Once again we received a comment that demonstrates a person’s blind faith in the godless religion of evolution and once again, for the umpteenth time, I will address his comments for all to see the emptiness of that faith.
From: Mark M.
Subject: age of the Earth
The Earth is at least 4 billion years old. The rest of creation is at least 14+ billion years old. There may in fact be other Universes than our own. Humans were not contemporaneous with dinosaurs.
Embracing scientific fact is liberating.
Give it a shot.
Mark, thank you for sending us your comments. I see by them that you automatically differentiate evolution as being science and creation as being religion. Whether you realize it or not, this is an earmark sign of the blindness of many evolutionists.
Are you aware of how many scientific discoveries have been made by creationists? Take a look at the MRI, which was invented by Dr. Raymond Damadian, an ardent young earth creationist. Dr. D. Russell Humphreys, a retired physicist from Sandia National Lab used his knowledge of astrophysics and the creation account in Genesis to predict many characteristics of our solar system and beyond. To date, many of his predictions have been proven to be quite accurate and none have been proven to be wrong.
Long before modern geologists started looking at catastrophic causes to explain many geological features such as the Grand Canyon, creation geologists were claiming catastrophism as causes. After witnessing catastrophic events such as Mount St. Helens and the effect it had on the geology of the area, many modern geologists have now jumped on the catastrophic bandwagon.
Dr. Steve Austin, a creation geologist came up with the idea for the rapid formation of peat from floating log mats. His theory has been proven right by the log mats floating in Spirit Lake, beneath Mount St Helens. Austin also points out that a single mud flow from Mount St Helens carved out a canyon in one day that is a 1/40th scale replica of the Grand Canyon. He also observed a 25 foot thick layer of sediment that had been deposited in less than a day and then was cut through later by another flow. If an evolutionary geologist had known the history of this layer and later observed it, they would automatically have interpreted it as several million years of formation before being eroded away.
I could go on and on about the good sound science done by creationists the world over. And yes, there are creation scientists all over the world and their numbers are continually growing. I’ve talked to a number of them who have told me that they use to be evolutionists until it became obvious to them that evolution could not scientifically be possible or explain the facts they see around them.
One scientist that I spoke to over ten years ago was born, raised and schooled in the communist controlled Soviet Union (now Russia). As all Russians of his day, he was an ardent evolutionist. He went to school and studied biology and became a research biologist. But the more he studied biology, the more questions he had that weren’t being answered by evolution. He told me that he eventually understood that evolution just didn’t work in the world of living things. I’ll never forget when he looked me in the eye, his eyes began to get watery and he told me that he realized that evolution was a lie and that it was not science but a religion. Regaining himself, he told me that he was confused and wasn’t sure where to turn and started asking questions. The more questions he asked, the more trouble he found himself in with his fellow evolutionists.
A huge smile then came across his face when he told me that he accidentally happened upon some creation science literature. As he started reading, he got more and more excited because for the first time in several years, he was finding answers to his questions that evolution had failed to yield. After several months of reading and research, he came to realize that the only explanation for the biology and geology he knew and saw came from the Book of Genesis. It was then that he also realized that there really was a God and that he was one of God’s creations.
Are you familiar with the basic laws of biology that state that life cannot arise from non-life? Please share with us the FACT of evolution that defied this law to form the first living cell. Is there any proof that it really happened that way?
Or what about the law of information that states that information can only come from another source of information and ultimately from a source of intelligence? Please share with us all of the evidence to prove that not one but at least three different forms of information all evolved at the same time in order for the first living cell to survive and replicate itself. If you are interested to know what three I’m talking about, they are RNA, DNA (they are distinct languages that share some commonality) and then there are the oligosaccharides.
If you study further you will find that evolutionary theory goes against many of the laws of physics and astronomy as well. For instance, if the universe is as old as you say, then there should not be any spiral galaxies left in most of it as they would have wrapped tight by now. However, our own tiny little solar system sits in one of those spiral arms of the Milky Way galaxy. (I’ll be writing more on this later this next week). The Big Bang does not allow for the universe to have a center, but several findings in recent years have indicated that not only does the universe have a center, but that the earth and the Milky Way are very near that center.
So Mark, your belief in billions of years and dinosaurs living millions of years before mankind, is not science, but a religious belief in natural processes. Evolution is not fact nor can it be proven. We have dozens and dozens of articles on our website that explain this, if only you would open your eyes and look at it.
As I’ve told so many others, I spend much more time studying evolutionary literature and research articles than I do studying creationist material. I believe that makes me qualified to comment on it. Have you taken any real time to study creationist material or are you just regurgitating the same old rhetoric that so many other uninformed evolutionists spit out?
Mark – I’m going to make you an offer I haven’t done since being associated with Creation Revolution. If you will seriously take my challenge to study some creationist literature, I will send you your choice of the following items at no charge: Religion of Evolution (DVD) & companion booklet; The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution or Starlight, Time, & the New Physics. The condition is that you study the material and then get back to me. To take advantage of this offer, please contact me through firstname.lastname@example.org and I will discuss the matter further with you and get you your choice of material.
I pray you have the honesty and integrity to take me up on this offer, unless you are afraid of having your blind faith in evolution challenged and possibly changed. I look forward to hearing back from you.
by Jonathan Sarfati
Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, author of the world’s best-selling creation book, takes outspoken atheist Dr. Richard Dawkins on head to head in the book The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution. Dawkins’ most recent book, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution has provided yet another opportunity for Sarfati to show that biblical Christianity best explains the natural biological world, not atheistic evolutionism. Sarfati thoroughly exposes the bankruptcy of Dawkins arguments and methods, highlighting tactics which he deems are unreasonable and illogicalsuch as Dawkins frequently resorting to straw-man arguments.
Sarfatia scientist, chessmaster, logician and Christian apologistknows well the creation vs. evolution controversy. Before publishing The Greatest Hoax on Earth?, he authored the bestselling book, Refuting Evolution, which now has over 500,000 copies in print. His confident and rigorous approach always makes for interesting and thrilling reading, as he tackles his opponents head-on. Sarfati also tackles the ethical and biblical issues that accompany the creation vs. evolution issue.
The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution provides a penetrating examination of Dawkins anti-creationist magnum opus. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of biology, geology, fossils, radiometric dating and more, Sarfati thoroughly exposes the bankruptcy of Dawkins arguments. Thousands of years ago, King Solomon wrote, “The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him.” Sarfati maintains that arguments for evolution and against creation sound convincing only when they are unexamined.
Richard Dawkins is known for his strident atheism, for which he needs evolution. Jonathan Sarfati is known for declaring that the biblical account of origins has abundant evidential support and has withstood the test of time. And unlike some writers, he is able to make the science accessible to the lay reader, making it an informative and educational read that is also an intellectual feast for the scientifically trained. The Greatest Hoax on Earth? pulls together the most up-to-date arguments against evolution and in defense of the biblical account of origins and may very well prove to be Sarfati’s second bestseller.
“In my opinion Sarfati’s book beats Dawkins’ book, point by point, on all issues.”Dr. John Sanford (Professor, Cornell University and inventor of the gene gun)
“The Greatest Hoax on Earth? is an excellent rebuttal to the best evolution has to offer. The reader should walk away with the understanding that evolutionary theory is a house of cards and its chief spokesmen are promoting poor, illogical, and false arguments against the only viable alternative: biblical creation.” Dr. Robert Carter (Ph.D., Marine Biology and Genetics, University of Miami)
