The False Teaching of Evolution – Part 4

This week we have been looking at the false teachings of evolution. Let’s pick up where we left off yesterday.

There are solid answers to the evolutionist’s arguments. An examination of the layers of strata show micro layers with crystals going in different directions, and we know that the layer was laid down all at once. At one of Skip’s meeting, some PHD students testified that they had just taken their test for their PHD, and to pass the test, they had to answer that it took 1,000 years to lay down one millimeter of strata, and that Skip had just shown in his presentation that this was not true.

Just looking at what is going on in the real world can give you a better idea of the truth that listening to the theories of the PHDs. Having a degree doesn’t make you smart, it simply means you went to school. This, by the way, is true of all of the sciences.

An airplane landed on the attic ice in Greenland in the 1940s. It was abandoned and many years later, after all of the snows that had fallen on it, it was found and dug up. By this time it was some 150 ft down in the ice. The layers of ice, according to the “scientific” theories, indicated that the plane had been there for hundreds of years. The truth is, there can be even dozens of these layers formed in just one year. This is just one of many facts that disprove the dating methods used to get the old dates of things so that it proves their old earth theory.

Those who use the layer method for dating things never stop to think about how long it takes to lay down a layer. They assume that every layer takes the same amount of time to form. Their presuppositions lead them in a direction totally void of the truth. Wrong assumptions lead to wrong conclusions.

As Christians, we need to learn how to investigate these things. There is a fantastic website called Creation.com, that has over 12.000 articles you can download for free. They have done over 45 years of research on all of these fields. Just about anything you want to find is there.

Here is a simple example of how to handle someone who thinks the world is millions of years old. Take them outside in the evening, and have them look at the moon. Tell them to put their arm out and set the moon on their index finger. Did you know that NASA shows us that the moon gets about an inch and a half further from the earth every year. If the moon was millions of years old, it would have been long gone years ago, and we wouldn’t be here because it would have destroyed everything.

Looking at in reverse, if the moon is at its present distance now, where would it have been millions of years ago? There is what is called the Rosch limit, which determines the closest the moon could be to the earth. When we use this limit, and see where the moon is today, we see that the moon would be where it is in less than 10,000 years.

In Texas, at the Red River, there is a man’s footprint inside of a dinosaur footprint. They took some scientist to the area, and they refused to even look at it. They actually turned their backs to it. This is what it means to be willingly ignorant.

We are going to continue on this subject next week. I want to look at things like intelligent design and other things we can sink our teeth into. The Bible says we are to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in us.

We have proof for what we believe, and true science agrees with what the Bible says. It is our responsibility to study things out and be able to defend our beliefs.

Dr. Richard Lewontin, Professor of Genetics and Harvard, said, and I can’t give an exact quote, but here is the essence of it:

We take the side of evolutionary science, in spite of its absurdity in some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of it extravagant promises of health and life, because we cannot allow a divine foot in the door.

This statement shows that this isn’t an issue about facts, it is an issue about belief. If man came from evolution, then man decides truth. If God is Creator, then God will hold man accountable for how he lives in creation. It is an issue of accountability.

We are losing the argument and many of our children are losing their faith. What can we do about this?

We have two world views, one that accepts the authority of the Word of God, and the other that does not. The battle is really for the mind.

Earlier I mentioned the creation of the Grand Canyon. When someone says that it takes millions of years to create something like this, we can take them to Mt. St. Helen. After the eruption took place, the terrain had changed. There is one canyon there, called Engineer’s Canyon, that didn’t exist prior to the eruption of Mt. St. Helen. It is 90 ft. deep and 150 to 180 ft. wide. The engineers started pumping the water out of Spirit Lake, and the canyon was formed in about 29 months. There is another canyon that is called the Little Grand Canyon. It is about 1/40th the size of the Grand Canyon. The bottom of this canyon is Basalt rock, some of the hardest rock known to man. More than 30 ft. was carve in less than three hours in one day. It doesn’t take millions of years to carve out a canyon, it just takes the right conditions.

The evolutionist, as we have seen, wants to remove God, so they can’t consider the fact that canyons can be carved out in a short time if the conditions are right. This is why, with so much evidence supporting it, they can’t accept a worldwide flood. We have only looked at the example of Mt. St. Helen, but there are many examples of this throughout the world.

Here is a video clip of Kent Hovind giving one of the best answers to the question, where did God come from.

With this, let me close for today. We will be looking at the same subject next week.
