Slide 1: 

Evolution Fact or Fairy Tale? For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse: (Romans 1:20 ASV)

Slide 2: 

Points to Ponder Science and the Bible The Intimidation Factor The Seduction Factor What is Evolution Problems with Evolution Evidence of God Life without God The Family Photo

Slide 3: 

Science and the Bible True science does not contradict the Bible True religion does not contradict true science Conflict arises when one or both are wrong O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge– (1 Timothy 6:20 NKJV)

Slide 4: 

Science and the Bible Many of the greatest scientists of the past 1000 years were Christians and creationists. Christianity was the driving force behind their discoveries. The Christian world view gave birth and impetus to modern science The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. (Psalms 19:1 NKJV)

Slide 5: 

Science and the Bible Galileo: 1564 – Inventor of Scientific Method Sir Isaac Newton: 1643 – Law of Gravity Leonardo da Vinci: 1452 - Scientist,, Inventor

Slide 6: 

The Intimidation Factor Unless you’re a “scientist” you’re too stupid to understand

Slide 7: 

“It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane . . .” Richard Dawkins (Zoologist and Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, Oxford University), 1989

Slide 8: 

The Seduction Factor Get the Kids Early and Indoctrinate Them

Slide 9: 

Ways To Get Our Kids: Dinosaurs – Terrible Lizards Movies – Jurassic Park School –Text Books Museums – Natural History TV – Educational Channels

Slide 10: 

Your Tax Dollars At Work “Look closely at your hand. You have five flexible fingers. Animals with five flexible fingers are called primates. Monkeys, apes, and humans are examples of primates….Primates most likely evolved from small, insect-eating rodentlike mammals that lived about 60 million years ago.” Holt, Rinehart, & Winston, Biology – Visualizing Life, 1998, p. 213. “But all researchers agree on certain basic facts. We know, for example, that humans evolved from ancestors we share with other living primates such as chimpanzees and apes.” Miller and Levine, Biology, 2000, p. 757. Beware Of Text Books

Slide 11: 

What Is Evolution?

Slide 12: 

Micro-evolution: Dogs to Dogs Change within a species Macro-evolution: Goo to You Change from one species to another distinct species "For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God." (Genesis 3:5 NKJV) Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so. (Genesis 1:24 NKJV) Two Types of Evolution Biological Evolution

Slide 13: 

The central idea of biological evolution is that all life on Earth shares a common ancestor, just as you and your cousins share a common grandmother. Through the process of descent with modification, the common ancestor of life on Earth gave rise to the fantastic diversity that we see documented in the fossil record and around us today. Evolution means that we're all distant cousins: humans and oak trees, hummingbirds and whales. http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/0_0_0/evo_02 What Major Universities Say About Evolution

Slide 14: 

Charles Darwin and Evolution Charles Darwin (1809-1882) On the Origin of Species Natural Selection – Survival of the Fittest Work on Galapagos Islands and Finches New Species Arise From Other Species Mutation – change in DNA sequence Migration – movement in individuals between groups of same species Genetic Drift – some characteristics reproduce more than others Natural Selection – survival of some individuals lead to changes

Slide 15: 

Created from Earth God said, “Very Good” In the Beginning Evolved from Slime No God Involved Evolution Creation BECOMING GOD HUMANISTIC THEOLOGY LEAVING GOD BIBLICAL THEOLOGY God made man upright, But they have sought out many schemes." (Ecclesiastes 7:29 NKJV) Evolution = A System of Faith Evolution Turns Man Into God

Slide 16: 

Its About Time Time is in fact the hero of the plot. The time with which we have to deal is of the order of two billion years. What we regard as impossible on the basis of human experience is meaningless here. Given so much time, the "impossible" becomes possible, the possible probable, and the probable virtually certain. One has only to wait: time itself performs the miracles.   George Wald  (1906 - 1997)  Professor of Biology at Harvard University  Nobel Laureate "The origin of life"  Scientific American   August 1954  p.48

Slide 17: 

To Kiss or Not to Kiss? t = instantaneous Evolution is a Fairy Tale t = 300 million years What is Evolution?

Slide 18: 

Evolution = System of Faith 1. Its “GOD” is time Given enough “time” evolutionists say anything is possible 2. Its “BIBLE” is the “geologic” and “fossil” records Evolutionists believe these two sources reveal the development of mankind 3. Its “CLERGY” are the scientists and supporters who preach their dogma Its outlets are school texts, PBS television, Discovery Channel, etc. 4. Its “SALVATION” is the humanistic advancement of mankind Man kind is the center of the universe and he is its ultimate master.

Slide 19: 

Problems with Evolution Spontaneous Generation The Fossil Record Dinosaurs

Slide 20: 

Spontaneous Generation

Slide 21: 

If Evolution is True . . . Something Came From Nothing Life Came From Non-Life Ex nihilo nihil fit : From Nothing, Nothing Comes "One has only to contemplate the magnitude of this task to concede that the spontaneous generation of a living organism is impossible. Yet here we are - as a result, I believe, of spontaneous generation." Dr. George Wald, Nobel Prize winner of Harvard University, Scientific American, August, 1954.

Slide 22: 

Spontaneous Generation Spontaneous Generation – recipe for absurdity a. Aristotle believed flies came from mud b. Maggots came from decaying meat, c. Rats came from old rags Jan Baptista van Helmont’s recipe for mice: Place a dirty shirt or some rags in an open pot or barrel containing a few grains of wheat or some wheat bran, and in 21 days, mice will appear. There will be adult males and females present, and they will be capable of mating and reproducing more mice. Flemish Chemist -1644

Slide 23: 

Louis Pasteur 1822-1895 Scientifically proved that Spontaneous Generation cannot occur. Spontaneous Generation

Slide 24: 

The Fossil Record

Slide 25: 

The Fossil Record How Are Fossils Formed? a. Animals and plants die b. They are quickly covered with mud or silt c. The soft parts of their bodies decay leaving an imprint d. Over time minerals and sediment fill the imprint e. The sediment turns to rock and leaves a fossil

Slide 26: 

The Fossil Record Two Models for Understanding Fossils Uniformitarianism Catastrophism Strata Uniformly Laid Down Billions of Years Strata Caused By Catastrophe Quick In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. (Genesis 7:11-12 ASV)

Slide 27: 

The Fossil Record Catastrophism Explains Geologic Table Explains Fossils on Mt. tops Explains Fossil Graveyards Explains Coal Deposits Explains Strata Inconsistencies Explains “Man” on top strata

Slide 28: 

The Fossil Record If Evolution is True: 1. There should be many “transitional” fossils 2. Where are the Missing Links? 3. The Missing Links just aren’t there!!!!

Slide 29: 

The Fossil Record What About Archaeopteryx: reptile or bird? Has feathers like a bird Has wings like a bird Had “teeth” like many extinct birds Has “claws” on its wings like other species of birds If it walks like a duck, flies like a duck . . . . “Paleontologists have tried to turn Archaeopteryx into an earth-bound, feathered dinosaur. But it’s not. It is a bird, a perching bird. And no amount of ‘paleobabble’ is going to change that.” Dr Alan Feduccia, world authority on birds at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Slide 30: 

The Fossil Record What About Other “Missing Links?” NEANDERTHAL - The find consisted of a skull and several bones. Portrayed as a semi-erect, brutish subhuman creature. It is now believed these creatures were real people who suffered from rickets. PILTDOWN MAN: Was declared to be 500,000 years old. Was found to be a hoax. Someone combined an orangutan jaw with filed teeth with a human skull that had been chemically treated to make it look old. NEBRASKA MAN: Based on 1 tooth. Discovered to be from an extinct pig.

Slide 31: 

The Geologic Record

Slide 32: 

The Geologic Record The Imaginary Time Line Evolutionists claim simpler life forms are at the bottom. Evolutionists claim the older layers are at the bottom. Evolutionists claim the Geologic Record is proof of Evolution.

Slide 33: 

The Geologic Record Problems with the Timeline: The record begins with the bias of “An Old Earth” No where in the world does the complete column exist The majority of Geologic Eras are missing in real life Hundreds of locations have the strata in a different order The strata are dated by “Index Fossils”

Slide 34: 

What About Dinosaurs

Slide 35: 

Dinosaurs supposedly lived 65 million years ago during the Mesozoic Era The average size of most Dinosaurs was that of sheep Dinosaurs = Terrible Lizards

Slide 36: 

Did Dinosaurs Live With Humans? Paluxy River in Glen Rose, TX human and dinosaur footprints together Cave Paintings from Natural Bridges, Utah Roman Mosaics – 200 AD Dragons = Dinosaurs?

Slide 37: 

Dinosaurs and the Bible "Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you; He eats grass like an ox. See now, his strength is in his hips, And his power is in his stomach muscles. He moves his tail like a cedar; The sinews of his thighs are tightly knit. His bones are like beams of bronze, His ribs like bars of iron. (Job 40:15-18 NKJV)

Slide 38: 

Dinosaurs and the Bible Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook, Or snare his tongue with a line which you lower? . . .His sneezings flash forth light, And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning torches, And sparks of fire leap forth. Out of his nostrils a smoke goeth, As of a boiling pot and burning rushes. His breath kindleth coals, And a flame goeth forth from his mouth. (Job 41:1ff NKJV) Plesiosaur

Slide 39: 

Evidence for God The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. (Psalms 19:1 KJV) For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. (Hebrews 3:4 NKJV)

Slide 40: 

Teleological Argument William Paley – 18th c. “The Watch Maker Argument” Design Argument Design Requires A Designer

Slide 41: 

What About Design? Common Ancestor or Common Designer? Similarity of Environment Demands Similarity of Structure An Artist is Known By His Style Rembrandt

Slide 42: 

Evidence of Design? The Human Body: The average human brain has about 100 billion nerve cells 50,000 of the cells in your body will die and be replaced with new cells, all while you have been reading this sentence! In 1 square inch of skin there lies 4 yards of nerve fibers, 1300 nerve cells, 100 sweat glands, 3 million cells, and 3 yards of blood vessels and 19 million skin cells Our bodies are recreating themselves constantly - we ,make a skeleton every 3 months, new skin every month. If all the blood vessels in your body were laid end to end, they would reach about 60,000 miles There are 45 miles of nerves in the skin of a human being. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. (Psalms 139:14 NKJV)

Slide 43: 

Cosmological Argument First Cause Argument Whatever begins to exist, has a cause of its existence. The universe began to exist. Therefore, the universe has a cause of its existence.

Slide 44: 

Cosmological Argument Infinite Regress is Logically Impossible God ? In The Beginning God . . . Everyone Has Faith!

Slide 45: 

Life without God

Slide 46: 

Evolution Its Logical Implications I don't claim that Darwin and his theory of evolution brought on the holocaust; but I cannot deny that the theory of evolution, and the atheism it engendered, led to the moral climate that made a holocaust possible" Jewish scholar Edward Simon – Perdue Univ.

Slide 47: 

The Implications of Evolution No God – No Ultimate Authority Except Man Racism – Superior Race (God did not create “race.”) No Morality or Ethics outside of Man The Weak and Helpless are Expendable No Judgment No Afterlife No Hope The Bloodstained Legacy of Evolution Stalin Marx Hitler

Slide 48: 

With God All Things Are Possible Without God All Things Are Permissible The Implications of Evolution

Slide 49: 

Conclusion Know the Facts Share Your Faith Don’t Be Intimidated Don’t Compromise Because of Peer Pressure Science will change in a 100 years – God will not! Stand Up For Your Faith
