Creation vs Evolution
In all my thoughts of the topic of creation vs evolution, even as a young boy growing up, I could never get used to the theory or idea that we had all come from apes, and they were our long lost ancestors and we their descendants. As a boy I would often wonder, if we had evolved from them, then why are we still here on earth together with them. A rather childish thought but one that must and need explanation in order for this theory to be valid in any way.
In this controversy of creation vs evolution, I still marvel at the fact that the world has taken such an idea that was presented by the man responsible for conjuring the idea, as only a theory, and man has twisted it into our society and the minds of children as a proven fact, something that has never been proven, nor ever will be. Hence the name The Theory of Evolution.
That there has never been any proof of evolution and over the years as it has morphed its way into a factual aspect, to me only proves what scripture say about man’s tremendous rebellion against God and how satan has thwarted the truth of our very being and existence, an existence that has a purpose. Evolution gives man no purpose and a beginning that comes by chance or fluke. I would believe that this is where the problem begins and where the creation vs evolution battle starts.
When I view creation and the controversy of creation vs evolution, I must take into fact the essence and attributes of a Holy God. When I see God as all perfect and an organised God, a God that has order and in His omnipotent attribute has created a universe that is absolutely organised and perfect in every way. Creatures that have such systems to sustaining life that the only conclusion to their development is that they had to be designed. When reading the sensibility of God’s Word , evolution becomes an absurd idea. Charles Darwin himself, the founder of the theory of evolution and author of The Origin of Species, became so very baffled when he began to examine the human eye. The complexity of the eye structure was so intricate that he concluded that it could only have been of some perfect design, and for this one must conclude a designer. This startling observation would have certainly brought Darwin’s work to a halt had he the knowledge of the eye and its components of movement and operation that we have today. Darwin quotes, “To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.”(Darwin, Charles. The Origin of Species, J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd, London, 1971, p. 167.)
During the remainder of this essay, Creation vs Evolution I will list a couple discoveries and ideas that I truly believe have been shoved aside by evolutionists in order that the theory of evolution could take the place of truth and how Scripture relates to the rebuke of such a theory. Also some of the deceiving theories that scientist have and evolutionists have conjured to support their ideas and rebuke the existence of our Heavenly father.
You may have heard of the geological column. Evolutionists and anti-creationists claim the geological column as being layers and layers of sedimentary rock that blanket the entire earth. Secular scientists also claim that this strata represents life on earth for over more than 600 million years. What the secular do not tell us is that these layers of sedimentary rock, which can be KM’s in thickness in some places are layers of flood liberated deposits of sandstone, shale and limestone. Simply put, the geological column has been misinterpreted due to a failure of the scientific community to recognize the occurrence of the global flood, and there is evidence these formations are relatively young.
The flood strata does not represent a history of millions of years of accumulation, but is an obvious record of a world-wide devastating catastrophe that nothing was able to survive naturally. One of the most amazing discoveries are the poly-strata trees that have been found embedded all throughout the layers of the geological column. These trees have all been found to be of the same time frame and age giving tremendous evidence of a resulting runoff from the flood. The very fact that these trees are from the same era and yet exist throughout the geological column contradict a sedimentary layer 600 million years old and show how they were deposited as the result of the receding waters of the great flood.
And the waters receded continually from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters decreased. 4 Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and indeed the surface of the ground was dry. 14 And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.
Creation vs Evolution and the Geological Column
In light of this understanding of truth behind the geological column comes another contradiction that the evolutionists and anti- creationists tend to adhere to, and that is the age of the dinosaurs existence. Within the battle of creation vs evolution, secular science and archaeologists will claim that their findings of fossils to be millions of years old, yet the contradiction lies in the fact that these fossils are found within the so called geological column, and from the evidence revealed from the poly-strata trees deposited throughout the column there can be no proof of these fossils being millions of years old. In fact their age would be more near to that of the trees themselves. All a result of a devastating catastrophe that would have claimed every living thing at the same time.

The evolutionist has only two choices to solve this dilemma:
1. The trees stood upright for millions of years while the sediment layers formed around them.
2. The trees grew through hundreds of feet of solid sedimentary rock looking for sunlight.
There is a third way to look at this:
3. The trees were buried upright in a big flood.
“Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you;
He eats grass like an ox.
16 See now, his strength is in his hips,
And his power is in his stomach muscles.
17 He moves his tail like a cedar;
The sinews of his thighs are tightly knit.
18 His bones are like beams of bronze,
His ribs like bars of iron.
19 He is the first of the ways of God;
Only He who made him can bring near His sword.
20 Surely the mountains yield food for him,
And all the beasts of the field play there.
21 He lies under the lotus trees,
In a covert of reeds and marsh.
22 The lotus trees cover him with their shade;
The willows by the brook surround him.
23 Indeed the river may rage,
Yet he is not disturbed;
He is confident, though the Jordan gushes into his mouth,
24 Though he takes it in his eyes,
Or one pierces his nose with a snare.

It claims that in 1980 the rubber-soled boot with petrified cowboy leg, bones and all was found in a dry creek bed near the West Texas town of Iraan, by Mr. Jerry Stone, an employee of Corvette oil company. The boot was hand made by the M. L. Leddy boot company of San Angelo, Texas which began manufacturing boots in 1936. Only the bones inside the boot are fossilized, and not the boot, revealing that some materials fossilize more sooner than others. The bones of the partial leg and foot within the boot were revealed by an elaborate set of C.T. Scans performed at Harris Methodist Hospital in Bedford, Texas on July 24, 1997.

My father was a Geo-physicist working for Mobil Oil (with a degree in Bio-chemistry) for a long time. He worked with another guy who went on a fossil dig because he had a friend there who was supervising it. He said they found a bunch of T-Rex bones and they were using college kids in Paleontology to dig. He got to get up close and personal with the kids and watch them work. He walked over to one who was sifting dirt and removing items that were to be thrown out. My father’s friend asked the student why he was getting rid of this little stack of items dug up from around the remains of the dinos. The student said “Because we are trying to re-create the scene and explain what happened here, and these things don’t fit the story.” He asked the student if he could have a handful of the stuff in the bucket. The student said, “Sure.” Guess what was being discarded from the dig? Tons of rabbit bones and jaws! Found right along side three T-rexes!
41 “Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook,
Or snare his tongue with a line which you lower?
2 Can you put a reed through his nose,
Or pierce his jaw with a hook?
3 Will he make many supplications to you?
Will he speak softly to you?
4 Will he make a covenant with you?
Will you take him as a servant forever?
5 Will you play with him as with a bird,
Or will you leash him for your maidens?
6 Will your companions make a banquet of him?
Will they apportion him among the merchants?
7 Can you fill his skin with harpoons,
Or his head with fishing spears?
8 Lay your hand on him;
Remember the battle-
Never do it again!
9 Indeed, any hope of overcoming him is false;
Shall one not be overwhelmed at the sight of him?
10 No one is so fierce that he would dare stir him up.
Who then is able to stand against Me?
11 Who has preceded Me, that I should pay him?
Everything under heaven is Mine.
12 “I will not conceal his limbs,
His mighty power, or his graceful proportions.
13 Who can remove his outer coat?
Who can approach him with a double bridle?
14 Who can open the doors of his face,
With his terrible teeth all around?
15 His rows of scales are his pride,
Shut up tightly as with a seal;
16 One is so near another
That no air can come between them;
17 They are joined one to another,
They stick together and cannot be parted.
18 His sneezings flash forth light,
And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
19 Out of his mouth go burning lights;
Sparks of fire shoot out.
20 Smoke goes out of his nostrils,
As from a boiling pot and burning rushes.
21 His breath kindles coals,
And a flame goes out of his mouth.
22 Strength dwells in his neck,
And sorrow dances before him.
23 The folds of his flesh are joined together;
They are firm on him and cannot be moved.
24 His heart is as hard as stone,
Even as hard as the lower millstone.
25 When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid;
Because of his crashings they are beside themselves.
26 Though the sword reaches him, it cannot avail;
Nor does spear, dart, or javelin.
27 He regards iron as straw,
And bronze as rotten wood.
28 The arrow cannot make him flee;
Slingstones become like stubble to him.
29 Darts are regarded as straw;
He laughs at the threat of javelins.
30 His undersides are like sharp potsherds;
He spreads pointed marks in the mire.
31 He makes the deep boil like a pot;
He makes the sea like a pot of ointment.
32 He leaves a shining wake behind him;
One would think the deep had white hair.
33 On earth there is nothing like him,
Which is made without fear.
34 He beholds every high thing;
He is king over all the children of pride.”
These examples of how the enemy has distorted the truth of our existence is by far just a small portion of the many other examples of the lies mankind is led to believe. I see these scientific examples for what they are as corporeal evidence of creation, a creation that is not 600 million years old but in a Biblical perspective that seems to lean toward that of at least 6500 years. My true understanding of creation comes from my belief in a loving God, an all powerful God who willingly provides a way to be reconciled to him through an amazing plan of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. As I read the Scriptures and the extreme sense that is made of it and conviction that is thrown upon me by the Holy Spirit of man’s condition and our depravity only truly secures my faith and in understanding that “in the beginning” our heavenly Father began creating His plan of redemption for a rebellious creature that He loves so much.
I truly hope Creation vs Evolution has enlightened believers and non- believers that have made their way to this post to realize the real truths of our Creator and our existence.
