Evolution is really evil-lotan …….
The theory of evolution is often argued among the university circles and even the office water cooler. This theory is more than likely attributed to Charles Darwin and given much credence due to his persistent descriptions of plant and animal life.
Additionally, Darwin was well traveled in his documentations whereas the relative majority of people in the 1800’s were considerably more regional in their travels. The speed and frequency of intercontinental travel was not conducive to such the common man.
While one must give “props” to Darwin for his encyclopedic descriptions of the plants and animals he encountered, Darwin was far from being the first to author or challenge the world of intelligent design. Throughout the ages there have been a host of those that denied the authority and ownership of this planet to God Almighty.
At the same time as Darwin penned his Book of Origins, There was Thomas Huxley, Gregor Mendel and August Weismann attempting to discredit the work of God in the arena of evolution. Prior to Darwin, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck writes of transmutation in 1809, then prior to them both was Pierre Louis Maupertuis in 1751.
Darwin originally attended University of Edinburgh Medical School where he neglected his studies for debate among the students and professors which garnered him a rebuke from his father in the form of a transfer to Christ’s College, Cambridge, to study for a Bachelor of Arts degree as the first step towards becoming an Anglican parson.
In Darwin’s second year at the university he joined the Plinian Society, a student natural-history group featuring lively debates in which radical democratic students with materialistic views challenged orthodox religious concepts of science.
As we can see from this brief bit of history Mr. Darwin was not only not original in his thinking, perceptions or theory, he was the product of an ideology designed and perpetuated by Satan from antiquity. In both his religious and his social background Darwin was devoid of the truth of creation and the sovereignty of Jesus Christ.
The book of Genesis explains in great depth, while the Gospel of John confirms, the creation of all living matter by the breath of God through Jesus Christ.
Darwin’s (and the others) deception begins right in Genesis 1:1 “The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep.” They portray this to mean literally there was nothing in the first half of the sentence and then something in the second half, dry land and oceans, making the “comma” separating them “The Big Bang”.
This prolific paganism is further demonstrated in the idea that man somehow crawls out of the sea as some fishy glob with ape to man capabilities. This mottling of facts is the cornerstone of their delusion.
Read carefully the words of Genesis:
1: 9 And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so.
1: 21 So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
This is the point in the story where the Darwinians would scream “see it says it right there!” having missed the fact it specifically says “with which the waters swarm”. This tells the reader that the “all” was the ones residing “in” the seas. NOT MAN.
One can only make the assumption that the Darwinians or naturalist got bored and put down the Bible at this point think they had gathered all they needed to support their delusion. The problem therein lies in the fact they didn’t get the rest of the story as Paul Harvey would have said.
In just a few verses later in Genesis 1 we see the following verse detail the creation of mankind. “So God created man ( הָֽאָדָם֙ ’ā·ḏām) in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
This statement alone refutes completely the essence of Darwin and all the absurdities the naturalist wants to imbibe upon the predominantly biblically illiterate world in which we live.
Who is Lotan? Lotan, was a sea monster in Canaanite mythology. Most scholars agree on describing him as “the fugitive serpent” but he may or may not be “the wriggling serpent” or “the mighty one with seven heads”. Any of these sound familiar? There again, probably not to the one disengaged to the scriptures.
Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
Revelation 13:1 “And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads.”
