I take the time at every performance, to speak
about creation. It is always a hot topic. Surprisingly,
many Christians support the theory of evolution.
A “theory” that Christians absolutely
cannot agree with.
have a science background. I majored in Biology
at the University of Missouri - St. Louis, and
studied ecology, field biology, populations,
distributions, etc. At the heart of each of
these topics is evolution. I studied evolution.
I believed it. I told my friends and family
about it. I thought it was ridiculous not to
believe in it. Years later I came to my senses
and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
I traded in my Ecology books for a King James
Bible and I learned the truth. I came to realize
that the theory of evolution has more holes
in it than a spaghetti strainer. It just can’t
are two reasons that evolution is so widely
accepted (even among Christians):
First: The age of the Earth.
It is impossible for our minds to fully grasp
the concept of eternity, and almost as impossible
to grasp 6 billion years. That is what we are
told; the earth is 6 billion years old. Our
children are taught this in school (one of the
reasons we home school), we are taught this
practically every time we turn on the TV. It
is very believable. Even tiny changes could
amount to quite a lot over millions and millions
of years. Darwinian evolution becomes much easier
to swallow, if you consider tiny changes in
species were made over billions of years. The
problem is the earth is not 6 billion years
old. There are many scientific facts that point
to a “young Earth” (rate of erosion
of the earth’s continents, the rate of
decay of the earth’s magnetic field, the
number of people on earth, low number of type
II supernovas, lack of helium in the atmosphere,
and many more). Many Christian believe in an
“old Earth” interpreting the six
days of creation in Genesis as day “ages”.
I believe the Earth is 6000-10,000 years old
(you should see the look on most peoples faces
when I say this).
The misconception that scientists are always
right about science. The “experts”
on the Discovery Channel and National Geographic
state evolutionary concepts as hard facts. Biology
text books teach evolutionary dreams as reality.
But since these notions come to us from the
“experts” it is hard for most of
us to dispute.
are several notable findings that have recently
begun cause scientists to re-think there “facts”.
the 1980’s, in Bernifal cave in France,
a carving was found of a dinosaur. Yes, man
and dinosaur did at one time walk the Earth
together. (The French government has closed
the cave and vigorously arrests trespassers.)
Remember the several of the so-called missing
links? Neanderthal, Homo habilus, Peking Man,
and Piltdown Man have been shown to have been
hoaxes. You probably didn’t hear much
about that on the evening news. (Satan has
a way of covering his tracks) Many of the
skull fossils were based on a tiny fragment
of jaw bone and the rest sculpted from clay
at the imagination of the sculptor. There
is also an explanation for the legitimate
skull fossils: The sloping forehead, the pronounced
brow ridge, the protruding jaw… This
is what man would have looked like in the
days when man was living 800-900 years. The
bible tells us long life spans were common.
years ago a dinosaur fossil was uncovered
that still had soft tissue. Even the pro-evolution
archeologists that studied the fossil said
it could not be more that 10,000 – 15,000
years old. We have always been told that dinosaurs
went extinct 70 million years ago.
of shell-bearing sea creatures have been found
on mountain tops (from the flood).
point is this, don’t take it lightly.
Life on this planet didn’t come about
by accident through time and chance. It was
created by the one and only Almighty Triune
God. It is exactly as it is described in the
Bible. Common traits don’t necessarily
point to common ancestor, they point to common
designer. You may have heard that the DNA in
humans is 98% similar to the DNA in chimps.
True. Does this point to common ancestors? No.
It points to a common designer. The Lord God.
When you see a painting hanging on the wall
you know that it had a painter. Paint didn’t
just accidentally splash on the canvas and form
a beautiful painting by chance. In the same
way we can look at creation and know that there
was a creator. The Bible says, “The Heavens
declare the glory of God, and the skies proclaim
the work of His hands. Day after day they pour
forth speech, and night after night they display
knowledge.” (Psalm 19: 1,2). Creation
is self-explanatory, it is way too complex to
have arranged itself.
is my challenge: The next time someone
mentions evolution or an event that happened
millions of years ago, speak up. It may be in
line at the grocery store, or waiting at the
dentist’s office. My guess is it won’t
be more than a couple of days. When it comes
up – shoot back (the truth in love) the
idea that there is another explanation. It is
a great opportunity to evangelize.
