“Often a cold shudder has run through me, and I have asked myself whether I may have not devoted myself to a phantasy.” -- Charles Darwin
I’m sure everyone in this room has heard that science proves evolution, and that people who believe that God created everything in six days about six thousand years ago have succumbed to a myth. However, when you take the real data and study it using scientific methods, you make a significant discovery - science proves creation! Today, we will explore some of the most mind-blowing aspects of God’s creation that disprove the Theory of Evolution. First, we will study the woodpecker, which will show us that if evolution were true, the woodpecker would be extinct because of the evolutionary rule “survival of the fittest.” Next, we’ll take a step into the world of astrophysics and look at how “the heavens declare the glory of God; and the skies proclaim the work of His hands” (Bible: The New International Version, Psalms 19.1) Finally, we will apply math to creation and see how the Fibonacci Sequence and Phi show how we must have been designed by an infinitely wise God.
To begin, the woodpecker is an amazing example of how the universe must have been created by God and could not have come about by random chance. Speaker and author Dr. Jobe Martin, in his book The Evolution of a Creationist, depicts a Darwinian scenario in which a bird is trying to evolve into a woodpecker. Martin illustrates, Quote...
Let’s suppose some bird decided that there must be all kinds of little critters, which would be good for lunch, hidden beneath the bark of trees. This bird decided to peck through the bark and into the hardwood tree. On first peck, this bird discovered problems with the way it was put together. Its beak shattered when it slammed against the tree, its tail feathers broke, and it developed a migraine-strength headache. With a shattered beak, the little bird was unable to eat and so it died. Now this bird began to think, ‘I must evolve a thicker beak and stronger tail and something to help prevent headaches.’ Of course not! Dead animals cannot evolve anything! Unquote (265)
Instead, to prevent headaches, the Lord placed the industrial strength beak of the woodpecker extremely close to the skull. Amazingly, the woodpecker’s head can withstand 1,200 g’s (or g-force), while an aircraft flight recorder can withstand only 1,000 (Thomas). The force with which woodpeckers peck trees would knock their eyes out if they did not close their eyelids. If it was evolving and did not close its eyes, it would obviously go blind. To be able to withstand this many g’s, it needs four things:
1. Its beak must be flexible yet strong.
2. A hyoid, which is a structure of bone and and elastic tissue that wraps around the skull.
3. The skull needs an area of spongy bone.
4. Finally, very little space for cerebral spinal fluid between the skull and brain.
