Two humorous stories to supplement Friday 11/24/2017 Blog. US Education’s Greatest Failure, EVOLUTION!

God made? OR Descended from apes?

Sarah, 10-years old, came home from school and asked her dad: “Dad at school today the students were talking about where did all the people in the world come from.  What’s the true answer? Where did they all come from?”

Her dad being an Atheistic Evolutionist answered with a detailed explanation of Evolution ending with: “So, you see Sarah, we are all descended from ancient creatures that looked like apes or monkeys.  Do you understand?”

Sarah acknowledged her dad’s explanation, but she thought: ”That’s not right, in Sunday school I was taught God made me.”  After dinner ended, dad was watching TV.  Sarah and her mother were cleaning up.  Sarah decided to ask her mother the same question she’d asked her dad; “Mom the kids at school were arguing about where all the people in the world came from.  Where did they all come from?”

Mom responded: ”About 6,000 years ago God created the Universe and everything in it in six days.  During the sixth day, he made two people named Adam and Eve that were made by God.  They received a mind, emotions and a will just like God.  They became the parents of all of the people in the world.”

Sarah looked puzzled and continued: “Mom I’m baffled.  I asked dad the same question today, and he told me we’re descended from monkeys.  Which way is it?”

“Well, Sarah, I understand why you’re confused, but I think I can solve this problem easily.  When you dad told you, people were descended from monkeys he was talking about his side of the family.  When I told you about Adam and Eve I was talking about my side of the family.”

Created Life? OR Evolving life?

Now that science has a good understanding of genetics and the complex functions in living systems I expect Evolutionists to claim soon that they can create life in the laboratory.

Evolutionists will say: “Now that we understand how life works, we believe we can create life in the laboratory from clay just like God claims He did.”  The Evolutionists go outside, dig clay from the ground and bring the clay into the laboratory.  “Now we will make life in the laboratory!”  They exclaim.

God’s voice booms: “Wait a minute.  That’s my clay. Make your own!”

The Evolutionists give up because they know you can’t get something from nothing.

US Education’s Greatest Failure, EVOLUTION! After more than 50 years of monopoly in public education, Evolution is only believed by half the US population.

Evolutionists express great frustration and distress in the persistent results of polling about whether the US public believes in Creation or Evolution as the origin of humankind. Poll after poll, after poll, after poll all say the same thing. About half the US population believes in Evolution in all its different forms, and the other half believes in Creation in all of its forms. Although evolutionists have had a monopoly in education for more than 55 years and have pounded Evolution into students all that time the numbers, haven’t changed much since they started. In some recent polls, the results of this question have even gotten worse for Evolution. For example, in two 2014 Gallup polls the results were;

Poll 1: “Do you believe in ape to man evolution?” 34% believed in God assisted (Theistic) Evolution, 16% believed in Atheistic Evolution, 43% in some form of Creation and 7% have no opinion. So, 50% believed in Evolution, 43% in Creation and 7% didn’t care, OR to say it another way 77% believed God played some role in our existence and only 16% believed He did not! Atheistic Evolutionary educators have taught five generations of students, attending public schools, that God did not play a role in their creation, and only 16% believed them! By any standard that’s a very poor result.

Poll 2, in May 2014: “Do you think the Theory of Evolution is consistent or inconsistent with your religious beliefs?” Consistent 46%, Inconsistent 46%, No Opinion 7%. Half and half again!

Since, shortly after the end of World War II, the US public schools taught Evolution as the ONLY way to explain humankind’s origin. In 1959 the 100th anniversary of Darwin’s publication of “Origin of the Species” was celebrated when Evolution education was declared essential for the US to be successful in scientific achievement. After more than 55 years of intensive educational effort to promote Evolution half, the US population remains unconvinced its true. Can we conclude that convincing students Evolution is true is not just a matter of education? Yes, we can! Changing one’s view of the question of, where we came from, is one of the most profound questions we ask.  Education doesn’t easily change a person’s worldview and presuppositions.  It’s NOT simply knowledge that you are trying to change; it’s their faith in who they are, and people do NOT change that easily. Humanistic Evolution educators, wake up, your attempts to educate the US population out of their faith has been an utter failure.

After more than 55 years of a near monopoly in public education indoctrinating students into Evolution, why have they been so unsuccessful convincing students they came from apes? The reason is obvious! Evolution is illogical and easily recognized as false. Education can’t overcome something that is obviously not true. People just won’t believe it even when it’s the only thing taught.

Two Approaches to Teach Your Children Biblical Truth

Now that my third book in Christian Apologetics is launched I’ve decided my next project will deal with Christian Education.  The tentative titles are: My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?  Addressing Christian Parent’s Dilemma of How to Educate Their Children.  Today, from my draft, I’ve included two approaches to teach your children Biblical truth.  Children of believing parents are responsible for instructing them from birth in God’s Truth and Word.  The first is an illustration of the power of God’s Word.  The second a “how to” lesson from one of my mentors that can be very effective teaching method.

One of my responsibilities early in my Christian life at Mitchel Road Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC was teaching the high school class. On Sunday, the lesson was on Jesus teaching about building your house on the rock or the sand from Matthew 7:24–27

The materials included little, fold-up, paper houses and pages with pictures of sand and rock. Although I thought this was poorly prepared teaching, never the less I taught it faithfully. I even told Terry (my wife and helpmate) on the ride home that it I thought it was a stupid lesson. Years later, I met one of the students from that class. He said, “Mr. Liebert, do you remember teaching the lesson about the two houses—one built on sand and the other built on rock?” I confirmed I remembered thinking to myself “That stupid lesson.” He said:  “Well, that lesson changed my life!” Lesson learned! Never sell short God’s ability to use weak vessels to carry out his will. And don’t trust your judgment regarding what God can do when you are faithful.

REMEMBER BOTH  1) There is no “stupid” in God’s vocabulary and 2) God’s Word has transforming power.

A great idea I got from one of my mentors was his daily review of TV newscasts with his children.  In the early evening, his children would be sent to do homework, and he would watch and videotape the news of the day.  He would pick out several stories and note the times on the tape.  The four children, ages 10 to 16 would come down for the family time each night about 7:00.  They would spend about 20 minutes reading Scripture and prayer.  Then he would play one of the stories from the tape and ask each child what Gods Word said about the content of the news report.  This interaction with the current news was a great learning time both because of his instruction but also the peer-to-peer communication between the four children.  He often created contention by asking “loaded” questions to get them to think about real spiritual issues.  For example, several of the children were doing a summer project reading “Les Misérables,” He asked: “Is it OK to steal bread if you are starving?” This question resulted in six days of lively evening discussions!   He shared one particular video news case with me.  The story was a home invasion where the homeowner shot and killed the intruder.  They all got into a lively discussion that lasted more than 2 hours.  The question they debated became: “When and if is it justifiable to take another person’s life.”  Years later the then 12-year-old would tell his father that story was a life-changing discussion because he realized for the first time how precious God views every human life.

The Christian’s Biblical Responsibility to Teach Their Children God’s Wisdom.

This week I begin a series that addresses Christian parent’s responsibility to educate their children.  I speak with some life experience, having two children and five grandchildren.  My wife Terry and I became Christians in 1977 when I was 35.  In 1995, I joined the Board of Caldwell (Classical, Christian, Community) Academy (CCCA) in Greensboro, NC, one year after its founding and served for three years.  During that time Caldwell moved to a permanent facility and we saw the student body more than double.  Leaving the board in 2001, I taught at CCCA for three years before beginning teaching at the Community College level where I still teach today.  You can see Caldwell CCC Academy today at http://www.caldwellacademy.org/about-us/

If God gave you children, then he also gives you responsibility for their instruction.  As a parent, one of your PRIMARY responsibilities is your children’s education. Before you can begin teaching your children, you must learn God’s wisdom yourself from the primary source, the Bible.  Since we are God’s creation we must understand the nature and character of God.  This gaining of wisdom is a cycle of study, learning and teaching.  It requires effort!  In Romans 12:1-2 we are told it happens by the renewing the mind, personal STUDY! Your work is to take your thinking and bring it from your sinful self to more and more knowledge of God.  This transformation impacts our behavior as we are changed more and more into the image of Christ.  By building a foundation of our spiritual depth we can begin to instruct our children.  In the Bible verses below, you will see it is our effort combined with faith in the Scriptures brings us greater wisdom.  We can only teach what we know and understand so, the more we grow the greater our ability to impart wisdom to our children.  Remember it’s not just what we teach it’s more how we live.  Our actions often speak louder than our words so we MUST let the truth transform us.  Do not say to your children: “Do what I say not what I do!”  Say to them:  ”Watch me and do what I do!”  A living example has far more influence than instruction alone.  Read these Bible verses carefully to see the importance of wisdom!

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Psalm 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

Proverbs 4:13 Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.

Proverbs 9:9 Instruct a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

2 Corinthians 10:5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God and take every thought captive to obey Christ,

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

MAGIC!! Why Atheistic Evolution is Impossible, 1) Something from Nothing, a TOTAL Scientific Barrier.

There are two opposite views to explain how we got here: Evolution, everything appeared very slowly during billions of years OR Creation, God made everything in six days about 6,000 years ago. Which one is true? Both frameworks face the same obstacles. There are three steps in both processes that require miraculous action because they violate known and proven scientific LAWS. Remember, Laws of science have NO exceptions. If they do, they can’t be a law, only a theory or a hypothesis. For Creation, this breaking of scientific laws requires no explanation because Creation is supernatural. God has the power to break laws, and they remain laws. WE call these events miracles and Jesus did many, walking on water, the Canna wine, raising Lazarus, calming the storm, healing many, etc.

My new book Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead! Sub titled “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE” can change many minds about the Evolution’s viability because Evolutionary development flagrantly violates three scientific laws, the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics and Biogenesis.   To break a scientific law, you need a miracle, and Atheistic Evolution cannot allow any because they must reject the supernatural.  I call these three miracles: Magic, Frankenstein, and Uphill Molasses.  This week we’ll deal with “Magic,” the appearance of something from nothing, a violation of the 1st Law.

Evolution is NOT science but a model to think about the past, so the next question we ask is: “how reliable is the Evolutionary framework?” Since the Universe cannot be eternal, the Big Bang begins with material that suddenly appears from nothing and then explodes. This first step is impossible because it violates the 1st law of thermodynamics. Most evolutionists start their Big Bang models several microseconds AFTER the matter has appeared and do not address the problem of its original appearance. This appearance defies the first law, which says, pardon the paraphrase: “You can’t get something from nothing.”

The1st Law of Thermodynamics is also called the law of the conservation of energy. It states that the total energy/matter in an isolated system is constant. It can be transformed from one form to another, but cannot be created or destroyed.

The Universe is considered an isolated system! Therefore, the total matter/ energy in the Universe is constant and CANNOT change.  NO matter or energy can appear or disappear.  Evolutionists that address this problem of the matter arising from nothing say either; 1) “the laws of physics do not apply until matter appears” or 2) “this remains a great mystery.” In both of these cases these “excuses” they call explanations reveal the faith nature of Evolution. Since the appearance of everything from nothing violates a scientific law, it MUST be accepted BY FAITH. It is NOT scientific! In your witnessing, point out to the Atheistic Evolutionist that they deny faith because “there is no God!” yet believe in the miracle of the sudden appearance of matter in violation of this scientific law. Here we see the contradictory nature of the Atheistic worldview. Faith in something from NOTHING but NO faith is allowed in anything else?? Think about that statement, and you’ll see it’s absurd!

Atheists, Agnostics & Materialists have FAITH because they believe History.

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say: “I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from us. These statements are easy to answer and often provide an opportunity to present the gospel. Materialist declarations challenge Christians to spar verbally. Don’t shy away from them; they will give you a chance to share the Gospel.

In the United States today there are many people, even in churches, who believe these materialistic imperatives from Atheism, Agnosticism, Humanism, Materialism, and Marginal Christianity.   All of these worldviews are described in “Worldviews and Religions” from the book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!

Last week we explored immaterial opposites like hot-cold, wind, and light-darkness to demonstrate that people who claim they only believe in the material world believe in many things that can’t be sensed. Today we’ll look at the second of these non-material arguments, the Historical Narrative dialogue. Our whole understanding of history is based on others writings and experiences and not on our knowledge. WE believe in history by faith in the ones who communicated it to us.

Historical Narratives

I: “I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.”

Me: “Do you believe George Washington was a real person? Did you ever see him? You only have the testimony of books written by other men.”

I: “Of course.”

Me: “Do you believe there was a Roman Empire? Do you believe two world wars occurred in the twentieth century?” (You can use as many examples as you can think of, just don’t use any events that happened during the person’s lifetime.)

I: “These things are historical events I know happened.”

Me: “You only know about past events that you didn’t witness through the testimony of others. So, you trust in something you did not see. Do you concede you believe history through the testimony of others?

I: (Affirms.)

Me: Then let me tell you some history. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the most documented events of all time. If the stories about Jesus were not true, we would know because men and women don’t sacrifice their lives for a lie. Besides the testimony of history, we have two-thousand-plus years of history to affirm Jesus’ saving power.” (Give a short testimony.) “What about you? Do you believe Jesus lived, died, and rose from the dead to bring you salvation?”

The Origin of Language Stumps Evolution. Author Tom Wolfe in “The Kingdom of Speech.”

Many of my BLOGs have dealt with the impossibility of Evolution and the credibility of Biblical Creation (In six days, 6,000 years ago) in the area of science, but answering the question of where we came from is more than a just a scientific one. It encompasses all the nature of humankind because we’re made in God’s image. This week I’m deviating from my normal blog to review a book. In The Kingdom of Speech, author Tom Wolfe makes a compelling case against Evolution based on the origin of human language.   In the early pages, Wolfe makes the point that ALL attempts to explain how language could evolve have failed. In a 2016 article, eight of the world’s most prominent Evolutionists conceded total defeat. In his, closing Wolfe states “To say that animals evolved into man is like saying that Carrara marble evolved into Michelangelo’s David.”

Back cover: “Language in all its forms advanced man far beyond the boundaries of natural selection, allowing him to think abstractly and plan ahead (no animal was capable of it); measure things and record measurements for later (no animal was capable of it); comprehend space and time, God, freedom, and immortality; and remove items from Nature to create artifacts, whether axes or algebra. No animal could even begin to do any such thing. Darwin’s doctrine of natural selection couldn’t deal with artifacts, which were by definition unnatural, or with the mother of all artifacts, which was the Word. The inexplicable power of the Word—speech, language—was driving him crazy.” —from The Kingdom of Speech

Background: First there was the word. Or was there? Before Tom Wolfe was a bestselling novelist, he was a groundbreaking journalist. Now the maestro storyteller turns his attention to the mystery behind the creation of his own most important tool: language. In The Kingdom of Speech, Wolfe makes the captivating, paradigm-shifting argument that speech — not evolution—is responsible for humanity’s complex societies and achievements. From Alfred Russell Wallace, the self-taught Englishman who beat Charles Darwin to the theory of natural selection but later renounced it for its inability to explain human speech, to the Neo-Darwinists, who for years argued that there is a language “organ” in the human brain, Wolfe examines how science has repeatedly tried and failed to account for man’s gift of gab. Flash forward to the present day and the controversial work of another outsider, anthropologist Daniel Everett. After thirty years of studying a tribe isolated deep in the jungles of the Amazon, Everett revealed a people whose prehistoric level of speech had led to a society without religion, ceremonies, hierarchies, marriage, or ornaments, and without the ability to plan ahead or to consider a past beyond personal lifetimes, thus defying the current wisdom that language is hardwired in humans. With trenchant wit and uproarious humor, Wolfe cracks open the secretive, solemn, long-faced, laugh-out-loud zigzags of Darwinism, both old and neo-, and he shows the endless importance of the courageous outsider in overturning our most cherished ideas about ourselves. Provocative and fast-paced, Wolfe’s latest tour de force will have everyone talking.

I highly recommend ALL who have an interest in the question of origins read this book. Evolution is FALSIFIED by human language.
