Creation from God, not science

Creation from God, not science

Letter-writer Michael Eppers ["Scientific evidence trumps religious views," May 6] states "Science is all about evidence."

Then please explain the "theory" of evolution. The evidence he values so highly is woefully lacking! The "missing link" that science has long been seeking has never been discovered--because it does not and never will exist.

The writer even mentions "the wondrous world we live in." This verse is for him and all other nonbelievers:

"They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God." (Romans 1:19-20, NLT)

Religion, specifically Christianity, on the other hand, is all about faith:

"For we walk by faith, not by sight." (2 Corinthians 5:7, NKJV)

"By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God's command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen." (Hebrews 11:3, NLT)

"Only fools say in their hearts, 'There is no God.'" (Psalm 53:1, NLT)

And I say only a fool would choose to believe they are descended from an ape rather than divinely created by our omniscient heavenly Father!

Countless martyrs from the past even until today died for their faith. That is evidence enough for me to believe in the great God of all creation.
