God made evolution, Nazarene prof says
Professional danger comes in many flavors, and although Richard Colling doesn’t jump into forest fires or test experimental jets for a living, he does do the academic’s equivalent: He teaches biology and evolution at a fundamentalist Christian college.

At Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Ill., he says, “as soon as you mention evolution in anything louder than a whisper, you have people who aren’t very happy.” And within the larger conservative Christian community, he adds, “I’ve been called some interesting names.”

But those experiences haven’t stopped Colling – who received a Ph.D. in microbiology, chairs the biology department at Olivet Nazarene and is himself a devout conservative Christian – from coming out swinging. In his new book, “Random Designer,” he writes: “It pains me to suggest that my religious brothers are telling falsehoods” when they say evolutionary theory is “in ...

I am surprised that no one mentioned:

The Institution of Creation Research, to the best of my knowledge, is quite acceptable to the Reformed Church. They always have a lot of information to debate Evolutionists.

Evolution implies an increase in information content, across generations, at the genetic level. This is hardly what happens in the growth of an individual! Be precise in terminology.

All evolution means is that things change.We all go through EV.from baby to abult.The Bible says in many places that God made things "After its kind".the idea where things change from one thing to another is not in the Bible.

Well,here we go again.Just like the so-called "Christian"professors that I had when I went to a "Christian"college.I suppose he also "believes the Bible",too? Here is a scripture I wish these "Bible Believing"
christians would explain.Prov.20:12"The hearing ear, and the seeing eye,the LORD
hath made even both of them." If some of these mental giants would inform
us ignorant clod-hoppers how an eye or an ear could possibly evolve, I would certainly appreciate it.Due to the enormous complexity of both,neither would work unless completely formed.Let just one facet of either become incapacitated and they dont work.So,how about it Mr.Scientific Genius,can you give us a logical scenario for the evolutionary developement of the ear and eye? And PLEASE dont say
"It just did".That requires FAITH and I have that in the LORD JESUS CHRIST And the Bible that HE upheld.If you say that the eye or ear evolved and the Bible says that God made each one already doing what He designed them to do, then you cannot possibly believe the BIBLE You cannot have it both ways.You either believe it or you dont!! I BELIEVE IT JUST LIKE IT IS WRITTEN. Disprove the Bible or Prove evolution.I dont believe you can do either.

I'd be curious to hear how the good professor reconciles the evolutionary concept of death before sin with Christianity.

It often astonishes me how tortured the logic of evolutionists have grown. They show simple examples of minor genetic variation ("micro-evolution"--no new genetic information), and claim it proves the descent of all life forms on earth from a common ancestor ("macro-evolution"--new genetic information production is required)! It's analogous to declaring that because I can drive a car from Washington D.C. to Baltimore, it obviously proves that I can drive it to the moon!

Evolution may have stood the test of some 'time' as the Professor claims, but it certainly hasn't stood the test of science.
(Irreducible complexity is the main deathblow to evolution, which evolutionists now wish to answer by a theory called 'punctuated equilibrium' which is just another word for 'spontaneous creation' really, not that they'd ever call it that of course)

In Mark 13:19 Jesus Himself mentions the truth of Genesis chapter one, and in Matt.19:4 and Mark 10:6 He sets His seal on the scriptures concerning the creation of man.

So, in my opinion I'd be far more "stupid" to deny the words of Christ and true science, than to deny 'science falsely so called'.

Evolution is the biggest hoax in the history of the world!
Evolution is a religion that they can keep. It takes alot of faith to believe this garbage with not one shred of evidence of Macro-evolution. They try to slicker you like so many cults by using smoke and mirrors. They will show examples of micro-evolution and then jump you into full blown evolution which takes GOD out of creation. The only known Christian groups who teach evolution are suspect groups to me and I'll have no part of them. They attack the foundation or the Christian faith by having death before the fall of Adam. Death entered into this world through Adam and through Jesus Christ we have salvation. If death was already present before Adam ; GOD told us wrong. I'll stand by GOD and what he has told us.

the manifest idiocy of granting an omniscient, omnibenevolent, omnipotant, and omnipresent God, YET just finding it impossible to explain how, for ex. the world could have been flooded. It just boggles the mind. I have encountered this contraditication in more than a few philosophy professors too

News Item12/19/04 4:35 PM
it is a sad thing that many christians have fallen for junk science for no other reason than that it's bark is loud. I bet Moses didn't sound so much like the authority of God as the scientists who state the on June 12th 55.3 Billion years ago thus and thus. Somebody mentioned something on another thread about what Newton would think that was right on. I learned actually just the other day that he wrote commentaries on Daniel and Revelation.

the guy says “evolution has stood the test of time and considerable scrutiny.”

are you kidding me? evolution is a historical narrative meant to explain, created in the same way as the development of myths - it's problem is not that it has been scrutinized and failed - it's problem is that it is unscrutinizABLE - it's a totally unscientific historical narrative.

And furthermore, if one assumes an all powerful eternal being with limitless capability, what kind of idiot would then think that evolution is still needed to explain things? It'd be kind of like inviting Emeril the tv chef over to watch you cook something according to a tv chef. If you have one in the living room, why shove him aside and think the tv chef is all you have to explain cooking a ham or whatever.

In the same way, so-called 'christian' teachers in Nazi Germany, Communist `official church' China, and the old USSR 'state church' upheld their twisting of true doctrine to make a heresy “fully compatible with ....contemporary religious beliefs.” In addition, denying the Eternal word of God makes 'christian' professors look stupid.
Here you have a man with a stupid `god' who can't get it right the first time, uses millions of years of death, suffering disease and extinction to arrive at what Gen. 1 calls a 'very good' earth. This addled thinking leads to the prof calling the disproven
religion of evilution 'science'.
1 Tim.6:"keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen"
Is.8"20"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."

I'd rather be a fool in the world's eyes preaching the inspired, inerrant Word of the Living God, than a fool in God's eyes, such as this "Christian" professor, who denies the clear teaching of the Scripture regarding the creative actions of our God.
