Twenty-Five Reasons The Theory of Evolution Cannot Be True

Before getting into the 25 reasons the theory of evolution cannot be true, which are discussed in this article, let us first look at an overview of foundational concepts.

Most people believe that there is a God and that God designed and created the Universe, including the earth and all things on the earth, such as the DNA for all species of plants and animals.

Some people, who usually call themselves atheists and/or evolutionists, claim that there is no God and that by definition all things in the Universe, including our earth, came to exist by countless accidents.

So while most people believe in God, some people believe in accidents (i.e. evolution). In fact, the term "evolution" and the term "accident" mean exactly the same thing. It is God or accidents.

"Evolution" is not a force in nature like gravity or sunlight. Evolution is the claim that there is no God and therefore everything in the Universe, including the Universe itself, came to exist purely by a series of accidents. The "theory of evolution" should really be called the "theory of accidents."

The issues in the theory of evolution debate always pit the existence of God versus the atheist claim that everything in the Universe came to exist by chance with the goal of the atheists to convince people that God does not exist.

Another key concept in the evolution debate is the concept of "natural selection." Natural selection is the claim that the "stronger species will survive." In other words, natural selection is the claim that a strong species can eliminate a weaker species. While this may be true, the elimination of a species, via natural selection, has nothing to do with the creation of a new species (i.e. via evolution of God)!!!

In fact, natural selection and the creation of new species work against each other. Natural selection is trying to eliminate weak species whereas the evolutionists claim that new species are created by accidents. Natural selection would easily win this battle because evolution can never create a new species with new DNA.

While true, "natural selection" has nothing to do with creating a new species so it is irrelevant to the evoultion debate!! Yet many atheists and evolutionists claim that natural selection is a key part of evolution.


Deceptive Definitions

Because the atheists and evolutionists have no eviidence that new DNA (for a new species) has been created by a series of accidents (i.e. by evolution), the atheists and evolutionists have devised some very clever deceptions. Many of these clever and deceptive definitions are needed because there is no real scientific evidence for evolution.

Let us define three terms:

"Species" - a unique species is defined by a unique DNA structure.

"Microevolution" is variety within the same species. An example would be a Collie and Great Dane - both are in the species "dogs."

"Macroevolution" means a new DNA structure has been created by a series of accidents, meaning that a new "species" has been created by a series of accidents.

This definition restricts a "species" to all plants or animals which have the same DNA structure.

You will never hear an atheist use that definition of "species!!!" Many of the deceptions of the atheists depend on claiming that one animal "evolved" into another animal. A new DNA structure has NEVER been observied to have been formed by accident (i.e. by evolution).

Thus, the definition of "species" used by the atheists and evolutionists is so broad that it allows a collie dog and a Great Dane dog to be in different species.

In one of my free eBooks on this website, there are seven chapters which discuss the tricks the atheists and evolutionists use to pretend there is "evidence" for the theory of evolution.


The Nature of God

So if God exists, what kind of being is God? This quote is from Joseph Smith's famous "King Follett Discourse":

  • "The first principles of man are self-existent with God. God himself, finding he was in the midst of spirits and glory, because he was more intelligent, saw proper to institute laws whereby the rest could have a privilege to advance like himself. The relationship we have with God places us in a situation to advance in knowledge. He has power to institute laws to instruct the weaker intelligences, that they may be exalted with Himself, so that they might have one glory upon another, and all that knowledge, power, glory, and intelligence, which is requisite in order to save them in the world of spirits."

The "atheists," of course will say: "if there is a God, then where did God come from?" Brigham Young, a contemporary of Darwin, answered that question:

  • "Many have tried to penetrate to the First Cause of all things; but it would be as easy for an ant to number the grains of sand on the earth. It is not for man, with his limited intelligence, to grasp eternity in his comprehension. There is an eternity of life, from which we were composed by the wisdom and skill of superior Beings. It would be as easy for a gnat to trace the history of man back to his origin as for man to fathom the First Cause of all things, lift the veil of eternity, and reveal the mysteries that have been sought after by philosophers from the beginning.

    What, then, should be the calling and duty of the children of men? Instead of inquiring after the origin of the Gods—instead of trying to explore the depths of eternities that have been, that are, and that will be—instead of endeavoring to discover the boundaries of boundless space, let them seek to know the object of their present existence, and how to apply, in the most profitable manner for their mutual good and salvation, the intelligence they possess. Let them seek to know and thoroughly understand things within their reach, and to make themselves well acquainted with the object of their being here, by diligently seeking unto a superior Power for information, and by the careful study of the best books."

President Young was perfectly correct, no human could even remotely comprehend the origin of God. We should use our talents to become more like God.


Twenty-Five Reasons Evolution Cannot Be True

As you read the reasons the theory of evolution cannot be true, you are essentially reading more than 25 reasons that God must exist. Many things could not have come to exist without God.

So here is the list:

1) Astronomy - The Big Bang theory, meaning the creation of the Universe by an accidental explosion, as claimed by many atheists, is nonsense - what exploded, how did something that dense explode, etc.? There have been various theories about "what" exploded and now some scientists say "nothing" exploded and yet this explosion created our Universe!! This is an example of the lust of atheists to get converts to atheism.

The atheists who have invented the theory of evolution cannot allow people to believe in God. In fact, the whole purpose of the theory of evolution is to get converts to atheism and to draw people away from God.

2) Astronomy - Astronomers believe there are between 100 billion and 200 billion GALAXIES in the Universe. Our sun is just one of the stars in our Galaxy and our sun is a million times larger than our earth.

The star Betelgeuse has a radius 950-1,200 times the size of our Sun. But the star VY Canis Majoris, a red hypergiant star in the Canis Major constellation, is thought to be 1,540 times the size of our Sun. If VY Canis Majoris replaced our Sun its size would extend beyond the orbit of Saturn and our planet would be inside the sun!!!

See this amazing YouTube video on the size of VY Canis Majoris:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smmNP8G69vc

The galaxy we live in, called the Milky Way Galaxy, has up to 400 billion stars. The Milky Way Galaxy is in the Laniakea Supercluster of galaxies. In other words, there are many galaxies.

As telescopes in space get bigger and bigger more and more stars and more and more galaxies will be discovered. Can you imagine what a telescope, with the light-gathering power of the width of our earth, would find!!??

3) Gravity - Gravity makes no logical sense!! As one example, why would our sun and our earth be attracted to each other?? Yet everyone knows that gravity exists!!

4) Physics - There are more than 300 "physical constants" in physics. Some require unbelievable accuracy, such as the Gravitational Constant. Our Universe could not exist without some of the key physical constants.

Consider this section from a major website on creation science:

  • "Consider gravity, for example. The force of gravity is determined by the gravitational constant. If this constant varied by just one in 1060 parts, none of us would exist. To understand how exceedingly narrow this life-permitting range is, imagine a dial divided into 1060 increments. To get a handle on how many tiny points on the dial this is, compare it to the number of cells in your body (1014) or the number of seconds that have ticked by since time began (1020). If the gravitational constant had been out of tune by just one of these infinitesimally small increments, the universe would either have expanded and thinned out so rapidly that no stars could form and life couldn't exist, or it would have collapsed back on itself with the same result: no stars, no planets, no life.

    Or consider the expansion rate of the universe. This is driven by the cosmological constant. A change in its value by a mere 1 part in 10120 parts would cause the universe to expand too rapidly or too slowly. In either case, the universe would, again, be life-prohibiting.

    Or, another example of fine-tuning: If the mass and energy of the early universe were not evenly distributed to an incomprehensible precision of 1 part in 10123, the universe would be hostile to life of any kind.

    The fact is our universe permits physical, interactive life only because these, and many other numbers, have been independently and exquisitely balanced on a razor's edge."

5) DNA - Construction - DNA cannot be created in nature - it is impossible. In fact, all of the scientists on this planet, in a thousand years, could not create a single new DNA strand from scratch!!

6) DNA - Cannot Be Modified - Once DNA Is created - it CANNOT be modified, it can only be damaged. In other words, the DNA for each species (i.e. the structure of nucleotides) cannot physically be modified to create a new and improved species!! Nor could scientists modify DNA. In short, evolution CANNOT create a new species by modifying the DNA of an existing species!!

7) DNA - Permutations - The number of ways to uniquely order the nucleotides on human DNA (i.e. the number of unique “permutations of nucleotides”) is a 4 raised to the power of 3.2 BILLION permutations. The number is unimaginable and dwarfs the number of atoms in a trillion trillion trillion Universes like ours.

And if we look at the DNA for all plants, animals and insects, the cumulative DNA would be more than one quadrillion nucleotides!! Thus, the real number of permutations is 4 raised to the power of 1 QUADRILLION permutations.

And yet there is virtually zero evidence of any failures of DNA to create a new species!! That is because God, not accidents, designed and created all DNA!!

If evolution were true, the vast, vast (the word "vast" should be repeated a hundred times) majority of these random permutations would FAIL to create a viable human being or any other animal or even any plant. In other words, any attempt to create a new species by random permutations would fill many Universes with mutated, dead animals and zero successes!!!

This issue is also exacerbated by the fact that the DNA of a male and the DNA of a female, of many species, must align with each other during mating (see more about this below).

8) DNA - Kehr's Paradox -If the sequence of nucleotides on DNA was randomly chosen (e.g. via evolution), the ordering of nucleotides (e.g. created by random mutations) would always be about 25% correct nucleotides and 75% incorrect nucleotides. Evolution cannot overcome this paradox.

9) DNA - Morphing of the Embryo Algorithms - These are computer programs on DNA to create an animal via cell divisions from a fertilized egg. These are literally the most sophisticated computer programs on this planet, by a wide margin, and they could not have been created by accident.

For example, 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 on the DNA to create an entire baby who has 30 billion cells and 60,000 miles of blood vessels, etc. The blood vessels of this new baby would wrap around the earth, at the equator, twice, with 10,000 miles of blood vessels left over!!

In addition, when the baby is born he or she will have an incredible brain which is connected to the nervous system, a skull to protect the brain, a spinal cord (the spinal cord is a cylindrical bundle of nerve fibers), a spine to protect the spinal cord, two eyes which are connected to the nervous system, a liver, a pancreas, etc. etc.!! And all of this came from the instructions on a single cell - the fertilized egg!!

I call the algorithms on the DNA of the fertilized egg, which creates the new baby via billions of cell divisions, the "morphing of the embryo" algorithms. These algorithms on DNA control the "morphing" of the embryo from a single fertilized egg into a crying baby.

These algorithms on the DNA of the fertilized egg are incomprehensible in sophistication because they also need to make sure that the 60,000 miles of blood vessels are fully enclosed before blood starts to circulate or else the baby would bleed to death before it was born!!

10) DNA - Organs, Etc. - the human brain, spine, circulatory system, etc. are created by the sequences of nucleotides on the DNA of the fertilized egg (if evolution were true) as just mentioned!! Only God could have created these algorithms!! No such sequence of nucleotides could exist by chance. Plus this new human has a spirit which gives it life. Scientists have never created life from non-life. In fact, they have no clue what "life" is.

11) DNA - Protection of Body Parts - items to protect the human also come from DNA, such as the skull to protect the brain, the spinal cord to protect the spine, etc. In other words, human anatomy comes from the sequences on DNA.

12) DNA - Bloodstream, etc. - also from the DNA must come the 60,000 miles of blood vessels in a new baby, etc. These blood vessels in the new baby would wrap around the earth - twice - with 10,000 miles of blood vessels left over.

13) DNA - Other Animals - many similar issues for other species with male/female such as camels, horses, etc. More on this in a moment.

14) DNA - Visual Form (i.e. what an animal looks like) - Atheists always use the VISUAL FORM of an animal to explain how new species of animals are created from old species. But it is NOT the visual form of an animal that creates a new species, it can only be new DNA!! Atheists must explain where NEW DNA comes from and they cannot do that!!!

15) Adam and Eve (First Humans) - Adam and Eve must have been created in same timeframe so they could mate. They also had to be created in the same latitude / longitude so they could find each other and mate. Their DNA must align. Alignment of male DNA and female DNA, in order to create DNA for their offspring, must be razor sharp and is impossible to happen by chance.

How could the DNA that creates a male (which is essentially a computer program which no human can comprehend) and the DNA that creates a female (which is essentially a computer program which no human can comprehend) align with each other if each had been created by chance!! Who could create two sophisticated computers programs and create a new computer program (which has features of both original programs) by aligning the two existing computer programs?

16) "Non-Human Adam and Eve," meaning the first pair of non-human animals of EVERY species which has both a male and female (e.g. camels); must also have been created in same timeframe so they could mate, in the same latitude / longitude so they can mate, etc. The alignment of male DNA and female DNA, in order to create DNA for their offspring, must be razor sharp for every human and non-human species.

17) Some species are so unique they could not have "evolved" from any other species!! These species would need very unique DNA which could not have "evolved" from the DNA of a prior species. See this website for examples:
http://www.inplainsite.org/html/animals_that_prove_creation.html

18) Morphing of Embryo - Cells in living beings, such as humans, must "bind" to each other as the baby is morphing from a single fertilized egg to a baby. The order in which these cells are created is beyond human comprehension. For more information see the "When There are 16 Cells" article on the www.ProphetsOrEvolution.com website.

19) The "First Living Cell" had to be created from sterile water, sand and rocks if evolution were true. But organic molecules are usually composed of carbon atoms in rings or long chains, to which are attached other atoms of such elements as hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen.

20) Cell Biology - Most cells must be able to divide to create two cells. Cell division processes (to create a new cell) are VERY complex!! For example, how are the organelles copied? There are hundreds of reasons the theory of evolution cannot be true just from cell biology issues.

21) Cell Biology - Finding a Gene On a Cell - when a cell needs an enzyme from a gene, how does it FIND the gene? For example, suppose a gene begins at nucleotide 985,125,993 and the gene has 2,769 nucleotides. How does the cell find WHERE the gene begins (i.e. nucleotide 985,125,993) and WHERE it ends? No one has the slightest clue how the cell can find where the needed gene is located on the massive DNA.

22) Cell Biology - Cells are so sophisticated that hundreds of scientists have PhD degrees in "Cell Biology." The sophistication of cells (e.g. to make a liver or brain) is far too sophisticated to have occurred by chance.

23) Earth - Our Earth must be compatible for life, such as having the right mixtures of oxygen, nitrogen, water, etc. How could the Earth and its environment form by accident? It is impossible.

24) Moon - We would not exist without our moon. The moon helps stabilize the tilt of our Earth, it helps create the key ocean tides so the ocean water does not become stagnant, etc.

25) Creation Scientists - Creation Scientists (e.g. Dennis Prager, Kent Hovind) have written HUNDREDS of anti-evolution books!! Of course, the atheists have also written hundreds of books praising atheism and/or evolution.
