The book Refuting Evolution 2, by Dr. Jonathan D. Sarfati, exposes the false premise behind many evolutionary theories or hypothesis. Dr. Sarfati brings to light some of the problems with evolution and the manipulation of the humanistic world view. He tries to make the book understandable, so that Christians can talk about evolution versus creation and not be intimidated.
Creation versus evolution is a battle of different faiths. Modern evolutionist desire for ever person to think of science as a subject that is void of God. Evolutionist have discovered was to get the general public to ignore that propaganda being produced by humanist and just follow their thoughts and not search for truth. Creationists have the same facts as evolutionist but have a different origin of where everything started. Creationist believes the biblical account of where life began, so this places God in the middle of science. Evolutionists have a religion, which is known as materialism.

As the word itself signifies, Materialism is a philosophical system which regards matter as the only reality in the world, which undertakes to explain every event in the universe as resulting from the conditions and activity of matter, and which thus denies the existence of God and the soul.Creationists do not need to shy away from having God in science but rather need to make evolutionist abide by same standards. If evolutionists do not want to be challenged in the academia world, then they should abide by same rules given to creationists. Evolutionist for years have been allowed to give out false information and the author shows how Christians have followed blindly and not had courage to stand for biblical truths. Charles Darwin had a deeper issue than just proving that living creatures evolved. His agenda was to retaliate against God for the hurt and loss of a daughter. Darwin purposefully denied that involvement of God in science and it has influenced that Christian world view. Anger and bitterness have caused generations of people to follow blind after the thoughts of one man.
The Christian today has forgotten what it is to stand for truth. The author points out several facts that Christians have fallen away from the faith because they compromised with the world. Christian colleges have tried to accept all types of doctrine and ignore the biblical stance of truth. This has allowed secular people to show the fallacy and the inerrancy of the so called â€œChristiansâ€. The world believes it has been able to disprove Godâ€™s involvement in science but it has only proven the fallacy of man.To say evolution is a theory is wrong and the proper statement should be, â€œEvolution is not a proven fact and should not be presented dogmatically.â€ Science is going from observation, induction, hypothesis, test, hypothesis by experiment, proof/disproof, and then to knowledge.
A theory is a mathematical or logical explanation, or a testable model of the manner of interaction of a set of natural phenomena, capable of predicting future occurrences or observations of the same kind, and capable of being tested through experiment or otherwise verified through empirical observation. As the author points out evolution (particles turned to people over time) can not get past the stage of testing to be considered a theory.The author gives several examples of how evolutionist uses straw-man arguments to combat creation. Evolution is not a good theory because it is widely accepted or thousand of journals supporting. The author point out that the scientific community is so closed minded and full of censorship that creationist do not get a fair say. The best way to debate a topic is to allow both parties to present facts and then to evaluate the arguments, but evolutionist are not willing.
Biblical creationist is not the belief that creatures can not change over time or with in a species but that they descended from their own kind. Just because a species adapts to its surroundings does not mean that it is because of evolution. Evolution is the gathering of new genetic information and not just loss or sorting of information. Natural selection does not do anything to advance the general theory of evolution. Trying to use the changes in an ecosystem simply shows changes from one already existing species to another existing species. Evolutionists are trying to use information, that creationists believe, to prove the GTE but it does not increase genetic information. God could have created the ability of fight/flight in his foreknowledge and when the fall of man took place the information was switched on.
Evolution has the perfect opportunity to proven with bacteria but we see same some today as was in past generations. Scientists are using current diseases and their resistance to medicine to show us evolution at work today. This just shows a loss of information to battle bacteria.
