Most of us were raised with the theory of evolution being taught to us as fact in the public school system. For those of us that may not know what evolution is, it is the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms. It is the gradual development of something, from a simple to a more complex form. Darwin’s theory, over the years, has become fact, accepted in all walks of life and even in the scientific community. It also includes man as one of the living organisms that evolved.
This theory is, of course, contrary to the Bible and eliminated God, as the creator of all living things. It’s premise is that if you apply enough time, existing chemicals and other substances that are found on earth, will spark life and form living organisms that over more time will grow and develop into higher organisms and eventually plant, animal and even human life. That’s like saying if I place all the raw materials needed to make a watch in a bucket and leave it for millions of years it will eventually become a fully operational watch. Time and substances cannot produce life.
Again, the Bible is the only source for a realistic understanding of life. I will again point to Intelligent Design as a proof text that God was and is still behind the creation of all things including man. Listen to what Moses wrote in Genesis, chapter one;
King James Version (KJV)
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 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: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 26 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. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 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. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. God rested on the seventh day.
Note: God spoke creation into existence. He said, “Let there be, and it came forth from nothing.
All the above scripture verses clearly say that God created earth and everything else. He is the “Intelligent Designer” behind it all.
Here are 10 sure evidences that dispute evolution, showing it to be false.
Meteoritic dust falls on the earth continually, adding up to thousands, if not millions, of tons of dust per year. Realizing this and knowing that the moon also had meteoritic dust pilling up for what they thought was millions of years, N.A.S.A. scientist were worried that the first lunar ship that landed would sink into many feet of dust which should have accumulated. However, only about 1/8 of an inch of dust was found, indicating a young moon. The assumption is, that if the 1/8 thickness is evident on the moon, it also has to be the same for the earth because they are in close proximity.
Meteoritic material contributes nickel to the oceans. Taking the amount of nickel in the oceans and the supply from meteoritic dust yields over the years indicates that the age of the earth is only several thousand years, certainly not millions as evolutionists claim.
Thus the nickel count in our oceans and meteoritic dust deposits found on the earth clearly indicates a younger planet.
The earth’s magnetic field is decaying rapidly at a constant rate. Using this rate of decline, one can back step and determine the magnetism of the earth. 8,000 years ago, the earth would have equaled that of a magnetic star, a highly unlikely occurrence. Also, if electric currents in the earth’s core were responsible for the earth’s magnetism, the heat generated would have dissolved the earth.
Charles Darwin stated, in his Origin of Species, “The geological record is extremely imperfect and this fact will, to a large degree, explain why we do not find intermediate varieties, connecting together all the extinct and existing forms of life by the finest graduated steps. He who rejects these views on the nature of the geological record will rightly reject my whole theory.”
Now, over 130 years and billions of fossils later, we can rightly reject the view of an incomplete fossil record or of one, “Connecting together all forms of life by the finest graduated steps.”
Out of millions of fossils in the world, not one transitional form has been found. All known species show up abruptly in the fossil record, without intermediate forms, thus contributing to the fact of special creation.
The science of probability has not been favorable to the evolutionary theory. Dr. James Coppedge, of the Center for Probability Research in Biology in California, made some amazing calculations. Dr. Coppedge applied all the laws of probability studies to the probability of a single cell coming into existence by chance. He computed a world in which the entire crust of the earth…all the oceans; all the atoms and the whole crust were available. He then had these amino acids bind at a rate one and one-half trillion times faster than they do in nature. In computing the possibilities, he found that to provide a single protein molecule by chance combination would take 10, to the 262nd power, years to get a single cell. (That is, the number 1 followed by 262 zeros) The single smallest living cell known to mankind – which is called the mycroplasm hominis H39, would take 10, to the 119,841 power, years. That means that if you took thin pieces of paper and wrote 1 and then wrote zeros after it, you would fill up the entire known universe with paper before you could ever even write that number. That is how many years it would take to make one living cell, smaller than any human cell!
According to Emile Borel, a French scientist and expert in the area of probability, an event on the cosmic level with a probability of less than 1 out of 10, to the 50th power, will not happen. The probability of producing one human cell by chance is 10, to the 119,000 power.
Sir Fred Hoyle, British mathematician and astronomer, was quoted in Nature magazine, November 12, 1981, as saying “The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way (evolution) is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.”
Second Law of Thermodynamics
The second law of thermodynamics states that although the total amount of energy remains constant, the amount of usable energy is constantly decreasing. This law can be seen in most everything. Where work is done, energy is expelled. That energy can never again be used. As usable energy decreases, decay increases. Herein lies the problem for evolution. If the natural trend is toward degeneration, then evolution is impossible, for it demands the betterment of organisms through mutation.
The sun’s diameter is shrinking at the rate of five feet per hour. At this rate, life could not have existed on the earth 100,000 years ago because the sun’s heat output would have rendered the earth inhabitable.
The spin rate of the earth is slowing .00002 second per year. If the earth were the billions of years old, as the evolutionists say it is, the centrifugal force would have notably deformed the earth billions of years ago.
The 22nd edition of Robert Young’s concordance lists thirty-seven ancient written accounts which all place the date for creation at no earlier than 7000 B.C.
Finally, and most importantly, the Bible says that God created the universe and every living thing, so the world must have been created. In denying this, we call God a liar.

The damage of this theory has been to our children, whose minds have been conditioned to believe a lie. The consequences of such a lie are devastating:
- It devalues human life, putting it equal to animal life, not as a higher being.
- It says God is not real, leaving man with no accountability, fear of judgment, and respect for other life.
- It strips man of any reason for his own existence and says life is meaningless.
- It denies man God’s divine destiny, the purpose for which he was created.
- It says to our children, “Why try?” “What’s the point?” “Is that all there is?”
When a theory is taught, by educators as fact and our children are denied access to evidence that exposes the theory to be a lie, our society slowly shifts from a God-Fearing nation to an immoral self-absorbed society that has no regard for anything but itself. Without God, living life has no meaning.
There Are Signs Everywhere
I am so glad that God left us signs everywhere that He is alive and well and tending to His creation. Knowing all of this should lead us to ask Him, Why do I exist…and to discover His destiny or will for our life.
Until Next Time
