In response to the above video an evolutionist wrote: “Evolution by natural selection is *not* random chance.” The video itself does not mention the words “random chance” although it does talk about slow gradual processes being unable to justify evolution. This is true. Natural selection simply cannot be the power behind evolution.
Regarding natural selection and the proposed idea that it is the driving force behind evolution, let’s consider a few things.While it is true that natural selection is very much an observable truth, it must be pointed out that it is indeed random and not ordered & definite. Natural selection (which is really just gene reshuffling) generates varying “species” within any one kind of creature group (e.g. The “Dog Kind” - Poodles, Jack Russells, Dingos, Coyotes, etc). The genetic material in question is limited to the “creature group,” in this case the Dog Kind, and so what we see through natural selection is a vast myriad of animals produced that fit within this group. Of course, we see artificial selection as well, animals produced through the intervention of man, e.g. the Mule. Yet all the while we are seeing variation that results in different species that are bound within a creature group. This is why different species of dogs can still mate, however you will be hard pressed to find a dog mating with a cat.
Notice that the Bible says that God created creatures according to their kinds (Genesis 1:24). This means that they reproduced according to their kinds. Today this still happens. There are many animals in Africa, for example, that live in proximity and share the same environment, yet we see them reproducing according to their own kinds. The Bible is not a book of make-believe stories, and the world we see today certainly makes sense within a biblical/creationist worldview.
