Debunking Evolution, Part 1.
Sunday, April 25, 2010
Evolution is a philosophy masquerading as a science.
GEN 1:1, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
COL 1:16-17 says, For by means of Him [in context Jesus Christ] were all [paz] things created [ktizo: the word can mean to completely change or transform something, or to create from no pre-existing materials here the later is used]
in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible [this is the unseen spirit world but also we can draw the conclusion that is means down to the smallest atom], whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers.
ECC 3:11, He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.
How the Universe Stars
and the earth came into being.
-Macroevolution - The claim that all life formed from earlier organized non-life and was done so through forms of mutation, natural selection, and enormous amounts of time.
-Microevolution - The limited variation that takes place in a species.
PSA 14:1, “Only a fool says in his heart there is no God.”
MAT 13:13-14, “This is why I speak to them in parables: Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the
prophecy of Isaiah: ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.’”
“When it comes to the origin of life on this earth, there are only two possibilities: creation or spontaneous generation (evolution). There is no third way. Spontaneous generation was disproved 100 years ago, but that leads us only to one other conclusion: that of supernatural creation. We cannot accept that on philosophical grounds (personal reasons); therefore, we choose to believe the impossible: that life arose spontaneously by pure chance.”
“I think you can have both. I think evolution can -- you’re getting me way out of my lane here. I’m just a simple president. But it’s, I think that God created the earth, created the world; I think the creation of the world is so mysterious it requires something as large as an almighty and I don’t think it’s incompatible with the scientific proof that there is evolution.”
2 Pe 3:6-9, Knowing this first, that there shall come in the LAST DAYS scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.
He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
PSA 19:1 “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”
COL 1:16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
Panspermia: Theory suggests that life seeds came from outer space and planets exchanged life. Panspermia literally means seeds everywhere.
Pas or pan = all.
Spermia = seed or seeds literally seeds everywhere
There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God and Jesus Christ.
Answers to such basic questions as
Where did we come from?
What is the purpose of life?
Why are we here?
John 18:33-39 Therefore Pilate entered again into the Praetorium, and summoned Jesus and said to Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own initiative, or did others tell you about Me?”
Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered You to me; what have You done?” Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world.
If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”
Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”
Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?”
And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and said to them, “I find no guilt in Him.”
“I am the way, and the
truth, and the life;
no one comes to the
Father but through Me.”
