Prophets Or Evolution?
An LDS Perspective
(Note: This website contains two free online eBooks and several articles.)
Prophets Or Evolution?
For thousands of years, including today, the prophets of God have testified that God lives, that He created all things, that we are His children, that He loves us, that He is quick to forgive and that He directs His prophets.
President George Q. Cannon (1860-1901), said this about our Heavenly Father:
But evolutionists claim that that there is no God and that human DNA, which is the most complex object on this planet, by a wide margin, was created by a series of errors. These errors are called "the theory of evolution."
Were any computer processors or computer programs created by a series of errors?? Of course not. Yet DNA is far more sophisticated than any computer processor or any computer program!!
DNA is so complex that scientists, even after studying human DNA since 1953, only understand about 3% of human DNA!! The other 97% is still a complete mystery and is called "dark DNA."
Not only is it mathematical nonsense to think that randomness could have created human DNA, it must be remembered that more than a million species of plants and animals also have their own unique and highly complex DNA!! Where did all of their DNA come from?
The theory of evolution, after the discovery of DNA, instantly became scientific nonsense. Anyone who understands the power of "base 4" permuations knows why the theory of evolution is nonsense.
In fact, no one has ever observed a single new gene, for a single species, form by accidental mutations!! There is zero tangible evidence for the theory of evolution.
Yet the scientific establishment acts as if randomly mutating DNA, and ending up with a new and improved species with a new DNA structure (i.e. a new and unique set of genes, etc.), is easy and it happens all the time. But they have never observed this happen and they never will because it is mathematically absurd!!
But the most important tool of deceit of the evolutionists is deceptive definitions. In one of my free eBooks on this website, Patterns of Intelligence, it takes seven chapters to unravel the key deceptive definitions of the evolutionists.
These deceptive definitions have allowed the evolutionist to take true events and twist them into clever lies and bogus evidence!! The entire foundation of the theory of evolution is based on deception.
While most school teachers are neither atheists nor evolutionists, the scientific establishment contains many atheists so it is no surprise that the scientific establishment has sided with the evolutionists and has totally ignored the mathematical problems caused by the discovery of DNA.
As a result of the deceptive tactics of evolutionists, the youth of the LDS church not only have to deal with those who push tobacco, alcohol, drugs, immorality, etc. they also have to deal with many clever establishment scientists who carefully deceive students to get converts to their religion of atheism.
My two books on this website, which are free, go into far greater detail on these issues.. They can be downloaded and read and/or printed out. It is not necessary to contact me if you want to download any document on this website. But you are welcome to contact me if you have questions or comments.

Evolution and the Book of Mormon!!
In my medium-sized 261 page book, which is free and on this website, called Patterns of Intelligence, it is shown that the theory of evolution is described in exacting detail in the Book of Mormon. However, the person who taught the theory of evolution was not a prophet, but rather an "anti-Christ."
In the Book of Mormon, Alma chapter 30, the doctrines of Korihor (the only enemy of the ancient church who was referred to as an "anti-Christ"), who taught in 74 B.C., are identical to today's theory of evolution!! Korihor had been taught his doctrines by a personal appearance of "the devil" (see: Alma 30:42 and Alma 30:53). This is why Korihor's doctrines were exactly the opposite of the teachings of the prophets.
It is also shown in my book, in Chapter 2, that the doctrines of the evolutionists today, meaning the doctrines of the theory of evolution today, are exactly the opposite of LDS doctrines today.
All of this is very interesting because Darwin's first book on evolution was not published until 29 years after the Book of Mormon was first published!! In other words, the first published book on this planet which described the theory of evolution in detail (Alma 30), including human evolution and natural selection, was the Book of Mormon!! But in the Book of Mormon the doctrines of the theory of evolution were taught by the "anti-Christ" Korihor.
Church members should understand that the Book of Mormon was not a reaction to the theory of evolution, rather it was predicting the theory of evolution was coming and it was warning the members of the modern church of the anti-Christ foundations of the theory of evolution.
Even though the Book of Mormon was warning members of the church, in 1830, about the coming forth of the theory of evolution, it wasn't until 1859 that the theory of evolution was known to the general public and it wasn't until 1953, with the discovery of DNA, that the theory of evolution could be mathematically disproven.
The story of Korihor in the Book of Mormon was a clear prophesy of the coming forth of the atheistic theory of evolution.

Non-Technical Article (18 pages): "Prophetic Book of Mormon Warnings of Anti-Christ Doctrines in the Latter-Days"
Note: If you read the Patterns of Intelligence book mentioned below, it is not necessary to read this article.
Of all of the enemies of the church mentioned in the Book of Mormon, and there were many, Korihor was the only enemy given the title of "anti-Christ." The word "anti" can mean "enemy" or it can mean someone who teaches doctrines which are the "opposite" of true doctrines. Korihor's teachings fit both definitions.
While there were other false prophets who taught against the doctrines of Christ, and who taught that Christ would never be born (Korihor preached before the birth of Christ), their doctrines were not the exact opposite of the doctrines of Christ; rather they were a mixture of truth and error. This may be one reason why Korihor was the only enemy of the church given the title of "anti-Christ."
The doctrines taught by Korihor, and the doctrines taught today by the theory of evolution are identical and both are exactly the opposite of LDS doctrine and the opposite of a belief in Christ.
The purpose of this article is to demonstrate that the Book of Mormon was written for our day and it stands as a warning to church members about the false and anti-Christ doctrines of the theory of evolution:
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 (12 pages): Why The Confusion About Evolution?
Note: If you read the Patterns of Intelligence book mentioned below, it is not necessary to read this article.
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. This article provides a clear understanding of the deceptive definitions used by the evolution establishment to deceive people into thinking that there is evidence for the theory of evolution.
Summary Medium-size Book (36 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 261 page medium-size this book:
Technical Medium-size Book (261 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. You are welcome to read it online, download it, or print it out:
Technical Long Book (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!!
The long eBook is called "Prophets or Evolution - An LDS Perspective," which:

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:
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)

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.
Can We Be Forgiven? Yes!! (Talk by Elder Jeffrey L. Holland)
To those who fear they may have sinned beyond the range of the atonement, there is a magnificent message in this general conference talk!!
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.

Other LDS Websites on Evolution
This is a web page that links to other websites which discuss LDS doctrine versus the theory of evolution:
Here is an old version of the "Patterns of Intelligence" book:
To Learn More About the LDS Church
To learn more about the LDS church, here is their official website to introduce people to the LDS church:
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, and I am more than happy to point out the deceptions of the evolutionists.
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. My wife Marit (who is a genealogist) and I have seven children and 19 grandchildren.
I live in the Topeka, Kansas stake and work part-time in the Kansas City Temple of the LDS church. (Note: I spend so much time exposing the deceptive definitions of the evolution establishment I think my parents were inspired when they gave me my middle name: Webster [as in Noah Webster], which is what my friends and family call me.)
