Genesis 1:27
God created man in his image. In the image of God he created him.
Male and female he created them.

“All the biological groups, from bacteria and blue-green algae to man, appear abruptly in the fossil record without any links connecting them with each other.

“Evolution is presented to grown-ups and taught to the very young as a fact that has been verified and demonstrated for so long that it is a waste of time and even ridiculous to question it.

“The fact is that after nearly two centuries of intense research the paleontological evidence for evolutionary theory is not only rare but highly questionable. The point is that if evolution had really happened the evidence would be in great abundance and incontestable. The museums would be overflowing with fossils clearly documenting the transitions between the various biological groups, yet there are none. Moreover, there is no indication that the situation will change in the future.

“The idea of gradual evolution of man from such creatures as australopithecine apes is totally without foundation and should be firmly rejected. Man is not the most recent link in a long chain of evolution. He represents a type, or taxon, which has existed without any substantial change since his first appearance.”

                                                                   – Professor Roberto Fondi, Paleontologist

.

“Since the same main types of creatures and plants alive today were living in the past, it is quite clear that the same complex mechanism of life has existed from the very beginning. To the geneticist this is very obvious proof that bio-chemical evolution has never taken place.

“What we can say, from observing the human chromosomes or the human DNA and comparing it to that of other species is that man is original; man is not derived from any other species. So the statement that man is a recent creature coming from some primitive form cannot be supported by genetic data at all.”

                                                   – Professor Giuseppe Sermonti, Molecular Biologist

Wisdom 13:1-9
For all men were by nature foolish who were in ignorance of God, and who from the good things seen did not succeed in knowing him who is, and from studying the works did not discern the artisan; but either fire, or wind, or the swift air, or the circuit of the stars, or the mighty water, or the luminaries of heaven, the governors of the world, they considered gods. Now if out of joy in their beauty they thought them gods, let them know how far more excellent is the Lord than these; for the original source of beauty fashioned them. Or if they were struck by their might and energy, let them from these things realize how much more powerful is he who made them. For from the greatness and the beauty of created things their original author, by analogy, is seen. But yet, for these the blame is less; for they indeed have gone astray perhaps, though they seek God and wish to find him. For they search busily among his works, but are distracted by what they see, because the things seen are fair. But again, not even these are pardonable. For if they so far succeeded in knowledge that they could speculate about the world, how did they not more quickly find its Lord?

If I were the devil I wouldn’t be happy until I’d seized the ripest apple on the tree: thee. So I’d set about how it were necessary to take over the United States.
I’d subvert the churches first, I’d begin with a campaign of whispers.
With the wisdom of a serpent I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve:
do as you please. To the young I would whisper that the Bible is a myth,
I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around;
I would confide that what’s bad is good and what’s good is.. square.
And the old I would teach to pray after me: Our Father, which art in Washington.. And then I’d get organized; I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting, I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice versa, I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.
If I were the devil I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves, and nations at war with themselves until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames. If I were the devil I’d encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions, just let those run wild, until before you knew it you’d have to have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door. Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography, soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse,  and then from the houses of Congress, and in  his own churches I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science.
I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.  If I were the devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who want it until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And what’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich. I would caution against extremes, in hard work, in patriotism, in moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on TV is the way to be, and thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words,
if I were the devil I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.
