Darwin's Proof: The Triumph of Religion over Scienceby Cornelius G. Hunter
"There is much more in Darwin's theory than just science." In Darwin's Proof, Cornelius Hunter confronts Darwin's theory of evolution head on, revealing its scientific, philosophical, and theological failures. Following the success of Darwin's God, Hunter exposes the weaknesses in evolution's scientific "proof" and reveals its philosophical contradiction: Darwinists vehemently claim that religion plays no role in their theory, but they rely on assumptions of God's character in order to argue that he couldn't have made this world. And given that creation is not possible, they argue, evolution is then the only other alternative. Hunter shows how Western religious traditions in the centuries leading up to Darwin laid the foundation for evolution. Natural theology, in particular, promoted a nonscriptural doctrine of God that ultimately led to a distancing of God from creation and Darwin's theory of evolution.
Darwinists and even many Christians hold on to the assumption that "creation is an end unto itself and a thing that God would certainly strive to make perfect if it were possible." In contrast to this flawed paradigm of perfection, Hunter shows how the doctrine of general revelation explains the flaws of creation: "We should view creation's purpose as communicating truths... Yes, the heavens declare the glory of God, but we should also expect to see creation in decay." Critical thinkers who are looking for an intelligent response to evolution's over-confidence will welcome this bold statement, and it will have enormous appeal for Christians who want a scientific, philosophical, and theological response to the claims of evolution.
