Creation vs Evolutionism
Romans 1:20 - "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse."
The idea for this hub came from a recent forum post entitled "Evolutionism the greatest story ever told." The writer writes a very long, but very informative case against evolution and I suggest you read it. I was already aware of the dangers of evolution, but was completely unaware of all the evidence for creation.
Mark 12:30 "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment" The Bible says “Love the Lord your God with all mind.” So we as Christians shouldn’t fear science or be afraid of evolution or dinosaurs or any thing because God as supplied all the answers in his word. Let's define some terms first.
Creation- Belief in the literal interpretation of the account of the creation of the universe and of all living things related in the Bible.
Intelligent Design- The assertion or belief that physical and biological systems observed in the universe result from purposeful design by an intelligent being rather than from chance or undirected natural processes. The God of the Bible is a candiate, but the movement is more secular
Evolutionism (there are six terms and only one has been proven and that one is also in the bible)
1. Cosmic evolution- the origin of time, space and matter. Big Bang.
2. Chemical evolution- the origin of higher elements from hydrogen.
3. Stellar and planetary evolution- Origin of stars and planets.
4. Organic evolution- Origin of life from inanimate matter.
5. Macroevolution- Origin of major kinds.
6. Microevolution Variations within kinds- Only this one has been observed and proven the other five are religious. They are believed, by faith, even though there is no empirical evidence to prove them in any way.
"Evolution is unproved and improvable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable." Arthur Keith (1866 — 1955) Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons
"Time is the god of evolutionists. The evolutionists' claim their time-god is very slow, but infinitely powerful. The time-god is credited with the ability to accomplish anything and everything given enough time. It simply takes the time-god millions or billions of years to accomplish it. Scientifically impossible events are credited to the time-god. Evolutionists keep their time-god close at hand where they can watch their god's hands move around slowly, slowly, slowly trying to evolve new species but never succeeding." Evolution is the devil’s handiwork.
God is well aware of the evil that evolution brings and the length man would go to reject Him, and why they don't understand the Bible. Their lives have already been foretold the scriptures.
2 Corinthians 4:4 "In their case, the god of this world (satan) has blinded the minds of those who do not believe to keep them from seeing the light of the glorious gospel of the Messiah, who is the image of God.
Romans 1:21-25 "For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 24Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen."
I encourage you to look into the evil of evolution and how satan is using it to bring about the end of the world.
Does the Bible mention Dinosaurs, the word no, but the animals Yes!
“Dinosauria,” meaning “terrible lizard,”
The Behemoth-Job 40:15-24
The behemoth ate plants. It must have been gentle; other animal appeared not to fear it. It was strong, especially its back legs, belly, and bones. It enjoyed resting in the water and was not afraid of flooding. It was too big and powerful to be trapped by humans its tail could sway like a cedar branch. It ranked first among all of God’s creatures.
The Leviathan-Job chapter 41, Psalm 104:25, 26 and Isaiah 27:1.
This description of a leviathan suggests the following features:
It was amphibious, spending much of its time in water, but capable of coming up onto the land.
Like the behemoth, it was too big and strong to be captured.
It had a tough scaly hide.
It had large, sharp, dangerous teeth set in strong jaws.
It had a strong neck.
It swam or walked with a coiling motion (like a snake?).
It breathed smoke and fire and had eyes that glowed.
It must have had short legs or flippers for its belly dragged on the ground.
In terms of fearlessness, nothing on earth was equal to it.
tanniyn (dragon) =dinosaur
Reptiles never stop growing. The Dinosaurs of the bible and of this earth were plant eaters not meat eaters like we have been taught, we know this from he bible
Genesis 1:30, "And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so."
And science proved this fact in two ways
The roots of T-Rex were only 2 inches deep. Had he bit into the hide of another dinosaur he would have lost teeth
They cut a tooth in half of an unearthed T-Rex and found in deeply impureated with CHLOROPHYLL! That's right, Chlorophyll is the main substance found in PLANTS not meat!
And before anyone says "That because it ate plant eaters. Wrong! There is no way possible that that much CHLOROPHYLL would surface in a creature unless is consuming plants only. The experts say.
Are surprised that you don't know these facts? Don't be, satan has is the father of lies and has used evolution as the biggest tool against Almighty God.
What about Noah Ark?
When discussing Noah's Ark the most common is question is "How did get every species on the ark?" First we must understand what the bible says Genesis 6 19-20 "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."
God told Noah two of every kind not species, and since it has been proven without question that dogs will always make dogs, but the dogs will vary in likeness and features, but they are still dogs. It sounds less nonsensical when you add science. You may think, but they were huge how did they fit? Of Course Noah had the common sense to know to bring babies or younger animals so they live longer and could make more of their own kind.
So Christians I encourage you to go and see the power of God through science.
If you are non-believer or agnostic. I challenge you to look at both sides honestly and you see the wonderful and perfect creation. And you worship the Creator, Almighty God.
And if you are an atheist, you have been brainwashed by pseudoscience and satan. Only God can change your heart, but you must humble yourself and He will reveal himself to you personally, and you will be forever changed.
Revelation 4:11 "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created."
What a Mighty God we serve
