In the beginning

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”Genesis 1:1

In this verse, we find the foundational truth of all things.  God is the Creator and we are creatures.  Even nature reveals that there is a Creator (Romans 1:20; Psalms 19:1).  It is simply foolish and illogical to believe that everything we see every day – such an intricate design – is nothing more than a cosmic burp, or accident.  It’s little wonder that God’s Word tells us that the atheist is a fool (Psalms 14:1). 

Every foundational truth of science is denied in evolution.  Scientifically, nothing can arise from nothing.  Yet, many scientists today are willing to embrace such an unscientific theory even though it contradicts what they claim to promote. 

The most basic definition of “science” is “the investigation of facts”.  And yet there is not one shred of evidence to support evolution.  Charles Darwin predicted that the fossil record would either prove or falsify his theory.  In the 140 years since his death, scientists have uncovered more fossils than ever before.  What has happened?  Certainly, no missing links have been found.  The gap between man and beast has actually widened.  So, archaeological discoveries have done nothing to prove evolution.  On the contrary, the Biblical truth of creation has been proven if we merely “investigate the facts.” 

So, if scientists are really searching for the truth, why aren’t they embracing Creationism and the belief in a young Earth?  The truth is simple.  Sinful men would rather embrace a ridiculous theory like evolution than believe there is a Creator.  Without doubt, if there is a Creator, He has every right to enforce a standard.  Depraved humans do not want to hear of such a standard. 

George Wald, evolutionist and professor at Harvard said, “There are only two possibilities as to how life arose; one is spontaneous generation arising to evolution, the other is a supernatural creative act of God, there is no third possibility. Spontaneous generation that life arose from non-living matter was scientifically disproved 120 years ago by Louis Pasteur and others. That leaves us with only one possible conclusion, that life arose as a creative act of God. I will not accept that philosophically because I do not want to believe in God, therefore I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible, spontaneous generation arising to evolution." You see friend, evolutionists know their theory is impossible.  They simply embrace evolution by faith (which, by the way, makes it a religion) because they refuse to believe in the great Law-Giver, the God of the Bible.

Dear reader, perhaps you have been deceived by the promoters of such a silly theory.  Let me assure you that no scientist has proven or will prove evolution.  In fact, no reputable scientist believes that evolution is possible today.  They simply choose to embrace it because the only other alternative is to believe in special Creation by God.

God is real.  He is the Creator.  He requires us all to keep His perfect, holy standard.  There really was a Garden of Eden and we all fell in Adam.  The only Hope for mankind is through the meritorious work of Jesus.  Do you trust Him today?
