IN REAL LIFE, IT’S SURVIVAL OF THE FITTED
Dr. James J. S. Johnson
Know ye that the LORD, He is God: it is He Who hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. (Psalm 100:3-4)
Darwinists cluck, with affection,
Darwin’s phrase, “natural selection”;
Science fiction’s sales pitch,
‘Tis a slick bait-and-switch;
It’s a fraud, by-passing detection.
Whene’er the real world we inspect,
We observe real cause and effect;
The “fittest” can’t survive
Till at first, they arrive;
Blind nature can never “select”.
If nature is deaf, dumb, and blind,
It won’t birth a lucky “design”;
Half-baked, mutants aren’t “fit”,
When they, gene-codes omit;
Such changes won’t make a new “kind”.
So whom have the Darwinists kidded?
And whom have such sophists outwitted?
Nature’s “favor” won’t wait
For a new, wannabe trait;
To survive, life must be God-fitted!

What’s the real “why” and “how” behind creation? Check out Revelation 4:11.
For some specific examples of “survival of the fitted”, see my creation science article “Survival of the Fitted: God’s Providential Programming”, ACTS & FACTS, 39(10):17-18 (October 2010), posted at https://www.icr.org/article/survival-fitted-gods-providential-programming — including Arctic Tern migrations, chicken egg hatching, mustelid embryology, Melipona bees pollinating vanilla bean flowers, etc.
In fact, the evolutionary phrase “natural selection” is a deceptively misleading bait-and-switch metaphor, as has been documented and clarified by Dr. Randy J. Guliuzza, “Darwin’s Sacred Imposter: The Illusion That Natural Selection Operates on Organisms”, ACTS & FACTS, 40(9):12-15 (September 2011), posted at https://www.icr.org/article/darwins-sacred-imposter-illusion-that/ .
See also, accord, an example of an evolutionist effectively admitting this awkward reality, saying: “Evolutionary biologists routinely speak of natural selection as if it were an agent” but then again “Many evolutionary biologists, in fact, assure us that the idea of a selecting agent is ‘only a metaphor’—even as they themselves succumb to the compelling force of the metaphor…And so we are to believe that natural selection, which ‘is not an agent, except metaphorically’, manages to design artifacts; and the organism…is not, after all, a creative or originating agent itself. Its [the organism’s] agency has been transferred to an abstraction [natural selection] whose causal agency or ‘force’ is, amid intellectual confusion, both denied and universally implied by biologists. Natural selection becomes rather like an occult Power of the pre-scientific age…” [ Quoting admissions by evolutionist Stephen L. Talbot, “Can Darwinian Evolutionary Theory Be Taken Seriously?” — posted on natureinstitute.org on May 17, 2016 accessed September 14, 2018 (emphasis in original), at http://natureinstitute.org/txt/st/org/comm/ar/2016/teleology_30_TMP.htm ]
The Rock Dove Blog is a humble attempt to honor God with a beginner blogsite, so your patience (hopefully) will be rewarded, in due time. At present the sole author on this blog is Dr. James J. S. Johnson (a/k/a JJSJ), a fan of rock doves (a/k/a “pigeons”) — as well as an appreciative worshiper of the God Who made them (and also the rest of creation, including us humans, for whose benefit the Lord Jesus Christ became mankind’s crucified-and-afterward-resurrected Kinsman-Redeemer. Addicted to reading since childhood, JJSJ has earned (over time) several academic degrees (including natural science degrees) and government-issued post-doc certifications. But the greatest truth is “Jesus loves me, this I know; for the Bible tells me so” — which is summarized in John 3:16.
