Where did we come from?

The Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution are taught as if they are scientific facts. The word "theory" is usually ignored. (Theory: A proposed explanation whose status is still conjectural. Conjecture: The formation or expression of an opinion or theory without sufficient evidence for proof. -Random House Webster's College Dictionary 1991.) These "theory's" are quite convenient for those who do not wish to believe in an eternal, omnipresent, creator God.

But what does it take more faith to believe?

The big bang theory? First there was nothing at all, and all of a sudden a "infinitesimally small, infinitely hot, infinitely dense" singularity formed, which appeared out of nowhere for reasons unknown, which inflated, expanded and cooled, going from very, very small and very, very hot, to the size and temperature of our current universe, and continues to expand and cool to this day (from The cooling led to the evolvement of atoms, protons, neutrons, quarks, etc., and apparently, eventually--us, I assume. And thus we have the universe and everything in it, organized, efficient, all parts moving in sync, all brought together by a random, unintelligent something or other. Take your car apart, piece by piece, how many millions of years do you think it will take for all the parts to come back together to make a whole car, or something better, without an intelligent being putting it back together? (The parts will be kind of rusty by then.)

Then there is the theory of evolution. We all came from the sea, and over time evolved from sea creatures, to land creatures, to us. Apparently going from improvement to improvement. I wonder what we will be a million years from now under this theory??? Nature teaches us matter doesn't improve over time, but diminishes and decays. We get old and we die, we don't get younger and better. Metal rusts, cloth wears out, flesh goes back to dust.

Creation (not a theory) is explained in the Word of God, how an intelligent, eternal, omnipresent, everlasting, Spirit -- God, created the all that exists, and created a Spirit Being -- Man (not a non-spirit being -- ape) after His image and likeness, and man became a living soul.

Which explanation of creation takes more faith to believe? I suppose if you don't want to believe that everything, including us, was created by God, then you can probably stretttttttttch your faith way, way out there and accept that everything came about randomly as in the big bang theory or things are progressing and getting better and better as in the theory of evolution. It's just much easier for me to believe in an intelligent Creator.

What happened between Genesis 1:1 and 2?

"For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water. Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men."
2 Peter 3:5-7.

The world of Noah's day didn't perish, these scriptures refer to the period between Genesis 1:1 and 2. Notice that Genesis 1:2 states that the "darkness was upon the face of the deep (or waters). And the Spirit of God moved on the face of the waters." Genesis 1:9 states "And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place and let the dry land appear, and it was so." God didn't create the earth filled with water, He created the earth and it was destroyed by a great flood, long before the re-creation of the earth and the creation of present day mankind.

But why?:

The New Living Translation
Ezekiel 28:12-17
"Son of man, weep for the king of Tyre. Give him this message from the Sovereign LORD: You were the perfection of wisdom and beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God. Your clothing was adorned with every precious stone – red carnelian, chrysolite, white moonstone, beryl, onyx, jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald – all beautifully crafted for you and set in the finest gold. They were given to you on the day you were created. I ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian. You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire. "You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you. Your great wealth filled you with violence, and you sinned. So I banished you from the mountain of God. I expelled you, O mighty guardian, from your place among the stones of fire. Your heart was filled with pride because of all your beauty. You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth and exposed you to the curious gaze of kings."

Lucifer (king of Tyre) was placed on earth as a guardian, perfect in beauty, blameless in all he did, till iniquity was found in him, his heart was filled with pride. He actually thought he could dethrone Almighty God and take His place. His beauty caused his pride, but could it have been something else as well?

The New Living Translation
Isaiah 14:12-15
"How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning! You have been thrown down to the earth, you who destroyed the nations of the world. For you said to yourself, 'I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God's stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north. I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.'
But instead, you will be brought down to the place of the dead, down to its lowest depths.

There were pre-Adamic nations on earth before the world was destroyed by a great flood and re-created for present day mankind. We know that Lucifer deceived them and they were destroyed. Could it have been that they began to worship him because of his beauty, is that why his heart was lifted up? Or was it because he became so enthralled with his own beauty that he deceived them into worshipping him instead of God? We can only conjecture about this because the bible doesn't reveal much about this period.

This was the period of the dinosaurs. Maybe they were a judgement of the people of that period because they began to worship Lucifer. Maybe they were gentle and became ferocious, again we can only conjecture.

The bible does reveal that these pre-Adamic nations were weakened by Lucifer's rebellion and pride and eventually destroyed. We don't know how long the period was between this destruction and the re-creation of the earth and the creation of the Adamic race in Genesis 1:2-31.

Lucifer was cast down to the earth because of his fall, not to hell, but to the earth. He was already here as Satan when Adam and Eve were created, ready to tempt them to sin. He is called the "Prince of the power of the Air" (Eph. 2:2), his dwelling is in the atmosphere of the earth, not in heaven or hell. I'm sure if truth were known, he doesn't want to go anywhere near hell. But he doesn't mind deceiving us and causing our destruction like he caused the destruction of the pre-Adamic nations.

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Genesis 1:1

There seems to be a descrepancy between the Bible and Science because scientists say the world is millions of years old, yet many Christian's believe it is only about six thousand years old. Science is right! But the bible is not wrong. There could be eons between verse 1 and verse 2 of Genesis 1. Verse 2 actually should read "and the earth became without form and void". The rest of Genesis 1 is not the story of the creation of the earth, but the story of the re-creation.
