Creation vs Evolution

More than just atoms banging around,
order and beauty and patterns abound.
emotions and feelings, the human mind,
can’t be explained without being designed.
The simplest of atoms is a mystery to man;
and a cell is not simple, but a factory grand.
DNA isn’t random it holds vital instruction;
which defines a species and its reproduction.
A cat will never give birth to a dog;
and a prince will not emerge from a frog;
Each kind is unique it can’t interbreed,
Evolution is wrong! When will you concede.
Millions or Billions of years it’s the same.
No length can accomplish evolution’s claim.
Even eternity is not enough time,
to generate man from primordial slime.
You can’t have a heart beating alone,
or A piece of liver evolve on its own.
Evolution of life has no defence,
Its all or its nothing, or it doesn’t make sense.
Geology shows no transitional forms.
The “missing Links” were found to be false.
Examining the evidence there is but one choice.
All things cry “design” with a unified voice1.
Birds migrate to a distant land.
Animals know when danger’s at hand.
Bees build hives with incredible skill,
Life is much more than material.
No big bang but a spoken command,
brought forth the sky, the sea and the land.
God created all in six literal days2.
Men deny to avoid giving Him praise.
Seashells scattered on mountain peaks
and fossils of sea creatures far from the beach.
Evidence of water and torrents of mud,
are telltale signs of a global flood.
The Bible told us that the earth was round8,
long before Columbus set sail.
History reveals through providence profound,
It continues to confirm, God’s Word will prevail.
He tells us our origin, how we were made.
He tells us we wilfully disobeyed.
He promised a saviour, His birth prophesied,
so that when He came he’d be recognized.
Lord Jesus Christ Fulfilled every prediction,
From the place of His birth to His crucifixion.
His manner of life, the words He would say,
Even His resurrection on the third day9.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
