If we listen to evolutionary propaganda, it is clear that they scoff at anyone who dares to believe living things were created in twenty-four hour days. Those bright scoffers cannot understand how people can believe the Bible’s ‘nonsense.’ Well, here is a challenge to those who scoff at the Genesis 1 account.
# All living things have a tiny motor in their cells.
- Plants, birds, fish, reptiles, land animals and humans (created on day 3,5,6 of the creation week) are dependent on the ATP synthase motor in each cell of the body.1,2,3 So every organism has millions of these tiny motors. They are the energy generators of the body and life depends on them.
- If these machines shut down, death ensues very quickly. This was proved in the Second World War when a poison was used to kill people. That poison shut down the production of ATP, and death ensued very quickly.
# The ATP synthase motor
See sketch to understand that it is a real motor.
- You die within an hour when the ATP motor shuts down. Then it had to be designed and built in a very short time for life to exist at all.
- The whole cell functions as a unit. No-one can claim that simple cells evolved first and then later the ATP synthase motor evolved quickly to bring life to the cells.
- If life evolved over millions of years, how and when did the ATP ‘machine’ in the intricately designed factory (the cell) evolve? Nobody has ever answered that.
- We know from present day experience that intricate machines like cell phones or computers don’t evolve on their own. They are designed and created by some-one who had a goal in mind and the intelligence to put it all together.
- Time and chance have never created an intricate motor. Evolutionists imply the ATP synthase motor evolved naturally over millions of years, but they can never prove it scientifically.
# To complicate matters, what about the DNA?
- DNA is necessary for the ‘construction’ and function of the ATP synthase motor. It is another tricky issue how the DNA in each cell evolved slowly on its own?
- DNA is a string of letters that make up the recipe of each life form. To put the DNA letters in a meaningful string so that they send a message to construct an organism, requires someone with purpose and intelligence. 4
- We can compare the genetic ‘letters’ to the letters of the alphabet. They don’t form meaningful sentences and write a novel, spy thriller, or scientific journal on their own. Someone has to plan, design and organize the letters into a meaningful message.
A person who denies Genesis 1 has to prove how complexity evolved. Saying ‘it evolved,’ is not an answer. God still stands tall as the Creator of the heavens and earth in six twenty four hour days.
