I’ve been meaning to write a blog for quite a while, but it’s been CRAZY tring to find time! I’m enjoying all my classes (especially Music Theory and Aural Skills), but there is one class that I don’t like, and that’s biology. I was looking forward to taking biology because I am interested in learning about life, but I hadn’t expected exactly what this class includes A LOT of–evolution. Since I went to a private, Christian school from kindergarten through 12th grade, I have never been taught evolution. I’ve learned about it, and I’m familiar with what it is, but I was never taught it as fact.
My biology professor LOVES evolution. He’s already brought it into the lectures along with his favorite saying–“It doesn’t matter what you believe. Your beliefs have NOTHING to do with the facts of science, and they don’t change the facts of science.” Yeah, we hear that about every day. Needless to say, I don’t like the professor very much. He rambles on and on and acts like he knows what he’s talking about while I sit there thinking, “You have NO idea what you’re talking about.”
It makes me sad that so many people believe that evolution is true. It’s ridiculous. My professor teaches it like it’s fact and they know FOR SURE that it’s true, when really they don’t. It reminds me of 2 Corinthians 4:4, which says, “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” Satan will take any little thing to turn people away from God, and I see him doing that here. So many people are taught evolution in elementary school. No wonder they believe it. They don’t know anything else. Only God is able to remove the blinders from their eyes so they can see His truth.
I don’t think anything I say to my professor will make him change his mind, but God can. Of course, I have to sit through his class all semester and learn evolution so I can do well on the tests. Even though I will probably be boiling in my seat hearing him teach these things, it will be good for me to learn the lies that are being taught. Hopefully I will learn how to counter evolution better as a result.
