  • Initial - First; beginning

  • Initial - First; beginning

  • Theory - A possible explanation; that which provides a framework for further experimentation and thought, but is not proven
  • Evolution - A belief that all life developed from non-living and simpler forms to more complex on its own, without God

  • Origin - Beginning; forming; creating
  • 1. The lack of uniform materials and motion in our solar system. Most evolutionists believe in some form of a "big bang" or explosion theory, in which a great body of matter and energy exploded forming different stars. Planets being thrown out from stars and moons from planets are the basic ideas of this theory.

      If this theory of the origin of our solar system were true:

      - Why is the sun rotating slower than all of its planets, while planets are rotating faster than their moons?

      - Why are Venus and Uranus rotating in an opposite direction from all other planets in the solar system?

      - Why do eleven moons rotate in the opposite direction from all the others in our solar system?

      - Why are the proportions of the moon's elements different from the earth's, and the earth's different from the sun's?

    Why are these observable facts illogical in, and contradictory to, the evolutionary theory? How can they be readily explained by creation?

    2. The Second Law of Thermodynamics. This law teaches that all ordered systems left to themselves tend to become more disordered. A system left to itself tends to break down from its more complex forms to return to its simpler; it tends to move from order to disorder.

    What happens to a running car engine when its power source is not continuously supplied? What would happen to an engine if it was left to itself for ten, fifty, or a thousand years? Would it tend to become more complex or to break down into simpler forms?

    The theory of evolution is built upon the theory that matter and energy left to themselves developed from simpler to more complex forms.

    How do the observable facts stated in the Second Law of Thermodynamics contradict the evolutionary theory? How do they agree with creation?

    3. The complexity of nature. It is estimated that one human eye contains approximately 130 million rods and 7 million cones located in its retina. When light, which travels at 186,000 miles (or 300,000 kilometers) per second, strikes these cones or rods, chemical changes are produced which cause each cone or rod to transmit an electrical impulse through the nerve connected to it. These impulses
