Why does a modern, scientific society fight against an ancient book? Anybody who looks carefully at society, can see there is a propaganda war against the Bible. Why is it singled out? It is because of the first sentence, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.1
This must be the most profound sentence ever written, if you judge by its effects. There are hundreds of scientists who do research to prove that God is not the Creator, because nature created itself through evolution. These able scientists work in laboratories or in the field, in subjects like biology, palaeontology, geology, astronomy, zoology, botany and biochemistry to try to prove evolution is true. Precious intelligence and resources are used on the idea of evolution, instead of on doing real science.
What is evolution? Evolution is the ‘molecules to man’ idea. It means, in the beginning there was nothing and after millions of years, the universe, the earth and all life on it was there without the help of God.
What are the benefits of a universe that created itself? We are told that a self-created planet is scientific and therefore it is the basis of electricity, communication, modern transport, et cetera. Is that true? Does evolution lead to new scientific findings? Have evolutionary principles improved technology? Did anyone ever receive a Nobel prize for evolutionary discoveries? Has evolution improved new strains of grain or given higher milk production in cows? No! The study of nature has given society television, cellphones and computers, not evolution.
Did Darwin prove evolution (Charles Darwin is regarded as the father of evolution, although the Greeks around 600-500 BC already proposed it)?2 In his book, On the Origin of Species (published in 1859) Darwin did not prove evolution.3 Yet the idea that he did, has led to the most extensive indoctrination campaign of all time.
Darwin proposed that natural selection caused evolution. Natural selection happens all over the earth and it is easy to see. Nobody denies natural selection. It means that organisms that survive are best suited for their environment and will have the most offspring. For example,
- A thick furred wolf will thrive in a cold region and breed well, so there will be many wolves. A small, smooth-haired Chihuahua will suffer and die under naturally cold conditions, so there will be very few or no Chihuahua’s there.
- The finches in the Galapagos also show natural selection. After a severe drought many of the birds died. Most of the finches that survived had longer, stronger beaks to crack open the harder seeds. When normal rains returned, the birds with shorter, smaller beaks increased again.
These are not examples of evolution. They show that natural conditions affect the survival of life forms. There was merely a shuffling of genes to adapt to environmental factors. The idea that Darwin proved that new species can come about through natural selection must be one of the best hoaxes of all time.
Why is there such an effort to disprove that God created the heavens and the earth? It is because the creator of something is the owner. It is as simple as that. There is somebody who does not want people to know that God is the Creator of the Universe, and therefore the Owner who can do as He plans and pleases (He is going to establish an eternal Kingdom of peace and happiness, and people will be part of it only through His Son, Jesus).
The Bible must also be discredited because it tells us that God has an enemy who will never share that new, coming Kingdom. That somebody is the created angel, the devil, Satan, the rebel who attempted to usurp God’s authority and depose the Creator.
The brilliant plan of God is vehemently opposed by the devil. He uses evolution and other strategies to teach people that they are just glorified apes and they cannot trust the Bible or God’s plan. He can do it because he is the ruler of this sinful world, ‘…the whole world is under the control of the evil one.’4
This explains the baffling battle about beginnings in the Bible. The devil has grasped the importance of creation, and he opposes it.
