Introducing: God’s Created Creatures Wreck Evolution. A Teaching Guide for Biblical Creation.

Today I’m introducing my new teaching book for Christian Biblical Creationists, God’s Created Creatures Wreck Evolution. A Teaching Guide for Biblical Creation.      I became a Christian at age 35, in 1977. After about 4 years of study, I began teaching children and adults Christian Apologetics in several different church settings.  Seventeen years later, in 1994, I retired from the Corporate world and began conducting workshops for children, in homeschools, churches and Christian schools, showing “Creation” as the real explanation for our origin.   For about two years, from 1977 to 1999, I led workshops for Ken Ham’s ministry “Answer In Genesis.”   From all my teaching and writing experience I’ve developed many lessons using living creatures to show how Creation defeats Evolution.  In this book I’ve created a teaching tool for Christian educators and parents that use examples from the natural world to teach the flaws of Evolution to Grammar and Middle school children. http://sixdaycreation.com  

I’ll keep the language simple and use a lot of pictures to make teaching easy and fun. Most units are an even number of pages so you can open the book and see all of a lesson at one time, although some are in two parts.  As a long time, teacher of all ages I suggest, particularly with young children, using one lesson at a time.  Make the teaching fun and don’t be afraid to use the Internet to enhance your teaching but always use caution by keeping children supervised. SO, USE CONTROLS AND FILTERS!! May the LORD bless you when you use this book to teach your children.  The book is divided into four Chapters: 1) Science, 2) Day 5 the SEA, 3) Day 5 the AIR, and 4) Day 6 the LAND.  Each chapter shows examples of Evolution’s failure to explain nature’s creatures, their design and behaviors.  Each example contains goal(s) for that particular topic. There are more than 25 activities on 70+ pages with seven chats/tables and six worksheets.  All 135+ pictures are full color. Here’s four examples of some activity pages. ONLY $14.99 or $14.00 at my website http://www.sixdaycreation.com  Quantity discount? contact Charlie at  charlie@sixdaycreation.com.  If you buy it and like it please write a review on Amazon.

Charlie Liebert’s Christian Apologetics Trilogy 1 Personal Evangelism 2 Questions & Answers 3 Evolution Debunked

At thirty-five, in Greensboro, North Carolina, I became a Christian. My conversion is detailed in “Your Personal Testimony” in my first book “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! ”  My transformation from Atheism was so sudden, surprising, and dramatic that I had to unlearn and relearn almost everything I believed. All my presuppositions changed in a moment. Everything I thought I knew about humankind and God was wrong! The most challenging intellectual struggle I faced was giving up the theory of evolution. I had been taught evolution as fact and accepted it because I thought, “My teachers wouldn’t lie to me.” Besides, it made a lot of sense the way it was presented in my classes. As a new believer, I was confronted with the biblical truth of the Genesis account of creation in direct opposition to the evolution I loved. I immediately knew that Genesis and the Bible did not fit with what I’d learned science classes. It became very clear that there was no evolution in the first three chapters of Genesis.

An intense intellectual conflict developed in my mind that I had to resolve. If God created in six literal days, then evolution could not be true! For the first time, I looked on the other side of the questions. “Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going?” I read all the books I could find about creation and the Bible: Genesis Flood, The Lie, Scientific Creationism, and many more. It took three years for me to evolve from ab Atheistic Evolutionist to a Young Earth Creationist (YEC). I passed through day-age, gap theory, and Old Earth to get to YEC. God’s Word and science did fit together! God created in six literal days!  By my fifth year as a Christian, walking with Christ, I developed a deep understanding of Creation and its Biblical base.

This newfound confidence in Scripture spurred me on to study more and more Christian apologetics. I wanted to be able to explain to unbelievers I knew why Christianity was true. As I grew in knowledge I became less inclined to witness as again and again; I was confronted by questions from unbelievers I couldn’t answer. All those questions from the non-Christians I encountered made me stumble more and more until I began avoiding witnessing for Christ.

Living in Greensboro, NC I was teaching Evangelism to a group of Christian Businessmen for CBMC (Christian Business Men’s Connection) when I realized this problem of questions diverting my desire to share Christ was common among believers.  So, I asked: “How did Jesus handle this problem?”  He didn’t answer their questions but answered with another question to drive his listeners to assess the reason for the question.  This principle of “taking one’s spiritual temperature” is the foundation of my first book subtitled  “A Former Atheist’s Personal Christian Evangelism Plan.” Next week I’ll reveal how I came to write the second and third books in my trilogy.

TWO QUESTIONS ABOUT CREATION. Young Earth (YEC) vs. Old Earth Creation (OEC): Did God lie in “YEC” because newly created things look old, and they are NOT? Does “OEC” conflict with Scripture?

I was recently confronted by an “Old Earth Creation” (OEC) Christian with the challenge: “I don’t believe in a Young Earth, because God lied in Genesis since newly created things look old, and they are NOT!

I responded.  “You made a false assumption in your objection to “Young Earth Creation” (YEC).  God is not deceptive, but God is outside of time. You assumed the age of anything can be determined from its present state, which is called Uniformitarianism. This is NOT true. When God creates, the item appears older than it is because of that false assumption. For example, when Adam was one second old, how old did he appear 18, 20?  When God created the fruit trees, they were ready to bear fruit. That takes YEARS from the seed. When Jesus changed the water into wine, it was splendid wine. The only way we can get good wine is to age it. Uniformitarianism is a false assumption!   When God creates, the objects have an appearance of age.  That’s not deceptive.  You have been led astray because you made that false assumption.”

Then I said: “Also OEC is inconsistent with theology taught by Scripture.”  He disagreed.  So, I continued: “The OEC position directly violates God’s word at least twice. These conflicts are real and not an interpretation of the meaning of the words of Scripture. These two are:

First, Death in Creation before Adam sins in Genesis 3 and

 Second, an imperfect Creation before the end of Day Six.

Both are violations of the nature and character of God as He revealed Himself in Scripture.  There are other indirect Biblical reasons, but they are not as compelling as these two. For example: why did God give us the genealogies in Genesis 5 and 11 and Luke and Matthew if dating isn’t important?”

A Caveat.  I don’t believe that Christians that hold the OEC position are not saved, but that that belief is inconsistent with what the Bible teaches. Believers understanding of God is imperfect because we are sinners. I implore those accept OEC to be receptive to the teaching of God’s Word. Remember, in my journey I was first an Atheistic Evolutionist, and then a Theistic Evolutionist, then I considered gap, day-age, long days, etc. and finally arrived at the “Young Earth” position three years after my conversion. It took an extended study of both Scripture and science to become a YEC.  I went through a process of Evolution in my life, from Atheistic Evolutionist to Young Earth Creationist! He left promising to consider what I said.  I pray he does.

This blog is based on questions 62 and 69 in my book “ANSWERS for “The Hope That Is In You.” that has answers to more than 100 questions Christians are frequently asked.  Are you afraid of those hard questions your friends and family member ask that you can’t answer?  Here is a reference you can carry to answer those “hard” questions. http://yourchristiananswers.com

Why should I consider believing Bible Creation instead of Atheist Evolution?

I recently attended lectures at the Carlisle library titled: “Science & Religion: Lessons from History for the 21st Century” taught by a Shippensburg College professor who is a firmly committed Evolutionist.  He made presentations of the historical context of Evolution vs. Creation and explained how Evolution works.

Some opponents of Biblical Creation portray it opposed to science.  Creationists are not opposed to science, but believe it is not reliable to predict past events because it is interpretative nature.  All so-called scientific theories are not the same.  Of these four: 1) Evolution, 2) Einstein’s Relativity, 3) Atomic Theory, and 4) Quantum Theory, only Evolution cannot be directly investigated in the present. Evolution hypothesizes past events that cannot be observed today because we live in the present This limitation of science, requires testing and verification by repeated experiment eliminates “Molecules to Man Evolution” as a scientific theory.  It should be called philosophy or a model of the past NOT science.  Even if evolutionary scientists proved macroevolution in a laboratory, which they haven’t, it only shows what’s possible NOT what happened.  We don’t have the past; we can’t prove the past with certainty, it’s gone.  Therefore, reconstruction of history is a non-scientific exercise. However, it’s done every day in courtrooms all over the US.  We use scientific data to reconstruct the crime, but the past is NOT PROVEN only hypothesized.  When evidence is weak or contradictory, we get a jury that can’t reach a verdict of guilt or innocence.  Two groups of jurors look at the SAME evidence and came to opposite conclusions.  This problem of “same evidence, different conclusions”  is the nature of the origins debate.  Different people with different presuppositions look at the same evidence and come to opposite conclusions.  People may believe in either one, but because Atheists cannot accept God, they MUST believe in Evolution.  Some will avoid the Abiogenesis problem by starting with Panspermia; life brought here by Aliens or a meteor.

The Creation model seems very alien to most people educated in US school systems since public schools only teach Evolution. I once felt that way too. After becoming a Christian in 1977, I confronted a dilemma. All my science education taught me Evolution was a fact. As I read Genesis, it was apparent that the Lord created the world in six days a short time ago. For the first time, I studied the ‘other’ side by authors like Henry Morris, Duane Gish, John Whitcomb, Ken Ham, and Gary Parker. Previously I’d only been exposed to Creation taught as a caricature by those that didn’t believe it. In three years of study, I evolved from an Atheistic Evolutionist into a convinced “Young Earth Creationist.” I urge everyone who has been only taught Evolution to look seriously at the “other side.” If you don’t change your mind at least, you will have an understanding of Creation.  A good source to see the impossibility of Atheistic Evolution is my book: “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!  Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE.”

Biblical reasons for the Young Earth Creation Position!

As we begin a new year, I felt it appropriate that I start with two Biblical reasons why I take the “Young Earth Creation” (YEC) position. I do NOT take it because of science since science is an interpretation of evidence, and can change as new evidence appears. I use ONLY Biblical reasoning when someone asks about my “Young Earth” position. Science does, in fact, verify the young Earth, but that’s not the question I’ll answer here. The two Biblical reasons are:

1) The Bible is clear that death was a direct result of Adam’s sin, yet all the “old Earth” positions have death in the creation long before Adam’s sin because they accommodate the long ages REQUIRED for Evolution. Their proponents argue that the death that came by Adam was only spiritual death, however, then you have to explain how we can have a better place in the new Heaven and Earth than Adam had if animal death was present in Eden. Remember in the new creation (a restored Eden); “the lion will lie down with the lamb.”  All the animals will be herbivores. That could not happen in the “old Earth” world before Adam appeared because animals would have killed and eaten each other. God would have used death and struggle as a POSITIVE process to gain improvement in all the old Earth scenarios. Death then would be a creative process employed by God. That’s what Evolution and NOT what the Bible says about death. A God, who uses death as a creative force, is NOT the God of Scripture!!!

2) At the end of each day of creation, God says his creative process is good. At the end of the sixth day, Scripture states: “Then God saw everything that He hath made, and behold it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31 EVERYTHING was VERY GOOD. This expression implies a perfect Creation with no sin, death, rebellion, etc.  Most “old Earth” processes have the fall of Satan, death, sin, and all other kinds of imperfection present before the end of day six. That would imply that the clear statement of Scripture either wasn’t “everything that He had made” or it wasn’t “very good.” In the last chapter of Revelation, Jesus says: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” No more death! Everything is “very good.” You can’t have any form of imperfection before the end of the sixth because its presence would be in direct conflict with the clear words of Scripture “everything was very good.”

How do you get an age of 6,000 years from the Bible?

The Bible gives a chronological account of history starting at the beginning. If you count back using the genealogies and from known history, you get a creation date of 4004 BC. Bishop Ussher calculated this from the genealogies in Genesis. So, the total age of the Universe is slightly more than 6000 years.

Creation’s Young Earth and an “Old Looking” Universe

There are at least three explanations that Creationists have used to explain how this Universe that looks millions or billions of years old can be only 6,000 years young: 1) Young Earth Cosmology, 2) Creation Fully Formed and 3) Decreasing Light Speed.

1) Young Earth Cosmology. The newest one developed by Dr. Russ Humphreys is the most satisfactory. He proposes using Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and changing the assumptions from the “Big Bang” model to derive a young universe. The foundation of “Big Bang” cosmology is Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. To get the equations of the theory to work for a Big Bang a series of assumptions (parameters) have to be accepted. These are; the Universe contains no boundaries, size is infinite, it has no edge, it has no center of mass, it has a uniform distribution of matter, and there is no net gravity effect. These assumptions are in direct contradiction to the observations we make in the Universe. For example, it is VERY lumpy and does NOT have a uniform distribution of mass. When you set the parameters in Einstein’s theory to conform to Humphries model you will get an expanding Universe that looks old but is young. This Young Earth Cosmology is described in the book “Starlight and Time” by Dr. Russ Humphries. The other two are decreasing the speed of light and Creation with an appearance of age.

2) Creation Fully Formed. A second explanation is that God made the creation fully functioning, and the light from long distances was put in place at the moment of creation. Everything is complete from the very start.

3) Decreasing Light Speed. Finally, the third is that when God created light on day one, the speed of light was almost infinite but has slowed to the current speed today. If this is true then using light speed to measure distance is not feasible.

Incidentally, 90% of the mass needed for the Big Bang model is missing. Astronomers call it cold, dark matter; can’t see it, can’t find it but it MUST be there if the Big Bang is real, incredible faith, but poor science.

4) Is Time Eternal?

God existed in eternity without space/matter/time. The first verse of Genesis indicates the first thing God did was start time. “In the beginning,” time starts first, and then God creates the physical Universe. In eternity, there was nothing but God. Einstein’s Theory of Relativity indicates time had a beginning. Time is NOT ETERNAL; it has a beginning and will have an end.

Dinosaurs and Men were together in History!

Museum

The two most common questions asked at my workshops and seminars are: “Where do the dinosaurs fit in the Biblical calendar?” and “Is there any evidence that men encountered dinosaurs?” Even many Christians are misled by this evolutionary propaganda that dinosaurs are extinct for 65 million years. Dinosaurs were created on day six with all the other land animals and lived at peace in Eden. All creatures ate fruits and vegetables. Not until some time after the fall and definitely after the flood do animals begin to kill and eat each other to survive. The dinosaurs survived well before the flood in the lush garden paradise, and they grew gigantic because reptiles continue to grow as long as food is available. The 100-year-old alligator is awesome!

We have fossils of other enormous creatures from the pre-flood world (dragonflies with a 3-foot wingspread, 12-inch cockroaches, 6-foot tall rabbits, giant sloth’s, etc.). When God told Noah about the coming flood, he told Noah to take two of each “kind” of land-dwelling, air-breathing animal on the ark, including each “kind” of dinosaurs. But weren’t they too big? Dinosaurs hatch from eggs, and the largest dinosaur eggs are about the size of a football. So even the giant T-Rex was once the size of a small dog soon after it hatched. Each “kind” would represent great variety. For example, a pair of dogs would serve the whole dog kind including wolves, coyotes, dingoes, etc. Not two Great Danes, two Poodles, two Daschund, two Timber Wolves, two Chihuahua, two whatever…

When Noah’s flood was over, the earth changed radically. The lush vegetation was gone, the climate was more severe and predatory behavior, animals killing other animals for food, became dominant. The dinosaurs became extinct because of these new conditions.

In the Bible Science Newsletter, a publication that ceased in the 1990s, there was an article documenting human contact with dinosaurs in 13th and 14th century Europe. Many civilizations have legends of “Dragons” that sound like dinosaurs. In the American west, the native peoples have a legend of a creature called the Thunderbird. Until the 1950’s most anthropologists studying Native Americans scoffed at this legend. There were even some reports of cowboys in the early 1800s seeing this creature. In the mid-1950’s fossils were found of a flying reptile, now named Quetzalcoatlus that could be the legendary Thunderbird.

There is an animal living in central Africa called Mokele Mbembe whose description, by the native peoples, sounds like a dinosaur. I asked an evolutionist recently: “If we found a living dinosaur, wouldn’t evolution be falsified?” He said: “Of course not we would just have another living fossil.” Evolutionists will never admit to their theory being in trouble because they have nowhere else to go. Living fossil, incidentally, is an oxymoron. Fossils are by definition stone pictures of dead creatures.

The dinosaurs were created at the same time as Adam, lived in the garden, many died in Noah’s flood, and those that came off the Ark became extinct quickly because of the post-flood weather conditions.
