The Creation of Evolution

The Creation of Evolution
by Owen Waters

Life is hard. Species can die. In fact, the human race would have died
long ago if it weren’t for the fact that our bodies are designed to
adapt to a constantly changing environment.

Evolution could be called adaptation, because the ability to adapt is
the one feature that keeps all life upon Earth alive and functioning.
In the laboratory, it has been noted that a frog can be heated in a
beaker of water to a degree that would normally be fatal, but it
remains alive because it has had the time to adapt to the increasing
temperature. Had the frog been suddenly exposed to water of such high
temperature, it would have been unable to survive.

Charles Darwin, the pioneer of evolution theory, was a trained
minister of religion as well as a naturalist. He thought long and hard
about releasing his findings about the natural evolution of the
species because he was keenly aware of the materialistic element in
society which would use this information against religion. He was
right, of course.

Others used his work to claim that there was no need for divine
selection when natural selection occurs automatically. They have since
gone on to claim that all life could have risen from prehistoric
sludge completely by accident. What they don’t even begin to explain,
however, is the existence of consciousness in all of this.

Consciousness is necessary for natural selection and adaptation to
occur. If you move from a hot climate to a cold climate, you will
adapt to the new environment, but first you had to have the
consciousness to decide upon the move.

What is consciousness? It is certainly more than a few electrical
signals bouncing around inside a brain. Computers can mimic some
limited aspects of the brain such as human logic, but they are not
self-aware. There isn’t a computer in the world that can think for
itself. Computers just follow sets of preset rules, and they do so as
quickly as possible.

Beneath all forms of consciousness is awareness. A sense of being is
fundamental to all life because all life is constructed from
consciousness. Even a solid object like a rock is composed of original
thought and original feeling set into motion. All of life is contained
within the consciousness of the original Creator, including the
prehistoric sludge from which the first biological cells were formed.

Materialistic science today is in a cul-de-sac. There is no way
forward for branches of science which fail to include consciousness in
their theories. Consciousness is the most fundamental aspect of life.
You can’t have a universe without it.

Human beings were originally designed and then evolved within the
framework of a conscious universe, one created and developed by the
original Creator. It took billions of years for planets to form and
biological life to emerge and evolve, but remember this: Time is a
creation of the Creator.

The Creator does not have to wait billions of years to see a
biological process emerge. Everything happens in the now, just in
different parts of the tapestry of time, which the Creator sees as a

The whole design, inception, development and evolution of the universe
is happening right now, within that overview, as seen by the original
Creator. A little tweak here and there along the timeline can produce
a perfect rendition of any form of biological life. Life is too
interesting to create in one big bang and then just watch it unfold,
as if on auto-pilot. Life is a work in progress, a true work of art,
and the Creator has the ability to make adjustments at any point along
the timelines.

Science today searches for answers, but what it really needs is a
valid search path. Life did not begin by accident. It began by design.
Those branches of science which include the presence of consciousness
will find the answers that they seek when they include the existence
of original consciousness and intelligent design in their search.
