Another extremely well written and very helpful resource from Rose Publishing. The Creation and Evolution pamphlet uses the following categories to lead the reader through a discussion of the contrasts between classic Darwinism, modern evolutionary science and the Biblical position of creation science: Astronomy – What’s the big bang theory? What do we actually see in space? What does a young earth creationist believe? Geology – What do we see in the crust? Should we use fossils to date strata or strata to date fossils? Does the Hebrew word yom, in the Genesis account, always mean a literal 24hr day? Paleontology – What does the fossil record actually show us? Do we see any transitional forms? How did Darwin actually feel about the content of the fossil records? Genetics – Do we see strong evidence of change from one species to another? What is the difference between micro and macro evolution? What about gene mutations? What direction (progress or regress?) do typical mutations travel? Biochemistry – What contribution does the discovery of DNA make to evolutionary science? Do we see species change at the molecular level? How do we explain such complex organs like the human eyeball where every part is essential? What is Behe’s mousetrap? Mathematics – Given enough time, will chemicals change into life forms? Is 100billion years long enough for a single simple cell to form on earth? What is the mathematical probability of assembling amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) into a functional protein, randomly?
“An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have been satisfied to get it going.” –Francis Crick
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” -Hebrews 11:3
“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created.” -Revelation 4:11
This is a great little pamphlet full of solid and accessible information to help you navigate through the creation / evolution discussion and debate.
