About the Author
Acting in the role of an investigative journalist, John Thomas (Random House author of "Take Charge of Tomorrow -- and Change It!"), exposes the sham of evolution that has hoodwinked the intellectual elite of the western world for over a century. The "Human Genome Project" arrived at the end of the evolutionary rainbow only to find that DNA lacks the information required to set the shape, design and dimensions of any organism or even single organ. Let alone explaining how complex but complementary sex organs could possible evolve in separate male and female forms of any organism. Written in simple language, but approved for technical accuracy by a top Porton Down scientist, this book is required reading for any Christian person wishing to understand the arguments and errors of evolution and how misguided "young-earth" creationists helps keep Darwinism alive. EvoGenesis corrects the extreme errors of both evolution and creationism to form a "new synthesis", showing the Genesis account of creation to be scientifically accurate and literally true.

Notwithstanding any interpretation of Genesis 1 made to suit or accommodate one's evolutionary beliefs, "The Literal System and the Analogy of Faith are compatible hermeneutical principles", each making a 'valid and necessary contribution' in the understanding and interpretation of Scriptures. God has not left it to puny man to interpret Scriptures to suit one's biased doctrinal or professional position [1 Peter 1:20-21] by indulging in eisegesis - reading into the Bible what one actually wants to see in tune with one's beliefs. Rather, God wants us to simply take His Word at its face-value wherever it makes a 'literal or normal sense' as we do in any human literary work. As such, it is unwise if not heretical to state that "Genesis 1 matches the scientific scenario in that it describes a beginning point followed by the development of life stages, with animals and then humans appearing in the last stage. When the chapter is viewed in this way, there is no need for any conflict between creation and evolution" [Rex Morgan]. Did Moses and all the other OT prophets, or Jesus Christ and all the Apostles looked at Genesis 1 as a 'story' narrating the "development of life stages"? Were these Holy Men of God Theistic Evolutionists? Absolutely not. To assume as such, is to display one's ignorance in the matters of true Biblical Christian Faith and an inclination to hold on to one's beliefs/assumptions no matter how false or unscriptural and unscientific these assumptions may be.
Hopefully, Evo-Genesis and other related resources [e.g. BIBLICAL CREATION TRUTH] will open the biased minds of those who have been taken captive by the 'god of this world' in adopting evolutionary lies that do not make any logical sense even to the professing atheistic evolutionists. Unlike the cocky Theistic Evolutionists, who boast of having descended from some dumb "Common Ancestor" and not from any literal Adam and Eve, the Atheistic Evolutionists at least admit, though shamelessly, that they do not have any single scientifically approved "Theory of Evolution" that is plausible and equally acceptable to all the Scientists; and, that they simply 'randomly' teach by 'chance' the so-called "Neo-Darwinian and related Theories of Evolution". This, as they say, they teach because according to their shameful admission there is no single 'Theory of Evolution' that is scientifically accurate and tenable so as to be taught with conviction and not because there is any established scientific truth in the prevailing Theories of Evolution as is blindly believed by the Theistic Evolutionists. No wonder, Theistic Evolutionists have nothing concrete to present and substantiate their position but desperately hang on to evolutionary myths with religious faith.
As to WHY the prevailing evolutionary lies are "covered up" and "Christianized" by the so-called Theistic/Evolutionary Creationists without, at the same time, providing any concrete scientific and biblical evidence to support their position is a mystery, in itself. Nevertheless, the so-called Theistic Evolutionists and their recent zealous followers who BELIEVE in Evolution want to denounce those who do not subscribe to vague evolutionary lies branding them as 'ignorant and hostile and unscientific'. In doing so, they only serve and please the Devil--the father of evolutionary lies such as the supposed Descent of Man from some Common Ancestor contrary to revealed Biblical Creation Truth. As such, they do not believe that human beings have descended from Adam and Eve as is taught by God in the Holy Bible. Accursed, indeed, are those who have not seen nor can prove the Descent of Man from some mysterious Common Ancestor, and yet believe in the same with zealous religious blind faith. And, Blessed, indeed, are those who have not seen Adam and Eve nor the Second Adam descending from them, and yet believe in these historical personages. After all, the Holy Bible states it as infallible truth, and that settles it for them, once for all!
I challenge both the Atheistic and Theistic Evolutionists to present concrete factual scientific evidence to prove 'Evolutionary Creation' of Man or Man's so-called descent from some dumb 'Common Ancestor" [and, that Adam and Eve were not directly created by God from the dust of the earth as described in Genesis 2 narrating the real Beginning of Mankind as a distinct Human Race after God-Kind or Imago Dei, even as the same fact has been plainly taught by Jesus Christ and the Apostles]. As otherwise, they will be guilty of believing and propagating damnable lies if they blindly base their evolutionary-doctrinal position merely on unscientific guesses and vague speculations; and, next depend on these evolutionary myths in a vain attempt to expose any presumed 'ignorance and unscientific hostile spirit' on the part of those who don't agree with them. They need to first boldly convince those atheistic evolutionists who openly admit that the diverse Theories of Evolution are not scientifically accurate so as to be taught and promulgated with conviction.
Will any of the so-called Theistic Evolutionists, therefore, please stand up and provide credible scientific and biblical evidence that is convincingly acceptable to all the Theologians and Christian Scientists alike, if not to the 'lay-ignorant folks', and support their Theistic or 'Evolutionary-Creation' position? If not, they'll do better to keep their mouths shut and then as 'spiritual babes' grow up in the true Biblical Christian Faith that is free from evolutionary jargon of myths, lies, and vague speculations that are definitely abominable to a Holy Creator God. After all, God Willed a perfect Creation, Spoke it into existence, and the perfect completed Creation stood fast, according to the Holy Bible.For details read Why We Believe in Creation Not in Evolution Exactly HOW, and How Fast about 'God's Works of Creation' NO Man can really find out, states the same Holy Bible. Hence, any human effort to guess about the 'how' of creation by adopting evolutionary concepts is bound to be misleading and erroneous and, therefore, it is an exercise in futility and will serve no spiritual purpose at all. And, certainly erroneous un-biblical speculations cannot glorify God! Baseless and fallible assumptions will serve no purpose other than to perpetuate evolutionary false convictions and beliefs of the biased Theistic Evolutionists. However, in endorsing vague evolutionary concepts, theistic evolutionists, at the moment, are only inviting disdain as well as scorn/ridicule from the arrogant atheistic evolutionists whose sole ignoble goal is to discredit the true Biblical Christian Faith at all costs, and will, therefore, never join hands with the Theistic Evolutionists and worship their false god of "Evolution and Creation".
And, next, to teach that God gradually "perfects" regenerated Man through a "Process" of "Spiritual Evolution" is the height of human folly. It is subtly heretical in as much as every converted Man who is "In CHRIST" is a "New Creation" instantly upon belief, and is, therefore, "Complete" and "Perfect" through the indwelling Spirit of the Risen Perfect Christ. Gradually Growing in Grace [that is, in Christian virtues] and in the Knowledge of Truth isn't meant for the Christian's "perfection" or "gradual maturity" to finally become a "New Creation". It is for his or her Sanctification by acquiring a growing measure of holiness through conformity with the Risen Christ whilst still living in the 'flesh and blood', and thereby bring into subjection the stubborn 'old man', eventually putting him to death, so to say, by faith; that is, by identifying with the death of Christ, 'crucifying our old sinful self'. Next, 'growing in grace' is to build up and strengthen one's Christian's faith in his or her already accomplished and established Perfection by identifying with the "New Creation in Christ". It is through the Spirit of indwelling Christ any true Christian is perfectly complete and wholly spiritually mature from the moment of his or her conversion, and not through any gradual process of "Spiritual Evolution". As such, there is no room for any one to postulate any un-biblical process of some vague "Spiritual Evolution' ending up in a New Creation.For specific details about Man's New Creation in Christ, read BIBLICAL CREATION TRUTH.
Or, Does CHRISTIAN PERFECTION through 'SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION' really results or produces a "NEW CREATION"? Is it, therefore, a process of "Spiritual Creation AND Evolution" through "billions of eternities"? Perhaps it is so, according to the Theistic Evolutionists; and, therefore, in tune with the supposed Natural Evolution of Man apart from Adam, it has to be a "gradually maturing process of spiritual evolution" brought about by 'chance forces' apart from any direct New Creation in Christ; which implies that any 'born-again' Christian is yet to become complete and mature into a 'New Creation' in the distant eternity future [?], or through zillions of years of spiritual creation and evolution. However, since, according to the Bible, the true Christians are already spiritually "PERFECT IN CHRIST" [Colossians 1:28] and "COMPLETE IN CHRIST" [Colossians 2:10] absolutely lacking in nothing, any so-called process of "Spiritual Evolution" for 'betterment' of the regenerated spiritually born-again Christians supposedly thereby 'gradually maturing as a new creation' has to be, spiritually speaking, nothing but vague theological nonsense that is certainly wholly heretical and, therefore, loathsome and abominable to the true Creator God!God forbid the promulgation of such heresies based on evolutionary myths. The reader will do well to read The Vanishing Proofs of Evolution,The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution and Evolution Impossible.
Firstly, which is a vast majority of the book, Thomas addresses Evolution and its short-comings and failures and how evolution needs a mechanism to work which scientist really just have a 'faith' in anyway. He presents his arguments and research into them, of which seem quite plausible and even myself perhaps hold more doubt over macro-evolution than I did to previously reading. He also touches on the failings of research blinded by bias, caused by belief in no alternative, or making answers fit just to insure the next funding grant. Unfortunately from there, it goes down hill for me... because, he kind of does just that with this evogenesis theory.
Before that though... Thomas seems to often like having what I see are rather immature, childlike personal 'digs' at other evolutionists - people such as Darwin, Dawkins and other prominent people in (or that were) this field. A bit of fun an humour is ok - in the right context, but I thought this was meant to be a smart discussion and discourse on the facts and origins of life.
He also briefly mentions in a chapter or so that evolution leaves no room for 'man's purpose/meaning in life' etc and then glosses over 'evolution and morality' in one quick sentence or two, a topic which alone could fill books twice the length which decent study into is a rather important part of this debate.
But back to evogenesis.... Lastly, and that is very lastly, apart from a few glimpses throughout, he finally gets to this concept of evo-genesis. Only a small part at the end of the book is left to explain this concept which he also seems to gloss over quickly in a matter-of-fact way, assuming it's all true and he doesn't seem to apply the same extensive inquiry, research and unbiased effort into it as he does with his arguments against evolution, rather reads a bible verse or two and concludes that it means this or that in a way which supports his theories. Well, that's the impression I got anyway, perhaps if he devoted the same amount of pages to the argument for evo-genesis as he does to the argument against evolution that might have helped.
So, because of this brief look at the end, a lot of it comes across as clutching at straws. Drawing a lot (and I mean a lot) of this entire concept out of merely the first 35 words of the bible (Genesis 1:1-2)? It just seems to have created more questions than answers. It just seemed to (eventually) fall back into light, un-researched or biased exegesis to explain this theory of evogenesis rather than give me a meaty and heavy counter-theory to the two popular ones currently out there.
