The Truth About The Creation

A Dissertation by Pastor Ed Rice January 2017

If one is going to believe in the inerrancy of Holy Scripture in the 21st century, they must give all diligence to add to their faith, virtue; and to virtue knowledge (2Pet 1:5); this work is intended to help with the latter. Science is a branch of learning dealing with systematic principles used to increase knowledge. A Christian, striving to increase in knowledge, should use science. We cannot be ignorant, there has been a highjacking of the name science. There are those striving to twist scientific principles in a global effort to find a natural explanation for everything in the LORD God's universe. Their diabolical purpose is to disallow any consideration of the Super-Natural, even to deny Him in the very existence of his universe.
The opposition of God and highjacking of science must not, however, deter the Christian from using true science in the advancement of truth. When God created the universe in six-days, as the Bible clearly, and repeatedly affirms, then the branch of learning, dealing with systematic principles to increase knowledge, i.e. science, can support his explanations of exactly how he did it.
God's word details that he created the universe out of nothing. Science exploring the tiniest particles of matter might discover that they are made of nothing; and our grandest telescopes peering into the outer bounds of God's finite universe might find some “nothing” still coming and going. Indeed science has discovered both phenomena and investigating how that is so will increase your faith in God's word. “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself” (Isa 44:24).
When the LORD God's inerrant revelation gives a chronology of events showing the universe to be just over 6,000 years old, then true science can discover the evidence that supports his truth. Not only so, but the science which contradicts that truth is flawed, fudged, and/or misleading.
There are three primary things that make the atheistic evolutionist insist that the Earth and universe are billions of years old: 1) light from outer regions of space, millions of light-years away, must have taken millions of years to get here; 2) geological ages of rocks show them to be millions and billions of years old; and 3) Darwinian evolution happens so-so slow that it must have taken millions of years to unfold. Man thinks about time as a natural, linear, and unchangable measure. In this study time is examined as a created entity which has multiple dimensions and interconnections. Time interacts with God's space and matter continuums. These interactions of time with space and matter are just now being discovered and explored by science; they are easily understandable to the exploring mind of the Bible believer, and they can debunk the three myths just mentioned.
A Bible believer who understands the dimensions and interconnections of time in the universe of God can shake the house of cards built up by the atheistic evolutionist. It is well worth the effort, and can open vistas of depth to the believer who holds to the principle that God says what he means and means what he says.
After 1,800 years of mans prediluvian existence it repented the LORD God that he had made man, and he sent a world flood which destroyed all those not in his Ark. That is God's revealed truth, and science, true science, can display the evidence for such a catastrophic destruction. God broke up the fountains of the great deep, to produce his world flood, and then he miraculously caused the flood waters to recede. This was not a natural event in any sense or understanding, but true science can find evidence, in mountain ranges, in erosion from run off, in glaciers, and in receding glaciers, that supports God's record and time frame. There must be evidence which depicts the truth of God's revealed Word and there is.
In general people believe pretty much what they want to believe. In the 17th century Francesco Redi, a physician of Arrezzo Italy, set out to disprove the spontaneous generation of life that occurred when dead meat was left out in the sunshine. He put a fine screen over some and left some uncovered on the plate. The atheistic evolutionist of the day, who knew for a fact that spontaneous generation of life occurred in unattended meat, now began to investigate how sunlight passing through a fine screen some how inhibits spontaneous generation of life. People are going to believe pretty much what they want to believe. This is more true with the world flood evidence than with many other phenomena.
The believer looks at a large canyon and sees where water rapidly ran off after God's world flood; the atheistic evolutionists sees millions of years of natural errosion. The believer walks through the two mile gorge in Watkins Glen, NY and sees the shear face of rock that was split asunder when God broke up the foundations of the deep; the atheistic evolutionist considers Sir Charles Lyell's theory of uniformity and sees only millions of years of rock layers, which must have stacked one upon another. The believer considers evidence that a continental glacier once stood above the Finger Lakes of Upstate NY and supposes that it was left over after God's world flood; the atheistic evolutionists knows for certain that there was an ice age during the Pleistocene Period, two and a half million years ago.
The information in this dissertation will not likely sway the atheistic evolutionists from his atheism or his evolution; “They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error' (1John 4:5-6). This dissertation can, however engage the believer with facts that can add to his faith knowledge.
There is evidence all around us that supports every detail of the LORD God's revelation to man. Indeed there must be, for his truth is inerrant, his word is infallible. The Bible soundly and repeatedly makes claims of inerrancy, infallibility and inspiration (Psalm 12:6, Matt 5:18, 2Tim 3:16, 2Pet 1:21 et al.). This dissertation stands on that assurance expecting that the common Christian be plunged into the unsearchable riches of God's Word as well as true science. The science that advances the LORD God's meticulous detail has only been available in the past hundred years, yea, much in only the past couple decades. Understanding some nuclear physics, black-holes, imaginary dimensions, theories of relativity, and left over glacier formations will empower a new faith in what God says. Ones mind is herein to be exercised and stretched with some math and science that does not get taught in Bible college or Seminary. It will be well worth the effort. The leading edges of science are spellbinding to the student who is holding God's inerrant, infallible, inspired Scriptures in his right hand.
The philosophy of the wisest of philosophers, King Solomon, states that man has an obligation to explore “all things that are done under heaven.” He calls such a responsibility a sore travail. “This sore travail hath God given to the son's of man to be exercised therewith,” and that arduous, painful effort is fully described by Solomon, “I gave my heart to seek and search out, by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven” (Eccl 1:13). And again, “I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end” (Eccl 3:10-11). And Scriptures tell us also, “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law” (Deut 29:29). Let us then step into that arduous task for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
