The tireless search for our ancestors

Most people are aware of the constant search for our ape-like ancestors.  This search costs millions, but it suits the agenda of the evil ruler of this world, the devil. 1  He wants people to believe that they evolved, and that Genesis 1 is nonsense.  Man came from ape-like ancestors through the process of evolution.

#  They trust that most people are gullible. 

People believe that a few bones are conclusive evidence that we evolved.  For some reason the bones are supposed to be clear, factual ‘proof’ that they are our ancestors.  Except for some small problems:

#  The ‘proofs’ fade away and are replaced.

For the seekers after ‘The Lost Bones of the Ancestors’ the search never stops.  If this or that one is not right, there are always new finds, new announcements, new news conferences where they discuss the latest find in great detail.  After a while it is replaced by another ‘exciting breathtaking find.’

#  They want to rewrite the story of our species.

Evolution News and Science Today reports that the latest find was in North Africa, in Jebel Irhoud, Morocco.  The article explains that the main idea is to ‘Rewrite the story of our species.’ 2

#  Why do they look for these ‘ancestors?’

Isn’t it a waste of time to try and account for the intellectual mind, creativity, clear speech, et cetera, of man?  But the search has to do with one thing only: any search, however costly and futile, is better than to accept that Genesis 1 is true.  They cannot and will not agree that God is the Creator, since that means they have to take notice of what Scripture reveals and they refuse to do that.

#  The search is a tribute to the accuracy of Genesis 1.

It is remarkable that such a massive ‘industry’ as evolution, paleontology, the search for aliens, and others have sprung up to refute the Genesis 1 account of creation.  It is a tribute to the accuracy and truth of the Bible.  The money spent on these fruitless searches would have gone a long way to help the poor and destitute or some other worthy cause.  That, however, is not the idea.

Conclusion

The search for aliens and our ‘roots’ will never stop.  Why?  Genesis 1 will remain a stumbling block for the ruler of this world, the devil, in his quest to lead people astray.

Chop one verse and others will follow.

There is a massive ‘industry’ to defend Darwinian evolution, even from inside the Church.  Despite the fact that there is no solid scientific proof for Darwinian evolution, some ‘Christians’ still insist it is true.  The problem is, one has to be consistent in the exegesis of Scripture.  Let us look at two very specific verses, Romans 1:20 and Ephesians 2:10.

#  Romans 1:20

  • ‘For since the creation of the the world God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without any excuse.’
  • The word used is ‘workmanship’ or ‘handiwork.’  Creation is the handiwork of God.  This specific word ‘handiwork’ is found only in one other place in the New Testament, in Ephesians 2:10.

# Ephesians 2:10

‘For we are God’s workmanship [handiwork], created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’  That means the ‘creation’ of new creatures in Jesus, is also the handiwork of God.

#  God created two separate ‘things’

  • God created the universe through Jesus ‘…and through whom [Jesus] He [God] made the universe….’ 1
  • God also created His children to be new ‘creations’ in Christ Jesus, ‘…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!’

#  Romans 1:20 and Ephesians 2:10 are related.

Because the New Testament uses ‘handiwork’ or ‘workmanship’ only in these two verses, there is a relationship between them.  Both testify to God’s creative ability.  The one is physical and visible, the other one spiritual and invisible.  Yet both are real: they demonstrate God’s, ‘eternal power and divine nature.’ 

#  They stand or fall together.

If six day creation is not the handiwork of God, why would the creation of new people in Christ be?  This is an example of the ‘domino’ principle in Scripture.  When you lose faith in one verse or principle, your faith in the rest of the Bible starts to topple.

Conclusion  

Both Ephesians 2:10 and Romans 1:20 are true.  God created the universe in six days to be our temporal home.  He will renew it to be the eternal home of people who were renewed in their inner being.  All this is due to God’s power!

God still stands tall as the Creator

A person who denies Genesis 1 has to prove how complex living machines evolved.

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.

Conclusion

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.
