Summary: Atheism is growing in America, due to the universal teaching of evolution. The church must counter this with strong evidence of the impossibility and contradictions of it. Here is a compiling of the latest juggernauts against the hoax of evolution.
THE HOAX OF EVOLUTION
A. HUMOR: ONLY HEARING ONE SIDE
1. A Judge was about to swear in a member of a jury when he was told that the man was deaf in one ear.
2. “You really can’t serve on the jury.” “Why not?”
3. “Because you can only hear one side!” We’re going to look at an area where people often only hear one side.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth!” Gen. 1:1.13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:13–17.
1. The Bible is clear that Jesus Christ is the Creator of all things.
2. The big question is this: Did God make man, or did man make God? That is, is man in the image of God, or is God in the imagination of man? Is man just an animal, just a clever creature?
3. This morning we’re going to take a critical look at evolution, its weaknesses, and the alternative. This message is entitled, “The Hoax of Evolution.”
I. WHAT IS EVOLUTION?
A. MODERN PROPAGANDA
1. We all know the propaganda -- billions of years ago a primordial ooze or slime somehow – magically – developed into a living one-celled organism, a protozoa, which over billions of years became an un-segmented worm, then fish, then amphibian, then reptile, bird, mammal, and somehow, turned into man.
2. How did this miraculous process take place? Two things: One is mutation—that things keep changing; and then, next, natural selection, which has led to the survival of the fittest.
3. Evolution teaches that nothing plus time plus chance changes amoebas to astronauts, molecules to monkeys to man. Like the Princess who kissed the frog and it turned into a Prince – but this one’s a fairytale for adults!
4. ANCESTRY MIXUP HUMOR
A child asked his mother, "How were people born?" So his mother said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on." The child then went to his father, a scientist, and asked him the same question and he told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now." The child ran back to his mother and said, "You lied to me!" His mother replied, "No, your father was talking about HIS side of the family."
B. MANY SCIENTISTS REJECT IT
1. Christians never have had the idea that you have to check your brain at the door not to study science or evolution. Many intelligent and well-trained scientists are moving away from evolution, not because they are Bible believers, but because of the lack of evidence and the contradictions they see to science.
2. Dr. Newton Tahmisian, a physiologist for the Atomic Energy Commission: “Scientists who go about teaching that evolution is a fact of life are great conmen, and the story they are telling may be the greatest hoax ever. In explaining evolution, we do not have one iota of fact.”
3. Sir Ambrose Fleming, electrical engineer and physicist, said: “The evolution theory is purely the product of the imagination.”
4. Swedish embryologist, Dr. Søren Løvtrup: “I believe that one day, the Darwinian myth will be ranked the greatest deceit in the history of science. When this happens, many people will pose the question, ‘How did this ever happen?’”
5. Most of the great scientists of the past were creationists: Michael Faraday, Lord Kelvin, Joseph Lister, Louis Pasteur, Isaac Newton, Johannes Kepler, Sir William Ramsey, Lord Francis Bacon, Samuel Morris.
6. Recently 200 scientists joined the ranks of Intelligent Design proponents. Science textbook authors Percival Davis & Dean H. Kenyon published Of Pandas and People in 1989, 1993, & 2007, promoting Intelligent Design.
7. WHAT’S THE EVIDENCE AGAINST EVOLUTION?
II. FOSSIL EVIDENCE
1. First of all, EVOLUTION IS NOT HAPPENING NOW. If evolution were true, we should be able to point to many examples of it occurring -- there should be many "transitional" forms that we could observe. What we see instead are distinct species with unbridgeable gaps between them. For example, there are many varieties of dogs and many varieties of cats, but no "dats" or "cogs."
2. Further, the fossil evidence is clear that EVOLUTION NEVER HAPPENED IN THE PAST! If evolution were true, the fossil record should be filled with transitional forms, but it’s NOT!
