Darwin Makes No Difference?

As we approach the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth, there is, understandably much debate over creation. Many people as usual are getting very hot under the collar. And of course debate is good, especially reasoned debate, and especially debate that gets God on the agenda.

But really, I don’t give two hoots whether Darwin was right or wrong.

If he was right, then firstly, good on him for spending the time, giving it such thought and time and energy and for challenging the status quo. But mainly I will marvel at the Creator who was behind it all.

If he was wrong, then still good on him for giving it such thought and time and energy and for challenging the status quo. (Only of course it was a bit of a waste of his time). But I will still marvel at the Creator who was behind it all.

You see I don’t care whether he was right or wrong because I have met with the living God. And I don’t have faith in Him because I have all the answers. I have faith in Him because I don’t.
