You can lay out all the fossils that have been collected and establish lineages that even a fool could work up. So the question is why, how does this happen? It’s not covered by Genesis. There’s no explanation for this change going back 500 million years in any book I’ve read from the lips of any God.
That’s a powerful proof for evolution but it is not from science. Our religion tells us God did not create the world so we supply our own myth that the species and the world arose spontaneously—that something came from nothing. It contradicts what we know from science but no matter, theology remains the queen of the sciences. And that theology, like the creation myth, is man-made:
If you tell me, well, people really need a faith ... I understand that. I see no reason why you shouldn’t go through your life thinking if you’re a good citizen, you’ll get a better future in the afterlife.
A good citizen? Compare Leakey’s man-made theology with God’s Word:
The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
They have all turned aside,
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.
No not one? Compared with evolutionary theology that sounds rather hopeless and impossible. But as Jesus Christ explained, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” He should know, He did the saving.
