Natural selection. For many who hold to a six-day, Biblical Creation, the mere mention of natural selection can be unsettling. But should it be?
Sadly, this reaction is more the result of evolutionary propaganda than it is a shying away from scientific “proof” that evolution occurs, so therefore creation must not have. In reality, it has nothing to do with evolution. It was a scientific theory well before Charles Darwin leveraged it for his own origins model. It was even discussed by a creationist, Edward Blyth, roughly 20 years before Darwin published his Origin of Species.
