Unmasking Darwin's Deception

Imposters are elusive. Just ask FBI agent Joe Shea, who spent years trying to catch Frank Abagnale, Jr., one of the most notorious con artists in recent history. Abagnale posed as an international airline pilot, a medical doctor, an attorney, a university professor, and much more, all between the ages of 16 and 21. During that time he defrauded banks around the world of more than $2 million, primarily through passing forged checks. Through careful research, investigation, and thousands of man hours, Shea and other law enforcement authorities eventually nabbed Abagnale and sent him to prison. A lot of damage was left in the wake of his deception, both among the institutions he defrauded and the people he conned.

Effective deception is often subtle in its approach and reasonable in its appearance—it can look like the real thing.

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

One of the greatest deceptions discovered is “natural selection” as described in Charles Darwin’s famous On the Origin of Species. Darwin invented a seemingly scientifically reasonable concept that he hoped would explain the unique appearance and workings of life without acknowledging the Creator. As a result, the personification of nature took hold within a science community eager to do away with the philosophical and theological arguments that insisted that God existed, and as such was both Creator and Judge.

Now, 150 years later, Darwin’s critics are arising even among devout evolutionists who can no longer reconcile the evidence of real science with this metaphorical imposter called “natural selection.” But as dissent begins to grow within the evolutionary establishment, scientists who affirm the person and work of the Creator must also begin to re-evaluate their understanding, and even use, of the term “natural selection.” Is it a God-designed process, as some creation scientists have stated?

This month, Dr. Randy Guliuzza begins a series in Acts & Facts to reveal the results of his investigation to unmask what he’s calling “Darwin’s Sacred Imposter.” As you follow along this year, ask yourself if Darwin’s “natural selection” gives glory to God, or seeks to steal it from our Creator. Don’t miss this exciting new series.

Dr. Henry Morris III continues his feature articles on the three key terms describing the Institute for Creation Research: Biblical. Accurate. Certain. This month he explains how the work of ICR always endeavors to maintain accuracy, both in research and in communication of truth.

Recently, ICR hosted nearly 40 Prestonwood Christian Academy students at our Creation Science Investigation during spring break. Bone digs, lab work, and field trips—read more about it from Dr. Rhonda Forlow on page 22.

Finally, ICR is pleased to announce that we’re accepting applications for the new online degree program at the School of Biblical Apologetics. See our announcement on pages 10-11, and check out our school site at www.icr.edu.

Thanks again for investing your prayers and financial support with the ministry of ICR.
