I really get tired of hearing how evolution is no longer a theory but
is now a proven fact. I ask, "How is it a proven fact?" There is one
main question I have evolutionist to answer for well over 40 years now
and I am still waiting for an answer and I suspect that I will never
get an answer. The question is quite simple, "Taking into
consideration all totally and completely proven scientific facts
leaving none out what caused all things to become as they are today?"
Simpler form, "What force was applied to cause everything to start
into motion?" Until that question is answered then in my opinion
evolution is and shall always remain just a theory.
Do I believe that the earth is billions of years old? Yes, because it
has been scientifically proven to be so.
Do I believe that large creatures roamed the earth during that time
that we call Dinosaurs? Yes, again because it has been scientifically
Does me believing in this in any way conflict with me believing the
bible account of how God created all thing? No, in fact I find, after
over 30 years of studying the bible, that it supports what I believe.
Let me explain, I am what is called a Gappist. Now a Gappist is
someone who believes that there was a span of time between Gen.1:1 and
Gen. 1:2. Now since scientist have proven that the earth is almost
certainly over a billion years old then as I do not know just how long
of time lapped between Gen. 1:1 and Gen. 1:2 I have no problem
accepting that idea.
How do I accept idea of creatures we call dinosaurs to have existed
upon the earth, because of what God said unto Job. God describes to
Job two creatures which He, God, had created and Job at no time
disputed God on the matter. The first creature God describes He
called, Behemoth, God's description of this creature is located in Job
40:15-24. The next creature God calls, Leviathan, and He describes it
in Job 41:1-34. Now by God's description of both creatures neither of
them are in existent today.
So I have never had any problem accepting anything that science has
proven to be fact.
