof is sufficient in law and I believe this level of proof can be demonstrated.


The purpose of this website is to present evidence, most of it scientific, that will encourage Christian believers and demonstrate that evolution as Darwin perceived it is a fractured and disintegrating 19th century theory incapable of coping with modern scientific discoveries.
