1. Where did the space for the universe come from?
How could someone be expected to know this?
2. Where did matter come from?
Two giant balls of gases collapsed into each other, creating all matter.
3. Where did the laws of the universe come from (gravity, inertia, etc.)?
It came supposedly from the collapse (the Big Bang).
4. How did matter get so perfectly organized?
Meaning what? Do you mean humans are perfectly organized? Because we’re not. There are so many things that don’t work right. That is why evolution is still selecting what’s working and what isn’t.
5. Where did the energy come from to do all the organizing?
That makes no sense. Who says “something” was an organizer?
6. When, where, why, and how did life come from dead matter?
The key is from inorganic to organic. Stanley Miller showed us it was possible. Go research it.
7. When, where, why, and how did life learn to reproduce itself?
What a reasonable question.
8. With what did the first cell capable of sexual reproduction reproduce?
Again, another reasonable question.
9. Why would any plant or animal want to reproduce more of its kind since this would only make more mouths to feed and decrease the chances of survival? (Does the individual have a drive to survive, or the species? How do you explain this?)
The species, of course. The creator of these questions is thinking too much like a human. Animals don’t worry about themselves surving in the way humans do. The can die as soon as they’ve reproduced. How do I explain this? It makes perfect sense. The individual animal’s (or plant’s) goal is to reproduce in order for the species to survive.
10. How can mutations (recombining of the genetic code) create any new, improved varieties? (Recombining English letters will never produce Chinese books.)
If a mutation works better for a species to survive, natural selection will keep that mutation, and eventually, the species will evolve. Enough mutations (granted these new mutations are separated from the original), the species will have so many new mutations it is incapable of reproducing with the original. (English and Chinese are too different. Recombining LATIN letters can someday produce Spanish books.)
11. Is it possible that similarities in design between different animals prove a common Creator instead of a common ancestor?
Since an all-powerful Creator can NEVER be disproved, it is possible to many people, but irrelevant to others.
12. Natural selection only works with the genetic information available and tends only to keep a species stable. How would you explain the increasing complexity in the genetic code that must have occurred if evolution were true?
I admit I don’t know enough to answer this. I am fifteen years old. I’m not an expert.
13. When, where, why, and how did
a. Single-celled plants become multi-celled? (Where are the two and three-celled intermediates?)
b. Single-celled animals evolve?
c. Fish change to amphibians?
d. Amphibians change to reptiles?
e. Reptiles change to birds? (The lungs, bones, eyes, reproductive organs, heart, method of locomotion, body covering, etc., are all very different!)
f. How did the intermediate forms live?
Evolutionists will readily admit all these specifics have not been obtained yet. The human genome was first drafted in 2001. WE’ve come a LONG way with what we do know.
14. When, where, why, how, and from what did:
a. Whales evolve?
b. Sea horses evolve?
c. Bats evolve?
d. Eyes evolve?
e. Ears evolve?
f. Hair, skin, feathers, scales, nails, claws, etc., evolve?
These are very unreasonable questions. I suppose this is all in the Bible!
15. Which evolved first (how, and how long, did it work without the others)?
a. The digestive system, the food to be digested, the appetite, the ability to find and eat the food, the digestive juices, or the body"'"s resistance to its own digestive juice (stomach, intestines, etc.)?
b. The drive to reproduce or the ability to reproduce?
c. The lungs, the mucus lining to protect them, the throat, or the perfect mixture of gases to be breathed into the lungs?
d. DNA or RNA to carry the DNA message to cell parts?
e. The termite or the flagella in its intestines that actually digest the cellulose?
f. The plants or the insects that live on and pollinate the plants?
g. The bones, ligaments, tendons, blood supply, or muscles to move the bones?
h. The nervous system, repair system, or hormone system?
i. The immune system or the need for it?
16. There are many thousands of examples of symbiosis that defy an evolutionary explanation. Why must we teach students that evolution is the only explanation for these relationships?
17. How would evolution explain mimicry? Did the plants and animals develop mimicry by chance, by their intelligent choice, or by design?
18. When, where, why, and how did man evolve feelings? Love, mercy, guilt, etc. would never evolve in the theory of evolution.
Since psychologists and neurologists hardly know anything about feelings, is it rationals to expect evolutionists to explain what is so vague already? And who says humans are the only things with feelings.
19. How did photosynthesis evolve?
20. How did thought evolve?
21. How did flowering plants evolve, and from what?
22. What kind of evolutionist are you? Why are you not one of the other eight or ten kinds?
23. What would you have said fifty years ago if I told you I had a living coelacanth in my aquarium?
24. Is there one clear prediction of macroevolution that has proved true?
25. What is so scientific about the idea of hydrogen gas becoming human?
The trillions of years between the two and everything that happened for it to be possible.
26. Do you honestly believe that everything came from nothing?
After you have answered the preceding questions, please look carefully at your answers and thoughtfully consider the following questions.
1. Are you sure your answers are reasonable, right, and scientifically provable, or do you just believe that it may have happened the way you have answered? (Do these answers reflect your religion or your science?)
2. Do your answers show more or less faith than the person who says, "God must have designed it"?
Less faith, more science. Because with more evidence, I know my views will change.
3. Is it possible that an unseen Creator designed this universe? If God is excluded at the beginning of the discussion by your definition of science, how could it be shown that He did create the universe if He did?
It can’t be disproven. I don’t believe it.
4. Is it wise and fair to present the theory of evolution to students as fact?
Yes, as much as it is to present the theory of gravity.
5. What is the end result of a belief in evolution (lifestyle, society, attitude about others, eternal destiny, etc.)?
It changes depending on the person.
6. Do people accept evolution because of the following factors?
a. It is all they have been taught. No.
b. They like the freedom from God (no moral absolutes, etc.). Np.
c. They are bound to support the theory for fear of losing their job or status or grade point average. No.
d. They are too proud to admit they are wrong. No.
e. Evolution is the only philosophy that can be used to justify their political agenda. No.
7. Should we continue to use outdated, disproved, questionable, or inconclusive evidences to support the theory of evolution because we don"'"t have a suitable substitute (Piltdown man, recapitulation, archaeopteryx, Lucy, Java man, Neanderthal man, horse evolution, vestigial organs, etc.)? Ha… Lucy, Java man, Neanderthal man… these are upright walking people.
8. Should parents be allowed to require that evolution not be taught as fact in their school system unless equal time is given to other theories of origins (like divine creation)?
Divine creation is NOT science. It is PHILOSOPHY. It does not belong in the schoolroom; leave it for Sunday school.
9. What are you risking if you are wrong? As one of my debate opponents said, "Either there is a God or there is not. Both possibilities are frightening." I am not wrong. I guess I’ll go to hell. I mean, I haven’t been baptized. I’ll go to Limbo. After all, that’s where God sends children who haven’t been baptized.
10. Why are many evolutionists afraid of the idea of creationism being presented in public schools? If we are not supposed to teach religion in schools, then why not get evolution out of the textbooks? It is just a religious worldview.
If creationism is taught in schools, goodbye to science! HELLO, ARISTOTLE! We are not that primitive. Except, the people won’t even realize how primitive that is because they think we were once Adam and Eve, exactly how we are today.
