    4. SCIENCE FRICTION “SCIENCE AND FAITH MUST BE FRIENDS, FOR THE SAME GOD IS ACTIVE IN BOTH.”

    5. SCIENCE FRICTION “Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” ~ Albert Einstein

    6. SCIENCE FRICTION “The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerfulBeing.” ~ Isaac Newton

    7. Then we should see a chain of gradual and progressively related fossils marking the evolutionary advancement of life. • Then we should see objective proof of the uniformitarian principle – that natural laws have always operated invariably in the past as they do now in the present. • Then we should be able to accurately date rocks and fossils with simple dating methods that would yield expected and sufficient time for evolution. • Then we would not expect to see a chain of morphing taxonomy. Creatures in the past should bear close resemblance to present-day organisms. • Then we would see the principle of catastrophism – that evidence exists that demonstrates cataclysmic events left indelible marks upon the earth’s geography. • Then we can closely estimate the approximate age of the earth based on biblical records. EVOLUTION CREATION SCIENCE FRICTION THE WAR OF WORLDVIEWS

    8. Then I am not morally accountable for my actions. There is no God who will judge me. • My primary duty is to reproduce my DNA (preferably as much as possible) within my lifespan to better the chances of advancing and improving my tribe’s chance of survival. • Life is cheap and dispensible. Death drives evolution forward by removing the weak and unfit from the gene pool. Abortion and Euthenasia are ways of helping evolution along. • Then I am morally accountable to my Creator for my actions. • Then my primary duty is to serve my Creator’s interests and His purpose for my life. I ought to use the life He gave me to accomplish something for Him. • All life is precious and priceless, for our wise Creator has made life purposeful and wonderful. EVOLUTION CREATION SCIENCE FRICTION THE WAR OF WORLDVIEWS

    9. Then I am recycled molecules…a mistake, really. • Then I serve no purpose. I am just a link in an endless chain with no meaningful existence. • Then I have no standard for moral behavior. If survival of the fittest is true, the only moral value is…survive. • Then this life is all that I have. I might as well live it up. • Then there is no authority except for myself. I determine my own morality. • Then I am a special creation …made in the image of God. • Then I serve an ultimate purpose. My Designer has suited me for a grand purpose. • Then I have a standard for moral behavior. If He is the Creator, He makes all the rules. • Then this life is not all that I have. • Then God is the ultimate SovereignAuthority. He has a right to expect obedience from His creation. EVOLUTION CREATION SCIENCE FRICTION THE WAR OF WORLDVIEWS

    10. SCIENCE FRICTION “No gods, no life after death, no ultimate foundation for ethics, no ultimate meaning in life, and no human free will are all deeply connected to an evolutionary perspective.” Dr. Will Provine, Professor of the History of Biology Cornell University

    11. SCIENCE FRICTION “Natural selection, the blind, unconscious, automatic process which Darwin discovered, and which we now know is the explanation for the existence and apparently purposeful form of all life, has no purpose in mind. It has no mind and no mind’s eye. It does not plan for the future. It has no vision, no foresight, no sight at all. If it can be said to play the role of watchmaker in nature, it is the blind watchmaker.” Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design, New York: W.W. Norton, 1987), p.5

    20. SCIENCE FRICTION CASUALTIES OF EVOLUTION in the War of Worldviews “I suppose the reason why we leapt at the Origin of Species was that the idea of God interfered with our sexual morés” Sir Julian Huxley - Head of UNESCO - One of the World’s leading evolutionists was asked in a Television Interview why did the scientific community jump at Darwin’s ideas?

    21. SCIENCE FRICTION CASUALTIES OF EVOLUTION in the War of Worldviews “Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable.” Sir Arthur Keith (he wrote the forward to the 100th anniversary edition of Darwin’s book, Origin of Species in 1959)

    22. SCIENCE FRICTION Objective? Unbiased? Open-minded? Free-thinking? I THINK NOT.

    23. SCIENCE FRICTION • Evolution is aggressively recruiting our young people. • They distort the data and lie in the classroom. • They hate Creationists and refuse to support their fallacious claims with real scientific evidence. They will not relinquish their monopoly upon the science classroom. They forbid their students the inquiry of another, more plausible, origins perspective. • The implications of their teaching on evolution are deadly. • 75% of young people will leave the faith by their freshmen year of college.

    24. SCIENCE FRICTION “O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.” I Timothy 6:20-21

    25. SCIENCE FRICTION • Don’t be deceived… • I want our Christian students who attend public school to be informed and to be fully persuaded about Biblical Creationism. • I want to inform our Christian parents of how pervasive and aggressive this lie is being foisted upon your children. • I want you to understand that this is a BIG ISSUE. The credibility of the entire Bible is at stake. This affects more than just the science classroom. It systematically affects how you understand man’s identity, morality and ethics, your concept of truth, etc… • I want you to believe the Bible from the very first verse.

    26. SCIENCE FRICTION EVOLUTION'S EVOLUTION'S EMBARRASSING EMBARRASSING ERROR The Swollen Jugular of Evolution

    27. SCIENCE FRICTION “If my theory [evolution] be true, numberless intermediate varieties… must assuredly have existed;” Charles Darwin The Origin of Species…p. 211

    28. SCIENCE FRICTION “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, then my theory would absolutely break down.” Charles Darwin The Origin of Species…p. 154

    29. SCIENCE FRICTION “Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain, and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory.” Charles Darwin The Origin of Species…p. 280

    30. SCIENCE FRICTION “The evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of their branches; the rest is inference, however reasonable, not the evidence of fossils.” Stephen Jay Gould Harvard University “Evolution’s Erratic Pace” Natural History Vol. 5 May 1977

    31. SCIENCE FRICTION “Initially troubling to me was the paucity of fossil evidence for the transitions between various species of animals. Even Darwin conceded that the lack of these fossils ‘is perhaps the most obvious and serious objection’ to his theory, although he confidently predicted that future discoveries would vindicate him.” ~ Lee Strobel, The Case for Faith, 91 (Zondervan Pub.)

    32. SCIENCE FRICTION Jonathan Wells on what the Fossil Record actually says about Evolution’s Tree of Life

    33. SCIENCE FRICTION Jonathan Wells on what the Fossil Record actually says about Evolution’s Tree of Life

    34. SCIENCE FRICTION The fossil record has turned out to be a complete embarrassment for Darwinists!

    35. SCIENCE FRICTION EVOLUTION'S FALSE ASSUMPTIONS • Uniformitarianism • The Geologic Column • Circular Dating Methods • Fossils are a portal to the past • Sedimentation takes millions of years • Fossils prove descendency • Strange fossilized remains indicate a “missing link”

    36. SCIENCE FRICTION “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” [Uniformitarianism] ~ II Peter 3:3-4

    37. SCIENCE FRICTION “For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” ~ II Peter 3:3-4

    38. SCIENCE FRICTION PRINCIPLE OF UNIFORMITY Uniformitarianism is the assumption that the same natural laws and processes that operate in the universe now have always operated in the universe in the past and apply everywhere in the universe. 

    39. SCIENCE FRICTION Uniformitarianism: The present is the key to the past. No! The Bible is the only perfect key to the past.

    40. Charles Lyell, a Scottish lawyer, wrote an influential work in 1830 called Principles of Geology. SCIENCE FRICTION He said that the geology of his day was filled with “false conclusions, … futile reasoning… ancient doctrines sanctioned by the implicit faith of many generations, and supposed to rest on scriptural authority.” Charles Lyell p. 30

    41. SCIENCE FRICTION Lyell said his goal was to “free the science from Moses” Life Letters and Journals’, published by John Murray 1881.

    42. SCIENCE FRICTION In spite of the fact that the geologic column does not exist (except in the textbook and in the minds of those who believe it), people who believed in it changed their world view away from Biblical flood geology to uniformitarianism.

    43. SCIENCE FRICTION • “Eighty to eighty-five percent of Earth’s land surface does not have even 3 geologic periods appearing in ‘correct’ consecutive order. It becomes an overall exercise of gargantuan special pleading and imagination for the evolutionary-uniformitarian paradigm to maintain that there ever were geologic periods.” • Dr. John Woodmorappe, geologist “The Essential Non-Existence of the Evolutionary Uniformitarian Geologic Column” CRSQ Vol. 18 No. 1 June 1981, pp. 46-71.

    44. SCIENCE FRICTION The Geologic Column is the bible for the evolutionist. It can only be found one place in the world… The textbooks!

    45. SCIENCE FRICTION “If there were a column of sediments… Unfortunately no such column exists.”

    46. SCIENCE FRICTION If the geologic column existed in one location it would be 100 miles thick! Biology P. 385 A Beka Books

    47. SCIENCE FRICTION Charles Darwin, age 22, fresh out of school to be a preacher, set sail on H.M.S. Beagle in 1831. Darwin brought his Bible and Charles Lyell’s book Principles of Geology on his 5 year voyage.

    48. SCIENCE FRICTION “Disbelief [in the Bible] crept over me on a very slow rate, but at last complete. The rate was so slow that I felt no distress.” Letter to Russell Wallace in 1868 published in World’s Greatest Letters

    49. SCIENCE FRICTION EVOLUTION'S FALSE ASSUMPTIONS • Uniformitarianism • The Geologic Column • Circular Dating Methods • Fossils are a portal to the past • Sedimentation takes millions of years • Fossils prove descendency • Strange fossilized remains indicate a “missing link”

    50. SCIENCE FRICTION PRINCIPLE OF CATASTROPHISM Catastrophismis the idea that many of Earth’s crustal features (strata layers, erosion, polystrate fossils, etc) formed as a result ofpast cataclysmic activity. In other words, the Earth’s surface has been scarred by catastrophic natural disasters.
