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.

‘Myths’ of the Bible

Today many people argue that no sane person can believe supernatural creation in six days by God. Has science not proven that evolution is true? Is it not science that gave us all the advances in technology? So can an industrial country afford to dismiss evolution and embrace the myth of creation? As we will show, the opposite is true. Evolution has never been proven true by science and creation in six days fits very well with many of the latest scientific discoveries.

DNA

DNA

Anybody who has studied or even looked at the phenomenal complexity of the genetic recipe (the DNA code), has to marvel at it. The DNA code can be compared to a recipe or instruction manual, but it is much more complicated. It needs a translation machine, a complex of enzymes, RNA, et cetera, to do its job. So if we compare it, the instruction manual is in a foreign code, with a decoder included.1

Remember that evolutionists say DNA evolved naturally, by chance, without any guidance. Many evolutionary scientists have tried, with all the best laboratory equipment, to prove that DNA evolved. They have had no success. That is why Sir Francis Criek, the co-discoverer of DNA, claimed that aliens must have seeded life on earth.  There is a huge and expensive search for life in the universe. To prove evolution without a doubt, aliens must be found and that might take time. Until then, just believe that evolution is true.

Stephen Meyer does an excellent job discussing all the various aspects of the DNA code in his book, ‘Signature in the Cell.’ 2  There is no way that a natural event could have ‘produced’ the genetic instruction manual. Without genetic instructions, there can be no life. It is as simple as that. So far no evolutionist has proposed a solution.

Now for the baffling question about the ‘creation myth’…. Moses, who wrote Genesis 1 inspired by the Holy Spirit, knew nothing about modern science and the DNA code. How did he know to write that God created life according to different kinds?  It implies that each different kind had its own distinctive genetic code or recipe created by God (a kind is a family with different species, like the cat family that includes house cats, tigers, lions, cheetahs and such).

ATP

To complicate matters even further, Moses was raised in Egypt where they worked many years to construct pyramids and other buildings. Yet he wrote that God created life in 24 hour periods. Plants were created on day 3, birds and fish on day 5, and land animals and man on day 6. That makes people smile with sympathy at the ignorance of the ‘backwoodsmen’ who believe Biblical creation. 3

Yet, neither science nor evolution can explain the origin of the very complex energy production machine in the body, the ATP synthase. This machine is so vital, that if it is switched off, death ensues within the hour.  So when the Bible says that God created life in twenty-four hour periods, why do people snigger?  It has not yet been proved that the energy processing machine of the body, the ATP, evolved slowly over millions of years. 4

Conclusion

Science cannot prove the origin of the genetic recipe and its complex workings. A code or recipe needs an intelligent person to plan and write it. It can’t evolve by chance. The Bible claims that God, a super intelligent being, created the life forms and that includes their genetic codes.

Similarly, science cannot prove the origin of the ATP synthase and life cannot begin or continue without it for more that an hour. So how did it take millions of years to evolve? Which then is the myth, the Bible or evolution?
