Creationism

Promoting Creationism as Revealed in the Book of Genesis, in Six 24-Hour Days

Refuting Darwinian Evolution, Theistic Evolution, Gap and Age-Day Theories, and Progressive Creationism 

Introduction: Creationism and evolution have been in opposition ever since the latter’s introduction by Charles Darwin in 1858.  Their conflicting views come as no surprise since creationism is derived from Christianity, while evolution is claimed to be derived from science. Christianity revolves around the concept of faith in Jesus Christ, and science revolves around the pursuit of evidence in nature. In light of today’s growing focus on science, it is essential to address the issue. Through this treatise, we hope to show that God is the true creator of all life on earth and that evolution is a biased and illogical explanation for the creation and sustaining of life.

How serious are the consequences of believing in evolution?

cbabHank Hanegraaff, CRI

More consequences for society hinge on the cosmogenic myth of evolution than on any other. Among them are the sovereignty of self, the sexual revolution, and survival of the fittest. 

This article is from Hank Hanegraaff, The Complete Bible Answer Book—Collector’s Edition(Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2008) Get the Book

First, the supposed death of God in the nineteenth century ushered in an era in which humans proclaimed themselves sovereigns of the universe. Humanity’s perception of autonomy led to sacrificing truth on the altar of subjectivism. Ethics and morals were no longer determined on the basis of objective standards but rather by the size and strength of the latest lobbying group. With no enduring reference point, societal norms were reduced to mere matters of preference.

Evolution? Impossible!

We’re sure you’ve heard this claim before, probably hundreds of times: “Science has proven evolution is fact.” It’s like a strange Darwinian chant that emanates from atheist blogs and secular universities. Too bad (for them) it’s not true.

In fact, refuting evolution doesn’t require complicated equations or lab experiments—though those do the job, too. Just remember the two fundamental flaws we can use to show evolution to be, well, not even scientifically viable.

Where’d You Get Your Information, Bub?

Everything that makes up your body requires genetic information. You’ve got hands and feet because your genes code for it. The same is true for any creature—dogs, camels, you name it.

The genetic information in humans varies from the information in animals, plants, and so on. Seems obvious, so why point it out? Because for animal kind A to somehow “presto-change-o” into animal kind B, the information’s got to change. A fish doesn’t just morph into an amphibian without something changing in the genes. It would have to gain some new information.

The Motor of Life Design in Nature

Dr Joe Francis | Answers in Genesis

Bacteria depend on tail-like structures called flagella to get around. But they’re not alone. Every creature, including most cells in your body, depends on similar structures to survive.

Inside your body are trillions of little hair-like whips attached to most of your cells. They are constantly moving, pushing debris out of your body and sensing the world around them. A couple of centuries ago, biologists assumed they were useless remnants of bacterial evolution. Now medical researchers have found those ideas were dead wrong. These structures are essential for life and are found in virtually every organism—from algae and plants to reptiles and mammals.

The complexity of these structures, which contain functional motors, astounds evolutionists, who cannot explain how so many intricate, interacting parts could arise together. Yet they remain doggedly certain an answer is within reach. Just one problem—they also have to explain how these motors adopted such different essential roles within each creature on the planet! How could creatures survive the development of critical systems by trial and error?

The False Teachings of Evolution Part I

ForFortress of Faith Radio by Tom Wallace discuss world views on creation vs evolution.

Listen to the program HERE ( OR DOWLOAD THE MP3 HERE) and below are the “show notes” from this program, so their are typos, etc.

I am calling the month of January the Christian Apologetic month. We will be looking at how Christians ought to defend their faith against false teachings. The first area we will address is the false teaching of evolution. God told us how we got here. He created us, the world, and everything in it, in six literal days. The world tells us that we got here by evolution, and it took millions and millions of years. There are two different world views, and we, as Christians need to have an answer for what we believe.

Theistic Evolution Undermines Our Christian Faith

David_Dewitt_web

Theistic evolution is a significant threat to the Christian church.  It undermines the very foundation of the Christian faith and causes people to doubt the truth of Scripture.

I grew up as a theistic evolutionist.  I was interested in science, and was an undergraduate biochemistry major.  I believed in God and heard that he was the Creator on Sunday, but heard evolution all the other days of the week.  I did what seemed the only logical thing that I think so many Christians also do, and that is to try to blend the two together.  So I combined them, thinking that evolution was simply the process that God used to create, but that is so wrong.  I think people make that compromise because they do not know all of the scientific evidence that calls the theory of evolution into question and they also have not been made aware of the major theological/biblical problems that it generates.

Biblical and Scientific Defense of Our Young Earth

Ron Bessette 150

I would like to explain why I believe that the earth and the universe are about 6000 years old.  My premise is that the Bible is the Word of God.  As the Word of God, the Bible is completely trustworthy.  Because it is completely trustworthy, I can accept the plain reading of it.  The plain reading of the Bible leads me to accept the historical narrative found in the book of Genesis.  I also believe that if the historical record in the Bible is not accurate, then I would have no reason to trust the theology or the morality of the Bible because it can no longer be considered the Word of God.

Letter: Creator is 'missing link' between apes and man

Letter to the Editor by Larry T. Ingels, was published in the Free Lance Star Fredericksburg and the interesting comments following the letter

Almost human? Every few years there is an “amazing discovery” concerning a claimed ancient connection between apes and man.

Just recently [“Bones found in cave reveal new human relative,” Sept. 11], there was a widely publicized announcement about the findings in a burial site inside a cave in South Africa. Another “atheist” paleontologist proudly announced that he has found a “missing link” between apes and man, thousands and thousands of years old.

Christians that Question the Bible Concerning Creation

genesis

When God presented the account of how He created the world and universe in the Book of Genesis, He gave an explanation that was straight forward and easy to understand. We, of course have no idea of what processes took place when He spoke or when He stretched His hands. But He gave an account that indicated the work was accomplished in a period of what we know was 6 days.

The Origins of Humans

Dr. Dan Reynolds writes "On the Origin of Humans. One of the key issues in the creation-evolution debate is the origin of humans, Homo sapiens. What we think about the origin of our own species has a dramatic impact on our morality and worldview because it answers the questions of who and what we are and why we exist. The secular and biblical views of our origins are diametrically opposed and must come to totally different conclusions about our place in the universe. Secular scientists tell us that the evidence that we evolved from a common ancestor with primates is “overwhelming.” But just how good is that evidence?

The Origins of Humans

Dan Reynolds PhD | TASC - Triangle Association for the Science of Creation

One of the key issues in the creation-evolution debate is the origin of humans, Homo sapiens.

What we think about the origin of our own species has a dramatic impact on our morality and wordlview because it answers the questions of who and what we are and why we exist. The secular and biblical views of our origins are diametrically opposed and must come to totally different conclusions about our place in the universe. Secular scientists tell us that the evidence that we evolved from a common ancestor with primates is “overwhelming.” But just how good is that evidence? The Bible teaches we were made in God’s image and designed to have fellowship with Him both now and forever. Recent results in the field of genetics have been remarkably in accord with the biblical model for human origins and inimical to evolutionary scenarios. Here we will compare the biblical and secular models for human origins and discuss recent science that supports the biblical view and/or discredits the evolutionary view. Specifically, we will discuss “junk DNA” as “evidence” for common ancestry, the real percent similarity of the human and chimpanzee genomes, the alleged historical fusion of two primate chromosomes that “prove” humans share common ancestry with primates, genetic evidence that Homo sapiens and Neanderthals interbred and were hence the same species, and genetic evidence that is consistent with Adam and Eve as well as Noah and his family.

Celebrate a Creation Sunday this February 15, 2015 - Not an Evolution Sunday!

Creation Sunday 2015

Dear Pastor,

For many Christians, holidays are a time to reflect upon faith – and stir it up by way of remembrance (2 Peter 1:13). At Christmas, we celebrate the incarnation of Jesus Christ. On Good Friday, we reflect upon the awful price that paid for our sins. On Resurrection Sunday (Easter), we praise God for the risen Savior and the promise of eternal life.

But in recent years pastors in Christian churches around the world have begun celebrating a different sort of holiday, Evolution Sunday, literally preaching Darwin from the pulpit. Unlike truly Christian holidays, this one erodes faith and undermines the Bible, replacing the Genesis narrative with a “sacred story” of suffering, thorns, disease, and death – all in the world before sin – with a dash of Goddidit to disarm objectors. Evolution Sunday began in 2006 to promote evolution among religious communities and convince them that belief in God is compatible with evolution. Those who promote Evolution Sunday insist that the church must adapt biblical doctrine to millions of years of microbes-to-man evolution, or perish.

Evolution and Creation- Both Are Unbelievable!

Greene Hollowell 2012 150A

 

 The majority of scientist and biology teachers say the Universe came about from nothing, accidentally by random chance; that everything evolved from a Big Bang and God was not involved. They insist that Evolution is more than a theory: it is a fact! Their authority comes from their having earned a PhD in some scientific field, which they feel gives them a superior ability to make determinations about the history of our Origins.
