Where Science and Faith Converge


  • Arts Own Big Bang Affirms Special Creation

    January 1, 1999

    If the naturalists and Darwinists were right about the evolution of humankind, we would expect both the quantity and quality of human artwork to increase gradually over time. New research, however, shows that the opposite is the case. Anthropologists have discovered what they call the “big bang” of artistic expression. Previous to about 40,000 years ago, art appears to have been both rare and “rough,” or crude.10 Such “art” (if it can really be called that) reflects the expressive ability we see in some advanced mammalian and avian species. After that date, art becomes suddenly ubiquitous and intricate, art that only humans—spiritual creatures—can produce.

    A recent letter to RTB asks a familiar question: “How do you explain events like natural disasters that cause mass destruction, millions of deaths, and indiscernible suffering throughout the entire history of the world?” In other words, how does a Christian account for “natural evil” (the awful effects of natural calamity) in a universe created by the all-loving, all-powerful God of the Bible?
