What did God Create? 

Faith may be defined briefly as an illogical belief
in the occurrence of the improbable.
-H. L. Mencken

According to the Bible's defenders, God revealed his secrets to a handful of unknown scribes. Nobody knows anything about or who those select people are, except for what they wrote in the Bible. In essence, the Bible's defenders urge that Scripture be accepted as truthful fact based on innumerable layers of hearsay testimony.

Now if there such thing as a God who revealed his secrets to these select few, then it is reasonable to expect that the information from these unnamed revealers should match up with what is known about the universe today.

What we will find instead, is that there is not a single discovery in science which was revealed through the Bible. At best, the Bible reveals the state of ignorance in ancient times-even to the point where ancients were ignorant about where their personal thoughts came from, when they believed they were revealed by God.

God created all things

Let us start with the theological assertion that God created all things. All is a powerful word, meaning there are no exceptions. It is commonplace for believers to rationalize about things they don't like, such as evil, as something God had no responsibility for. If that were the case, then God could not be the creator of all things.

31And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day. (Gen. 1:31)

24Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; (KJV Isaiah 42:24)

7I form light and create darkness, I make weal and create woe, I am the LORD, who do all these things. (Isaiah 45:7)

16Not like these is he who is the portion of Jacob, for he is the one who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of his inheritance; the LORD of hosts is his name. (Jer. 10:16)

16for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities-all things were created through him and for him. (Col. 1:16)

9and to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; (Eph. 3:9)

11"Worthy art thou, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for thou didst create all things, and by thy will they existed and were created." (Rev 4:11)


Because the biblical writers knew nothing about gravity, the concept of an earth floating in space was unimaginable. The idea of a spherical earth was equally out of the question; people would fall off, they thought.

Earth has foundations

21Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? (Isaiah 40:21)

5Thou didst set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be shaken.(Psalms 104:5)

Earth rests on pillars

8.For the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, and on them he has set the world. (1 Sam. 2:8)

Earth doesn't move.

30tremble before him, all the earth; yea, the world stands firm, never to be moved. (1 Chron. 16:30)

1.Yea, the world is established; it shall never be moved; (Psalms 93:1)

Earth has corners

12He will raise an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. (Isa. 11:12)

1After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth. (Rev. 7:1)

Earth has ends

64And the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other; and there you shall serve other gods, of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known. (Deut. 28:64) Notice the mention of other gods.

9He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, he burns the chariots with fire! (Psalms 46:9)

33"And those slain by the LORD on that day shall extend from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.(Jeremiah 25:33)

8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them; (Matt. 4:8) Note: A spherical earth does not allow all of the kingdoms of the world to be seen from a single vantage point.

Earth sits on the water.

6to him who spread out the earth upon the waters, for his steadfast love endures for ever; (Psalm 136:6)

9And God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear." (Gen 1:9)

Planetary Motion

A sun that moves around earth and a sun and moon capable of remaining motionless

13And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. (Josh 10:13)

Where the sun goes down in noon

9"And on that day," says the Lord GOD, "I will make the sun go down at noon, and darken the earth in broad daylight.(Amos 8:9)

A place where the sun moves backward

11And Isaiah the prophet cried to the LORD; and he brought the shadow back ten steps, by which the sun had declined on the dial of Ahaz. (2 kings 20:11)

A star whose light has GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) accuracy

9When they had heard the king they went their way; and lo, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came to rest over the place where the child was. (Matt 2:9)

Where stars fall on to earth

25and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. (Mark 13:25)

13and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale; (Rev. 6:13)


Heaven is described as a physical place where the creator God all the other gods dwell. This doesn't match up with the contemporary depiction of God being everywhere at once. Instead, it fits with the pagan depiction of gods having a dwelling place.

Heaven is contained by a solid dome above Earth.

6And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." (Gen 1:6)

18Can you, like him, spread out the skies, hard as a molten mirror? (Job 37:18)

22Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of a firmament, shining like crystal, spread out above their heads. (Ez. 1:22)

3And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. (Dan. 12:3)

Heaven rains brimstone and fire

24Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; (Gen. 19:24)

10But Elijah answered the captain of fifty, "If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty." Then fire came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. (2 Kings 1:10)

Stones fall from heaven

11And as they fled before Israel, while they were going down the ascent of Beth-horon, the LORD threw down great stones from heaven (Joshua 10:11)

God dwells in heaven

11And as soon as we heard it, our hearts melted, and there was no courage left in any man, because of you; for the LORD your God is he who is God in heaven above and on earth beneath. (Joshua 2:11)

God has a throne in heaven

4The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven; (Psalm 11:14)

Other gods dwell alongside God's throne

19And Micaiah said, "Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing beside him on his right hand and on his left; (1 Kings 22:19)

God sees earth from heaven

19that he looked down from his holy height, from heaven the LORD looked at the earth, (Psalm 102:19)

Jesus carried up to heaven

If Jesus was carried up to heaven, then he couldn't have been dwelling in heaven at the time of creation.

51While he blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven (Luke 24:51)

War, violence and armies in heaven

Heaven is not a place where the dead can live in peace

12From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and men of violence take it by force. Matt. 11:12)

7Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, (Rev. 12:7)

14And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, followed him on white horses. (Rev. 19:14)

Heaven will not last forever

35Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. (Matt. 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33)


Creationists complain about gaps in fossil records. Well, there a few gaps in the biblical record. The following list summarizes God's bizarre creations.


Job describes Behemoth as a kind of a super ox.

15"Behold, Behemoth, which I made as I made you; he eats grass like an ox.
16Behold, his strength in his loins, and his power in the muscles of his belly.
17He makes his tail stiff like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together.
18His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like bars of iron.
19"He is the first of the works of God; let him who made him bring near his sword! (Job 40:15-19)


Horse like animals with a long horn on their forehead.

22God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn. (Num. 23:22 KJV)

7And the unicorns shall come down with them, (Isaiah 34:7 KJV)

Unusual fowls

Four legged creeping fowls with the bodies of winged insects.

20All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you (Lev. 11:20 KJV) See same verse below.

20"All winged insects that go upon all fours are an abomination to you. (Lev. 11:20) Newer revisions associate fowl with winged insects.

Bald locusts

The regular kind must have had hair on their heads.  

22Of them you may eat: the locust according to its kind, the bald locust according to its kind, the cricket according to its kind, and the grasshopper according to its kind. (Lev. 11:22)

Winged insects with four feet

23But all other winged insects which have four feet are an abomination to you. (Lev. 11:23)

Rare hares

They chew cud and have hoofs. Badgers said to have hoofs

6And the hare, because it chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you. (Lev. 11:6)

7Yet of those that chew the cud or have the hoof cloven you shall not eat these: The camel, the hare, and the rock badger, because they chew the cud but do not part the hoof, are unclean for you. (Deut. 14:7)


33Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps. (Deut. 32:33, KJV)

29I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls. (Job 30:29, KJV )

20The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls. (Isa. 43:20, KJV)

2And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, (Rev 21:2)


Depicted as having pointed ears, short horns, the head and trunk of a man, and the hind legs of a goat, and as being fond of acting riotous.

14And wild beasts shall meet with hyenas, the satyr shall cry to his fellow; yea, there shall the night hag alight, and find for herself a resting place. (Isaiah 34:14)

7So they shall no more slay their sacrifices for satyrs, after whom they play the harlot. This shall be a statute for ever to them throughout their generations. (Lev. 17:7)

15and he appointed his own priests for the high places, and for the satyrs, and for the calves which he had made. (2 Chron. 11:15)

Sea Monsters

They are not whales or just creatures of the sea. By tracing the Hebrew root, tannin, we find them to be those mythological monsters, serpents or dragons.

21So God created the great sea monsters [tannin] and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. (Gen. 1:21)

21And God created great whales [tannin] . (Gen. 1:21 KJV)

6Then the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. (Num. 21:6)

15who led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, (Deut. 21:6 )

Flying serpents

6An oracle on the beasts of the Negeb. Through a land of trouble and anguish, from where come the lioness and the lion, the viper and the flying serpent, (Isaiah 30:6)

Dust eating serpents

14The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you above all cattle, and above all wild animals; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.(Gen 3:14)

Talking animals

3030And the ass said to Balaam, "Am I not your ass, upon which you have ridden all your life long to this day? Was I ever accustomed to do so to you?" (Num. 11:30)

30And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." (Gen 1:30)


16And Ishbibenob, one of the descendants of the giants, whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of bronze, and who was girded with a new sword, thought to kill David. (2 Sam. 21:16)

33And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim); and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them." (Num. 13:33)


Let Creations deny Darwinian evolution all they want. According to the word of God, Jacob put streaked wooden rods in front of Laban's flock when they mated. The sight of the rods caused the offspring to have striped, speckled and spotted colorings.

37Then Jacob took fresh rods of poplar and almond and plane, and peeled white streaks in them, exposing the white of the rods.
38He set the rods which he had peeled in front of the flocks in the runnels, that is, the watering troughs, where the flocks came to drink. And since they bred when they came to drink,
39the flocks bred in front of the rods and so the flocks brought forth striped, speckled, and spotted.
40And Jacob separated the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the striped and all the black in the flock of Laban; and he put his own droves apart, and did not put them with Laban's flock.
41Whenever the stronger of the flock were breeding Jacob laid the rods in the runnels before the eyes of the flock, that they might breed among the rods,
42but for the feebler of the flock he did not lay them there; so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.
43Thus the man grew exceedingly rich, and had large flocks, maidservants and menservants, and camels and asses. (Gen. 30:37-43)
