WHY I'M EVOLUTION FREE
111 ANSWERS FOR DARWINISTS
by Elbert Hardy
Questions and Answers 101 thru 111
101. Even if millions of people tried to convince me that the lie of evolution is true, would their viewpoint constitute truth?
A. A statement cannot be the truth and a lie at the same time, in the same sense, in the same way and to the same degree. That’s the Law of Non-contradiction. Truth is only truth if it’s true for all people in all ways and in all places at all times. Majority rule does no good here. So, why should I care if millions of lemmings jump off the cliff? I don’t have to. Neither do you. Is this same standard true for Christianity? Do I need to be a Christian just because my parents were? No. Does the fact that there are millions of Christians mean that Christianity is true? No. So why should I believe it is true? There are lots of reasons to believe it is true. But, the point is millions of people and their respective individual opinions do not constitute fact or truth. So what does? Jesus in his prayer recorded in John 17:17 said ‘Your word is truth.’ He was praying to his Father God. In his mind, God’s words are truth. Can Darwin and his followers convince me otherwise? No. Why not? Because there are the many Bible proof prophecies hidden in its text, for one thing. Some scholars have recounted more than 300 references or prophecies in the so-called ‘Old’ Testament that are fulfilled in Christ. Just Google ‘Old Testament prophecies fulfilled by Jesus’ and you will find 957,000 results. It’s not like this is anything new, but one of them calculated the odds of even 8 prophecies fulfilled by one person as being one chance in 1017 power. That is equivalent to covering the entire state of Texas with a 24” deep layer of silver dollars and then spray painting one of them red, burying it at random and then someone blindfolded picking it out from all the others on the first attempt. It’s not very likely. But there are three hundred of these prophecies, not just eight. This has to be the work of a Greater Mathematician that any human. Then there is the fact that there are millions of tons of physical evidence on the ground in the Middle East, which proves that the Bible is truth, otherwise it would simply not be there. Just Google ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’ and go to the YouTube ® videos and you can easily see the proof for yourself. Better yet, plan a trip to the Dead Sea and drive up and down the road on its western shore and look for odd formations that resemble cities. There are 90 degree angles, obvious streets, towers, ziggurats, sphinxes, arched doorways and windows all in ashes… the remains of the five cities God destroyed when he over threw the ‘cities of the plain’ as recorded in Genesis 19. May I suggest you read it for yourself? These are just 2 of my favorite proofs that the Bible is really the true word of God and I can rely on it. It’s a book about Jesus for he is the Creator. Notice Colossians 1: 12 ‘Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Jesus is unique. He is the ONLY Savior. No one else will do. We can and must trust him. He holds our tomorrow. That’s why I trust him. What about you?

Why did evolutionists feel the need to fake the ‘Icons of Evolution’?
A. The progression of apes to men, many paintings which appear in Biology textbooks, Haeckel’s Embryos and Darwin’s ‘Tree of Life’ do not represent reality by any stretch. They have been purposely faked, touched up or invented. The only limit is the imagination of the authors themselves.
Haeckel’s embryos have been scientifically exposed for more than 100 years, yet they are still found to this day in Biology Textbooks in all Universities and High Schools. What is worse is that they are presented as absolute, scientifically proved and accepted facts! This should be labeled for what it is: a fraud and a crime. Yet the bias against God and creationists is now so strong, these crimes are swept under the rug and even supported by publishers. Why? It seems to me this is not only unwise and unfair, but it deprives the student of much needed truth, further ‘dumbing down’ our education system. May I suggest the book ‘Icons of Evolution: Why much of what we teach about evolution is wrong’ by Jonathon Wells. We all should be adult about it and strive to give our children the best education possible. It is no wonder skeptics are the fastest growing faith-based group in America, according to the Barna Research Group. We are spoon-feeding it to our kids. God is now booted out and ridiculed in the classroom, to our shame. Now to answer the question of: ‘Why?’ Could it be because their case is so weak, they have to fabricate the evidence to support their case? Can we grasp the depth of the hypocrisy? They claim science is the only real source of truth, yet what they publish is anything but!
A careful study of actual photos of the embryos compared to Haeckel’s sketches which were at the time transferred to a woodcut for printing reveal enormous differences. This means the images are not even close to representing reality.
Yet we still find this tripe in the textbooks of today. Our kids consume it readily. What else can they do? They trust what’s in print and what their professors and teachers say. Of course they should trust them, to a degree; but they must prove trustworthy or be out of a job, if you ask me. I’m sure many of the teachers are sincere. They may never have actually seen the real evidence for themselves.
They are probably the result of what they themselves were taught in school. Then there is the accrediting establishment. They apparently get together and decide what will or will not be allowed to be taught. They choose the textbooks and the curriculums. What were they taught? Unfortunately for all students, they are evaluated on how well they regurgitate what is being spoon-fed to them. The teachers and evolutionary promoters claim they are teaching critical thinking… that is until the promoters are the ones being criticized.

Does the Bible mention that the special Gifts of God prove we have a Great Father God who loves us and gives us many blessings?
A. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17) There’s no denying it: life is full of good and wonderful things.
Atheists are some of the most unhappy, unthankful people I have seen. Why? I might have thought their ‘freedom from God’ would make them happy. But, I’m here to say they all have a reason, whether really valid or not, to resent or even hate God. Just look around you. There are so many blessings in your life, you could spend all your time just counting them and you would run out of time before you ran out of blessings and gifts you did not earn. That is a fact no one, no honest person at least, can deny.
Yet many if not all atheists think they have nothing that was given to them, except misery and hardship. God is a burden to them. Something has happened in their life that seems bad and they are angry with God about it. They hold a grudge against him. And I can sympathize with their plight. We all suffer; it’s just that some run from God and others run away. We all go through loss. I have lost my mom, my dad, grandparents and great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and my wife to a stroke. But I count it as part of life. It all makes me consider what life is really about: It is training for our future. What I mean is we are being prepared for a magnificent future with God. Please hear me out. Better days are coming. Jesus is alive and well and he will return to our planet to fix what’s wrong and set up a world government that will take over all others and rule all people in love. We humans are about to wreck our beloved planet, our only home. When all seems lost and we have reached the last straw, that’s when he will come to save or rescue mankind from himself. You see, we rejected him; he did not reject us. But in spite of our unfaithfulness, he still so loved his world that he came to destroy the devil’s work by dying on the cross in our place. We are the ones that brought death into his world. He is the one to bring life back from the brink of extinction. And that is exactly where we are headed according to Jesus in Matthew 24. But thank God, we do have a Savior who will come in time. I, too, believed what I read in my textbooks about evolution, but as I grew up I realized there has to be more than that in life. I wanted much more out of life, in fact, and I set out to prove to myself, one way or the other the truth about whether there really is a God or not.
These are my findings. God is there and I am so thankful. We have a future because of him. Thankfulness extinguishes covetousness on contact.

Why are mutations always the result of a LOSS of information and always detrimental, yet evolutionists claim they are the cause of speciation?
A. Evolution claims mutations are responsible for our existence. 'Speci-ation', according to evolution, is the result of ‘natural selection acting on random mutations. Variety in life forms, of which there are probably billions of different ones, according to evolution is the result of mutations.
But if that were true, life would have disintegrated itself to death long before reproduction could have occurred. Mutations never result in anything good or worth keeping. An eight legged, two headed calf does not live long. I actually saw this in a museum in Indiana. Mutations are bad. They do not add new information required for a different body plan. The ability to change from a lower life form into a higher one requires the ADDITION of NEW information. The real science PROVES it never works the other way around. Mutations never add any useful or helpful information.
Evolution says a long succession of mutations from amoeba to man is how we all got here. It is wishful thinking because provable science clearly demonstrates its impossibility. Give it up! It just doesn’t work that way in the real world. In my estimation, to believe that is neurosis: stupid behavior by non-stupid people. It is denial of reality and a completely bogus faith. I’ve seen texts say something like this: ‘A loosely hanging frayed scale became a feather. Thus, reptiles became into modern day birds….’ In other words, over the course of millions of years, all things are possible. NO. Millions of years DO NOT constitute the power to bring to life that which was non-living. Nor do millions of years have the power required to turn one life form into another. It’s just not real. Honest scientists do not buy into this lame theory as having the power to ‘mutate up’. There is no way that acquired characteristics or mutations or injuries add up to a new life form or body plan. This has never been observed and never will be because such things cannot affect the DNA, genes or chromosomes of the parent or individual.
Instead the loss of information that occurs with every mutation has harmful or fatal affects, none of which could result in a new or better body plan. Loss of eyes, loss or ears, two heads, and extra foot or malformed genitalia are samples of the results of mutations.
Some mutations are less dramatic and only result in a smaller ‘runt’ or weak eyes or something benign. But in all cases, loss of information never equals the gain of information that must occur to morph into a totally different kind of animal or a new body plan. To believe or support this idea seems nothing short of fabrication, pretense and fantasy, regardless of how well the progenitors of the theory of evolution cloak it in scientific-sounding jargon. All that does is mask the flaws in the idea and keep society stupefied and mystified with the unreasonable. And for this they want to be called ‘Brights’? YouTube ® suggestion: Just type in the search bar: ‘mutations are bad’ or mutations offer no new information’ 105. If evolution is true, why aren’t permutations or acquired injuries to the parent passed on to the child, as evolution demands?
A. The bottom line is this: Evolutionists have found a way to get big bucks to promote their agenda in their conceit and malicious arrogance. They don’t like the idea of a God interfering with their perverse lifestyle. They base their sinister ideology on mere conjecture with zero proof. They are good at disassembly of their opponents, but never ever answer any questions directly. That’s because they have no real answers. It’s all just rhetoric and devoid of solid scientific evidence. Their ideas don’t make any logical sense.
Can complex life arise on its own spontaneously without intelligence or information or the power to put it all together and breathe into it the breath of life? Additionally, theory seems to be more important than facts to these guru’s of nonsense. That’s not science. Science is in pursuit of truth, not in pursuit of a collection of useless theories that lead nowhere scientific. They are all lying idol worshippers with ‘nothing’ as their not-so-great-great ‘god’. They are deceitful workers of iniquity that have no future and no hope and they don’t even care, as long as they can make their big bucks destroying Christianity, throw truth to the ground and go on living in sin in the process. They make up their rules as they go along.
They are masters of side-stepping the issues and pride themselves on their ability to make the righteous look like the stupid ones. And admittedly, some Christians in their zeal to save others they do things they end up regretting later.
Nobody is perfect. But, we all should look in the mirror more often before we accuse others. We all do stupid things too. I speak for myself: I know… I’ve seen me do it. Little do they know that they walk over a fortune to pick up a penny. They leave off the best parts of life. They have little depth and they worship they know not what. We all should take a much more critical look at Darwinism and give it the boot.

A. Charles was once on the fast track to becoming a minister of Jesus Christ at one point in his life. What happened to change his mind? Research into his writings reveals the answer.
He could not fathom 1) how a good and loving God could allow human suffering, authorized the killing of children and babies, allow natural disasters and 2) burn people forever in the torture chamber we call hell. What he failed to find in the Holy Bible is the fact that God owns it all, your life and mine and every other life form. As owner, God has the right to do whatever he will with his own. He knows best.
Secondly, God will not take back one thing he has given mankind to steward: free will. Why do more than 30,000 humans die every day of starvation? Free will. Governments keep the food from the people to control them.
If he forced people to love him, that love would be fake. He wants the real thing from us, so he will not remove free choice.
People do stupid things by making poor choices, like choosing to dwell below sea level. Then they blame God when the levee breaks. Hell is quite another matter. This is one thing I agree with him on. Why would a loving and good God want to torture people for all time to come as punishment for 70 years of sinning? The answer is: he wouldn’t. Surprised? This controversial and blasphemous doctrine requires a lot of thought and research and should be studied diligently with an open mind. Consider this: Jesus paid the death penalty for the sins of all men past, present and future. Only the Creator and therefore Owner of mankind could do this because his life alone was worth more than the sum total of his creation.
The penalty for all sin was laid upon Jesus. He voluntarily laid his life down, that we might have permanent life. He accounted the bringing of ‘many sons to glory’ worth it. God the Father required death as the penalty, not eternal life in the torments of hell fire. So, we are left with two conclusions: Either Jesus paid the wrong penalty, thus disqualifying himself to be our Savior.
Or torture in hell for all eternity is not the legitamate penalty.
We can have Jesus as Savior and no such thing as eternal life in hell fire or we can have hell and no Savior. It’s as simple as that. For a more thorough study of the subject of HELL click here.

A. In a word, no one can… it didn’t come with a date tag and no human was there to see it come into being. Doctorate-level Scientists at the Institute for Creation Research on an exhaustive five-year study of the disintegration of uranium into lead proved the age of the earth. Though it my appear on first blush to be millions or maybe billions of years old, is actually around 6,000 years old as the Bible indicates.This team of specialists sliced multiple layers of several test samples of granite rocks to find traces of uranium and helium. They carefully measured and recorded their volume, radio-activity, rates of disintegration, etc.
If the earth really was billions or millions of years old, no helium would remain, because as uranium disintegrates, it dissipates its radioactive radiation. As this occurs, it picks up an electron to form helium. After all the helium expires, what’s left is lead.
Since the thicknesses of the granite specimens, their levels of radioactivity and their permeation or ‘leakage’ rates are quantifiable and measurable, the length of time required for this disintegration can be determined with a high degree of certainty, unlike radio-carbon dating methods. From this they can calculate the age of the rocks by when the radioactivity began. After five years of testing hundreds of samples, their findings are conclusive. The earth is around 6,000 years old, affirming the age of the creation of the earth as recorded in the Bible.
Further, if the earth and mankind is really millions of years old and mankind evolved say a million years ago, what kind of population figures would we see today? At 0.01 % the population would double ever 7,000 years.
This means there would have been about 143 'doublings' in population since the first man and woman. At this meager rate, by now the earth would contain about 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 people.
As it is today the population rate is much higher, so when we do the math, we can see quite readily that man must not have been around for millions of years or the population would have long ago exceeded the Earth’s ability to support them. The ‘Old Earth’ concept is just another in the long series of myths promulgated by those who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge the existence of the Great Creator God, in spite of millions of tons of ‘on-the-ground’ evidence. If we can find on the ground evidence that the Bible mentions in detail, then the Bible can be accepted as fact and as the word of this Great Creator. Here are a few examples of which there are many more: the split rock at Mount Horeb, the Pyramids which were probably built by the children of Israel during their 400 years of slavery in Egypt, the ashen remains of the 5 cities of the plain which God destroyed with fire and brimstone, the real Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia (as the Bible says).
Many accouterments which are given in the book of Exodus, Golgotha where our Lord was crucified and the Garden tomb where Jesus’ body was most likely placed.
These are all still there and you could go to the Middle East and touch them with your own hands. Yet the evolutionist claims there is not a shred of evidence that proves God’s existence. There is none so blind as he who will not see!

How did a sense of humor evolve?A. Humor is uniquely human. Animals do not experience humor. They cannot make jokes. They do not have the ability to put together the trick elements, timing or unexpected outcomes that equal the surprise inside the joke, whether it is being told to them or by them. They just don’t have what it takes. They don’t laugh. Among the dwellers of Planet Earth, only humans can do this. One might think that if we and the entire animal kingdom evolved from inert matter, chemicals and electricity or something like that, that all living things would have the ability to communicate through speech and have the gift of humor.
But no, only humans have it and it comes in varying degrees, some have more others less of the ability to make or receive humor. Why? Could it be we humans have the gift of humor that was given to us by a Great God who has the sense of humor to give?
Could evolution really explain this marvelous gift? No, it could not in my view. How could it explain the mystery of why it is not found in any animal? Evolution has no power to explain this phenomenon. It is not explained by scientific inquiry. Humor has zero survival value, zero calories and zero nutritional value. Yet it triggers beneficial hormones and pheromones which tend toward health in human beings.
It improves our ability to control our attitudes, moods and emotions. It makes us feel better. It even aids our ability to sleep. Laughter reportedly has the power to cure certain types of cancer. Humor has been given by the Creator as a unique gift. Even God laughs and we are his offspring as is clearly stated in this passage in Acts 17:27 ‘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: 31 Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance unto all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.’ Here’s a few scriptures that refer to God laughing: Notice Psalms 2:4: ‘He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision’; Psalms 37:11-13: ‘But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes upon him with his teeth. 13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he sees that his day is coming.’ Psalms 59:8: ‘But you, O LORD, shall laugh at them; You shall have all the heathen in derision.’ and Proverbs 1:26: ‘I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes;’ Yes, God laughs and he also mocks unbelievers. Evolutionists should consider the fact that if God does exist, he would be smart enough to figure out that some people would refuse to believe in him. He knew they would come. Apparently, evolutionists do not read the Bible because if they did they would find places like Isaiah 41:21:
‘Produce your cause, says the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, says the King of Jacob. 22 Let them bring them forth, and show us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
23 Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods: yea, do good or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together. 24 Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of naught: an abomination is he that chooses you.’ Evolutionists can laugh all they want at God, but he who laughs last laughs best. Will you be laughing in the resurrection when you face God? If evolution was true, all living creatures should be able to laugh, but what do we see? No animal really laughs. Evolution again has no explanation for this.
Everyone loves to laugh. We all enjoy it and we seek it where ever we can find it. Evolutionists laugh at Christians and all that would live a Godly life. But their day is coming when they can no longer laugh.
I hope you skeptics out there can learn to laugh at the right things like evolutionism itself. It really is silly when you think about it: all life suddenly burst on the scene in the Cambrian Explosion undirected by itself and it took millions of years to do it. Now that is just silly. It has no clothes and no legs to stand on. What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef! Pa-rum-bum… I’ve told you what I think. I’ve told you what the Bible says. Now, the question remains: what will you think? YouTube ® suggestion: Just type in the search bar: ‘humor proves God’ or ‘what was humor before it evolved? 109. Why is mankind so arrogant as to think he doesn’t need God, can solve his own problems and survive without a God and Father to intervene?
A. To answer this, let’s refer to the Bible. In the book of James, chapter one, starting in verse eleven: 11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the grass, and the flower thereof falls, and the grace of the fashion of it perishes: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
12 Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.’ It seems very arrogant for a man to thumb his nose at the God who holds his life and breath and every heartbeat in his hands. He’s following where he gets duped to go, not following good sense and logical reason. He gets drawn away and enticed by other things entering in and choking off the good and he cannot bear good fruit but only bad.Notice the words of Jesus in John 10:1: ‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that enters not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But he that enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter opens; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. 4 And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. 6 This parable spoke Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spoke unto them. 7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. 12 But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep. 13 The hireling flees, because he is a hireling, and cares not for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knows me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 17 Therefore my Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18 No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. 19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. 20 And many of them said, ‘He has a devil, and is mad; why listen to him? 21 Others said, ‘These are not the words of him that has a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?’ And again in the parable of the Sower found in Mark 4 we read: ‘2 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, 3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: 4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: 6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. 8 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty and some sixty and some a hundred. 9 And he said unto them, He that has ears to hear, let him hear. 10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable. 11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. 13 And he said unto them ‘Do you not understand this parable? And how then will you know all parables? 14 The sower sows the word. 15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown, but when they have heard, Satan comes immediately, and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.
16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; 17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution arises for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.
18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, 19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.’ Then in John 14: 6 ‘Jesus said unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ Those who reject Jesus will get what they want: no future. This life is short. Why take it for granted?
Sometime along the timeline of your life, we all will face death. We can’t get another life on our own. This is probably your only shot, at least until the resurrection. Make it a good one.
Don’t waste your life on the evolution track. Let go of your anger against God. Surrender to his will. He loves us and wants only our good.
He has our best interests at heart. He alone has the power to change you into another type of person. His Spirit will lead and guide you if you let him. All you have to do is ask. It’s not that hard.
In fact it’s so easy a child can do it. Let him into your lie. You will never regret it, even if some Christian hurts you. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. The main reason people do not seek God or want him in their life is because deep inside they like their sin better than their own future.
They know they probably won’t die from it today, so they don’t let themselves care. Death is outrunning us and will one day overtake us. Choose wisely. Choose life.

Can mankind survive this life?A. This is the plight of the evolutionist: He insists there is no God so he can avoid doing what would please him. He’d rather please himself. He won’t let anyone tell him what to do. He’s like a wild stallion.
He ranges ‘free’ and is totally useless to anyone. In fact, he has made himself a nuisance to local ranchers. Wild stallions break down good fences and threaten the good mares that are already broken and who are now useful in many ways. They can be ridden for pleasure. They can pull a cart, wagon or plow. They can be raced or used for travel in a variety of ways. They enjoy the shelter, the good and steady supply of food their Master provides. From him they get the love, attention, grooming and praise he gives them every day.
The wild stallion must find his own food, he may starve to death alone and he receives no shelter, love or praise, but only gets cursed at by local ranchers. He’s always neglected and in trouble. He has no future. That is what is in store for the evolutionist, atheist or anti-theist. For him, there is no afterlife. His work on earth was more of a hindrance to personal growth and well being than a help. He chose poorly and he comes to his end all too soon and he fades into oblivion forever. Is that what they call ‘bright’? Only the fool has said in his heart: ‘There is no God!’ How foolish it is to waste one’s life. If he were directly threatened at gun point: ‘Your car or your life!’ he would have given it on the spot, to save his life. But because he loved his rebellious and hostile-to-God attitude and lifestyle, he now will loose his life for all time. He chose poorly! Evolutionists wax eloquent in a vain attempt to sound authoritative, while grossly lacking good judgment and common sense. They are experts in the vulgar art of disassembly of logical and verifiable argument, all the while claiming expertise in their field of science. ‘Doctor’ or not, they should be more careful.
What they put out is tripe, not science. Their degrees are worth nothing if they don’t even know the meaning and purpose for life itself.
Like President Reagan said, ‘It’s not that they don’t know anything; it’s that they know so much that isn’t so!’Be honest with yourself. ‘Search your feelings…’ If after all this you still insist on rejecting the One who came and shed his life’s blood that you might have life, ask yourself why. Why do this to yourself, face the Judgment and die permanently when you could live? Admittedly, there are many things wrong at church. Agreed. Some of these are backward traditions, like the Heaven and Hell dogmas of by-gone eras that need to be addressed and fixed. They are as stupid as the doctrine of evolution being the ‘Decent of Man’. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water! At least get to know whom you are rejecting! Really get to know Jesus and then if you want to reject him, you at least will know you gave him a fair chance. But be honest about it and let your mind be opened to knowing him fully without pre-judging.
Let go of everything you’ve been taught, and listen to what Jesus said. Look for the truth and you will find a freedom and peace you never imagined possible.

Can evolution predict what’s coming down the pike at me or provide for my future or tell me what will happen to me when I die? What is the purpose of life according to evolution?
A. No. Evolution has no clue about any of these things because if there is no God, there is no purpose in life, no future after death and since there is no afterlife to look forward to, nothing will happen to me after I die… I simply will rot away, oblivious to all that is going on in the world of the living. My question is then, what value can I find in evolution? The answer is nothing. Evolutionary proponents claim this adherence to the theory as the explanation of the origins of all living things is liberation. To them it is liberation from the moral constraints that a moral God had held them under or would hold them under, if they would believe.
They see God as this mean ogre looking over their shoulder with his disapproving gaze on everything they want and long to do. I admire their independent spirit to a degree and to that degree I agree with them. Jesus said ‘He that falls upon this Rock shall be broken; but upon whom this Rock shall fall, it shall grind him to powder. (See Matthew 21:44 and Luke 20:18) Consider a wild horse. He is free to do whatever he wants, with whoever he wants, to whoever he wants and whenever he wants. But to the farmer or rancher who sees him, he is useless and nothing but a curse to have to deal with.
The rancher may undertake the task of catching and taming the beast, though it will take a lot of work and could be dangerous to life and limb. If he did tame him, he may have a good breeding stallion or work horse. If he is allowed to persist untamed, he will only antagonize his mares, tear down his fences and cause untold grief. Something must be done. He may decide the best choice is just to deal with it with a 25 cent bullet. My point is that unless or until the independent wild spirit is broken off this magnificent steed, it is more trouble than it is worth. So it is when there is no purpose in life. What’s the point of living? We were built to need God. We were designed to need to be loved and cared for. We were made to require a purpose and a reason for living. Evolution cannot give that to anyone. Instead of liberating a person, it actually restricts him. It keeps him away from his purpose and from fulfilling it. It blocks security and peace of mind from coming into a person. It removes meaning and significance from life.
If we just ‘evolved into being’ there really is no significance or meaning in anything we try to do. Life is meaningless and a trivial vain pursuit, chasing after the wind and catching nothing but trouble, pain and despair. Surely, there is nothing more contrary to the human spirit than that. Is that what you want? Not me! But to answer the second question, ‘What is the purpose of life according to evolution?’ there isn’t any. It takes away life rather than improving it. No thanks. God gives me life, liberty and the freedom to pursue happiness, knowing I have a magnificent future ahead in a real on-the-ground Kingdom, helping people find meaning and purpose and fulfillment in life and thus giving them everything they need.
That is God’s plan for me and, whether you acknowledge him or not, for you to. Why not make yourself useful? YouTube ® suggestion: Just type in the search bar: ‘life after death?’ ‘meaning of life’ ‘what’s my purpose?’ Conclusion I have more reasons I believe in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I will keep writing them as long as God gives me life. Just look around at the things that are made. Every life form has a story peculiar to itself. Study anatomy.
It’s fascinating the intricacy and interplay of systems, to say the least. Did each system evolve separately and then somehow self-assemble into the unit we know as the human body? Of course not. They all had to come online in the first human body an instant or it would have died long before it could ‘come together’. Let’s use the right logic. We didn’t get here ‘on the backs of crystals’. Let’s be honest about this. If you are a skeptic or an atheist, the reason may be that you were once a Christian but gave it up because of some stupid shenanigan pulled by the church or an individual. We’re all only fallible humans.
We all blow it from time to time and we all make mistakes. I’ve made plenty of my own, having broken each of the Ten Commandments in one form or another. I’ve hurt people, I’ve lied… you name it. But I’m in the process of repenting of my sins along the way. The journey is not over. But, if you are like me, you too, are fed up with them, that is, fed up with religion in general. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water. Religion is man’s attempt to absolve himself from his guilt feelings by creating a god in his own image; that way he can manipulate and manage this god to get what he thinks he wants.
Real Christianity is very different because it is God reaching into our world to help us and save us from ourselves and our guilt feelings. Jesus is the Administrator of the love of God. Jesus is real, he’s alive and he’s returning. Do you really want to meet him on adverse terms? He’s the one who holds your life in his hands. He’s your judge not me. But I do care about you, though we’ve not met yet. Someday we may meet.
I look forward to that. If you were not a thinking caring human being, you would not be reading this. You have worth. You have value. You were built for a magnificent future and permanent life doing great things.
In my view, we can forget about the traditional ‘view’ of heaven where we retire in the clouds wearing our white robes & haloes and forever we’d be wishing we would have brought a magazine. (Thanks Gary Larson.) Moreover, we can forget about the traditional ‘view’ of an ever-burning hell where people go to get consciously tortured for all eternity. Instead, Jesus warned us whom we shall fear and why we should fear him in Luke 12:5: ‘But I will forewarn you whom you shall fear: Fear him which after he has killed has power to cast into the grave. Yes, I say unto you, fear him.’
(The word ‘grave’ is from the Gk. Geenna or Ghenna) This is also a reference to the ‘second death’ mentioned four times in the book of Revelation (Revelation 2:11, 20:6, 20:14 & 21:8).
So, in other words, God resurrects them after he has killed or allowed them to die the first time. This is a resurrection to judgment, where Jesus condemns them to the death penalty and kills them permanently with no consciousness afterwards (has power to cast them into the grave). Take a look at Psalm 146:3-10 with me: ‘3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His breath goes forth, he returns to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: 6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keeps truth for ever: 7 Which executes judgment for the oppressed: which gives food to the hungry.
The LORD looses the prisoners: 8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind: the LORD raises them that are bowed down: the LORD loves the righteous: 9 The LORD preserves the strangers; he relieves the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turns upside down. 10 The LORD shall reign forever, even your God, O Zion, unto all generations…’ In my view, we can forget the idea of an ‘immortal soul’ that lives consciously on after we die. Jesus, Paul the Apostle, nor any other biblical writer mentions it. We humans made it up to accommodate the scary hell doctrine as a method of control and money extortion. Let’s don’t go beyond what the scriptures actually say. Many atheists and former Christians are clearer about this than are churchgoers, seems to me. But getting back to this ‘second death’ judgment, this is when and where God’s final and permanent judgment falls on the incorrigible because they insist on dying rather than living under God. So God grants them their wish.
Even their memory will be forgotten and they will be no more. (See Psalm 109:15, Proverbs 10:7, Ecclesiastes 9:5, Isaiah 26:14) Also notice Obadiah verse 15-16: 15 ‘For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head.
16 For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yes, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.’ That doesn’t even remotely sound like they are burning in conscious torment to me. In Jeremiah 51:36-39 and 57-58 we read: 36 ‘Therefore thus says the LORD; ‘Behold, I will plead your cause, and take vengeance for you; and I will dry up her sea, and make her springs dry. 37 And Babylon shall become heaps, a dwelling place for dragons, an astonishment, and an hissing, without an inhabitant.
38 They shall roar together like lions: they shall yell as lions' whelps. 39 In their heat I will make their feasts, and I will make them drunken, that they may rejoice, and sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, says the LORD.’ VERSE 57 ‘And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, says the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts. 58 Thus says the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labor in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.’ Most Christians have never seen these verses, ignored them or did not recognize them as meaningful. But the impact of those words will likely adversely affect you and all that you know and love. I will try to be brief but explain what these words might mean to you. To me, we should never turn a blind eye to anything in scripture. The Holy Bible IS our Book of Life, the only real authority to live by. Theologians should know the scriptures, trust them over people and use the scriptures rightly, believing what they say, not what men say about them. This is the truth we can trust, rather than the doctrines of men. It reminds me of the words of Jesus himself when he told the scribes and Pharisees in Matthew 15:6b-9: ‘Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
7 You hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, 8 ‘This people draws near unto me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.’ You may well ask: ‘Do you mean to say God can kill me and never raise me back from the dead?’ My answer, contrary to popular belief is: yes, that’s the way it adds up, if you ask me. It’s permanent, perpetual unconsciousness according to Jeremiah 51:39 & 57. Trust the Bible. It is the word of God.
Don’t believe me. Refuse to put your trust in any mans’ word. Believe only what you see in the Bible. Do your own research. Get to the bottom of things. Religion doesn’t cut it. True Christianity is the only reality, to me. I realize this is not traditional, but then, neither was Jesus. What is written is what we should go by; not traditions of men. Beware of the self-centered money motive.
But here’s the thing: We are all living in perilous times, everybody know that. Evolution denies reality in that it blocks itself from knowing what is coming on the Earth we all live on.
We can’t get away. There is no ‘place of safety’ where we can perpetuate our lives. You will never find an evolutionist talk about the future or prophecy. So they block themselves away from the truth about what is coming right at us. I say this not to scare you but to prepare you. Let me see if I can be as brief as possible and still let you in on a gigantic biblical truth that no one seems willing to speak of. Iraq will become the world’s number one oil producer. (Revelation 18:3, 9; Daniel 11:2, 5) All OPEC and/or Islamic countries will make a ‘King of the South’.
He may become the richest man on earth and have his home base in Iraq, Iran or Saudi Arabia. It might even be Mecca, Medina or even the town of Babylon, Iraq a city of about 1.7 million at the time of this writing. Some scholars suggest Aleppo, Turkey. Time will tell.
Keep in mind that the Shiites and the Sunnis don't get along. This could turn into a nasty civil war, which may escalate into WW3.The biggest problem in the world today, lies virtually unspoken. Everyone is so busy living life and trying to make ends meet, they ignore the clear teaching in their own Bibles. This mistake could cost you or me our lives.
In short, it’s about the oil fields in the Middle East. What we as the human race are hell bent to do with it, is to fight over it, resulting in a nuclear exchange which will explode the oil fields into a massive bunch of catastrophic and tragic oil fires.
These will burn like blast furnaces at thousands of degrees Fahrenheit and cannot be put out, though all the armies of the world will try. The heat will kill millions. The smoke will darken the skies around the entire globe. Weather will cease. Imagine no rain, no drinking water, no crops, no food and no sunlight! People will scavenge and kill for food. Are you prepared?
Most people are so oblivious they are living very precariously. Survival is the name of the game, but we cannot save ourselves.
No garden, no stockpile of food and water, no survival tactics will save you. We all need more than this. We need a real Savior.
Why not give your allegiance to the only One who can do something about it? That would be none other than Jesus. He is the Maker of the planet and all that is in it or on it.
He’ll know how to fix what we mess up, regardless of how badly we do it. And we most certainly will wreck the entire planet. He owns it all and he won’t let us destroy all life on it, though we will most certainly bring it to the brink of extinction, if you ask me. There is no time to waste. It’s time to get serious about life. You have value and meaning. There is a great purpose for your life.
Let me be a bit candid. It took me nearly 50 years to finally figure out the best lesson of life I’ve ever learned. That is that I do have a purpose. It’s that I have a calling on my life to work for God.
He’s the ideal Employer, for he cares more for me than I do. This calling is the ultimate adventure and totally ‘first cutting’ quality. I want to share the thrill I feel more deeply each and every day. With him I feel at home and totally safe and secure. With him I know I can trust what he says. I may not know everything there is to know about God, but I know enough to trust him. I have seen millions of tons of evidence God that he real and his word is true.
I know what peace of mind is and I have it because of him. I’ve learned how to be happy and even contented to a degree in spite of very difficult and adverse circumstances. I had no idea that I could influence and help so many people, due to his providence. There is no better feeling than working for God. Time flies by. It has nothing to do with money. And what’s more is the realization that working for God will have no end.
Even if I lose my life, there will be a resurrection and the next thing I know I will meet Jesus in person and become part of his family and kingdom, and with his direction, start doing great things for people for all time to come. That’s worth seeking to me. That gives my life meaning and purpose and direction, like nothing else can. So if evolution is wrong and the Bible is right, then life has meaning. God has a great plan for our lives. I know you’ve probably heard that before, yet no one could explain what it means. What does God want out of life?
Jesus answers that it is ‘your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.’ (See Luke 12:32) That is when Jesus steps back into history as our King, reigning from Jerusalem with his saints. He wants us to share real, true life… permanent life with him. He’s the only One who has it to give. All world religions will disappear off the earth at that time. (See Jeremiah 10:11) I could point to many scriptures that seem to indicate mankind will blow it big time. You will probably not hear this in church or on TV. According to my research, the Bible seems to indicate that governments will realign themselves in Europe and Northern Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
As you no doubt know, a revolution is happening and will continue for some time in the Middle East. Regimes are toppling like dominoes. Europe is ailing and I believe will finally coalesce into a more central collective governmental system, under a single leader. They are undergoing growing pains. The Euro may not be the final monetary currency in the end. I don’t think it’s too early to predict that a European leader will emerge to head up the whole thing. The same holds true for the Islamic countries on the southern and eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
A ‘King of the North and a King of the South’ will take center stage and try to form an alliance between the emergent Europe and the emergent United Arab Republics or whatever they will call themselves in the end. Even their religions and religious leaders will try to unite into one universal religion, in my view. Perhaps they will call it ‘Catholislam’ or ‘Chrislam’. Maybe the ‘Pope’ and the ‘Grand Mufti’ will become blood brothers; who knows? You have to admit it would be a very odd mix, kind of like oil and water or iron and clay. The King of the South will likely be headquartered in Babylon (an Iraqi city of about 1.7 million people according to the 2009 census estimate posted on the Internet). This king will probably become far richer than any other who has ever lived, as he will preside over the world’s greatest reserve of crude oil. All nations will be buying oil & oil products from him.
This King of the South will ‘push at’ the King of the North and it will lead to the world’s most tragic war. But it’s not over ‘til it’s over… It is my belief, based on Isaiah 51:16, 40:22, 65: 17, 66:22, Matthew 13:52, 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 3:12 and 21:1-22:21 that there is a better day coming. Mankind will not completely go extinct. Jesus will intervene and save mankind from himself. Then he will set about the business of cleaning up the tragic mess we have made of his planet.
He will set up a world ruling government that shall never be destroyed. (Daniel 2:44 and Revelation 20:4) His followers (saints) will be right there with him ruling and serving the people.
The benefits of Jesus’ rule will be lasting peace and joy the world has never experienced. The remarkable peace and agrarian lifestyle of those days will pale into insignificance the dark days that will surely come, according to my take on these scriptures. Notice Isaiah 35: 4-10: ‘Say to them that are of a fearful heart, ‘Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with recompense; he will come and save you.’ 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. 7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes. 8 And a highway shall be there, and a way and it shall be called ‘The Way of Holiness’; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up there on, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.’ Realistically, who would not want that? This is the world to come after the return of Jesus Christ. Obviously it will be quite different from the world we live in today. To put it in the words of Jesus, ‘…You shall see greater things than these.’ Look for them in the pages of your own Bible. Don’t take my word for it, or any man’s for that matter. The Bible is my only authority and I hope it can be yours as well. Somewhere on the timeline of your life, you will meet Jesus and you will have no more doubt about him existing. The question is: ‘Will you be ready?’ I know I don’t know you, but I do care about you and what will happen in your time.
The Bible has a lot to say about your future. Darwin says nothing about it. Evolution offers no future whatsoever. When you die, that’s it; you die and it’s over. There is no resurrection, no afterlife and no future. With evolution, your life is of little value and you live a purposeless, useless and meaningless existence. Is that all you want out of life? Not me. There has to be more. A new earth and a new heaven where righteousness dwells, is on its way. If it is to dwell in the heavens, there will have to be people there. The universe was meant to be inhabited. (See Isaiah 45:18) With God, you have a reason for living. What might that be? Let’s face facts. The life we all live is only temporary and it is short.
We all have a disease that is 100% fatal. This is only an introduction to life. Real life is permanent. That’s why we are here: to learn how to live. We are to acquire the attributes of the Great God so that we are ready for permanent life. How do we do this? Read, study and learn your Bible. God had it all written down for us in his Bible. Don’t believe me. Believe what you read in your Bible. See you on the Rock!
