Creation or Evolution 1
From the time that evolution and long ages started becoming popularised there have been
multiple threads of attack on the text of the bible.
One attack has been on the historicity of the book of Genesis.
Another attack has been through frauds perpetrated to "prove" evolution.
And, another has been the ascendancy of radical atheists following the ideas of Darwin.
In all the time since the first edition of "Origin" no "missing links" have been found,
no theory has been proposed for getting "life" from "non-life" without God, and no way
has been found for any "kind" of animal to evolve into another "kind"!
Once we realise that God's full revelation in the bible is the only viable history of
the world and shows us that all animals were made together on day six, we see how the
flood of Genesis is the correct reason for the fossils laid down in sedimentary layers
all around the world.
1. If Dinosaurs lived With Men, Where's The Evidence?
There is lots of evidence but don't expect evolutionists to show it to you!
We know from the flesh and collagen and blood cells found in Dinosaur bones by Dr Mary Schweitzer
of North Carolina State University, and others since 1992, that they can only have lived a short
time ago and cannot be millions of years old!
Also, in various parts of the world from Asia to the Americas, from England to Europe, dinosaur
sculptures, figurines, carvings, and drawings have been found from earlier times. Figurines
collected in the 1970's and carvings on Asian temples even, provided information regarding dinosaur
anatomy and anatomical details not known to the scientific establishment from fossils until
Details like the spinal plates and cones along the backs of some dinosaurs was not known about
from fossils until the 1990's and yet had been seen on the carvings and figurines excavated
from the 1950's to the 1970's! These, then unknown, anatomical features (Dermal Spines) would not have
been put on hundreds and thousands of figurines and carvings if they had not been seen by the original
artists. They must have seen these large dinosaurs first hand to depict them being ridden,
tamed and fought.
These particular dinosaur features could not have been faked by 'modern' artists at the time either
as they had no pictures or drawings from evolutionist literature to go on. The evolutionists didn't
even know about these 'Dermal Spines' yet!
Bottom line? Dinosaurs were made/created on day 6 with man. The fossil record and the paintings, tomb
etchings, figurines and carvings of men who lived with them give proof of this truth!

2. Couldn't God Have Used Evolution To Populate The World?
Not while having any integrity left after writing the bible!
In the bible God says He made all things to reproduce after their own kind. That is animals or
plants only reproduce what they are; dogs will only produce dogs; dinosaurs only dinosaurs.
In fact this is what we see in nature. By artificial selection we can get various types of
dog but they never change to become some other animal. In the natural world with isolation
we can get variations within a gene pool but not a change of genus.
The other thing that is said about evolution is that it is propagated by death. The survival
of the fittest is supposed to lead to new critters. This has never been observed though. Never!
Not in the fossil record and not in living creatures.
From a biblical standpoint, having death before Adam comes on the scene also means that salvation
is a meaningless concept, because death is then not as a result of sin. The bible though says
that no nephesh being (higher life, with a soul) died before Adam sinned. Adam brought sin and
death into the world. If he didn't then Jesus' death was in vain.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man (Adam), and death through
sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—
We know though that since there was a created start to the world in six days with Adam bringing
sin and death into it, we can have hope in Jesus for the reversal of this trap we are in and to
give us eternal life in a re-newed 'very good' earth!
Rom 5:18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness
leads to justification and life for all men.
Jesus came and paid the ultimate price for death because of Adam's sin; Death could not have
come into the world any other way or we have no hope!
3. What about the Gap Theory and the millions of years
First we have to decide whether we take the bible at face value or whether we will
add extra-biblical things to the bible to shore up our pre-conceived ideas.
In the Old Testament we have a legal document that was written by God's own hand and
which was ratified in blood.
Now if a legal document has any statements by the signatories which are falsified
then the whole document is 'null and void'.
The particular document I'm thinking about has this statement in one of it's
Exo 20:11 "For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and
all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed
the sabbath day and made it holy".
So this statement coroborates the information given in Genesis 1, that God made
the universe and everything in it in six days, and the geneologies in Genesis puts
this at about 6,000 years ago. There is no wriggle room in this statement, in a
legal document, for any gap of millions or billions of years, if you believe God
speaks and writes the truth!
Actually you will find that wherever people might seek to add or take away from
God's word, He always makes statements to expose any heretical doctrines!
Thus we find that according to the bible's own error correcting algorithm there
is no gap in which to fit millions of years and/or a theory like evolution, which
is patently false anyway; a fairy tale for adults!
4. Is there any other text in the bible besides "Exo 20:11" which
backs up your belief that God made the universe in six days, six thousand years ago?
God did say that we should have two or more witnesses!
When the witness is God Himself, I’m not so sure we need two witnesses, but nevertheless…
In the book of Mark, Chapter 10, we find Jesus being questioned about divorce. The Pharisees
ask if it is lawful to divorce one’s wife. Jesus’ answer in verses 6 to 9 is this…
Mar 10:6-9 But at beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man
shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’
So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man
Now the whole passage deals with when God made mankind and made them male and female and
instituted marriage. Mankind was made on day six, and marriage instituted immediately thereafter.
And Jesus says that this was 'at the beginning of creation'.
Other translations say “in the beginning of creation”, or “from the beginning of creation”!
So this took place when the earth was made.
If the earth was made 4.7 billion years ago and man only made a few thousand years ago then this
cannot be ‘at the beginning! This would be at the tail end of the earth’s existence. So either
the earth and the universe was made in six days about 6000 years ago or Jesus is a liar.
But, Jesus is NOT a liar; He would not be our saviour if He were!
But, He IS our saviour and His word can be trusted; so the universe was made about 6000 years ago!
Would you like a third witness statement? OK!
Also, in Luke 11:49–51, Jesus says this - Therefore also the
Wisdom of God said, ‘I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they
will kill and persecute,’"so that the blood of all the prophets,
which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
From the blood of Abel to the blood of Zacharias who was killed between the
altar and the sanctuary."
We see that Jesus places the killing of Abel, at the foundation of the world! Shouldn't we?
Selah! (Pause and think about that!)
5. What about pictures in evolution books that show embryos
develop from fish to man in stages in the womb?
This is one of the many classic frauds perpetrated by evolutionist believers in
their attempts to convince the public that evolution is not the myth it really is.
This series of supposed embryo drawings was faked by a man called Ernst Haeckel in
an attempt to create 'evidence' for evolution when it was becoming evident that
none was being found. It's been known to be a fake and a fraud for over 90 years
but it's still put in some text books and taught in schools to fool those who will
believe without checking.
The same applies to the 'horse' series if you were thinking of bringing that one up!
That's also a fraud and known to be, but books and museums still have it on display
to fool the children!
There have been lots of others like a pig's tooth being claimed to be 'Nebraska man';
bits from an ape and a modern human being cobbled together and the teeth filed down
to make "Piltdown man"; human bones like "Java man" and "Peking man" being called
"Homo Erectus"; and more recent finds like the ape 'Lucy' being passed off as a hominid
Every now and again one of these 'finds' is trotted out to fool the general public.
6. What about Simple Cells developing into more complex things?
We've already shown that mutations occuring in the world don't bring beneficial
changes that could develop into more complex creatures. Mutations hasten ageing
Also, there is no such thing as a simple cell! Any cell you choose is more complex
in it's structure, content and internal working than the most complex factory
made by man. There's as much complexity in one cell as in a whole body!
Do you know there is a structure in cells that transports material manufactured
within the cell from one place to another by walking along pathways pulling the cargo
behind it? And people call the cell, "simple"!?
As a quote from Carl Sagan, a famous proposer of evolution as the basis of life
the universe and everything, once pointed out, "There is no 'simple' life".
"The information content in the simplest cell is equivalent to
20 million pages of the Encyclopedia Britanica!"
Evolutionists know there is no proof of their beliefs and that the fossil record, the geological
record and biology all fit with Creation but they want to believe evolution anyway!
7. Didn't the sin of Adam bring death only to a newly evolved mankind?
To answer this let's look at a passage in Romans, Chapter 8.
Rom 8:19-22 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.
For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected
it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and
obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation
has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
You will notice the bible tells us that the whole of creation is waiting to come out of
bondage to death and decay with us, when we receive the glory of the children of God. So
we know from this that the second Adam, Jesus, paid for it's freedom when He paid for ours!
This could only be the case if the whole of creation was put into bondage by the first Adam
when he sinned!
If the creation is not suffering from death and corruption because of the
first Adam's sin then it cannot be rescued by the atonement of the second Adam. All this
suffering and death would be normal and good, but the bible says death is an enemy!
So we know therefore that death came to ALL of creation when Adam sinned; and
therefore no death or disease or carnivorous animals existed before Adam sinned!
IT WAS ALL GOOD! VERY GOOD!
8. Doesn't the bible say all things continue the same from creation?
This is a taken from a passage in the Second Book of Peter, Chapter 3.
If you read the passage though, you will see that it's not God who says it but 'scoffers' in the
end time who think that there haven't been any catastrophies brought by God; geology and everything
else supposedly just shows gradual changes over eons of time!
2 Peter 3:3-4 Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing
and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever
since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”
Notice God foretold 2000 years ago that 'scoffers' would say that the world is very old and changes
by uniformitarian principles. The 'assumption' is that the same natural laws and processes that
operate in the universe now, have always operated in the universe in the past; there was no
world-wide flood; rivers have always flowed as you see them now but for millions of years, etc.
But what does God say to this?
2 Peter 3:5-7 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being
and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was
deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being
kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
God foretold that they would not want to believe His word but that if they looked around honestly
they would see the results in the rocks of the flood that He brought on the whole world. Not only
that He gives a warning that things will not always continue smoothly into the future either! It's
a warning for those who don't have God's word as their highest authority and, 'knowing better',
decide to lead others away from the truth.
The geological record shows the evidence of a global flood; The biological record shows
reproduction according to 'kinds' and evolutionary cosmology has unfounded fudge factors like
'dark matter' and 'dark energy' and even then cannot explain our digital environment where
DNA is a 3 out of 4 error correcting digital code; and 'red shifts' are digitized not analogue, etc.
All real-world knowledge always shows that the Bible is correct and the evolutionists
conjectures wrong! But, they do not wish to retain God in their knowledge and so they believe
instead in their modern myths for adults!
Selah! (Ponder on that!)
9. How can light get from distant galaxies to us in 6000 years?
This would be a problem for God if everything has continued from the beginning exactly as they are
apparent to us today. There are scientists though who say that this is not necessarily the case
and that God could have created the universe in such a manner as to get distant light to the earth.
You can check out the references below for one such theory.
You should note though that the evolutionist's big bang theories have their own problem with light
from distant sources. It's not that evolutionist cosmologists can account for it and
According to the various big bang theories the variations in the background temperature which
existed at the beginning would need light to travel across the universe to equalize. This variation
in temperature is measured by the Cosmic Background Microwave Radiation. The background
radiation is level to one part in 100,000 though and there has not been enough time, even with the
evolutionist's guestimates of 13 plus billion years for the age of the universe, for the radiation
to have balanced out.
So 'Distant Light' is not a problem only for creationists; it's a problem for evolutionist
cosmologists also! And, creationists have models based on General Relativity which can
account for it without reference to imaginary (Non-observed) fudge factors like 'dark matter'
and 'dark energy' and 'inflation'!
10. What about mutations building up to cause evolution?
First of all the mutations occuring in the world don't bring beneficial changes that could be
selected for survival. If a creature needs a liver and part of one just appears by a mutation
(what are the odds here?) then there's no reason for this non-working part to be passed
on to the next generation in the blind hope that something else would be added to it which
may after 20 other bits that are just right are by chance added to it with all the right
connections to the blood supply, then it'll have a working liver and not die without one!
Of course the creature's DNA has to keep this modification (without errors) with each step to
cause it to make this new non-working 'part' organ and all it's connections automatically when
it's passed on in reproduction. The reproductive partner at each step has to have the same DNA
modification also so that it will be passed on to a majority of the offspring. Presumably he/she
has been getting the same exact random mutations and upgrades to the useless 'part organ' by
chance also until "voila" - the last generation has a working liver and survives!
If you believe this could happen for animals to evolve, you'll believe anything!
In actual fact we are suffering from mutations all the time but any geneticist will tell you
they are causing our DNA to deteriorate and our DNA is degenerating by 1 - 2% with each
generation. We're going downhill as a species not uphill as evolutionists like to believe
Just the reproduction and renewal of the cells in our body causes a deterioration which ends in
eventual cell death so that we age and die.
Evolutionists are right in one thing. If all you have to look forward to is this human life here
on earth then you don't have much to look forward to!
Since evolution is provably wrong though, you do have an eternity to look forward to. The only
question is, "Where will you be spending that eternity"?
Selah! (Pause and think about that!)
11. Hasn't religion been responsible for killing lots of
people in wars?
People who were in some way 'religious' have indeed been responsible for a lot
of killings around the world. Many would argue that it has not been through following
the actual tenets of all those religions, although some religion's founders have
indeed been warlike people. But the fact remains that many have been killed through
'religious' leaders and their followers.
On the other hand, Radical atheists have also been responsible for killing masses
Pol Pot - Cambodian athiest leader who killed 3 million of the Cambodian people.
Stalin - Killed 20 million Soviet citizens + another 20 million troops and
civilians died in world war II. (According to Historian, Roy Aleksandrovich Medvedev)
This rises to over 60 million when you add in the killings during the 'Gulag' era.
Hitler - Atheist evolution believer who killed over 6 million jews + another 15
million non-combattants in World War 2 from other national groups in German Nazi era.
Dr Joseph Mengele - Nazi SS doctor, believer in 'Darwinian Evolution' and 'Eugenics'
who used the death camp to experiment on, kill and maim Jews and other ethnic groups for
his 'research' in "Darwinian Eugenics".
Mao Zedung - Chinese Communist leader who oversaw the killing of over 70 million.
Looking at those numbers just for four leaders, radical atheist leaders have
killed more people that all radical religious leaders!
12. Isn't the theory of Evolution based on pure research and
Evolutionists may like you to think that, but anything made up by man comes with that
man's agenda and prejudices. You can get an example of this by looking at the full
title of the original "Origins" book as printed on the title page.
THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES
BY MEANS OF NATURAL SELECTION
PRESERVATION OF FAVOURED RACES IN THE STRUGGLE
by CHARLES DARWIN, M.A.,
You see there the agenda and prejudice of the author, and if you think that people
are reading a modern slant into the text then take a look at this quote from
'At some future period, not very far distant, as measured in centuries, the civilised
races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the
Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man. (Vol 1) 201.
Hitler was a fan and appealed to evolution as a justification for the Holocaust and
to murder Six Million Jews whom He considered an 'inferior' race along with other
'races' also considered inferior to his favoured Aryan 'race'.
13. Don't the 'annual' ice rings in the artic, etc, show that
the earth is millions of years old?
People guessed that ice rings were formed annually and so counting rings would be a judge
of elapsed time. What has been learned from real life though is that the rings are not
because of summer and winter, they are because of warm and then cold, warm and then cold!
The lost squadron of US aircraft abandoned in WW2 on Greenland were found under
240 feet of ice and under hundreds of ice rings made in only 48 years. You can get
many ice rings in one week let alone one year! The deepest ice cores taken from
the Arctic, etc, when divided by the 5 feet per year over the lost squadron only
come to a few thousand years and the rings also give the same story because
they are not annual as the lost squadron showed.
It’s always good to get
real evidence rather that have blind faith in untested theories.

14. Doesn't the fact that land, sea and flying animals have
the same 'hand' structure prove they evolved from a common ancestor?
Another possibility is that it shows a common designer who used a useful blueprint
over and over again.
It's interesting though that the 'hand' structures in various animals, birds,
etc. are formed by different genes and grow out in different ways.
If they had evolved from a common source the same genes would be
involved in all cases but what we see is God switching the genes he used in the
various animals so you'd see that an inteligent designer was at work!
God always anticipates the false ideas people will put up to fool the innocent,
and He always provides the evidence to debunk the frauds!
15. All your points may be true but, why would a good God
allow all the pain, suffering and evil in the world.?
That's an interesting question, asked by Christians and Non-christians alike.
Of course the Atheist does not ask his 'god of random chance' why it should create suffering
and evil. He only asks this of the God of the bible! But, what is the atheist's answer for
evil and suffering being in the world? He has no answer! Indeed why should he call anything
evil when it comes about by blind chance?
Now to answer from my Christian knowledge.
A. Pain is, at a certain level, necessary for human and animal safety. If we did not feel
pain when we put our hands in a fire we would soon be limbless. If we did not feel pain
when cut or hit by something and learn to avoid those situations we would not survive!
B. When God made man, He put man in charge of the world! See Genesis 1:28 and
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill
the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds
of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
As you can see God gave man (Adam) complete dominion 'over every living thing on the
earth'. We are the ones that are in charge and allowing suffering and evil! Many won't
like to hear this but it's there in the bible! Not all of us have the position to
influence this situation for the better on a national scale, but it is mankind that
God put in charge here on earth, to influence our patch.
So what does God think that we can manage in rolling back the works of the devil?
Isaiah 58:6-9 "Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’
This may be more than you thought you could do to make the world a better place, but "hey!",
if God has given us the world for our own, can we not put faith in Him to enable/empower
us to do our part? He must think that we can!
Psa 115:16 The heavens are the LORD’s heavens, but the earth he has given to the
children of man.
C. Of course, not everything is down to men. We've had help to be evil! There is a being
with many minnions who has made it his life's work to, "steal, kill and destroy", anything
man has and man himself. And he works through people to do this.
But Jesus has defeated Satan and so Christians who put faith in Jesus have the authority
from Him and the power from Holy Spirit in them, to follow in Jesus' footsteps.
Act 10:38 ...God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went
about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
Through faith in Jesus we can make things better now, and what's more, on His return Jesus
will set up the finale to God's plan to bring heaven to earth!
There is sin and the devil, and suffering and evil in the world while men are in charge;
but to the Christian there is a solution - Jesus!
You can be a follower of fallible man made ideas and theories and what that
brings or a follower of the God of the bible, who has revealed His interaction
with the world He created, and mankind whom He loves.
Best wishes for Grace and The Peace of Jesus.
