When I Consider! – Uniformitarianism

When I Consider!

When I Consider!

“Evidence From Biblical Accuracy”

The belief in uniformitarianism (that the past history of our planet can be explained by slow processes over long periods of time) is not a new scientific revelation. Belief in evolution is built upon this foundation of uniformitarianism by denying that there have been major interventions by God in the past. God knew and forewarned mankind of this errant viewpoint thousands of years ago in 2 Peter 3.

1. Evolution denies the instantaneous creation of very different forms of life.
2. Evolution ignores that there was ever a curse on man and nature as a result of mankind’s rebellion.
3. Evolution suppresses the evidence for the worldwide Flood in spite of enormous geological evidence supporting the reality of this event. This global Flood explains the fossil record without the need for evolutionary concepts or time scales and must be denied in order to accept evolution.
4. Evolution undermines Christianity by assuming that death has always been around is the natural order of things. If this is true, then Christ did not die as a final payment for Adam’s (and our) sin because death is normal and not a specific penalty for our rebellion.

Once evolution is accepted as a fact, is it any surprise that Christianity rapidly becomes irrelevant? Is it any surprise that Europe became almost devoid of true Christian faith in the same time frame in which it totally embraced evolutionary theory as fact?

First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scuffing and following their own evil desires. They will say “Where is the ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” (2 Peter 3:3-4 KJV)

  1. 1. Evolution denies the instantaneous creation of many forms of life because the evidence says life on the earth changed dramatically over time, not because of an inherent objection to it. If God instantaneously created all life, then creatures were popping into existence on a regular basis throughout the last 3.5 billion years.

    2. Evolution only ignores the curse because there’s no physical evidence of it. Christians like me don’t ignore the curse because there’s real evidence that Jesus Christ delivers people from that curse. However, that doesn’t mean we have to ignore evidence for evolution any more than we ignore evidence for Algebra, which also ignores the curse.

    3. The accusation that evolution suppresses evidence for the worldwide flood is slander, in my opinion, and unworthy of a Christian. I’ve now spend 15 years waiting for a good argument for the flood that scientists ignore, and I’ve not seen it. What I’ve seen instead is Christians acting like the worst heathen, slandering good people.

    If you have to accuse people, accuse those who foolishly tie evolution to religion like Richard Dawkins and Stephen Jay Gould. Dawkins loves to look at counterfeit Christianity and reject the God of the Christians, while making silly arguments against the miraculous power of true religion.

    But it will be hard for you to accuse Dawkins and Gould of confusing the evidence for science and the evidence for religion when you’re doing the same thingn!

    4. Evolution actually clears up Christian doctrine my making it clear that the death that has passed to us, which we are delivered from in Christ, is spiritual, not physical.

    • 1. Evolution denies God, so therefore it denies instantaneous creation. God’s Word says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” in the very first verse of Genesis and the last verse says, “Gen 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” That was after the six days of creation were described. Not 3.5 billion years.
      2. Evolution denies God, so it denies the curse. God’s Word says, “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” (Gen3:16) Ask any mother about that. Gen 3:17-19, “cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” Are there not thorns, thistles, hard work and sweat?
      3. Evolution denies God, so it denies the evidences of the worldwide flood. ” And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.” (Gen 6:7-8) The worldwide flood came and God’s Word says, “Gen 7:23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.” There are many good Christian sites that cover the Flood, including Answers in Genesis.
      4. Evolution denies God, so it also denies physical death as a result of Adam’s sin. God’s Word says in Rom 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Rom 5:18-19, “Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” Why did God not let them eat from the “tree of life” if the curse was only spiritual?
      See: “You shall surely die”

  2. You said: “There are many good Christian sites that cover the Flood, including Answers in Genesis.”

    Well, yeah, they do cover the worldwide flood, but they don’t cover it very well. For example, they suggest there was a vapor canopy over the earth before the flood, but physics says the weight of the vapor canopy would create intense pressure and so much heat that the everything would burn up.

    AiG now acknowledges the vapor canopy argument is so unlikely that Christians probably shouldn’t use it. (Kudos to them for their attempts at honesty.)

    However, their other arguments have similar problems. For example, fossils really don’t show the sorting that a flood would cause. Fossils are in a series around the world, and that series is inexplicable by the mechanism of water.

    I have no problems with Christians arguing that the Bible defends a worldwide flood and believing it because of the Bible. I have a problem with Christians practicing slander by accusing scientists of dishonesty when they’re not being dishonest. I refer to your saying that evolution “suppresses the evidence for the worldwide flood.”

    They are not suppressing the evidence. It’s not there. What arguments are presented on those “good Christian sites” can be refuted even by non-scientists like me.

    By the way, most of the people in my church believe in evolution and Christianity is hardly “irrelevant” to them. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a more committed, scriptural, or giving group of people in any church that opposes evolution as a matter of fact.

    • Paul, I am not trying to get in any argument with you. I believe what the Bible says about all of what you have been questioning. I did not write the article, only reproduced it here, but I agree with it. I have a hard time understanding how Christians believe in evolution and the Bible. To me, they contradict each other. God says in the Bible He created all in 6 days and evolution says it took billions of years. Someone is not telling the truth. I only know which way I believe. I will take God’s Word.

  3. Lol. Well, I wasn’t trying to get in an argument, either. I was, however, arguing for that one point I mentioned in my last comment.

    I wouldn’t get in an argument at all with this last comment you made. I’d simply leave it alone; I never argue against the position you just took.

    I used to think the same thing. I wasn’t able to stay there because I take nature as a testimony from God, too, but I’d never try to talk you out of the position of your last comment.

    It’s just the “scientists are hiding evidence” thing that bothers me, an accusation for which I’ve never seen evidence.
