Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Genesis on Trial

6And God said, Let there be a firmament [the expanse of the sky] in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

How amazing it is that the clouds are filled with trillions of tons of water. Most people have no idea that the average puffy raincloud weighs something like 350 thousand tons, and yet it floats like a feather and waters the earth so that food can grow and feed man and beast. Scripture tells us that it was God who divided the waters in the heavens from the waters on the earth.

The heat from the sun causes the oceans to rise into the heavens, leaving their salty taste and in time, the evaporated oceans fall back down onto the earth to give life to its inhabitants. Without this process, we wouldn’t have a green life-giving earth. It would mostly be dry and fruitless desert, but for the irrigation waters that man is able to bring from lakes in different parts of the earth.

The perfectly balanced division of the oceans from the mass of water in the clouds didn’t come about by causeless accident, as evolution believers and atheists believe. The "Big Bang" folks are shallow in their understanding of the water cycle and its origin. Big bangs produce chaos not order.

9And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas: and God saw that it was good.

Only in recent years has science discovered that there are mountains and valleys under the seas. It was assumed by experts that the sea bottom was just flat land. But it’s not. It's massive mountains and deep valleys, because God caused the dry land to "appear." These appeared as the seas receded, because God was the Cause.

Many atheists believe that we originally evolved from fish. Some think that all land animals trace their roots back to fish called Eusthenopteron, which was the first fish to evolve dual gills/lungs and then spend part of its life on land. But the Bible says that we were created as dry-earth creatures, with arms and legs, skin, and lungs. Still, those who believe in evolution don’t believe we were made as we are. Instead, they postulate that we once didn't exist, and then we miraculously appeared and became a primitive life form, that over time became sea-dwelling creatures.

The theory goes that we temporarily left other sea-dwelling creatures and crawled onto dry land to evolve (over time) lungs and a heart that could accept oxygenated blood, while under the water. Then, with primitive legs that had also evolved, as a "population" we ventured onto the dry land and over millions of years, decided to stay permanently.

Evolution's followers don’t know why we made the decision to leave. We just did, and so here we are on the dry land that came about by chance, with no rhyme, no reason, and no purpose. It's not "good" as the Bible says. It just is. Evolution-did-it.
