CREATION OF THE HEAVENS AND PLANET EARTH
MUSIC / INTRO
For the purpose of disclosure, let me assert that I am a graduate engineer. I received my B.S. in Industrial Engineering before attending 11 other colleges and universities. At the first institution I was the only student to ever receive a grade of 100 for the semester in the field of Electro Chemistry (which is by no means an easy subject – it is NOT even taught at many schools of higher learning). During one of the different psychology classes I have taken my I.Q. was ascertained to be 165, which is well above the floor of genius level.
I am by no means brilliant, but I do understand certain laws of physics and science, and have worked in those areas, writing my thesis in a chemical laboratory, and working consistently in research and development using instruments such as the Atom Counter and Hull Cell, as well as the usual instrumentation for determining qualitative and quantitative analyses.
My views are based – not from the standpoint of one who believes the Bible is the Word of God (although I do) – but from the standpoint of one who has studied and worked in the fields of science and engineering. As an engineer I could no more believe in the theory of evolution than the cow jumping over the moon. Not only is there NO evidence that evolution has ever taken place, but there is solid evidence that evolution could NEVER take place.
Evolution could not even be possible because it violates both the First and Second Law of Thermodynamics. Let me explain:
Second Law of Thermodynamics -
The Second Law of Thermodynamics is also known as the Entropy Principle, which is one of the most universal and fixed laws known to science. “There is a general natural tendency of all observed systems to go from order to disorder, reflecting dissipation of energy available for future transformation—the law of increasing entropy."
All processes in the universe are basically energy conversion. Thermodynamics is a compound of two Greek words, therme ("heat") and dunamis ("power"). It is the science of heat energy (or, heat power) and its conversion to other forms of energy. Everything that exists in the universe is some form of energy, and everything that happens is a type or form of energy conversion. With this in mind, let us discuss the First Law of Thermodynamics.
First Law of Thermodynamics -
One of the best definitions for the First Law is from Isaac Asimov: "In the Game of Energy and Thermodynamics You Can’t Break Even," Smithsonian Institute Journal:
“Energy can be transferred from one place to another, or transformed from one form to another, but it [energy]can be neither created nor destroyed. Or, we can put it another way: The total quantity of energy in the universe is constant. When the total quantity of something does not change, we say that it is conserved. The two statements given above, then, are two ways of expressing 'the law of conservation of energy.' This law is considered the most powerful and most fundamental generalization about the universe that scientists have ever been able to make.”
Before we go on, let's consider something Asimov said. “Energy … can be neither created nor destroyed.” Energy can NOT be created because God is the only One Who can create energy and He ceased creative process in the universe after the first six days. That is the purpose for the Sabbath: to rest from our labor, to receive BLESSING from God, and to reflect on the creative glory and goodness of God. (Torah: Genesis 2:3) On the other hand, energy can NOT be destroyed because God upholds all things in creation by the Word of His power (Hebrews 1:3).
In the area of quantum physics, time and relationship is of primal importance. Many theories relating to time have been developed over the years. Probably the most famous is that developed by Albert Einstein: the theory of relativity.
I read his work as a young boy. The derived formula "E = mc2," or "energy equals mass times the velocity of light squared," was praised for decades as the frontier of thought in this area; however, recent scientific postulation and research has leaned toward discrediting part, if not all, of this theory.
Even in the most advanced area of quantum physics today, it is known that the universe at its core is some sort of relationship of energy that we can NOT control. In the area of string theory today, the comparison picture (relational size and properties) is this: the universe is to the earth, as the earth is to an atom, as an atom is to a “string” (that is, a string in string theory). The issue is not the big-ness or the out-ness … or the small-ness or the in-ness … but the real issue is multiple dimensions of reality. In other words, not “either - or” but “yes – and.” String theorists now say they can prove eleven (11) dimensions of reality, and maybe 12 or 13.
The perspective from which – or, in which –we look at things makes a big difference in our world view … and our universe view … and ultimately in our eternal view. If we look at things in a dream world, as the evolutionist does (even in our human three-dimensional perspective), where there is NO sustainable evidence – from the past or present – we are saying willingly in our heart (and NOT our mind) - “There is NO God.” At least, NOT the Creator God. "The fool has said in his heart, 'There is NO God.'” (Psalm 14:1)
The present underpinning of the universe is conservation of energy, not creation. No creation in the universe has taken place since the first six days. The evolutionist has NO valid answer to the following questions:
Where did all the energy come from in the first place (Who started everything); and,
Why is energy constant (being conserved)?
The First Law of Thermodynamics is a strong scientific testimony against evolution because it proves constancy and stability in the universe. However, the Second Law of Thermodynamics is even more potent in that it completely obliterates any rationale for evolutionary thinking. R.B. Lindsay, in his article in American Scientist, titled, “Entropy Consumption and Values in Physical Science,” states:
"It is in the transformation process that Nature appears to exact a penalty and this is where the second principle makes its appearance. For every naturally occurring transformation of energy is accompanied, somewhere, by a loss in the availability of energy for the future performance of work."
In any energy conversion there is an amount of energy which becomes UNavailable for subsequent processes or work. It will be nonrecoverable. The late Henry Morris, PhD., states this succinctly:
“Thus, the Second Law proves, as certainly as science can prove anything whatever, that the universe had a beginning. Similarly, the First Law shows that the universe could not have begun itself. The total quantity of energy in the universe is a constant, but the quantity of available energy is decreasing. Therefore, as we go backward in time, the available energy would have been progressively greater until, finally, we would reach the beginning point, where available energy equaled total energy. Time could go back no further than this. At this point both energy and time must have come into existence. Since energy could not create itself, the most scientific and logical conclusion to which we could possibly come is that: 'In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.'”
Isaac Asimov stated, “The universe is constantly getting more disorderly.” All real processes – chemical, physical, biological, geological – go from order to disorder: the exact opposite of evolutionary theory.
When something is new (whether it be a life form or a manufactured object) it takes on the condition of a closed state. A baby formed in the life of its mother, when it exits the womb, is an example of this: it grows older and eventually dies. A new building is another example: through time, corrosion, decay, weathering, and stress take their toll. Everything deteriorates by itself. There are NO observable processes of development from a lower order to a higher order or from disorder to order.
In six literal 24 hour days, the LORD God made the heavens and the Planet Earth. God is God. He did NOT need the help of so called evolutionary processes – millions or billions of years between each Day of Creation – to help Him create. God could have created the heavens and the Planet Earth in six nanoseconds if He had wanted to. He gave us a practical and orderly example that we could relate to: work six days and rest one.
That creation is exactly that time period is verified in the Ten Commandments (Torah: Exodus Chapter 20):
“Remember the sabbath day to keep it
holy. Six days shall you labor, and do all
But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD your God;
In it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor the stranger that is within your gates;
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: Wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and made it holy.”
Messiah Yeshua validated the CREATION account in the Torah, referring to Genesis: “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female;“ and by his statement, “The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” (Brit Chadashah: Mark 10:6, Matthew 19:4-6, Mark 2:27)
The main reason that many people who claim to know the LORD and who are conservative or orthodox Jews, or conservative or orthodox Christians, swing toward evolutionary creationism is because they are ashamed to take a stand for a literal six day 24 hour day creation week. They feel they will be laughed at by friends, colleagues, and others. They are bowing at the throne of Darwin and the throne of political correctness which is very dangerous. Can you claim to be a follower of The Messiah but NOT believe in a literal interpretation of the very Creation account that Yeshua validated?!
I trust this teaching has helped you.
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
