Graphics Lend Credibility

A Sunday School teacher several weeks told a great story about this fantastic creature that went through a cycle sort of like a butterfly.   He had a great power point presentation with pictures to back it up.  He even passed around some specimens.  He had a biology degree and plenty of experience to back it all up.  Come to find out, he made the whole thing up.  The specimens were things you might even be able to find in your backyard and they were totally unrelated.

The point was that just because books have all these pictures and charts and seemingly “scientific” evidence, we assume that evolution is true.  If you really look at the facts, creationism really makes more sense.

  1. I didn’t find the illustration too useful. If the point was to teach me to be incredulous about degrees and qualifications, I’m left an agnostic–why is his degree (or Ham’s for that matter) more credible than anyone else’s? If his point is that scientists are lying to us, he left out the motive.

  2. That is the point. Just because someone has a degree, it doesn’t mean that you blindly accept what they say as truth. Or, just because something is in a textbook, doesn’t mean that it is indisputable.

    I don’t know that the scientists are intentionally lying to us. Without intention, they would have no motive. They just believed the lie.

    Rom 1:20-22
    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: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
