Refuting Evolution

 

Refuting Evolution


"The chance that higher life forms might have emerged through evolutionary processes is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junk yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the material therein."
Sir Fred Hoyle, highly respected British astronomer and mathematician (1915-2001)

"Science itself is steadily nailing the lid on atheism's coffin.”
Lee Strobel


Creation or evolution, a reason for us all being here or none,
We made in the image of a monkey or a creator called Christ the Son.
There either hope beyond and a day of reckoning or not, and so we choose,
And the gift of life, what we have, and this planet, wisely or unwisely use.


Because this article covers both the creation and evolution argument, it is therefore both secular and Christian.

Firstly, the theory of evolution is just that — a theory, and a very confused one, one that’s often wrongly taught as fact. The theory of evolution argues that “everything made itself.” Excuse my smile.

It’s certainly not logical, nor is it sound, to believe that we came out of nothing, some big bang, an amazing fusion of particles that miraculously threw themselves together all on their own, or that formed over time into this world as we know it, and human life.

On the other hand, it’s certainly logical, and perfectly sound, to believe that some Creator (mastermind) was responsible for the existence of the universe, our planet, and indeed ourselves.

Having put evolution to the test (via investigation) I have found it to be full of contradictions, distortions, (not to mention missing links, some supposedly found — total humbug), and that its history is riddled with lies, deceit, hoaxes, misinformation, plain nonsense, even arrogance, and the faulty assemblage of statements and fossils, some which are still openly and defiantly propagated despite having been proven (beyond a doubt) to be false. The theory of evolution can be likened to a boat full of holes. Holes that cannot be plugged.

I have discovered (via investigation) that geologically (and including the fossil records) that the evidence overwhelmingly supports a past catastrophic worldwide flood, a young earth, and intelligent design (that being, that a Creator had to be behind it all), all of which fits the biblical record to a T.
(As far as the Christian Bible goes, I have found it to be historically reliable, prophetically accurate, and that its predictions regarding earth’s final hours are right on track. I have also found this Bible to be inspired, life changing, encouraging, instructive, informative, reality based, and its wisdom unsurpassed. And it’s a book that has certainly stood the test of time).
It’s interesting how we’re told by evolutionists that strata took thousands to millions of years to develop, yet in 1980 at Mount St. Helens, over 30 feet of different strata was laid in three hours. It’s also very interesting how buried trees are seen crossing different rock strata that supposedly took those millions of years to develop. The Grand Canyon? Have you seen what a lot of water can do (and given the biblical record)? And so much more could be mentioned.

The theory of evolution automatically rules out personal accountability, deprives one of hope and purpose, and deprives one of a solid and directional foundation. If one doesn’t have a reason for being here, doesn’t have a moral compass, a code to live by, nor believes in a day of reckoning (or somewhat as foolish, believes once saved they’re always saved), there is literally nothing to hold them back from doing and unleashing the unthinkable and shameful. In other words, if we only lived for 70 years, and there was nothing beyond, who would worry about what they did in life? This alone makes the evolution theory untenable, and very dangerous. The evolution theory automatically leads to evil as it propagates (via its very nature) a dog eat dog, survival of the fittest mentality.

The evolution theory simply reduces us all to nothing more than sophisticated monkeys who’ve had a makeover. Why is it that a frog suddenly turning into a prince is called a fairytale, (the equivalent of a monkey suddenly becoming a human), yet a monkey turning into a human over untold years is called evolution? One would have thought that there would have been documented evidence of monkeys in various stages of metamorphosing. Imagine it. At what point would they be considered one of us? Seriously, who would honestly believe such? Funny how monkeys still abound. Didn’t it all happen millions of years ago? Ops! I’ve heard it said that evolution is a fairytale for grownups.

No big bang, nor some miraculous coming together of particles, nor evolutionary process, could account for the beauty, artistry, intricacy, and cleverness that we see in nature, the amazing migration of creatures, the miracle of birth, the complexity of the human body, the high information content of DNA (etc), nor account for the likes of love, compassion, mercy, forgiveness, tender human expressions, morals, standards, principles and so on. And nor are these latter things what beings who derived from nothing would come up with.

There are clearly two forces operating within the universe of which history and the biblical record attest to, (indeed our own experience). Once again, were the evolution theory correct, good would hardly play a part given the dog eat dog, survival of the fittest mentality associated with evolution. In other words, only one force would effectively exist, an evil (watch your back) one. Noble faculties could hardly derive from such a background.

By the way: Evidence clearly shows that mankind and dinosaurs existed at the same time.

The universe (and our own world) is far too ordered, finely tuned, perfectly balanced, and awesome, to have happened by chance.

As far as Christians go, they can’t have it both ways, foolishly coming up with another kind of evolutionary process that one might say bridges the gap (such as theistic evolution — effectively Christian Darwinism; a variation on a theme, or same song but different notes). A God who can instantly heal the sick, the blind, the diseased, grant the breath of life, and raise from the dead, hardly needs to work via any evolutionary process. Given that God can speak things into existence (if we believe Scripture), and that He can speak and things happen, the question could be asked: Why did God take as long as six days to create the earth? It’s intriguing (and surely telling) that there’s no astronomical or natural reason for the seven day weekly cycle — simply the biblical creation account. If each day supposedly represented a long period of time (as some say), why did God (pointing to His Commandments and the creation week) say to keep the seventh day as a Sabbath after His example (bearing in mind that His Commandments were known before Mount Sinai). Could it be that by keeping that particular day (as a memorial) from the creation of earth, that mankind would never forget who the Creator of earth was, nor fall for some humanistic evolutionary theory?
The evolutionary process not only contradicts God’s Word, but it slaps Him in the face and detracts from His power. Either God is who He is or He’s not, either God can do what He says or He can’t. And either His Word can be trusted or it can’t. If we can only believe some of the Bible, why believe the Bible at all? See the danger? And let’s not forget that the New Testament is built on the old. Plus, Christians know (don’t they?) that death and bloodshed came after man’s fall (as a result of sin), not before, (as evolution propagates).

It’s my personal belief that any evolution theory is a devilish substitute for God’s creation act; Satan’s attempt to take the spotlight off God (and subsequent glory); Satan’s attempt to confuse humanity and have them worshiping the creature rather than the Creator; Satan’s attempt to deprive humanity of hope (hence why atheism and evolution are bedfellows); Satan’s attempt to insult God and distort His image by claiming (via evolution) that we came from monkeys; Satan’s attempt to create chaos; and that the distortions we see in nature are the work of this same devil, who has been working ever since his fallout with God to wreck havoc via interfering with the natural process of things, via the manipulation of the likes of DNA, (hence weeds, thorns, fangs, poisonous plants and so on). After all, Satan’s ability is way beyond that of any earthly scientist, chemist, and he’s had thousands of years to tinker.

Above all that I’ve mentioned here, the most compelling argument for me in favour of a living loving Creator God is, that I have personally experienced this God (of the Christian Bible) via answered prayer and providential occurrences that can only have a supernatural explanation and origin — that being, that Someone out there (God, I believe) is responding and operating in such a way that cannot be put down to simply one’s imagination, one’s own making, nor to coincidence or plain delusion.

By the way: It’s my belief that we are witnessing a great (universal) controversy between good and evil that God is allowing to play out (instead of instantly snuffing it out in the first place) in order to help humanity (those saved, and other worlds watching) forever clearly see the result of rejecting what was right and best in the first place, thereby preventing another disaster, and showing how merciful and longsuffering a God He is — that He is not a dictator. Such the saved ones need to see, because a God who creates beings with freedom of choice instead of making them robots (voluntary love is the only love worth having) would hardly in a renewed environment (the coming renewed earth, Rev 21:1-4) change them into robots the second time round. That would be the ultimate contradiction! Yes, He will deal with Satan (an evil angel) and his followers very soon.

Finally, it’s argued that Charles Darwin was an evolutionary racist (drawing from his own words) and that the rise of eugenics was directly related to Darwin’s evolutionary racism. It can certainly be said that Hitler was an evolutionary racist. He was not only an enthusiastic supporter of Darwin’s theory but used evolution as justification for many of his wicked acts. It’s clear that Darwin’s evolutionary theory has provided encouragement for the likes of Marxism, Nazism and Fascism, and that his theory has fuelled the weakened influence of Christianity; widespread violence; the overturning of concepts of human decency and responsibility; and consequently the breakdown of society that we’re witnessing today.
When thoroughly researched, and viewed through the eyes of objectivity, one thing is certainly clear: Darwinism has not been to our advancement, but rather, has not only negatively shaped the course of history, but brought about serious damage to society as a whole. And given Darwin’s background, experiences, surrounding influences, and subsequent path, is it any wonder?

The evolution theory was never fully Charles. There were others proposing such, including his grandfather (Erasmus Darwin, who proposed a theory on evolution in the 1790s which Charles often heard being discussed and at some point obviously swallowed). It appears that Charles may’ve desired the credit for the theory of evolution (credit that he in time did receive) and that he indulged in a considerable degree of plagiarism. Thus, it’s argued that he has been credited with far more than he is due. Not that anyone deserves credit for such a flawed theory — one that offers no hope, provides no purpose, and strips humanity of any nobility. And one that even Darwin expressed serious concerns about himself.

And lets not forget that many scientists do in fact reject the theory of evolution and actually believe in creation (among them, past believers in evolution) — and the number is growing. Yes, scientists who’re not afraid to say that the emperor has no clothes, and sensible enough not to continue following the sheep (who’re fed the evolutionary nonsense from the moment they begin school).

As I said, the theory of evolution is nothing but a theory — one that I strongly refute.

By the way: It makes more sense to live a good life and find that there is no God than to live a bad life and find that there is.


2. 15 Facts Disproving Evolution

This worthwhile Christian article comes from www.Choice-s.com. Any comments by me are in red and bracketed.

1.
It is a law of nature that nothing reproduces anything greater than itself. If this is true of all species today, of which we have millions of examples, then it was true originally. The vast creations of matter and life had to come into existence by a superior power, not an inferior force. One thing is certain: intelligence could not have come from any number of molecules of unintelligence. The most that has ever been done or can possibly be done is to demonstrate the law of improvement of a species through breeding and cultivation. No new species has been or can be produced by such law. If left alone the plants and animals would degenerate, not improve themselves in any degree, as seen in point 7 below. Therefore we must conclude that no amount of unintelligent matter could produce intelligent beings—anything higher than itself. The intelligent and innumerable self-producing creatures—each with its own eternal and consistent traits, distinct flavors, and infinite combinations of chemicals—could never be the product of unintelligent matter. Each one of the millions of creatures that reproduce their own kind by fixed and eternal laws must be the work of an all-powerful and all-wise Creator.
2.
The Bible declares (10 times in Gen. 1) that everything created by God was given power to reproduce its own kind. No one thing could break this law and produce any other kind (Gen. 1: 20-28). 1,660 years later it had not been broken (Gen. 7:14). Now, after more than 6,000 years the law of reproduction is still unbroken. The sponge is still a sponge and has not become an oyster, octopus, turtle, frog, fish, or crab. None of these have ever reproduced anything except their own kind. No lowly earthworm has ever turned into a spider, scorpion, lizard, tortoise, snake, or crocodile. No bug, bird, or animal has ever changed from its own kind or reproduced another kind which was fertile and could produce a new kind. The crossing of an ass and a mare, for instance, will produce a mule which cannot reproduce itself. No monkey has ever produced a man and the missing link is still missing and always will be.
All this is quite remarkable in view of the fact that there are over 2,000,000 different species of plant and animal life. Each species proves the law of reproduction established by God—after his own kind. There are more than 1,000,000 species of insects. Species of beetles number 250,000; butterflies and moths 10,000; shellfish 80,000; snails 80,000; arachnids 60,000; flies 40,000; barnacles, crabs, lobsters, and shrimp 25,000; fish 20,000; bees 10,000; wasps 10,000; worms 9,000; ants 5,000; birds 1,200; and cockroaches 1,000. There are also many species of larger animals, and over 180,000 species of plants. Species of fungi number 100,000; algae 20,000; mosses 20,000; corals 5,000; and sponges 3,000, besides many other species of living things.
All species exist in great variety, and the so-called proofs of evolutionists are merely variations, or minor changes within the same species. Out of billions of living organisms and fossils there is no evidence of the slightest tendency to evolve out of the original kind to which each belongs. There is only evidence of development and normal growth; but these are not evolution. Improvement of a species and new varieties within the species are not evolution. The theory of evolution teaches transmutation a change in nature, substance, form, and alteration of essence by a slow and gradual mutation from one species to another, and from the lower to the higher. This has never been done, nor can it be done. In nature we find endless variety within each species, but no change from one species to another. Without a change of species there can be no evolution. God has made life so that it interbreeds in closely related variations; and when interbreeding is attempted between different kinds of species it is found that there is a gulf which cannot be crossed.
Life multiplies abundantly. One bacterium in 24 hours can produce 281.5 trillion descendants. A fly can lay 500 eggs in a season, each of which can develop into a fly capable of laying 500 eggs of its own. If all eggs hatched and survived the original fly would have enough descendants in 6 months to cover the earth with flies, to a depth of about 50 feet. A common potato bug is capable of producing 60,000 offspring in a season; a single sunfish lays 30,000,000 eggs a season; an oyster 100,000,000; a codfish 10,000,000; a toad 20,000; spiders have 2,000 babies in one cocoon; a loggerhead turtle lays 1,000 eggs at a time; and a pair of meadow mice could produce 1,000,000 offspring in a year. An elm tree produces 1,584,000,000 seeds and a barley seed 18,000 grains. But out of the billions of yearly reproductions of nature, not one monkey's tail has been produced by anything except a monkey. There is no proof of man in various stages from a molecule to a monkey, or from a monkey to a man!
3.
There can be no evolution without the power of reproduction in living things. Since reproduction is a prior condition to evolution, it cannot be a product of it. Hence, we face the logical necessity for the creation of life and its power of continued reproduction. The power of reproduction is not in the embryo, but only in the mature parent. An egg cannot produce an egg. It is also true that the egg is not improvable by itself. Improvement can come only in and through the mature form. Therefore, the parent-form of life must have been created in the beginning to have produced an egg from which offspring alone can come.
4.
Science has proven that dead matter cannot generate life; life can only come from preexisting life. When test tubes were filled with hay and other organic matter, when all life germs were completely destroyed, when the tube was hermetically sealed to exclude outer air, and while it was absolutely free of living germs, not one vestige of life appeared. The attempt to get the living out of the dead completely failed. The theory of spontaneous generation of evolutionists has had to be given up. It is now recognized that life can only come from life. All life is dependent upon other life: the lower upon the higher; the simple upon the complex; the powerless upon the powerful; the impersonal upon the personal; the unintelligent upon the intelligent; the nonexisting upon the existing; the natural upon the spiritual; the temporary upon the eternal. Nothing can come from nothing or be produced by nothing.
5.
The argument of evolution from embryology that embryos of different forms of life are somewhat alike so they must have come from a common ancestor—has utterly failed, as have the theories of natural selection, and the survival of the fittest. The similarity of embryos and their fast development to full growth are contrary to the principles of the evolutionary hypothesis. The chief foundation of evolution is that of a slow and tedious process over millions and millions of years. The evolution teachers have to argue this due to the fact that no single example of evolution from one species to another can be cited. Human and other embryos pass through various stages of growth very rapidly. In some cases growth is miraculously rapid. Thus, evolutionists are forced to believe in miracles, which they deny in other fields but sustain in their own, in the effort to prove their claims. It is now known that there are radical differences between the embryos of vertebrates (backboned animals) and invertebrates (animals without backbones), which would not be if all things had a common ancestor. Some similarity among embryos of all forms of life should be expected, since all start individually from a single life-germ or a combination of two.
If a botanist were asked the difference between an oak, a palm tree, and a lichen, he would declare that they are separated by the broadest line of classification. But if the germs of these plants were placed before him to choose one from the other, he could not do it. Under the most powerful microscope they would yield no clue. If analyzed by the chemist they would still keep their secret. The same is true of the life germ of various animals and man. No one can tell which is which. What makes the little speck grow in the millions of different creatures? What is there which the eye cannot see that determines which of the many creatures it shall be? Only a personal and infinite intelligent Being could make such unfailing laws of reproduction—after his kind.
6.
It is further argued that man and monkey are so similar that they must have come from a common ancestor. This is neither sound logic nor sound science. Resemblance proves nothing but resemblance. Similarity proves nothing but similarity. Resemblance and similarity run throughout all nature in things that have no connection with each other. Resemblance or similarity on some points is to be expected even though we accept creation by God. Such only magnifies the fact of an intelligent operator. This is true whether it is the Creator or a manufacturer in a factory. The wheel is the same in the wagon, car, locomotive, and plane. But such similarity does not prove that the wagon evolved into an automobile, then into a locomotive, and finally into a plane.
All animals and men have the same kind of faculties to breathe, eat food, and perform other bodily functions, but no such similarity proves close relationship. God made them thus so that all could exist alike in the same air and on similar foods. The dissimilarities between man and lower animals not only in body, but also in brain, spirit and soul faculties-prove that they are NOT vitally related. The differences between man and monkey are so wide that any single bodily part is sufficient in itself to prove whether it is a part of man or monkey.
Evolutionists themselves confirm this fact by their promptness in deciding whether a bone is from a monkey or a man. There are hundreds of differences between the bodies of men and apes, and thousands of mental, moral, spiritual, and habitual differences between them which prove evolution of man from apes or lower life impossible.
7.
Degeneration. The similarities between man and lower animals could be used to prove a process of degeneration from man more than a process of evolution to man. The Bible teaches that God made man before He made land animals—on day 6. Therefore, man came first and then the monkey (Gen. 2:7, 19-25). Darwin's argument that plants and animals have within themselves tendencies to vary of their own accord in all directions to an unlimited degree, has been disproved many times. Mendel's experiments prove conclusively that plants and animals, even under man's selective skill in breeding, do not tend to vary in all directions and to an unlimited degree; but that the variations are within strict limits and work according to fixed laws producing unvarying results. The theory of natural selection and of inheritance of acquired characters has failed of proof. The forms of vegetables, plants, and animals that man succeeds in improving by human selection and cultivation revert rapidly to type as soon as man's directing skill is removed. In all man's selection and cultivation he can work only within the limits of the species. No change into new species has been produced either by natural or artificial selection. The iron law of sterility stands guard at the far frontiers of the species and everything continues to reproduce after his kind.
There is a certain potency of development implanted in all things, but such potential powers are led out into actual development or improvement not through resident forces, as evolution teaches, but only through outside intervention and intelligent help. Man can develop the wild rose into the American Beauty, or the wild pony into the Kentucky thoroughbred, by selection, better environment, breeding, etc., but it is most significant that these improvements do not continue to increase, or even persist, when things are left to themselves. The rose reverts to a wild rose if left alone, and the horse begins to go back to its degenerated type once man's skill is omitted.
If one takes a flock of highly developed pigeons, with all their shades of color and variety of markings, and turns them loose in the forest to see if they will improve or degenerate, he will find in a few years that they have all returned to one type. Compelled by an unfailing natural law, all will revert to common colors instead of being a variety with beautiful markings. Improvements brought about by care and selection in breeding will be gone, proving the law of evolution a failure.
The same thing will happen to man. If he neglects himself he will revert to a worse and lower type of man—like those who have been discovered on desert islands or in jungles. If the mind is neglected it will degenerate into imbecility and ignorance. Solitary confinement has the power to unmake men's minds and leave them idiots. If the conscience is neglected it will run off into lawlessness and sin. The soul that is neglected will go into ruin and depravity.
Only 3 possibilities are before us: balance, improvement only to a certain degree, or degeneration. The Bible question is: How shall we escape if we neglect (Heb. 2: 1-4)? These 3 possibilities face every man. He has a desire to better himself and yet he is constantly beset with a gravitation to sin and the law of death working in his very being. We say that nature is full of life, but in reality it is full of death. Plant life and animal life are kept alive by a temporary endowment which gives power over the elements that cause death. Withdraw the elements of life and the true nature will be revealed. Life is merely the suspension of these destructive powers the sum total of the functions that resist death. Spiritual life is the same—the sum total of the functions that resist sin. If we neglect the use of these powers death will result. A man falling 500 ft. is as good as dead the first foot of the fall. So it is with the man who does not properly use the powers to live. One who continues to neglect life is dead. If we neglect, degeneration sets in. If we use the powers of life to resist sin, we live.
To use the argument that savages are more like monkeys than civilized men is no proof of evolution; it is proof of degeneration. Man fell from original sinlessness and the highest degree of intelligence to the present status. Adam had more intelligence the day he was created than all men together have now. He could name all things, and all men today who learn all their lives cannot yet do this (Gen. 2:19).
Degeneration explains the present uncivilized parts of the world, and the so-called cave men-the Peking man, the Heidelberg, the Neanderthal, the Cro-Magnon man and others. All problems between true science and the Bible can be solved by the facts of degeneration.
8.
Fossil remains have been referred to as one of the strongest proofs of evolution. But evolutionists themselves acknowledge that this proof is extremely fragmentary, limited, and obscure due to the fact of only a few fossil remains. Hence, they are forced to guess without proof. The missing links between man and monkey have never been found. The manufactured bones of prehistoric men are fakes. The Piltdown man, for example, was no man at all. The story is that in a gravel pit in Sussex, Eng., near Piltdown Common, 2 or 3 bits of a skull bone, a piece of jawbone, and a tooth were found by different persons in different places in different years. From these few scrapes scientists constructed the Piltdown man and named it the Dawn-man of the dateless past. From the same bones another later type was made by another team of scientists. Finally it was acknowledged that the jawbone and tooth did not belong to the skull, but were those of a chimpanzee. The Java-man was built in Java from a skull bone, leg bone, 2 molars, and plaster-of-Paris; the Heidelberg-man was built in Germany from a jawbone which was unquestionably human; the Peking-man of China was made from human skull, fragments found in a cave, in 1929; the Swanscombe-man of England was made from the back and one side of a woman's skull; the Fontechevade-man of France was made from a part of a skull; the first Neanderthal-man was made from a skull cap in Germany, which one great German pathologist declared to be the cranium of an idiot; the Australopithecus Africanus-man of Africa was made from an ape skull found with a number of other ape skulls and bones in Africa; and the Hesperopithecus Haroldcookii, the Nebraska-man, was made from a single pig tooth said to be 1 million years old. Pictures of these man-made specimens have been the so-called proof shown in school textbooks. Some educators in the name of science are passing such hoaxes upon innocent children!
9.
The old geological scheme to prove evolution has also been repudiated. Instead of the older rocks being found at the bottom and the younger rocks at the top, as would be the case if evolution were true, it is often the opposite. This kills the evolution-theory of natural building up of the strata. Sound science is quickly disproving this old geological scheme proposing that the earth is a gazillion years old (more than say, 10,000 years old – see point 14 below).
10.
The fact of a universal flood (Noah's), can easily explain the fossil remains being where they are. This accounts for fossil remains being found deep in the earth underneath many layers of solid rock. Such things never would have been there without the flood, what it caused, and judgment of God.
It is evident that many fossils came from a great catastrophe, being entombed in the strata instead of being slowly buried by sedimentation over millions of years. We read of whole schools of fish covering large fields which have been found with every indication of a violent and sudden death. They are not in a relaxed position but often with their head twisted around to their tails and every fin extended—the position a fish dies in when overtaken by an enemy or some catastrophe. Historians tell us that the earth has undergone one great and indescribable catastrophe. This happened at Noah's flood or from what it caused.
That the earth was divided in the days of Peleg is clear from Gen. 10:25. Such a shaking up of the entire earth, as well as the flood catastrophe of Noah's time, could have caused fossils to become deeply submerged.
The Arctic regions give clear evidence of a sudden calamity. In their extensive fields of fossilized and frozen mammoths, where multitudes of giant creatures have been found, some were discovered with their stomachs full of undigested food, and some with their mouths full as well. This shows that they were feeding quietly when the crisis came and were destroyed with suddenness. That the Arctic regions had tropical climate when these beasts were destroyed seems true, for they had tropical food in their mouths. Evidently they were frozen immediately when God withheld the sun from shining during Noah's flood [not sure what the author is really getting at here as witholding the sun would hardly cause an immediate effect], and/or what then happened as a result of this event (Gen. 1: 2; Isa. 14: 12-14; Jer. 4: 23-26; Ez. 28: 11-17; Ps. 104: 6-9; 2 Pet. 3: 5-7).
11.
Regarding Noah's flood, God commanded male and female of every species to be kept alive in the ark to replenish the earth after his kind when the flood was over (Gen. 6: 18-22; 7: 2-16). Had the evolutionists been right, this would have been unnecessary. Noah could have merely saved a couple of molecules, turned them loose after the flood, an eventually we could have the innumerable living things again in all their varieties!
12.
If evolution is responsible for all the vast creations in space and the endless varieties of species of life on the innumerable planets, then why is the law not working today? And why do we not have actual and unquestionable examples of the various stages of evolution from the lowest to the highest forms of life? If evolution ever worked, it should be working today so that every form or stage of development could be seen as proof that the lower forms of life will eventually be the higher in the ages to come. Is it not strange that the process has been at a standstill for the period man has been on earth to observe evolution at work? Is it not strange that man has not produced one example of change from one species to another, not even to the losing of the monkey tail and hair? And again, if people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
13.
There is evidence now that the whole world and all in it are degenerating and moving toward some climax or judgment and re-creation, instead of evolving upward into higher and better forms. In chemistry which is closest to the deeper facts and forces of inanimate matter and life, there is no evidence of a surge upward. Not only are the laws of chemical affinity static and unchangeable as to their operations, but there is a disintegrating tendency downward instead of upward that seems to characterize all matter. The tendency of atoms of high atomic weight to break up into other atoms of lower weight seems to be the universal tendency of all matter. Scientists declare that this is also true in the vegetable and animal kingdoms.
14.
The evolution theory is not only absurd—its so-called proofs are so contradictory that they cause increasing doubt. Tyndal says that the world began in a fire-mist that contracted as it became cold; but Spencer says it was a cold-cloud that became heated and contracted. The age of man is estimated anywhere from 550 million to 6 million years. The age of the earth is estimated anywhere from 10 billion to 10 million years. This proves nothing but the unreliability of data, which is used in the effort to prove diverse conclusions.
15.
The Bible in its entirety condemns the theories of both cosmic and organic evolution. It declares in no uncertain terms that God created all the material and moral creations, the animate and inanimate things, and that He is the first and last cause of all existing universes and the things therein. The Bible declares: God created the heavens and the earth (Gen. 1: 1; Ps. 8: 1-9; 19: 1-7; 102: 25-27; Isa. 45: 18); God created great whales and every living creature (Gen. 1: 20); God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them (Gen. 1: 26-28; 2: 7, 19-25; 5: 1-2; 9: 6); all things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made (Jn. 1: 3); God created all things by Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) (Eph. 3: 9; Col. 1: 15-18); the upholding of all things by the word of His power (Heb. 1: 3); Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created (Rev. 4: 11).
Jesus the Christ? He didn’t believe in evolution. Jesus said unto them, But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female (Mark 10:6). To argue that the Christian can accept evolution on the grounds that the Bible is not to be taken literally, is a surrender to the foes of God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, and all Christian teachings. The theory therefore is anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Bible, anti-Christian, and anti-intelligence.

3. Our Special Earth...


Has a geo-magnetic field that protects it from cosmic radiation. Without it, our planet would become like mercury—no life.
Has liquid water, essential to life. Liquid water has not been found on any other planet in the universe.
Is the correct size and mass for moderated gravity.
Is positioned in an area of the Milky Way Galaxy that is suitable for observation of the universe, while at the same time protecting us from hostile areas of the galaxy.
Earth’s habitable zone keeps us a safe distance from the Sun. Five percent closer, and temperatures would be much hotter. Slightly farther away, and we would freeze.
As opposed to a predominantly gas planet like Jupiter, or Saturn, we have a terrestrial planet with dry land, suitable for habitation.
We have a calculated atmosphere that allows us to breathe easily. Most planets have a combination of gasses toxic to humans.
We have the largest moon proportionally of all the other planets. It is very important for the stability of Earth’s axis, and the transportation effect of the tides.
 
Earth is incredibly special with far too many factors to overlook. If only one of those factors changed minutely, it would be potentially disastrous for life.

The Bible says that God formed the Earth to be inhabited, and it was to this planet that God sent His Son to save mankind, and offer us eternal life.

5. The Bible Says: God Made This World In Six Days


Clarifications (where not any of my own) have been drawn from various available sources.

How did this planet that we live on come about?


“God, who at various times and different ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds” (Heb 1:1,2, NKJV).

“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Heb 11:3, NKJV).

For by Him [God] all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities – all things were created through him and for him” (Col 1:16, ESV).

“ ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by Your will they were created and have their being’ ” (Rev 4:11, NIV).

Then God saw everything that he had made, and indeed it was very good…” (Gen 1:31, NKJV).

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1, NKJV). Note also John 1:1-3.


 Does Scripture make it clear that no other god or gods created this planet?

“Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens” (Jer 10:11, KJV).

And He [Christ] is before all things, and in Him all things hold together” (Col 1:17, RSV).


How did God in fact create our planet?

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all their host by the breath of his mouth” (Ps 33:6, RSV). Note also Ps 33:9; Heb 11:3.

How long did it take God to fashion our planet?

For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it” (Ex 20:11, RSV). Note also Gen chap 1; 2:4.

Clarification: In the Ten Commandments God bases the six working days and one day of rest on the same time span as that described in the creation account. Thus Ex 20:11 is a direct reference to God’s creation week in Genesis chapter 1. The seven-day weekly cycle has no other explanation for its existence than the biblical account of the seven-day creation sequence. The month can point to the motions of the moon for its period, the year is determined by the revolution of the earth around the sun but the week has no astronomical or natural source of origin. The early church fathers and Bible scholars all throughout history [up until the 1800’s] believed in a literal period of six 24 hour days for creation [creating], God resting on the seventh day – Saturday.
Creation is the origin of the Sabbath – a memorial of Creation. God established the seventh-day Sabbath so that we would have a weekly reminder that we are creatures of His making. He especially blessed this day and sanctified it so that we would never forget that, besides work, life should include communion with the Creator, rest and celebration of God’s marvelous creative works (Gen 2:2,3).
Some people point to the following text as proof that each day of creation was a thousand years:
"But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years,
and a thousand years like one day" (2 Peter 3:8, NASB).
However, the context here is, that God has always been and will always be. Therefore, time really means nothing to Him in the sense that when one lives eternally, a thousand years kind of slips by like a day. In eternal terms, a thousand years is nothing to God. Here, the apostle Peter is not setting up a prophetic yardstick for computing time periods, but rather, is rebuking the skeptical impatience of scoffers who're casting doubt on whether Christ will fulfill His promises connected with Earth's end. In other words, we cannot confine God or His ideas to our scale of days and years.


“God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day” (Gen 1:5, ESV).
 
Clarifica
tion: “And there was evening and there was morning, the first day” —  This is the same phrase used for each of the other five days and shows that there was a clearly established cycle of days and nights [ie periods of light and periods of darkness]. For each of the six days in which God was doing a creative work, we are told at the conclusion of the events, that the evening and the morning were the...day. This is used for emphasis, to emphasize the fact that these days were not long periods of time. The word evening implies a gradual approach of darkness after light. God created light on the first day and the phrase “evening” and “morning” shows there were alternating periods of light and darkness even though the sun was not created until the fourth day. Up till then there was obviously light from some stationary source. The sun was created to rule the day that already existed. The day stayed the same. It merely had a new light source. The word ‘day’ in Genesis cannot be symbolic as a word can never be used symbolically the first time it is used. A word can be used symbolically only when it first has a literal meaning.

“And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years’ ” (Gen 1:14, ESV).

Clarification: If the word “day” here is not a literal day, then the word “years” being used in the same verse would be meaningless. The days and years are fixed by the movement of the earth in relation to the sun, which in conjunction with that of the moon has provided men of all ages with the basis for calendars – lunar, solar, or a combination of both.

Check out the article titled Rythmn Of Life and how it may tie in with the seven day week. It's found in the purple box titled Apologetics which is in my secular section.

Is there any chance that God may have used an evolutionary process?

“Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death [and bloodshed] through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned” (Rom 5:12, ESV).

Clarification: Proof that evolution is not correct is found here in Rom 5:12 (and also 1 Cor 15:21,22). Evolution allows death and bloodshed before Adam’s sin but the Bible tells us that death only entered through Adam’s sin, his rebellion bringing death and corruption upon all mankind. Thus the death of animals and humans as seen in fossil records could only have occurred after Adam’s sin, Noah’s flood providing explanations. To believe that disease, decay and death existed before Adam is contrary to Scripture. A God who has to use ‘process,’ trial and error and many dead-ends and blind alleys over millions of years to reach His goal is not one whom one would expect to have the sort of power over natural laws that could raise the long-dead in a twinkling, create thousands of loaves and fishes out of a few and defy gravity to walk on water.

“Because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen” (Rom 1: 25, RSV).

Clarification: Creation is the foundation of true worship. Our worship of God is based on the fact that He is our creator and we are His creatures (Ps 95:6). The importance of this theme is indicated by its inclusion in the call to earth’s inhabitants just before Christ’s return, to worship the One “who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water” (Rev 14:7). Paul condemns those who have abandoned the worship of the Creator in favour of the creation itself. In consistent evolutionary thinking, it is ‘nature’ [the creation] which gets the glory for creation. The very existence of God is denied by evolution.

Is there any chance that humans may have evolved from monkeys?

Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in our image, according to our likeness [all the members of the Godhead were involved in Creation. The active agent, however was the Son of God, the pre-existing Christ]...’ ” (Gen 1:26, NKJV).

“For we are His workmanship…” (Eph 2:10, KJV).

“O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our maker!” (Ps 95:6, ESV).

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works…” (Ps 139:14, KJV).


Clarification: The human brain possesses qualities that have no parallel in the animal world. Man possesses the faculty of speech, and his creative communication by means of his vocal system is completely different from those of animals. Only man is fully bipedal. Only man is able to express emotions [e.g. joy, sadness, hope, laughter, shyness]. Some animals seem to have similar abilities, but they cannot be compared with human emotions. Man was created in the image of God. Only when Adam was created, did God use His hands (Gen 2:7). Only man can actually communicate with God. Only man has a free will and possesses the faculty of creative thought. Man’s flesh is different to that of animals (1 Cor 15:39). It is said only about man that he was not only created “by God,” but also “for Him” (Col 1:16). Man [as well as all the kinds of plants and animals] was created separately. This excludes the possibility of phylogenetic relationships.

What does Scripture have to say about those who believe the ‘evolutionary’ lie?

“For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Rom 1:20, ESV).


So how strongly can we rely on the biblical account of creation?

Every word of God proves true; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him [you can trust God’s word]” (Prov 30:5, RSV). Note also Rom 10:17.

Clarification: Nowhere in the Bible are there any indications that the creation account should be understood in any other way than as a factual report. God is the Creator of all things, and has revealed in Scripture the authentic account of His creative activity. The Creation narrative reveals that, rather than coming into existence because of chance evolution, everything was created with a purpose.

Is it true that Adam and Eve’s children married each other, and if so, why can brothers and sisters not do so today?

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose [the “sons of God” were the descendants of Seth and the “daughters of men” were the godless Cainites]” (Gen 6:1,2, KJV).

Clarification: The law forbidding marrying a sibling was not given until the time of Moses in 1500 BC (Lev 18-20).
Hereditary/Genetic disorders did not exist for the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve who were able to intermarry – these would have occurred later, due to the effects of the Fall. Cain was in the first generation of children ever born. He [as well as his brothers and sisters] would have received virtually no imperfect genes from Adam and Eve, since the effects of sin and the curse would have been minimal to start with. In that situation, brother and sister could have married. By the time of Moses [about 2,500 years later], degenerative mistakes would have accumulated to such an extent in the human race that it would have been necessary for God to bring in the laws forbidding brother-sister [and close relative] marriage. With plenty of people on the Earth by now there was no reason for close relations to have to marry.


How was this planet affected by sin?

“ ‘...cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you…’ ” (Gen 3:17,18, RSV).
 
Was there in fact a worldwide flood?

“By faith Noah, when warned about not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family…” (Heb 11:7, NIV).

“Who formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, during the building of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were saved through water” (1 Peter 3:20, RSV).

“ ‘And they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man’ ” (Matt 24:39,RSV).

“They deliberately ignore this fact, that by the word of God heavens existed long ago, and an earth formed out of water and by means of water, through which the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished” (2 Peter 3:5,6, RSV).

“He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved. You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled; at the sound of Your thunder they took to flight. The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that You appointed for them. You set a boundary that they may not pass, so that they might not again cover the earth” (Ps 104:5-9, ESV). Note also Gen 6:5.

 
The Bible says, “The Flood came.” Nature says, “The Flood was here.”



"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — His eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse” (Rom 1:20, NIV).




Made In Eden


If the likes of the CIA, FBI, SIS, FSB, (previously KJB), or Mossad got together, (being birds of a feather), and investigated the theory of evolution, (and its archaic institution), they wouldn’t find fossils of mass destruction with a natural evolutionary construction, but once again, thanks to the foibles of men, a breakdown in intelligence, aided by negligence, and dare I say it, skulduggery and interference.
And what they would also discover, (or should I say, uncover), should they head in a different direction, and do a more thorough inspection, is fossils of mass destruction with a creational construction, that were left via a worldwide flood, midst layers of rocks, soil and mud, not to be disturbed by evolutionists, but rather, creationists, who the truth would identify, and not some grownup fairytale buy.
Yes, make no bones about it, the theory of evolution can’t fit, hence the evolutionists’ scramble to assemble, whatever might resemble, something that their theory will benefit, and as for creation, suggest the opposite.
Hence those exhibits we see, that supposedly and ridiculously, prove we’re a higher form of monkey, and that we originally happened accidentally, via some big bang that produced an orang-utan, (eventually), or was it a chimpanzee, oh dear me, what absurdity.
No, those fossils of mass destruction, only have one construction, and it’s far from evolutionary, believe me, for we’re far too intelligent, and if we’re diligent, we too, will discover the facts, that a creational construction backs, and a worldwide flood, that buried fossils midst layers of rocks, soil and mud — phew!
It’s time we unmasked the biggest hoax in history, that’s been perpetrated against humanity, for there’s not a doubt in my mind, that an unbiased inspection will find, that we didn’t evolve over time, nor trees in some jungle climb, but rather, were creatively designed by a Mastermind, who having promptly created us, without any fuss, set us apart as humankind, and us in His image signed.
Yes, made in Eden, (sorry Mister Darwin).

Humanity


Everyone of us is linked by earth’s original parents, as original parents there had to be, for we couldn’t have come out of nothing, given that such is an impossibility, and plain nonsense, quite honestly, and surely obvious scientifically.
Thus, we’re one big family, whose parents spawned humanity — in other words, we’re brothers and sisters, we’re bonded genetically — each deserving of every chance and opportunity, ample love and care, any need, freedom and liberty.
Yes, we’re not the offspring of some monkey, for such is just a ridiculous theory, one that belongs in the realm of fantasy, and even there, insults ones intelligence greatly, for though such creatures are precious living things, our ancestors never aped their shrieks or swings, nor hung out in some exotic tree, like that Tarzan in some childish movie, who when it comes to humanity, presents a case that’s defamatory, strips everyone of us of dignity, leaves no reason for hope and possibility, and in the end, just pokes fun at accountability.
Therefore, such nonsense just deny, hold your head up high, and look all in the eye, for your worth’s inestimable, your abilities considerable and remarkable, your design and function exceptional and formidable, your individuality indispensable, and you’ve no reason to wonder why, no good reason to embrace a lie, for you’ve clearly been designed by an intelligent Mastermind, who set the stars in place, made this earth for the human race, and all for a reason, a purpose — yes, as part of a plan, one that includes each child, woman
and man.
So celebrate your birth, and do your best here on Earth, for what goes around comes around, and life’s too short for not doing what you ought, which is making the most of each day, midst toil, pursuit, rest or play, and resetting your sails amidst life’s gales, for such will ensure that you’ll endure, and happier be — a unique, special, and important member of humanity.
