The teaching that life spontaneously sprang from inanimate matter and that the higher life forms came about by gradual (or sudden) changes in lower organism; that this accounts for not only the varieties, but also for the different "kinds". No Creator exists, according to this theory. Some evolutionists believe God created some primitive forms, but evolution, as above described, brought about changes that led to the present-day higher forms; this denies special creation of the various "kinds".
"Kind": A family or group of living creatures or things that are interfertile among themselves, but not fertile with others outside their family. (That is, whose sex cells will unite to form, or begin to form, an offspring; but with those of another "kind" or family are absolutely incompatible and unable to unite.)
An Evolutionist's Description of the Theory
"The theory of evolution asserts that (1) the beings now living have descended from different beings which have lived in the past; (2) the discontinuous variation observed at our time level —the gaps now existing between clusters of forms—have arisen gradually, so that if we could assemble all the individuals which have ever inhabited the earth, a fairly continuous array of forms would emerge; (3) all these changes have arisen from causes which now continue to be in operation and which therefore can be studied experimentally." —Theodosius Dobzhansky, Genetics and the Origin of Species, p.7,8
Denies Great Central Principle of Bible—the Existence of Almighty God
Psalm 14:1 "The fool has said in his heart, there is no God."
Psalm 10:4 "The wicked, in the pride of his countenance, says, He will not require it. All his thoughts are, there is no God."
Romans 1:19-21 "What may be known about God is manifest among them, for God made it manifest to them. For His invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are understood by the things made, even His eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable; because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God nor did they thank Him, but they became empty-headed in their reasonings and their unintelligent heart became darkened."
Psalm 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork."
Psalm 8:3, 4 "When I consider thy heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained; what is man, that You are mindful of him? And the son of man, that You visit him?"

And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. And God created the great sea-monsters, and every living creature that moves, wherewith the waters swarmed, after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind. .,. And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their kind,... and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground after its kind."

Varieties the Result of Qualities Within Genetic Cells of Created Kind
"The number of distinct types (gene combinations) grows to more than a thousand when parents differ in 10 genes, to more than a million with 20, and to more than a billion with 30 gene differences. With 31 gene differences it becomes about equal to the total number of humans now living in the world, which is estimated as close to 2,200 millions. With still greater numbers of gene differences the numbers of possible gene combinations become immense. With about 250 genes the number of theoretically possible gene combinations is of the same order as that of the electrons and protons in the universe as estimated by some physicists. . .. How many genes there are in man is unknown, but it would seem reasonable to believe that man has at least as many as the vinegar-fly, Drosophila. To be sure, the number of genes is not precisely known even in that insect, which has been studied more than any other animal; but it is estimated that a Drosophila has several thousands, perhaps as many as ten thousand genes in each sex cell. . . . The variety which is characteristic of all human groups is due to gene mutation and to recombination."-L. C. Dunn and Th. Dobzhansky, Heredity, Race and Society, pp. 52, 53, 61.
Kinds of Plants and Trees Sprang from Directly Created Seed
Genesis 1:11, 12 "God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, the trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good."
Each Living Thing Created to Fit the Element in Which It Lives, Not Evolved to Fit

Harmony, Balance in Nature, Provisions for Life of All, the Work of Supreme Designer
Matthew 6:26-29 "Observe intently the birds of heaven, because they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses; still your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are? Who of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his life span? Also on the matter of clothing, why are you anxious? Take a lesson from the lilies of the field, how they are growing; they do not toil nor do they spin, but I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these."

Limited Life Span Intended for Lower Animals—No Dread of Death for Them
Job 39:13-17, 19, 22 (mar.) "The wings of the ostrich wave proudly; but are they the pinions and plumage of a stork? For she leaves her eggs on the earth, and warms them in the dust, and forgets that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may trample them. She deals hardly with her young ones, as if they were not hers: though her labor be in vain, she is without fear; because God has deprived her of wisdom, neither has He imparted to her understanding. Have you given the horse his might? ... He mocks at fear, and is not dismayed; neither turns he back from the sword."
Man the Highest Earthly Creation of God
Genesis 1:26-28 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
Man Far Superior to Beasts, Not Belated to Them; Anyone Lowering Self to Equality with Them or Mixing Seeds Abominable
Leviticus 18:23, 24 "And you shall not lie with any beast to defile yourself therewith; neither shall any woman stand before a beast, to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out from before you."
Leviticus 20:15, 16 "And if a man lies with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. And if a woman approaches unto any beast, and lies down thereto, you shall kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy: only he shall not go in unto the veil, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he has a blemish; that he profane not My sanctuaries: ...Either a bullock or a lamb that has anything superfluous or lacking in his parts, that you may offer for a freewill- offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted."

Faith Without Proof or Foundation Required for Evolution
"The evolution doctrine is not a creed to be accepted on faith, as are religious faiths or creeds. It appeals entirely to the logical faculties, not to the spiritual, and is not to be accepted until proved." (From H. H. Newman's list of "What Organic Evolution Is Not") —Evolution, Creation, and Science, by Frank Lewis Marsh.
"Professor T. L. More, University of Cincinnati: 'The more one studies paleontology, the more certain one becomes that evolution is based on faith alone; exactly the same sort of faith which it is necessary to have when one encounters the great mysteries of religion.'
"Professor Bateson stated: 'Though we must hold to our faith in the evolution of species there is little evidence as to how it came about, and no clear proof that the process is continuing in any considerable degree at the present time.' "
Hebrews 11:1 "Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld."
