Creation and Intelligent
Welcome to the website of The Believer's Newsletter,NZ.
This is Brother David Shearer's Page on Creation and Intelligent Design.
When I was 15 I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour. At this time I had a profoundly supernatural experience. At School I became an advocate for the Gospel. In science class the subject of Evolution came up. At the time I was a "pain" to my teachers. I stated "You can't teach that because it isn't true". One teacher got so annoyed one day he said "OK you teach the class then" So I did. I said "In the begining God...". If my science teachers are still alive, and reading this, I still don't apologise for standing up for the truth, and being such a pain.
Some may ask why I have a quote from Brother Branham on a page about science. He wasn't a scientist, but he has credibility. Nicodemus said to Jesus once, "no man can do the things you do, unless God be with him". Five times the dead were raised, thousands of times miracles occured, and millions of souls added to the kingdom of God. When you have done the same you will have credibility too.
A rare and finely tuned array of factors make Earth suitable for complex life. We depend on our planet's water, oxygen rich atmosphere, it's large moon, it's planetary neighbours, it's precise position in the solar system and the Milky way galaxy.
Interviews with scientists, leaders in their fields, reveal many other factors that show our planet did not just happen as a "fluke" but was designed by a loving and mighty Creator.Available from: The Privileged Planet
Excerpt from the book "Darwin's Doubt".
"In the origin of species, Darwin openly acknowledges important weaknesses in his theory and professed his own doubts about key aspects of it. Yet today's public defenders of a Darwin-only science curriculum apparently do not want these, or any other scientific doubts about contemporary Darwinian theory, reported to students. This book addresses Darwin's most significant doubt ... and how a seemingly isolated anomaly that Darwin acknowledged almost in passing has grown to become illustrative of a fundamental problem for all of evolutionary biology."
- FROM THE PROLOGUE
Charles Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. In what is known today as the "Cambrian explosion", 530 million years ago many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. In Darwin's Doubt Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal life,a mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been found, but also because scientists have learned more about what it takes to construct an animal. Expanding on the compelling case he presented in his last book, Signature in the Cell, Meyer argues that the theory of intelligent design which holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection is ultimately the best explanation for the origin of the Cambrian animals. from www.darwinsdoubt.com

A "simple" bacteria moves by means of a "molecular cilium motor". It consists of 40 components, all of which must be present for the motor to work. That's 40 factorial (40x39x38x37x36...x2) in terms of chances of happening by natural events. Even "simple" animals are very complex, with DNA providing the "blueprint" for cellular activity, carried out by RNA.

"Unlocking the Mystery of Life" is the story of top-notch, contemporary scientists who are advancing a powerful idea -- "the theory of intelligent design."
Using state-of-the-art computer animation, "Unlocking the Mystery of Life" transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakable hallmarks of design. Discover the intricacy of a microscopic bacterial rotary motor, which spins at 100,000 rpm.
Within the nucleus explore the wonder of DNA, a thread-like molecule that stores instructions to build the essential components of every living organism. It is part of a biological information processing system more complex and more powerful than any computer network. This compelling documentary examines an idea with the power to revolutionize our understanding of life... and to unlock the mystery of its origin.

Evolutionists would prefer that the Platypus was dead. And in the Fossil record. The reason - They could claim it as a "missing link". It lays eggs like a bird, has webbed feet like a duck, It is warm blooded, like a mammal, and suckles it's young like a mammal. It hunts for its food underwater like a Dolphin. This makes it a classification nightmare.
A living Dinosaur.
Lizard like and 80cm long, the tuatara is a living dinosaur, He has a third "eye" under the skin on his head, he has no ears but can still hear, and it is claimed that he is the fastest evolving creature on the planet. (But he is still a Dinosaur). He is an endangered species, living on the islands off the coast of New Zealand that are free from rats, cats, and stoats. They live a long time. One recently became a "daddy" at 111 years old. Their body temperature is a cool 5-11 degrees, which makes for slow metabolism. They enjoy sunning themselves. Their teeth are not seperate but are part of the lower jaw. The eyes of a tuatara can focus independantly and they have a duplex retina which gives both day and night vision.
This tree is called "Tane Mahuta" which in Maori means "Lord of the Forest". It is possibly the biggest living thing on the planet. It isn't the tallest tree, but it is the Girth that makes this tree so large. Also some of it's branches are 2m and 3m in diameter. The comercial wood volume has been calculated at 516 cubic metres. If you are visiting NZ, this might be worth looking at, although it is "out of the way" a bit.
Facts: Height 45.2m Girth 15.44m Diameter 4.91m Crown spread 38.4m Main Trunk Height 17.8 m Estimated wood volumne 516 m3 Age Unknown.
I have included a picture of my late wife Joy standing at the base of the tree to give some idea of proportion.
The patterns on Butterfly wings photographed over decades by Kjell Sandved. They form the Alphabet and Numerals.
"One day it suddenly dawned on me that since I had found one letter of the alphabet, there might be others flying around out there."
The most frequently occurring signs and numbers on the wings of butterflies were C, D, F, I, L and M.
More difficult to find were letters such as B, H, K, Q, T, X, plus signs and symbols.
The largest letter he ever found was the iridescent blue letter O, on the quarter-inch diameter wing of the Brazilian Morpho butterfly. The smallest letter he ever found was the 3 millimeter R on the Lycinid in Utah
God made the world. He might've been a hundred trillion years making it; I don't know how long He was, but He made it. And He didn't say how long He was, and it's none of our business how long it was. He just said, "In the beginning God created the heavens and earth," period. That settles it. That's all of it. How long He was doing it, that's... But then the creation begin to spring up now in the other time, when He begin. And I believe, that in there, that everything on earth reflects heaven. I believe that because that you see everything struggling for life is because that there is a life that it's reflected from. And I believe that when God made the man, He started reflecting the smaller things such as the animal life, and then the next thing He created was something different. That's just exactly the way the Bible says He did it. He made first the trees and the botany life, and He made man. And then the last thing that ever come from the earth in the form of creation was a man, nothing higher ever come. Because why? It was a perfect reflection of the highest in heaven, which, God is a Man. See? God is a Man; so therefore, it proves it. And when God came down to dwell among us, He was a Man. See? A Man, so it shows that the perfection of evolution was God, which is a Man.William Branham - Countdown 1962
In the begining God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.Genesis 1:1 - 2
