Creation and Evolution

This has been the center of controversy for many years. Which is true: Creation or Evolution. Why is there such a controversy over Creation and Evolution? We all have the same physical evidence in front of us: the same earth, the same fossil layers, the same animals and plants, the same stars, etc.

Why Is There Controversy Between Creation and Evolution?

The controversy is there because we interpret the facts differently. We do this because we start with different presuppositions. Presuppositions are things that are assumed to be true, without being able to prove them. Then we use these presuppositions as the basis for other conclusions. Both creationists and evolutionists start with presuppositions. No matter how hard we try, this is how we always start investigations.

Our Presuppositions Are Different

What are these presuppositions? Creationists began with the existence of God. Evolutionists do not believe in a God. I know, there are those who believe in God and at the same time, believe in evolution. The problem is that you cannot believe in evolution (actually Darwinism) and the same time believe that the Bible was given to us by God. (Unless I specify otherwise, when I use the word “evolution” I actually mean “Darwinism”) The Bible definitely contradicts what evolution teaches.

Evolution teaches that all matter evolved from a one celled animal that somehow miraculously came to life. Thus, they teach that humans are really no different than animals because we simply evolved from them.

The Bible teaches that God created plants, he separately created animals, and most importantly He created the human race as a separate creation. In fact the Bible states that the human race was created with an additional property that none of the animals have. God gave the human race a spirit that he breathed into Adam from Himself.

Evolution Is Actually Darwinism

Yes, there is proof that there have been some types of evolution that has happened. For instance, scientists have discovered that our modern horse actually started out as a much smaller animal. We have created “evolution” ourselves. Look at how we have created new species of dogs or cats or even horses. This is why I teach that we should use the word “Darwinism” because it is actually Darwinism that teaches what evolutionists believe.

Evolution (Darwinism) Is Not Based On Fact

But no one has ever proven that a horse and a dog have the same ancestor. Nor have they shown that all plants have evolved from a single type of plant. What they have done is to create a theory about how one species evolved from another and presented it to us as fact. They forget to mention that there is no real evidence to back up that “fact.”

When I think of the difference between creation and evolution, I think that it takes much more faith to believe in evolution. Evolution states that life just sprang up from nothing. That somewhere, out of nowhere, life began. Creation says that life was given to us by God.

Do You Believe In a Spirit World?

But, people say that God does not exist, at least a God that is a person that can and does interact with the human race. Yet, these same people believe in ghosts and spirits that are somehow quite evil. They believe that they exist in a plane or dimension that is different than the one we live in.

But what is this other dimension that these spirits live in? Why is it possible for spirits to live in another dimension but it is impossible for a personal God to live in that same dimension? I have yet to find anyone that has a reasonable explanation for this discrepancy.

Why don’t non-Christians accept the idea of a personal God? I have found that most non-Christians simply want to believe that they are the highest form of being. That there is no person or thing that is greater or more powerful than we are.

Biblical Explanation

Actually, the Bible explains to us why people do not believe in a personal God. The Living Bible makes it very clear in I Corinthians 2:14.

“But the man who isn’t a Christian can’t understand and can’t accept these thoughts from God, which the Holy Spirit teaches us. They sound foolish to him because only those who have the Holy Spirit within them can understand what the Holy Spirit means. Others just can’t take it in.”

If you want to understand what is going on in the spirit world, you must first accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Go here and find out how.
