Define "Evolution"/Theory of Evolution

21 posts in this topic

I've been on this forum for about a month or so and,  I've got to say....What in The World?

 

Everybody appears to have a different definition....like armpits, Everybody has one.

 

So for Clarification and to eliminate Confusion; can you provide a Clear, Concise, and Specific definition.  Just so everybody's on the same page and we can get to "Choppin Wood", so to speak.

 

 

Cited Support for said definition would obviously be a Plus.

 

 

Thanks

"Evolution" is restricted to biological changes of living organisms over time.

 

However, "evolution" tends to become the catch phrase for all science dealing with the Big Bang theory, a 13+ billion year-old universe, theories on galaxy formation and solar system formation, and a five billion year old earth.

 

However, these are their their own elements and are their own theories. Even though they tend to fit together, the argument for one is not necessarily the argument for another.

 

Now, while it is impossible for someone to argue evolution apart from an old Earth, it is possible for someone to argue an old earth without evolution being in the mix.

Weeping And Rejoicing

 

"At any point in all of Eternity, we can say, 'This is just the beginning.' How wonderful for those who are with Christ. How unimaginably dreadful for those who are not." - Leonard Ravenhill

 

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Psalms 126:5-6

Fool's Dance

 

Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay:

 

for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not?

 

or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it,

 

He had no understanding? Isaiah 29:16

 

Beggars Prayer

 

Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

 

Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

 

Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

 

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Romans 12:15-18

 

And The Heart Of The Matter

 

And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. Ephesians 3:18 (NLT)

Theory of Evolution:  nothing, then something, then something more, then something less, then something, and now nothing.

 

The evolution of man reached its peak, now it is devolving into an animal, impulsive, predatory, and with no concept of the decency that made it human.  It consumes, it devours, it destroys.

 

But then, there are still human beings too, nurturing the young, feeding the hungry, protecting the weak, compassionate.

 

Civilization is at war with those beasts.  Those who wish to become mindless, souless, wretched monsters, fulfilling their every impulses, and where there are no consequences for the strong.  Nothing is tragic, there is no love and life means nothing to them.

And.......?

 

 

Also, are you familiar with this definition.....

 

‘General Theory of Evolution’, defined by the evolutionist Kerkut as ‘the theory that all the living forms in the world have arisen from a single source which itself came from an inorganic form.’

Kerkut, G.A., Implications of Evolution, Pergamon, Oxford, UK, p. 157, 1960.

He's saying that evolution doesn't touch on where or how life began or came from, only what generated from a life form that had come to be.
