  9.  
  10. 2
  11. 00:01:07,427 --> 00:01:10,195
  12. 3,500 years ago,
  13.  
  14. 3
  15. 00:01:13,193 --> 00:01:17,359
  16. after the worldwide
  17. flood of Noah's time,
  18.  
  19. 4
  20. 00:01:17,361 --> 00:01:20,362
  21. before the birth of Christ,
  22.  
  23. 5
  24. 00:01:21,759 --> 00:01:26,561
  25. God inspired Moses to record
  26. history from the beginning.
  27.  
  28. 6
  29. 00:01:29,759 --> 00:01:34,358
  30. These writings became
  31. the first five books
  32.  
  33. 7
  34. 00:01:34,360 --> 00:01:39,361
  35. of the Old Testament beginning
  36. with Genesis, the first book,
  37.  
  38. 8
  39. 00:01:41,759 --> 00:01:46,727
  40. testifying of a genealogy
  41. of men, from Adam,
  42.  
  43. 9
  44. 00:01:48,327 --> 00:01:52,428
  45. the first man, to Abraham,
  46. with whom God established
  47.  
  48. 10
  49. 00:01:53,794 --> 00:01:57,660
  50. his covenant leading to God's
  51. ultimate plan of redemption,
  52.  
  53. 11
  54. 00:01:58,627 --> 00:02:01,227
  55. a new covenant, yet to come.
  56.  
  57. 12
  58. 00:02:03,161 --> 00:02:08,161
  59. It is the definitive book of
  60. our origins and our destiny,
  61.  
  62. 13
  63. 00:02:11,460 --> 00:02:15,327
  64. a destiny we cannot
  65. fully understand
  66.  
  67. 14
  68. 00:02:16,759 --> 00:02:20,160
  69. until we go back
  70. to the beginning.
  71.  
  72. 15
  73. 00:02:31,393 --> 00:02:34,559
  74. They hijack science, and
  75. they convince the whole world
  76.  
  77. 16
  78. 00:02:34,561 --> 00:02:37,761
  79. that science is only possible
  80. within an atheistic worldview.
  81.  
  82. 17
  83. 00:02:46,493 --> 00:02:49,359
  84. I have to ask the question.
  85. How can you not believe
  86.  
  87. 18
  88. 00:02:49,361 --> 00:02:52,194
  89. that somebody
  90. designed all of this?
  91.  
  92. 19
  93. 00:03:01,293 --> 00:03:04,625
  94. Obviously, the genius
  95. of God's creative hand
  96.  
  97. 20
  98. 00:03:04,627 --> 00:03:09,158
  99. screams of the existence
  100. of an intelligent designer.
  101.  
  102. 21
  103. 00:05:38,560 --> 00:05:42,625
  104. The Bible begins with a
  105. statement that is so simple
  106.  
  107. 22
  108. 00:05:42,627 --> 00:05:44,158
  109. a child can understand it,
  110.  
  111. 23
  112. 00:05:44,160 --> 00:05:46,691
  113. yet so inexhaustibly profound,
  114.  
  115. 24
  116. 00:05:46,693 --> 00:05:50,690
  117. "In the beginning, God created
  118. the heaven and the earth."
  119.  
  120. 25
  121. 00:05:50,692 --> 00:05:53,425
  122. You see, this argument
  123. over God's existence,
  124.  
  125. 26
  126. 00:05:53,427 --> 00:05:55,490
  127. or creation versus evolution,
  128.  
  129. 27
  130. 00:05:55,492 --> 00:05:57,690
  131. is not so much a
  132. religious argument,
  133.  
  134. 28
  135. 00:05:57,692 --> 00:06:00,159
  136. rather, it is an
  137. ontological argument,
  138.  
  139. 29
  140. 00:06:00,161 --> 00:06:05,092
  141. that is, an argument concerning
  142. the nature of reality.
  143.  
  144. 30
  145. 00:06:05,094 --> 00:06:06,825
  146. It's not science
  147. versus religion.
  148.  
  149. 31
  150. 00:06:06,827 --> 00:06:08,358
  151. It's a worldview clash.
  152.  
  153. 32
  154. 00:06:08,360 --> 00:06:10,358
  155. Two different views of origins
  156.  
  157. 33
  158. 00:06:10,360 --> 00:06:13,691
  159. resulting in two totally
  160. different worldviews that clash.
  161.  
  162. 34
  163. 00:06:13,693 --> 00:06:16,292
  164. People are battling over
  165. two different histories.
  166.  
  167. 35
  168. 00:06:16,294 --> 00:06:18,825
  169. You either trust God,
  170. or you trust man.
  171.  
  172. 36
  173. 00:06:18,827 --> 00:06:21,092
  174. It really becomes
  175. an issue of authority.
  176.  
  177. 37
  178. 00:06:21,094 --> 00:06:22,490
  179. Who is the authority?
  180.  
  181. 38
  182. 00:06:22,492 --> 00:06:25,259
  183. Is it God in his
  184. Word, or is it man?
  185.  
  186. 39
  187. 00:06:25,261 --> 00:06:27,824
  188. Really, we only have
  189. two possibilities.
  190.  
  191. 40
  192. 00:06:27,826 --> 00:06:32,158
  193. Either the universe, and
  194. we, came about through,
  195.  
  196. 41
  197. 00:06:32,160 --> 00:06:35,424
  198. a purely natural,
  199. purely physical process,
  200.  
  201. 42
  202. 00:06:35,426 --> 00:06:39,424
  203. we just happened,
  204. or somebody made us.
  205.  
  206. 43
  207. 00:06:39,426 --> 00:06:42,292
  208. I was really taught
  209. that there was a big bang,
  210.  
  211. 44
  212. 00:06:42,294 --> 00:06:44,691
  213. there were millions of
  214. years, man slowly evolved.
  215.  
  216. 45
  217. 00:06:44,693 --> 00:06:47,424
  218. Evolution, atheistic
  219. evolution, big bang,
  220.  
  221. 46
  222. 00:06:47,426 --> 00:06:48,625
  223. millions of years.
  224.  
  225. 47
  226. 00:06:48,627 --> 00:06:51,192
  227. If we simply happened,
  228.  
  229. 48
  230. 00:06:51,194 --> 00:06:53,691
  231. then there really is
  232. no right or wrong.
  233.  
  234. 49
  235. 00:06:53,693 --> 00:06:56,792
  236. We could really live our
  237. lives the way we wished to,
  238.  
  239. 50
  240. 00:06:56,794 --> 00:06:58,757
  241. and that's of huge consequence.
  242.  
  243. 51
  244. 00:06:58,759 --> 00:07:01,225
  245. Evolution has a lot of
  246. unintended consequences
  247.  
  248. 52
  249. 00:07:01,227 --> 00:07:02,757
  250. that I'm not sure everyone
  251. has thought about.
  252.  
  253. 53
  254. 00:07:02,759 --> 00:07:04,091
  255. They relate to ethics.
  256.  
  257. 54
  258. 00:07:04,093 --> 00:07:05,291
  259. They relate to whether
  260. or not the world
  261.  
  262. 55
  263. 00:07:05,293 --> 00:07:06,491
  264. is supposed to be good.
  265.  
  266. 56
  267. 00:07:06,493 --> 00:07:08,691
  268. When you find yourself
  269. struggling with evil,
  270.  
  271. 57
  272. 00:07:08,693 --> 00:07:10,324
  273. you ought to ask yourself.
  274.  
  275. 58
  276. 00:07:10,326 --> 00:07:11,558
  277. "Well, I thought the world
  278. was supposed to be this way?
  279.  
  280. 59
  281. 00:07:11,560 --> 00:07:14,059
  282. "If evolution is true,
  283. then get used to it."
  284.  
  285. 60
  286. 00:07:14,061 --> 00:07:16,457
  287. You see if evolution
  288. is true, who am I?
  289.  
  290. 61
  291. 00:07:16,459 --> 00:07:18,091
  292. You're nothing important.
  293.  
  294. 62
  295. 00:07:18,093 --> 00:07:19,425
  296. You're just a
  297. piece of protoplasm
  298.  
  299. 63
  300. 00:07:19,427 --> 00:07:21,558
  301. that washed up from
  302. the cosmic shores.
  303.  
  304. 64
  305. 00:07:21,560 --> 00:07:23,091
  306. Man's just an animal.
  307.  
  308. 65
  309. 00:07:23,093 --> 00:07:24,757
  310. We're Mother Nature's
  311. science project.
  312.  
  313. 66
  314. 00:07:24,759 --> 00:07:26,225
  315. Why am I here?
  316.  
  317. 67
  318. 00:07:26,227 --> 00:07:28,225
  319. If evolution is true,
  320.  
  321. 68
  322. 00:07:28,227 --> 00:07:30,691
  323. if nature is all there is,
  324. there's no real purpose.
  325.  
  326. 69
  327. 00:07:30,693 --> 00:07:32,424
  328. Might as well do
  329. whatever you feel like.
  330.  
  331. 70
  332. 00:07:32,426 --> 00:07:34,224
  333. If it feels good, do it!
  334.  
  335. 71
  336. 00:07:34,226 --> 00:07:36,224
  337. You have no meaning.
  338.  
  339. 72
  340. 00:07:36,226 --> 00:07:38,425
  341. There's no reason
  342. for you to exist.
  343.  
  344. 73
  345. 00:07:38,427 --> 00:07:40,091
  346. Where am I going when I die?
  347.  
  348. 74
  349. 00:07:40,093 --> 00:07:42,158
  350. You're gonna go
  351. back into the ground
  352.  
  353. 75
  354. 00:07:42,160 --> 00:07:43,159
  355. and that is gonna be it.
  356.  
  357. 76
  358. 00:07:43,161 --> 00:07:44,357
  359. The lights are turned out.
  360.  
  361. 77
  362. 00:07:44,359 --> 00:07:48,058
  363. You die and become
  364. part of nothingness.
  365.  
  366. 78
  367. 00:07:48,060 --> 00:07:50,425
  368. You're worthless.
  369.  
  370. 79
  371. 00:07:50,427 --> 00:07:52,558
  372. But if there is a God,
  373.  
  374. 80
  375. 00:07:52,560 --> 00:07:54,290
  376. in particular the
  377. God of the Bible,
  378.  
  379. 81
  380. 00:07:54,292 --> 00:07:58,425
  381. then the world or reality,
  382. is altogether different.
  383.  
  384. 82
  385. 00:07:58,427 --> 00:08:00,159
  386. I thought to
  387. believe in the Bible
  388.  
  389. 83
  390. 00:08:00,161 --> 00:08:01,557
  391. meant you had to reject science.
  392.  
  393. 84
  394. 00:08:01,559 --> 00:08:03,557
  395. I thought I had to
  396. take a mental lobotomy
  397.  
  398. 85
  399. 00:08:03,559 --> 00:08:05,425
  400. in order to start
  401. believing the Bible.
  402.  
  403. 86
  404. 00:08:05,427 --> 00:08:07,224
  405. We hear the mantra.
  406.  
  407. 87
  408. 00:08:07,226 --> 00:08:09,092
  409. "All the scientists
  410. believe in evolution."
  411.  
  412. 88
  413. 00:08:09,094 --> 00:08:11,357
  414. Some people today
  415. want to insist
  416.  
  417. 89
  418. 00:08:11,359 --> 00:08:13,825
  419. that you can't do science
  420. without believing in evolution.
  421.  
  422. 90
  423. 00:08:13,827 --> 00:08:16,491
  424. In other words, if
  425. you are a Creationist,
  426.  
  427. 91
  428. 00:08:16,493 --> 00:08:19,159
  429. you are not classed
  430. as a scientist.
  431.  
  432. 92
  433. 00:08:19,161 --> 00:08:22,490
  434. There are thousands of PhD
  435. scientists all over the world
  436.  
  437. 93
  438. 00:08:22,492 --> 00:08:24,490
  439. who don't accept evolution,
  440.  
  441. 94
  442. 00:08:24,492 --> 00:08:27,290
  443. and many of them don't
  444. accept the millions of years.
  445.  
  446. 95
  447. 00:08:27,292 --> 00:08:28,724
  448. I do have four degrees.
  449.  
  450. 96
  451. 00:08:28,726 --> 00:08:31,724
  452. Most evolutionists I've
  453. met have only three.
  454.  
  455. 97
  456. 00:08:31,726 --> 00:08:34,757
  457. There is a small movement in
  458. the evolutionist community
  459.  
  460. 98
  461. 00:08:34,759 --> 00:08:37,225
  462. to try to get the
  463. doctoral degrees rescinded
  464.  
  465. 99
  466. 00:08:37,227 --> 00:08:39,224
  467. from all professing
  468. creationists.
  469.  
  470. 100
  471. 00:08:39,226 --> 00:08:40,424
  472. That's never gonna happen,
  473.  
  474. 101
  475. 00:08:40,426 --> 00:08:42,091
  476. but the fact that
  477. someone is trying
  478.  
  479. 102
  480. 00:08:42,093 --> 00:08:44,525
  481. speaks of the nature
  482. of the debate.
  483.  
  484. 103
  485. 00:08:44,527 --> 00:08:49,159
  486. The secularists and the
  487. atheists took control of science.
  488.  
  489. 104
  490. 00:08:49,161 --> 00:08:51,291
  491. They took control of
  492. all the science journals
  493.  
  494. 105
  495. 00:08:51,293 --> 00:08:53,491
  496. and all the university
  497. science programs.
  498.  
  499. 106
  500. 00:08:53,493 --> 00:08:54,690
  501. They have taken
  502. over the museums.
  503.  
  504. 107
  505. 00:08:54,692 --> 00:08:56,324
  506. They have taken over
  507. the state schools.
  508.  
  509. 108
  510. 00:08:56,326 --> 00:08:57,724
  511. They have taken over
  512. the universities.
  513.  
  514. 109
  515. 00:08:57,726 --> 00:09:00,825
  516. The textbooks, the public
  517. schools, in every country.
  518.  
  519. 110
  520. 00:09:00,827 --> 00:09:02,557
  521. The secularists
  522. really have control
  523.  
  524. 111
  525. 00:09:02,559 --> 00:09:05,424
  526. of the educational system
  527. and they want their religion
  528.  
  529. 112
  530. 00:09:05,426 --> 00:09:07,624
  531. of secularism, of
  532. atheism, of naturalism
  533.  
  534. 113
  535. 00:09:07,626 --> 00:09:10,357
  536. forced upon the students.
  537.  
  538. 114
  539. 00:09:10,359 --> 00:09:12,124
  540. They use political pressure.
  541.  
  542. 115
  543. 00:09:12,126 --> 00:09:13,824
  544. They use scare tactics.
  545.  
  546. 116
  547. 00:09:13,826 --> 00:09:15,258
  548. They use the ACLU.
  549.  
  550. 117
  551. 00:09:15,260 --> 00:09:17,624
  552. They will intimidate
  553. school districts
  554.  
  555. 118
  556. 00:09:17,626 --> 00:09:19,691
  557. and take away their autonomy
  558.  
  559. 119
  560. 00:09:19,693 --> 00:09:21,825
  561. that is given to them
  562. by the constitution.
  563.  
  564. 120
  565. 00:09:21,827 --> 00:09:23,424
  566. And if that's what
  567. they have to do,
  568.  
  569. 121
  570. 00:09:23,426 --> 00:09:26,624
  571. if you need laws to protect
  572. your scientific theory
  573.  
  574. 122
  575. 00:09:26,626 --> 00:09:30,490
  576. from criticism, what does that
  577. tell you about your theory?
  578.  
  579. 123
  580. 00:09:30,492 --> 00:09:33,223
  581. In America, there is no
  582. separation of Church and State
  583.  
  584. 124
  585. 00:09:33,225 --> 00:09:36,458
  586. because the State is forcing
  587. a religion on generations
  588.  
  589. 125
  590. 00:09:36,460 --> 00:09:38,725
  591. of kids, and that is that
  592. everything can be explained
  593.  
  594. 126
  595. 00:09:38,727 --> 00:09:40,825
  596. by natural processes only.
  597.  
  598. 127
  599. 00:09:40,827 --> 00:09:42,558
  600. They eliminate the supernatural.
  601.  
  602. 128
  603. 00:09:42,560 --> 00:09:43,490
  604. That is a religion.
  605.  
  606. 129
  607. 00:09:43,492 --> 00:09:45,158
  608. It is a religion of atheism.
  609.  
  610. 130
  611. 00:09:45,160 --> 00:09:47,690
  612. They hijack science, and
  613. they convince the whole world
  614.  
  615. 131
  616. 00:09:47,692 --> 00:09:51,391
  617. that science is only possible
  618. within an atheistic worldview.
  619.  
  620. 132
  621. 00:09:51,393 --> 00:09:54,758
  622. Even though modern science
  623. was born in the womb
  624.  
  625. 133
  626. 00:09:54,760 --> 00:09:56,357
  627. of the Christian worldview.
  628.  
  629. 134
  630. 00:09:56,359 --> 00:09:58,191
  631. Do you know that science
  632. was pretty much invented
  633.  
  634. 135
  635. 00:09:58,193 --> 00:09:59,358
  636. by people of faith?
  637.  
  638. 136
  639. 00:09:59,360 --> 00:10:00,690
  640. Think of Isaac Newton.
  641.  
  642. 137
  643. 00:10:00,692 --> 00:10:02,758
  644. I think he needs
  645. a better PR agent.
  646.  
  647. 138
  648. 00:10:02,760 --> 00:10:04,091
  649. All we know is that
  650. he had an apple fall
  651.  
  652. 139
  653. 00:10:04,093 --> 00:10:05,324
  654. on his head and
  655. discovered gravity.
  656.  
  657. 140
  658. 00:10:05,326 --> 00:10:06,491
  659. He was always trying to
  660. do mathematical formulas
  661.  
  662. 141
  663. 00:10:06,493 --> 00:10:08,358
  664. and show that the idea
  665. of math and reason
  666.  
  667. 142
  668. 00:10:08,360 --> 00:10:10,625
  669. came directly from a creator
  670. who invented the world.
  671.  
  672. 143
  673. 00:10:10,627 --> 00:10:13,058
  674. Isaac Newton, Boyle,
  675. Pasteur, Faraday.
  676.  
  677. 144
  678. 00:10:13,060 --> 00:10:15,357
  679. These guys were
  680. Bible-believing Christians.
  681.  
  682. 145
  683. 00:10:15,359 --> 00:10:17,224
  684. Johannes Kepler, who
  685. pretty much invented
  686.  
  687. 146
  688. 00:10:17,226 --> 00:10:19,091
  689. modern astronomy, he
  690. didn't see any problem
  691.  
  692. 147
  693. 00:10:19,093 --> 00:10:20,690
  694. between science
  695. and the scriptures.
  696.  
  697. 148
  698. 00:10:20,692 --> 00:10:23,224
  699. Most of the early scientists
  700. were not materialists.
  701.  
  702. 149
  703. 00:10:23,226 --> 00:10:24,557
  704. Most of the early scientists
  705.  
  706. 150
  707. 00:10:24,559 --> 00:10:26,558
  708. were theists who believed
  709. that there was a God
  710.  
  711. 151
  712. 00:10:26,560 --> 00:10:28,224
  713. who had created everything
  714.  
  715. 152
  716. 00:10:28,226 --> 00:10:31,290
  717. and the reason that we could
  718. understand the created world
  719.  
  720. 153
  721. 00:10:31,292 --> 00:10:33,490
  722. was that there was a
  723. mind, an intelligence,
  724.  
  725. 154
  726. 00:10:33,492 --> 00:10:35,223
  727. behind the material world.
  728.  
  729. 155
  730. 00:10:35,225 --> 00:10:38,224
  731. We need to acknowledge
  732. that there is a creator God
  733.  
  734. 156
  735. 00:10:38,226 --> 00:10:40,059
  736. who put in place
  737. an orderly universe
  738.  
  739. 157
  740. 00:10:40,061 --> 00:10:42,324
  741. to allow us to
  742. understand science.
  743.  
  744. 158
  745. 00:10:42,326 --> 00:10:44,092
  746. What makes more sense.
  747.  
  748. 159
  749. 00:10:44,094 --> 00:10:46,691
  750. A rational God who
  751. created a rational world
  752.  
  753. 160
  754. 00:10:46,693 --> 00:10:49,757
  755. that can be studied
  756. rationally, or an irrational,
  757.  
  758. 161
  759. 00:10:49,759 --> 00:10:53,157
  760. meaningless process
  761. created a rational world
  762.  
  763. 162
  764. 00:10:53,159 --> 00:10:55,158
  765. that can be studied rationally?
  766.  
  767. 163
  768. 00:10:55,160 --> 00:10:56,392
  769. It doesn't even make sense.
  770.  
  771. 164
  772. 00:10:56,394 --> 00:10:59,357
  773. In a secularized world where
  774. there is no right and wrong,
  775.  
  776. 165
  777. 00:10:59,359 --> 00:11:01,358
  778. everything just exploded
  779. and this is what we have?
  780.  
  781. 166
  782. 00:11:01,360 --> 00:11:03,190
  783. Why would we have all
  784. these beautiful laws
  785.  
  786. 167
  787. 00:11:03,192 --> 00:11:05,290
  788. like F=ma or E=mc squared?
  789.  
  790. 168
  791. 00:11:05,292 --> 00:11:08,290
  792. In a secular worldview
  793. with things like big bang,
  794.  
  795. 169
  796. 00:11:08,292 --> 00:11:09,757
  797. evolution, millions of
  798. years, origin of life,
  799.  
  800. 170
  801. 00:11:09,759 --> 00:11:11,291
  802. those are not scientific.
  803.  
  804. 171
  805. 00:11:11,293 --> 00:11:13,091
  806. A lot of people have
  807. been duped into believing
  808.  
  809. 172
  810. 00:11:13,093 --> 00:11:14,491
  811. that they are, but they're not.
  812.  
  813. 173
  814. 00:11:14,493 --> 00:11:17,223
  815. For example, is big bang
  816. observable and repeatable?
  817.  
  818. 174
  819. 00:11:17,225 --> 00:11:18,558
  820. No.
  821.  
  822. 175
  823. 00:11:18,560 --> 00:11:19,558
  824. Is millions of years
  825. observable and repeatable?
  826.  
  827. 176
  828. 00:11:19,560 --> 00:11:20,424
  829. No.
  830.  
  831. 177
  832. 00:11:20,426 --> 00:11:21,624
  833. Origin of life.
  834.  
  835. 178
  836. 00:11:21,626 --> 00:11:23,091
  837. Has anybody ever made
  838. life from non-life?
  839.  
  840. 179
  841. 00:11:23,093 --> 00:11:24,258
  842. No.
  843.  
  844. 180
  845. 00:11:24,260 --> 00:11:26,090
  846. Evolution is not
  847. scientific fact.
  848.  
  849. 181
  850. 00:11:26,092 --> 00:11:28,424
  851. The millions of years
  852. is not scientific fact.
  853.  
  854. 182
  855. 00:11:28,426 --> 00:11:31,757
  856. Evolution and millions of
  857. years is the greatest myth
  858.  
  859. 183
  860. 00:11:31,759 --> 00:11:34,158
  861. ever forced on the minds of men.
  862.  
  863. 184
  864. 00:11:34,160 --> 00:11:36,624
  865. The reason that everybody
  866. believes it is because
  867.  
  868. 185
  869. 00:11:36,626 --> 00:11:38,357
  870. they have been brainwashed.
  871.  
  872. 186
  873. 00:11:38,359 --> 00:11:40,224
  874. Are we gonna believe
  875. man, who wasn't there
  876.  
  877. 187
  878. 00:11:40,226 --> 00:11:42,424
  879. during the supposed millions
  880. and millions of years
  881.  
  882. 188
  883. 00:11:42,426 --> 00:11:44,323
  884. of Earth's history,
  885. and who really just has
  886.  
  887. 189
  888. 00:11:44,325 --> 00:11:46,724
  889. to make up stories about
  890. what happened in the past?
  891.  
  892. 190
  893. 00:11:46,726 --> 00:11:49,158
  894. When you start buying into
  895. evolution, millions of years,
  896.  
  897. 191
  898. 00:11:49,160 --> 00:11:51,458
  899. and some of those ideas, as
  900. soon as you've done that,
  901.  
  902. 192
  903. 00:11:51,460 --> 00:11:52,690
  904. you've opened the door to say,
  905.  
  906. 193
  907. 00:11:52,692 --> 00:11:54,658
  908. "You don't have to trust
  909. the Bible completely."
  910.  
  911. 194
  912. 00:11:54,660 --> 00:11:58,091
  913. If you can't believe
  914. Genesis one through 12,
  915.  
  916. 195
  917. 00:11:58,093 --> 00:12:00,757
  918. why should you believe
  919. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John?
  920.  
  921. 196
  922. 00:12:00,759 --> 00:12:03,091
  923. That is a logical incoherence.
  924.  
  925. 197
  926. 00:12:03,093 --> 00:12:06,657
  927. Now you're picking and choosing
  928. which scriptures to believe.
  929.  
  930. 198
  931. 00:12:06,659 --> 00:12:10,324
  932. Hypocrisy in the Church
  933. is the greatest deterrent
  934.  
  935. 199
  936. 00:12:10,326 --> 00:12:12,824
  937. to turning people to
  938. Christ and to confidence
  939.  
  940. 200
  941. 00:12:12,826 --> 00:12:16,757
  942. in the written word, from
  943. Genesis to Revelation.
  944.  
  945. 201
  946. 00:12:16,759 --> 00:12:19,490
  947. Genesis is so important
  948. because it's the foundation
  949.  
  950. 202
  951. 00:12:19,492 --> 00:12:24,224
  952. of who God is, who we are,
  953. why is the world broken?
  954.  
  955. 203
  956. 00:12:24,226 --> 00:12:25,690
  957. Why do bad things
  958. happen to good people?
  959.  
  960. 204
  961. 00:12:25,692 --> 00:12:27,691
  962. And why do good things
  963. sometimes happen to bad people?
  964.  
  965. 205
  966. 00:12:27,693 --> 00:12:29,223
  967. And does anyone have a fix?
  968.  
  969. 206
  970. 00:12:29,225 --> 00:12:31,357
  971. All this gets related
  972. to us in Genesis.
  973.  
  974. 207
  975. 00:12:31,359 --> 00:12:34,558
  976. Genesis is giving us the
  977. true history of the world.
  978.  
  979. 208
  980. 00:12:34,560 --> 00:12:36,124
  981. The scientific evidence
  982.  
  983. 209
  984. 00:12:36,126 --> 00:12:38,291
  985. does not support evolution
  986. and millions of years.
  987.  
  988. 210
  989. 00:12:38,293 --> 00:12:40,290
  990. It confirms what Genesis says,

  1207.  
  1208. 257
  1209. 00:19:59,092 --> 00:20:01,623
  1210. we have to ask, what
  1211. kind of text is this?
  1212.  
  1213. 258
  1214. 00:20:01,625 --> 00:20:03,425
  1215. What type of literature is this?
  1216.  
  1217. 259
  1218. 00:20:03,427 --> 00:20:05,557
  1219. Is Genesis supposed
  1220. to be poetry?
  1221.  
  1222. 260
  1223. 00:20:05,559 --> 00:20:08,624
  1224. Is it supposed to
  1225. be an allegory?
  1226.  
  1227. 261
  1228. 00:20:08,626 --> 00:20:10,689
  1229. Don't forget that
  1230. Genesis is written
  1231.  
  1232. 262
  1233. 00:20:10,691 --> 00:20:15,491
  1234. in historical narrative Hebrew,
  1235. not in lyrical poetic form.
  1236.  
  1237. 263
  1238. 00:20:15,493 --> 00:20:18,490
  1239. It is written in
  1240. historical style,
  1241.  
  1242. 264
  1243. 00:20:18,492 --> 00:20:19,790
  1244. and it's meant to be taken...
  1245.  
  1246. 265
  1247. 00:20:19,792 --> 00:20:22,390
  1248. As straightforward,
  1249. literal history.
  1250.  
  1251. 266
  1252. 00:20:22,392 --> 00:20:26,157
  1253. The Bible clearly says that God
  1254. created in six literal days,
  1255.  
  1256. 267
  1257. 00:20:26,159 --> 00:20:29,091
  1258. just like our days,
  1259. about 6000 years ago.
  1260.  
  1261. 268
  1262. 00:20:29,093 --> 00:20:32,491
  1263. Jesus Christ himself
  1264. referred to Genesis
  1265.  
  1266. 269
  1267. 00:20:32,493 --> 00:20:33,823
  1268. on multiple occasions,
  1269.  
  1270. 270
  1271. 00:20:33,825 --> 00:20:36,624
  1272. each time referring to
  1273. Genesis as real history.
  1274.  
  1275. 271
  1276. 00:20:36,626 --> 00:20:39,556
  1277. There are some people who
  1278. approach the biblical text today
  1279.  
  1280. 272
  1281. 00:20:39,558 --> 00:20:41,091
  1282. and they view it
  1283. through the lens
  1284.  
  1285. 273
  1286. 00:20:41,093 --> 00:20:43,224
  1287. of modern scientific
  1288. interpretations.
  1289.  
  1290. 274
  1291. 00:20:43,226 --> 00:20:46,157
  1292. For example, they try to
  1293. insert millions of years
  1294.  
  1295. 275
  1296. 00:20:46,159 --> 00:20:48,223
  1297. in between the first
  1298. two verses of scripture.
  1299.  
  1300. 276
  1301. 00:20:48,225 --> 00:20:51,689
  1302. Now in order to add millions
  1303. of years in between verse one
  1304.  
  1305. 277
  1306. 00:20:51,691 --> 00:20:54,223
  1307. and verse two, you have
  1308. to deal with the grammar
  1309.  
  1310. 278
  1311. 00:20:54,225 --> 00:20:55,690
  1312. of the text.
  1313.  
  1314. 279
  1315. 00:20:55,692 --> 00:20:58,158
  1316. The Hebrew is very clear
  1317. in the syntax and grammar.
  1318.  
  1319. 280
  1320. 00:20:58,160 --> 00:21:00,123
  1321. Now, people can say
  1322. they don't believe it,
  1323.  
  1324. 281
  1325. 00:21:00,125 --> 00:21:03,157
  1326. but no one can say that
  1327. the Hebrew word yom
  1328.  
  1329. 282
  1330. 00:21:03,159 --> 00:21:07,590
  1331. doesn't mean a 24-hour day
  1332. right there where it says a day,
  1333.  
  1334. 283
  1335. 00:21:07,592 --> 00:21:11,190
  1336. and then it says
  1337. day one, day two,
  1338.  
  1339. 284
  1340. 00:21:11,192 --> 00:21:13,824
  1341. and at the end, the fifth
  1342. day and the sixth day.
  1343.  
  1344. 285
  1345. 00:21:13,826 --> 00:21:15,723
  1346. Each of those days
  1347. was an ordinary,
  1348.  
  1349. 286
  1350. 00:21:15,725 --> 00:21:18,224
  1351. approximately 24-hour day.
  1352.  
  1353. 287
  1354. 00:21:18,226 --> 00:21:19,623
  1355. In fact, that is
  1356. why in Exodus 20:11
  1357.  
  1358. 288
  1359. 00:21:19,625 --> 00:21:21,689
  1360. God said he made
  1361. everything in six days
  1362.  
  1363. 289
  1364. 00:21:21,691 --> 00:21:24,490
  1365. and rested for one, as a
  1366. basis for the seven-day week.
  1367.  
  1368. 290
  1369. 00:21:24,492 --> 00:21:26,258
  1370. You see it actually
  1371. comes from the Bible.
  1372.  
  1373. 291
  1374. 00:21:26,260 --> 00:21:27,489
  1375. It doesn't come from
  1376. any other worldview.
  1377.  
  1378. 292
  1379. 00:21:27,491 --> 00:21:28,657
  1380. It doesn't come from
  1381. any other religion.
  1382.  
  1383. 293
  1384. 00:21:28,659 --> 00:21:30,490
  1385. It doesn't come from
  1386. astronomical science.
  1387.  
  1388. 294
  1389. 00:21:30,492 --> 00:21:33,090
  1390. We have this seven-day
  1391. cycle we call the week,
  1392.  
  1393. 295
  1394. 00:21:33,092 --> 00:21:36,690
  1395. and there is no
  1396. astronomical basis for this.
  1397.  
  1398. 296
  1399. 00:21:36,692 --> 00:21:40,323
  1400. It's something that is fairly
  1401. universal among cultures,
  1402.  
  1403. 297
  1404. 00:21:40,325 --> 00:21:43,690
  1405. but we find it's given to
  1406. us in the first few chapters
  1407.  
  1408. 298
  1409. 00:21:43,692 --> 00:21:45,090
  1410. of Genesis.
  1411.  
  1412. 299
  1413. 00:21:45,092 --> 00:21:46,091
  1414. You have the six
  1415. days of Creation.
  1416.  
  1417. 300
  1418. 00:21:46,093 --> 00:21:47,724
  1419. On the seventh day, God rested.
  1420.  
  1421. 301
  1422. 00:21:47,726 --> 00:21:49,291
  1423. God made everything
  1424. in six days.
  1425.  
  1426. 302
  1427. 00:21:49,293 --> 00:21:50,490
  1428. He rested for one.
  1429.  
  1430. 303
  1431. 00:21:50,492 --> 00:21:51,456
  1432. That is why we have
  1433. a seven-day week,
  1434.  
  1435. 304
  1436. 00:21:51,458 --> 00:21:52,624
  1437. that's where it comes from.
  1438.  
  1439. 305
  1440. 00:21:52,626 --> 00:21:54,357
  1441. We don't have seven
  1442. millions of years weeks,
  1443.  
  1444. 306
  1445. 00:21:54,359 --> 00:21:55,757
  1446. or something like that!
  1447.  
  1448. 307
  1449. 00:21:55,759 --> 00:21:59,425
  1450. There is no way to
  1451. harmonize evolution
  1452.  
  1453. 308
  1454. 00:21:59,427 --> 00:22:01,757
  1455. and millions of
  1456. years with Genesis 1.
  1457.  
  1458. 309
  1459. 00:22:01,759 --> 00:22:04,423
  1460. If you try to make
  1461. that order of the events
  1462.  
  1463. 310
  1464. 00:22:04,425 --> 00:22:07,358
  1465. of the Creation Week match
  1466. with evolutionary principles,
  1467.  
  1468. 311
  1469. 00:22:07,360 --> 00:22:08,523
  1470. it can't.
  1471.  
  1472. 312
  1473. 00:22:08,525 --> 00:22:10,157
  1474. If the days were really
  1475. bazillions of years,
  1476.  
  1477. 313
  1478. 00:22:10,159 --> 00:22:14,157
  1479. how could the plants go for
  1480. a million years with no sun?
  1481.  
  1482. 314
  1483. 00:22:14,159 --> 00:22:17,457
  1484. They might have lasted
  1485. overnight, like the Bible says,
  1486.  
  1487. 315
  1488. 00:22:17,459 --> 00:22:18,689
  1489. but not for a million years!
  1490.  
  1491. 316
  1492. 00:22:18,691 --> 00:22:20,557
  1493. The plants could
  1494. survive just fine
  1495.  
  1496. 317
  1497. 00:22:20,559 --> 00:22:22,557
  1498. for twelve hours
  1499. without sunlight.
  1500.  
  1501. 318
  1502. 00:22:22,559 --> 00:22:24,489
  1503. If Genesis 1 was
  1504. just written by Moses
  1505.  
  1506. 319
  1507. 00:22:24,491 --> 00:22:27,791
  1508. out of his own imagination,
  1509. he would never think
  1510.  
  1511. 320
  1512. 00:22:27,793 --> 00:22:31,490
  1513. to put things in the
  1514. order that they are in,
  1515.  
  1516. 321
  1517. 00:22:31,492 --> 00:22:34,258
  1518. completely contradictory
  1519. to the order
  1520.  
  1521. 322
  1522. 00:22:34,260 --> 00:22:36,291
  1523. in which the evolutionists
  1524. say things happened.
  1525.  
  1526. 323
  1527. 00:22:36,293 --> 00:22:38,823
  1528. They are in that order
  1529. because that's the order
  1530.  
  1531. 324
  1532. 00:22:38,825 --> 00:22:40,690
  1533. in which God actually created,
  1534.  
  1535. 325
  1536. 00:22:40,692 --> 00:22:43,357
  1537. knowing that people
  1538. would come along
  1539.  
  1540. 326
  1541. 00:22:43,359 --> 00:22:45,291
  1542. and devise their
  1543. own creation myths
  1544.  
  1545. 327
  1546. 00:22:45,293 --> 00:22:48,090
  1547. and that one day there
  1548. would be evolutionists
  1549.  
  1550. 328
  1551. 00:22:48,092 --> 00:22:50,159
  1552. with their creation myth.
  1553.  
  1554. 329
  1555. 00:23:06,125 --> 00:23:08,490
  1556. In 1859,
  1557. Charles Darwin published
  1558.  
  1559. 330
  1560. 00:23:08,492 --> 00:23:11,624
  1561. On the Origin of Species by
  1562. Means of Natural Selection
  1563.  
  1564. 331
  1565. 00:23:11,626 --> 00:23:14,357
  1566. or the Preservation
  1567. of Favoured Races
  1568.  
  1569. 332
  1570. 00:23:14,359 --> 00:23:16,424
  1571. in the Struggle for Life,
  1572.  
  1573. 333
  1574. 00:23:16,426 --> 00:23:19,157
  1575. a book that proposed
  1576. a new theory
  1577.  
  1578. 334
  1579. 00:23:19,159 --> 00:23:22,423
  1580. on how life came to
  1581. be on planet Earth.
  1582.  
  1583. 335
  1584. 00:23:22,425 --> 00:23:25,091
  1585. This theory would
  1586. contradict the Bible,
  1587.  
  1588. 336
  1589. 00:23:25,093 --> 00:23:28,058
  1590. which had been the
  1591. predominant, trusted source
  1592.  
  1593. 337
  1594. 00:23:28,060 --> 00:23:30,757
  1595. of ancient history in the
  1596. West up until that time.
  1597.  
  1598. 338
  1599. 00:23:30,759 --> 00:23:34,291
  1600. Darwin was strongly
  1601. influenced by Charles Lyell's
  1602.  
  1603. 339
  1604. 00:23:34,293 --> 00:23:35,689
  1605. The Principles of Geology.
  1606.  
  1607. 340
  1608. 00:23:35,691 --> 00:23:38,690
  1609. Lyell, also
  1610. influenced by others,
  1611.  
  1612. 341
  1613. 00:23:38,692 --> 00:23:40,489
  1614. reinterpreted geologic history
  1615.  
  1616. 342
  1617. 00:23:40,491 --> 00:23:44,158
  1618. through gradual processes
  1619. over millions of years,
  1620.  
  1621. 343
  1622. 00:23:44,160 --> 00:23:47,090
  1623. a concept known as
  1624. uniformitarianism.
  1625.  
  1626. 344
  1627. 00:23:47,092 --> 00:23:50,390
  1628. This view was contrary
  1629. to catastrophism,
  1630.  
  1631. 345
  1632. 00:23:50,392 --> 00:23:53,823
  1633. which teaches that
  1634. Noah's flood can explain
  1635.  
  1636. 346
  1637. 00:23:53,825 --> 00:23:56,823
  1638. much of what we find
  1639. in the geologic record.
  1640.  
  1641. 347
  1642. 00:23:56,825 --> 00:23:59,356
  1643. Lyell's motivation was to quote,
  1644.  
  1645. 348
  1646. 00:23:59,358 --> 00:24:02,423
  1647. "free the science from
  1648. Moses," end quote.
  1649.  
  1650. 349
  1651. 00:24:02,425 --> 00:24:05,756
  1652. Their ideas would soon
  1653. transform the culture
  1654.  
  1655. 350
  1656. 00:24:05,758 --> 00:24:09,356
  1657. from one that largely trusted
  1658. in the biblical account
  1659.  
  1660. 351
  1661. 00:24:09,358 --> 00:24:12,556
  1662. of history and its
  1663. implications for cosmology,
  1664.  
  1665. 352
  1666. 00:24:12,558 --> 00:24:15,689
  1667. geology, and biology
  1668. to one that searched
  1669.  
  1670. 353
  1671. 00:24:15,691 --> 00:24:18,790
  1672. for alternative
  1673. explanations for everything.
  1674.  
  1675. 354
  1676. 00:24:18,792 --> 00:24:21,158
  1677. Did man evolve from animals?
  1678.  
  1679. 355
  1680. 00:24:21,160 --> 00:24:25,157
  1681. Did the universe form itself
  1682. over billions of years?
  1683.  
  1684. 356
  1685. 00:24:25,159 --> 00:24:28,356
  1686. Did dinosaurs go extinct
  1687. millions of years
  1688.  
  1689. 357
  1690. 00:24:28,358 --> 00:24:30,623
  1691. before man was on the Earth?
  1692.  
  1693. 358
  1694. 00:24:30,625 --> 00:24:33,424
  1695. Was there really
  1696. a worldwide flood?
  1697.  
  1698. 359
  1699. 00:24:33,426 --> 00:24:36,191
  1700. These questions
  1701. would soon lead many
  1702.  
  1703. 360
  1704. 00:24:36,193 --> 00:24:38,757
  1705. to either make compromises
  1706. with the Bible,
  1707.  
  1708. 361
  1709. 00:24:38,759 --> 00:24:41,759
  1710. or deny it altogether.
  1711.  
  1712. 362
  1713. 00:24:44,391 --> 00:24:46,090
  1714. I've had people say, "Well
  1715. where did God come from?
  1716.  
  1717. 363
  1718. 00:24:46,092 --> 00:24:47,356
  1719. "Who created God?"
  1720.  
  1721. 364
  1722. 00:24:47,358 --> 00:24:49,091
  1723. On what page of
  1724. Shakespeare's book Hamlet
  1725.  
  1726. 365
  1727. 00:24:49,093 --> 00:24:50,489
  1728. do you find Shakespeare?
  1729.  
  1730. 366
  1731. 00:24:50,491 --> 00:24:52,623
  1732. Shakespeare is not
  1733. confined to his book.
  1734.  
  1735. 367
  1736. 00:24:52,625 --> 00:24:54,357
  1737. He's not in it,
  1738. he wrote the book.
  1739.  
  1740. 368
  1741. 00:24:54,359 --> 00:24:55,490
  1742. He's not bound by his book,
  1743.  
  1744. 369
  1745. 00:24:55,492 --> 00:24:57,423
  1746. and God is not bound
  1747. by his creation.
  1748.  
  1749. 370
  1750. 00:24:57,425 --> 00:24:59,756
  1751. When you ask that question,
  1752. "Where did God come from?
  1753.  
  1754. 371
  1755. 00:24:59,758 --> 00:25:01,158
  1756. or "Who created God,"
  1757.  
  1758. 372
  1759. 00:25:01,160 --> 00:25:03,058
  1760. You are assuming
  1761. that time is absolute
  1762.  
  1763. 373
  1764. 00:25:03,060 --> 00:25:05,090
  1765. and God showed up
  1766. on that timeline.
  1767.  
  1768. 374
  1769. 00:25:05,092 --> 00:25:06,289
  1770. That is not the
  1771. God of the Bible.
  1772.  
  1773. 375
  1774. 00:25:06,291 --> 00:25:07,590
  1775. The God of the Bible
  1776. is beyond all that.
  1777.  
  1778. 376
  1779. 00:25:07,592 --> 00:25:09,091
  1780. God started time.
  1781.  
  1782. 377
  1783. 00:25:09,093 --> 00:25:09,756
  1784. He wasn't created.
  1785.  
  1786. 378
  1787. 00:25:09,758 --> 00:25:11,357
  1788. He is not bound by time.
  1789.  
  1790. 379
  1791. 00:25:11,359 --> 00:25:13,157
  1792. God is that absolute!
  1793.  
  1794. 380
  1795. 00:25:13,159 --> 00:25:14,557
  1796. Everyone knows,
  1797.  
  1798. 381
  1799. 00:25:14,559 --> 00:25:17,356
  1800. "In the beginning God created
  1801. the heaven and the earth."
  1802.  
  1803. 382
  1804. 00:25:17,358 --> 00:25:18,356
  1805. Heaven is space.
  1806.  
  1807. 383
  1808. 00:25:18,358 --> 00:25:19,556
  1809. The earth is matter.
  1810.  
  1811. 384
  1812. 00:25:19,558 --> 00:25:22,090
  1813. And then he said,
  1814. "Let there be light."
  1815.  
  1816. 385
  1817. 00:25:22,092 --> 00:25:24,289
  1818. Most people know that
  1819. verse by heart too.
  1820.  
  1821. 386
  1822. 00:25:24,291 --> 00:25:25,824
  1823. That's energy.
  1824.  
  1825. 387
  1826. 00:25:25,826 --> 00:25:28,423
  1827. On the first day of the universe,
  1828. God creates space, time,
  1829.  
  1830. 388
  1831. 00:25:28,425 --> 00:25:32,290
  1832. matter, and energy, all the
  1833. components of the universe.
  1834.  
  1835. 389
  1836. 00:25:32,292 --> 00:25:35,690
  1837. And the only actual
  1838. matter in the universe
  1839.  
  1840. 390
  1841. 00:25:35,692 --> 00:25:39,424
  1842. is the earth at the time,
  1843. standing in and out of the water.
  1844.  
  1845. 391
  1846. 00:25:39,426 --> 00:25:42,290
  1847. Perhaps it was water that
  1848. the earth was made from
  1849.  
  1850. 392
  1851. 00:25:42,292 --> 00:25:44,490
  1852. and water was actually the
  1853. first substance that God
  1854.  
  1855. 393
  1856. 00:25:44,492 --> 00:25:45,624
  1857. actually made.
  1858.  
  1859. 394
  1860. 00:25:45,626 --> 00:25:48,091
  1861. And so, we have
  1862. matter, space, time,
  1863.  
  1864. 395
  1865. 00:25:48,093 --> 00:25:51,157
  1866. and energy being created on
  1867. the first day of the universe.
  1868.  
  1869. 396
  1870. 00:25:51,159 --> 00:25:54,690
  1871. The second day is when
  1872. God actually separates
  1873.  
  1874. 397
  1875. 00:25:54,692 --> 00:25:56,623
  1876. the waters above from
  1877. the waters below,
  1878.  
  1879. 398
  1880. 00:25:56,625 --> 00:25:58,489
  1881. and then the expanse is there.
  1882.  
  1883. 399
  1884. 00:25:58,491 --> 00:26:02,157
  1885. The third day, God then
  1886. brings forth the dry land.
  1887.  
  1888. 400
  1889. 00:26:02,159 --> 00:26:04,423
  1890. He raises up the land surface.
  1891.  
  1892. 401
  1893. 00:26:04,425 --> 00:26:06,457
  1894. So now you have the
  1895. first continent,
  1896.  
  1897. 402
  1898. 00:26:06,459 --> 00:26:07,756
  1899. probably only one continent
  1900.  
  1901. 403
  1902. 00:26:07,758 --> 00:26:09,322
  1903. because it says He gathered
  1904. the waters together.
  1905.  
  1906. 404
  1907. 00:26:09,324 --> 00:26:12,490
  1908. To one place, which suggests
  1909. that in the early Earth
  1910.  
  1911. 405
  1912. 00:26:12,492 --> 00:26:14,090
  1913. there was one land mass.
  1914.  
  1915. 406
  1916. 00:26:14,092 --> 00:26:16,158
  1917. Just one continent,
  1918. split up, we believe,
  1919.  
  1920. 407
  1921. 00:26:16,160 --> 00:26:18,223
  1922. during the flood later on.
  1923.  
  1924. 408
  1925. 00:26:18,225 --> 00:26:20,456
  1926. It
  1927. wasn't until the 1960s
  1928.  
  1929. 409
  1930. 00:26:20,458 --> 00:26:23,557
  1931. that geologists began to widely
  1932. accept continental drift,
  1933.  
  1934. 410
  1935. 00:26:23,559 --> 00:26:28,560
  1936. a supposedly new idea that
  1937. proposed that the continents
  1938.  
  1939. 411
  1940. 00:26:29,691 --> 00:26:31,490
  1941. of Earth had broken up
  1942. at sometime in the past
  1943.  
  1944. 412
  1945. 00:26:31,492 --> 00:26:33,524
  1946. and had moved apart.
  1947.  
  1948. 413
  1949. 00:26:33,526 --> 00:26:37,357
  1950. You've probably heard the
  1951. name Rodinia or Pangaea,
  1952.  
  1953. 414
  1954. 00:26:37,359 --> 00:26:42,360
  1955. supercontinents in which all
  1956. the continents as we know them
  1957.  
  1958. 415
  1959. 00:26:43,224 --> 00:26:44,390
  1960. were once connected together.
  1961.  
  1962. 416
  1963. 00:26:44,392 --> 00:26:47,623
  1964. This is a concept that the
  1965. Bible already revealed thousands
  1966.  
  1967. 417
  1968. 00:26:47,625 --> 00:26:49,223
  1969. of years earlier.
  1970.  
  1971. 418
  1972. 00:26:49,225 --> 00:26:52,156
  1973. In 1858, Antonio
  1974. Snider-Pellegrini
  1975.  
  1976. 419
  1977. 00:26:52,158 --> 00:26:55,623
  1978. proposed that the continents
  1979. had moved apart rapidly
  1980.  
  1981. 420
  1982. 00:26:55,625 --> 00:26:59,357
  1983. during Noah's flood, in
  1984. a catastrophic process.
  1985.  
  1986. 421
  1987. 00:26:59,359 --> 00:27:04,091
  1988. Genesis 1:9 states that
  1989. God gathered together
  1990.  
  1991. 422
  1992. 00:27:04,093 --> 00:27:09,094
  1993. the waters into one place,
  1994. and made the dry land appear.
  1995.  
  1996. 423
  1997. 00:27:10,425 --> 00:27:12,690
  1998. What the Bible had stated
  1999. all along, that the lands
  2000.  
  2001. 424
  2002. 00:27:12,692 --> 00:27:15,556
  2003. were once connected
  2004. and then split apart,
  2005.  
  2006. 425
  2007. 00:27:15,558 --> 00:27:19,493
  2008. geologists started teaching
  2009. thousands of years later.
  2010.  
  2011. 426
  2012. 00:27:20,725 --> 00:27:23,157
  2013. Many people's
  2014. understanding of the flood
  2015.  
  2016. 427
  2017. 00:27:23,159 --> 00:27:27,090
  2018. is the understanding they
  2019. acquired when they were
  2020.  
  2021. 428
  2022. 00:27:27,092 --> 00:27:28,424
  2023. about four years old.
  2024.  
  2025. 429
  2026. 00:27:28,426 --> 00:27:31,156
  2027. The flood was an
  2028. incredible catastrophe
  2029.  
  2030. 430
  2031. 00:27:31,158 --> 00:27:35,389
  2032. almost beyond what the
  2033. human mind can comprehend.
  2034.  
  2035. 431
  2036. 00:27:35,391 --> 00:27:40,089
  2037. This is a catastrophic event
  2038. of unimaginable proportions.
  2039.  
  2040. 432
  2041. 00:27:40,091 --> 00:27:43,122
  2042. Sedimentation on a global
  2043. cataclysmic, catastrophic scale,
  2044.  
  2045. 433
  2046. 00:27:43,124 --> 00:27:45,689
  2047. burying billions of
  2048. creatures suddenly
  2049.  
  2050. 434
  2051. 00:27:45,691 --> 00:27:47,456
  2052. in unimaginable
  2053. amounts of sediment.
  2054.  
  2055. 435
  2056. 00:27:47,458 --> 00:27:49,089
  2057. Look at all the fossils.
  2058.  
  2059. 436
  2060. 00:27:49,091 --> 00:27:51,556
  2061. It's almost like the surface
  2062. of the Earth screams at us,
  2063.  
  2064. 437
  2065. 00:27:51,558 --> 00:27:53,823
  2066. "Hey, there was a
  2067. catastrophic event!"
  2068.  
  2069. 438
  2070. 00:27:53,825 --> 00:27:55,357
  2071. If something
  2072. like that happened,
  2073.  
  2074. 439
  2075. 00:27:55,359 --> 00:27:58,490
  2076. what sort of evidence should
  2077. that have left behind?
  2078.  
  2079. 440
  2080. 00:27:58,492 --> 00:27:59,690
  2081. Billions of dead things,
  2082.  
  2083. 441
  2084. 00:27:59,692 --> 00:28:01,289
  2085. buried in rock layers
  2086. laid down by water,
  2087.  
  2088. 442
  2089. 00:28:01,291 --> 00:28:02,256
  2090. all over the Earth!
  2091.  
  2092. 443
  2093. 00:28:02,258 --> 00:28:03,623
  2094. Most of the fossil record
  2095.  
  2096. 444
  2097. 00:28:03,625 --> 00:28:04,756
  2098. is a result of the flood,
  2099.  
  2100. 445
  2101. 00:28:04,758 --> 00:28:06,823
  2102. not millions of years
  2103. of slow processes.
  2104.  
  2105. 446
  2106. 00:28:06,825 --> 00:28:09,289
  2107. The fossil record documents
  2108.  
  2109. 447
  2110. 00:28:09,291 --> 00:28:11,791
  2111. the reality of
  2112. the Genesis Flood.
  2113.  
  2114. 448
  2115. 00:28:11,793 --> 00:28:13,823
  2116. It was also a
  2117. tectonic-catastrophe,
  2118.  
  2119. 449
  2120. 00:28:13,825 --> 00:28:18,557
  2121. large-scale plate motion,
  2122. migration of the continents
  2123.  
  2124. 450
  2125. 00:28:18,559 --> 00:28:20,556
  2126. by thousands of miles.
  2127.  
  2128. 451
  2129. 00:28:20,558 --> 00:28:23,823
  2130. Which means that all
  2131. the Atlantic Ocean
  2132.  
  2133. 452
  2134. 00:28:23,825 --> 00:28:26,222
  2135. opened up during the flood,
  2136.  
  2137. 453
  2138. 00:28:26,224 --> 00:28:28,423
  2139. the Indian Ocean opened
  2140. up during the flood
  2141.  
  2142. 454
  2143. 00:28:28,425 --> 00:28:30,356
  2144. transforming the
  2145. Earth's surface.
  2146.  
  2147. 455
  2148. 00:28:30,358 --> 00:28:32,756
  2149. It is impossible to
  2150. walk away from the text
  2151.  
  2152. 456
  2153. 00:28:32,758 --> 00:28:35,089
  2154. thinking that this was some type
  2155.  
  2156. 457
  2157. 00:28:35,091 --> 00:28:37,123
  2158. of local Mesopotamian flood.
  2159.  
  2160. 458
  2161. 00:28:37,125 --> 00:28:40,824
  2162. This was a flood of
  2163. universal proportion
  2164.  
  2165. 459
  2166. 00:28:40,826 --> 00:28:44,156
  2167. in its destruction
  2168. of the Earth itself,
  2169.  
  2170. 460
  2171. 00:28:44,158 --> 00:28:45,690
  2172. its destruction of all mankind.
  2173.  
  2174. 461
  2175. 00:28:45,692 --> 00:28:48,556
  2176. The Bible tells
  2177. us of a worldwide Flood
  2178.  
  2179. 462
  2180. 00:28:48,558 --> 00:28:51,290
  2181. that radically
  2182. changed the climate
  2183.  
  2184. 463
  2185. 00:28:51,292 --> 00:28:53,624
  2186. and devastated the continents
  2187.  
  2188. 464
  2189. 00:28:53,626 --> 00:28:56,057
  2190. thousands of years
  2191. before scientists
  2192.  
  2193. 465
  2194. 00:28:56,059 --> 00:28:58,623
  2195. would even propose ice ages.
  2196.  
  2197. 466
  2198. 00:28:58,625 --> 00:29:01,489
  2199. The irony being that
  2200. these same scientists
  2201.  
  2202. 467
  2203. 00:29:01,491 --> 00:29:03,557
  2204. would confirm the possibility
  2205.  
  2206. 468
  2207. 00:29:03,559 --> 00:29:07,156
  2208. of great global floods
  2209. on planets like Mars,
  2210.  
  2211. 469
  2212. 00:29:07,158 --> 00:29:10,424
  2213. and yet still deny
  2214. that a global flood
  2215.  
  2216. 470
  2217. 00:29:10,426 --> 00:29:12,157
  2218. was possible on Earth.
  2219.  
  2220. 471
  2221. 00:29:12,159 --> 00:29:14,490
  2222. You see, the Bible
  2223. already stated
  2224.  
  2225. 472
  2226. 00:29:14,492 --> 00:29:16,490
  2227. there was a worldwide flood,
  2228.  
  2229. 473
  2230. 00:29:16,492 --> 00:29:19,356
  2231. and they don't want
  2232. to validate the Bible.
  2233.  
  2234. 474
  2235. 00:29:19,358 --> 00:29:24,222
  2236. They'll come up with any other
  2237. explanation but the truth.
  2238.  
  2239. 475
  2240. 00:29:24,224 --> 00:29:27,222
  2241. For 150 days, the waters
  2242. covered the mountains.
  2243.  
  2244. 476
  2245. 00:29:27,224 --> 00:29:29,290
  2246. They prevailed over the Earth.
  2247.  
  2248. 477
  2249. 00:29:29,292 --> 00:29:31,689
  2250. Five months of
  2251. torrential downpour rain,
  2252.  
  2253. 478
  2254. 00:29:31,691 --> 00:29:33,757
  2255. of the fountains
  2256. of the great deep
  2257.  
  2258. 479
  2259. 00:29:33,759 --> 00:29:35,423
  2260. being broken open
  2261. and gushing out water
  2262.  
  2263. 480
  2264. 00:29:35,425 --> 00:29:37,157
  2265. from beneath as well.
  2266.  
  2267. 481
  2268. 00:29:37,159 --> 00:29:38,623
  2269. The tehome rabbah,
  2270. the great deep,
  2271.  
  2272. 482
  2273. 00:29:38,625 --> 00:29:40,623
  2274. which immediately
  2275. takes the reader back
  2276.  
  2277. 483
  2278. 00:29:40,625 --> 00:29:43,222
  2279. to Genesis chapter
  2280. one, verse two,
  2281.  
  2282. 484
  2283. 00:29:43,224 --> 00:29:45,222
  2284. where we have a
  2285. water-covered Earth.
  2286.  
  2287. 485
  2288. 00:29:45,224 --> 00:29:48,090
  2289. Then on the third day,
  2290. God also makes the plants
  2291.  
  2292. 486
  2293. 00:29:48,092 --> 00:29:51,357
  2294. and the trees of the field
  2295. with the fruit in them,
  2296.  
  2297. 487
  2298. 00:29:51,359 --> 00:29:53,389
  2299. with seed already in them.
  2300.  
  2301. 488
  2302. 00:29:53,391 --> 00:29:55,123
  2303. Some people object
  2304. to that and say,
  2305.  
  2306. 489
  2307. 00:29:55,125 --> 00:29:57,489
  2308. "But wait a minute, the
  2309. plants were made on day three,
  2310.  
  2311. 490
  2312. 00:29:57,491 --> 00:29:59,424
  2313. "but the sun wasn't
  2314. made until day four.
  2315.  
  2316. 491
  2317. 00:29:59,426 --> 00:30:03,057
  2318. "How can you have plants
  2319. without light from the sun?"
  2320.  
  2321. 492
  2322. 00:30:03,059 --> 00:30:04,423
  2323. But you have light on day one.
  2324.  
  2325. 493
  2326. 00:30:04,425 --> 00:30:06,157
  2327. God said, "Let there be light."
  2328.  
  2329. 494
  2330. 00:30:06,159 --> 00:30:08,157
  2331. We are not told where
  2332. the light came from.
  2333.  
  2334. 495
  2335. 00:30:08,159 --> 00:30:10,290
  2336. Presumably, He had
  2337. a source for light.
  2338.  
  2339. 496
  2340. 00:30:10,292 --> 00:30:13,156
  2341. Light exists independent
  2342. of its source anyway,
  2343.  
  2344. 497
  2345. 00:30:13,158 --> 00:30:14,624
  2346. if you think about it.
  2347.  
  2348. 498
  2349. 00:30:14,626 --> 00:30:16,623
  2350. And the sun was made on day four
  2351.  
  2352. 499
  2353. 00:30:16,625 --> 00:30:19,557
  2354. to be the light-bearer
  2355. from that time onwards.
  2356.  
  2357. 500
  2358. 00:30:19,559 --> 00:30:20,756
  2359. It's interesting.
  2360.  
  2361. 501
  2362. 00:30:20,758 --> 00:30:22,389
  2363. In the Old Testament,
  2364. God warns the Israelites
  2365.  
  2366. 502
  2367. 00:30:22,391 --> 00:30:24,690
  2368. not to worship the sun
  2369. like the pagans do.
  2370.  
  2371. 503
  2372. 00:30:24,692 --> 00:30:26,423
  2373. And I believe one of the
  2374. reasons that God left the sun
  2375.  
  2376. 504
  2377. 00:30:26,425 --> 00:30:28,623
  2378. until day four was to show that
  2379.  
  2380. 505

  2385. 506

  2393. 508
  2394. 00:30:36,225 --> 00:30:39,026

  2510. 534
  2511. 00:35:01,592 --> 00:35:04,223
  2512. They say, "Why does the

  2514.  
  2515. 535
  2516. 00:35:04,225 --> 00:35:06,589
  2517. I read this book

  2520. 536
  2521. 00:35:06,591 --> 00:35:07,755
  2522. The Anthropic Principle.
  2523.  
  2524. 537
  2525. 00:35:07,757 --> 00:35:09,688
  2526. It's a tome of over
  2527. a thousand pages.
  2528.  
  2529. 538
  2530. 00:35:09,690 --> 00:35:11,057
  2531. They draw this interesting story
  2532.  
  2533. 539
  2534. 00:35:11,059 --> 00:35:13,822
  2535. that the world appears
  2536. to be designed.
  2537.  
  2538. 540
  2539. 00:35:13,824 --> 00:35:17,290
  2540. When I got done, they said it
  2541. just appears to be designed,
  2542.  
  2543. 541
  2544. 00:35:17,292 --> 00:35:18,822
  2545. there really is no design there.
  2546.  
  2547. 542
  2548. 00:35:18,824 --> 00:35:21,222
  2549. I'm thinking, well, you
  2550. look at the evidence
  2551.  
  2552. 543
  2553. 00:35:21,224 --> 00:35:23,090
  2554. and you deny that the
  2555. evidence is there.
  2556.  
  2557. 544
  2558. 00:35:23,092 --> 00:35:27,688
  2559. How can you not believe that
  2560. somebody designed all of this?
  2561.  
  2562. 545
  2563. 00:35:27,690 --> 00:35:29,256
  2564. The secular world says
  2565.  
  2566. 546
  2567. 00:35:29,258 --> 00:35:31,688
  2568. that the big bang occurred
  2569. 14 billion years ago.
  2570.  
  2571. 547
  2572. 00:35:31,690 --> 00:35:34,222
  2573. Everything was
  2574. compacted into one spot.
  2575.  
  2576. 548
  2577. 00:35:34,224 --> 00:35:36,755
  2578. It expanded, then the
  2579. stars formed themselves,
  2580.  
  2581. 549
  2582. 00:35:36,757 --> 00:35:39,489
  2583. and then our sun formed, and
  2584. in the dust around the sun,
  2585.  
  2586. 550
  2587. 00:35:39,491 --> 00:35:40,459
  2588. the Earth formed.
  2589.  
  2590. 551
  2591. 00:35:41,358 --> 00:35:42,189
  2592. It was a hot molten blob,
  2593.  
  2594. 552
  2595. 00:35:42,191 --> 00:35:43,423
  2596. got covered by water,
  2597.  
  2598. 553
  2599. 00:35:43,425 --> 00:35:44,823
  2600. and then biological
  2601. evolution happened.
  2602.  
  2603. 554
  2604. 00:35:44,825 --> 00:35:47,490
  2605. But if that's the case, you
  2606. have any number of problems.
  2607.  
  2608. 555
  2609. 00:35:47,492 --> 00:35:49,357
  2610. According to evolution theory,
  2611.  
  2612. 556
  2613. 00:35:49,359 --> 00:35:51,556
  2614. or at least atheist
  2615. evolution theory,
  2616.  
  2617. 557
  2618. 00:35:51,558 --> 00:35:54,157
  2619. the big bang created everything,
  2620.  
  2621. 558
  2622. 00:35:54,159 --> 00:35:55,357
  2623. gas clouds went everywhere,
  2624.  
  2625. 559
  2626. 00:35:55,359 --> 00:35:58,156
  2627. and stars contracted from gas
  2628. clouds out of their gravity.
  2629.  
  2630. 560
  2631. 00:35:58,158 --> 00:36:00,524
  2632. Well, it's impossible for
  2633. gas clouds to contract
  2634.  
  2635. 561
  2636. 00:36:00,526 --> 00:36:03,256
  2637. out of their gravity because
  2638. as soon as you get a gas cloud
  2639.  
  2640. 562
  2641. 00:36:03,258 --> 00:36:06,456
  2642. that compressed,
  2643. it's gonna heat up.
  2644.  
  2645. 563
  2646. 00:36:06,458 --> 00:36:08,756
  2647. And hot gasses want to expand,
  2648.  
  2649. 564
  2650. 00:36:08,758 --> 00:36:11,457
  2651. and that expansion force
  2652. is a hundred times or more
  2653.  
  2654. 565
  2655. 00:36:11,459 --> 00:36:13,489
  2656. than the force of gravity.
  2657.  
  2658. 566
  2659. 00:36:13,491 --> 00:36:14,822
  2660. It could never happen.
  2661.  
  2662. 567
  2663. 00:36:14,824 --> 00:36:16,623
  2664. There are all these dog
  2665. ate my homework stories
  2666.  
  2667. 568
  2668. 00:36:16,625 --> 00:36:19,489
  2669. about how gravity
  2670. waves from black holes
  2671.  
  2672. 569
  2673. 00:36:19,491 --> 00:36:22,689
  2674. might do a push-pull
  2675. thing on gas clouds
  2676.  
  2677. 570
  2678. 00:36:22,691 --> 00:36:24,489
  2679. and make this actually happen.
  2680.  
  2681. 571
  2682. 00:36:24,491 --> 00:36:26,556
  2683. But you have a chicken
  2684. and the egg problem here,
  2685.  
  2686. 572
  2687. 00:36:26,558 --> 00:36:29,524
  2688. because don't black
  2689. holes come from stars?
  2690.  
  2691. 573
  2692. 00:36:29,526 --> 00:36:31,390
  2693. So you have to get stars
  2694. in the first place!
  2695.  
  2696. 574
  2697. 00:36:31,392 --> 00:36:33,489
  2698. There are many, many
  2699. questions in science
  2700.  
  2701. 575
  2702. 00:36:33,491 --> 00:36:35,489
  2703. that have not been answered.
  2704.  
  2705. 576
  2706. 00:36:35,491 --> 00:36:37,656
  2707. But there are many questions
  2708. that have been answered.
  2709.  
  2710. 577
  2711. 00:36:37,658 --> 00:36:41,157
  2712. So far, it is the problem
  2713. for the evolutionist
  2714.  
  2715. 578
  2716. 00:36:41,159 --> 00:36:43,222
  2717. of the questions that
  2718. have been answered,
  2719.  
  2720. 579
  2721. 00:36:43,224 --> 00:36:45,588
  2722. like the coalescence
  2723. of the stars,
  2724.  
  2725. 580
  2726. 00:36:45,590 --> 00:36:48,622
  2727. like violating the first
  2728. law of thermodynamics,
  2729.  
  2730. 581
  2731. 00:36:48,624 --> 00:36:50,823
  2732. that matter and energy cannot
  2733. be created or destroyed,
  2734.  
  2735. 582
  2736. 00:36:50,825 --> 00:36:54,623
  2737. the big bang insists that
  2738. happened at least once.
  2739.  
  2740. 583
  2741. 00:36:54,625 --> 00:36:57,489
  2742. Many people think the
  2743. universe popped into existence
  2744.  
  2745. 584
  2746. 00:36:57,491 --> 00:36:59,623
  2747. instantly in a big bang,
  2748. and it happened by itself!
  2749.  
  2750. 585
  2751. 00:36:59,625 --> 00:37:03,623
  2752. Somehow matter has
  2753. spontaneously come into existence
  2754.  
  2755. 586
  2756. 00:37:03,625 --> 00:37:05,556
  2757. without a prior cause.
  2758.  
  2759. 587
  2760. 00:37:05,558 --> 00:37:08,556
  2761. They have some problems
  2762. with the laws of nature.
  2763.  
  2764. 588
  2765. 00:37:08,558 --> 00:37:10,122
  2766. I was speaking to
  2767. the Vice President
  2768.  
  2769. 589
  2770. 00:37:10,124 --> 00:37:12,090
  2771. of the Darwin Coalition
  2772. once and I said,
  2773.  
  2774. 590
  2775. 00:37:12,092 --> 00:37:14,356
  2776. "You all believe in
  2777. spontaneous generation!"
  2778.  
  2779. 591
  2780. 00:37:14,358 --> 00:37:15,289
  2781. He said, "We do not!"
  2782.  
  2783. 592
  2784. 00:37:15,291 --> 00:37:16,688
  2785. I said, "Yes you do.
  2786.  
  2787. 593
  2788. 00:37:16,690 --> 00:37:18,290
  2789. "You believe it happened
  2790. at least once, don't you?"
  2791.  
  2792. 594
  2793. 00:37:18,292 --> 00:37:21,490
  2794. Why would a smart person
  2795. be so easily fogged
  2796.  
  2797. 595
  2798. 00:37:21,492 --> 00:37:24,290
  2799. and fooled by a dumb suggestion?
  2800.  
  2801. 596
  2802. 00:37:24,292 --> 00:37:27,056
  2803. That actually his
  2804. theory does violate
  2805.  
  2806. 597
  2807. 00:37:27,058 --> 00:37:30,090
  2808. the known discoveries
  2809. and laws of science.
  2810.  
  2811. 598
  2812. 00:37:30,092 --> 00:37:33,157
  2813. We have two very
  2814. important concepts
  2815.  
  2816. 599
  2817. 00:37:33,159 --> 00:37:35,689
  2818. in physics called the
  2819. first and second laws
  2820.  
  2821. 600
  2822. 00:37:35,691 --> 00:37:36,623
  2823. of thermodynamics.
  2824.  
  2825. 601
  2826. 00:37:36,625 --> 00:37:39,222
  2827. The first law says
  2828. that energy is neither
  2829.  
  2830. 602
  2831. 00:37:39,224 --> 00:37:40,689
  2832. created nor destroyed.
  2833.  
  2834. 603
  2835. 00:37:40,691 --> 00:37:43,755
  2836. And equally as valid
  2837. as the first law is...
  2838.  
  2839. 604
  2840. 00:37:43,757 --> 00:37:46,057
  2841. The second law
  2842. of thermodynamics,
  2843.  
  2844. 605
  2845. 00:37:46,059 --> 00:37:48,755
  2846. which sayst hings are
  2847. currently running down,
  2848.  
  2849. 606
  2850. 00:37:48,757 --> 00:37:50,457
  2851. energy is becoming less useful.
  2852.  
  2853. 607
  2854. 00:37:50,459 --> 00:37:53,555
  2855. The useful amount of
  2856. energy is always decreasing,
  2857.  
  2858. 608
  2859. 00:37:53,557 --> 00:37:55,622
  2860. and we measure this with
  2861. a thing called entropy.
  2862.  
  2863. 609
  2864. 00:37:55,624 --> 00:37:57,823
  2865. The entropy is
  2866. always increasing.
  2867.  
  2868. 610
  2869. 00:37:57,825 --> 00:38:01,222
  2870. It's almost as if the world
  2871. was wound-up like a clock,
  2872.  
  2873. 611
  2874. 00:38:01,224 --> 00:38:02,424
  2875. and it's been unwinding.
  2876.  
  2877. 612
  2878. 00:38:02,426 --> 00:38:03,357
  2879. The second law would
  2880. seem to argue...
  2881.  
  2882. 613
  2883. 00:38:03,359 --> 00:38:06,222
  2884. That the universe
  2885. has not always existed,
  2886.  
  2887. 614
  2888. 00:38:06,224 --> 00:38:08,256
  2889. the material universe
  2890. has not always existed.
  2891.  
  2892. 615
  2893. 00:38:08,258 --> 00:38:11,522
  2894. But the first law says you
  2895. could not have a beginning.
  2896.  
  2897. 616
  2898. 00:38:11,524 --> 00:38:12,556
  2899. So, we have this contradiction.
  2900.  
  2901. 617
  2902. 00:38:12,558 --> 00:38:13,790
  2903. We have this tension.
  2904.  
  2905. 618
  2906. 00:38:13,792 --> 00:38:15,689
  2907. Both laws are equally true.
  2908.  
  2909. 619
  2910. 00:38:15,691 --> 00:38:19,189
  2911. And yet both laws, if
  2912. extrapolated into the past,
  2913.  
  2914. 620
  2915. 00:38:19,191 --> 00:38:21,356
  2916. contradict each other.
  2917.  
  2918. 621
  2919. 00:38:21,358 --> 00:38:24,689
  2920. Physically, the universe
  2921. has no natural explanation,
  2922.  
  2923. 622
  2924. 00:38:24,691 --> 00:38:26,423
  2925. it doesn't have a
  2926. physical explanation.
  2927.  
  2928. 623
  2929. 00:38:26,425 --> 00:38:28,556
  2930. The other thing they've done
  2931. in our educational system,
  2932.  
  2933. 624
  2934. 00:38:28,558 --> 00:38:30,755
  2935. they said that science
  2936. can only explain things
  2937.  
  2938. 625
  2939. 00:38:30,757 --> 00:38:32,423
  2940. by natural processes.
  2941.  
  2942. 626
  2943. 00:38:32,425 --> 00:38:34,556
  2944. They have even changed the
  2945. definition of science from
  2946.  
  2947. 627
  2948. 00:38:34,558 --> 00:38:37,289
  2949. the study of the natural
  2950. world using the five senses
  2951.  
  2952. 628
  2953. 00:38:37,291 --> 00:38:40,689
  2954. to be the search for
  2955. natural explanations.
  2956.  
  2957. 629
  2958. 00:38:40,691 --> 00:38:42,289
  2959. But who decided that?
  2960.  
  2961. 630
  2962. 00:38:42,291 --> 00:38:43,623
  2963. That's an arbitrary definition.
  2964.  
  2965. 631
  2966. 00:38:43,625 --> 00:38:46,790
  2967. That specifically
  2968. excludes any possibility
  2969.  
  2970. 632
  2971. 00:38:46,792 --> 00:38:48,822
  2972. of God being involved.
  2973.  
  2974. 633
  2975. 00:38:48,824 --> 00:38:51,123
  2976. God has not only
  2977. been kicked out,
  2978.  
  2979. 634
  2980. 00:38:51,125 --> 00:38:53,222
  2981. but he is treated
  2982. as most unwelcome.
  2983.  
  2984. 635
  2985. 00:38:53,224 --> 00:38:55,756
  2986. They have totally changed
  2987. the methodology of science.
  2988.  
  2989. 636
  2990. 00:38:55,758 --> 00:38:58,588
  2991. We need to bring
  2992. the worlds of science
  2993.  
  2994. 637
  2995. 00:38:58,590 --> 00:39:02,322
  2996. and the Bible together
  2997. for people so they see
  2998.  
  2999. 638
  3000. 00:39:02,324 --> 00:39:04,057
  3001. they mesh.
  3002.  
  3003. 639
  3004. 00:39:04,059 --> 00:39:06,755
  3005. It's the unbelievers that
  3006. have a problem, not us.
  3007.  
  3008. 640
  3009. 00:39:06,757 --> 00:39:09,823
  3010. From a secular perspective,
  3011. they can only get light
  3012.  
  3013. 641
  3014. 00:39:09,825 --> 00:39:11,422
  3015. about halfway
  3016. across the universe.
  3017.  
  3018. 642
  3019. 00:39:11,424 --> 00:39:13,157
  3020. That's why they have
  3021. inflation theories
  3022.  
  3023. 643
  3024. 00:39:13,159 --> 00:39:15,157
  3025. and super-inflation
  3026. theories and so on,
  3027.  
  3028. 644
  3029. 00:39:15,159 --> 00:39:16,357
  3030. because they have a problem.
  3031.  
  3032. 645
  3033. 00:39:16,359 --> 00:39:17,755
  3034. They have a light
  3035. time-travel problem.
  3036.  
  3037. 646
  3038. 00:39:17,757 --> 00:39:20,555
  3039. The problem is actually
  3040. worse that we sometimes think.
  3041.  
  3042. 647
  3043. 00:39:20,557 --> 00:39:23,089
  3044. Alpha Centauri is more
  3045. than four light years away.
  3046.  
  3047. 648
  3048. 00:39:23,091 --> 00:39:25,622
  3049. God had to get that light
  3050. here not in four years,
  3051.  
  3052. 649
  3053. 00:39:25,624 --> 00:39:28,456
  3054. but actually at the
  3055. end of day four.
  3056.  
  3057. 650
  3058. 00:39:28,458 --> 00:39:30,323
  3059. We used to call that
  3060. the starlight problem.
  3061.  
  3062. 651
  3063. 00:39:30,325 --> 00:39:33,589
  3064. The nearest galaxy
  3065. to us is two million,
  3066.  
  3067. 652
  3068. 00:39:33,591 --> 00:39:35,489
  3069. one and a half million
  3070. light years away,
  3071.  
  3072. 653
  3073. 00:39:35,491 --> 00:39:37,323
  3074. wouldn't it take at least
  3075. one and a half million years
  3076.  
  3077. 654
  3078. 00:39:37,325 --> 00:39:38,488
  3079. for that light to get here?
  3080.  
  3081. 655
  3082. 00:39:38,490 --> 00:39:41,089
  3083. And yes, in straight
  3084. space, it would.
  3085.  
  3086. 656
  3087. 00:39:41,091 --> 00:39:43,290
  3088. But even the big bang
  3089. theorists will say
  3090.  
  3091. 657
  3092. 00:39:43,292 --> 00:39:46,356
  3093. that space and
  3094. dimension unfolded.
  3095.  
  3096. 658
  3097. 00:39:46,358 --> 00:39:50,089
  3098. Some people want to take
  3099. mentions in the Old Testament
  3100.  
  3101. 659
  3102. 00:39:50,091 --> 00:39:52,156
  3103. of God stretching out
  3104. the heavens like a tent
  3105.  
  3106. 660
  3107. 00:39:52,158 --> 00:39:56,622
  3108. or a canopy, stretching that
  3109. light miraculously to get here.
  3110.  
  3111. 661
  3112. 00:39:56,624 --> 00:39:58,356
  3113. "He stretches out the heavens
  3114.  
  3115. 662
  3116. 00:39:58,358 --> 00:40:00,090
  3117. as a tent upon a
  3118. pole to dwell in.
  3119.  
  3120. 663
  3121. 00:40:00,092 --> 00:40:01,822
  3122. "He stretches out the
  3123. heavens as a curtain.
  3124.  
  3125. 664
  3126. 00:40:01,824 --> 00:40:04,157
  3127. "He then arched the heavens".
  3128.  
  3129. 665
  3130. 00:40:04,159 --> 00:40:05,290
  3131. "He then bowed the heavens".
  3132.  
  3133. 666
  3134. 00:40:05,292 --> 00:40:06,456
  3135. "He stretched out the heavens
  3136. across the North place".
  3137.  
  3138. 667
  3139. 00:40:06,458 --> 00:40:08,089
  3140. All these verses and many more
  3141.  
  3142. 668
  3143. 00:40:08,091 --> 00:40:10,423
  3144. indicate that the way that
  3145. God did it was stretching.
  3146.  
  3147. 669
  3148. 00:40:10,425 --> 00:40:12,323
  3149. The
  3150. telescope has been around
  3151.  
  3152. 670
  3153. 00:40:12,325 --> 00:40:15,656
  3154. for hundreds of years and has
  3155. played an instrumental role
  3156.  
  3157. 671
  3158. 00:40:15,658 --> 00:40:18,522
  3159. in many of our greatest
  3160. discoveries about the universe.
  3161.  
  3162. 672
  3163. 00:40:18,524 --> 00:40:22,157
  3164. Telescopes much larger
  3165. and more advanced
  3166.  
  3167. 673
  3168. 00:40:22,159 --> 00:40:24,489
  3169. than these were used
  3170. in the early 1900s
  3171.  
  3172. 674
  3173. 00:40:24,491 --> 00:40:27,555
  3174. to measure what became
  3175. known as red shift,
  3176.  
  3177. 675
  3178. 00:40:27,557 --> 00:40:32,290
  3179. a form of measurement which
  3180. provided empirical evidence
  3181.  
  3182. 676
  3183. 00:40:32,292 --> 00:40:34,423
  3184. that space was stretching.
  3185.  
  3186. 677
  3187. 00:40:34,425 --> 00:40:37,688
  3188. This meant that
  3189. space-time itself
  3190.  
  3191. 678
  3192. 00:40:37,690 --> 00:40:42,189
  3193. could actually be manipulated
  3194. as if it were fabric.
  3195.  
  3196. 679
  3197. 00:40:42,191 --> 00:40:45,555
  3198. This understanding would
  3199. begin to bring answers
  3200.  
  3201. 680
  3202. 00:40:45,557 --> 00:40:48,623
  3203. to some of the biggest
  3204. mysteries of the universe.
  3205.  
  3206. 681
  3207. 00:40:48,625 --> 00:40:52,156
  3208. But this concept was
  3209. just a recognition
  3210.  
  3211. 682
  3212. 00:40:52,158 --> 00:40:54,388
  3213. of what the Bible
  3214. already revealed.
  3215.  
  3216. 683
  3217. 00:40:54,390 --> 00:40:57,789
  3218. In the books of
  3219. both Isaiah and Job,
  3220.  
  3221. 684
  3222. 00:40:57,791 --> 00:41:02,422
  3223. God said he stretched out
  3224. the heavens like a curtain,
  3225.  
  3226. 685
  3227. 00:41:02,424 --> 00:41:06,156
  3228. and that he created the
  3229. heavens and stretched them out.
  3230.  
  3231. 686
  3232. 00:41:06,158 --> 00:41:08,456
  3233. These verses gave
  3234. us further insight
  3235.  
  3236. 687
  3237. 00:41:08,458 --> 00:41:10,689
  3238. to the dimensionality of space
  3239.  
  3240. 688
  3241. 00:41:10,691 --> 00:41:13,589
  3242. and showed us that the
  3243. universe has been stretched
  3244.  
  3245. 689
  3246. 00:41:13,591 --> 00:41:15,288
  3247. since the beginning of Creation.
  3248.  
  3249. 690
  3250. 00:41:15,290 --> 00:41:17,556
  3251. The implications of
  3252. this biblical concept
  3253.  
  3254. 691
  3255. 00:41:17,558 --> 00:41:20,455
  3256. have been better
  3257. understood in modern times.
  3258.  
  3259. 692
  3260. 00:41:20,457 --> 00:41:24,122
  3261. What's equally extraordinary
  3262. is that the Bible
  3263.  
  3264. 693
  3265. 00:41:24,124 --> 00:41:26,156
  3266. also revealed that
  3267. the Earth is round
  3268.  
  3269. 694
  3270. 00:41:26,158 --> 00:41:29,656
  3271. and that it floats in
  3272. space, hanging upon nothing.
  3273.  
  3274. 695
  3275. 00:41:29,658 --> 00:41:33,089
  3276. Amazing insights
  3277. proclaimed at a time
  3278.  
  3279. 696
  3280. 00:41:33,091 --> 00:41:37,089
  3281. when some ancient cultures
  3282. believed the Earth is flat.
  3283.  
  3284. 697
  3285. 00:41:37,091 --> 00:41:41,056
  3286. The Bible has always
  3287. been, and shall ever be,
  3288.  
  3289. 698
  3290. 00:41:41,058 --> 00:41:44,822
  3291. validated by real science.
  3292.  
  3293. 699
  3294. 00:41:44,824 --> 00:41:47,222
  3295. Edwin Hubble is
  3296. credited with perhaps
  3297.  
  3298. 700
  3299. 00:41:47,224 --> 00:41:49,057
  3300. the greatest
  3301. discovery, maybe one of
  3302.  
  3303. 701
  3304. 00:41:49,059 --> 00:41:50,756
  3305. the greatest
  3306. discoveries of astronomy
  3307.  
  3308. 702
  3309. 00:41:50,758 --> 00:41:52,356
  3310. in the 20th century.
  3311.  
  3312. 703
  3313. 00:41:52,358 --> 00:41:54,423
  3314. The idea of what we call the
  3315. expansion of the universe.
  3316.  
  3317. 704
  3318. 00:41:54,425 --> 00:41:56,756
  3319. And if it's expanding,
  3320. then you would expect more
  3321.  
  3322. 705
  3323. 00:41:56,758 --> 00:41:59,289
  3324. distant objects to appear to
  3325. be moving farther away from us.
  3326.  
  3327. 706
  3328. 00:41:59,291 --> 00:42:01,223
  3329. As the universe gets larger,
  3330.  
  3331. 707
  3332. 00:42:01,225 --> 00:42:03,289
  3333. there should be a
  3334. relationship between distance
  3335.  
  3336. 708
  3337. 00:42:03,291 --> 00:42:05,622
  3338. and that apparent
  3339. motion between us.
  3340.  
  3341. 709
  3342. 00:42:05,624 --> 00:42:08,555
  3343. And we measure that
  3344. motion by the red shifts.
  3345.  
  3346. 710
  3347. 00:42:08,557 --> 00:42:10,655
  3348. Now according to
  3349. Albert Einstein,
  3350.  
  3351. 711
  3352. 00:42:10,657 --> 00:42:14,321
  3353. if you actually stretch
  3354. the fabric of space,
  3355.  
  3356. 712
  3357. 00:42:14,323 --> 00:42:17,488
  3358. you will also essentially
  3359. and necessarily
  3360.  
  3361. 713
  3362. 00:42:17,490 --> 00:42:19,689
  3363. have to stretch
  3364. the fabric of time.
  3365.  
  3366. 714
  3367. 00:42:19,691 --> 00:42:22,355
  3368. So, Andromeda is not
  3369. just two million,
  3370.  
  3371. 715
  3372. 00:42:22,357 --> 00:42:25,321
  3373. one and a half
  3374. million light years
  3375.  
  3376. 716
  3377. 00:42:25,323 --> 00:42:27,623
  3378. in spatial displacement
  3379. over that way,
  3380.  
  3381. 717
  3382. 00:42:27,625 --> 00:42:30,156
  3383. but also, it's also
  3384. time-stretched.
  3385.  
  3386. 718
  3387. 00:42:30,158 --> 00:42:32,689
  3388. Yes, we're looking at
  3389. the galaxy of Andromeda
  3390.  
  3391. 719
  3392. 00:42:32,691 --> 00:42:35,755
  3393. as it looked at a previous time.
  3394.  
  3395. 720
  3396. 00:42:35,757 --> 00:42:38,090
  3397. But we are also
  3398. looking at a galaxy
  3399.  
  3400. 721
  3401. 00:42:38,092 --> 00:42:40,523
  3402. that has experienced
  3403. more time than we have
  3404.  
  3405. 722
  3406. 00:42:40,525 --> 00:42:44,156
  3407. if we are anywhere closer to
  3408. the center of the stretching.
  3409.  
  3410. 723
  3411. 00:42:44,158 --> 00:42:47,157
  3412. William Tifft, who back
  3413. about forty years ago
  3414.  
  3415. 724
  3416. 00:42:47,159 --> 00:42:49,688
  3417. discovered something
  3418. interesting in the red shifts
  3419.  
  3420. 725
  3421. 00:42:49,690 --> 00:42:51,156
  3422. of galaxies.
  3423.  
  3424. 726
  3425. 00:42:51,158 --> 00:42:54,422
  3426. The universe consists
  3427. of concentric shells
  3428.  
  3429. 727
  3430. 00:42:54,424 --> 00:42:59,321
  3431. of galaxies, and we are
  3432. near the center of that.
  3433.  
  3434. 728
  3435. 00:42:59,323 --> 00:43:02,289
  3436. If we are placed there
  3437. by God for some reason,
  3438.  
  3439. 729
  3440. 00:43:02,291 --> 00:43:03,689
  3441. that's what you might expect.
  3442.  
  3443. 730
  3444. 00:43:03,691 --> 00:43:05,556
  3445. Astronomers have more
  3446. or less ignored Tifft's
  3447.  
  3448. 731
  3449. 00:43:05,558 --> 00:43:07,255
  3450. work over the years
  3451. and yet, actually,
  3452.  
  3453. 732
  3454. 00:43:07,257 --> 00:43:08,522
  3455. it's staring them in the face.
  3456.  
  3457. 733
  3458. 00:43:08,524 --> 00:43:11,155
  3459. In astronomy, as in
  3460. any other science,
  3461.  
  3462. 734
  3463. 00:43:11,157 --> 00:43:12,488
  3464. I think there are evidences
  3465.  
  3466. 735
  3467. 00:43:12,490 --> 00:43:15,089
  3468. that the world is far younger
  3469. than many people think.
  3470.  
  3471. 736
  3472. 00:43:15,091 --> 00:43:16,388
  3473. Spiral galaxies would
  3474. be a good example.
  3475.  
  3476. 737
  3477. 00:43:16,390 --> 00:43:19,189
  3478. They actually spin more
  3479. rapidly at the center,
  3480.  
  3481. 738
  3482. 00:43:19,191 --> 00:43:21,056
  3483. and more slowly
  3484. out at the edges.
  3485.  
  3486. 739
  3487. 00:43:21,058 --> 00:43:23,589
  3488. Obviously if this thing
  3489. spins around several times,
  3490.  
  3491. 740
  3492. 00:43:23,591 --> 00:43:26,321
  3493. it starts smearing
  3494. out the spiral arms.
  3495.  
  3496. 741
  3497. 00:43:26,323 --> 00:43:29,422
  3498. And as that happens,
  3499. you would spin it out
  3500.  
  3501. 742
  3502. 00:43:29,424 --> 00:43:31,456
  3503. to the point, you would end up
  3504. with just an amorphous disk.
  3505.  
  3506. 743
  3507. 00:43:31,458 --> 00:43:33,488
  3508. They think these
  3509. galaxies are at least
  3510.  
  3511. 744
  3512. 00:43:33,490 --> 00:43:35,655
  3513. ten billion years
  3514. old, so these things
  3515.  
  3516. 745
  3517. 00:43:35,657 --> 00:43:37,689
  3518. would be entirely smeared out.
  3519.  
  3520. 746
  3521. 00:43:37,691 --> 00:43:39,756
  3522. But in six thousand years, not
  3523. much smearing taking place.
  3524.  
  3525. 747
  3526. 00:43:39,758 --> 00:43:41,689
  3527. In billions of years,
  3528. it's a problem,
  3529.  
  3530. 748
  3531. 00:43:41,691 --> 00:43:43,522
  3532. in thousands of
  3533. years, not a problem.
  3534.  
  3535. 749
  3536. 00:43:43,524 --> 00:43:46,222
  3537. Comets really do have
  3538. something to say about the age
  3539.  
  3540. 750
  3541. 00:43:46,224 --> 00:43:48,156
  3542. of the solar system.
  3543.  
  3544. 751
  3545. 00:43:48,158 --> 00:43:50,156
  3546. We can divide comets
  3547. into two groups.
  3548.  
  3549. 752
  3550. 00:43:50,158 --> 00:43:52,221
  3551. We call the short-period
  3552. comets and long period comets.
  3553.  
  3554. 753
  3555. 00:43:52,223 --> 00:43:54,822
  3556. For short period comets,
  3557. a couple hundred years,
  3558.  
  3559. 754
  3560. 00:43:54,824 --> 00:43:56,090
  3561. they're all gone.
  3562.  
  3563. 755
  3564. 00:43:56,092 --> 00:43:57,289
  3565. There shouldn't be any left.
  3566.  
  3567. 756
  3568. 00:43:57,291 --> 00:43:58,822
  3569. Long period comets,
  3570. tens of millions
  3571.  
  3572. 757
  3573. 00:43:58,824 --> 00:44:01,156
  3574. or maybe a hundred
  3575. million years,
  3576.  
  3577. 758
  3578. 00:44:01,158 --> 00:44:02,488
  3579. but they're all gone again.
  3580.  
  3581. 759
  3582. 00:44:02,490 --> 00:44:04,289
  3583. So for a billions of
  3584. years solar system,
  3585.  
  3586. 760
  3587. 00:44:04,291 --> 00:44:07,422
  3588. you have a problem, thousands
  3589. of years, not a problem.
  3590.  
  3591. 761
  3592. 00:44:07,424 --> 00:44:10,156
  3593. We understand that the sun
  3594. is powered by nuclear fusion
  3595.  
  3596. 762
  3597. 00:44:10,158 --> 00:44:12,090
  3598. and that could power the
  3599. sun for billions of years.
  3600.  
  3601. 763
  3602. 00:44:12,092 --> 00:44:14,489
  3603. As it produces energy like
  3604. that, it changes its composition
  3605.  
  3606. 764
  3607. 00:44:14,491 --> 00:44:17,356
  3608. inside and over time it
  3609. should slowly brighten.
  3610.  
  3611. 765
  3612. 00:44:17,358 --> 00:44:19,823
  3613. And as it does, the
  3614. Earth would get warmer.
  3615.  
  3616. 766
  3617. 00:44:19,825 --> 00:44:22,289
  3618. Now again, over thousands
  3619. of years, not a problem.
  3620.  
  3621. 767
  3622. 00:44:22,291 --> 00:44:24,122
  3623. But if go back a couple billion,
  3624. three billion years or so
  3625.  
  3626. 768
  3627. 00:44:24,124 --> 00:44:26,823
  3628. when life first supposedly
  3629. developed on the planet,
  3630.  
  3631. 769
  3632. 00:44:26,825 --> 00:44:29,356
  3633. you have a problem
  3634. because the Earth
  3635.  
  3636. 770
  3637. 00:44:29,358 --> 00:44:30,589
  3638. would have been far colder.
  3639.  
  3640. 771
  3641. 00:44:30,591 --> 00:44:34,589
  3642. It would have been frozen, and
  3643. nobody thinks that happened.
  3644.  
  3645. 772
  3646. 00:44:34,591 --> 00:44:36,155
  3647. In billions of years,
  3648. it's a problem,
  3649.  
  3650. 773
  3651. 00:44:36,157 --> 00:44:38,088
  3652. thousands of years,
  3653. not a problem.
  3654.  
  3655. 774
  3656. 00:44:38,090 --> 00:44:40,588
  3657. In fact, other
  3658. planets in our solar system
  3659.  
  3660. 775
  3661. 00:44:40,590 --> 00:44:42,488
  3662. testify to a young
  3663. universe as well.
  3664.  
  3665. 776
  3666. 00:44:42,490 --> 00:44:46,156
  3667. Both the density and
  3668. magnetic field of Mercury
  3669.  
  3670. 777
  3671. 00:44:46,158 --> 00:44:48,555
  3672. cannot allow for
  3673. millions of years.
  3674.  
  3675. 778
  3676. 00:44:48,557 --> 00:44:52,288
  3677. In 1984, Russell Humphreys
  3678. correctly calculated
  3679.  
  3680. 779
  3681. 00:44:52,290 --> 00:44:55,122
  3682. the magnetic fields
  3683. of Uranus and Neptune
  3684.  
  3685. 780
  3686. 00:44:55,124 --> 00:44:58,155
  3687. several years before
  3688. the Voyager 2 satellite
  3689.  
  3690. 781
  3691. 00:44:58,157 --> 00:44:59,158
  3692. would measure them.
  3693.  
  3694. 782
  3695. 00:45:00,124 --> 00:45:02,689
  3696. Humphreys used a vital
  3697. clue from the Bible,
  3698.  
  3699. 783
  3700. 00:45:02,691 --> 00:45:05,588
  3701. that the universe was
  3702. made only 6,000 years ago.
  3703.  
  3704. 784
  3705. 00:45:05,590 --> 00:45:07,688
  3706. And when the surface
  3707. of Venus was mapped
  3708.  
  3709. 785
  3710. 00:45:07,690 --> 00:45:11,456
  3711. in the mid-nineties,
  3712. volcanoes, craters, mountains,
  3713.  
  3714. 786
  3715. 00:45:11,458 --> 00:45:14,221
  3716. and other features showed
  3717. the history of the planet
  3718.  
  3719. 787
  3720. 00:45:14,223 --> 00:45:16,088
  3721. was young.
  3722.  
  3723. 788
  3724. 00:45:16,090 --> 00:45:19,489
  3725. Neptune is too hot to be old.
  3726.  
  3727. 789
  3728. 00:45:19,491 --> 00:45:23,255
  3729. Pluto still has nitrogen
  3730. in its atmosphere.
  3731.  
  3732. 790
  3733. 00:45:23,257 --> 00:45:26,790
  3734. The rings of Saturn and
  3735. Neptune aren't uniform,
  3736.  
  3737. 791
  3738. 00:45:26,792 --> 00:45:30,288
  3739. as they would be after
  3740. millions of years.
  3741.  
  3742. 792
  3743. 00:45:30,290 --> 00:45:32,688
  3744. So, do we trust in
  3745. the timeline of men,
  3746.  
  3747. 793
  3748. 00:45:32,690 --> 00:45:36,623
  3749. who are repeatedly wrong and
  3750. having to change their beliefs?
  3751.  
  3752. 794
  3753. 00:45:36,625 --> 00:45:39,355
  3754. Or do we trust in the Bible,
  3755.  
  3756. 795
  3757. 00:45:39,357 --> 00:45:43,625
  3758. which has never been proven
  3759. wrong and does not change.
  3760.  
  3761. 796
  3762. 00:45:47,490 --> 00:45:52,525
  3763. "And God said, 'Let the
  3764. waters bring forth abundantly
  3765.  
  3766. 797
  3767. 00:45:58,557 --> 00:46:03,424
  3768. "the moving creature
  3769. that hath life,
  3770.  
  3771. 798

  3947. 836
  3948. 00:49:37,491 --> 00:49:39,821

  3950. only laws in biology,

  3952. 837
  3953. 00:49:39,823 --> 00:49:41,622
  3954. it's called the
  3955. law of biogenesis

  3957. 838
  3958. 00:49:41,624 --> 00:49:43,822
  3959. and it states that life comes
  3960. from life, not non-life.
  3961.  
  3962. 839
  3963. 00:49:43,824 --> 00:49:47,689
  3964. The law of biogenesis
  3965. that says that all life
  3966.  
  3967. 840
  3968. 00:49:47,691 --> 00:49:49,355
  3969. comes from pre-existing life.
  3970.  
  3971. 841
  3972. 00:49:49,357 --> 00:49:53,155
  3973. And yet evolution says that
  3974. life can come from non-life.
  3975.  
  3976. 842
  3977. 00:49:53,157 --> 00:49:54,256
  3978. Surprise!
  3979.  
  3980. 843
  3981. 00:49:54,258 --> 00:49:55,655
  3982. If you just wait long enough.
  3983.  
  3984. 844
  3985. 00:49:55,657 --> 00:49:57,623
  3986. But we see no
  3987. examples of that today.
  3988.  
  3989. 845
  3990. 00:49:57,625 --> 00:49:59,356
  3991. We can't observe it,
  3992. we can't repeat it,
  3993.  
  3994. 846
  3995. 00:49:59,358 --> 00:50:01,055
  3996. people just believe it blindly.

  3998. 847
  3999. 00:50:01,057 --> 00:50:03,089

  4001. done these sort of
  4002.

  4012. 850
  4013. 00:50:08,057 --> 00:50:09,455
  4014. of all these
  4015. different molecules,
  4016.  
  4017. 851
  4018. 00:50:09,457 --> 00:50:11,089
  4019. add a little bit of lightning...

  4021. 852
  4022. 00:50:11,091 --> 00:50:14,423
  4023. Cook everything together,
  4024. add a spark, and out comes...
  4025.  
  4026. 853
  4027. 00:50:14,425 --> 00:50:15,289
  4028. Tar.
  4029.  
  4030. 854
  4031. 00:50:15,291 --> 00:50:17,155
  4032. They end up with gunk.
  4033.  
  4034. 855
  4035. 00:50:17,157 --> 00:50:19,423
  4036. They have to do a lot of
  4037. tweaking to end up with...
  4038.  
  4039. 856
  4040. 00:50:19,425 --> 00:50:20,489
  4041. Amino acids.
  4042.  
  4043. 857
  4044. 00:50:20,491 --> 00:50:23,089
  4045. That's impressive, oooh.
  4046.  
  4047. 858
  4048. 00:50:23,091 --> 00:50:25,156
  4049. It's not even
  4050. meaningful information
  4051.  
  4052. 859
  4053. 00:50:25,158 --> 00:50:27,489
  4054. as far as DNA is concerned.
  4055.  
  4056. 860
  4057. 00:50:27,491 --> 00:50:29,754
  4058. Every evolutionary
  4059. story starts with
  4060.  
  4061. 861
  4062. 00:50:29,756 --> 00:50:31,754
  4063. the Miller-Urey experiment.
  4064.  
  4065. 862
  4066. 00:50:31,756 --> 00:50:33,355
  4067. The best yields that
  4068. they've ever gotten
  4069.  
  4070. 863
  4071. 00:50:33,357 --> 00:50:37,689
  4072. was 80% L-amino acids
  4073. and 20% D-amino acids.
  4074.  
  4075. 864
  4076. 00:50:37,691 --> 00:50:40,156
  4077. That means that every
  4078. fifth amino acid
  4079.  
  4080. 865
  4081. 00:50:40,158 --> 00:50:43,755
  4082. in a protein series would be
  4083. lethal to all forms of life
  4084.  
  4085. 866
  4086. 00:50:43,757 --> 00:50:45,355
  4087. on our planet!
  4088.  
  4089. 867
  4090. 00:50:45,357 --> 00:50:47,188
  4091. The evolutionists try to
  4092. get away from this problem
  4093.  
  4094. 868
  4095. 00:50:47,190 --> 00:50:48,588
  4096. of chirality.
  4097.  
  4098. 869
  4099. 00:50:48,590 --> 00:50:53,155
  4100. The odds for 250 parts
  4101. coming together is two times
  4102.  
  4103. 870
  4104. 00:50:53,157 --> 00:50:56,156
  4105. 10 raised to the 476th power.
  4106.  
  4107. 871
  4108. 00:50:56,158 --> 00:51:01,091
  4109. That's going to be a two with
  4110. 476 zeros following after it.
  4111.  
  4112. 872
  4113. 00:51:02,525 --> 00:51:07,559
  4114. That's the odds for the first
  4115. cell to come into existence!
  4116.  
  4117. 873
  4118. 00:51:09,223 --> 00:51:11,088
  4119. The best they've
  4120. been able to do
  4121.  
  4122. 874
  4123. 00:51:11,090 --> 00:51:13,721
  4124. is the idea that the amino
  4125. acids assembled themselves
  4126.  
  4127. 875
  4128. 00:51:13,723 --> 00:51:17,721
  4129. on the backs of floating
  4130. crystals in the ocean.
  4131.  
  4132. 876
  4133. 00:51:17,723 --> 00:51:19,822
  4134. Their schemes and the
  4135. things they have tried
  4136.  
  4137. 877
  4138. 00:51:19,824 --> 00:51:22,088
  4139. to imagine just don't work.
  4140.  
  4141. 878
  4142. 00:51:22,090 --> 00:51:25,288
  4143. If you take the cell
  4144. and you poke a hole in it,
  4145.  
  4146. 879
  4147. 00:51:25,290 --> 00:51:30,291
  4148. you have all the components
  4149. for the cell, and yet no life.
  4150.  
  4151. 880
  4152. 00:51:31,424 --> 00:51:33,088
  4153. They will say, "That's
  4154. an origin of life issue
  4155.  
  4156. 881
  4157. 00:51:33,090 --> 00:51:34,789
  4158. "and I'm not gonna
  4159. deal with that."
  4160.  
  4161. 882
  4162. 00:51:34,791 --> 00:51:36,789
  4163. But you have to deal with
  4164. it, because there is no point
  4165.  
  4166. 883
  4167. 00:51:36,791 --> 00:51:38,389
  4168. in dealing with any
  4169. of these other things
  4170.  
  4171. 884
  4172. 00:51:38,391 --> 00:51:41,488
  4173. if you cannot even get an
  4174. organism in the first place.
  4175.  
  4176. 885
  4177. 00:51:41,490 --> 00:51:43,089
  4178. The problems are exponential.
  4179.  
  4180. 886
  4181. 00:51:43,091 --> 00:51:45,355
  4182. People in the field
  4183. actually know this,
  4184.  
  4185. 887
  4186. 00:51:45,357 --> 00:51:47,821
  4187. but go along with it
  4188. anyway because, well,
  4189.  
  4190. 888
  4191. 00:51:47,823 --> 00:51:50,622
  4192. after all, the other
  4193. disciplines of science
  4194.  
  4195. 889
  4196. 00:51:50,624 --> 00:51:52,489
  4197. are where the real proof is.
  4198.  
  4199. 890
  4200. 00:51:52,491 --> 00:51:55,222
  4201. So, the geologists think
  4202. that the real proof
  4203.  
  4204. 891
  4205. 00:51:55,224 --> 00:51:56,687
  4206. is with the paleontologists.
  4207.  
  4208. 892
  4209. 00:51:56,689 --> 00:51:59,488
  4210. The fossil-studiers think the
  4211. geophysicists have the proof.
  4212.  
  4213. 893
  4214. 00:51:59,490 --> 00:52:02,121
  4215. The geophysicists think
  4216. it's the astrophysicists
  4217.  
  4218. 894
  4219. 00:52:02,123 --> 00:52:03,089
  4220. that have the proof.
  4221.  
  4222. 895
  4223. 00:52:03,091 --> 00:52:04,488
  4224. Everyone gets to the airport
  4225.  
  4226. 896
  4227. 00:52:04,490 --> 00:52:06,356
  4228. and thinks that somebody
  4229. else brought the tickets!
  4230.  
  4231. 897
  4232. 00:52:06,358 --> 00:52:08,555
  4233. They would never do this in
  4234. any other area of their lives.
  4235.  
  4236. 898
  4237. 00:52:08,557 --> 00:52:11,556
  4238. They are denying the obvious
  4239.  
  4240. 899
  4241. 00:52:11,558 --> 00:52:14,754
  4242. because of their starting
  4243. point that there is no God.
  4244.  
  4245. 900
  4246. 00:52:14,756 --> 00:52:17,555
  4247. A lot of people are
  4248. enticed by this idea
  4249.  
  4250. 901
  4251. 00:52:17,557 --> 00:52:20,088
  4252. because it takes God
  4253. out of the picture.
  4254.  
  4255. 902
  4256. 00:52:20,090 --> 00:52:23,422
  4257. Here's another way in which
  4258. young people are being conned.
  4259.  
  4260. 903
  4261. 00:52:23,424 --> 00:52:25,422
  4262. When they read their textbooks
  4263.  
  4264. 904
  4265. 00:52:25,424 --> 00:52:28,222
  4266. and it's talking about
  4267. changes in finches' beaks
  4268.  
  4269. 905
  4270. 00:52:28,224 --> 00:52:31,255
  4271. or changes you see in dogs,
  4272. the word evolution is used.
  4273.  
  4274. 906
  4275. 00:52:31,257 --> 00:52:33,389
  4276. But then the word
  4277. evolution is also used
  4278.  
  4279. 907
  4280. 00:52:33,391 --> 00:52:37,156
  4281. for molecules to man, so
  4282. it's a bait and switch.
  4283.  
  4284. 908
  4285. 00:52:37,158 --> 00:52:38,622
  4286. Just like all the
  4287. other sequences,
  4288.  
  4289. 909
  4290. 00:52:38,624 --> 00:52:41,288
  4291. like chimps gradually
  4292. turning into humans,
  4293.  
  4294. 910
  4295. 00:52:41,290 --> 00:52:44,155
  4296. and this little Bambi-looking
  4297. thing turning into horses,
  4298.  
  4299. 911
  4300. 00:52:44,157 --> 00:52:46,222
  4301. those kinds of things
  4302. that have been used
  4303.  
  4304. 912
  4305. 00:52:46,224 --> 00:52:49,687
  4306. for evolution really don't
  4307. belong in the textbooks.
  4308.  
  4309. 913
  4310. 00:52:49,689 --> 00:52:53,755
  4311. Alan Feduccia, the head of
  4312. Biology at UNC-Chapel Hill,
  4313.  
  4314. 914
  4315. 00:52:53,757 --> 00:52:57,621
  4316. says that it will be the
  4317. paleontological embarrassment
  4318.  
  4319. 915
  4320. 00:52:57,623 --> 00:53:00,289
  4321. of the 20th century,
  4322. the idea that birds
  4323.  
  4324. 916
  4325. 00:53:00,291 --> 00:53:01,688
  4326. evolved from dinosaurs.
  4327.  
  4328. 917
  4329. 00:53:01,690 --> 00:53:03,556
  4330. They are not a related
  4331. lineage at all.
  4332.  
  4333. 918
  4334. 00:53:03,558 --> 00:53:05,821
  4335. I get the question of
  4336. dinosaurs all the time.
  4337.  
  4338. 919
  4339. 00:53:05,823 --> 00:53:07,556
  4340. Consider dragons.
  4341.  
  4342. 920
  4343. 00:53:07,558 --> 00:53:10,089
  4344. We see dragon legends in
  4345. cultures all over the world.
  4346.  
  4347. 921
  4348. 00:53:10,091 --> 00:53:12,555
  4349. We find petroglyphs, cave
  4350. drawings and etchings,
  4351.  
  4352. 922
  4353. 00:53:12,557 --> 00:53:15,156
  4354. and many of these
  4355. are images of dragons
  4356.  
  4357. 923
  4358. 00:53:15,158 --> 00:53:17,423
  4359. and creatures that we
  4360. would call dinosaurs today.
  4361.  
  4362. 924
  4363. 00:53:17,425 --> 00:53:20,423
  4364. The word dinosaur
  4365. didn't exist until 1841.
  4366.  
  4367. 925
  4368. 00:53:20,425 --> 00:53:24,155
  4369. So before 1841, very
  4370. often the word dragon
  4371.  
  4372. 926
  4373. 00:53:24,157 --> 00:53:26,055
  4374. would have been used.
  4375.  
  4376. 927
  4377. 00:53:26,057 --> 00:53:27,754
  4378. Dragon is more of
  4379. an overarching term.
  4380.  
  4381. 928
  4382. 00:53:27,756 --> 00:53:30,288
  4383. It would include flying
  4384. reptiles and sea reptiles,
  4385.  
  4386. 929
  4387. 00:53:30,290 --> 00:53:31,822
  4388. as well as things
  4389. like dinosaurs.
  4390.  
  4391. 930
  4392. 00:53:31,824 --> 00:53:34,088
  4393. Now when it comes to
  4394. evidence of dinosaurs
  4395.  
  4396. 931
  4397. 00:53:34,090 --> 00:53:36,222
  4398. and man living at the same time,
  4399.  
  4400. 932
  4401. 00:53:36,224 --> 00:53:38,222
  4402. believe it or not we
  4403. have an immense amount.
  4404.  
  4405. 933
  4406. 00:53:38,224 --> 00:53:39,755
  4407. When we look at ancient histories
  4408. from various cultures...
  4409.  
  4410. 934
  4411. 00:53:39,757 --> 00:53:41,754
  4412. We get very
  4413. detailed descriptions,
  4414.  
  4415. 935
  4416. 00:53:41,756 --> 00:53:44,621
  4417. those are creatures that
  4418. today, in our modern world,
  4419.  
  4420. 936
  4421. 00:53:44,623 --> 00:53:46,156
  4422. we would call dinosaurs.
  4423.  
  4424. 937
  4425. 00:53:46,158 --> 00:53:49,122
  4426. In Genesis,
  4427. we're told that on day six,
  4428.  
  4429. 938
  4430. 00:53:49,124 --> 00:53:51,222
  4431. God created the
  4432. beasts of the earth
  4433.  
  4434. 939
  4435. 00:53:51,224 --> 00:53:54,721
  4436. and everything that
  4437. creepeth upon the earth.
  4438.  
  4439. 940
  4440. 00:53:54,723 --> 00:53:58,289
  4441. This would of course
  4442. include dinosaurs.
  4443.  
  4444. 941
  4445. 00:53:58,291 --> 00:54:02,356
  4446. In the past, dinosaurs were
  4447. simply known as dragons.
  4448.  
  4449. 942
  4450. 00:54:02,358 --> 00:54:05,056
  4451. Even as late as the early 1900s,
  4452.  
  4453. 943
  4454. 00:54:05,058 --> 00:54:09,055
  4455. dictionaries described
  4456. dragons as now rare
  4457.  
  4458. 944
  4459. 00:54:09,057 --> 00:54:11,088
  4460. and a huge serpent.
  4461.  
  4462. 945
  4463. 00:54:11,090 --> 00:54:14,288
  4464. Not only do we find
  4465. dinosaurs in cave drawings,
  4466.  
  4467. 946
  4468. 00:54:14,290 --> 00:54:17,422
  4469. carvings of figurines, and
  4470. even in cultural legends
  4471.  
  4472. 947
  4473. 00:54:17,424 --> 00:54:19,754
  4474. from the not-too-distant past,
  4475.  
  4476. 948
  4477. 00:54:19,756 --> 00:54:23,422
  4478. but the Bible speaks
  4479. descriptively of creatures
  4480.  
  4481. 949
  4482. 00:54:23,424 --> 00:54:25,622
  4483. that sound like dinosaurs.
  4484.  
  4485. 950
  4486. 00:54:25,624 --> 00:54:30,624
  4487. In the book of Job, God tells
  4488. Job to behold the behemoth,
  4489.  
  4490. 951
  4491. 00:54:31,489 --> 00:54:33,487
  4492. a creature Job would have known.
  4493.  
  4494. 952
  4495. 00:54:33,489 --> 00:54:36,821
  4496. In fact, God
  4497. specifically says that
  4498.  
  4499. 953
  4500. 00:54:36,823 --> 00:54:40,554
  4501. he made the behemoth
  4502. along with mankind,
  4503.  
  4504. 954
  4505. 00:54:40,556 --> 00:54:43,155
  4506. and describes it
  4507. as having a tail
  4508.  
  4509. 955
  4510. 00:54:43,157 --> 00:54:48,158
  4511. that sways like a cedar tree,
  4512. and bones as strong as iron.
  4513.  
  4514. 956
  4515. 00:54:49,524 --> 00:54:52,522
  4516. He's so big that a raging
  4517. river is nothing to him.
  4518.  
  4519. 957
  4520. 00:54:52,524 --> 00:54:54,788
  4521. The description of
  4522. this massive creature
  4523.  
  4524. 958
  4525. 00:54:54,790 --> 00:54:57,622
  4526. fits the huge sauropod dinosaurs
  4527.  
  4528. 959
  4529. 00:54:57,624 --> 00:54:59,722
  4530. we know from the fossil record.
  4531.  
  4532. 960
  4533. 00:54:59,724 --> 00:55:02,189
  4534. The Bible describes
  4535. in great detail
  4536.  
  4537. 961
  4538. 00:55:02,191 --> 00:55:05,222
  4539. a creature that sounds
  4540. just like a dinosaur,
  4541.  
  4542. 962
  4543. 00:55:05,224 --> 00:55:08,188
  4544. thousands of years
  4545. before paleontologists
  4546.  
  4547. 963
  4548. 00:55:08,190 --> 00:55:12,157
  4549. would rediscover
  4550. and rename them.
  4551.  
  4552. 964
  4553. 00:55:13,489 --> 00:55:16,088
  4554. My daughter, came back
  4555. from her kindergarten class,
  4556.  
  4557. 965
  4558. 00:55:16,090 --> 00:55:17,622
  4559. when she was younger,
  4560. she brought home a book
  4561.  
  4562. 966
  4563. 00:55:17,624 --> 00:55:20,822
  4564. that said that dinosaurs
  4565. lived 100 million years ago.
  4566.  
  4567. 967
  4568. 00:55:20,824 --> 00:55:23,289
  4569. That is just an assertion,
  4570. they are just saying it.
  4571.  
  4572. 968
  4573. 00:55:23,291 --> 00:55:25,289
  4574. They didn't observe this,
  4575. you can't repeat this.
  4576.  
  4577. 969
  4578. 00:55:25,291 --> 00:55:27,654
  4579. It is man-fallible,
  4580. imperfect men,
  4581.  
  4582. 970
  4583. 00:55:27,656 --> 00:55:29,822
  4584. who separate man from dinosaurs
  4585.  
  4586. 971
  4587. 00:55:29,824 --> 00:55:31,122
  4588. by somewhere in the
  4589. neighborhood of about
  4590.  
  4591. 972
  4592. 00:55:31,124 --> 00:55:32,356
  4593. 65 million years now.
  4594.  
  4595. 973
  4596. 00:55:32,358 --> 00:55:34,155
  4597. You either start with
  4598. what God has to say
  4599.  
  4600. 974
  4601. 00:55:34,157 --> 00:55:35,421
  4602. or with what man has to say.
  4603.  
  4604. 975
  4605. 00:55:35,423 --> 00:55:37,156
  4606. God, who has always been there,
  4607.  
  4608. 976
  4609. 00:55:37,158 --> 00:55:39,754
  4610. he is perfect and infallible
  4611. and he's the one who says...
  4612.  
  4613. 977
  4614. 00:55:39,756 --> 00:55:42,288
  4615. That people and dinosaurs
  4616. walked the Earth together.
  4617.  
  4618. 978
  4619. 00:55:42,290 --> 00:55:44,421
  4620. And a lot of people
  4621. kind of scoff at that,
  4622.  
  4623. 979
  4624. 00:55:44,423 --> 00:55:45,356
  4625. but if you look back in history,
  4626.  
  4627. 980
  4628. 00:55:45,358 --> 00:55:47,688
  4629. nobody scoffed at that
  4630. until recent times
  4631.  
  4632. 981
  4633. 00:55:47,690 --> 00:55:50,555
  4634. when people started to buy
  4635. into this concept of millions
  4636.  
  4637. 982
  4638. 00:55:50,557 --> 00:55:51,755
  4639. and billions of years.
  4640.  
  4641. 983
  4642. 00:55:51,757 --> 00:55:53,388
  4643. One of the things
  4644. that really helps
  4645.  
  4646. 984
  4647. 00:55:53,390 --> 00:55:55,821
  4648. to convince people of
  4649. the millions of years
  4650.  
  4651. 985
  4652. 00:55:55,823 --> 00:55:59,155
  4653. is that chart of the
  4654. geological column,
  4655.  
  4656. 986
  4657. 00:55:59,157 --> 00:56:00,356
  4658. where you see the rock layers
  4659.  
  4660. 987
  4661. 00:56:00,358 --> 00:56:02,355
  4662. and then you've got #
  4663. the timeline on the side
  4664.  
  4665. 988
  4666. 00:56:02,357 --> 00:56:04,221
  4667. with the millions of years.
  4668.  
  4669. 989
  4670. 00:56:04,223 --> 00:56:06,288
  4671. And then you have the
  4672. bottom-dwelling sea creatures,
  4673.  
  4674. 990
  4675. 00:56:06,290 --> 00:56:09,621
  4676. and then fish, and amphibians,
  4677. and reptiles, and dinosaurs,
  4678.  
  4679. 991
  4680. 00:56:09,623 --> 00:56:11,554
  4681. and birds, and
  4682. mammals, and people.
  4683.  
  4684. 992
  4685. 00:56:11,556 --> 00:56:14,688
  4686. How did that geological
  4687. column get developed?
  4688.  
  4689. 993
  4690. 00:56:14,690 --> 00:56:17,421
  4691. It was back in the late 18th
  4692. and early 19th centuries
  4693.  
  4694. 994
  4695. 00:56:17,423 --> 00:56:20,755
  4696. that they started to use
  4697. the fossils, certain fossils
  4698.  
  4699. 995
  4700. 00:56:20,757 --> 00:56:24,156
  4701. called index fossils,
  4702. to date a rock layer.
  4703.  
  4704. 996
  4705. 00:56:24,158 --> 00:56:25,554
  4706. "Oh, well that rock
  4707. layer is this old
  4708.  
  4709. 997
  4710. 00:56:25,556 --> 00:56:27,554
  4711. "because we know
  4712. that the rock layers
  4713.  
  4714. 998
  4715. 00:56:27,556 --> 00:56:29,621
  4716. "that have those
  4717. fossils are this old."
  4718.  
  4719. 999
  4720. 00:56:29,623 --> 00:56:32,222
  4721. You might ask, "How did they
  4722. know how old the fossils were?"
  4723.  
  4724. 1000
  4725. 00:56:32,224 --> 00:56:33,521
  4726. Good question.
  4727.  
  4728. 1001
  4729. 00:56:33,523 --> 00:56:34,721
  4730. They didn't.
  4731.  
  4732. 1002
  4733. 00:56:34,723 --> 00:56:36,822
  4734. They were making an assumption
  4735. about the history of life.
  4736.  
  4737. 1003
  4738. 00:56:36,824 --> 00:56:40,354
  4739. That assumption is just invalid.
  4740.  
  4741. 1004
  4742. 00:56:40,356 --> 00:56:42,755
  4743. Remember this?
  4744.  
  4745. 1005
  4746. 00:56:42,757 --> 00:56:44,555
  4747. The geologic column.
  4748.  
  4749. 1006
  4750. 00:56:44,557 --> 00:56:46,821
  4751. You were probably
  4752. taught in school
  4753.  
  4754. 1007
  4755. 00:56:46,823 --> 00:56:49,421
  4756. that each layer represents
  4757. a different period of time,
  4758.  
  4759. 1008
  4760. 00:56:49,423 --> 00:56:53,354
  4761. and was deposited over
  4762. millions of years.
  4763.  
  4764. 1009
  4765. 00:56:53,356 --> 00:56:56,788
  4766. In reality, each layer
  4767. is simply showing
  4768.  
  4769. 1010
  4770. 00:56:56,790 --> 00:56:59,488
  4771. the order of how
  4772. things were buried.
  4773.  
  4774. 1011
  4775. 00:56:59,490 --> 00:57:02,121
  4776. Both land and sea
  4777. creatures alike
  4778.  
  4779. 1012
  4780. 00:57:02,123 --> 00:57:05,088
  4781. are found throughout
  4782. the geologic column.
  4783.  
  4784. 1013
  4785. 00:57:05,090 --> 00:57:07,554
  4786. Sea creatures are
  4787. found from the lowest
  4788.  
  4789. 1014
  4790. 00:57:07,556 --> 00:57:11,121
  4791. to the highest layers and
  4792. even on top of mountains.
  4793.  
  4794. 1015
  4795. 00:57:11,123 --> 00:57:15,421
  4796. In fact, 75% of the
  4797. Earth's land surface
  4798.  
  4799. 1016
  4800. 00:57:15,423 --> 00:57:18,089
  4801. is made of sedimentary layers
  4802.  
  4803. 1017
  4804. 00:57:18,091 --> 00:57:21,321
  4805. which are rock layers
  4806. formed in water.
  4807.  
  4808. 1018
  4809. 00:57:21,323 --> 00:57:23,822
  4810. Geologists also
  4811. confess that the world
  4812.  
  4813. 1019
  4814. 00:57:23,824 --> 00:57:26,555
  4815. is riddled with
  4816. massively eroded features
  4817.  
  4818. 1020
  4819. 00:57:26,557 --> 00:57:29,288
  4820. like the Grand
  4821. Canyon in America,
  4822.  
  4823. 1021
  4824. 00:57:29,290 --> 00:57:31,387
  4825. the Blyde River Canyon
  4826. in South Africa,
  4827.  
  4828. 1022
  4829. 00:57:31,389 --> 00:57:33,789
  4830. and the Capertee
  4831. Valley in Australia.
  4832.  
  4833. 1023
  4834. 00:57:33,791 --> 00:57:38,992
  4835. And yet, they still refuse to
  4836. acknowledge a worldwide flood.
  4837.  
  4838. 1024
  4839. 00:57:40,289 --> 00:57:42,754
  4840. Remember those prophetic
  4841. verses in the book of Peter?
  4842.  
  4843. 1025
  4844. 00:57:42,756 --> 00:57:45,621
  4845. "There shall come in
  4846. the last days scoffers
  4847.  
  4848. 1026
  4849. 00:57:45,623 --> 00:57:49,421
  4850. "who are willingly
  4851. ignorant that the Earth,
  4852.  
  4853. 1027
  4854. 00:57:49,423 --> 00:57:52,355
  4855. "being overflowed
  4856. with water, perished."
  4857.  
  4858. 1028
  4859. 00:57:52,357 --> 00:57:56,156
  4860. 2,000 years ago, Peter warned us
  4861.  
  4862. 1029
  4863. 00:57:56,158 --> 00:58:00,158
  4864. this rejection of
  4865. truth would happen.
  4866.  
  4867. 1030
  4868. 00:58:01,589 --> 00:58:04,788
  4869. Fossils are actually
  4870. not the evidence
  4871.  
  4872. 1031
  4873. 00:58:04,790 --> 00:58:06,754
  4874. of the history of life.
  4875.  
  4876. 1032
  4877. 00:58:06,756 --> 00:58:08,554
  4878. It's the evidence of the death
  4879.  
  4880. 1033
  4881. 00:58:08,556 --> 00:58:11,089
  4882. of all life during Noah's flood,
  4883.  
  4884. 1034
  4885. 00:58:11,091 --> 00:58:12,788
  4886. and how all those
  4887. things got buried.
  4888.  
  4889. 1035
  4890. 00:58:12,790 --> 00:58:15,488
  4891. There are sea creatures all the
  4892. way through the rock record.
  4893.  
  4894. 1036
  4895. 00:58:15,490 --> 00:58:17,554
  4896. And we find sea
  4897. creatures on the tops of
  4898.  
  4899. 1037
  4900. 00:58:17,556 --> 00:58:19,422
  4901. all of our highest mountains!
  4902.  
  4903. 1038
  4904. 00:58:19,424 --> 00:58:21,822
  4905. There are sea creatures on
  4906. the tops of the Himalayas,
  4907.  
  4908. 1039
  4909. 00:58:21,824 --> 00:58:23,822
  4910. the Alps, the
  4911. Andes, the Rockies.
  4912.  
  4913. 1040
  4914. 00:58:23,824 --> 00:58:25,221
  4915. How did they get up there?
  4916.  
  4917. 1041
  4918. 00:58:25,223 --> 00:58:27,156
  4919. Creatures that don't
  4920. have any hard parts.
  4921.  
  4922. 1042
  4923. 00:58:27,158 --> 00:58:28,055
  4924. Fossil worms.
  4925.  
  4926. 1043
  4927. 00:58:28,057 --> 00:58:30,355
  4928. Fossil animal manure.
  4929.  
  4930. 1044
  4931. 00:58:30,357 --> 00:58:32,688
  4932. That's not gonna be
  4933. fossilized slowly
  4934.  
  4935. 1045
  4936. 00:58:32,690 --> 00:58:34,688
  4937. over hundreds or
  4938. thousands of years.
  4939.  
  4940. 1046
  4941. 00:58:34,690 --> 00:58:37,222
  4942. Those are some of the biblical
  4943. and scientific reasons
  4944.  
  4945. 1047
  4946. 00:58:37,224 --> 00:58:40,221
  4947. why we should not accept
  4948. those millions of years.
  4949.  
  4950. 1048
  4951. 00:58:40,223 --> 00:58:43,156
  4952. A lot of people think
  4953. that the biblical chronology
  4954.  
  4955. 1049
  4956. 00:58:43,158 --> 00:58:45,122
  4957. couldn't be true
  4958. because the Bible says
  4959.  
  4960. 1050
  4961. 00:58:45,124 --> 00:58:46,788
  4962. that the Earth is
  4963. 6,000 years old.
  4964.  
  4965. 1051
  4966. 00:58:46,790 --> 00:58:48,554
  4967. That is very, very different
  4968.  
  4969. 1052
  4970. 00:58:48,556 --> 00:58:50,155
  4971. than saying that the
  4972. Earth is four and a half
  4973.  
  4974. 1053
  4975. 00:58:50,157 --> 00:58:51,354
  4976. billion years old.
  4977.  
  4978. 1054
  4979. 00:58:51,356 --> 00:58:52,755
  4980. How do we know that it's
  4981. four and a half billion years?
  4982.  
  4983. 1055
  4984. 00:58:52,757 --> 00:58:54,688
  4985. Because it's only ever stated.
  4986.  
  4987. 1056
  4988. 00:58:54,690 --> 00:58:55,687
  4989. "It's four and a
  4990. half billion years.
  4991.  
  4992. 1057
  4993. 00:58:55,689 --> 00:58:57,221
  4994. "We know that."
  4995.  
  4996. 1058
  4997. 00:58:57,223 --> 00:58:58,089
  4998. Well, how do you know that?
  4999.  
  5000. 1059
  5001. 00:58:58,091 --> 00:58:59,221
  5002. "Radioactive dating."
  5003.  
  5004. 1060
  5005. 00:58:59,223 --> 00:59:01,089
  5006. A lot of people think
  5007. that carbon dating
  5008.  
  5009. 1061
  5010. 00:59:01,091 --> 00:59:03,220
  5011. proves that the rocks are
  5012. millions of years old.
  5013.  
  5014. 1062
  5015. 00:59:03,222 --> 00:59:06,221
  5016. Carbon dating is never
  5017. used to date the rocks.
  5018.  
  5019. 1063
  5020. 00:59:06,223 --> 00:59:08,822
  5021. It is only used to date
  5022. former living things.
  5023.  
  5024. 1064
  5025. 00:59:08,824 --> 00:59:11,421
  5026. No evolutionist uses carbon-14
  5027.  
  5028. 1065
  5029. 00:59:11,423 --> 00:59:13,555
  5030. because even if it worked
  5031. the way they thought it did,
  5032.  
  5033. 1066
  5034. 00:59:13,557 --> 00:59:17,122
  5035. it can only go out
  5036. to 110,000 years max
  5037.  
  5038. 1067
  5039. 00:59:17,124 --> 00:59:20,156
  5040. even using the new accelerator
  5041. mass spectrometer method.
  5042.  
  5043. 1068
  5044. 00:59:20,158 --> 00:59:24,522
  5045. The half-life of carbon-14
  5046. is so short, only 5,730 years,
  5047.  
  5048. 1069
  5049. 00:59:24,524 --> 00:59:27,488
  5050. that you should not
  5051. find any carbon-14
  5052.  
  5053. 1070
  5054. 00:59:27,490 --> 00:59:30,721
  5055. in anything older
  5056. than 100,000 years,
  5057.  
  5058. 1071
  5059. 00:59:30,723 --> 00:59:33,155
  5060. which should not have even
  5061. one atom that we could detect.
  5062.  
  5063. 1072
  5064. 00:59:33,157 --> 00:59:35,587
  5065. The fact that people
  5066. are routinely finding
  5067.  
  5068. 1073
  5069. 00:59:35,589 --> 00:59:38,588
  5070. significant levels of C-14 in
  5071. all these different fossils
  5072.  
  5073. 1074
  5074. 00:59:38,590 --> 00:59:42,488
  5075. indicates something wrong
  5076. with the dating methods.
  5077.  
  5078. 1075
  5079. 00:59:42,490 --> 00:59:45,687
  5080. The half-life, the
  5081. decay rate, of carbon-14
  5082.  
  5083. 1076
  5084. 00:59:45,689 --> 00:59:49,622
  5085. is very short, so it's never
  5086. used to date the rocks.
  5087.  
  5088. 1077
  5089. 00:59:49,624 --> 00:59:51,154
  5090. It's the other methods.
  5091.  
  5092. 1078
  5093. 00:59:51,156 --> 00:59:54,089
  5094. Uranium changing into
  5095. lead, potassium into argon,
  5096.  
  5097. 1079
  5098. 00:59:54,091 --> 00:59:55,422
  5099. rubidium into strontium,
  5100.  
  5101. 1080
  5102. 00:59:55,424 --> 00:59:57,688
  5103. and they have really
  5104. long half-lives.
  5105.  
  5106. 1081
  5107. 00:59:57,690 --> 01:00:00,488
  5108. All of those,
  5109. including carbon-14,
  5110.  
  5111. 1082
  5112. 01:00:00,490 --> 01:00:02,288
  5113. depend on four
  5114. basic assumptions.
  5115.  
  5116. 1083
  5117. 01:00:02,290 --> 01:00:04,687
  5118. One, you somehow have
  5119. to be able to estimate
  5120.  
  5121. 1084
  5122. 01:00:04,689 --> 01:00:07,287
  5123. the original amount
  5124. of the parent isotope.
  5125.  
  5126. 1085
  5127. 01:00:07,289 --> 01:00:10,422
  5128. Two, you have to somehow
  5129. calculate the original amount
  5130.  
  5131. 1086
  5132. 01:00:10,424 --> 01:00:12,055
  5133. of the daughter isotope.
  5134.  
  5135. 1087
  5136. 01:00:12,057 --> 01:00:14,287
  5137. There are little
  5138. detective-forensic ways
  5139.  
  5140. 1088
  5141. 01:00:14,289 --> 01:00:17,122
  5142. but no truly scientific
  5143. method, rigorous ways
  5144.  
  5145. 1089
  5146. 01:00:17,124 --> 01:00:21,089
  5147. to actually determine the
  5148. beginning of that rock.
  5149.  
  5150. 1090
  5151. 01:00:21,091 --> 01:00:23,688
  5152. They also have to assume
  5153. that the rate at which,
  5154.  
  5155. 1091
  5156. 01:00:23,690 --> 01:00:26,521
  5157. for example, uranium
  5158. decays into lead,
  5159.  
  5160. 1092
  5161. 01:00:26,523 --> 01:00:28,487
  5162. has always been constant.
  5163.  
  5164. 1093
  5165. 01:00:28,489 --> 01:00:31,254
  5166. But they have only been
  5167. measuring the decay rates
  5168.  
  5169. 1094
  5170. 01:00:31,256 --> 01:00:33,288
  5171. for 100 years.
  5172.  
  5173. 1095
  5174. 01:00:33,290 --> 01:00:35,487
  5175. Pressure, magnetic
  5176. fields, and heat can change
  5177.  
  5178. 1096
  5179. 01:00:35,489 --> 01:00:37,089
  5180. the decay rates.
  5181.  
  5182. 1097
  5183. 01:00:37,091 --> 01:00:39,155
  5184. Radioactive lutetium decays
  5185. nine trillion times faster
  5186.  
  5187. 1098
  5188. 01:00:39,157 --> 01:00:43,555
  5189. in the plasma state, and
  5190. evolutionists, big bang theorists,
  5191.  
  5192. 1099
  5193. 01:00:43,557 --> 01:00:45,821
  5194. believe that the whole universe
  5195. began in a plasma state.
  5196.  
  5197. 1100
  5198. 01:00:45,823 --> 01:00:47,287
  5199. And one more.
  5200.  
  5201. 1101
  5202. 01:00:47,289 --> 01:00:49,587
  5203. You have to assume that
  5204. the sample has been
  5205.  
  5206. 1102
  5207. 01:00:49,589 --> 01:00:51,487
  5208. in a closed system
  5209. the entire time.
  5210.  
  5211. 1103
  5212. 01:00:51,489 --> 01:00:54,120
  5213. Scientists who are
  5214. well-informed on this issue,
  5215.  
  5216. 1104
  5217. 01:00:54,122 --> 01:00:56,354
  5218. with PhDs in
  5219. geology and physics,
  5220.  
  5221. 1105
  5222. 01:00:56,356 --> 01:00:57,621
  5223. they say there's problems
  5224.  
  5225. 1106
  5226. 01:00:57,623 --> 01:00:59,521
  5227. with every one of
  5228. those assumptions.
  5229.  
  5230. 1107
  5231. 01:00:59,523 --> 01:01:02,154
  5232. And even if one of these
  5233. assumptions doesn't go their way,
  5234.  
  5235. 1108
  5236. 01:01:02,156 --> 01:01:05,354
  5237. then the entire possibility
  5238. of the whole thing
  5239.  
  5240. 1109
  5241. 01:01:05,356 --> 01:01:07,220
  5242. drops to zero.
  5243.  
  5244. 1110
  5245. 01:01:07,222 --> 01:01:09,555
  5246. There's no reason
  5247. to trust that these
  5248.  
  5249. 1111
  5250. 01:01:09,557 --> 01:01:11,554
  5251. are giving us the
  5252. true age of the rocks.
  5253.  
  5254. 1112
  5255. 01:01:11,556 --> 01:01:13,688
  5256. I would rather
  5257. play the lottery
  5258.  
  5259. 1113
  5260. 01:01:13,690 --> 01:01:17,621
  5261. with my life savings than
  5262. bet on something like that!
  5263.  
  5264. 1114
  5265. 01:01:17,623 --> 01:01:20,422
  5266. In 2005,
  5267. Mary Schweitzer,
  5268.  
  5269. 1115
  5270. 01:01:20,424 --> 01:01:23,155
  5271. a paleontologist
  5272. and evolutionist,
  5273.  
  5274. 1116
  5275. 01:01:23,157 --> 01:01:27,488
  5276. made the first popularized
  5277. discovery of soft tissues
  5278.  
  5279. 1117
  5280. 01:01:27,490 --> 01:01:31,154
  5281. in a dinosaur bone, which
  5282. include blood vessels and cells,
  5283.  
  5284. 1118
  5285. 01:01:31,156 --> 01:01:34,821
  5286. DNA and proteins, all
  5287. of which decay quickly.
  5288.  
  5289. 1119
  5290. 01:01:34,823 --> 01:01:36,687
  5291. Mary Schweitzer herself said,
  5292.  
  5293. 1120
  5294. 01:01:36,689 --> 01:01:39,155
  5295. "This flies in the
  5296. face of everything
  5297.  
  5298. 1121
  5299. 01:01:39,157 --> 01:01:42,621
  5300. "we understand about how
  5301. tissues and cells degrade.
  5302.  
  5303. 1122
  5304. 01:01:42,623 --> 01:01:45,354
  5305. "I can't explain
  5306. it, to be honest."
  5307.  
  5308. 1123
  5309. 01:01:45,356 --> 01:01:48,554
  5310. Mary can't explain it and
  5311. neither can her colleagues,
  5312.  
  5313. 1124
  5314. 01:01:48,556 --> 01:01:50,622
  5315. who cling to the
  5316. evolutionary paradigm.
  5317.  
  5318. 1125
  5319. 01:01:50,624 --> 01:01:52,454
  5320. To illustrate the problem,
  5321.  
  5322. 1126
  5323. 01:01:52,456 --> 01:01:54,687
  5324. let's travel back
  5325. to the early 1700s,
  5326.  
  5327. 1127
  5328. 01:01:54,689 --> 01:01:57,621
  5329. a time when biblical
  5330. catastrophism
  5331.  
  5332. 1128
  5333. 01:01:57,623 --> 01:02:00,422
  5334. was the accepted
  5335. geological view.
  5336.  
  5337. 1129
  5338. 01:02:00,424 --> 01:02:04,487
  5339. If people then found a
  5340. dinosaur bone, or dragon bone,
  5341.  
  5342. 1130
  5343. 01:02:04,489 --> 01:02:07,087
  5344. as they may have called
  5345. it, with soft tissue
  5346.  
  5347. 1131
  5348. 01:02:07,089 --> 01:02:10,088
  5349. and remnants of blood still
  5350. in it, would they be confused?
  5351.  
  5352. 1132
  5353. 01:02:10,090 --> 01:02:11,422
  5354. Of course not.
  5355.  
  5356. 1133
  5357. 01:02:11,424 --> 01:02:14,587
  5358. They would simply conclude
  5359. this was a creature
  5360.  
  5361. 1134
  5362. 01:02:14,589 --> 01:02:16,622
  5363. that died and was buried
  5364.  
  5365. 1135
  5366. 01:02:16,624 --> 01:02:18,554
  5367. during or after the flood,
  5368.  
  5369. 1136
  5370. 01:02:18,556 --> 01:02:21,088
  5371. within the past
  5372. few thousand years.
  5373.  
  5374. 1137
  5375. 01:02:21,090 --> 01:02:23,220
  5376. Now let's fast-forward to today.
  5377.  
  5378. 1138
  5379. 01:02:23,222 --> 01:02:25,754
  5380. Would people be confused
  5381. to find the same thing
  5382.  
  5383. 1139
  5384. 01:02:25,756 --> 01:02:27,355
  5385. in a dinosaur bone?
  5386.  
  5387. 1140
  5388. 01:02:27,357 --> 01:02:29,087
  5389. Of course, many people would,
  5390.  
  5391. 1141
  5392. 01:02:29,089 --> 01:02:31,288
  5393. because the evidence we find
  5394.  
  5395. 1142
  5396. 01:02:31,290 --> 01:02:34,154
  5397. doesn't match the
  5398. evolutionary timescale
  5399.  
  5400. 1143
  5401. 01:02:34,156 --> 01:02:37,755
  5402. we've been conditioned
  5403. to believe.
  5404.  
  5405. 1144
  5406. 01:02:37,757 --> 01:02:40,154
  5407. Many textbooks say
  5408. that the peppered moth,
  5409.  
  5410. 1145
  5411. 01:02:40,156 --> 01:02:43,154
  5412. industrial melanism in
  5413. England, is evolution.
  5414.  
  5415. 1146
  5416. 01:02:43,156 --> 01:02:45,388
  5417. Well if that's all that
  5418. evolution is, I believe!
  5419.  
  5420. 1147
  5421. 01:02:45,390 --> 01:02:48,421
  5422. The dark-colored peppered
  5423. moths were more camouflaged
  5424.  
  5425. 1148
  5426. 01:02:48,423 --> 01:02:51,087
  5427. than the light-colored
  5428. peppered moths.
  5429.  
  5430. 1149
  5431. 01:02:51,089 --> 01:02:54,488
  5432. As a result, the birds could
  5433. see them and eat them for lunch
  5434.  
  5435. 1150
  5436. 01:02:54,490 --> 01:02:55,588
  5437. a lot easier.
  5438.  
  5439. 1151
  5440. 01:02:55,590 --> 01:02:57,588
  5441. It's not an evolutionary
  5442. event at all.
  5443.  
  5444. 1152
  5445. 01:02:57,590 --> 01:02:59,488
  5446. It's a natural selection event.
  5447.  
  5448. 1153
  5449. 01:02:59,490 --> 01:03:01,588
  5450. Natural selection means
  5451. to pick or choose,
  5452.  
  5453. 1154
  5454. 01:03:01,590 --> 01:03:03,754
  5455. to select from what
  5456. is already there,
  5457.  
  5458. 1155
  5459. 01:03:03,756 --> 01:03:05,154
  5460. traits that were already there,
  5461.  
  5462. 1156
  5463. 01:03:05,156 --> 01:03:06,622
  5464. genetic information
  5465. that was already there.
  5466.  
  5467. 1157
  5468. 01:03:06,624 --> 01:03:10,220
  5469. This process will never get
  5470. you from copepod sort of things
  5471.  
  5472. 1158
  5473. 01:03:10,222 --> 01:03:12,220
  5474. in the ocean turning into moths.
  5475.  
  5476. 1159
  5477. 01:03:12,222 --> 01:03:15,121
  5478. It will never get you from
  5479. monkeys turning into people.
  5480.  
  5481. 1160
  5482. 01:03:15,123 --> 01:03:17,754
  5483. This process can't make
  5484. one step in that direction.
  5485.  
  5486. 1161
  5487. 01:03:17,756 --> 01:03:20,221
  5488. Natural selection may
  5489. be able to explain
  5490.  
  5491. 1162
  5492. 01:03:20,223 --> 01:03:21,622
  5493. the survival of the fittest,
  5494.  
  5495. 1163
  5496. 01:03:21,624 --> 01:03:25,221
  5497. but it cannot explain the
  5498. arrival of the fittest.
  5499.  
  5500. 1164
  5501. 01:03:25,223 --> 01:03:27,288
  5502. How did we get moths
  5503. in the first place
  5504.  
  5505. 1165
  5506. 01:03:27,290 --> 01:03:30,220
  5507. is the question evolution
  5508. claims to answer
  5509.  
  5510. 1166
  5511. 01:03:30,222 --> 01:03:31,755
  5512. and cannot and does not.
  5513.  
  5514. 1167
  5515. 01:03:31,757 --> 01:03:35,555
  5516. Instead, they just go, "Look
  5517. at how the colors shifted."
  5518.  
  5519. 1168
  5520. 01:03:35,557 --> 01:03:37,555
  5521. Before the magic of evolution,
  5522.  
  5523. 1169
  5524. 01:03:37,557 --> 01:03:39,522
  5525. there were white
  5526. moths and black moths.
  5527.  
  5528. 1170
  5529. 01:03:39,524 --> 01:03:41,488
  5530. After the magic of evolution,
  5531.  
  5532. 1171
  5533. 01:03:41,490 --> 01:03:43,221
  5534. there were white
  5535. moths and black moths.
  5536.  
  5537. 1172
  5538. 01:03:43,223 --> 01:03:45,621
  5539. That would happen
  5540. if Darwin was wrong,
  5541.  
  5542. 1173
  5543. 01:03:45,623 --> 01:03:48,555
  5544. it doesn't have anything
  5545. to do with Darwin's theory.
  5546.  
  5547. 1174
  5548. 01:03:48,557 --> 01:03:50,220
  5549. The types of changes
  5550. that we're seeing
  5551.  
  5552. 1175
  5553. 01:03:50,222 --> 01:03:52,087
  5554. that lead to
  5555. variation with kinds
  5556.  
  5557. 1176
  5558. 01:03:52,089 --> 01:03:55,755
  5559. are not the types of changes
  5560. that are required by evolution.
  5561.  
  5562. 1177
  5563. 01:03:55,757 --> 01:03:58,087
  5564. There is variation
  5565. within the kind,
  5566.  
  5567. 1178
  5568. 01:03:58,089 --> 01:04:01,154
  5569. but not the evolution of one
  5570. kind becoming another kind.
  5571.  
  5572. 1179
  5573. 01:04:01,156 --> 01:04:04,155
  5574. In the creation account,
  5575. it says that God created,
  5576.  
  5577. 1180
  5578. 01:04:04,157 --> 01:04:07,288
  5579. according to their
  5580. kind, after their kind,
  5581.  
  5582. 1181
  5583. 01:04:07,290 --> 01:04:09,554
  5584. not through
  5585. evolutionary processes.
  5586.  
  5587. 1182
  5588. 01:04:09,556 --> 01:04:12,254
  5589. You don't have one kind
  5590. developing into another kind.
  5591.  
  5592. 1183
  5593. 01:04:12,256 --> 01:04:14,422
  5594. They are all created
  5595. according to their kind.
  5596.  
  5597. 1184
  5598. 01:04:14,424 --> 01:04:16,087
  5599. So even though
  5600. you get variety,
  5601.  
  5602. 1185
  5603. 01:04:16,089 --> 01:04:18,221
  5604. they are not changing
  5605. into other things.
  5606.  
  5607. 1186
  5608. 01:04:18,223 --> 01:04:21,488
  5609. Bacteria are not changing
  5610. into more complex creatures.
  5611.  
  5612. 1187
  5613. 01:04:21,490 --> 01:04:23,687
  5614. Yes, you can have great
  5615. variation within a kind.
  5616.  
  5617. 1188
  5618. 01:04:23,689 --> 01:04:25,388
  5619. You can get different
  5620. species forming,
  5621.  
  5622. 1189
  5623. 01:04:25,390 --> 01:04:27,288
  5624. which is what Darwin really saw.
  5625.  
  5626. 1190
  5627. 01:04:27,290 --> 01:04:28,622
  5628. But there are limits.
  5629.  
  5630. 1191
  5631. 01:04:28,624 --> 01:04:31,621
  5632. There are no mechanisms
  5633. there at all in genetics
  5634.  
  5635. 1192
  5636. 01:04:31,623 --> 01:04:33,722
  5637. to add in new information
  5638. that never existed
  5639.  
  5640. 1193
  5641. 01:04:33,724 --> 01:04:36,355
  5642. to change that into a
  5643. totally different kind.
  5644.  
  5645. 1194
  5646. 01:04:36,357 --> 01:04:37,821
  5647. Dogs always remain dogs.
  5648.  
  5649. 1195
  5650. 01:04:37,823 --> 01:04:39,622
  5651. Cats always remain cats.
  5652.  
  5653. 1196
  5654. 01:04:39,624 --> 01:04:42,055
  5655. There is nothing in
  5656. observational science
  5657.  
  5658. 1197
  5659. 01:04:42,057 --> 01:04:43,487
  5660. to contradict that.
  5661.  
  5662. 1198
  5663. 01:04:43,489 --> 01:04:46,220
  5664. Every animal will bring
  5665. forth after its own kind.
  5666.  
  5667. 1199
  5668. 01:04:46,222 --> 01:04:48,654
  5669. You can observe that in
  5670. the existing creation
  5671.  
  5672. 1200
  5673. 01:04:48,656 --> 01:04:50,388
  5674. and in the fossil record.
  5675.  
  5676. 1201
  5677. 01:04:50,390 --> 01:04:54,288
  5678. Genesis passes the
  5679. scientific method.
  5680.  
  5681. 1202
  5682. 01:04:54,290 --> 01:04:55,821
  5683. evolution doesn't.
  5684.  
  5685. 1203
  5686. 01:04:55,823 --> 01:04:57,388
  5687. The fact of the matter is
  5688.  
  5689. 1204
  5690. 01:04:57,390 --> 01:05:00,088
  5691. the information is stronger
  5692. than it has ever been.
  5693.  
  5694. 1205
  5695. 01:05:00,090 --> 01:05:02,421
  5696. In the past five years there
  5697. has been a quantum jump
  5698.  
  5699. 1206
  5700. 01:05:02,423 --> 01:05:04,588
  5701. in the data, the new discoveries
  5702.  
  5703. 1207
  5704. 01:05:04,590 --> 01:05:07,688
  5705. that actually go against
  5706. evolutionary thinking
  5707.  
  5708. 1208
  5709. 01:05:07,690 --> 01:05:09,421
  5710. and make it more and
  5711. more preposterous,
  5712.  
  5713. 1209
  5714. 01:05:09,423 --> 01:05:12,221
  5715. against evolutionary theory
  5716. and actually make it untrue.
  5717.  
  5718. 1210
  5719. 01:05:12,223 --> 01:05:15,488
  5720. The creationists are finding
  5721. more and more ammunition
  5722.  
  5723. 1211
  5724. 01:05:15,490 --> 01:05:18,088
  5725. in the new scientific data,
  5726.  
  5727. 1212
  5728. 01:05:18,090 --> 01:05:20,354
  5729. not in theories in the data,
  5730.  
  5731. 1213
  5732. 01:05:20,356 --> 01:05:23,221
  5733. which prompted
  5734. Eugenie Scott to say,
  5735.  
  5736. 1214
  5737. 01:05:23,223 --> 01:05:25,087
  5738. "Facts are a dime a dozen,
  5739.  
  5740. 1215
  5741. 01:05:25,089 --> 01:05:27,554
  5742. "theories are what
  5743. matter in science."
  5744.  
  5745. 1216
  5746. 01:05:27,556 --> 01:05:29,121
  5747. You know what?
  5748.  
  5749. 1217
  5750. 01:05:29,123 --> 01:05:31,255
  5751. It is unbelievable what
  5752. unbelievers have to believe
  5753.  
  5754. 1218
  5755. 01:05:31,257 --> 01:05:32,422
  5756. to be unbelievers!
  5757.  
  5758. 1219
  5759. 01:05:32,424 --> 01:05:34,422
  5760. Come to me when you
  5761. can show me the money.
  5762.  
  5763. 1220
  5764. 01:05:34,424 --> 01:05:35,555
  5765. Do you have facts or not?
  5766.  
  5767. 1221
  5768. 01:05:35,557 --> 01:05:37,087
  5769. Do you have data?
  5770.  
  5771. 1222
  5772. 01:05:37,089 --> 01:05:38,421
  5773. Do you have observations?
  5774.  
  5775. 1223
  5776. 01:05:38,423 --> 01:05:39,555
  5777. Do you have the
  5778. scientific method or not?
  5779.  
  5780. 1224
  5781. 01:05:39,557 --> 01:05:41,355
  5782. Contrary to what Bill Nye said,
  5783.  
  5784. 1225
  5785. 01:05:41,357 --> 01:05:44,754
  5786. we should tell our children
  5787. what our beliefs are and why.
  5788.  
  5789. 1226
  5790. 01:05:44,756 --> 01:05:48,221
  5791. We should not just say, "This
  5792. is what to believe, Johnny."
  5793.  
  5794. 1227
  5795. 01:05:48,223 --> 01:05:50,187
  5796. but say, "Here is
  5797. why we believe this
  5798.  
  5799. 1228
  5800. 01:05:50,189 --> 01:05:51,687
  5801. "and it's not just faith.

  5881. 1247
  5882. 01:09:01,424 --> 01:09:03,088
  5883. to as an ape-like creature.
  5884.  
  5885. 1248
  5886. 01:09:03,090 --> 01:09:04,554
  5887. They don't like
  5888. to call it an ape
  5889.  
  5890. 1249
  5891. 01:09:04,556 --> 01:09:06,188
  5892. because they will argue
  5893. that this creature

  5895. 1250

  5904. 1252
  5905. 01:09:10,689 --> 01:09:13,554

  5907. that ape-like creatures
  5908.  
  5909. 1253

  5913. 1254
  5914. 01:09:14,688 --> 01:09:16,487
  5915. I have a little
  5916. trouble with the idea
  5917.  
  5918. 1255
  5919. 01:09:16,489 --> 01:09:18,488
  5920. that ape-like creatures
  5921. became humans,
  5922.  
  5923. 1256
  5924. 01:09:18,490 --> 01:09:22,554
  5925. and of course that's the
  5926. whole realm of the ape-men.
  5927.  
  5928. 1257
  5929. 01:09:22,556 --> 01:09:24,754
  5930. Most people are
  5931. taught anthropology

  5933. 1258
  5934. 01:09:24,756 --> 01:09:26,686

  5938. 1259
  5939. 01:09:26,688 --> 01:09:28,221
  5940. And when they do
  5941. that, they are taught
  5942.  
  5943. 1260
  5944. 01:09:28,223 --> 01:09:29,821
  5945. an entirely different history.

  5947. 1261
  5948. 01:09:29,823 --> 01:09:31,355
  5949. People are taught,
  5950. and I was taught this
  5951.  
  5952. 1262
  5953. 01:09:31,357 --> 01:09:32,555
  5954. when I went to school as well,

  5956. 1263
  5957. 01:09:32,557 --> 01:09:34,721

  6065. 01:10:17,556 --> 01:10:20,288
  6066. Anthropology, if you start
  6067. with God and his word,
  6068.  
  6069. 1287
  6070. 01:10:20,290 --> 01:10:21,355
  6071. starts with Adam and Eve.
  6072.  
  6073. 1288
  6074. 01:10:21,357 --> 01:10:22,754
  6075. God creates Adam and Eve!
  6076.  
  6077. 1289
  6078. 01:10:22,756 --> 01:10:25,355
  6079. You see, what the Bible
  6080. says, what Genesis says,
  6081.  
  6082. 1290
  6083. 01:10:25,357 --> 01:10:28,521
  6084. is that on the sixth day of
  6085. the world, God made two humans.
  6086.  
  6087. 1291
  6088. 01:10:28,523 --> 01:10:30,288
  6089. He made a whole
  6090. bunch of monkeys.
  6091.  
  6092. 1292
  6093. 01:10:30,290 --> 01:10:32,421
  6094. He never made any monkey-humans,
  6095.  
  6096. 1293
  6097. 01:10:32,423 --> 01:10:34,488
  6098. but that's what they are always
  6099. looking for in the fossils.
  6100.  
  6101. 1294
  6102. 01:10:34,490 --> 01:10:38,054
  6103. And one by one, all of
  6104. the different so-called
  6105.  
  6106. 1295
  6107. 01:10:38,056 --> 01:10:40,488
  6108. missing link fossils
  6109. have been reclassified
  6110.  
  6111. 1296
  6112. 01:10:40,490 --> 01:10:45,087
  6113. as either over to the human
  6114. side or over to the monkey side.
  6115.  
  6116. 1297
  6117. 01:10:45,089 --> 01:10:48,687
  6118. Lucy, Lucy, the
  6119. Australopithecus afarensis,
  6120.  
  6121. 1298
  6122. 01:10:48,689 --> 01:10:53,421
  6123. discovered by Donald Johanson
  6124. in 1973, Johanson himself
  6125.  
  6126. 1299
  6127. 01:10:53,423 --> 01:10:56,686
  6128. said, "Lucy has really
  6129. been dethroned."
  6130.  
  6131. 1300
  6132. 01:10:56,688 --> 01:10:58,521
  6133. Meet Lucy.
  6134.  
  6135. 1301
  6136. 01:10:58,523 --> 01:11:01,154
  6137. The nasal bones do not protrude.
  6138.  
  6139. 1302
  6140. 01:11:01,156 --> 01:11:04,355
  6141. Do you notice any slope
  6142. at all to the face?
  6143.  
  6144. 1303
  6145. 01:11:04,357 --> 01:11:05,554
  6146. Of course.
  6147.  
  6148. 1304
  6149. 01:11:05,556 --> 01:11:07,754
  6150. Compare the zygomatic
  6151. arch to the slope.
  6152.  
  6153. 1305
  6154. 01:11:07,756 --> 01:11:10,154
  6155. Clearly, ape-like.
  6156.  
  6157. 1306
  6158. 01:11:10,156 --> 01:11:12,220
  6159. What about the forehead.
  6160.  
  6161. 1307
  6162. 01:11:12,222 --> 01:11:14,155
  6163. Is it flat or curved?
  6164.  
  6165. 1308
  6166. 01:11:14,157 --> 01:11:15,490
  6167. Absolutely flat.
  6168.  
  6169. 1309
  6170. 01:11:16,457 --> 01:11:18,221
  6171. When we look from the side,
  6172.  
  6173. 1310
  6174. 01:11:18,223 --> 01:11:20,621
  6175. the bone comes way out
  6176. on this flat forehead.
  6177.  
  6178. 1311
  6179. 01:11:20,623 --> 01:11:23,422
  6180. And it is very
  6181. difficult to see whether
  6182.  
  6183. 1312
  6184. 01:11:23,424 --> 01:11:25,687
  6185. there are orbits or eye sockets
  6186.  
  6187. 1313
  6188. 01:11:25,689 --> 01:11:27,620
  6189. viewed from the side.
  6190.  
  6191. 1314
  6192. 01:11:27,622 --> 01:11:29,287
  6193. Finally, cranial capacity.
  6194.  
  6195. 1315
  6196. 01:11:29,289 --> 01:11:34,290
  6197. Lucy has a small brain by ape
  6198. standards, nevermind human.
  6199.  
  6200. 1316
  6201. 01:11:35,555 --> 01:11:36,654
  6202. Lucy had a brain
  6203. one-third the size of ours.
  6204.  
  6205. 1317
  6206. 01:11:36,656 --> 01:11:40,486
  6207. At full growth, as a full-grown
  6208. woman, only 65 pounds,
  6209.  
  6210. 1318
  6211. 01:11:40,488 --> 01:11:42,154
  6212. three and a half feet tall.
  6213.  
  6214. 1319
  6215. 01:11:42,156 --> 01:11:43,486
  6216. This was a chimp.
  6217.  
  6218. 1320
  6219. 01:11:43,488 --> 01:11:47,055
  6220. And the drawings and
  6221. the skeletal diagrams
  6222.  
  6223. 1321
  6224. 01:11:47,057 --> 01:11:48,454
  6225. of her standing upright,
  6226.  
  6227. 1322
  6228. 01:11:48,456 --> 01:11:51,754
  6229. this probably would have been
  6230. very unnatural and painful
  6231.  
  6232. 1323
  6233. 01:11:51,756 --> 01:11:54,753
  6234. knowing what we know now about
  6235. the toe bones being curved
  6236.  
  6237. 1324
  6238. 01:11:54,755 --> 01:11:57,754
  6239. more than on a modern
  6240. chimp, and many other things
  6241.  
  6242. 1325
  6243. 01:11:57,756 --> 01:11:59,422
  6244. about the fingers too.
  6245.  
  6246. 1326
  6247. 01:11:59,424 --> 01:12:02,553
  6248. With a divergent big toe, is
  6249. what they're calling it now
  6250.  
  6251. 1327
  6252. 01:12:02,555 --> 01:12:04,421
  6253. as they have discovered
  6254. more of the fossils.
  6255.  
  6256. 1328
  6257. 01:12:04,423 --> 01:12:06,687
  6258. That means a thumb on the foot.
  6259.  
  6260. 1329
  6261. 01:12:06,689 --> 01:12:09,121
  6262. Lucy was a chimp!
  6263.  
  6264. 1330
  6265. 01:12:09,123 --> 01:12:12,355
  6266. The quest for the
  6267. elusive missing-link fossil
  6268.  
  6269. 1331
  6270. 01:12:12,357 --> 01:12:14,621
  6271. between ape-like
  6272. creatures and humans
  6273.  
  6274. 1332
  6275. 01:12:14,623 --> 01:12:17,621
  6276. has given rise to some
  6277. of the grossest examples
  6278.  
  6279. 1333
  6280. 01:12:17,623 --> 01:12:20,753
  6281. of evolutionary
  6282. propaganda to date.
  6283.  
  6284. 1334
  6285. 01:12:20,755 --> 01:12:24,088
  6286. Lucy, who they claim is
  6287. our distant relative,
  6288.  
  6289. 1335
  6290. 01:12:24,090 --> 01:12:25,686
  6291. is perhaps the worst.
  6292.  
  6293. 1336
  6294. 01:12:25,688 --> 01:12:29,721
  6295. To see why, let's
  6296. isolate a scanned replica
  6297.  
  6298. 1337
  6299. 01:12:29,723 --> 01:12:33,354
  6300. of the Lucy skull, as
  6301. evolutionists have imagined it,
  6302.  
  6303. 1338
  6304. 01:12:33,356 --> 01:12:36,687
  6305. and place it next to the
  6306. skull of a modern chimpanzee.
  6307.  
  6308. 1339
  6309. 01:12:36,689 --> 01:12:40,087
  6310. What becomes
  6311. immediately apparent
  6312.  
  6313. 1340
  6314. 01:12:40,089 --> 01:12:42,753
  6315. is that the two skulls
  6316. are nearly identical,
  6317.  
  6318. 1341
  6319. 01:12:42,755 --> 01:12:47,321
  6320. with the exception that Lucy's
  6321. brain cavity is even smaller.
  6322.  
  6323. 1342
  6324. 01:12:47,323 --> 01:12:49,687
  6325. To fuller illustrate this,
  6326.  
  6327. 1343
  6328. 01:12:49,689 --> 01:12:53,288
  6329. let's pass the Lucy skull
  6330. into the chimpanzee skull.
  6331.  
  6332. 1344
  6333. 01:12:53,290 --> 01:12:56,721
  6334. With the two skulls now
  6335. on top of one another,
  6336.  
  6337. 1345
  6338. 01:12:56,723 --> 01:12:59,754
  6339. it seems incredibly
  6340. clear that Lucy
  6341.  
  6342. 1346
  6343. 01:12:59,756 --> 01:13:02,754
  6344. was just a type of chimpanzee.
  6345.  
  6346. 1347
  6347. 01:13:02,756 --> 01:13:04,754
  6348. To further illustrate the point,
  6349.  
  6350. 1348
  6351. 01:13:04,756 --> 01:13:09,220
  6352. let's now pass the Lucy skull
  6353. into that of a modern human.
  6354.  
  6355. 1349
  6356. 01:13:09,222 --> 01:13:13,220
  6357. To be gracious, even
  6358. if we scale Lucy up,
  6359.  
  6360. 1350
  6361. 01:13:13,222 --> 01:13:17,087
  6362. she still doesn't come
  6363. close to being human.
  6364.  
  6365. 1351
  6366. 01:13:17,089 --> 01:13:20,087
  6367. What would your conclusion
  6368. be on a creature like this?
  6369.  
  6370. 1352
  6371. 01:13:20,089 --> 01:13:21,720
  6372. I mean, clearly, it's an ape.
  6373.  
  6374. 1353
  6375. 01:13:21,722 --> 01:13:24,221
  6376. In fact, what's Lucy's
  6377. scientific name?
  6378.  
  6379. 1354
  6380. 01:13:24,223 --> 01:13:26,754
  6381. Australopithecus.
  6382.  
  6383. 1355
  6384. 01:13:26,756 --> 01:13:29,288
  6385. That means southern ape.
  6386.  
  6387. 1356
  6388. 01:13:29,290 --> 01:13:32,357
  6389. Whatever else we could say
  6390. about Lucy, she is an ape.
  6391.  
  6392. 1357
  6393. 01:13:33,688 --> 01:13:36,421
  6394. Let's look at another
  6395. presumed ancestor of man,
  6396.  
  6397. 1358
  6398. 01:13:36,423 --> 01:13:39,220
  6399. or a pre-homo sapiens.
  6400.  
  6401. 1359
  6402. 01:13:39,222 --> 01:13:40,420
  6403. It's neanderthal Man.
  6404.  
  6405. 1360
  6406. 01:13:40,422 --> 01:13:42,221
  6407. The problem with neanderthals,
  6408.  
  6409. 1361
  6410. 01:13:42,223 --> 01:13:43,621
  6411. when I was in college,
  6412. they taught us that
  6413.  
  6414. 1362
  6415. 01:13:43,623 --> 01:13:44,788
  6416. they were the missing link
  6417.  
  6418. 1363
  6419. 01:13:44,790 --> 01:13:46,686
  6420. and that they
  6421. could barely grunt.
  6422.  
  6423. 1364
  6424. 01:13:48,257 --> 01:13:50,354
  6425. And now we found out that
  6426. the hypoglossal canal,
  6427.  
  6428. 1365
  6429. 01:13:50,356 --> 01:13:54,320
  6430. a hole at the base of the
  6431. skull where a nerve goes out
  6432.  
  6433. 1366
  6434. 01:13:54,322 --> 01:13:56,621
  6435. to the mouth, so
  6436. controls our speaking,
  6437.  
  6438. 1367
  6439. 01:13:56,623 --> 01:14:01,353
  6440. the hypoglossal nerve is the
  6441. same size in neanderthals
  6442.  
  6443. 1368
  6444. 01:14:01,355 --> 01:14:03,486
  6445. as in modern people today.
  6446.  
  6447. 1369
  6448. 01:14:03,488 --> 01:14:06,687
  6449. Monkeys have just a little,
  6450. thin thread-like nerve.
  6451.  
  6452. 1370
  6453. 01:14:06,689 --> 01:14:08,421
  6454. They have the hardware,
  6455.  
  6456. 1371
  6457. 01:14:08,423 --> 01:14:10,287
  6458. they just don't have
  6459. the software drivers
  6460.  
  6461. 1372
  6462. 01:14:10,289 --> 01:14:11,821
  6463. to actually talk.
  6464.  
  6465. 1373
  6466. 01:14:11,823 --> 01:14:13,787
  6467. They think, they have thoughts
  6468. and probably emotions,
  6469.  
  6470. 1374
  6471. 01:14:13,789 --> 01:14:16,788
  6472. but they just can't
  6473. do that like we can.
  6474.  
  6475. 1375
  6476. 01:14:16,790 --> 01:14:19,754
  6477. Neanderthals
  6478. obviously could talk.
  6479.  
  6480. 1376
  6481. 01:14:19,756 --> 01:14:22,753
  6482. We have every bone in
  6483. neanderthal man's body.
  6484.  
  6485. 1377
  6486. 01:14:22,755 --> 01:14:24,486
  6487. There's not a missing bone.
  6488.  
  6489. 1378
  6490. 01:14:24,488 --> 01:14:26,753
  6491. So, we know that the
  6492. nasal bone is protruded,
  6493.  
  6494. 1379
  6495. 01:14:26,755 --> 01:14:28,687
  6496. just as you see them there.
  6497.  
  6498. 1380
  6499. 01:14:28,689 --> 01:14:30,587
  6500. Even this nasal spine down here,
  6501.  
  6502. 1381
  6503. 01:14:30,589 --> 01:14:32,420
  6504. which is just under your nose,
  6505.  
  6506. 1382
  6507. 01:14:32,422 --> 01:14:35,621
  6508. the nasal spine is not
  6509. found on apes either.
  6510.  
  6511. 1383
  6512. 01:14:35,623 --> 01:14:37,687
  6513. So, we have the spine and
  6514. we have the protruding nose.
  6515.  
  6516. 1384
  6517. 01:14:37,689 --> 01:14:42,088
  6518. What about the
  6519. slope of the face?
  6520.  
  6521. 1385
  6522. 01:14:42,090 --> 01:14:43,553
  6523. Perpendicular.
  6524.  
  6525. 1386
  6526. 01:14:43,555 --> 01:14:48,155
  6527. What about the curvature
  6528. of the forehead?
  6529.  
  6530. 1387
  6531. 01:14:48,157 --> 01:14:50,353
  6532. It's curved enough
  6533. that you can see
  6534.  
  6535. 1388
  6536. 01:14:50,355 --> 01:14:53,386
  6537. into the orbits quite
  6538. easily from the side.
  6539.  
  6540. 1389
  6541. 01:14:53,388 --> 01:14:56,088
  6542. Finally, cranial capacity.
  6543.  
  6544. 1390
  6545. 01:14:56,090 --> 01:14:58,154
  6546. If you compare this skull
  6547.  
  6548. 1391
  6549. 01:14:58,156 --> 01:15:00,687
  6550. to an adult modern human skull,
  6551.  
  6552. 1392
  6553. 01:15:00,689 --> 01:15:04,087
  6554. it's about 100 CCs
  6555. or more, larger.
  6556.  
  6557. 1393
  6558. 01:15:04,089 --> 01:15:05,686
  6559. What would your conclusion be?
  6560.  
  6561. 1394
  6562. 01:15:05,688 --> 01:15:08,087
  6563. Is this an ape or
  6564. is this a human?
  6565.  
  6566. 1395
  6567. 01:15:08,089 --> 01:15:09,687
  6568. It's obviously a human.
  6569.  
  6570. 1396
  6571. 01:15:09,689 --> 01:15:11,221
  6572. But if it's a human,
  6573.  
  6574. 1397
  6575. 01:15:11,223 --> 01:15:13,188
  6576. we expect to find more
  6577. than just simply the bones.
  6578.  
  6579. 1398
  6580. 01:15:13,190 --> 01:15:15,554
  6581. We expect some cultural
  6582. evidence, and we have that.
  6583.  
  6584. 1399
  6585. 01:15:15,556 --> 01:15:18,420
  6586. We've found, since the
  6587. time that I was in college
  6588.  
  6589. 1400
  6590. 01:15:18,422 --> 01:15:22,486
  6591. in the '70s, we've found
  6592. turquoise and pink-colored
  6593.  
  6594. 1401
  6595. 01:15:22,488 --> 01:15:25,421
  6596. flax fibers in
  6597. neanderthal caves.
  6598.  
  6599. 1402
  6600. 01:15:25,423 --> 01:15:27,219
  6601. They liked colorful clothing.
  6602.  
  6603. 1403
  6604. 01:15:27,221 --> 01:15:29,287
  6605. They were built better than us.
  6606.  
  6607. 1404
  6608. 01:15:29,289 --> 01:15:31,155
  6609. They also had bigger
  6610. brains than us.
  6611.  
  6612. 1405
  6613. 01:15:31,157 --> 01:15:32,753
  6614. The average human today,
  6615.  
  6616. 1406
  6617. 01:15:32,755 --> 01:15:35,620
  6618. the braincase is 1200
  6619. cubic centimeters.
  6620.  
  6621. 1407
  6622. 01:15:35,622 --> 01:15:38,421
  6623. In neanderthals, 1400
  6624. cubic centimeters.
  6625.  
  6626. 1408
  6627. 01:15:38,423 --> 01:15:40,286
  6628. We have burial customs.
  6629.  
  6630. 1409
  6631. 01:15:40,288 --> 01:15:42,287
  6632. We have tools of
  6633. all different kinds.
  6634.  
  6635. 1410
  6636. 01:15:42,289 --> 01:15:43,487
  6637. They were good hunters.
  6638.  
  6639. 1411
  6640. 01:15:43,489 --> 01:15:45,155
  6641. They had strategies.
  6642.  
  6643. 1412
  6644. 01:15:45,157 --> 01:15:47,154
  6645. They took women on
  6646. their hunting trips.
  6647.  
  6648. 1413
  6649. 01:15:47,156 --> 01:15:49,054
  6650. One evolutionist actually said
  6651.  
  6652. 1414
  6653. 01:15:49,056 --> 01:15:51,220
  6654. that might be why
  6655. they went extinct.
  6656.  
  6657. 1415
  6658. 01:15:51,222 --> 01:15:54,420
  6659. Recently, they've found what
  6660. is arguably a cosmetics kit,
  6661.  
  6662. 1416
  6663. 01:15:54,422 --> 01:15:57,353
  6664. a couple of scallop shells
  6665. unhinged with pigments in them.
  6666.  
  6667. 1417
  6668. 01:15:57,355 --> 01:15:59,387
  6669. They have found what
  6670. appear to be flutes
  6671.  
  6672. 1418
  6673. 01:15:59,389 --> 01:16:01,353
  6674. with holes in positions
  6675. to be playable
  6676.  
  6677. 1419
  6678. 01:16:01,355 --> 01:16:02,821
  6679. buried with neanderthal man.
  6680.  
  6681. 1420
  6682. 01:16:02,823 --> 01:16:04,621
  6683. We found a musical instrument,
  6684.  
  6685. 1421
  6686. 01:16:04,623 --> 01:16:07,821
  6687. a bare bone with holes
  6688. drilled in it like a flute.
  6689.  
  6690. 1422
  6691. 01:16:07,823 --> 01:16:10,055
  6692. I don't know if you've ever
  6693. heard a monkey play a flute,
  6694.  
  6695. 1423
  6696. 01:16:10,057 --> 01:16:11,486
  6697. but it really doesn't work.
  6698.  
  6699. 1424
  6700. 01:16:11,488 --> 01:16:15,187
  6701. We find flowers buried in
  6702. the graves of their dead.
  6703.  
  6704. 1425
  6705. 01:16:15,189 --> 01:16:17,088
  6706. Animals, monkeys,
  6707. don't bury their dead.
  6708.  
  6709. 1426
  6710. 01:16:17,090 --> 01:16:18,220
  6711. Humans do that.
  6712.  
  6713. 1427
  6714. 01:16:18,222 --> 01:16:20,687
  6715. They had art, religion,
  6716. culture, language.
  6717.  
  6718. 1428
  6719. 01:16:20,689 --> 01:16:22,287
  6720. Unquestionably human.
  6721.  
  6722. 1429
  6723. 01:16:22,289 --> 01:16:25,654
  6724. And yet, when I first
  6725. bought this model of
  6726.  
  6727. 1430
  6728. 01:16:25,656 --> 01:16:28,821
  6729. neanderthal man, it was
  6730. called Homo-sapiens subspecies
  6731.  
  6732. 1431
  6733. 01:16:28,823 --> 01:16:30,553
  6734. neanderthalensis.
  6735.  
  6736. 1432
  6737. 01:16:30,555 --> 01:16:32,687
  6738. In other words, they gave it
  6739. a different subspecies name.
  6740.  
  6741. 1433
  6742. 01:16:32,689 --> 01:16:35,788
  6743. Today, the scientific
  6744. designation, the classification,
  6745.  
  6746. 1434
  6747. 01:16:35,790 --> 01:16:37,521
  6748. for neanderthal man
  6749.  
  6750. 1435
  6751. 01:16:37,523 --> 01:16:40,487
  6752. is homo-sapiens
  6753. neanderthalensis.
  6754.  
  6755. 1436
  6756. 01:16:40,489 --> 01:16:43,820
  6757. And that third word is
  6758. actually the designation
  6759.  
  6760. 1437
  6761. 01:16:43,822 --> 01:16:46,454
  6762. of the variety of
  6763. humans that it is.
  6764.  
  6765. 1438
  6766. 01:16:46,456 --> 01:16:48,753
  6767. We are now classified
  6768. as homo-sapiens sapiens.
  6769.  
  6770. 1439
  6771. 01:16:48,755 --> 01:16:52,353
  6772. So what creation has been
  6773. saying all along is true.
  6774.  
  6775. 1440
  6776. 01:16:52,355 --> 01:16:54,586
  6777. Neanderthals were people too!
  6778.  
  6779. 1441
  6780. 01:16:54,588 --> 01:16:57,154
  6781. 100% human.
  6782.  
  6783. 1442
  6784. 01:16:57,156 --> 01:16:58,621
  6785. And that's true, by the
  6786. way, of the whole body,
  6787.  
  6788. 1443
  6789. 01:16:58,623 --> 01:17:00,153
  6790. not just the skull.
  6791.  
  6792. 1444
  6793. 01:17:00,155 --> 01:17:01,253
  6794. The same experiment
  6795.  
  6796. 1445
  6797. 01:17:01,255 --> 01:17:03,421
  6798. can be done with neanderthals,
  6799.  
  6800. 1446
  6801. 01:17:03,423 --> 01:17:06,354
  6802. which evolutionists
  6803. claim is another branch
  6804.  
  6805. 1447
  6806. 01:17:06,356 --> 01:17:08,687
  6807. in the transition
  6808. from apes to humans.
  6809.  
  6810. 1448
  6811. 01:17:08,689 --> 01:17:11,686
  6812. Let's place the skull
  6813. of a neanderthal
  6814.  
  6815. 1449
  6816. 01:17:11,688 --> 01:17:15,154
  6817. next to the skull
  6818. of a modern human.
  6819.  
  6820. 1450
  6821. 01:17:15,156 --> 01:17:17,821
  6822. The Neanderthal has the
  6823. same facial structures.
  6824.  
  6825. 1451
  6826. 01:17:17,823 --> 01:17:21,421
  6827. We all know that everyone
  6828. has a uniquely-shaped skull.
  6829.  
  6830. 1452
  6831. 01:17:21,423 --> 01:17:23,820
  6832. Some people have larger heads,
  6833.  
  6834. 1453
  6835. 01:17:23,822 --> 01:17:26,153
  6836. some have wider cheek bones,
  6837.  
  6838. 1454
  6839. 01:17:26,155 --> 01:17:28,820
  6840. broader jaws and brow ridges,
  6841.  
  6842. 1455
  6843. 01:17:28,822 --> 01:17:30,621
  6844. more slope to their foreheads.
  6845.  
  6846. 1456
  6847. 01:17:30,623 --> 01:17:32,686
  6848. With the right combination
  6849. of these traits
  6850.  
  6851. 1457
  6852. 01:17:32,688 --> 01:17:34,554
  6853. that we see in people today,
  6854.  
  6855. 1458
  6856. 01:17:34,556 --> 01:17:39,557
  6857. it is easy to see how a
  6858. neanderthal is simply a human.
  6859.  
  6860. 1459
  6861. 01:17:41,822 --> 01:17:44,153
  6862. Everyone's been told that
  6863. there are dozens and dozens
  6864.  
  6865. 1460
  6866. 01:17:44,155 --> 01:17:46,686
  6867. of these solid
  6868. missing-link fossils,
  6869.  
  6870. 1461
  6871. 01:17:46,688 --> 01:17:48,420
  6872. transitional forms,
  6873. so and so man,
  6874.  
  6875. 1462
  6876. 01:17:48,422 --> 01:17:50,054
  6877. and Java Man,
  6878.  
  6879. 1463
  6880. 01:17:50,056 --> 01:17:51,220
  6881. and Piltdown Man,
  6882.  
  6883. 1464
  6884. 01:17:51,222 --> 01:17:52,421
  6885. and...
  6886.  
  6887. 1465
  6888. 01:17:52,423 --> 01:17:53,621
  6889. Cro-Magnon Man,
  6890. neanderthal man.
  6891.  
  6892. 1466
  6893. 01:17:53,623 --> 01:17:56,354
  6894. Essentially, all of Homo-erectus
  6895. would be just human beings.
  6896.  
  6897. 1467
  6898. 01:17:56,356 --> 01:17:59,219
  6899. Don't just believe
  6900. urban myths of the proofs
  6901.  
  6902. 1468
  6903. 01:17:59,221 --> 01:18:03,087
  6904. of evolution like junk DNA,
  6905. like missing-link fossils.
  6906.  
  6907. 1469
  6908. 01:18:03,089 --> 01:18:04,686
  6909. The secular world
  6910. teaches that you evolved
  6911.  
  6912. 1470
  6913. 01:18:04,688 --> 01:18:06,653
  6914. from some ape-like ancestor,
  6915. that there was no Adam and Eve.
  6916.  
  6917. 1471
  6918. 01:18:06,655 --> 01:18:08,420
  6919. And since there's
  6920. no Adam and Eve,
  6921.  
  6922. 1472
  6923. 01:18:08,422 --> 01:18:10,287
  6924. then there was no fall into sin,
  6925.  
  6926. 1473
  6927. 01:18:10,289 --> 01:18:12,219
  6928. which means that there
  6929. is no need for a savior.
  6930.  
  6931. 1474
  6932. 01:18:12,221 --> 01:18:14,153
  6933. So, see, the
  6934. secular anthropology
  6935.  
  6936. 1475
  6937. 01:18:14,155 --> 01:18:15,754
  6938. not only attacks the
  6939. authority of the Bible,
  6940.  
  6941. 1476
  6942. 01:18:15,756 --> 01:18:17,657
  6943. but it attacks the
  6944. very gospel itself.
  6945.  
  6946. 1477
  6947. 01:18:46,823 --> 01:18:49,223
  6948. "And God said,
  6949.  
  6950. 1478
  6951. 01:18:55,289 --> 01:18:56,623
  6952. "'Let us make man
  6953.  
  6954. 1479
  6955. 01:19:07,822 --> 01:19:09,155
  6956. "in our image,
  6957.  
  6958. 1480
  6959. 01:19:15,288 --> 01:19:17,390
  6960. "after our likeness.
  6961.  
  6962. 1481
  6963. 01:20:13,422 --> 01:20:17,756
  6964. "And let them have dominion
  6965. over the fish of the sea,
  6966.  
  6967. 1482
  6968. 01:20:22,355 --> 01:20:24,757
  6969. "and over the fowl of the air,
  6970.  
  6971. 1483
  6972. 01:20:26,555 --> 01:20:28,155
  6973. "and over the cattle,
  6974.  
  6975. 1484
  6976. 01:20:30,155 --> 01:20:32,290
  6977. "and over all the earth,
  6978.  
  6979. 1485
  6980. 01:20:34,322 --> 01:20:38,319
  6981. "and over every creeping
  6982. thing that creepeth
  6983.  
  6984. 1486
  6985. 01:20:38,321 --> 01:20:39,622
  6986. "upon the earth."
  6987.  
  6988. 1487
  6989. 01:21:33,288 --> 01:21:36,520
  6990. I was debating the student
  6991. Atheist Club president
  6992.  
  6993. 1488
  6994. 01:21:36,522 --> 01:21:38,119
  6995. at the College of New Jersey.
  6996.  
  6997. 1489
  6998. 01:21:38,121 --> 01:21:40,120
  6999. He made the statement
  7000. in his closing comments
  7001.  
  7002. 1490
  7003. 01:21:40,122 --> 01:21:42,186
  7004. that there were
  7005. dozens of fossils
  7006.  
  7007. 1491
  7008. 01:21:42,188 --> 01:21:47,189
  7009. that proved the transition
  7010. from simians to humans.
  7011.  
  7012. 1492
  7013. 01:21:47,688 --> 01:21:49,319
  7014. And I said,
  7015.  
  7016. 1493
  7017. 01:21:49,321 --> 01:21:51,553
  7018. "Now, you said that there
  7019. were dozens of fossils.
  7020.  
  7021. 1494
  7022. 01:21:51,555 --> 01:21:53,554
  7023. "Can you name one?"
  7024.  
  7025. 1495
  7026. 01:21:53,556 --> 01:21:55,486
  7027. He said, "Well, the
  7028. literature is just replete."
  7029.  
  7030. 1496
  7031. 01:21:55,488 --> 01:21:56,354
  7032. Blah blah blah.
  7033.  
  7034. 1497
  7035. 01:21:56,356 --> 01:21:57,587
  7036. "There are so many."
  7037.  
  7038. 1498
  7039. 01:21:57,589 --> 01:21:58,754
  7040. And I said, "I
  7041. didn't ask for many.
  7042.  
  7043. 1499
  7044. 01:21:58,756 --> 01:22:00,387
  7045. "I just asked you for one.
  7046.  
  7047. 1500
  7048. 01:22:00,389 --> 01:22:02,386
  7049. "Just tell the audience one."
  7050.  
  7051. 1501
  7052. 01:22:02,388 --> 01:22:05,788
  7053. And he went, "Well,
  7054. Australopithecus africanus."
  7055.  
  7056. 1502
  7057. 01:22:05,790 --> 01:22:07,153
  7058. I said to the audience, "Okay."
  7059.  
  7060. 1503
  7061. 01:22:07,155 --> 01:22:08,353
  7062. I stood up and I said,
  7063.  
  7064. 1504
  7065. 01:22:08,355 --> 01:22:10,788
  7066. "Now we're gonna learn
  7067. about urban myths."
  7068.  
  7069. 1505
  7070. 01:22:10,790 --> 01:22:12,621
  7071. One of the common
  7072. misconceptions
  7073.  
  7074. 1506
  7075. 01:22:12,623 --> 01:22:15,186
  7076. that exists in society
  7077. is that they say
  7078.  
  7079. 1507
  7080. 01:22:15,188 --> 01:22:17,720
  7081. that humans and chimps
  7082. are 99% similar.
  7083.  
  7084. 1508
  7085. 01:22:17,722 --> 01:22:20,554
  7086. I am very disillusioned
  7087. by the idea
  7088.  
  7089. 1509
  7090. 01:22:20,556 --> 01:22:23,220
  7091. of using a percentage to
  7092. describe how similar humans
  7093.  
  7094. 1510
  7095. 01:22:23,222 --> 01:22:24,421
  7096. and chimps are.
  7097.  
  7098. 1511
  7099. 01:22:24,423 --> 01:22:26,420
  7100. You cannot use a
  7101. percent similarity
  7102.  
  7103. 1512
  7104. 01:22:26,422 --> 01:22:29,220
  7105. to describe common ancestry!
  7106.  
  7107. 1513
  7108. 01:22:29,222 --> 01:22:31,219
  7109. One of the
  7110. most popular misconceptions
  7111.  
  7112. 1514
  7113. 01:22:31,221 --> 01:22:35,486
  7114. held by evolutionists is that
  7115. birds evolved from dinosaurs.
  7116.  
  7117. 1515
  7118. 01:22:35,488 --> 01:22:37,621
  7119. What proof do they
  7120. have, you might ask?
  7121.  
  7122. 1516
  7123. 01:22:37,623 --> 01:22:42,153
  7124. Well, just look at their
  7125. similar design, they might say,
  7126.  
  7127. 1517
  7128. 01:22:42,155 --> 01:22:44,820
  7129. pointing out that both
  7130. birds and some dinosaurs
  7131.  
  7132. 1518
  7133. 01:22:44,822 --> 01:22:46,520
  7134. have hollow bones.
  7135.  
  7136. 1519
  7137. 01:22:46,522 --> 01:22:50,220
  7138. But common features
  7139. can also be understood
  7140.  
  7141. 1520
  7142. 01:22:50,222 --> 01:22:52,487
  7143. as evidence for a
  7144. common designer,
  7145.  
  7146. 1521
  7147. 01:22:52,489 --> 01:22:54,686
  7148. who didn't need to
  7149. reinvent the wheel
  7150.  
  7151. 1522
  7152. 01:22:54,688 --> 01:22:57,153
  7153. every time He
  7154. created a new kind.
  7155.  
  7156. 1523
  7157. 01:22:57,155 --> 01:23:01,187
  7158. Humans and frogs both have five
  7159. digits on their lower limbs,
  7160.  
  7161. 1524
  7162. 01:23:01,189 --> 01:23:03,354
  7163. but that doesn't
  7164. mean frogs and humans
  7165.  
  7166. 1525
  7167. 01:23:03,356 --> 01:23:05,086
  7168. share a common ancestor,
  7169.  
  7170. 1526
  7171. 01:23:05,088 --> 01:23:08,486
  7172. unless you believe
  7173. fairy tales, of course!
  7174.  
  7175. 1527
  7176. 01:23:08,488 --> 01:23:11,620
  7177. It's not too surprising
  7178. that our chromosomes
  7179.  
  7180. 1528
  7181. 01:23:11,622 --> 01:23:14,254
  7182. look a lot the same
  7183. as a chimpanzee's.
  7184.  
  7185. 1529
  7186. 01:23:14,256 --> 01:23:16,686
  7187. Of all other living
  7188. things, their biochemistry,
  7189.  
  7190. 1530
  7191. 01:23:16,688 --> 01:23:19,254
  7192. their physiology, and
  7193. their body structures
  7194.  
  7195. 1531
  7196. 01:23:19,256 --> 01:23:20,553
  7197. look the most like us.
  7198.  
  7199. 1532
  7200. 01:23:20,555 --> 01:23:23,554
  7201. Their DNA ought to look
  7202. the most like ours too.
  7203.  
  7204. 1533
  7205. 01:23:23,556 --> 01:23:25,752
  7206. For goodness sake,
  7207. bananas have DNA
  7208.  
  7209. 1534
  7210. 01:23:25,754 --> 01:23:27,453
  7211. that is 50% the same as ours.
  7212.  
  7213. 1535
  7214. 01:23:27,455 --> 01:23:31,319
  7215. So, monkeys should
  7216. have 80, 90, 98%
  7217.  
  7218. 1536
  7219. 01:23:31,321 --> 01:23:32,487
  7220. the same DNA.
  7221.  
  7222. 1537
  7223. 01:23:32,489 --> 01:23:34,721
  7224. Their bodies look
  7225. that much like ours.
  7226.  
  7227. 1538
  7228. 01:23:34,723 --> 01:23:37,687
  7229. If evolution was not true
  7230. and there is a designer,
  7231.  
  7232. 1539
  7233. 01:23:37,689 --> 01:23:39,819
  7234. a creator God who
  7235. made those chromosomes
  7236.  
  7237. 1540
  7238. 01:23:39,821 --> 01:23:41,753
  7239. in the beginning, this is
  7240. what it would look like.
  7241.  
  7242. 1541
  7243. 01:23:41,755 --> 01:23:43,521
  7244. When you start
  7245. looking at the genome
  7246.  
  7247. 1542
  7248. 01:23:43,523 --> 01:23:45,753
  7249. and the DNA differences
  7250. and you try to figure out,
  7251.  
  7252. 1543
  7253. 01:23:45,755 --> 01:23:47,752
  7254. how different are we?
  7255.  
  7256. 1544
  7257. 01:23:47,754 --> 01:23:51,254
  7258. What makes humans different
  7259. from everything else?
  7260.  
  7261. 1545
  7262. 01:23:51,256 --> 01:23:54,287
  7263. This image of God as the
  7264. Latin phrase Imago Dei.
  7265.  
  7266. 1546
  7267. 01:23:54,289 --> 01:23:55,620
  7268. What does that mean?
  7269.  
  7270. 1547
  7271. 01:23:55,622 --> 01:23:57,287
  7272. We're not animals.
  7273.  
  7274. 1548
  7275. 01:23:57,289 --> 01:23:58,554
  7276. We're different
  7277. from the animals.
  7278.  
  7279. 1549
  7280. 01:23:58,556 --> 01:24:00,187
  7281. Human beings have court systems.
  7282.  
  7283. 1550
  7284. 01:24:00,189 --> 01:24:02,421
  7285. We believe in justice and
  7286. truth and righteousness
  7287.  
  7288. 1551
  7289. 01:24:02,423 --> 01:24:04,187
  7290. because we are made
  7291. in the image of God.
  7292.  
  7293. 1552
  7294. 01:24:04,189 --> 01:24:05,620
  7295. We are moral creations.
  7296.  
  7297. 1553
  7298. 01:24:05,622 --> 01:24:07,287
  7299. When you read
  7300. through Genesis 1,
  7301.  
  7302. 1554
  7303. 01:24:07,289 --> 01:24:09,553
  7304. it comes to the pinnacle
  7305. at the very end.
  7306.  
  7307. 1555
  7308. 01:24:09,555 --> 01:24:13,553
  7309. Humans are created, and
  7310. behold, it was very good.
  7311.  
  7312. 1556
  7313. 01:24:13,555 --> 01:24:15,421
  7314. Now when God says that
  7315. something is very good,
  7316.  
  7317. 1557
  7318. 01:24:15,423 --> 01:24:17,086
  7319. how good is it?
  7320.  
  7321. 1558
  7322. 01:24:17,088 --> 01:24:18,553
  7323. It was a perfect creation
  7324. where there was no death.
  7325.  
  7326. 1559
  7327. 01:24:18,555 --> 01:24:20,220
  7328. God made the world perfect.
  7329.  
  7330. 1560
  7331. 01:24:20,222 --> 01:24:21,820
  7332. There was no
  7333. death or bloodshed
  7334.  
  7335. 1561
  7336. 01:24:21,822 --> 01:24:23,752
  7337. according to Genesis 1:29, 30.
  7338.  
  7339. 1562
  7340. 01:24:23,754 --> 01:24:26,219
  7341. Originally, all of the
  7342. animals were vegetarian
  7343.  
  7344. 1563
  7345. 01:24:26,221 --> 01:24:27,620
  7346. and mankind was vegetarian.
  7347.  
  7348. 1564
  7349. 01:24:27,622 --> 01:24:29,220
  7350. We weren't allowed to eat
  7351. meat until after the flood.
  7352.  
  7353. 1565
  7354. 01:24:29,222 --> 01:24:31,286
  7355. That's when God first
  7356. permitted man to eat meat.
  7357.  
  7358. 1566
  7359. 01:24:31,288 --> 01:24:32,752
  7360. People didn't kill
  7361. animals for food.
  7362.  
  7363. 1567
  7364. 01:24:32,754 --> 01:24:34,686
  7365. Animals didn't rip
  7366. each other up for food.
  7367.  
  7368. 1568
  7369. 01:24:34,688 --> 01:24:36,553
  7370. Man and the animals
  7371. were vegetarian.
  7372.  
  7373. 1569
  7374. 01:24:36,555 --> 01:24:38,752
  7375. For those who don't
  7376. believe God's word,
  7377.  
  7378. 1570
  7379. 01:24:38,754 --> 01:24:40,086
  7380. they're living in the present
  7381.  
  7382. 1571
  7383. 01:24:40,088 --> 01:24:41,486
  7384. and they look around
  7385. and see death,
  7386.  
  7387. 1572
  7388. 01:24:41,488 --> 01:24:43,054
  7389. so they assume that death
  7390. has always been here.
  7391.  
  7392. 1573
  7393. 01:24:43,056 --> 01:24:44,420
  7394. When I look at the human body,
  7395.  
  7396. 1574
  7397. 01:24:44,422 --> 01:24:46,087
  7398. I see something that
  7399. looks like it was designed
  7400.  
  7401. 1575
  7402. 01:24:46,089 --> 01:24:48,420
  7403. to last forever because we
  7404. keep turning over our parts.
  7405.  
  7406. 1576
  7407. 01:24:48,422 --> 01:24:50,421
  7408. That's the way our body is.
  7409.  
  7410. 1577
  7411. 01:24:50,423 --> 01:24:52,554
  7412. We're created to live forever.
  7413.  
  7414. 1578
  7415. 01:24:52,556 --> 01:24:55,354
  7416. If your car was
  7417. operating the way we do,
  7418.  
  7419. 1579
  7420. 01:24:55,356 --> 01:24:56,621
  7421. where all the parts
  7422. kept turning over,
  7423.  
  7424. 1580
  7425. 01:24:56,623 --> 01:24:58,286
  7426. then you scratch the
  7427. paint and it heals,
  7428.  
  7429. 1581
  7430. 01:24:58,288 --> 01:24:59,220
  7431. how long would your car last?
  7432.  
  7433. 1582
  7434. 01:24:59,222 --> 01:25:01,220
  7435. It would last forever.
  7436.  
  7437. 1583
  7438. 01:25:01,222 --> 01:25:02,620
  7439. So, something went wrong.
  7440.  
  7441. 1584
  7442. 01:25:02,622 --> 01:25:05,752
  7443. And that flaw was sin
  7444. that came into the world.
  7445.  
  7446. 1585
  7447. 01:25:05,754 --> 01:25:07,686
  7448. Death came as a result
  7449. of man's disobedience.
  7450.  
  7451. 1586
  7452. 01:25:07,688 --> 01:25:09,685
  7453. So, if evolution is true,
  7454.  
  7455. 1587
  7456. 01:25:09,687 --> 01:25:12,685
  7457. you have millions of years
  7458. of death before man sinned
  7459.  
  7460. 1588
  7461. 01:25:12,687 --> 01:25:15,054
  7462. to bring about death?
  7463.  
  7464. 1589
  7465. 01:25:15,056 --> 01:25:17,320
  7466. We really have a huge
  7467. theological problem
  7468.  
  7469. 1590
  7470. 01:25:17,322 --> 01:25:19,353
  7471. if we accept those
  7472. millions of years.
  7473.  
  7474. 1591
  7475. 01:25:19,355 --> 01:25:21,219
  7476. If we accept the
  7477. millions of years,
  7478.  
  7479. 1592
  7480. 01:25:21,221 --> 01:25:23,554
  7481. then we are accepting
  7482. millions of years
  7483.  
  7484. 1593
  7485. 01:25:23,556 --> 01:25:26,486
  7486. of death and bloodshed
  7487. and disease and violence,
  7488.  
  7489. 1594
  7490. 01:25:26,488 --> 01:25:28,686
  7491. all before man
  7492. comes on the scene.
  7493.  
  7494. 1595
  7495. 01:25:28,688 --> 01:25:31,554
  7496. But the Bible says that
  7497. God created the world
  7498.  
  7499. 1596
  7500. 01:25:31,556 --> 01:25:33,353
  7501. at the beginning and
  7502. it was very good.
  7503.  
  7504. 1597
  7505. 01:25:33,355 --> 01:25:36,719
  7506. There was no death and
  7507. disease and natural disasters.
  7508.  
  7509. 1598
  7510. 01:25:36,721 --> 01:25:41,086
  7511. It was sin that brought
  7512. that death and natural evil
  7513.  
  7514. 1599
  7515. 01:25:41,088 --> 01:25:42,487
  7516. into the world.
  7517.  
  7518. 1600
  7519. 01:25:42,489 --> 01:25:45,453
  7520. What was the
  7521. world like in the beginning?
  7522.  
  7523. 1601
  7524. 01:25:45,455 --> 01:25:49,319
  7525. The Bible describes the
  7526. early Earth as paradise,
  7527.  
  7528. 1602
  7529. 01:25:49,321 --> 01:25:54,356
  7530. a lush and beautiful
  7531. world from pole to pole,
  7532.  
  7533. 1603
  7534. 01:25:55,654 --> 01:25:58,554
  7535. a world where man, animals,
  7536. and plants of all kinds
  7537.  
  7538. 1604
  7539. 01:25:58,556 --> 01:26:01,090
  7540. lived in perfect harmony,
  7541.  
  7542. 1605
  7543. 01:26:02,423 --> 01:26:07,089
  7544. a world without sickness,
  7545. disease, pain, or death.
  7546.  
  7547. 1606
  7548. 01:26:08,155 --> 01:26:09,686
  7549. This golden age of the past,
  7550.  
  7551. 1607
  7552. 01:26:09,688 --> 01:26:12,453
  7553. reported to us
  7554. accurately in the Bible,
  7555.  
  7556. 1608
  7557. 01:26:12,455 --> 01:26:16,287
  7558. is remembered in the
  7559. legends of human cultures
  7560.  
  7561. 1609
  7562. 01:26:16,289 --> 01:26:19,486
  7563. throughout our history,
  7564. where man and animals
  7565.  
  7566. 1610
  7567. 01:26:19,488 --> 01:26:24,154
  7568. grew to be larger and live
  7569. much longer than we do today.
  7570.  
  7571. 1611
  7572. 01:26:24,156 --> 01:26:27,619
  7573. Scientific discoveries
  7574. reveal fossil representatives
  7575.  
  7576. 1612
  7577. 01:26:27,621 --> 01:26:31,153
  7578. of every major kind
  7579. of plant and animal
  7580.  
  7581. 1613
  7582. 01:26:31,155 --> 01:26:33,119
  7583. that are many times larger
  7584.  
  7585. 1614
  7586. 01:26:33,121 --> 01:26:35,620
  7587. than their present-day
  7588. counterparts.
  7589.  
  7590. 1615
  7591. 01:26:35,622 --> 01:26:39,490
  7592. Fossil insects as
  7593. large as modern dogs,
  7594.  
  7595. 1616
  7596. 01:26:41,722 --> 01:26:45,286
  7597. fossil birds with
  7598. 25-foot wingspans,
  7599.  
  7600. 1617
  7601. 01:26:45,288 --> 01:26:50,290
  7602. and fish as big as our
  7603. modern whales to name a few.
  7604.  
  7605. 1618
  7606. 01:26:53,355 --> 01:26:58,353
  7607. Today, Earth is not
  7608. paradise anymore.
  7609.  
  7610. 1619
  7611. 01:26:58,355 --> 01:27:03,290
  7612. So, we must ask, when
  7613. was paradise lost?
  7614.  
  7615. 1620
  7616. 01:27:04,156 --> 01:27:05,023
  7617. And why?
  7618.  
  7619. 1621
  7620. 01:27:06,289 --> 01:27:09,123
  7621. And will we ever see it again?
  7622.  
  7623. 1622
  7624. 01:27:30,288 --> 01:27:31,990
  7625. "So God created man

  7766. 1653
  7767. 01:32:28,688 --> 01:32:31,087

  7776. 1655
  7777. 01:32:32,622 --> 01:32:34,252
  7778. Why do we find ourselves saying,
  7779.  
  7780. 1656
  7781. 01:32:34,254 --> 01:32:36,086
  7782. "Why do bad things

  7785. 1657
  7786. 01:32:36,088 --> 01:32:37,753
  7787. And, "Why do good things

  7789.  
  7790. 1658
  7791. 01:32:37,755 --> 01:32:39,685
  7792. Genesis explains that.
  7793.  
  7794. 1659
  7795. 01:32:39,687 --> 01:32:43,154
  7796. The fall was a real
  7797. spiritual and historical event.
  7798.  
  7799. 1660
  7800. 01:32:43,156 --> 01:32:47,218
  7801. Real people in history
  7802. actually violated a law of God,
  7803.  
  7804. 1661
  7805. 01:32:47,220 --> 01:32:52,154
  7806. that caused our entire race
  7807. and the creation to fall.
  7808.  
  7809. 1662
  7810. 01:32:52,156 --> 01:32:54,486
  7811. When Adam and Eve
  7812. sinned against God,
  7813.  
  7814. 1663
  7815. 01:32:54,488 --> 01:32:56,285
  7816. God cursed the ground,
  7817. he cursed the animals,
  7818.  
  7819. 1664
  7820. 01:32:56,287 --> 01:32:57,353
  7821. and he sentenced man to die.
  7822.  
  7823. 1665
  7824. 01:32:57,355 --> 01:32:58,553
  7825. Everything changed.
  7826.  
  7827. 1666
  7828. 01:32:58,555 --> 01:32:59,820
  7829. They realized that
  7830. they were naked.
  7831.  
  7832. 1667
  7833. 01:32:59,822 --> 01:33:01,420
  7834. They realized that
  7835. they were ashamed,
  7836.  
  7837. 1668
  7838. 01:33:01,422 --> 01:33:03,353
  7839. and the first thing, they
  7840. tried to cover themselves.
  7841.  
  7842. 1669
  7843. 01:33:03,355 --> 01:33:04,753
  7844. But those coverings
  7845. were not good enough.
  7846.  
  7847. 1670
  7848. 01:33:04,755 --> 01:33:06,685
  7849. The punishment
  7850. for sin was death,
  7851.  
  7852. 1671
  7853. 01:33:06,687 --> 01:33:08,753
  7854. so the solution had
  7855. to involve death.
  7856.  
  7857. 1672
  7858. 01:33:08,755 --> 01:33:10,685
  7859. At the very beginning,
  7860.  
  7861. 1673
  7862. 01:33:10,687 --> 01:33:13,218
  7863. when Adam and Eve are
  7864. making their first mistakes
  7865.  
  7866. 1674
  7867. 01:33:13,220 --> 01:33:15,286
  7868. and shame and guilt are
  7869. coming into the equation,
  7870.  
  7871. 1675
  7872. 01:33:15,288 --> 01:33:16,553
  7873. God immediately gives
  7874. them a solution.
  7875.  
  7876. 1676
  7877. 01:33:16,555 --> 01:33:18,419
  7878. "I'm gonna send someone
  7879. who's gonna bring
  7880.  
  7881. 1677
  7882. 01:33:18,421 --> 01:33:19,520
  7883. "forgiveness to this problem.
  7884.  
  7885. 1678
  7886. 01:33:19,522 --> 01:33:21,686
  7887. "In fact, I will
  7888. immediately cover you."
  7889.  
  7890. 1679
  7891. 01:33:21,688 --> 01:33:24,153
  7892. God comes and says
  7893. he covers our shame
  7894.  
  7895. 1680
  7896. 01:33:24,155 --> 01:33:26,486
  7897. and forgives our guilt.
  7898.  
  7899. 1681
  7900. 01:33:26,488 --> 01:33:30,419
  7901. The reality of the world
  7902. is the fact that God exists,
  7903.  
  7904. 1682
  7905. 01:33:30,421 --> 01:33:34,486
  7906. and that we are separated
  7907. from God by sin.
  7908.  
  7909. 1683
  7910. 01:33:34,488 --> 01:33:36,153
  7911. We sin by nature.
  7912.  
  7913. 1684
  7914. 01:33:36,155 --> 01:33:37,453
  7915. We sin by choice.
  7916.  
  7917. 1685
  7918. 01:33:37,455 --> 01:33:38,486
  7919. You can agree with
  7920. everything I say.
  7921.  
  7922. 1686
  7923. 01:33:38,488 --> 01:33:40,120
  7924. You can believe that the world
  7925.  
  7926. 1687
  7927. 01:33:40,122 --> 01:33:41,285
  7928. is only thousands of years old
  7929.  
  7930. 1688
  7931. 01:33:41,287 --> 01:33:42,485
  7932. and you can think
  7933. that God created it.
  7934.  
  7935. 1689
  7936. 01:33:42,487 --> 01:33:44,086
  7937. But if you believe
  7938. that God exists,
  7939.  
  7940. 1690
  7941. 01:33:44,088 --> 01:33:45,352
  7942. but that's as far as it goes,
  7943. you've missed the point.
  7944.  
  7945. 1691
  7946. 01:33:45,354 --> 01:33:46,353
  7947. You looked at the billboard,
  7948.  
  7949. 1692
  7950. 01:33:46,355 --> 01:33:48,385
  7951. you've seen the ad, but
  7952. you've missed the point.
  7953.  
  7954. 1693
  7955. 01:33:48,387 --> 01:33:49,552
  7956. The point is this,
  7957.  
  7958. 1694
  7959. 01:33:49,554 --> 01:33:50,787
  7960. it's about a
  7961. relationship with him,
  7962.  
  7963. 1695
  7964. 01:33:50,789 --> 01:33:52,686
  7965. restoring that
  7966. relationship with him.
  7967.  
  7968. 1696
  7969. 01:33:52,688 --> 01:33:55,353
  7970. And the God of the
  7971. universe loved us enough
  7972.  
  7973. 1697
  7974. 01:33:55,355 --> 01:33:57,753
  7975. to say, "I wanna demonstrate
  7976. my invisible attributes
  7977.  
  7978. 1698
  7979. 01:33:57,755 --> 01:34:00,420
  7980. "everywhere, so that
  7981. everyone has evidence of me,
  7982.  
  7983. 1699
  7984. 01:34:00,422 --> 01:34:02,419
  7985. "wherever you live, in
  7986. whatever time period you live,
  7987.  
  7988. 1700
  7989. 01:34:02,421 --> 01:34:04,185
  7990. "through the telescope
  7991. or the microscope."
  7992.  
  7993. 1701
  7994. 01:34:04,187 --> 01:34:06,686
  7995. And he's calling out to you to
  7996. have a relationship with him.
  7997.  
  7998. 1702
  7999. 01:34:06,688 --> 01:34:09,153
  8000. It's not good enough
  8001. to just believe in God.
  8002.  
  8003. 1703
  8004. 01:34:09,155 --> 01:34:12,352
  8005. What good does it do if you
  8006. lead somebody to believe
  8007.  
  8008. 1704
  8009. 01:34:12,354 --> 01:34:16,352
  8010. in an intelligent designer
  8011. who is vaguely defined?
  8012.  
  8013. 1705
  8014. 01:34:16,354 --> 01:34:18,219
  8015. We need to respond
  8016. to the creator
  8017.  
  8018. 1706
  8019. 01:34:18,221 --> 01:34:22,685
  8020. and he has spoken
  8021. uniquely in his word.
  8022.  
  8023. 1707
  8024. 01:34:22,687 --> 01:34:24,285
  8025. And he has told us in the Bible
  8026.  
  8027. 1708
  8028. 01:34:24,287 --> 01:34:27,685
  8029. how we can be restored to a
  8030. right relationship with God.
  8031.  
  8032. 1709
  8033. 01:34:27,687 --> 01:34:29,619
  8034. God is indeed a God of love,
  8035.  
  8036. 1710
  8037. 01:34:29,621 --> 01:34:31,685
  8038. but he is also the
  8039. righteous judge
  8040.  
  8041. 1711
  8042. 01:34:31,687 --> 01:34:34,153
  8043. and sin must be accounted for.
  8044.  
  8045. 1712
  8046. 01:34:34,155 --> 01:34:38,152
  8047. The God of the Bible is
  8048. not only merciful and kind,
  8049.  
  8050. 1713
  8051. 01:34:38,154 --> 01:34:40,219
  8052. but he is holy and just.
  8053.  
  8054. 1714
  8055. 01:34:40,221 --> 01:34:42,620
  8056. And every time we sin,
  8057. we store up his wrath
  8058.  
  8059. 1715
  8060. 01:34:42,622 --> 01:34:44,552
  8061. that will be revealed
  8062. on the Day of Judgment.
  8063.  
  8064. 1716
  8065. 01:34:44,554 --> 01:34:46,553
  8066. God has appointed a day in
  8067. which he will judge the world
  8068.  
  8069. 1717
  8070. 01:34:46,555 --> 01:34:47,485
  8071. in righteousness.
  8072.  
  8073. 1718
  8074. 01:34:47,487 --> 01:34:48,685
  8075. You are a moral creation.
  8076.  
  8077. 1719
  8078. 01:34:48,687 --> 01:34:50,753
  8079. You have to give
  8080. an account to God
  8081.  
  8082. 1720
  8083. 01:34:50,755 --> 01:34:52,386
  8084. for every idle
  8085. word you've spoken,
  8086.  
  8087. 1721
  8088. 01:34:52,388 --> 01:34:53,685
  8089. every deed done in darkness
  8090.  
  8091. 1722
  8092. 01:34:53,687 --> 01:34:55,152
  8093. will be brought
  8094. out into the light.
  8095.  
  8096. 1723
  8097. 01:34:55,154 --> 01:34:56,619
  8098. And if that happens
  8099. on Judgment Day
  8100.  
  8101. 1724
  8102. 01:34:56,621 --> 01:34:58,086
  8103. and you're found guilty,
  8104.  
  8105. 1725
  8106. 01:34:58,088 --> 01:34:59,553
  8107. the Bible says that
  8108. you're heading for Hell.
  8109.  
  8110. 1726
  8111. 01:34:59,555 --> 01:35:01,153
  8112. But look at the flood.
  8113.  
  8114. 1727
  8115. 01:35:01,155 --> 01:35:02,720
  8116. Did everybody die in the flood?
  8117.  
  8118. 1728
  8119. 01:35:02,722 --> 01:35:04,085
  8120. No.
  8121.  
  8122. 1729
  8123. 01:35:04,087 --> 01:35:05,485
  8124. Even though there was
  8125. a judgment upon sin,
  8126.  
  8127. 1730
  8128. 01:35:05,487 --> 01:35:07,185
  8129. the lord still sent
  8130. a means of salvation.
  8131.  
  8132. 1731
  8133. 01:35:07,187 --> 01:35:09,352
  8134. You know what, that's
  8135. a lesson for us today.
  8136.  
  8137. 1732
  8138. 01:35:09,354 --> 01:35:11,185
  8139. The Flood was God's judgment.
  8140.  
  8141. 1733
  8142. 01:35:11,187 --> 01:35:13,452
  8143. But at the same that
  8144. judgment was there,
  8145.  
  8146. 1734
  8147. 01:35:13,454 --> 01:35:15,453
  8148. he provided an ark of salvation.
  8149.  
  8150. 1735
  8151. 01:35:15,455 --> 01:35:17,186
  8152. For those people in that day,
  8153.  
  8154. 1736
  8155. 01:35:17,188 --> 01:35:19,218
  8156. there was a means of escape.
  8157.  
  8158. 1737
  8159. 01:35:19,220 --> 01:35:21,685
  8160. Everybody on board
  8161. that boat was spared.
  8162.  
  8163. 1738
  8164. 01:35:21,687 --> 01:35:23,787
  8165. Those not on board
  8166. the boat perished.
  8167.  
  8168. 1739
  8169. 01:35:23,789 --> 01:35:26,219
  8170. The same in our day,
  8171.  
  8172. 1740
  8173. 01:35:26,221 --> 01:35:28,752
  8174. as God provides for us
  8175. an Ark of salvation.
  8176.  
  8177. 1741
  8178. 01:35:28,754 --> 01:35:30,553
  8179. His name is Jesus Christ.
  8180.  
  8181. 1742
  8182. 01:35:30,555 --> 01:35:33,153
  8183. God loves us and He has
  8184. provided a way of salvation,
  8185.  
  8186. 1743
  8187. 01:35:33,155 --> 01:35:35,620
  8188. to the point that he sent
  8189. his own son into the world
  8190.  
  8191. 1744
  8192. 01:35:35,622 --> 01:35:40,622
  8193. to satisfy God's condition of
  8194. death as a penalty for sin.
  8195.  
  8196. 1745
  8197. 01:35:41,755 --> 01:35:43,620
  8198. He took the penalty
  8199. of death upon himself
  8200.  
  8201. 1746
  8202. 01:35:43,622 --> 01:35:45,619
  8203. that should have been ours
  8204.  
  8205. 1747
  8206. 01:35:45,621 --> 01:35:50,086
  8207. and paid it in full,
  8208. by himself, for us.
  8209.  
  8210. 1748
  8211. 01:35:50,088 --> 01:35:52,252
  8212. He wants you to come to
  8213. him and find forgiveness.
  8214.  
  8215. 1749
  8216. 01:35:52,254 --> 01:35:54,085
  8217. That forgiveness was so costly
  8218.  
  8219. 1750
  8220. 01:35:54,087 --> 01:35:56,653
  8221. that he came to Earth and
  8222. put on matter himself,
  8223.  
  8224. 1751
  8225. 01:35:56,655 --> 01:35:58,820
  8226. and allowed Himself
  8227. to be crucified.
  8228.  
  8229. 1752
  8230. 01:35:58,822 --> 01:36:01,152
  8231. A crown to be pushed
  8232. upon his head.
  8233.  
  8234. 1753
  8235. 01:36:01,154 --> 01:36:03,753
  8236. Nails like railroad spikes
  8237. were pounded into his wrists
  8238.  
  8239. 1754
  8240. 01:36:03,755 --> 01:36:05,118
  8241. and into his feet.
  8242.  
  8243. 1755
  8244. 01:36:05,120 --> 01:36:06,353
  8245. And he did that not
  8246. because he had to.
  8247.  
  8248. 1756
  8249. 01:36:06,355 --> 01:36:08,352
  8250. He did that because
  8251. he loved you.
  8252.  
  8253. 1757
  8254. 01:36:08,354 --> 01:36:09,619
  8255. And he knew that if he didn't,
  8256.  
  8257. 1758
  8258. 01:36:09,621 --> 01:36:11,553
  8259. if there was any other way...
  8260.  
  8261. 1759
  8262. 01:36:11,555 --> 01:36:14,353
  8263. If there was any other
  8264. way, if it wasn't necessary,
  8265.  
  8266. 1760
  8267. 01:36:14,355 --> 01:36:17,185
  8268. then God would not have
  8269. put through his only son.
  8270.  
  8271. 1761
  8272. 01:36:17,187 --> 01:36:19,620
  8273. He wouldn't have
  8274. turned his back on him
  8275.  
  8276. 1762
  8277. 01:36:19,622 --> 01:36:22,086
  8278. and allowed the
  8279. sin of all humans,
  8280.  
  8281. 1763
  8282. 01:36:22,088 --> 01:36:24,053
  8283. past, present, and future,
  8284.  
  8285. 1764
  8286. 01:36:24,055 --> 01:36:27,420
  8287. to be laid upon his
  8288. son as the scapegoat.
  8289.  
  8290. 1765
  8291. 01:36:27,422 --> 01:36:28,620
  8292. He had to go to the cross.
  8293.  
  8294. 1766
  8295. 01:36:28,622 --> 01:36:29,820
  8296. He had to be crucified.
  8297.  
  8298. 1767
  8299. 01:36:29,822 --> 01:36:32,353
  8300. He had to die one of
  8301. the most grueling deaths
  8302.  
  8303. 1768
  8304. 01:36:32,355 --> 01:36:35,118
  8305. known in the history of mankind.
  8306.  
  8307. 1769
  8308. 01:36:35,120 --> 01:36:38,620
  8309. And so, Jesus died for
  8310. your sins and my sins
  8311.  
  8312. 1770
  8313. 01:36:38,622 --> 01:36:40,286
  8314. and the sins of the whole world.
  8315.  
  8316. 1771
  8317. 01:36:40,288 --> 01:36:41,620
  8318. We need Jesus Christ.
  8319.  
  8320. 1772
  8321. 01:36:41,622 --> 01:36:45,153
  8322. He is the solution to
  8323. the problem of sin.
  8324.  
  8325. 1773
  8326. 01:36:45,155 --> 01:36:46,753
  8327. That is indeed the gospel.
  8328.  
  8329. 1774
  8330. 01:36:46,755 --> 01:36:49,153
  8331. That is indeed the good news.
  8332.  
  8333. 1775
  8334. 01:36:49,155 --> 01:36:50,486
  8335. But it's only good news
  8336.  
  8337. 1776
  8338. 01:36:50,488 --> 01:36:53,352
  8339. because it's based on
  8340. the bad news in Genesis
  8341.  
  8342. 1777
  8343. 01:36:53,354 --> 01:36:55,152
  8344. because of what
  8345. Adam and Eve did.
  8346.  
  8347. 1778
  8348. 01:36:55,154 --> 01:36:57,153
  8349. And because we're all one race,
  8350.  
  8351. 1779
  8352. 01:36:57,155 --> 01:36:58,353
  8353. because we're all
  8354. descendants of them,
  8355.  
  8356. 1780
  8357. 01:36:58,355 --> 01:37:02,153
  8358. we're all born with that sin
  8359. nature, that tendency to sin.
  8360.  
  8361. 1781
  8362. 01:37:02,155 --> 01:37:04,519
  8363. If there wasn't
  8364. an original sin,
  8365.  
  8366. 1782
  8367. 01:37:04,521 --> 01:37:08,152
  8368. if we aren't born into sin
  8369. and in need of a savior,
  8370.  
  8371. 1783
  8372. 01:37:08,154 --> 01:37:09,419
  8373. if we are born okay,
  8374.  
  8375. 1784
  8376. 01:37:09,421 --> 01:37:11,520
  8377. then maybe we could just be good
  8378.  
  8379. 1785
  8380. 01:37:11,522 --> 01:37:13,553
  8381. and wouldn't need
  8382. Jesus to die for us.
  8383.  
  8384. 1786
  8385. 01:37:13,555 --> 01:37:15,218
  8386. But that's just not reality.
  8387.  
  8388. 1787
  8389. 01:37:15,220 --> 01:37:16,552
  8390. It's not good theology.
  8391.  
  8392. 1788
  8393. 01:37:16,554 --> 01:37:17,553
  8394. It isn't even good logic.
  8395.  
  8396. 1789
  8397. 01:37:17,555 --> 01:37:20,619
  8398. Just as God made one
  8399. man who brought death,
  8400.  
  8401. 1790
  8402. 01:37:20,621 --> 01:37:22,286
  8403. Jesus is the new
  8404. man who brings life.
  8405.  
  8406. 1791
  8407. 01:37:22,288 --> 01:37:24,352
  8408. Just as there was an
  8409. ark, and in that ark
  8410.  
  8411. 1792
  8412. 01:37:24,354 --> 01:37:26,286
  8413. you find that there's one way in
  8414.  
  8415. 1793
  8416. 01:37:26,288 --> 01:37:28,619
  8417. and that one way is
  8418. the way of deliverance
  8419.  
  8420. 1794
  8421. 01:37:28,621 --> 01:37:30,086
  8422. that will save
  8423. you from judgment.
  8424.  
  8425. 1795
  8426. 01:37:30,088 --> 01:37:31,553
  8427. And so too, Jesus
  8428. comes and says,
  8429.  
  8430. 1796
  8431. 01:37:31,555 --> 01:37:33,352
  8432. "I am the way and the
  8433. truth and the life.
  8434.  
  8435. 1797
  8436. 01:37:33,354 --> 01:37:35,652
  8437. "And by coming to me, there
  8438. is a future judgment coming,
  8439.  
  8440. 1798
  8441. 01:37:35,654 --> 01:37:37,552
  8442. "But I have made a way
  8443. to rescue you from that."
  8444.  
  8445. 1799
  8446. 01:37:37,554 --> 01:37:39,286
  8447. Just as Abraham had
  8448. only one begotten son
  8449.  
  8450. 1800
  8451. 01:37:39,288 --> 01:37:41,419
  8452. whom he was willing
  8453. to sacrifice,
  8454.  
  8455. 1801
  8456. 01:37:41,421 --> 01:37:43,153
  8457. Jesus is the only begotten son
  8458.  
  8459. 1802
  8460. 01:37:43,155 --> 01:37:44,420
  8461. that our heavenly father
  8462. was willing to sacrifice.
  8463.  
  8464. 1803
  8465. 01:37:44,422 --> 01:37:47,086
  8466. And then there's Joseph
  8467. who was rejected,
  8468.  
  8469. 1804
  8470. 01:37:47,088 --> 01:37:49,419
  8471. thrown into the pit,
  8472. thought to be dead,
  8473.  
  8474. 1805
  8475. 01:37:49,421 --> 01:37:50,753
  8476. later found resurrected.
  8477.  
  8478. 1806
  8479. 01:37:50,755 --> 01:37:52,420
  8480. Sounds a lot like someone
  8481. in the New Testament!
  8482.  
  8483. 1807
  8484. 01:37:52,422 --> 01:37:53,620
  8485. And then we move into the Exodus
  8486.  
  8487. 1808
  8488. 01:37:53,622 --> 01:37:55,186
  8489. and we see that he is
  8490. the ultimate Deliverer,
  8491.  
  8492. 1809
  8493. 01:37:55,188 --> 01:37:56,219
  8494. He's the ultimate Passover,
  8495.  
  8496. 1810
  8497. 01:37:56,221 --> 01:37:57,620
  8498. he's the ultimate lawgiver.
  8499.  
  8500. 1811
  8501. 01:37:57,622 --> 01:38:00,453
  8502. Jesus is all over Genesis
  8503.  
  8504. 1812
  8505. 01:38:00,455 --> 01:38:02,085
  8506. and the deeper you look into it,
  8507.  
  8508. 1813
  8509. 01:38:02,087 --> 01:38:04,153
  8510. the more you find
  8511. that the whole book
  8512.  
  8513. 1814
  8514. 01:38:04,155 --> 01:38:05,485
  8515. points directly to him.
  8516.  
  8517. 1815
  8518. 01:38:05,487 --> 01:38:07,486
  8519. And so right here in
  8520. Genesis, chapter one,
  8521.  
  8522. 1816
  8523. 01:38:07,488 --> 01:38:10,486
  8524. it's all about Jesus Christ.
  8525.  
  8526. 1817
  8527. 01:38:10,488 --> 01:38:12,652
  8528. We call Jesus Christ
  8529. himself the word.
  8530.  
  8531. 1818
  8532. 01:38:12,654 --> 01:38:14,420
  8533. He is the word of God.
  8534.  
  8535. 1819
  8536. 01:38:14,422 --> 01:38:16,553
  8537. He is the way by
  8538. which we know God.
  8539.  
  8540. 1820
  8541. 01:38:16,555 --> 01:38:19,653
  8542. Who has ever had his
  8543. name used as a cuss word?
  8544.  
  8545. 1821
  8546. 01:38:19,655 --> 01:38:22,419
  8547. Nobody, except Jesus Christ.
  8548.  
  8549. 1822
  8550. 01:38:22,421 --> 01:38:24,085
  8551. He said, "The world hates me
  8552.  
  8553. 1823
  8554. 01:38:24,087 --> 01:38:28,053
  8555. "because I testify of its
  8556. deeds, that they are evil."
  8557.  
  8558. 1824
  8559. 01:38:28,055 --> 01:38:29,585
  8560. And so, we use his
  8561. name in blasphemy,
  8562.  
  8563. 1825
  8564. 01:38:29,587 --> 01:38:31,218
  8565. the name that is
  8566. above all names.
  8567.  
  8568. 1826
  8569. 01:38:31,220 --> 01:38:32,586
  8570. We lust, we lie, we steal.
  8571.  
  8572. 1827
  8573. 01:38:32,588 --> 01:38:34,686
  8574. That's why we have suffering,
  8575. disease, pain, and death.
  8576.  
  8577. 1828
  8578. 01:38:34,688 --> 01:38:37,553
  8579. But, it gives great hope for
  8580. this fallen creations in death
  8581.  
  8582. 1829
  8583. 01:38:37,555 --> 01:38:41,219
  8584. that God invaded this
  8585. world and through the cross
  8586.  
  8587. 1830
  8588. 01:38:41,221 --> 01:38:44,086
  8589. opened up the doors of
  8590. everlasting life for humanity.
  8591.  
  8592. 1831
  8593. 01:38:44,088 --> 01:38:46,786
  8594. Jesus Christ is the son
  8595. of God who is infinite.
  8596.  
  8597. 1832
  8598. 01:38:46,788 --> 01:38:50,353
  8599. He became a man and he died
  8600. the infinite punishment
  8601.  
  8602. 1833
  8603. 01:38:50,355 --> 01:38:51,553
  8604. that we all deserve.
  8605.  
  8606. 1834
  8607. 01:38:51,555 --> 01:38:52,819
  8608. The infinite son took
  8609. the infinite punishment
  8610.  
  8611. 1835
  8612. 01:38:52,821 --> 01:38:54,353
  8613. from the infinite father,
  8614.  
  8615. 1836
  8616. 01:38:54,355 --> 01:38:56,085
  8617. and that satisfied
  8618. the wrath of God.
  8619.  
  8620. 1837
  8621. 01:38:56,087 --> 01:38:59,286
  8622. And the Lord offers the free
  8623. gift of salvation as a result.
  8624.  
  8625. 1838
  8626. 01:38:59,288 --> 01:39:00,452
  8627. And that's the God who I love.
  8628.  
  8629. 1839
  8630. 01:39:00,454 --> 01:39:01,819
  8631. That's the God whom
  8632. I want to know.
  8633.  
  8634. 1840
  8635. 01:39:01,821 --> 01:39:03,685
  8636. And I want to know him
  8637. because he loved me enough
  8638.  
  8639. 1841
  8640. 01:39:03,687 --> 01:39:05,218
  8641. not just to sort of
  8642. watch from a distance
  8643.  
  8644. 1842
  8645. 01:39:05,220 --> 01:39:06,453
  8646. and love everybody.
  8647.  
  8648. 1843
  8649. 01:39:06,455 --> 01:39:08,185
  8650. He loved me enough
  8651. to get in the game
  8652.  
  8653. 1844
  8654. 01:39:08,187 --> 01:39:09,353
  8655. and to die in my behalf.
  8656.  
  8657. 1845
  8658. 01:39:09,355 --> 01:39:11,218
  8659. And that is the
  8660. story of the Bible.
  8661.  
  8662. 1846
  8663. 01:39:11,220 --> 01:39:13,553
  8664. Jesus Christ, who
  8665. walked the Earth as a man,
  8666.  
  8667. 1847
  8668. 01:39:13,555 --> 01:39:15,819
  8669. who loved us enough
  8670. to take upon himself
  8671.  
  8672. 1848
  8673. 01:39:15,821 --> 01:39:18,753
  8674. our punishment, to go to
  8675. the cross, to taste death,
  8676.  
  8677. 1849
  8678. 01:39:18,755 --> 01:39:20,153
  8679. to shed his blood
  8680.  
  8681. 1850
  8682. 01:39:20,155 --> 01:39:22,252
  8683. that we could be with
  8684. him in heaven forever.
  8685.  
  8686. 1851
  8687. 01:39:22,254 --> 01:39:25,619
  8688. Those who reject him spend
  8689. eternity separated from God.
  8690.  
  8691. 1852
  8692. 01:39:25,621 --> 01:39:28,386
  8693. What a horror
  8694. that any human being
  8695.  
  8696. 1853
  8697. 01:39:28,388 --> 01:39:31,420
  8698. could end up in a terrible
  8699. place, damned in Hell.
  8700.  
  8701. 1854
  8702. 01:39:31,422 --> 01:39:33,552
  8703. And so, we plead
  8704. with people and say,
  8705.  
  8706. 1855
  8707. 01:39:33,554 --> 01:39:35,318
  8708. "Look, God is rich in mercy
  8709.  
  8710. 1856
  8711. 01:39:35,320 --> 01:39:37,753
  8712. "and He provided a
  8713. savior in Jesus Christ!
  8714.  
  8715. 1857
  8716. 01:39:37,755 --> 01:39:41,553
  8717. "God became a human being and
  8718. suffered and died on a cross
  8719.  
  8720. 1858
  8721. 01:39:41,555 --> 01:39:43,453
  8722. "to take the punishment
  8723. for the sin of the world.
  8724.  
  8725. 1859
  8726. 01:39:43,455 --> 01:39:46,485
  8727. "We broke God's law and
  8728. Jesus paid our fine."
  8729.  
  8730. 1860
  8731. 01:39:46,487 --> 01:39:47,685
  8732. It's as simple as that.
  8733.  
  8734. 1861
  8735. 01:39:47,687 --> 01:39:49,785
  8736. If someone pays your
  8737. fine, the judge can say,
  8738.  
  8739. 1862
  8740. 01:39:49,787 --> 01:39:50,819
  8741. "You're out of here.
  8742.  
  8743. 1863
  8744. 01:39:50,821 --> 01:39:52,485
  8745. "Your case is dismissed!"
  8746.  
  8747. 1864
  8748. 01:39:52,487 --> 01:39:54,352
  8749. That is what God can
  8750. do for you and I.
  8751.  
  8752. 1865
  8753. 01:39:54,354 --> 01:39:56,619
  8754. Our sins can be washed away!
  8755.  
  8756. 1866
  8757. 01:39:56,621 --> 01:39:58,420
  8758. God can commute
  8759. our death sentence
  8760.  
  8761. 1867
  8762. 01:39:58,422 --> 01:40:00,552
  8763. and let us live forever
  8764.  
  8765. 1868
  8766. 01:40:00,554 --> 01:40:02,452
  8767. because of the suffering,
  8768. death, and the resurrection
  8769.  
  8770. 1869
  8771. 01:40:02,454 --> 01:40:03,686
  8772. of Jesus Christ.
  8773.  
  8774. 1870
  8775. 01:40:03,688 --> 01:40:05,586
  8776. What we are commanded to
  8777. do is repent of our sins
  8778.  
  8779. 1871
  8780. 01:40:05,588 --> 01:40:08,585
  8781. and trust alone in Jesus.
