The Story of Darwin The Barrel-Mixer and Those Who Believe in Him (2/2)
At the beginning of the 20th century many important scientific developments occurred, each of them proving how wrong Darwin's theory was.
In the 1900s, the science of genetics was born, and shortly afterwards the structure of genes and chromosomes was discovered.
In 1955, James Watson and Francis Crick demonstrated the structure of the DNA molecule. To explain DNA briefly:
Francis Crick James Watson
In the nucleus of every cell in your body, there is a DNA molecule, containing all the information about your body. The color of your hair and your eyes, information about your internal organs, your external appearance, your height, and all your other characteristics are all encoded in your DNA. To understand how much information is contained in DNA, consider this comparison: If you wrote down the information in one DNA molecule, it would fill a library of 900 volumes of 500 pages each. To house these encyclopedias, you would need a library as long as a football field. This much information, invisible to us, is contained in one single molecule.
DNA proves that cells could not have come into being by chance. This is one of the countless clear proofs of God's existence.
We have mentioned just a few of the developments that occurred in the last century. Every branch of science separately affirms the invalidity of evolution. Despite this, evolutionists continue to cling to Darwin's "explanations." They even add new fabrications to the old ones. But these will still not make Darwin's famous barrel experiment work, because evolutionists still do not think scientifically. They do not accept the fact that the Almighty God created all living things.
Very well, what has changed in Darwin's theory in the meantime? Let's look at a conversation between scientists who believe in the evolutionist myth, and those who don't:
Scientist 1: Darwin's resources were limited. In his day science was at a very low level. He could not prove evolution under those conditions.
Scientist 2: Maybe we can do what he couldn't. We will prove that a cell can come into existence by chance.
Scientist 3: I don't agree. No living creature will come out of your cherished barrel.
Scientist 1: Our laboratories are filled with high-tech instruments. Now we know more about living things. We have discovered the structure of cells. Perhaps human beings will soon produce a living thing.
Scientist 2: Let's try it again.
Scientist 3: You're wrong. People who think like you have been waiting by their barrels for a hundred years. You can wait for hundreds of years more, but still nothing will happen. Remember, Darwin didn't get the results he wanted.
Scientist 1: Why not give it a try? We might succeed.
Scientist 2: Let's see what happens.
Scientist 3: No! You can wait a million years, but nothing will happen. To create life, it isn't enough to assemble all the elements in living things. Only God creates and gives life.
After their conversation, the three scientists make a decision.
Scientist 3: Alright, we have many more resources than Darwin had; let's use them all and do an experiment. You will see the results, and maybe then you will accept the truth.
Scientist 1: OK.
Scientist 2: Let's get started.
And they try the experiment again . . .
Scientist 1: There, I've made a mixture of gasses that I think were in the Earth's primal atmosphere.
Scientist 2: I've made an artificial source of electrical discharge.
Scientist 1: Let's boil the gas mixture at 100 degrees Centigrade for a week.
Scientist 2: Let's apply a continuous electrical charge to the mixture. That may work better.
An electrical charge is applied to the mixture and it is heated constantly. What will be the result?
Scientist 1: It's been a week. Let's put some of the mixture in a test tube.
Scientist 2: But there are no test tubes in nature. . . !
Scientist 1: Never mind. We can't do it any other way. It will just be a little deception.
Scientist 2: Alright. You're very sly. Let's see if it will work.
The scientists are amazed when they examine the mixture. There is still no cell.
Scientist 1: I don't believe it; it still didn't work.
Scientist 2: We've done everything. How could it not work?
Scientist 1: We have all the resources and we've tried everything but we couldn't produce a single cell.
Scientist 2: Come on, let's give up.
Like Darwin's dream, the dream of these scientists also comes to an end.
Scientist 3: You see? I told you so. Inanimate matter cannot create life by itself. This is only a deception devised by some people that don't believe in God.
Scientist 1(stubbornly): By the 21st century we will be proven right.
Scientist 2: Maybe we have failed so far. But soon we will do it; you will see.
Scientist 3: Gentlemen. It's not possible; admit it. To prove the theory of evolution, you've added things to your experiment that do not exist under natural conditions. But you turned a blind eye to that. You had every resource at your disposal. And you carried out the whole experiment according to your own planned program.
Scientist 1: Yes, so what?
Scientist 3: You made a plan and did the experiment. You didn't leave the experiment to chance; you calculated every stage of it. But, as you know, inanimate matter cannot decide to combine and then implement it. You did that and you failed. And you can wait a few weeks or a few years, but you still won't be able to do it. You can bequeath this experiment to those who come after you for thousands or even millions of years but you will never be able to bring a perfectly formed living thing out of that barrel.
Since you have not been successful in this experiment in spite of all your plans and technological resources, how can you expect that living beings could be formed out of unconscious matter?
For living things to come into being, there must first of all be a delicate and precise measurement of the necessary elements and a superior knowledge to direct and assemble them. These are found in the infinite intelligence of the Almighty Lord. Living things did not come into being by themselves, but were created by God, the Lord of all the worlds.
All the followers of Darwin up to the present time have been proven wrong. But some among them have not still lost their belief in the barrel. The most noted evolutionists have all waited patiently, hopefully, expectantly around this barrel.
Let's now look at the situation in which two evolutionist scientists find themselves.
Evolutionist 1: How can this be? Why has no living thing emerged? We're trying everything.
Evolutionist 2: What answer can we give to the creationists? All the scientific research has shown them to be right.
Evolutionist 1: No matter what, we can't accept creation. People must not think that people who believe in God are right. We'll have to keep up the lie; there's no other choice.
These scientists can't obtain any results, either.
Now, we'll introduce you to one of the cells that make up your body.
Hi! I'm a cell. There are about a hundred trillion of my friends, making up your body. We form you by dividing in your mother's womb.
We play a part in every activity you do throughout your whole life. We work for you every time you breathe, walk, eat, digest, see and feel.
Inside us we have energy producing power stations, transportation systems to move products from one area to another, pipelines, information banks containing data about all the products and laboratories.
We are made up of numerous proteins, not one of which can come into being by chance. So, we did not come into existence by chance, either.
How could this marvelous system come into being by chance with its factories, information banks, laboratories, energy centers and transportation systems? Of course, it couldn't.
Now let's read what some famous scientists have said about the impossibility of life emerging by chance:
Sir Fred Hoyle
The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junk-yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein. —Sir Fred Hoyle
The most elementary type of cell constitutes a "mechanism" unimaginably more complex than any machine yet thought up, let alone constructed, by man. —W.H. Thorpe
Some scientists are aware of the miracle of cells. They acknowledge that life cannot come into being from inanimate matter. Darwin the barrel-mixer and evolutionists have made several false claims about cells and living things. But now you know very well that it is Almighty God Who created everything.
