Did life come into being through evolution?
My answer is categorically no, it did not. Evolution does not create DNA, it only modifies what is already there.
So what evidence is there that God created DNA and by this means created life?
Understanding genomes and how mutation modifies them give the main clues to answering this question. But in addition to this, for the Christian, there is proof in the fact of a male Messiah. This article gives the details of genetics that throw light on what is clearly evident: God can and did create at least one gene, a genetic code made of DNA.
This article, written in 2018, was the text I used for a talk given in a church parish on this subject.
The Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ was a unique event in history and nothing was the same again.
