The “Galapagos Islands” has been synonymous with the name Charles Darwin and evolution in my mind, how about you?
Well, I don’t believe in evolution and I’m intrigued by a book I received free to review (as Mom of Master Books reviewer) called Galapagos Islands: A Different View. Twenty-nine contributing authors make up this different view, Georgia Purdom is the General Editor.
Galapagos Islands: A Different View has over 100 pages of text and beautiful pictures. References about Darwin (with source documentation) are also included in this book. Here’s a quote regarding Darwin’s remarks about his personal beliefs I want to share from page 47
“Whilst on board the Beagle I was quite orthodox, and I remember being heartily laughed at by several of the officers (though themselves orthodox) for quoting the Bible as an unanswerable authority on some point of morality. I suppose it was the novelty of the argument that amused them. But I had gradually come, by this time, to see that the Old Testament from its manifestly false history of the world, with the Tower of Babel, the rainbow as a sign, etc., etc. and from its attributing to God the feelings of a revengeful tyrant, was no more to be trusted than the sacred books of the Hindus, or the beliefs of the barbarian.”
I want to ask – is it possible that Darwin derived his conclusions from a basis of being anti- God and if so doesn’t that make his conclusions subjective rather than objective? The same is thought of Christians, isn’t it? I’m sure some people think that because we believe in God and the Bible our reasons are subjective too. At this point we need to look at the scientific evidence, and I do believe the evidence undeniably supports the Bible and creation.
If right now you are putting your faith in Darwin and the theory of evolution are you willing to consider the possibility that science may actually support the creation perspective ?
Moving right along, let’s consider the problem with radioactive carbon dating as stated below (see picture).
I look forward to reading more of this book as I haven’t finished it yet. And, yes there is a lot of reading to it and I’ve been underlining my way through it!
Grab the book if you want to find out more. You’ll find Galapagos Islands: A Different View on Amazon or at New Leaf Publishing’s website, $18.99 (possibly cheaper on Amazon).
