Jesus Christ, our glorious Lord and Savior, warned us about the enemy of our souls and his evil devices employed against us in John chapters eight and ten. We see the devil instituting his contradiction of God’s Word right from the beginning, and the disastrous results it brought to people as a result of our parent’s listening to Satan rather than God.
43 “Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.” John 8:43-45 10
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 1
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’” 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You shall not surely die. 5 For God know that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Genesis 3:1-6
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Romans 1:18-21
This is the state of much of the scientific community that embraces and champions evolution. The promotion of this error has brought in much wickedness to our world. Murder, mayhem, perversion and corruption of the truth are paraded throughout the world as a result of belief in this godless system of thought and philosophy. Notice, that it is not a science. Even those who are ardent defenders of this bankrupt system of belief have acknowledged the same.
One of the most influential evolutionist theorists of his day, Dr. Ernst Mayr, who was the Alexander Agassiz professor of zoology at Harvard University said this:
Evolutionary biology, in contrast with physics and chemistry, is a historical science—the evolutionist attempts to explain events and processes that have already taken place. Laws and experiments are inappropriate techniques for the explanation of such events and processes. Instead one constructs a historical narrative, consisting of a tentative reconstruction of the particular scenario that led to the events one is trying to explain.1
Please notice the terms used in the quote above; attempts to explain, constructs a historical narrative, tentative reconstruction, trying to explain. These terms are used purposefully because the evolutionist wasn’t present at the act of Creation, nor does he really know how life came about on this beautiful planet. The simplest believer in Christ knows, though, because she believes the Word of God the Bible. The evolutionist’s goal is to foolishly do away with the necessity for God by rejection of His Creation of the heavens and the earth with their made up stories. There, of course, will be protestations that they do have a record that concords with their empty theory, the fossil record, but what does it truthfully show? Darwin himself knew that if the fossil record did not show transitional forms extant for researchers to demonstrate the veracity of macroevolution, then it was a theory without basis in fact.
As by this theory, innumerable transitional forms must have existed. Why do we not find them imbedded in the crust of the earth? Why is all nature not in confusion instead of being as we see them, well-defined species? Geological research does not yield the infinitely many fine gradations between past and present species required by the theory; and this is the most obvious of the many objections which may be argued against it. The explanation lies, however, in the extreme imperfection of the geological record.2
Darwin was counting on fossil finds to corroborate his theory; instead we find the very opposite occurring. Here are the testimonies of paleontologists about the present paleontological record regarding transitional fossil forms. There have also been recent unexpected discoveries which have upended this theory altogether.
Dr. Stephen J. Gould, professor of geology and paleontology at Harvard University said the following:
All paleontologists know that the fossil record contains precious little in the way of intermediate forms; transitions between major groups are characteristically abrupt.3
The absence of fossil evidence for intermediary stages between major transitions in organic design, indeed our inability, even in our imagination, to construct functional intermediates in many cases, has been a persistent and nagging problem for gradualistic accounts of evolution.4
The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology. 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 the fossils…yet to preserve our favored account of evolution by natural selection we view our data as so bad that we never see the very process we profess to study.5
This is the confession of Dr. Colin Patterson, one time senior paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History in London which houses one of the largest inventories of fossils in the world:
I fully agree with your comments on the lack of direct illustration of evolutionary transitions in my book (Evolution). If I knew of any, fossil or living, I would have certainly have included them…Yet Gould and the American Museum people are hard to contradict when they say there are not transitional fossils…I will lay it on the line—there is not one such fossil for which one could make a watertight argument.6
Here we have the testimony of a geologist about the fossil record; Dr. D. V. Ager, past president of the British Geological Association said this:
It must be significant that nearly all evolutionary stories I learned as a student…have now been debunked…The point emerges that, if we examine the fossil record in detail, whether at the level of orders or of species, we find—over and over again—not gradual evolution, but the sudden explosion of one group at the expense of another.7
Finally, this is the frank admission by paleontologist Stephen Stanley of the John Hopkins University:
The known fossil record fails to document a single example of phyletic evolution accomplishing a major morphologic transition, and hence offers no evidence that the gradualistic model can be valid.8
Instead, the fossil record, as conceded to by Darwin and other evolutionists, shows a sudden burst of highly advanced and developed life-forms worldwide throughout the geological record, without any transitional fossils. Time magazine described fossil finds in the Cambrian period this way:
In a burst of creativity like nothing before or since, nature appears to have sketched out the blueprints for virtually the whole animal kingdom. Since 1987, discoveries of major fossil beds in Greenland, in China, in Siberia, and now in Namibia have shown that the period of biological innovation occurred at virtually the same instant in geologic time all around the world. What could possibly have powered such a radical advance? 9
This attestation to the real fossil record is further supported by the well-known evolutionist G. G. Simpson who declared:
It remains true, as every paleontologist knows, that most new species, genera, and families…appear in the record suddenly and are not led up to by known, gradual, completely continuous transitional sequences.10
Recently, non-petrified dinosaur bones have been discovered and reported to the chagrin of evolutionists. These discoveries have led to a great deal of controversy amongst scientists. How can viable biological material be found in fossils that are supposedly millions of years old? Dr. Mary Schweitzer, associate professor of marine, earth and atmospheric sciences at North Carolina State University, discovered soft tissue in dinosaur bones and sequenced the proteins that she found. Based upon subsequent tests she proved that what she had found was collagen and protein, and not some biofilm produced by bacteria. This all occurred from the time that she reported her discovery, in 2005, to her verification that is was indeed collagen and protein from the dinosaur in, 2009. In 2011, a Swedish team of researchers found soft tissue and biomolecules in the bones of a Mosasaur.11
Another find of dinosaur remains that were not petrified occurred in the summer of 2012, when Mark Armitage went on a dinosaur dig in the Hell Creek formation in Glendive, Montana. Mark Armitage, a microscopy specialist working as manager in the Electron and Confocal Microscopy Suite in the Biology Department at California State University Northridge from January 2010 to February 2013, discovered a Triceratops horn with soft tissue still intact. This find was published in Acta Histochemica in its February 12, 2013 issue. He was subsequently terminated from his position despite endorsement from his colleague and general editor of the journal, Dr. Steven B. Oppenheimer. Apparently, those who stray from the mandated evolutionist philosophy are considered as traitors to the cause of “science”.12
Based upon these soft-tissue finds a scientist, Dr. Thomas Seiler, a physicist from Germany, decided to run C-14 dating on dinosaur bones from digs in Colorado, Texas, Montana, and Alaska. This testing, carefully carried out to avoid contamination and then compared with fossilized plant materials, showed that the dinosaur bones were all in the range of between 22,000 to 39,000 years old. The members of the Paleochronology group presented their findings at the at the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 13-17, a conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS). Although the findings were accepted by those who were present, this report was later scrubbed from conference website because two chairmen could not accept the findings. One of the most interesting parts of the video report of their presentation shows a slide at the end of the presentation which states that the findings of the report can be explained by rapid horizontal strata formation as observed in laboratory experiments with moving water.13
Despite all of the hot air to the contrary, the evolutionists have nothing that supports their anti-Christ, anti-biblical ravings except their febrile imaginations. Rather than follow the science where it leads, they will do all they can to suppress the truth, just as we are told in Romans 1:18-21. They reject the truth because they are sinners deluded by their foolish hatred of God and refusal to worship, thank and glorify Him as God. The amazing diversity and complexity of life on this planet, coupled with the paucity of evidence, and even evidence to the contrary, is the reason why many scientists and academics, 113,000 in the United States alone, find Darwinian evolution to be an implausible explanation for the origin of life on this planet.14 As believers, we have no business kowtowing to the supposed superiority of the scientific experts when it comes to origins. We know the truth and should proclaim and defend it loud and clear. God bless us as we stand up for the truth and glorify Him.
