Evolution, as it is defined these days, merely concerns itself with Change over Time, not the origin of life.
But, change from what? There has to be life existing in the first place for it to Change over Time. (See my page: The Origin of Life: How did life begin? DNA could not have happened by chance)
Logically, evolution cannot be an alternative for creation (God creating life) until evolution concerns itself with the Origin of Life.
So, why doesn’t evolution concern itself with the origin of life? There is a very good reason: There is no proof for the commonly held belief that life started as a result of time and chance.
There is not any proof that life began without God’s help. There is speculation, conjecture and imagination, but no proof.
I will be told that many Christians believe in evolution. The church unfortunately has compromised and accepted, for the most part, what evolutionists teach as fact, and that is very sad. (Also see: Using the Dog-Kind of Animal to Disprove Evolution)
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
