The truth of creation (2)

“He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female.’” Mt 19:4 NKJV


A fascinating quote from a 1995 issue of U.S. News & World Report reads: “Researchers suggest that virtually all modern men—99 percent of them, says one scientist—are closely related genetically and share genes with one male ancestor dubbed ‘Y-chromosome Adam.’ We are finding that humans have very, very shallow genetic roots which go back very recently to one ancestor…That indicates that there was an origin in a specific location on the globe, and then it spread out from there.” Furthermore, we know that the male needs the female to reproduce, and vice versa. Neither can carry on life separate from the other. Jesus pointed this out, saying, “He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female.’” So which one of them came first, according to the evolutionary theory: male or female? As one author writes: “If a male came into being before a female, how did the male of each species reproduce without females? How is it possible that a male and female each spontaneously came into being, yet they have complex, complementary reproductive systems? If each sex was able to reproduce without the other, why (and how) would they have developed a reproductive system that requires both sexes in order for the species to survive?” Just because an academic says something, doesn’t make it so! Christians need to speak up and demand answers from those who offer unproven theories in the name of higher learning. Jesus said we would know the truth, and the truth would set us free (See Jn 8:32). Free from what? Free from error!
