already described how one of the fundamental principles that
make up life is "knowledge," and it is clear that this knowledge
proves the existence of an intelligent Creator. The theory
of evolution, which tries to account for life as being the
result of coincidences in a purely material world, and the
materialist philosophy it is based on, are quite helpless
in the face of this reality.
When we look at evolutionists' writings, we sometimes
see that this helplessness is openly admitted. One forthright
authority on this subject is the well-known French zoologist
Pierre-Paul Grassť. He is a materialist and an evolutionist,
although he sometimes openly admits the quandaries Darwinist
theory faces. According to Grassť, the most important truth
which invalidates the Darwinist account is the knowledge that
gives rise to life:
Any living being possesses
an enormous amount of "intelligence," very much more than
is necessary to build the most magnificent of cathedrals.
Today, this "intelligence" is called information, but it
is still the same thing. It is not programmed as in a computer,
but rather it is condensed on a molecular scale in the chromosomal
DNA or in that of every other organelle in each cell. This
"intelligence" is the sine qua non of life. Where does it
come from?... This is a problem that concerns both biologists
and philosophers, and, at present, science seems incapable
of solving it.387
The reason why Pierre-Paul Grassť says, "Science
seems incapable of solving it," is that he does not want any
nonmaterialist explanation to be thought of as "scientific."
However, science itself invalidates the hypotheses of materialist
philosophy, and proves the existence of a Creator. Grassť
and other materialist "scientists" either ignore this reality,
or else say, "Science does not explain this." They do this
because they are materialists first and scientists
second, and they continue to believe in materialism,
even if science demonstrates the exact opposite.
For this reason, in order to possess a correct
scientific attitude, one has to distinguish between science
and materialist philosophy.
