Evolution - Poem by Alf Hutchison

What manner of man thinks this world was created
By an omnipotent, omniscient, all loving God?
What manner of man thinks this world not created?
By an omnipotent, omnipresent, all powerful God?

To think for one moment, we evolved from an Ape,
That a mouse was once, some elephantine shape,
And these in their turn, over millions of years,
Evolved from amoeba, brings me close to tears.

What is the correct order, first chickens or eggs?
Did they fly or they grope, on half evolved legs,
Was the first chicken born legless and blind?
Awaiting evolution to make up its mind.

Wise but ridiculous, foolish blind men,
You swallow their lies again and again.
Evolution is theory, not one scrap of fact,
No hard evidence, by this theory is backed.

Satan is conning men, I do presuppose,
For out of this theory, his religion arose,
He blinds humanity, to a true God creation,
Replacing God’s work with absurd speculation.

The proton, the atom, and our magnetic force;
Did they come into being as a matter of course?
God’s creation has precise order and symmetry,
Woven into all things; from here to infinity.

Evolutionists believe we all came by chance,
One legged people in a two legged dance,
Slow to develop in some primeval soup;
Darwinians have flown their proverbial coup! !

    I fully agree with yu Sir. Often I too used to discuss with friends, how ludicrous is Darwin's theory. At the same time I too feel that we are ruled more by Satan than God, when I see all the misery and evil around. You can see similar reflections in many of my poems.........like Mother's plaint, I'm God etc. I am very happy to have found you Sir.........your poetry is wonderful, thought provoking.

    'God’s creation has precise order and symmetry,
    Woven into all things; from here to infinity' - This is the truth. Einstein said that God would not play dice. You may go through my poem 'God'. God is a natural order behind this objective world and love, truth and ultimate knowledge within the subjective world. The theory of evolution is also an order of life. Actually the Hindu mythology speaks about 10 incarnations of god starting from fish to man which amply supports the theory of evolution. Let us not find fault with the theory.

    A word about creation. What is the definition of creation? When the first pulses of something falls within our level of perception, we call it creation. When the first sprouts of a plant are felt by our senses, we call it a creation but we forget that there was a seed already on growth beyond our level of perception. Creation is only a coinage as defined by our senses and nothing more than that. Life is continuous, life is under transformation beyond our level of perception. We call it creation for the one end of spectrum and death for the other end of spectrum. This is the limit of our experience but not the Awareness (god) behind this universe. It is a vast scenario. It is a continuous spectrum. It is cognition. What is integration in one direction is disintegration in the other. In other words, the sum total of directions is a point. The sum total of universal energy is zero. It is only a question of individual perception which defines the world to be so and so forth. So, all definitions are true from their stand point of view. Can we perceive how a crow or an eagle or an ant defines life? It ought to be different. So, let us not give undue importance to definitions. Awareness, perception - this is all the more important. We can see that as our perceptive levels differ, our definitions about life also differ.

    Once again a superbly written poem. As to the origin of our species, I feel to truth has yet to come, that is if we are meant to know. (Report)Reply
