Creation
« on: August 13, 2014, 06:28:51 AM »
From the book “Are You Being Brainwashed?” by Kent Hovind.
What does "Evolution" Mean?
Before discussing evolution, it is important to define what we are talking about.  There are six different meanings, levels, or stages to the word "evolution."
1. Cosmic Evolution -the origin of time, space, and matter from nothing described as the "Big Bang"
2. Chemical Evolution - the origin of higher elements from the hydrogen supposedly produced in the "Big Bang."
3. Stellar and Planetary Evolution - the origin of stars and planets from dust clouds.
4. Organic Evolution - the origin of life from non-living matter (i.e.) spontaneous generation.
5. Macroevolution - one kind of animal changes into another kind such as an amoeba slowly becoming an elephant.
6. Microevolution - the variations that occur within the kinds such as dogs and wolves having a common ancestor.
Of these six meanings to the word, only number six is actually scientific.  The first five stages of evolution are totally unsupported by scientific evidence and are based on wishful thinking that has never been observed, and only takes place in the imagination.  No one has ever seen a dog produce a non-dog and they certainly have not seen something come from nothing or non-living matter come alive!  Nearly all people agree that number six, "variations within the kinds," is clearly evident throughout this world.  The two primary questions that this brings forth are best summarized as the following, "Can these observed minor changes be used as evidence for the other five?  Or are you being Brainwashed into believing something that is not true?"
The general theory of evolution teaches that the earth formed 4.6 billion years ago as a hot molten mass.  Over the next billion years, it slowly cooled down and developed a rocky crust.  Then, it "supposedly" rained on the rocks for millions of years and turned them into soup.  About 3.5 billion years ago this "soup" came alive, found someone to marry, something to eat and slowly evolved into every living thing on the planet.  This is certainly what the textbooks teach!

If the Evolution Story is True:
What difference does this make?  Who cares about creation or evolution?  Actually this is one of the most important topics in the world!  Ask the simple question, "If evolution is true, how can anyone tell right from wrong?"  Think about it.  Make a list of ten things that are wrong, but before you make the list, I want you to explain how you decide what is right and wrong.  Does Congress decide right from wrong?  Should Osama Bin Laden decide right from wrong?  Should Adolph Hitler decide right from wrong?  Maybe you should decide right and wrong for you and I will decide it for me.  In that case, what if I decide it is okay to steal from you?  Where is the standard for deciding right from wrong?

If evolution is true:
1. You are nothing but stardust that came from a cosmic burp 18 billion years ago.
2. There is no purpose to life except to have fun and pass on your genes.
3. When you die you get recycled into a worm or a plant.
4. There is no such thing as right or wrong, there are no "absolutes."
5. You are an accident and have little or no value.
6. The universe will not miss you when you are gone.
7. Your presence here is a burden on the planet since you are one of the polluters. It would be better for the world if you died.
8. Now, try to have a positive self-image!  Take a class on self-esteem.

The other option is that you were designed by an all-powerful Creator who has a purpose for each of us.  When you die, you face the Creator to give an account for your life.   Your duty here is to find out what the Creator wants, and do it since He is the owner of the universe and makes the rules! These two views of life are as opposite as any two views could be.  At least one of them is wrong!

The Lies Used to Teach Evolution. (Proverbs 14:5 “A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.")
Here are just a few examples of the lies being taught in just about every science textbook in the world.  There are many more besides these.
Lie #1 - "Grand Canyon Took Millions of Years to Form."  The Grand Canyon in Arizona is 270 miles long and over one mile deep in many places.  The top of the ridge that the canyon cuts across is about seven to eight thousand feet above sea level. The river enters the canyon at 2,800 feet above sea level. It is quite obvious that rivers do not flow up hill, so the question would be: how did the river start cutting the canyon?  Anyone with half a brain should realize that there used to be a huge lake behind where the Grand Canyon currently is.  This lake overflowed the top at some time in the past and carved this canyon in a matter of weeks.  Three miniature Grand Canyons were formed in a matter of hours after Mount St. Helens exploded in 1980.  The Grand Canyon in Arizona could then be explained with the flood of Noah’s day.

Lie #2 - "The Geologic Column is a Fact." Textbooks teach that each of the layers of the earth is a different age.  They even assign names (like "Jurassic") and "index fossils" to these layers.  This entire "geologic column" was invented in the early 1800s primarily by Charles Lyell, a Scottish Lawyer.  It does not actually exist any place on planet earth except in the textbook and the hyperactive imaginations of some evolutionists.  If this column actually existed in one place it would be 100 miles thick.
"Eighty to eighty-five percent of Earth's land surface does not have even 3 geologic periods appearing in 'correct' consecutive order.  It becomes an overall exercise of gargantuan special pleading and imagination for the evolutionary-uniformitarian paradigm to maintain that there ever were geologic periods," (Woodmorappe, J., 1981, p. 47-71).
It is easy to prove the layers are not different ages. All over the world thousands of petrified trees have been found standing up running through many of these rock layers .
It should be quite obvious to anyone that the layers formed very rapidly.  Trees don’t stand up for millions of years after they die, simply waiting for rock to form around them.  A gigantic flood is the best explanation for this phenomenon .  Obviously, the layers formed within a few weeks or months of each other before the tree could rot.  The layers are not different ages, by millions of years, like the book says.  Someone is trying to Brainwash you!

Lie #3 - "Natural Selection causes evolution."  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Natural selection certainly happens, but it is only a “selection” process.  It does not create anything.  Natural phenomenon such as weather may select a particular species of dog to survive.  For example, in cold climates only dogs with thick fur will survive.  In hot climates, dogs with thinner fur tend to survive better.  This process is not creating anything new in the dog family; it is only selecting a slice of the gene code that already exists.   "Natural selection may have a stabilizing effect, but it does not promote speciation.  It is not a creative force as many people have suggested," (Brooks, D., 1982, p. 1240).
"Natural selection can act only on those biologic properties that already exist; it cannot create properties in order to meet adaptational needs," (Lea & Febigar, p. 51 6)
Natural selection certainly works, but it does not cause evolution.  Someone is trying to Brainwash you!
Lie #4 "The Peppered Moth."  Textbooks often show the Peppered Moth as an example of evolution.  The entire story is a total fabrication of the truth.  Someone glued dead moths to a tree trunk to take the picture that is often shown in textbooks.  The truth of the matter is the moths have always produced two colors of babies, dark and light.  Even if the story they tell about trees turning dark from pollution and the dark trees providing camouflage for the dark moths were true (it is not!), it would still not be an example of evolution.  Nothing would have changed.  It is still a moth.  It is still the same species of moth.  Only the percentage of the population would have changed.  Don't let someone use the Peppered Moth story to Brainwash you into believing that we all came from a rock 4.6 billion years ago!
Lie #5 - "Homologous Structures.”  Biology textbooks nearly always claim that the similar structures of most four-limbed animals are proof that they all have a common ancestor.  They will point out that humans have two bones in their forearm, whales have two bones in their front flipper and birds have two bones in their wing.  Then they will say this proves these animals have a common ancestor.  This, of course, is ridiculous.  The similar structure of these animals' limbs proves they have a common designer, not a common ancestor.  If you study the subject more deeply, you will learn that the bones of these different animals come from totally different genes in the chromosomes.  They are not "homologous structures” as the textbook says.  They are simply an example of an amazing design. Someone is trying to Brainwash you.
Lie #6 - "Embryology."  Another example often given to try to convince students of the evolution theory is the long discredited idea that the embryo growing in the mother has "gill slits."  Ernst Haeckel, a German embryology professor, invented this silly idea in 1869, after he read Darwin's book.  He claimed that the embryos of all different animals look very similar as they develop inside their mother. He even made huge charts of his drawings of these different unborn creatures and traveled all over Germany and converted people into believing the evolution theory.
 http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-E46WVlzyYVg/UUaVeDrgEoI/AAAAAAAACQI/_o0WPDba9vY/s1600/Haeckel's+Embryos+2.jpg
Above, top row:  Haeckel's drawings of several different embryos, showing incredible similarity at their early 'tailbud' stage.  Bottom row:  Richardson's photographs of how the embryos of these same animals really look at the same stage.
The truth of the matter is he lied.  His own university held a trial and convicted him of fraud. While it is true the human embryo has little wrinkles of skin under its head, these are not gill slits.  They never functioned as a breathing apparatus at any time.  Actually, the little folds of skin develop into bones in the ear and glands in the throat.  To teach that the embryo has gill slits is simply a lie.  This teaching needs to be removed from real science textbooks.  It is interesting that this idea has been proven wrong since 1875, yet it is still used in textbooks all across the world as evidence for evolution.  It appears that someone is trying to Brainwash you into believing their theory.  It is also a heart-rending fact that this is the scientific evidence used to justify abortion.  Abortionists would like for us to believe that the baby growing inside the mother is not yet a human being.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Someone is trying to Brainwash you!
Lie #7 - "Vestigial Structures."   One of the evidences that supposedly supports evolution is the idea that we have "vestigial structures."  A vestigial structure is believed to be something that we no longer need.  Usually textbooks give examples like the human tailbone and say it is a vestigial structure. This is simply a lie. There are nine little muscles attached to the tailbone that are essential for several functions in the human body.  Anyone who tells you that the tailbone is vestigial is either ignorant of human anatomy or is lying in an effort to Brainwash you into believing a theory.  Don't believe it!
Textbooks often state that the human appendix is also vestigial.  This is silly.  While it is true you can live without your appendix, this does not mean that you do not need it.  The appendix is part of your immune system.  "Long regarded as a vestigial organ with no function in the human body, the appendix is now thought to be one of the sites where immune responses are initiated,"6 (Hartenstein, 1998).  If your appendix is taken out, you have a much greater chance of getting quite a few diseases.  For example, "its removal also increases a person’s susceptibility to leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, cancer of the colon, and cancer of the ovaries,"7 (Brown, p.18) .
Sometimes it is better to lose your appendix than to lose your life, but your appendix is not vestigial.  Obviously, you can live without your legs, your arms and both your eyes, too.  Just because you can live without something does not mean that you don't need it, nor does it prove that it is evidence for evolution.
By the way, even if there were vestigial organs [there are not), isn't that losing something, not gaining something?  Is that how evolution works?  You lose things until you have everything.
Thousands of schools around the world teach their students that the whale has a vestigial pelvis. They will point out that in the abdomen of the whale there are four bones that are not connected to the spine.  They will then claim that this is evidence the whale used to have legs and walk on land.  Actually, special muscles attached to these bones allow the whales to reproduce.  These bones have nothing to do with walking on land.  They have to do with getting baby whales.  The authors of textbooks that are claiming this is a vestigial pelvis in a whale is either ignorant of his whale anatomy or is trying to Brainwash you into believing a theory.  Don't fall for it!  The same lack of honesty is used about the Python snake.  The claws are used in mating and have nothing to do with walking on land.
Lie #8 - "Plants and Animals have Adapted to Their Environment."  While it is true that variations happen and animals can adapt within limits, the textbooks teach or imply that there is no limit to the adaptations.  One atheist said, "Given enough time, a cow can adapt to the water and become a whale."  They use the word "adapted" to avoid using the word "designed" to describe the amazing features found in all animals and plants.  Design, of course, demands a designer.  Everywhere we look in nature, we see evidence of design.  The evolutionist would like you to believe that this is just a coincidence, and that there really is no design.  It is all a result of a random accident.
Imagine if you are walking through the woods and find a painting hanging on a tree.  You may look around discovering there are no footprints, there are no people and there is no evidence of anyone ever having been there, yet there is still a painting hanging on a tree, what would you conclude? Obviously, you would conclude there must have been a painter.  Even if you can't find the painter, you know that the painting itself is proof of the existence of a painter.  It is clearly evident, that if there is a building, there was a builder.  And, we know from creation that there was a creator.  It is obvious there was a creator because of the absolute insanity of the contrary.  It is impossible that there not be a designer for such a complex universe such as we see.
Lie #9 - "Complex Structures, Like the Eye, Can Evolve in Small Steps."  In Charles Darwin's book he said, "To suppose that the eye. . .could have been formed by natural selection seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree," (p. 217).  Darwin then goes on for several more pages explaining how he thought it might have happened.  In order to get students to believe that a complex structure such as the eye could have formed by chance, textbooks will often show examples of different types of eyes from reptiles, birds, and even light sensitive spots from smaller creatures, and then they will arrange them in order claiming that this is an example of evidence as to how the eye evolved.  Obviously, arranging things in some kind of artificial order is not evidence for anything.  Each creature in the world seems to have the type of eye that it needs to survive in its environment.  Each type of eye is incredibly complex and conspicuously designed.  One textbook states, "You can better understand how the eye might have evolved if you picture a series of changes during the evolution of the eye.”  Apparently, this book intends for the students to "picture" or "imagine" how the eye might have evolved.  This is definitely not science.  This might be somebody's religion.  The fact is the eye is far too complex to have evolved piece by piece.  The eye illustrates what is called, irreducibly complex.  If certain components in the eye are missing, it ceases to function.
The eye is millions of times more complex than a car, but let's use the car as an example.  Many thousands of things must be just right for a car to run, yet at the same time any one of many thousands of things can make it quit running.  Complex organisms cannot arise piece by piece.  An excellent book for those who want to study this topic in greater detail is, "Darwin's Black Box," by Dr. Michael Behe.

Lie #10 - "Trees of Life."  Textbooks often show pictures of a "tree of life" and leave the impression that the picture itself is now evidence that it happened.  Just because we can draw lines between different types of animals does not prove they have a common ancestor or even any relationship.  Even if fossils are found in a particular order (and they are not), this would not prove any relationship.  For example, if I get buried on top of a hamster, does this prove that he is my grandfather? It obviously, does not.  All of these trees of life with branches of ancestors are nonsense.  People are welcome to believe that different organisms are related, however, this certainly is not science and should not be taught in a science book.  Be careful you don't get Brainwashed by seeing a picture.
"All those trees of life with their branches of their ancestors, that's a lot of nonsense," (Leakey, 1996).
"The evolution trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of their branches: the rest is inference, however, reasonable, not the evidence of fossils," (Gould, 1977).
Lie #11- "Smaller is Simpler."  Some textbooks will try to teach you that just because a creature is smaller, it is, therefore, simpler.  They will talk about "simple organisms" and refer to things like bacteria.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  A bacterium is extremely complex.  Bacteria have little hairs called flagella that allow them to swim through their little world.  These flagella are attached to a tiny motor that spins at 100,000 RPM, faster than most motors built by man. As you study advanced molecular biology, you will see that even a small bacteria is more complex than a space shuttle, the most complex machine ever built by man.  Ask any computer expert if smaller is simpler or more complex!  Don't get Brainwashed into believing that smaller is simpler!
Lie #12 - "The Horse Evolved from a Four-toed Ancestor."  Textbooks frequently show a series depicting a small four-toed "horse" evolving into a larger one-toed horse.  This entire sequence has been proven wrong over fifty years ago and should not be allowed in any public school textbook in the twenty first century .
"Other examples, including the much-repeated °gradual' evolution of the modern horse, have not held up under close examination." (Starr & Taggart, 1992, p. 304).
"Many examples commonly cited, such as the evolution of the horse family or of saber-toothed 'tiger' can be readily shown to have been unintentionally falsified and not to be really orthogenetic,"  (Simpson, 1950, p. 264).
"The early classical evolutionary tree of the horse, …was all wrong,"  (Science Newsletter, Aug 25, 1951, p.118).
"The uniform continuous transformation of Hyracotherium into Equus, so dear to the hearts of generations of textbook writers, never happened in nature,"  (Simpson, 1953;, p. 119)
Othniel Marsh made up the entire horse evolution series in the 1870s. He gathered fossils of animals from all over the world and arranged them in the order he thought they might have evolved.  He did not find them in this order nor did he find them in one location, nor did he have any evidence that any of these animals were even remotely related to each other. The Hyracotherium, the so-called ancient horse is a small four-toed meat-eating animal still alive in Turkey and East Africa today.  It is not even remotely related to a horse.
Even though the horse evolution idea has been proven wrong over fifty years ago, modern textbooks still teach it as if it were a fact. Don't get Brainwashed by this one!
Lie #13 - "Dinosaurs Evolved into Birds!"  It is surprising that modern textbooks teach the ridiculous idea that birds are the descendants of dinosaurs!   What a silly idea!  There are many thousands of anatomical differences between reptiles and birds.  Reptiles have four perfectly good legs that function just fine.  Birds have two legs and two wings which also work fine as they are.  If a reptile were to try to evolve into a bird, at some point it would have half leg and half wing.  Now, it can no longer walk, or run yet, it cannot fly.  This creature is doomed to extinction.  The fossil that evolutionists often use to try to Brainwash you into believing that dinosaurs turn to birds is called Archaeopteryx. Many experts throughout the years have argued that Archaeopteryx is nothing but a perching bird.
"Paleontologists have tried to turn archaeopteryxes into an earthbound feathered dinosaur but it’s not.  It is a bird, a perching bird, and no amount of Paleo babble is going to change that," (Feduccia, 1994, p. 764).
After Charles Darwin's book was published in 1859, the first Archaeopteryx fossil was found.  It was identified as being simply a bird.  Later, when no missing links could be found, someone decided to use this one as a missing link. The word Archaeopteryx means ancient wing.  This bird had claws on its wing, which is indeed unusual, but the Swan, the Ibis, and the Hoatzin as well as nine other birds today, have claws on their wings.  While it is a little unusual for a bird to have claws, it is not evidence that the creature evolved from a dinosaur.  Archaeopteryx also had teeth in its beak.  Very few birds have teeth in their beak today.  There is a hummingbird in Panama that has 48 teeth in its beak. (National Geographic 1991)  Obviously, going from teeth to no teeth is losing information not gaining.  This process will never cause evolution.
In their feeble effort to Brainwash students, evolutionists often point out that feathers and scales are both made of the same protein, keratin. They will tell you that this proves that feathers evolved from scales.  The book will use fancy terms to make it sound official such as, "dinosaurs had some avian characteristics."  Well, a bicycle has certain "automotive characteristics," like a frame and tires, but this does not prove cars evolved from bicycles over millions of years!  Evolution theory is certainly based on fuzzy logic.  Battleships and tin cans are both made of the same metal.  It does not prove they both evolved from forks.  Keratin is a strong light-weight, very useful protein that is used in many substances.  This is evidence that an intelligent designer created both features.  Feathers and scales attach to the skin differently and come from different genes on the chromosomes.  There is no evolutionary relationship between the two.
For reptiles to turn to birds, the heart, the lungs, the brain, the skeletal system, the nervous system, the body shape, and the reproductive system would all have to be radically altered.  There is no evidence of any such change taking place.  Any textbook that teaches that dinosaurs evolved to birds is teaching pure imagination unsupported by real scientific evidence.

Lie #14 - "The Earth is Billions of years Old."  Textbooks often teach that it has been proven that the earth is billions of years old.  While it is true that many people believe the earth is billions of years old, this has certainly not been proven.  There is overwhelming scientific evidence to demonstrate that the earth is only a few thousand years old.  Dozens of these examples are explained on Creation Seminar Part One.  For example, the population growth curve clearly shows that man has only been on earth for a few thousand years since Noah's flood 4,400 years ago.  If man has been here three million years, it is evident that there should be many times more people on earth.
Even if the earth were billions of years old, this would only be the first of millions of obstacles evolutionists would have to overcome for their theory to be true.  They still must get impossible things like: matter from nothing, life from non-living matter, living things learning to reproduce themselves, living creatures producing different kinds of offspring etc.  None of this is ever observed.  It only takes place in the imagination of the evolutionist.
Adolph Hitler said, "If you tell a lie long enough and loud, enough and often enough, people will believe it."  Be careful that you're not getting Brainwashed into believing the earth is "billions of years old" just because that's all you've heard your whole life.
Lie #15 - "Cave Men."  Nearly every Biology textbook these days teaches students that man evolved from an ape-like ancestor.  All of the examples given as evidence for this supposed transition have been proven false over the years.
The famous "Nebraska Man" was actually made from one tooth, which later turned out to be the tooth of a pig.  The "Piltdown Man," found in 1912, was used for over forty years as evidence for evolution.  In 1953, it was discovered that it was a complete hoax.  Someone had purposely hidden a chemically treated human's skull-cap and an ape's jaw and tried to make everyone believe that they had found the missing link.
"Lucy" was found in 1974and is nothing more than a three-foot tall chimpanzee type animal.  It is not a "missing link." There is much more information about this topic on Creation Seminar Part Two, in the book, Bones of Contention by Marvin Lubenow and Buried Alive by Jack Cuozzo.  Don't be Brainwashed into thinking your ancestors swung by their tails!
Lie #16 - "No human Being has Ever Seen a Live Dinosaur."  This is not a scientific statement. This author would need to talk to every person who ever lived to know this to be true.  The truth is that dinosaurs have always lived with man.  They were called dragons for most of human history and man killed most of them.  In 1841, a new name "dinosaur" was given to them.  It is quite possible that a few are still alive.  There have been thousands of sightings of creatures such as the Loch Ness Monster or the dead dinosaur that washed up on the beach in California in 1925.  Dozens of references throughout history can be seen on Creation Seminar Pat Three.  There are also dragons (dinosaurs) mentioned in the Bible.  Quite a few references are in the book of Job.
Lie #17 - "DNA Proves Evolution.”   Many books teach that humans and chimpanzees share 98.4% of the same DNA and this proves a close relationship. This is a lie for several reasons:
1. Dr. Barney Maddox, the leading genetic genome researcher, concerning these genetic differences said, "Now the genetic difference between human and his nearest relative, the chimpanzee, is at least 1.6%.  That doesn't sound like much, but calculated out, that is a gap of at least 48,000,000 nucleotides, and a change of only 3 nucleotides is fatal to an animal; there is no possibility of change," (Maddox) .
2. The difference is now known to be 5% not 1 .6%."  It has long been held that we share 98.5 percent of our genetic material with our closest relatives. That now appears to be wrong.  In fact, we share less than 95 percent of our genetic material, a three-fold increase in the variation between us and chimps."  Human-chimp DNA difference trebled, 23 September 02, NewScientist.com news service.
3. Similarities in the DNA code simply prove the same designer wrote the code.  This is not evidence for evolution, it is actually proof for creation!
4. DNA is so incredibly complex that the chances of just one DNA molecule arranging itself by chance has been estimated to be 1 in 10119,000  That is a huge number when you consider the entire visible universe is only 1028 inches in diameter!
All of the DNA from one person would fill about two tablespoons yet, if all the DNA strands were tied end to end and stretched out it would reach from earth to the moon and back five million times. Anyone who says DNA happened by chance is Brainwashed!
CONCLUSION PART 1
Why would anyone want to Brainwash students into believing this theory? There may be many answers to this complex question. Let me give you just a few that I've thought of.
1. Some people believe in evolution and teach it to others because that is all they have ever been taught. They simply do not know any better. They may honestly not know that these things have been proven wrong -years ago. They sim- ply may not be up to date on the research. If that is the case, we can fix that. They simply need to study the truth and stop teaching lies. If it happens that there is nothing left to support the evolution theory, well, I'm sorry, that' s just the way science works. If someone has a theory, but no supporting evidence, that's their problem not yours or mine .
25
2. Some people teach the evolution theory because their job depends upon it. They may write things in books or teach things to students because they are required to. The fact that what they're teaching is wrong may or may not bother them. They think they are obligated to teach these lies and brainwash you because that's what they have been hired to do. In many instances, Hitler's soldiers executing the., Jews in the concentration camps felt the same way about their job.
3. Some people hope there is no Creator because that may affect their life style. (See Romans 1:28). These people are desperately trying to get others to believe in their theory of evolution because they apparently think if everybody. believes, then it will become true and they can avoid accountability to the Creator.
4. There may be some who present lies in the textbooks because of their social/political agenda. Many people who study this thoroughly understand that the evolution theory i s the essential foundation for Communism, Socialism, Nazism, and Marxism. We cover much more on this topic on video- tape number five of our series.
5. Lastly, some people may be presenting lies in textbooks or classrooms simply because they have too much pride t o admit they are wrong. If someone has been teaching some- thing for years and years and realizes they are wrong, in their mind it may be easier to continue teaching this than to admit they have taught something wrong for many years:
V1/hat Can Students and Parents Dot
Jeremiah 27:9-10, "Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters , nor to your sorcerers, [nor to your textbooks] which speak unto you, saying, [we have evidence for our theory of evolution and that there is no God that made you] . .. For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from.your land;"19 (I added the bracketed past).
26
Regardless of the reason, the fact is there are things in textbooks, classrooms, museums and science centers across the world that sim- ply are not correct. Whether they are taught deliberately or inno- cently, teaching these lies is going to Brainwash students into believ- ing something that is not true. So the obvious question is, what should we do about it? The solution is quite simple: Isolate, Insulate or Initiate.
Conclusion PART 2
What if evolution is not true? All of the evidence to suppor t this theory has been proven wrong years ago. What if the whole theory is part of a major Brainwashing program designed to get stu- dents to doubt the only other alternative, which is that there was a Creator for this complex universe? If the universe was created, then obviously we should try to find out who created it and why and fin d our place in His creation. We believe the Bible provides the answer to these fascinating questions. God created the world in six literal days about 6,000 years ago. This world was destroyed by :a world- wide flood 4,400 years ago, leaving behind huge deposits ' ,of rotting debris which turned to coal, oil, natural gas deep in the ground, a s well as billions of fossils all over the world and huge erosion marks called canyons as the flood water receded. We cover much more about this topic on our Creation Seminar Part Six of our series.
Dinosaurs always lived with man. They were called dragons for most of human history and man killed most of them. There may be a few still alive today, which is why there are so many stories of sightings of Lock Ness monster type creatures. We cover much more of this topic on Creation Seminar Part Three.
If the creation story is true and God created the world, then He must have done it for a reason. He created man for a reason also. He wants to have fellowship with us but we have disobeyed His laws. The Bible says we have all broken God's laws and deserve t o be punished. However, God loves His creation and provided a way for us to be forgiven from our sins through the death of Jesu s Christ on the cross. Anyone willing to repent of their sin, and trust Jesus as their Savior will be forgiven and will spend eternity with their Creator in Heaven. Be sure you are going! God gave clear commandments like: do not lie, steal, lust... The Bible calls this sin. The only solution for this sin problem is for Jesus Christ to forgive us of our sins. If you're not sure you are saved, please, give us a call or visit our website. We would be glad to talk with you m,ore about this.

Helpful Quotes About Evolution
"Evolution is not a fact. Evolution doesn't even qualify as a the- ory or as a hypothesis. It is a metaphysical research program, and it is not really testable science,"21 (Popper).
"I suppose the reason why we leapt at the Qrigin of species was that the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores," 22 (Huxley).
"Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science; Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular reli- gion — a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint -- and Mr . Gish is but one of many to make it -- the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the begin- ning, and it is true of evolution still today,"3 (Ruse) .
"Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable,"24 (Sir Arthur Keith) .
"Transformism (evolution) is a fairy tale for adults,"25 (Rostand, 1959, p. 12).
"The theory [of evolution] has helped nothing in the progress of science. It is useless,"26 (Bounoure, 1957, p. 79).
"It results from this explanation that the theory of evolution is not exact ... Evolution is a kind of dogma which its own priests no longer believe, but which they uphold for the people. It is necessary to have the courage to state this if only so that men o f a future generation may orient their research into a differen t direction,"27 (Lemoine).
"I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it has been applied, will be one of the grea t jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has,"28 (Muggeridge).
"Scientists who go about teaching that evolution is a fact of life are great con-men, and the story they are telling maybe the great- est hoax ever. In explaining evolution we do not have one iota of fact,"29 (Tahmisian).

Dave Miller, who did the "Silencing of God" series, is associated with Apologetics Press.  Bunch of great Christians working to promote true science.

A site I go to is  -   Stevequayle.com for information on current news and he deals with Giants and events like that with Tom Horn also. He does quit a few talks with Dave Hodge-Common Sense and Hagmann and Hagmann for great news.

Great write-up, how can people not see the beauty of his creation from day one to now.
