"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."

"As if evolution and evolutionary theory were not already confusing enough, many creationists complicate matters even further by promulgating the mistaken idea that evolution is the same as abiogenesis... the origin of life is certainly an interesting topic, but it is not a part of evolutionary theory."

"[You] tell us that evolution is some ungodly hybrid of cosmology, abiogenesis and something about rocks. Friend, nobody thinks that."

"They [Evolution & Big Bang] have nothing whatsoever to do with one another,"

After years of working in ministry, I commonly hear evolutionists say that big bang and abiogenesis [origin of life on earth] have nothing to do with evolution. However, despite what they want to believe, big bang and abiogenesis are not only taught as part of evolution, it is widely accepted as such due to the fact that it has always been taught that way. Those who believe in evolution typically have heavy denial that this is being taught, and they also deny the concept is accepted by the general public due to the teaching of it in public schools.

For example, this is a textbook that was used as instructional material approved by the state of Indiana, and it directly contradicts what I hear many evolutionists saying:
"Using that definition, many things can be considered to evolve." That is the basis this textbook uses to teach children that cosmological origins is part of evolution religion.
(Read "Evolution: A New-Age Religion" here at creationliberty.com for more details)

Though many evolutionists don't want to believe it, concepts taught in the public school system will be the basis of perception in the world. It's crazy to think that if you teach something one way in the public schools, you can flip it around anytime it's convenient for you. If evolutionists would quit teaching big bang and abiogenesis as part of the evolution theory, the worldview would get straightened out in a couple generations on its own, but they are still teaching it.

You can see clear evidence of this in media. There is a show on CBS called "The Big Bang Theory," and the introduction to the show says it all:

If you slow down the images, you can see how they are connecting the origin of time/space/matter in the big bang, directly to the origin of life in abiogenesis, to the rest of the evolution theory. We need to understand that producers will put these things together based on the common knowledge of the populus, which means that the common understand that the world has is that big bang and abiogenesis are all part of the evolution model!

Read some of the lyrics to the song, and they directly connect it all together:
"Our whole universe was in a hot dense state, then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started. The Earth began to cool, the autotrophs began to drool, Neanderthals developed tools... The bipeds stood up straight, the dinosaurs all met their fate, they tried to leap but they were late, and they all died. The oceans and Pangea, see ya wouldn't wanna be ya, set in motion by the same big bang! It all started with the big BANG!"

Still think it's not being taught? The Technology, Entertainment, and Design (TED) expo invited evolutionist David Christian to speak on evolution. He starts out his presentation talking about the big bang: "Around us, there's nothing, not even time or space... and then suddenly, BAM! A universe appears. [i.e. Big Bang]"
-David Christian, "Big History: The History of Our World in 18 Minutes," TED Expo, March 2011, retrieved Sept 27, 2012, [http://www.ted.com/talks/david_christian_big_history.html]

And yes, that is basically all the science behind the big bang model in one sentence, so bravo Mr. Christian. He then continues to talk about star formation and the formation of our solar system in evolutionary terms, and about 8 minutes into his speech, he talks about the formation of earth cooling down from a hot, molten mass. So far, he is covering evolution in the exact same way I cover it in my overview of evolution, except he gets compliments because he religiously believes it, and I get insulted because I don't buy that nonsense.

Then, Mr. Christian talks about the origin of life:
"Living organisms are created by chemistry... but of course, life is more than just exotic chemistry... DNA, of course, is the beautiful molecule that stores that information... DNA is learning and building greater diversity... 600 to 800 million years ago, multicelled organisms appear. You get fungi, you get fish, you get plants, you get amphibians, you get reptiles, and then, of course, you get the dinosaurs."

We just had an evolutionist take us on a journey of the history of the universe through an evolutionist perspective. He started with big bang, then went to star formation and chemical formation, then went to the earth cooling down and life appearing, and then life evolving. Folks, that is EXACTLY how I present it based on what's taught in the textbooks, but that's EXACTLY what I get harassed for teaching by evolutionists who hate that I talk about evolution in a truthful and simple manner because it makes the whole religion look so stupid.

I still laugh at how many of these evolutionists want to disconnect big bang and abiogenesis from evolution (and logically so, since they are embarrassing religious beliefs), but yet they fight against me so much for revealing how stupid those ideas are in our textbooks. Should they not be joining me in wanting to get big bang and abiogenesis out of the textbooks? I have never had one evolutionist say that, or applaud that I am revealing it for what it is. Why not? Because most evolutionists I meet believe in "the end justifies the means," so in the minds of most evolutionists, it's OK to lie to students, as long as they believe in evolution, and if big bang/abiogenesis helps them reach that religious belief, we should continue to make all tax-payers pay for lies to be taught.

Some of you are thinking, "Chris, there's no way people think that." Really?

"The charge of circular reasoning in stratigraphy can be handled in several ways. It can be ignored, as not the proper concern of the public. It can be denied, by calling down the Law of Evolution. It can be admitted, as a common practice... Or it can be avoided, by pragmatic reasoning."
-J. E. O'Rourke, "Pragmatism versus Materialism in Stratigraphy," American Journal of Science, vol. 276, January, 1976, p. 54

pragmatism: character or conduct that emphasizes practicality
(See 'pragmatism', Random House Dictionary, Random House Inc, 2012; See also Collins English Dictionary, 10th Edition, William Collins Sons & Co, 2009)

The above quote is dealing with the circular reasoning of using rocks to date fossils and fossils to date rocks, but the evolutionist speaking says it can "avoided by pragmatic reasoning," or in other words, the end justifies the means in his worldview, so it's OK to lie to people so long as they believe in evolution. There are a surprising number of evolutionists who think this way.

An evolutionist student at UC-Berkeley was in a discussion in an open Q&A with a creation speaker, and while talking about taking lies out of the textbooks that are used to support evolution, he said the following:

"Everyone knows everything about skeletal muscles and your digestive system. I can read that over and over again, but that's not going to make me want to be more intuitive and creative... if you take these so-called lies out of the textbooks, you're limiting education."
-Student of UC-Berkeley in coversation with Kent Hovind, "UC-Berkeley Finally Hears the Truth," CSE, retrieved Sept 27, 2012, [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPQJF21IOhA]

In this evolutionist's mind, it is OK to lie to students, so long as they believe in evolution, which he believes will support a particular creative view that he thinks everyone should have. This is another clear example of "the end justifies the means," because in the bleak evolutionary worldview, there is no moral standard to adhere to, so it doesn't matter what you choose to do, so long as you accomplish your personal goals.
(See "More Moral Than God, CLE Podcast Ep#47" to watch our live evolutionist guest claim that he is more moral than God, but then is unable to give any explanation or justification for morality)

The point is that abiogenesis and big bang will only be a part of evolution when it is convenient for evolutionists. When it becomes inconvenient, they will deny any connection to what they believe, just as we are seeing now. As I've said before, the general religious following of evolution mimicks all the habitual qualities of any other religious cult.

Evolution is nothing but a religious worldview that denies the authority and truth of the God of the Bible and His Son. As all men, including myself, those that have believed in evolution have made themselves the authority above God, violating the first of the ten commandments, and there will be punishment on the day of Judgment, but if they will simply repent of their sin, and turn from their wicked mindsets, giving due authority to the Sovereign God of the Bible and putting on the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior, they too can be saved from the wrath to come.
