I wonder if I am destined to be always on the other end. I have always been opposed to the notion that Adam was the first man on earth. Adam was a special creation . He lived in a literal location. He had children whose names are on record. Hatches , matches and dispatches are all recorded. On the other hand ,the fruit of knowledge of good and evil is an obvious metaphor. He was unique and was created for a specific purpose. The creation account agrees with the observable facts of geology. The Darwin theory is such utter bunkum that if it had been on any other subject it would have been rejected without question. It was a special gift to the unbeliever and the God hater. They pounced on it with utmost enthusiasm. Ever since then they have been forced to adjust and tinker and shore up and modify. The creation account states that life began in the water. The account then goes on to say about land animals and birds and plants. The fossil record shows that it was so. Now comes the split. Evolutionists split their differences trying to prove that everything evolved by accident. About forty years ago I was convinced that the great geological changes had been brought about by periodic cataclysmic impacts of asteroids or meteors. Anyone who subscribed to that notion at that time was called a catastrophist with a curled lip and a sneer. The evidence for such events is now overwhelming . Every time we examine the end of one geological period and the beginning of another , the patern is the same. Vast numbers of animals and plants are extinguished and new species appear . That can be observed from the graptolite to the present animal kingdom. Now what makes it so awkward for the evolutionist is the fact that the animals are all perfectly designed for a specific purpose. 'Ask the beasts of the field and they will tell you of me'the observable fact that they are designed demands the conclusion that there is a designer. There is only one possible conclusion . GOD IS.
