Romans 1:18-20 ( NKJV ) read as follows:
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse."
This article is written in response to an article appearing in newsvine.com today entitled - "Scientist: Evolution debate will soon be history" ( the source of that article being the USATODAY.com website ). In that article, Richard Leakey is recorded as having stated the following to the Associated Press in New York City:
"If you don't like the word evolution, I don't care what you call it, but life has changed. You can lay out all the fossils that have been collected and establish lineages that even a fool could work up. So the question is why, how does this happen? It's not covered by Genesis. There's no explanation for this change going back 500 million years in any book I've read from the lips of any God."
To begin with, there is no evidence that this physical universe is 500 million years old ( see Genesis 1:1, for example, with the time of Genesis determined to begin at B.C. 4004 ). Secondly, Psalm 14:1 ( NKJV ) reads as follows:
"The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God.' They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good."
Finally, the account of The Great Flood ( see Genesis 6:9 - 8:22 ) perfectly explains why there would be fossils found in certain parts of the world that would not otherwise be expected to be found at those locations. One reference to support the previous statement is as follows:
- David Catchpoole, Creation magazine, vol. 24:2, pp. 54-55 ( the source of this reference was the allaboutcreation.org website ).
Such fossil evidence proves that The Great Flood in fact, occurred, and that the Holy Bible is God's word. The Holy Bible being God's word ( see 2 Timothy 3:16, 17, for example ), there is no reason to question the fact that God created Adam and Eve ( see Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2:4-25, and Genesis 3:20, for example ). Thus, God created the human race - human beings are not the product of chance evolution.
The evolution debate should already be history - the Holy Bible is God's word.
Sincerely in Christ,
