Inorganic evolution

Inorganic evolution attempts to explain by chance processes the formation of the world and the universe before the appearance of living things.

Those who try to explain everything in terms of evolution espouse the materialist proposition that the universe has existed forever (that it was never created) and that it is a product of chance, with no plan, design or purpose. Evolutionists in the 19th century, with its primitive scientific level of achievement, actively supported this view, but its claims were invalidated in the 20th century.

The idea of an eternal universe was first to be abandoned. Information gathered since the 1920s has proven that the universe came into being from nothing at a particular point in time called the Big Bang. That is, the universe is not eternal, but was created from nothing. (See Big Bang Theory.)

In the first half of the 20th century, Georges Politzer became a great supporter of materialism and Marxism. In his book, Elementary Principles of Philosophy, he came out in favor of the model of an eternal universe, as opposed to one that was created:

 The universe was not a created object. If it were, then it would have to be created instantaneously by God and brought into existence from nothing. To admit creation, one has to admit, in the first place, the existence of a moment when the universe did not exist, and that something came out of nothingness. This is something to which science cannot accede.25

In supporting the idea of the eternal universe, he thought that science was on his side. But before long, science called Politzer’s bluff: To admit creation, one has to admit . . . that something came out of nothingness. In other words, the universe did have a beginning.
