The Corner Stone of Creation

An Amazing Fact: Did you know that simple math can help determine the approximate age of the earth? All you need to do is study humanity’s global population. There are about 8 billion people on the planet today. Because our population doubles globally approximately every 150 years—a very conservative estimate that accounts for plagues and wars—interestingly, today’s numbers make sense if the earth is only about 6,000 years old. If humans have existed for 50,000 or more years, there would be multiple trillions of people on the planet!



Dara was struggling in biology class at her public high school, where she was being taught that the theory of evolution was a scientific fact. Where could she turn to find simple but convincing evidence for the creationist’s view?


For many in our world, evolution is an open-and-shut case. Scientists have supposedly proven that it took eons for microbes to evolve into humans. But not everybody, including secularists, buys this theory. Like Dara, many have serious questions about the plausibility of evolution.


Fortunately, your caring gifts made possible an Amazing Facts resource that helped Dara look at both sides of this crucial debate. She discovered an abundance of rational and scientific evidence to support the Creation account, the worldwide flood, and the short history of the earth—as opposed to millions and millions of years. She shares, “I was blessed to learn about how creation can actually be proven! It really encouraged me in my spiritual life. I was able to combat worldly lies with wonderful truth.”


That’s what your gifts make possible every day!


You and I believe the Bible record, but how can we reach those who have been taught to disregard the Scriptures as fables? I think it’s time to present the Bible’s worldview in a simple way that appeals to people on a scientific and rational level. And you can make it happen.


Everything Begins in Genesis

Our worldview, the framework through which we understand the world, shapes our values, actions, attitudes, and the direction of our lives. Whether we believe that we evolved out of a primordial blob or that we were designed by a loving Creator, it impacts how we value—or don’t value—human life.


The Bible plainly teaches, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). The name of the first book of the Bible, Genesis, means “beginnings.” It lays the foundation for a worldview that gives us clear guidance on multiple issues, like humanity’s identity as made in God’s image, the two distinct genders, marriage, freedom of choice, the sacredness of the Sabbath. Genesis also explains the fall of humans into sin and rebellion against their Creator.


There are so many foundational truths in Genesis that help us properly understand our world, our purpose, our history, and God’s plan to rescue us from sin. Genesis gives us a solid place upon which to stand in a world with shifting, meaningless answers that leave people confused and asking, “What’s the meaning of life?”


Destroying the Foundations

It is Satan who is behind all the confusion, working feverishly to destroy the foundational truths of Genesis.


The Bible explains, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3). These foundational truths are under direct attack whenever evolution is taught. That’s why Scripture warns us not to “forget the Lord your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth” (Isaiah 51:13). We see everywhere the results of a world without an understanding of Genesis, with distorted views about our origins.


Should we be surprised to see what happens when the foundations are destroyed: murder, racism, genocides, wars, abortions, violence, hatred, hopelessness, and death?


Reaching Hearts

I have watched creation vs. evolution debates during which sarcasm and ridicule flew back and forth between both groups. This dishonors our Lord. Neither do I believe that it helps to tell secular people that the Creation happened merely because the Bible says so.


There are Christlike ways to reach non-Christians, atheists, and those who may believe that the science has been settled. Many scientists have provided solid evidence and sound reasons—as Dara learned—for believing that a Creator made our world. We must present to such people on a logical and scientific level the amazing wonders of Creation that could never have happened by chance, that could never have happened without an intelligent Creator!


Multiple branches of science—paleontology, biology, cosmology, and anthropology, to name a few—provide strong evidence to support the biblical view of Creation. For instance, paleontologists have been finding an abundance of well-preserved biological materials in rock layers dated millions of years old. One team uncovered flexible connective tissue in the femur of a fossilized Tyrannosaurus rex. But since biological materials can last only about a thousand years and dinosaurs supposedly lived more than 65 million years ago—well, something doesn’t add up!


A Creation Sharing Magazine

Amazing Facts is now preparing an attractive, bold, and colorful sharing magazine filled with stunning pictures and solid reasons, like the example above, to believe in the biblical view of our beginnings.


As last-day believers, we are called to uphold before the world heaven’s most solemn three angels’ messages, which include the call to “worship Him who made heaven and earth” (Revelation 14:7). It’s in the very DNA of God’s final church on the earth to uplift our Maker! So what are we waiting for?


The cost to write, design, print, translate, and globally distribute a new pro-Creation sharing magazine is about $350,000. We want to make this resource available to people hearing God’s truth for the first time on our TV and radio broadcasts, as well as seekers discovering truth on our websites and social media.


Will you help present the truth about our Maker and Savior? Your loving gift of $25 will help 20 people be changed by this eye-opening magazine. A compassionate gift of $100 will guide 78 seekers to the foundational truth of the three angels’ messages. And a dinosaur-sized gift of $1,000 will build the faith of thousands, helping them know about our merciful Maker—while also supporting all our other outreach efforts.


Through Amazing Facts, Dara found reasons to believe in the Creation. There are still millions more who need to know the truth about our origins, for, in the end, it will lead them to our Savior.


Pointing others to our Maker,
