Yes, ordered information (language) comes from an intelligent (ability to choose) originator. DNA is ordered information as well. Each and every biological species has a fixed blue print.
How do you study and learn about the laws of nature that GOD created without using your bible. Remember, GOD created nature for man to observe and learn first. So how do you observe nature and tell me what is right and wrong.
The Bible tells us, if we know what to look for and understand what we read.

Benjamin Wiker said that according to Darwin, "the European race, following the inevitable laws of natural selection, will emerge as the distinct species, human being, and all the transitional forms—such as the gorilla, chimpanzee, Negro, Australian aborigine and so on—will be extinct." (Wiker 2002:250).

Oh hey, "prof". What's the "scientific theory" of ID/Creationism again?

Thought so.

You can run away again now.

For instance, early in the voyage at Bahia in Brazil he defended and praised slavery, which I abominated, and told me that he had just visited a great slave-owner, who had called up many of his slaves and asked them whether they were happy, and whether they wished to be free, and all answered “No.” I then asked him, perhaps with a sneer, whether he thought that the answers of slaves in the presence of their master was worth anything. This made him excessively angry, and he said that as I doubted his word, we could not live any longer together."

I don't have a problem with light hearted conversation, but I am not jesting about the Bible.

Creationsit Claim CA005.1:

Charles Darwin was himself a racist, referring to native Africans and Australians, for example, as savages.

Response:

Virtually all Englishmen in Darwin's time viewed blacks as culturally and intellectually inferior to Europeans. Some men of that time (such as Louis Agassiz, a staunch creationist) went so far as to say they were a different species. Charles Darwin was a product of his times and no doubt viewed non-Europeans as inferior in ways, but he was far more liberal than most: He vehemently opposed slavery (Darwin 1913, especially chap. 21), and he contributed to missionary work to better the condition of the native Tierra del Fuegans. He treated people of all races with compassion.

The mention of "favoured races" in the subtitle of Origin of Species merely refers to variations within species which survive to leave more offspring. It does not imply racism.

The views of Darwin, or of any person, are irrelevant to the fact of evolution. Evolution is based on evidence, not on people's opinions.

that's kinda sad, because as has been proven to you time and time again, it is false book. cult deprogramming is difficult, but you should really try it. it is not a healthy mindset to deny the reality in front of you.

God created all things in heaven and in earth and we can read the truth about creation in the Holy scriptures. There are no creatures in the univese that God did not make. God has created angels and then he has created mankind and this is it.
