Why do Evolutionists have a Population Problem?
The Bible teaches that all humans are children of Adam and Eve who lived about 6,000 years ago. From the beginning, men were farmers and could provide for their families. About 4,400 years ago, a worldwide flood reduced the human population to eight people. The current population of over 7 billion people can be easily explained, starting with the Bible; however, evolutionists have a sizable problem.
Today the world population grows over 1% each year. If evolution is true and homo sapiens have been around for 200,000 years with a growth rate of only 0.1% (or 2.2 children per family), the world population today would be one trigintillion (a 1 with 93 zeroes). It is not possible for the evolutionary time scale to be true. Even if there were a 0.01% growth rate, there would be trillions of graves, but the graves have never been found. However, if 8 people got off the ark 4,400 years ago, with an average growth rate of only 0.47% (accounting for disease, famine, and war), the world population would be the same as it is today.
We Are All One Race - The Human Race
God created humans with a variety of DNA to produce different skin color, hair color, eye shape, etc., but that DNA is only 0.012% of your genome. If Noah had middle brown skin, then his children would possess all the DNA for the skin variations we see today. Genesis 11 records the account of the Tower of Babel, when God forced people to spread across the world by confusing their languages. This separation led to external characteristics becoming prominent in different regions (dark skin near the equator, almond-shaped eyes in cold regions).
Evolution Advances Racism but the Bible Holds the Truth About Mankind
In the book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, and the book The Descent of Man, Charles Darwin wrote that the "dark coloured races" are "barbarous", "savage", "degraded", "lower organisms" and often compared them to chimpanzees, orangutans, and apes; however, he considered himself to be a "cultivated man" part of the "white and civilized races".
Evolution has been used to justify the sin of racism, but science confirms we are all still one race with one Creator. All of us, from every culture on earth, have fallen into sin. Salvation from our sin comes only from Jesus Christ, who died in our place, and rose from the dead.
Acts 17:24, 26-27, 30-31 - "God, who made the world … has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord … Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained..."
