All of creation

We Creationists believe that God created all things, just as the Bible says He did. Of course, we are scorned as crackpots by the supposed elite of academia, who belive (as a rule) in evolution. I have read the critiques of evolution and there are many strong points rendered against that belief. However, apart from those there seem to be some obvious reasons to find evolution as not credible.

My youngest son is sleeping on the couch a few feet away. I was watching him and took note of his breathing. The brain is an amazing thing. It regulates the beating of our hearts, processes signals sent by nerves and is “programmed” to continue our breathing when we are not doing it ourselves. Are we to believe that this happened as an organic process of evolution? Did the evolution of species from microscopic organisms to human involve the self-education and self-programming of the brain? How did our brains learn these things on their own?

Another matter is the beginning of life itself. Not even considering the evolutionist’s argument that we came from amoeba to human being, how did the single-celled organisms that are claimed to have begun the evolutionary process gain life? Think about it, if no life exists and some cosmic event occurs, like a big explosion (i.e. the “Big Bang” theory), how did a bunch of matter with no life present in it suddenly (and without explanation) have life exist after said matter hurtled through space, or by smashing into itself? How can life come from matter that contains no life? And how did all of this lifeless matter come to exist? Does there not need to be life at the start for lifeless matter to exist (i.e. life matter dies and becomes lifeless)?

Finally, and similar to my initial point about the brain, how can the most basic and simple of life forms (single-celled organisms) evolve into intelligent forms? A single-celled organism has no ability toward cognative thought. How then did the process of evolution go from that to human beings and our mysterious and magnificent brains? At some point the organism would have had to realize what evolutionary changes were needed to survive, but how could this happen if the organism was unable to collect and process thoughts? If you apply too much heat or cold to a single-celled organism it will die. Evolutionists would have us believe that at some point these single-celled organisms developed the ability to either withstand or counter extremes of heat and/or cold. How? The organism wasn’t able to rationalize what was killing it, let alone how to adapt to it in order to stay alive.

I believe that the so-called crackpots are the evolutionists. But, if it makes them feel intellectually superior to subscribe to their theories then I’m willing to let them have their fun. As for me, I’ll continue to believe what God said. That, after all, makes immensely more sense.

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.

20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22Professing to be wise, they became fools, {Romans 1:18-22}
