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.


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.



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?


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.


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.

The fossile record of the Octupus says NO CHANGE:

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.

Five octopus fossils, supposedly 95 million years old, were recently discovered in Lebanon, catching scientists by surprise.First, they were surprised that the octopuses were even fossilized. Unlike animals with hard shells or bony skeletons, cephalopods, like the octopus and squid, have no hard parts (other than the mouth). One report said that fossilizing an octopus was as unlikely as capturing a “fossil sneeze”.

The fossils were exquisitely preserved. All eight arms were visible for each animal, as well as traces of muscle and rows of suckers. Remarkably, a few of the fossils even showed internal gills and remnants of ink.

Scientists try to explain the past by looking at what they see happening today. When an octopus dies today, it decomposes into a slimy blob and disappears within a few days. For an octopus to be fossilized it would need to sink to the ocean floor without being eaten, and remain there without decomposing or being consumed by bacteria while being buried by sediment. How could such a process be possible for an octopus at all?

Lead author of the report, Dr Dirk Fuchs of the Freie University, Berlin, said, “The luck was that the corpse landed untouched on the sea floor. The sea floor was free of oxygen and therefore free of scavengers.” But lack of oxygen is no preservative—experiments with fish carcasses show that even in the absence of oxygen they still disintegrate on the ocean bottom. Other scientists have published research showing that the ocean floor is actually teeming with bacterial life. So these scientists have not explained the remarkably preserved fossils at all.

The second surprise was that the specimens look very much like modern species of octopus:

“These things are 95 million years old, yet one of the fossils is almost indistinguishable from living species.”

Evolutionary thinking predicts that an octopus as old as these should look much more “primitive”, since evolution requires increasing complexity over time. Evolutionists had always assumed that the ancient octopus would show “primitive” features, but this discovery, “pushes back the origins of the modern octopus by tens of millions of years …”.

However, the biblical creation model easily explains this amazing octopus discovery.

First, it explains the special conditions needed for soft-bodied animals like the octopus to fossilize.Specifically, the animal must be buried rapidly (while still alive or soon after death) under metres of sediment in order to exclude oxygen and prevent any further scavenging or decay.

Such conditions would certainly have been present in the ocean during the global Flood recorded in the Bible. No miraculous stroke of luck is called for. In fact, creationists would expect the existence of such well-preserved fossil octopuses. And of course, there are many examples of soft-bodied organisms in the fossil record.

What’s more, this particular fossil octopus is enclosed in limestone. Long-age geologists have thought that limestone takes long periods of time to form—hence this octopus fossil, being entombed in limestone, presents an additional challenge to evolutionary thinking. But for biblical creationists there is no mystery, as conditions during the global Flood would have been suitable for rapid limestone formation.What about the similarity of the fossil octopus to modern species? Once again, the biblical creation model predicts that species similar to modern varieties would exist in the fossil record. After all, the fossils were formed only a few thousand years ago, and all the species alive today are descended from animals that were alive before the Flood.

Evolutionary scientists scratch their heads in surprise at their own discoveries because they don’t expect such evidence within their evolutionary philosophy. They are continually forced to invent new stories to account for their surprises.

On the other hand, creationists can enjoy these discoveries and marvel at the wonderful confirmation scientific evidence provides for the biblical record of Earth history. This fossil gives us reason to praise our mighty God who created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1), who revealed Himself through his Son Jesus (2 Timothy 1:8–10; Hebrews 1:2ff) and who will judge the world in righteousness (2 Peter 3:3–7).
