    Creation and Evolution Beliefs

    Creation and evolution beliefs are just that – a topic that deals with looking at the evidence and perhaps with a different conclusion. In this podcast, Felice shares her research with a creation scientist as well as her curriculum that has received inclusion in Cathy Duffy’s 100 and 101 Top Homeschool Curriculum. Jill Whitlock and Felice Gerwitz co-authored a series of curriculum for the homeschool and Christian school market. You can find our books at MediaAngelsMembership.com as well as on Amazon.

    Creation and evolution beliefs can follow you anywhere!

    Felice attended a health conference for doctor’s and one talk was entitled the Embryo Defensive Human Life. And as you know, with a topic of a creation and evolution, that's one of the big things that come up with a definition of what human life is. The talk was hosted by professor Robert George, he is a Princeton University professor. What was amazing was the fact that the discussion these days has gone to the definition of life, as a Christian, I believe that life is at the moment of conception and the human embryo is totally human. It is a humankind. It has a potential to grow into an adult. Professor George had to be transported to and from the airport by a deputy sheriff of Lee County. And it was, I'm sure for his safety, he had to be escorted because he has had death threats on his life. While we may consider that we live in a free society when you see things such as this, it is hard to believe. And right now I just praise God that there is this ability to speak frankly about the importance of the beginning of life, which is important to the future of our children! Be sure to teach your children that God created is wonderful, commendable, and should be done.



    He's written many books and was so articulate and so logical to me that much of it dovetails into this discussion of creation and evolution. Let me just preface this, talk with a couple of things and one of them is my lack of knowledge beginning any discussion on the topic. I met Jill Whitlock many years ago now and she was a scientist. She was an oil and weld geologists by degree. And when I met her she was telling me about the topic of creation and evolution.

    Teaching Creation and evolution beliefs side-by-side is important.

    I had just attended a conference at the state convention the year before. And I said I was left with a lot of questions. I bought a lot of books, but I didn't know what to do with these books. She had made a ten-year study at the time and invited me over. She started out the discussion with the second law of thermodynamics and I hit pause on the recorder and I said, okay, we need to stop here. I didn't even know there was a First Law of Thermodynamics and here you are talking about a second Law of Thermodynamics. And I said, well, what is the thermodynamics? After we stopped laughing she went on and explained and opened my eyes to the world of science and how important it was to teach both concepts to your children.



    Many times in our in our homeschool world, children are taught biblical principles and are taught values, virtues, and character qualities. And all of these things are very important and very pivotal. And I do this as well in my own schooling of my children. But I want to challenge you to go one step further and I want to challenge you to consider teaching creation and evolution side by side.



    And here's the reason why. For many, many years, I've had friends in all walks of faith in the homeschool world and outside of it...

    This podcast was an original work of the Creation Science Expo that I had the pleasure of hosting some years back, it is my pleasure to re-release it to you and share the importance of caring about our origins.

    Many times I've discussed the purpose of having a creationist perspective, and people would say, "Why do you care?" The reason I care is that I want my children to grow up with a Christian worldview and share that with their children, someday. In the writing of my Truth Seekers Mystery Series book, I had a "God-incident" that I share in this episode.



    In a nutshell, I was rushed during the Christmas season and wanted nothing to do with the rereading of the draft copy of one of the novels. You see, as a novelist, and co-novelist at the (along with my then, college-aged daughter, Christina), I was the one in charge of final proofreading and I kept finding mistakes. I was frustrated. I threw up a heavenward prayer, "God are you sure you have the right person doing this job?" And, I wasn't talking about the job of editing, I was talking about the job of being the "hands and feet" of God - spreading the word about the fallacies of evolutionary claims. Which these novels demonstrate in a fun-easy to read and mystery adventure. More about the TruthSeekersMysterySeries.com here.



    Heading to a store to do last minute shopping, I happened upon a calling card placed in a nativity scene I was about to purchase. (The audio includes details about this, but here is the visual -- a copy of the card:

    Creation Anatomy

    Creation Anatomy

    Creation Anatomy

    Creation Anatomy is a study of looking at the body through a different set of lenses, lenses with a creationist perspective. Can you see God's creation in the human body? The answer is yes!



    God's creation is good -- studying anatomy with a Biblical perspective means starting in the book of Genesis.

    God created man with a purpose we are His special creation!

    We are the "body" of Christ!



    In our book, Creation Anatomy: A Study Guide of the Body there is a chapter on the price of the human body.

    However when you add up all the parts of the human body down to its chemical composition -- God created us with an eternal soul and that means we are priceless!

    Our body doesn't only operate on an elemental level -- it also functions on the molecular level and the most complex of all of our molecules in hemoglobin.

    Any attempt to make man has failed. There is not a biochemical company that could put it all together and not enough money in the world to buy all the elements you need for our body.



    That is an amazing testament to the awesome power of God.



    Our body works in the most complex way.

    We have different fluids

    75-trillion cells

    Our cells require oxygen, burns fuel, gets hot, needs to cool, performs work and gives off exhaust -- "gas"



    * Studying Creation Anatomy we delve into the miracle of the body:

    * Oxygen reaches the destination which diffuses into the cell

    * The same moment the blood carries exhaust gasses from the cell

    * The exhaust gases are tissue cells in CO2

    * C02 plus water equals carbonic acid

    * And it must be neutralized instantly

    * Naturalized red cells take it to the bloodstream

    * Bloodstream combines with salt and plasma which equals sodium bicarbonate

    * Harmless and carried to lungs

    * Lungs are not equipped to exhale waste

    * in the lungs -- bicarbonate ions join with protons from hydrogen to form carbonic acid that breaks down to form carbon dioxide gas and water

    * It passes through the capillary wall to the lungs to be exhausted

    * Same instant red cells pick up another fresh load of oxygen and begin the journey again.

    What Happened To The Dinosaurs

    What Happened To The Dinosaurs

    For Kids! What Happened To The Dinosaurs? Episode 7

    To understand a bit about what happened to the Dinosaurs, it is best to begin in Genesis. Understanding how man sinned shows us that the Garden of Eden a haven for Adam and Eve and all the animals became a world far from perfection.



    Then along came Noah! He was a righteous man and he saved the animals at the time of The Flood. While some think the flood was only in specific areas of the world, this is not true! You can find more information about Flood Geology in the book Creation Geology a Study Guide to Fossils, Formations & The Flood. The Flood was worldwide, the podcast contains information about some of the ways we know this.



    The Ark design was unique (Genesis 6:14-16) There was room for 2 of each animal, food and storage, Noah and his family. The ark design is one of the most stable of any boat. When God said He wanted Noah to take two of each kind, what does it mean? A “kind” is not a “species.” For example, a “dog kind,” includes dogs, wolves, coyotes, etc.



    What Happened To The Dinosaurs?



    Where are the dinosaurs? Dinosaurs were believed to be on the ark. Juvenile dinosaurs were onboard and the average size of the dinosaur was the size of a small chicken. So, for all those skeptics, yes – dinosaurs were on the ark!



    When the rains stopped and the flood waters receded, 150 days later the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The mountains became visible in the tenth month.



    Before the Flood, the earth was warmer. It is believed there was more carbon dioxide in the air that made the plants and animals grow bigger (and people lived longer). There are many plants and animals found in the fossil record that did not survive the flood.



    What Happened to the Dinosaurs? 



    After the flood, many plants and animals died and the dinosaurs and other large creatures could not live in the reduced atmosphere or without some of the plants that did not survive, so they became extinct. Many plants and animals were buried rapidly which caused fossils. Fossils are often found in groups. The rocks showed the catastrophic deposits with large scale erosion into the newly deepened oceans. There was also a post-flood Ice Age.



    Geologic formations formed and the rapid burial showed that many fossils found were not commonly found together in nature. The Fossils were only preserved when they are rapidly buried.

    The Four Great Global Events of Genesis The Flood



    As we talk about the Genesis Global Flood and its significance, it is important to, first of all, determine if it was a global or a local event. Did the Flood cover the whole earth or just Mesopotamia?



    Genesis indicates that the Flood was global, affecting all of the earth. If this was not the case, then the rainbow that the Lord gave as a sign of His promise would have been a promise given just to the people of Mesopotamia and would have had no significance for the rest of the world. Why does the world need to be reminded that the Lord would never flood Mesopotamia again? This would have been a huge waste of time and space to take four chapters of Genesis to tell a story that is irrelevant to future generations.

    Global Flood:

    We also need to decide if the story of the Flood is anything more than a myth. It is true that the Flood cannot be proven by science, but the same is true of the uniformitarian view of our earth. Uniformitarianism also can not prove that the earth is a product of processes over millions of years. To be classified as science, it must be able to be tested, observed, and repeated. This is not possible with uniformitarianism.



    Scripture is not intended to be a scientific dissertation on geology, but it is a historical record that presents the global Flood as a real historical event. The real question to address is, can the Flood explain the geological landforms, rocks, and fossils that we see today? And the answer is, yes.

    Global Flood:

    There are two major stages as recorded in the Scripture concerning the Flood – the filling stage, or the inundation stage. This is found in Genesis 7:23-24. The second stage, the receding stage, is found in Gen 8:1-16. Although there is no scientific terminology in either of these passages, there are quite a few geological implications in these passages.



    Here are the verses and activity/geological implications:



    Gen.7:4 – Extinction



    Gen. 7:11 – Tectonic upheaval



    Gen. 7:11 – Torrential and violent rain, massive flooding



    Gen. 7:17 – Massive amounts of rock and sediment torn up and moved



    Gen. 7:18 – The waters and their strength increase, causing erosion and transportation of sediments



    Gen. 7:19 – The Flood was deep, covering the entire earth



    Gen. 7:21 – The Flood was devastating to life, which is what the fossil record shows



    Gen. 7:22 – Dead things buried in rock layers all over the earth



    Ge. 7:23 – All air-breathing, land-dwelling life outside of the ark perished



    Gen. 7:24 – It took 150 days for the water to reach a maximum depth



    Gen. 8:1 – Water draining off the earth carved great ravines, channels, and planation surfaces



    Gen. 8:2 – Wet sediments torn up by the Flood begin to settle



    Gen. 8:3 – Receding flood waters would have caused rapid and catastrophic cutting and planation



    Ge. 8:5 – Continued planation and channelized erosion



    Gen. 8:34 – Some sediments during this time would have hardened, others would have warped during the tectonic processes of the Flood

    Biblical Creation vs. Evolution:

    A quick definition of Biblical Creation begins with the Creator God. A Creator God began the world with His Word. Genesis 1:1: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."



    Evolution - by definition is a change over time, it is a two-step process.

    1. The theory that life began spontaneously on its own

    2. Darwin's theory of simple life evolving into more complex



    The terminology is confusing.

    Terminology is everything. "He who defines the term wins."



    What is in a word?

    Creation:

    1. Creation science

    2. Biblical Creation

    3. Old Earth Creationist



    Evolution:

    1. Macro Evolution

    2. Convergent Evolution

    3. Darwinism

    4. Neo-Darwinism

    5. Old Earth

    6. Theistic Evolution



    God created the world with His Word. Genesis 1:1



    Do you believe that God created? It is a matter of faith, evidence points to a Creator.

    Intelligent Design:

    An "Intelligent" Designer began the world

    Science points to order not disorder

    Evolution does not make sense in regard to life beginning by accident

    The Designer could be:

    1. God (for Christians)

    2. Aliens

    3. Unknown



    Adaptation:



    Scientists are conflicted and confused when discussing this aspect of evolution. The idea that traits are inherited by use and disuse is unscientific. The theory is that an organism adapts or alters according to certain genetic limits or due to circumstances.



    Creationists do believe that adaptation does happen within certain generic limits. Adaptation happens within a kind. For example, there are different kinds of dogs, cats, finch, etc.



    However, dogs remain dogs. New creatures or new features are never observed through adaptation.



    Speciation:

    1.Evolution of populations with species

    2. Evolutionary biologists involved in the debate over what the term means

    3. Based on the word "species"

    4. Signifies a small step along evolution from one basic kind to another (false)

    5. Variation should be used instead

    6. Changes that occur with certain characteristics



    Evolutionary scientists:



    1. Have faith in evolution

    2. Will not back down even with the lack of evidence

    3. Bottom line: atheists, agnostics or Bible believers who see evolution evidence through evolutionary filters

    4. Those who believe God created the world as stated in Genesis

    a. take Genesis and the entire Bible in faith

    b. Believe science confirms the Bible

Love

I fell in love with Felice's creation stuff years ago when I read her daughter and her books. This is an awesome addition to those books and you will learn so much, even as a parent about this amazing world that God has given to us.

I don't want to nickname ,

Clear and Interesting

Great info. Very interesting and clear explanations. I’m looking forward to listening to these a second time with my kids.
