Time to confess. I now consider myself an evolutionary creationist. I have no choice. The evidence for biological evolution is so overwhelming…
…Just kidding! April Fool’s!
I am still an old-earth creationist. Even though the evolutionary paradigm is the prevailing framework in biology, I am skeptical about facets of it. I am more convinced than ever that a creation model approach is the best way to view life’s origin, design, and history. It’s not to say that there isn’t evidence for common descent; there is. Still, even with this evidence, I prefer old-earth creationism for three reasons.
- First, a creation model approach can readily accommodate the evidence for common descent within a design framework.
- Second, the evolutionary paradigm struggles to adequately explain many of the key transitions in life’s history.
- Third, the impression of design in biology is overwhelming—and it’s becoming more so every day.
And that is no joke.
