A 144-year-old piece of microfilm shows how Biblical Creation in Genesis
would be rewritten, and replaced, if 19th century Darwinian
evolutionists had their way at the time.
The microfilm is so
small, that it requires a laboratory microscope to read it. "It is about
the size of a single snowflake," says Frank DeFreitas, a retired laser
DeFreitas is a collector of microscopic and nano-scale Biblical scripture and art. He lives in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
microfilm was acquired by DeFreitas through a microscopical broker
located in the United Kingdom. The U.K. is the 19th century birthplace
of Charles Darwin, father of the theory of evolution.
termed microphotography, it was developed in the United Kingdom by
microscopist John Benjamin Dancer in the mid- 1800s. It was the highest
level of imaging science and technology of its day. It would eventually
lead to 20th century micro computer circuits that would send satellites
into space, and take mankind to the moon and beyond.
says that he believes that it was used by its maker, a Mr. Edward
Wheeler, as a curiosity during his lecture circuit. "Wheeler was a very
successful manufacturer of high-end brass microscopes in the 19th
century. His passion was lecturing, and he was very well known in
England at the time."
Evolution was a hot topic during the time
period of the microfilm. Especially well-attended debates between
evolutionists and Biblical Creationists.
"I am a Biblical
Creationist according to the exact record of the first book of Moses,
Genesis." says DeFreitas categorically. "I believe that this piece of
microfilm provides hard, indisputable physical evidence of an intention
to undermine the creation account of the Holy Bible ... or why would it
have ever been written in the first place?"
February 12, 2019 will be celebrated as Charles Darwin Day around the world.
DeFreitas has created a McAfee secure Genesis-Darwin Microfilm Web Page that contains photos taken through his microscope, and a full transcription of the microfilm content.
