Four reasons why evolution cannot be true

T

1. Something cannot come out of nothing

 

The most common evolutionary theory for the origin of the universe is the

Big Bang theory. The logical fallacy behind this is that it means that in

the beginning there was nothing and then nothing exploded. Where did the

cosmic dust / energy which exploded in the Big Bang come from? Nothing

cannot explode.

 

2. Order does not come out of chaos

 

Our universe is not random and chaotic. Our earth is perfectly balanced in

its position in the Solar System to support life. Explosions create chaos

and disorder. The implication of the Big Bang theory is that the universe is

proceeding from disorder to order. The opposite is true. The Second Law of

Thermodynamics says that the universe is becoming more random and

disorganised, not more organised.

 

3. Life does not come out of non-life

 

The study of genetics is showing that even the most simple organisms have

incredibly complex DNA. There is no possibility that life with the ability

to reproduce itself could come out of an explosion or chemical reaction.

Evolutionary scientists are coming up with more and more bizarre ideas for

the origin of life, like the idea now being promoted on the BBC that simple

life forms originated in distant parts of the universe, survived crossing

the universe on the back of comets which then crashed into the earth and

produced the life of this planet.

 

4. Complex life forms cannot have evolved

 

Evolutionary scientists, including Darwin himself, recognise that organs

like the human eye are unbelievably complex. Darwin actually said that there

is no possibility that the eye could have evolved. Richard Dawkins

contradicts Darwin saying that it could have evolved over thousands of

generations. But this raises a logical fallacy. While the eye was evolving

the creature was blind. Blind humans cannot survive without the help of the

sighted. So what happened for millions of years while the eye evolved?

 

This argument applies to all evolutionary leaps. Without wings the average

bird is not going to survive very long in the presence of the average cat.

How did birds survive for millions of years while they evolved their wings?

Until they had two perfectly functioning wings the evolving wings would

actually have been a hindrance not a help.

 

Even more crucial is the reproductive system of different creatures. Think

about the incredibly complex and diverse reproductive systems of birds,

bees, butterflies to say nothing of humans. Every part of the system, both

male and female, has to be functioning perfectly. If not, how many

generations does the species have? One. It does not have millions of years

to evolve the reproductive system. Either it works and the creature can

reproduce itself for millions of generations. Or it does not work and the

creature dies out after the first generation.

 

Alternative explanation

 

1. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth

 

This mighty universe originated in the creative power of the eternal God,

who is without beginning and without end. The question 'Who made God?' is

the product of our limited minds which cannot conceive or understand

eternity without God's help.

 

2. God created an ordered universe

 

Creation demands a Creator and design demands a designer. If someone said a

watch had come about as a result of an explosion or an accident we would

think they were crazy. The universe shows abundant evidence of God's design.

It was created for his purposes: 'Thus says the Lord who created the

heavens, who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who has established

it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited' (Isaiah

45.18).

 

Although the Bible does not claim to be a scientific text book, its

statements about the universe do not contradict modern scientific

discoveries, unlike things taught in other belief systems. The Bible teaches

that there are an infinite number of stars in the universe, not the limited

number of stars that can be seen with the naked eye (Genesis 15.5). Isaiah

40.22 tells us that the earth is a sphere (not flat!); Job 26.7 that it

hangs on nothing or is set in space (not that it is set on pillars as the

Greeks taught or that the sun is taken in a boat underneath it between

sunset and sunrise as the ancient Egyptians taught). The present decay of

the universe which science has explained by the Second Law of Thermodynamics

is taught in the Psalm 102.25-6: 'The heavens are the work of your hands.

They will perish, but You will endure; yes all of them will grow old like a

garment, like a cloak you will change them.'

 

3. God is the author of life

 

God created fully developed creatures with their seed within them and the

ability to reproduce 'after their own kind.' Birds could fly, humans could

see, caterpillars produced chrysalises and turned into butterflies. God

created all the amazingly diverse reproductive systems requiring male and

female input which were fully functioning from the beginning and able to

sustain generation after generation of the species. Humans are different

from animals being created in 'the image of God' with a spiritual dimension

capable of communicating with God and receiving the gift of eternal life

through the Messiah Jesus who is Himself God and through whom the world was

made (John 1.1-18, Hebrews 1.1-3).

 

It takes faith to believe all this as we read in Hebrews 11.3: 'By faith we

understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the

things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.'

 

It also takes faith to believe the evolutionary hypothesis. Today evolution

is taught as fact by the educational system and by the media. Really it is

an important part of the brainwashing process, which is leading to the

antichristian world of the last days as people deny the Creator and make up

their own rules about how to live. Many people think they are being daring

and free-thinking by believing evolution, but in fact they are only doing

what the powers that be want them to do.

If you have not yet received the gift of eternal life we invite you to pray

the following prayer and contact us for further information on living the

new life in the Messiah Jesus:

 

'Heavenly Father, I admit that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I

believe that Jesus the Messiah died in my place paying the penalty for my

sins by shedding his precious blood. I am willing right now to turn from my

sin and accept Jesus the Messiah as my personal Saviour and Lord. I commit

my life to you and ask you to send the Holy Spirit into my life, to fill me

and to take control and to help me become the kind of person you want me to

be. Thank you Father for loving me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
