In our time, many scientists have become so convinced in the theory of evolution that it is no longer taught as a theory but as fact. But nowhere is there a better example of the ridiculousness of the idea that all of life evolved from microscopic forms into the creatures we have today than that of the bees and their co-dependence upon the plants and vice versa. The idea that two or more completely different organizms, one plant, sometimes two plants, and one animal, co-evolved to become totally dependent upon one another for survival throws the odds of probability into inconceivable in comparison to the Biblical account that God created the heavens and the earth. When I consider the existance of lower-life social systems (as compared to human life), such as is found in the honeybees, where there is such complete cooperation between members, the idea that they innately had the ability to "evolve" through a series of mutations and accidents with no highly developed brain guiding the process also stretches my imagination beyond its limits. It takes a Master Designer to accomplish this, not a series of accidental coincidences.
Perhaps man's brain has become his downfall. Man tries to find ways to get around God. He doesn't want to be subject to Him, and in his conceit he designs ways to "prove" God doesn't exist. Perhaps that is why he continually loses the ability to get along with his own kind, and why he singlehandedly may one day totally destroy the balance of this magnificent creation God gave to him. God gave the gift of intelligence to man along with the instructions to "Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
Einstein discovered the Theory of Relativity which revolutionized scientific thought. Energy = Matter X Speed of Light squared or E=MC2. It seems to me that this theory rules out the theory of evolution as nothing can be created from nothing.
With God however, this is not impossible. It only helps to further expand our thinking on how great our Creator God is. We see God's power in the lightning, in hurricanes, in earthquakes, and in the intricacies of nature around us. But imagine watching Him speak the earth into existance. "And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light." (Genesis 1:3) "And God said..." These words are repeated over and over again in Genesis 1. "God is Spirit..." (John 4:24) I believe speaking is as close as the writer of Genesis could come to illustrate how the energy came out of God's being and became the very universe that we live in today.
God has an infinate supply of power within himself. This energy is
the source of all of creation. And the more intricate the creation, the greater the
evidence that it was not brought about by evolution, a series of accidents and bumps in
