This is week 5 out of  13. Eight more to go! *Thanks to my wonderful husband who assists me.

Update: A Darwin supporter (see comments) tells me the Darwin quotes I’ve shared, which I quote from another source, are taken out of context. His rebuttal is shared in the comments, but I haven’t verified that he is quoting Darwin’s exact words either. But suffice it to say, the evidence speaks loud and clear that there is a Creator behind what we see…people, animals, trees, the universe. It didn’t happen by chance – no matter what scientist may say otherwise.

Can evolution and God coexist? Well, not if you believe Genesis 1 which gives an account of 6 (literal) days of Creation…and on the seventh God rested from his work.

The theory of evolution involves  a “time” when there was nothing and then a Big Bang and then somewhere along the line we have an amoeba that slowly over millions (or is it billions?) transformed into anything (or everything) including you and I {Long story short}. I mean, okay, so somewhere in there monkeys became man, right?

When you get right down to it there are a couple problems with the theory of evolution. First, its just a theory, not a proven fact and yet is it the standard (last I knew)  accepted- scientific teaching for public schools.  There have also been evolutionary claims that have been proven false and last I heard those were still being taught as “fact”. I’m not up to date on what the schools are teaching but thats the last thing I heard on on it.

Second, there are no transitional forms to prove evolution.  Where are the birds with a half a right wing and no left wing, where are…just fill in the blank. Whatever “was” between this and that…there ain’t none! There are creatures, including us, who cannot survive without certain things we have right now in our physical completeness.

Charles Darwin gave the description of what would falsify his own theory when he made the comment I have shown below in the box.  Oh and the discovery of the “cell”  is what proved Charles wrong.

“If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive slight modifications my theory would absolutely break down.” ~ Charles Darwin

I really believe that what it all boils down to for many folks is their unwillingness to admit that God exists, that God created them because they don’t want to think they are accountable to him. Read Romans chapter one. Its a blow to those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. God has some serious things to say to them.

Joel and I watched a 3 dvd series recently called “Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution” (I found one of the dvds in our church video library but then Joel found them at our local library too). These dvd’s are enjoyable to watch and very scientific. I highly recommend looking for them at your local library too.

“Such simple instincts as bees making a beehive could be sufficient to overthrow my whole theory.” ~ Charles Darwin

Science is suppose to be about finding out the truth. Not running from it. Not making up silly theories (Darwin’s Tree) and calling them facts.

Are you afraid of the truth? I’m sure many folks are. I’m quite sure of it.

Dr. Jobe Martin, a former agnostic, evolutionist, dentist, and professor was challenged by two of his students years ago to investigate the “evolution of the tooth” and to look at the “assumptions” that were made. The results rocked Dr. Martin’s world and it took him 5 years to grapple with the truth of what he was seeing. Dr. Martin shares incredible scientific details about creature after creature that “defys evolution”. Some of those creatures are…

  • Whales and how there could be no “transitional” form for them that would have allowed them to survive. They had to have all their faculties or they couldn’t have lived long enough to eventually “evolve” them.
  • Plovers and how they “just know” to lay their eggs in Alaska and leave their baby chicks behind while they fly to Hawaii. They don’t come back for their chicks and yet their chicks “know” to fly to Hawaii themselves.
  • Fire flies and glow worms use “cold light” and this is something scientists haven’t figured out how to duplicate.
  • The Bombardier Beetle is a wonderful example. He mixes chemicals and shoots them at his predators. He produces a way to do this without blowing himself up. I don’t do this example justice here, get the dvds and see for yourself. He could not have survived “evolution”. He would have blown himself up long before he couldn’t evolved all his parts necessary to be as he is today.
  • The Giraffe and his long neck. Bending  over for a drink at the water hole would have meant blowing out his brains.

Doesn’t it just make sense that it took a Designer…a Creator to put us and these incredible creatures together?
There’s so much much more. I’ve really have  just touched on the topic. I know why I believe what I believe.  Why do you believe what you believe?
