Luc De Vos, who must be somewhere in his early 40s, is the singer of a Flemish rock band Gorki (or Gorky) since 15 years or so, and since a few years, he regularly writes a column in a free local magazine, Zone 09 (after the telephone zone number). His take on Creationism is quite refreshing, in my opinion, and as I don't think you'll ever find any other copy of what he wrote anywhere on internet, I've chosen to translate an excerpt of last week's column into English myself, and post it here.
He tends to write in a personal language that doesn't translate too well, but I've tried my best to keep the atmosphere of how he writes, intact.
The theories of Darwin are based on the principle of trial and error. For example, on the North Pole, there are only white rabbits. Somebody must have tried out brown rabbits there once, but they were too obvious in plain view, more than healthy, from a wolf's perspective. Therefore they had made an attempt (trial), which turned out to be a mistake (error). I'm posing it a bit simply here, but I'm merely reproducing what school and the media have tricked me into believing.
According to the creationists, people who believe in creation by a god, that principle of Darwin is just too simple to be true. They claim that for example an eye, to take an apparent organ, couldn't have come into existence by trial and error. The eye is put together so brilliantly, that it must have been developed somewhere in the lab of a brilliant thinker, a divine architect, a space being, a cosmic technical engineer.
My take on this is that these creationists with this position do degrade our dear friend God, because let's call him God now, for keeping things simple, down to the level of some kind of mad professor that, somewhere in a lab with all sorts of tubes and Bunsen burners and magic potions in bubbling little pots, somewhere in the corner of the universe, is doing some scientific experiments and, just for fun, casually invented the universe and the earth, created people too who now, with all of their misery, roam on the face of the earth. This is the God they worship, because he's so clever, and on top of that, he has unlimited powers.
These creationists really must have a low opinion of God. In my view, they see him as some kind of Merlyn the Wizard who plays puppet theatre with us, a magician really, who charms white rabbits out of his hat and not brown ones, because those are not so cute, perhaps?
