Can I see some evidence of creation please? No a picture of a baby or a tree is not evidence.
From: Talis M.
I am disgusted by the level of lies that you spread and the regularity with which you send it. You are ENEMIES OF CIVILIZATION. You hypocritically use the products of science to bring it down.
Nick and Talis, thank you both for your emails which reveal your lack of understanding of the subject and also indicates that you have not been reading very many of our articles.
The argument between creation and evolution is NOT one of evidence, but of presuppositional beliefs. We all have the same facts and the same science. The difference is how we interpret those facts.
For example take the Grand Canyon. Evolutionists believe that the rock layers were laid down over hundreds of millions of years and then were slowly eroded away by a small (geographically speaking) river over millions of years. Creationists believe the rock layers were laid down by the Genesis Flood and that the canyon was created quickly due to a combination of a geological uplifting of the northern plateau and the breeching of a large inland lake left by the Flood, which carved much of the canyon in a relatively short period of time.
Neither evolutionists nor creationists can prove their interpretation of the facts. The evolutionists interpreted the evidence based upon their presuppositions of billions of years of godless random processes. The creationists interpret the evidence based upon their presuppositional views that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and as such is the basis for how we interpret the world around us.
There is NO evidence for evolution or creation. However, the very concept of evolution defies the very laws of science and biology that it purports to defend. To begin with, the Law of Abiogenesis which states that life cannot arise from non-life. Or the Law of Information which states that information cannot arise by itself and can only come from a source of intelligence? Or what about the general concept that disorder if left to itself will not create order?
Nick and Talis, you need to understand that the underlying issue is not science verses science or faith verses science, but one of faith verses faith. Evolutionists place their faith in the ideas of man which are constantly changing (i.e. no absolute truth) where creationists place their faith in God’s Word which never changes and is the only source of absolute truth. As for myself, I chose to place my faith in the all knowing God of the Bible and not fallible man.

Gen 2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.
Gen 2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. Gen 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which [were] under the firmament from the waters which [were] above the firmament: and it was so. (if this water above the firmament caused the earth to be one nice temperature, and blocked the direct sun light there might not be rain or rainbow till) Gen 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
Gen 8:2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; pro 8:28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: Gen 8:1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that [was] with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged; (Is this the first time wind is spoken of ?)
Leonard, thank you for the comments you submitted to the website.
From your comments, it appears that may adhere to what is known as the Canopy Theory. This theory believes that the waters above mentioned in Genesis 1:7 were a cloud layer that surrounded the earth and that it was this cloud layer that collapsed, causing the forty days of rain at the time of the Genesis Flood.
There are a number of problems with canopy theory, both scripturally and scientifically. Rather than repeat a previous response, I would like to direct you to The Canopy Theory and pray that helps to explain why this theory has been abandoned by most creationists.

Try to find a fossil rabbit in the Precambrian. Then I will believe in God and Jesus. (And creation).
An aethiest, again I thank you for your comment.
First of all, I would like to direct you to my response to Nick and Talis above concerning proof and evidence.
Secondly, I would like to challenge you to find a dinosaur in the Precambrian rock layers. All of the Precambrian fossils are marine fossils. As such, it would be ludicrous for anyone to expect to find the fossil remains of any terrestrial animal in that layer.
Thirdly, may I offer you a different scenario to consider? Though you don’t believe in the Bible, let’s assume that there was a worldwide Flood as described in Genesis 6-8.
Forty days of rain would have caused massive erosion and water carrying tons and tons of silt into the oceans. Therefore, the first organisms to be covered and preserved would have been those in the ocean and sea bottoms. As the waters rose and currents reached new land and eroded more soil, more and more silt would continue to pour into the oceans; more and more marine life zones would be buried. Eventually, the land masses would be inundated and they too would be buried by the tons of silt being carried by the waters and currents.
In other words, instead of looking at the geological layers and fossil record as being the results of time, they are more records of a geographic life zones being buried by a worldwide flood with benthic organisms found in the lowest layers and terrestrial plants and animals found in the upper layers.
Same evidence – different interpretation based on different presuppositions. And since it is an issue of presuppositional beliefs, I honestly don’t believe finding a rabbit fossil in the Precambrian would convert you to Christianity. I will pray that the Holy Spirit will work a regeneration of your heart, and remove the scales from your eyes and plugs from your ears and allow you to see and hear the world God created as He said He did.
