    be full of examples. However, no evidence is found of gradual evolution in the fossil record. It seems to have occured 'too quickly' in the past to be recorded.

    I tell you, this evolutionary process is a strange matter. If it is happening 'too slowly' today to see it, and has happened 'too quickly' in the past to find it, I think it is wiser to say that it has never happened at all!"

How does the fact that we cannot observe evolution from one species to another today contradict the theory of evolution? How does it agree with creation?

9. Man's conscience and soul. All human beings are born with a conscience - a sense of God and of right and wrong. All civilizations, even the most primitive cultures, have some form of god and religious worship. A sense of the importance of one's soul is felt in all people - all feel to some degree the moral responsibility and accountability attached to the exercise of their will.

Human personhood, therefore, could not have developed from an impersonal, morally-void, material source. Man's personhood requires a personal, moral, and spiritual Creator.

How does the observable fact of man's conscience contradict the theory of evolution? How does it agree with creation?

10. The testimony of God's Word. The most important and irrefutable evidence of creation is God's Word. The Bible clearly states that "in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is" (Exodus 20: 11a). Evidences revealing that the Bible is the true Word of God were studied in Chapter Three.

God cannot contradict Himself. He cannot state that He has created the universe in a certain manner in His Word and testify of contrary realities in His creation. Therefore observable evidences of God's creative work are evident in His creation.

How does the observable fact of the testimony of God's Word contradict the theory of evolution? How does it agree with creation? Why is this the most important and irrefutable evidence of all?

Do you observe and rejoice in God's creation? Do you pause to quietly hear His voice and see His hand in nature? Is creation the personal work of a personal God to you, or is it impersonal matter from an impersonal source and power? How should our view of creation be reflected in how we think of, and use it? How can we undervalue and misuse creation? Has God opened your spiritual eyes, enabling you to see His majesty in creation?

  • Accountability - Being held responsible; needing to give account for one's dealings

  • Morally-void - Without any morals or moral personhood

  • Irrefutable - Incapable of being proven wrong

  • Why would a true Christian not only see, but also use, creation differently from an evolutionist?

    Why would a true child of God rejoice in God's creation, but even more in His Word? How does this question relate to God's general and special revelation?
