Email number 1 of 2 from “Jim”: I can't believe some of the claims you make in the videos on your website. I doubt that you're even human because a chimpanzee could make better conclusions. You BLATANTLY SPEW GARBAGE FROM YOUR MOUTH and I can't help but be horribly enraged by the things you say. The Bible does NOT need to be taken literally. Its not right for you to tell people you’re horribly uneducated opinion. It would be kind of me to lay out all of your mistakes but I don’t have a lifetime to spend correcting your mistakes. I was watching your video just to see what kind of ridiculous things you said. You are COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY WRONG. WOW!
My response, number 1 of 2: Speaking of "horribly uneducated opinions", thanks for your email. I do not normally respond to a person who fails to identify him or herself, but your email was so full of hate that I decided to point out that you point out ZERO mistakes or non-truths. I say you have none. I've spoken in college debates and on college campuses many times. If you know of a mistake, please advise. Russ
Second Emails (blended together):
Jim- My names Jim. I’m a Physics Major. I don’t feel there was any hate in my email.
R- We'll let the first email go.
J- Honestly, I can’t point out specific errors with any contradictory proof
R- I knew that, just wanted you to see it.
J- I can say I think to say every animal evolved from what noah had on the ark is ridiculous.
R- It is much more viable to think animals adapted from other animals on the ark than to claim they evolved from non-living chemicals as Darwinism teaches.
J- I can ask you why dinosaurs aren’t here today.
R- Most couldn't survive the post-flood loss of climate and habitat. The word dinosaur was invented in 1841, prior to that they were called dragons. Recent finds of their bones containing soft , amino acids, DNA and blood cells attest to the fact they haven't been gone long.
J- I can ask where all the water came from that covered the earth.
R- From the fountains of the deep which erupted.
J- You seem to think that the entire earth flooded.
R- Geologic compression events, polystrata fossils, (see C-14 evidence below) and much more attest to this fact.
J- There's not enough water to flood the entire earth.
R- 71% of the earth's surface is covered by water. If the surface of the earth were flat the water would be almost 2 miles deep. Plenty of water.
J- Darwin OBSERVED natural selection and adaption,(a completely fair concept)
R- And Biblically sound as kinds bring forth after their kind.
J- and THEORIZED natural selection as a method of macro evolution.
R-This is where he went wrong. A key issue is where did the genetic information come from to cause any changes? Macro has never been observed (one kind changing into a different kind) as Gene Depletion, the Law of Entropy, etc., show macro is impossible. Natural selection can only act on pre-existing traits. And no, not by mutations, as falsely taught today (Neo-Darwinism). Mutations are caused by the loss of data, never by the creation of new and beneficial data.
J- If the world was 6000-8000 years old, I would disagree with darwin. If it was a billion years old, I would say his theory is likely.
R-Thus the importance of the global flood which destroys all old earth beliefs.
J- How do you account for scientific aging methods like carbon dating.
R-Measurable C-14 should be gone in less than 100,000 years (most scientists agree). Yet all the fossil bearing layers, down to the supposed 600 million year old Cambrian have C-14 in them, and in the same range of amounts! This proves the layers formed recently and in the same event. Only a global flood can explain this, destroying all old earth beliefs.
J- Thank you for reading this.
R- Jim, thanks for your interest. These are excellent questions. Millions of people, including many in churches, have the same questions and this is the reason for CESM. Our seminars answer each of these questions in more detail Hang in there and seek the Truth. I will pray that God will show it to you. God bless, Russ
NOTE: Try not to let them get you mad. I find that sticking to scientific facts with non-believers, while focusing on God's Word with Biblio-skeptics within the Church, is the best course of action. So keep your composure, the Truth is on your side!
