What about Evolution?
Is it really true????
Or is Creationism correct??
. As you are surely well aware, the correct understanding of "Origins" is very important and it has much greater consequences than most people have considered, contemplated, or imagined.
And, this is NOT just a matter pertaining ONLY to science !
Rather, the "worldview" produced by "believing" in Evolution and the "worldview" resulting from a "belief" in Creation by God are exact opposites! They are indeed poles apart !
Obviously, in these short Questions and Answers, we can not go into this very important subject in any detail..... but..... in answer to questions from many of you and particularly, in reply to the question:
Are there any books or videos which can help me understand all of this ?
The Answer is a profound YES!!!
There are MANY books, videos, Journals, etc. which can help you understand and discover the TRUTH concerning ORIGINS and the Evolution vs. Creation controversy.
As you may or may not know, contrary to the popular "teaching" today, the reported "proofs" for Evolution are really NOT there !!! ...
AND there is MUCH controversy, especially among "evolutionists" themselves -- controversies which we, for the most part, are not hearing about as they are not being reported in the textbooks, schools, universities, on TV, etc. But, there IS much controversy!
And, the "sureness" of evolution is NOT sure at all.
Below is a partial list of resources that will help you to discover more about this "debate."
ALL are important and are "MUST READS" or "MUST SEES" (in the case of the videos) by anyone who is honestly seeking the the TRUTH about the origins of the universe, our world, mankind, plants, animals, everything. ?
Print out this list for reference.
And bear in mind, this is only a partial listing. There are many more resources available.
And, those of you who lead Bible Studies, Pastor Churches, teach Sunday School Classes, are in charge of Youth Groups, etc., -- will find that the Videos will be EXCELLENT for use with these groups and can serve as wonderful "springboards" for discussions.

And there are many many more excellent sites and resources. This is just the tip of the iceberg. But, if you start here, you will surely begin to discover the TRUTH about ORIGINS!
So, do not just unquestionably "trust" the news media, the "educators" and the "scientists" to tell you HOW the world, the Universe, and EVERYTHING "came to be". Investigate for yourself.
Use these resources to discover for yourself what is true and what is "hype".
Discover for yourself the "probabilities" of everything happening by "chance."
Discover for yourself if you really came from a "big bang" and a "rock."
Why should you do this? Why should you not just blindly and trustingly "accept" the "belief" that Evolution is true? Why should you investigate and question whether everything "evolved" or whether everything was "created" with a plan and a purpose?
BECAUSE your ETERNAL DESTINY depends on it!
'Nuff said -- "a word to the wise should be sufficient." So begin with these excellent resources. I KNOW you will be stunned, thrilled, and amazed at what you discover!
