The Reason for Death
And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.(Genesis 2:8-9) ESV
We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) use deductive reasoning to resolve supposed conflicts between the Bible and what people refer to as “science” but which we’ve isolated and identified to be THE NARRATIVE (SciPop).
One of the techniques which we find to be productive is the use of deductive questions. It’s a way of applying an emotionless and logical approach to things which may otherwise be ill defined. One of the questions that we want to answer is: why was the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden?
Pursuing this line of reasoning helps us to determine that Adam and Eve can’t have been the reason for the fall of creation. If there was a tree of knowledge, then good and evil existed before Adam and Eve therefore they can’t be responsible for it. They were responsible for the fall of man, but the creation itself was created in a fallen state. This was necessary in order to manifest free will.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.(Titus 3:9) KJV
By a totally staggering coincidence the phrase tree of life is used in secular culture to refer to the phylogenetic tree of evolutionary relationships. The irony being that this isn’t describing evolution, it’s describing abiogenesis.
Abiogenesis is the creative will of God expressed as progressively more complex biological life over the course of the 6 days of creation.– Abiogenesis, definition
Evolution is Devolution
Devolution is change in allele frequency in a population, combined with accumulated mutations and DNA replication errors, that causes genomic decay, sickness, and loss of variability over time. It includes both macro and micro evolution. It began at the fall of man in Genesis 3:16.– Devolution, definition
Evolution is completely different. Evolution is an extensively documented process of change over time, arguing against it makes Christians look stupid. Here’s the thing: evolution isn’t the origin of humanity (Principle VII), it’s a process of genetic decay which started at the fall of man in Genesis 3. In order to reflect this nuance we have renamed evolution to devolution.
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
Sin and Death
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:(Romans 5:12) KJV
The process of devolution requires the passage of heritable traits from generation to generation. In the mainstream science narrative of godless existence it’s taken billions of years for primordial slime to develop into the biodiversity that we see today. This process involved the death of billions of sentient beings. This is a problem because there was no death before sin, and Adam and Eve were the first to sin. The evolutionary basis of the Phylogenetic Tree of Life is impossible.
Therefore, by deduction, evolution is what happened after sin entered the world. Incidentally that’s why we renamed it devolution. However, biodiversity did a reboot after Noah’s flood and so we can hone in on the context of devolution.
Devolution is the process of genetic change over time by which the animal kinds saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the current distribution of biodiversity.– Devolution, context
Did you see that? We just incorporated evolution into the broad narrative of scripture. You’re welcome. Christians need to stop making fools of themselves on social media arguing against evolution.
