Evolution
#47
A few problems I see with pre-Fall "evolution" in any sense of the word:

When God created, He saw it was good, human sin caused the fall and the state of the world.

Romans 5:12 Wrote:Wherefore as by one man sin entered into this world, and by sin death; and so death passed upon all men, in whom all have sinned.

All our knowledge of biology is reliant on the reality of death. All living things can die.

The second issue is sexual reproduction. It is the robust design of living creatures (in appropriate environments) which allow genetic diversity, competition and sexual reproduction to make any sense of evolution possible.

So, pre-Fall evolution cannot involve death in the way we know it because there was no sin, and it cannot involve imperfection in God's creation.

I think it is rational to accept we cannot know the science of pre-Fall man at all. We have to accept we cannot know what it was like or what the rules were. We can see cause and effect now, but with the chaos in the system now, we cannot reconstruct perfection.

It is because of this I think "age" is meaningless once we get to pre-Fall times. For all we know, time did not exist in a way we could understand.

To speculate on the science of this pre-Fall times is to be like a child speculating on how a computer works. Scratch that...it is like the average person trying to explain how a computer works. One sometimes (often actually) has to say "I don't know and I can't find out at this time".
