THE ATMOSPHERE: How would you like to breath methane, ammonia, hydrogen and other chemicals? Science tells us that live could not begin without these chemicals in the air. Then lightening struck these chemicals with water below (prebiotic soup ) and life started here on earth. That life evolved, the atmosphere changed to what we have today, and "Presto" 3-4 billion years later you are reading this paper.

Others say that life started in the deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Highly favorable laboratory experiments have failed time and time again to produce anything remotely resembling life. These experiments are called prebiotic soups. The problem with amino acids were listed above. In addition, there are problems with the DNA and RNA. The odds of overcoming these problems, and other problems is 10 to the 100 billion power, essentially impossible.

LIFE ON MARS? Of course there is. Every time a large meteorite hits earth or a volcano erupts, many rocks, containing many varieties of Earth life, will escape earth and land on mars. How many meteorites and volcanos have there been?

Now, just a few additional points to consider (there are over two dozen). These are areas that the Evolutionist must show some evidence. Four areas of debate are:
1. Abiogenesis (the production of living organisms by nonliving matter)

2. There is no mechanism to propel an organism through successive stages of development and very limited capacity for change. The Darwinist mechanisms of natural selection and mutations are useless until the first life form is assembled. In spite of decades of intense research, Origin-of-life scientists have yet to demonstrate the feasibility of any mechanism(s) for the assembly of a living organism from inorganic materials by strictly natural processes.

3. The velocity of light.

4. The universe is finite.

The theory of evolution says that all living things improve with time. However, the very complicated 2nd law of thermo-dynamics, in physics, states that all energy decreases (entropy) with time so that at some point in time all things will die. For example, our sun, will not burn "forever", it is dying.

This entropy increase means a decrease in the energy to perform mechanical work such as bouncing. So less and less energy would be available with each bounce to make the bounce happen. The laws of thermodynamics compel the maximum diameter of the universe to increase. Therefore, such a universe could look forward to an infinite long future.

Scientists have proven that the universe is slowing down due to entropy. Thus, the universe is finite and had a beginning. The first principal of physics states that from nothing, nothing derives. Therefore, the universe started from something. Who made that something?

The theory of evolution really pertains to the physical. How does evolution account for moral consciousness, feelings like love (love can't be measured, have you ever seen three feet of love?), hate, depression, justice and so many more? Yet one would be foolish to deny their reality! We should not insist that GOD be measured by scientific methods.

So now let's go back to the idea of a creation and a creator. Whom we will call GOD.

Some questions we have, simply don't have an answer, like, "Who made God". Some answers must be left to faith. We as humans have faith in many things. Such as: "WHY" does the earth have the perfect distance from the sun, perfect size, perfect tilt and perfect rotation as well as other parameters?

"WHY" does the sun give us perfect heat, light and gravity (One sun-three powers)? "WHY" are the magnetic poles and the star locations perfect for navigation?

"WHY" and how does the human heart get enough rest between 3,400,000,000 beats in a lifetime? You know that we could go on with a list like this for a long time.

It is significant that anthropological research has indicated that among the farthest and most remote primitive peoples today, there is a universal belief in God. The writer of Ecclesiastes referred to God as having "eternity in the hearts of men" (Eccles 3:11).

Just what does it take for the universe to stay in fine tune? Review the following parameters and judge for yourself:
1. There must be "entropy" or energy degradation at the proper
2. The ratio of the electromagnetic force constant to the
gravitational force constant.
3. Ratio of electron to proton mass.
4. Expansion rate of the universe.
5. Velocity of light.
6. The size of the earth -If smaller- no atmosphere; If larger
deadly hydrogen.
7. Perfect distance from the sun -a small change would make
earth too hot or cold.

Are these parameters complicated? Yes! WHY? All the more evidence for creation and not by chance. There are actually many-many more characteristics that could be mentioned.

The words "by chance" always come up when discussing evolution. However, no one would believe that a computer could come into being without an intelligent designer, or a watch or a building or a car or an airplane etc. Could a monkey set up the type for Lincoln's Gettysburg Address? How much more incredible is it to believe that the universe, it all its infinite complexity, could have "just happened" by chance.

One of the greatest scientists of all times, Einstein, formulated the necessity for a beginning "and the presence of a superior reasoning power, a creator". Edwin Hubble demonstrated Einstein's position in 1929 with his studies of the galaxies. Even Darwin in his book Origin of Species states, "To suppose that the eye, with so many parts all working together could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree".

There are currently many theories of evolution. A popular theory is "punctuated equilibrium", which is being promoted by Harvard's Stephen Jay Gould. If there is minimal evidence for the slow-and-gradual evolutionary process of neo-Darwinism, there is far less evidence for the invisible process of sudden evolution postulated by Gould and his followers.

A very interesting and strong comment about Gould has appeared recently. Even his critics grant that Dr. Gould is popular with lay readers, but this has also made him a favorite target of attack. In the New York Review of Books last year, John Maynard Smith, a prominent British evolutionist, said of him that "the evolutionary biologists with whom I have discussed his work tend to see him as a man whose ideas are so confused as to be hardly worth bothering with, but as one who should not be publicly criticized because he is at least on our side against the creationists".

Here are some questions about evolution.
1. Where, when and how did the first growing cells split into
plants for one and the fish, animals etc. for the other?
2. If through the evolutionary process, the functions of the body
get more advanced, why is it that a birds eye is up to ten times
better than mans?

There are two additional groups with theories about life: they are the "Theistic evolutionists" and the "Progressive evolutionists". According to Phillip Johnson, these groups want to preserve peace with the mainstream scientific community.

Theistic evolutionists therefore unwittingly serve the purpose of the scientific naturalists by helping to persuade the religious community to lower its guard against the incursion of naturalism. For evolution to be genuinely theistic God must guide it from the beginning or where He steps in from time to time to push things in the right direction. The Bible doesn't mention anything like this theory.

If anything now exists, then either that something must be eternal or something not eternal must have emerged from nothing. Say,

1. The universe is itself eternal and a product of change. Insert here the 2nd law of Thermo-dynamics: All matter loses energy and in the end maximum entropy (A state where all heat is gone) and everything is dead. Therefore, the universe is getting cold and running out of energy. If the universe is eternal, all things would already be dead. But we have a circular finite universe.

2. Is the universe and all that is in it an illusion? Is it really perceived in
our minds? This is a weak "off the wall" argument. If something is
predictable, it is not an illusion. i.e. Haley's comet, an eclipse etc.

3. The universe although not eternal, arose out of nothing. The 1st
principal of Physics states; From nothing-nothing derives!

4. The universe was created and is therefore finite. It was created by a
force we can't see or observe.

So, what does the evidence tell us? You be the judge!
