Evolution isn’t the Origin of Humanity

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.

(Romans 5:12) NKJV

For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

(1 Corinthians 15:21-22) KJV

Abiogenesis took place over the six days of creation, it produced fully formed Homo sapiens. Evolution is the process of genetic decay which began in Genesis 3 at the fall of man.

Facultative Authority

Johnny Depp in Sweeny Todd

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) NKJV

Facultative means: of or relating to the grant of permission, authority, or privilege. For us it describes a mode of argumentation where atheists take the perspective that the Bible is true.

Hardened lave flows around a volcano

September 15

Then Job answered and said, I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God? If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand. He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered? Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger. Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

(Job 9:1-6) KJV

Monotremes

Duck-billed platypus

September 4

Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

(Isaiah 42:10) KJV

Australia was part of Pangaea for 101 years after Noah’s flood. That’s how Monotremes got there. If you’ve been vexing Creationists with the issue of Australia’s unique fauna: time’s up, find a new game. Sing a new song.

Immanuel Velikovsky

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

(Titus 1:2) KJV

Immanuel Velikovsky (1895-1979) reconciled science with the Bible as an atheist. His name is universally scorned but not because he was wrong, because no one wanted to hear what he had to say.

Evolution

Evolution

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

(Romans 1:22-23) KJV

The Decay Constant

July 30

For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

(Romans 8:20-21) ESV

The fourth axiom of popular science (SciPop) is nuclear decay has always been constant. It’s wishful thinking, a way to induce a rationalization of radiometric data to make rocks look older than they really are.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

(Matthew 24:29) KJV
