Intelligent Design (ID)
vs. Random-Chance Evolution Library

Random-chance evolution is the only alternative to the Biblical doctrine of creation, which is why secular folks are fighting tooth and toenail to preserve it.  They are losing the battle because, as has become apparent, the evidence does not support the theory.  It does not have empirical support, and it is logically flawed.   It is taught by law as scientific fact in government run schools, but it is supported by the very non-scientific "religion" of secularism.  Evolution is the secular "creation" story, and has all the same kinds of metaphysical presuppositions as the Biblical account -- but those presuppositions are ignored or denied by those who support evolution as an explanation of the cosmos and especially of life.

The difference is that the Biblical presuppositions can be reasonably justified, the secular presuppositions cannot.   See Personality, Empiricism, & God and Apologetics Library.  There will be many more materials supporting these assertions as time goes on.

For a background to these issues, see the Worldview Library.  All secular/pagan philosophy, worldview, and religion uses some form of evolution for its basic cosmic pattern.

Note that "evolution" per se is not the problem, which means simply "change over time".  We all evolve, e.g., from 1 year old to 2 years old.  The problem is rather the secularization of the cosmos, which leaves God out.  Everything "evolves" (or "devolves" -- as with entropy), i.e., changes over time.  The problem is not evolving as such, but whether the evolution is by random chance or by "intelligent design", meaning by an intelligent Creator.  Those are the two ultimate choices we have for worldviews.
