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.

Is Evolution a Lie?

is evolution a lie highlights

By Brian Thomas, M.S. | Institution of Creation Research

In the view of modern culture, how could anyone be so foolish as to doubt evolution? After all, its defenders point to all kinds of examples to back their beliefs. A thoughtful look, though, at two categories of examples—past and present—reveals how far the grand story of evolution strays from reality.

First, it helps to know what the word “evolution” means to the person using it. If it merely means that certain animal traits change between generations, that’s hard to refute. But most people use the term to recap a drawn-out cosmic story of how hydrogen formed stars, stars formed planets, living cells formed on planets, and single-celled life developed into every living thing on Earth. Now, that’s tough to defend—but many still try.

Using Bible history to interpret the rocks and landscapes

fig 2 geological model simplified

Tas Walker | Creation.com

Geologists have long recognized that history is fundamental to their discipline. Traditionally, the science has been split into two parts—physical geology and historical geology. Before we can make sense of the rocks we need to know what happened in the past—we need a reliable history of the earth.

The Fossil Record and the Fall of Darwin’s Last Icon

FossilRecord 001

This article is taken from the proceedings of the symposium ‘The Two Shall Become One’ held in Rome in September 2015, jointly sponsored by Human Life International and the Kolbe Center for the Study of Creation.

by John M. Wynne 

Introduction

Depictions of human evolution may be the most recognized of all Darwinian “icons,” as most people have been exposed to images such as those in Figure 1 since their youth.  As recent fossil finds have transformed this icon into a complex timeline, as in Figure 2, paleoanthropologists continue to insist that the strength of the fossil evidence mandates viewing human evolution as a scientific fact.[1]  Even as other Darwinian claims have been increasingly abandoned, the staunch defense of this last icon has continued and intensified.

This paper explains that Darwin’s last icon has now fallen.  In other words, a critical review of the fossil record using the information in the scientific literature leads to the conclusion that there is no viable evolutionary sequence leading from a common ancestor with the chimpanzee to modern humans.

Evolution, Not What They Once Said

Darwin and Nownodosaur fossil canadian mine face.adapt .1900.1 300x200

The armored dinosaur fossil preserved in exquisite detail unearthed in a western Canadian oil sand mine highlights the new daunting challenges facing the theory of evolution. This stunningly preserved fossil is shattering long-standing paradigms.

“The more I look at it,” said Michael Greshko science writer for National Geographic, “the more mind-boggling it becomes.”

Caleb Brown, a paleobiologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum where the fossil was placed on exhibit in August, explained to Greshko, “We don’t just have a skeleton… We have a dinosaur as it would have been.” The museum is host to one of the largest dinosaur collections in the world.

Now the fossil, known as Borealopelta markmitchelli (pictured), has the evolution industry struggling to place a new species in the mythical world of biological evolution, not what they once said it should be.

Harvard-Educated Scientist Gives 4 New Claims Against Darwin

Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson a Research Biologist and Speaker published an article on Crosswalk giving four reasons Darwin's on the origin of species is no longer a "settled" point of view

1. The number of known species grew dramatically.
2. On the question of the origin of species, the most important field of science was born.
3. Creationist ideas matured.
4. Modern genetic discoveries turned the tables on the origins debate.

The Creation Account in the Holy Bible and the Atheistic Alternate – Evolution

Greene Hollowell 2012 150AGreene Hollowell

I believe in the Creation Account given in the Bible book of Genesis. God, through Jesus, created all there is in heaven and earth during a 6 day period. The context in Genesis indicates a day of 24 hours. The 24 hour day is affirmed in Exodus 20, Commandment 4 of the 10 Commandments. In addition the Bible provides times and dates that allow the time of creation to be establish at approximately 4,000 years before Christ.

The majority of scientist and biology teachers do not believe the Creation Account but substitute an alternate idea of the creation of the universe involving billions of years of random mutations, natural selection and survival of the fittest, all started by THE BIG BANG. The absolute key of evolution is that Creator God was not involved in the process. They insist that this process is not just a theory but a law of science, like the law of gravity. Most of these believers are atheistic or are compromised Christians who have to toe the line of the evolutionist to keep their jobs.

Big Bang Scientists: Universe Shouldn't Exist

Jake Hebert, Ph.D. *
Evidence for Creation
Institute for Creation Research

Recently, the asymmetry matter/antimatter problem, one of the most serious objections to the Big Bang model, just got a little worse.1,2 The asymmetry problem involves the fact that there is very little antimatter in the universe. Antimatter is just like normal matter, except that some of its properties are opposite that of normal matter. For instance, the antimatter equivalent to the electron is called the positron. The positron has the same mass as an electron but with a positive charge, rather than negative. Likewise, the antimatter counterpart to a proton is the anti-proton which has the same mass as a proton but with a negative charge.

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!

Answers in Genesis

Answers in <a href="http://classic.biblegateway.com/passage/index.php?search=Genesis+500;&version=51;&interface=print" onclick="window.open(this.href,this.target,WStyle1);return false;" rel="nofollow" title="READVERSE Genesis 500">Genesis 500</a> 1

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.
