Former Evolutionist Uses Science to Debunk Evolution
by Allie Martin
(AgapePress) - A former evolutionist is helping Christians defend what God's Word says about the origins of the universe.Dr. Grady McMurtry is a biblical scientific creationist who equips Christians to stand against the flawed arguments supporting the theory of evolution. McMurtry says evolutionists are constantly having to revise their argument.
"Just as evolution says things are constantly changing, so does the fairy tales that support evolution constantly change," McMurtry says. "Every time we find a new principle, and new piece of data, a new fossil evidence, we look across the skies and out across the space with [the] Hubble [telescope] and so forth. We find things that contradict the evolutionary worldview, that contradict the story they've most recently told about how it came about""Evolutionists are just spending their time today revising fairy tales," he says.
McMurtry was raised on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley. He earned his science degrees as an evolutionist, but he did not become a biblical creationist until more than a year after he committed his life to Christ. Now, McMurtry is an educational missionary who defends the Bible's account of creation.
"There's a totally different interpretation of the fossil record, which shows that, in fact, the fossil record is not what they show in the textbooks. The layers are not out there in the nice, neat, clean order that they show them in the textbooks," he says. "In fact, the layers are upside down, they're missing, they're out of order, they're interlaced."
"What they teach in the schools about the dinosaurs, the fossils, and the fossil layers is simply not true. It's one big lie," he says. "We have the science behind a young earth. We have the actual physical evidence of Noah's flood, and that it occurred only about 4,500 years ago.
McMurtry offers seminars and resources through the Orlando-based Creation Worldview Ministries.
