But evolutionists teach that everything is constantly evolving into a higher and more complex order. In other words, they believe things continue to get better and better instead of worse and worse. This makes no sense according to the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolution and this law are at odds with each other.
For example, if water is being heated on a stove to just below boiling, and the burner is turned off, the temperature will drop instead of rise. Of course. It will move toward colder rather than hotter. If a basketball is placed on a highway running downhill, it will always roll downhill and not uphill. Energy used for a particular task changes from usable energy to unusable in the performing of that task. In a larger context, the universe is winding down—moving toward disorder or entropy——not winding up or moving toward more perfect order, more energy, and structure.
And what about a human being evolving from a primordial tadpole?
The only reason one sees any order in the universe is because God deems it so. Any order in nature is because he commanded it.
A study of God’s use of numbers in the Bible is amazing and illustrates this fact. For example, in the order of creation, on the third day, the land produced vegetation out of apparent lifeless seeds- plants bearing more seeds, and trees that bore fruit. Vegetative life with its fruit arose from the dry ground. I think it’s more than a coincidence that Jesus rose from dead on the third day! (see Numbers in the Bible by Johnston)
Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician who lived in about 1200 A.D., is given credit for discovering The Golden Ratio in Nature, which comes from a series of numbers. But as Christians, we know the Author of this ratio is not only but the great God, I AM. It adds incredible order to the universe we live in.
The sequence, in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers is known as the Fibonacci series: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, etc., (each number is the sum of the previous two).
The ratio of successive pairs is so-called golden ratio 5/3, 8/5, 13/8, 21/13, 34/21 gets closer to: 1.618033989 . . . . . whose reciprocal is 0.618033989 . . . . . so that we have 1/GS = 1 + GS. Enough math for now but…..
Remember the ratio: 1.618 and 1/1.618= .618 for the next blog. Truly amazing. Most have probably not seen this before.
