Job 38-39, Psalm 145
There is a legal term, Res ipsa loquitur, which means the facts speak for themselves. When God begins talking to Job in chapter 38, there is no rebuttal or defense. Truly an amazing description by God of His creation. It’s interesting, we think that we know so much in science, geography, physics, biology, etc. but at our best we can only scratch the surface of God’s creation and explain how, not the questions that God is posing which is why. Whenever we hear that a certain scientific discovery proves God, or a new archaeological find proves the Bible is correct, the discoverers have it backwards. God and the Bible is the standard which proves science, archaeology, and history.
The theory of evolution is not really a science. It lacks the scientific reasoning of postulating or hypothesizing a question, experimenting and proving the result repetitively over time. God continually asks Job, were you there when I did this or formed this. The truth is none of us were, therefore evolution is not a true science. Much of this theory took place before modern genetics. Darwinian evolution is predicated on the survival of the fittest. That mutations will occur to provide a survival advantage. This does indeed occur within a species, but it does not form species. Realize that 99.9% of the time mutations cause a loss of genetic information. Therefore, to say that billions of years were necessary to form humans from a one celled organism is illogical and dishonest. Realize this fact. There is approximately 6 feet of tightly coiled DNA (our genetic code) in each human cell. We have approximately 70-100 trillion cells in our body. If we were to stretch out this DNA, in each human being we have enough DNA to go back and forth from the earth to the sun 610.9 times. This could never happen by random purposeless chance as evolutionists postulate. Francis Crick, atheist and co-discoverer of DNA, eventually said that, “An honest man 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 had to have been satisfied to get it going.”
Frederick Hoyle, the British astronomer, responsible for the Big Bang Theory, changed his view and said that his theory could not have occurred spontaneously as he posed, it would require 4 physical forces at the time to have been present to have enabled his theory to be true. These 4 forces would require an intelligent designer to have put them there. Charles Darwin had doubts of his own theory, he said, “Why, if species have descended from other species by insensibly fine gradations, do we not everywhere see innumerable transitional forms.”
The reality is believing in evolution requires blind faith and does not fit the criteria for true science. It will continue though, because this theory has effectively kicked God out of schools and the public arena. As we continue tomorrow in Job to read God describe His own creation, marvel at His Words. Realize our faith is a true faith. Our faith has the Words to back it up, not the other side. Thank you God, for your ways are so much higher than our understanding. It has been said, “If God was small enough to understand, He would not be large enough to be worshipped”.
