In a recent documentary called “CREATIONISM: CONSPIRACY ROAD TRIP,” hosted by comedian Andrew Maxwell.    He took five creationist to the west coast of America to try and convince them that evolution rather than Creationism explains how we got here.  To say the least he failed miserably.

THE ROCK THAT NEVER COULD MOVE

Meet Bob the rock

The documentary was truly biased against the creationist.  As one contestant asked how many true creationist scientist were invited onto the documentary, I would say none. Within this group were five people from vatious backgrounds, but there was a least one person who was very knowledgable on creationism than the rest.  He offered up some really some good points.  I suspect that alot of what he offered up landed on the editors cutting floor  What was interesting was that at the end they visited a site  in Nevada which showed a spring flowing with bacteria that sprayed out various colours.  The scientist tried to persuade the group that all life could have arisen from such bacteria.   HOWEVER ALL EVOLUTIONIST LIKE TO CHEAT AND MOVE THE GOAL POST      They like to start where life has already been established and not where there theory demands they  begin.  The true place to start with has to be a humble piece of earth say a ROCK!!!  We shall call the ROCK “BOB.”      Say “hi” to BOB the humble ROCK! Now JOKING ASIDE BOB is TECHNICALLY dead , INANIMATE AND LIFELESS.  You can burn it, pour water over it, crush it , torture it with acid . Speak to it and try to converse with it.   You might even blow the rock up with TNT and make loads of little rocks.  You might try to reason with it and explain the complexities that it is truly alive and destined for greatness.    But BOB will remain a humble ROCK. NOW FOR EVOLUTION TO BE TRUE?

The rock would have to evolve.  Grow extremities, an  internal organ.  It would have to find itself some DNA to work with.  Acquire some form of higher brain function that it might use to make decisions.    It has to be able to reproduce and disseminate itself into the rest of civilisation.  Otherwise Bob must have the ability to make lots and lots of little BOBs.  If it can’t then Bob will become extinct as a species.  Not only that but Bob has to grow and change and make lots and lots of other species, millions in fact.

That means every creature should be able to trace its origins back to the humble rock.  In fact if evolution really was true we would expect to see rocks evolve into sentient beings every day of the week.  Has anyone seen Bob Lately?   Has he communicated his loneliness at not having a fellow rock to keep him company?  Because for the majority the whole matter of a HE and SHE would be a disadvantage.  Why start of life as a humble rock and then continue ones existence dependent on reproduction with another of the same species.  How much more would we expect to see poor BOB out there seeking a mate to make lots of little BOBS.  But then Bob would have to grow legs to get close to another rock, never mind all the other extra bits to make things happen. 

Except for a few instances life depends on a HE and a SHE to reproduce.    That takes a lot of biology to follow-up with.  What do they do if HE was not at the right evolutionary step to mate with a she?  Whoops no little ones to continue the species.

IN THE END THE EVOLUTIONIST HAS TO PROVE HOW SOMETHING THAT DID NOT EXIST BECOMES SOMETHING THAT DOES.  THAT SOMETHING THAT IS NOT ALIVE BECOMES SOMETHING WHICH IS ALIVE? 

FIRST CAUSE:

The complexities that are involved with life cannot simply be  the  product  of long periods of  time.    No matter how many millions of years that evolutionist attribute  to life.  If that life cannot have a beginning  ( A FIRST CAUSE) from something that is not alive , then it will never  grow, Even the theory that life started because some rock hit the earth which had bateria on  it.  The question still remain there had to be a point before which nothing existed.  So how did nothing become something?

A CREATOR WHO CREATED USING A SIMILAR TEMPLATE

At one point of the show they brought in a trained chimp, with the description that man has many similarities with it.  In reality all that this proved was that both were the result of a common creation.  As ape’s and chimps  were supposed to have been around the longest, they could not explain why humans are not behind the bars and the apes running the show.  In fact if anything the chain on the neck of the chimp trained or otherwise only proved its inability to go beyond its nature.  Over the years a lot has been done to stop owners from keeping chimps as pets.  They may look cute when they are young, but as they grow up they become less adapted to the home environment.  In the end man and chimps just cannot live together.  Even Michael Jackson found that out.

 Now when was the last time we saw a chimp or ape take a college degree, design and build for them something to benefit itself and the rest of the chimp world.  You mean no chimp mobile.  No articulation of some great poetic works.  No great paintings or literature.  They might mimic but they cannot create from scratch.    Its requires the imagination to go beyond , the sensitivity  to create tools and then use those tools to make bigger tools which in turn  can churn out something that no one has seen before.  Then improve on it to the betterment of that society.  The basic skills of a child truly exceed that of an adult chimp in every department.  The primate gets to a point where his education stops, but the human child just keeps going. No animal to date has had a consciousness of life beyond and a God who forgives.  When was the last time did anyone see a group of Apes congregate to pray  to God and seek help?

As for poor poor Bob the rock well he is still out there somewhere.  The wind the sun and the rain all play a part in keeping it occupied.  But the rock remains just a simply ROCK>>>   Even when the rock is crushed and made into something useful.  It never complains, never tries to argue and never gets up and walks away.   Only LIFE begets LIFE. In that arena God has proven himself over and over.  The giver and maker of life.  He alone established life and made it is what it is.   He commanded that everything should reproduce after its kind and so it was.

THE ARK THAT REFUSED TO TAKE THE WHALE

I think the most laughable highlight of this documentary was Noahs ark.  They went onto a small boat to discuss this issue with another scientist.  (dare I call him as scientist?)  The presentation was of a child toy that no where represented the true scale of the ark.  The major question that was asked was where did Noah put the WHALE. You heard right!!  The scientist wanted to know where Noah placed the humble whale on the Ark.  Had he read the account sea animals did not go onto the ark.  Then the arguement was debated that such a boat could not exist.  Yet every Boat until the invetion of Modern steel production was made of wood.  The ark was not design to sail but to floot which it did.  As God was the captain where that Boat went was his discretion.  But the Ark was not design to set sail but to become an ark of safety.

What is free will?

You wake up in the Morning.  Do you just lie there until someone tells you to get up?  Then do you wait until that voice tells who where to move too, the right side of the bed or the left?  Having got up, do you wait to be told what to put on or do you naturally make a choice as to which clothes to wear.

It’s that fundamental in nature that we make choices every single moment of the day and never think twice about it.  Choices are the basis of free will.  We have the capacity and rational to make logical or even illogical choices.   Will it be the green coat or the red coat?  My next door neighbour does not make my choices I do.  When we are young it might be mum or dad,.

Do we travel taking the bus or the car?  Do we go out the front door or the backdoor?  Do we lock the door or walk away with the door open?  Now we don’t wait to be told these things as adults, but we learn about these things as we grow up.  Having learned we come to appreciate the necessity of doing thinks.  We do them because they benefit us or make us happy.  It is the freedom to make those choices which is important. 

To obey the law or not to obey the law and we have the freedom to choose!. 

Now the opposite of free will are drones mindless robots that wait to be told when to do something.  They don’t make choices because they can’t, and they have no capacity or logic to do so.

Freedom to makes choices is a gift from God

God gave humans free will, and with it came the legal right to express dominion over this earth.  Now what man has done with it has been the issue of many a historical lecture.   Now the fact that God has given mankind the capacity and rational to think things out; and then act upon it is something which God deems sacred.  We were made that way for a purpose.  As such it is not his will to supersede by doing the thinking for us, because that would bring us back to lying on our beds waiting to be told when to get up.

Atheist will ask mockingly that if God is so powerful why does he not come down to solve all mankind’s problem.   However what they are really saying is God come down and show yourself so that we might believe.  Do some miracles and wonders so that you will convince us of you Majesty.  This is nothing more than tempting God to perform like some trained seal, or some circus clown juggling before a group of school kids.  However it also strikes at a deeper issue.  Whilst God has indeed intervened in many occasions it is also tempered with wisdom. 

Let me explain!!

God also has no intention in having the human race dancing like some puppet on strings.  He regards mans free will as sacrosanct, because only by having it will we learn.  Adam was Gods physical and spiritual head of Mankind.  He was Gods governor on this planet.  He gave him intelligence, a rational to see a problem and the thinking capacity to try and solve it.  He gave a heart to sympathise with the issue and seek a ways to improve it.  Does this mean that its hands of for God?  No God is very much involved in the day to day running of this planet.  But when it comes to his governor and thus mankind as a whole he will work within limitation. 

For example one nation wants to wage a war against another nation.  How does God stop it?  Does he stoop down and in some mighty demonstration physically restrain both nations as they close for battle and if so what would the consequences to free will and self determination?  Would God not suddenly become a referee blowing his whistle every time someone makes a  wrong choice?   

Then further to this what happens every time a dispute arises, every argument, and every conflict.  The call will be where  is the referee ; we need the referee to stop this.  In such a case would we ever learn to become the instrument in stopping it?  Would we ever learn the horror of what to avoid? Would we learn to choose peace instead of war?  God does not want mindless drones, he wants thinking people who can learn the values that God has laid down.  To make logical and righteous choices which were born out of experiences?

He may work through men to bring a diplomatic end of the war.  He may open the eyes of those who plan it to see the cost of such a war.   So God can and does work within our limitations to further his plans for good.  That might be the skill a surgeon in operating on a patient, or the compassion for the care of the elderly.

Free will is being given choices.  Just as Adam and Eve were given the choice of certain trees, we learn by been given choices.  At every turn those choices present themselves before us.  Thereby we GROW, LEARN EVALUATE, THINK REASON and eventually MATURE and God knows that.  If he was to physically stop man from injuring his toe on a stone, we would never learn to wear shoes or avoid the stone.  If he was to stop us from saying wrong things would we ever learn the wisdom of what not to say and the kindness of what to say.

Other side of this is that man has the free will to choose to mock and deride God; But God also has the right to judge his creation for breaking those boundaries.  With free will comes the responsibility in how we use it.  Free will is not a co blanched to do what we like and not bother with the cost.  With free will comes the responsibility, do I choose to obey God or do I choose to do whatever I want?   Thereby we are responsible before God in how we act.

The history of mankind is the history of learning, progressing individually and corporately.  Part of which is coming to know God. All through the Bible God has used examples drawn from historical context to teach his people wisdom and to give understanding.  To characterise his nature and his hatred of sin;

Sin for many is nothing more than a choice of their free will to reject Gods laws; but for God it is the wilful disharmony of what he has created; Rebellion against what is truly good,.  It will cause nothing but chaos and ruination. Free will is therefore a precious and lasting gift to his creation, and not something to be spurned or lost.

Michael Behee, and others, discuss the amazing design of the bacterial flagelum. The flagelum motor consists of many parts and could not have developed through step by step processes, such as darwinian evolution. Natural selection selects “information” to be kept in the population, but doesn’t ever add “information” to the gene pool

UC Ministries:  The absolute wonder of creation.  Evolution would say this just happened.  However  creation reveals that this Bacterial Flagelum Motor had to have all the parts already assembled in order to work.  If any part did not exist then this motor would not work.  If it did not work then it would quickly cease to exist.  We can easily extend this to the higher species.   Unless all the parts were there in the beginning then there could be no copulation let alone growth in the population.  I debated this issue with a evolutionist a while back.  I asked him have you seen a  rock that grew legs and spoke.  Eventually after much annoyance he stated that the question was ridiculous as a rock could never grew legs.  I said exactly.  Its dead and its impossible for something that has no life to produce life.  Life had to be there  from the beginning and it had to be able to function with all the complexities.  Working to do what it was designed to do.  Chaos can never bring order however there is no doubt that there is order within this universe.
