Chapter 9: Creation of the Earth

The Earth was created 4.5 billion years ago.

  • Modern Science and the scriptures go hand in hand for the creation of the Earth.

  • The scriptures say, “God himself that formed he Earth … he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited.”

  • The chapter discusses how stars and planets are created from Nebula.

The Earth has enough natural resources to support life.

  • Natural resources – things that are needed to support life.

    • Who determined how much steel, aluminum, copper, building materials, oil, etc. would be needed to support life on Earth?

    • A scripture quotes the Lord saying: I, the Lord, stretched out the heavens, and built the Earth, my very handiwork … And it is my purpose to provide for my saints … for the Earth is full, and there is enough and to spare.

The water cycle allows life to flourish on the Earth.

  • We discuss the properties of our atmosphere to absorb water.

  • The amount of water that can be absorbed into the air is related to the temperature of the air.

  • We discuss the evaporation properties of water.

  • We discuss the laws of science that controls cloud formation and how much water the clouds can carry―which determines how much rain there will be.

  • We discuss why this interaction of air and water are so vital for weather and life on Earth.

  • This process provides for a continuous supply of fresh water―all by chance―not hardly.

  • We discuss how snow is formed and why it is so vital for vegetation, and how this would change if snow storms were changed into ice storms.

  • All of these properties are evidence that there is a God.

The Earth’s atmosphere is the only atmosphere in our Solar System that can support life.

  • The two major components of our atmosphere are nitrogen and oxygen.

  • Both gases are colorless and odorless and about the same density allowing them to mix properly. Providing for an ideal atmosphere.

  • Oxygen and the Carbon dioxide cycle.

    • Humans and animals take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide.

    • Plants take in carbon dioxide and expel oxygen.

    • This provides a fresh supply of these critical gases on a continuous basis.

  • The amount of oxygen in our atmosphere is about 21%. Geoscientist James Kasting of Pennsylvania State University states: It’s not that easy why it should balance at 21 percent rather than ten or forty percent. We don’t understand the modern oxygen control system that well.

This chapter asks these questions: Who knew about the elements before man got here? Who knew what elements and quantity of elements would be needed to support a life on the Earth? Who knew enough to bring hydrogen and oxygen together to form water? Who knew what would be required to have weather? Who knew what would be required for our body to break down food to be digested? Who knew about the chemical reactions that would have to occur in our body to produce energy and create cells? Who knew about the chemical reaction that plants would need to build cells?

  • The only “who” available was God―the Creator of everything!

Another scripture: … inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.
