After the service on Sunday, January 27, there will be a discussion group on Creation and Evolution. We will be watching a DVD documentary called: "Unlocking the Mystery of Life". It does several things: 1. Reviews Darwin's Theory of Evolution, 2. Considers the present issue of the fact that even inside cells, there are incredibly complex machines that could not have evolved from small random changes -- implies and Intelligent Designer 3. Considers the issue of the origin of cells themselves, and how the proteins and DNA's information require imply a Intelligent Designer. ... all of the Scientists interviewed are former believers in evolution who as they looked at the facts came to be confronted with the impossibility of evolutionary theory. They felt forced to conclude from the data that there must have been a designer.
The DVD does not discuss some related issues such as the methods of dating, the strata of the earth, the absence of transitional fossils. We can discuss this more in the meeting. But the DVD deals with some core issues that must be answered first before any further assumptions about evolution by natural selection can be considered.
