How did the universe begin, and how and when was everything in it created and formed?That is probably the most fundamental question of all. Here I compare two cosmogonies (the study of the origin of the universe).
A worldview is what we hold to be true, essentially, without proof. The big bang/evolution worldview and timeline is compared to the Genesis creation worldview and timeline. The problem of initial assumptions is highlighted.
8 reasons are presented that make evolution an impossible idea. The term evolution is used in the general sense applying to the universe beginning at the big bang, and including cosmic evolution of stars and galaxies, the solar system and Earth, and the origin of life and biological evolution.
The questions are taken from the cosmos, from geology of the planet Earth and from biology. The reasons that make evolution foolish as a viable scientific theory are posed as the lack of any reasonable answer to 8 questions:
Where did the Universe come from? How did nothing explode? How did stars and galaxies form? How come all rocks dated with Carbon-14 give ‘absolute ages’ less than 56,000 yrs? How do you determine the absolute age of a fossil? Why hasn’t evolution been observed? How does specific complex coded information in DNA arise by chance? How did life arise from non-living chemicals by random chance?
This is a lecture delivered at the University of Adelaide on June 6th, 2014. I presented the lecture to an audience of about 55 and spoke on the topic for about 60 minutes presenting my 8 reasons via 8 questions which, so far, have not been answered by evolutionists. Following the lecture we had about 40 minutes of Q&A. The lecture was attended by an atheist group who attempted to catch me with ‘straw men’ and misdirected questions, see: ATHEISTS TURN OUT TO STRIKE AGAINST CREATIONISM AND THE SUPERNATURAL.
