How did we get here? Where did everything come from? These are provocative questions that embody the present controversy broadcasted by the public media in America today. Additionally, this controversy is taught in all American schools except for those that hold firmly to God’s Word written in the first book of Genesis.
The standard mainstream answer to these questions is that natural causes over long periods of time measured in millions and billions of years is what brought us all to be. We are told that it can only happen this way. In this framework, God as our Creator is eliminated because there cannot be outside interference. Science textbooks do not mention a divine, all-powerful, all intelligent, ever-present being as the source of the Cosmos because that kind of thinking is not allowed to fit in the meaning of science. God and the Bible once comfortably fit into our schools, but they have long been forgotten. In fact, our first higher educational institution, Harvard University, was established in 1636 for the purpose of training clergymen who would proselytize the Word of God.
Science has been defined as the study of the physical and natural world with observation and experimentation tools. Although this is a workable definition for many, others believe that the “natural world” means God is out of the equation. This becomes controversial when we are told in the scriptures that God has left his fingerprints everywhere for us to see. We see evidence of God’s power and His awesomeness by using our senses to experience God with the tools of science as we dig deep into the secrets of His creation.
The apostle Paul states that God has manifested himself throughout the whole Cosmos as he says in Romans 1:20, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”
The controversy of origins centers on whether or not God is the author of and continually involved in all the processes of life. If not, does nature receive all the credit? According to God’s Word and what we observe in the universe, nature demands purpose. We should see clear evidence of a design that requires superior outside intelligence so that everyone can witness that there is a Creator. Paul emphasized this universal message that we can experience God so “that we are without excuse.” From generation to generation, all humans who are created in God’s image have the capacity to believe in a Creator. No matter where we are on earth or in some unknown place in the Universe, we can see God. King David announces this by stating, The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice
is not heard (Psalm 19:1-3).
Cosmic Fairy Tales
Almost everyone in the western world as well as communist-run countries is taught that we come from the Big Bang. The brainwashing begins at the elementary level under the guise of science. According to this idea, the origin of everything began 13.7 billion years ago. We are told this is what the theoretical physicists and cosmologists believe: all the matter, energy, time, and space were condensed at a tiny single point at which temperature and density would be infinitely hot and dense. This hypothetical construct, termed singularity, by its very nature is difficult to understand because it has never before been observed. It also appears that those who believe in it desire to give nature all the credit rather than all-powerful God. “It is the biggest mystery we know” is an honest statement made in 1980 by the famous astronomer Carl Sagan in the popular award-winning television series, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. This Big Bang Theory is a one-time event that can never be repeated or observed again. Along with the great mystery of singularity, cosmologists do not know why or how the Big Bang became unstable. For some unknown reason, the point of singularity began to expand or inflate with the release of a tremendous amount of energy. It resembled an explosion that has expanded to where we see the effects today. This assumed inflation process needed an unimaginable amount of energy to move outwardly at an exponential level that is nowhere to be found. Because we cannot observe it and because it is missing, cosmologists call it dark energy. The mechanism of how inflation works is another evolutionary cosmology problem. It appears that the Big Bang Theory of how everything came to be in the Universe has major fundamental issues in its real origins. Presently, the Big Bang Theory is known as the most acceptable theory that addresses how everything began, and is propagated in our schools and public media, even with all its problems. It appears that evolutionists are putting a lot of effort into keeping god out of sight.
There are observations we make in the heavens that provoke many questions. How do you explain the dynamic motion seen everywhere, whether in the movement of invisible particles on the atomic level or the force that moves the galaxies at speeds of a million miles per hour? It had to be a REAL BIG FORCE to get things moving! It had to be a force that came from somewhere in order to produce magnificent order; we observe that something keeps everything together, whether we follow the heavenly bodies or the tiny inert particles of atoms and their components. It made the gravitational forces that control the large heavenly bodies moving in orbital pathways like the planets and galaxies. It also created the electromagnetic and nuclear forces to keep matter together. Is this a result of the Big Bang with no answers of how it began, or is it the work of a divine Creator?
The precision in which forces interact with matter is magnificently illustrated with the physical constants like the universal gravitational constant, G is 6.674×10−11 m3•kg−1•s−2. This G constant can be used anywhere in the Universe. It is believed that 26 fundamental physical constants address the particles and laws that define their interactions, making this a fine-tuned universe.
Did these universal constants come from the Big Bang that had no known cause, or did they come from the divine watchmaker? Sir Isaac Newton and Rene Descartes declare their answer in the statement, “the physical laws he had uncovered revealed the mechanical perfection of the workings of the universe to be akin to a watch, wherein the watchmaker is God.”
The Universe is said to be winding down. At the point of singularity, cosmologists believe it was a highly organized system that, when it inflated, started to become less organized. The second law of thermodynamics, in simple terms, states that orderly systems will move to disorder. This law is exemplified in engines wearing down, objects rusting, mutations in genes, all kinds of diseases including cancer, and even aging. It appears that the formation of galaxies, stars, planets, and in particular the earth that has so many kinds of life forms, including human beings, defies this fundamental law. Perhaps the simple way to describe this blatant violation of the second law of thermodynamics is best expressed by asking this real question, “How does an explosion create order?”
Lucky to be Here!
American textbooks and public media not only give nature credit for creating the physical universe described by the big bang, but they also believe it provided the conditions to form living organisms. They think that a suitable environment could have produced conditions to create life on the planet earth and perhaps in other areas of the Universe. The idea that inert molecules could make life prevail in evolutionary biology is called abiogenesis. Many experiments have been done in the laboratory in recent decades but have failed miserably. As time moves on in the biomolecular world, research reveals these molecules’ complexity and how they interact in living systems. The evolutionary abiogenesis challenge has grown tremendously when we understand that these biomolecules are diverse with their three-dimensional structures. They also have a method in which to store energy with an incredible degree of specificity. Some biomolecules contain tremendous amounts of information like the code of life, as demonstrated in DNA. These biological molecules tend to be very large, containing hundreds, thousands, and in some cases, millions of units. They have the characteristic of being directional; just like amino acids have to be left-handed for living systems, right-handed does not work. What is the mechanism for biomolecular evolution? The answer from evolutionists is not very scientific, but it says that life with all diversity - including you and I - came into existence without a purpose or cause that will never be reproduced again. The mechanism is just like winning the lottery over and over again. Richard Dawkins, one of the most prominent biological evolutionists and devout atheists, began his illustrious career with his publication of the “Selfish Gene.” He introduced the gene-centered concept of how evolution keeps moving forward. Dawkins holds the reins of Darwinism tight and proposed that DNA and RNA molecules of life that compose genes originated as an accident, as he states at the beginning of his publication:
In his engaging prose, Dawkins’ atheistic arrogance has made him a best-selling author. He suggests that this replicator molecule is “not necessarily the biggest or the most complex” but he imagined that this one could be replicated over deep time. He went on and admitted that although this was highly improbable, possibly over hundreds of millions of years ago, it could happen as the chances of winning the lottery get better if you lived all those years. Many today follow Dawkins’ atheistic ideology and are drawn to this irrational logic that nature’s randomness and chance is the author of a living organism’s impeccable order of complexity. They are blinded in their stubborn foolishness that would avoid the most obvious conclusion, the presence of a divine Creator. We are lucky to be here.
For although they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give Him thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things (Romans 1:21-23).
Paul continues in Romans 1 describing how men and women will fall into debauchery and sin with a debased mind blinded to morality and His righteousness. He emphasized this so that we can see the need for the Good News of a messiah, Jesus Christ, who came to save mankind. It is a somber reminder of how potentially evil man can become without our Lord’s everlasting mercy and grace portrayed throughout the Bible. Paul established the importance of this basic idea that when we
do not recognize God by honoring and giving Him thanks, man has the power to eradicate themselves.
If one destroys the integrity of God’s Word from the very beginning as stated in the first verse of Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,” then how does one trust the rest of the Bible? As Christ said to the unbelieving Pharisees:
“He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead’”(Luke 16:31).
It was Moses whom God used, directed by the Holy Spirit, to write the first five books of the Bible. There is a unifying message of a messiah, Savior, and eternal King throughout the Old and New Testaments that will also be ignored with evolution. This will bring God’s wrath on this earth as we are already witnessing as it is stated, “What will righteous do when the foundations are destroyed?” (Psalm 11:3)
The opportunity to witness God’s works and give Him His due honor and thanks is gone today in our public educational systems and the general news media. Many churches and their leaders have not challenged the Big Bang’s teaching that does not give God the honor and thanks He deserves; instead, secular cosmologists have attempted to steal it. Similarly, as we look at life with all its stunning diversity and astonishing complexity that can only come from the source of all life, Jesus Christ, we see that it has been hijacked by Biological Evolution. We have been brainwashed from one generation to the next, beginning with popular Darwinian Evolution that stuck out its ugly head in 1859 with the publication of Darwin’s Origin of Species. It has had such a dramatic influence on the world that many are confused about their true origins. Both King and Queen stand on the throne of naturalism: the Big Bang Cosmology and Biological Evolution, respectively. They have done so much damage to our world by taking away our identity as a reflection of God created in His image. The natural throne of evolution is the world’s idol to establish doubt in God and His Word. It is no wonder we see so much irrationality and chaos here in America and throughout much of the world.
We Cannot Let This Happen
Science and the study of God’s creation, reveals God himself. The invisible becomes visible, and the one that created the light gave His Word of salvation. As King David praises His Creator and Savior, he says, “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised and His greatness is unsearchable” (Psalm 145:3). We know that the more we search Him out, the more He reveals himself to us. Some refuse to see it and want to cancel God out of our culture, but they cannot do this because His nature and His word are eternal and will always be with us. We have to stand up for Christ’s righteousness and dismantle the irrational idea of evolution on both the cosmic and biological levels.
