Evolution And Faith

Faith or Evolution BYU Studies are soliciting ABSTRACTS for a special issue on EVOLUTION AND FAITH, which will come out next year. (An abstract is a brief summery of research on a particular subject.)

Since BYU just installed a permanent display of the evolution of humankind in their Bean Museum and because  the theory of evolution is taught at BYU as the primary inception of mankind, a dear friend of mine suggested I submit an abstract for this special issue.  I have great respect for him. He taught for the Church Education System, was in the Stake Presidency with me, was a Mission President, and an executive secretary for a General Authority.  At his suggestion, I have prepared the following abstract.

My Expertise

Since I am not a biologist, how can I share anything meaningful about evolution?  We will see!  My expertise is precise timing – having helped with the development of GPS and official atomic time for the USA and the world.  I have witnessed a billion-fold improvement in the accuracy and stability of timekeeping, as the world moved from astronomical time to atomic time starting in 1967 with the redefinition of the “second” in terms of the Cs-133 hyperfine quantum transition.  It has been exciting to be part of this community.

My ORAL HISTORY has been recorded by the IEEE.1 (The IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.) For this Abstract, I have applied my scientific background as a time metrologist to the theory of evolution.

The Theory of Organic Evolution

Every scientist knows a theory or hypothesis cannot be proven true.  Data consistency does not prove it true.  Data correlation does not provide validation.  But a theory or hypothesis can be proven false, if reliable falsification data exist.  This falsification standard is very powerful in determining the TRUTH, since it does provide proof of what is not true.  This gauge can be applied to Darwin’s theory of organic evolution.

Am I A Monkey’s Uncle?

Monkeydo.jpgIs Darwin right?  Are we evolved creatures as is taught in most schools and universities including BYU?  Is science correct and the Bible wrong in regard to evolution?  Could I be a “Monkey’s Uncle”? Many believe God used evolution to bring about the human family.  The theory of organic evolution leads to atheism.  Of the leading American scientists, 93% are atheists or agnostics and don’t believe the Bible story of creation or salvation. Do you know where you came from, your potential, and where you are going?  Is there salvation; if so, how are we saved?

Answers to These Questions Are Vital to Our Happiness

The answers to these questions have an enormous impact upon how we feel about ourselves.  Did we come from God or slime?  Will we go back to God or to dirt, forever?  Am I a monkey’s uncle?

Scientific Evidence for Noah’s Flood

enhydro-quartz crystalsScience and religion are coming together through new evidence that Noah’s flood actually happened just as it is written about in the Bible.

There are two basic assumptions made by scientists regarding the geology of the Earth that have led most of them to disbelieve in the Bible.  I show both assumptions are flawed in Chapter 6 of my book.  The first assumption is that things change gradually over time (many millions of years) – the evolutionary assumption.  The second assumption is a spin-off of the first: if you include God, then it is not science.
