They claim that, in their zeal to answer
evolutionists, well meaning but ignorant men invented a "gap
theory" in order to account for the geological ages. Nothing is
further from the truth.
Had these "creation scientists" adhered to
the Scriptures, they would have not become like the evolutionists, who
worship their own knowledge, and look to this present world for all
answers, despite the curse visited upon it.
They would not be examining a sin-cursed earth for
any evidence other than the evidence that the wrath of God is in store
from heaven; this earth is reserved for fire.
Science" Is Intellectually Dishonest.
Most believers have never learned why it is that many
believe Satan fell between verses one and two of the Bible. No problem
for the "Creation Science" teacher who himself has ordinarily
not properly considered when the angels were created, nor when Satan
fell, nor many, many other issues about which the Bible teaches.
He will tell his Christian audiences that those who
place Satan’s fall in that time period have very many strange beliefs
not found in the Scripture. He will say they believe in a pre-Adamite
race of men and animals. He will say that they improperly translate the
Scripture. He will say they cannot account for large reptile fossils.
He will say that those who actually WORK in the
Scriptures are unable to contend with the great men of science spinning
the evolutionary tales, but that THEY THEMSELVES ARE capable, because
THEY ALSO look into the fossil layers.
How horrible it is to perpetrate on the entire
Christian community that it is necessary to know all of the pitiful
facts and speculations about the earth’s crust in order to properly
understand God’s Word!
What these "scientists" will NOT do is
fairly rehearse the powerful arguments of the Scripture that their
"victims" cite, nor will they deal with the entire range of
considerations their "victims" address.
For the true Bible student is careful to compare and
harmonize Scripture with Scripture, and is also careful to see precisely
what the Scripture states and does not state.
Some of the fruit of this study will appear here
below, and the reader is well advised to, like the noble Berean, search
the Scriptures daily to see if these things are so.
Science" demonstrates Willful Ignorance.
2 Peter 3:3-7 "Knowing this first, that
there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own
lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the
fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning
of the creation.
For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the
word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the
water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being
overflowed with water, perished:
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the
same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of
judgment and perdition of ungodly men."
Some of these professors of "Creation
Science" actually refer to the earth of Genesis 1:1 as "the
world that then was" demonstrating the true willingness of their
When the Scripture calls the ignorance of the world
of Genesis 1:1, - which perished, being overflowed
with water – "willful", we should be very careful to note
those who exhibit such ignorance.
No one even causally reading the Bible would regard
that the earth before the deluge of Noah’s day and after the deluge of
Noah’s day was somehow a different earth, and different heavens. They
earth was substantially changed by the deluge, and in fact was changed
later than that as well. But it remained the same earth.
The Scriptures (above) teach that this same earth
that is now (and was for Noah), is also reserved for fire. It is not the
earth from the beginning of creation, but the earth that was created and
made during the six days following the "beginning" of
