Darwin’s Puzzle (Part 1 of 2)


Darwin’s Puzzle (Part 1 of 2)

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we bring you a puzzle that kept Charles Darwin up at night!

How do you know that what you think you know is really true? Charles Darwin wondered just that, and the answer to his question sheds a lot of light on the origins debate today.

Since Darwin had no formal training in science, he made his case for evolution from philosophy, not from science. Philosophy and theology, after all, was the area in which he was trained. This background led him to ask a very important question. In Darwin’s own words, “…the horrid doubt always arises whether the convictions of man’s mind, which was developed from the mind of lower animals, are of any value or at all trustworthy. Would anyone trust in the convictions of a monkey’s mind, if there were any convictions in such a mind?”

We’ll pick this up next time.
