Does the humanistic evolutionary worldview have ANY answers to life? According to evolution, the universe was produced by an accident.
If this is so, all that we see around us today is a result of a big accident that caused a lot of smaller accidents that have continued to cause other accidents down to our time today when all around us is happenchance, no design, no purpose. It could have as easily been another way with equal meaninglessness. Happenchance has no meaning or purpose. C.S. Lewis wrote:
If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our thought processes are mere accidents—the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the materialists’ and astronomers’ as well as for anyone else’s [thought processes]. But if their thoughts—i.e., of Materialism and Astronomy—are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident would be able to give correct account of all the other accidents.1
The evolutionist rests his faith on the happenchance of long ago that is still producing happenchances around and in him; all that he sees, thinks, and feels.
Only the Christian worldview has real answers to the meaning and purpose of life. As with the evolutionist whose faith rests on something he cannot prove, so we Christians rest our faith on something we cannot prove. As with the evolutionist who begins with a theology of a universe that has no God, so we Christians begin with theology, “In the beginning God…”
You can know why you are. You is no accident! You were created by God. You can know the God who created you by coming to Jesus Christ who said, “If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father.” Jesus is the Way, the Truth, the Life…” Through Him you can know God the Father who created you.

We are laboring to preserve and promote the Christian worldview. Worldview begins with theology. Theology is foundational and necessary. We invite you to use and share the excellent resources on this website. We invite you to help us in this Kingdom venture with your finances.
Some helpful resources for Christian worldview:
The Essentials of a Christian World View
Biblical Inerrancy: Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy
