1. The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory states that the Universe, galaxies, stars, planets arose, by chance, from a huge explosion between 5 and 20 billion years ago. We would like to make the following comments:
- All observed explosions are destructive and not constructive.
- Explosions cause spontaneous degeneration and not spontaneous generation.
- All explosions decrease order and structure.
An illustrative example is that, if you blow up an aircraft factory, you do not end up with a Jumbo Jet by chance.
2. The Spontaneous Generation Theory
The Spontaneous Generation Theory states that all life on planet Earth descended from a common single-cell, arising by chance, in the “primordial ooze”, 3.5 billion years ago. This contradicts the Law of Biogenesis, which states that life comes from pre-existing life.
3. Time and Space had a finite beginning
Albert Einstein published his Special Theory of Relativity in 1905, and his General Theory of Relativity in 1915.
In 1968 and 1970 three British astrophysicists, Steven Hawking, George Ellis and Roger Penrose published papers in which they extended Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity to include measurements of time and space.
They discovered that time and space had a finite beginning that corresponded to the origin of matter and energy.
Hawking, Ellis and Penrose discovered that before this finite beginning, time and space did not exist!
4. The Spontaneous Generation theory contradicts the First Law of Thermodynamics
The First Law Of Thermodynamics
The First Law of Thermodynamics is often thought of as the Law of Conservation of Mass and Energy.
Quotations from the Concise Oxford Dictionary:
Definition of Mass: “A coherent body of matter with no definite shape”.
Definition of Matter: “A physical substance or material in general, as distinct from mind and spirit (in physics), which occupies space and possesses mass, especially as distinct from energy”.
Definition of Energy: “The property of matter and radiation which is manifest as a capacity to perform work”.
The First Law of Thermodynamics states that the sum of the following energies in a closed system remains constant:
- Kinetic Energy
- Potential Energy
- Thermal Energy
Matter, or its energy equivalent, cannot be either created or destroyed under natural circumstances. To explain the origin of matter in the atheistic Spontaneous Generation model, it is assumed that matter arose from nothing.
This is in direct contravention of the First Law of Thermodynamics which demands that Matter Cannot Create Itself. Logically there must therefore have been an “Outside Agency”, Who the Bible describes as God, Who created everything.
5. Evolution contradicts the Second law of Thermodynamics
In the Theory of Evolution it is proposed that “simple life” evolved into more complex life forms by Spontaneous Generation. Both Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and the Spontaneous Generation model both directly contravene the Law of Biogenesis.
The Second Law Of Thermodynamics
The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the disorder in a system increases, rather than decreases. The Second Law of Thermodynamics gives a precise definition of a property called Entropy.
Entropy: Entropy can be thought of as a measure of the disorder in a system. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the Entropy, or disorder, of an isolated system can never decrease. In other words, in our Universe, a state of order progresses to a state of disorder.
- The Sun and the stars are burning up.
- The Sun is cooling down.
- The Universe is “winding down”.
- Ultimately there will be “heat death” of the Universe.
In other words, everything in our Universe tends to disorder. This principle of Entropy is exactly what the Bible teaches in the following Scriptures:
Hebrews 1:10-12, “Lord, in the beginning you made the Earth, and the Heavens are the work of your hands. They will disappear into nothingness, but you will remain forever. They will become worn out like old clothes, and some day you will fold them up and replace them. But you yourself will never change, and your years will never end”, TLB.
Psalm 102:25-27, “In ages past you laid the foundations of the Earth and made the Heavens with your hands! They shall perish, but you go on forever. They will grow old like worn-out clothing, and you will change them like a man putting on a new shirt and throwing away the old one! But you yourself never grow old. You are forever, and your years never end”, TLB.
In the world that we observe, nothing gets more ordered in design and structure, without an input from an external higher energy source.
The Colosseum in Rome
The Colosseum is not getting in a more ordered state by itself, but is in fact becoming less ordered, and will eventually collapse completely.
Evolutionist claim that adding energy to a system will increase the order in that system
This claim is not borne out in observations.
- America added a lot of energy, in the form of nuclear bombs, to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. But America certainly did not increase order in either city.
- The Sun’s energy is destructive to everything on Earth except one molecule called Chlorophyll,
- The Sun will eventually burn the roof of our houses and turn the bricks to powder.
Implications of Second Law of Thermodynamics
The Second Law of Thermodynamics implies that the Universe could not order and provide energy for itself.
The order and energy observed in the Universe implies an “Outside Agency”, Who the Bible describes as God.
