Matthew 22:37 –38: Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment.

1 Peter 3:15: But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

APOLOGETICS

“DEFENSE”

slide4

A Word To The Wise

Romans 1:20

John 14:6

We should know of God because of creation

There is only one way to God – thru Christ

Defending our faith must be done in love.

Though it is important to be able to defend your faith, truly knowing God and living rightly is the greatest defense and most important.

slide5

EVOLUTION

Macro

Micro

- Changes that are huge

- Changes within species

slide6

Evolution Versus Creation is not a case of religion versus science, but of science versus science.

Do you believe that our ordered universe came because of…

CHANCE – RANDOMNESS

AN INTELLIGENT DESIGNER / CREATOR

I think it takes more faith to believe that everything just happened than it does to believe that a creator planned it.

slide7

ARGUMENTS FROM DESIGN

When you see a watch, you know their most be a watch maker. When you see a bike, you know there must have been a bike maker. No one has ever read a book and thought there was no author.

Random letters put together will never even produce a Dr. Seuss book. A tornado going through a junk yard will never produce a bike. Random chance will never produce a human being.

slide8

2nd Law Of Thermodynamics

"There is no natural process the only result of which is to cool a heat reservoir and do external work."

Things naturally become disorderly

So it takes intention to create order.

Examples?

You Room; Your Body; A Forest;

slide9

Some still believe in a big bang. But, how much order comes from an explosion?

I believe in the Big Bang theory – God spoke and Bang it happened!

slide10

To move from a one-celled amoeba to man is an incredible increase in order. This directly contradicts the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics.

A number of scientists believe the 2nd Law, when truly understood, is enough to refute the theory of Evolution. In fact, it is one of the most important reasons why various evolutionists have dropped their theory in favor of Creationism (or at least, Intelligent Design).

slide11

What about the age of the earth? Millions of years – how does that compare to the Bible?

When we look at the chronologies in the Bible, even if we take the longest possible time between generations, man would only have been around for about 15,000 years (and probably closer to 6000).

slide12

God could easily have made the earth with AGE

Adam – was not created as a baby – but as a man – or at least a big boy – he was able to rule the Garden and name the animals. Why couldn’t God have made the earth with age?

“DAY” – according to the Bible (Mark 10:6; Genesis 2:7, 21)

slide13

PROBLEMS WITH DATING METHODS

There are many different methods of determining how old a fossil is. Each dating method can be wrong – and they often conflict.

One Example from Among Thousands

In Australia, some wood found in Tertiary basalt was ‘dated’ by radiocarbon analysis at about 45,000 years old, but the basalt was ‘dated’ by potassium-argon method at 45 million years old!

slide14

How long does it take to make coal?

Heating wood, water and acidic clay at 150°C (rather cool geologically) for 4 to 36 weeks, in a sealed quartz tube with no added pressure, forms high-grade black coal.

How long does it take to create opals?

This opal is indistinguishable, under the electron microscope, from opals mined in the field. A scientist mixes together the right common chemicals — no heat, no pressure, and definitely no millions of years.

slide15

The Flood & The Fossil Record

If evolution occurred, we should definitely find fossils that are in-between species. Also, we would expect to have these in-between species around today (the ape that is almost man). We have no such fossils anywhere.

slide16

There are billions of fossil fish in rock layers around the world which are incredibly well-preserved. They frequently show intact fins and often scales, indicating that they were buried rapidly and the rock hardened quickly. In the real world, dead fish are scavenged within 24 hours. Even in some idealized cold, sterile, predator-free and oxygen-free water, they will become soggy and fall apart within weeks.

This gives great reason to believe in a flood.

slide17

FYI

If you go to a museum and look at fossils, you’ll never see the real thing. They are in a back room if they are there at all. And when you see transitional fossils, those are created – not copied. There are no transitional fossils.

slide18

There are 3 Things that have to happen simultaneously for evolution to work.

Design - blueprint

Mechanism - that puts it together

Material – the stuff that you put together

Without any one of those, evolution will not happen.

slide19

Design Mechanism Material

PLANT: DNA Photosynthesis Cell Structure

DECK: Plan Workers Wood, nails

Take any one of those parts away, and you get nothing.

slide20

If you took all the carbon in the universe and put in on the face of the earth, allowed it to chemically react at the most rapid rate possible, and left if for a billion years, the odds of creating just ONE functional protein molecule would be ONE chance in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

slide21

Evolution Versus Creation is not a case of religion versus science, but of science versus science.

Do you believe that our ordered universe came because of…

Chance – Randomness

OR

An Intelligent Designer / Creator
