A recent article appeared on the Biologos website titled "10 Misconceptions about Evolution." The author, Jim Stump, writes, "One of the difficulties people have with coming to accept the science of evolution is that they have absorbed incorrect or only partially correct information." He then goes on to list 10 supposed misconceptions people have about evolution in order to encourage them to accept evolution. But what this latest article on the BioLogos website really points out are the misconceptions the senior editor of Biologos has about biblical creation! Biologos is an organization that "invites the church and the world to see the harmony between science and biblical faith as we present an evolutionary understanding of God's creation." Basically, they promote evolution to Christians and churches and encourage Christians to add evolution and millions of years into God’s Word. Sadly, they are leading many Christians astray by encouraging them to trust man's opinion about the past over God’s trustworthy eyewitness account.
Evolution Claims We Evolved from Monkeys
The first and second misconceptions about evolution that Stump points out are two that we've written about before: "evolution claims that we evolved from monkeys" and "if we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys around?" Many well-meaning Christians have un-knowingly perpetrated these misconceptions by using these faulty arguments. These are arguments creationists definitely shouldn't use. Evolutionists don't believe humans evolved from monkeys. Rather, they think that humans evolved from an ape-like ancestor and that monkeys and apes are our cousins. Of course, this directly contradicts God's Word that teaches that humans were specially designed in God's image, separate from the animal kingdom (Genesis 1:26–27, 2:7, 2:21–22).
