1) Where did the Universe come from?
Man puts all his faith in cosmology to answer this fundamental question. But cosmology is not even science, it is just philosophy. This has meant that man has had to invent fudge factors to make his theories work, such as the totally-just-made-up stuff called Dark Energy, Dark Matter, and Inflation. There isn’t a shred of any real laboratory evidence for any of them. Not any! They also claim the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation as the afterglow of the Big Bang, thus supposed to be coming from all directions. Yet it seems to be associated with the orbital plane of our solar system’s planets! But that makes no sense at all!
2) How did nothing explode?
According to the Big Bang story first there was ‘nothing’ and it exploded! When I say ‘nothing,’ I mean not even vacuum, not even matter, no energy, no space, no time, not anything. Nothing!
According to Stephen Hawking, the question of the origin of the universe does not even exist. He claims it began in every way imaginable and maybe even some that aren’t. He asks, why are we here? He simply says that the Universe selects those histories that lead to these conditions.* That is, the Universe made itself—there was no Creator. And that just makes no sense at all.
(*Hawking, S.W. & Hertog, T., Phys. Rev.D 73, 123527 (2006))
3) How did stars and galaxies form?
There is no known law of nature (physics) that allows stars to form originally from clouds of gas, which supposedly came from the big bang. Fundamental physics must be violated* or one must invent unknown stuff—Dark Matter—with the right properties to get stars to form naturalistically.* Without it, it just can’t happen.
(*Jeans limit must be overcome by either compression of or cooling the cloud. Usually simulations are started with an over density such that the Jeans mass is achieved. Jeans mass =Kρ–1/2 T3/2, where K is a constant, ρ is the cloud density, and T is the absolute temperature. ** It has been proposed that an exploding star can compress a gas cloud, but that hardly qualifies as an explanation for the origin of stars in the first place. )
4) How come all rocks dated with Carbon-14 give ‘absolute ages’ less than 56,000 yrs?
Practically all carbon bearing rocks including inorganic minerals found on Earth over the past 40 years contain Carbon-14. Why is that? None should exist after 100,000 years. They say the Earth is 4.5 billion years old. Coal that is assumed to be at least 30 million years old was dated with Carbon-14 to be only 45,000 years old, using evolutionary assumptions. Diamonds, which are pure carbon and meant to be at least 1 billion years old, have been dated to be only 55,700 years old with carbon-14. The millions and billions of years must be wrong. Using biblical assumptions these ages become less than 5,000 years. See also here and here.

5) How do you determine the absolute age of a fossil?
Evolutionary stories tell us that the millions of fossils in the sedimentary layers found all over the Earth give dates in line with microbes evolving into man over the past 3 billion years. But it is impossible to determine the absolute age of any fossil. It must be dated by the sediments it is found in. And how are the sedimentary layers dated? By the fossils found in them–circular reasoning! And even when they use radioactive minerals (in associated volcanic material) to ‘date’ sediments, they must make untestable assumptions. Even so, different methods commonly disagree with each other.
6) Why hasn’t evolution been observed?
You can’t do experiments, or even observe what happened, in the past. Prof. Richard Dawkins said “Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it has not been observed while it’s happening.”* Which, of course, makes no sense at all.
(*Bill Moyers interviews Richard Dawkins, Now, 3 December 2004, PBS network)
7) How does specific complex coded information in DNA arise by chance?
Single-celled organisms have much less information in their DNA than a human does. If the complex evolved from the less complex, information had to have been added. Prof. Richard Dawkins was asked to give one such example. He couldn’t, and hasn’t because evolution does not happen. Information comes from an intelligent mind, not by random processes. When DNA is copied, information is overwhelmingly lost, not added.
Evolutionists also claim that the DNA coded information storage system itself ‘evolved’. Yet no coding system (such as written language) has ever come into existence except by intelligent design. Furthermore, DNA is the densest information storage system known in the universe! Molecules cannot create a code out of themselves. Evolution is a total failure in explaining such things.
8) How did life arise from non-living chemicals by random chance?
Finally, an even bigger problem, if that’s possible. Nobody knows how life arose from non-living chemicals.* To say anything different is just plain foolish.
So don’t be fooled. Actually when we look at the various arguments supporting evolution, we can see that they are just plain foolish.
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) Not the Big Bang but the Creator God.
“God created man in his own image, …” (Genesis 1:27).
All men are descended from Adam. In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve sinned against God and so God cursed them and the whole universe.
“…sin came into the world through one man [Adam], and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.” (Romans 5:12)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
All deserve death “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23) but Jesus fully paid the penalty on the Cross—as only a Holy God could—for those who repent of their sins.
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12,13)
