OVERPOPULATION: Did you know that there are 261,797 square miles in Texas, or 7,298,481,500,000 square feet? Suppose for a minute that you were to move the entire world population to Texas, say 7,000,000,000 people; how much space do you think each person would have if it were divided equally? The answer is just over 1000 square feet per person. That is about the size of a small home. Before we converted our two car garage into a family room, our three bedroom, two bath home was only 1100 square feet. When you think of it that way, the world does not seem over crowded at all. In fact, if you were to take the same 7,000,000,000 people and divide them by four, representing a family, there are 1,750,000,000 families on earth. If each family had an equal share of the land, their homes could be 4400 square feet, or that comes to about a tenth of an acre each.

EVOLUTION: Switching gears slightly, look for a moment at how the world population grew to its present size. Evolutionists like to suggest today's world population would have taken much longer than most Creationists believe the world has been here. However, not according to the Ussher Chronology, a 17th-century chronology of the history of the world formulated from a literal reading of the Bible by James Ussher, an Anglican Archbishop. Ussher's chronology is sometimes associated with Young Earth Creationism, which holds that the universe was created only a few millennia ago.

So, how long ago would the world flood have had to occurred to arrive at today's population?

"...Assume that the average family has 4 children who later have families of their own....For these conditions which are not at all unreasonable, the population at the end of 5 generations would be 96, after 10 generations, 3,070; after 15 generations, 98,300; after 20 generations, 3,150,000; and after 30 generations, 3,220,000,000. In one more generation (31) the total would increase to 6.5 billion." (Quoted from World Population Since Creation by Lambert Dolphin).

Now let’s figure a generation is forty years, then it would need to have been here 1240 years; if seventy, then 2170 years; if one hundred, then 3100 years. Ironically, the Bible records Noah's flood as happening around 2350 B.C. or about 4360 years ago.

Other myths include the Big Bang Theory, the Pulse Theory, Global Warming, etc, about which I have written in past posts. One either believes in God's revelation to man, the Bible, or he doesn't. Those of us who do believe it, certainly should not feel superior to those who question, doubt, or ridicule it. Our faith was given to us by grace (Eph. 2:8-9). Until one becomes a believer, and accepts the entire Word of God as truth, it is not likely that what I have written will change people's minds. I pray the Holy Spirit will uses it to at least get some to start considering the fact that science might just possibly be misreading the data.
