Creation Or Chance?

A VAST change has come
over the world in the last
eighty years. Prior to
1914, the tempo of life was far
more leisurely: motor cars were
few and inefficient; aeroplanes
were flimsy affairs that inspired
little confidence; electricity was
still largely in its infancy. And
morally, the world was still
governed by the standards and
conventions of the Victorian Age.
The first World War brought great changes. It introduced a
period of great inventiveness when, in the words of Bible
prophecy, "knowledge was increased" (Daniel 12:4). Speed
came into its own; the use of electricity was developed; radio
became more than a mere toy. On the battlefields, millions died
as mighty armies became locked in terrible death-struggles;
and, in the widespread catastrophe, conventions were thrown to
the winds, and morals were measures by new standards. In
view of the remarkable developments of technology, and the
widening influence of information, people began to doubt the
existence of God as theories of evolution and "natural
development" were exploited.
On the one hand, men found themselves controlling mighty
forces, and penetrating into previously-unknown space, so that
they could almost imagine themselves to be gods. On the other
hand, they saw destruction so appalling as to cause them to doubt
the existence of a benevolent and loving Creator.
A World Gone Wrong
A materialistic philosophy gained ground in recent times,
which explained life in terms that left out God. It propounded the
theory of evolution, claiming that creation, in all its complex
diversity, originated from mere chance and not from the hands of
an intelligent Creator with a well-defined purpose in mind. As
mankind struggled through the crisis and slump that followed the
great wars, and saw widespread misery and want in famished
areas, featured so evidently in the news media, the principles of
evolution became indoctrinated into politics. Communism became
popular, to further challenge faith and belief in God, so that it is
claimed that Karl Marx did for politics what Darwin did for
science. Today, most forms of political thought, from right to left,
are colored by the principles of socialism, personal greed and
Meanwhile, mankindís faith in religion was shaken. The
influence of the Bible steadily lost ground and was pushed into the
background. Morals were relaxed until today chastity is "old-fashioned."
As the concept of a heavenly Father grew dim, so the
principle of fatherhood on earth waned. Divorce and juvenile
delinquency grew with their heritage of misery and evil, as the
whole world became delinquent towards God. Today, mankind
generally, has turned its back upon God. It is morally in a shocking
condition, whilst racially and nationally it faces the prospects of
such terrible and widespread destruction as could completely
The Theory of Evolution The Cause
No teaching has contributed more to destroying manís
confidence in the existence of God than the theory of evolution.
Yet, that theory is completely false, and there is no scientist of any
standing, who would dare claim that it has been proved
indisputably true. The theory is propounded on the basis of
implication and circumstantial evidence, that fails to satisfy the
truly enquiring mind. This theory cannot provide any answer to the
insurmountable problems that face society, but is itself responsible
for the decline of morals, the break-up of family life, and the
political antagonism that disgraces todayís world.
Yet the Bible, with its remarkable confirmation of prophecy vindicated beyond
all shadow of doubt by the amazing fulfillment of that which it has
predicted [write to the address on the back cover of this booklet
for further free information on the accuracy of Bible prophecy],
can direct to a satisfying way of life that provides for the good of
humanity and also presents a hope for the future (I Timothy 4:8).
The most seriously perturbing aspect of all this conflict, is that
evolution has been gullibly accepted by people who do not
understand how fallacious is its teaching, nor how dangerous its
influence. It has now become incorporated into the educational
systems of the schools, and though it remains an unproven theory,
it is often taught as fact, as true beyond all doubt, and in such a
way as to completely discredit the Bible.
Thus, from early childhood, people are taught to question the
standards of previous times, and to scoff at the Bible with its
message of hope and its offer of personal salvation. People reject
the idea that Jesus Christ is to return to this earth (Acts 1:11; 3:19),
to raise from the dead and give eternal life to those who have lived
in accordance with his teaching (Matthew 19:28-29); they ridicule
the doctrine that shows that God will set up a kingdom upon the
earth (Daniel 2:44), over which Jesus Christ will reign as king
(I Corinthians 15:24; Zechariah 14:9). In doing so they deny
themselves the salvation that God offers to perishing humanity
(John 3:16), and cut themselves off from any hope in the future.
How Clever is Man?
The Bible demands faith, however, and in this materialistic
age, when man has probed so many secrets of life, it is popular to
mock at a Bible faith. Man imagines that he has grown beyond it,
and thinks that he has all the answers to lifeís problems. But how
mistaken is such a view! Man might be clever in a superficial way,
but he has not all the answers. He is clever only to the extent that
God has permitted him to stumble upon discoveries which have
enabled him to use certain elements, the fundamentals about
which, however, he remains ignorant.
Consider electricity, for example. We are absolutely dependent
upon it for the basics of life, yet the scientist who harnesses it
cannot explain what it is, or where it came from!
Consider, further, a marvel of modern times: radio and video transmission. It is
entirely dependent upon elements that man has discovered, but
which he cannot create. No man has ever made an electron, or the
smallest quantity of tungsten, from which electrodes are made; no
man has ever created a scrap of copper used to form the casing of
valves. Thus the radio - advanced as a triumph of manís
ingenuity - is entirely dependent upon elements he never made,
but found! Who put them there in the first place? Who, but God!
Now, consider yourself. Eight hours out of a day you probably
rest on a bed and try to sleep. Why? Why is sleep so essential?
Ask your doctor, and discover that he does not know! He knows
that it is important that you should do so; he knows that it restores
and revives the whole of the human frame, and that it is as
important as food. But your doctor does not know why the human
body must sleep! With all his professed knowledge, man is very
The word "miracle," is frequently used today to describe what
man does, but it is an unpopular word to use in association with
the Bible. The massive jet plane flying overhead is a "miracle,"
but a loud laugh goes up when we refer to the miracles of the
The Evil of Evolution
With the foregoing in mind, carefully consider the theory of
evolution. It claims that "life" came into existence by mere
chance; that its complex, harmonious and diverse forms which are
seen on every hand developed out of slime; that it just happened
without direction or purpose; that it all came into being by blind
accident; that it is merely remarkable luck that we have hands,
feet, head, and eyes!
Now such a theory is incredulous. I look at a watch. I observe
all the intricate mechanism. I know that there is design and
purpose in it all, though (not being mechanically minded) I do not
understand the functions of all the little pieces of machinery. But
the science of evolution would teach me that the watch
manufactured itself; that it evolved all the little springs and wheels
and other intricate pieces of machinery, because it wanted to tell
the time for some reason it did not know itself, and therefore, by
forces working outside of itself, and a desire from within, it
ultimately became a watch!
My little bit of sarcasm is not far-fetched, as every scientist
will know. It is the principle upon which the theory is based. How
did life come into existence? One man told me that in some remote
past, mighty primeval waves beat upon the shores, and life was
created! But who caused the mighty waves to beat upon the shore?
He did not know. And the whole of his theory, to my mind, moved
out of the range of miracle into the realm of magic! Blind chance
waved its magic wand, and life was created!
But then another scientist told me that the first one was wrong!
And, as I searched into this matter, I found so many mistakes that
scientists had made, particularly in relation to this theory of
evolution, so many involved and contradictory theories, all
cancelling out what the other taught, that I was pleased to get back
to my Bible, with its sound, clear, and plain teaching: "In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth" (Genesis 1:1).
But what you need to bear in mind is that these God-defying
theories are taught to children in the schools, indoctrinating them
with principles that encourage them to treat Godís Word with
disrespect, and induce in them a spirit that can lead to delinquency.
The greatest heritage any parents can give their children is a
respect for God, and an education in spiritual matters.
Has Man Penetrated Space?
The telescope scanning the heavens, confirms that our earth is
a very small, insignificant speck floating in unlimited space. When
you look into the sky, you are facing infinity! What is beyond
space? And what is beyond that? So, as we think upon the
problem, there is borne home to us that there is something greater
than mortal man, and we only have to gaze into the heavens to be
brought face to face with the infinite.
Our nearest neighbor (excluding the moon, earthís satellite) is
the planet Venus, which is 39,000,000 kilometres away when at its
nearest point. With Venus, and other planets, we revolve around
the sun which is 150,000,000 kilometres away.
The sun is the centre of a little system of its own, called the
solar system, and the nearest star to the solar system (and itself the
centre of its own system, for every star is a sun in its own right) is
Alpha Centauri, some 42 million million kilometres away.
The solar system is a very small dot in the vast Milky Way,
which we see of a night spread across the sky. Every point of light
seen (excluding the few planets associated with the sun) is a
mighty sun controlling its own vast system like our sun. Train a
telescope upon the heavens, and for every dot of light you saw
with the naked eye, you will see another thousand! The larger the
telescope that man produces, the more he realises that there is no
limit to discoveries! He is face to face with the Infinite.
Yet it is all governed by marvellous precision and order, more
meticulous and exact than the best watch that man has ever made.
Did "Lady Luck" cause all this to happen? Did blind chance
create remarkable order? To pose the question is to answer it!
So tremendous is the vault of heaven, that ordinary
measurements are inadequate, and man has adopted another unit
called the light year. Light travels at the rate of 300,000 kilometres
per second. Multiply that by 60 for the distance in a minute, again
by 60 for the distance in an hour, again by 24 for the distance in
day, and finally by 365 for the distance covered in a year, and the
total of nearly ten million million kilometres is the enormous
yardstick by which man tries to measure the heavens. Measured on
this vast yardstick, our nearest star-neighbor (Alpha Centauri) is
four and one-third light years distant from the earth! In other
words, if the rockets that landed on the moon were directed to our
nearest star, they would take 5,000 years to reach it! And long
before that, I should think, those who launched it would have lost
interest in its progress!
Yet scientists glibly speak of "man's conquest of space"!
How puny is man in comparison with creation about him. God
could well say to Job: "Canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons"
Astronomers have ascertained that this giant of the sky, at least
a million times larger than our own sun (and the sun is over a
million times larger than the earth), flies through space with its
retinue of worlds, or "sons," at the rate of more than fourteen
hundred thousand kilometres an hour! Surely only Omnipotent
power can "guide Arcturus with his sons" on their furious race
through space. How true are the words of the Psalmist: "When I
consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the
stars which Thou hast ordained, what is man, that Thou art
mindful of him?" (Psalm 8:3-6).
Yet God, in His infinite mercy, has bridged these mighty
distances, and has revealed Himself as a Father unto humanity,
that He might save some for His glory (Psalm 103:11-17).
When Pigmies Look Up!
When man gazes into the heavens, he sees something of the
glory and wonder of the Creator. The Bible describes God as
"hanging the world upon nothing" (Job 26:7), and speaks of the
"circle of the earth" (Isaiah 40:2). Have you ever thought of the
weight of the globe which is computed at 6,000,000,000,000,000,-000,000
tonnes, and considered the mighty power of God who
projected it into space at a speed of 29.7 kilometres per second and
continues to hold it in position by His mysterious force of gravity?
This speed makes the fastest, most powerful jet-plane seem
stationary! Have you ever pondered the mystery of those mighty
heavenly bodies all hurtling through space at tremendous speeds,
and yet all subject to such laws of precision that astronomers can
predict their position in relation to the earth to the minute?
Is this mighty power and marvellous precision an evidence of
Creation or Chance?
Immense as is the earth, it is small in comparison to the sun.
Because of its vast distance from us, the sun, when viewed through
colored glass, appears as a small red disc; but actually, its diameter
is approximately one and a half million kilometres.
The sun is natureís hearth, for terrestrial life depends upon its
rays. Nothing is more interesting than the wanderings of a ray of
light. First there is its long journey through space at the speed of
300,000 kilometres per second. It reaches the earth and caresses
the fields. Every blade of grass seizes it as with delight, and solar
heat becomes imprisoned in its frail organism. The beasts of the
field are allured by the fine green tufts of grass, and thus the sunís
rays enter into their bodies and become transformed into milk,
flesh or wool, finally ending upon our tables in the form of food,
or upon our backs in the form of clothing! We can admire with
gratitude the magnificent sun which provides in its rays the means
of life for man, and can respond to the wisdom of God by giving
thanks for His wonderful and beneficent creation; and at the same
time, leave the evolutionist to his slime (II Peter 2:22)!
The sun, with its health-giving rays, and its power to dispel
darkness, is a fitting symbol for the Lord Jesus Christ who
proclaimed himself to be "the Light of the World" (John 18:12),
and who will not only give life to those who come under his
beneficent influence, but will ultimately destroy the spiritual
darkness and superstition that holds mankind encased in gloom
(Isaiah 60:1-2). Concerning his coming reign on earth, the
Psalmist declared: "His name shall continue as long as the sun,
and men shall be blessed in him; all nations shall call him
blessed" (Psalms 72:17).
As we look towards the heavens, and view the mighty forces
that God has projected into space, we see the tokens of His power,
tokens which illustrate His ability to execute His great purpose in
the earth: "The God of heaven shall set up a kingdom which
shall never be destroyed, and the kingdom shall not be left to
other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever" (Dan. 2:44).
To accomplish this purpose, God will send Jesus Christ back to
this earth (Revelation 1:7).
Symbols in the Sky
The great fires of the sun never go out. They burn with a
surface heat of six to seven thousand degrees, whilst the internal
temperature is considered to be approximately 15 million degrees.
Of this output energy, the earth receives but a minute part. If the
earth was any closer to the sun, the heat of the latter would destroy
us. If it were as close to the sun as the moon is to the earth, the
earth would disintegrate! But Godís wisdom arranged that the
earth should be positioned where it is in order that it should sustain
life (Isaiah 45:18).
The greatest works of man are puny compared to those of God.
Supposing a fog existed over Sydney Harbor 90 metres deep, the
amount of air to be dissipated would be more than five million
tonnes. Man cannot devise means to disperse it; yet the sun, the
great dispeller of gloom and darkness, can accomplish the work
within an hour, and this is but a fraction of fog to be shifted during
each twenty-four hours.
Many an astronomer has extolled the glory of the sun. Its
surface is called the Photosphere, because it gives out the light
which illuminates the earth. Under normal circumstances, it seems
to have a smooth surface but, actually, it has large waves upon it,
so that it has been described as a great ocean of fire. Sun spots
appear on the photosphere which are really great fiery storms, during which
tremendous hydrogen flames are cast out, reaching over 300,000 kms.
Near the edge of some of the spots are bright
ridges called faculae, which form the most brilliant part of
the sun, and are sometimes
65,000 kms in length and 6,500 kms in breadth. Outside the
photosphere is the reversing layer consisting of cooler gases.
Above this is the Chromosphere, or color sphere, so called
because of its rose tint appearance. It extends to a depth of 6,500
kms. Beyond this is the marvellous white glory of the Corona. It is
a kind of rarified atmosphere out of which emerges long, slender,
luminous filaments called streamers. Some have extended to a
distance of sixteen million kms in length. They were seen at the
time of total eclipse in 1878.
The Bible likens the sun to a great fiery brazier of unparalleled
strength and splendor, whose fertilising rays bring life to the
world. In Psalm 19, David likened the sun to a bridegroom
appearing with glory and splendor, before the assembled
gathering, or as a strong man running a race to the excitement of
the assembled onlookers, and saw the powerful sun as a symbol of
earthís coming king, the Christ in whom his hopes were centred.
David was a "man after Godís own heart," to whom God made
promises of eternal import (II Samuel 7; Isaiah 55), and he
loved to contemplate the omnipotence and omniscience of the
Creator as revealed in His works. He declared: "The works of God
are great, sought out of all them that take delight therein"
The glory, strength, fiery heat, revealing light, dominating
power, and life-giving properties of the sun are used as symbols of
the Lord Jesus. He is represented as coming to the earth "as the
great Sun of righteousness with healing in his beams" (Malachi 4:2).
His glory will commence a new epoch, a "new day" for the
earth, when he shall shine in the political heavens as King of kings
(II Samuel 23: 4). His rays of spiritual light will disperse the gloom
and evil of this Gentile night and irradiate the world with divine
Truth (Isaiah 60:1-3).
He will come as a bridegroom to his waiting
bride (Revelation 19:8), and she comprises all those who have
earnestly sought to live in accordance with his precepts in
anticipation of his coming, and, joined to him in immortality they
will live and reign upon the earth in glorious unity (Revelation
5:9-10; John 17:20-21). Christ will be "a strong man to run a
race" (Psalm 19:5), for he will cast down all opposing kings and
rule over all the earth in righteousness (Daniel 7:27). Then shall all
men praise him, for "the nation and kingdom that will not serve
him shall perish" (Isaiah 60:12). In the effulgence of his spiritual
light and understanding there shall be dispelled the fog and "gross
darkness" that encompasses mankind today, and by his revelation
of divine Truth men will be forced to exclaim: "Surely our fathers
(spiritual, political and scientific!) have inherited lies, vanity, and
things wherein there is no profit" (Jeremiah 16:19).
The Evolutionist Caught in a Fly-Trap!
Simply put, evolution can be defined as the developing of new
and complex forms of life, from simpler forms by natural
processes rather than by specific creation. God is thus replaced by
Nature; and evolutionists claim that all the amazing diversities of
life on the earth do not speak of His wonderful creative Power, but
of the remarkable vicissitudes of chance!
To see how absurd this teaching is, examine carefully Godís
handiwork in the insect-devouring "Venus Fly Trap," found in
North Carolina, USA, and consider whether this is an evidence of
wonderful design at the hand of an intelligent Creator, or of blind
chance working through amazing luck!
From the accompanying drawings, identify the different parts
of the flower, and consider how the trap works. The leaves
of this plant lie in a "rosette" flat on the ground. Each
leaf ends in a leaf-blade that looks and acts like a steel trap. The
two halves of the trap, hinged in the middle, are attractive on top,
being colored pink, red or green, and having the lure of flowers.
But there are three little "triggers" (sensitive hairs)
on the upper inner surface of each side of the trap, making a
total of six "triggers" for each trap.
Insects land on these traps and walk around in search of nectar.
When an insect disturbs the sensitive hairs on the trap, it will
instantly snap shut, with the tooth-edges meshing and preventing
escape. These six sensitive hairs even distinguish
between a living and a dead object, for the leaf-trap will not close
unless two hairs are touched in succession, or the same hair twice.
Once shut, however, the trap gradually pinches tighter and
tighter, squeezing its prey against the digestive glands on the inner
surfaces of the trap. These traps are strong enough to crush soft
bodies, while the glands secrete an acid that can digest any insect
The glands are able to give a continual supply of acid for a
week once a victim has been ensnared. When the trap closes,
functions are set in motion which virtually turn it into a "stomach."
This plant, with its many traps, is designed to work in unison
with a co-operative sequence. This is obviously the rational design
of an intelligent Creator.
Consider again the various parts of the trap, two leaves, the
hinges, the toothed edges, the "trigger" hairs, the digestive glands,
the copious acid secretion at the right time. How could random
chance, without intelligent design, produce such an organisation?
It is impossible. The theory of evolution is revealed to be absurd in
attempting to show how the Venus Fly Trap evolved. In fact, in
trying to do so, the evolutionist is himself caught in a fly trap!
Consider the alternative. The parts of the trap either "evolved"
one after the other over millions of years - or God created the
plant! The evolutionist claims that it took millions of years for the
trap to evolve, but, until the whole plant is completely formed, it
wonít work! In other words, for millions of years the plant has
been evolving a trap that wonít work!
Fortunately, the plant has
no brains, otherwise it surely would have destroyed itself in sheer
frustration! But though it lacks brains, apparently, according to the
evolutionist, it went on busily evolving away over millions of
years, attempting the impossible, trying to make an incomplete
trap work until, supposedly at one stage, a particularly bright plant,
by superhuman effort (we wonít use the word "miracle"),
suddenly thought out (without brains, mind you) what was
required and proceeded to grow it!
Please excuse the sarcasm in our description, but how else can
evolution account for this amazing plant? There is only one way
that plant could come into being: by specific creation.
Look at it again. Notice that the flower is separate from the
trap which is situated on the end of the leaf. Any variations in the
shape of leaves are not handed on to its offspring, unless they are
transferred to the seeds. Can the flower do this itself? Of course
not! The alternative is for the evolutionist to "suppose" that
somehow evolution takes place inside the seed itself.
Now consider what these so-called scientists are asking you to
believe. They ask you to accept that the intricate insect trap, with
all its functions is the result of "changes" inside the microscopic
cell from which the seed is developed, and that during this
evolutionary period these changes were useless (for the trap would
not work), and therefore they were "evolved" for no apparent
The cell, itself, is made up of many complex parts and
substances, the most intriguing being the chromosomes and genes.
The former are the tiny ribbons of proteins and nucleic acids that
dictate growth and heredity, thus determining the shape and
function of the whole plant.
What possible "natural forces" could work in a cell, whose
fluid interest is in an almost continual state of upheaval, in order to
influence those tiny ribbons of protein, so that when the cell
reproduces itself millions of times, a "Venus Fly Trap" is formed
on the edge of each leaf to catch insects and any other small
Obviously, the theory of evolution dispenses with reason and
truth, and substitutes absurdity; but what is more serious, it
dispenses with the need of a Creator in the marvellous living
things around us, seeking to explain all existence as the result of
But, it may be objected, does not differences in environment
bring about changes in persons? Does not interbreeding produce
better animals? That may be so, but it cannot change a sheep into a
horse, and that, virtually, is what evolution claims. Leave the well
bred animal to itself, and what will happen? Every breeder knows;
it will revert back to type.
The Marvel of Man
The human body is a wonderful and intricate piece of living
mechanism. The heart, the blood-stream, the lungs, and so forth,
are all working hard and constantly to maintain life in being, and
yet so wonderfully is this done, that we are unconscious of it all
until some disarrangement or accident causes us to heed it.
Is all this the result of chance working away in a pool of slime?
The Bible teaches that man was made for the glory of God, and
was given the intellect to reflect His glory. Unfortunately, that
same intellect is often prostituted to the cause of folly and
As an example of the marvellous mechanism of the body,
consider the wonder of light as taken into the body through the
eye. Science once claimed that light is a series of wave movements
in the ether initiated by luminous bodies such as the sun, and
which vibrate up and down at right angles to the direction of light.
Light is made up of a combination of various waves, the colors of
which are shown in the rainbow when the light of the sun is
reflected in falling rain. These waves vary in size according to the
particular color or shade but they average approximately 0.00042
of a millimetre in size.
We appreciate the beauty of light and color through the sight
of the eyes, and that is possible because of the delicate membrane
of the retina, which is an expansion of the fibres of the optic nerve,
spread out at the back part of the eye. Although only 3.175
millimetre in thickness, it is composed of no fewer than ten
different layers, each 0.3175 millimetre thick. As light travels at
the speed of 300,000 kilometres per second, it is a matter of simple
mathematical computation to determine that when we look at a
violet flower (violet color waves being the shortest), the atoms in
the retina vibrate at the tremendous rate of 750,000,000,000,000
vibrations per second!
No wonder the Psalmist declared of the Creator: "I will praise
thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvellous are
Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well" (Psalm 139:14).
In the marvel of the retina of the eye, we have an example of the
infinite power of the Creator, who has thus created a living
substance 750 billion times more delicate than the escapement of a
watch. It would take over 22 years for a watch to tick as many
times as the retina vibrates in a second! Yet "the fool hath said"
(Psalm 14:1) that man is a monument to the marvel of chance, not
to the moulding of a divine and intelligent Creator!
The Evolutionist Stung by a Bee!
Consider the amazing wax-cells that abound in the beehive.
Each cell is a perfect hexagon which the bee by instinct makes
without mistake. Try to do this yourself! Without ruler, protractor
or set square, endeavour to carefully draw a perfect hexagon. You
will find it impossible! Yet the bees do it! How?
Moreover, each comb contains two sets of cells, one opening
on each side of its faces. The cells of one side, however, are not
exactly opposite to those of the other; for the middle of each cell
abuts against the point where the walls of the three cells meet on
the opposite side, and thus the partition that separates the cells is
greatly strengthened. This partition is not flat, but consists of three
planes which meet each other at a particular angle, so as to make
the centre of the cell its deepest part.
It has been ascertained by measurement that the angles formed
by bees are 109.28 and 70.32 degrees respectively. By very
intricate calculation, it was determined by the mathematician
Konig, that the best angles for such a purpose should be 109.26
and 70.34. In other words, the mathematicians and the bees
differed only by the small discrepancy of two minutes of a degree,
or 1/10,800th part of a circle, an infinitesmal space in so small a
thing as a bee-cell.
Were the bees by this minute fraction at fault? Or did the
geometricians err? The latter proved to be the case. MacLaurin, the
Scottish mathematician, not satisfied with this explanation, applied
himself to a fresh and careful
investigation of the question.
showed that, owing to a slight
misprint in the logarithmic tables,
the result previously obtained was
erroneous to the exact amount of
two minutes of a degree! So the
bees were right, and the
mathematicians were wrong.
Whence came the knowledge
of the bees? Even Darwin was
stung into silence by these little creatures, saying, "What shall we
say concerning the honeybee ...?"
What, indeed! The special instincts which cause the bees to
make their cells perfect hexagons, the sparrows to build their nests
with straw, the beavers to build a dam, and the rabbits to burrow in
the ground, are all proofs of the creation of separate species: a
silent testimony to the existence of an infinite Creator working
according to intelligent plan.
The Evolutionist Reveals Godís Wisdom
Unconsciously, the evolutionist gives his witness to the
marvellous prescience and wisdom of God, because the growth
and influence of his theory in these last days is clearly predicted in
Godís word. The Bible declares: "Know this first, that there shall
come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and
saying, Where is the promise of his coming? ... for this they
willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens
were of old, and the earth ..." (II Peter 3:4-5).
Here is a Bible prophecy clearly stating that in the "last days"
men would be "willingly ignorant" of the facts of creation! The
widespread teaching of the evolutionary theory, in spite of the
evidence that can be brought against it, is a fulfillment of this
prediction. Is it not a remarkable thing, that God should predict the
very trend that is so obvious today? Scripture shows that the
theory will be responsible for the moral declension that would be a
feature of the "last days" prior to Christís coming to set up his
kingdom on earth, so that the widespread, blind acceptance of this
myth of evolution is a significant "sign of the times."
We need to heed these warning, prophetic words of the Bible,
The remarkable honeycomb
and refuse to bow down to such a God-defying doctrine as
evolution, which, in spite of the claims of so-called learned men,
cannot be proved as true, and remains in the realm of magical
Let people consider the wonders of creation, whether viewed
in the heavens above, or upon the earth beneath, and here will be
instantly recognised tokens of glory that speak of the wisdom of
the Creatorís hand. Let them closely study the Bible, and they will
be compelled to realise, that in this wonderful Book, there is found
something equally as marvellous as the intricate pattern of life in
its diversity, as is manifested on all sides.
It is inconceivable that God should have arranged for creation
without purpose, and inasmuch as we see design and wisdom in
the heavens and the earth, in man and all creation, so there must be
a future purpose for life on this earth.
The Bible reveals that purpose. It declares: "The whole earth
shall be filled with the glory of the Lord" (Numbers 14:21). It is
for that reason that Jesus Christ is to return; it is for that reason that
the Bible has come into existence: to bring to man Godís
revelation and to call him to salvation. That Book offers you life
eternal upon the earth at Christís coming (Romans 2:6-7;
Revelation 22:12; Daniel 7:27).
What can the present offer you? A life of frustration and
difficulty ending in death! But what of the future? That depends
upon what you do with Jesus Christ and with God! Are you really
satisfied with things as they exist on earth at the present? Are you
happy about the future in which families must grow up? Cannot
you discern the growing evil on every side? The increasing
immorality? The tremendous problems that are already facing
The Bible has the solution to these things. For, although people
are being subjected to pressure today that can drive them away
from the things of God and the Bible, wisdom dictates that you
show sufficient determination and independence of mind to resist
these influences, and seek that which can be of inestimable benefit.
The issue is up to you!
