Today's Creation Moment

The Stones at Carnac
Genesis 11:8
“So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.”
On the southern coast of the Breton peninsula in Northern France is a small rural town called Carnac. It is a pleasant enough seaside resort. I remember enjoying a couple of days there with my family...

Facts that Weren't

1 Timothy 6:20-21
"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane [and] vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace [be] with thee. Amen."

What is a Christian to think when we are told so often that the "facts of science" prove evolution – and disprove the Bible's story of man's history?

Tepexpan ManNot all "facts" are created equal. For example, the fact that Jesus Christ was a real person is not open to interpretation. He is mentioned in the Bible and by other writings of the time. That's a fact. Evolutionists use a different meaning for the word "fact".

A fossil, the "Tepexpan Man", is an example of an evolutionary "fact." "Tepexpan Man" is a fossil which, school children were taught, lived over 10,000 years ago. It is now known to be less than 2,000 years old and is a woman! An object found in the United States was said to be a fossilized egg, possibly 16 million years old. Now it is known that the object is a three to five year old stomach stone from a modern mammal – possibly a cow. A giant fossil found in South Australia early in 1990 was declared to be Australia's largest dinosaur bone. Further study has now shown the object to be a fossilized tree trunk. As I said, all "facts" are not created equal!

You need to know that most of the "facts" that you were taught 20 years ago supporting evolution have since been found to be either in error or open to serious question. Evolutionary "facts" are only interpretations of the world. So the Christian can follow the Truth of Scripture with confidence, knowing that the Bible is unchallenged by the "facts" of evolution.

Dear Lord Jesus, as the Word made Flesh, You are the Way, the Truth and the Life. Give Christians a boldness of faith so that we are not intimidated by the claims against Your truth which are made by the unbelieving world. Amen.
