|What Is Wrong With Theistic Evolution?|
This page is provided to answer a specific question, but don't get tied up in detail and forget where you are going. You get past the questions/attacks so you can proclaim the Gospel. It is the proclamation of the Gospel, not argumentation, that transforms minds. See Give Them the Gospel. If you have not read Stories Versus Truth, you may want to read that before reading this.
Almost all Evolutionists are theistic evolutionists. Those who actually believe in Darwinian Evolution are a small sliver of society. Most Theistic Evolutionists are Christians, as idiotic as that seems to be. In fact, the Atheists call these theistic evolutionists, "useful idiots." They are selling the most basic of all the doctrines of Atheism.
Theistic evolution is the notion that God used evolution to create everything or some things. It is an attempt to shoehorn "scientific" speculation into the Bible. I use the quotation marks on "scientific" because the thing that evolutionists are calling "science" is not science at all but it is speculation, convoluted rationalization, and loopy logic. Theistic evolution is illogical. It also conflicts with Scripture. On top of that, it is at odds with what can be observed using scientific methods. God forbids speculation. We know that the natural mind of man cannot receive truth. Trugh requires revelation. The human mind was never designed to work without the anointing that flows from the throne of God. We are designed to reason together with God. Our part in the process is a place of submission to His glory. Speculation is the arrogant act of making things up and claiming that these lies are real. That is an abomination to God. Lies are abomination.
"Among the theistic evolutionists, the issues are becoming clearer almost every day that passes. Proponents of theistic evolution are now engaged in the public rejection of biblical inerrancy - with some calling the affirmation of the Bible's inerrancy as an intellectual disaster and "intellectual cul-de-sac." Others now openly assert that we must forfeit belief in an historical Adam, an historical Fall, and a universal Flood. Thus, the vise of evolutionary theory is now revealing the fault lines of the current debate. There can be no question but that the authority of the Bible and the truthfulness of the Gospel are now clearly at stake. The New Testament clearly establishes the Gospel of Jesus Christ upon the foundation of the Bible's account of creation. If there was no historical Adam and no historical Fall, the Gospel is no longer understood in biblical terms. This is the new shape of the debate over evolution. We now face the undeniable truth that the most basic and fundamental questions of biblical authority and gospel integrity are at stake." http://www.albertmohler.com/2011/02/01/creation-vs-evolution-the-new-shape-of-the-debate/
Geology also shows creation and a worldwide catastrophic flood. Watch this video:

Depending on which definition you use, Natural Selection can be real. It works to eliminate severe mutations. If Evolutionists were not promoting a dogma, a more scientifically accurate term would be "natural elimination." Natural Selection can mean different things depending on the context in which it is used, though. Some of those contexts actually try to transform Natural Selection into molecules-to-man Evolution. They also try to confuse people into believing that small adaptations (calling this micro-evolution, which is a deceiving term.) add up to molecules-to-man Evolution. This is a deceptive conclusion that is actually scientifically impossible. At other times, Natural Selection is written about as if it were an intelligent all-powerful god that thinks things through and does them. But Natural Selection as a description of the way that severe mutations result in the death of the mutated life form is real. It can't add information and it appears that mutation never adds any information either. At least, no one has ever been able to observe information being added despite many tax dollars trying to do so. Evolution has a very real information problem.
(Read the latest science on the subject: Without Excuse by Werner Gitt, a description of the scientific Laws of Universal Information. See also: Information Theory Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Here is another interesting article.) More is constantly being learned about information and about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolutionists tend to hide in the weeds of the unknown with an argument from ignorance: "If you can't prove, by empirical science, that evolution is impossible, then it happened." By empirical science alone, we can only prove probabilities. The probabilities show the Big-Bang-Billions-of-Years-No-Flood-Molecules-to-Man story to be a bazaar hypothesis, a story that is so improbable that it should not be considered. However, empirical science is not a tool that can prove anything to be true or false absolutely. For absolute proof, we have revelation. (See Basic and Concise Guide to Practical, Useful Logic and Reasoning). God says that He created everything. He is the One Who enforces the laws of nature. He is the One Who will judge all of us in the end. We know that because we know Him presonally through the indwelling Presence of Jesus Christ and the moment-by-moment instruction of the Holy Spirit.
Most mutations aren't detrimental enough, however, for Natural Selection to operate. Small mutations can build up in a population over time and cause extinction. It is illegitimate to use Natural Selection to support Evolution. Natural Selection supports a young Earth and a Creator.
