All Hail the Power of . . . Darwin's Name?

According to a report from "Answers in Genesis," over 400 congregations in 49 states in the USA will participate this Sunday (February 12) in what could be called a “Darwin praise service.” They will be celebrating the 197th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin. It’s called “Evolution Sunday.”

The pastors and leadership of these church buildings will try to educate their congregants that science and faith can co-exist, as long as science has the larger berth of the two.

Of course, many evolutionists would completely disagree with that statement, as the linked article explains.

This begs the question that science and evolution are logically equivalent. Naturalistic science is practically equivalent to evolution simply because naturalistic scientists haven't come up with a better naturalistic theory (aside from a few kooks who realize that evolution is untenable and have speculated that we were put here by beings from some other planet). Naturalistic science by definition excludes possibilities, including the possibility of God. Therefore, naturalistic science cannot be reconciled with God.

On the other hand, true science is not naturalistic. True science is founded not on naturalism, but on truth. True science, therefore, is inextricable from the Creator of Truth.
