22 Messages of Hope (and Science) for Creationists

Some of you may have seen the debate between Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. Here is a link to the debate.

But, have thought about questions for your evolutionist friends, relatives and acquaintances? Ethan Siegel has brought to us 22 questions that we can open up the minds of the evolutionists.

2. Are you scared of a Divine Creator?
The Universe is vast — some 46 billion light years in radius — with at least 200 billion galaxies and around 10^25 planets, total, in just the part of it that’s observable to us. There are some 10^91 particles existing in the Universe right now, all of which were created some 13.8 billion years ago. But as big as these numbers are, they are finite.

3. Is it completely illogical that the Earth was created mature?

4. Does not the second law of thermodynamics disprove evolution?
Very quickly, no. The second law of thermodynamics states that the entropy (a physically quantifiable and measurable entity) of an isolated system can never decrease. And I definitely understand that when you look at the total entropy on the surface of the Earth today — versus the surface of the Earth some 4.5 billion years ago — we clearly are in a lower entropy state today.

5. How do you explain a sunset if [there] is no God?
How can you explain the sunset, in all its beauty, without appealing to the divine? You and I may have differing opinions on what makes something beautiful, but you’d have to be someone I couldn’t understand at all if you said that the sunset didn’t fall into the beautiful category.
