In the Beginning: Science and Genesis 1-11

“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?“ Psalm 11:3


As medical doctors we are skeptical of the claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the origination and complexity of life and we therefore dissent from Darwinian macroevolution as a viable theory.

Is there compelling evidence for evolution
Is there compelling evidence for evolution? ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the origination and complexity of life and we therefore dissent from Darwinian macroevolution as a viable theory.


New atheism
New Atheism: ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the origination and complexity of life and we therefore dissent from Darwinian macroevolution as a viable theory.

“…is the belief that religion should not simply be tolerated but should be countered, criticized, and exposed by rational argument wherever its influence arises. Proponents of New Atheism argue that recent scientific advancements demand a less accommodating attitude toward religion, superstition, and religious fanaticism than had traditionally been extended by many secularists.”


Evolutionist Philosopher Daniel Dennett: ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the origination and complexity of life and we therefore dissent from Darwinian macroevolution as a viable theory.

Darwinian evolution is “a universal acid; it eats through just about every traditional concept and leaves in its wake a revolutionized world-view.”

That worldview is Materialism


Christopher hitchens
Christopher Hitchens ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the origination and complexity of life and we therefore dissent from Darwinian macroevolution as a viable theory.

“the tenets of organized religion are nothing more than the “delusions” of humankind needed to sustain our desire for pageantry and meaning.”


Science books

The god hypothesis
The God Hypothesis ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the origination and complexity of life and we therefore dissent from Darwinian macroevolution as a viable theory.


Conflicting worldviews
Conflicting Worldviews ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the origination and complexity of life and we therefore dissent from Darwinian macroevolution as a viable theory.



Matthew 12 30
Matthew 12:30: knowledge and therefore the evolutionist’s worldview is irrational.

“He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters.”


The ultimate proof of creation
The Ultimate Proof of Creation knowledge and therefore the evolutionist’s worldview is irrational.

“The ultimate proof of creation is this: if biblical creation were not true, we could not know anything (italics his)! This proof can be stated in a number of different ways, but what it really comes down to is this:”


“…only the Christian worldview (starting with a literal Genesis) can rationally make sense of the universe. Only if biblical creation is true can we have genuine knowledge about anything.”


“The argument is that the Bible’s account of origins (along with its other accounts) must be true. Only the God described in the Bible can provide the foundation for the things we take for granted.”


“Without God’s Word, we would not have a good reason to believe in the preconditions of intelligibility: the basic reliability of memory and senses, laws of logic, uniformity of nature, morality, personal dignity and freedom, and so on.”


Naturalism nature is all there is
Naturalism (Nature is all there is): believe in the preconditions of intelligibility: the basic reliability of memory and senses, laws of logic, uniformity of nature, morality, personal dignity and freedom, and so on.”

You are the product of random, natural processes that did not have you in mind.


There are no absolutes! believe in the preconditions of intelligibility: the basic reliability of memory and senses, laws of logic, uniformity of nature, morality, personal dignity and freedom, and so on.”


  • Why should we take seriously what the Bible says over any other “religious” book?

  • Aren’t science and religion separate disciplines that do not involve each other?

  • Isn’t Genesis just an allegory and not intended to be read as a narrative of how the earth and all that is in it was created?

  • Don’t the days indicated in Genesis Chapter 1 really mean long periods of time and not literal,

    24-hour days? And what about the Gap theory -billions of years passed between Gen 1:1 and 1:2?
