Motivational Speech

"The Evolution Fable"

This motivational speech was written and presented at a Toastmasters meeting by me. Evolution is something I am passionately opposed to as I believe in divine creation by a supreme God.

I wanted to really challenge those that are atheists or evolutionists in the group and bring up some real emotions in them, hence the speech may have been a little “piercing.” But it is my belief that we should tell the truth, according to God’s word at all times without fearing that we would offend people.

You will find the full motivational speech collection here.


Motivational Speech -Introduction
Ladies and gentlemen, what I have here is a can of coke. Let me tell you an amazing story about how this can of coke came to be. Billions of years ago, a big bang produced a large rock. As the rock cooled, sweet brown liquid formed on its surface.

As time passed, aluminium formed itself into a can, a lid, and a tab. Millions of years later, red and white paint fell from the sky, and formed itself into the words "Coca Cola" on the surface of the can. That is how come we are able to enjoy a can of coke today.

Of course, my story is an insult to your intellect, because you know how the Coca Cola can is made, and you also know that somebody is responsible for making it. Furthermore someone had to design it before it could be made.

So why do the so-called scientists of our time want to insult our intelligence in the same way I just did with this can of coca cola, by telling us that we are nothing more than a product of evolution? Evolution is defined as “A gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex or better form.” It is in essence, nothing more than the coca cola theory I have just told you, all you have to do is replace the can of coke with... yourself.

Motivational Speech - Why would anyone WANT to believe in evolution?
Which begs the question – why would anyone want to believe in this “grown-up fairytale” as one prominent scientist put it?

There are three possible answers to this:

a. They are very intelligent
b. They have an ulterior motive for denying the obvious
c. They are fools

Well before I answer that let me tell you what some people have said concerning the subject of intelligent design:

George Gallup, the famous statistician, said:
"I could prove God statistically; take the human body alone; the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen, is a statistical monstrosity."

Albert Einstein said:
"Everyone who is seriously interested in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe; a spirit vastly superior to man, and one in the face of which our modest powers must feel humble."

Motivational Speech - A question of intelligence?
So, back to the answer to our quiz: The first answer – that they are very intelligent is wrong, although that is what they would like you to believe. After all, the scientists say, they have spent a lifetime studying the subject and are still only beginning to understand its awesome power. How could you, a mere mortal, understand such a complex subject?

Motivational Speech - Ulterior motives?
They second choice, that they have an ulterior motive for denying the obvious, which is that God exists and that he designed and created everything, is correct.

Why would anyone want to deny God’s existence? Simple – no designer = no God = no right and wrong = I can do whatever I want and be answerable to nobody.

Motivational Speech - Are they fools?
Which brings me to the second correct answer to the quiz – the other reason people want to believe this fairytale is that they are fools. Now, before you go about calling for my head on a platter for saying that I want to make it absolutely clear that I did not say that... someone far superior to me did...his name is...God:

In the Psalms he says:
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.
PSALMS XIV:I

By the way this fits in very well with the dictionary definition of a fool as “One who is deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding.”

Motivational Speech - Evolution and atheism
Believing in evolution fits very well in this definition and is essentially a form of Atheism, a belief system that passionately denies the existence of God. God calls the atheist a FOOL.

Sort of like the ostrich, when confronted with facts the atheist and evolutionist would rather burry their head in the sand and say:

"There's nobody there,
there's nobody there,
there's nobody there, I tell you!
See, I can't see 'em!"

The atheist will tell you fabulous fairy tales like:

you were spontaneously generated from a rock,
a monkey is your daddy,
a fish is your cousin,
you have no hope,
you should just live for today,
when you're dead, you're dead.

But ultimately, somewhere in the back of their minds and in their hearts they know that there is someone out there, no matter how much they try to deny it.

Motivational Speech - A challenge to evolutionists
Finally as I close, I would like to say to you all, just in case I have offended anyone, that you have a very good opportunity to convince us of evolution and all it entails and at the same time make yourself a wealthy person.

How? Simple, Dr. Kent Hovind, an authority in the field, is offering a $250,000 reward "to anyone who can offer any scientific proof for evolution." His offer has been standing for more than 10 years and no one has sown up to claim it, but if you have the proof... why not give it a go?

No I know you may be saying...”well, you can’t prove that God exists either!” But...I can. The proof of God’s existence is in his creation. He is manifested through his creation.

God’s word says “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

No one has any excuse to deny God’s existence. All you have to do to know God exists is to look at the marvellous and wonderful creation who is seated next to you.
