Lesson 1

What Most People Think
Evolution is Science
Creation is Religion.
4
Evolution
  • Initial Disorganization withlater increase in
    complexityand unlimited diversification
  • Not just change, but change in thedirection of
    increasing complexity.

Evolutionary TreeAll life came from one simple
cell
5
Creation
  • Initial Complexity withlater deterioration
    anddiversification within limits

Creationist Forest All life came from multiple
complex ancestors.

2 General Models of Evolution
Materialistic(Atheistic)Evolution Everything
evolved by purely natural processes
TheisticEvolution God used evolution as His
method of creating
2 Specific Models AboutEvolution of Living Things
Neo-DarwinismEvolution occurredslowly and
gradually. Many have abandoned this belief
because of the fossil evidence.
Punctuated EquilibriaEvolution occurred in
sudden jumps. The biological evidence against
this belief is overwhelming.
7
3 Varieties of Creation
Recent Rapid Creation(perhaps within the last
10,000 years) The Gap Theory(creation and ruin
in the distant past, recent re-creation) Progres
sive Creation of the Day-Age Theory(creation
spread out over billions of years really a
theistic version of Punctuated Equilibria
evolution)

The Scientific Method
  • Define the problem. What do you want to
    know?(e.g. Does music affect how plants grow?)
  • Gather information on the subject.
  • Formulate a hypothesis.
  • Devise a way to test the hypothesis.
  • Observe the results of your test.
  • Report the results so others can repeat the test.

What We Actually Find.
a bunch of jumbled up bone fragments
that we put together
and make up stories about!
12
Things We Can Test Scientifically
  • Overall trends and tendencies in nature.
  • Observable processes.
  • Processes and events that left direct evidence.

Things We Cant
  • The identity or motivation of whoever or whatever
    brought the universe into existence.
  • Morality and meaning.
  • Specific details such as the names of the first
    humans, what they wore, what they liked to eat,
    etc.

Characteristics of God
  • Only seen by what He does INVISIBLE.
  • Established natural laws, so is not subject to
    those laws SUPERNATURAL.
  • Preceded the universe ETERNAL.
  • Influence extends throughout the universe
    OMNIPRESENT.
  • Directly or indirectly responsible for everything
    that has ever happened OMNIPOTENT.
  • Nobody made Him SELF-EXISTENT.

15
Characteristics of Random Chance
  • Only seen by what it does INVISIBLE.
  • Established natural laws, so is not subject to
    those laws SUPERNATURAL.
  • Preceded the universe ETERNAL.
  • Influence extends throughout the universe
    OMNIPRESENT.
  • Directly or indirectly responsible for everything
    that has ever happened OMNIPOTENT.
  • Nobody made it SELF-EXISTENT.

16
How Can I Be Sure God Exists?
  • Romans Chapter 1
  • For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven
    against allungodliness and unrighteousness of
    men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness
  • Because that which may be known of God is
    manifest in them for God hath shewed it unto
    them.
  • For the invisible things of him from the creation
    of the world are clearly seen, being understood
    by the things that are made, even His eternal
    power and Godhead so that they are without
    excuse
  • Because that, when they knew God, they glorified
    him not as God, neither were thankful but
    became vain in their imaginations, and their
    foolish heart was darkened.
  • Professing themselves to be wise, they became
    fools,
  • And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God
    into an image made like to corruptible man, and
    to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping
    things.

17
God or Random Chance?
The Bible says that God loves you so much that
He gave His only Son to die for your
sins. Which step of faith makes more
sense?
  • If you believe in the God of the Bible, and you
    areright, you can spend eternity in Heaven with
    Him.
  • If you are wrong, you will never know it.
  • If you believe in Random Chance, and you are
    right, nothing matters anyway.
  • If youre wrong, you are headed for an eternal
    hell.
