The Bible in its entirety condemns the theories of both cosmic and organic evolution. It declares in no uncertain terms that God created (brought into existence) all the material and moral creations; the animate and inanimate things, and that He is the first and last cause of all existing universes and the things therein.
The Bible declares that God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 8:1-9; 1-7; 102:25-27; Isaiah 45:18); God created great whales and every living creature (Genesis 1:20); God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:7,19-25; 5:1-2; 9:6); All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made (John 1:3); God created all things by Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:9; Colossians 1:15-18); The upholding of all things by the Word of His power (Hebrews 1:3); Thou has created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created (Revelation 4:11).
It is the law of nature that nothing reproduces anything greater than itself. If this is true of all species today, of which we have millions of examples, then it was true originally. The vast creations of matter and life had to come into existence by a superior power, not an inferior force. One thing is certain: all intelligence and matter could not have come from one or any number of molecules of unintelligence. The most that has ever been done or can possibly be done is to demonstrate the law of improvement of a species through breeding and cultivation. No new species has been or can be produced by such law. If left alone the plants and animals would degnerate, not improve themselves in any degree.
Therefore, we must conclude that no amount of unintelligent matter could produce intelligence or intelligent beings - anything higher than itself. The intelligent and innumberable self-producing species of creatures, each with its own eternal and consistent traits, distinct flavors, and infinite combinations of chemicals, could never be the product of unintelligent matter. Each one of the millions of creatures that reproduce their own kind by fixed and eternal laws must be the work of an all-powerful and all-wise Creator.
The Bible declares (10 times in Genesis 1) that everything created by God was given power to reproduce its own kind. No one thing could break this law and produce any other kind (Genesis 1:20-28). 1,656 years later it had not been broken (Genesis 7:14). Now, after more than 6,000 years the law of reproduction is still unbroken. The sponge is still a sponge and has not become an oyster, octuopus, a turtle, frog, fish or crab. None of these have reproduced anything except their own kind. No lowly earth-worm has ever turned into a spider, tarantula, scorpion, lizard, tortoise, snake, or crocodile. No bug, bird, or animal has ever changed from its own kind or reproduced another kind which was fertile and could produce a new kind. The crossing of an ass and a mare, for instance, will produce a mule which cannot reporduce itself. No monkey has ever produced a man and the "missing-link" is still missing and always will be.
All of this is quite remarkable in view of the fact that there are over 2,000,000 million different species of plant and animal life. Each species proves the law of reporduction established by God - after his own kind. It is claimed that there are more than 1,000,000 million species of insects. Species of beetles number 250,000; buterflies and moths - 110,000; shellfish - 80,000; snails - 80,000; arachnids -60,000; flies - 40,000; barnacles, crabs, lobsters and shrimp - 25,000; fish - 20,000; bees - 10,000; wasps - 10,000; worms - 9,000; ants - 5,000; birds - 1,200; and cockroaches - 1,000. Besides these, there are many species of larger animals, and over 180,000 species of plants. Species of fungi number 100,000; algae 20,000; mosses 20,000; corals 5,000; and sponges 3,000, besides many other species of living things.
All species exist in great variety, and the so-called "proofs" of evolutionists are merely variations, or minor changes within the same species. Out of billions of living organisms and fossils there is no evidence of the slightest tendency to evolve out of the original kind to which each belongs. There is only evidence of development and normal growth; but these are not evolution! The theory of evolution teaches transmutation, a change in nature, substance, form, and alteration of essence by a slow and gradual process of mutation from species to another, and from the lower to the higher. This has never been done, nor can it be done. In nature we find endless variety within each species or kind, but no change from one species to another. Without a change of species there can be no evolution. God has made life so that it interbreeds closely related variations; and when interbreeding is attempted between different kinds of species it is found that there is an impassable gulf which cannot be crossed.
Life multiplies abundantly. One bacterium in 24 hours can produce 281,500,000,000,000 descendents. A fly can lay 500 eggs in a season, each of which can develop into a fly capable of laying 500 eggs of its own. If all eggs hatched and survived, the original fly would have enough descendents in 6 months to cover the earth with flies, to a depth of about 50 feet! A common potato bug is said to be capable of producing 60,000 offspring in a season; a single sunfish lays 30,000,000 eggs a season; an oyster 100,000,000; a codfish 10,000,000; a toad 20,000; spiders have 2,000 babies in one cocoon; a logger-head turtle lays 1,000 eggs at a time; and a pair of meadow mice could produce 1,000,000 offspring in a year. An elm tree produces 1,584,000,000 seeds and a barley seed 18,000 grains. But, out of the billions of yearly reproductions in nature, not one monkey's tail has been produced by anything except a monkey! There is no proof of man in various stages from a molecule to a monkey, or from a monkey to a man!
There can be no evolution without the power of reproduction in living things. Since reproduction is a prior condition to evolution, it cannot be a product of it. Hence, we fact the logical necessity for the creation of life and its power of continued reproduction. The power of the reproduction is not in the embryo, but only in the mature parent. An egg cannot produce an egg! It is also true that the egg is not improvable by itself. Improvement can come only in and through the mature form! Therefore, the parent form of life must have been created in the beginning to have produced an egg from which offspring alone can come.
Science has proved that dead matter cannot generate life; and that only life can come from pre-existing life. When test tubes were filled with hay and other organic matter, when all life-germs were completely destroyed, when the tube was hermetically sealed to exclude outer air, and while it was absolutely free of living germs, not one vestige of life appeared. The attempt to get the living out of the dead completely failed. The theory of spontaneous generation of evolutionists has had to be given up. It is now recognized that life can only come from life. All life is dependent upon other life; the lower upon the higher; the simple upon the complex; the powerless upon the powerful; the impersonal upon the personal; the unintelligent upon the intelligent; the non-existing upon the existing; the natural upon the spiritual; the temporary upon the eternal. Nothing can come from nothing or be produced by nothing!
The argument of evolution from embryology -
That embryos of different forms of life are somewhat alike so they must have come from a common ancestor - has utterly failed, as have the theories of natural selection, and the survival of the fittest. The similarity of embryos and their fast development to full growth are contray to the principles of the evolutionary hypothesis. The chief foundation of evolution is that of a slow and tedious process over millions and millions of years. This, the evolution teachers have to argue due to the fact that no single example of evolution from one species to another can be cited, or found. Human and other embryos pass through various stages of growth very rapidly. In the case of some the progress of growth is so rapid that it is miraculous. Thus, evolutionists are forced to believe in miracles, which they deny, in other fields, but sustain in their own, in the effort to prove their claims. It is now known that there are radical differences between the embryos of vertebrates (backboned animals) and invertebrates (animals without backbones) which we would not have, if all things had a common ancestor. Some similarity among embryos of all forms of life should be expected, since all start individually from a single life-germ or a combination of two.
If a botanist would be asked the difference betwee an oak, a palm-tree, and a lichen, he would declare that they are separated from one another by the broadest line of classification. But if the germs of these plants were placed before him, to choose one from the other, he could not do it. Under the most powerful microscope they would yield no clue. If analyed by the chemist they would still keep their secret. The same is true of the life-germ of various animals and man. No one can tell which is which. What makes the little speck grow in the millions of different kinds of creatures? What is there which the eye cannot see that determines which fo the many creatures it shall be? Only a personal and an infinite intelligent Being could make such unfailing laws of reproduction - after his kind.
It is further argued that man and monkey are so similar that they must have come from a common ancestor. This is neither sound logic nor sound science. Resemblance proves nothing but resemblance. Similarity proves nothing but similarity. Resemblance and similarity run throughout all nature in things that have no connection with each other. Resemblance or similarity on some points is to be expected even though we accept creation by God. Such only magnifies the fact of an intelligent operator. This is true whether it is the Creator or a manufacturer as in every factory of man. The wheel, for example, is the same in the wagon, the car, locomotive and airplane. But such similarity does not prove that the wagon evolved into an automobile, then into a locomotive, and finally into an airplane.
All animals and men have the same kind of faculties to breathe, eat food, and perform other bodily functions, but no such similarity proves close relationship. God made them thus so that all could exist alike in the same air and on similar foods. The dissimilarities between man and lower animals, not only in body, but also in brain, spirit and soul faculties prove that they are NOT vitally related. The differences between man and monkey are so wide that any single bodily part is sufficient in itself to prove whether it is a part of man or monkey.
Evolutionists themselves confirm this fact by their promptness in deciding whether a bone is from a monkey or a man. There are hundreds of differences between the bodies of men and apes, and thousands of differences between these two in mental, moral, spiritual, and habitual matters which prove evolution of man from apes or lower life an IMPOSSIBILITY.
The similarities between man and lower animals could be used to prove a process of degneration from man more than a process of evolution to man. The Bible teaches that God made man before He made land animals - on day 6. Therefore, man came first, and then the monkey (Genesis 2:7, 19-25). Darwin's argument that plants and animals have within themselves the tendencies to vary of their own accord in many and all directions to an unlimited degree, has been disproved many time. Mendel's experiments prove conclusively that plants and animals, even under man's selective skill in breeding, do not tend to vary in all directions and to an unlimited degree; but that the variations are within strict limits and work according to fixed laws producing unvarying results. The theory of natural selection and of inheritance of acquired characters has failed of proof. The forms of vegetables, plants, and animals that man succeeds in improving by human selection and cultivation revert rapidly to type as soon as man's directing skill is removed. In all man's selection and cultivation he can work only within the limits of the species. No change into new species has been produced either by natural or artivicial selection. The iron law of sterility stands guard at the far frontiers of the species and everything continues to reproduce after his kind.
There is a certain potency of development implanted in all things, but such potential powers are led out into actual development or improvement, not through resident forces, as evolution teaches, but only through outside intervention and intelligent help. Man can develop the wild rose int the American Beauty, or the wild pony into the Kentucky thoroughbred, by selection, better environment, breeding, etc., but its most significant that these improvements do not continue to increase, or persist, when things are left to themselves. The rose reverts to a wild rose if left alone, and the horse begins to go back to its degenerated type the very minute man's skill is omitted.
If man neglects himself, he will revert to a worse and lower type of man - like those who have been discovered on desert islands or in jungles. If the mind is neglected it will degenerate into imbecility and ignorance. Solitary confinement has the power to unmake men's minds and leave them idiots. If the conscience is neglected, it will run off into lawlessness and sin. The soul that is neglected will go into ruin and depravity.
To use the argument that the savages of heathen darkness are more like monkeys than men in the civilized world is no proof of evolution: it is proof of degeneration. Man fell from original sinlessness and the highest degree of intelligence to the present status. Adam had more intelligence the day he was created than all men together have now. He could name all things and all men today who learn all their lives cannot yet do this (Genesis 2:19).
Degeneration explains the present uncivilized parts of the world, and the so-called cave-men - the Peking man, the Heidelberg, the Neanderthal, the Cro-Magnon man and others. All problems between true science and the Bible can be solved by the facts of degeneration, or with the Bible truth of a pre-Adamite world. Belief in the pre-Adamite system allows that the earth could be millions of years old. Pre-historic animals could have been part of that system, as well as ny different type of man, if such is ever excluded from Adam's race by established proof.
Fossil remains have been referred to as one of the strongest proofs of evolution. But evolutionists themselves acknowledge that this proof is extremely fragmentary, limited, and obscure due to the fact of only a few fossil remains. Hence, they are forced to guess without proof. The missing links between man and monkey have never been found. The manufactured bones of pre-historic men are FAKES.
- The Piltdown man, for example, was no man at all! The story is that in a gravel pit in Sussex, England, near Piltdown Common, 2 or 3 bits of a skull bone, a piece of jaw bone, and a tooth were found by different persons in different places in different years. From these few scraps, so-called "scientists" constructed the Piltdown man and named it the Dawn-man of the dateless past. From the same bones another later type was made by another team of scientists. Finally, it was acknowledge that the jaw-bone and tooth did not belong to the skull, but were those of a chimpanzee..!
- The Java-man was built in Java from a skull bone, leg bone, 2 molars, and plaster-of-Paris.
- The Heidelberg-man was built in Germany from a jaw bone which was unquestionalbly human.
- The Peking-man of China was made from human skull fragments found in a cave in 1929.
- The Swanscombe-man of England was made from the back and one side of a woman's skull.
- The Fontechevade-man of France was made from a part of a skull.
- The first Neanderthal-man was made from a skull cap in Germany, which one great German pathologists declared to be the cranium of an idiot.
- The Australopithecus Africanus-man of Africa was made from an ape skull found in a number of other ape skulls and bones in Africa; and the Hesperopithecus Haroldcookii, the Nebraska-man, was made from a single pig tooth said to be 1,000,000 years old.
Pictures of these, the man-made specimens, have been the so-called proof shown in school textbooks. Such are the hoaxes which are being passed upon our innocent boys and girls by some educators in the name of science!
The old geological scheme to prove evolution has also been repudiated. Instead of the older rocks being found at the bottom and the younger rocks at the top, as would be the case if evolution were true, it is now found that the opposite is often the case. This explodes the evolution-theory of natural building up of the strata.
The fact of two universal floods instead of one (one in Lucifer's day and one in Noah's day) and a later division of the earth can easily explain the fossil remains being where they are. In Lucifer's flood God turned the earth upside down by earthquakes (Genesis 1:2). This accounts for fossil remains being found deep in the earth underneath many layers of solid rock. Such things never would have been there without the earthquakes and judgment of God.
It is evident that many fossils came from a great catastrophe, being entombed in the strata instead of being slowly buried by sedimentation over millions of years. We read of whole schools of fish, covering large fields which have been found with every indication of a violent and sudden death. They are not in a relaxed position but often with their head twisted around to their tails and every fin extended, which is the position in which a fish dies when overtaken by an enemy or some catastrophe. Historians tell us that the earth has undergone one great and indescribable catastrophe. This happened at Lucifer's flood or when the earth was divided into continents.
That there was a dividing of the earth in the days of Peleg is clear from Genesis 10:25. Such a shaking up of the entire earth, as well as the flood-catastrophe of Lucifer's time could have caused fossils to become deeply submerged.
The Arctic regions give clear evidence of a sudden calamity. In their extensive fields of fossilized and frozen mammoths, where multitudes of giant creatures have been found, some have been discovered with their stomachs filled with undigested food, and in some instances with their mouths also full of the food they were eating. This shows that they were feeding quietly when the crisis came and that they were destroyed with suddenness. That the Arctic regions had tropical climate when these beasts were destroyed seems true, for they had tropical food in their mouths. Evidently they were frozen immediately when God witheld the sun, moon and stars from shining on the earth during Lucifer's flood (Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 14:12-14; Jeremiah 4:23-26; Ezekiel 28:11-17; Psalm 104:6-9; 2 Peter 3:5-8).
Regarding Noah's flood, God commanded male and female of every species to be kept alive in the ark to replenish the earth after his kind when the flood was over (Genesis 6:18-22; 7:2-16). Had the evolutionists been right, this would have been unnecesary. Noah could have merely saved a couple of molecules, turned them loose after the flood and eventually, we could have the innumerable living things again in all their varieties.
If evolution is responsible for all the vast creations in space and the endless varieties of species of life on the innumerable planets, then why is the law not working today? And why do we not have actual and unquestionable examples of the various stages of evolution from the lowest to the highest forms of life? If evolution ever worked, it should be working today do that every form or stage of development could be seen as proof that the lower forms of life will eventually be the higher in the ages to come. It is not strange that the process has been at a standstill for the period man has been on earth to observe the law of evolution at work? Is it not strange that man has not produced one example of change from one species to another, not even to the losing of the monkey tail and hair?
There is evidence now that the whole world and all in it are degenerating and moving toward some climax of judgment and re-creation, instead of evolving upward into higher and better forms. In chemistry, which is closest to the deeper facts and forces of inanimate matter and life, there is no evidence of a surge upward. Not only are the laws of chemistry affinity static and unchangeable as to their operations, but there is a disintegrating tendency downward instead of upward that seems to characterize all matter. The tendency of atoms of high atomic weight to break up into other atoms of lower weight seems to be the universal tendency of all matter. Scientists declare that this is also true in the vegetable and animal kingdoms.
The evolution theory is not only ABSURD - its so-called "proofs" are so contradictory that they cause increasing doubt regarding its guesses. Tyndal says that the world began in a fire-mist that contracted as it became cold; but Spencer says it was a cold-cloud that became heated and contracted. The age of man is estimated all the way from 550,000,000 years to as little as 6,000,000 years. The age of the earth is put by guessers as 10 billion to the lowest estimate of 10 million years. This proves nothing but the unreliablility of data which is used in the effort to prove diverse conclusions.
Dogs don't have kittens, cows don't have lambs, and pigs don't produce rabbits. Birds produce birds. Fish produce fish. Each species brings forth after its own kind. That's no theory! That's a fact! Why then should we believe that man originates from another species - like an ape?! If evolution is true, then it is proof that the Bible is false, because the Scriptures say that each animal brings forth after its own kind. The whole of creation stands in contradiction to the "theory-tale" of evolution.
You can't prove evolution. It is something you have to accept by "faith." You have believed what you have heard. You have seen and had faith in evolutionary drawings of reversed osteoporosis. Evolution can only be accepted on blind faith...because it cannot be proven.
On the other hand, you can prove God's existence. A building is proof that there was a builder. A painting is absolute proof that there was a painter. You don't need to see him to believe he exits. His painting is all the evidence you need. It wouldn't be there if he didn't exist. Creation proves absolutely that there is a Creator. There wouldn't be a creation if there wasn't a Creator. A child can understand that!
