I am always prepared to give the reason for the hope that I have

This is one of my favorite Bible verses:

“… Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have …”
1 Peter 3:15

The reason for the hope that I have is my faith in God. But, more than that, the reason for the hope that I have is that I am convinced that there is scientific proof that there is a God.

My faith in God came slowly over the course of nine months (like a baby in the womb) in 1996 until it came crashing into me like a bolt of lightning.  I am in my fifties and I have believed in God for only 13 years. (See My Testimony for more information)

During those nine months, I learned that as Creator of the universe, God left his fingerprints all over his creation so that we can see that it is his handiwork. For over 40 years I was too blind to see the evidence. Now that I see the evidence, I do not know how I ever missed it.

There are many other people like me – people who look right into the face of God and cannot see it. This is the reason I like to tell other people the reasons why I believe in God.

So, how am I prepared to give the answer to everyone who asks me to give the reason for the hope that I have? I have my Reasons Why I Believe in God here in my website: X-Evolutionist.com.

In my website, I have endeavored to show the evidence that God left us to show that He is indeed the creator of the universe. I talk about the fossil record, dinosaurs, Charles Darwin, different breeds of dogs, and other topics, and show how the scientific evidence shows that life did not begin as a product of time and chance. Life required a creator, therefore God exists.

Most of you reading this, if you have made it down this far, think I am a crackpot. That does not bother me one bit. I am confident in my beliefs, and am certain the evidence supports them. I am also confident that once somebody looks at the evidence, as I did, they will see what I see.

As I said in my testimony, 13 years ago a creationist (crackpot, as I thought then) dared me to read a book. Zowie. How my life has changed since then….

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

Reasons Why I Believe in God: Outline of X-Evolutionist.com

I made this website to tell you that there are scientific reasons to believe in God. The information on this site is what I learned that convinced me that God exists. The following is a list of some of the pages on this website. These pages show the scientific evidence that proved to me that there is a God:

My Christian Testimony: How I Came to Believe in God

Here is the story about how I came to believe in God. I had lived over 40 years before I learned there was scientific evidence that God exists. Read More 

How Do Dinosaurs Fit in With Creation? Are dinosaurs alive today?

The smallest dinosaur was about the size of a chicken. Reptiles that lived with dinosaurs still live today. Iguanas, up to six feet long, and Komodo dragons, up to ten feet long, are not called dinosaurs only because dinosaurs are supposedly extinct. There is no problem with dinosaurs fitting in with creation by God. Read More 

Noah’s Ark and the Global Flood

The Global flood as described in the Bible caused the fossil record. The Ark was very large, and had room for representatives of all kinds of animals. Read More 

Charles Darwin described the problems with his theory in his book “Origin of Species”

Charles Darwin gave many reasons why his theory is not true. This page has quotes from his book, Origin of Species, stating what evidence is missing. Read More 

Recommended Reading: Books with scientific evidence that God exists

This is my short list of my very favorite books that have scientific evidence that God exists. These books are either by scientists or quote profusely from peer reviewed science journals. Read More 

The Origin of Life: How did life begin? DNA could not have happened by chance

The cell and the DNA molecule are too incredibly complex to have happened by chance. DNA is made in the cell, and the cell is made from the instructions in the DNA. The cell must have been designed. Read More 

What is Science? Is scientific fact determined by majority rule?

Scientists used to examine evidence and then make conclusions. But, the definition of what is science has been redefined by some to insist that everything have a natural explanation before the evidence is examined. Making a conclusion before examining the evidence is not scientific. Read More 

Most of what people call “evolution” is really genetics

Genetic variability is mistakenly called evolution. For something to truly evolve, it has to acquire genetic material that its parents or other ancestors didn’t already have. It has to acquire new genetic material that isn’t already in its genes. Read More 

Why Are There Evolution Frauds if Evolution is a Proven Fact?

Fraudulent evidence is used as proof for evolution. It is printed in scientific books and magazines and taught in textbooks. If actual evidence existed to prove the evolution from particles to people, it would not be necessary to make it up. Read More 

Using the Dog-Kind of Animal to Disprove Evolution

I use the dog-kind, dogs, coyotes, wolves, etc, as an example that animals are in distinct groups, such as dogs cats or bears, with no overlapping between groups. But, that each group has a lot of varieties that are able to mate and produce fertile offspring (the definition of the term species). There is no evidence in living things, or in the fossil record, that any basic kind of animal changed into any other basic kind of animal. Read More 

The Fossil Record: Evidence of the world-wide flood of the Bible

Living things fossilized after a global flood. Dead animals do not just lie there and wait to be fossilized. They rot or get eaten. Fossilization requires immediate covering with sediment. The minerals gradually replace the living tissue. The fossils give no evidence for the gradual development of animals over time. Only minor differences within species can be found. With no evidence for evolution that only leaves creation by God. Read More

The Fossil Record: Evidence of the world wide flood of the Bible

Page Contents:

How Fossils are Dated

Contrary to popular belief, the dating of fossils is very subjective and arbitrary. Sometimes fossil dating is really a circular reasoning:

  • The ages of rocks are used to date fossils
  • The ages of fossils are used to date rocks.

Here is a quote from a peer reviewed science journal saying just that:

“The procession of life was never witnessed, it is inferred. The vertical sequence of fossils is thought to represent a process because the enclosing rocks are interpreted as a process. The rocks do date the fossils, but the fossils date the rocks more accurately. Stratigraphy cannot avoid this kind of reasoning, if it insists on using only temporal concepts, because circularity is inherent in the derivation of time scales.” (O’Rourke, J.E., “Pragmatism Versus Materialism in Stratigraphy,” American Journal of Science, vol. 276, 1976, p. 53) (emphasis mine)

When a date is assigned to a fossil, it is also very important to pick the “correct” date. There are dates that are already accepted by evolutionists, and the date of a new fossil has to fit so as to not disrupt what has already been decided.

My Christian Testimony: How I Came to Believe in God

Page Contents:

Hi there! My screen name is “X-Evolutionist”, but please call me “X” for short. I’m a Christian married lady in my fifties. I’ve only believed in God for a very short time considering my age. This site is about the things I learned that got me to believe.

I Was Raised Without a Belief in God

I was taught that life on earth came about by a process of time and chance from as far back as I can remember. It was all I had ever known. There was no need for God in my philosophy as the world made sense this way. Even though my world made sense without God, I was still curious if he existed. I know now that we were designed by God to have a desire to know him.

Over the years, I would often come across Christians and I would ask them why they believed in God. I always got the same two answers: either “I’ve always believed in God” or “The Bible tells me so”. Neither of these explanations were compelling arguments for the existence of God as far as I was concerned.

However, my world was about to turn upside down…

I Met Some Friends Who Were Creationists

When I was over forty, I met some people who were Christians, and like always, I asked them why they believed that God existed. Surprisingly, they had something totally different to say. They said that they knew God existed because, according to them, the scientific evidence points to creation, and not evolution, and thus to a creator. Of course, I knew that they were ignorant, and I told them so.

But, they were very confident in what they believed. They basically dared me to read a book to see if they were right. I fought it for months, but, I ended up deciding that it wouldn’t hurt to read a book.

They Dared Me to Read A Book about Fossils

They loaned me a book about fossils. The book didn’t really have anything different than I had always been taught over the years in science classes, natural history museums and television nature shows, but it used some logical arguments that I had never heard before.

Fossils: Key to the Present
Fossils: Key to the Present
Duane Gish and Richard B. Bliss

It showed that the fossil record consists of separate and distinct types of animals with no blending in between as we are led to expect from the theory of evolution. The conclusion was that the basic types of animals were created by God and then genetic variation took off from there and developed the different types of animals within each group. For example, Collies, German Shepherds and St. Bernards are just different types of dogs, as are wolves and coyotes. Please see my page: Using the Dog-Kind of Animal to Disprove Evolution

I Read a Book about the Origin of Life – Life Required a Creator

They loaned me another book about the origin of life, how complicated life is, and how difficult it would be for life to be a product of time and chance. The book concludes that life had to be created by God.

Origin of LifeOrigin of Life
Richard B. Bliss

We in the United States are taught in public school that life was formed over time by chance. But, I have learned that this is not supported by scientific evidence.

I Read a Book about How the Scientific Evidence Matches What Is In the Bible

I read yet another book. This book, like the others, concentrated on the scientific evidence against evolution and for creation. By the time I started reading this book I had an insatiable curiosity to read more and more books.

Many Infallible ProofsMany Infallible Proofs
Henry M. Morris

This book explained that events in the first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis in the Bible fit in with the scientific evidence of the world. For instance, this book shows that the fossil record was actually caused by a world-wide flood.

I Was Surprised To Find That So Many Scientists Did Not Believe In Evolution

Most of the books I read were by scientists. This really surprised me because all my life I’d been told that evolution was “scientific” and creation was “religious”. Now, I was reading books by scientists who believed that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” as it says in the first verse of the Bible.

I was particularly interested in the scientific information because I had always been interested in science. But, as the authors were Christians, they always wove the reasons they believed the Bible through the books.

As I was learning about the fossil evidence and geology, etc, I was also learning how these things fit with what the Bible said about creation, the flood and the Tower of Babel, among other things. I learned that the Old Testament was compatible with physical and biological evidence.

Meanwhile, I Started Going to Church – And Still Read More Books by Scientists

My insatiable reading continued and I read many books. During this time, I also began dating and then fell in love with one of my friends who initially told me why he believed in God. I started going to church with him. Before church he would rehearse with the other musicians that did the music for church and I would read my books.

At Some Point, I No Longer Believed In Evolution, but I Did Not Believe In God, Either

At some point into my reading I stopped believing that evolution was supported by the scientific evidence. But, on the other hand, I still did not believe in God or creation, either. This was a very confusing period of time for me. I also was reading the Bible by this time even though I did not believe in God. During church I would listen to the music and the sermon politely, I but never believed any of it – until one morning about nine months after I started reading that first book about fossils.

Suddenly, I Was Filled With the Holy Spirit

One Sunday morning during rehearsal I was reading one of my books and I suddenly started to cry. I didn’t know why. But I kept reading. I started to shake and continued to cry, but I kept reading. All of a sudden, I felt something that I can only describe as being filled by God. I suddenly believed everything. I believed in God, I believed that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” and I believed that Jesus is the name of God.

My boyfriend was still rehearsing, but he could see that something was happening to me. When rehearsal was over he came to sit by me and we both cried during church. After church, the pastor’s wife came running over to me. It was obvious what was happening to me.

I Accepted Jesus as My Lord and Savior

At this point I couldn’t talk because I was crying and shaking so much, but she led me through a prayer and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and became born again as a Christian.

This all happened during nine months during the year 1996. Since then, I have kept reading more books. Each book gives me more and more confirmation of what I now know to be true.

Now I Want To Tell You Why I Believe In God

Now, I want to share the things I’ve learned with others. I want others to know that there is scientific proof that God exists.

I feel that God has a plan for me. I believe that He had me wait until now to believe in God so I would be passionate about telling others why I believe.

By the way, a short time after I became a Christian my boyfriend proposed marriage and we are now very happily married.

More About Me

I live with my wonderful hubby, 2 great mutts, 1 African grey parrot, 2 cockatiels, 6 parakeets, two bunnies and a backyard pond full of goldfish. I am from California, but I live in Oklahoma City.

I don’t smoke, don’t drink, and do not eat animals. Oddly, my religious beliefs, came much later in my life and have nothing to do with these choices. I have worked in the field of civil engineering for many years.

I spend my time with my hubby and my pets, watching old movies, reading, crocheting, listening to music and telling people why I believe in God.

Here are some pictures of my pets:
