The Ludicrousness of Evolution


I entered the title of this blog post into a google search and came up with the following article.  It is a bit lengthy, but the author makes the best point.

" To believe in Evolution... that would take more faith than believing in God!"

 If you have a few moments in your day... it's worth the read.

I got the inspiration to share this when watching a show about anteaters on  Mutant Planet (Discovery Channel).  I am amazed at the arrogance of the host.  He boasts of the genius of evolution, when the whole show is an obvious testimony to the awesomeness of God's Creation.

Do Believers in Evolution Have More Faith Than Believers in God?


By: Hannah Henderson


It must be understood that belief that Earth is billions of years old is crucial to the survival of evolution theory. The tactic is to teach that evolution always takes millions or even billions of years to happen so no one will ever be able to observe it. This sounds like a plan for the perfect lie.

Evolutionists claim that man can know the Earth is billions of years old because light from stars billions of light years away can be seen from Earth. Therefore, Earth must be at least as old as the time it took star light to reach it. But, the methods to determine cosmic distances used by scientists and evolutionists must be looked at to judge their validity and effectiveness. One such technique is known as the parallax method whose basic concept is simple to understand. Some stars are close to Earth, others are very far away. It's believed that stars very close to Earth such as the sun, can be accurately measured. In the parallax method, a scientist who wants to find how far away a very distant star is from Earth would start by choosing a close star such as the sun. He would then choose the star far away, whose distance he's trying to find. Earth revolves around the sun causing things in the sky to look different at various times of the day and year. Scientists look for how the position of the close star changes in relation to the distant star while Earth is rotating. If the near star's position doesn't change much, the distant star is said to be very far. If the near star's position changes a lot, the distant star is not said to be very far.

However, this "scientific" method of measuring stellar distances is so terribly flawed that someone once said it would require more faith to believe in it than to believe the miracles of the Bible. Evolutionists believe in the Big Bang theory, which states that all heavenly bodies are a spin off from a massive explosion and that the universe is constantly expanding at unimaginable speeds. This means that Earth and the nearby and distant stars chosen for study, are all moving at rapid speeds. How can stars that won't keep still be accurately measured? What is more is that the parallax method is performed over a period of six months before calculating a distance. That means that six months of rapid expansion takes place during measurement. The supporters and inventors of such method didn't take into consideration this point before declaring that the Earth is billions of years old. In fact, Earth's age has been calculated over and over again, and changed several times.

Also, the so-called mathematical formula used to calculate these stellar distances based on the parallax method does not allow for differences in results that the bending of light would make. It is inconceivable to think, with the gravitational belts in space, that light would not bend at any point during the measurement over six months in a universe that evolutionists claim is expanding. Such failure to consider the bending of light into the calculation could cause a star approximately 10,000 light years away to appear more than 200,000 light years away. Imagine the chaos to be expected when using this method to measure the distance of stars that are supposedly billions of light years away?

There is also a time factor that simply will not allow an intelligent mind to accept stellar distances determined by such haphazard methods. Hollywood's movies about time travelers becoming lost in the past or in the future, do have an element of truth. It is the technology of today's jets that have given man a glimpse into real-life time travel. If a person flies non-stop by jet just across the United States from California to New York, he will cross several time zones. In essence, he becomes a time traveler. A jet can make such a journey in four hours. If his watch says 3:00 p.m. when he leaves California, it will say 7:00 p.m. when he arrives in New York. Nevertheless, the true time in New York will be 10:00 p.m. Although his actual travel time is only four hours, due to the passage through time zones, it will appear as though he made a journey of seven hours. Considering this powerful impact that the passage through time zones has within a small part of the Earth, imagine the huge distortions of the telling of time when speaking of the passage through the time zones of outer space! This telling of "time", along with the inaccurate parallax method is used to determine as scientific fact that there are stars that are billions of light years away from Earth. The new Cepheid method of determining stellar distances is said to be improved and absolutely accurate. How can this be when it still relies upon the aforementioned parallax method and the telling of time? This hardly seems a viable argument in favor of evolution's big bang, old Earth theory. The physical and scientific evidence that technology allows man to gather is overwhelming in support of an earth whose age is roughly 10,000 years. It's interesting to note that an approximate age of 10,000 years for Earth perfectly corresponds to the biblical account of the Creation.

God gave man the freedom to choose to believe His word or to reject it. However, most people like to think of themselves as intelligent beings. A man may say that he chooses not to serve God simply because that is not his desire, or because he dislikes God's law. However, he does not make himself appear foolish because of the exercise of his free will. But, when he says that he chooses not to serve God because he would rather place belief and reliance on man's twisted theory of evolution, his intelligence should be questioned.
Science is not in opposition to the Bible. Science only verifies what the Bible has already said. It should always be remembered that Evolution is not science. It will twist and break even long time established laws of real science in a desperate attempt to make a falsehood appear as reality. In essence, it truly does require a greater faith to believe in the ludicrousness of evolution theory than it does to believe in Jesus.
