1 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8 CREATION / EVOLUTION JEFF BUSH, 2014

2 Twenty-somethings once faithfully attended church. What made them stop? While most said they still believe that the Bible is God's Word, they also said that the idea that the earth is millions of years old was one thing that caused them to doubt the Bible. Ken HamKen Ham, President Answers in Genesis

4 1.Only the Young Earth Creation (YEC) Model properly points to Christ. 2.YEC is more logically solid than all other origins models, particularly Evolution. 3.Scientist are biased, opponents are hostile, the public is clueless.

5 WHY TALK ABOUT IT? TO POINT TO CHRIST 1 Cor 15:21-22 : For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. Rom 5:12 : Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned Without Adam’s sin, we have no need for Christ sacrifice.

6 What about: Old-Earth Creationism, Theistic Evolution, Day-Age theory, Gap-Theory, Etc… These do not sufficiently point to Christ Require death and disease prior to the fall Lessen the significance of the fall, and therefore the significance of Christ’s sacrifice Require a ‘bending’ of scripture (“day”, the Flood) New YEC evidence makes these unnecessary “Old-Earth Creationism on Trial” by Tim Chaffey and Jason Lisle, “Refuting Compromise “by Jonathan Sarfati

7 THE YOUNG EARTH CREATION MODEL Most strict adherence of scripture Scientific supported When incorporated with ‘Appearance of Age’, becomes the most logically complete of all origins models MUCH fewer challenges (as we will see)

8 TWO PARTS TO THE YOUNG EARTH MODEL Unscientific part (Faith): Humans have been given the CAPACITY to contemplate God, but NOT the CAPABILITY to prove His existence. The gap between them: Faith. The “Unscientific” portion of YEC is unscientific by design Scientific part: The scripture must be supported by science “God did it” is ONLY used when there is scriptural support for it. Everything in the Creation model can be shown in either scripture or science (sometimes both).

9 CHALLENGES TO EVOLUTION New challenges are continually coming out, primarily in: Astronomy & Cosmology Genetics & Microbiology Geology & Paleontology Evolution is a theory in crisis, and it shows

10 BIAS & HOSTILITY “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.” - John 3:19-20

11 BIAS, HOSTILITY Atheist call Evolution “A Fact” – because they HAVE TO Scientific community is extremely biased, even hostile to Creationism They are Angry and Scared. Evolutionists are becoming threatened by Creationism, and it shows

12 “COMMITMENT TO MATERIALISM” ‘Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.’ [Emphasis mine] - Geneticist Professor Richard Lewontin

13 G: "Do you believe that the information evolved?" J: "George, nobody I know in my profession believes it evolved. …." G: "Have you ever stated that in a public lecture, or in any public writings?" J: "No. I just say it evolved. To be a molecular biologist requires one to hold on to two insanities at all times. One, it would be insane to believe in evolution when you can see the truth for yourself. Two, it would be insane to say you don't believe in evolution. All government work, …would stop. I'd be out of a job…" [Emphasis mine] Molecular biologist being interviewed by George Caylor of The Ledger :

14 “We need scientifically literate taxpayers and voters for the future…” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHbYJfwFgOU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_R5tv9LLGo “I n that video, I was talking about the use of tax payer dollars for science education. So, this is a very important thing if we want to a have jobs. ”

15 “these people are walking into our homes and steeling our liberty” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao4xAKwdc4o hasn’t only [upset us], it’s [upset] a lot of other people. And that’s the first step in a counter-attack. Getting people angry” Penn & Teller – “This whole fuss in the school system has rallied the good guys together a bit. Because it
