Creation science taught in public school
On Thursday, February 10th, we were invited to teach a lecture on the topic “Creation or Evolution? What does science confirm?” in the “Sofia Kovalevskaya” lyceum, in Cupcini.
The presentation was taught by Svetlana Sanduleac. Students of the twelfth grade attended the lesson. The lecture was held in a friendly and warm atmosphere, contrary to the view that ‘young people do not want to listen’. The students listened and reflected on the provided information. Despite the fact that there are are many parts to this debate, we talked only about three:
1) Origin of the Universe. Evolution (Big Bang): “About 13-15 billion years ago, a burning point occurred…”. Where did the matter that formed this point come from? Where did the space for the point come from? Where did the energy for the explosion come from? Remember, evolution teaches that there is no supernatural, there are no miracles, there is no God. However, can we call it natural process when ‘something comes from nothing’ ? Some evolutionists honestly admit that they have a theory without a beginning.
2) Origin of life. The chance for a random occurrence of single living cells is 1 in 10 to the 40 000th power. For scientists, that is almost impossible. This supports Romans 1:20: For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
3) Observed changes in living organisms do not prove evolution from a protozoa to man, on the contrary, the evidence leads to a deterioration of the genes from generation to generation.
Natural selection of genetic information leads to loss of genetic diversity. Mutations are mistakes in the process of copying information from generation to generation, and they is occurring to the detriment of a biological organism. Mutations can not lead to an increase of information and functional complexity.
At the end of the lesson, we concluded that natural selection and mutation do not add information necessary for the emergence of more complex organisms. We hope and plan to do more lessons of this type in schools, so please pray for God to give us the opportunity to do so.
