"IN THE BEGINNING"(Continued)
OPPOSITIONS OF SCIENCE
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth"-GENESIS 1:1
Another area in which false science disagrees with the Bible is in the area of genetics. The whole theory of evolution revolves around this science. It will stand or fall upon this science alone. If modern man evolved from lower life forms then they are genetically linked. But the first chapter of the Bible reveals some laws of genetics that diametrically oppose the false theory of evolution and these laws have proven to be accurate for about six-thousand years.
In the first chapter of Genesis alone, God uses the expression "after his kind" or "after their kind" no less than ten times. What does this mean? Genetically speaking, it means that God created all species of life on earth and they are only capable of reproducing after their "own kind". In other words, you can't cross a dog with a cat and get a "dat". It just will not work genetically. Notice God's language: "And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind"-Gen 1:11. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind"-Gen 1:21. Whales didn't evolve, God created full grown whales. He said, or spoke them into existence. And they are only capable of reproducing after their own kind as the other species that are mentioned in Genesis 1.
Where many people become confused is in the area of selective breeding. But this can only be done within a species, or "after their kind". The cross breeding of dogs is within their own species. The same may be said of cats, cattle, horses etc. On a horizontal plane, selective breeding has proven to be a fact. But in all of this, God's laws have never been altered or broken. It has always been "after their kind".
If evolution were true, missing links would be producing themselves by the thousands every day of the year because it would be genetically possible. But from the grass, to the tree, to the water creatures, to the fowl of the air, to the cattle and the creeping things of the earth, to the beast of the earth, God's wisdom and glory is displayed and His magnificent laws of genetics continue to prove that God is the sole creator of all creatures, both great and small. These weighty words, "After their kind", are inspired and preserved for believers today that we may continue to avoid "oppositions of science falsely so called".
