Comment on Changing the Wording of Adventist Fundamental Belief #6 on Creation by John Johansson.
Stephen, don’t despair. Be happy you are among the one percent. I think your numbers, however, are too pessimistic. I know of no-one leaving GRI as evolutionist. You can ask James Gibson or Timmothy Standish at the institute about that. They are all stalwart creationists. If you need scientific argument for creation and against evolution, I would recommend studying the concept of genetic entropi, which means genetic overload of destructive mutations accumulating from one generation to the next. Any constructive mutation that might exist would be swamped by all the destructive ones. So called living fossils should be gone long ago. Also study the sedimentary layers staring at us everywhere. Each layer, supposedly representing an eon, is distinctly separated from each other with no sign of significant erosion between them. Millions of years of exposure, before the next layer is formed, should surely have blurred/obliterated the line between the layers. Knowing that one meter of mountainous rock is eroded in a one thousand year period means that the Himalaya would be pulverized in less than 10 million years. These are just two examples that can justify doubt in the evolutionary theory even on scientific grounds.

How can we falsify something that is not falsifiable? It is outside the range of empirical science. This holds true for both evolution and creation. Years of state subsidized funding and major private endowments have not succeeded to prove evolution. Confuse not “simple” adaptation of a species, which is demonstrable, with that of “amoeba to man” evolution. Many scientists use the concept of micro-evolution as proof of macro-evolution. That is a leap of faith.
GRI, its resources are miniscule compared to that of secular institutions. The SDA church has, in spite of that, withstood the onslaught of secular indoctrination on origins. Praise God.

How can evolution be “predictive and falsifiable” when its basic premise is chance, chance mutation and chance environment. It is outside the realm of empirical science, very similar to that of creation.
