Does science actually prove the theory of evolution or does it in fact give credence to the existence of God?
Man has been attempting to reproduce life in the laboratory for decades without any success. There have been no successful attempts at creating life from the basic elements which would have been around at the beginning of the world. Yet, most of the scientific community believes in evolution and the “Big Bang Theory” which states that the universe came into existence all by chance, with nothing, from nothing, and for no apparent reason!
Personally, I believe that the universe could very well have begun with a big bang, however, I do not believe that it all started with nothing, from nothing, and for no apparent reason. Jesus Christ formed the universe, and He very well could have started it with a big bang!
There is absolutely no evidence that the universe was formed by a big bang from nothing! If there was not a creator, then where did this matter come from when none actually existed. And if there was nothing, then why would it, how could it, become very dense and hot? I mean, if nothing at all existed, how could it be immensely dense and hot?! This in and of itself should be a red flag. You cannot get something from nothing at all, it’s just not how our physical universe works!
There are laws which govern our physical world and universe, just as God has laws and principles.
The 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics (google):
The first law, also known as Law of Conservation of Energy, states that energy cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system. The second law of thermodynamics states that the entropy of any isolated system always increases.
So if we adhere to these laws of nature, then we know that energy cannot be created or destroyed. Therefore, how could the universe have begun from a minute particle so very small that it requires an electron microscope even to see it? And if there was nothing, then where did it come from? After-all, scientists tell us that this very minute particle contained all of the matter in the universe, that’s a lot of matter and energy! Energy which they say came from nowhere, yet the laws of nature tell us that this is impossible!
Another thing to consider is that the 2nd law of thermodynamics tells us that the entropy of any isolated system always increases! Remember that entropy is the decline into “disorder”, not into “order”. If this is true, then how could a mass of mud, water, and slime go from its disordered state to a state of order and complexity? It just makes no sense whatsoever according to the laws of nature!
Look around you in the world, what do you see going from a disordered state of decay to a state of order? What physically goes from being dead to being alive? I don’t see it! I see just the opposite happening, from a state of order to a state of disorder, this is true for everything in the universe.
How many times have you placed a banana on the counter and it goes bad really fast? On the other hand, how many times have you placed a banana on the counter and it becomes fresher?! Even when you put the banana in the refrigerator, at some point it will go bad, just a little delayed. This is true for all things, over time everything will decay and go into a state of disorder! And if all things go into a state of disorder, then how could evolution be true? With evolution you must take simple, disordered elements and they must become ordered, into a higher state of being. Many scientists claim that we have evolved from a lower form of life, that we have become better and more intelligent from a less intelligent source, yet, this goes against the laws of nature.
It’s not really that difficult to see and understand, yet many scientists make it out to be so.
If the laws of nature hold true for the entire universe, and they do, then there must be another explanation as to how the universe was formed, and how nature itself began. The bible tells us how it all started, it was created by Jesus Christ. Scientific study disproves evolution and the “Big Bang” from nothing, yet it substantiates the “creation” of the universe!
On another note, Atheists don’t believe in God, yet I get many of them arguing with me about God! This makes no sense to me whatsoever. They not only argue with me about God, many of them claim to be mad at Him and hate Him! But, if they do not even believe in the existence of God, then how could they hate Him? I mean, if He doesn’t even exist how could they hate Him? You cannot hate something that doesn’t even exist!
Evolution and the “Big Bang Theory”, all began with nothing, in the middle of nothing, formed without nothing, in order to do nothing, all by chance, all against the laws of nature. All of this formed from disorder and disarray, evolving into higher and higher levels of order and intelligence, intelligence from nothing. Wow, that sure sounds convincing to me!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
