Creation
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.

I 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 hold water.

There 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).

Second: 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.

There are several notable findings that have recently begun cause scientists to re-think there “facts”.

  • In 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.
  • Several 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.
  • Fossils of shell-bearing sea creatures have been found on mountain tops (from the flood).

My 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.

Here 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.

Please read my thoughts on Truth as well...>
