Answering Pope Francis

Pope Francis kept alive the main tradition of the Roman Catholic Church: compromise. Specifically he offered the familiar compromise between creation and evolution. But what he said will likely please no one. It certainly does not contribute either to good origins science or to good Biblical scholarship. Continue reading

Answering Michael Gungor

Michael Gungor answered his critics yesterday. In Relevant magazine he pleaded for unity of the Church. He also denounced those who called him apostate, blasphemer, heretic, false teacher, etc. over his belief in evolution. But in so denouncing, he left out the most inflammatory words he earlier used. And he failed to address the heart of the matter. He failed to address the sad and sore mistakes he makes in reading the first eleven chapters of Genesis. Continue reading

Creation ex nihilo – light

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

This verse is also scientifically profound and yet astonishingly simple. It begs the question: what came first? Sound waves or radiation waves? We know that waves transfer energy from one place to another.i Sound waves do this as well as radiation waves. The primary difference between the two is that light is polarized and travels transversely, and in most cases sound is not polarized and travels longitudinally.ii Continue reading

Creation ex nihilo – waters

GENESIS 1:2

…and darkness was on the face of the deep…

Verse 2 goes on to say, “and darkness was on the face of the deep.” This was the primordial state either before God intervened or immediately after He intervened. It is possible that His presence alone created the physical conditions we are about to describe and it is also possible that this was the environment that existed prior to His presence on the scene. The assumption being made in this writing is that verse 2 is telling us about the environment that existed when God intervened. If you are an Evolutionist, this is the state that would have existed prior to the Big Bang. It should be noted that the Big Bang, which really is a misnomer since the theory is about expansion and not explosion, occurs on Day Two and will be discussed subsequently in another work – God willing.

Precambrian late embryos?

A Chinese-American team may have discovered, if not a “Precambrian rabbit,” the next best thing: Precambrian embryonic fossils showing the kind of development only multicellular organisms show. The team leaders do not know whether they found an early plant or animal. But their find, if it holds, threatens to shake the foundations of biological evolution. Continue reading

Creation ex nihilo – intro

Since Darwin first wrote On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured (sic) Races in the Struggle for Life (which title was shortened in the 1872 second edition to “The Origin of Species”), the hypothesis of Evolution has had an impact on the educated world. By strongly suggesting that the biblical account of Creation is nothing more than a myth for the uneducated and weak-minded, Evolution has indirectly served as the subliminal evangelist for atheism and agnosticism. Continue reading

Nameless on Noah’s Ark

My humble apologies for not posting any articles for the past 7 months. The reason is that from February to July I was doing a 4th edit to a book called ‘Mother of The Middle East’ and then this past month (August 2014) I was in charge of 2 separate Creation Science booths at 2 separate Fairs [which I plan to write about in a separate article]. Continue reading

Firmament: what was it?

The only reasons the vapor canopy theory got any traction, were the many references to something like it in ancient tales of creation. Isaac Newton Vail tried to sell it to Christians the same way. Specifically he tried to make his vapor canopy sound like the “firmament” in Genesis chapter 1. (Or rather, one of the firmaments; more on that below.) But as Walter T. Brown and Bob Enyart separately say, Vail got it wrong. Because someone else, who should have known better, translated it wrong. Continue reading

Michael Gungor: Jesus lied

Again a popular “Christian celebrity” said something outrageous about the Bible and the Christian belief system. Michael Gungor, contemporary Christian music artist, actually says the first eleven chapters of Genesis are poetry, not true narrative. But yesterday a prominent Creation apologist talked back to him. Continue reading
