Mormonism and Evolution - Who Wins??
Elder Russell M. Nelson, of the Quorum of the Twelve, who is a medical doctor by training, said this about the theory of evolution: "Could an explosion in a printing shop produce a dictionary ... [that could] heal its own torn pages or reproduce its own newer editions?"
Elder Nelson is basically asking: "How could a gigantic, accidental explosion [i.e. the Big Bang], and a massive number of mindless accidents [i.e. evolution], have created the DNA strands [i.e. dictionaries] of many thousands of complex species of plants and animals (and many species have the ability to heal some of their own wounds); where each species came to exist by random, accidental mutations to DNA?"
Elder Nelson was not asking a question, he was making a statement: "evolution could not have happened."
The truth is that randomness has never been proven to create anything that is highly complex; but human cells, and the DNA inside of those cells, is far, far beyond incomprehensible complexity and sophistication.
Elder Nelson is not the only critic of the theory of evolution. There are many other scientists today who strongly oppose the theory of evolution on scientific grounds.
As another example, when you see an automobile driving down the road do you think that this automobile was created by an explosion in a junkyard?? Of course not. Automobiles are designed and built by engineers and technicians who have many years of training.
Yet human DNA and human cells are many thousands of times more sophisticated and complex than any automobile!! After studying DNA since 1953, scientists still only understand about 3% of human DNA!! They are totally clueless about what the other 97% is used for!! But that 97% is obviously vital for any human being!!
Human DNA is so sophisticated that a single cell, with a single DNA strand, namely the DNA inside the fertilized egg of a mother-to-be, has the intelligence on the DNA to create an entire baby which has 30 billion cells, 60,000 miles of blood vessels and an incredible brain, liver, pancreas, lymph system, etc. etc.!!
I should also mention that the 60,000 miles of blood vessels must be fully enclosed before blood starts to circulate or else the baby would bleed to death before it was born!!
And while the new baby is morphing, 600 trillion genes, inside the new cells, need to be told whether to be activated or not.
Human DNA is literally the most sophisticated computer program on the planet earth!!!
Human DNA is so sophisticated that no team of biologists and engineers on this planet can even begin to understand it, much less design the 3.2 billion nucleotides on the DNA of the fertilized egg in a human mother!! In fact, they could not design it in a thousand years!!!
Yet the atheists who write books defending the theory of evolution want everyone to believe that the most sophisticated computer program on this planet was created by a series of undirected errors!! Yet they have never proven that anything 1/1,000,000th of 1% as complex as human DNA has ever been created by a series of accidents.
Random accidents (i.e. evolution) could not have created human DNA, which is literally the world's most sophisticated computer program!!
With the ongoing discoveries about the complexity of DNA and the ongoing discoveries of the complexity of what goes on inside of cells, the theory of evolution has become totally absurd. Random mutations to DNA don't create intelligence.
So why would anyone claim the theory of evolution is true? The reason is that the leading atheists consider the theory of evolution to be their best recruiting tool, in spite of the fact that the theory of evolution is scientific nonsense because of the discovery of DNA, the complexity of DNA and the sophistication of what is going on inside of cells (where the DNA lives and is protected).
For example, the atheists and evolutionists claim that "natural selection" is the "engine" that drives the theory of evolution!! This is nonsense, natural selection can only DESTROY animals AFTER they are created!!
Natural selection has nothing to do with creating anything, it can only destroy things after they are created. Animals can only be created by unbelievably complex DNA, not by lions eating gazelles (i.e. natural selection).
The theory of evolution is scientific nonsense. Accidents don't create anything that is highly sophisticated and human DNA is the most sophisticated computer program on this planet by a wide margin!!
If it weren't for the atheists, who are always looking to get converts to atheism (via evolution), the discovery of DNA would have demolished the theory of evolution overnight in 1953.
But the scientific establishment is loaded with atheists who are too proud to admit that a God could exist who is smarter than they are. The theory of evolution is designed to eliminate their competition (i.e. a belief in God).
Why Do Some Church Leaders Defend Evolution?
Most church leaders are not scientists. Be that as it may, most church leaders are definitely not experts in the evolution debate. Elder Nelson is a surgeon, so he definitely understands the debate.
To be more specific, very few church leaders could correctly explain the difference between microevolution (variety within a species, such as the difference between a Great Dane and a Chihuahua) and macroevolution (a different DNA structure, such as the difference between the DNA of a monkey and the DNA of a human).
Microevolution has absolutely nothing to do with true evolution because there is no new DNA structure, there is only variety within a single species.
Some church leaders may be shown perfectly valid examples of microevolution and they did not understand that examples of microevolution have absolutely nothing to do with true evolution!!
Evolutionists love to use examples from microevolution to claim they have found examples of "macroevolution," meaning true evolution.
For example, in the book by atheist Richard Dawkins, The Greatest Show on Earth - The Evidence For Evolution, he does not even mention the words microevolution or macroevolution, yet he uses example after example of microevolution (which has nothing to do with true evolution) and then he claims he has proven that "evolution" is true. The entire book is a lie!!
Such deceptions are very common by the atheists. This is what causes confusion among those who are not familiar with the technical definitions of key terms.
Literally, the only way evolutionists can get "evidence" for true evolution (macroevolution) is to use a variety of deceptions. Macroevolution has NEVER been observed or proven to have happened!!!
Because of the clever deceptions of atheists, no one should be ashamed of believing in the theory of evolution!! Virtually everyone on this earth has been exposed to massive numbers of lies and deceptions by atheists and evolutionists!!
The two free eBooks and articles on this website go into great detail about the difference between microevolution and macroevolution. In fact, one book has seven chapters on the way that evolutionists use tricky definitions to get bogus evidence for the theory of evolution.
The First Book To Describe Evolution Was NOT Written By Darwin
The Book of Mormon, which was published in New York in 1830, did not have to wait for Darwin or the discovery of DNA to criticize the theory of evolution. The Book of Mormon was very critical of the theory of evolution 29 years before Darwin wrote his first book about evolution!! And the Book of Mormon was published more than 120 years before DNA was discovered.
The Book of Mormon is a religious history book, like the Bible, but was written by prophets who lived in the Americas and it covers a period of time from the Tower of Babel to about 400 A.D.
While the Book of Mormon describes the theory of evolution in detail, the person who taught the theory of evolution in the Book of Mormon was the only enemy of Christ's church who was referred to as an "anti-Christ" (Alma 30:6).
The name of the "anti-Christ" was Korihor, who preached in 74 B.C., which was before the birth of Christ.
No doubt part of the reason Korihor was called the "anti-Christ" was because he taught that God did not exist (Alma 30:28, 37-38, 43, 48, see: 52-53) and that Christ would never be born (Alma 30:6, 12-13, 15, 23, 26). He also taught that Adam and Eve never existed (Alma 30:25) and he taught natural selection (Alma 30:17).
All of Korihor's doctrines were, item by item, exactly the opposite of the doctrines taught by the prophets in his day (74 B.C.), such as Ammon and Alma the Younger. All of the other enemies of the church mentioned in the Book of Mormon taught a mixture or truth and error. But everything Korihor taught was the opposite of the truth.
The reason everything Korihor taught was the opposite of the doctrines of Christ was that Korihor was also the only enemy of the church who was taught his doctrines by a personal appearance of the devil (Alma 30:42, 53)!!
This may explain why Korihor was also the only enemy of the church who was commanded to be struck dumb by a prophet of God, Alma the Younger (Alma 30:49-50).
The great prophet Alma the Younger described Korihor's doctrines as being designed so that "[the devil] may destroy the children of God" (Alma 30:42). This was Alma the Younger's description of the goal of what we now call: the theory of evolution!!
The Book of Mormon was predicting the coming forth of the false and anti-Christ doctrines of the theory of evolution and is a warning to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (i.e. LDS church or Mormon church), and to all others, about these false doctrines!!
The Evolution Debate
While there are more than 250 books which are favorable to the theory of evolution there are also more than 250 books which are strongly critical of the theory of evolution!!
Those who are critical of the theory of evolution are called "creation scientists" or "creationists" because they believe the scientific data favors a "Creator" of the Universe.
For example, where did the massive amount of energy needed for the Big Bang come from, assuming it ever happened? The Big Bang is a clear violation of the First Law of Thermodynamics!! And why was this energy clustered in one location and had not dissipated? The Big Bang theory is absolute nonsense.
Only in the fantasyland of the theory of evolution could a single object (or no object at all) accidentally explode to create millions and millions of galaxies and then billions of years later accidentally create the earth and human DNA, the most sophisticated object on earth.
But God does not need to use deceptions and lies to get followers. Just look at the night sky!! The stars and galaxies and galaxy clusters and superclusters were not created by accident (i.e. the Big Bang), as atheists want you to believe, they were created by God.
Yet every time there is a new discovery about the sophistication of DNA, human cells, anatomy, astronomy, etc. the evolutionists, most of whom are atheists, come up with some new spin so they can claim that what was discovered came to exist by accident so they can assign the discovery to the theory of evolution!!
In fact, it doesn't matter how absurd the theory of evolution is because the theory of evolution is such a fantastic recruiting tool for atheism. Because atheists dominate the scientific establishment, the theory of evolution is not going away any time soon!! If you want to get published in a leading biology journal you better be an atheist and your article better support the theory of evolution.
The theory of evolution is primarily supported by scientists who are atheists who are looking to get converts to atheism. But because of the complexity of DNA and cells, the atheists must use deception to get converts. Unraveling their deceptions is what much of this website (and its two free eBooks) is about.
More on the Science of Evolution
As more and more is learned about the sophistication of DNA, the complexity of what goes on inside of cells, and many, many other issues, the theory of evolution has become less and less credible.
As already mentioned, human DNA is so sophisticated that a single cell, with a single DNA strand, namely the fertilized egg inside of a mother-to-be, has the intelligence built-in to create an entire baby which has 30 billion cells, 60,000 miles of blood vessels and an incredible brain, liver, pancreas, etc.!!
I call the algorithms on DNA, which allow a single cell to morph into a human baby, the "morphing of the embryo" algorithms on DNA. No human can even begin to comprehend these algorithms. It would be like an ant trying to comprehend calculus.
Here is another example of the complexity of DNA. The DNA of the male and the DNA of the female mix together and end up with a baby which has some features of both the father and mother.
Try doing that with two computer programs!! Write two complex computer programs that are similar, but do many things differently. Then randomly mix the binary code of the two computer programs and see if you end up with a new computer program that has features of both original computer programs. It would never work in a million years!! The new program will not even run.
In addition, if a couple has seven children, excepting twins, every one of them will look different and have different personalities. But even identical twins have different personalities.
Yet the DNA of the mother and father do not change one iota between the day they were born until the day they die.
How would you like to sit in jail until you could design human DNA for both a male and female that could create a baby with all of the above features and many more features??
How would you like to sit in jail until evolution (i.e. a series of billions of pure accidents) could create human DNA for both a male and female that could create a baby with all of the above features and many more features??
Evolutionists must think that totally random accidents (evolution) are far more effective at "designing" DNA than human beings because certainly no human could ever design human DNA from scratch!!!
But if humans could not design and create human DNA in a million years, how did millions of years of totally random accidents (i.e. evolution) create human DNA??
So why do evolutionists, even after the discovery of DNA, claim that a series of accidents (i.e. evolution) created the DNA of the mother and father??
The reason is that the leading evolutionists have a hidden agenda.
The "Hidden Agenda" of Evolutionists
Author and attorney Phillip E. Johnson explains the hidden agenda of the evolutionists:
Read that quote two or three times, it is an amazing statement.
In other words, many in the scientific establishment are atheists, thus they do not believe that God exists, so they set as their goal to get converts to atheism. To do this they find: "the most plausible" scientific theory they can invent to get converts to atheism!"
And we know "the most plausible" scientific theory they can invent to support atheism is the "theory of evolution."
To the leading atheists, like Richard Dawkins and Peter Atkins, scientific evidence is irrelevant. All that matters to them is popularity and converts.
What Did Darwin Know?
In defense of Darwin, when Darwin developed the theory of evolution, scientists knew absolutely nothing about DNA (they did not even know DNA existed) and they knew absolutely nothing about the complexity of what is going on inside of cells.
Because early scientists knew nothing about DNA and what is going on inside of cells, they thought that life was simple and that life was created by a series of accidents, which they called "evolution."
It wasn't until 1953, with the discovery of DNA, that the theory of evolution could easily be disproven.
In fact, every example of "evolution" that Darwin observed was an example of microevolution!! But because scientists in his day knew nothing about DNA, they could not have known that microevolution has absolutely nothing to do with true evolution.
Atheists today know about the complexity of human DNA and human cells so they have no excuse for their false claims!!
As this website shows in many different ways, because of the discovery of DNA and the complexity of cells, the theory of evolution has become scientific nonsense.
The truth is that the Universe and human DNA was designed by God, the very person who the atheists don't want people to believe in. I will talk about where God came from below.
But the evolutionists are so clever that it is easy to be deceived by the clever lies and hidden agendas of the atheists.
Another Example of Why Evolution Cannot Be True
Evolutionists claim that the DNA of the father and the DNA of the mother "evolved" independently over millions of years by a series of accidents called "evolution"!!!
How did the DNA of the father and mother "evolve" together? How was their DNA synchronized, species after slightly improved species, as the DNA of the males and females evolved independently for millions of years??
For example, if the male DNA evolved slightly faster than the female DNA evolved, within hundreds of thousands of years their DNA would not align and they would not have been able to have any children that survived because their DNA was not compatible!!
Male DNA and female DNA had to be designed by the same person at the same time - God. Evolution could never have designed two massively sophisticated computer programs (DNA) that could be integrated together to create a third computer program (a baby).
Yet the atheists claim that evolution created male and female DNA for many species that have both a male and female. They must claim the male and female DNA "evolved" over the same time period (so they could mate as they slowly evolved over many generations) and they had to live in the same geographical area (also required so they could mate).
But the truth is that it does not matter what is discovered in cell biology, DNA analysis, etc. because no matter what is discovered, the theory of evolution will be given credit for it by the atheists!!
We have talked a little about DNA, so let's talk a little about the "cells" which contain the DNA.
Human cells, which contain the DNA, the proteins made from the DNA, organelles, intercellular "highways," chemical chain reactions, etc. are also massively more sophisticated and complex than any automobile!!
Cells are so sophisticated that many scientists, every year, get PhDs in Cell Biology!!
YouTube videos, which graphically show the sophistication of what is going on inside of cells, will be mentioned in a moment.
The evolution debate is not about science, it is about God. If you assume God does not exist, or if you believe God does not exist, you will likely believe in the theory of evolution no matter how absurd it is.
The theory of evolution is the story-telling of the atheists to get converts.
Many people who believe in God have been tricked into believing in evolution. In fact, that is the precise purpose of the theory of evolution and why it is taught in most schools (but not all schools).
Biology is no longer about science, it is about creative thinking as to how every discovery can be attributed to the theory of evolution in order to get more converts to atheism.
The deceptions and lies of the atheists are so sophisticated and so clever, there is no shame in a person believing in the theory of evolution. Every student is bombarded with massive numbers of sophisticated deceptions.
But as the two free eBooks and articles on this website demonstrate, the theory of evolution is nothing but the clever deceptions of the atheists.
Genes and Evolution
Here is another problem evolutionists have in defending the theory of evolution. There are about 20,000 genes on human DNA. Each must be "expressed" (i.e. turned on) or "not expressed" (i.e. turned off). The information to turn a gene on or off, for each cell, must come from the DNA of that cell.
But every cell has the same DNA!! So why do different cells have different combinations of genes turned on or off??
Multiply 20,000 genes (which are expressed differently in different types of cells), by 30 billion cells in a newborn baby and the resulting number is far larger than the 3.2 billion nucleotides on DNA. The number is 600 trillion genes!!
This means that for each nucleotide on the DNA strand, there are 187,500 genes (600 trillion genes divided by 3.2 billion nucleotides) which need to be expressed or not expressed!!
In other words, 600 trillion genes, in the cells of the newborn baby, need to know whether to be activated/expressed or not. But there are only 3.2 billion nucleotides on DNA to tell them whether to be expressed or not expressed and each cell has exactly the same DNA!!
Remember, a human being starts out as one cell (the fertilized egg) which has a single DNA strand with 3.2 billion nucleotides on it and then this cell starts dividing. Every cell in a human being has exactly the same DNA.
No new information can be added during the morphing of the embryo process because nothing from outside the new baby is integrated into the baby other than milk and food.
So how can each nucleotide on DNA, which has one of four states (A, C, G or T) control the expression of 187,500 genes?? And remember, the DNA also needs the information to control the morphing of the embryo!!
There is simply not enough information on DNA to control all of the activities that are going on inside and outside the cells as the baby is being created!!
And even if there was enough information via compression algorithms, the algorithms on DNA would have to be so sophisticated and incomprehensible that they could not have come to exist by a series of accidents!!
Why don't most biology textbooks talk about these and many other problems with the theory of evolution? Because they want to pretend the theory of evolution is true!!
The Complexity of Cells
There is human DNA inside of every cell (except some red blood cells), but human DNA is not the only highly sophisticated object inside the cells. There are many other complex objects, some of which were created by the genes on the DNA.
I own a book on Cell Biology called Essential Cell Biology, Third Edition, by Alberts, Bray, Hopkin, Johnson, Lewis, Raff, Roberts and Walter. It is a large book with 731 pages!! A section header on page 410 reads: Transmitter-gated Channels in Target Cells Convert Chemical Signals Into Electrical Signals."
I also own a book called The World of the Cell by Becker, Kleinsmith and Hardin. This is a large book with 845 pages in the Fourth Edition. For example, on page 763 there is a section header with the title: Microtubules Are Regulated by Microtubule-Associated Proteins (MAPs).
I also own a book called The Dictionary of Cell and Molecular Biology by J.M. Lackie. It is 725 pages and the print is small.
Not all of the terms in these two books are related to human cell biology, but many of them are. How could anyone read these books and think that the cells in any species, including human beings, "evolved" from a series of accidents which started in a "warm pond" millions of years ago!!
Another major evidence for a creation is human anatomy. You may think that human anatomy is simple. It is not. Dr. David Menton has an 8 DVD set which details the amazing complexity and sophistication of the human body. He talks about why bones are hollow, why we have ligaments, fibrocartilage, tendons, and so on.
So why would anyone believe the theory of evolution after the ongoing discoveries about the sophistication of DNA and the complexity of cells and the sophistication of human anatomy?
The reason is that the leading evolutionists are atheists and they write most of the textbooks. The textbooks never talk about the severe problems with the theory of evolution and instead the books contain a wide-range of clever deceptions!!
"Evolution" is nothing but the clever deceptions of leading atheists who claim that there is no God and that the entire Universe, and the DNA of all species, came to exist by nothing but a series of accidents!! How can someone even claim that a "series of accidents" (i.e. evolution) created the Universe and the most sophisticated object on earth - human DNA - plus the unique DNA of thousands of other species?
Even a bacteria is more complex than a Buick. For example, some types of bacteria can divide into two bacteria in less than twenty minutes. But a Buick can never divide into two Buicks.
So why would anyone believe that a Buick was created by human intelligence, but the far, far more sophisticated cells in a human being, including the "morphing of the embryo algorithms" on the DNA of a human being, were made by a long sequence of pure accidents??
As more and more is understood about:
In addition, DNA is self-correcting. There are enzymes that constantly go up and down the DNA in the cell, looking for mistakes and these enzymes fix these mistakes as they find them, if they can!!
Randomness never creates anything that is highly sophisticated and functional so how could the world's two most sophisticated and functional objects (male and female human DNA) have been created by randomness??!!
But no matter how much evidence is brought against the theory of evolution, most atheists will never admit they are wrong. And many others are deceived by the clever deceptions of the hard-core atheists, who are proud to admit they are atheists.
The theory of evolution may sound simple, but because of new discoveries it is obvious that no series of accidents could have occurred in a warm pond millions of years ago to create the "first living cell" - as the theory of evolution claims.
In 1859, when Darwin published his first book, there was no reason not to believe the theory of evolution because DNA had not been discovered and thus the difference between microevolution and macroevolution could not be determined.
But with the discovery of DNA, and the massive amount of intelligence on DNA, Darwin's theories have been disproven.
Every example of "evolution" that Darwin observed was an example of microevolution. Not once did he, or has anyone else, observed an example of macroevolution. But in Darwin's day, because DNA had not been discovered, he did not know the difference.
In fact, today the three terms: species, microevolution and macroevolution are three of the main terms which evolutionists cleverly and intentionally obfuscate in order to get phony "evidence" for the theory of evolution!!
The only way that atheists can get "evidence" for the theory of evolution, and thus converts, is to use deceptive definitions. It takes seven chapters in one of the free eBooks to properly define the key terms in biology which are relevant to the theory of evolution.
Could a Simple Cell Exist?
Evolutionists understand the problems with creating a human cell from scratch, so they claim that the "first living cell" was a simple cell and that numerous increasingly complex cells "evolved" between the "first living cell" and human cells.
First of all, there are no "simple cells." Even the simplest cell on this earth has DNA (except for some red blood cells, however, there is no way these red blood cells can divide!!) and inside each cell is also an incredible, miniature factory.
"Simple cells" cannot have been created by evolution because all cells must:
All of these things, and many others, would have to happen at the same time in the same warm pond, and it must happen very quickly because all these things must happen inside the one-and-only "first living cell"!! What nonsense!!
Furthermore, evolutionists claim that life on this earth started with a single cell and gradually over time more and more complex species "evolved" until human DNA existed. This means that multiple cells must eventually be able to work together to accomplish major tasks, such as "seeing" for advanced species.
As cells got more complex, and as multiple cells started making more complex species, the DNA would constantly need to get longer and more complex. There would have to be hundreds of "intermediate species" before human DNA could exist.
However, it would be massively more difficult to create human DNA by a sequence of intermediate species than to create it from scratch!! Creating each intermediate species makes evolution even more absurd because each intermediate species would have to have its own unique, sophisticated DNA!!!
For example, could you take a simple computer program (the binary code) that adds two numbers together and randomly modify the "bits" of the binary code so that the program also does multiplication and division? Never!!
And could you then randomly modify the new program again so that it did square roots? Never!!
Likewise, you cannot randomly add nucleotides to the DNA of a chimpanzee and end up with human DNA. The structure of the DNA of a chimpanzee is massively different than the DNA of a human (especially the morphing of the embryo algorithms which are incomprehensible computer programs). So how could humans be descended from chimpanzees or any other species??
The leading evolutionists must be very clever and deceptive to get converts. And they are!!
When There Are 16 Cells and the Unbelievable Sophistication of DNA!!
How can DNA, which is inside of each cell, control the morphing of the embryo? For example, after a fertilized egg divides 4 times there are 16 cells in a new human being.
Each of these 16 cells must have the information needed to create 1/16th of the cells in the new baby!! In other words, there is something very, very different about each of these 16 cells otherwise they would all create the same part of the body!!!! For example, humans would have 32 legs if these 16 cells were identical!!
But these 16 cells lead to 16 different sets of cells in the baby and yet the cells were all created from the same fertilized egg!! More than an hour before these 16 cells existed there was only one fertilized egg!! What in the world happens during the first few hours after conception??
So what is the difference between these 16 cells so that each cell knows which 1/16th of the body to create? No one has the slightest clue because each of these 16 cells has exactly the same DNA, yet each will create 16 mutually exclusive sets of cells!!
It gets much worse for evolutionists. Each 1/16th of the baby (from these first 16 cells) must integrate with contiguous 1/16th sections of the fetus as the fetus morphs. This must be done at the cellular level!!
To understand this concept, suppose 16 different divisions in General Motors, located in different states, created 1/16th of a new Buick. Could totally random processes, or even 16 monkeys, bolt and weld together these 16 different sets of parts to create a new Buick?? Of course not. Only humans could bolt and weld them together.
Let us expand on this:
1) When there is one cell, it must contain the information to create an entire human being,
It should be obvious that a series of mindless accidents (i.e. evolution) could not have created the incomprehensible complexity of human DNA!!
Here are more questions: Which genes are activated in each cell when the fetus has 16 cells? Which genes are activated in each cell when there are 1,024 cells in the fetus? Which genes are activated in each cell when there are 1,048,576 cells in the fetus? And so on. No one has a clue because every cell has exactly the same DNA!!
What is Life?
Plus, there is the issue of: "what is life?" For example, if you took a fish and left it out of the water until it died, and then put it back into the water, why doesn't it come back to life? All of the raw elements for life are still in the fish, so why doesn't it come back to life? There is something more to "life" than just cells and oxygen and water.
Furthermore, have the evolutionists and atheists ever proven that life can be created from non-life?? Never, never, never - yet they continue to preach atheism.
For example, have scientists put a large shell over a pond, which had no life, meaning there was no DNA and no cells (this simulates "prebiotic," meaning "existing before life"), and observed "life" form by a series of accidents, including DNA inside of a "first living cell" (in that pond), that was alive and had the ability to divide itself into two cells (which would be required for life to continue)?
Then what is their evidence for evolution? Their only evidence is that they do not believe in God and thus they have no choice except to use their God-given brains to deceive people into believing that everything in the Universe, including human DNA, occurred by chance.
But the theory of evolution should have been thrown in the trash can when DNA was discovered and when the complexity of cells was also discovered. Yet, as scientists learn more and more about DNA and cells, the atheists continue to cling to the theory of evolution as if it were still 1859, when Darwin's first book was published.
The only thing that is "evolving" on this planet is the theory of evolution as evolutionists/atheists constantly need to develop new spin to account for the new discoveries about the sophistication of cells, DNA and the morphing of the embryo.
The theory of evolution is literally an "antique" of science. It should have been abandoned in the 1950s when DNA was discovered. But the atheists and their followers keep it alive.
What I have said above is not even the "tip of the iceberg" of the problems with the theory of evolution.
The Complexity of Cells and YouTube Videos
When the theory of evolution was proposed by Darwin, scientists knew virtually nothing about cells and certainly nothing about DNA (there is DNA inside of every cell except for some red blood cells which circulate in the blood).
But cells are now known to be very complex and they could not have formed by accident any more than a Buick could have formed by an explosion in a forest. As one person put it:
A YouTube video is an excellent source to get a small feel for how complex a human cell is. This YouTube video is called: "A Tour of the Cell." It is an OUTSTANDING introduction to what is going on inside of cells, particularly with regards to the organelles. It was created by Bozeman Science:
The next video is an animation of what is going on inside the cells. This video is mainly about how a cell deals with inflammation.
As you watch this video note the terminology and keep asking yourself this question: "How could something this complex have formed by accident in a warm pond?" The video is called the "Inner Life of a Cell" and it lasts about 8 minutes:
Did you understand all of those terms?
Many of the terms used in that video are a protein, are made of proteins or are associated with proteins. Proteins are made by the DNA inside the cell. The DNA provides the "patterns" needed to make the proteins via a chain reaction of chemical processes. The patterns are called "genes." They are the patterns to make the proteins inside the cell. The cell literally could not function without the genes on the DNA!!
The video above talked about how a cell reacts to inflammation. If the video had talked about cancer cells, even more things going on inside the cell would have been discussed, such as the Citric Acid Cycle (i.e. Krebs Cycle), the Electron Transport Chain, ATP energy (e.g. adenosine triphosphate), the making of pyruvate from glucose, etc.
To think that any cell (e.g. the "first living cell") could be created by a series of accidents in a "warm pond" is complete nonsense. Scientists who believe this nonsense are stuck in 19th century biology.
Here is another video on what is going on inside of cells and is called: "Voyage Inside The Cell," but it has more of a focus on DNA and the process of cell division - it lasts about 15 minutes and is worth watching:
So why have evolutionists and atheists continued to support the theory of evolution long after the discovery of DNA and even after the increasing discoveries about the complexity of cells? The reason is that many evolutionists are atheists and to them the theory of evolution is their religion and their best recruiting tool!!
To defend their views, evolutionists/atheists have their spin that the "first living cells" were simple cells. But as already mentioned, there is no evidence that "simple cells" have ever existed or that they exist today. All known cells have incredibly complex DNA and complex internal structures (except for some red blood cells).
In fact, cells could not exist without DNA to create critical proteins which are needed inside the cells and DNA needs cells for protection. Neither can exist without the other. So which came first, DNA (which needs the cell for protection) or the cell (which needs the genes on the DNA to provide the templates to make proteins for the cells)??
All real evidence points to a design and creation of all cells and DNA. In other words, all real evidence points to the claim that God designed both cells and DNA.
But as scientific discoveries have developed relative to our understanding of cells and DNA, very few atheists who support the theory of evolution have switched over to believing in God. Instead, some of the atheists have developed new tools of deception to continue to get converts to atheism. These tools of deception generally revolve around deceptive definitions.
These deceptive definitions are so sophisticated, so deceptive and so clever that it takes seven chapters (chapters 10-16) in my free Patterns of Intelligence book, linked to below, to unravel them!!
Three of the key terms, which involve deceptive definitions, are: "species," "microevolution" and "macroevolution," two of which have already been mentioned.
Whenever you see any "evidence" for the theory of evolution, it is based on very bad science and/or highly deceptive definitions.
The Morphing of the Embryo Algorithms on DNA and YouTube Videos
The "morphing of the embryo" algorithms on DNA may occupy 97% of human DNA. They are essentially computer programs that control how a single fertilized egg becomes a new human baby with about 30 billion complex cells each of which must end up in just the right place at just the right time and have the correct genes activated!!
As you watch this video remember that a human being starts out as a single cell with a single DNA strand (the fertilized egg).
This incredible 9 1/2 minute video graphically shows the "morphing of the embryo" of a human baby, which is controlled by DNA:
The video mentions that at 4 weeks, 1 million cells a second are being made and at birth a newborn baby has 60,000 miles of blood vessels. This process must be incomprehensible in complexity because if these blood vessels were not fully enclosed, as already mentioned, before blood started to circulate in the fetus, the fetus would bleed to death!!
How could evolution ever accidentally create that level of sophistication?? If a new species was not able to enclose the blood vessels before the blood started to circulate, every baby of that species would die and the species would immediately die off.
The one DNA strand inside the fertilized egg leads to the creation of billions of cells which include: a complete circulatory system, a human brain, the liver, the heart, the stomach, the muscles, the fingers, etc. etc.
As if that weren't incredible enough, the instructions for the morphing of the embryo come from inside the cells, where the DNA is!! Cells divide from the inside-out. And remember each cell has exactly the same DNA, yet each of the 30 billion cells ends up in a unique location in the baby with a specific set of genes activated.
This website contains two free eBooks and several articles which have no hesitation in stating that new discoveries about DNA, cell biology, anatomy, astronomy and other scientific disciplines overwhelmingly prove the theory of evolution cannot be true!!!
The War In Heaven Comes to Earth
The Bible, in Genesis 1, teaches that Adam, the first man on this Earth, was created by God after God had already created the earth, after God had created plants (to create oxygen) and after God created animal life (see Genesis 1:24-27).
Using modern terminology, we would say that God designed human DNA for both Adam and Eve and He also designed the DNA for all other species.
But all human beings existed as spirits before our spirits were put into a physical body. Our spirit included intelligence and was put into our "physical body" sometime between conception and birth.
In fact, long before we were born on this earth, our spirit bodies lived somewhere else in the "spirit world" or "pre-existent world" or "pre-existence." In the pre-existence we were sentient and even had to make very important decisions. But we did not have a physical body yet. We had to earn that right.
In the pre-existent world, the "spirit world," before we were placed on this earth, Michael (i.e. later called Adam) was the Savior's top General in the "war of words" that determined who would be born on this earth with a physical body. See this quote from the Bible:
The phrase "cast out" means that Lucifer and his followers were sent to earth, never to receive a physical body.
But note that Michael (i.e. Adam) and Lucifer (i.e. satan) knew each other in the pre-existent world.
Because Adam (i.e. Michael) cast Lucifer out of heaven, it makes perfect sense that Lucifer would hate Adam and would invent a collection of doctrines to claim that Adam never existed!! These doctrines (i.e. that humans descended from a single cell in a warm pond instead of from Adam and Eve) are at the core of the theory of evolution today!!
Just like satan taught Korihor that there was no God, he also implied that Adam never existed (e.g. Alma 30:25).
Likewise, the theory of evolution today claims there is no God and it also claims that Adam and Eve never existed.
But in addition to the Bible: the Book of Mormon (e.g. 1 Nephi 5:11, 2 Nephi 2: 19-25, etc.), the Doctrine and Covenants (e.g. Section 27:5-14, etc.), and the Pearl of Great Price (e.g. Moses 1:32-35, Moses 3:7-25, etc.) all testify that Adam was the first man and was created by God.
Adam was also a great prophet, second only to Christ in Priesthood authority (e.g. Teachings of Joseph Smith [Chapter 8], see also Mormon Doctrine by Bruce R. McConkie, Bookcraft, 1966, p. 16 and see: "The Man Adam" by Robert L. Millet, Ensign, January, 1994).
While Michael is still the General of Christ's forces, Lucifer has become the father of all lies. It was Lucifer who taught Korihor that Christ would never be born and he taught him the theory of evolution.
The theory of evolution today cannot claim that Christ never existed because He is a well-known historical figure, but evolutionists today claim that Christ was not the Son of God because they claim there is no God.
In summary, the Bible and LDS doctrine make it very clear that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost, Adam and Eve, and Noah and Noah's wife are real beings!!
Yet, the theory of evolution today denies that all seven of these people ever existed (technically atheists today must admit that Christ existed, but they claim He was not divine as just mentioned)!!
As with Korihor's day, the theory of evolution today is a mirror image of the truth. The "war in heaven" is raging today!!
Of course, the doctrines of the theory of evolution are only the tip of the iceberg of the false doctrines that members of the church need to be prepared for. That is precisely why God has given His church a living prophet who has the same keys which were held by Peter, James and John. Today that prophet is Thomas S. Monson, who presides over the Mormon/LDS church.
Note: Noah is also called Gabriel and he is next in line to Adam in priesthood authority per the book: Teachings of Joseph Smith, Chapter 8
Where Did God Come From?
So if many Christian churches, including the Mormon/LDS church, claim that God created all species, it is perfectly fair to ask: Where did God come from?
The prophet Brigham Young, the second President of the LDS church and a contemporary of Darwin (they were born about 8 years apart), must have been asked about the origin of man with this type of question: "if Darwin was wrong, and if God created humans, then where did God come from?"
This was his answer:
President Young was making it very clear that we mortals cannot even begin to comprehend eternity and the origin of God. Could an amoeba comprehend the religious doctrines in the Bible or design the blueprints for a new skyscraper?? Try to teach an amoeba high school algebra to the point it can pass a test!!
Just like an amoeba could not comprehend the religious doctrines in the Bible, or design a new skyscraper, we humans do not yet have the intelligence to comprehend the origin of God or even to comprehend how God thinks!! We will never have this intelligence while we are in mortality.
Brigham Young said this about God:
Perhaps the day will come (long after we are resurrected) when we can comprehend the origin of God. The scriptures tell us very clearly that we are literally the children of God and that we are joint heirs with Christ (see: Romans 8:16-18).
Elder Russell M. Nelson said: "Who are we? We are children of God. Our potential is unlimited. Our inheritance is sacred."
But just because we cannot comprehend eternity now, because we are literally the Children of God, we have far greater potential that we can currently comprehend.
The day will come when all will be resurrected, both the just and the unjust. We cannot conceive, at this time, the things we will be able to comprehend a million years after we are resurrected.
God is a loving God, not a tyrant. He wants us to succeed!! It is important to understand that God has a bright future in store for those who will keep his commandments or if needed, will change their ways. President George Q. Cannon said this about those who may need to change their ways:
And that is the difference between the theory of evolution and the true doctrine of God. Satan would have us believe that God does not exist (or that if He does exist He is a tyrant who wants us to fail) and that at death we cease to exist.
But God would have us understand that we are His children and that He loves us. He is quick to forgive and we can become more like Him as we progress throughout the eternities!!!
President John Taylor, the third President of the LDS church, said:
It is impossible to find any two doctrines that are as opposite as the doctrines of evolution and the doctrines of the living prophets. The two sets of beliefs are antithetical (i.e. directly opposed or mutually incompatible).
The doctrines of God are pure light and inspiring. They motivate us to move forward in our progression to become more like Him. The doctrines of evolution are dark and depressing because they cast humans as nothing but animals which have no purpose and cease to exist at death.
False doctrines, such as the theory of evolution, are one reason why God provides the members of the LDS church with a living prophet and true scriptures!!
At the top of this page I asked the question: "Mormonism and Evolution - Who Wins??" The evidence is overwhelming that God wins. We are not the children of a series of accidents, we are the children of God. He expects that we will live up to our glorious heritage. As President Cannon said: God will never desert us.
About This "Prophets or Evolution" Website
On this website are two free eBooks which totally annihilate the theory of evolution and more importantly, expose some of the frauds of some of the evolutionists. The most important of their frauds are the use of highly deceptive definitions. Using deceptive definitions (which is how bogus "evidence" for evolution is created) is the only way that evolutionists can get converts!!
As mentioned above, these deceptive definitions are so sophisticated that they could not have come to exist by accident. They were carefully crafted. It takes seven chapters in one of my free eBooks to unravel them.
My email address is at the bottom of this page if you have any comments or questions or need help debating someone who believes the evolutionists. Don't forget to tell your friends about this website!!

Non-Technical Article (18 pages): Prophetic Book of Mormon Warnings
This short article goes into more detail about prophets and evolution than what I just mentioned. However, if you plan on reading the Patterns of Intelligence book mentioned below, which is over 260 pages long, it is not necessary to read this article.
Spreadsheet: Alma 30: Doctrines of Korihor and Evolution
As a support to the above article, this spreadsheet shows the vast differences between what Korihor taught (i.e. what evolution teaches) and LDS doctrine. This spreadsheet goes verse by verse in Alma chapter 30 and explains the similarities between the teachings of Korihor and the doctrines of the theory of evolution. It also shows how each is the opposite of LDS doctrine:
Semi-Technical Article (14 pages): Why The Confusion About Evolution?
The intentional deceptions of evolutionists, by the use of clever terminology, are why there is such a wide diversity of opinions about evolution among LDS scientists. Very few members of the church understand the sophistication of the deceptions of the scientific establishment.
While these discussions are also in the Patterns of Intelligence book, to be discussed in a moment, if you want a quick lesson in understanding the deceptive definitions used by the scientific establishment, this article is for you.
Chapter Summary Medium-size eBook (37 pages, pdf file): Patterns of Intelligence - Chapter Summary
If you want a quick, high level overview of the Patterns of Intelligence book, this article has a short summary of each chapter in the 266 page medium-size this book:
Technical Medium-size eBook (266 pages, pdf file): Patterns of Intelligence
While the large book on this website is the "B-2 Bomber" of anti-evolution books, this book is the "F-22 Raptor" of anti-evolution books. This free book is actually much more current on the issues of the great scientific deceptions which are going on and the mathematical reasons evolution cannot be true. However, it does not go into the depth of the long book on the mathematical reasons evolution cannot be true.
Did you know that if you listed all major LDS doctrines and then took the opposite of each of these doctrines you would end up with the theory of evolution doctrines!! This book will produce such a detailed list in Chapter 2.
In this book you will see one of the main arguments of the large book, called "Patterns of Intelligence." This eBook has some really cool graphs.
But there are many things in the medium size book which are not in the large book. For example, chapters 22 and 23 of this book contain an amazing discussion which demonstrates that there is no where near enough information on DNA to control the "morphing of the embryo" algorithms!! Either God Himself designed DNA (and we cannot even remotely understand it) or the morphing of the embryo has help from the other side of the veil. There is no other option!!
Here is a link to the medium-sized book in one file. As always, you are welcome to read it online, download it, or print it out:

Technical Long eBook (407 pages, pdf file): Prophets or Evolution - An LDS Perspective
This book is the "B-2 Bomber" of anti-evolution books. It demolishes the theory of evolution time after time and takes no enemies. The discovery of DNA has created an avalanche of ways to prove the theory of evolution is scientific nonsense.
This free eBook is available in both HTML and PDF formats and both versions can be looked at online or can be downloaded. For example, you can download the PDF version and print it out so you can mark it up. As always, you don't even need to tell me you downloaded it!!

A Chapter of the Long Book: "Seven Scientific Reasons ... Evolution Cannot be True"
The complete "Prophets or Evolution" book is over 400 pages. This is a link to one of the key chapters in the main eBook. This chapter is a high level overview of seven of the main scientific reasons the theory of evolution cannot be true. It also mentions seven other reasons evolution cannot be true. Here is a link to this chapter:
Statement: The 1909 Official Statement of the First Presidency of the LDS Church
The 1909 statement of the First Presidency on the theory of evolution remains the official document of the church on the theory of evolution. This statement in 1909 was reprinted in the 2002 Ensign. It remains not only the official doctrine of the church, but the best description of the origin of man outside of the scriptures!! It is highly, highly recommended to the reader to study this document very carefully!!! It is unlike anything else you can read on the subject of evolution!!
Here is a link to this magnificent article:
Here is a 14 page article with my comments about the 1909 and 1910 statements of the First Presidency. My comments focus of the relationship between the statements of the First Presidency and what scientists knew between 1909 and 1953:
The Nature of God!! (Talk by Elder Jeffrey L. Holland)
What kind of being is God?? To those who fear they may have sinned beyond the range of the atonement, there is a magnificent message in this general conference talk about the true nature of God!!
Booklet: True To the Faith (First Presidency)
In addition to the 1909 article, an official booklet issued by the First Presidency in 2004: True to the Faith - A Gospel Reference, while not specifically about evolution, describes church doctrines which are the very antithesis of the doctrines of the theory of evolution (e.g. See topics: Atonement of Jesus Christ; Creation; Fall; God the Father; etc.). This booklet is available on www.lds.org:
The Prophetic Future of the LDS Church (Talk by President Spencer W. Kimball)
Do you want to know the future of the LDS church? A general conference talk by President Spencer W. Kimball provides a clear vision of what the future of the LDS church will be.
The False Gods We Worship (Article by President Spencer W. Kimball)
This classic article by President Spencer W. Kimball explains about the false gods some members of the church (and to some degree all of us) worship. Its lesson applies directly to the youth of the church!!
Beware of the Evil Behind the Smiling Eyes (Talk by Elder Neil L. Anderson)
Many attempts to lead the youth of the church astray are made by those who appear to be harmless or even friendly. This talk by Elder Neil L. Anderson, of the Quorum of the Twelve, is a warning to the youth of the church about those with "smiling eyes" who are not who they claim to be.
Quotes: The Power of God and the Future of the Church
These two articles contains quotes from the scriptures and from the living prophets and apostles about the power of God, the future of the LDS church and the final triumph of good over evil.
The Role and Importance of the LDS Church President
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is led by a "living prophet." This article is designed to clarify the role and importance of the President of the LDS church. It is mostly quotes of several prominent church leaders about the role and importance of the LDS church President.
Quotes About Church Membership
These are quotes about membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The quotes come from the prophets and apostles.
Website: Quotes of LDS Prophets and Apostles
This website has quotes from all of the Presidents of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and many of the Apostles of the church. There are many very powerful quotes on this website.
Video: Creation and Evolution - A Witness of Prophets
This is an outstanding video dealing with the theory of evolution, and especially the quotes of living prophets regarding the theory of evolution.
The official position of the LDS church on the theory of evolution is made very clear in this video!! Many quotes of presidents of the church and modern apostles are presented.
This video is highly recommended for anyone who wonders how the church leaders feel about Darwin and his theory of evolution.

Other Anti-Evolution Books
If you listen to the propaganda of the pro-evolution monopoly you might think that anyone who believes in creation science is a dolt. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are many "creation scientists" (i.e. those who believe God created this Universe) who are brilliant and have no problems seeing through the false science generated by the scientific establishment.
In fact, many anti-evolution books have been written by brilliant scientists. This listing of anti-evolution books and DVDs contains only a small sampling of the anti-evolution books which exist in print. In fact, there are more than 200 anti-evolution books.
Many of the books were written by PhDs in the sciences. The arguments in these books totally shred the theory of evolution from a scientific standpoint.
Some of these books may be out of print and you may have to use a book finder, such as Alibris, to find them.

To Learn More About the LDS Church
Here is a website that has many quotes by many of the apostles and prophets of the LDS church, on a variety of topics:
Even though the LDS Church officially rejects the theory of evolution (see the 1909 Statement, linked to above, and the Book of Mormon, Alma chapter 30, among many other documents), no book or article which is involved in scientific debates or which discusses the scientific issues of the theory of evolution, even if it strongly supports official church doctrine, is endorsed by the LDS church unless it is part of an official church publication.
The gospel deals with eternal and unchanging truths but all of the fields of science constantly change as new discoveries are made. Thus, the church does not establish any scientific claim as being absolute.
As a result, the books and articles written by R. Webster Kehr represent the opinions of the author and are too scientific to be published or endorsed by the LDS church.
About The Author, R. Webster Kehr
I am an LDS "creation scientist" (i.e. anti-evolutionist) with a B.S. in mathematics (1972) and accounting (1974) from BYU.
I make my living as a cancer researcher (of natural medicine) and work with thousands of cancer patients every year. I wrote almost all of the articles on the www.cancertutor.com website. It turns out that natural cancer treatments are far, far more effective than orthodox cancer treatments. The www.cancertutor.com website is a great resource for all cancer patients.
My wife Marit is from Norway. We met in Provo, Utah a month before I left on my mission to California. She is a genealogist and we have seven children and 19 grandchildren - scattered from Idaho to Georgia.
We live in the Topeka, Kansas Stake and I work one evening a week in the Kansas City Temple of the LDS church.
Whether you have a question or a comment, please feel free to email me. I love to communicate with students about the theory of evolution.
