Why I believe in Creation Posted: December 17, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern
I was stunned the other day when I asked evolution-believing listeners to my nationally syndicated radio show to call in and tell me why they believed.
"Just give me one reason why you accept the theory," I said. "Just give me the strongest argument. You don't have to give me mountains of evidence. Just tell me why I should accept it."
Not one evolutionist called in.
Meanwhile, the phone banks lit up with dozens of evolution skeptics.
Go figure. For more than 40 years, evolution has been taught as fact in government schools to generations of children, yet there is still widespread skepticism, if not cynicism, about the theory across the country.
But, because of political correctness and the fear of ostracism, most people are afraid to admit what they believe about our origins. That's why I wrote my last column "I believe in Creation."
The reaction to it has been unprecedented. While I expected mostly negative fallout, most letters have been quite positive.
So, I decided to take this issue a step further. Since the evolutionists don't want to tell me why they believe in their theory, I figured I would explain why I believe in mine.
The primary reason I believe, of course, is because the Bible tells me so. That's good enough for me, because I haven't found the Bible to be wrong about anything else.
But what about the worldly evidence?
The evolutionists insist the dinosaurs lived millions and millions of years ago and became extinct long before man walked the planet.
I don't believe that for a minute. I don't believe there is a shred of scientific evidence to suggest it. I am 100 percent certain man and dinosaurs walked the earth at the same time. In fact, I'm not at all sure dinosaurs are even extinct!
Think of all the world's legends about dragons. Look at those images. What were those folks seeing? They were clearly seeing dinosaurs. You can see them etched in cave drawings. You can see them in ancient literature. You can see them described in the Bible. You can see them in virtually every culture in every corner of the world.
Did the human race have a collective common nightmare? Or did these people actually see dragons? I believe they saw dragons what we now call dinosaurs.
Furthermore, many of the dinosaur fossils discovered in various parts of the world were found right along human footprints and remains. How did that happen?
And what about the not-so-unusual sightings of contemporary sea monsters? Some of them have actually been captured.
There are also countless contemporary sightings of what appear to be pterodactyls in Asia and Africa.
You know what I think? I think we've been sold a bill of goods about the dinosaurs. I don't believe they died off millions and millions of years ago. In fact, I'm not at all convinced they've died off completely.
Evolutionists have put the cart before the horse. They start out with a theory, then ignore all the facts that contradict the theory. Any observation that might call into question their assumptions is discounted, ridiculed and covered up. That's not science.
How could all the thousands of historical records of dragons and behemoths throughout mankind's time on earth be ignored? Let's admit it. At least some of these observations and records indicate dinosaurs were walking the earth fairly recently if not still walking it today.
If I'm right about that which I am then the whole evolutionary house of cards comes tumbling down.
This is the evidence about which the evolutionists dare not speak.
Can you see no scientific evidence that supports evolution?
What is really sad is that you believe that evolution is anti-God.
I wouldnt begrudge Farah the bittersweet vindication of one bagging him.
We were all created. Many devolve.
Was already on it, lol! Made my day!
That sure explains why the first section of the last chapter of Darwin's Origins of the Species is titled Recapitulation of the Difficulties on the Theory of Natural Selection.
Time to let go of this canard. That dog won't hunt.
You really see none? I mean, you don't think that various forms of geology, carbon dating, etc. at least hint at the possibility that the world is older than the new earth creationists preach?
I believe the evidence, and because I’m a Christian, I believe Scripture, which in many many many ways contradicts the theory of evolution. Someone who believes in Jesus can’t believe in evolution — what He believed and spoke directly contradicts the theory.
Coming out of the woodwork ping.
That would be true. There should be slightly more water on the earth today as there was a thousand or a million years ago.
Some however, did not grasp the concept of matter not being able to be destroyed when it was taught on the first day of 9th grade science class.
There have been several recent sightings of a female Thunderthighosaurus. It was last seen at a presidential candidate debate.
“... new earth creationists.”
How many creation theories exist? Your citing only the “new earth” theory shows that you don’t understand alternate theories to the theory that God is irrelevant and that “all this” developed slowly through cycles of death and life by a series of random events.
It’s really a fascinating set of theories, this one based on Scripture and supported by the evidence. I challenge you to look into it.
Or atom bombs.
I want you to back that claim up. Nothing Jesus said not one thing was anti-evolution nor did anything he said contradict evolutionary science. In fact If anything Jesus told his followers to view the Old testament for what it was a story and that he was here on Earth to replace those stories with his word and his law.
So lets get cracking and post what Jesus had to say on this subject. Of course you will come up lacking because you want to speak for Jesus rather than listen to what he said.
I have, and I disagree with your statement "supported by the evidence".
Did you ever wonder how the scientific method, the success of which has put rovers on Mars and made it possible through MRI to look inside the body without cutting it, is nonetheless seen as completely inadequate when it comes to investigating anything that bumps up against religious beliefs?
Depends what Mobius was doing with that strip. Ewww!
Well, there is that thing He said about the “jot and tittle”.
