Is evolution science?

First we need to define the term science. Science is the study of God’s creation by means of observation, repeatable testing with the same results and detailed logs that other scientist can confirm. True science is in the present, observable and testable. Real science is when a scientist or researcher in some field wants to obtain some knowledge. That person will do a series of experiments and log the process and results. He or she will write that information down in detail and share this finding with the scientific community in a science journal. Other scientist will do that same series of experiments and if they get the same results, will verify each other to make sure everything was done correctly. That is real science.

Now back to our question… Is evolution science? The answer is no. Why? Because evolution is not observable or testable. No one has seen evolution at work nor has anyone found any real evidence to back up the belief. Evolution cannot work because new genetic information is needed whenever a higher form of life appears. In order for a fish to grow legs, new information must be encoded into the DNA. For a reptile to grow feathers, new information must be encoded into the DNA. For an ape like creature to evolve into a human, new information must be encoded into the DNA. This new information must be added or replace old information with new instructions to grow legs, feathers, or human traits. Nowhere in science can new information arise by itself. No one has ever witnessed this.

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
