In today’s public schools, children are daily being taught that the theory of evolution is fact when in reality, evolution is an unproven theory. Science professors and teachers, in contrast to the way they present evolution, depict creationism as a faith-based view.
What students are not being taught is that both evolutionism and creationism are faith-based, and neither can be proven by science. By definition, science is the study of the universe based on observations. It is impossible to observe evolution or creation since both would have had to occur in the past. Therefore, neither can be proven by science, and both fall into the realm of matters that are accepted by faith.
Even many evolutionists know and admit that their theory is completely based on faith. Noted evolutionary scientists have stated that “The idea of an evolution rests on pure belief” and that “In explaining evolution we do not have one iota of fact.” Perhaps this quote from Dr. George Wald, a biology professor at the University at Harvard, is the most striking:
“There are only two possibilities as to how life arose; one is spontaneous generation arising to evolution, the other is a creative act of God, there is no third possibility. Spontaneous generation that life arose from non-living matter was scientifically disproved 120 years ago by Louis Pasteur and others. That leaves us with only one possible conclusion, that life arose as a creative act of God. I will not accept that philosophically because I do not want to believe in God, therefore I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible, spontaneous generation arising to evolution.”
If creationism is not allowed in public schools because it is faith-based, neither should evolutionism be allowed in public schools, for it is also faith-based. Since evolutionists can impose their beliefs on students, why can’t creationists teach theirs?
