Creation and Evolution

A bird, a plane and ‘intelligent design.’

We all agree that a plane is ‘designed,’ that it ‘has a purpose,’ and we agree that it ‘has a creator.’ But there is controversy regarding the bird. Some will say: The bird has no design, no purpose, and no creator. (see Discussion Page)

We’re talking about your Ancestors

Please read on…..

When I was a child, I remember family conversations that went something like this.
.
“My goodness, doesn’t she look like her Grandmother… Look at her eyes, her bright blue eyes — guess where she got those…”
.
Nowadays things are different. On a recent BBC documentary, David Attenborough expressed it this way.
.
While he was holding a newborn baby in his arms, he said, “[This baby’s] ancestry like that of all of us stretches back over 500 million years to a tiny little worm-like creature swimming in the bottom of the sea.”
.
Continuing to refer to the child, he said, “His backbone and jaw came from the early fish, his limbs and lungs from amphibians. The reptiles gave him his watertight skin. Tiny nocturnal mammals donated a bigger brain, sharper senses, and the manner in which he was born. His hands and colour vision came from the fruit-eating primates; and his larger brain and greater intelligence from the first humans.”
.
Here is Attenborough’s grand conclusion. “So all our features of our body can be traced back to our ancient ancestors.”

Your Ancestors!

Who were your ancestors? As you trace your family tree, be sure that you get it right.
.
Be careful, evolutionists believe that once upon a time your family did have an actual tree in the jungle — which they called home. Before you enter this so called ancestral home, beware, some of its ghosts may still be there.
.
Be especially aware of tiny worm-like creatures, as well as fish, amphibians, reptiles, nocturnal mammals, and primates masquerading as your ancestors?

Origins

The origin of Evolution: “In the beginning there was nothing — and it exploded”

The origin of Creation: “In the beginning there was God.”

Choice

Concerning the origin of all things, I accept the miraculous rather than the ridiculous.

Pertinent Question:

Did God create Koalas, or did they evolve from distant ancestors that were genetically simplistic and very different?
Knowing the correct answer has wide implications …for it also reveals the vital truth about human origins.

Cosmic Evolution

Sir Terry Pratchett stated it succinctly: “In the beginning there was nothing, and it exploded.”
.
“…the universe, and time itself, had a beginning in the Big Bang, about 15 billion years ago.” Stephen Hawking

 

The Fundamental Claims of Evolution

Below are listed the major, the best documented, and most well known evolutionary transitions.

a. Nothing became something — 13.798 ± 0.037 billion years ago
[ The Big Bang ]
b. Non-living substance came to life — 3.6 billion years ago
[ Abiogenesis ]
c. Prokaryotic cells (bacteria) became eukaryotic cells (these contain a nucleus and mitochondria like the cells in our bodies) — 2 billion years ago
d. Consciousness arose — 2nd Nov 1948

I can personally vouch for Point ‘d’ — but all the rest I find fanciful indeed.

Caution Needed

We owe it to ourselves to seriously reconsider the above

When and how did nothing become something?
When and how did non-living matter come to life?
When and how did consciousness arise?

Our own life’s experience comes about because we are alive, we are conscious, and we are able to interact with the world around us. Our very existence poses so many questions — such as.

Why does anything actually exist at all?
Did everything just happen for no reason?
Is God the creator of all things including life?
How did God himself get here? Where did He come from?
Is there a greater purpose to life?

The origin of Evolution: “In the beginning there was nothing — and it exploded”

The origin of Creation: “In the beginning there was God.”

Science

The Articles in this section relate to the earth sciences and give a renewed consideration to aspects of geology and related fields. For science to be true to itself, it must continually ask questions and re-examine issues at an ever increasing depth.

In recent years we have observed the huge strides taken in accumulating knowledge. Therefore, we might well ask, ‘Is now an appropriate time to reassess our general interpretation of the fossil record, etc?’

It is of the utmost importance that we correctly understand the nature of past events on earth, for to imbibe incorrect views about our past will surely lead to gross errors in many areas of our understanding.

Living life to the full

Life is such a beautiful thing …
could it really be possible …
to live forever?

Some have said that death is just a normal part of life. But in reality, death is the very opposite to life. At death, life ceases.

People might mutter that life is short. The majority of us though are privileged to live reasonably long, happy, and fulfilled lives. But regardless of our current status, when we compare it to eternity — eternity always appears an exceptionally/ extremely/ enormously long time.

Life and death issues!

Introduction

Here’s a short story which it seems I’ve known all my life.

A small boy was taking a shortcut through a cemetery when on an ancient tombstone he read these inscribed words.

Where I am now, you soon shall be
It is your fate to follow me.

Before running off, the boy hastily scribbled the following.

To follow you, I’m not content
Until I know just where you went.

‘Immortality and Mortality’ provides insight into vital and intriguing matters of life and death which are relevant to all.
