Questions: Atheist, evolutionists, and old earthers refuse to answer

Having debated many Evolutionists, I have heard just about everything (every answer to questions posed). As one Solomon said: “there is nothing new under the sun”. And I find several questions that Evolutionists will refuse to answer. They will either:

1) Change the subject.
2) Dodge the question.
3) Ignore the question
4) Act stupid (I don’t understand what you are asking).

The goal of these tactics is to always make those whom disagree with them to work harder at answering their question, and always hold their debate opponents to a higher standard then they hold themselves to.

When it would be better just to say: I don’t know. But because Evolutionists can never be wrong, “I don’t know” is not a thought that would ever cross their minds. I can count on one hand how many times I have heard an evolutionist say: I don’t know. So the egotistical response is from that list above.

What are some of the question they refuse to answer?

Before I begin, I must point out that some of the questions are not concerning biology. The Evolutionist will claim that because of this, it does not apply. Which would be wrong. Any support mechanism, idea or theory, that has to exist in order for evolution to work does apply. Like the millions of years required. So complain as they will, it just shows their desperation to keep a theory on top. When true proven facts should be able to hold their own on their own merit (evidence).

  1. Where did matter come from? In order for Evolution to work, all things are required to be explained “naturally” . And there is no natural explanation for matter just existing for no reason and no source. If you use deductive logic, what you end up with is that matter had to always exist. Which means there is an eternal dimension, which could contain matter and possible eternal beings. But science is not allowed to explore such possibilities because God is not allowed. So an answer is not really within their grasp.
  2. Where did the laws that govern our universe come from, and how were they balanced to work together? They cannot even begin to answer this question. Why? Because it would require them to ponder intelligence. That too is not allowed in science. In fact they don’t even know what laws are because you first have to define them as a substance in order to make them to come into existence naturally. But because laws do not exist in this state, there will never be an answer.
  3. Why does all matter date differently? In order for age dating to be “really accurate”, all matter should date back to its source. And according to the big bang, that source was over 10 billion years ago. Because if it all came from a dot, then it all should date back to that dot. But instead, what we see is that matter all around us dates differently. Now before anyone e-mails me, I do know how dating markers are left. I am just showing that those dating markers do not really tell how long that matter, being dated, actually existed.
  4. How do you compress all matter in the universe into a dot? In order for this to even be pondered to work, all the laws of physics have to be broken. Example: If you are debating someone who believes this happened, ask them to take a glass of water and compress it into a dot without making phase into anything else first in order to do it. You see even gas will phase into liquid if enough pressure is applied. But how do you get liquid to compress? How do you get a solid to compress? Science claims that extreme gravity will accomplish this. We have perfect examples of things that have enormous amounts of gravity (black holes, stars, and huge planets), yet not one that contains a large amount of matter is the size of a dot. When they compress a glass of water into a dot, show me. But the laws of physics won’t allow them to or it would have already been done.
  5. How does Evolution work around the immune system? The reason Evolutionist won’t address the immune system, is because the immune system actually fights change. They have no idea even where to begin to explain this. And what’s worse is that animal immune systems are stronger than humans. Which means the animal immune system will fight change even harder. How sensitive is the immune system? A person who gets an organ transplant often times cannot receive one from a family member. Now this would be change within the same species yet the immune system won’t allow it. In fact, the person receiving the transplant will have to take immune suppressant drugs for the rest of their lives. To stop would mean certain death.
  6. The human body has 10 interdependent systems that are required for life. Which one of these systems appeared first and how did it work until the others evolved? There is not one system in the human body that can exist without the other systems being in place. All systems work to one goal and that is to allow life. The usual evolutionist answer is: They all evolved at exactly the same time. The possibility of this is not even calculable. This is because each system has a different complexity, which means each system would require a different number of mutations to have evolved. And mutations take time, and the more that is required, the more time is required. And there is nothing in the evidence currently observed that shows any part of evolution has perfect timing.
  7. Why only use percentages when talking about the differences between Chimps and Humans? To get a percent you first have to have numbers to work from. Ever wonder why the numbers are “always” hidden? In fact if you ask a Evolutionist what the numbers are instead of the percentage, they won’t be able to tell you because they have not been told themselves. And just to show this point more, ask them to provide a book where the numbers that the percentage came from is even printed. It is hidden from the public for a reason. The human genome has over 3 billion base pairs. That would work out to be 30 million base pair differences in One whole percent (1%), And 300 million differences in 10%. So 1/10th (.1%) of a percent would equal 3 million (3,ooo,ooo) difference. And 2/10th (.2%) is 6 million differences. So 99% the same equals 30 million (30,000,000) differences. And 98% the same equals 60 million (60,000,000) differences. And as mentioned earlier, the immune system would fight such changes. Knowing how sensitive the immune system is, and now knowing the actual differences, how slow would the changes need to be so the immune system would not react? It would mean there would have to be at least 6 million missing links. Now what is the common excuse for not providing the actual numbers instead of just percentages? The public is too stupid to understand how evolution works. I have actually been told this. so basically the public is too stupid to understand simple math that shows evolution won’t work.
  8. Why the fossil record has life-form complexity even in the lowest layers? Evolution is supposed to be about simple life evolving into complex life. Yet complexity exists in the lowest layers. Example: The Trilobite and Nautilus both have fully formed organs and systems. There is no evolution tree to them showing how they evolved such complexity, and there is no evolution tree from them showing what they were evolving into. Basically the fossil record shows that these life-forms appeared on the scene all prepared with complexity ready to survive. In fact they are both also living fossils (alive today) basically unchanged. Complexity in the lowest layers shows that the fossil record support the flood. The Bible says that the Flood started by the fountains of the deep breaking up. What that means is that the bottom dwellers, complex and simple, got buried first. And that is exactly what we see. Then the mid ways dweller of the ocean, then the near top dwellers, then land animals. Which is exactly what we see.
  9. How would they explain perfect placement of our planet and solar system? Perfect placement of the planet to where it can support life is called the Habital Zone(link). The variables include: 5 types of stars which would change the distance the earth could be from the sun and be inhabitable. And whether the star is stable. The solar system placement is called the Galactic Habital Zone(link). Our solar system is just in the right place in our Galaxy, that does not have much dust, so we can see all the stuff the Hobble Telescope (link) takes pictures of. It is also located just right so we don’t receive harmful radiation to the degree it would kill us.
  10. How the earth, sun and moon are the correct sizes and distances to create a perfect total eclipse? As vast as space is, how do you get 3 objects at the right distances and size, to create a total eclipse so perfect that you are able to see the sun’s outer atmosphere? You see first the sun has to be a star that is stable (a Red Drawf star), which means a certain size as well. Then the earth has to be in the habital zone so that it can support life. Then the moon has to be a certain size and distance to cover the sun perfectly. And not be to close to our planet so that it’s gravity does not cause earthquakes with every orbit. This is because
    of the Inverse Square Law (link). Which say that 2 objects with gravity get closer, the pull of gravity between them quadruples. So sizes, correct position for life, gravity and inverse square law a factor, to create the perfect eclipse.
  11. Why being related is only referred to as common ancestor? The very thing that makes all life on this planet related, is the “common template” (RNA, DNA) that all life has. But instead of considering the “common template” for being related, we are instead referred to as “common ancestors” so that the evidence will “conform” to supporting evolution and nothing else. Conformism is not science.
  12. Why another template (RNA, DNA) never evolved? Since the supposed beginning of life abiogenesis (link), RNA and DNA has been a part of all life. If evolution is about evolving into complex and better things, why did not a better template evolve improving on the one we have? We have had the same template for life for millions of years, so why no change?
  13. Where is the dead matter to living matter (abiogenesis) evidence? Since the Stanley Miller experiment (link), there have been a few more trying to go further than the first experiment. There is not one of these experiments that have produced life, not one. Yet they will imply that making only 80% of the amino acids required for life equals life. As if the rest of the amino acids will poof themselves into existence. The other problem with every experiment is that 98% of what was made, along with the amino acids, is toxic to all life… And they also claim lightening made the amino acids. Lightening has around one million volts. The charge heats up hotter than that of the surface of the sun (link). The heat alone would vaporize any amino acids made. One million volts would not make amino acid structures, it would destroy it. Question: Did they use high voltage in their experiments to simulate “real world” conditions? of course not, they knew real lightening would destroy anything created the nano second it was created.
  14. Why all videos on evolution have to be mainly animated, yet evolution is referred to as a true-proven-fact? Is animation now considered evidence or proof for evolution? It would seem so because if you ask an evolutionists for evidence of the process of how something evolved, there is a very good chance they will refer you to one of these videos and try to claim or imply that this proves their claims. I work with flash animation from time to time. I know that if you animate what you cannot observe, your animation has to be totally done off of imagination. So is animation off of imagination proof for evolution? True proven facts do not require as much animation as evolution requires in order to understand it. Neither would it be required to totally animate a movie on it (Ice Age) to help sell the idea to our kids. True proven facts prove themselves on their own merits because the evidence and processes that are observable naturally instead of virtual reality. Example: If you play a shoot em up animated computer game on your PC, are you and the things you shoot real? Because if evolution were real as claimed, there ideas about it would not have to animated in the same fashion as a game.
  15. Darwin’s cousin headed up the eugenics movement, why hide this when teaching Evolution? Francis Galton, Darwin’s half cousin, headed up the Eugenics movement. This movement deemed all mentally ill and disabled Peoples as less than human. To keep them from reproducing, they were sterilized. For medical purposes, human experiments were done and left many scared, and many also died. Less than human means they were considered animals. And killing them this way was considered no worse than killing an animal. The main goal of this movement, which also found a following in the U.S., was to weed out the undesirables so that human perfection through Evolution could be achieved. This is also why Hitler liked this idea and supported the movement. Eugenics was an extension of Hitler’s own extermination of undesirable humans that was part of his hit-list.

Did you know that pigs like bobbing for apples just like people? 

Recently, on a warm day, Amos the KuneKune pig got to fish for some apple slices in a shallow kiddie pool full of water. You can see how much he enjoyed this enrichment! Zookeepers are always supervising while he plays.

Jeremiah 18:5-10
Then the word of the Lord came to me saying, “Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel. At one moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to uproot, to pull down, or to destroy it; if that nation against which I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent concerning the calamity I planned to bring on it. Or at another moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to build up or to plant it; if it does evil in My sight by not obeying My voice, then I will think better of the good with which I had promised to bless it.

Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

Genesis 13:8-10
So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, nor between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are brothers. “Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me; if to the left, then I will go to the right; or if to the right, then I will go to the left.” Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the valley of the Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere—this wasbefore the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah—like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt as you go to Zoar

Those who recline on beds of ivory
And sprawl on their couches,
And eat lambs from the flock
And calves from the midst of the stall,
Who improvise to the sound of the harp,
And like David have composed songs for themselves,
Who drink wine from sacrificial bowls
While they anoint themselves with the finest of oils,
Yet they have not grieved over the ruin of Joseph.
Therefore, they will now go into exile at the head of the exiles,
And the sprawlers’ banqueting will pass away.

Psalm 34:18
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Ezekiel 9:4-6
The LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, even through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark(𝘢 𝘛𝘢𝘷 𝘸𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘩 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘢 𝘤𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘴) on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations which are being committed in its midst.” But to the others He said in my hearing, “Go through the city after him and strike; do not let your eye have pity and do not spare. “Utterly slay old men, young men, maidens, little children, and women, but do not touch any man on whom is the mark; and you shall start from My sanctuary.”

1 Corinthians 11:23-26
For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

Humans Are Still Evolving, All Right

The following Speaking of Science article by David Coppedge appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 24, No. 3, May/June 2019.

Humans are still evolving? “Yes, we’re still evolving.”[1] Believe it…the caption says so! Author Hurst says that evolution happens by natural selection, except when it doesn’t. He’s exhibit A, evolving into an expert, just-so storyteller.

The natural selection of words[2] Authors Tourney and Mohammad should be nominated for the BAH! prize, having written the most absurd, self-refuting hypothesis in recent memory. If words evolve by “natural” selection, does this imply selfish memes rule language? If so, the humans don’t mean anything they say. Words are using them to pass on their memes. Cue sound of implosion.

These are scientists and reporters on acid. Dennett said that Darwinism is a universal acid. It eats away the brains of its disciples, turning them into storytellers in fantasyland. Lock them up before they cause any more harm.
