Faith itself is the evidence

The determination with which all evidence for creation is dismissed by evolutionists does eventually discourage one from continuing to try to produce it. Perhaps it's necessary to face the possibility that this is simply not the way a believer should go about it.

We apprehend God's truth by faith, not sight. Converts are also to be won by faith in God's revelation, not in extraneous evidence even if in support of that revelation. God occasionally supplies such evidence for us, such as in various archaeological finds, the Dead Sea Scrolls for instance, to buttress weak faith when the challenges are severe, but the call is always primarily to faith.

Faith is the evidence of things unseen, the substance of things hoped for, the royal road to knowledge unreachable through the five senses and forever unavailable to those who reject God.

Of course this mostly melancholy musing expresses my own discouragement right now with continuing to try to make the case for creation against evolution, but it also has the superior virtue of turning me to things unseen where the greatest blessings are to be found.
