Creationism Vs. Evolution

While the theory of evolution is very commonly accepted amongst most scholars and intellectuals, when the scientific facts used to 'support' it are closely examined, it becomes apparent that it is merely that: a theory. Inaccurate information, misguided philosophers, and in some cases, just plain ignorance, have all contributed to this 'scientific religion' that does nothing but lead people away from the true nature of our existence, the Genesis creation. The creation 'story' is much more than just a story, it is a scientifically provable fact, and one that should be treated as more than just a parable or story, as the Word of God is pure and the absolute truth. One of the first major pillars of the evolution theory that falls away under close scrutiny is the concept of an 'old earth.' Because the evolutionary process needs millions and millions of years in order to take place, evolutionists declare that the earth must have existed for 4 to 5 billion years. However, with all things considered, this theory is simply impossible. Three astronomic facts disprove it almost immediately: the recession rate of the moon, the dissipation of the earth's magnetic field, and earth's rotation rate. The moon is very slowly drifting away from the earth. Currently, it is at a distance of approximately 239,000 miles away from the planet's surface and receding at a miniscule, but steady rate. However, "if one multiplies this recession speed by the presumed evolutionary age, the moon would be much farther away from the earth than it is, even if it had started from the earth. It could not have been receding for anything like the age demanded by the doctrine of evolution." (Barnes) Furthermore, even if the moon had started much closer to the ea... ... middle of paper ... ...y Press, 1982. Gish, Duane T. "Modern Scientific Discoveries Verify the Scriptures."
