For Those Who Keep Saying I don't Know What I am Talking About... –Ray Comfort

"Transitional fossils (popularly termed missing links) are the fossilized remains of intermediary forms of life that illustrate an evolutionary transition."

"An organism with features that it holds in common with organisms presumed to be its ancestor and descendant but that neither of these hold in common."

"Evolution predicts that there should be a great many fossils of transitional forms, intermediate between ancestors and descendents."

"A transitional form is a living or fossilized organism that is believed to be an evolutionary link between two distinct groups (also referred to as intermediates or missing links)."

"A transitional form is a fossil or living organism that is intermediate between two other organism in an evolutionary sequence. A transitional form that has not yet been found is colloquially called a 'missing link'."

To say "We are all transitional forms" is to move the goalposts, because you can't win the game. You redefine "transitional forms" because you have no evidence upon which you so blindly place your faith. Judgment Day will reveal the tragedy of this misplaced trust. Please, set aside your presuppositions, and listen to the claims of the gospel. Your eternity is at stake.

Big Words from Little Woody

"If I get hit by a bus when I go to buy some more cigarettes and I stand face to face with God I'll tell him exactly what I think of him. As Woody Allen said, 'God has some explaining to do.'"

Most of us won't die under the wheels of a bus. We tend to see them coming. What we don't see coming is an aneurysm in our sleep, or being rear-ended by a truck, or liver cancer or a massive heart-attack. Death has a way of sneaking up on us, but one thing is sure, it will come.

When the atheist stands before God, it will be a waste of time telling Him what he thinks of Him. God already knows what we think. He sees the thought-life and hears every word spoken. He knows the enmity that human beings have towards Him, and He has even gone to the trouble of telling us exactly why we feel enmity towards Him.

"Enmity" is a state of hostility. Here's the explanation from
Romans 8:7, from the Amplified Bible. This version of the Scriptures (as the name suggests, amplifies the English, by going back to each Greek word and opening up its meaning):

"[That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God's Law; indeed it cannot."

Our godless thought-process is called the "mind of the flesh." The "flesh" is the biblical way of expressing the fact that we get pleasure out of sin. The flesh loves gluttony, pornography, violence, adultery, sexual fantasies, etc. We delight in that which is wrong. If you disagree, then explain why it is that almost every movie, television program, magazine, and newspaper is filled with stories of sex and violence? Of course we love these things, and it's the love of them that makes us despise the very thought of God and His moral Law. We are like criminals who despise the police, because they uphold civil law.

Woody Allen may be big with words, but he is little on delivery. He is a sad man who is fearful of dying. And that fear of death will plague him until he takes the time to listen to the explanation that God has already given us in His Word.

Allen once lamented, "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work . . . I want to achieve it through not dying." The offer of not dying is there, and we ignore it at our own peril. Listen to the warning of Scripture: "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation..." (
Hebrews 2:3).

By the way; Woody Allen is my height.

Wildest Dreams or Worst Nightmares?

54 He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy, 55 As He spoke to our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed forever. And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her house.

If you want proof of the faithfulness of God, study His dealings with Israel. He took one small nation, and simply because of His mercy made them His chosen people. This is what He said to them:

"For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt." (
Deuteronomy 7:6-8)

He warned them that if they obeyed Him He would bless them beyond their wildest dreams, and if they turned against them He would chasten them beyond their worst nightmares. As we follow their history, we can watch in awe as God faithfully fulfills His promises. When they obeyed Him, He blessed them with long life, health, and with incredible prosperity (see Israel under Solomon). When they disobeyed Him by forsaking His Law, they predictably denied Him, gave themselves to sin and came under His severe wrath. He sent prophets to warn them and so often they refused to listen (see
2 Kings 17:7-17 and 2 Chronicles 36:15, 16).

God warned Israel that because of their rebellion they would scattered among the nations where they would be horribly treated, then He would bring them back to their own land. Other nations such as the Canaanites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Moabites, Edomites, or Ammonites lost their identities. But Israel persisted as a people because God established His covenant with her. Wherever the Jews went throughout the many centuries of history, despite not having a homeland, they kept their identity until God drew them back to their homeland in 1948. The purposes of God cannot and will not fail.

The reason God chose Israel was to fulfill His divine purpose that He "spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever." Here's the promise to Abraham: "In you shall all families of the earth be blessed" (
Genesis 12:3). The very first verse of the New Testament is the beginning of the fulfillment of this promise. God became a Man in the person of Jesus of Nazareth for the purpose of destroying our greatest enemy--death itself. And that one Man's death and resurrection gave us access to the wellspring of eternal life: "And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely."

what Jesus said....
Posted On: 10/25/09 07:50:18 PM Age 54, AK
If you believe what Jesus Says about salvation, why do you not about his words about creation? It is obvious that our Lord considered Genesis to be true..... Mark 10:6 From the BEGINNING, God made them Male and Female...

Is Evolution or Christ the criteria for Salvation?

The evolution theory vs 24/7 theory debate is fun to argue about. But to say that someone's soul depends on how they believe this is heresy. Jesus said He is the way...not believing in 24/7. The foundation of Salvation, the Bible, and Eternity is not in the 24/7 theory. It is is the God who created and created a way for us to be saved in Jesus Christ.

beautiful story of God's love and promises

I am so glad to read your articles, Ray, each time they appear. Thanks for caring enough to talk about something that is so shunned and mocked by people everywhere. One day they will all know the Truth and most will be quite surprised...hopefully they will repent before it is too late. Maybe even Woody Allen.

As plain as the nose on your face!

We can argue all day about minute details, but the simple fact is that ALL things break down, decay, and return to their original form (even those plastic bottles). Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Nothing has ever transitioned from a simple form to a more complex form without the interference of an intelligent being.

If Macro-Evolution is true...
Posted On: 10/21/09 03:30:02 PM Age 54, AR
Evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould was honest about the fossil evidence: “The known fossil record fails to document a single example of phyletic evolution accomplishing a major morphologic transition and hence offers no evidence that the gradualistic model can be valid” If macro-evolution is true, there must have been quadrillions of undirected mutations between a cow-like creature and a whale. I don't believe there is enough matter on earth to produce enough transitional forms, to say nothing of the lack of just one fossil of the needed quadrillions.
