Creation: Facts that Support the Biblical Account I
A Sunday guest post by my brilliant husband, Gregg.
Every Sunday, my clever husband offers me a “day of rest” by taking over the homemaker duties here. His primary topic, the Biblical Truth of Creation vs. Darwinism, is a subject that has broad reaching scientific, social, and metaphysical implications and is gaining more and more attention in our modern culture. For believers and non-believers alike, the primary purpose is to present scientific, historical, logical, and/or sociological data in an empirical and defensible fashion, as much as possible written in layman’s terms, and in a format suitable for supplementing any homeschool curriculum whether you choose to believe the Biblical account — or secular guesses — about the origins of human life on earth.
Facts that Support the Biblical Account of Creation
The following are observed facts about nature and the universe that support the Biblical account of Creation. Note that these facts are held up by operational and empirical science.
Intelligently designed— There is order where there should only be disorder and there is no waste where most all of the universe should be random waste. There is balance in every system from the weak and strong atomic forces to the gravity and inexplicable forces that bind galaxies together. All of it bears the tool marks of a Creator. Everything in creation—from the largest galaxy to the smallest atom—reveals the fact that it was planned, designed, and constructed by an Intelligent Being of the highest intellect and capabilities.
Irreducible complexity—The various components of every living creature in the world are so complicated and interrelated, that it could not function without every last one of them in place. There is simply no way that some of the parts could have been “evolved” at need and added later. Biochemists and microbiologists know this and have no sound, valid, cogent explanation for it that leaves out living things having been created
Instantaneous complexity—Each entire living creature had to be totally assembled instantly, in order for it to begin living. If this was not done, parts would decay before other parts were made. All aspects had to be there together, all at once or assembled using the most complex blue-print ever imagined with parts and assemblies being introduced at perfect intervals and flawlessly, without error, and in order or else life could not exist. Life does exist, therefore, by simple logic, life was Created.
Mathematically impossible—Mathematicians have repeatedly estimated that the likelihood of DNA, enzymes, amino acids, and proteins being randomly assembled by the chance methods offered by Darwinian guesses is impossible by many orders of magnitude.
What is Darwinism, really? At its root, it is a truth claim about human origins is it not?
But what is that truth claim after some scrutiny? What is it really? After all the condescending sound and fury, at it’s core it is nothing more than a collection of unsubstantiated guesses about unobserved events in the past.
What does a collection of unsubstantiated guesses about unobserved events in the past have to do with biology? Biology, after all, is the study of life in the present, is it not? It would seem logical, then, that historians and philosophers should be having this debate over origins instead of people who make their living studying life science in the present.
That Biologists continue to argue this point demonstrates yet again that this is a philosophical argument, not a scientific argument. This is a debate between two religious world views.
The greatest logical fact in existence that dispels the myth of Darwinism is the complete inability of Darwinists to provide even one solid scientific evidence in support of the entire silly notion. This is a very revealing fact. A “scientific theory” is not scientific at all when it lacks the underlying scientific evidence proving it worthwhile.
Darwinism includes countless unfounded and unscientific pronouncements framed as truth claims, endless hypotheses, outright guesses, and so-called theories — all of it built on even more guesses and theories. None of this can dispel the fact that the basic notion upon which they are all piled on top of is totally and utterly lacking in empirical and operational scientific evidence.
Even discounting the thousands of outright frauds perpetrated in the name of Darwin in the last 150 years or so, the truth is that no evidence that is ever presented as “proof” of Darwinism ever stands up to simple logic, is almost never observed or even observable, and never enters into the arena of empirical and operational science. Think about that for a moment.
While believers in the Biblical account of Creation are able to almost endlessly present a multitude of scientific evidences that support our divine origin, Darwinists never present insurmountable facts but can only respond with ridicule.
That ridicule takes many forms. Ridicule of the believer stating the facts (Ad hominem), ridicule of very minor points never offered as evidence (Straw Man), ridicule of only very minor points offered as evidence while monolithic major points are totally ignored (elephant in the room), equivocation, mockery, intimidation, or other ham-handed efforts to stifle any discussion or debate.
Darwinists cannot stand an open debate of the scientific merit of their arguments, nor can they ever seem to present valid, sound, cogent scientific data shown to be true by empirical and operational science that tends to support their notions, because they have none.
They have none because — there is none.
The vociferous and fanatical ridicule (that borders on senseless religious fanaticism) and the lack of supporting scientific evidence are abundantly seen in the so-called scientific articles written exclusively in an attempt to refute the Biblical account of Creation. There are entire web communities dedicated to the ridicule of believers that simultaneously do not present any actual scientific facts supporting Darwinist claims.
