Is There Really a Creator God?


IS THERE REALLY A CREATOR GOD?

Is there really a God who created the universe?  If not (i.e. no God of creation), what is the alternative?  Could it be the universe created itself or has it always existed, with both options within this sentence being even more unbelievable or inconceivable than an atheist’ view of “there is no God”?   However, this is the mindset of many scientists and atheists.

Yes, it is difficult for many to believe that a dimensional Power known as God actually exists, has always existed, and will continue to exist.  And that this God created the universe and all matter including a planet with water, breathable oxygen, a sun that supplies just the right amount of heat, along with plants, animals, and humans.

Others find it just as difficult, if not more so, to believe that matter, along with the universe, has always existed with no creator or justifiable purpose; that life, of any kind, just happened to mutate from amino acids, happenstance DNA, and other mind boggling incidents and circumstances.  As one commentator said, “Can everything be created by nothing?”

The Big Bang
The generally accepted theory of the creation or beginning of the cosmos is called “The Big Bang Theory”.  The definition of the “big bang” is given below along with a definition of a required singularity for this theory.  The small gravitational singularity that is mentioned also requires this condensed matter to have always existed or it just miraculously appeared and scientists do not believe in miracles.

What Is the Big Bang Theory?
By Elizabeth Howell, Space.com Contributor | November 7, 2017
The Big Bang Theory is the leading explanation about how the universe began. At its simplest, it says the universe as we know it started with a small singularity (see below), then inflated over the next 13.8 billion years to the cosmos that we know today.

Because current instruments don't allow astronomers to peer back at the universe's birth, much of what we understand about the Big Bang Theory comes from mathematical formulas and models.

Definition of Singularity (in physics):  a point or region in space time in which gravitational forces cause matter to have an infinite density.

Evolution
The “theory” of evolution or the study of evolution is a voluminous and complicated subject.  Many books have been written about the issue.  If someone actually seriously and deeply thought about the subject it will be found to be a mind-bending and inconceivable process that could not possibly have occurred.

The creation of a single cell to several cells, to moving parts, to a frog, to a mammal, to a human being would require exponentially billions upon billions of mutations to achieve the final goal.  Today, it is said that no known mutations are helpful but only debilitating or deadly.  The time required would also require exponentially billions upon billions of years to complete the process which is why a time span for life on Earth of 6,000 years is mocked and ridiculed even by most professing Christians (i.e. after all, look at the dinosaur bones).

According to the Eye Institute the eye is one of the most complex organisms in the human body, second only to the brain.  Despite being only just over two centimeters in diameter, human eyes have over 2 million moving parts. They can distinguish over 500 shades of grey, and over 2.7 million colors.  Can you imagine the number of mutations required to produce an eye, even a frog’s eye? – and the eye is merely one component of a living animal.

Survival of the Fittest
This theory was inspired by the principle of natural selection, postulating that those who are eliminated in the struggle for existence are the unfit.  This phrase was invented by Herbert Spencer in Principles of Biology (1864) to describe Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection of living species.

As an Example:  There are several million amoebas swimming in a swampy body of water within prehistoric Africa.  One of them processes a mutation resembling an appendage protruding from its cellular body which is presumed to eventually become a working leg.  Does this appendage create a more powerful and survivable amoeba?  Not at all (in my opinion).  Will this mutated growth allow this certain transformed amoeba to dominate and eventually fill the swamp with amoebas with an appendage?  It appears unlikely.

The initial vestige of an eye, an ear, a nerve, or a lung that does not function or work does not benefit the mutant.  The list can continue.

How about the concept that extraterrestrials seeded planet Earth with life?  Does that solve the discussed problem?  No, it merely moves the creation of life from Earth to another part of the universe.

Conclusion
For people who refuse to accept the existence of God as creator, it would appear that the theory of evolution and its various ramifications is the best answer that can be put forth for argument.  There is no transitional species for evidence, only fossils of perfectly formed animals, fish, birds, and plants.  There are scant remains of various types of humans.  It appears that paleontologists can take a few fossil bones and create a picture of some Cro-Magnon (or other sub-human type) individual complete with facial features, hair and skin color, and other features that must be imagined because they are not present in the fossil.  These images are then passed off as authentic and most everyone believes in their truth.

If someone is truly interested in the evaluation of evolutionary tactics, several sources can be found.  However, it is my opinion the actual truth will only be revealed within sources written and compiled by Christian authors that do not accept the evolution standard.  Evolution is a belief system that cannot be disproved to the evolutionist. No amount of facts or explanations will ever convince them otherwise (or at least that is my opinion).
