We hope that in this thesis, the criteria to commit evolution as a logical theory or creation can be disproved through the application of biblical principles, scripture and common truth. There is a great gap between truth and the comprehension of a last common ancestor that has shaped our way in which we conceive evolution to be existent.
Firstly, we have to address the matter of Darwin’s thought and reasoning behind his scientific evaluations, he had a difficult life and lost one of his children which could constitute reasoning behind why he would think that the God of the bible failed him, in an age that was considered that of reason and where Christianity was prevalent within society at the time. We see at the beginning of Genesis, that only man was created initially and this man known as Adam, who also means humanity was lonely and so a woman was created from this man. We see this also happen in fish, where parrotfish were initially created as male and due to environmental circumstances can be converted into the female species of its kind. This shows how nature adapts and changes under a biblical nature. We also see in Genesis that Gen 1:12 – plants reproduce within their own seed and own kind, not own ancestry. These are of a lower state of consciousness than human beings but also display how nature doesn’t just adapt and evolve through natural selection but the definition of natural selection is unsound and untrue. In Gen 1:21 – God created animals after their kind, reproduce within their own kind and not evolution, which is further evidence that it is naturally unsound for creation to change apart from adaptation. There is evidence to state that there are levels of consciousness and if time was to suggest that our existent timeline was a 12-hour clock, only 90 seconds in modern theory suggests of our existence which is false and flawed. Last Common Ancestor and the transitional fossil. It is often used in popular science and the media for any new transitional form. The term originated to describe the hypothetical intermediate form in the evolutionary series of anthropoid ancestors to anatomically modern humans. Many Missing links play a role between humankind and apes, even if we are 98% similar to chimpanzees in our genetic structure.
Secondly, we have to evaluate the role that last common ancestry plays within society wherein we develop this relationship between man and beast, precisely ape. We may share common ground and similar genetic structure but we are in no way a relative to apes as apes are in no way a relative to us. Suggesting this is unsound as there are many barriers between this so-called common ancestry and what one would define as a missing link. This link although researched so deeply has been found yet to come to fruition. Suggesting that there was a separation of tribes; it is suggested, Europe had been the exclusive playground of Neanderthals. Homo sapiens, meanwhile, had left Africa, marched across Arabia into East and South-East Asia, sailed to Australia. One group was on its way to Siberia, the Bering Strait and the promise of a New World. But what of Europe? (https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22730282-900-the-three-ancestral-tribes-that-founded-western-civilisation/) Gen 1:12 – plants reproduce within own seed and own kind, not own ancestry
The common belief that two tribes separated and one advanced due to their circumstances is completely flawed and untrue, it doesn’t make any logical sense.
This is to say that we are a young civilisation; Human evolution is the lengthy process of change by which people originated from apelike ancestors. Scientific evidence shows that the physical and behavioural traits shared by all people originated from apelike ancestors and evolved over a period of approximately six million years. (https://humanorigins.si.edu/education/introduction-human-evolution) The Lambda-CDM concordance model describes the evolution of the universe from a very uniform, hot, dense primordial state to its present state over a span of about 13.8 billion years of cosmological time. (https://sci-highs.com/how-old-is-time/)
The problem is that if we had a clock for how long humans have been in existence and it was 24 hours, we would have only existed for 90 seconds. Humans in evolutionary theory are 2800 times less than that of the existence of time alone. We see in nature beings that adapt like the Axolotl which can be considered an adaptation to their environment. The phenomenon displayed by axolotls subsequently termed neoteny (a category of paedomorphosis), marks the first great impact of the study of salamanders on evolutionary biology. These observations set a course that ultimately led to the current dynamic field of evolutionary developmental biology—evo-devo—and the literature on development in axolotls, alone, are voluminous.

Differences between them are likely the result of evolution this website suggests (although they could be simply the result of phenotypic plas-ticity, mutation and adaptation. Gen 1:21 – God created animals after their kind, reproduce within their own kind and not evolution.
The Bible stipulates in Gen 1:22 – birds preceded reptiles, so to suggest that they share a common ancestry to dinosaurs contradicts the truth of the word of God. There have been sightings of pterodactyls throughout the world still to this day and modern common ancestors to the dinosaurs of the past are chickens.
The technology uses a series of mathematical calculations—the most recognizable of which is known as half-life—to estimate the age the organism stopped ingesting the isotope. Unfortunately, the amount of Carbon-14 in the atmosphere has not been steady throughout history. In fact, it has fluctuated a great deal over the years. This variation is caused by both natural processes and human activity. Cosmic rays and changes in Earth’s climate can cause irregularities in the amount of Carbon-14 in the atmosphere. Humans began making an impact during the Industrial Revolution. The isotope decreased by a small fraction due to the combustion of fossil fuels, among other factors. However, the quantity of Carbon-14 was nearly doubled in the ’50s and ’60s because of the atomic bomb testings in those decades. Though it’s biggest, the calibration problem is not the only flaw of radiocarbon dating. As the lecture detailed, it is only accurate from about 62,000 years ago to 1,200 A.D. There is a sizable amount of time before and after that period that cannot be investigated using this method. Also, archaeologists cannot use their hands to touch the samples or smoke near them. They risk seriously altering the result of the test. The “Old Wood Problem” is the last flaw of radiocarbon dating that will be elaborated upon here. If an archaeologist wanted to date a dead tree to see when humans used it to build tools, their readings would be significantly thrown off. This is because radiocarbon dating gives the date when the tree ceased its intake of Carbon-14—not when it was being used for weapons and other instruments! Since trees can have a lifespan of hundreds of years, its date of death might not even be relatively close to the date the archaeologists are looking for. Thorough research and cautiousness can eliminate accidental contamination and avoidable mistakes.

God simply doesn’t as Einstein suggested: “roll the dice” as his beliefs were in a higher presence but not a personal one. Adam Sedgwick The reason why the theory of evolution was created: ‘From first to last it is a dish of rank materialism cleverly cooked up …. And why is this done? For no other reason, I am sure, except to make us independent of a Creator.’
It is not intellectual suicide to believe in a personal God, it is with an intellectual curiosity that one searches for a higher being, man questions life and the meaning of it and eventually if he is called by God, he finds the truth and is set free from the chains and that which keeps him from being bound by sin and the eventual eternity of hell. Galatians 4:4-7 – “But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.”
Thirdly, natural selection is flawed in the sense that genetic diversity is the main constituent to how we adapted and changed, for instance, the hemispheric flap that we see of the orient descent was formed after many years of exposure to the sun which like natural selection in the sense that our bodies adapted to the natural surroundings to better handle life. Natural selection in the eyes of a true scientist can see that if two bugs, one black and one white were sitting on a dark rock, the white one would fall prey to the predator that was hunting it and so, progressively this bug will become extinct due to its natural and the ability to not camouflage itself.
In “The God Gene, Dr Dean Hamer reveals that this inclination toward religious faith is no accident; it is in good measure due to our genes. … It’s a book that bridges the gap between science and religion, and one that will appeal to the readers of Genesis and “Genome alike.
Microevolution is the change in allele frequencies that occurs over time within a population. This change is due to four different processes: mutation, selection (natural and artificial), gene flow and genetic drift. This is also flawed in the sense that through natural selection, animals adapted to their environment to survive and Macroevolution is flawed due to the lack of in-depth analysis and information suggesting that it could be true. https://uncommondescent.com/intelligent-design/a-world-famous-chemist-tells-the-truth-theres-no-scientist-alive-today-who-understands-macroevolution/
In conclusion, many contributing factors suggest evolution is a flawed philosophy in the start of creation, much like the big bang which can be compared to how things came to be, after all how can something come from nothing. It’s much like the discussion which came first, the chicken or the egg? Well, the chicken had to come first to lay the egg and for evolution to explain this example, it couldn’t. The big bang is diametrically opposed to the supernatural creation described in the Bible. Furthermore, there are many other differences between the big bang and the biblical account of origins. For example,
· The Bible tells us that God created heaven, earth, and everything within them in the span of six days (Exodus 20:11) and rested on the seventh day. This is the basis for our work week (Exodus 20:8). In contrast, the big bang model claims that the universe and earth formed over billions of years.
· Genesis tells us that God created the stars on the fourth day—three days after the earth was created. In contrast, the big bang model claims that stars existed billions of years before the earth.
· The Bible tells us that the earth was made from water (2 Peter 3:5; Genesis 1:2–9; Psalm 24:2), but the standard secular model teaches that the earth began as a molten planet which cooled over millions of years and that the oceans were the result of asteroid or meteor impacts, or from the dissolution of comets as they entered earth’s atmosphere.
How come time is based on Christianity, the bible has 7 days and it is chronologically sound as well as undisputed, we focus our timeline on BC: Before Christ and Anno Domini, which is Latin for “in the year of the Lord”
That’s why Evolution is considered a theory and not a fact.
