No Regard for the Creator

The fact that the entire World Perished in the Genesis Flood has been scoffed about for thousands of years. Even today there are men and women scientists and educators who systematically deny that there was a Global Flood of Noah as described in the Bible.

What is it that they are trying to remove? God's compelling testimony of Global Death through a catastrophic flood. He has placed on every continent, every land and under every sea the vivid record of a global flood.

In this message examining Genesis 6:1-8, we will find this World that Perished in the Genesis Flood Series had NO REGARD FOR THEIR AMAZING CREATOR.

  • We will see the planet earth flourishing with life.
  • We will see this globe teeming with plant, animal and human population explosions.
  • And all the time Evil was INTENSIFYING.
  • Simply stated, a life with no time for God soon loses all respect, regard and acknowledgment of their Creator.

Would you join me at the Creation week? It was quite a world God made! Open with me to Genesis 1 again.

God Created The Land That Flourished With Plants v. 9-13

The power of growth in plants is astounding! A sunflower will produce 4,000 seeds from one seed planted. A kernel of corn can do better than that. If every kernel produced by one seed were planted again at the end of the harvest and again at the end of the second year, all of the USA could be planted with the 3rd years crop. That is today. What about then?

Did you even wonder what kind of plants the dinosaurs tromped around on? The answer may surprise you. These unfamiliar animals, now extinct, wandered around among some very familiar plants: oak, willow, magnolia, sassafras, palms, and other such common flowering plants.

In Lincoln County, Wyoming, almost perfect specimens of fish, turtles, insects, and mammals have been found together with huge palm leaves, from 6 to 8 feet in length and from 3 to 4 feet wide. Even more significantly, trillions of tons of vegetation much of it perfectly preserved, even to leaves and flowers, have been buried in all parts of the world, including Antarctica in the form of coal. Each foot of coal represents many feet of compressed plant remains, and some coal seams are as much as thirty or forty feet in thickness. Obviously, no such process of coal formation is going on today, and the so-called "peat-bog theory" is a poor attempt to cope with this problem.   

Scientists have found tropical forests and coal deposits in Antarctica. They have discovered ninety-foot Plum trees which were quick frozen and over ninety feet in height with green leaves in the New Siberian Islands where, today, only one-inch high willows grow.

Oil prospectors, drilling through Alaskan muck, have "brought up an 18-inch long chunk of tree trunk from almost 1,000 feet below the surface. It wasn't petrified--just frozen." The nearest forests are hundreds of miles away. Williams describes similar discoveries in Alaska:

Though the ground is frozen for 1,900 feet down from the surface at Prudhoe Bay, everywhere the oil companies drilled around this area they discovered an ancient tropical forest. It was in frozen state, not in petrified state. It is between 1,100 and 1,700 feet down. There are palm trees, pine trees, and tropical foliage in great profusion. In fact, they found them lapped all over each other, just as though they had fallen in that position.
