8-3-1 It Works!

I grew up learning evolution as fact in school. But I have learned that there are problems with the theory of evolution. Some examples:

The time problem: there is not enough time for life to evolve, even given billions of years. Just for bacteria to evolve scientists believe it would take forty billion to a hundred billion years.

The coordination problem: evolution teaches that all the wonderful complexity of life is nothing but a bunch of chance events. Yet a bat would need to evolve flight, sound navigation, ears to hear it, a brain to process the info received all at the same time.

The mate problem:  an animal that evolves into a new creature would have to have a mate do so at exactly the same time and place to be able to meet in order to propagate the species.

The no evolution problem: some animals haven’t changed:  sharks and mosquitoes have not changed.  If a new species is smarter, stronger and better, why to the weaker, dumber and more basic animals still exist?

The codependence problem: a plant that requires insects such as bees for pollination had to evolve at the exact same time and place as bees evolved. Plus, the bees need these plants to survive, as well.   

The decision problem: evolution makes it sound like an animal made a conscious decision to evolve.  One day, a fish decided it wanted to go on land.  One day a reptile decided it wanted to fly. One day a cold–blooded animal decided it was tired of being affected by cold weather so, it evolved a biological thermostat and became warm-blooded. One day an ape decided it wanted to walk, so he came down out of the safety of the trees.  Since, it couldn’t see over the tall grass it decided to walk upright. 

Yet, creation is dismissed out of hand as wrong without any consideration at all. But with creation, all these problems are solved!  God created life to be co-dependent.  He created the animals as they are. The problems mentioned above are solved. Creation works!   

“All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.” 1 Corinthians 15:39.
