Pre-Flood World

Disclaimer. The Canopy Theory is very controversial in creationist circles and the two best-known Creationist organizations, AIG and ICR, no longer support it. I’ve included it here because it explains two pre-flood conditions, 1) gigantism of living organisms and extreme longevity. We have fossils of huge creatures from the fossil record and very long lifespans recorded in the Bible. The increased atmospheric pressure (hyperbaric conditions) before the flood would explain both of these! Since all models of the pre-flood world are historic science, they are subject to change as more research is published and can never be absolute.

The world before Noah’s flood was very different. It was a lush garden, tropical from pole to pole. The “canopy” model places a water vapor layer above the Earth’s atmosphere. Scripture tells us God separated the “waters from the waters” on Creation day two and placed waters above the Earth and on its surface. Pre-flood there was no rain or clouds, and the weather was uniform from pole to pole because of the greenhouse effect of the canopy. The increased atmospheric pressure of a vapor layer of water above the Earth would have allowed a significant amount of condensation at the end of each night cycle. This very heavy dew along with the “mist” would have been adequate to water the ground, so there was no need for rain on the Earth. The weather report would have been the same every day “The high today will be about 75 and the low tonight will be about 60, there will be about 1 inch of water condensed on the ground overnight.”

This water above could compress the atmosphere and create both much larger creatures and greatly increased longevity. In laboratory conditions, bacterial lifespans are increased ten times by this increased pressure. We call these bariatric conditions. Our 70 to 90-year life span would increase to 700 to 900 years.

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 material in this blog is from the first chapter in my book ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You.”

Charlie Liebert’s work as an Author: Three books, six stories and more coming.

I started my career as an author at age 70 in 2012. I’ve published two Christian Evangelism books: Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! and ANSWERS For, “The Hope That Is In You.” MY third book, Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead! will be published in June 2017 I’ve also written six stories, listed below, that are available on Kindle. In the fall of 2102 I was teaching a Christian Business Men’s group a series of lessons on personal evangelism. Week after week I heard a common refrain, “I don’t share the Gospel because of all questions I can’t answer that my unbelieving friends and family ask me.” When Jesus was asked questions, he frequently answered them with another question to expose the person’s motives and presuppositions. He was using a strategy anyone can use to get to the Gospel without directly answering their query. Based on 12 years of teaching experience, I developed lesson plans for each evangelism lesson. I. After I had finished teaching, each week, some of the men asked if I would give them the copies of my plans so they could share these concepts with other believers. As I shared this experience with one of my spiritual mentors, Bob said, “Why don’t you write a book explaining this concept? So, I began to write Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! After a lot of Bible study, I saw Jesus used this approach, answering a question with a question, in dealing with the Pharisees, the rich young ruler and many others. After I’d completed an outline and several chapters as, I discussed this concept with a Christian brother, and he said, ”… but eventually, you need to answer their questions.”

In the middle 1980s, I built a web page that allowed readers to ask questions that I’d answer. After more than 20 years of Q and A, I had answers to over 100 common questions the world asks Christians. So my second book began, ANSWERS For, “The Hope That Is In You.” In addition to QandA, I added analysis of the differences between Biblical Creation and Atheistic Evolution. Both books went live in mid-2015.

As I read ANSWERS during one of the proof steps, I realized although I’d been critical of Evolution, I hadn’t made a strong case against it. So book three is underway, Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s DEAD! The three miracles are Magic, something coming into being from nothing, Frankenstein, living organisms coming from dead chemicals and Uphill Molasses, the upward flow of the ever-increasing complexity of Evolution in a Universe that is running down.

I have also written six stories available on Amazon’s Kindle.

Helene [Hel-lain-a] at Mama Henney’s Boarding School for Girls. My grandmother’s adventures as a 16-18-year-old at an all girls school for aristocrats in 1900 northern Italy.

Rosemarie, Kristallnacht Transformation. My twice Jewish aunt, with a Jewish father and a Jewish husband, amazing survival during the Holocaust in Germany 1937-1945.

Yellowstone’s Child. Kidnapped at 10 with complete amnesia she recovers her memory at 22. Rated “G.” Great story for teens.

One Android, 399 lives – 59th Street Terror Attack Kills 399. Fictional terrorist attack in NY

The Memory Tree, A Christmas Story. A great read for families at Christmas gatherings. It takes 15-20 minutes to read. For all ages. It clearly presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Curse of the Witch of Zahlendorf. A 17th-century German folk tale told by my father that includes the 1922 fulfillment of the curse.

Summaries of these stories are at my new web site that is under construction,

My Christian witness was thwarted by a question I couldn’t answer.

While teaching a Bible study about evangelism in 2012, I noticed many of my Christian friends were unable to bring the gospel to the unbelievers they encounter every day. This problem resulted in publishing my first book with a simple strategy to witness “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!” Revised and updated it’s available at

Why were they so hesitant to witness? When I asked them, the most common response was:

Because I can’t answer all the hard questions, they ask me like “Where did Cain get his wife? What happens to the native in the jungle that never heard the gospel, does he go to hell? Why do bad things happen to good people?” The Bible says, “Be ready to give an answer to the hope that is in you.” But I’m not ready! I can’t answer those questions! I just don’t know enough about the Bible or science or anything else! Help! I can’t witness!

If that’s you, I’m offering a plan to bring the gospel to your unbelieving friends and family without immediately answering those hard questions. None of us have all the answers. You have your faith and the Holy Spirit to guide you. You can become a confident, fearless witness for Christ if you use the personal evangelism plan put forth in my book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!

This personal evangelism strategy tackles the fear of responding to these questions with the approach Jesus used by discerning the questioner’s motive for their original question. He didn’t answer their questions but responded with questions to them! You do the same by determining a person’s willingness to hear the gospel by measuring their spiritual temperature. Are they cold, lukewarm or hot to hear the gospel? After you know their temperature, next share your personal testimony. You’ve gotten to the gospel and still haven’t answered the original question. The key is getting there before the question trips you up. You intentionally get to the gospel first; answers come second, if at all. After you have offered Christ, you may then answer their original question. If you put into practice this personal Christian evangelism strategy, you can expect three things to happen.

1) You will develop confidence in sharing the gospel like never before.

2) God will bring salvation to some of those you witness to, and you’ll see both his saving power and your weakness made strong in Christ.

3) Your faith will be made stronger by God’s working in you, “both to will and to do his good pleasure.”

Remember that although it is God who saves, he uses weak human vessels to take the precious gospel to the world.

Charlie’s second book ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You.” contains answers to more than 100 questions skeptics use to try to stump Christians. His third book, “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s DEAD!” is currently in the final editing process and will be published later this year.

YOU believe in Evolution by FAITH NOT FACTS!

Ever since Darwin wrote the “Origin of Species” in 1859 evolutionists have told the world that evolution was too slow to see since it took millions and millions of years. Now some of them, like the late Stephen J. Gould at Harvard, recognized the lack of transitional forms, well documented in the fossil record, creates a big problem for Evolution. Also, the mechanism of genetic mutation has failed to produce improvements needed to make evolution move forward. So they invented “punctuated equilibrium,” sudden rapid changes in genetic coding followed by long periods of stability. Now, they say, evolution is too fast to see. In either case, fast or slow, it’s NOT SEEN. Evolution not seen is an article of faith NOT science. Evolution or Creation are faith beliefs about the past that cannot be proven by science. Either God CREATED or everything came from nothing with the help of nobody. Which faith do you have?

In Earth magazine Nile’s Eldredge of the American Museum of Natural History published an article entitled What Drives Evolution. If you read carefully, you soon realize he admits that evolution has no working mechanism that all evolutionists accept. In fact, the geneticists and the paleontologists disagree completely. Some Geneticists now recognize that evolution can’t work by slow, gradual changes as Darwin proposed. The paleontologists continue to look for missing links that don’t exist. Therefore, Eldredge concludes evolution must happen in quick spurts followed by long periods of little change. He called this jerky Evolution “punctuated equilibrium.”  Author’s note: the term is an oxymoron! How can you punctuate something in equilibrium?

All evolutionists have great faith in Evolution because they can’t see it, can’t describe it, can’t find it, but know it must be there. You find many of them saying, “Evolution is a fact.” In some of my contacts with Evolutionists on college campuses they’ve told me they tell their students said: “…to shut up and believe it.” Toward the end of the article Eldridge states his FAITH in evolution: “I believe that this idea (punctuated equilibrium) will ultimately enable geneticists and paleontologists to agree on the form and content of that single evolutionary theory – a theory that must exist simply because life, in all its complexities and scales, from molecules to ecosystems, has had one single, integrated evolutionary history.” Eldredge let his theology, Atheism, dictate his science. He concludes, there cannot be a God that created; therefore, evolution MUST be TRUE. Evolution requires more faith to believe than Creation. Creation and the Bible are rooted in real, documented past events, not some unproven idea about history. Creationists are often called to account when letting their theology dictate their science but Eldredge must consider himself exempt because his faith, Atheism, dictates his science. Today only about half the US population believes in Evolution even though it’s been taught in our public education system as the only alternative to explain how we got here for more than 100 years. The Scopes “Monkey Trial” was in 1912.

Without 3 miracles Darwin’s Dead. The Impossibility of Evolution!

I just signed a contract to publish my third book, Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead! With a secondary title: Magic, Frankenstein and Uphill Molasses. In it I’ll expose the IMPOSSIBILITY of Evolution because:

  • Evolution is NOT science; it’s a faith statement about the past!
  • Evolution breaks three unbreakable scientific laws, and that’s impossible! Scientific law CAN’T ever be broken, and still be a law.
  • Evolution’s never been observed in a laboratory or the field. Dr. Richard Dawkins said. “Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed when it’s happening.”
  • The missing links are still missing,
  • There are some creatures whose behavior, design and incredible complexity Evolution can’t explain.
  • The history of Evolution contains many frauds. I’ll highlight two.

How do Evolution proponents address these issues? Denial, rationalization or just plain lying! Of all these issues the greatest failure is the violation of three scientific laws, the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics and the Law of Biogenesis. I summarize these three: Magic, Frankenstein, and Uphill Molasses.

Magic: We’ve all seen the magician pull the rabbit out of the “empty” hat. That’s an illustration of the violation of the 1st Law, something coming out of nothing. With the hat or the Universe, it’s either impossible or an illusion but, in any case, it’s not REAL. Something doesn’t ever come from nothing! Without this first miracle of magic, Evolution can’t happen!

Frankenstein: In Mary Shelley’s novel, Dr. Frankenstein takes dead men’s parts, assembles them and produces a living person. It’s a great story but we all know its fiction, yet Evolution would have us believe it happened. Evolution claims dead chemicals became living organisms. Life from dead stuff violates the Law of Biogenesis that says life comes only from life and life of only the same kind. Dogs don’t beget cats! Rats don’t arise from dirty rags! Without this second miracle, Frankenstein, Evolution can’t happen!

Uphill Molasses: The 2nd Law establishes the Universe is irreversibly running down. Since it is running down it must have been “wound up” at the beginning. Evolution is the opposite of this process. It advances to more complexity, diversity and new “higher” life forms. I chose uphill molasses because it moves slowly like Evolution and it doesn’t ever flow up a hill. Without this third miracle of molasses going uphill in a downhill world, Evolution can’t happen!

It’s true: “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s DEAD!” This book will settle the question, “Is Evolution possible?” In the mind of any intelligent, open-minded person the answer must be, “Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE!”

NOTE:   Charlie Liebert’s first book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! developed an effective personal Christian evangelism strategy to get past unbelievers questions and present the Gospel in all unbelievers one encounters. After a friend asked, “Well, shouldn’t you answer the questions?” I wrote a second book, ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You” which answers more than 100 questions commonly asked to stump or silence Christians.

Why I believe this BIG Universe is only 6,000 Years Old?

The age of the Universe is a major area of disagreement between Biblical Creationists and those that believe it is billions of years old. “Old Earthers” include Evolutionists, Atheistic, and religious, and Old Earth Creationists. I believe in a young Earth because of what the Bible says, but I want to understand it using science. Here are three scientific explanations that Young Earth Creationists use.

1) Decreasing the speed of light. When God created light on day one, the speed of light was almost infinite but has slowed to its current speed today making all distance measurements using light speed significantly overstated.

2) Creation with the appearance of age. Creation was made fully functioning, and the light from long distances was put in place at the moment of creation, just

3) Young Earth Cosmology developed by Dr. R. Humphreys, published in “Starlight and Time.” Using Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and changing the assumptions from the “Big Bang” model he creation of a young universe that appears old. To get the equations to work for the Big Bang a series of assumptions (parameters) have to be set in the equations. These are; the 1) Universe contains no boundaries, 2) size is infinite, 3) has no edge, 4) no center of mass, 5) uniform distribution of matter, and 6) no net gravity effect. These assumptions are in direct contradiction to scientific observations. For example, it is VERY lumpy and does NOT have a uniform distribution of mass. When you set parameters in Einstein’s theory to conform to observed science, you get a young expanding Universe that appears old.

Here are two Biblical reasons I believe in a “Young Earth”:

1) The Bible is clear that death is a direct result of Adam’s sin, yet allcause they are accommodatingGod would have used death and struggle as a POSITIVE process to make progress in all the old Earth scenarios. That’s what evolution and NOT what the Bible says about death. A God, who uses death, is NOT the God of Scripture!!!

2) At the end of each Creation day, God says his process is good. At the end of the sixth day, Scripture says: “Then God saw everything that He hath made, and behold it was very good.” EVERYTHING was VERY GOOD. This expression implies a perfect Creation with no sin, death, rebellion, etc. “Old Earth” processes have the fall of Satan, death, sin, and all other kinds of imperfection present before the end of day six implying that the clear statement of Scripture either wasn’t “everything that He had made” or it wasn’t “very good. You can’t have any sin before the end of the sixth day because it’s in direct conflict with the clear words of Scripture.

Lesson: A young Universe, about 6,000 years old, is both Biblically and Scientifically sound. Christians can believe it with confidence.
