Blind as a bat

“The whole objective to originate millions of years was to erase the possibility of God’s powerful existence.”

While observing the “Evolutionary Tree”, I find the entire composition of theory quite amusing. Presenting the very proposition that mankind was an evolution, (yuck which gradually – over millions of years – transformed from muck all out of luck) wasn’t about to gain my acceptance! I found myself in the quandary as to why the theory of evolution existed, and marveled at its popular acceptance by the public!

When using an antonym for evolution, you automatically think Creation; however, many Christian Creationists accept uniformitarian ideas brought about by godless individuals, (like James Hutton, and Charles Lyell.) They originated and popularized the idea that the natural processes we see today is key to understanding the geological changes in earth’s structure in the past: (“The Present it the key to the past”) This theory resulted in the belief of millions of years of slow gradual processes, and disbelief in global catastrophes. (such as Noah’s Flood)

Evolutionary ideas, cannot, and will never, harmonize with the Creation of the Bible! The two cannot co-exist without conflict! No matter the endeavor to intertwine the two belief systems, it is an impossible attempt! Believing that these can coincide without contradiction is ludicrous, and blasphemous to God and the foundation of Creationism!

It brings to mind the blind bat, and its prey: the tiger moth.

The blind bat – or is it?

Being blind, the bat relies solely on *echolocation for guidance, communication, and physical survival. (*high pitched sound waves it extracts unheard by human ears)

When hunting for food, the bat will make high pitched clicking sounds, This sound will bounce back from its object, and return to the bat in the same fashion that a dolphin uses when sounding for direction. This tells the bat how near or far he is to the cavern wall, or object he is hunting. The closer the bat advances the faster the clicking noise increases to insure the distance between the object and itself.

These high pitched frequencies alert the tiger moth. In order to evade its predator, the moth tries to confuse the bat with multiple flips, barrel-rolls, etc. Anything to lose the bat intending to inflict destruction! Its first tactic is to get the bat to lose it’s direction.

If unsuccessful in its attempts, the moth resorts to imitating the bat with similar clicking noises of its own in intent to throw the bat off its target. It may not sound exactly like that of the bat, but closely enough that the bat immediately is convinced that he has mistakenly taken a bat for a moth!

The end result: the bat resigns its mission: You cannot destroy a tiger moth if you are convinced it is a bat!

According to God’s Word, we are to contend for what is right as Christian believers:

…. ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3

We are told to avoid those contrary to the doctrines we have been taught from God’s Word:

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. Romans 16:17

Pastors also must make it a personal responsibility to hush the falsehood indoctrinating our families:

….. that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers…..Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert

whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake….Wherefore rebuke them sharply,

that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. (Taken From Titus 1:9-14)

How is it possible to stand against falsehood if we are confused and deceived by the belief system of evolutionary methods and ideas?

We are mistaking a tiger moth for a bat in the evolutionary theory, especially that of millions of years:This idea is not only anti-Biblical, it is anti-God simply for the following reasons:

Disproof of Millions of years:

  1. Genealogy.
    1. Mankind was created about about 5.000 years ago.
      • Follows the chronology of Biblical account of man’s origin
      • Follows Documentation throughout history of man’s written records.
  2. Death (Gen. 2:17)
    1. Originated by the first man and woman created: (Romans 5:12)
      • Is the consequential result of Adam and Eve’s sin (1Cor.15:22 Rom. 5:17-18) (Archeology)
      • The life of Adam and Eve: Approx. 5.000 years . (Genealogy)
      • Things progressively worsen (Matthew 6:191 / 9:16) (2nd Law of Thermodynamics)
  3. Noah’s Flood. (Genesis 6-8)
    1. God’s Judgment
      • All living things outside the ark were rapidly killed by water: (Gen.7:18-23) (Rapid Fossilization)
      • Was a global catastrophe: (Genesis 6:7, 13, 7:17-24/2 Peter 3:6) (Anti-Uniformity)
      • Deformity of Geologic strata due to oceanic heat vents.(Gen. 7:11, 7:19-20) (Geologic Deformity)
      • Mountains and high hills transformed by water. (Genesis 7:19-20) (Sedimentary Layers)
  4. Creation (Gen. 1-2)
    1. A Short Miraculous Event
      • Special Creation by God himself: (Genesis 1:1) (Origin)
      • Literally 6 days in creating: (Genesis1:5,1:8,1:13,1:19,1:23) (Special Design)
      • Perfect atmosphere with no sin. (Romans 5:12) (Perfect Design)
      • Animals created by distinct kinds (Gen. 1:21, 1:25) (Distinct Separation of kinds)

The whole objective to originate millions of years was to erase the possibility of God’s powerful existence.

The very idea that millions of years is portrayed anywhere in scripture, is greatly mistaking the moth for the bat, and trying to mix the two!

The result? Heresy. False Doctrine, and anti-Biblical world views that originated from ungodly men who intended to throw out the Divine God by an atheistic theory! The end result is a watered down faith which will affect our next generation who will soon follow Darwin’s road to doubting God completely and turning to a godless doctrine to the destruction of their souls!

Lengthy periods in explanation to anything created is found no where throughout scripture.

Christians, who are prone to believe that “Evolutionary” explanations of the origins of our earth can coincide in our beliefs of Creationism, could not be more mistaken than this bat! The consequence is leaving the tiger moth to deceive and confuse other bats!

Just as the bat relies upon its echolocation to direct its way, we should use God’s Holy Word to direct us away from things that could harm us and direct us toward the things we should destroy.

Just as the moth confused and deceived the bat, we, as Christians should not accept the deceiving teachings of evolution, leaving generations to come affected by its contents. We must realize that the belief itself is spiritually paralyzing we as God’s people, and should endeavor to do all in our power to silence its teachings by the truth of God’s Word.

If these tactics of confusion, and imitation are acceptable, who shall stand in the gap against their methods of indoctrination: influencing our children?

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20

  1. The bat and tiger moth is a good illustration and The Disproof of Millions of Years section is really good too.
