When Science Backs Creation

I want to share with you a story I shared a while ago that blesses me. It’s actually a story Dr. Billye Brim had told years ago while ministering at Living Word. Let it get you excited about what I’ll be talking about this upcoming weekend during my Eternity teaching series: evolution.

Back in the seventies, there was a university professor who taught at a well-known California university and was an atheist, evolutionist, and well-respected scientist in his field. One day, a Christian student challenged him to use the computer capacity at the university to do a projection of world population based on evolutionary theory and compare it to a projection of world population based on creationism.

The professor undertook the challenge. He went ahead and plugged in all of the data available through our historical records of catastrophic events that would have affected world population. He first came up with a projection of world population on the basis of evolutionary theory; the figure he came up with was astronomically large. The earth wasn’t large enough to accommodate that amount of people.

He then plugged in numbers based on the creation hypothesis, which really began with Noah and his family after the flood. He again plugged in all of the information based on events that would have affected population growth and that projection produced a result of a little over four billion people. At that time, the number was very accurate and close to actual figures.

This experiment so impacted the professor he became a Christian and made Jesus His Lord. He then went around and used his scientific knowledge to teach others that science does, in fact, validate the truth of God’s Word.

If you want to hear more about creation vs. evolution, join us at Living Word this Saturday night at 5 p.m.  or Sunday morning at 9 and 11 a.m. If you live out of state, catch us online at lwcc.org/live.
