If a Yowm were an Eon

 

Time is not helpful to Evolutionism except that it allows for some very odd logic--kind of a flimflam.

There are also some who point out that the word, in Scripture, which in Hebrew transliteration would be Yom or Yowm, has the following meanings:

  1. day, time, year
    1. day (as opposed to night)
    2. day (24 hour period)
  2. as defined by evening and morning in Genesis 1
  3. as a division of time
    1. a working day,
    2. a day's journey
    3. days, lifetime (pl.)
    4. time, period (general)
    5. yea
  4. temporal references
    1. today
    2. yesterday
    3. tomorrow

If a Yowm were an eon, or even a thousand eons, this wouldn't help the paradigm of theology of Evolutionism. In fact, time works against the story of Evolution. Evolutionism's paradigm doesn't work by any stretch of the imagination. Basically, it doesn't work because of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the proven law of entropy. And no exception to the law of entropy has ever been found. Evolution would require a major exception to the second law of thermodynamics... an exception that does NOT exist. There is no known mechanism that will add information by random chance. Such a phenomenon has never been observed. Millions of tax dollars have been wasted in trying to find a way, but no such phenomenon has been discovered. The context of the way the Yowm is used, however, indicates that it is a normal day--a 24 hour day. Furthermore, in Exodus 20:11, the same word, Yowm is used: "For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day." That is pretty simple and it should settle the matter. (Read the latest science on the subject: Without Excuse by Werner Gitt, a description of the scientific Laws of Universal Information. See also: Information Theory Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Here is another interesting article.) More is constantly being learned about information and about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolutionists tend to hide in the weeds of the unknown with an argument from ignorance: "If you can't prove, by empirical science, that evolution is impossible, then it happened." By empirical science alone, we can only prove probabilities. The probabilities show the Big-Bang-Billions-of-Years-No-Flood-Molecules-to-Man story to be a bazaar hypothesis, a story that is so improbable that it should not be considered. However, empirical science is not a tool that can prove anything to be true or false absolutely. For absolute proof, we have revelation. (See Basic and Concise Guide to Practical, Useful Logic and Reasoning). God says that He created everything. He is the One Who enforces the laws of nature. He is the One Who will judge all of us in the end. We know that because we know Him presonally through the indwelling Presence of Jesus Christ and the moment-by-moment instruction of the Holy Spirit.

The Evolutionists will tell you a half truth about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The Evolutionists will tell the half truth: "The Second Law of Thermodynamics only applies to isolated systems, so it's not relevant to evolution, because the Earth is an open system." This is a clever lie. Here is the part of the truth that they are withholding: the Second Law of Thermodynamics was derived using theoretical isolated systems, but it applies to all systems, and can only be overcome locally and temporarily in open systems when stringent conditions are met. Not only that, but we are not talking about the Earth. The Earth is just a subsystem of a much larger system called the Universe. The Universe is an isolated system. Evolutionists claim that Evolution took place in this isolated system, but the Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that their story is a myth.

Even more devastating is the very real information problem. Molecules-to-Man Evolution would require a lot of information being created and added to the cell for each supposed step in supposed evolution, but no information is ever added by natural means. Information only comes from information. A virus adds its information to a cell, but it doesn't create new information. Evolution, if it were to ever happen even in the smallest step, would require the creation of new information. That just doesn't happen. Evolutionists say that mutations add information, but they don't. Evolution has a very real information problem.

Psalm 131 basically says that speculation is the mark of spiritual immaturity. Better to believe the Spirit of God speaking to us through the Word. If you, the reader, have been taught theistic evoluion and believe it, don't make it a divisive factor. If you have been taught billions of years and believe it, don't divide the Church over it. Just because you or I may not understand something in Scripture, that is no reason to think that God is kidding or to make up some wild story, a vision out of my own mind. It is supreme pride that says that it can understand everything that God is able to do. At the same time, I'm so thankful for those scientists who point out that the speculators who claim that their speculation is science are just making up stories.

Ungodly people are under the influence of some presuppositions that are just simple-minded assumptions but that seem, to them, like reality.  They are filters and a way to censor out anything God has provide so that they could know Him.  They set up a complex web of rules to filter out God.  They will only accept those things that conform to Naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism.  Naturalism claims that God does nothing.  Materialism claims that there is no God or spiritual realm.  Uniformitarianism claims that there was not creation and that there was no violent worldwide flood, as the Bible and numerous other historical accounts record.  Whatever they observe that does not conform to this complex filter is censored.  The way that it is censored can take several forms.  The ungodly may boldly proclaim that, though the data appears to support God's version and refute the version of the ungodly, yet it still must be interpreted to mean just the opposite of what it does mean.  A backup method that ungodly people use is to prophecy that in the future, science will be able to explain what they see as an anomaly.  If that fails, they will hide the data, set it aside, or lie to keep the public from knowing the truth.  The data clearly demolishes the story of the ungodly and clearly supports the reality of the Creator God, His Bible, and His abiding Presence in His people.  When confronted with the obvious, a closed-minded ungodly person says, "I can't understand it."  They are willingly ignorant because they refuse to hold God in their knowledge.  The reality is that these people, for whatever reason, don't what to know the Creator.  They don't want to truly know Jesus, their Creator.
