Creation vs Evolution - Which is True?

Creation vs Evolution - Which is True?

Creation and Evolution are competing beliefs, philosophies and world views which are mutually exclusive.

This page provides links to Revealed Truth articles and books by William Ogden and to authoritative Creation websites.

Evolution is man's attempt at explaining the universe and life by chance through "natural" means over vast ages of time without a Creator.

Creation acknowledges the need for an all powerful, all knowing, pre-existent Creator God to produce the order and complexity evident throughout the heavens and earth, and in all living creatures.

Revealed Truth Statement of Faith on Creation

We believe that God’s Word, the Bible, is the only source of absolute truth.

Anything the Bible teaches is true.

Anything that disagrees with the Bible is wrong.

The Bible clearly teaches that God created the world in six literal 24-hour days. It also plainly teaches that God destroyed the world with a global flood in the days of Noah. We therefore believe in “young earth creation” by the self-existent God of the Bible, and teach accordingly.

As I was growing up, the public school system indoctrinated me into believing the universe was billions of years old and that life just happened by chance. I studied evolution all the way through college as a Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry major at Yale University. One year after graduating, I heard the gospel and trusted Jesus as my personal savior.

I quickly realized that what the Bible teaches about the origin of life and the universe, and what evolution teaches, are completely different and incompatible. I needed to reconcile my science background with my new faith in the Bible, so I started studying creation science. I read “The Genesis Flood” by John Whitcomb and Henry Morris. This book along with many others demonstrated that the global flood explains the geology of the earth much better than uniformitarianism.

The more I studied, the more I realized the truth of Romans 1:18-20:

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 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" (NASB).

The truth of creation and the flood can be clearly seen all around us

  • The earth is covered with thousands of feet of sedimentary rocks, which testifies to the fact that it was once covered by water.
  • There are fossils of sea shells on the tops of the tallest mountains, which demonstrates that the mountains were once under water.
  • We live in a universe governed by the law of cause and effect. A cause greater than the universe is needed to explain its existence.
  • The first law of thermodynamics says that matter and energy are conserved. They cannot be created or destroyed; only changed from one form to another. The "Big Bang" or any other theory of the universe creating itself out of nothing would violate this fundamental physical law.
  •  The second law of thermodynamics says that the entropy (disorder) of the universe is always increasing. In other words, everything is running down and wearing out. "The laws of nature" cannot explain how all the mass, energy, order, and life in the universe got started.
  • Mutations do not add useful information to the genomes of organisms. Instead, mutations are slowing destroying the perfect DNA that God created.
  • etc.
