Dr. Maurice Rawlings

Dr. Maurice Rawlings is a specialist in cardiovascular diseases at the Diagnostic Centre and area hospitals of Chattanooga, and graduated with honours from the George Washington University Medical School. He served in both the Army and the Navy and became Chief of Cardiology at the 97th General Hospital in Frankfurt, Germany. He was promoted to personal physician at the Pentagon for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which included Generals Marshall, Bradley, and Dwight Eisenhower, before he became President of the United States

In civilian life Dr. Rawlings was appointed to the National Teaching Faculty of the American Heart Association, specialising in the teaching methods for the retrieval of patients from sudden death. He taught at various medical schools and hospitals and conducted courses for doctors and nurses in many countries.

Dr. Rawlings is the Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a member of the International Committee on Cardiovascular Diseases, a past Governor for the American College of Cardiology for the State of Tennessee, founder of the area’s Regional Emergency Medical Services Council, Faculty Instructor for the Advanced Cardiac Life Support programs, and Fellow of the American College of Physicians, the College of Cardiology, and the College of Chest Physicians. Dr Rawlings has written many articles on heart disease for national medical journals.

In addition, he has authored four books on Near Death Experiences: “Beyond Death’s Door”, “To Hell and Back”, “Life Wish: Reincarnation, Reality or Hoax?” and “Before Death Comes”.

All of the cases of near death experiences I had heard about, in all the resuscitation we had taught in many countries, had been good experiences, until one day I ran across a negative experience. It was because we started the interview whilst we were resuscitating the patient in the heat of battle.

This was a 47 year old man, a US mail carrier, exercising on the treadmill to reproduce this chest pain he complained about whilst doing exercise at home. Instead of just getting the pain his EKG went haywire and he dropped dead, moving the treadmill which swept him off like so much trash. The other doctors had left the building, but the nurses were still there and knew what to do. One started an IV and the other breathing with an AMBU bag, more aesthetic than mouth to mouth. I was doing the external heart compressions, and the patient kept saying, ‘Doctor, don’t stop!’ When I would stop to reach for something, he would say, ‘I’m in Hell again.’ Most patients would say, ‘Take your big hands off, you’re breaking my ribs.’ I knew something was wrong.

He had a complication whereby we had to put a pacemaker down his collarbone vein right there on the floor. It had a big effect on me. Blood was spurting everywhere, I was pushing and I told him to shut up and not to bother me with his Hell business. I was trying to save his life, and he was trying to tell me about some nefarious nightmare he’s had in the death throes. That’s what I thought until he kept saying it. The nurses gave me that look, as if to say, this is a dying man’s wish. He then asked me something that was the ultimate insult, which was, ‘Doctor, pray for me.’ I told him he that was out of his mind, I wasn’t a minister. Again he asked me to pray for him, and the nurses were still looking at me with anticipation. So I did. I made up a make-believe prayer, a nonsense. I just wanted to get him off my back so I told him to say it after me. ‘I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God.’ Go on, say it. ‘Please keep me out of Hell.’ Say it! ‘And if I live I’m on the hook, I’m yours forever.’ I remember that part well, because he’s been ‘on the hook’ ever since. He is a firm Christian man. Each time of interrupted CPR to adjust the pacemaker, he would convulse, turn blue, stop breathing, his heart would stop beating, and I’d reach over and start him up again like you can. Every time I’d let go, he’d be back in Hell.

After I said this prayer there were no more writhing experiences, no more negative fighting attitude. He was calm. I asked him the next day to tell me about being in Hell. I told him he had frightened the nurses to death, and he had scared the Hell out of me. He said, ‘What Hell? After that prayer you gave, I remember seeing my mother when she was living, although she had died when I was three years old.’ Impossible! He picked her out of a photograph album his aunt brought in next day, but he had never actually seen her. He identified her from her clothing. He had seen her in Heaven. What apparently happened was that he had sublimated the Hell experiences to painless parts of his memory, but after the conversion he had Heaven experiences.

That ‘nonsensical’ prayer I prayed to humour him not only got the man converted, but it got me too. We both became born again Christians.

I had specialised in retrieval methods long before this experience, and I would teach at medical school at the American Heart Association all over the world about how to set up retrieval practices from sudden death. Provided people know what to do, and the patient has not been in a mangled death, 50 per cent of clinical deaths can be brought back to life again. Teaching about Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation has been going on since 1973 and is getting better all the time. The problem is that the term ‘near death experience’ has become a bit of a wastebasket for all sorts of experiences, some involving bright lights but no death at all. We are trying to limit investigations into clinical death, where heart and breathing stop, and where a sequence of events is presented for analysis.

The first tissue to die, because it is most sensitive to blood flow, is the brain. There is a limit of four minutes before tissue death starts occurring in brain cells. Ten minutes without CPR could possibly produce idiocy or someone of a low grade IQ level. There are exceptions. We have a retrieval case in Oregon where a man was submerged in icy water for 45 minutes who was successfully revived from the hibernation effect.

About 18 per cent of the first 200 of cases that we managed to retrieve were Hell cases, and the percentage has increased subsequently, as more doctors are involved. Emergency room deaths have to be re-certified, and there are now a lot of people collecting information. The reported incidence of Hell experiences is now about 36 per cent, and closing on 50-50.

Many people experiencing Hell events actually block these from their consciousness because of the horror. Sometimes when being brought back, they scream about the flames of Hell. One particular experience I know of was of a movie actor in Houston, who was having his aorta repaired, when the cupola above him burst into flames and began descending upon him. Flames splattered about him and he saw a black figure approaching. When she beckoned him over to join her, he asked who she was and she said, ‘from the Angel of Death.’ She was in the foyer of Hell and he said he would not follow her. This episode turned his whole life around. While most experiences see lakes of fire, others just see outer darkness.

One of the latter was a doctor who had been watching football at college. He had been so excited by a spectacular run when he dropped dead. The ambulance crew assigned to the stadium defibrillated him. He had to choose pieces of a puzzle from a conveyor belt, under a penalty if it was wrong. There were no flames but he kept screaming, ‘I am in Hell.’ His wife was kneeling at the bedside praying. It turned out that this doctor did not want to be a Christian, because his wife was a Christian and he hated her and all Christians. Because this experience literally ‘scared the Hell out of him’, he became a Christian.

Many people have had good experiences limited to seeing light. There is one particular book, Embraced by the Light, but as a born-again Christian I have trouble with this book. Although it is a well- accounted story it claims our sins and faults are superfluous and that Jesus came to show love, and not to seek and to save the lost. It also purports that we all took part in the creation, assisting God, and therefore that sin is not our true nature. This goes completely against Scripture.

So many people are having these near death experiences, and believe they are in Heaven, but are not believers in Jesus. The ‘Angel of Light’ that they see at the end of the tunnel when they first die and get out of the body, seems to welcome them unconditionally regardless of what they had done. Theologians, on the other hand, tell us that even Satan can appear as an angel of light and deceive many, so I ask myself which light did they see?

One man who had killed two people in a parking lot was himself caught, shot three times in the chest, and then had this wonderful experience of light, after resuscitation. He later asked me whether God was a forgetful God, because this messenger of light was not from God in the first place. This man himself questioned the appropriateness of his experience.

On the other hand there are those who have seen the light with Christ on the cross, which serve to confirm their faith, and often becomes the greatest moment of their life. Now they know what’s going to happen to them when they die. So I believe that many of these ‘light’ experiences represent deliberate deceptions of Satan, who wants people to think that Heaven’s gates are open to everyone. Some people have even made a religion out of NDE’s called the ‘Omega Faith’. This is a case of not testing the spirit to see which light they have encountered.

Everyone wants to know what is going to happen to him or her when they die, and life after death is what eleven million people with NDE’s have claimed. Those who have had clinical death say they experience no pain at the moment of death – they just got out of the body. Those who have had bad experiences say they are afraid of dying. They are afraid of the Hell they saw.

There was one case of a blind man who, during his experience, could see perfectly well, and after the transition of death he could recall who was present, what they were doing, and even what they were wearing. But when he returned to his body, he returned to his blindness.

Others report going from this world into another world through a tunnel or something similar, and seeing a beam of light, or an angel of light. People who have had car accidents often describe how they had their lives reviewed before the car crashed. It would seem possible to have a whole day’s review in one split second. They then go on to the next world where they meet people, their friends, who have already died and describe strolling arm in arm across this beautiful Garden of Eden, or these pearly white gates, or golden streets. They then encounter a barrier beyond which they cannot go. Whether its because judgement is on the other side, and sorting out on this side, I don’t know, but usually at that barrier they are brought back into the world of pain, back where we are pushing on their chests or breaking their ribs, or defibrillating them with paddles. Whatever we are doing it is the world of pain, and they resent it because they didn’t want to come back if it was a good experience.

That’s the sequence, like everybody having the same dream last night, without any collusion or having read the same books at all. Anoxia cannot reproduce this, drugs can’t reproduce this, hypercarbia and so on down the line, cannot reproduce this.

There is also commonality with those who have had Hell experiences. The sequence is very fast, some zip right into the pit. For instance the father of the New Age movement, Karl Jung himself, had the Earth fall beneath him and right away he was into the ‘place of the damned’ as he called it. He saw a ball of fire in the middle of a lake and there he met Philemon the demon. This happened on December 13th 1930.

Of people who are resuscitated, 60 per cent have no experience, so only 40 per cent have these. If the person is a born again Christian, they have their dreams realised. They see Christ on the cross, and in some way they identify this Being of Light as Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

In 1930 British physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: 

“Nature seems very conversant with the rules of pure mathematics … In the same way, a scientific study of the action of the Universe has suggested a conclusion which may be summed up… in the statement that the Universe appears to have been designed by a pure mathematician… the Universe can best be pictured, although still very imperfectly and inadequately, as consisting of pure thought… If the Universe is a Universe of thought, then its Creation must have been an act of thought. Indeed the finiteness of space compels us to think of the creator as working outside time and space, which are part of his Creation, just as an artist is outside his canvas,” (The Mysterious Universe p 146).

Robert Shapiro wrote: 

“The improbability involved in generating even one bacterium is so large that it reduces all considerations of time and space to nothingness. Given such odds, the time until the black holes evaporate and the space to the ends of the Universe would make no difference at all. If we were to wait, we would truly be waiting for a miracle”,

Evolution is not a single science which can be studied in a laboratory, but a whole list of beliefs as long as infinity.

For example, we have listed a very few of the beliefs that Evolutionists teach as fact.

Evolutionists believe, among many other things, that:

1. The whole Universe arose, by chance, at an event widely known as the “”Big Bang.”

2. All of the matter in the Universe was contained, before the “Big Bang” in a “singularity.”

3. The “singularity” was infinitesimally small, incredibly heavy, and created itself!

4. The “Big Bang” happened purely by chance, approximately 13.75 billion years ago.

5. The “Big Bang” was the origin not only of matter, but of Space, Time, and Energy.

6. Space, Time, and Energy evolved simultaneously, all by chance, and all out of a “singularity,” which was infinitesimally small.

7. All of the 118 known elements evolved from Hydrogen and Helium, the elements of the Sun, a process known as “Chemical Evolution.”

8. The incredibly complex Galaxies, Solar System, the Sun, the Stars, Planets, moons around the planets, comets, asteroids, and space dust all evolved by pure chance. They all evolved from an initial source known as a “singularity.” This process is known as “Stellar and Planetary Evolution”.

9. The incredibly complex orbits of all known space bodies in the solar system, such as the planets, all occurred purely by chance.

10. The vast number of incredibly finely tuned parameters necessary for life on Planet Earth all evolved simultaneously and correctly, purely by chance.

11. Here is a very short list of just a few of these parameters, although there are millions of them:

  •  The temperature
  •  The magnetic field
  •  The partial pressure of all gases
  •  The rotation period of the Earth
  •  The gravitational forces in the Universe
  •  The water vapour saturation
  •  The availability of natural resources

12. There are literally millions of other finely tuned and interdependent parameters, which all have zero variation tolerance to maintain life.

13. According to Evolution this amazing number of interdependent parameters all spontaneously generated, perfect for life, with no error at all, purely by chance.

14. After this “self generation” of the Universe, “Primitive Life” arose, by chance, out of the “primordial ooze” some time after the Evolution of Planet Earth, 4.54 billion years ago. This process is known as “Spontaneous Generation.”

15. Nobody has ever seen life arising from an inanimate object, but Evolutionists insist this happened. This happened purely by chance, according to Evolutionists.

16. According to Evolution, “Primitive Life Forms” arose from inanimate matter, which contradicts the Laws of Biogenesis.

17. We would like to point out that all life forms contain DNA, the most highly complicated information storage medium ever known to mankind. No life form containing DNA could possibly be called “Primitive Life Forms” by anyone other than an Evolutionist!

18. This highly complex DNA, the incredibly complex design code used by all living creatures, also arose by chance, according to Evolution, by “Spontaneous Generation.”

19. According to Sir Fred Hoyle,

A super intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology … The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one to a number of 10 with 40 thousand noughts (zeros) after it. It is enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of Evolution. There was no primeval soup, neither on this planet nor on any other, and if the beginnings of life were not random they must therefore have been the product of a purposeful intelligence, (Nature: vol.294:105, Nov 12 1981).

DNA

20. Purely by chance, DNA, within the incredibly complex cells of all living organisms, could communicate with messenger RNA (called mRNA) so that perfect amino acids could be manufactured within all cells.

21. In other words the two design codes, DNA and mRNA, independently arose by chance, by Spontaneous Generation, with inbuilt messenger codes that, by chance, were identical!

22. As well as spontaneously generating themselves, DNA and mRNA were independently able to transmit and receive highly sophisticated messages to each other about the manufacture of highly specialised amino acids, all purely by chance!

23. The specialised manufacture of all other cells within all living organisms all “Spontaneously Generated” independently, simultaneously, and all by chance!

24. These cells included specialised cells such as skin cells, muscle cells, blood cells, brain cells, eye cells, liver cells, kidney cells, bone cells, and reproductive cells (to name just a few).

25. The cells that had spontaneously generated could spontaneously communicate with each other, purely by chance.

26. The ability of all living organisms to manufacture, replicate and repair highly specialised cells also arose, by chance.

27. Let us take the Spontaneous Generation of the eye, as an example.

According to Evolution: 

  • The cells of the cornea miraculously became transparent, permitting the passage of light, purely by chance.
  • Simultaneously highly sophisticated rods and cones developed within the retinas of the eyes of all living organisms, purely by chance.
  • These rods and cones spontaneously developed the ability to encode light into electrical impulses, which then travelled along the self manufactured Optic Nerves, which also arose spontaneously and simultaneously, and purely by chance.

Cerebral Cortex

  • Highly sophisticated cells within the Cerebral Cortex simultaneously spontaneously develop.
  • These highly specialised, self generating cells of the Cerebral Cortex could interpret these electrical impulses, and convert these electrical signals into stereoscopic sight, purely by chance.
  • The stereoscopic sight could then be interpreted by other self generating, highly sophisticated brain cells of the Cerebral Cortex, in a highly developed independent function called Thought and Subconscious Awareness.
  • The self generating higher cortical functions, thought and Subconscious Awareness, then influences the other Higher Cortical thoughts, and movements, both voluntary, and involuntary, of the whole body.
  • The whole brain, the most highly developed computer system known to man, also self generated independently, simultaneously, and perfect at the very first attempt, purely by chance.
  • The above is an incredibly simplified model of eyesight, which we all use every moment of our waking lives without thinking about it.
  • Evolution teaches that this amazing chain of “spontaneous and totally arbitrary events” occurred purely by chance.

28. Each cell in the human body is vitally dependent on other cells to survive, but, according to Evolution, this perfectly structured interdependent system all evolved simultaneously, perfectly functional and integrated, and purely by chance.

29. For example, a brain cell needs oxygen to survive for more than a few seconds, and is vitally dependent on the respiratory system and the circulatory system to provide that oxygen.

30. During the supposed millions of years required for the Evolutionary process to occur there was no room for error at all, or the brain cells would die.

31. However, according to Evolution this was no problem, because the Circulatory Systems and the Respiratory Systems all spontaneously self-generated, by chance, at exactly the same time, as well as all the physical structures to support these complex systems.

32. To ensure adequate oxygen supply to the brain cells, there was spontaneous generation of the alveoli, lungs, bronchial tubes, trachea, heart, blood vessels, capillaries, the blood-oxygen brain barrier, the specialised haemoglobin to carry the oxygen, and the blood itself.

33. According to Evolution, all of these structures and systems all developed, by chance, perfectly integrated, simultaneously, and working perfectly first time!

34. We would like to point out that there was no room for error at all. For example:

  • Without oxygen, brain cells die almost immediately.
  • Unless all of the systems involved with eyesight evolved absolutely perfectly first time, no eyesight is possible, and the life form would be blind.
  • Unless the Reproductive Systems of both males and females of all living species of all living animals, birds, fish, insects, and humans all evolved absolutely correctly, with perfect recognition of their own life forms, but rejection of all other life forms, then Reproduction is impossible.
  • This list is virtually without end, so we will leave the reader to think of all the other limitless “coincidences” that Evolution encompasses, all supposedly according to Chance.

35. Evolution teaches that all Anatomical, Physiological and Biochemical systems necessary for life, all spontaneously generated by chance, all perfectly functional, perfectly interdependent, and all by chance.

36. All the oxygen necessary for the survival of all animal life spontaneously arose, by chance.

37. All living organisms breathe in and metabolise oxygen, and exhale the waste products of combustion, carbon dioxide.

38. All plant cells do precisely the opposite, maintaining the equilibrium.

39. This amazing interdependent process, vital for all life, providentially also spontaneously arose purely by chance.

40. Chlorophyll in all vegetable matter harnesses the energy of the Sun, to manufacture vegetable plant structures and energy, and produces oxygen as a waste product.

41. This oxygen is vital for the life of all animal life forms. However, according to Evolutionists, this happened simultaneously, perfectly developed, at exactly the right time, and purely by chance. How very convenient and fortuitous for Evolution!

42. According to Evolution, “Primitive Life Forms” evolved very slowly.

43. We would like to point out that all of these “Primitive Life Forms” contain DNA, the most complex computer storage medium known to man, as well as the incredibly complex biochemical systems within each single cell.

44. By no stretch of any imagination could any life form be regarded as “Primitive”.

45. According to Evolution, “Complex Life Forms” arose by a process of Evolution known as Natural Selection, so that “poorly adapted” life forms could be removed by predators from the “Evolutionary Process”.

46. According to Evolution, “Primitive Life Forms” such as fish were subjected to the processes of Natural Selection, so that they evolved into more complex life forms, such as reptiles, mammals, and birds.

47. According to Evolution, eventually man evolved from the apes, through a series of intermediate forms.

48. According to Evolutionists, the whole process of Evolution was incredibly slow, and took millions of years, which is why nobody has ever actually seen one species of animal, fish or bird evolve into another species.

49. Evolutionists claim that Evolution is slowly happening all the time.

50. According to Evolutionists, the reason that Evolution cannot be observed in any zoo, farm, or household, let alone in the wild, is because Evolution happens so slowly that nobody has ever observed it.

51. According to the Theory of Evolution new species of animals, birds and fish should be found all the time, or at least one every few years.

52. We would like to point out that certain wildlife trusts exist world-wide to protect the number of threatened and endangered species of animals, birds, and fish.

53. The total number of species is actually declining every year, in spite of Evolution, which is supposed to produce new species!

54. All species of animals and humans are commonly seen in different forms, although nobody has eve seen a single species of any living organism change into another species!

55. We should clarify that we do NOT include micro-Evolution, which is variations within kinds of species, such as different species of dogs, cats, and horses, amongst many others.

56. Charles Darwin wrote an interesting book in 1859, “The Origin of the Species” about the length and breadth of the beaks of 14 endemic varieties of finches in the Galapagos Islands.

57. Charles Darwin’s famous book certainly proved beyond doubt Micro-Evolution but certainly did not prove either the Origin of Life or Macro-Evolution from one species to another, as is commonly supposed.

58. There was also an interesting study on pepper moths, with light and dark coloured wings.

59. These moths are known as Typica and Melanic pepper moths, and this study also proved Micro-Evolution, and also Natural Selection of species poorly adapted to their environment, but certainly not Macro-Evolution.

60. This study on moths demonstrated the process of Natural Selection of pepper moths poorly adapted for their environments, or variation within a kind, known as Micro-Evolution.

The above list contains just a very few of the very long list of interdependent beliefs that Evolutionists maintain are fact, and are taught as fact in virtually all schools and universities in the Western world. 

  • The above list could be literally extended to infinity, but we have chosen to highlight a few of the infinite number of beliefs that Evolutionists teach as proven fact.
  • Evolutionists tend to believe that their World View is the only view that is consistent with Science.
  • Of all of the above points, only the points concerning Micro-Evolution can be the subject of serious scientific study, since they are the only points that can be replicated in controlled and non-prejudiced, repeatable trials.
  • The Theory of Evolution is a Theory according to its name.
  • Because all of the teachings of Evolution cannot be proved or disproved, Evolution is a belief system, not a science.

Charles Darwin

The Theory of Evolution

Much of the following information has been adapted from the work on Dr David Rosevear, UK, web site:www.Creationsciencemovement.com

 

 
Charles Darwin and his book, “The Origin of the Species

– Charles Darwin wrote “The Origin of the Species” in 1859.

- What he observed was very small variation in the length and breadth of the beaks of finches. Finches are small birds found in the Galapagos Islands, off the Western cost of South America.

- Darwin actually noted variation within a species, or variation of a kind.

- These variations in the bird’s beaks were so minor that later visitors to the Islands had trouble identifying the variations.

- What Darwin actually observed was Micro-Evolution, or variation within one species of bird, which we all see all the time.

- Darwin need not have bothered to travel to the Galapagos Islands to observe Micro-Evolution, or variation within species.

- Everyone sees evidence of variation within a species all the time.

- Darwin did not observe Macro-Evolution, the changing of one species into another, for example a lizard turning into a bird.

- Macro-Evolution has never been observed by anybody.

- Darwin observed variation of a species within a kind, namely Micro-Evolution, which is commonly observed in every country in the world.

Macro-Evolution

- Macro-Evolution is defined as the mutation of one species to another species, and has never been observed.

- Since Evolution is supposed to happen very slowly, there should be plenty of examples of Evolution all around us, with new species being
formed all the time.

- However, no evolutionist has ever actually produced one living example of a species actually changing into another species.

- A number of fossil relics and skeletons have been produced, claiming to demonstrate Macro-Evolution.

- However, these fossil remains are hotly debated, some have been shown to be frauds, and Carbon Dating itself is not accepted by many Creationists.

- If Evolution was true, the total number of species in the world should be increasing every year.

- In fact, the number of species in the world is declining every year, according to the World Wildlife Organisation.

Micro-Evolution

Micro-Evolution is defined as the variation within one kind of species. There are large number of dogs found all over the world. Dog DNA has a gene pool for long legs, short legs, long hair, short hair, large bodies and small bodies etc. Since dogs share the same common gene pool, dogs may be interbred with other kinds of dogs, and the resultant dog is called a mongrel dog, with features common to both parents. The same may be found with cats, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, and many other animals commonly seen.

However, it is not possible to interbreed a dog with a rabbit. These different species do not share the same gene pool. In rare cases distantly related species may be interbred, such as a horse with a donkey. However, the resultant offspring is invariably sterile, and unable to continue this new “species”.

In Contrast with Macro-Evolution, Micro-Evolution is defined as the variation within one kind of species and is very commonly observed. Examples of Micro-Evolution include the variation between kinds of dogs, cats, birds, horses, and ducks.

Charles Darwin need not have bothered to travel to the Galapagos Islands, he could have easily noticed Micro-Evolution amongst domestic pets in his own home, or birds in his own garden. Charles Darwin did not observe Macro-Evolution, but Micro-Evolution, which is commonly observed on an everyday basis.

Melanic and Typica Pepper Moths

Melanic Pepper Moth

Melanic Pepper Moth

Another so called “proof” of Evolution, often quoted, is the natural selection of moths in England, according to the colour of their wings in England during the Industrial Revolution. At this time there was considerable industrial pollution near large cities, and black coal dust was deposited on the barks of trees, making the trees darker.

It was noticed that the moths with dark coloured wings, the Melanic moths, were better adapted to their environment, and were better camouflaged. The Melanic moths were therefore not as clearly seen by birds, their natural predators, as the moths with light coloured wings, known as the Typica pepper moths, against the dark bark of trees.

This discovery was hailed as a great breakthrough in proving Natural Selection by “Survival of the Fittest” as the mechanism for Evolution.

However, this Natural selection only applies within a kind, or species. It certainly applies to Micro-Evolution, and is commonly seen throughout mature. However, it certainly does not prove Macro-Evolution, which has never been observed anywhere.

Darwin proposed his Theory of Evolution on the basis of:

1. Variation within species, using his example of the length and breadth of finches’ beaks in the Galapagos Islands.

2. Survival of the fittest, strongest and best adapted animals.

3. Gene mutation as his proposed method for providing new genetic information fro new species or kinds of living organisms.

Gene Mutation does NOT provide new useful genetic information

Mutation in the DNA code within every cell of every living organism is commonly observed, and can be caused by:

1. Radiation

2. Chemicals

3. Disease

However, all actual observed Gene Mutations cause disease or malformation. Examples of these include:

1. Down’s syndrome.

2. Spina bifida.

3. Anencephaly (absent head).

4. Tragic foetal abnormalities caused by drugs such as Thalidomide.

5. Tragic increase of cancer following the nuclear explosion in Chernobyl.

6. Tragic increase in cancer following the nuclear explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Conclusion: Gene mutation, as proposed by Charles Darwin, according to actual observation does NOT lead to the development of a new gene pool, and does NOT lead to a new species.

Natural Selection does NOT lead to Macro-Evolution

  • Natural selection provides no new genetic information from which a new species can evolve.
  • Natural selection actually preserves the species, rather than encouraging the Evolution of a mutant.
  • Mutations, as actually observed, are abnormal mutations, which are selected against.

Science does NOT support Evolution

- Darwin postulated that Evolution occurs very slowly, but there are no intermediate fossil forms.

- All observed information systems, as found in DNA, require an outside programming Intelligence, such as a Designer, a Creator, God.
“Simple” life forms, such as Amoebas are in fact incredibly complex, because these unicellular organisms contain DNA.

- Evolution is not supported by Molecular Biology.

- For example, different kinds of fish and animals have different haemoglobin.

- To create anything, on this planet, or in the Universe, you need both Power and Information.

- Information cannot create itself, and cannot harness itself in the highly complex DNA of all living organisms without and Outside Agency, Who the Bible refers to as God.

10. In the rest of the world, predominantly Second and Third World societies, Evolution is regarded as absurd.

11. Evolutionists love to talk about “Primitive Life Forms,” which do not exist in the real world. If life is so “simple” and “primitive”, these clever people should have no problem at all creating a “simple life form” in a laboratory. So far, they have not.

23. In order to have a serious discussion about either Creation or Evolution, an unprejudiced person will have to abandon concepts that Science has “proved Evolution.”

24. Science cannot prove or disprove Creation or Evolution.

25. Instead we all have to make observations about our Solar system and our Planet Earth, and come to conclusions based on our observations. This does not involve the use of the normal scientific method.

26. To study both Creation and Evolution we have to use a different method, but this is the only method that is available to us. We can make observations and conclusions, but we cannot test these theories.

27. We believe that the process of actual scientific observation and conclusion very strongly supports Creation, as we intend to demonstrate.

After nearly four weeks in Queen Alexandra Hospital, I have been sent home, complete with wheelchair, Zimmer Frame and crutches! These are for a few weeks only, until I am walking normally!

I am well on the way to a total and complete recovery, with no residual problems at all! I am so excited I can hardly contain my excitement!

I am so grateful to the Lord for sparing my life, and protecting me! According to both the police and the paramedics most cyclists would have been killed outright in such an accident.

Birgit Whelan (of Revelation TV) sent Richard a special verse: Psalm 118:17 “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord”. I prayed this verse constantly, and God has certainly answered this prayer! Thank you, God! Thank you, Birgit, too!

On Friday 24th June 2011 I was cycling on a B road, and a car drove into the back of my bicycle, as you can see from the picture!

The Remains of Richard's bicycle

 

My helmet saved my life, and I will be offering my free services to the manufacturers to promote the wearing of helmets by all cyclists (many cyclists do not wear helmets, as you can see on the roads every day!)

My heart rhythm went into Ventricular Fibrillation in the ambulance. I used to be a Registrar Anaesthetists, and very few patients survive this.

The team at Casualty had great difficulty stabilising me, with my very low blood pressure, very low pulse, loss of blood, and a very low body temperature. My daughter Emma, a Senior Midwife, was informed that the prognosis was very uncertain. As a Anaesthetist, I have personally treated a large number of patients in this condition, and hard facts are that the vast majority die.

I was in Critical Care for 48 hours. Whilst in hospital, I received a total of 4 units of blood, and a lot of other intravenous fluids as well.

I sustained a fractured Right Tibia and Fibula, Fractured Lumbar and Sacral Spine, Dislocated finger, and multiple fractured ribs. Miraculously, there is no neurological problem whatever, and I have my full mental faculties (although many would comment that my mental faculties were not too brilliant before the accident!)

I have also survived a Deep Vein Thrombosis in my right calf, which is always potentially fatal, since a clot often travels to the heart and kills the patient- this is one of the commonest causes of death in hospital. I am now on full therapeutic Heparin injections for 12 weeks.

I also survived consolidation and infection of my right lung, with temperatures of 39C and uncontrollable shivering, which required intravenous antibiotics for 10 days.

Basically I have been spared death on a number of occasions, and am so grateful to the Lord to be alive!

I would very much like to thank the management, presenters, staff and viewers of Revelation TV “Church Without Walls”, as well as whole churches in many countries, for the hundreds of cards, letters, and e-mails from all over the world.

I have been frankly amazed at the number of cards, letters, and e-mails received, and cannot express adequately how grateful I am for all the well wishes, and the prayers of so many lovely people over a very difficult time for our very close family.

Roger and Sue French of Living Word Church, Portsmouth, could not have been more kind and helpful, as well as all of the members of his wonderful church. In addition, the doctors and nurses at Queen Alexandra Hospital were all outstanding.

In summary, I have a lot more friends than I thought I had! I would like to extend my warmest wishes to everyone, family, friends, and Christians from many countries.

In addition I have received identical visions over many nights whilst in hospital about how we all enter Eternity when we die. I am still trying to understand this vision, and am getting help from experts in Mathematics and Physics in Derek Walker’s church! I hope to make a short TV programme about it when I have finally understood it!

Lesley Conder, Gordon Pettie, and Doug Harris have very kindly invited me to attend the next “Building The Foundation” on Revelation TV on 9th August 2011. I am very much looking forward to attending! Someone from my church will gladly bring me.

I am whizzing all over the place in my wheelchair, and becoming a general menace to everyone! Val says I am like a puppy, and should behave myself, and maybe wear a crash helmet, unless I slow down a bit!

With special love and thanks to everyone,

Richard

 

A. 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:

big bang theory

1. All observed explosions are destructive and not constructive.

2. Explosions cause spontaneous degeneration and not spontaneous generation.

3. 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.

B. 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.

spontaneous generation theory

C. 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!

D. 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:

1. Kinetic Energy

2. Potential Energy

3. 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.

E. 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.
For example:

- 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 Coliseum in Rome 

The ColosseumThe Coliseum is not getting in a more ordered state by itself, but is in fact becoming less ordered, and will eventually collapse completely.

Evolutionists 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.
