Heavens declare the glory of GOD

Heavens declare glory of GOD


Is evolution a lie?

Why do I hold a sign that declares evolution is a lie? Do I really believe evolution is a lie? Can it be true that students in public schools and universities are being taught a lie? I hope to answer these questions and afterwards if you don’t agree I will still love you.  I hope you will consider what you do believe about how you came to be here at this exact moment, and whether you have a mind that will allow you to ponder deep subjects like this. So that you might personally work through searching for a truth and not just cling to what you have read or been taught. Is there any love for the truth within you or only a love for self and all that provides pleasure?

A definition of terms is of importance even for an abbreviated statement.
“Is” in this statement is a transitive verb denoting something equal in meaning i.e. Evolution is a lie. There is also a glimpse of truth here. For there is  something within the nature of man which opposes the use of this word incorrectly. The soul or conscience cannot be settled when this word is used with deceitful intent. ie. the sky is green, 2 + 2 = 5, a man is immortal, a human is capable of knowing everything, a man is able to exist and not exist simultaneously, or, slavery, murder, and rape is not always wrong; if the strong, rich, powerful, or wealthy believe that : the good and pleasure of the strong justify the abuse of the weak. Truly darkness is not light, and evil is not good, and man is not God
and God <strongIS the creator of all things and therefore there is a good and a evil and a light and a dark.

Ais an indefinite article, meaning not the only lie, but one of what could be many.

 lie as used as a noun defined as: an assertion of something known or believed by the speaker to be untrue with intent to deceive. An untrue or inaccurate statement that may be or may not be believed true by the speaker. Something that misleads or deceives, or a charge of lying.

The noun evolution is used broadly and for ideas pertaining to history, process of change, unfolding, social changes, economic changes, historical development, extraction of a mathematical root, a process in which the whole universe is a progression of interrelated phenomena, and then phylogeny or a theory that the various types of animals and plants have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations.

As per my sign, it is not referring to ideas, history or mathematical problem solving, but is referring to phylogenies, meaning the evolutionary history of a kind of organism. This would be distinguished from the evolution of genetically related group of organisms.

  • These definitions are found in Merriam Webster on line 2012

My background as a Christian is science or applied science as used in my profession, but I have only a layman’s knowledge of evolution. This being the case I will refer to an article from to address more clearly the vocabulary that today’s evolutionist might use. This website is very informative and offers the most pure insight into the scope of evolution I have ever seen presented. As a Christian I disagree with what they teach but I appreciate they don’t make claims that go beyond what this theory attempts to achieve. Before defining evolutionary terms I will briefly declare where the lie of evolution falls in the Christian worldview. It is not to find holes in this set of ideas and allow for those which would not conflict with the revelation of GOD. The lie or the deception is : to call a study science and then exclude all parameters which are opposed to the outcome you desire, In this case, to call evolution science with the presupposition that there is no GOD who created all, and rules all, and is the only source of truth, and by Whose standard of truth all things are measured. This evolutionary website states truthfully that evolution does not prove or disprove GOD’s existence, but all of the data has been developed to portray a universe in which organisms are created and evolved randomly. A study of evolution by using man’s ability to think, using the senses, reason, and logic and in response to our surroundings to test and to make sense of that which is seen and unseen is senseless without acknowledging that man has an innate abilty to think, reason, formulate, and make logical conclusions and inferences.  There must be a faith in these attributes of man given by GOD or we can’t know anything. We couldn’t  even be sure of our existence. As humans we must use our mind to interpret these things. Facts do not speak fur themselves, they are always interpreted according to a system or framework. An evolutionary framework is grounded in naturalism and all conclusions are within this idea set – what exists today is from nature and ruling out anything which would be thought of as super natural. But the concept of thought, truth, wisdom, logic are all super natural. To allow for the intellect and reason the evolutionist must possess- to proceed in interpreting the data and facts observed. And yet to deny intellect and reason demonstrates the bias that exists in the study of evolution. To declare that our present existence has not been affected by anything outside nature because this can’t be known naturally is to declare that we can not know anything for certain because to know anything for certain our foundation must be based on truth, wisdom, knowledge and intellect. This is the primary lie of evolution, its bias against GOD while claiming science. Below are some of the terms discussed by Talk Origins. Their message would be the inconsistency or lack of reason put forth by a creationist, but it would appear that the neo Darwinists have clouded the subject in a way which would make it difficult for even the evolutionist to navigate the shifting sands of their worldview.


First, we have to get the definitions right. The following terms are defined: macroevolution, microevolution, cladogenesis, anagenesis, punctuated equilibrium theory, phyletic gradualism

Creationists often assert that “macroevolution” is not proven, even if “microevolution” is, and by this they seem to mean that whatever evolution is observed is microevolution, but the rest is macroevolution. In making these claims they are misusing authentic scientific terms; that is, they have a non-standard definition, which they use to make science appear to be saying something other than it is. Evolution proponents often say that creationists invented the terms. This is false. Both macroevolution and microevolution are legitimate scientific terms, which have a history of changing meanings that, in any case, fail to underpin creationism.

In science, macro at the beginning of a word just means “big”, and micro at the beginning of a word just means “small” (both from the Greek words). For example, “macrofauna” means big animals, observable by the naked eye, while “microfauna” means small animals, which may be observable or may not without a microscope. Something can be “macro” by just being bigger, or there can be a transition that makes it something quite distinct.

In evolutionary biology today, macroevolution is used to refer to any evolutionary change at or above the level of species. It means at least the splitting of a species into two (speciation, or cladogenesis, from the Greek meaning “the origin of a branch”, see Fig. 1) or the change of a species over time into another (anagenetic speciation, not nowadays generally accepted [note 1]). Any changes that occur at higher levels, such as the evolution of new families, phyla or genera, are also therefore macroevolution, but the term is not restricted to those higher levels. It often also means long-term trends or biases in evolution of higher taxonomic levels.

Microevolution refers to any evolutionary change below the level of species, and refers to changes in the frequency within a population or a species of its alleles (alternative genes) and their effects on the form, or phenotype, of organisms that make up that population or species. It can also apply to changes within species that are not genetic.

more freedom to change.


Ways in which the term “macroevolution” is used by scientists. Some are exact in the way they use it, while others are less exact. These usages are not all the same, and this causes some confusion. Why do scientists not agree on the meaning of their terms?

The meaning modern authors give to the terms “macroevolution” and “microevolution” is often confusing, and varies according to what it is they are discussing. This is particularly the case when “large-scale” evolutionary processes are being discussed. For example, R. L. Carroll, in his undergraduate textbook (1997: 10) defines microevolution as “involving phenomena at the level of populations and species” and macroevolution as “evolutionary patterns expressed over millions and hundreds of millions of years”. Eldredge says, “Macroevolution, however it is precisely defined, always connotes “large-scale evolutionary change” (1989: vii) and throughout his book speaks of macroevolution as roughly equivalent to the evolution of taxa that are of a higher rank than species, such as genera, orders, families and the like. In his book Evolution, Mark Ridley defines the terms thus (2004: 227):

Macroevolution means evolution on the grand scale, and it is mainly studied in the fossil record. It is contrasted with microevolution, the study of evolution over short time periods, such as that of a human lifetime or less. Microevolution therefore refers to changes in gene frequency within a population …. Macroevolutionary events events are much more likely to take millions of years. Macroevolution refers to things like the trends in horse evolution … or the origin of major groups, or mass extinctions, or the Cambrian explosion …. Speciation is the traditional dividing line between micro- and macroevolution.

There are many papers published that use the term in this “higher category” way; why is that?

Science is not always consistent in its use of terms; this is the source of much confusion. Sometimes this is carelessness, and sometimes this is because of the way in which terms are developed over time. When biologists and paleontologists talk about macroevolution in the sense of “large-scale” evolution, they are strictly speaking meaning only a part of the phenomena the term covers, but it is the most interesting part for those specialists. That is, they are talking about the patterns of well-above-species-level. l evolution (Smith 1994).


The misuse of the terms by creationists is all their own work. It is not due to the ways scientists have used them. Basically when creationists use “macroevolution” they mean “evolution which we object to on theological grounds”, and by “microevolution” they mean “evolution we either cannot deny, or which is acceptable on theological ground. ( end of article by Talk Origins).

These conclusions are developed because in speaking with creation minded people they hear a wide array of diverse creation accounts. This is mirrored with conversations with the average garden variety evolutionists. For example, though Talk origins does not confuse evolution with abiogenisis, but many of the students of evolution and most in my experience combine evolution, creation of matter, energy, and life all as a result of time, energy, and space. This often will lead to a worldview that excludes all that is not of time and energy and space and results in a denial of GOD, absolute truth,  or even the concept of right and wrong. In like manner many Christians who are students of The revelation of GOD and all His creation will attempt to live with a worldview that allows for a GOD but accommodates the bias of the evolutionary mindset. For example they believe in GOD and believe that HE is present in His providential existence and is the force that has brought all change in the universe He created. Calling themselves theistic evolutionists they prefer to believe a lie and when challenged they set aside GOD’s revelation to man and resort to the teaching of men and believing themselves to be wise they become fool ish.

To deny GOD as creator and to search for any alternative is as the clay to renounce the potter and claim  autonomy in humanity in our present universe. But without reason the human mind is no more able to be aware of self existence than can the earthen vessel. To scientifically and naturally dissect man to a molecular state is to count the neutrons, protons, and elections in orbit around the nucleus, or to measure that energy that holds all this together, or to gather all information within the DNA and reckon this the true human is to err foundationally, for this is not man. Man is made in the likeness of GOD, and man is not only body and flesh but is also spirit and or soul. There is a man for example your self, and there is a man, as in the form of man, the likeness of man, the essence of man.What the evolutionist does is to deny the truth and make man a clay pot. To those that would shake their hand at the potter, I include a passage from J. Budziszewski’s writing, “ Escape from Nihilism”. He was an atheistic philosopher of religion teaching at the University of Texas. He states “ You cannot imagine what a person has to do to himself to go on believing such nonsense ( there is no GOD). He was unusually determined not to know GOD or the revelation of GOD written on his heart. Visualize a man opening the access panel of his mind and pulling out all components that have GOD’s image stamped on them. The problem is that all the attributes of man have GOD’s image stamped on them, so the man can never stop pulling out these componets. No matter how many he pulls out, there are still more to pull. ( As long as a man can still think, reason, seek truth, or know truth his must continue to remove all these attributes that have GOD’s imprint upon them.  As long as there were thoughts of love, mercy, hate, compassion these had to be pulled out). I was the man. Because I pulled out more and more and  there was less and less that I could think about.”  To get to a place when all reflection of GOD is removed is to become a clay pot, an empty vessel.

Thinking themselves wise they become foolish. This man came to a place where he acknowledged he could not escape the truth, he could not escape GOD, and he could not escape himself. GOD’s law was written on his heart.

The knowledge of our creation, and GOD’s will is that which will grant us true wisdom. GOD created us for HIS glory and that we would enjoy His presence. This is the fullness of Joy. This is abundant life.

GOD created man with the ability to love Him for GOD is love. Man fell in sin and through sin came death. Death did not come about as GOD’s way of evolving to a higher species. GOD’s creation was perfect, but now because of sin the world is passing away and everything in it. GOD created every kind after its own kind which after all these years is what we find in the fossil record, and in the ocean depths,  on the mountain tops, and under a microscope. After billions of mutations of bacteria they are at the end of the day bacteria. And man is still man and still fallen in need of a supernatural work of a supernatural GOD to be reconciled  unto GOD.  Jesus Christ is  the last Adam. Therefore just as sin entered the world through one man ( the first adam) and death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned. In fact sin was in the world before the law but sin is not charged to a person’s account when there is no law nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses even over those who did not sin in the likeness of Adam’s transgression. He is a prototype of the coming One. But the gift is not like the trespass for if by one man’s trespass many died how much more have the grace of GOD and the gift overflowed to the many by the one man Jesus Christ. So that as sin reigned in death so also grace will reign through righteousness resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 5.17

Jesus Christ is GOD taking on the nature of man in addition to HIS Godhood living a life of perfect obedience unto death even death on the cross, in GOD’s predetermined decree that He would bear the sins of many and offer His soul once and for all and shed His blood for the atonement of sin, that GOD’s justice would be vindicated, and Christ’s glory displayed for all creation for all time and eternity. For GOD was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him and through Him to reconcile everything unto Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross whether things on earth of things in heaven

Col 1.20

He was bruised for our iniquities and the chastisement which brought us peace was placed upon Him. He was crucified and buried and in accordance with scripture on the third day He was raised from the dead. And now by repentance and faith in Him, He offers us pardon for sin, life eternal, removal of all guilt and shame. He offers that through His death His obedience might be credited to your account and through His resurrection from the dead you might be justified. GOD’s righteousness has come from above and is offered as a free gift. The righteous are justified by faith in Jesus Christ

This world is passing away and everything in it but Jesus Christ offers life eternal so that those who die shall live in Him, by Him, for Him, and through Him. To those saved He is our all in all.

An alternative definition for lie is to be inaccurate or misleading. Present evolutionary theories are most inaccurate in their attempts to limit the scope of study while having a target of proving common origins while avoiding the creation or origin of any or all species. For example to state that evolution is a scientific study of life after its origin is similar to the proverbial antique watch found by an alien. Can we study the parts and say with accuracy we have proved its history of development without knowing the maker, the foundry, the element and the atoms of which it is composed? Can we be accurate in studying this watch as to function and not address the watch maker? Present evolutionary study stands as a set of ideas collected in a fashion that would lead to a predetermined conclusion set by the evolutionist.  The accuracy of a report includes that which is omitted from the study. So in conclusion, evolution is considered a science although it omits the following: origin of matter, origin of energy, origin of life, origin of space, origin of time. In fact some would even say there was no beginning. To omit the beginning is to allow for a presupposition that would be right for whomever had a desire to contemplate their existence. For example, we were deposited here by aliens, we evolved from crystal, or we are only thought and have no body, soul, or spirit.

But with a foundation of truth as revealed and made known by the LORD, we can know this

 The wrath of GOD is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth for what can be known about GOD is plain to them because GOD has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes namely His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly perceived ever since the creation of the world in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse for although they knew GOD they did not honor Him as GOD or give thanks to Him but they became futile in their thinking and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise they became fool ish and exchanged the glory of the immortal GOD for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

Romans 1.18
