The creation tale in Genesis is very impressive, even in modern terms (Atheist Isaac Asimov).
Natural selection is absurdly inadequate to explain the existence of conscious, reflecting, equation solving and poetry writing minds. 
The scientific method has no power to resolve disputes about value or teleology. Moreover, when it is trying to describe events in the remote past, such as the origin of life, or complex matters like human behavior, science has to rely on philosophical presuppositions. 
Unguided evolution is just a theory. It is an ideology, and according to Darwinian Michael Ruse, it is a religion. It has never been and never will be a proven “fact.” Unguided evolution is a hoax, a philosophical swindle, and a wicked fallacy. This chimera has hoodwinked, cheated, and duped more people than any vain philosophy in history. Unguided evolution is false. The universe could not have started by an unguided big bang. If you watch a grenade explode, you will notice that the pieces do not move or revolve in mathematical alignments or orbits. The pieces go in different, non-ordered directions. An explosion results in chaos, not order. One needs an unguided big bang to start the process of evolution. Evolution is the champion delusion, hoax, and fallacy. This swindle of the ages has conquered many fields of science, but it is not long for this world or any other. It is a theory that self-destructs under just surface level examination. The technological advances in all fields of science have become the evolutionist’s foe, not his comrade. Blind chance acting on matter cannot explain the machine like complexity and efficiency of one cell. It cannot explain how the cell is programmed, and where the information that is in the DNA code came from.
A Code Requires a Code-giver
All living organisms have a DNA code. It is a code. A code requires information. Information requires a mind, and all living cells have information encoded in them. If I walked down the beach and in the sand I read: “I love George, now and forever,” I would know an intelligent source wrote that prose. Intelligence was needed to put the information on the sand, just as the DNA code requires an intelligence to encode it into every living cell. So it is blind faith that asserts that the information in a cell comes from blind chance. Chance producing life and information is one of the articles of faith within the evolutionary theory. Theists see design in nature, we say there is at least one designer; we see information, we know an intelligence put it there; we see machines running efficiently, and we say there was an intelligence that built that machine. This is what most would call: common sense. Most dictionaries define “stupid” as failing to utilize common sense. One, who asserts materialism or evolution in the face of all these “facts,” is not being intelligent. But the facts are not the thrust of our apologetics. The true and living God does live. It is impossible for anything else to be true without Him. We are not to trade a factual blow with a factual blow in our verbal exchange with the evolutionist. We should take the knife out of his hand, disarm him, and show him that the sword we hold, the Bible, is the precondition for the intelligibility of our world.
The conception of his (God’s) counsel as controlling all things in the universe is the only presupposition which can account for the uniformity of nature which the scientist needs. But the best and only possible proof for God is that his existence is required for the uniformity of nature and for the coherence of all things in the world.
Evolution of the species is a metaphysical claim dissimulated by those who believe they are composed of just an assembly of atoms. How could a mere assembly of physical atoms produce a metaphysical theory? This theory is religious, and it takes stone-blind faith to believe in it. Physical-only evolutionists are fundamentalists.
A Modern Fairy Tale
Lo, heaven and earth exist: they cry out that they have been created... self-evident is the voice with which these things speak. You therefore O Lord, you are beautiful, made these things. 
If you eliminate the idea of divine purpose, you have no other logical alternative than to believe that the universe we know has developed by accident. On this principle, all our thinking which traces events back to the intentions or purposes is invalidated. Ever since science began we have been wrong to ask “Why this?” And “Why that?” If “Why?” Seeks to uncover an intention, a purpose; for there is ultimately no intention, no purpose. 
People who hold to unguided evolution believe in a fairy tale. This little fairy tale began once upon a time, billions of years ago. One small primal germ fitted and engineered itself together. It liked what it saw in the mirror and “decided” to reproduce itself. From the primordial soup and this seminal spore all living organisms evolved. These archaic bacteria decided that they would like to move up the “ladder,” and grab life for all its gusto, and evolve into a mushroom. Then after a million years, the "it" found out that being a mushroom is not all that it is cracked up to be, being a spore is highly overrated. So it gathers all its resolve, and musters up all its determination, and with its own innate force, after millions and millions of years, it evolves into a tadpole. The tadpole gets bored, and marshals up enough resolve to morph into a fish. The fish decides, after a great period of time, because it gets sea sick, to develop into a reptile, so it can experience how sand feels between its toes. The fairy tale goes on to weave its tale, and the reptile evolves into a bird. Then the feathery creature develops a phobia of flying, so it grunts and groans, and after centuries and centuries, it develops into a mammal. The mammal evolves into an ape, and the ape decides it likes poetry, music, and football, so it decides to become a man. In this tall tale, instead of a princess kissing a frog and the frog becomes a prince, with evolution: a frog evolves into prince without even a kiss. It takes sightless faith to believe in such mythology. I know that in the beginning: God created the heavens and the earth. Without this as our assumed starting point, nothing makes sense, and we fall for delusions as silly as pixy-tales.
It is beyond difficult to believe that the universe produces everything from star dust to Da Vinchi, germs to Beethoven, tad poles to Shakespeare, and the primordial soup to Michael Jordan slam dunks. It is not just straining on credulity to believe that we are only turbocharged apes; it is impossible for this to be true. The problem with evolution is not just Spencer’s “unknowable mystery.” It is impossible to account for morality, reason, and mathematics when confined to the materialistic evolutionary worldview. Huxley ranted that we all came from a "murky pale of protoplasm." Not only is he stuck in the mire of mere assertion, his statement, as all others based on materialism, is self-stultifying and self-defeating. It is destroyed by “its own credentials.” If we are the result of a physical-only process of matter and motion, the person asserting evolution cannot justify the nonphysical logic he uses in forming his argument. If he is correct and there is nothing beyond the material realm, then his theory is the byproduct of a physical process alone and cannot be trusted. The material evolutionist cannot account for his use of reason. Thus employing reason to propagate the theory of evolution is self-refuting.
The universe is centered on neither the earth nor the sun. It is centered on God (Alfred Noyes).
