This book will explain for the everyday person and scientist the origins of dinosaurs, humans, the earth, the sun, the moon, stars, galaxies, ice ages, polar ice caps, deserts, layers of sedimentation, petrification, fossils, and vast oil reserves. In addition, this book explores the difference between evolution (macroevolution) and adaptation (microevolution) and the difference between evolution and creation. You will learn how dinosaurs became so large and why they are not visible today and what caused the dinosaurs to be extinct. We will cover such topics as whether it is probable for humans to live 900+ years of age and whether humans evolved from primates (monkeys)? Did dinosaurs and humans live together on the earth? How old is the earth? What is the origin of all living creatures? These questions and many more will be answered in this book.
No longer do you have to be without knowledge about the subject of origins. No longer when someone asks you about the subject of origins will you respond, “I don’t know.” No longer do you have to just believe what others tell you to believe regarding origins. You will know where life came from and the origin of life on earth.
Give this book a chance, whether you think evolution is truth, creation in seven days is truth, or creation over eons is truth. Regardless, give this book a chance. Don’t stop reading just because this book has views and deductions that are against the norm, against what you’ve been taught, or different than what you believe. I guarantee that this book will challenge your preconceived notions of the origins of life on earth and equip you with knowledge regarding the origin of life and the beginning of all things.
As with most legal contracts, there is a section in the agreement/contract that says, “If any portion of this contract is found to be invalid or non-enforceable, that does not invalidate the rest of the contract.” So too with this book. If any portion of this book is found to be invalid, that does not invalidate the entire book. And the remaining valid points remain valid. Any portion of this book that is deemed unenforceable does not cause the entire book to be unenforceable. And the remaining enforceable points in the book will remain enforceable.
The Premise of Origins
One of the major components of this book, is an explanation of how changes to Earth’s gravity, oxygen concentration, rotational velocity, temperature, and the loss of a canopy of salt water that surrounded our atmosphere have adversely affected all living creatures on the earth and the terrain of earth. The changes to gravity, oxygen concentration, temperature, and the canopy of salt water have resulted in a severe reduction in the length of life, the size of life forms, and in the earth having four seasons, polar ice caps, deserts, and more.
The Motivation for Origins
There were several motivating factors that caused me to write this book. The primary factor is that the reigning accepted hypothesis, evolution, is at odds with the Bible. Both cannot be correct since they make polar opposite statements on the beginning of life. Secondarily, there are too many people that have no idea what to think or believe regarding the origins of life and all things.
Origins is such an important topic because how people view the origins of life shapes their entire outlook on all faiths, hope, security, the source of truth, and the purpose for life. There are basically two views regarding the origins of life:
(a) Everything began and evolved by explainable natural processes in nature. For example, the Big Bang initiated all processes and laws, and all life forms evolved from a single-celled organism that spontaneously began from a primordial complex chemical mixture into the complexities of life we see today. This is called evolution.
(b) God created everything by natural processes with His supernatural decrees.
All of public academia, from elementary school age to graduate level education, teaches evolution. And almost all media intended for toddlers on up teaches evolution. This teaching is so ubiquitous that even 90% of seminary schools and most churches teach an old Earth timeline to coincide with the evolutionary model. Some churches say that evolution is truth, but God is behind it all. The overwhelming majority of people on earth say that the Bible requires too big of a leap of faith to believe that it’s 100% truth; it is just a good moral book.
The serious implications of the origins of life are striking. Start with the wrong premise, and all conclusions built on that premise could be in error. Start with the wrong foundation, and everything built from that is off line. If evolution is correct, then the Bible is not from God, but from men and filled with errors. If the Bible’s account of creation is correct, then evolution is error. And could be a doctrine of demons if it is wrong. There is no middle ground, since the two views are so opposite. There is no room for compromise. If one view is in error, then that wrong view needs to be scuttled. If the Bible is wrong, then it’s not a book from an all-powerful God; it’s a book from fallible humans. Frankly, it would need to be burned. But if the Bible is correct and all false doctrine is of the devil, then evolutionary teaching and doctrine need to be exposed and stopped.
Why does it have to be so cut and dry? Why can’t there be tolerance of both views? Why can’t there be room for both views? Because the Bible takes a very hard line and proclaims that there is no middle ground. Jesus said, “He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters” (Matthew 12:30). Therefore, there is a lot at stake at the very beginning of the origins of life because the Bible declares God cannot lie (Titus 1:2) and the Scriptures testify about Jesus (John 5:39), so if the Bible is in error, then God is a liar and the Bible is made up by man.
An honest scientist would say that evolution and the Big Bang are accepted hypotheses, but invariably when professors lecture, they say evolution is fact. The prevailing, leading, and accepted view is that evolution and the Big Bang are not just possible hypotheses that are further being explored as good theories: they are facts. Additionally, the Bible’s Genesis account of creation is not to be taken literally because it doesn’t coincide with science. The Bible is just a good moral book, just like any other work of man.
Are there holes in the evolutionary hypothesis? Is evolution fact? It is certainly taught as fact. If there are holes in the evolutionary model, there is too much ignorance amongst Christians to know them and too much ignorance about what the Bible teaches for them to defend the Bible. Most people don’t know what to think or believe regarding the origins of life. They merely accept whatever they are told. This bothers me for two reasons.
Reason No. 1: The Bible declares that God wrote the Bible through mankind, or as II Timothy 3:16 indicates, “All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching . . . so that the man [not gender specific] of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” Therefore, if there is one error, for example, in such things as the Genesis account of creation, then the whole Bible can’t be infallible and be written by God. It should be viewed simply as a good book along with any other good book. But if the Genesis account of creation is the truth, then indeed the Bible is the Word of God, and evolution and the singularity of the Big Bang represent the fulfillment of I Timothy 4:1 “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.”
Reason No. 2: II Timothy 4:1 says,
I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
Ignorance amongst Christians on the subject of origins is disobedience to the Word of God and is sinful. Christians are at war spiritually for the truth, and the word of God is the sword (Ephesians 6:12–17). To be ignorant of what the Bible says about the beginning is an act of willful negligence. To claim to be a Christian and accept evolution as truth and to believe the Bible to be in error is an act of spiritual treason. There is no neutral ground; Christ said you are either for me or against me.
Of those that believe in God, there are too many that just don’t have a clue about what happened in the beginning. And this certainly renders them catatonic when an opportunity comes for them to discuss the difference from the Genesis account of creation and evolution. Imagine how ineffective a Christian becomes at witnessing when they tell others to believe in Jesus and His Word, yet they themselves don’t even believe Jesus’ Word as truth. Why would anyone believe in a God of the Bible that doesn’t speak truth regarding the origins of life? They wouldn’t.
The battle for the beginning is extremely critical. And for this reason, Satan attempts to separate humans from the Word of God before tempting. Consider Adam and Eve, Satan said, “Indeed has God said,” and then he tempted them (Genesis 3). And after Jesus was baptized, anointed by the Holy Spirit, and heralded by the Father with, “This is My beloved Son,” then Satan attacked the Word of God by saying, “If You are the Son of God,” and then tempted Him (Matt 3:17– 4:9). Therefore, we may conclude that Satan understands the best way to tempt someone to sin, is to first attack the Word, separate people from the Word, then they are easy prey to lead into sin. And there is no better way to do this then to start with “In the beginning.” This is a military strategy of divide and conquer. We have seen the world reject God’s creation account, and accept man’s hypothesis of the beginning, and the exponential rise of sin as a result.
Let’s journey together through the sciences, logic, and the Bible to determine what is fact or fiction, what is truth or error, and what is from God or from man or demon.
