Over the past 150+ years there has been a concerted effort on the part of unregenerate man to undermine the authority of the Holy Bible using the teaching of a bankrupt religion known as evolution. Evolution is just a new name in the never ending war against God and His word. It uses one of the most respected classes of people in our society, the 'scientist.' Science is surely one area of academia that we can trust, or can we? If you examine the excerpts from an article by Ken Hutcheson copied below, you may come to the conclusion that scientists may be the least trustworthy of men especially when it comes to the subject of evolution.
The following is by Ken Hutcheson and is reprinted in part from The Baptist Challenge, September 1996.
The Encyclopedia Britannica
In 1953, as a young Air Force Chaplain, I was able to purchase the Encyclopedia Britannica, the world's most renowned authority on everything! What a thrill it was to read what the greatest authorities said about various subjects; until I got to evolution. Page after page of "scientific facts" showed that it was true, including several pages on the Piltdown Man." He was valuable link between man and animals. Although I had been taught this in high school and college, my faith was severely challenged by what appeared to be solid scientific facts. But I determined by God's grace to exercise faith and to believe the Bible anyway!
A few weeks after I bought the Britannica it was quietly announced that the Piltdown man was a fraud! An analysis was made to date the bones more precisely and it was discovered that the skull was human and the jaw was that of a monkey with the teeth filed to make them look human. Both creatures had recently died but the bones had been chemically treated to make them look old! Most news agencies ignored the report, except for Christian publications. Not once have leading,, evolutionists apologized for promoting a fraud to the world. Evolutionists are now trying to wipe the egg from their faces by saying that the whole thing was not a deliberate fabrication to prove evolution, but actually was an attempt to play a practical joke that "got out of hand!" Oh really?
Facts Or Fakery?
Must we believe that from 1912 until 1953, over 40 years, all the "expert, highly educated, brilliant," evolutionists of the world who studied these bones were fooled by a practical joke? Are we expected to give up our faith in God's eternal and infallible Word and trust such men who call themselves "scientists," and yet cannot tell the difference between scientific facts and fakery? Over 500 students wrote their doctoral dissertations on the Piltdown Man and were awarded Ph.D. degrees from outstanding universities of the world! Doctors of fakery! These people who rejected the truth of God's Word are classic examples of God's description of educated fools, "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator ... And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie ... and be damned!" ( Rom. 1:22; 2 Thess. 2:11-1 2). But there's more!
The Java Ape-man
In 1891 a Dutch army doctor, Eugene Dubois, stationed in Java, reported finding the "missing link" between man and animals! He discovered the top of a skull, three jaw teeth, and part of a thighbone. But he found them 70 feet apart, among many bones along a creek, over the period of a year! After completing his military service Dubois kept the bones in a trunk at home and sent pencil drawings to various evolutionary leaders and museums of the world who eagerly welcomed his "scientific" proof.
The Pithecanthropus Erectus!
Calling his find the Java Ape-Man or "Pithecanthropus erectus" (the ape-man that walks upright), evolutionists swallowed his "proof" without question and arrogantly declared to the world that the Ape-Man was 750,000 years old! Many leading scientists eagerly went to his Holland home to see for themselves those amazing bones-, only for Dubois to turn them away at his door. Finally, after about 35 years, the scientific world demanded to see and evaluate the bones for themselves. Twenty-four European scientists met and studied the bones. Ten said they were the bones of an ape; seven said they came from a man; and seven said they were not the bones of a "missing link!" No less an authority than H.G. Wells, the agnostic historian known for his two-volume Outline of History, said they were the bones of an ape. It became obvious that the bones were not of an ancient man. But the Java Ape-Man has been paraded in Museums and high school and college text books the world over as the "missing link" between man and animals, proving evolution! Almighty God must have had these worldly wise men in mind when He inspired the Apostle Paul to tell Timothy, to "...keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science, FALSELY SO CALLED!" (1 Tim. 6:20). Still more.
The Nebraska Man!
In 1922 a so-called scientist claimed to have found in Nebraska the true "missing link" between men and animals. Dubbed the "Nebraska Man," it was flaunted in textbooks and museums of the world as being one million years old. Pictures and models were created, based on the "scientific" studies of experts.. Just three years later, in the famous "Monkey Trial" in Dayton, Tenn., in 1925, this overwhelming evidence was introduced to prove evolution and show that "ignorant Bible-believers" were wrong! Great "scientific experts" were quoted to prove their case and all who were dumb enough to believe that God created man in His image were mocked and ridiculed!
When evidence of the "Nebraska Man" was demanded, the "great scientific experts" reluctantly admitted that their evidence consisted of ONE (1) tooth! But that's not all! After evolutionists and the mainstream media reporters bullied lowly Bible believers for years with their "scientific proof," the rest of that skeleton was found, and guess what? It was the skeleton of an extinct pig! What an example of "profane and vain babbling, and oppositions of science, falsely so called:"
The history of evolution is filled with fraud and lies, masquerading as science.
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse deceiving and being deceived... Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth" (2 Tim. 3:1, 3, 7). Bible-hating evolutionists have completely taken over the public schools. In the 1925 "Monkey Trial" evolutionists pleaded that their view should be given equal time in the classroom along with creationism. Yet today, they are in complete control and utterly refuse equal time for creationism! It is evolution all the way; and without prayer and Bible reading, the schools have become jungles. Is it surprising that teens act like animals after being taught for years that they are nothing but animals?" This is the end of the article by Ken Hutcheson.
You may ask, is it necessary to show these fakeries in all of their glory? Surely these are just a few anomalies that only we 'fundamentalist wackos' have found. Is it really necessary to parade this 'dirty laundry' of the scientist's of our time? I believe that is very important that we show these lies and frauds. A thinking person should never just blindly accept what evolutionist's parade out as 'proof' of their doctrine
Why? Because the doctrine of Evolution seeks to destroy the very foundation of the Bible. If it is true, then we might as well throw out the Bible and live like animals. If evolution is true, then there is no God in heaven, and we are the most foolish of men. If evolution is true then we have no hope beyond the grave. However, it is not true! The above quoted article by Ken Hutcheson should help you to see why you should outright reject the claims of the evolutionary liars and their lies. There is no scientific evidence for evolution. It is purely a belief system based upon lies and suppositions.
Charles Hadden Spurgeon, the great Baptist preacher and pastor of the huge Metropolitan Baptist Church of London, England for many years, had this to say about the subject of evolution almost 150 years ago. His comments are still up to date and pertinent today. "We are invited, brethren, most earnestly to go away from the old-fashioned belief of our forefathers because of the supposed discoveries of science. What is science? The method by which man tries to conceal his ignorance. It should not be so, but it is. You are not to be dogmatical in theology, my brethren, it is wicked; but for scientific men it is the correct thing. You are never to assert anything very strongly; but scientists may boldly assert what they cannot prove, and may demand a faith far more credulous that any we possess. Forsooth, you and I are to take our Bibles and shape and mould our belief according to ever-shifting teachings of so-called scientific men. What folly is this! Why, the march of science, falsely so-called, through the world may be traced by exploded fallacies and abandoned theories. Former explorers once adored are now ridiculed; the continual wreckings of false hypotheses is a matter of universal notoriety. You may tell where the learned have encamped by the debris left behind of suppositions."
Yes, the demands that we believe the scientists and throw out the Bible never abates, but anyone with any sense knows that God's word is true, and the scientists will never catch up to God's word until they get saved.
