My Answer to an Evolutionary Sceptic
The following was written in answer to a question posted on Does the Fossil Record Prove Evolution.
How can people even trick themselves into believing this nonsensical madness? Generations of the future will be taught evolution and know that anyone who claims that the earth was made in 24 hours and is just 6000 years old is utterly misguided. Soon, everyone will realize the truth and leave behind this garbage.
Hey Peregrine, instead of just giving your rant, why not give us some sound scientific evidence for evolution. Just give us what most convinces you that the fable of evolution is true. Sadly, most today will not do their own research and therefore is fulfilled in them that which was spoke of, "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2 Timothy 4:3-4) And in so doing are just following "profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called" (1 Timothy 6:20).
God saw and foretold us how many would be deceived by the lie of evolution in the last days.
"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished" (2 Peter 2:3-6)
The reason these scoffers will not believe is that they love darkness rather than Light (John 3:18-21). They are too committed to their sin. Hey, and do not get me wrong, I was ten times the sinner that you were and loved my sin, but I got saved and those things I used to love, my sin, my passion for them has diminished greatly to the point that I now hate them. But I digress.
Now, the great evolutionary lie is summed up here, "all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation". I am not sure what you know about the evolution of evolution, but it was founded on the doctrine of Uniformity. The doctrine of Uniformitarianism, was first established by James Hutton (1726-1797). Encyclopedia Britannica says that he was a "Scottish geologist, chemist, naturalist, and originator of one of the fundamental principles of geology -- uniformitarianism, which explains the features of the Earth's crust by means of natural processes over geologic time."
Encyclopedia Britannica goes on to say, "the principle of uniformity postulates that phenomena displayed in the rocks may be entirely accounted for by geologic PROCESSES WHICH CONTINUE TO OPERATE at the present day -- in other words, the present is the key to the past."
In time, some folks took this doctrine and applied it to plant and animal life, and thus, evolution was formed and defined. They invented the "Geological Column" and applied the geological ages to the fossils contained in the rock layers, postulating that creatures from the very beginning of creation have continued to die and slowly, they got buried in these rock layers over millions of years.
They claimed, this is the way it has always been from the beginning of the creation. But God decreed, "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished" (2 Peter 2:5-6).
They fabricated this lie to contradict the true history of the world, that all things did NOT CONTINUE as they were from the beginning of the creation, rather, in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, and in time, had to intervene in the affairs of mankind, because they got exceedingly violent and wicked and corrupt (Genesis 6:11-13). God therefore judged the world with a mountain covering Flood, whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water perished.
The sediments that precipitated out of the Flood waters created the Geological Column, with all its fossils, containing Billions of dead things laid down in rock layers all over the earth. The miles of Flood strata found all over the world containing billions of dead things did not happen over millions or billions of years, it happened very rapidly, as a judgment on an exceedingly wicked world that refused to repent.
This answers perfectly as to how all these creatures are so perfectly preserved in all the flood strata around the world. It is the only way a fossil can be formed, burying them rapidly to preserve them from scavengers, and oxygen which promotes rapid decay of dead flesh.
Understand this, the Lord Jesus Christ said, "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." (Matthew 24:37) Jesus said, "I will come again" (John 14:3), and God "hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead" (Acts 17:31).
You can be sure of this, that "Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). This is the most indisputable fact of Christianity, for without the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, there would be no Christianity.
You can sit on your hands and mock and scoff and scorn, living your life without purpose or hope, or you can repent and believe the gospel and be saved from your sins, and have a blessed hope of life everlasting as we await with great anticipation for the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13).
But as in the days of Noah, unless you repent, you shall all likewise perish. Do not allow your conscience to become seared, for as time progress unto that day, it will be harder and harder to be saved, for the course of history is as such that "evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived" (2 Timothy 3:13). So make today the day that you will say that wonderful YES to Jesus Christ and receive Him as your very own personal Savior and enter into that Great Joy in knowing Him with all the saints.
This article is very helpful, thanks for writing this to help us answer many out there who think like this in these end times.
Hi Kathy, It is amazing what real evidence is available to us today, so much so, that in the "last days", those who would refute super natural creation by the Almighty God are said to be "willingly ignorant". Many just fail to think for themselves, due to laziness, or they just do not care. But for those who are seeking out the matter, their minds must quickly come to wonder, how did all the creatures get into the rocks?
I was at the famous Tyrell Museum in Alberta Canada, and they had the explanation as to how fossils were formed as follows. They had on the wall some nice illustrations of the steps to producing a fossil fish and on one of the captions in the series it said, the fish "when they died, sank to the bottom where they were buried in the mud." But the inquiring mind must ask, do we ever see this happening in nature? I have done lots of fishing and snorkeling, and when a fish dies, IT FLOATS, and quickly gets scavenged by a seagull or pelican, and I have never seen a dead fish on the bottom of the sea floor waiting to get covered in mud. If they ever did make it to the bottom, they would quickly get scavenged, rot, decay, and turn to dust.
Fossils can only be formed when living creatures are buried rapidly by sediments that in time solidify forming the rock strata that we see around the globe containing billions of beautifully formed fossils. Evolutionists would have us believe that these layers in times past were laid down very slowly and "uniformly" over millions of years, but it just ain't so! That cannot answer to the miles of water laid sedimentary strata all over the earth.
Here are two amazing videos that show how strata can be laid down in minutes when there is a catastrophe like a Flood, and or with, volcanic activity, to which the world wide mountain cover Flood in the days of Noah can answer to, when the "fountains of the great deep broke up" (Genesis 7:11). These subterranean aquifers were broken up, so much so that the whole earth is now like a big cracked egg, where magma, lava, and volcanoes are still spewing out their aerosols, and with 50,000 dormant sea mounts, we know that this sort of volcanic activity was 10,000 times more in the past.
