Darwin – “The Gravest Objection” – David Rives

Charles Darwin asks an excellent question in his work ‘On the Origin of Species’: “Why (then) is not every geological formation and every stratum full of (such) intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory.”

He then attempts to defend his position over the next 23 pages, claiming “The explanation lies, as I believe, in the extreme imperfection of the geological record”.

I believe that the science behind modern geology is fatally flawed by the evolutionary theories of influential writers like James Hutton and Sir Charles Lyell.

Their hunger to learn was overshadowed by their desire to explain their findings in a natural, atheistic way. In pioneering their fields of study, they sparked a conformist group who would continue on the same path to this day.

Did they believe in God? Not enough to give consideration to Biblical history. The future of science will one day show: THAT was a grave mistake.
