51. Evolution cannot explain the origins of the universe, forces such as gravity, inertia and centrifugal force or anything else for that matter. Proponents have no clue how life really came to be. Why not?
A. If evolutionists are so smart, if scientists are the authority we all should revere, why can’t they explain to us the origin of the universe and all its properties, like gravity, centrifugal force, inertia or wavelengths? They really haven’t got a clue where it all came from.
All things contain loads of mathematics and information. Where did all that information originate? Information and math is the product of MIND. It had to be there first before anything else. According to Proverbs 3:19 ‘The LORD by wisdom has founded the earth; by understanding has he established the heavens.’ He is the Great Mind and Architect of all that is.
If evolutionists were to believe in anything but their own belief system, they would have to do the hardest thing there is on earth to do: admit they were wrong. Many find that too difficult.
They would have to acknowledge that there is indeed a God who has all power and who made everything. If they did that, they’d have to give up their lifestyle and seek after God and follow him, instead. That is what they won’t do, even if their lives depended on it! (See Romans 1:28-32 and John 5:40-44)
If their ideas are correct, when we die, we will never live again. If the Christians are right, the instant we die, the next thing we know we will be conscious and alive again. This time we will be endowed with Spirit-based rather than carbon-based bodies, which are infinitely better. They will be disease-free, permanent and a bazillion times more powerful. Why wouldn’t we want this?

52. The ‘power’ of random mutations acting on chance variations is not sufficient to create anything, let alone the simplest living thing. Yet, that is what evolutionists try to foist off on us as real. Why?
A. Mutations destroy information at the cellular level and they never add any new information. Every geneticist knows this. So how can a long series of these result in a new or better being, even if you add into the mix ‘millions of years’? That is more like comic book biology that real science.
Mature and honest scientists acknowledge that this is not the way the world works. Evolutionists who still cling to mutations as the power to create new body plans is simply in denial. Why can’t they just admit it? Because in their minds evolution is their life and livelihood.
They must perpetuate their lifestyle and their income at all costs, regardless of the truth. Many of them slam the door shut the second I confront them with even the possibility of there being a Creator.
But mutations never do anything beneficial for any life form. In every case, information is lost. That’s what makes a mutation a mutation. New and higher life forms have to be made by the Creator. New information must be added at the molecular level in order to get a new and different body plan. This is universal.
Haven’t you noticed that chickens never become fish. Turtles don’t become dogs. Every life form reproduces after its own kind, not after a different kind. (See Genesis 1:11-12). This is the structure and law of the natural realm God built into life. It cannot be breached except by God alone. We have his word on it.

53. If you could live for all time to come with a Great God who was your Father, doing wonderful things in relationship with him or else die and stay dead for all time to come, which would be your most logical choice?
A. The evolutionist would say it’s a mute point because there is no God. But, obviously, the real answer is that the logical choice is to want to live forever with God. The sad thing is that really IS the choice we all have, even though the evolutionists deny it.
They would rather die permanent death than to acknowledge God’s existence. That to me is illogical and outright stupid. Life is serious business and it’s far too valuable both now and forever to waste.
The work, planning, provision, pain and effort Jesus Christ went through to get you there was both expensive and extensive, yet the one word you are least likely to hear from an evolutionist is ‘Thank You’. After viewing hundreds of their YouTube ® videos, I don’t recall hearing it even once, and especially toward God, of course.
They all seem to have a vendetta against Jesus or God or at least one of his followers. They are all bitter, arrogant and hostile. They try to rewrite history in the eyes of the public and the public is dumb enough to follow them like lemmings running of the cliff to their deaths.
I hope you are not one of them. To me, it makes no sense to be mad at God if he doesn’t exist. Ignoring him or ridiculing him will not make him go away. He does have a great plan for your life, even if you slap his hand away.
Imagine if you will a world ruled by God. He cannot by ousted, assassinated or die in office of some disease. He won’t quit and he will never give up on you or anyone. He has all knowledge and is ready, willing and able to share it with one and all. He is willing to give you everything he has, including permanent life and something right up your alley to do for all time to come.
It will be something designed specifically for you and you will love it. In his Kingdom, you will never have to worry about anything. No bills to pay, no mortgage, to credit cards and no doctor or hospital bills. You can not be hurt, killed or maimed.
You will have a much better body that cal travel at the speed of thought anywhere in the universe. You can also disappear and reappear again. You will have a much improved mind and you will not need to sleep. You will be give special powers to do your job. You will be able to heal; work mighty miracles like Jesus did and do exploits in his honor.
Imagine racing through space and materializing on a distant planet at his direction. There you kneel down in the soil and craft a brand new human being. Using your own DNA, you breathe into his nostrils the breath of life and a brand new world has begun with your very own son!
Is anything too hard for God? He did it here on Earth and he can do it again through his sons and daughters, for we will do what we see our Father do. He created the heavens and the earth not in vain but to be inhabited, according to Isaiah 45:18. He said he ‘spread out the heavens like a tent to DWELL IN!’
Lay aside your prejudice against him and give him a real chance to change your life. Just go somewhere private and ask him to show up. He promises to do so, if you seek him with a whole heart. But it can’t be fake. He may now show up bodily or audibly, but mind to mind. Listen for him. Do it every day for 30 days and listen for new thoughts to arise in your heart. Thoughts about him you have never had before. You will never regret it!

54. Myths embraced by religion and its dogma do not prove or disprove God. But we know we have free choice. There is coming a day when all shall know him from the least to the greatest. Is this predicted in the Bible? If so, where?
A. We humans always attribute ‘myth’ to all other forms of worship other than our own. But we often fail to see the myths we ourselves embrace in our own forms of worship. Yes, one day in our future, all shall know the one and only true God. Yes, the Bible predicts a day when everyone one earth will know who God is.
It is found in Jeremiah 31:33-34 and 10:11: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Notice that ‘all the gods that did not create the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.’ (Jeremiah 10:11) This means when Jesus returns as King of kings and Lord of lords, he will put an end to all world religions, yes and including the Christian religion.
Why do I say this? Because religion is merely man’s attempt to absolve himself from guilt by creating a god in his own image that he can manipulate and control.
True Christianity is not a religion, for it is God’s attempt at absolving mankind of his sins and their consequences by paying the penalty of sin for us. He’s the one doing the calling and seeking, not us. He’s doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.

55. The miracle of living food. How did that evolve to match the eater?
A. Humans can’t eat dirt. But our food springs from the dirt. We notice that every life form had to come ‘online’ at once in a sudden flash or we would simply die.
Our food is either alive when we eat it (raw as in a salad) or it was once alive and we cooked it. Cooking makes the food’s nutrients more available to our digestive system. We did not adapt to eat our food and digest it and our food did not adapt for our benefit. They were meant for each other and planned that way.
This shows us the cunning, love, generosity and goodness of the God who loves us. He provides many good things for our benefit including our food. I suggest you study the complexity of the human body and its intricate anatomy on the molecular level as well as the overall view.
If you are like me, you will have to conclude there is no way evolution has the power to create such fine-tuning of the earth, air, water, food and a plethora of interlocking complex systems that had to coalesce into life for it to work. A Master Builder had to make it happen.
Notice Acts 17:24-30: 24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he gives to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men everywhere to repent:'
The miracle of living food or life matching-food is phenomenal to me. Consider what would happen if you were the one left without food. The whole thing is a set-up. The Earth was built for life on it. If you don’t want there to be a God who owns and controls it all, then go make your own food.
No thanks. I don’t want to have to control everything for life to work. I’m glad there is a God to take care of me and especially one who cares about me so much he came to taste what our kind of life is like for us.
Then he allowed himself to be mercilessly and cruelly murdered on a cross by his own creatures, to pave the way to permanent life for us, even while we were yet sinners. No man-made god can match that!

56. Wouldn’t answered prayer prove God’s existence and power?
A. Atheists don’t try this one, so how would they know? After being a Christian for more than 50 years now, and after these many years of prayer, I have seen most if not all of my prayers answered. Some prayers don’t get answered for twenty years or more, but it’s his timing that is best for me.
Other times God says no, and I have learned to be so thankful for his no, because after the fact, I can now see had he said yes to my foolish and unseeing prayer, disaster would be the result! Many of my prayers get answered while I’m still in session.
I never put any limits on God (as if that were possible). He can do whatever he wants. He owns everything, including me and all I have. Thank God he loves me!
May I suggest you try this: Go to a quiet, private place every day for 30 days and ask God to show up in some way. He promises to do so. It can be in just a thought you never entertained before that steers you in a different direction.
Notice: Jeremiah 10:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall you call upon me, and you shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13 And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart. 14 And I will be found of you, says the LORD:'
This is how God may answer: Through a thought, a gift, a yes, no or wait answer that comes into your head, a word from the Bible or another person or even a sign of some sort, though Jesus did say not to seek after a superstitious sign.
Watch for an answer. Wait and above all, be patient and listen. He will answer you in his timing and in his way.

57. How do true Christians know they worship the only true God?
A. There is a difference between the religion of Christianity and true Christianity. The difference is in what they do with their time. How do they worship? Is there a real, lasting, close and personal prayer life? How’s their daily walk with Christ?
Do they study and pour themselves into Bible Study? What do they do with their Bible Study time? Does it benefit others or only themselves?
The true God must be experienced. He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (See Hebrews 11:6) He wants undivided attention. He wants our whole heart. He sees what is said and done in the secret places, and that’s where it counts.
True Christians know they worship the one and only true God by their relationship with him. No other god will do. They can ‘hear’ him because he has given them ‘an ear to hear’. That is how they communicate back and forth. He also does this through other Christians they fellowship with and through his word, the Holy Bible.
Do I have to try all the millions of man-made gods to really know if I have found the one and only True God? No, because I did not make up this God, he made me. Then how do I know he’s real, since I can’t physically ‘see’ him? I have eyes to see him in my mind’s eye. I see his signature on every living thing.
I see him in the words on the Bible page. I see him in my thoughts. His thoughts come into my thoughts and we commune there together. I hear him speak to me in these thoughts, and we are close friends. He calls me his son and his friend. He actually honors me because I serve Jesus.
I have the awesome privilege of instant contact with the God who built and who maintains the entire universe!
I can have an audience with the Great King any time I want one. I talk with him constantly throughout the day and I know he hears me. In fact, he knows me and my needs, wants, hopes and dreams better than I do!
I know he cares about me and that he has my best interests at heart. I feel his presence everywhere. I can ask him anything. We can talk about everything. Emotions are no roadblock. He is not going to be caught by surprise at anything I might say to him. This is how I know I have the right God.

58. Why does the universe appear to have been designed intelligently?
A. The fine tuning of the universe requires a powerful Fine Tuner. Beauty, order, light and its properties, its sheer vastness, the laws of physics that keep it going, its continued expansion, radiation, forces, energy, thermodynamics… just to name a few, are good enough reasons to conclude it had to be not only designed, but built, sustained, maintained and added to by a super-powerful Being.
The ‘big bang’ myth should be discarded out of hand. It appears designed because it IS DESIGNED. This remains the best explanation. The day is coming when all people will know this Great Being we call God.
May I suggest Lee Strobel’s book: ‘The Case for a Creator’. It details these ‘fine tunings’ and gives the facts from real PHD level scientists who can no longer hold to the thoughts and aspirations of an anti-theist from the age of the steamboat, i.e. evolution.
You can also see several of his videos on YouTube ® or collect his books from Amazon or his website www.leestrobel.com.
Another good resource is www.answersingenesis.org. There are extensive amounts of resources from real science there that leave no doubt about the existence of the Great Creator God.

59. How do Christians prove the active presence of the Holy Spirit?
A. I asked this of a pastor I respected one time and he said: ‘God is in your thoughts.’ After pondering on his response for several years I came to realize it is both that ‘God is in my thoughts’ and ‘That God’s thoughts are in me!’ Atheists block themselves off from access to this power because they refuse to even acknowledge God.
Notice Acts 5:32: ‘And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to them that obey him.’ God gives his Spirit to those who obey him. As long as they refuse to do this, they will never experience the active internal working of the Holy Spirit inside them.
His power in me gives me hope, understanding, wisdom, skills and abilities, protection and providence, just to name a few of his benefits. I notice when I hear ‘that still small voice’ inside me and follow where it is leading me, things always work out for the best. It real helps. This is how I prove the active presence of the Holy Spirit.
What’s so cool about this great Power is its vastness and universal utility. Consider the Internet. It is so useful and powerful for information gathering, distribution, communication and retrieval of information, there has never been the like in all human history.
With the Internet, anyone who has a computer and an Internet connection can potentially reach thousands or even millions of people with video, audio, text or picture messages. It truly is a remarkable invention. Yet, it has its limitations. It is computer or mobile device dependent. It requires electricity. And it is not always dependable.
But compared to the Holy Spirit, it is nothing. Let me explain: God can communicate one message at a time to anyone with a mind. He can do it at anytime, anywhere, even in one’s sleep. A thought enters my head. It can be an idea or a word. He doesn’t require a computer, satellites or electricity. Yet, he can communicate Mind to mind. The Internet has no such advantages.
What’s more he can do this for multiple people, in multiple locations around the world and with multiple languages and differing messages, each individualized for each person. Now that’s real Power!

60. Morality and Eternity is set in the hearts of all men. These are things all men have pondered at some point. How can this happen without God?
A. Evolutionists realize that all people know right from wrong without reading the Bible or the Ten Commandments. Also, they know all people around the world have pondered eternity and the afterlife. But they cannot account for this through evolutionary or natural processes.
The mind itself is an impossible enigma to evolutionists, let alone complex and deep spiritual thinking.
This internal knowledge comes to us without being taught to us by parents or school or even church. It is spiritual and comes from a Spirit.
God is a Spirit, according to Jesus, and they that worship him must worship him in sprit and in truth. As mentioned in Episode 59, the Holy Spirit imparts spiritual knowledge to all of us, including morality and eternal matters. This cannot happen apart from there being a Great and Powerful Supernatural Being, the One we call God.
So in effect, evolutionists borrow from Christianity with Christ Jesus being the Creator in an effort to refute it. We call it circular reasoning. It goes nowhere. God built morality into our thinking, whether you are Christian or atheist.
The mind and spiritual thoughts must come from a higher source than mere chance. That would be in the realm of superstition and pretense to believe that such higher thought processes came as a result for random variations working on mutations of molecules that jus ‘came together’ over the course of millions of years. They must have a lot more faith than I do!
Many, if not all evolutionists have never read the Bible, studied the life of Jesus Christ or for that matter even the works of Charles Darwin. May I suggest we all do these things before we criticize?

61. How could evolution account for mind, consciousness, thought, personality, memory, creativity, ability, speech, wisdom, emotion, attitude, conscience, senses, decision, volition, a sense of humor, love or any other attribute you can think of, related to your mind?
A. Simply, it can’t. It takes a lot more faith than I have to believe that all of the above attributes of the mind came out of nowhere, for no reason and by no one. No animal possesses any of these qualities, at least not in the quantity or quality enjoyed by humans.
The output of a chimp, for example, is almost nil, when compared to a ‘normal’ human being. Evolution cannot account for this phenomenon. Only the existence of a mighty God, One greater than us can. I think, therefore God is.
How is it that we can learn and keep on learning our entire lives, yet our minds never are full up? There is always room for more learning. I believe it’s like our minds our one computer in a network of millions of servers with unlimited band width.
They will never be full. The Bible states we are ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’. (See Psalm 139:4 which says: ‘I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.
The presence of mind is a great proof there is indeed a great God who made everything, including you and me. We did not create nor just assume our minds and they could not have evolved because lesser comes from greater intelligence, and not the other way around, as evolution claims. The universe and all things therein just doesn’t work that way and everyone knows it, though they may stubbornly refuse to admit it.
This is also why there is a vast difference in output between animal brain and human mind. There is no way to bridge the gap with some evolutionary story. In my opinion, evolution, as the means of our origin, in malevolently imaginary. To cling to a belief system that is unverifiable is not science and is completely self-serving at the grave expense of all those naïve enough to fall for it.
In many cases they do make it sound like science by utilizing over complicated and made-up Latin-esque titles for ordinary particles, chemicals, molecules or life forms; but just because one can do this does not mean they are scientists, neither does it make what they say science. If it’s not observable, repeatable, testable or verifiable, how can we call it scientific?
We cannot see mind, yet we know we have them of you would not be able to process this information. Why is it that the mind can continue to collect information and learn new things every day yet is never full? Animals and man are completely different in mind, yet their brains are really not the issue. An elephants brain is much large than any mans, yet its output is infinitesimally smaller. Why?
The answer is the minds of men are bestowed. We didn’t earn them. We didn’t invent them, nor manufacture them, any more than an elephant did. They were given to us at birth by the Great Mind who owns, designed, built and sustains the entire universe. Why not just be thankful for it?

62. Does the fact of the symbiotic relationships between animals and plants require a Great Planner with power to make it happen and to keep it going?
A. In my opinion, yes, because it’s not just that bigger eats littler, but that there are other relationship that are co-dependent. One example is the clown fish and the sea anemone. The anemone’s poisonous tentacles kill other fish, but the clown fish hides there and gets protection all the while luring other fish near. It also helps keep the anemone’s tentacles clean and free of harmful microbes.
Evolutionism says this is mere adaptation, but no other fish gets away with that and lives. Rather, all the symbiotic relationship schemes work because they were designed to work by a great Creator with the power to make them work. Let’s keep an open mind toward God and his existence. Then we will be able to see reality clearly. Facts really are more important than theories, contrary to evolutionism.

63. Is Evolution logical? Where did logic come from?
A. As you probably have figured out by now, my days of being an evolutionist are over forever. It’s just not logical to believe in pretense as the means for getting a handle on reality. I may or may not like that reality, but never the less, the overwhelming evidence is on the creation side.
If evolutionism was true, we should find transitional forms everywhere we find fossils, but there are none so far. One hundred fifty years of searching have turn up not even one. So, is it then logical to conclude we will find them some time in the future? No. Is it logical to cling to a belief system from the age of the steamboat in order to perpetuate it when it’s not even logical? No, of course not! Give it up.
They will never find them, unless they make them up in someone’s garage and plant them in the ground in fraud.
Logic is the product of mind. It goes back to the reality that the mind of man must have its beginnings in a greater, not lesser mind. This greater Mind is what I call God. It is illogical to think that greater comes from lesser.
There are no instances of this anywhere in the known universe. It is also not logical to think that some spaceman from outer space planted the seed of life from some other planet, given the prohibitively vast distance to the nearest star system and the physical limitations of fragile life.
Evolutionists are in denial because they do not like to retain God in their knowledge, lest their evils and sins be exposed.
It is logical for me to be embarrassed for the fact that I, too, once bought into evolutionism because it was in authoritative-sounding textbooks I was studying way back then. Thanks go to God, true logic prevailed in my own life and evolutionism stands naked and exposed for all to see. More and more scientists, who are truly honest and noble people, are seeing this truth.
Skepticism, for the sake of just being contrary, is not only illogical and dishonest, but foolhardy, self-serving and childish. It is rebellion, stubbornness and what the Bible calls ‘variance’. You say ‘white’, I’d say ‘black’ That’s a game for fools. Nobody wins. It is illogical to even go there.
Here’s a quote from Richard Whatley, Archbishop of Dublin who wrote this in the 1860’s from:
Men did indeed formerly reason on little and ill; but they professed and attempted to reason; they sought, if they did not always find, some rational ground for their conclusions; and though no doubt often biased by their feelings, they did not, as now, avow and glory in this.
The evidences of Christianity again were contemned; but it was by avowed unbelievers; not, as now, by persons professing a veneration for Christianity, and even a belief in it. In short, it is an age not particularly perhaps of disobedience to logic, but of open rebellion against it. So I have unfurled my standard, and mustered a respectable minority.

64. Given the choice of life or death, aren’t evolutionists choosing death over life? In my experience, many who still cling to the notion would rather die than give it up. Is that what they call reasonable?
A. Many otherwise bright, intelligent people choose evolution because it justifies the lifestyle they think they want and they will not let go of that for love or money, even if it means their death. I personally don’t get the logic of behaving that way. Is this life so cool, so fantastic and lasting that it is worth sacrificing everlasting life for? Not to me. There is nothing that important.
Here’s a parable I made up to illustrate: 'The Parable of the 2 Doors.'
A certain man woke up in the woods one morning, not knowing how he got there. He gets up and starts walking through the woods, trying to find his way out of the woods. He gets the feeling something creepy is watching him. Out of the corner of his eye, he gets a glimpse of a wolf lurking through the underbrush ravenously searching for his breakfast.
He snaps into action and runs away from the wolf, only to come to a 20’ high wall he can’t climb over. The wolf howls for backup and the pack takes up the pursuit. He is the main course on the menu. There is no escape. His only hope is to find a breach in the wall. The wolves are closing in, and fast. Just ahead he sees a door. In fact, there are two of them; a black on and a white one. He hopes he can open one of them and escape.
When he gets there, he opens the black door on the left only to find a bottomless pit of darkness. Narrowly avoiding falling in, he slams it shut and opens the white door on the right.
There, he sees beauty all around. There are rolling hills, gorgeous trees, plants, flowers and grass. Children play happily in the fields while a farmer sings at the top of his lungs while going about his chores. His wife is happily working in the garden, harvesting carrots. Everyone seems happy and filled with joy, in love with life.
Jesus greets him at the door, identifies himself and invites him to come in and enjoy a bright and never ending future with him there. ‘No! I don’t believe in God or Jesus!’ he says and stomps back out in a rage. Knowing he will soon be eaten by the wolves, he opens the door on the left, jumps into the pit and is never seen or heard from again. He chose poorly.
Think about this. What would you do? As for me, I’m choosing life over death, every time. There is nothing worth the alternative. Thing is, we all have been offered eternal life.
All we have to do is accept Jesus, turn from our sins and walk in newness of life. But this is no easy task. You will suffer for it. But everything worthwhile requires suffering. I have my share to go through and so will you. There is no getting through this territory without acquiring a few scars.
We are being moved into position. We are in a spiritual battle and moved into the front lines. But, Jesus is our 5 star General and he never looses even one of his soldiers. We will win the battle in the end. He is leading all the way. We can fully trust in him. We have nothing good to loose.
Let us not cling too tightly to anything in the physical world we live in for now. Jesus gives us purpose in life. In John 16:16 Jesus said that every man presses into the kingdom of God. We are being fitted for our place as Kings and Priests. And that is what living is all about.

65. If life evolved into existence out of nothing but ‘a single molecule smaller than the period at the end of this sentence’, why is everything in the world beautiful instead of ugly as one might expect from a ‘big bang’?
A. It is not the struggle for existence evolution predicts. Beauty is everywhere. Colors, textures, fragrances, sounds, weather, tastes, smells, sights and so much variety and all of it very good.
Evolution simply has no explanatory power to make good reason for it all. And it all works symbiotically together! This overwhelms any other explanation except creation by a great and powerful Creator and Sustainer.
Take the life of your favorite butterfly for example. This beautiful work of living art exists in four forms across its life span which is only a few days. That may be why they seem to be in such a hurry, flitting about as they do.
Butterflies are almost if not perfectly symmetrical. More than 22,00 different kinds have been identified. Each kind has only one or two types of flowering plants they will eat, live and breed from. They find their host and nectar plants mostly by their keen sense of smell. Their sense of smell enables them to locate these plants within a range of five miles, according to some scientific publications.
They will breed only with their kind and no other. Most of them land, eat and breed conspicuously. That is to say out in the open and quite readily visible, even to enemies which would devour them for lunch.
They are not always hiding under a leaf or camouflaged to blend in with the background. Usually, certainly more frequently than not, they are in stark contrast, such as the bright orange color of an open Gulf Fritillary against a deep green Kalanchoe Piñata backdrop.
This is but one tiny example of the beauty of our world which runs contrary to the evolutionism model which suggests no reasons whatever for butterflies to even exist, let alone be beautiful and enduring, despite overwhelming odds against their continued existence.
They should not be there in the evolutionism model because they serve no real survival value for anything else. Even in the caterpillar stage, the animals that would eat them have plenty of other choices on their menus.
Consider this: If all the butterflies you have seen were suddenly extinct, would your life be seriously jeopardized in any way? I dare say, probably not. Neither would it compromise the lives of anyone else.
They are there for our enjoyment. They are all beautiful and really not necessary for life on earth, if you ask me. But I’m glad they are there. God made them and they could not have come on their own accord or by un-divine, imaginary and unexplainable forces.

66. Does the ‘Big Bang’ account for the possibility of evolution as the source of all living and dead matter?
A. Order and harmony do NOT come from chaos and conflict. When was the last time you noticed a beautiful new building result from an explosion? Explosions result in piles of rubble or sanitation problems, not in anything alive or better in any way than what it once was before the explosion.
Besides that, to my knowledge, evolutionism only covers biology, that is, life studies. It does not really attempt to explain the origin of the universe. Of course, people can believe anything they want to believe, but that doesn’t make it so. It really boils down to what a person wants out of life.
Either there is a God, and because of him, there is a purpose in life and a great future with him and no more death to worry about. Or, there is no such God and we have no purpose and no future, other than to eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.
That’s not good enough for me. There has to be more. Religion does not cut it for me. Even so-called Christianity is but a shadow of the real thing. With its rituals, traditions and erroneous doctrines which come more from Hollywood than from the bible, it is still man seeking to absolve himself from guilt but creating a god in his own image.
Authentic Christianity is God doing the seeking. He’s doing the calling, forgiving and changing of one’s heart, spirit and attitude into his image. That’s the purpose of life. We are being recreated into a likeness of his Son, Jesus Christ.
Luke 16:16 records Jesus saying: ‘The law and the prophets were until John; since that time, the kingdom of God is preached and every man presses into it.’ That’s the purpose of life. We must put on the divine nature with all his attributes to prepare for kingdom living. I personally believe the Bible tells us that his government or kingdom shall have no end. But if his kingdom is only limited to the earth, it would have an end.
The heavens are out there waiting for the children of God to come to them and spread life across the universe. Isaiah 9:6 states ‘Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end; upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. (See also Isaiah 45:18, 51:16 and Luke 1:33)
Imagine having real power to change planets into living utopian worlds populated with our own offspring all across the universe. Imagine being able to go there and visit them at the speed of thought. God can do this and a whole lot more. We are to be his children and do what he does. I’m not going to trade that for anything this world can offer!

67. If mindless evolution is real, where did all the information in the world and the universe originate?
A. If evolution is responsible for all things, then it is also responsible for all the information in the universe, right down to your DNA. Yet, there is no way evolution would be powerful enough to make the information necessary to make anything exist from nothing, let alone the volumes of it needed to create life, even if given ‘millions of years’.
I refer you to a YouTube ® video: ‘Does carbon dating prove the Earth is millions of years old?’ by TheLORDismyShepherd1.
You can visit their Channel which contains many great videos debunking the ‘millions of years’ myth. Or just type in the search box ‘millions of years’.
Information is only the product of MIND. Evolution simply cannot explain the obvious and glaring presence of information in everything. Nothing can, ever has been or ever will be made without information. It comes from an intelligent Source. That intelligent Source by definition must be greater than what it puts the information into. So it is with us. There’s no getting around it.
As intelligent as we can be, we will never top our Creator. Lesser comes from Greater, not Greater comes from lesser. That intelligent recognition is reality.
Therefore, God must exist and he must be greater than and much more intelligent than what he has created. He is the Great Mind that created your intelligence and mine. We don’t know the half of God’s greatness. Thankfully, he will come to the Earth and receive his own. The question is: ‘Will I be ready?’

68. If evolution is true as the source of all life, why does each life form serve a specific purpose?
A. Evolution predicts survival as the sole purpose for existence. Yet each animal, each plant, each insect, each fish, bird or reptile serves a different and specific purpose in its own specific place and under its own specific living conditions. It is universally accepted as the norm. Everything has its purpose.
Humans are no different. We are built for a reason and with a great purpose in mind. Yet, on their own, humans can’t seem to figure out what that purpose is. That’s because we were built to need our Maker and fulfill his purpose for us. He set eternity in our hearts, that is, everyone at some point ponders eternity and the purpose of life.
Ask yourself this question: ‘What did Jesus have to say about what the purpose of life is?’ The answer is found in Luke 16:16: ‘ The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presses into it.’
Our purpose in life is to enter into eternal life in service in the Kingdom of God. This will be a real world-ruling government with Jesus as King of kings and Lord of lords.
By the grace of God, he will let us into his story and gives us the right to rule and reign with him on the Earth. (See Revelation 5:10: ‘And has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.’)
Only a Great God and Creator could build the universe with a purpose for us in mind. Only a Great God could love us weak humans enough to die in our place so we could have access to this Tree of Life. Why shouldn’t I take him up on the deal?

69. What were sex and gravity before they evolved?
A. This is kind of a tongue-in-cheek attempt at humor, but really, what was the world like before sex? My answer is that sex came online the day life came online, or maybe a short time later. The whole set of reproductive systems, male and female were designed to fit together. If the male aged and died before the female could evolve, we wouldn’t be here having this conversation.
Reproduction, sex and gender prove God, because they could not have evolved over ‘millions of years’ lest they would cease to exist before they could reproduce. Just think about this. You and I are ‘fearfully and wondrously made. We didn’t just come into existence on our own.
Female bodies are completely different than their male counterparts. They could not have been more suitably ‘fitted’ or made to fit. And this principle holds true for every kind of living creature. That’s a lot of ‘evolving’! No, it proves a Grand Creator, not a mindless random collection of accidents.
On the gravity question, who can explain it at all? Why does it work? What are the conditions that came together to make it work? What or whom sustains gravity? Why is it that gravity is perfect for mankind? Why isn’t it too strong for us if it is just one of those things that ‘happen from time to time’?
The answer is the entire universe was designed and built for mankind or at least God had him in mind when he built it all. Gravity and every other physical law was purposefully set in motion by the Great Creator and cannot be denied. These laws did not ‘evolve’ into being.

70. How do microbes have the mind to think? If you poke them, they react. They know where to go to get their food and the know how to propel themselves so as to get at it. Where did they get this will power, understanding and navigational skill if evolution is real?
A. Let’s keep in mind what evolutionism is all about. Self. Proponents don’t like to keep God around, lest their deeds be exposed as evil. God embarrasses them.
It’s really not about the evidence, but about the life style and choices people want to make. It’s about what they want out of life. Their lifestyle gets messed up with God peeking over their shoulders. They hate to feel guilty, yet they love their iniquity or sin. Microbes present a lot of problems for evolution.
Micro life is amazing in this day of super electron microscopes. We can see what they do as never before. Amebas have little minds. They make decisions. They travel. They reproduce. They eat and eliminate. They make choices that affect their lives. Where did all the information and power come from to make all this happen, let alone the fact of their very existence?
We don’t really need to go into great detail to realize the reality that living creatures require a Living Creator.
Anyone who will not believe this is simply in denial. They would much rather trust in themselves or those like them, than in God, his Bible or least of all, Christians. Many Christians set a poor example of what a Christian should be; no wonder evolutionists don’t want to be Christians. A bumper sticker says: ‘Why are there Atheists? Because there are Christians!’
We who claim to be Christians have a very high calling… to be like Christ. We should stand for something. Namely, we should stand for Jesus and his ways which lead to true freedom and life. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. That is what we should look like as Christians. I pray that we all get better at looking like Jesus, starting with me.

71. If evolution is real, how could evolution ‘fine tune’ the Earth and the universe, as it appears to be?
A. The Big Bang hoax is the idea that nothing exploded into everything for no reason and that’s how the universe came to be. This explosion took billions of years. Then, life took millions of years to self assemble out of nothing into what we see today. Yeah, that happens. We see stuff like that every day. Not.
Do explosions result in perfect round orbs? Do these orbs support themselves on nothing? Do they revolve and spin? Do they support life? Do they have moons that orbit around them in any timely, orderly manner? Do new orbs continue to form, long after the explosion is over? I’d say these ideas are absurd, silly and childish, but that would be an insult to the intelligence of children.
They know better than this. Even if all the billions of people believed the moon really is made out of Swiss cheese, would you believe that too? Sorry. Not me. Fine tuning, of not only our planet but the entire universe, is not possible without an intelligent, benevolent and extremely powerful Being to make it happen. Wake up to reality. Admit it. Swallow your pride. Get a grip.
Study the book ‘The Case for a Creator’ by Lee Strobel or watch his videos of YouTube ® to see the precision and detail of the great lengths God initiated to make the life you and I now enjoy possible.
Truth is we don’t know the half of it. It’s way beyond the scope of this book, for sure. Suffice it to say there a lot more to it than meets the eye.
But here are just a few of the things that had to come together to make life possible: The right size planet. The right atmosphere. The right distance from the sun. The right brightness, temperature, radiation, rotation, color, size and gas make-up of the sun.
The right oxygen, nitrogen, helium and other gas levels of the atmosphere of our mother earth planet. The right tilt and movement of the earth to provide seasons. The right constants that sustain the earth which in turn sustains our lives. The very presence of water required for carbon-based creatures. The right soil out of which we derive our food. The right vegetation which makes our oxygen, freshens our air and provides, shade, food and building materials.
You get the idea. All this did not happen by mere chance or happenstance. It was all set up for us. (I didn’t mention all the intricacies about the physiology and psychology of human anatomy and mental acuity for sake of space.)
And it was set up for a great purpose: so we might have life and have it to the full in relationship with our Creator across the breadth, length, heighth and depth of the entire universe for all time to come. That, to me, is more than enough reason to believe, trust and pursue God and all he has in mind to do for and with us as his children.

72. Evolutionism says science is truth and it has or someday will have all the answers. What is the Christian perspective of truth and its’ originator?
A. What we know about the universe, our sun, our moon and the laws of Astro-physics, Medical Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology is increasingly pointing toward the necessity of a Great Creator God.
The more we look into living creatures and into the electron microscope at the molecular level, the more complex life is and the more the need for there to be a Creator. If there is a God and there is overwhelming prove that there indeed is, then it follows that we better find out what he said and take the responsibility to follow it.
Then the question becomes: ‘Which God is God?’ Is the God of the Bible the one and only true God? Is Allah God? How can we know and know that we know we’re right about this? Have you studied the Quran? Have you compared it with the Bible? If you were to search for the God of the Bible in a sincere life-long pursuit how would you know if you have found him, given the fact that he is invisible?
Jesus said, ‘Thy word is truth.’ (John 17:17). God must span time from before the beginning to the distant future. He must control all things, own all things and sustain all things, including you and me. If God is real, he can accurately predict the future and he must have left behind plenty of proof that he was there in the past.
After studying the Quran, at least the American translation since I don’t know Arabic, I must admit I was not impressed. I suggest you study it for yourself. It is not on par with the Holy Bible. Neither is any other ‘holy book’ in my humble opinion.
Now, if the Bible is truly the word of the one and only True God, let’s see on-the-ground proof. Go to YouTube® and in the search box type: the real Mount Sinai or Sodom and Gomorrah found.
Each one of these contributors has multiple videos showing Noah’s Ark, the Red Sea Crossing, Mount Sinai, the Golden Calf Altar, the Split Rock and other video evidence of the historical and verifiable evidence that the Holy Bible is actual and factual. Be brave enough to see this evidence and believe the truth.

73. If evolution were true, how did small creatures like butterflies and honey bees come with such features as an extraordinary sense of smell?
A. On the molecular level, many of the features of these creatures are still and probably always will be a mystery. Bumble Bees and Honey Bees should not be able to fly due to an excessive body weight-to-wing-lift-and-motion anomaly. Science cannot explain this. Evolution doesn’t come close to explaining this.
Then there’s their ability to find suitable mates. Given their multi-eyed compound eyes, how can they find their flowers, their mates, their pollen, their nectar, their host plants or their fellows? All these are mysteries. They think. How do they do that? They make choices which affect their lives and longevity. How do they do that?
Could evolution supply the information and power required to make all this happen? It cannot be proved scientifically. It cannot be replicated in the lab. It cannot be tested, verified nor disproved by all the modern technical equipment in the world because it is implanted in the minds of these tiny creatures. Evolution simply cannot account for this and neither can science.
There is a spirit component or essence to all life that cannot be quantified or falsified by science. The closer scientists look at God’s creatures, the more mysteries they uncover, which is to say, the less they discover actually know. They will never reach the bottom.

74. If evolution is really how we all got here, how did it provide for dignity, rights, free will and the desires we all have for self preservation?
A. Evolution cannot provide anything. Rights are given by one in authority who has the power to grant them. Your ‘rights’ all come from God. Men do not give rights. Governments to not give them; they are supposed to protect them.
Men and women, once given their rights, own them. They were given by someone Greater than themselves, or they would not have them. They are a gift, albeit possibly temporary, from our Maker. Dignity comes from realizing the fact that these rights are endowed, granted and unalienable.
You have Free Will because God gave it to you. You can make your own choices and decide for yourself. You have a mind of your own because God share what he enjoys with you. Your mind is similar to his, not some animals.
Our minds create new ideas, they think, they have language, can tune in to God’s own mind or Spirit; our minds elevate us far above any animal, enable us to learn, store and retrieve information and have few limits; our minds work for us, protect us and nourish us. They can be programmed and reprogrammed. They come ready to be ‘written on’ from the get go.
Self-preservation keeps us alive. It is basic to our survival. We need to survive. We need the One who gave us our minds and we innately desire to be like him and to be with him. Few things of mind come pre-programmed, but one is that we think about eternity.
This one is universal. We all think about it at some point. Maybe this, too, is a matter of self-preservation. We don’t want to die, especially permanently. Yet we practice death every day. We call it sleep. It is good for our minds. It rebuilds and refreshes them.
Evolution cannot do anything about anything because it is sheer fantasy. There must be a God. I think, therefore God is. If I exist, so does he who made me. That makes sense. God is not going anywhere just because people don’t want God to exist.

75. What does evolution have in common with Organized Religion?
A. Evolutionists will automatically say: ‘Nothing!’ But I beg to disagree. Religion is all about the riddance of guilt.
So-called Christianity absolves people of sin and its associated guilt by following certain do’s and don’ts, legalism, if you will. Some churches require parishioners to do penance or pay money to get their sins absolved. With evolution, the way to get rid of guilt is just to get rid of the god that makes you feel guilty. Just another form of religion, if you ask me.
Other forms of religion require self flagellation, self torture or the performance of certain rigorous rituals. This is why I lump all forms of religion together in a giant dump heap. I would take all the ‘gods’ people have concocted out of their own imaginations and rid the earth of them. The Bible actually predicts a day coming when ‘all the gods that did not create the heavens and the earth shall perish…’
Notice how the prophet puts it in Jeremiah 10:10-12: 10 'But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.
11 Thus shall you say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. 12 He has made the earth by his power, he has established the world by his wisdom, and has stretched out the heavens by his discretion.'
At that day, can you imagine anyone still clinging to evolution or religion in any form? Of course not! Who needs any of them at the time when God himself shall live here with us? No one! He will provide ample proof of who he is and all shall know him from the least to the greatest.
Evolution will be ridiculed and mocked as the silliest
religion of all for all time to come. It’s embarrassing. Otherwise intelligent adults believing in this imaginary theory as if it were the truth in some circle would be called neurosis.
