Darwinism Disproved by Science and Darwin
Bacterial Flagellum & Irreducible Complexity  

For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The just shall live by faith.  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. Romans 1:17-19 (NKJV)

I have this theory about God coming back; it goes like this.  I believe He will allow mankind to discover many things throughout history, and towards the very end, man will scientifically prove Intelligent design (God), and archeologists will parallel these scientific discoveries by finding more and more physical evidence proving Biblical stories true.  The result?  Many angry and frustrated atheists will be disproved, and millions of other people, who have been hiding behind the evolutionists' false theories, will have to be accountable for their lifestyle and choices.   Yep, God is coming back soon.  

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools... Romans 1:20-22 (NKJV)

Great theory Pastor Scott, but where is your scientific proof?  Well, thanks for asking.  

Back when Darwin made his renowned theories of evolution, science had limits in their capabilities.  And as such, they could not look within the human cell.  The result is they felt it was nothing more than a blob of protoplasm.  The funny thing is that science has evolved and they now have this capability of looking into the cell.  One scientist said going into the cell is like going into an automobile factory - the factory has a large number of machines.  And all the parts have to fit together in very specific ways to do their jobs.  And if things go wrong, then the cell is in big trouble.  Now that's just one cell - the human body is made up of trillions of individual cells all doing their specific job. I think this is a beautiful picture of the church as well - many members, yet one body.

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, Romans 12:4 (NKJV)

Science has also proven and found that each cell is amazingly complex and is made up with many different types of molecular machinery.  That's right, intelligently designed micro machines.  One such machine within the cell is called a bacterial flagellum.  It is this little torpedo-shaped tube with a little tail at the end of it acting as the impeller.  It is made up of approximately 40-parts, including a rotary motor, a stator, a propeller, a driveshaft, u-joints and impeller; it has 2-gears, forward and reverse and is water-cooled. Some of these motors can turn up to 100,000 RPMs.  Howard Berg, Department of Molecular & Cellular Biology, Harvard University has labeled it, "The most efficient machine in the universe."

There is something else very interesting to note here; these bacterial flagellum motors could not operate or do what they were created to do if they were to be missing just one of their parts - they were designed to work together to achieve their purpose.  It's kind of like a mousetrap -  it has 5-functioning pieces.  Take one piece away and it no longer functions, nor could it do what it was designed to do - catch mice.  Its known as irreducible complexity.  Here's the cool part.

Charles Darwin offered a way to test his theory of evolution.  In his book, On The Origin of Species, which was published on Nov. 24th 1859, and which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology, he himself stated, "If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous successive slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down."

Darwin had rightly acknowledged that if someone identified a biological system that could not have been constructed in incremental steps over long periods of time then his theory would be invalid. Well, here it is Charlie!  The basic cell found within life is just that biological system that Darwin said didn't exist.   Science has discovered an amazingly complex organ that cannot be explained by Darwinian processes.  

Christians have been called naïve and ignorant to believe in the written Word of God.  They have been ridiculed for putting their faith in His promises contained within the historical writings of the Bible.  You talk about Christians having faith; atheists must have some amazing faith to believe we have somehow evolved from pond scum.  

Professing to be wise, they became fools... Rom. 1:22

Hey Christian, we can intellectually deny God, or we can simply live in a way that denies Him.  We need to live holy and sanctified lives set apart and different from the world.  I want to encourage you today to think about your choices and to evaluate them with Christ in mind.  

STUDY QUESTION: According to Romans 1:20-22, what happens to those who really do know of God but choose to deny Him?

PERSONAL INVENTORY: Are you living in a way that glorifies God, or denies His existence in your life?

APPLICATION: Seek to let the light of Christ shine through your life and your choices and your actions.  

Father, Thank You for Your amazing creations for us to share and to enjoy.  Thank You for allowing mankind to discover You by reason and science.  Help those who have been blinded by the lies of the enemy and those who hide behind these lies because it allows them to justify their actions.  Help me to love those who are ignorant and be the example You have called me to be.  Fill me with Your Spirit today.  In Jesus' precious name, amen...

Be Blessed, Pastor Scott
