"By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deep in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast." (Psalm 33:6-9)
"So the evening and the morning (primary creation of the elements, division of light from darkness) were the first day… the evening and the morning (separation of water and sky) were the second day… the evening and the morning (separation of earth and sea, vegetation) were the third day… the evening and the morning (sun, moon, stars) were the fourth day… the evening and the morning (fish, reptiles, birds) were the fifth day… the evening and the morning (insects, animals, man) were the sixth day…" (Genesis 1:5-31)
"But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work…for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day." (Exodus 20:10,11)
The Big Bang
The Reader's Undigest condensed version, Peter Dunstan, 2008.
In the beginning there was a big bang. Man, was that ever a blast! No wait, maybe it was a big unbang, a humongous tubular infarction (that’s Latin, so it sounds doctoral and academic, meaning “to cram full with”), a galactic implosion followed by the overstuffed celestial haggis (that’s Scottish for “animal tummy filled with innards”) exploding all over the place. I can't remember all that clearly, mainly because I wasn't there, but something collapsed in on itself so badly it just had to get out fast, and the zipper burst big time. It was one of those gigantic, self-induced reflux things, a majestically painful reversing unburp of indigestion that keeps the universe recycling on the wheel of rebirth, like a massive clock hand that comes around full circle and wallops itself from behind. That's enough to make anything flatulent.
And then came stuff, don't ask me where from, probably from un-stuff. And because of the magnitude and force of the universal burp, the stuff broke up into lots of pieces, but for some reason they were all still attracted to each other, the big bits really having an immense pull on the small bits, and so it seemed like a good idea if they partied, you know, like hung around and gyrated with each other, trying not to contemplate the inevitable crash and burn when they all ran out of steam and piled back into the mother of all haggises again.
In the meantime, on one of these tiny
bits of stuff, something incredible happened. Well the whole thing is
unbelievable really, but if you’re still with me you’ll love this
part. This seemingly inconsequential sideshow ball of stuff had its own little bit of indigestion, gave off
some gas, which formed into vapor clouds, which produced droplets of
which fell back on the stuff, followed by a crackerjack thunderbolt, and
lo and behold, there was a jelly bean of an amoeba. Then the amoeba itself
had a bout of micro-indigestion and made a few more of itself to keep it
company. The only problem was that there was nothing to eat, except each
other. So they all died out.
After this the amoeba began to grow arms. Or maybe it was legs; it’s hard to tell. They needed to get around, you see, even though they didn’t know where to go, so they thought some limbs would be useful. Well actually they didn’t really think about it, because they had no brains at all. Anyway, pretty soon they got the hang of motion and found some plants they could live on. But the plants had created themselves way to early. They had no insects to pollinate them. So they all died out. Later, the plants came back thoroughly confused by gravity, heat and light; they began growing with their roots sticking up in the air and their leaves burrowing underground. But eventually they sorted out which way was up, and taught their seeds how to obey the three laws of thermobotanics.
Following this, some reptiles turned up, no idea where from, and started eating the plants. Then some of them thought it would be a better idea to eat each other. So the ones that were getting eaten got fed up and decided to try to grow wings. Well they didn’t really decide because they had brains the size of peanuts. They just ran around flapping their arms, hoping like crazy that something might happen, like they would change their genetic code by sheer force of pea-brained willpower, grow feathers, lose ninety per cent of their weight and take off. But this lofty plan had a critical flaw. It needed millions of years, and the meativores only needed a long weekend to eat all the flapping veggiebores. After that came the great dinnersaurus famine. So they all died out.
Next, some hoofy-horny creatures came along from somewhere, but they found that the plants had grown too high for them to eat the leaves. So they all died out. After this they grew longer necks in order to reach the leaves, although they got pretty hungry in the meantime because that took a million years, and then they started fattening up. This attracted the big cats, which started sneaking up on them and chasing them for sport. So the hoofy-hornies grew longer legs to get away. So the big cats grew longer legs to catch up. So the hoofy-hornies gave themselves stripes and spots to hide better amongst the plants. So the big cats gave themselves stripes and spots so that they could sneak up on them more easily. Pretty soon the big cats ate all the hoofy-hornies, and then there was nothing left. So they all died out.
Next came the hard-shellers. These were teenage mutant kneejerk turtles that had malformed due to a reaction to radiation, mainly from watching way too much television, so their backbones had grown outside their bodies to protect them from further damaging emissions. Also, in an attempt to escape the sun's rays, they opted to live in the sea. At first they were too light and floated around like corks and starved. Then they made themselves too heavy and sank to the bottom and drowned. Finally, after a million years, they got their body weight just right, but they still had to come up for air lots of times, and, when they laid their eggs, hungry mouths from the deep simply gobbled them up. So they all died out.
After this they thought it would be better to hide their eggs on the land where they would be safe. But when they hatched, the fish-cat-whisker-tooths and long-leg-sticky-beaks were waiting for them right at the shoreline. So the athletic ones that hatched first found not only that their shells were not yet hardened but also that they were the first delicious item on the luncheon menu. This became known as the "suicidal of the fittest." The puny laggards that slept in and crawled out last waddled slowly down to the sea and swam away because the feasters were too glutted to eat another morsel. This became known as the "survival of the flimsiest." The problem was that they became more and more scrawny with each generation. So they all died out. After this they decided to lay their eggs only when it was dark, and teach them to hatch only at night.
Then came the birds. There was a popular rumor for a while that these were fish that just couldn’t help themselves and came snapping and crackling out of a hot, volcanic, salty sea like popcorn on a spree, running around tippy-toe on their fins until they fooled their DNA into growing some feet, and doing a whole lot of weight lifting and aerobic exercises until they got the hang of being heavier and breathing out of water. But this would have taken a million years, and they would have all died out. So now we know better; it was either a chicken or an egg that came from the land.
Not sure whether it was the bird or the egg first. Maybe the primal egg was a leftover in the doggy bag of the previous cosmos that got super-condensed, and the gigantic burp sort of reincarnated it by spewing it back out into freezing space where it was caught in orbit for a while, then warmed up nicely as it entered the atmosphere and fell into a tree, hatched, reared itself and made a nest far above the dangerous meativores below. Then it made more eggs, and they turned into baby birds that had no idea why they lived in a high rise, or that they were supposed to fly, so when they left home they hit the ground pretty hard. So they all died out.
After this they set up some serious flight training programs. Soon the birds were launching as fast as Windows utilities and multiplying like crazy, on account of their being able to easily feast on the fruit in the trees, since those tall plants had decided to put out fruit in order to reproduce themselves too. And this was going along pretty well until the birds started pooping on the heads of the two-legged creatures that appeared in the forest below. Until then, the two-leggers had been happy to simply chew the tubers they had dug out of the dirt, and they walked with such a sorry stoop that they never looked up anyway. Well, all that changed when the tubers ran out and the poop came down and hit the royal fan (the palm leaf that the chief two-legger was using to keep cool). The whole tribe got really angry, and very inventive, making bows and arrows to shoot and eat the birds, and climbing the trees to eat the eggs, and then picking the fruit when the eggs were gone, after which there was nothing left to eat. So they all died out.
And then the two-leggers thought (yes they really thought, because they had grown brains the size of apricots that were capable of multi-tasking) that it would be better to capture the birds and bring them down to earth. So they snared them in nets and made them grow smaller wings so they could not get away, keeping them on the ground where they could easily be picked up and eaten. Then, a two-legger genius had a stroke and put an idea to work, organizing the birds in sheltered pens, feeding them plant fruit seeds in regular portions, which caused them to involuntarily generate tasty eggs every day.
And so began the great agrifarma era, rapidly followed in sequence by the culinostic phase (when the two-leggers discovered that fire made the birds and eggs even tastier), the sacriblessic advancement (when they decreed that a holy two-legger wearing a funny hat or collar could sanctify the birds and make them proliferate even faster), the motovendo revolution (after they invented and mass-produced the wheel that allowed them to truck birds and eggs back and forth to each other in trade), and finally the technomoola age (when the whole on-demand process could be streamlined and controlled by a hand-held abacus). And that is pretty well where we are at today…all the way from the big bang to the bottom line. Like, awesome, dude!
Thus the final period of reason and knowledge eclipsed the previous epochs of superstition, when gullible two-leggers listened intently as the funny collared ones divined things from lizard entrails and the swelling pregnancy of the moon as it got all gibbous and waxy. Now they know better; all they need to do is take a peek in the daily paper to see what the stars above have in store, while the ones with really big spyglasses can keep regular tabs on the expansions and contractions of the big picture, that heaving morass of galactic maternity. Sometimes they gather together in annual feasts and make reverent speeches to (you guessed it) a little haggis, in the vain hope that they might soothe that unthinkable fear of getting sucked back into the mother haggis. As if. Didn't you know that everything in the chain eventually ends up squished in the black hole of the bigger belly that is out to get it? Of course you did; you knew that all along.

Sound laughable reader? Well it is…and it isn’t. It was written in jest after reflecting on some inane statements that a Christian elder once said to me in defense of evolution. The vast majority of people in the world, including so-called scientists, professors, priests and politicians believe in this utterly unscientific “theory” lock, stock and barrel. And they teach it to children. It is, quite literally, incredible. Ever looked at a car and thought that it might have designed and manufactured itself? I mean, that somehow it accidentally prepared and then assembled all its working parts in exactly the right place so that when self-refined petroleum spouted out of the earth and, bingo, went right into the gas tank, it turned on its own ignition and took off. How did it manage to do that, when one tiny little thing out of place would mean it could not possibly succeed?
It’s ludicrous. So is the “theory” of evolution. It would not matter how many billions of years were vainly allotted to sitting around and waiting for it to happen. Even with the outside interference and direction of a designer, it is a trillion times more complicated to create a common snail than an automobile. So try to imagine what is involved in making a working world, where the rays from distant stars are arriving now, not light years later, and rivers are already set in their initial grooves, and birds must know how to fly first time from cliff nests; the mathematical calculations and the power required are way beyond our comprehension.
The LORD decreed and accomplished a six-day creation, or to be more accurate, an instantaneous creation followed by six days of “bringing forth” the species, each generated “according to its kind,” with its reproducing seed already within it, and each of those six days had one “evening and morning.” For this same reason the LORD specified that his elect should work six days and rest on a seventh, the exact period of time that He chose to bring forth and shape all things from the base matter he had initially created in a single, indivisible, atomic finger snap. The LORD lives in the eternal realm, where a day may just as well be a thousand years, but He created the world in time, which is itself one of His creations. Indeed, He created time and the length of a day before setting the sun and moon in their allotted place. (Genesis 1)
In time, a day includes one morning and one evening, not thousands of them, and we measure it as 24 hours long, one revolution of the earth. Creation did not occur in days lasting the equivalent of six thousand days or six thousand years or six billion years. Neither did the earth revolve a thousand times more slowly than now. If a revolution were even one year long, let alone a thousand, then all plant and animal life would have been scorched from the earth. And how about insects being created two days after plants? If that occupied two of these ridiculously long eons, then plants requiring insects for pollination would have died out. And yet even Christians propose this interminably "long day theory" or "theistic evolution" as truth. As if the Living God had to experiment in a laboratory for eons trying to perfect a finished product because He could not get it right the first time! What a backhanded insult! They vainly adhere to this notion because they seek to slide around the plain meaning of the Word and please the majority opinion of man, hence they will be no better off than atheists or devotees of other evolutionary faiths when the day of wrath against unbelief comes. In fact they will be worse off, because they pay lip-service to the LORD (or more accurately to the puny Baal that they imagine is Lord) while deliberately denying the Word of truth.
Some will even tell you, in their well-practiced spiel, that this is “not a doctrine necessary for salvation,” as though they could decree what the LORD may or may not accept as faith. That is empty, sugar-coated, religious garbage, reader. Believing in the Word of God, delighting in its storehouse of treasures and holding fast to its core truths is absolutely essential for anyone hoping to arrive at the right place. This is not some take-it-or-leave-it, really-does-not matter principle. Nor does it belong in the realm of the silly bumper sticker theology portrayed by a fish (that pagan sign of Pisces so beloved by Christians) swallowing Darwin or the other way around. (see: The Dark Powers That Bind, Chapter 3 for the origin of this fish fetish) It is a pivotal question of life or death, a telltale indicator of the state of the faith or unbelief that exists in the heart of each and every individual on earth.
The Word of God tells us that we ourselves came from the creation of a single pair, the first man, Adam, (Genesis 5:1-2; 1 Corinthians 15:45-47) and first woman without whom the man would have been alone (Genesis 2:18) and whose name, Eve, literally means "the mother of all human life" (Genesis 3:20), and that later the earth was re-populated through just eight of their descendants, the survivors of the Flood. (Genesis 9:1; 10:32) Death entered the world through the failure of the first man and woman (Genesis 2:17; Romans 5:12); it was not there beforehand in endless generations of semi-developed, ape-like creatures perishing over millions of years, or any other half-baked "missing links" for which the fossils cannot be found. And there should be trillions of them if this theory had any scientific truth.
Where are these myriad morphs, reader, these mega-trillions of fossils of reptiles half changed into birds? Where are the countless cat/dogs? Nowhere, except in the fable called the theory of evolution. Evolutionists cling desperately to the belief that archaeopteryx, of which there are very few specimens, was a link or "transitional form" between dinosaur and bird. Then where are the millions of half-archaeopteryx half-bird fossils proving this supposedly ongoing development? Archaeopteryx was simply another species, created according to its own kind, and it did not survive. It may have had some feather-like appendages, but it is no more an ancestor of a bird than a platypus, with its beak-like mouth, is a relative of a duck. Go outside your front door and you can see Genesis Chapter One staring you in the face. Examine it and touch it. Every plant, insect, bird and animal is "according to its own kind". Nothing is evolving from one kind into another, and never has. Taxonomists are scientists whose job it is to classify the species into Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species, and everything out there, living or extinct, is meticulously examined, sorted and classified exactly in this way, according to its kind. And that is precisely what we find in Genesis Chapter One, repeated ten times over, so that we might get it right.
"Then God said, 'Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth'; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind...Then God said, 'Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.' So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind...Then God said, 'Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind': and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind..." (Genesis 1:11-25, days 3 & 5)
Darwin himself wondered why there were no "intermediate" specimens to support his hypothesis. He wrote, "Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory. The explanation lies, as I believe, in the extreme imperfection of the geological record." (Charles Darwin, 1859, The Origin of Species, p.280) In other words, despite being faced with the hard facts, Darwin blamed geological non-evidence instead of his own absurd theory, and later speculated that the intermediate forms might be discovered in the future. They have not been found, reader, and they should be worldwide, in abundance everywhere! According to a Lady Hope, who visited him on his deathbed, Darwin said, "I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time over everything, and to my astonishment, the ideas took like wildfire. People made a religion of them." That she visited him has been verified, but no one else was present to confirm her account of this conversation, which she wrote about in her letters to others. What is undisputable is that people have indeed made a religion out of his conjectures, a religion of pure fantasy.
And the adherents to this religion are extremely fervent, even fanatical in their devotion to it, excitedly producing and narrating TV shows about our blue planet and its evolving species when all that is shown is the existing species, each according to its own kind, none of which is evolving. David Attenborough, in his trademark enthusiastic drivel, claimed to demonstrate Darwin’s theory with a mouse and a bat, explaining how one evolved into the other, without a shred of evidence, absolutely blind to the glaring fact that, as the mouse’s forelegs supposedly evolved by fantastically gradual stages into wings, there would have been an enormously long period of time when the morphing mouse/bat, no longer having properly functioning legs but not yet able to fly, would not have survived. What an absolutely inane thing to believe! This is a religion is for the brainwashed. It is not science. The word science literally means knowledge, and it is based on what we can observe and touch. The opposite of science is ignorance.
There is no evidence for an evolution of the species on this earth, only minor adaptations confined within each classification. Adaptation is not evolution. Some very closely related creatures like a horse and donkey can breed and produce a mule, but it ends there; the mule is sterile and cannot produce anything. Some creatures may be more naturally robust or aptly fitted in some way to survive changing conditions, but that is merely survival of one kind and extinction of another, not morphing of one kind into another. There are sharks that died out, but that does not make them ancestors of the sharks that survived, as evolutionists so blindly insist, because there is no evidence of such morphing. Dogs did not come from cats, or horses from dogs, or men from monkeys; they were created side by side. "God gives it (flesh) a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. For not all flesh is alike, there is one kind for men, another for animals, another for birds, another for fish." (1 Corinthians 15:38,39) The Word of God outlines exactly how we came into being, how long it took, where we are headed, and most important, why it absolutely had to happen this way, and this way only. If you are ready to understand this, then now is the time to read God & Evil in The Truth Which Sets Free on this website.
Imagining that something is billions of years old (and therefore conveniently dating it that way) and dividing it up into various epochs and eras is all speculation and fabrication. Indeed, in order to believe that such infinitesimally gradual evolution took place, its proponents have no option but to invent these eons of time. Assuming that something has always been there simply because it happens to be there right now is a fallacious and deadly assumption, as wrong as believing that the bread which Christ created instantaneously to feed thousands must have previously gone through a long process of grain planting, growth, harvest, grinding and baking. It leads to faith in (and also worship of) the created thing instead of the Creator, an error that you can hear declared every time someone refers to Mother Nature or Mother Earth. The widespread belief that we are little more than chemical accidents inhabiting a wobbly ball spinning through space toward an inevitable rendezvous with the sun, with each of us being no more than a parcel of chromosomes evolved from previous mixed bags of cells, is one of the clear portents that we are entering the final stage of history. Men and women think nothing of dismissing God and yet desire to play God, messing with the genetic codes that they could not create in the first place but are all too eager to clone and experiment upon.
Imagining that they will not be called to account, homosexual proponents advance their perverse mono-sapiens agenda toward its doom, parading it through every media outlet and justifying their physical unions at every government level. (see Sodom and Tomorrow on this website for the ominous Old and New Testament scriptures concerning this subject) Others are even condoning sex with animals. Well, why not, if you believe you descended from them? We are being bombarded and urged to swallow this philosophical offal, like the farmers who feed their domesticated and unsuspecting cattle with their own guts and brains and cause them to turn into mad, quivering wrecks that have to be destroyed. No, reader, there is a terrible price to be paid for closing your eyes (or as the apostle Peter so aptly put it, being “willingly ignorant") to the truth of man’s origin and destiny. Think about that phrase. They deliberately disregard the observable facts and choose to stay in the dark. There are none so blind as those who refuse to see, and the totally unsubstantiated theory of evolution is a religion for the blind. If you die in that willingly ignorant state, you stay incarcerated in self-inflicted darkness for all eternity. And the dawn of that great reckoning is much closer than you may think, a big bang indeed, a great and terrible blast (great for a few, terrible for most) that will herald the end to all mankind's vain speculations and usher in a new genesis for those few who patiently await it.
"In the last days scoffers will come...They will say, 'Where is this
coming he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.' But they willingly ignore that long ago by
the Word of God the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same
Word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men... the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare...But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness." (2 Peter 3:3-13)
Note here, Peter refers to the great Flood,
reason why there are marine fossils on the tops of mountains, and why we find
the evidence for mass extinction of countless life forms that had
forth in the Beginning. In the
fabricated chart of evolutionary eons, one such unexplained
"explosion" of life followed by extinction is called the
Cambrian Period, supposedly occurring half a billion years ago and lasting
some 50 million years. To see the real timeline read:
Creation to The Flood. This
so-called Period is named after Cambria, the Roman name for Wales, where Adam Sedgwick, one of the pioneers of geology, studied rock strata. Charles Darwin was one of his students,
and Sedgwick never accepted Darwin's theory of evolution.
Science is knowledge, reader, and if you want to "know" God and what He is like, there are two perfectly scientific ways to go about it. One way is to look at what the Creator has made: the firmament, the earth and the millions of species, each according to its kind. The other way is to look at His incarnation in Christ, by examining the firsthand accounts written by His companions like Peter and his close friend John.
"For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty." (The second letter of Peter 1:16)
"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have touched, concerning the Word of life." (The first letter of John 1:1)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made...He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him...the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father...No one has ever seen God. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has made Him known." (John, Chapter 1:1-16)
Men have tried to smother the evidence for both the Creation and the incarnation of the Lord who entered His own Creation, even crucifying Him in a vain attempt to silence the Word, and the vast majority are still in this state of darkness and denial today. Ignore these two simple and perfectly rational ways of knowing God at your peril.
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened." (The apostle Paul's letter to the Romans 1:18-21)
