The Logos in Creation

LOGOSmilkytxt

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 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 came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:1-5

“For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” Romans 1:25

About the header photos:

Left: Sea lion having sun’n fun on the stunning iron oxide sand beach of Rabida, Galapagos Islands;
Second from left: Sea urchin shell in Los Humedales on Isabela, Galapagos Islands;
Third from left: Sun halo around a palm in the British Virgin Islands;
Right: Blue-footed booby, from a photo taken on North Seymour, Galapagos Islands.

Meg writes about her study tour of the Galapagos.

“The thing that strikes you again and again is just how little living things have changed from their fossilized ancestors. The sea urchin shell, from a recently expired thorny native, could have been a fossil from the so-called Pleistocene. Take a look at this interesting article on that subject.”

“A number of fellow passengers on my tour were raving about the recent TV series “David Attenborough’s Galapagos”. You can read a review and find further links here.

“The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology. The evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of the branches; the rest is inference, however reasonable, not the evidence of fossils.

Evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould (who is no longer an atheist, as he died in 2002): “Evolution’s Erratic Pace,” Natural History, Vol. 86, May 1977, p. 14

“Without any question, Darwin was the greatest atheist-maker who ever lived…Darwin and darwinism is toxic to belief in Christ…unbelief in terms of origins and who we are affects every other belief system that Jesus taught…Because of Darwin we had fascism, communism, virulent racism, we had moral meltdown, sexual revolution, abortion on demand. Most importantly, we had the collapse of the Church, the believing Church.”

Below, you can watch a brief (2:28 minutes) excellent glimpse into the truth about Darwin’s famous finches (and sweet footage of the blue-footed booby…pictured in the header at the top of this page).

Prof. Jan Komdeur Ph.D., Avian Evolutionary Ecology, University of Groningen, comments in this clip:

“The finches in the Galapagos, they change rapidly, but the species doesn’t change; it is the morphology that changes rapidly.”

The clip is from the DVD Darwin: The Voyage that Shook the World, available from Creation Ministries here.

We highly recommend the following YouTube video on Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome by geneticist Dr. John Sanford:

Bio of Dr. John Sanford, Ph.D. (University of Wisconsin):

A Cornell University Professor for more than 25 years, John has been semi-retired since 1998. His Ph.D. was in plant breeding and plant genetics. While a professor at Cornell, John has trained graduate students and conducted genetic research at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, NY. During this time, John bred new crop varieties using conventional breeding and then became heavily involved in the newly-emerging field of plant genetic engineering. John has published over 80 scientific publications and has been granted over 30 patents. His most significant scientific contributions involve three inventions, the biolistic (“gene gun”) process, pathogen-derived resistance, and genetic immunization. A large fraction of the transgenic crops (in terms of numbers and acreage) grown in the world today were genetically engineered using the gene gun technology developed by John and his collaborators. John also started two biotech enterprises derived from his research, Biolistics, Inc., and Sanford Scientific, Inc. John still holds a position at Cornell (Courtesy Associate Professor), but has largely retired from Cornell and has started a small non-profit organization, Feed My Sheep Foundation.

A scientific convert to six-day creation, his groundbreaking new book Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome demonstrates why human DNA is inexorably deteriorating at an alarming rate, thus cannot be millions of years old.

“There is a popular image of human evolution that you’ll find all over the place…On the left of the picture there’s an ape…On the right, a man…Between the two is a succession of figures that become ever more like humans…Our progress from ape to human looks so smooth, so tidy. It’s such a beguiling image that even the experts are loath to let it go. But it is an illusion.”
