Straight Talk, Creation v. Random Chance… Rodna Epley

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Francis Crick (Scientist, Biologist, Physiologist and outspoken Atheist (1916-2004) who is credited with co-discovering, along with James Watson, the double-helix structure of the DNA strand, made the following statement.

“Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved.”

Really? A Darwinistic Evolutionist telling the science community that they must constantly remind themselves that the things they see are not created but have evolved. So why do scientists purposefully go against what common sense tells us is true about life? Everything that has life in it reveals that only a Designer could make such complex mechanical systems.

Reminds me of what Paul the Apostle once said a couple thousand years ago…

Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

And what the said Apostle John about Jesus…

John 1:3-4 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

How about atheistic scientists stop reminding themselves to continually hold a presuppositional view that is philosophical in nature and stubbornly wants to deny God. The evidence continually reveals a Designer in literally everything living that is studied under a microscope or in a lab!

Who can watch this video and still believe there’s no Designer behind life? Randomness didn’t create the complexities of life. Randomness could create nothing but chaos.

Genesis 1:31 – Genesis 2:2 Creation Completed

Posted in Creation with tags , , , , , on December 7, 2011 by paulthepoke

Genesis 1:31 God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Look at the word all or “kol” in the Hebrew. As defined by Strong’s, it means: all, the whole, any, each, every, anything, totality, everything. Who made it all?

Notice, it is God who made it. The grammar in the Hebrew is stated as a simple action verb. God made it, straight forward and no tricks. It is just not complicated. This did not occur by random chance. This was orchestrated by God. The creation account is complete at this point. Species do not mutate from here. There are no transitional species noted.

“Not one change of species into another is on record… we cannot prove that a single species has been changed.” –Charles Darwin, My Life & Letters, Volume 1, p. 210.

All of this is “good” or “towb” in the Hebrew. It is defined in Strong’s Concordance as: good, pleasant, agreeable (to the senses); pleasant (to the higher nature); rich, valuable in estimation; appropriate, becoming.

The completion of this day is not just good but very good. Previous days in the creation week were “good”, but at the end of day six, it is exceedingly good. See the word “very” or “m@`od” in the Hebrew. It means: exceedingly, much. In today’s vernacular, amazing, abundant, or awesome would be possible descriptions.

And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. The sun sets and the next day starts.

Genesis 2:1-2a Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done; …

Genesis 1:26-27 God Created Man

Posted in Creation with tags , , , , on September 29, 2011 by paulthepoke

Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Man is made in the image of God. This point is made twice in the opening statement of verse 26. The point that humanity is made in the image of God is repeated a third time at the end of the passage in verse 27.

God introduces the idea of creating man in verse 26. “Let us make man…” In verse 27, He repeats on three occasions, that He created. God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God is pretty emphatic that He is the One who made man. This was not left to random chance and primordial slime.

Note, the text does not say that an ape was made millions of years ago and over time it evolved into homo erectus then to neanderthal and eventually into modern day man. We still have monkeys, apes, and man, but no transitional species? The transitional species are extinct? How convenient. There is no statement in the Bible of “transitional species” or “missing links” any where in the text. Fossil evidence does not support intermediate, transitional, or missing links.

“If pressed about man’s ancestry, I would have to unequivocally say that all we have is a huge question mark. To date, there has been nothing found to truthfully purport as a transitional species to man…If further pressed, I would have to state that there is more evidence to suggest an abrupt arrival of man rather than gradual process of evolving.”

Richard Leakey, one of the world’s foremost paleoanthropologist, 1990

Man, in addition to apes and monkeys, was made on day six, not millions of years ago.

Man’s purpose is defined by God. The purpose of man is to rule over animal life. Man is to rule over fish, birds, cattle, and creeping things. He is to rule over the entirety of the earth.

“…I am quite conscious that my speculations run beyond the bounds of true science…it is a mere rag of an hypothesis with as many flaw(s) and holes as sound parts.”

Charles Darwin to Asa Gray

Romans 3:4 May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, as it is written, “THAT YOU MAY BE JUSTIFIED IN YOUR WORDS, AND PREVAIL WHEN YOU ARE JUDGED.

God is truth.
