The Bible was long accepted as a true and reliable account of our origins. But then Darwin's theory of evolution took the world by storm, with predictable and tragic consequences—proof that what we believe does matter.
Curiously enough, our existence as human beings is one of the best arguments against it. According to evolutionary theory, the traits that offer the greatest advantage for survival are passed from generation to generation. Yet human reproduction itself argues powerfully against this fundamental premise of evolution.
If human beings are the pinnacle of the evolutionary process, how is it that we have the disadvantage of requiring a member of the opposite sex to reproduce, when lower forms of life--such as bacteria, viruses and protozoa--are sexless and far more prolific? If they can reproduce by far simpler methods, why can't we? If evolution is true, what went wrong?
And how did a reproductive system evolve, considering its failure would put an immediate end to its evolutionary process?
If God created man, we have no right to ignore Him. If man created God, we can easily ignore Him. What man has made he can do away with. In that case we are free to act as though God doesn't exist, free to dismiss the Bible, free to determine for ourselves what is right and wrong and how we will choose to live.
In this booklet we examine the foundational premises of evolution. We consider the evidence evolutionists cite to support the theory. Perhaps most important, we look at the scientific facts evolutionists don't discuss in public--for reasons that will become clear.
You can know whether evolution is true. Take the time to examine the evidence carefully.
What you believe does matter.
Although it's rarely publicised, the evidence against evolution is mounting with accumulating scientific discoveries. What societal and cultural factors led to such widespread acceptance of Darwin's theory in the first place?
Darwin staked the credibility of his theory on discoveries he was sure would be found in the fossil record. After a century and a half of exploration and discoveries, does that record support his theory or contradict it?
A fundamental premise of Darwinian evolution is the belief in natural selection driving change in species. Now, after decades of detailed study of genetics, DNA and the cell, what does the scientific evidence reveal to us?
One relatively simple process necessary for animal life is the ability for blood to clot to seal a wound and prevent an injured animal (or person) from bleeding to death.
A serious obstacle to evolutionary theory is the interdependent relationships between living things, called symbiosis, in which completely different forms of life depend on each other to exist.
Darwin wrote that his theory would break down if it could be shown that animals had complex features that could not have developed by many gradual slight modifications. We look at creature features that kill the theory.
Many people dismiss the biblical account of creation, thinking it contradicts scientific discoveries made in recent centuries. But is that really the case?
What lies ahead as we enter the 2020s? Major changes are taking place in the nation and around the world. What do they mean? Where are these trends taking us? And most importantly, what do they mean for you and will you be ready? You won’t find answers to these questions in the normal news sources, but you will in the pages of your Bible. In this issue of Beyond Today magazine, we look at these key questions and answers.
