A Higher Power moves apples

Darcy has long believed the assertion by many Christian evangelists (and Muslims) that the so-called theory of evolution is wrong. After all, this theory may perhaps explain the symptoms, but does not answer the prime question: why would evolution exist at all? Darcy is unimpressed by such second-rate antics. He is pleased to have read another article in a serious newspaper which has completely changed another part of his worldview (that based on Newton and Einstein), and is pleased to share part of the article here.

"Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

"Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down," said Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and physics...

Burdett added: "Gravity—which is taught to our children as a law—is founded on great gaps in understanding. The laws predict the mutual force between all bodies of mass, but they cannot explain that force. Isaac Newton himself said, 'I suspect that my theories may all depend upon a force for which philosophers have searched all of nature in vain.' Of course, he is alluding to a higher power." "

The complete article can be found at this reputable source.

Smart and funny. I'm not sure about the Christian theology, but I don't see any obstacle on the evolution theory in Islamic theology. On the other hand, we also have intelligent design defenders (maybe you already heard of Harun Yahya).

IMHO, Evolution is a fact and this is not a proof against the Creation.
