*EVOLUTION VS CREATION*
Some of you have asked us about the issue of ‘evolution vs creation’; here are some thoughts for you, also a PDF book of over 1000 pages to study and a few websites of interest.
As Christians we need to be ready to explain why we believe in God; Christianity is scientific! Satan today twists science to make men believe there is no God.
1. The universe was created by God (true)
2. The universe always existed (wrong)
3. The universe came into being by itself by purely natural processes (known as evolution) so that no appeal to the supernatural is needed (wrong)
There are at least six different meanings to the word “evolution.” Students are deceived into thinking all six types of evolution below are true:
1. COSMIC EVOLUTION—the origin of time, space, and matter. Big Bang or a big explosion produced everything from nothing.
2. CHEMICAL EVOLUTION—the origin of all elements (iron, calcium, oxigen and all other about 118 elements) from hydrogen.
3. STELLAR AND PLANETARY EVOLUTION—Origin of stars and planets from cosmic dust (cosmic dust came together to form stars)
4. ORGANIC EVOLUTION—Origin of life from matter
5. MACROEVOLUTION—Changing life forms from one kind into another. Atheist science teaches that a dog became horse, for example, or a whale became a cow.
6. MICROEVOLUTION—Variations within kinds. Only this one
has been observed as true: crossing different breeds of dogs can produce other types of dogs, but not horses.
*PROOFS FROM UNIVERSE THAT THE UNIVERSE IS NOT MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD:*
1. The shrinking sun limits the earth-sun relationship to fewer than “billions of years.” The sun is losing both mass and diameter. Changing the mass would upset the fine gravitational balance that keeps the earth at just the right distance for life to survive.
2. The ½ inch layer of cosmic dust on the moon indicates the moon has not been accumulating dust for billions of years.
3. The existence of short-period comets indicates the universe is less than billions of years old.
4. Fossil meteorites are very rare in layers other than the top layers of the earth. This indicates that the layers were not exposed for millions of years as is currently being taught in school textbooks.
5. The moon is receding (getting further from earth) a few inches each year. Billions of years ago the moon would have been so close that the tides would have been much higher, eroding the continents quickly.
6. The moon contains considerable quantities of U-236 and Th-230, both short-lived isotopes that would have been long gone if the moon were billions of years old.
7. The existence of great quantities of space dust, which by the Poynting-Robertson effect would have been vacuumed out of our solar system in a few thousand years, indicates the solar system is young.
8. At the rate many star clusters are expanding, they could not have been traveling for billions of years.
9. Saturn’s rings are still unstable, indicating they are not billions of years old.
10. Jupiter and Saturn are cooling off rather rapidly. They are losing heat twice as fast as they gain it from the sun. They cannot be billions of years old.
11. Jupiter’s moon, Io, is losing matter to Jupiter. It cannot be billions of years old.
12. Jupiter’s moon, Ganymede has a strong magnetic field. Among other factors to consider is that all the ancient astronomers from 2000 years ago recorded that Sirius was a red star—today it
is a white dwarf star. Today’s textbooks in astronomy state that billions of years are required for a star to “evolve” from a red giant to a white dwarf.
*PROOFS FROM THE EARTH THAT THE EARTH IS NOT MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD:*
13. The decaying magnetic field limits earth’s age to less than billions.
14. The volume of lava on earth divided by today’s rate of efflux gives a number of only a few million years, not billions. I believe that during the Flood, while “the fountains of the deep were broken up,” most of the earth’s lava was deposited rapidly.
15. Dividing the amount of various minerals in the ocean by their influx rate indicates only a few thousand years of accumulation.
16. The amount of Helium 4 in the atmosphere, divided by today’s formation rate on earth, gives only 175,000 years. (God may have created the earth with some existing helium. Just as Eve was created with already-long hair, she didnt need to wait for her hair to grow)
17. The erosion rate of the continents is such that they would erode to sea level in less than 14,000,000 years.
18. Topsoil formation rates indicate only a few thousand years of formation.
19. Niagara Falls’ erosion rate (four to seven feet per year) indicates an age of less than 8400 years. Don’t forget Noah’s Flood receding water could have eroded a part of the seven and a half-mile long
Niagara River gorge in a few hours as the flood waters raced through the soft sediments.)
20. The rock encasing oil deposits could not withstand the pressure for more than a few thousand years.
21. The size of the Mississippi River delta, divided by the rate mud is being deposited today, gives an age of less than30,000 years. (The Flood in Noah’s day could have washed out 80% of the
mud there in a few hours or days, so 4400 years is a reasonable age for the delta.)
22. The slowing spin of the earth limits its age to less than the “billions of years” called for by the theory of evolution.
23. A relatively small amount of sediment is now on the ocean floor, indicating only a few thousand years of accumulation. This embarrassing fact is one of the reasons why the continental
drift theory is vehemently defended by those who worship evolution.
24. The largest stalactites and flowstone formations in the world could have easily formed in about 4400 years.
25. The Sahara desert is expanding. It is about 4000 years old (the flood happened about 4000 years ago).
26. The oceans are getting saltier. If they were billions of years old, they would be much saltier than they are now.
27. Ice accumulation at the poles indicates less than 5000 years.
*…ALSO EVIDENCE FROM BIOLOGY*
28. The current population of earth (7 billion souls) could easily be generated from eight people (survivors of the Flood) in less than 4000 years.
29. The oldest living coral reef is less than 4200 years old.
30. The oldest living tree in the world is about 4300 years old.
Another factor to consider: The genetic load in man is increasing. Geneticists have cataloged nearly 1300 genetic disorders in the human race. It is certainly reasonable to believe that the human race
was created perfect from the hand of the Creator but has been going downhill as a result of our disobedience to the laws established by the Creator. The Bible teaches that we live in a sin-cursed world as a result of Adam’s sin.
31. The oldest known historical records are less than 6000 years old.
32. Many ancient cultures have stories of an original creation and a worldwide Flood . Nearly 300 of these flood legends are now known.
33. Biblical dates add up to about 6000 years.
