1 Questions only the Bible can answer

2 The religion of Evolution Attempts to uproot Christianity If evolution true then no God Darwin. – I am determined to escape from design and a personal God at all costs

3 Malcolm Muggeridge “I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it’s been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books in the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.”

4 Which belief fits the evidence best?

5 BEGINNING OF THE UNIVERSE ORIGIN OF LIFE INFORMATION THEORY

6 BEGINNING OF THE UNIVERSE EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAD A BEGINNING HAD A CAUSE THE UNIVERSE HAD A BEGINNING THEREFORE THE UNIVERSE HAD A CAUSE

7 Sir John Maddox former editor of “nature” The idea of a beginning is “thoroughly unacceptable” because it implied an “ultimate origin of our world” and gave creationists “ample justification for their beliefs”

8 IN THE BEGINNING Expanding Universe –therefore, it must have had a beginning. Galactic Motion –Motion needs to be initiated; objects do not move themselves. –this implies a beginning. Proton Decay Protons are decaying & thus are finite thus had a beginning Thermal Decay –If the universe were infinitely old, the temperature throughout the universe would be uniform. –It isn't, therefore it isn't infinitely old. Universe had a beginning.

9 Beginning of universe Only discovered last Century Conclusions from an expanding universe –Arose out of nothing - Ex nihilo –Space and time had a beginning –Universe had a cause Outside of time - transcendent Infinitely powerful - almighty

10 Ex nihilo Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

11 Beginning Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth

12 Transcendent / Expansion Isa 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity... Isa 40:22 It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

13 Almighty / eternal Revelation 4:8 And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”

14

15 ? believes in massive increase in information by random mutations believes non living chemicals organised into living cell EVOLUTION

16 ? George Wald (Nobel Prize winner physiology) “When it comes to the origin of life on this earth, there are only two possibilities: creation or spontaneous generation. There is no third way. Spontaneous generation was disproved 100 years ago, but that leads us only to one other conclusion: that of supernatural creation. We cannot accept that on philosophical grounds; therefore we choose to believe the impossible, that life arose spontaneously by chance.” ORIGINS

17 ORIGIN OF LIFE Physical and natural laws rule out spontaneous generation Life had a beginning Life must have a supernatural source

18 HYDROGEN AMMONIA METHANE WATER NO OXYGEN 85% - TAR 13% - CARBOXYLIC ACID 1.05% - GLYCINE 0.85% - ALANINE

19 HYDROGEN AMMONIA METHANE WATER NO OXYGEN 85% - TAR 13% - CARBOXYLIC ACID 1.05% - GLYCINE 0.85% - ALANINE

20 TO SUMMARISE OXYGEN – either way ! WATER – essential but breaks up amino acids MAJORITY OF TOXIC CHEMICALS TOXIC CHEMICALS BOND MORE READILY LEFT-HANDED AMINO ACIDS –Chance produces equal amounts of both –Proteins are exclusively left-handed

21 Scientist who don’t believe in chance Francis Crick co-discoverer of DNA double helix Sir Fred Hoyle -British physicist and astronomer –“In short there is not a shred of objective evidence to support the hypothesis that life began in an organic soup here on the Earth.” Richard Dawkins

22 Panspermia aliens seeded life on earth Any alien but not God How did life start on the other planet Laws of physics prohibit life getting here

23 John 1: All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

24 INFORMATION THEORY

25 Human genome Francis S. Collins - director of the National Human Genome Research Institute Francis Collins used to be an atheist, but his experiences have lead him to believe in the existence of God.

26 DNA Information in a pinhead volume of DNA. If all written into paperback books, it would make a pile of such books 500 times higher than from here to the moon! The design of such an incredible system of information storage indicates a vastly intelligent Designer

27 INFORMATION ALL KNOWN CODES / LANGUAGE SYSTEMS HAVE AN AUTHOR DNA IS A CODE / LANGUAGE DNA MUST HAVE HAD AN AUTHOR

28 Prof Werner Gitt Director of German Federal Institute of Physics and Technology ‘There is no known natural law through which matter can give rise to information, neither is any physical process or material phenomenon known that can do this.’

29 Mutations Dr Lee Spetner information theory at Johns Hopkins Uni and Weizman Institute –In all the reading I’ve done in the life- sciences literature, I’ve never found a mutation that added information.’ –‘All point mutations that have been studied on the molecular level turn out to reduce the genetic information and not to increase it.’

30 Dawkins interviewed Can you give me an example of a genetic mutation or an evolutionary process which can be seen to increase the information of the genome?

31 John 1:1 – logos In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

32 LOGOS Greek philosopher named Heraclitus first used the term Logos around 600 B.C. to designate the divine reason or plan which coordinates a changing universe. This word was well suited to John’s purpose in John’s Gospel

33 Information is not reducible to matter and even precedes matter Evolution has no explanation for the origin of information

34 Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
