1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. "
Romans 1:18 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse."
We are without excuse. Do not forget our God, our Creator! Origin and cosmology sciences are no closer today, with clear, correct answers to the origins of all that we see and know; they are possibly further away! How did everything come into being? Science cannot tell you emphatically, why anything is here!
It is important to say before I begin, I am not condemning all science and scientists. Choosing a career as a scientist can be and should be, a wonderful and helpful to mankind occupation. Due to scientists and their biological, chemical, pharmaceutical and engineering work, we are far better off today than we were just 100 years ago. Scientists help feed us, cloth us, make us well, predict dangerous weather patterns, help our environment and more. People are living longer and easier lives; this is a good thing, right? I respect so much what is done in the works of physical, chemical and medical sciences.
I am a biblical creationist that sorts through science findings and theory, finding the physical evidences put here by the creator God I know; who has given me this gift of faith. My God is the God of all. Whether He has been kind to provide naturalistic answers for questions asked by those who seek or will leave mysteries such as life origins, fully for Himself; time will tell. What I believe is, if we can fully understand what is not understood, there will be a mathematical law from the Law Giver.
WHERE DID ALL THE WATER COME FROM?
Genesis 1:1&2 posted above, states that darkness was over the face of the deep and God's Spirit, The Holy Spirit of God, was hovering over the face of the waters. God created the water.
Let's talk about water; just in terms of depth, volume and weight. We take the oceans as a given fact. Science has NO logical answers for how so much water could be on our planet Earth. Even theoretical propositions are preposterous! They literally say, "Water may have arrived in "ice laden" asteroids and comets". Space.com uses the words "water came from asteroids" (2014 and comets 2019); I will speak on claims of truth later. To those who state these ideas as possible truths; please remember, the average depth of the oceans are 2.5 MILES deep! Further more, our Universe is expanding, so heavenly bodies are moving away from Earth, not coming toward Earth.
NASA says, "An asteroid is a small rocky object that orbits the Sun. Asteroids are smaller than a planet, but they are larger than the pebble-size objects we call meteoroids."
Though random meteorites do hit earth, they're not known to harbor water. Asteroids can be big but rarely strike Earth and are made of ROCK; that is what all photographs show. To say, "the ice is hiding on the inside"; is just clinging to some false science faith based, explanation for Earth's water. Whenever space is used as the explanation for being the supplier of something; water, life, intelligence, that science has no explanation for; it is just a tactic to remove the topic from the debate table. We are all smarter than that, to be happy with, "Oh, OK, it came from space".
The big bang theory is only that. You want to talk about grasping, random thoughts; search it out and read yourself what is said. Here is my point; as the claims of science, big bang or expansion is believed to have taken place with swirling materials that somehow found gravitational concentric's which, pulled this matter together into planets and so fourth; where do you get all the liquid water? GOD STARTED CREATION WITH LIQUID WATER! It was not bused in on asteroids.
THE WEIGHT OF WATER
Let's do some math. Let's take a gallon jug of water which, weighs 8.3 pounds; it takes around 8 of those gallons to fill one cubic foot of space. We will multiply that number by the average depth of the ocean: So, 8.3 pounds x 8 for volume x 12,000 feet of depth = 796,800 pounds of water; or about 400 tons. The water, from the surface, to the ocean floor, for a one square foot of viewed ocean surface, weighs as much as 100 automobiles. So, to "create" one square foot of ocean; (think of a small picture frame) from the surface to the bottom; an asteroid of pure ice (never observed); weighing as much as 100 cars; has to find the earth, strike the earth, not destroy the earth and deposit it's content of space water. "Better than Fuji, it's space water" . That is just ONE SQUARE FOOT, from top to bottom; and there are more than 139 MILLION SQUARE MILES of ocean surface on our blue planet! ONE square mile contains almost 28 MILLION SQUARE FEET! So, one square mile of ocean surface; has a top to bottom water weight of nearly 2.8 billion cars!
So, is science saying, asteroids, of pure ice, weighing 10 times all the cars in the USA; crashed into the earth to make JUST ONE square mile of ocean from top to bottom? Then it happened 138 million more times? Yikes! Scientists believe, some heavenly bodies, Mars, moons, have some water; vapor or ice crystals but not constant, liquid water, even remotely like Earth. With facts like this, how does anyone hold to; "we will not entertain the idea of a creator god"; "we do not need a creator god to explain this" or "there is no creator god."?
BEEFS WITH "TRUTH LANGUAGE" AND EVOLUTION
My first beef is, theory is put forward in truth language to the public. Evolutionary theory has not one law that can be quoted by any scientist. Think about what science and engineering has given us in the last 160 years. That is how long ago Darwin presented his theory. It is still theory to the explanation of the greater whole, of which we are aware. This does not stop every nature show, which displays Our Lord's incredible creation, from using narration tag lines like, "through millions of years of evolution, the ---- has developed this unique ability"; thus applying known, small portions, of natural selection for the explanation of the totality of life . This is a lie and please do not buy into this thought process! Narration tags such as, "natures handy work" and "due to it's environment, evolution came up with a fix for the problem"; and many narration lines are used and put forth as truth during nature and evolutionary programming. These "feast your eyes on nature" TV shows, give no credit to the God of the bible, Who claims, He is The Creator of all! What this dialog does, is to remove our True Creator God from His creative work; takes away the praise He deserves and creates idols of words that have no power or do not even exist; giving them the credit! How does the word, nature have power to create or change? Nature is just a word we use to refer to all things flora and fauna; it has no power. How does the word evolution have power to change? Evolution, is the theory of how one kind of flora and fauna, is claimed to have changed into another kind of flora and fauna. The word evolution has no power.
TRUTHS ABOUT CHANGES IN BIOLOGY
All of biology and creation changes minute by minute. One minute from now, you are one minute older as is everything; headed toward further oxidation and death. Biology can change and some call this evolution. Whatever truths there are to be found associated with natural selection, they are the work of God. Today's virus's are not the same virus that they were years ago. Selective breeding, in any creature, can bring about change. The idea of natural selection has truth to it. Genetic scientists can manipulate the genome to make better plants and animals for human use. These are really mutations. Some scientists and many layman believe, mutation is the necessary event and precursor to evolution for kind change. So, with no evidence from the fossil record for kind to kind change; millions of years are piled on to say, "it would take this great amount of time for these micro mutations in nature, to change a form from one kind into another kind." What we do not see, and have NO supporting evidence from the fossil records; that ANYTHING changes from one kind into another kind. Evolutionary scientists take micro, mutation changes and theoretically apply it to macro kind change. This has never been proven to take place; there is no evidence in the fossil record of this taking place and there will never be evidence. Taking various creature fossils, of similar and dissimilar kinds, science will stand firmly to say, "this one came before this one"; but no time line observation can be truly applied; it is merely hopeful assumptions in attempt to verify their work. This guess work is enhanced with artwork and video animation, creating a pleasing, salable but false reality for reader and viewer.
LOOK AT WHAT GOD TELLS US, BY KIND CREATION
Genesis1:11 And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.
God tells us throughout the creation narrative, of by kind creation, speaking of all living things, except man, who was made in the image of God, not from an ape! I have heard it said by creationists, as God states, He made creatures male and female and that KIND, refers to mating pairs. Such as, a lizard cannot conceive with a bird or dog with a cat and so fourth. Of course this all becomes much more finite as conception between a hawk and duck or raccoon and fox is not possible.
Darwinian theory says, life sprang fourth from a prehistoric pond. They are correct in this way;
God says, "Let the EARTH bring fourth living creatures..." God says to Adam, .."till you return to the GROUND, for out of it you were taken". God's creation utilizes the same building materials and these materials, God speaks into existence from the ground. The genetic likeness from man to monkey or man to worm (70% of 1.5% of DNA) are simply our Creator God's complex, building block materials. God utilized these to make ALL of life (all of creation); so of course there are similarities in fleshes. The scientific reality of mankind's physical being, we are but water and a few other elements!
God is the giver of life, the animator and the One who sustains ALL OF LIFE.
THE HUNT FOR FOSSILS!
The lack of supporting evidence in the fossil record for type/kind change is so important, as is the witness of singular and unchanging forms; but these are facts science brushes away or ignores. Much money and support are given for evolutionary sciences and archaeology investigating and presenting the supposed, missing links from monkey and man. As the ape is the most human like creature, those who discount Our Creator God say, "both man and ape have a common ancestor". This thought is also based on genetic information that shows we share with primates; but all of this is just prying the question, "Where did we come from?" but with the prerequisite of, "God, is not to be included"; so the stories begin.
One of the problems, for those in the field of study; searching for, finding and comparing fossils is, the low number of ape type and human fossils. All people involved desire to make that big discovery that will bring them notoriety. Normally, apes and man have one child per pregnancy; there just aren't that many fossils. Now, I believe, that most fossils were deposited in God's flood; where He saved Noah and his family. There were not that many people on Earth at that time, and ape like creature numbers would be low; just like now; when compared to say, grazing animals. So, few human and ape fossils were deposited. This needs to be stated but I do not want to go down a rabbit trail.
THE SMALLEST CREATURES MAKE GREAT FOSSILS!
What about a creatures that make hundreds or even thousands of babies, like crustaceans and insects? Hey, they even have exoskeletons; you know, no bones, hard bodies and they make great fossils! If fossils were deposited over millions of years, and evolution were true, we would see changes there, right? Are there lots of bug and ocean creeping creature fossils? Yep. God made lots of creeping things, number wise and kind wise, much more than exists today. Do we see anything changing from one kind into another kind? Nope. Science cannot tell you how a bee became a bee or an ant an ant and evolutionary sciences do not want to talk about it! Look for yourself! What we see in the fossil record is stasis. Stasis means, "not changing". Not only do we see no change but we see many of the same creatures we have today, in the same form as they are today.
This is what God says about His creeping things:
Genesis 1: 25 "And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good."
All by their kinds! Just like today, just like in the fossil record.
WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT MAKING MAN
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
RIDICULED FOR FAITH BASED BELIEFS & THOUGHTS
My second problem is a bit more personal but goes hand in hand with the first. Godless big bang, ice asteroids and evolution are all taught in schools as more or less, truth. Creation and those who believe it are looked down upon and their thoughts and points of view are scorned, belittled and ridiculed. How many times have I heard, "go read a science book" yet there are no logical answers to my questions. The other response, when pinned down is, "We don't have to know, we are scientifically searching for the answers; bringing God into the discussion negates the work to be done." Scientists up to and into the 17th century did not believe this; they believed in God and did science work making some of the greatest scientific discoveries. Of course, there are scientists today who believe in God or even better are Christians. I thank God for them and pray for more. Furthermore, how does the continued searching for godless answers, by brilliant people, help mankind? Those trained, make their own choices but are not the sciences intended to help mankind? What has been gained from ignoring a creator God and seeking a godless answer? It must be understood that answers found to naturalistic questions are allowed by God. These answers can be held to as, behold the wonder of our
creator or the false view of naturalistic origin.
I have a God given faith; this is the Faith of God which, is a saving faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ. In this faith, my eyes are opened to the truth of the scripture in the Holy Bible. Along with this truth, I see the lies and suppression of the truth, by those who do not share my faith, as stated in Romans 1; portion printed above.
Please see the link buttons below to noted scientists who believed in God and to Dr. James Tour, a great chemical scientist, Rice university, who speaks of the falsities in origin of life sciences.
We covered thoughts concerning all the water!
Science does not have a solid answer for origins of the incredible amount of matter that exists.
God says, He made it.
Science has no idea how dead matter came to life.
God says, He is the giver of life.
Science has no reasoning of how life exists in such huge numbers and variety of forms; how those forms are so complex, beautiful and finely tuned.
God says, He looked at everything He made and it was very good!
Science says, "Through millions of years of evolution, basic forms of life became higher and more complex forms of life" This is wrong on so many levels! Science cannot fully comprehend the daily operation and function of a yeast cell! There is nothing in the fossil record that shows change from one kind into another kind.
God says, He made each thing after it's kind.
Evolutionary sciences claims almost endless changes so that there is never truly stasis.
Observation of the fossil record does not prove this out! We see life forms today that are unchanged from the fossil record.
Those who stand with atheistic, evolutionary thought, stand condemned by God! God's first commandment to us, "Thou shall have no other gods before Me" This is a most horrible and ugly sin.
