Creation is the only true justification for why man was created and should be the only explanation because all people are created on purpose for a purpose by god.The Bible contains hundreds of verses with the expression “if” and “then.” Biblical “if – then” statements are related to the commonplace meaning of words and ordinary affairs. For example, Genesis 24: 8 “But if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be free from this my oath; only do not take my son back there.” Another example, if a witness refuses to publicly testify to what he has seen, then he shall be guilty (Leviticus 5: 1).
Formal logic did not come into existence until Aristotle. Logical syllogisms only go back about a century. In mathematical logic, words often have metaphysical meanings. For example, if the universe is 6,000 years old, then its diameter cannot be greater than 6,000 light years. In this logical proposition, certain metaphysical definitions are relied on without proof.We are well advised to take it seriously and literally, for God is able to say what He means, and will someday hold us accountable for believing what He says! Furthermore, the account is reasonable and logical, fully in accord with all true science and history. The following chain of logic, while not compelling belief on the part of those who refuse to believe, at least demonstrates the reasonableness of biblical creation.
Berry 2 It is axiomatic that there are only two possible basic models of origins–that is, of the origin of the universe, of the earth, of life, of human life, and of all the basic systems of the cosmos. These are, in simplest terms, evolution or creation. Either the origin of things can be understood in terms of continuing natural processes, or they cannot–one or the other. If they cannot, then we must resort to completed supernatural processes to explain the origin of at least the basic symptoms of the cosmos. Evolution and creation thus exhaust the possibilities, as far as origins are concerned.
This necessarily means that if we can “falsify” either model of origins, then the other must be true. There is no other option. By definition, evolution should still be occurring now, since it is to be explained by present processes. If there is anything certain in this world, however, it is that there is no evidence whatever that evolution is occurring today–that is, true vertical evolution, from some simpler kind to a more complex kind. No one has ever observed a star evolve from hydrogen, life evolve from chemicals, a higher species evolve from a lower species, a man from an ape, or anything else of this sort. Not only has no one ever observed true evolution in action, no one knows how evolution works, or even how it might work. Since no one has ever seen it happen, and no one yet has come up with a workable mechanism to explain it, it would seem that it has been falsified, at least as far as the present world is concerned. This does not prove it did not.
Berry 3 happen in the past, of course, but the evolutionist should recognize that this means it is not science, since it is not observable. Evolution must be accepted on faith. What about the Past? Actually, there is no evidence at all that evolution ever took place in the past either. In all recorded history, extending back nearly five thousand years, no one has ever recorded the natural evolution of any kind of creature into a more complex kind. Furthermore, all known vertical changes seem to go in the wrong direction. An average of at least one species has become extinct every day since records have been kept, but no new species have evolved during that time. Stars explode, comets and meteorites disintegrate, the biosphere deteriorates, and everything eventually dies, so far as all historical observations go, but nothing has ever evolved into higher complexity.
But how about prehistoric changes? The only real records we have of this period are presumably to be found in the sedimentary rocks of the earth’s crust, where billions of fossil remains of formerly living creatures have been preserved for our observation. Again, however, the story is one of extinction, not evolution. Numerous kinds of extinct animals are found but never, in all of these billions of fossils, is a truly incipient or transitional form found. No fossil has ever been found with half scales/half feathers, half legs/half wings, half-developed heart, half-developed eye, or any other such thing.
If evolution were true, there should be millions of transitional types among these Berry 4 multiplied billions of fossils–in fact, everything should show transitional features. But they do not! If one were to rely strictly on the observed evidence, he would have to agree that past evolution has also been falsified.
Time is measurable. It is pure speculation to imagine that one can measure what one cannot detect. The Bible states that long-term events are in our minds: “He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end”. Evidently time is a mental construct, not an objective entity.(Ecclesiastes 3: 11).
