I first must apologize for the stupidity in this subject over the past few years. I was raised with a really bad theological view on it. What subject am I talking of? Evolution. I was raised as a theo-evolutionist. What does that mean? Basically you cut Genesis 1-2 in half and melt it into the theory of evolution. You in turn get a chimera that allows a Christian to feel both faithful and they don’t have to defend Creation. They will tell you that evolution and Creation fit together, but guess what? It doesn’t!

The world was created in six days. Only six days. Not billions of years. Second, on the third day, vegetation was created and on the fourth, God created the Sun, the Moon and the stars. According to the evolutionist there was a big ball of gas in the middle of a void that exploded, creating the universe. This then created the stars, the planets, moons, etc. Not the Earth, then the flora, then the Sun and the Moon. So it fails. You would have to drop the Genesis account all together to fit it into evolution/big bang theory. So then you are just an evolutionist.

But you know, that is what I was raised on. Now, I tell you the world has likely only been around for around 10,000 years. This is from years and human ages given in the Bible plus the 2000 years since Jesus. I cannot give you all the numbers, but we will cover that in a little bit. And you see from the Genesis Creation account that Adam named every one of the animals. This means that all the animals that ever existed, existed at the time of Adam. Meaning no 12 million years between dinosaurs and mankind, or whatever they are claiming now.

Whoa whoa, Jay, how can dinosaurs have existed alongside mankind? We’d have been extinct years ago, right?

Then God said, “I now give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the entire earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the animals of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to all the creatures that move on the ground–everything that has the breath of life in it–I give every green plant for food.”
Genesis 1:29-30

Get that? The plant-life was given to the animals and us as food. We didn’t eat animals, and animals didn’t eat of animals or humans. So this clearly means that mankind was safe from the dinosaurs! The dinosaurs were all vegetarians, and so were we. But wait? If this is so, why do we eat meat now? You just debunked your Bible there, Jay. Ha!

Then God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. Every living creature of the earth and every bird of the sky will be terrified of you. Everything that creeps on the ground and all the fish of the sea are under your authority. You may eat any moving thing that lives. As I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
But you must not eat meat with its life (that is, its blood) in it. For your lifeblood I will surely exact punishment, from every living creature I will exact punishment. From each person I will exact punishment for the life of the individual since the man was his relative.
Genesis 9:1-5

This verse is right after Noah and his family leaves the ark after the Flood. God then grants Noah and mankind to eat meat. The following verse says that no one is to spill the blood of a human, for they were made in God’s image, and punishment will be dealt on them for their sin. So when did this Flood take place in relation to Adam? Did humans have time to “evolve” from monkeys to what we are now? Well, in Genesis 5 we get the family line from Adam to Noah. And guess what? There we only 1,056 years between Adam and Noah, and then Noah was 600 when the Flood started. So, there were only 1,656 years between Adam and the Flood. According to the evolutionary theory, evolution requires millions of years to take place, not one and a half thousand.

Now after this, we can follow the line from Noah’s son, Shem, to Abram (renamed Abraham by God) in Genesis 11. Note how ages and times were given again. And how long was that? Two hundred and thirty-six years after the Flood, Abraham was born. So, according to theo-evolution, we were made monkeyesque at Adam, and evolved over time. Well, from Adam to the Flood there were 1,656 years, and from the Flood to Abraham there were 236 years. At this point you have God promise the land that becomes Israel to Abraham’s offspring. When he was one hundred, Isaac was born. Isaac was to be the line to the Israelites. From him, Jacob son of Isaac, Levi son of Jacob, Kohath son of Levi, Amram son of Kohath, and finally Moses son of Kohath. If we look at the descending lifetimes of man from Noah to Abraham, we can estimate three hundred years or less from Isaac to Moses, meaning that now we around 2400 After Eden (AE).

Now we all know the history of Moses and the Ten Commandments, as it is re-aired every year on ABC. Now that movie is not fully accurate, but it you can understand this: we were fully human at the time. Moses wasn’t half chimp or anything. So in 2,400 years, evolution couldn’t have brought monkey to man, and thus we had to have been human from the start.

Now the purpose of my article here was not to specifically prove the theory of evolution wrong, but to refute the idea that evolution and Creation can actually get along, because they cannot. There is absolutely no way that the timeframe that evolutionists have given us (millions of years) can even work with the thousands of years of the Bible. Creation happened in six days, and God rested on the seventh. These were real days, not ages, not millennia, not anything other than what the Word of God says. If you wish to get into a more in depth talk about all the things that can be proven erroneous within evolution, feel free to email me or comment on here. I would be happy to defend God’s Creation anytime.
