Intelligent creation vs natural selection

Natural selection is one of the supporting mechanisms for the Theory of Evolution. The basic way that it is supposed to work is that as the environment changes, the life form has to adapt with mutations that help it survive, or it dies off. Example: If you take a animal that is used to living in the hot climate of Africa, and put it in the cold weather of Greenland. Unless it grows more hair, and it’s body speeds up the metabolism to make more body heat, it will likely die. And the next generation won’t even be born with the adaptations. So the ongoing process of evolution cannot happen. But if the animal adapts then the next generation will more than likely get those traits.

Intelligent creation is where a animal was created already with the information, or not, in it’s DNA to adapt to such a situation as explained above. If it does have the information in it’s DNA, then it will survive. If it does not, it will die.

If Natural selection is true, then every situation concerning it can be explained. But Natural selection has many problems that only intelligent creation can explain. I will make a short list below:

  1. Symbiotic Relationships is just one problem. In the supposed evolution process, plants came before animal or insect life. And there has to be enough plants to make oxygen for the developing atmosphere. The problem is 75% of the existing plants on the planet require pollination. Pollination is done by insects. Insects were not around yet so any plant that required pollination died with no offspring. A perfect example of this problem is the problem of disappearing bees (bees dying due to pesticides etc…). Bees pollinate 70% of the food baring plants that humans and animals depend on for food. If the bees become extinct, so will most all life on earth. Natural selection cannot explain how this relationship between plants and certain insects came about. Nor how plants made it until certain insects arrived to pollinate them.
  2. Complexity in design of biological organs and complex systems. To say that a animal taken from Africa could survive the weather in Greenland through the process of natural selection is to say that biological cells have an intelligence to know exactly what is needed. How would biological systems or cells know that the body needs to grow more hair, or speed up the metabolism in order to stay warm enough to not die? Where is this information coming from? Another example is the eye. without going into detail about how real complex it is, I will touch on some things that most people don’t even think about.
  • How do the biological cells and existing system know where the eye should go?
  • How do the biological cells and existing system know what size and shape to make it?
  • How do the biological cells and existing system know that a special part of the brain is needed to process the information the eye will send it?
  • How do the biological cells and existing system know how that part of the brain will be able to process the information so we can see?
  • How do the biological cells and existing system know that clear fluid is needed to fill the eye so that light can pass through it?
  • How do the biological cells and existing system know that the fluid needs to be a certain pressure to keep the inflated but not damage it?
  • How do the biological cells and existing system knowthat according to size the lens needs to be a certain angle in order to focus?
  • I could go on and on for every system, and every organ. Example: Every system in the human body is interdependent upon another in order to work. There are 9 major systems in our bodies and not one of them can work without the other systems working at the very same time. So in other words. In the evolution process they would all have to evolve and be working at “exactly” the same time. This is impossible for 2 reasons. 1) Evolution Process does not have perfect timing to accomplish such a feat. 2) Every system has a different complexity which means no 2 system would require the same amount of mutations to evolve. The more mutations the more time. The more complexity in each mutation the more time. And this problem is not just for humans, but every living creature. Evolution would have to have perfect timing times how many creatures live on this planet.

So are biological cells and systems this smart to know exactly how to evolve, where to evolve, and when to evolve? Evolutionists think so with zero evidence to prove any of it. They believe that natural selection replaces all problems. This is also why they don’t like the word complexity. To test how natural selection cannot explain these things just ask some simple questions

  1. How did natural selection determine where the eye should go for each living creature? You see there is no randomness evidence that eyes were anywhere else as trial and error during the evolution process. Natural selection sopposedly got it right the first time.
  2. Which systems in the human body evolved first and how did it function until the other 8 major systems evolved? The common cop out answer is that they evolved all exactly at the same time. What you say to that is ask: So what you are saying is that evolution has perfect timing? You see perfect timing is admitting to intelligence because you have to be able to know when.
  3. etc…

Basically all you have to do as a creationist is study the human body and all the parts that make each system work and you will have endless debates that will reaffirm you faith in a Creator. And once you get that going then study the problems associated with systems and problems when man tries to fix things.

Example #1: Heart valves can leak , and become clogged with calcium buildup. When the heart valve is replaced with animal tissue or mechanical one. The person has to take blood thinners for the rest of their lives. The reason for this is because man cannot make heart valves as perfect as the Creator so that they don’t cause blood clots by damaging blood cells during the opening and closing process. How did the evolution process know to evolve heart valves so precisely as to not damage blood cells? You see in this it has to be perfect the first time. There were no blood thinners during the stages of evolving heart valves. So if it was not right when heart valves were needed, offspring dies and species becomes extinct.

There are several areas in human and animal bodies that if not right the very first time, species dies. And when it has to be right the very first time, natural selection does not even apply.

Example #2: The heart muscle is a special muscle. It never gets tired. If the supposed evolution process did not evolve this special muscle, the first lifeform to have a heart would die when born. This muscle also requires a special balance in our bodies of several chemicals in order to function like it does and not get tired. How did the biological cells that evolved know to have this chemicals already balanced in our bodies ready for this special muscle? Then the heat valves have to be perfect. Then the electrical part of the heart has to know what rhythm the heart needs to beat, and at what beats per minute. The heart has to be the right size in order to pump enough volume for a particular body size. etc…

Studying the human body and how everything works. And the problems that happen when they don’t will give the creationist easy arguments against evolution.

Simply Beautiful! Thank you Ray for sharing💗

I also love Unplanned by Matthew West

I am so glad I kept my son, especially when I learned about the different methods of abortion are done.

This song is incredible! Thank you for sharing, Ray. I will also post.

✅✅💯💯

TOP Fan Badge! But how 🤷‍♂️? (Pro-Choice 💯)

I dont know how i could be one of Ray comforts top fans i have been nasty to Ray because i didn't want to accept the truth so i attacked his personality and mocked him i have received this fan badge because Ray is so humble and forgiving i wish oneday to talk to him aswell as Justin Peters im in shock and apologize again for my arrogance and nastiness towards Ray and living waters the speak the truth and r for God

Why Were Dinosaurs so Large?

The following Math Matters article by Dr. Don DeYoung was published in Creation Matters, Vol. 19, No. 3, May/June 2014.

Even though giant dinosaurs get the most publicity, many dinosaurs were smaller. Of the hundreds of known distinct species, the average adult size was that of a dog or sheep. For example the adult Compsognath weighed about 15 pounds, the size of a large cat. The Psittacosaur was smaller yet, similar in size to a squirrel.

With that qualifier, however, the sauropod dinosaurs were truly impressive with massive torsos, pillar-like legs, and long necks. The herbivore Argentinosaur may have been the heaviest beast ever to walk on land. Also found in Argentina, the largest predator may have been Gigantosaur, an economy-sized Tyrannosaur 42 feet long and weighing 8 tons (Schreeve, 1997).

Table 1 gives the weights of several representative animals (DeYoung, 2000). The values given for dinosaurs are estimates based on the size of their bones and on reconstructed models. Uncertainties in actual dinosaur body weights may be as much as 50 percent due to incomplete fossil remains.

Many reptiles grow throughout their lifetimes, gradually tapering off with age. An example is the Nile crocodile, the largest of the living reptiles. Some mammals, such as elephants, also grow slowly throughout their lives. The largest dinosaur fossils, therefore, may be from creatures that had lived for centuries.

Two evidences suggest a rapid early growth rate for the dinosaurs. First, few halfgrown dinosaur fossils have been found. Thus, dinosaurs may have rapidly passed through their juvenile phases. It may also be that specimens having smaller, fragile bones simply did not often survive the burial and fossilization process. Second, dinosaur bone texture, especially for the stegosaurs, shows evidence of rapid youthful growth. Robert Bakker estimates that stegosaurs may have grown from an egg to five tons in just one decade (Bakker, 1986).

The creation view sees purpose and design in nature, including the impressive size of some dinosaurs. The long necks of the sauropods may have allowed them to eat the foliage from tall trees. In this way dinosaur parents could reach a higher food source and avoid competition with their young. However, some paleontologists doubt that sauropods could dinosaur size also provided defense against attack from smaller foes. In the animal world there is a measure of safety in large size. Predators rarely attack something that is big and strong enough to injure them.

There are physical limits to the maximum size a creature can attain because the supporting bones and muscles must increase rapidly as the animal’s weight increases. Consider elephant bones which are so large that the legs themselves must be greatly thickened. Whales require smaller bones because of water buoyancy, but are in danger of fractured ribs if stranded out of water.

Suppose we double the size of an animal in all three dimensions including its length, height, and width. The animal’s volume and weight will then increase 8 times (2^3). However, the bone strength only increases 4 times (2^2). This is because the bones’ supporting strength depends on the cross-sectional area. The numerical comparison made here is between volume and area. If we could make a creature 10 times larger, its weight would increase 1,000 times (10^3) while its bone strength becomes only 100 times greater (10^2). The implication is that, for large animals, bone size must increase disproportionately more than body size. Galileo first wrote about this limitation on large size in 1638, nearly four centuries ago.

Table 2 gives some comparative bone diameters for a variety of relative animal sizes. Animals much larger than the dinosaurs would require bones too bulky to be practical. Notice that bone size must increase substantially out of proportion to animal size. King Kong and Godzilla can exist only in movies—not in the real world. The same area-volume reasoning also limits the possible size of trees. Perhaps you have seen the wide trunk needed to support a 350-foot redwood tree.

When my kids were younger, I used to take every Halloween to teach them the concept of taxes. After they would trick or treat, I would gather them around and take 40% of their candy and explain that this is how it is when you grow up and the government gets 40% of your pay check. They didn’t seem to enjoy the lesson.😕

Better yet!! IF you have a home based business then stock up on your sample packages and hand them out to the people as they come to YOUR house on Halloween!!!

Curved illusions? Is that when people think they can see the horizon curve when looking out of a plane window?

This is repugnant and distasteful. How desperate.

Scripture tells us not to mix the Holy with the profane.

We don't miss this opportunity to share the gospel ✝️

I rubberband these to rocks and throw them at neighborhood kids...is that bad?😎

Be careful what you hand out in Canada, you can be charged with hate speech and given jail time for handing out tracts containing anything derogatory about homosexuality or abortion.

I so love this guy I wish I knew what he does.. he's a great man I so respect him... But even if he made a bad mistake and fell I know God would restore him and make him even better.. of course you only answer to god.. but Ray if you ever fall man please get back up and God will help ya get over the self condemnation..and all the stupid stuff.dont fall away in these last days.. remember the falling away in the last days that's not you don't you ever give up no matter what ok. Your gods man and millions need you..or I should say God working through you..please never stop being his tool I just know he wouldn't want that..your loved by God first and me and others second.. never stop your work for God.. and like I said even if ya ever messed up roaly it can be a better stepping stone.. not sure why I'm saying all this.. I guess it's because we and me never want you to stop what your greàt work is doing.. your appriciated and loved and you really need to know that

Need those here in Australia

I have always given out tracks to 'trick or treaters'. I know some people think it's not good to participate in Satan's holiday, if you will, BUT we have the Word of God to defeat him at his own game!! I would ALWAYS pray over them and for those who would get them. It's a WIN WIN for that day!!

Love it👍
