The purposes of this brief document are primarily two: (a) Confirm, utilizing the scientific proof offered by the supporters of the Theory of Evolution, the basic tenets of the Theory of Creation; and (b) Show the consequences of when man persists in his denial of God - he keeps making the same mistakes without learning anything from previous errors regardless of how painful the consequences were.
We will do this in broad brush strokes - not trying to
explain every apparent inconsistency in the Holy Scriptures and in
scientific research results, nor attempting to clarify every
mystery within the Holy Scriptures. That would be presumptuous and
would defeat the purpose of this document.
If you ask a room full of individuals what came first, the chicken or the egg, the answers will pour in as a torrent as everyone gives his/her opinion as of the “correct” answer. Most likely, few stopped to think about the issue before speaking. And most, without a doubt, spoke without any real knowledge about the subject at hand.
The same is true with both the Creation and Evolution theorists.
Should they be asked which theory is correct, they will respond with
the same passion - before even looking at the very facts they wield as
Let us now look at the scientific facts utilized by the Big Bang proponents, using language accessible to all:
Phase A In the beginning there was not even “nothing” since only the concept of “space” gives meaning to the concept of “nothingness”. We do not know what was before the Big Bang; it does not even make sense where it started because when it took place, not only matter and energy were created, but also space and time were created - thus the concept of “where” did not exist before.
Phase B Then, in an instant, the universe was formed - infinitely small, dense and hot. We do not know what occurred during the first instants after the Big Bang because the four forces which today determine the behavior of matter - gravity, electromagnetism and nuclear forces, which count as two: strong and weak - were united in one single unit, the details of which scientists have not been able to decipher. A second later, when the Universe was the size of a melon, the Laws of Physics, as we know them now already existed.
Phase C All remained dark until 300,000 years or so later. When the matter had been dispersed enough in the space it suddenly released light in a flash illuminating the entire Universe existing up to this point.
Let us now look at the equivalent Biblical information (*) utilized by most Creationist proponents using accessible language:
Phase A Biblically speaking, before the beginning there was nothing… Creation had not commenced.
Phase B In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
Phase C And God said: Let there be light: and
there was light.
(*) From Genesis 1:1-3
Using Scientific basis - Evolutionists proceed to “create” living things from chemical elements that came from nowhere (as scientifically proven). This is a problem that man cannot begin to even fathom - “nowhere” is a term defined by a Created environment, an environment which did not exist before creation. Thus, this “nowhere” cannot even be grasped by the very feeble human mind.
Using Biblical basis - Creationists proceed to “create” living things from the literal interpretation of Genesis. The problem is that their version starts falling apart at the seams before even getting to chapter Three of the Book of Genesis. We read in Genesis two different stories about the Creation of man: (a) the simultaneous creation of Adam and Eve [Genesis 1: 26-28], and (b) the Adam first and then Eve from Adam’s rib [Genesis 2: 7-24]. [Note, we are not questioning that if God, for example, said “There it be light”, light came into being. We are just highlighting two different Biblical versions of a single reality which cannot be sustained by literalism.]
Now, this difference could possibly be smoothed over by a fast talking fundamentalist preacher. The real problem comes when we read:
“And the Lord said unto him (Cain), Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.” [Genesis 4: 15-17]
By whom is Cain afraid of being killed? According to our literal population census there are only three individuals in the world so far: Adam, Eve and Cain. As if this situation were not enough, we must ask: Where did Cain get that wife? etc.
By this time the Creationists and Evolutionists are most likely engaged in a bitter debate ignoring the very fact that Evolutionists have scientifically proven that the core of the Creationist Theory is really true:
There is really a Creator Who created and contains the Universe that we know. There is a Creator Who has the power to, in a moment too small to measure by man, launch the Creation of an enormously complex, harmonious and self-correcting system that we call the Universe and which is our home.
Now, what one wants to call that Creator is up to the individual, the language spoken and the individual cultural traditions.
Regarding “what one wants to call that Creator is up to the individual, the language spoken and cultural traditions”…
miguel de Portugal says:
I call Him God, marvelously manifested in three distinct “Persons” - Father, Son and Holy Ghost. You wish to call Him Allah?, Fine! Yahweh?, Fine!, Jehovah? Fine! Elohim? Fine! But I tell you something, my friend, I am not going to sit around arguing useless points and much less kill those who do not believe as I do.
That you do not understand, or accept the concept of the Trinity? Fine! If you do not understand something so simple - as we have explained through the Grace of God (1) - it is because God Wills that you do not understand it yet. Anyone who really knows God - not just talks about Him - Loves and Respects his neighbors and their beliefs. And just as Jesus taught, this Love (2) and Respect will move even the most unruly neighbor to respect you, first, and then love you too.
Let us not forget that, after all, in the very beginning God made it very clear that man was not empowered nor justified to kill another man - even an evil murderer such as Cain. Furthermore, He established the consequences of such action when He pronounced: Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. [Genesis 4:15]
miguel de Portugal concludes:
If I am going to obey someOne and live according to the laws that said “someOne” has made manifest to mankind (using a myriad of proven supernatural techniques), I am going to obey That One Who has such Power and Perfect Wisdom as to Create this Universe and Who has so much Love to sustain it in spite of man’s proven stupidity!
We do not mean that we should not take some parts of the Holy Scriptures literally; some of it must be taken exactly as written. Some of the Holy Scriptures is written in an allegorical fashion to express to the man of that time something that he could not possibly comprehend otherwise.
Imagine someone reading in the Holy Scriptures the following passage one hundred years ago:
“In the beginning there was nothing, not even ‘space’ (which would give meaning to the concept of ‘nothingness’). We do not know what was before the Big Bang; it does not even make sense where it started because it was when it took place, not only matter and energy were created, but also space and time were created.”
“We do not know what occurred during the first instant after the Big Bang because the four forces which today determine the behavior of matter - gravity, electromagnetism and nuclear forces, strong and weak - were united in one single unit”
However, even the earliest man could understand “Thou shalt not kill” and “Thou shalt not commit adultery”. Furthermore, after Jesus resurrected the decomposing corpse of His friend Lazarus, people could then comprehend the concept of He Himself being resurrected by the same power Lazarus was resurrected - God, The Father.
We have expanded the discussion about of Biblical
literalism in a
two part document. (3)
As the reader may readily see, evil has been (and continues to be) the only winner of this and similar arguments.
miguel de Portugal made his choice, through the Grace of God and not by any merit of his own, in 1985 (4) What is your choice going to be? More killing, plundering and pillaging? Or, more loving God above all and your neighbors as yourself?
When you make your choice keep in mind that God will be more lenient (5) with those who kill, plunder and pillage out of ignorance (6) than with those who use His Most Holy Name to engage in such satanic behavior - it does not matter which Pope (7), King, President (8) or equivalent may have approved (or will approve) of it. The word of man does not supersede the confirmed Word of God.
We confirm such conclusion as you will see in Part
2 of this document (3)
and the seventh document of this
Will a Comet Hit the Earth? - AGAIN? One thing we know for sure - it will not be another flood like at Noah's time. He promised and I know it is true!
