What the Evolutionist Believes...
What does Scripture Say? Genesis 2:2-3 – By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
The Word Day – Genesis 1-2 The Hebrew word for day (Genesis 1) yom -- a period of time, a specific point in time, a year, the time of day when it is light out and it can also refer to 24 hour period of time. The Holy Spirit, writing through Moses, didnt allow for any other interpretation than 24-hour days because He used a number, and the phrase evening and morning for each of the six days of creation (and there was evening and morning the first day, etc.). All throughout the Bible, when yom is used with a number or the words evening or morning, it is referring to a 24-hour day. SOURCE:
What does Scripture Say? Matthew 19:3-6 – (JESUS supports Creation!) Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?" "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female, and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."
What does Scripture Say? Mark 10:6 – (JESUS supports Creation!) -- But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 1 Corinthians 15:45 -- (PAUL believed in an actual Adam) -- So it is written: "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
What does Scripture Say? The Bottom Line: Romans 1:20 – For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualitieshis eternal power and divine naturehave been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Creation points to a Designer Psalm 14:1a -- The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."
Adams age on his wedding day (Wasnt Adam and the rest of it more than just days old???) Adam looked like an adult when he married Eve (Genesis 2:25), but in fact, he was not even a day old when Eve was created since both Adam and Eve were created on Day 6 of Creation (Genesis 1:27-31). So Adam may have appeared to be 20 or 30 years old, but wasnt even a full day old! Couldnt God do this? Of course He can! Hes God!
Roadkill Fossils Im not an expert, but I have some common sense. If your Hummer hit a dinosaur and killed it (and probably your Hummer, too), then if you just left the dinosaur in the street, it would rot and decay like the opossums we see around here. To preserve the dinosaur, it would need a rapid burial as well as other factors that would be present in a global flood. Have you heard of a guy named Noah?
The Fibonacci Sequence: Used by an Intelligent Designer A mathematical sequence that appears in the musical octave, Pascals Triangle, among other places. Relates to the Golden Rectangle (& Golden Ratio), which contains a spiral that is seen in the cochlea of the human ear, the chambered nautilus, the spiral galaxy, and in hurricane storm clouds. Further, the proportions of the Golden Rectangle have been used in art and architecture for ideal proportions. Related to Pentagram/gon of 5-petaled flowers, starfish, and sand dollars. Related to the petal arrangement of flowers; is found in the spiral arrangements of petals, pine cones, and pineapple; in the leaf positioning of the Phyllotaxis, in the mathematics of the quantum matrix, of rabbit populations, and of the genealogy of male bees.

STOMPSTOMP! STOMP on the lies of evolution, but do so with a willingness to have an open and respectful discussion, remembering to love the person in spite of what he or she believes and influence him or her for Jesus Christ not just in the truth of what you say, but how you engage in the discussion.
