Pueblo Indians painted pictures of dinosaurs as seen (outlined in green) at Kachina Bridge, USA. In Peru similar pictures are painted on stones. These Indians lived in Utah around 1000AD indicating dinosaurs walked the earth at that time. These people knew these animals to be able to carve or paint them. This is only one example of recent dinosaur existence. There are tribes in the Congo that claim to have seen them as recently as 1960’s. In 2009 some in the Philippine islands claimed a sea dinosaur has been sighted multiple times around the rocky shoreline. This is evidence dinosaurs lived recently.
Mutations occur frequently in nature. Many diseases are the result of genetic mutations. The number and variety increase every year. Evolutionists claim life evolved through many small changes or mutations over millions of years. The beneficial mutations survived and advanced life on the earth. Mutations not helpful for survival caused the organism to die and not propagate. All mutations observed by scientists show a loss of information, a decay. There has never been a documented gain of information. There are theories of how mutations could randomly evolve but experimentation always fails. Since God created the earth and life, it all has been running down. Mutations multiply each generation. The earth must be young as all life would have died long ago if the rate of mutation existed for hundreds of thousands of years.
The Unified Theory of the source of all matter in the universe is based on string theory. All objects, an apple for example, or even us people, are made of atoms. At one time atoms were thought to be the smallest objects, indivisible. Scientists later discovered atoms are made of electrons, protons and neutrons. The protons and neutrons are made of quarks. The quarks and electrons, as well as all other particles like photons (light) are made of strings. This may one day be proven true, no longer just a theory. But the question then shifts from “where did atoms come from?” to “where did strings come from?” In the end we still have the same problem – the source of ‘all’, regardless of what that ‘all’ is. The Bible tells us right at the beginning, that “In the beginning God created …” He is the source of all.
A sea dinosaur, plesiosaurus, is thought to have been caught in a fishing net in 1977 off the coast of New Zealand. A Japanese stamp was created for this creature in 1977. It should have been extinct. An ancient fish, the Coelacanth, supposedly lived 340 – 80 million years ago, is now extinct. Or so scientists said. These have been discovered alive and well in South Africa, off the coast of Madagascar, in 1938 and more recently in the seas of Indonesia. Really makes one question how accurate dating techniques are and the real timeframe of these animals as well as the age of the earth.
Sea dragons (dinosaurs) did not live millions of years ago but lived very recently. Much ancient pottery, drawings and pictographs show land and sea dinosaurs. This picture shows Saint George slaying a dragon, sometime between his birth in 263 A.D. and death in 303 A.D. The ‘ancient’ pottery and native’s hieroglyphics vary in age from a few centuries to a few thousand years at the most, no where near millions. A fishing trawler off New Zealand probably caught a pleiosaur (extinct ocean dwelling dinosaur) in 1977. Natives in the deep Congo jungle of Africa claim small dinosaurs live there to this day.
The entire population of the world could stand inside the area of the United Kingdom! Each person would have 36 square meters or a space 6 meters by 6 meters (19 feet by 19 feet). The earth is no where near over-crowded, it is mis-used. More efficient irrigation, better use of sloped land for housing and terracing for argiculture would assist greatly with the worlds food needs. Better sharing and distribution with less waste and there would be no shortages. People could work on resource management, not war machinery and destruction to resolve our population (food/water shortage, living space) concerns.
Richard Feynman, Nobel prize in physics, said “Many scientists do believe in both science and God, the God of revelation, in a perfectly consistent way.” Alan Lightman, an M.I.T. professor stated “References to God continued in the scientific literature until the middle to late 1800’s. It seems likely that the lack of religious references after this time seem more from a change in social and professional conventions among scientists rather than from any change in underlying thought. Indeed, contrary to popular myth, scientists appear to have the same range of attitudes about religious matters as does the general public.” God is not dead! As scientific knowledge advances God is coming back, for true science points to Him.
The largest desert in the world, the Sahara, is growing. At 4400 years of age, it is estimated to be the oldest desert in the world. Noah’s world wide flood happened about 4,400 years ago as well. It is no surprise there is no desert older than this, for the catastrophic results of the flood greatly altered the world’s landscape. The pyramids of Egypt are located in the north east corner of the Sahara. They are also of similar age. Careful study will show this to be true for many things. Any object claimed to be older needs close analysis of the dating techniques and assumptions used to derive the age.
The Jewish calendar says the year 5769 is the year 2000 in the Julian calendar, the one most of the world uses today. The Chinese calendar came from the Babylonians around 2500 B.C. It is interesting that this calendar begins at approximately the time the flood, Noah’s world wide flood ended; as would be expected. The world was beginning anew. It is equally interesting, and telling, that there is no evidence of writing, no records, older than the time of Noah’s flood. Supposed ancient records have not been shown to be as old as declared. Other supposed ancient sources are verbal, not written and thus again cannot be verified. It appears written history, as well as the calendar’s of the world, began shortly after the world wide flood ended.
The Chinese calendar presents 12 images of animals. Each roughly corresponds to a month of the year. 12 animals and 12 months. That is not strange. 11 of the 12 are animals that exist today, they are real. Deductive reasoning implies the dragon is, or was, a real animal as well. Likewise from other sources we see the dragon is not a typical dinosaur but more like a dragon from the movies. One that had wings and breathes fire. We do not see evidence in fossils of these creatures, thus far. The Bible does mention them as real animals. Logic thus implies the Bible is truthful in this aspect, and likewise in many, many others.
In 1841 the word dinosaur was invented. Before this, these creatures where called dragons. Thus the terms mean the same thing. Many recipes for healing in middle ages called for dragon saliva or crushed bones. The epic story of Gilgamesh records him slaying the dragon Humbaba.Chinese history records driving dragons out of the land as they settled it. There are many reports of dinosaurs still living in the jungle of the Republic of Congo, Africa. The local people call them Mokele-Mbembe. All over the world are carvings in buildings and temples, cave drawings, stone paintings and stories of dinosaurs. To draw and carve images of dragons (dinosaurs) they must have been seen by mankind. Thus they did not live millions of years ago but lived very recently. Some small ones may still be living in remote locations.
Universe – latin from ‘uni’ and ‘verse’. Uni means ‘one’. Verse means ‘spoken word’. This means all that is was created by a spoken word. The Bible, John 1:1 says ‘In the beginning was the Word’. Genesis 1:1 says “God said …’ People once believed, and many still do, that the universe did not evolve from a ‘big bang’ but was created by God saying “Let there be …” A close analysis of the scientific data, without an anti-God bias, does fit the idea that the universe was created recently, like 6,000 years ago. It did not randomly evolve over billions of years.
Our world is incredibly beautiful. Blue waters, white clouds, green plants, shades of brown earth and rock. An amazing variety of plants and animals, such as this Golden Pheasant. What colours! What defines beauty? Why is this bird beautiful? Did beauty evolve or was the world created with beauty built in? It’s hard to imagine beauty coming from random events. An analogy is music. A classic composition is beautiful to listen to. It has order, symmetry, pleasing tones. Random bangs on a drum or picks of guitar strings don’t make music. The idea that beauty evolved from random events makes no sense.
The earth is rotating at 1,674 kilometres per hour (1,046 miles per hour). It is slowing down, thus periodically time is added (a leap second) to our clock. This last happened June 30 2015 at 7:59:59pm. Extrapolating backwards, the earth was travelling much faster in the past. Centrifugal (rotational) force at high speed flings objects outward. A higher speed would have destroyed the earth: ground, water and plants. The atmosphere would fly into space and nothing could live. The truth is, the earth is young. It’s speed has been increasing only for the past 4000 – 6000 years, probably since the destruction and world wide changes caused by the global flood approximately 4,500 years ago.
The moon’s orbit around the earth is expanding every year. It is getting further away. Going back in history, 1.2 billion years ago the moon would have been touching the earth. Even if not, if it had a low orbit there would have been serious trouble. As the moon’s orbit around the earth causes tides, had the moon been very close at one time, the tides would have been extremely high. So high in fact they would have destroyed the earth’s continents with their force and no life could have evolved. Likely the moon is not near as old as some scientists predict.
