This is a typical bad Christian argument by an anti-evolutionist. It’s not so much about the theory of evolution, or its interaction with Christian theology, or the philosophy some people draw from it that bugs me. Instead, it’s more about the nonsensical nature of this argument.
Obviously we don’t have pictures of speciation, for example, but on the same note we don’t have pictures of Jesus’ empty tomb, his resurrection, his trial, or his crucifixion. We don’t even have pictures of Jesus himself! We don’t even know what he looks like. However, don’t hear what I am not saying. I am not saying that we do not have good, sufficient historical evidence to support the claims that Jesus really was a miracle worker, that he really died via Roman crucifixion, and that he was really raised by God from the dead. We have good historical evidence and arguments for that, but we don’t have photos.
Essentially, knowing this, a non-theistic evolutionist could accuse the Christian of holding to a double standard. Why does the non-theistic evolutionist have to provide photo evidence of macroevolution if the Christian can’t provide photo evidence of the very centre of his own faith: Jesus himself? That’s not playing fair, neither is it an attempt at impartiality. This should be noted beyond just this single example.
Throw this one into the Grinder!
