Basic Truths Revealed in Genesis

  

     God is in the beginning and, therefore, before the beginning. There is no past or future but a continual ever presence from his everlasting perspective. God’s infinite wisdom guarantees man’s finite knowledge and man’s transient temporal existence. Although it is not a prerequisite for God and his relationship with men, God has made himself evident to men in the physical universe. Psalms 19:1-3 – The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.


     For a man to say there is no God (Psalm 14:1 & 53:1) is a statement that reveals man’s ignorance as well as the fact man is not endowed with all knowledge. Psalms 14:1 –The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalms 53:1–The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

     

     Although we know that those who worship God must worship him in spirit and in truth, this does not mean God’s visible witness is diminished. It simply means the method whereby worship with God is made possible is accomplished through his Spirit. Remember, God is neither restricted by his spiritual nature nor does creation limit his omnipotent and sovereign abilities. God is transcendent which means space, time, and matter do not affect the actions of Providence. 


     Therefore, while in the Genesis account God shielded himself from his physical creation, it was nonetheless necessary because man even in a state of innocence could still not look upon God and live.

God’s existence, before creation, involved the fellowship between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.


     God’s existence is not a matter of debate, question, or even apologetics but faith. This faith is created in two ways. One is by reading the Bible. The other is by the Holy Spirit enlightening a person’s mind. Therefore one can only understand God through the eyes of faith, not experience or any combination of human sensory extrapolation— “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:3) and “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20.


     So without attempting to convince his readership otherwise, God assumes his audience accepts the reality of his existence. Since Genesis is not only the book of beginnings, this objective historical treatise is the origin and bedrock of any believer’s faith. Therefore, if one does not accept the opening words of Genesis 1, one cannot know God.

“The search for knowledge and understanding of the physical universe and of the living things that inhabit it should be conducted under conditions of intellectual freedom, without religious, political, or ideological restrictions. . . Freedom of inquiry and dissemination of ideas require that those so engaged be free to search where their inquiry leads . . . without political censorship and without fear of retribution in consequence of unpopularity of their conclusions. Those who challenge existing theories must be protected from retaliatory reactions.” (Resolution from The National Academy of Sciences, 1976).

Author’s Comments. . .


With blatant hypocrisy the National Academy of Sciences not only endorses the scientific teaching of evolution but condemns creationism. Not even the teaching of the two origin models would be allowed side by side. The atheist's greatest fear would be that people would actually see how unscientific and dishonest evolution is and how creationism fits best the cosmology of the universe as well as man’s beginnings. Government has no business teaching our children!

His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it:  and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.   Ps. 19:6


ORIGIN OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE (WHO?) 

Colossians 1:16-17— For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17.And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.


GOD'S MEANS OF CREATION (WHAT?)  BY HIS WORD JESUS CHRIST

God created everything by his word--Jesus Christ: John:1-3, 14 –In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2. The same was in the beginning with God. 3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 14. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


SPECIFICS:


God’s method of creation (from what?)

Ex-nihilo—from ‘nothing’ and in six literal days

Hebrews 11:3—Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Psalm 33:6—By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 9. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.

Exodus 20:11—For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.


Time since creation (when?) 

Over 6,000 years ago

According to biblical chronology, which contains no gaps by the way, a brief period of time for man’s origins cancels out the eons needed for man’s evolutionary beginnings. The Gap Theory is nothing more than an unbeliever’s attempt to accommodate evolutionary history with the sacred Word of God. Like oil and water, they will never mix.


Location of the physical universe (where?)

According to God’s eternal counsel

Genesis 1:1--In the beginning God created the heaven

and the earth.  

The Earth is the center of God's activity of all that is going on in the universe.  Sin was introduced into the equation of entropy, or the death and destruction of all things.  Location, longitude-latitude-minutes-seconds, and time itself began here on earth.  The circular shape of the earth and therefore the universe, with its directions of north-east-south-west, had its  compass re-affirmed long before the 'flat-earthers' were in the majority and observation and empiricism had proved them otherwise.  The idea of multiple universes is the product of evolution and the belief that WE ARE ALONE.  For if the atheist really accepted the person of Jesus Christ, he would realize that WE ARE NOT ALONE in the universe.

God is all knowing, present everywhere, and all powerful (motivation, intent?) 

As God, He does all things according to the good pleasure of His counsel

Revelation 4:11—Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

1. Ramapithecus

First Mistake Taught as Truth for 40 years

center—illustration obtained from video lecture series by Mike Riddle on “The Origin of Humans” 

right—from 1965 Time-Life’s Early Man parade of progression by Rudolph Zallinger 

 

THE VARIOUS APPEARANCES OF RAMAPITHECUS (SIVAPITHECUS)

    The lie that evolutionist’s perpetuated for 40 years in school textbooks was finally exposed for the fraud it was. Ramapithecus was found in Ethiopia in 1970. Appearing alive, a Baboon revealed the same dental structure and morphology this creature possessed 14 million years ago (an age arbitrarily assigned to this creature by the evolutionist). The evolutionists eventually dropped this creature from the human line as they discovered Ramapithecus was nothing more than an Orangutan. Remember, it was taught as TRUTH for 40 years! 

    Imagine drawing a whole creature from some jaw fragments and teeth while speculating on its mode of mobility. Add to that, assigning an arbitrary age of 14,000,000 yrs. before radiometric dating was shown to be flawed in dating once living organisms . . . Amazing!


RAMAPITHECUS


AGE

14,000,000 years old—This age was arbitrarily assigned long before more accurate dating methods were discovered

TIME IT WAS TAUGHT AS 'TRUTH'

Discovered in 1930 and was taught that it was an early human ancestor for 40 years (1970) 

FOSSILS DISCOVERED

aw fragments and teeth

APPEARANCE 

Tremendous evolutionary and artistic license were granted in order for us to understand what this creature ‘might’ have looked like.

THE LIE THAT UNMASKED RAMAPITHECUS 

In 1970, in Ethiopia, it was discovered that a living baboon possessed the same dental structure and morphology as did this supposed ancient human ancestor. Discovered to be an Orangutan it was later dropped from the human line.

2. Piltdown Man

Second Mistake Taught as Truth for 50 Years

PILTDOWN MAN 


AGE 

500,000 years old and believed to be an intermediate link. This exaggerated age was later discovered to be only several hundred years old. Again, this age was arbitrarily assigned long before more sure dating methods were established

DATE OF DISCOVERY 

1908 and 1915. Taught as truth by the evolutionists for 50 years

FOSSILS DISCOVERED 

Portion of human skull and portion of ape-like jaw

THE LIE THAT UNMASKED PILTDOWN MAN 

It was proven to be a fraud. When the real bones were examined it was discovered the skull was chemically stained to give the appearance of age, while the teeth were filed down.

Hesperopithecus

NEBRASKA MAN


AGE 

1,000,000 years old—This age was arbitrarily assigned long before more precise dating methods were known

DATE OF DISCOVERY

Even though an extinct pig’s (similar to a Peccary or wild pig) tooth was discovered in 1922 ‘somehow’ the artists and evolutionists created a whole skeleton from this fraudulent find. This phantom hominid was made famous in the Scopes Monkey Trial held in 1925

FOSSILS DISCOVERED 

The tooth of an extinct pig

APPEARANCE

Believe it or not the evolutionists actually had Nebraska Man, his environment, wife, and entire family depicted from the single fossil of a pig .

THE LIE THAT UNMASKED NEBRASKA MAN 

The tooth of an extinct pig! “It was the first time a pig had made a monkey out of a man.”

4. JAVA MAN

Java Man and His Fraudulent Origins

IMAGE ABOVE

Eugene Dubois, the ardent evolutionist (1858-1940), the island of Java was the source of Dubois’ finds (Solo River, near the village of Trinil), Dubois’ archeological booty, and the purposeful, subjective reconstruction of Java Man to have an ape-like appearance (compliments of Getty Images) 


Starting from introducing his will (choice, or “free-will”) into the mix of how he came to be, man introduces more than one alternative to the creation account we find in Genesis 1 and 2. After all, choice implies at least another opposing view[1]—a view, by the way, which is in direct opposition to acknowledging Christ as Creator. Actually, the idea of debate, or disputation,[2] comes from a rejection of the truth and the substitution of man’s will in place of God’s will. 

     To acknowledge means to agree that what IS self-evident IS obvious and also obviously true. By establishing himself as the center of all things, man exalts himself as God thereby making all the rules, while at the same time rejecting the obvious—Jesus Christ as Creator of ALL things, visible and invisible.  

     If a man’s view of origins is contrary to biblical creationism, he will attempt to explain his origins through naturalistic cause and effect. Therefore, naturalism, augmented by the Greek formula of induction known as the scientific method, with its path of ‘truth’ discovery rests in hypothetical formulation, observation, testing and a re-statement, or further amplification, of the original hypothesis (a theory needing investigation). 

     A rejection by man of the supernatural, miraculous, invisible, transcendent, intangible, incomparable, and eternal is ultimately a rejection of what man can’t see or quantify. To put it simply, God was clear how he made man, what man was made from, how long it took God to make man, man’s purpose, AND, finally, how man is distinct from all other “kinds” God created. 

     When Eugene Dubois, and others like him, reject God’s unmistakable witness of man’s origins and gives a listening ear to evolutionists like Charles Darwin, Ernst Haeckel, Karl Vogt, and Alfred Russell Wallace, it’s safe to conclude they agree with their protégés. Eugene Dubois also produced the same bitter fruit from the corrupt tree of human evolution as did his predecessors. 

     Dubois’ unteachable spirit is revealed from a eulogy Arthur Keith gave at the time of Dubois’ demise in 1940. Keith stated:

"... an idealist, his ideas being so firmly held that his mind tended to bend facts rather than alter his ideas to fit them."[3]



FOOTNOTES    

[1]  Prov. 14:12; 16:25—There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

[2]  While the ultimate objective of debate against the truth (Rom. 1:29) may be trumpeted as a discovery path of the 'scientist,' in reality it is simply man’s attempt to synthesize, or amalgamate (mix), truth with error.

[3]  Foley, Jim, “Biographies: Eugene Dubois,” The Talk Origins Archive, Copyright 1996-2011, accessed 2/22/16 <http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/homs/edubois.html> last updated May 31, 2011 In the author’s section entitled “Creation and Human Evolution,” Foley asserts if evolution had occurred there would be variation within hominid fossils because of the theory of evolution which says man is progressing toward a higher state. Creation claims that man has remained unchanged from the direct oversight God has had in man’s original creation—God’s direct, personal involvement in making man from the dust of the ground, and breathing into his nostrils the breath of life, and man becoming a living soul. Plants and land animals were indirectly brought forth ("Let the earth bring forth grass the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind") from the earth, while all aquatic creatures came from marine waters, including all fowl . . . All by the indirect oversight of their Creator—Jesus Christ. With man however his creation was unique and direct. Man IS different than the animals, not just in creation, but in his soul.  Man possesses a soul or moral conscience when compared to an animal’s soul which lacks such distinction, see Eccl. 3:21.  Man also has a spirit.  The distinction between man’s moral conscience and that which is lacking in animals is what made Jesus cast Legion out of the man and into the swine where they rushed into the sea and perished—Mark 5:13; Luke 8:33.  In addition man has a capacity to reason--acknowledge the self-evident truths of Christ in creation as it declares in Romans 1:21.  Then there is man's intellect or man’s gifting and inspiration given to him by God—Job 32:8.  


JAVA MAN

  

AGE

500,000 years old—This age was arbitrarily determined long before more accurate dating methods were known

DISCOVERER, LOCATION, AND DATE OF 'FIND'

Eugene Dubois—Java in the East Indies—1891 

FOSSILS DISCOVERED

Ape-like (Gibbon) skull cap and 50’ away a human thigh bone

THE LIE THAT UNMASKED PITHECANTHROPUS ERECTUS 

Java had not been geologically explored. For 30 years Dubois had kept secret the truth there were two human skulls in proximity to where the human thighbone was discovered. The lie the evolutionists hung their hopes on was a Gibbon skullcap not fossils from two additional humans that would dispel Dubois’ fraud for what it really was.  In each of the above cases the age was completely wrong. These inflated dates had nothing to do with science. They were given to support the humanistic worldview of man's evolutionary origins.

5. NEANDERTHAL MAN

IMAGE ABOVE   

Neanderthal man was nothing more than a man—a Homo sapien. Left to right we have a skull reconstruction and then an artist’s conception of what this individual was speculated to have looked like—c'mon is that objective science? 


AGE 

130,000 to 135,000 years old. This date is still too old for man's presence on this planet according to the Bible's chronology

LOCATION AND DATE OF FIND

The Neander Valley near Dusseldorf, Germany in 1856

FOSSILS DISCOVERED

12 nearly complete skeletons

THE LIE THAT UNMASKED THE 'MISSING LINK'

Marcel Boule, an avowed evolutionist, when constructing the skeletons made the specimens very ape-like. Nearly twelve complete skeletons, which would represent 5,000 generations, were recovered from 26 separate sites. We are talking over 95,000 years these supposed ‘human ancestors’ lived and all we can recover are 12 nearly complete skeletons! There should have been hundreds, if not millions, of these fossils evident given this vast expanse of time. Another interesting fact regarding this “missing link” was the discovery that Neanderthal Man’s brain capacity was 200 centimeters larger than mans. This little-known anatomical difference was later emphasized as the evolutionists attempted to foist Neanderthal Man on the public conscience. The real bones had been constructed anatomically incorrect. 

CONCLUSION 

“Detailed comparison of Neanderthal skeletal remains with those of modern humans have shown that there is nothing in Neanderthal anatomy that conclusively indicates locomotor, manipulative, intellectual, or linguistic abilities inferior to those of modern humans.”[1]
