The focus of Truth in Science, a Christian organization headed by renowned authors and professors of science from leading universities, is on scientific evidence in support of Creation. The organization recently issued a statement deploring the government's announcement that the teaching of the Biblical origin of man to nursery children equates to "extremism."
What the secularized British government deems rational because supposedly "scientific" is the anti-human idea that matter, if given enough time (billions of years), " will turn into people. This is scientifically preposterous and based on the "religion of atheistic humanism / atheistic naturalism.” (Christianconcern.com, August 14th, 2014)
In whatever form it takes, whether Darwinism, Teilhardism, or progressive creationism for example, evolution is radically hostile to the Word of God. The Bible clearly asserts that the Triune God created heaven and earth in six days. Evolution either negates God outright or demands the Genesis account be allegorized or interpreted away. Either way, every doctrine of Scripture is undermined leaving Scripture without meaning and purpose.
Because our Heavenly Father created all things, He and He alone is the sustainer, governor, and redeemer of all things. Man is God's creation, thus responsible to Him and totally under His law. God is man's savior because as creator He alone is omnipotent over man and the universe and sufficient for all things. God is man's judge because he is man's creator, and He created man for His own purposes and glory. If God's creative work is denied, then His governance and redemption are also denied, because God is made irrelevant to man and to the universe.
What the doctrine of evolution has done is to destroy man's inner person, not the Triune God. A theory cannot alter ultimate reality. It can, however, affect the mind and welfare of man. How has it done so?
First of all, according to evolution man is no longer viewed as created in the spiritual image of the Triune God. According to Scripture, man was created in God's image, and, although fallen, is under God's law, meaning man cannot be reduced to a bio-machine, hominid or ape.
Just as the Sabbath was made for man, and not the reverse, so too the state is made for man, not man for the state. The world is man's dominion under God. But evolutionary theory views man as an evolved product within the evolving universe of matter and energy, therefore instead of being set over nature, man is set within and under nature as a product of it. Thus man the bio-machine is reduced to the same slavish status as existed during antiquity in ancient Egypt and other states which held to an evolutionary concept.
Man is a person endowed with unalienable rights because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. Man's worth, dignity and liberty are fruit of Biblical faith. The concept of evolution destroys man's inner person and sets him within nature, thus it produces slavery, a necessary foundation for socialism. When man is a product of nature his being is determined by and therefore passive toward nature, and his psychology a reflex action rather than a governing action. When man knows himself to be created by his Heavenly Father, and this faith is basic to his thinking, man is a product of God's creative work and while passive in relationship to God is active towards nature. He is then determined by God, not by nature, and is then active towards nature and governs it. Man as the product of God's creative work is free from nature, not a slave of it, because man is created and governed by God, not by nature:
"Where men are not ruled by God, they are ruled by tyrants. And the rise of evolutionary thinking has produced a world-wide rise of totalitarianism. Since man is no longer seen as a creation by God, he is becoming a creature of the total state, and the total state is determined to remake man in its own image. As a result, man is now the primary experimental animal. Many people are alarmed at the use of animals in scientific experimentation. But the grim reality is that the primary experimental animal is man. Not only the mental health experts, but virtually every agency of civil government is today engaged in trying to remake man. Moreover, scientists are engaged in experiments concerning psychochemical and electronic controls over man." (Rushdoony)
For more than 100 years Western Europe, quickly followed by America have been rejecting their Christian foundations in favor of evolutionary scientism. When Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species was published on November 24,1859, all 1,250 copies sold out on the day of publication. Apostatizing Westerners and Americans alike had long been waiting for a theory with scientific prestige to render the Bible and the God of Revelation obsolete, thus they immediately jumped on the bandwagon of Darwinism. George Bernard Shaw described the relief of men at being rid of the Triune God and declared the world jumped at Darwin. ( Is Evolution Proved?, Dewar and Shelton, p. 4, cited by R.J. Rushdoony, The Necessity for Creationism)
Quickly following suit, a great many compromising churchmen climbed aboard the Darwinian bandwagon to be rapidly followed by many more pied pipers right into our own time. For such people the appeal to compromise is irresistible. Why not be fashionably "scientific," or scientifically respectable? If the Genesis account of creation is such an embarrassment, why not accommodate the Bible to evolution? Why defend unscientific creation ex nihilo and risk being considered ignorant and backward despite St. James warning,
"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2:10).
Similarly, anyone who denies the authority of Scripture at one point has denied it at all points. Rushdoony comments:
" If we assert that we can set aside the six-day creation doctrine, we have asserted our supremacy over Scripture. Our mind and our convenience now have a higher authority than the Bible, so that we have denied its authority totally and asserted our authority instead. If we claim the right at any point to set aside Scripture, we have established ourselves as the higher authority at every point. Clearly, therefore, the question of authority is at stake in Genesis 7: God or man? Whose word is authoritative and final?"
Today it's no longer easy to be a faithful Christian in what once was Christendom and Protestant America. Evolutionary modernists, that is, atheists, their New Age occult pantheist and compromising theological counterparts despise us if we affirm that the God of Revelation called creation into existence ex nihilo. The ugly intimidation to remain silent is insidious and growing.
Either the Bible is not all it claims to be or it is all it claims to be because it is the inerrant Word of God, and God does not lie but rather Satan, his legions and men do. The fashionable view today however, affirms the trustworthiness of sinful men filled with lies over our Heavenly Father and evolutionary science and higher criticism over His Word. This is why an affirmation of creation elicits hoots of derision, condemnation as anti-science, backwards fundamentalism and charges of child abuse and mental insanity.
For Western atheists, pantheists and compromising theologians to willfully choose not to believe the Genesis account is one thing, but the hundreds of years old concerted drive on a global level to diminish, devalue and demolish the Word of God and the Genesis account in particular and psychologically crucify the faithful is something else.
While most written works of men are subjected to literary criticism, the world today is witnessing a strange yet consistent phenomenon when it comes to unrelenting destructive criticism of the Bible. According to Dr. Bill Cooper, Vice President of the Creation Science Movement in England, many "colleges, universities, seminaries and schools around the world are dedicated" to the literary criticism of the Word of God, a phenomenon that,
"....is consistent down the ages and across the world, and involves a countless multitude of hammers being worn down to nothing, or shattered to pieces as they strike against this particular anvil, and all to none effect. Indeed, so consistent, predictable and inevitable is the phenomenon, that one wonders why they bother. But bother they do, and they must be answered." (The Authenticity of the Book of Genesis: A Study in Three Parts, Cooper, p. 7)
The one book of the Bible that consistently receives the heaviest onslaught of enraged hammers is the Book of Genesis. After all, with no Book of Genesis there is no Creation ex nihilo, and with no creation, there is no Fall of man, no need of repentance and the Good News of Christ, no heaven, no hell, and no future Paradise.
Not only have anti-Creationists of every stripe challenged, denigrated and written off the historical statements of Genesis as myth but they challenge its age as well. Indeed, modernists write the Book of Genesis off with spurious claims of it being nothing more than a borrowed account filched from the myths of Babylonia, the mother of all post-flood evolutionary cosmogonies, Mystery Religion, gnosis, secret rites, initiations, sorcery, witchcraft, and divination.
In Dr. Cooper's impressively researched three-part study he takes on the challenges of globally accepted modernist opinions of Scriptures, exposes their spurious claims, dishonest scholarship, revisionist history, intolerance, censorship, and insidious intimidation.
Cooper argues from hard evidence that the Bible is historically accurate in everything prophetical, geographical, linguistic and doctrinal. Part One of his book deals with the antiquity of Genesis, showing how its component parts are considerably older than any of the post flood evolutionary cosmogonies such as the Babylonian Enuma Elish proposed by modernists as a source for the Bible.
Part Two digs into pre-Christian Flood traditions found around the world. Cooper shows that all together these flood traditions present a formidable evidence for the truth of Genesis when it speaks of the flood of Noah.
Finally, Part Three draws the reader's attention to the Atrahasis narrative, an ancient clay tablet that makes nonsense of Modernist claims that the Genesis Flood account is filched from the Epic of Gilgamesh. Cooper calls this amazing tablet the Genesis Flood Tablet.
Modernism is an anti-Triune God, anti-Genesis account program consisting of many interwoven threads from Darwinian atheism to evolutionary New Age pantheism and evolutionary theology, all of them bristling with hostility toward the God of Revelation, the Book of Genesis and all faithful believers and defenders.
The vicious name-calling, seething resentment toward and censorship of the six day creation account and of all who profess and teach it should raise the eyebrows of any rational thinking person. If evolution really is a fact of science then why the irrational name-calling, ridicule, scorn, shunning, resentment, intolerance and demonization?
The answer is that the zealous modernist--the worshipper of the 'god' evolution---is the Spirit of our age that emerged out of the Renaissance whose answer to the Lord Jesus Christ is the Cross (crucify Him) and whose fulfillment will be the Wicked One. (2 Thess. 2:1-8)
From the Renaissance to our own time the Spirit has been lying, censoring, transgressing, blaspheming, and departing that it need not obey His voice. Like a dog returning to its own vomit, the Spirit has returned to its first love: the cult of demons in the Godless universe of matter, psychic energy, and animated forces where time is changed, past history rendered meaningless, and the liberated Spirit imbibes the cup of wrath, an intoxicating mixture of Babylonian Mysteries, incantations, spiritism, Gnosticism, sorcery, witchcraft, Hermetic magic, Kabbalah, reincarnation, astrology, and other devilish occult traditions.
The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of an occult pagan Mystery religion based on advaitic monism, science of magic transformism (evolution, transmutation), exalted priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, androgyny, sexual perversions, and other evils.
Babylon embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." The root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....Lucifer:
".... the Great Lie (is) the foundation stone of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, the Kabala, the Greek Hermetic, Eleusinian and Gnostic beliefs, Neo-Platonism, all the occult creeds from Theosophy and the Masonic orders to the Rosicrucian's (and) the New Age movement. The Great Lie is...the belief that man is God, that his true identity is the immortal self...that as God, he will never die (and) Sin and depravity are...illusions since this inner divinity is at man's core." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal, Vol. 29:2-29:3, 2005)
Though the Spirit of our age claims the title "I AM" it nevertheless follows after and falls down before other fascinating men: theoreticians of evolutionary science, nature philosophy and evolutionary pagan theology. These charismatic Pied Pipers are possessed of surpassing powers of persuasion and inflexible determination of will to which the Spirit assigns more honor than to anything else.
The Spirit has usurped the throne of the Word Incarnate (John 1:1) because He is not good, not just or benevolent but a devil, an evil Tyrant Who, with His infliction of suffering in this life and eternal punishment in the next must be deposed. (Psalm 2:2-3)
Blaming our Lord for their own sins the proud, self-righteous Spirit of rebellion, hypocrisy and negation says to Him, "...you are not my father." My father is the god of forces, therefore:
"I am I, I come out of myself, and in choice and action I make myself." (Daniel Bell, quoted by Herbert Schlossberg in "Idols for Destruction," p. 43)
In the final analysis, the modernist Spirit of our age is the "striving human will" seeking desperately to launch itself,
"...into minor godhood in an evolving cosmos through the mechanisms of directed spiritual evolution, spiritualized science and spirit contact." The 'new' spirituality now presents itself as the "rightful replacement for the Revealed Word (and) proclaims its spiritual liberation from the worldview that informs Christianity and its freedom from (the) personal and wholly other God. But this new way of self-salvation (is) little more than the refurbishing of an ancient spiritual mistake." (The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition, James A. Herrick, p. 279)
Modernists are on a collision course with the final version of the pre-flood world catastrophe – and we know how badly that ended.
