Science and The Bible VS Evolution

Displaying pixabay.comOn several recent posts, there have been many that believe in evolution, that have made comments against what I have written or against the comments Christians have posted. It is clear that they think that if you believe in creation, then you don’t believe in science. That is not true. Science has made our lives better and easier in many ways. Certainly, much of what I was posting from the Bible concerning nature, medical, sanitation, and the universe would be considered scientific. There have been many great scientists that believed in creation and the Bible. They saw no conflict between the two. Scientists such as Isaac Newton, Leonardo Da Vinci, Francis Bacon, Samuel Morse, Blaise Pascal, Albert Einstein, and Galileo, just to name a few.

Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.“ – Albert Einstein, 1941

Evolution, on the other hand, is a scientific theory that has never been proven but has been taught in our universities, as if it was a proven fact. Tens of thousands of people believe evolution is a proven fact, simply because that is what they were taught. Most students accept anything their professor say as absolute truth.

Physicist Mark Singham, speaking on the trust that college students have for their professors and in what they are being taught.

“And I use that trust to effectively brainwash them…….We only introduce arguments and evidence that supports the currently accepted theories and omit or gloss over any evidence to the contrary.”

Not all scientists believe in evolution. The number that is rejecting evolution is growing every day. There are roughly one thousand scientists that align themselves with the Institute for Creation Research. No new scientific papers are being published that would support evolution. However, there is a constant flow of papers being published that contain new discoveries that show evolution is impossible.

    “I could find not a single published scientific paper reporting the evidence that supports the fundamental requirement of evolution that new meaningful genetic information arises by chance. Instead, I have found much-published data showing that it is impossible for new purposeful genetic information of any significance for evolution to arise by chance.” (Dr. John Ashton, Evolution Impossible)

      “The new studies in molecular science are showing that each class of species at a molecular level is unique, isolated, and unlinked by intermediates. Thus molecules, like fossils, have failed to provide the elusive intermediates so long sought by evolutionary biology.” (Michael Denton, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis)

Part 5 – Supernatural Facts in the Bible

Supernatural Facts of the Bible proving the Scriptures were God inspired

In Genesis, God said that male babies should be circumcised when they are eight days old. Genesis 17:12 “For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised,”  Medical science has now discovered that this is the day that the coagulating factor in the blood, called prothrombin, is the highest. It reaches its peak on the eighth day, then drops. Medical science has also discovered that this is when the human body’s immune system is at its peak.

 Today we are told that eating fat is bad for our hearts and can lead to prostate cancer. God said not to eat fat thousands of years ago Leviticus 7:22-23 ‘The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘Do not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats.” God also instructed the Israelites not to eat pork; we know that pork has to be thoroughly cooked because it can carry parasites. God gave his people many dietary instructions. Although we can see the reasons for them today, God’s people at the time, had to trust him for a reason.

 Leviticus 13:46 “As long as they have the disease they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp.”  God gave the Israelite’s laws concerning quarantine 3500 years ago. Modern man did not instigate laws of quarantine until the seventeenth century. Millions of lives could have been saved during the black plague alone if people had listened to God’s command concerning quarantine.

The Bible is proven accurate though it’s prophecy that has already been fulfilled. And by the archaeology finds that have documented its accuracy. Nearly one-quarter of the Bible is made up of prophecy.

There are approximately 2500 predictions in the Bible. About 2000 of these predictions have already been fulfilled. Many down to minor details. More are being fulfilled as we watch the approach of the end times. The remaining prophecies will be fulfilled during and after the tribulation.

None of the books from the world’s counterfeit religions have even dared to make such prophecies as the Bible contains, for who but God, knows the future.

Archaeology has continued to prove the Bible true. Historical scholars claimed there was no proof that King Herod, Pontius Pilate, Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar,  Hezekiah, Darius, and King David ever existed. But archaeological discoveries in recent years have proved they and many more biblical characters did exist. Archaeology has never proved the Bible false, rather it has substantiated the scriptures.  Archaeologists continue to find cities and places mentioned in the Bible, such as in 2004 when they discovered the Siloam Pool where Jesus healed the blind man. And in September of 2015, the biblical city of Sodom was discovered. Excavations show that the city came to a sudden fiery end, just as portrayed in the Bible. In fact, all archaeology finds have agreed with the historical biblical accounts as recorded in the Bible. There has not been a single artifact or discovery made that would disprove what is written in The Word of God.

 An honest look at the scriptures can leave no doubt, but that the writings were God inspired.

Part 4 – Supernatural Facts of The Bible

Supernatural Facts of the Bible proving the Scriptures were God inspired

The Ark’s design was thousands of years ahead of its time. (Genesis 6:14-16) The Ark was to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. It was to have three decks with a combined area of 101,250 square feet, and a capacity of over one and a half million cubic feet. It was a vessel of over 43,000 tons, and nearly equal in size to the Titanic.

 In 1609 a Holland company built a ship after the pattern of the Ark. It revolutionized the shipbuilding industry. Today most ships are still built to similar proportions. There is no way that Noah would have had the knowledge to build the Ark, without the divine instructions from God. The vessel that Noah built was very different and much larger than boats of that era. The boats of Noah’s time were small flat-bottomed boats powered by oars or a combination of oars and a fixed sail.

 In comparison, the Ark that Noah built would be much closer in design and size to the Titanic, than to the boats of his time.  Continue reading

Scientists Admit: The Fossil Record Doesn’t Show Evolution Has Occurred

The fossil record in the sedimentary rocks is supposed to show the evolution of life to more advanced and complex life forms, over vast spans of time. Evolutionist looks to the fossils as proof that evolution took place. As Geologist Carl Dunbar stated:

“Fossils provide the only historical, documentary evidence that life has evolved from simpler to more and more complex forms.”

However, in the billions of fossils, there is not a single example of one species transitioning into another. There are no transitional fossils. Even the evolutionist admit that there are none. I include several quotes by evolutionists later in this post.

Coelacanth – An Evolutionary Embarrassment

Coelacanth – The fish that was supposed to have climbed out of the water millions of years ago is still alive and still a fish. 

    In the winter of 1938, a fishing boat off the coast of southern Africa, dragged from the Indian Ocean a fish that supposedly lived 350 million years ago and was thought to be extinct for 70 million years. The Coelacanth were considered to be ancestral to land vertebrates. It was considered an index fossil. Any rock which contained an Coelacanth fossil was believed to be 70,000,000 to 400,000,000 years old. Paleontologists had confidently pronounced the coelacanth was extinct before man had evolved. Yet, humans and coelacanths are living together in the present world. Another one was caught, thousands of miles away in Indonesia in 1998.  Several have been caught since.

    The discovery of the Coelacanth was an embarrassment to the evolutionist, in that the Coelacanth was considered to be the chief candidate to represent a transition species from fish to amphibian. Supposedly one hundred million years ago, the Coelacanth walked out of the water on its fins, grew legs and became an amphibian. Millions of students had been taught that this fish was the ancestor of all land creatures, including man. However, they are still the same as they were supposedly a hundred million years ago. The evolutionist believed the Coelacanth lived in shallow water, ready to crawl out onto land, when in fact, it was a deep sea fish. Its discovery was a blow to the evolution theory as the following statements show.

    “Throughout the hundreds of millions of years the coelacanths have kept the same form and structure. Here is one of the great mysteries of evolution.” (Jacques Millot, The Coelacanth, Scientific American)

    “The brain of a 90-pound coelacanth weighs less than 50 grams [0.11 ounces] —that is, no more than one 15,000th of the body weight. No present-day vertebrate that we know of has so small a brain in relation to its size.” (Jacques Millot, The Coelacanth, Scientific American)

   “…..We never saw any of them walk, and it appears the fish is unable to do so.” (Coelacanths: The Fish That Time Forgot, National Geographic)  

    The coelacanth, the fish that the evolutionists claimed walked out of the water and became one of the first amphibian, is alive and well today. But it is still a fish, just as God made it.

The Dinosaur to Bird Fallacy

    Evolutionists claim birds evolved from reptiles. That is quite a jump from one species to the next. From a ground crawling creature, to a marvelous flying creature with a completely different DNA, and no real evidence of any transitional form in between. Where is the proof of such a jump in evolution?

    Evolutionists claim that Archaeopteryx is a featured dinosaur. A transition between reptiles and birds. For decades, paleontologists claimed the Archaeopteryx was the original first bird. Of the few Archaeopteryx fossils, at least two of them have proven to be forgeries. Apparently a thin layer of cement was spread on a fossil of a chicken size dinosaur, called Compsognathus. Bird feathers were then imprinted into the wet cement.

     For such a great transition, from dinosaur to bird, there should have been great numbers of fossils with scales turning into feathers and forelimbs turning into wings. If millions of years were required for this transition, where are the millions of fossils documenting it. There are none as evolutionist William Swinton admits, although he still believes it took place:

“The origin of birds is largely a matter of deduction. There is no fossil evidence of the stages through which the remarkable change from reptile to bird was achieved.”   

   Evolutionist Alan Feduccia, a world authority on birds at the University of North Carolina says: “It’s biophysically impossible to evolve flight from such large bipeds with foreshortened forelimbs and heavy, balancing tails”—exactly the wrong anatomy for flight……..In my opinion, the theropod (Archaeopteryx) origin of birds will be the greatest embarrassment of paleontology in the 20th century.”   

Feduccia proclaimed: “Paleontologists have tried to turn Archaeopteryx into an earth-bound, feathered dinosaur. But it’s not. It is a bird, a perching bird. And no amount of ‘paleobabble’ is going to change that”  

    University of Kansas paleontologist Larry Martin speaking about two fossils found in china, which were being claimed to be featured theropods, stated: “You have to put this in perspective. To the people who wrote the paper, the chicken would be a featured dinosaur.”

    “As further proof that Archaeopteryx is not a transition species, fossils of two modern birds have recently been found in rock strata, dated by evolutionists, as being much older than Archaeopteryx.” (Fossil Bird Shakes Evolutionary Hypotheses, Nature, Vol. 322)

    Undoubtedly, Archaeopteryx will continue to be proclaimed as a “missing link.” For the evolutionists, it is the ONLY possible solution to the question of how birds evolved. They have nothing else. They have nothing, because there are no known missing links.

“In that great window to the past–the fossil record–we only find distinct plant and animal kinds, with no transitional forms. With the exception of creatures that have become extinct…. ALL life forms found in the fossils are just like those presently alive! To say it again: All non-extinct plant and animal fossils are the same as creatures now alive on the earth. There is NO evidence of evolution in the fossils.” (Evolution Encyclopedia Vol. 2, Part 1)  

Sadly, given that Archaeopteryx is a mainstay in biology textbooks, students will continue to be mislead by this fallacious claim.

This will be the first in weekly posts exposing evolution. That is, if there is enough interest in the posts. I have an amazing amount of material from my book research that I would love to share.
