2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the

                                     becomes a man.
           How and Why?
4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and
   God divided the light from the darkness.

 At the time of Michelangelo and DaVinci
  a philosophic movement arose called
  humanism.
 Humanism came in the late 1500’s as a
  reaction against medieval theology and
  philosophy.
                    How and Why?
5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So
       the evening and the morning were the first day.

    Humanism had several significant features. First, it took human nature
     in all of its various manifestations and achievements as its subject.
     Second, it stressed the unity and compatibility of the truth found in all
     philosophical and theological schools and systems, a doctrine known as
     syncretism. Third, it emphasized the dignity of man. In place of the
     medieval ideal of a life of penance as the highest and noblest form of
     human activity, the Humanists looked to the struggle of creation and the
     attempt to exert mastery over nature. Finally, Humanism looked
     forward to a rebirth of a lost human spirit and wisdom. In the course of
     striving to recover it, however, the Humanists assisted in the
     consolidation of a new spiritual and intellectual outlook and in the
     development of a new body of knowledge. The effect of Humanism was
     to help men break free from the mental strictures imposed by religious
     orthodoxy, to inspire free inquiry and criticism, and to inspire a new
     confidence in the possibilities of human thought and creations.
                 How and Why?
6 Then God said, ―Let there be a firmament in the midst of
the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.‖


   Rationalism followed humanism and added a
    disbelief in God and the miraculous.
   ―I won’t believe it if I can’t see it! attitude,
    applied especially to God and the supernatural.
   Rationalists (17 century) maintained that we
    could deduce truths with absolute certainty
    from our innate ideas, much the way theorems
    in geometry are deduced from axioms.
    Mathematical demonstration was seen as the
    perfect type of demonstrating truth and,
    accordingly, mathematical proof became the
    model for all other kinds of demonstration.
                     How and Why?
 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which
were under the firmament from the waters which were above the
                   firmament; and it was so.

    Laid the foundation for Darwin to explain the non-
     miraculous development of man.
    1809–82, English naturalist, b. Shrewsbury;
     grandson of Erasmus Darwin. He firmly established
     the theory of organic evolution known as
     Darwinism.
    or·gan·ic
     1. of living things: relating to, derived from, or characteristic of
     living things
     2. developing naturally: occurring or developing gradually and
     naturally, without being forced or contrived.
    The idea was accepted because enough people
     were ready to accept his explanation.
          Evolution & Creation
    8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the
    evening and the morning were the second day.

   It’s a matter of viewpoint!
   Both evolutionist and creationist use the same
    facts!
   Some evidence when examined with the
    presupposition that God does not exist or that
    he does not have effective contact with His
    creation, could logically support evolution!
   However, the same evidence viewed from the
    perspective that God does exist and that he
    sustains the universe, often yields an entirely
    different conclusion!
                Evolution & Creation
9 Then God said, ―Let the waters under the heavens be gathered
together into one place, and let the dry land appear‖; and it was
                               so.

    Evolution is an attempt to explain from an
     atheistic viewpoint the existence of living
     things.
    Creationism is an attempt to explain from a
     theistic point of view the existence of living
     things!
    Theistic evolution is the viewpoint that since
     we can’t explain all the problems with
     evolution, let’s add God to the equation.
        A look at the evidence. Natural Selection
     10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering
    together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it
                            was good.

     The idea of evolution is that all of the plants and animals
      which we have today have gradually developed from a
      single cell billions of years ago.
     Evolutionists believe this came about by natural selection
      working on chance variations.
     Natural selection is the survival of the fittest.
     Moths are a striking example, the modern moth is black in
      color, which hides it much better in developed areas and
      on trees that survive in more acidic atmospheres -
      whereas moths at the beginning of this century were
      almost all white. What’s more, white moths select against
      black moths in breeding - for theory is that they simply do
      not occupy the same areas any more.
       A look at the evidence. Natural Selection
    11 Then God said, ―Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that
     yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its
       kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth‖; and it was so.


      But this does not mean that all the plants and animals which
       exist today have come into existence by this means.
      That would be like saying ―Mud is brown.Therefore
       everything is brown.‖
      God’s explanation found in the bible would make a better fit.
      God created various types of plants and animals and that
       these reproduce according to their general type. Natural
       selection working on these basic types could much more
       explain the variations which are found today.
      For instance, the moth is still a moth! Black or white!

   Define evolution.
   Explain macro-evolution – another name?
   Explain mirco-evolution – another name ?
   When and why did this theory arise?
   Why is this debate about viewpoint?
   Define theistic evolution.
   Name a proof used by evolutionists and a flaw
    in the thinking.
      Several lines of proof to
    sustain evolutionary theory.
                                  Similarities can certainly
                                   indicate relationship, but not
                                   necessarily this relationship.
                                  Two books on the shelf with the
                                   exact cover but one is thicker
                                   than the other.

    common ancestry.              Maybe monkey and humans had
                                   the same designer.
           Atavism- Reversion
   There are some rare cases in medical literature
    which could be interpreted as ATAVISMS, that is,
    the reappearance of our ancestors' organs, in
    which morphological traits, already lost by
    human beings throughout evolution, are
    expressed again.
           Atavism- Reversion
   However, genetic atavism is not accept by many
    scientists, who agree only to the extent that the
    theme is a controversial one. What has been
    interpreted as atavism, they argue, sometimes is
    just a particular example of abnormal embryonic
    development or a rare disease. The fact that a
    phenotypic trait resembles morphological
    characteristics of primates or other mammals in the
    evolutionary development does not necessarily
    mean that a "hidden" gene in our genome has been
    de-repressed. This is yet to be to be proven at
    molecular level.
           Atavism- Reversion
             New Research
   In one experiment, scientists used embryo tissue
    from a chick to stimulate the growth of teeth in
    embryonic mouse tissue. Evolutionists call this
    apparently hidden ability atavistic, supposing it to
    be a remnant of the chick’s tooth-bearing,
    reptilian ancestry. Also, the ability of chick and
    mouse tissues to work together is supposed to
    show their common ancestry, again, from a
    reptilian ancestor. Atavism, in this updated form,
    is not an additional argument for evolution, but a
    part of the argument from homology (i.e., that
    similar form implies similar ancestry).
            Atavism- Reversion
   The main problem with this interpretation is that
    embryonic cells are very flexible in their development. If
    chick and mouse tissues were taken from different places
    in the embryo, and then brought into contact, other body
    parts might develop. This experiment shows that
    embryonic cells can be manipulated to produce bizarre
    effects. Further, the similarity of embryonic cells that
    allowed these strange teeth to develop does not prove
    common ancestry. Rather, it is evidence of common
    design by an intelligent Creator Who used similar parts to
    achieve similar ends. Also, some fossil birds (like
    Archaeopteryx) had teeth. Perhaps God gave some bird
    kinds this ability, which they eventually lost through
    harmful mutations (Frair and Davis, 1983, p. 46).
               Atavism

 Criminal behavior too?
 Drawing on Darwin's theory of natural
  selection, Lombroso reasoned that, in
  any population, a small number of
  individuals were likely to exhibit
  extremely primitive instincts. They
  were, in effect, evolutionary
  throwbacks.
                          Embryology
  12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed
according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in
    itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

    13 So the evening and the morning were the
                     third day.
   In his book 'The Beginnings of Life' (1977, p. 32),
    embryologist Dr. E. Blechschmidt reveals some of his
    frustration with the persistence of this myth: "The so-called
    basic law of biogenetics is wrong. No buts or ifs can
    mitigate this fact. It is not even a tiny bit correct or correct
    in a different form. It is totally wrong." Yet in a recent
    (1980) survey of 15 high school biology text books, 9
    offered embryological recapitulation as evidence for
    evolution!
   The famous gill slit argument offers about as much proof
    that man evolved from the fish as the moon-shaped face of
    a young Chinese boy is proof that he evolved from the
    moon!

14 Then God said, ―Let there be lights in the firmament of the
heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for
         signs and seasons, and for days and years.

                           First, it is in principle not possible to
                            prove that an organ is useless, because
                            there is always the possibility that a
                            use may be discovered in the future.
                            This has happened with over a hundred

   While all of its functions are not fully
    understood, the appendix has a rich supply of
    blood and contains masses of lymphatic tissues
    in its walls. This suggests that it may play a
    crucial role in the body’s immune system,
    especially in defense against infection in young
    children. Its presence may also boost antibody
    production in the spleen, and may play a role
    in preventing cancer.

15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of
 the heavens to give light on the earth‖; and it
                    was so.
                        Evolutionists explain this problem
                         by saying that the human jaw is
                         getting smaller. As apes we had
                         the right number of teeth, they
                         assert, but now there are too many
                         for our modern jaw. However,
                         many people have healthy, useful
                         wisdom teeth. That they can cause
                         problems may be a function of our
                         changing diet. Or perhaps bad
                         wisdom teeth represent a physical
                         weakness, like failing eyesight, or
                         hardening of the arteries. This
                         does not suggest poor design, but
                         a fallen state from perfect
                         creation.

           Evolutionists believe this
            is a rudimentary tail, and
            it often is referred to as
            the ―tail bone.‖ However,
            the coccyx serves a very
            real function as an
            anchor for muscles and
            tendons. These have a
            role in bowel
            movements, giving birth,

               Fossil Record
     17 God set them in the firmament of the
        heavens to give light on the earth,
    In fact we see…
1.   A sudden and explosive appearance of
     diverse and highly complex forms of life.
2.   No gradual change of life forms from the
     simple to the complex.
3.   A regular and systematic absence of
     transitional forms.

     described in the Bible.

18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the
    light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.


   First, consider the prediction of the evolution
    model that the fossil record should reveal a
    simple-to-complex progression of life forms.
    Until fairly recently, an examination of the
    Precambrian strata of the geologic time table
    (the lowest layer of that timetable) showed no
    undisputed evidence of multicellular fossil
    forms, while the Cambrian layer (the next
    higher layer) showed a sudden “explosion” of
    life forms.
                  Fossil Record
    19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.


   Second, if the fossil record is to offer support for
    evolution, it must demonstrate a clear-cut sequence
    of fully functional intermediate forms, by which we
    mean that certain conditions must be met before an
    organism (fossil or living) may be considered a true
    intermediate form. That means we should see
    transitional body parts such as half scales/half
    feathers, or animals that are something like half
    reptile/half mammal. Yet the fossil record does not
    satisfy the conditions for any such transitional
    forms. For instance, mammals take many forms,
    but all are equally mammalian; birds vary greatly,
    but all are equally birds.
               Fossil Record

   Charles Darwin himself stated in The Origin of
    Species that “the number of intermediate
    varieties, which have formerly existed, [must] be
    truly enormous.” However, he went on to
    admit:“Geology assuredly does not reveal any
    such finely graduated organic chain; and this,
    perhaps, is the most obvious and serious
    objection which can be argued against this
    theory. The explanation lies, I believe, in the
    extreme imperfection of the geological record”
    (1956, pp. 292-293).
            Reptiles to Birds Theory
   Most evolutionists today contend that the scales of ancient
    dinosaurs evolved over millions of years into the feathers of
    modern-day birds, but no fossil evidence exists for this type of
    transformation.
   Considering the complex embryonic origin and subsequent
    development of feathers, this hardly is surprising. Scales are flat
    horny plates. Feathers, on the other hand, are very intricate in
    structure, consisting of a central shaft from which radiate barbs
    and barbules.
   Two major theories for the evolution of flight exist today. First,
    there is the cursorial theory (also called the ―ground-up‖ theory) in
    which small animals trying to capture insects with their forelimbs
    occasionally would leap up into the air after them.
   The second theory is the arboreal or ―tree-down‖ theory, in which
    animals that had climbed into the trees suddenly had to jump
    down to evade predators (Eaton, 1984, pp. 1-11; Bennett, 1997).
       Reptiles to Birds Theory
   Thus, from a single fossilized feather
    Archaeopteryx lithographica was born.
    [Archaeopteryx (ark-ee-OP-ta-riks) means
    ancient (Greek archae) wing (pteryx).]
       Reptiles to Birds Theory

   Evolutionary ornithologist Allan Feduccia who
    wrote in Science almost a decade ago: I
    conclude that Archaeopteryx was arboreal and
    volant [i.e., possessing extended wings for
    flight—BH/BT], considerably advanced
    aerodynamically, and probably capable of
    flapping, powered flight to at least some degree.
    Archaeopteryx...was, in the modern sense, a
    bird (1993, 259:792).
Fossils Record & Human
        Evolution
              Let’s be blunt about one
               thing. Of all the
               branches to be found on
               that infamous
               “evolutionary tree of
               life,” the one leading to
               man should be the best
               documented.
              Why?
              Consider dinosaur
               remains.
    Fossils Record & Human
            Evolution
   Lyall Watson, writing in Science Digest, put it
    bluntly: “The fossils that decorate our family
    tree are so scarce that there are still more
    scientists than specimens.The remarkable fact
    is that all the physical evidence we have for
    human evolution can still be placed, with room
    to spare, inside a single coffin” (1982, p. 44).
    And relatively few “family tree” fossils have
    been found since that statement was made.
    Fossils Record & Human
            Evolution
   Reporting on this exhibit, Science News had this to
    say: One sometimes wonders whether orangutans,
    chimps and gorillas ever sit around the tree,
    contemplating which is the closest relative of man.
    (And would they want to be?) Maybe they even
    chuckle at human scientists’ machinations as they
    race to draw the definitive map of evolution on earth.
    If placed on top of one another, all these competing
    versions of our evolutionary highways would make
    the Los Angeles freeway system look like Country
    Road 41 in Elkhart, Indiana (see “Whose Ape Is It,
    Anyway?,”1984, p. 361).
     Fossils Record & Human

   Aegyptopithecus zeuxis (28 million years ago)
   Dryopithecus africanus (20 million)
   Ramapithecus brevirostris (12-15 million)
   Orrorin tugenensis (6 million)
   Ardipithecus ramidus (5.8-4.4 million)
   Kenyanthropus platyops (3.8 million years)
   Australopithecus anamensis (3.5 million)
   Australopithecus afarensis (3.4 million)
   Homo habilis (1.5 million)
   Homo erectus (2-0.4 million)
   Homo sapiens (0.3 million-present).
    Fossils Record & Human
            Evolution
   What, then, shall we say of these three
    “ancestors”that form the tap root of man’s family
    tree? We simply will say the same thing
    evolutionists have said: all three were nothing but
    apes.
   Orrorin was “on the line to humans, on the line to
    chimps, a common ancestor to both, or just an
    extinct side branch” (2001).
   What was it that convinced evolutionists that
    kadabba walked upright and was on the road to
    becoming man? A single toe bone!
    Fossils Record & Human
            Evolution
   K. platyops, and therefore closer to Homo
    sapiens, have much more pronounced, ape-like
    facial features. K. platyops was dated at 3.8
    million years, and yet has a much flatter face than
    any other hominid that old. Thus, the evolutionary
    scenario seems to be moving in the wrong
    direction.
   If Lucy gave rise to humans, then how could
    humans have existed more than 500,000 years
    before her in order to make such footprints?
   “If Australopithecus, Homo habilis, and Homo
    erectus existed contemporaneously, how could
    one have been ancestral to another?
    Fossils Record & Human
            Evolution
   “The Homo erectus stage is characterized by
    a body skeleton which, so far as we know,
    does not differ from that of modern man in
    any essential point” (1965, p. 632).
   The fossil evidence for evolution (human or
    otherwise) simply is not there.
   Apes always have been apes, and humans
    always have been humans.

    16 See now, his strength is in his hips, And his power is in his
    stomach muscles. 17 He moves his tail like a cedar; The
    sinews of his thighs are tightly knit. 18 His bones are like
    beams of bronze, His ribs like bars of iron. 19 He is the first of
    the ways of God; Only He who made him can bring near His
    sword.
    20 Surely the mountains yield food for him, And all the beasts
    of the field play there. 21 He lies under the lotus trees, In a
    covert of reeds and marsh. 22 The lotus trees cover him with
    their shade; The willows by the brook surround him.
    23 Indeed the river may rage, Yet he is not disturbed; He is
    confident, though the Jordan gushes into his mouth,
    24 Though he takes it in his eyes, Or one pierces his nose with
    a snare.

   Job 41:1-34 1 ―Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook, Or
    snare his tongue with a line which you lower?
    2 Can you put a reed through his nose, Or pierce his jaw with
    a hook? 3 Will he make many supplications to you? Will he
    speak softly to you? 4 Will he make a covenant with you?
    Will you take him as a servant forever? 5 Will you play with
    him as with a bird, Or will you leash him for your maidens? 6
    Will your companions make a banquet of him? Will they
    apportion him among the merchants? 7 Can you fill his skin
    with harpoons, Or his head with fishing spears? 8 Lay your
    hand on him; Remember the battle— Never do it again! 9
    Indeed, any hope of overcoming him is false; Shall one not
    be overwhelmed at the sight of him? 10 No one is so fierce
    that he would dare stir him up. Who then is able to stand

    Who can remove his outer coat? Who can approach him
    with a double bridle? 14 Who can open the doors of his
    face, With his terrible teeth all around? 15 His rows of
    scales are his pride, Shut up tightly as with a seal; 16 One
    is so near another That no air can come between them; 17
    They are joined one to another, They stick together and
    cannot be parted. 18 His sneezings flash forth light, And his
    eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19 Out of his

    They are firm on him and cannot be moved. 24 His heart is
    as hard as stone, Even as hard as the lower millstone. 25
    When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid; Because
    of his crashings they are beside themselves. 26 Though the
    sword reaches him, it cannot avail; Nor does spear, dart, or
    javelin. 27 He regards iron as straw, And bronze as rotten
    wood. 28 The arrow cannot make him flee; Slingstones
    become like stubble to him. 29 Darts are regarded as straw;
    He laughs at the threat of javelins. 30 His undersides are
    like sharp potsherds; He spreads pointed marks in the mire.
