Why Theistic Evolution Is Not a Good Option

first_imgA book review from Creation Ministries International explains why evangelicals should not needlessly cave on evolution.Increasing numbers of evangelicals, fearing the scientific establishment’s confidence about evolution, feel they have to make peace with Darwin. A new book to that effect by Applegate and Stump, How I Changed My Mind About Evolution, was reviewed in the Journal of Creation (CMI) by Keaton Halley, and posted recently at Creation Ministries International’s website.How I Changed My Mind About Evolution is a regrettable, 200-page survey of theological abdication. Editors Applegate and Stump are both staff scientists at the Templeton-funded organization BioLogos, whose mission is to persuade people that microbes-to-man evolution is both true and compatible with Christianity (p. 16). This book is intended as a means toward that end, but it does not attempt to reach its goal by setting out a purely rational case that resolves the conflicts. Instead, it presents personal stories—twenty-five short testimonies from people who claim to have reconciled evolution and faith to their own satisfaction.While How I Changed My Mind will likely be persuasive to some, it ultimately fails to show that theistic evolution is an acceptable option for Bible believers. The book’s attempts at reconciliation are inadequate, and there are several severe problems for theistic evolution which the book’s contributors largely ignore.The arguments against Biblical creation in these testimonies take on some common themes that Halley addresses.“Bad arguments for young-earth creationism (YEC) turned me off”“All truth is God’s truth”“The scientific community operates in an open, objective, self-correcting manner”“We can’t take all of the Bible literally”“Genesis does not describe how God created”“God accommodated ancient Near Eastern (ANE) science”“YEC is a late theological innovation”“Conflict with evolution is primarily an American hang-up”“God is slow”“If you were convinced YEC was wrong, would you give up Jesus too?”These are common talking points from BioLogos. Keaton Halley continues by discussing 4 serious challenges that theistic evolutionists ignore. He warns against being swayed by testimonials, personally engaging though they may be, because they persuade with emotion instead of with God’s word.It is a serious concern that this book might persuade even more evangelicals to embrace evolution. Since these are well-crafted, engaging stories, it is easy to connect emotionally with the intelligent, and apparently genuine, people involved. Also, there are many kernels of truth sprinkled throughout. In the end, however, these personal testimonies are being used to teach error. Therefore, one should not read this book without also becoming familiar with the arguments for biblical creation. Once these testimonies are subjected to an informed cross-examination, the case for theistic evolution falls apart.We recommend this book review. It’s short enough to read now. It provides concise answers to simplistic slogans that are being pushed on evangelicals, making them think they can have their Jesus and Darwin, too. Bible believers need to be equipped against the TE’s arguments before they hear them, so that they are not caught off-guard by statements that sound reasonable on the surface, but amount to half-truths or worse. Our readers know full well how shaky the grounds for evolution really are. Don’t sell your birthright for a pot of message that, though tasty, contains poisonous ideas.Those who want to dig deeper into the subject of theistic evolution should consider a large recent book by that name: Theistic Evolution. We cannot endorse it without reservation, since it gives preference to old-earth interpretations, but it has very good sections on the scientific and theological problems with TE by a number of leading lights in the intelligent design movement and by some well-known Christian philosophers and theologians. Most of them would agree that TE is a very bad option for evangelicals. The scientific problems alone are enough to make Darwinism a complete non-starter. That’s an important step toward taking the Word of God seriously all the way from Genesis to Revelation, rather than relying on the flawed wisdom of people who weren’t there and don’t know everything.

A Guide to In-Camera Multiple-Exposure Photography with the Canon 5D Mark IV

first_imgTry Out Different CombinationsYou can also change the number of exposures taken (which defaults to 2 and goes up to 9), as well as whether or not to save your source images. Once you’ve made your selections, you can begin to experiment with different combinations. The additive multiple exposure effect is a good place to start. Try just combining two photos at first to see how they overlay and what that looks like. You can always delete images that don’t work, as they can take up a lot of space rather quickly.Multiple Exposure in VideoImage via Vitalii Vitleo.While photos are great in their own right, they’re also a great way to learn some principles of multiple-exposure imaging. Pay attention to what makes your compositions pop, and what crosslayers might make things look muddled or awkward. Once you’ve mastered multiple-exposure photography, you can try it with video.

For videographers who could use a multi-purpose camera like the 5D, it’s important to understand some of the functionalities that you have at your fingertips with a camera like this. One of the most intriguing new features to the Canon 5D Mark IV is the built-in multiple exposure photo settings.Let’s look at how this feature works, so you can get your Canon 5D Mark IV shooting at its full potential.Turn On Multiple ExposureThe first step will be the hardest for seasoned videographers. You’ll first have to turn your Canon 5D over from video mode to photo mode. You can find this toggle on the ring outside your record start/stop button on the back right of your camera. You’ll also need to change the dial on the top left to the “P” mode.Once you’re in photo mode, you can either look through your viewfinder or on the back display screen (click on the start/stop button to switch between the two). To enter the creative picture controls controls, click the “Creative Photo” button on the top left. You’ll recognize it by an icon that looks like a pen in a box. From this menu, you can change picture styles or enter multiple exposure or HDR mode. Scroll to the multiple exposure controls and press the set button.Choose Your SettingsFrom here you can enable multiple exposure. Click on the top line (which should default to “disable”). You can activate multiple exposure in one of two ways — On: Func/Ctrl, which is the more convenient mode where you can check your images after you shoot, or the On: ContShtng, which is for continuous shooting of multiple-exposure photos.Let’s focus on the On: Func/Ctrl, which is better for trying out the effect for the first time. If you scroll down one line, you can change the multiple exposure control methods marked “Multi-expos ctrl.” You’ll see four options, detailed below (via Canon’s Knowledge base):Additive: Each exposure is added to the image cumulatively. Based on the [No. of exposures], set a negative exposure compensation. Refer to the basic guide below to set a negative exposure compensation.Average: Based on the [number of exposures], negative exposure compensation is set automatically as you shoot multiple exposures. If you shoot multiple exposures of the same scene, the exposure of the subject’s background will be automatically controlled to obtain a standard exposure.Bright/Dark: The brightness (darkness) of the base image and the images to be added are compared at the same position, and then the bright part (dark part) will be left in the picture. Depending on the overlapping colors, the colors may be mixed depending on the brightness ratio (darkness ratio) of the compared images.last_img read more
