Christ Our Creator - in whom all things exist - Part 2
Disproving Evolution

July 2017

This month we will continue examining the theory called “Atheistic Evolution or Darwinism.”  A theory that eliminates the idea of any form of supernatural entity responsible for what we see all around us.  This theory is called “Atheistic Evolution or Darwinism.” 

As we take a look at “Atheistic Evolution or Darwinism” we are defining it as the “Ameba to man” theory which Evolutionary scientists believe began with the appearance of the sun, moon and stars about four and a half billion years ago.  They have no reason or idea of how the sun, moon and stars got there except to state that somehow the universe exploded “Big Bang Theory” but they cannot explain how or why; but they teach it as fact and they claim it happened 4.5 billion years ago.  These Evolutionary scientists continue by saying that for about two billion years the earth was bombarded by meteorites destroying all forms of life until one day life again started and somehow became strong enough to survive and thrive. 

They believe that life started approximately two billion years ago with a single cell unit called an “Ameba.”   This single cell life unit was a fluke of nature that came from some prehistoric liquid that covered the earth and was struck by lightning over and over or so they hypothesize.  This Ameba eventually developed, how again they do not know, but they supposed it was by the theory of Natural Selection  (only the strong survive) into invertebrates, then into vertebrates, then amphibians, which developed into reptiles, then birds, then mammals and finally humans;  in other words to put it sarcastically and crass  “from the goo to the zoo to you!”  This is the basic theory of Evolution as taught in our institutions of learning.

Charles Robert Darwin (February 12, 1809 – April 19, 1882) was an English naturalist.  Who brought forth the theory that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestry, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called “Natural Selection.”  “Natural Selection” is the nonrandom process by which different biological traits become either more or less common in a population. “Natural Selection” is the key mechanism of evolution.

Charles Robert Darwin although credited with this theory just like Christopher Columbus was credited with the discovery of the Americas in 1492 AD, was not the first to bring forth this discovery.  Evolution-like ideas had existed since the times of the Greeks, and had been in and out of favor in the periods between ancient Greece and Victorian England. By the time of Darwin's idea of evolution - called "descent with modification” it was not especially controversial, and several other evolutionary theories had already been proposed. Charles Darwin published his theory with compelling evidence for evolution in his 1859 book on the “Origin of Species” and he may stand at the beginning of a modern tradition, but his theory is also the final culmination of an ancient speculation. 

Some examples of pre-Darwinism evolution or the theory of Natural Selection are;

  • Jean-Baptiste Lamarck's (1744-1829) theory of evolution was a good try for his time, but has now been discredited by experimental evidence and the much more plausible mechanism of modification proposed by Darwin.  Lamarck saw species as not being fixed and immutable, but rather in a constantly changing state. He presented a multitude of different theories that he believed combined to explain descent with modification of these changing species.

  • Thomas Malthus' (1766-1834) theory of population growth was in the end what inspired Darwin to develop the theory of Natural Selection. According to Malthus, populations produce many more offspring than can possibly survive on the limited resources generally available. According to Malthus, poverty, famine, and disease were natural outcomes that resulted from overpopulation.

  • Charles Darwin's grandfather Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802) was also a distinguished naturalist with his own intriguing ideas about evolution. While he never thought of Natural Selection, he did argue that all life could a have a single common ancestor, though he struggled with the concepts of a mechanism for this descent. He also discussed the effects of competition and sexual selection on possible changes in species. Like Lamarck, Erasmus Darwin subscribed to a theory stating that the use or disuse of parts could in itself make them grow or shrink, and that unconscious striving by the organism was responsible for adaptation.

  • The German philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) developed a concept of descent that is relatively close to modern thinking. Based on similarities between organisms, Kant speculated that they may have come from a single ancestral source. In a thoroughly modern speculation, he speculated that "an Orang-outang or a chimpanzee may have developed the organs which serve for walking, grasping objects, and speaking-in short, that lie may evolve the structure of man, with an organ for the use of reason, which shall gradually develop itself by social culture" (quoted in Evolution from The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy).

Below is a copy of the original caricature of the Venerable Orang-outang.  It is a caricature of Charles Darwin as an ape published in The Hornet, a satirical magazine March 22, 1871.  This picture came with a subtitle which read, a ‘Contribution to Unnatural History.’ This picture and subtitle demonstrates just how utterly ridiculous Darwin’s theory of “Atheistic Evolution” was perceived by scientists and the general populous in 1871.  Today however in our calculated effort to eliminate God from our society we have wholly accepted this as factual truth. 

Before I continue showing the impossibilities that Evolution is factual, I would like to take this moment to say that Evolution is a satanically inspired, dangerous and deadly religion; yes, a religion.  For it takes faith to believe it.  More faith in fact than it takes to believe in a Omnipotent Creator.  This religion has been taught in learning institutions for generations and our children are the ones that are reaping the evils of it.  They have been taught to believe that they are nothing more than animals with animal instincts.  With no soul, no hope of a future, so whatever you hope to gain must be gained here while you are alive and the way to do it is relative; relative to your personal moral code.      

Survival of the fittest and natural selection are the only rules that govern our universe and therefore they who believe this are a driven group that cares nothing for any other group.  No wonder our world has become “dog eat dog” because we are taught that we have descended from them.  Simply put, at the very least it stamps Genesis One with a huge question mark and at the very most throws God out the door of our thinking and eliminates any system of moral standard other than what we determine it to be.  I believe this is how we arrived at the place we are today in our culture.  Psalm 11:2-3 “For look! The wicked bend their bow; they make ready their arrow on the string that they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart. (3) If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” 

The basic premise of this verse is that when the basic moral foundation of any culture is destroyed everything else unravels into chaos.  When God is removed from our government and our families what is left is what we are seeing in America today; morality disappearing, corruption running rampant, a government of atheistic beliefs and practice, worship of false Gods, hatred, division, immorality, etc. 

I believe that the real root of this problem comes from the issue of Evolution verses the God who is the creator of all things.  Evolution and the false twisted science that tries to prove it has given people who decided not to believe in a creator a perfect reason not to believe.  Therefore, Evolution becomes a safe and secure refuge for anyone who refuses to believe in a Creator God.  For once mankind begins to buy into Evolution all the rules of morality and truth change for there are no absolute standards, no absolute values and therefore everything is relative to the way we look at it, and as a result we become accountable to no one except ourselves; especially not a God who we believe does not exist.  Michael Denton PhD a British-Australian author and biochemist put it this way in his book “Evolution a Theory in Crisis;” “The idea of evolution has come to touch every aspect of modern thought, and no other theory in recent times has done so much to mold the way we view ourselves and our relationship with the world around us.”

Cornell University professor William B. Provine one of the leading historians of Science, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, who is one of the world’s leading experts on how evolution affects society said in an article for Isis in 1999; “modern science directly applies that the world is organized strictly in accordance with mechanical principles.  Result, there are no purposeful principles whatsoever in nature.  There are no gods; no designing forces.  Modern science directly implies that there are no inherent moral or ethical laws.  Human beings are no more than complex machines; the individual human being becomes an ethical person by means of two primary mechanisms, heredity and environmental factors.  We must conclude therefore that when we die death is the end of us.  Free will as it is traditionally conceived, the freedom to make unpredictable choices and alternatives simply does not exist.”  Putting it simply; if you believe in the science of Evolution as the basic foundation of life, than you must make the direct correlation that there is no God, which means that there is no authority, no judgment, no sense, no morals or values and no one to answer to.  We are no more than complex machines influenced by environmental factors so we have no ability to choose who and what we become and therefore we are not responsible for what we do.  Finally, he said there is nothing past death for it is the end.  Therefore, we should grab for all we can no matter how we can and then just sit and wait for the end.  This senseless and valueless outlook on life is the direct result of buying into this satanically inspired Evolution theory.  Is there any wonder why our society has fallen to the place where it is today?

It also stands to reason that the opposite of this valueless and worthless system is a loving, just, moral, omniscience, omnipotent Creator God.  Who has set upon us a system of checks and balances designed to produce a society based on His characteristics.  A system if followed will produce balance, blessings, and brotherhood.

Now let us begin to look at the “Theory of Evolution.”  There are so many falsehoods, holes, impossibilities and outright errors in this theory that after the first few dozen it would get redundant and useless.  What I will do however, is choose some credible scientific evidences that will conclusively eliminate any truthful evidence to the Evolution myth.  So much evidence that it would be almost impossible for any honest truth seeking individual to come to any other conclusion than, that Evolution is not the way our universe came into existence; which implies there must be a Supreme Being behind its creation.  We will then set out to show Jesus as the creator and sustainer of all things and nothing exists but through Him (Ref. Revelation 4:11).

Let us first look at just how old Geochronologists say that our universe is.  As stated earlier evolutionary scientists believe it began with the appearance of the sun, moon and stars about four and a half billion years ago.  They have no reason or idea of how the sun, moon and stars got there but they say it happened 4.5 billion years ago.  Then for about two billion years the earth was bombarded by meteorites destroying all life until one day life started and became strong enough to survive.  Life started approximately two billion years ago with a single cell unit called an “Ameba.”  This has been the main consensus in the scientific community for about 50 years now as to when this all began.  This assumption is based on the fact that it would take that long for Evolution to occur. 

Now in all fairness we must point out that Christians have no clue as to when the earth was created either.  Let us look at Genesis 1:1-2 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (2) The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Notice there is no mention of when the earth came into existence.  There is neither any reference in the Bible to when the Earth was created.  But whether it was 6,000 years ago or 4.2 billion years ago the evidence still points to a omnipotent creator.. 

Now the Bible clearly states that all things were created in a period of seven days. Now the conclusion to this problem is either the Creationists or Evolutionists has to be wrong about the approximate age of the earth; so two theories have been developed to explain the problem of the Genesis account regarding the age of the earth.  One is the “Day age Theory” and the other is the “Gap Theory.”

The “Day Age Theory” simply states that the days in Genesis One were not actually 24 hour periods of time but very huge geologic time spans perhaps hundreds, thousands of even millions of years.  The hope of this theory is that it will bring the Genesis record in line with Evolution or at least the supposed geologic age of the earth in harmony with Genesis One. 

There are several major problems with the “Day Age Theory.”  First is the definition of the term “Day.”  In the Hebrew Old Testament and in the Greek New Testament the word “day” literally means “day,” not geologic periods of time.  The Hebrew word “yom” the same word as found in Exodus 20:11 is defined in Genesis One.  God specifically defined the time span which equals one day.  It should be noted at this point that the word “yom” without exception never means “a period of time.”  It normally means either a day (in the sense of a twenty-four hours), or else the daylight portion of the twenty-four hours (as in day being distinct from the “night”).  It may even be occasionally used in the sense of an indefinite time (e.g. “in the time of the judges), but never as a definite period of time with a specific beginning and ending.

Now notice Genesis 1:5 “God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day (“yom”).”  This definition is not an arbitrary one it set in stone; God declared a day as the period of time between evening and morning. 

When light appeared, “God divided the light from the darkness.” Darkness was not removed completely but only separated from the light. Furthermore, “God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.”  God carefully defined His terms! The very first time He used the word “day” (yom) He defined it as the “light,” to distinguish it from the “darkness” He called “night.”

Having separated the day and night, God had completed His first day’s work. “The evening and the morning were the first day” (Ref. Genesis 1:5, 8, 13 etc.).  This same formula is used at the conclusion of each of the six days; so it is obvious that the duration of each of the days, including the first, was the same.  Furthermore, the “day” was the “light” time, when God did His work; the darkness was the “night” time when God did no work, nothing new took place between the “evening” and “morning” of each day. The formula may be rendered literally: “And there was evening, then morning, day one,” and so on. It is clear that, beginning with the first day and continuing thereafter, there was established a recurring succession of days and nights, periods of light followed by periods of darkness.  Today we know these succession of days and nights, periods of light followed by periods of darkness as being equal to the time that it takes the Earth to rotate on its axis which is 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4 seconds. 

Let me pose a question to the reader.  “Suppose the writer of Genesis wanted to teach his readers that all things were created and made in six literal days, then what words would he use to best convey this thought?  The reader would have to answer that the writer would have used the actual words found in Genesis One.  If he wished to convey the idea of long geological ages, however, he could have surely done it far clearer and effectively using other words than the words he selected.  It was clearly his intent to teach creation in six literal days, don’t you agree? 

Therefore, the only proper way to interpret Genesis one is not to “interpret” it at all.  That is, we accept the fact that it was meant to say exactly what it says.  The “days” are literal days and the events described happened in just the way described.  “For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day” (Exodus 20:11).

A second major problem is that if a day meant extremely long geologic periods of time, then God created the world out of order.  Here is what I mean.  God created plant life on the third day (Ref. Genesis 1:12-13.  The sun, moon and stars were created on the fourth day (Ref. Genesis 1:14-18).  These were created in order to give light to the earth (Ref. Genesis 1:17).  This causes a severe problem to the proponents of Evolution because what does vegetation need to survive?  That’s right; sunlight!  If a day was defined as an extremely long geologic period of time vegetation could not and would not survive.  The “Day Age Theory does not solve the problems Atheistic Evolutionist have with the creation story of Genesis One it just adds more problems and questions to an already error filled theory.

Third; the geological ages are predicated according to the fossil record.  Fossils by their very nature speak unequivocally of the reign of suffering, disease, violence and death occurring in the world from the time of the beginning.  This however is contrary to the Biblical record which states that sin and death came into the world through Adam and not before (Ref. Romans 5:12-14, 1st Corinthians 15:21-22).  If man brought sin and death to the world and man was created several million years after the first organism why does death and its resulting evidence go back to the beginning?  Answer: God’s word is wrong or man is wrong!

Now let us take a look at the second theory that has been developed regarding the problem of the Genesis account and the age of the earth.  It is called “The Gap Theory, which is also known as the “Ruin to Reconstruction Theory or the Pre-Adamic Cataclysm Theory.”  The development of “The Gap Theory” is to harmonize the Genesis account with accepted system of geological ages. 

Genesis 1:1 clearly and precisely states that God created the heavens and the earth.  Then in verse two if you look carefully the earth “was” without form or void.  The word “was” in verse two in the Hebrew, is “hayetha” which is translated “being.”  This verb is the regular Hebrew verb which means “being” not the Hebrew verb denoting a “change of state” which is the Hebrew verb “haphak.”  Hayetha” is simply translated “was” in 98 percent of the cases throughout the scriptures.  The argument of the “Gap Theory” is that the earth “became” formless and empty; implying that between Genesis 1:1 and 2 is a massive time gap of billions of years.  Contained within this massive time gap are all the problems Christians cannot explain in regard to things like the dinosaurs, cavemen, the geologic differences in time between Creation and Evolution.

The “Gap Theory” does not support the “Geological Age’s Theory” as it alleges to do however, since the system of geological ages is based completely on the belief that physical processes we have observed throughout history have always functioned in the past the same as they do now.  This belief is called the “Theory of Uniformity,” which is widely held as true by all geochronologists and evolutionists.  But this theory can only be true once you rule out any worldwide cataclysm such as is required by the “Gap Theory.”  As a result, no geologist who accepts the “Geological Age’s Theory” can possibly accept the “Gap Theory,” or any other theory requiring a global cataclysm.  The “Gap Theory” is thus self-defeating scientifically.  It attempts to support the geological age system by suggesting a worldwide cataclysm, but a worldwide cataclysm denies the premise on which the geological age system is based, and would obliterate all so-called evidence of that system.

The “Geological Age System” depends on the supposed evolutionary sequence of fossils preserved in the sedimentary rocks of the earth’s crust.  A cataclysm on the scale of a worldwide flood which left the earth flooded with water and darkness covering the face of the deep could have been nothing less than a global explosion.  This type of global explosion would blow billions of tons of debris into the sky which would blot out the sun’s rays, and all the rest of the solid earth down into the ocean. Such an explosion would have obliterated the sedimentary crust and all its fossils, and thus would have left no evidence of the “geological ages” which the “Gap Theory” is attempting to accommodate.

By accepting the “Geological Age Theory,” the Bible scholar is thereby accepting the fossil record which identifies these “ages.” Fossils, however, are the remains of dead things! They speak clearly of a world in which violence, suffering, disease, and death were universal realities. They speak of a world much like our own.  But that world, the “world that then was” perished (Ref. 2nd Peter 3:6).  If that world existed prior to the supposed pre-Adamic cataclysm, then suffering and death existed for a billion years before the sin of Satan and the subsequent sin of Adam.

As stated earlier the Bible says, that death came into the world only when Adam brought sin into the world (Ref. Romans 5:12-14, 1st Corinthians 15:21-22).  This fact directly contradicts the assumption the “Gap Theory” makes that death prevailed for ages before Adam.  Furthermore, this Pre-Adamic existence of suffering and death before Satan’s rebellion leaves only God Himself as responsible for such a state. But the very idea that the God of order and love would directly create and use a universal system based on randomness and cruelty seems almost blasphemous and ridiculous. These, however, are the implications of the “Gap Theory.” The simple fact is that the natural reading of the first two verses of Genesis does not even suggest an iota of reason for such a theory.

Another problem the gap theorist have is that according to the original Hebrew translation which inserts the word “now” at the beginning of verse 2 instead of the conjunctive word “and,” every Hebrew scholar without exception says that the word “and” or “now” ties verse two directly to verse one and it is impossible grammatically to sandwich any form of gap between these two verses.  Therefore, Genesis 1:1-2 can simply be translated grammatically as follows; “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  (2) [And as a result] the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”  We can try our hardest to try and make the Bible say what we want it to say but the simple fact is that the Bible simply does not leave any opening for the existence of a time gap.

Exodus 20:11 is another stumbling block for the gap theorists.  It reads, “For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.”  The writer, Moses who was looking back on the Creation did not seem to think that the word “day” meant long geologic periods of time. 

So let us pose the question!  Just how old is the Earth?  There is tremendous evidence that the earth is not very old.  The science of calculating the age of the earth is called “Geochronology.”  Geochronologists use 80 different tests that apply to things in our world to determine how old the Earth is.  Geochronology is based upon the “Theory of Uniformity.”  The “Theory of Uniformity” states that if something happens at a certain rate today it must have happened at the same rate yesterday, last year or in the years past.  So if we take the rate of things that are happening and calculate it back it will tell us how old the earth is.  Five to one those tests support a very young earth.  The ones that support an older earth are only in the arena of several hundred thousand years and at the far end they put the Earth’s age at only 1,000,000 years.  That is a far cry from the 4.5 Billion years evolutionists put as the age of the Earth.  There is not one scientific test on earth that puts the age of the Earth at over 1,000,000 years old.  Whether it is the influx of radiocarbon or the development of human population or the submarine oil seepage into our oceans all can be measured and all estimate the age of the earth as very young.  The simple truth is that not one of these eighty tests point to an extremely old earth.

            Nest month we will begin our defense of creationism.
