STEP ONE: So You Believe in Evolution?

Bill Brinkworth

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis. 1:1

STEP ONE: “Let me understand: you believe that all living things on this earth started when two chemicals on the earth somehow got togetherand somehow changed into something more advanced? That life changed, or evolved into something more complex and more developed?”

“Yes, basically that is what happened over millions of years?”

“Hmm.  So these chemicals got together after many accidents, and failures, and finally became an advanced combination of some type that was more developed? Then how did it duplicate itself?”

“Well, it had to start all over again.”

STEP TWO: “So after say 100,000 years of ‘accidents’ and returning to STEP ONE, these chemicals finally produced, by chance, a more advanced compound that duplicated itself.  Then the next step would be for this ‘duplicating chemical’ to create another advancement like the ability to sense something that may be a danger to itself, like direct sunlight that could dry it out, or heat that could kill it.”

“Something like that.  It makes sense.”

“So, let’s think this out logically.  After failing to develop a system in this chemical to protect itself it had to keep returning  to STEP TWO for 100’s of thousands of years before this ‘chemical’ finally got it right by accident; and now there was a chemical that could duplicate itself, and protect itself from something before something in its environment killed it.  Perhaps, sometime this developing chemical had to start all over and go back to STEP ONE.

“So now to develop into something more advanced, say a motion like rolling, or swimming, it would take a whole bunch of 100’s of thousands of years for this duplicating, self-protecting compound, after returning to STEP THREE, to be able to move.”

“Well, those 100’s of thousands of years may have been millions of years they say.”

“Oh, I see; so it was probably much longer to get to STEP THREE.  I just used 100’s of thousands to make the number smaller so I could somehow grasp your theory.  By the way, are there any proofs of these improvements or transitions?”

“No, I don’t believe there are any.  There are just intelligent people’s suppositions and theories.”

“Hmm.  Now this basic starting block had to have more developments, like feeding itself, recognition, and senses.  So conservatively, that is three more important functions, chemical changes, and a whole lot of returning to STEP FOUR, FIVE, SIX, and maybe even back to STEP ONE.  So, with my conservative numbers we’re up to about one million years.  Then this ‘accidental’ chemical would eventually progress into a living organism with 100’s of thousands of cells, bodily, and chemical functions that are added to it. That would put us conservatively at a total of 11,000,000 years, again using my 100,000 years as a base.

“Then if this creature, by chance and a whole lot of ‘visits’ to STEP ONE through 100,000 were to develop into a more advanced creature, it would have more bodily functions such as cell reproduction, nerves, white cells to fight infection, chemical transportation of hundreds of chemicals, more senses, maybe some organs and glands, reproduction of tissues and all chemicals/hormones involved, brain development with its millions of cells and functions, memorization, blood and all its functions, ability to break down and disperse food to the body, and an ability to reproduce this organism that is actually like itself.   This creature would conservatively have 100’s of thousands more functions.  So after 100,000 ‘trips’ back to at least STEP 100,000, plus all the original returns to previous STEPS, that would perhaps put it at 11,012,000,000 (11 billion+) years to develop.

“Then this species would supposedly change into other forms, which I don’t think anybody really knows how many intermediary steps there would have to be with at least 100,000 of ‘improvements’.  Say it were only five steps until it developed into man, that would have us at around 50,000,000,000 (50 billion) years.

“Now the human body has easily 100’s of thousands of other functions including hair growth, thousands of enzymes that control chemical and other functions, cell growth and reproduction, advanced organs, memory, sight, hearing, taste, muscles, billions of cells, millions of nerves, food consumption, fighting off more diseases, glands, layers of skins, healing abilities for most parts of the body, ability to reproduce with a male or female, …..  So that human ‘step’ would easily be another 10 billion years.  That would put us at 60 billion years — roughly.

“Oh, my word.  And if something went wrong, a disease, or accidental death, or inability to handle something in the environment, development of man would have to go back to STEP ONE again and start all over for another 60 billion years.”

“Well, there’s no real proof of all these steps you said, but it makes sense.”

“And there really is not any proof for any of these assumptions or theories?  Hmm.  But officially the evolutionists claim man is between 2.4 and 7 million years old, of which there is no real proof of any chemical, tissue, bodily developments of the human body and other transitionary phases (except for a few fragments of bone, and certainly not even a complete skull or skeleton).  Let’s not forget that mutations of an organism, which is what they are saying has happened to the different parts of the body as it developed, have never been known to reproduce themselves.  Also, trusting that all this happened to develop into man denies many scientific laws such as the First and Second Law of Thermodynamics. The Theory of Evolution is man’s idea, and not too many of these ‘scientists’ can agree with each other’s theories, of how we got here without God’s intervention. In addition, with all these ideas there is no proof.

“Man alive.  Sooo, if anyone believes any of this they have to have a lot of faith in men’s notions.  One that believes this ‘Theory of Evolution’ laughs in the face of real science and must have more faith to believe this fairy tale, than anyone I have ever met!”

My “scientific,” evolution-believing acquaintance got very quiet, and had a very glazed look.


"Believing God’s explanation of His creation makes more sense, answers thousands of man’s questions, and is more scientific than man’s 'science'!"
