Christ our Creator – in whom all things exist – Part 2
Defending Creationism

September 2017

To further demonstrate the mathematical impossibility of all this coming together without any divine influence imagine this cell with all its complex machinery which science calls “Protein Molecules.” Each protein molecule is made up of several thousand parts which science calls “Amino Acids.” The cell itself does not have the ability to put together all these parts on its own. 

Herein lies the problem!  Our cell needs these protein molecules to operate and the parts (amino acids) to make it are all boxed up each box consists of over four hundred amino acids and they must all be stringed together in exactly the right sequence to make the protein molecule operate properly.  This is no easy objective for it is mathematically calculated that the number of possible combinations of amino acids outnumbers the total number of atoms on the planet earth. 

But fear not for somehow, someway an instruction book developed.  This instruction book on how to assemble the amino acids exactly and perfectly in order is called DNA. Each of the DNA molecules has over four billion bits of information on how to assemble the amino acids properly.  The problem is that DNA cannot communicate with the amino acids, so something else is needed to properly relate the instructions to the amino acids so they can be assembled properly.  This translator is called RNA.  Once the proper sequence from the DNA is broken down and is then translated by the RNA the proper assembly instructions can be given to the amino acids so that they can come together properly and once that happens one single protein molecule is created.  If this is not complex enough it becomes even more complex when we realize that the simplest of cells has 249 protein molecules.  To make this simple to understand let me use an illustration.  This coping and translation process between the DNA, RNA and the amino acids would take a secretary 40 hours of constant typing at a rate of 6,000 words per minute to accomplish; and it would have to be accomplished without one single mistake or the entire process would fail.  Now evolution states that this all happened without any intelligent designer.

What do you think the odds are for this to happen without some sort of intelligence beyond human comprehension?  Atheistic Evolutionist have embraced this wild idea and accepted the unbelievable odds as facts to the point that men like the English biologist Julian Huxley to say “Darwinism has removed the entire idea of God as creator from the sphere of rational discussion.  Darwinism points out that no supernatural designer is needed.”[i]  Simply stated we have to believe that by some freak accident 445 amino acids have to assemble themselves together with their four billion bits of information without any guiding principle.

Let me give you some numbers so we can relate just how improbable this process would be without any divine influence. The simplest cell on the planet has more than 249 proteins each one containing 445 amino acids that must all be lined up in a perfect sequence in order to operate.  This is what is needed to get a spark of life.  Now take ten pennies which illustrates only one protein not 249 and only 10 amino acids not 449.  Imagine numbering these pennies one through ten shaking them up and throwing them in the air.  What do you suppose the odds are of all these pennies landing in a line in the right numerical sequence?  The odds are one in ten million.  Now remember we are speaking about one protein not 249 and 10 amino acids not 449.  Science has calculated that the odds of 249 protein molecules with 449 amino acids each coming together perfectly to form just one cell is 1 to 10 to the 320th power.  That is 10 with 320 zeros following it.  Now to put this into perspective the total amount of all the fundamental particles in the entire known universe according to scientists is 10 to the 134th power.  What that means is there are not even enough fundamental particles in the entire known universe to illustrate the odds needed to produce just one protein coming together perfectly.  And the time required to run all the options based on random selection would take 10 to the 234th billion years.  Now considering Atheistic evolutionist say the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years. The total number of seconds in 4.5 billion years is 10 to the 18th power.  That means that there are not enough particles in the entire universe to illustrate the odds of this happening or time in the history of the world needed to run the optional combinations to accomplish this.

Let me give you one more illustration.  The odds of this one simple cell with 249 proteins with each protein containing 445 amino acids all coming together perfectly in order to form a living cell scientist tell us is 1 in 10 to the 137,915th power.  This is why every single molecular biologist in the world has a problem buying into evolution.  They know that it is a mathematical impossibility for this to happen without some kind of divine intelligence guiding the process.  Simply and succinctly put, life could not align itself and spring into existence on its own – it is way too complex.  George Wall one of the leading biology professors in the world, a professor from Harvard University wrote this; “one has only to contemplate the magnitude of this task to concede that spontaneous generation of living organisms is impossible.”  He goes on to say in this article “I choose to believe that which I know is impossible rather than accept the unthinkable-which is special creation.”[ii]

Now that we have examined the evidences against evolution, which at best is extremely shaky and at worse an outright deception, let us take a moment and examine some proofs of creation.  The Bible tells us that God created all things in seven days and Christ upholds all things by His power. Isaiah 66:2a “For all those things My hand has made, And all those things exist," Says the LORD.”  Revelation 4:11 “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”

The scientific evidence for Creation vs. Evolution can show anyone interested in Christian apologetics that you really can believe in a Biblical Creation, a worldwide flood and the evidence against Evolution according to logic, science and intellectual reasoning.

One small example of evidence for Creation over Evolution is exposed in something called Micro/Macro Deception.  Most people are not aware that there are 2 types of Evolution – “Micro-evolution” and “Macro-evolution.”  “Micro-evolution” happens all the time and is perfectly Biblical. “Macro-evolution” is what Darwin claims to have happened and Evolutionists all hold to and teach and teach as truth.  The problem is, as we have discussed already, it never happened and is not happening now!  Evolutionists fill our textbooks, news reports and publications with legitimate examples of observed “Micro-evolution” and no examples of observed Darwinism or “Macro-evolution.” Now this could be because there are no examples of “Macro-evolution’ observed in all human history.  Evolutionists lump together all the evidences of “Micro-evolution” and call it “proof of evolution.”  Let me show you what I mean by explaining in simple terms the difference between “Micro” and “Macro” evolution.

First though, we need to properly understand the word “evolution.” In the literal sense, “evolution” is not a bad word. It merely means “change over time.” We all change over time, so in the strictest literal sense, we “evolve.” Our thinking even “evolves” as we get older.  But of course, that's not what the evolutionists mean when they tell us humanity “evolved” from a common ancestor.

“Micro-evolution” is a common occurrence and we see it all the time in living organisms. It is nothing more than a shuffling of already existing genetic information to adapt to changing environmental conditions. For example, a study of “Cane toads” in Australia revealed that over a span of 70 years, the toads with longer legs tended to survive because they could run and leap farther and faster, thereby avoiding death at the hands of a predator. Consequently, the shorter legged toads died out. Here is the catch.  All of the toads had it within their existing genetic structure to develop longer legs, so whenever the occasional toad would be born with a dominant “longer leg” gene, he would have an advantage in survival and then pass that dominant gene onto his tadpoles and before you know it, the whole Cane toad population “micro-evolved” longer legs.  Similarly, if you put some dogs on an island where the climate was too cold for their fur, eventually a dog will be born with a dominant gene for thicker fur and he would survive, pass that gene onto his puppies and over time you would see that the dogs would have “micro-evolved” thicker fur. This is the same thing that was observed in the Galapagos Islands with regards to Darwin's finches. Certain finches developed different shaped beaks over time that helped them adapt to the types of food available. In all of these cases with the finches, the toads, the dogs etc., the changes they experienced were already built into their genetic codes. That is critical to remember!  At no time did a single piece of new, additional genetic information develop in any of these cases. It was merely a shuffling of existing genetic information.

This “Micro-evolution” is fully accepted by Creation Scientists. It has always been seen as an example of God's brilliance in creating all forms of life with more genetic information than they use at any given time. This allows them to adapt to various environmental changes in order to survive. This is the sign of a smart God.

Now let's examine the meaning of “Macro-evolution.”  “Macro-evolution” is what is currently being taught today as the explanation for the origins of life and “atheistic evolution.”  For those Cane toads to “Macro” evolve, they would need to evolve into a completely different species. So here's what evolutionists try to cover up. There is no evidence anywhere on the Earth, nor has there ever been any evidence of any animal Macro-evolving into a completely different kind of animal. The finches stayed finches, the toads stayed toads. If the kind of evolution being taught to us now were true, those toads would evolve into non-toads, maybe a bird or possibly eventually a lizard or perhaps a cow someday.

For this to happen, the evolving animal would have to produce offspring with “new and additional” genetic information. That has never been observed in the history of mankind. That's right; in all of the testing being done in all the laboratories and zoos by scientists worldwide, there has never once been an example of even one animal giving birth to an offspring with new, additional genetic information.  There has only been observed simple shuffling or a duplication of existing genetic information. So if the evolutionists are right, we are forced to believe that for billions of years, life has evolved from amoebas in the oceans all the way up through the food chain, growing and increasing in complexity and design, adding new genetic information generation after generation in millions of species for millions of years, but suddenly in our recent history....nothing!  Now that we have the modern technology, laboratories scientists and the cameras to proof evolution is a fact, we do not see it happen anymore.

The deception that lies in the “creation/evolution” debate is that evolutionists fill our textbooks and science journals with “examples” of evolution occurring all the time.  However, if you read what the actual examples are, you will see that they are all the “Micro-evolution” examples from earlier. All the “proof” of evolution being presented is nothing more than certain features on animals making slight changes in shape or size, but staying the very same kind of animal. Some dolphins may develop longer or shorter fins, but they have never grown wings and then evolved into a bird. The evolutionists know this, and so they point to these genetic adaptations within a species as evidence for evolution. They are hoping that by showing you the ways a horse can genetically develop different breeds of size and shape, you will take that as evidence the horse used to be a whale. Remember, a dolphin developing longer fins is not in any way evidence that dolphins used to be, at one time, anything other than a dolphin. “Micro-evolution” has been going on since the dawn of time; it is an accepted scientific fact.  However, it in no way demonstrates as fact the “Theory of Evolution” as presented and taught by our schools today!

You may say “but it takes millions of years for those dogs to evolve into a cow.” If one holds to the “Theory of Evolution” that is true.  However, it only takes one day for an animal to be born with new, additional genetic information.  Since that is required for Evolution to be true, and it supposedly has been happening for billions of years, we should still see that happening everyday. Yet of all the millions upon millions of animals born worldwide every day the percentage of current animals born with new, additional genetic information is 0.0%. It has never once been observed.

A new study by evolutionary biologists Robert Dorit (Yale), Hiroshi Akashi (University of Chicago), and Walter Gilbert (Harvard) flies in the face of prevailing “origin-of-man” scenarios.[iii] [iv]  In an attempt to trace the ancestry of humans, these researchers looked for genetic differences in the Y chromosome of 38 men living in different parts of the world and having different ethnic backgrounds. Since only males possess the Y chromosome, such a study offers a narrowly focused look at genetic material as it has developed over time and distance. To their amazement, Dorit and his team found no nucleotide differences in the non-recombinant part of the Y chromosomes. This lack of deviation verified that no evolution has occurred in the male ancestry of humans. Stunned by these unexpected results, theses evolutionary biologists did a statistical analysis to determine whether the 38 men sampled somehow inaccurately represented the male population of the earth. They were forced to conclude that man’s forefather was a single individual – not a group of hominids who lived less than 270,000 years ago.

The Bible account of creation is vindicated by scientists. God created Adam, father of the human race. Also, the “no more than 270,000 years” is an interesting retraction from wilder speculations of millions of years. The challenge this study presents to Darwinism is profound and devastating to its foundation.

The study of women offered a mere shred of support for “Micro-evolution.” The Y chromosome research lends no support for “Macro-evolution.”  As for “Macro-evolution,” the results of both studies rule any existence of Homo – erectus. Homo – erectus is an extinct species of humanoids who supposedly, according to evolutionary science, lived from about 1.8 million years ago to 50-70,000 years ago. These Homo – erectus were supposed to be a possible progenitor of modern humans.[v]

This study was devastating to Darwinists. Shortly thereafter, an American molecular biologist, Michael Hammer, examined 2,600 nucleotide base pair segments of the Y chromosomes in 16 ethnically distinct groups. His results indicated that all descended from one man living as recently as 51,000 years ago. 

A British team of geneticists studied 100,000 nucleotide based pairs in five ethnically distinct groups. The results were even more compatible with the Bible. Humans are descendants from one man who lived, according to their calculations, 37,000 to 49,000 years ago.[vi]

Another study was conducted in 1987 on the mitochondrial DNA, which is only passed in the female line from mother to daughter. The conclusion of this study was that all contemporary humans are descendants of one woman (whom ironically they call “Eve”), living less than 200,000 years ago. This study observed a very slight variation on the sampling of women, in contrast to no variation on the men. The study on women may indicate the possibility of slight “Micro – evolution.” Therefore, the male study harmonizes with the Genesis account of creation. Males have a singular origin which the Bible account in Genesis calls Adam; whereas this is not true of women.  According to the Genesis account Eve was created from Adam, which probably accounts for the slight variation in the mitochondrial DNA of women.

Recent research on Neanderthal has challenged the Darwinists’ arbitrary evolutionary sequence of hominids as well. In 1996 anthropologists Jeffrey Schwartz and Ian Fattersall examined more than a dozen Neanderthal skulls. They found nasal bones and sinus cavities many times larger than modern man’s and no tear ducts. Their conclusions could cause tears for evolutionists! Why? They asserted that anatomical differences eliminate the Neanderthal from the line of human ancestry! 

The final blow to Neanderthal was struck by Darwinists in 1997.  Darwinist molecular researchers recovered DNA from a Neanderthal fossil and decoded it to compare how closely it resembled human DNA. Their conclusions were that the human face is neither descended from nor related to Neanderthal species. This blow to Darwinism startled the world. The news was heralded by Newsweek Magazine (July 21, 1997, V. 130, p. 65) with a picture of Neanderthal on its front cover.  The Darwinists’ “molecular clock” is beginning to look more like the “Genesis clock.”

Molecular research confirms what would reasonably be expected of a creation model.[vii]  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul… And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man” (Genesis 2:7, 21-22).[viii] 

Another stunning blow to evolutionary science is that scientists have actually identified over 188 parameters within our solar system and 38 parameters elsewhere in the universe. Each of these parameters is so exacting that they could not happen by chance. For example: If the strong nuclear force were decreased as little as two percent, multi-proton nuclei would not hold together. Hydrogen would be the only element in the universe because the hydrogen atom has only one proton and no neutrons in its nucleus.  If the strong nuclear force were increased as little as two percent, protons and neutrons would attach to many other protons and neutrons. There would be no hydrogen, only other heavy elements. Life chemistry cannot exist without hydrogen, yet it can only exist with more elements than hydrogen.

If the gravitational force were decreased, stars would be so cool that nuclear fusion, the burning mechanism in the core of stars, would not ignite. If the gravitational force were increased, stars would be too hot and burn up quickly and unevenly.

If the mass density of the approximately hundred billion trillion stars of the universe was decreased in the slightest, the universe would contain only hydrogen and helium. If the mass density of the universe was increased again in the slightest amount, the universe would contain only elements heavier than iron and the carbon, oxygen and nitrogen necessary for life would not be possible.  For it would only be possible in a vast universe with billions of stars. The odds of this perfect balance of the universe’s mass density happening by chance would be equivalent to covering the entire North American continent with dimes stacked up to the moon (230,000 miles). Make a million other piles of dimes of equal size. Paint one dime red and hide it in the billion piles. The odds that a blindfolded person would pick the red dime out on the first try are one in 10 to the 40th power. This is for only one of the delicately balanced parameters that are necessary to allow life on the planet earth.[ix] 

Does it matter then whether we believe in creation or in evolution?  Based on overwhelming historical evidence alone we answer emphatically, YES! The theory of evolution has had an extraordinarily adverse impact on mankind and should be committed to the dustbin of history. Let us examine the scriptural testimony which the theory of evolution was meant to replace:

  1. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:16-17).  These are categorical statements made by the creator of all things.  There is no other way to look at this truth. All one can do is deny it. Only “the fool has said in his heart, "there is no God” (Psalm 14:1).   
  2. “And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” (Genesis 1:26) Man was created in the mental and moral likeness of God, with ability to reason and to exercise his free will to choose right or wrong. Man exists on a higher plane than the animals, just “a little lower than the angels” (Psalms 8:5).  Man is, therefore, responsible to our Creator to observe or in failing to observe His law.
  3. “For as all in Adam die, even so all in Christ shall be made alive.” “All that are in their graves shall hear his voice and shall come forth.” (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:22; John 5:28-29) Adam’s fall into sin affected the entire human race. It is through Adam that mankind inherited sin and death. Jesus tasted death for every man that all might have an opportunity for fullness of perfect life. Contrary to evolution, fallen man will have a return from death.
  4. “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” “What doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God” (Matthew 4:4; Micah 6:8)?  The Bible provides a firm foundation for moral behavior as it has been given by the Creator through faithful prophets and teachers. Subjective human standards at best are unreliable. Rather, they can be destructive.
  5. “The times of restitution of all things.” “I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.” “For thus saith the Lord who created the heavens; God himself who formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited.” (Acts 3:21; Isaiah 13:12; 45:18) God’s purpose in creating man was to have a perfect race of men living harmoniously with the rest of His creation in paradise. Contrary to the evolution theory of man reaching an ever higher estate from an original low estate, the Bible promises a time of restoration of man back to the perfection and potentials which Adam possessed in the garden. Every man’s life will no longer be esteemed to be of little or no enduring value – but precious and full of meaning.

What a contrast is shown when the principles of life in the Scriptures are compared with the effects of the theory of evolution on mankind!  Evolution gives no hope of mankind ever rising to higher levels of life.  The Scriptures on the other hand, have always exercised an uplifting influence upon man, whereas evolution has degraded him.  Belief in a loving, Omniscience Omnipotent Creator and Designer of all things who upholds all things by his power is indeed a matter of life, while any belief in any evolution theory a matter of death! 

The Bible declares with unwavering and unmistakable clarity that this someone is; The LORD JESUS CHRIST – “who by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.  By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew (Proverbs 3:19-20).  “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. (7) He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. (8) Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. (9) For he spoke, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:6-9). For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else (Isaiah 45:18).  And in Jeremiah 10:12-15, God announces that “He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.  Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.”

Proverbs 30:4 asks us one of the most important questions we will ever be asked in regard to these devilish hypotheses called evolution. “Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in his fists?  Who hath bound the waters in a garment?  Who hath established all the ends of the earth?  What is His name, and what is His son's name, if thou canst tell?”  Christians must answer the question posed in Proverbs 30:4 without doubt and with unequivocal assuredness, confidence and boldness – the answer – GOD, Elohim, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Lord JESUS the CHRIST.  “This is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (John 17:3).
