King David and his fellow psalmist lived between 1000 before Christ and the date of the last Psalmist is unknown. According to many today, those people lived in the dark ages and had no idea of creation, God, preservation or even science. This would make many of the Psalms as much as 3,000 years old. We need to remember they were probably 3,000 years closer to the original creation. With that in mind, let’s see what they have to say about God’s Creation.
This article series discusses the use of reason in apologetics (i.e., defending the faith) when ministering to Christians and when witnessing to unbelievers, particularly regarding creation/evolution.
Part 1: Why Confront Evolution in Your Witness? Part 2: Handling Evolution in Your Witness. Part 3: Evolution/Creation - Two Starting Points. Part 4: Evolution is Incompatible with the Christian Faith.
Vegetation, Fish, Sun, Moon, Stars: Were they created directly from nothing, or from previously created material?
Let’s examine the words God uses to describe His creative acts starting with His words describing the creation of people. Note that Genesis chapter 1 often gives a more general description, while Genesis chapter 2 reveals additional details to us.
Evolutionists Say: No Experiment Can Disprove Big Bang
Evolutionary models are often presented as being accepted by all scientists. A 2017 Scientific American article pulls back the curtain, letting us see that evolutionists debate whether the standard inflationary Big Bang model should be discarded, and some “new idea” found as a replacement. Prestigious evolutionists wrote this quote in Scientific American magazine. Their words echo the creationist claim that some evolutionary models cannot be falsified. See article for the complete quote.
Summary: We have seen that evolution is a lie, because it is contrary to Scripture. We have looked at the nature of evidence, and found that false things like evolution can have evidence. We have considered how science is sometimes wrong, and how evolution is one of the places where science is wrong. Next we surveyed several of the countless pieces of evidence for evolution, and the weaknesses of that evidence. Creationists see similar weakness in all evidence for evolution. Finally, we evaluated who defines science, and that the scientific community overwhelmingly accepts evolution as having evidence.
Evolution will never make any progress at reaching any truth, wherever it is attempting to explain the result of a miracle through natural means.
In summary, everyone, both the creationist and the evolutionist, is biased in his examination of the evidence. The creationist has a religious belief that there is a Creator God. The evolutionist has a religious belief that there is not a Creator God. Scientific investigation can be used to examine evidence in light of the creationists’ faith-based world view or in light of the evolutionists’ faith-based world view. The creation/evolution debate is a competition between two incompatible faith-based world views.
