"And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself after his kind."
Charles Darwin knew nothing about genetics. In his day the cell was thought to be filled with nothing more than a watery jell. Darwin also thought that characteristics picked up during life could be passed on to the next generation.
“And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees in the garden.”
Most creationists are pro life because they see conception and birth as one of the clearest evidences of God’s original role as Creator. Scripture is filled with examples showing that God not only created the heavens and earth in six days, just as reported in several places in Scripture, but that He is still intimately involved with His creation.
“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
In 1866, a German scientist and strong supporter of Darwin, Ernst Haeckel, got into trouble for faking evidence. He supposedly showed that developing embryos go through the earlier evolutionary stages of their species. The scientific community investigated his so called discovery and found that he had faked his drawings. Unfortunately, some textbooks today – well over a century later – still present this faked evidence in support of evolution.
“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.”
Computer scientists, in trying to build a machine that sees like we do, have been studying how the eye works the miracle of vision. What they are discovering provides more scientific evidence that evolution is nothing more than a modern fairy tale for adults.
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
Evolutionists, trying to answer creationist arguments, have suggested that there is an “error” in the design of the eye that any wise Creator would not have made. That “error” in design, as evolutionists call it, is that the retina of the mammal’s eye is “inside out” – the light entering the eye passes through other eye tissue before hitting the photoreceptors. But is this really an error in design?
“For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.”
The human eye is so incredibly sensitive that it can actually detect a single particle of light – a photon.
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.”
The tiny computer chip – the basis of modern computers – is a thin wafer of silicon only about 7 millimeters across – about one fourth of an inch. This tiny chip might have the equivalent of 100,000 transistors built into it. Despite its size, hundreds of connections might be attached to it. The design of the computer chip is a marvel surpassed only by the amazing technology that can build it.
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Many people think that faith is strictly a religious matter and concerns unprovable issues such as angels, heaven and, of course, belief in the creation story. They further feel that belief in evolution is more reasonable, since it is based upon hard and proven facts. But is this true?
“Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power? . . . Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.”
Lots of folks would like you to believe that only ignorant, backward people reject evolution. But is that really the case? The fact is that the case for evolution is so weak that many scientists who cannot even be called friends of Christianity reject it on scientific grounds!
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
A straightforward reading of Genesis offers a very different story of humanity than does modern evolutionary science. Does the rest of the Bible contradict evolution too? Can Genesis and evolution be harmonized?
“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”
In showing how the Creator is intimately involved with His creation, Jesus said that the very hairs of our heads are numbered by Him. No detail is too small to escape His attention; no change misses His careful and loving eye.
“Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.”
People sometimes wonder why, with all the marvels science can design and build, it cannot build a good replacement for the heart. As medical science learns more about the heart, it becomes clear that replacing this complex mass of muscles is more difficult than might be imagined.
“Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.”
The automatic transmission in a vehicle changes gears in response to changing power demands and driving conditions. Likewise, the muscles in your body change gears in a sense, in response to your changing needs for them.
