Dave: [in a hick voice] Hey ya’ll evolutionists dizn’t ya hear dat Darwin recanted on his death bed? Why, he said evolution wuz false!
Jeff: NOT TRUE.
Dave: Christians use this argument, but it’s not a very wise line of reasoning.
Jeff: To put it simply, Darwin didn’t convert on his deathbed.
Dave: In fact, the evidence from his family indicates he was resolute all the way to his Earthly demise.
Jeff: But, let’s assume for a minute that he did recant! What does it mean?
Dave: Nothing, actually. He could’ve just been a worried old man trying to hedge his bets.
Jeff: It wouldn’t have done anything to promote or deny the scientific evidence for or against evolution.
Dave: It would have been a personal statement. That’s it. If we’re looking for scientific statements, let’s get in the science lab and out of the rumor mill.
Jeff: Christians, we have lots of great reasons to believe in Jesus who fulfilled prophecy and rose from the dead. There are powerful arguments for God’s existence!
Dave: So, let’s use those. Not illogical, and untrue, stories that seem to kinda go around and around in Christendom.
