Daily Devotional – November 13
Have you considered our genetic code? Genetic scientists can now track genetic mistakes on the human genome. They are finding that each generation is adding genetic mistakes, not getting better. The genetic code is rapidly deteriorating; there is an increasing incident of birth defects. With such rapid deterioration of the human genome, evolutionists can hardly believe that humans exist! That’s because they assume that humans have been around for some 100,000 years (some say millions). Yet, humans do exist and are not extinct. This can only mean that humans have not been around as long as evolutionists assume.
The biblical view that humans have been around for about 6,000 years, with only 200 or so generations since Adam and Eve. This agrees with what we see in science and observations of the rapidly deteriorating the human genome. Human DNA currently contains over 5000 mistakes leading to various genetic diseases. Adam and Eve were created perfect. Their children married brothers and sisters. It was not until the time of Moses that God prohibited the marriage between close relatives. God saw that this was necessary to minimize offspring becoming deformed. Our genetic code is deteriorating - not improving. How old is the Earth and its creatures? When we examine the genetic code, it says we live in a young Earth, just as God tells us in the Bible.
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
~ Romans 8:22
