“Origins”, A Study on Creation
  • Things we will discuss inlude -
    • 3 approaches to the origin of life
    • 2 types of science
    • Satans 2 pronged “scientific” attack on Christianity
    • Uniformatarianism
    • Evolution
    • Fossils
    • Dinosaurs
    • Some specially “designed” creatures
    • Entropy
    • Radio-isotope Dating methods
    • Symbionic life
    • Pre and Post Flood Environments
    • Life Spans of Biblical men
three approaches to creation
Three Approaches to Creation
  • Literal Biblical Creation
    • God always existed and has a plan
    • God created all matter & energy and life in a literal 6 days
    • Genesis is Literal,
    • Earth is <10,000 years old
  • Mainstream Science
    • Matter & Energy always existed in a state of change
    • Life developed on its own (Evolution)
    • Earth is Billions of years old
    • Things happened long ago as they do today
  • Non-Literal (Figurative) Creation or Theistic Evolution
    • God always existed
    • God Created Energy & Matter (Big Bang)
    • God used (or allowed) the Evolution Process to develop life

Life is Eternal and

God makes the Rules

Life is Temporary so

man can make his own

Rules

Life is Evolutionary so

God wants man to make

satan s two pronged attack
Satan’s Two Pronged Attack

Uniform-i-tarian-ism - (Lyell)

The earth changes slowly and gradually

and has always done so at the rates we see

it change today.

Evolution - (Darwin)

Complex life forms evolved from simpler life

forms by natural selection and random

mutation. Liiving organsims developed from

non-living chemicals by natural processes

and random chance.

number sense the odds
Number Sense - The Odds

Chance of Mutation in DNA Today = 1 in 107 (10,000,000)

2 Related Mutations = 1 in 1014

4 Related Mutations = 1 in 1028

Mutation Based Evolution of the Horse 1 in 10 3,000,000

HOWEVER

- The Number of Particle interactions in 5 Billion Years

is only about 10170 therefore -

The Odds are Ridiclulous Against Mutation Based Evolution

entropy
Entropy

Definition: Entropy - Degree of Disorganization

2nd Law of Thermodynamics

“ in the absence of the application of energy,

intelligently applied, everything runs down

toward dis-array ”

- Concentrations of energy (heat) are lost

- Complexity Decreases

- Order Decreases

- Information is lost

Could the complex protien chains of life (DNA) have

formed by themselves from simple carbon molecules ?

The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics says NO!

Entopy (con’t)
  • We see the effects of Entropy everyday -
  • - In Your Body
    • If you don’t feed it the right stuff, it dies and looses its
    • complex organization (“returns to dust”)
  • - In Your Home
    • - Without the A/C on everthing comes to the same temperature.
    • - Things left alone deteriorate (like your room!)
  • We also know that energy applied indescriminately almost always destroys organization ( Fires, Bombs, Earthquakes, etc)
  • Is the universe complex, Yes. Do energy concentrations exist, Yes.
  • What is the obvious conclusion ? It all just happened? NO
          • Creative Intelligence Exists!

Man

Science says “Complexity and Organization has increased over time”

Animals

NOT OBSERVED

Plants

Protiens

Molecules

Time

The Bible says “Complexity and Organization has decreased over time”

Creation

Loss of abilities

OBSERVED

Fall

Loss of species

Flood

Loss of Longevity

Sin

Time

biblical pre flood earth
Biblical “Pre-Flood” Earth

- Less harmful radiation reaches the surface

- More Ozone above / less on the surface

Canopy of “Waters” Above

(possibly ice)

Single Land Mass

Single Sea

- Uniform Temperate Climate - Dew not Rain (possibly within 4o C)

- Giganticism in Plant and Animal Life

- No Animal Food Chain - Plants are the only Food Source

- Longevity of Man averages 900 years

post flood earth

Canopy is gone

Land Mass is Divided

Post Flood Earth

- More harmful UV radiation at the surface

- Less Ozone above / more on the surface

- Colder Ocean / Less O2

A Tougher World - Large Temperature variations / Storms / Wind

Longevity of Man (and probably animals) is 10% of what it was

Extinctions of larger species

Animal Food Chain is needed

Radio-Isotope Dating - Carbon 14

Cosmic Ray

see how much

C14 is left.

sample of the

dead animal

in the past

in the present

- C12 and C14 exist in the environment

- Animal consumes C12 and C14

- Animal dies

- C12 stays C12 but C14 decays to C12

- Amount of C14 will be less due to radioactive decay

- C12 to C14 amounts are compared

- if we know how much C14 was present when the

animal died, we can tell how long he has been dead

the clock is faulty
The “Clock” is Faulty

the big “IF”

How much C14 was there when the animal died?

Assumptions made when the geologic column was made -

- C12 and C14 were at equilibrium (stable ratio that exists today)

- C12 and C14 were evenly mixed in the environment

But -

- C12 and C14 are not at equilibrium today ..... C14 ratio is increasing

- C14 rate of decay today is only 70% the rate of C14 formation .

- This was published in 1958 but no one re-wrote the text books!

- people began using circular logic

Today C14 is considered invalid beyond 5000 years

the clock is circular
The “Clock” is Circular

Life Forms

Rock Layers

Rocks are dated by geologists

based on what fossils they contain

BAD LOGIC

Fossils are dated by paleontologists

based on what rock layers they are

found in

the bombadier beetle was engineered
The “Bombadier” Beetle was “Engineered”

- 2 volitale & corrosive chemicals

- Inhibitor protien

- catalyst

- Hi temp combustion chamber

- 200+ Degree reaction

Other Amazingly well “Engineered” life

forms and Symbionic relationships.

- Woodpecker

- WomBat

- Angler Fish

- Yucca Moth

It doesn’t work at all until it all works !

why you can t mix creation and evolution
Why You Can’t Mix Creation and Evolution
  • Bible teaches Death entered the world with Adams Sin
    • Evolution assumes death always existed
    • Gen 1:29 .. No animal food chain prior to the Flood (Gen 9:3)
    • 1 Cor 15:21 .. Death came through man
    • Rom 8:21 .. the whole of creation (not just man!)
  • Bible says Adam “Fell” and things decayed, (not got better)
    • God Finished creation and it was Good!
    • Gen 3:14-17 ... God cursed all
    • Acts 3:21 .. God will restore the perfection
  • All Key Doctrines of the Bible are founded in Genesis
    • Mans Sin nature and the Need for Christ
    • God’s nature / God’s Plan / Concept of Atonement
    • More than 100 New Testament quotations from Genesis
  • Genesis reads like literal history
    • Real people , real places, real events
you can t mix creation and evolution cont
You Can’t Mix Creation and Evolution (cont’)
  • “Days” can’t be millions of years
    • Adam created on the 6th day (lived 6th and 7th)
    • “day” used in Gen 14-19 5x as related to nights, seasons and years
  • “each after it’s kind”
    • Genesis chapter 1 clearly teachs reproduction by “kind” or species
    • Evolution requires 1 kind can change into another.
  • Pre-Flood men were not “primitive simpletons”
    • Adam was created “perfect” and “named” all creatures
    • Decendants worked with musical instruments (Gen 4)
    • Longevity is not consistent with Evolution
  • Evolution and Genesis have different basic sequences
    • Trees before sea life
    • Earth before sun
    • a Sun is not needed for the “new earth” in Revelation

Why not believe Gods Word, He was there, Darwin wasn’t.
