creation vs evolution + my thoughts || 5 billion years?...

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

I was at the library just wandering around and saw this book on Evolution. I was curious. I wanted to see the other perspective. 

it was interesting. So this guy was trying to figure out what he believed - and even then, he was stating some things as a FACT, not just a personal assumption or belief. 

I didn't want to just go on what any one person is saying. So I did some research. (which is a challenge in itself considering how many articles written from biased perspectives there are out there). I just wanted facts. tbh, those are hard to find.

so I googled: How old is the world?

here's what i got:

^^ I have no problem with people stating their options. but when you google something like this and get this answer as a FACT - something is obviously wrong.
wanna know the chances of winning the national Powerball Lottery every day for 365 days in a row?
okay now, this is compared to life starting on it's own. just one thing...instead of just 2,881 zeros (above) imagine the chances as 1 out of 1,201,000 . . . then add 10,837 more zeros.
those are the chances of 18,000 letters of DNA forming together in the correct order and starting life. Not to mention the animo acids needed (and yet, scientists haven't been able to create the correct ones needed to start life. also, if any oxygen is present amino acids cannot be formed and yet, the earth shows that oxygen has been around since the beginning. sooo. how could life have formed?) Not to mention the cell membrane needed. Not to mention the chances of the protein having to be correct. Not to mention that heat is necessary to form proteinoids, but heat destroys proteins. as well as who knows what else we don't even know about. 

basically. i've arrived at the conclusion that...it's impossible. yet, scientists are still saying this. saying it as a fact that the world and everything on it is the result from a supposed chemical explosion.

I dunno about you, but it seems to me that maybe this "missing link" they are searching for isn't some intermediate creature...maybe the missing link is God. The link the world has lost as it's grown further and further from Him. Impossible for random chance? I think so anyways. Impossible for God?
"For with God nothing will be impossible." Luke 1:37
*this info is from online, books and mostly personal rambles. i am in no way picking on anyone, just a couple things i've found on my own journey and research. feel free to agree, or disagree!

if you survived this post, go you! what are your thoughts on the subject?
what are you looking forward to the most this summer?

  1. "Maybe the missing link is God" - that's a beautiful conclusion!

    I know! It can be so hard to get unbiased, actually factual information. I suppose various Christian groups disagree with each other over Earth's age as well,but honestly, is it too hard to say, "We don't know"? What about (I like saying this one) "I don't know, I WASN'T THERE"?
    Instead, various people present opinion as fact, and unwary people take it as such.

    Sorry, I may have repeated myself a bit in this ramble :)

    Also, you seem to have done a lot of research, particularly into what looks like quite advanced biochemistry (to my untrained eyes). Well done converting it to regular language!!

    1. aw, thanks, girl! <33

      oh, totally. Especially on the internet. It takes a lot of research with all sorts of point of views. I'd agree, but also, God has given us ages for a reason in the Bible so we have been able to estimate the earth to be around 6,000 years old (approx. I'd like to calculate this myself some day but ya know lol) Often if you'd answer that (being, we don't know) to an evolutionist they'd say you don't have a reason for your belief. Which is, of course as we call it - faith. It's a fine line - it's good to know the facts, but you don't have to know everything because faith in God always wins. :D

      haha don't worry about it - I like rambling XD haha tbh I've just taken info from all around and what I've been able to pick up (some of it is so confusing tho :P) so i'm glad to hear it made sense! aw, thanks so much!! <33

    1. I have! I actually have another course (I have several actually lol) with him. His is pretty good..but I prefer my other course. Ken Ham can be kinda confusing sometimes, although he has some good points. :D

    2. He does like rabbit looping to add humor, haha!

  3. I agree with you! I was just reading Defeating Darwinism by Phillip E Johnson in school, and it goes over some really good points about evolution vs. creation. :)

    1. oooohhh cool! it's great when you can find a course that actually makes sense. sometimes science can be soooooo confusing. I just love my course tho! It's been cool to research some other perspectives as well and share them with you all XD

    2. Yeah, I enjoy it! I agree, it's interesting to hear and read about other's worldviews and opinions. Like, some people who think we just evolved from a chemical soup would say there's no such thing as sin. So then where did our moral sense of right and wrong come from? I just think that sort of thing is interesting. :p

    1. aw, thanks so much! I'm glad it makes sense. there was so much info I wanted to put in here it was hard to know what to put in :P XD

      omw yes to all of those things - especially the school part xD

  5. It's so sad that it is stated in fact, and it's not right that kids can get taught evolution and school but not a Christian world view as well!
    When I was younger my brother and I would call it EVILoution...lol.

    1. so agreed. It's so mixed up - I mean, sure, teach Evolution but Creationism should be equally treated and taught as well (in my perspective anyways). lol!! that's hilarious XD thanks for commenting, Gray! <33

  6. Well put, Sarah! Informative, and still easy to read. I'm totally agreed with you on this...I'm sure you already knew that, though. ☺ But my goodness; I had no idea about Google's telling of it. Wow. Thanks for sharing your research!!
    Lovely pictures, as always!

    1. thanks, Grace!! so glad to hear that - sometimes it can be super confusing xP xD hahaa, totally. IKR? I just randomly googled it and was sort of surprised (although, I guess we shouldn't be. :P) it was stated in such a factly way. aw, totally! <33

  7. YASSSS! "It takes more faith to believe that everything came from nothing, than to believe there is a God who made it", I LOVE THAT! I'm with you. I don't get how so many people actually believe that!??
    and-i survived.

    1. totally agreed. IKR? I guess everyone has to have something to believe in...it's a confusing messed up thing. :P

  8. I am slightly in awe of you right now. I am christian but I am a very scientific type cristian where I kind of do believe that the things like that that scientists say (and I still consider myself christian). I love this post though. Amazing job!

    1. ahh. it's a hard thing..but it's good to know /why/ you believe in something...maybe you should do some research into the subject to find out /why/ you believe some of the things scientists say. it's a good thing to go through what you believe to see if you really believe it, or are just blindly following...just because that's what you've always believed in or heard. aw, thanks! I'm praying for you, Nabila! <33

  9. Hello Sarah! I've been reading your sisters blog for a long while, and I finally discovered yours! xD
    Great post, by the way. I've been doing chemistry and physics for school, and actually the 'Big Bang theory' is impossible because it goes against the First Law of Thermodynamics: That matter cannot be created or destroyed. Concluding in the fact that a supernatural force (God) had to have created everything in the very beginning.
    On a lighter note, I really like your blog and enjoy reading your posts. Keep up the good work!

  12. Sooo good and very true! I mean I get that evolutionists could say, "Well it takes some faith to believe in evolution, just like it takes faith for you to believe in God," but believing in evolution requires more than just faith - it requires blindness and just plain stubbornness. Sure, believing in God takes faith, and sometimes that can be hard - but the Biblical records are actually confirmed by science and common sense. And like you showed the chance of life happening - and then that chance would have to repeat over and over in precise ways to make precise details of animals and people (not to mention lots of things would have to happen at once - what's a brain without a heart?). It's just... yeah. XD Once again, lovely post! :D

    1. Right, but really, they don't have any facts. It's soooo weird. They say they have the facts, but reallly they don't. So many times they say "it's a mystery" like, whaaaa? you are gonna put all your trust in a mystery? it's a messed up thing. right!! I mean, random chance creating thinking, breathing things? Things that have emotion? it's pretty crazy and mind blowing. aww, thank you!!
