"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen" (Rom 1:20)

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes 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)
Yes modern day science and the Bible are at odds. Evolution teaches that our world evolved over millions of years. From nothing to staggering complexity. From nothing to man, animals, plants, planets and solar systems. Yet the simplest living thing is a wonder of ingenious design. The very eyes used to read this short article can see images instantly in three colorful dimensions, effortlessly. Every organ in the human body possesses the same incredible perfections and all work together! Lungs inhale air containing oxygen which is passed to the blood which in turn is passed to cells providing energy for the body. Carbon dioxide is removed from these same cells and exhaled through the lungs. Kidneys cleanse the blood and on and on the marvel of the human body unfolds. The Bible claims that we, and all in our world, were created. Evolution claims that our world is a product of random chance. Pope Fracsis has recently attempted to marry the two by saying “when we read about creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so” and, “evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.”

This may satisfy those who seek the comfort of a middle ground but it is utterly contrary to the Word of God! According to the Bible our world was created in six days and that moment of creation took place about 6 thousand years ago! Evolution rests on the argument that given enough “time” anything can happen. This however is not science. A theory of science is repeatable and observable. Evolution is not a theory, it’s an hypothesis. Evolution is faith. A faith placed in man. 

The Bible states that man is “without excuse” because the things of God are “clearly seen” in His creation.  We believe “all things were made through Him [Christ]” (Gospel of John 1:3)
