Creation versus evolution
We all have a free choice of what we want to believe. But the truth is still the truth, even if no one believes it. A lie is still a lie even if everyone believes it.
Similarly, Just because we cannot see something does not mean that it is not there.
The argument of creation versus evolution is not just a debate on theories, it is an argument between followers of the Scriptures and the followers of the world. Evolutionary theory is an alternative to creation, it undermines the work and Word of the Father, and we know who is trying to undermine this. Anyone who has studied genetics should be aware that evolution works to a point, but it does not explain many of the complexities that exist or the sudden "jump" in capability between "evolving" species with no evident intermediary.
Using current scientific teaching, there are two forms of change within a species. These forms follow a simialr process to a point.
Adaption is the term used to define survival of the fittest. Breeding of survivors who are the most suitable to the environment that they live in increases the capability of a species, and may bring about change within the species. While adaption improves the capability of a species, it does not on its own create a new species as this would require significant change to genetic coding. Adaption is clearly evident and happens all of the time. Adaption is also called genetic selection or selective breeding. There is ample archaeological evidence that shows us that adaption occurs, we can readily observe over time change within a species.
Evolution is the term used to define a species becoming a new species. The debate of creation versus evolution depends on evolution having occurred as this is the only way that evolutionists can claim that has led to the life forms we have today. Evolutionary theorists believe that sufficient adaption has occurred to generate a genetic sequence that is a new species through a very long process of adaption. The process of adaption is so slow, that evolutionists have to also believe that the earth is sufficiently old enough for that new species to develop, and that is billions of years. Evolutionists believe that the earliest life form started with bacteria, that over billions of years have evolved into life forms with consciousness that we have today.
There is no evidence that adaption creates a new species, however, evolutionary theory depends on new species appearing as without this, evolution is not occurring. If evolution has occurred, some form of an intermediate adapted examples of a new species should be evident to show us that evolution has occurred. There is ample evidence to show us that adaption has occurred, but he fact that there is no evidence for evolution shows without doubt that evolution itself no more than an unproven theory.
There is psychology term called “cognitive bias”. Cognitive biases are unconscious patterns of thinking that can distort our perception of reality and lead us to make inaccurate judgments or decisions. There are a range of bias that falls under this heading:
Confirmation bias: This is the tendency to search for, interpret, or remember information in a way that confirms pre-existing beliefs or hypotheses. For example, someone who believes that all politicians are corrupt may only pay attention to news stories that reinforce that belief, and ignore evidence to the contrary
Anchoring bias: This is the tendency to rely too heavily on the first piece of information encountered when making decisions. For example, a person may overvalue the initial price of a product, even if that price is not reasonable or accurate.
Availability bias: This is the tendency to overestimate the likelihood of events based on how easily they come to mind. For example, after hearing about a plane crash, someone may become afraid of flying, even though statistically, driving is more dangerous
Hindsight bias: This is the tendency to believe that an event was predictable or inevitable after it has occurred, and to exaggerate one's ability to have predicted it. For example, someone may say "I knew that was going to happen!" after an unexpected event, even if they did not actually predict it beforehand.
The halo effect: This is the tendency to judge someone or something positively based on one positive trait or characteristic. For example, someone may assume that a celebrity who is attractive and talented must also be a good person.
These are just a few examples of cognitive biases that can affect our thinking and decision-making. It's important to be aware of these biases and work to overcome them in order to make more accurate and rational decisions.
It is important to be aware of these biases and to actively work to overcome them, especially in situations where important decisions are being made, such as your Salvation. By being mindful of our own cognitive biases and seeking the truth through the Set Apart Spirit,
Cognitive bias also explains why people will believe that an approved theory such as evolution is accepted despite clearly missing evidence.
Examples of cognitive bias include:
Only paying attention to information that confirms beliefs about issues, particularly true for church doctrine
Choosing news sources that present stories that support your views
Refusing to listen to the opposing side, again particularly true of church doctrine
Not considering all of the facts in a logical and rational manner, again particularly true of church doctrine.
Seeking to confirm existing opinions helps limit mental resources we need to use to make decisions. It also helps protect self-esteem by making people feel that their beliefs are accurate.
People on two sides of a debate can listen to the same story and walk away with different interpretations that they feel validates their existing point of view. This is indicative that the confirmation bias is working to "bias" their opinions.
The problem with this is that confirmation bias using misinformation that has been learned, reinforces the learning of more misinformation instead of researching the truth. It is easier to learn new information that agrees with a confirmation bias, than it is to understand the reason why that confirmation bias is wrong. Confirmation bias can lead to inaccurate understanding, poor choices and even the dissemination of inaccurate opinions or teaching.
Our world education system is a good example of confirmation bias where evolutionary theory is taught as being the only alternative to the development of the universe and life as we know it. This is despite the evidence that supports creation and the lack of evidence supporting evolution.
Dating techniques used to support evolutionary theory are flawed but are ignored as it supports a very old earth and hence evolutionary theory – this is cognitive bias. Despite the wealth of archaeological evidence available, it is important to understand that, from the perspective of observational science, no one can prove absolutely how young (or old) the universe is. Only the Father can attest to the age of the universe as he was the only one that saw it.
Educational institutions and Governments mandate the teaching of evolutionary theory despite the challenges and the flaws, and with no debate on different theories. There is a single minded acceptance that only evolution occurred. This is our enemies way to mask and discount the Fathers creation. Education shapes people’s minds by creating a false reality and prevents people comprehending the truth. Worse, educational institutions and Governments also actively prevent the teaching of creation.
There is only one entity that has an interest in ensuring that you do not find the truth, and that entity’s interest is certainly not in your best interests.
Don’t be misled, question the teaching you have received. What you have been taught biases your understanding and prevents you from understanding both the simplicity of the Fathers salvation plan for mankind, and the integrity of the Fathers word. What you are being taught may lead you further from the Fathers Word every day that you keep your mind closed.
But cognitive biases go deeper within denominations. It explains how individuals within a denomination readily accept the teaching of the denomination even when it contradicts Scripture.
In order for us to understand the Scriptures and the Fathers Salvation Plan, we need to release our own cognitive biases, and allow the Set-Apart Spirit to teach us the Fathers true meaning within His Word.
If you are a believer, but consider that th3e Scriptures support evolution, consider the words of Paul in Romans 1:25
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible qualities have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, both His everlasting power and Mightiness, for them to be without excuse,
Paul was directly referring to the Father being the creator, as evolution does not require a creator, the Scriptures do not support evolution.
