Those with political agendas insist “the science is settled” regarding evolution. They are usually the ones holding the grant money bags. As a result, scientists often choose to produce work that allows them to keep their funding and their jobs instead of following the evidence. Unfortunately, students and others trust the scientists’ authority and believe evolution is undeniably true. They could not be further from the truth.
On Tuesday, February 7th, Ken Ham, president of Answers In Genesis, hosted the premier of the new documentary “Is Genesis History?” at the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky. Members of the museum received invitations to the private viewing. Afterwards, the scientists involved in the movie participated in a Q&A session. I was lucky enough to attend.
Director Thomas Purifoy, former Naval officer and teacher, and founder of Compass Cinema, gathered over a dozen PhD’s who have spent their lives researching and analyzing important archeological, biological, paleontological and other scientific finds. These scientists discuss their discovers and what their findings may really be telling us.
Host Del Tackett, of “The Truth Project,” guides the audience to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the peaks of mountains, the depths of the ocean and into the power of the microscope to explore the evidence of the earth’s formation and life.
The consensus among these scientists was that the interpretation of evidence could actually come down to your starting point. Trying to predict what happened thousands of years ago with today’s measuring sticks results in extremely skewed conclusions. Evolutionists believe the earth was on fire at one point, undergoing dramatic changes since then. Yet they use today’s flow of rivers to calculate the time needed to carve out canyons.
Evolutionists don’t just ignore a global flood. They fail to consider earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, fires and other such natural disasters in their calculations. In their analysis, they assume the earth has always been as it is today. Those coming from a Biblical standpoint recognized the earth has undergone drastic changes and is not the same as it was just 6000 years ago.
Using Mount St. Helens as a case in point, scientists present evidence showing how massive changes in landscape, topography, and river flow happened in a matter of weeks, days and even minutes. Since this natural disaster occurred in 1980, scientists have witnessed and recorded its effects and changes. This data is a blueprint to deciphering the past.
For example, Tackett holds a rock known to have formed from volcanic eruptions occurring in 1986. Radiometric dating studies conduced in 1992 estimates its age at 350,000 years old. That is roughly 60,000 times older than reality. The methods for aging rocks and bones are incredibly unreliable but remain a staple for old earth theory.
Doctors from several scientific disciplines address other evolutionary inconsistencies. One such issue includes the formation in rock layers. While many claim these layers took millions of years to build up, the movie discusses several irregularities with this theory. For instance, there is no indication of erosion in between the layers. Therefore, old earth theory is inconsistent with physical evidence. This is just one of the many flaws shown regarding the millions of years rock formation belief.
Another hole is poked into the old earth theory by biologist Dr. Kevin Anderson. While examining a dinosaur horn, proteins and soft tissue were discovered inside. Explaining that such organic items break down very easily, especially under harsh conditions, this find is extremely rare. The fact that such proteins and tissue survived thousands of years is amazing. Therefore, to still be intact after millions of years would be virtually impossible.
One of evolutionists’ favorite arguments against a global flood is the Coconino Sandstone found in the desert. However, evidence actually points reality towards a flood. As the movie shows, the angle of formation is vital to the understanding of their development. Once measured, the small angle of the layers is consistent with those deposited under water, not the sharper angled layers put down by wind. Even though this fact has been known for over 60 years, scientists regurgitate false information they read in textbooks instead of investigating the visible truth for themselves.
Also discussed are the evolutionary arguments of all species developing from a single-celled organism, DNA development, erosion in the Grand Canyon, and fossil formation, among others.
“Is Genesis History?” is a fascinating look at the scientific evidence by several scientific fields as well as some religious analysis. I encourage all to see the movie and review the evidence for yourself. If you believe in creation or intelligent design, this movie presents confirmation of that theory. If you believe evolution is the only answer. Maybe that’s because you have never been allowed the opportunity to view the evidence in any other way. Now is a perfect time to examine to see if another possibility holds up.
Theaters will show “Is Genesis History?” for one night only on February 23rd. You can find out more about the documentary, as well as local theaters showing the movie, at IsGenesisHistory.com. Tickets are available for group purchase. The Answers in Genesis website also provides reports on many of the same topics discussed in the movie and is an excellent resource. The movie, however, takes you into the field for a first hand look that is priceless.
The secular world tries desperately to convince people that there is no evidence to support the Biblical/creation account. Many insist everything researchers have discovered is unquestionable proof of evolution. Yet several of the scientists in this movie know colleagues who, after examining the same empirical evidence, came to the conclusion that evolutionary theory does not hold up.
Why do evolutionists fight so hard to silence opposing views? If evolutionary evidence is so overwhelming, and creationism evidence is so flimsy, why not let the public see both and compare? Scientists know theories fall under their own weight if the facts don’t support them. But maybe that is exactly what they are afraid of.
But that’s just my 2 cents.
