Did God use evolution to create? - Creation Magazine Live

Many Christians believe that God may have used evolutionary processes to create. This episode summarizes some of the serious problems that arise in trying to fit evolution with Genesis that even atheists can see. Although evolution does fit with many religions (atheism, for example) it cannot be made to fit with Christianity.

Hosts Richard Fangrad and Calvin Smith of CMI-Canada discuss and summarize the faith-building information found in Creation magazineCreation magazine has been changing lives and building the faith of Christians in more than 140 countries for more than 30 years. Each issue contains dozens of articles (many by scientists) that refute evolution and support the Bible's account of creation.

How Did Multi-cellular Life Originate? 15 Questions for Evolutionists - # 7

How did multi-cellular life originate? How did cells adapted to individual survival 'learn' to cooperate and specialize (including undergoing programmed cell death) to create complex plants and animals? See: Evolution of multicellularity: what is required?

Question 7 in CMI's '15 Questions for Evolutionists' flyer reveals yet another problem area for the story of evolution: How did cells adapted to individual survival 'learn' to cooperate and specialize (including undergoing programmed cell death) to create complex plants and animals? Richard Fangrad and Calvin Smith summarize some of the data. See the links below for details.

Scientific Case for the Origin of Life - Mike Riddle

Mike puts the evolution theory to shame, clearly showing the "impossibility of the odds." Visit Mike's Equipping and Training Christians Ministry - 

  • There are over 2,000 types of amino acids and only 20 are used in life. Every experiment we have ever done has always ended up with an equal number of left handed and right handed amino acids. A mixture of left handed and right handed amino acids is a poison to life. Each body is full of only left handed amino acids. The tendency is always to bond the two and continue away from life; not toward life. Evolution has ruled out the truth of a Creator God, so evolutionists will accept anything in the place of the truth of God. In essence, evolutionists are saying that 3 plus 1 equals 7 because the real answer, in this case 4, is "too religious for them." 
  •  One cell in our body is more complex than any computer we have ever built. Is it logical to conclude that a cell could evolve from natural processes? "Give it enough time and it will happen" is not a scientific statement. It is a faith-based statement. It is saying that they don't know what happened, but if we give it enough time, then something will happen. Scientists affirm that the law of probability states if the chances of something happening is over 10 to the 50th power, then it will "never" happen. The chances are 10 to the 191st power that a single protein can occur by random chance. The chances of a single cell forming by random chance is 10 to the 40,000th power! To say that life could evolve from nothing defies science and logic. 
  •  A person can believe in evolution, but not because of the science. A person believes in evolution because of their belief system. 
  •  Anything that violates the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics could never happen. It states, "Energy goes from a usable to less usable state over time in an isolated system." An open system is any system where you can add and remove energy. The Earth is an open system and so is nearly everything else we know. An isolated system is one where no matter or energy can get in or out. The universe is an isolated system. 
Four Required Conditions for Evolution 
  1. An open system (earth) 
  2. Available energy source (sun) 
  3. A way to capture and store raw energy 
  4. Energy conversion mechanism 
  •  We are all decaying. We began this decay at conception. 
  •  Where did the immense amount of DNA come from? The only tenable answer is in Genesis 1. 

Things Detrimental to the Origin of Life
 1) Oxygen in the atmosphere
 2) Second Law of Thermodynamics (time)
 3) Water (hydrolysis)

If I tell you only part of the evidence and you believe it, you have not been taught, you have been indoctrinated. If I tell you all the evidence and you make a decision, then you have been taught.

Congress has said that we can teach both sides (e.g. evolutionism and creation). However, other agencies have tried to take away this right and scare creationists into being silent.

No scientist on this planet can tell you how life originated. Why should we accept evolution when you cannot produce the evidence? When evolutionists tell us about their faith, creationists should tell them about our faith. Evolution has no foundation for the origin of information.

Living things look like they were designed, so how do evolutionists know that they were not designed? 15 Questions for Evolutionists #6

Unanswerable questions about the Darwinian theory of evolution that illustrate the sheer scientific fallacy of ‘evolution is fact’.

Living things look like they were designed, so how do evolutionists know that they were not designed? Richard Dawkins wrote, “biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.”4 Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the double helix structure of DNA, wrote, “Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved.”5 The problem for evolutionists is that living things show too much design. Who objects when an archaeologist says that pottery points to human design? Yet if someone attributes the design in living things to a designer, that is not acceptable. Why should science be restricted to naturalistic causes rather than logical causes? See:Is the design explanation legitimate?

4. Dawkins, R., The Blind Watchmaker, W.W. Norton & Company, New York, p. 1, 1986. 

5. Crick, F.,
 What mad pursuit: a Personal View of Scientific Discovery, Sloan Foundation Science, London, 1988, p. 138. 

15 Questions for Evolutionists -- Question 6
Question 6 in CMI's '15 Questions for Evolutionists' flyer focuses on the fact that one of the greatest challenges for evolutionists is that living things show too much design! If (as Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the double helix structure of DNA, wrote) "Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved" how do evolutionists know living things weren't designed?
