Natural Selection & the Fall
I've been reading about how Darwin's natural selection contradicts the notion of God creating a world that He would call "good". Why would any Creator fashion a world in which animals prey on others and disease and death reign? Because this world isn't the world God originally fashioned. The world as we now see it isn't what it was originally. The Fall of humankind turned a garden into a grave. We have no concept of an innocent, pre-fall world. Yet in spite of it all, even our fallen world is pretty amazing, as secular nature videos can attest. When Jesus returns, He will right every wrong and the New Earth will be most unlike the present corrupted planet in which we live.
