Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
We do not believe that God created the Universe because of evidence. We believe it, because that is what God said in His Word. Having presupposed the obvious truth of God’s Word, we notice that any evidence observed and collected is consistent with what we know of the truth of God’s Word.
For this reason, we do not attempt to provide evidence to prove to you that God exists. God exists, whether or not people are convinced by the evidence. But there are many good reasons why we should use evidence, as we explain the truth of God’s creation to people.
We often use evidence to show how inconsistent evolutionists are. For example, those involved in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) know that a signal can only be considered to be of intelligent origin if it contains a code. The existence of a code would be considered strong evidence for intelligent origin. Mere regular repetition, such as that discovered in 1967 in pulsars, does not constitute intelligence.
Yet, evolutionists examining DNA see clearly that the molecules contain a code. Yet many evolutionists have compared this to the regularity of repetition seen in inorganic crystals. The standards applied in the vain search for extra-terrestrial intelligence are not applied to molecular biology. This is a clear inconsistency, and illustrates that evolutionists have a prior, and incorrect, presupposition. That is why we are comfortable in adopting the positive presuppositions that God exists and the Bible is true. The evidence is consistent with our presupposition, but not with that of the evolutionists.
Thank You, Lord, that we can trust as true everything that You have told us in Your Word.
