Evolution: Fact or Fallacy?

Millions of people believe that this universe started with a big bang; and that after billions of years life on earth evolved in all its complexity - of its own accord! Is this the case? Are living creatures able to bring themselves into being and then change from one kind to another? Have earth's myriad life forms: plants, insects, birds, animals and mankind all evolved from a common ancestor? Is there evidence to support this notion? Or is our generation being taken in by the greatest hoax of all time - the theory of evolution?

Listed below are a few eye-opening quotations by prominent scientists and thinkers of our time. They are worthy of consideration. We could list many, many more by palaeontologists, geologists, astronomers, chemists, physicists, mathematicians, cosmologists, zoologists, geneticists and physicians: but the sheer volume of quotations would exhaust the reader. Those listed below should suffice to prove our point that the theory of evolution is not as fool-proof as it is cracked up to be, and hundreds of scientists are distancing themselves from it every year. After all, who wants to be associated with a theory if it's wrong? Driving down the wrong highway will never get you to your destination. Now to the quotations. Bear in mind that they are made by prominent scientists and scholars of our day.

Darwin's Own Confession



DNA is DeoxyriboNucleic Acid. Chromosomes are thread-like structures made of DNA and protein. There are 46 chromosomes in man. (Arthur E Wilder-Smith, Ph.D.,D.Sc.,, The Natural Sciences Know Nothing of Evolution (Santee, California: Master Books, p.154). Dr Wilder-Smith's personal conclusion is as follows:

The Everlasting Gospel

One of the last messages to be preached to mankind is called the Everlasting Gospel. It is everlasting simply because the truth it encompasses will never cease to be relevant. The Everlasting Gospel is briefly described in the book of Revelation as follows:
Revelation 14: 6: And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7: Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

It is plain to see that the Everlasting Gospel is not merely a call to "fear God", (which means to revere Him, honour Him and obey Him with respectful awe) but it is a call to 'worship Him as the CREATOR, the One who made the heavens, the earth the sea and the fountains of waters.' In other words the Everlasting Gospel, as preached in these last days, is calling upon mankind to jettison the popular but totally fallacious theory of Evolution and to accept the fact that the Almighty God of Israel 'made the heavens, the earth the sea and the fountains of waters.' In other words, the Everlasting Gospel is a call to worship the Creator; the One who made the universe in six literal days as the Bible teaches. The doctrine of Special Creation is a foundation teaching of Scripture which true science will always verify. The first two chapters of Genesis and the last two chapters of Revelation are about the Almighty's creative powers and the Everlasting Gospel is a call to humanity to accept these facts before it is too late.

Those who accept that the Almighty created the heavens, the earth, the sea and the fountains of waters in six literal days will worship Him by keeping the seventh day Sabbath (Saturday) which is the divinely appointed memorial of His creation.
Exodus 20: 8: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9: Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

I repeat: The Everlasting Gospel is a call to faith and obedience; especially obedience of the seventh day Sabbath command, which commemorates the creation of the universe! Pause dear reader and consider what you have just read.


As we can see the theory of Evolution cannot be proved. It is hopelessly flawed and unworthy of serious consideration. The foregoing quotations, and we could have bombarded the reader with many, many more, make this fact obvious to the unprejudiced mind. The alternative theory of Special Creation also cannot be proved: but the abundance of evidence in the natural world, the fossil records and the DNA code of living creatures should lead the unbiased mind to the inevitable conclusion that of the two possibilities - Special Creation is the more likely. The fact is, God will not dance to anyone's puny request to prove His existence or power to create. Both these theories, therefore, are accepted by those who believe them - purely on the basis of faith. In effect each theory forms the basis of a religion.
  1. One religion believing that the Almighty God created all matter, the physical laws of the universe and life in its myriad forms.
  2. The other religion believing that there is no God in the universe, no supernatural Being and that all the matter in the vast universe, all the complex laws contained therein and finally life itself all came into existence of their own accord!
Basically these are the two alternative views on the origin of the universe and the myriad life forms in our world. There are no others. There either is or there isn't a Creator! It's as simple as that. Millions have settled for the first option - Special Creation. Sad to say it is seldom taught in the colleges of the West. Millions have settled for the second option - Evolution. This is taught in most western schools and colleges as though it were fact: but you now know that certainly isn't the case.

Which viewpoint society bases its faith upon eventually determines the behaviour of that society. If the youth are taught that they came from apes, then the 'law of the jungle' - the survival of the fittest - will take over: and no one should be surprised at the moral collapse of society, particularly amongst the youth. They are merely living out the 'law of the jungle' as taught to them by their elders.

If on the other hand we were made by God 'in His own image' then we are accountable to Him for our actions. We cannot - yea we dare not - live as we please; because the Creator declares that there is coming a Day of Judgment when He will judge the world. On that awesome day every man, woman and child will have to give account of the deeds done in the body.
