The Conflict Between the Bible and Evolution- Ancient
Part 3- Conclusion
the previous articles we took the time to consider
first, that evolution is in fact a religion, based upon
faith and NOT science. It is a fact that His creation is
designed so that no matter the position you take:
creation or evolution, you will come face to face with
God. We then followed up by taking a look at the false
assumptions that are made in an attempt to prove these
false assumptions. Now I would like to consider just a
few of the blaring conflicts that are found between the
Bible and evolution. You will remember also that I said
that we, as God’s people ought not to subject God’s
word, the Bible to science, but rather we are to subject
science to the Scriptures. The real question is whom do
we believe; God and His word, or do we believe the “oppositions
of science falsely so called: which some professing have
erred concerning the faith?” (1 Tim 6:20-21). As we
have moved in this study it has become perfectly obvious
to us that EVOLUTION SCIENCE is not a science, and
cannot and will not be subject to the truth of God’s
word, and cannot be nor will it ever be able to be
placed under the scientific method of OBSERVATION
and EXPERIMENT, and the MAKING and TESTING of IDEAS that
need to be proven right or wrong.
his book, “The Collapse of Evolution,” by Scott
Huse, who lists 24 glaring contrasts between what the
Bible tells us and that of evolutionary thinking:
That God is the Creator of all things (Gen. 1).
That God is NOT the Creator, and that natural chance
processes can account for the existence of all things.
That God created the world and all creation was created
in six LITERAL days (Gen 1).
That the world and all creation evolved over the eons.
That God finished with His creation (Gen. 1).
That the creative processes are still continuing today.
That God created the oceans before the land (Gen. 1:2).
That the land came before the oceans.
That God created the atmosphere between two hydrospheres
That there is one single atmosphere and hydrosphere.
That God brought forth life first on dry land (Gen.
That life began in the oceans.
That God’s first created life was land plants (Gen.
That marine life evolved first.
8. Bible: That God created the
earth before the sun and the stars (Gen. 1:14-19).
That the sun and stars came before the earth.
That God created fruit trees came before fishes (Gen.
That fish came before fruit trees.
That God created stars were made on the fourth day (Gen.
That stars evolved and are still evolving at various
That God created all the birds and fish on the fifth day
That fish evolved hundreds of millions of years before
That God created birds before insects (Gen. 1:20-21).
That insects came before birds.
That God created whales before reptiles (Gen. 1:20-31).
That reptiles came before whales.
That God created birds before reptiles (Gen. 1:20-31).
That reptiles came before birds.
That God created man before there was rain (Gen. 2:5).
That rain came before man.
That God created man before woman (Gen. 2:21-22).
That woman came before man (by genetics).
That God created Light before He created the sun (Gen.
That the sun came before there was any light.
That God created plants before He created the sun (Gen.
That the sun came before any plants.
That God created abundance and verity of marine life all
at once (Gen 1:20-21).
Evolution: That marine life
gradually developed from a primitive blob.
20. Bible: That God created
Man’s body from the dust of the earth (Gen. 2:7).
That man evolved from monkeys.
That God gave man dominion over all other organisms
That most organisms were extinct before man existed.
That God created man originally as a vegetarian (Gen.
That man was originally a meat eater.
23. Bible: That
God created fixed and distinct kinds of plants and
21-25; 1 Cor. 15:38-39).
That all life forms are in a state of flux and are
continuing to evolve.
That Man’s sin is the cause of death (Rom. 5:12).
That struggle and death existed long before man evolved.
Do we see a pattern here?
Notice the complete lack of anything that has to do with
God? An evolutionist can be heard to say, “I am far
minded. I leave God out of everything.” And in addition
to these specific direct contradictions, we can see that
there are glaring differences of general godless
atheistic evolution and scriptural truth. Our
Lord Jesus Christ said, “A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth
good fruit,” Matt. 7:18, The evil fruit on the tree
of evolution has proven to be anti-God and
anti-Christian in all of its systems of belief and
practice. This is the fruit of Adolph Hitler’s Nazism
and Carl Marx’s communism. In society, in general it has
brought on apostasy, atheism, secular humanism and
liberalism, along with ethical relativism, which has
spread throughout our society like a deadly cancer!
According to evolution,
man is only ONE of the MANY other animals that has
evolved and is only a product of a vague purposeless
process; therefore, he is conveniently freed from all
moral obligations and responsibilities. After all, “HE
IS ONLY AN ACCIDENT OF NATURE, AN INTELLIGENT ANIMAL AT
So which is it, evolution
or creation, chance or God the Creator? Look at Scott
Huse’s list, look at number 16 for example; the Bible
says that God created man before He created the woman.
Evolution blatantly declares that the woman is
genetically before the man. Clearly evolution says that
there is no such thing as God! The two views are
mutually exclusive to one another. We either must
believe the Bible as God’s truth, or we believe the
speculations of men. Will we bow ourselves, and our
children to “science falsely so called,”(1 Tim
6:20), or will we bow down to the Great Creator God of
all creation? Let us as God’s people choose God’s Word
and not the speculations of evil men. You cannot be an
evolutionist and at the same time believe the Bible as
it is written. The plain truth of scripture is that “God
When we consider
evolution, and say that it is false speculation, we are
talking about MACROEVOLUTION. And what scientists call
MICROEVOLUTION, obviously does occur. But what is the
difference between MACROEVOLUTION and MICROEVOLUTION?
First, MACROEVOLUTION means start with one cell and end
up with man. MICROEVOLUTION basically is the genetic
variety within certain kinds of organisms. For example,
people are all different all over the world, even though
we all came from the same parents; Adam and Eve. We all,
each and every one of us look different and distinctly
unique from one another. This is MICROEVOLUTION or
adaptation, with genetic variation. This is what
confuses the evolutionist. MICROEVOLUTION accounts for
different kinds of plants and animals. For example we
find popcorn, sweet corn, and field corn; hound dogs,
poodles, collies and German Shepherds. However, does
this prove evolution is true? No, not at all, it proves
that there are different variations within plants and
animals, such as corn and dogs.
Let us consider a brief
study of primitive languages, in Gen. 11:1-9, we find
the account of the Tower of Babel, and see where God, the
Creator, separates all of the different races:
“And the whole earth
was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to
pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a
plain in the
land of Shinar; and they
dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us
make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick
for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said,
Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may
reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be
scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And
the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which
the children of men builded.
And the LORD said,
Behold, the people is one, and they have all one
language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing
will be restrained from them, which they have imagined
to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their
language, that they may not understand one another's
So the LORD scattered
them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth:
and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the
name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there
confound the language of all the earth: and from thence
did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all
In the beginning everyone
spoke the same language, isn’t it interesting that we
are told these all spoke the same language? One single
tongue? Otherwise how could all of these people
undertake such a building project? Listen to what God
said about them: “the people is one, and they have
all one language; and this they begin to do: and now
nothing will be restrained from them, which they have
imagined to do.” And yet evolutionists wants us to
believe that ancient caveman’s language were no more
then simple grunts? However, the scriptures prove that
the further we go back the more complex that language
is. This fact flies in the face of evolution theory.
tell us that just the opposite is true as they study
languages they find that the further that they go back
the more complex the language becomes. In other words
the “more primitive” the language is, the more complex
If evolution was true and
man gradually evolved from a more primitive creature,
then their language ought to get simpler the older and
further back that we look. Then we ought to find
prehistoric man communicating first in simple grunts;
then later with simple syllables; going on to
multi-syllables like “ba-na-na;” then we ought to began
to find evidence of more complex sentence structure as
we come forward through time. But, this is simply not
the case. In fact, such early languages like the
language of early Sumeria are so complex that there are
only a few scholars who are able to decipher it.
The Bible tells us how
all of the races and languages came about, as well as
where the complex “primitive” came from. God, in one
single instant created each language fully mature.
Evolution cannot offer us any good explanation for why
these early languages were so complex.
Did you know that
linguistic researchers have searched for one “primitive”
mother language, that they call, Proto-Indo-European? In
the November 5th, 1990 issue of the U.S. News and World Report, page 62, two linguistic
Russia named Thomas Gamrelidze and Vyacheslav Ivanov
traced it to an area called Anatolia, which is now part
of Turkey, and they tell us that it spread throughout
“Europe and the sub-continent.” The Bible says, “And
the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth
day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat,”
(Gen. 8:4) in TURKEY! Isn’t it wonderful to know that
“true science” traces language back to exactly that
particular place on the earth? The scriptures tell us
so, and the linguist’s all agree!
These ungodly people are
described in Romans 1:19-23, “Because that which may
be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed
it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the
creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood
by the things that are made, even his eternal power and
Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that,
when they knew God, they glorified him not as God,
neither were thankful; but became vain in their
imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
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.” They have
examined the creation and, in sinful rebellion, have
willingly chosen to believe a lie!
In closing let me say
that God will prevail! He has ALREADY won the victory!
It may seem that evolution is winning, but they are only
winning a few skirmishes, but let us not forget that the
Lord will have the last word.
The Creator God tells us
how everything will end in Philippians 2:10-11, “That
at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in
heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” May God
bless us to continue in the faith, to walk the strait “gate,
and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life,” for
there are “few there be that find it.” May God
bless us to seek to understand and to teach our children
the TRUTH, as it is in God’s word, the scriptures.
