    I have found that a large part of primarily Young Earth Creationist Christian objections to evolutionary theory have nothing to do with the theory itself, and this Young Earth Creationist Christian rebuttal of the theory is no different NOTE TO YOUNG EARTHERS Evolution is primarily concerned with explaining biology, both historical and present Objections about evolution not explaining the origins of life, the origins of the universe, the age of the universe, etc are entirely disingenuous I have found that a large part of primarily Young Earth Creationist Christian objections to evolutionary theory have nothing to do with the theory itself, and this Young Earth Creationist Christian rebuttal of the theory is no different NOTE TO YOUNG EARTHERS Evolution is primarily concerned with explaining biology, both historical and present Objections about evolution not explaining the origins of life, the origins of the universe, the age of the universe, etc are entirely disingenuous because evolutionary theory has nothing to do with answering difficulties within those fields they are totally separate scientific spheres What Dr Jobe Martin whose primary schooling seems to be in dentistry is objecting to is about a dozen widely disparate fields like astronomy, geology, physics, information theory, etc that all tend to advance by assuming that there at least are no supernatural forces acting on nature I think from reading the book that Dr Martin has been misled by non sequiturs all round in areas outside his scientific purview, and took that to mean that Creation must be true, rather than that we need to as always before proceed in searching for the hidden factor in the equations.Many examples he presents are unconvincing, as evolutionary theory remember, primarily concerned with biology handily explains their existence e.g., Bombardier Beetles and the Argument of Design for a specific rebuttal to one of Dr Martin s examples Simply pointing to unanswered questions or inconsistencies in a field is not convincing evidence for their falsehood, especially when the field you are asking them to has nothing to do with answering them, or when your understanding of the evidence is faulty from the get go.Bonus Content most offensive quote of the book We do not need to accommodate Scripture to what we believe might be factual science Men, who have done this most probably in all innocence, violate a basic rule The Bible must never be subjected to science, but theoretical science must always be subjected to the Bible Emphasis in original One star for the dentist for managing to at least evoke a sense of wonder about the complexity and symbiosis present in nature something I find evolutionist books tend to forget

    I started this book in preparation for a lecture on Evolution vs Creation It did not take very long for me to realize that I have much to learn about the other side My background is one that I believe everything in the Bible to be fully trust worthy, without any error I still believe that after reading this book, but have a greater appreciation for the true science found in the Bible and seen in God s wondrous creation This book will be of great value for anyone on the fence about the deb I started this book in preparation for a lecture on Evolution vs Creation It did not take very long for me to realize that I have much to learn about the other side My background is one that I believe everything in the Bible to be fully trust worthy, without any error I still believe that after reading this book, but have a greater appreciation for the true science found in the Bible and seen in God s wondrous creation This book will be of great value for anyone on the fence about the debate and I challenge you to read it

    I ve been assigned some books to read from my parents, and from them I found this one to be the easiest to read Neatly written, using understandable words and terms.


  4. Connor Connor says:

    This is a great book about evolution and creation It gives many points on why evolution is false He explains how he was an evolutionist but the became a christian and became a creationist That s not the whole story He explains why a certain animals actually all, but he gives examples can t evolve.

    I just finished reading an excellent science book that any person can understand Dr Jobe Martin convincingly lays out the case against the scientific proof of the theory of macro evolution, showing the reader that both the evolutionist and the creationist relies on faith, rather than observational science Regardless of your belief about origins, you will learn a lot about science and the theories of evolution and creation I highly recommend adding it to your 2017 reading list Highlights I just finished reading an excellent science book that any person can understand Dr Jobe Martin

Highlights The Big Bang eternal matter and energy theory an infinitely dense speck of matter with infinitely powerful gravity pulling inward overcame its own inward pulling forces and exploded, sending forth all the contents of the universe simultaneously creating time and space , eventually resulting in stars, galaxies, oceans, mountains, and flowers, etc This has never been observed, requiring a lot of faith to believe The answer to the Missing Mass problem the Creator holds the universe together by His great power Hebrews 1, Colossians 1 God can create fully mature and functional systems Creation displays the triunity of God Universe space, time, and matter Atom protons, neutrons and electrons Space height, width, and depth Time past, present, and future Matter solid, liquid, and gas and Man body, soul, and spirit Seven basic assumptions of evolution 1 Spontaneous generation 2 Spontaneous generation occurred only once 3 Viruses, bacteria, plants, and animals are all related 4 Protozoa single cell gave rise to Metazoa multi cell 5 Various Invertebrate phyla are interrelated 6 Invertebrates gave rise to the Vertebrates 7 Fish gave rise to Amphibians which gave rise to Reptiles which gave rise to Birds which gave rise to Mamals Microscopic studies reveal consistent differences in cellular substance in various kinds of animals 1 Corinthians 15 39 Quote from page 46 From the biggest star to the smallest atom, the magnitude and complexity of the universe is unexplainable, except in terms of a creative Designer who is infinitely above any chance processes or human technology The Creator God designed His creation in such a way that as mankind studies it, he must either give God thanks and honor Him, or be reduced to foolish speculations and vain imaginations Romans 1 The law of Biogenesis life comes from life contradicts evolution Scientists have never seen electrons, but they know they are there based on observations of the results of electron activity it is similar to knowing God is there by observing His creation Romans 1 Evolution is based upon death promotes a value system that permits each individual to do what is right in his own eyes 24 contrasts between the Bible and evolutionary thinking are listed on pages 68 69 Molecular biology shows that animals which evolution expects to be closely related are unrelated at the molecular level No evidence at the molecular level of any or even a hint of transitional intermediate classes Evolutionary science has been proven false repeatedly when trying to show missing links Piltdown Man, Nebraska Man, Neanderthal, Cro Magnon Man, Peking Man, Java Man, Lucy, etc Richard Milton atheist and evolutionist In human anthropology, each new fragment of bone or tooth is enthusiastically greeted as further evidence of man s descent by natural selection from an ancestral apelike creature whenevery single find of this sort has been definitively assigned to either humans or apes, not to any intermediate category This intellectual degeneracy is the outward expression of the fact that neo Darwinism has ceased to be a scientific theory and has been transformed into an ideology an overarching belief system that pervades all thinking in the life sciences and beyond Dr Werner Gitt Information is non material, but it requires material media for storage and transmission Information is not life, but the information in cells is essential for all living beings Information is a necessary prerequisite for life Life is non material, and it is not information, but both entities, matter and information, are essential to life Dr Willard Libby, discoverer and inventor of the C 14 dating method, realized that if earth was 30,000 years old, C 14 and C 12 would be in equilibrium with each other, but there is actually 25% discrepancy between them Therefore, earth is less than 30,000 years old The wrong assumptions of dating methods 1 No original daughter element violates mathematical law by solving one equation with two unknowns age of the substance, original amount of daughter element 2 Closed system no contamination shown to be impossible in nature 3 Constant decay rate impossible due to varying radiation, heat, and pressure over periods of time Quote from page 222 the end result of not believing in a literal Genesis is murder, divorce, nudity, anarchy, etc The gradual weakening of earth s magnetic field establishes the age of the earth at 10,000 years Star clusters travel at supersonic speeds By now, these stars should have unclustered if the universe werethan a few thousand years old Why do some Christians believe in the virgin birth and resurrection of Christ, but not in the 6 day creation or global flood John 12 43 The global flood of Genesis makes macro evolution impossible because millions of years are needed for creatures and ecosystems to evolve Large dinosaurs were cold blooded and therefore needed a stable, warm tropical environment to survive pre flood water canopy conditions Large winged dinosaurs needed a heavier atmosphere to be able to fly pre flood water canopy conditions Proof that men and dinosaurs co existed cave paintings and overlapping footprints Quick frozen animals tropical animals in the arctic regions point to the breaking of the water canopy before the flood DNA is necessary to make protein and protein is essential for DNA to exist Therefore, both must have been created fully functional at the exact same point in time Quote from page 194 Language is caused by intelligence DNA is the language of the cell Therefore DNA had an intelligent cause Creatures that defy evolution Bombardier Beetle Irreducibly complex explosive chemicals, inhibitor, anti inhibitor, extra tough combustive chamber Incubator Bird How could a bird evolve the ability to precisely measure temperatures with its beak or tongue How would the incubator bird know it needed to keep its eggs at 91 degrees Fahrenheit The eggs are designed with thousands of tiny pores shaped like ice cream cones so that as the chick grows it begins to remove the inside layer of the shell in order to getair through the bigger pore holes Once they hatch they instinctively know to immediately dig straight up and out of their mound in order to survive Black and Yellow Garden Spider How does evolution explain the presence of an egg tooth in baby spiders How would spiders know to shed their skin to prevent dying How does the spider know exactly when to use the molting fluid too early or too late is fatal Gecko Lizard At least 500 million suction cups on his toes The Tokay Gecko uses Van der Waals forces short range bonds between molecules to adhere to slick surfaces when scurrying upside down across them Giraffe Irreducibly complex sponge and valves to regulate blood flow to and from brain Angler Fish Lighted bait could not have evolved given the time needed It has no swim bladder enables it to sink to the dark bottom of the ocean where it can hide from predators and use its light to attract prey and has a special body that protects itself from being crushed It has to have both at the same time in order to survive How did it learn to evolve those features without dying first The male bites the female s abdomen and their flesh circulation systems unite How did it evolve to do this Woodpecker Specially designed to withstand the constant pounding it experiences from pecking for insects in trees It also has a tongue that is several times longer than the average bird s tongue and in some species, it comes out from its head instead of its mouth It could not have evolved these features because it would have died first and there are no other birds with features like that

    Martin seems to shoot right past the fact the theory of evolution does not attempt to state where life itself originates rather, the methods by which we see changes over time He makes claims that his religious approach to creationism is also scientific yet denies the existence of any literally any evidence for evolution The starting assumption to his belief is the infallibility of the Bible, which is, itself, not solid, scientific bedrock from which to base one s following scientific theor Martin seems to shoot right past the fact the theory of evolution does not attempt to state where life itself originates rather, the methods by which we see changes over time He makes claims that his religious approach to creationism is also scientific yet denies the existence of any literally any evidence for evolution The starting assumption to his belief is the infallibility of the Bible, which is, itself, not solid, scientific bedrock from which to base one s following scientific theories The author uses numerous strawman arguments and lazy explanations of scientific studies every chapter, and at other times blatantly misrepresents his opposition ex the quote below All parentheses in original The atheistic evolutionist says there was no God, no higher power, no designer, and no person behind the beginning of life It was the impersonal no person, therefore mindless , plus time, plus random chance or, no one plus nothing equals everything So, even if the Stanley Miller experiments did prove chemical evolution is possible, which they did not do, you still have a personal designer Miller making his creation Does a personal designer scientist, doing experiments in a carefully controlled laboratory, prove that the creation of life occurred without any creator designer no God in a totally random chance primordial ooze NO Our God is worthy to receive honor and glory and praise because He created all things Rev 4 11 We can trust God and His Word, the Bible Nothing is too difficult for Him Jeremiah 32 17,27 He is the God of the impossible Like 1 37 MartinI chose this quote in good faith because it was formatted as a standalone piece in the book p.51 There s an example of the above quoted, insincere drivel on almost every page of this book First, an observer is needed to conduct any experiment if no experiments can sway the author s view then what possibly could some would say such is the power of his faith to which I would say, stop applying your faith post hoc to matters better explained by science experimentation the Catholic church has some great examples of religion treading in scientific territory Second, do your own research into the very fine limits of what the Stanley Miller experiments tried, and succeeded in proving

    I think Jobe martin did an excellent job of providing a good defense for the biblical view of creation against the world view of evolution He dips into some of the scientific proofs of a young earth that many so called learned scholars reject, even though they have yet to come up with one single proof of macroevolution Because of his unique position of going from being an evolutionist to becoming a creationist, it is a good book to layout many reliable points of a created world by an intellige I think Jobe martin did an excellent job of providing a good defense for the biblical view of creation against the world view of evolution He dips into some of the scientific proofs of a young earth that many so called learned scholars reject, even though they have yet to come up with one single proof of macroevolution Because of his unique position of going from being an evolutionist to becoming a creationist, it is a good book to layout many reliable points of a created world by an intelligent designer Get it for yourself and then pass it along to someone that needs to see that science and the Bible are not at odds


  8. Matthew Hyde Matthew Hyde says:

    I felt that the book did a great job covering the creation view of science The author did a very well in presenting his points and backing them up with logic and science Great read for those who want to know another side of science.


  9. Beka Beka says:

    So much wonderful information that s very helpful to a Christian I especially enjoyed the chapters on the flood and the water canopy I don t remember hearing that information before, but it makes so much sense Definitely a book that every Christian should own and read.

    Fantastic testimony of a college professor that is respectfully encouraged by some students to explore the Truth of God as Creator of our world.
