Abiogenesis: not so fast

Evolutionists, since Darwin, have based their assumption of a God-less origin of life on abiogenesis. That is, they hold life began from non-life. Now a professor of physics thinks he can show, not exactly how that happened, but that the universe bound it to happen. Even some of his fellow secular scientists find that hard to believe. But even they won’t ask themselves an obvious question he missed. Continue reading

Comet 67P explodes convention

In November of 2014, the European Space Agency achieved a milestone in planetary science. They successfully landed a craft of man on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. That alone set the world buzzing, as well it might. The landing craft landed nearly in shadow, and had to “hibernate” shortly afterward. But not before sending back a wealth of pictures and other data. In any other context, the scientists involved would have no reservations on their pride. Why then, this time, did those scientists withhold some of their findings for weeks, if not months? Because those findings did something scientists say they appreciate, but don’t. They surprised them. And in surprising them, they vexed them. Because those scientists cannot explain those findings. Continue reading

‘Dinosaur eggs’ on Comet 67P

No, the European Space Agency’s Philae lander did not find literal dinosaur eggs on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The experts at the imaging team for Philae’s high-resolution OSIRIS camera gave that name to what they did find. These large, rounded boulders, one to three meters across, cover the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Those experts, according to Eric Hand, journalist for Science, call these the building blocks of comets. They probably speak correctly. But they might not know a certain creation scientist said thirteen years ago astronomers would find such rounded boulders on comets. Continue reading

Post-Flood Ice Age: a model

Last year Dr. Larry Vardiman showed several major storms would have been much stronger soon after the Global Flood. They would have showered the Middle East with much more rain, and North America with much more snow. This precipitation, and the higher winds that would have prevailed, would explain the great Ice Age. Larry Vardiman made only one error: he assumed his favorite Global Flood model would have released the right amount of heat. Continue reading

Evolution’s liberal defenders

Evolution has its defenders. Atheists obviously defend and propound evolution. They wield the “Trident” (uniformitarianism, abiogenesis, and common descent) to skewer Christianity and promote their view of the universe as a giant roulette wheel. Or so they think. But evolution has another class of defenders worse than these. Nominal Christians (and some nominal Jews, also) seek somehow to “reconcile” evolution with what Scripture (literally, what is Written) says about God’s Creative act, and His policies that followed. Continue reading

We created a scene in 2014

The year 2014 saw great strides in understanding how God created the world, and how the Global Flood created confusion as well as judgment. This year also saw controversies that moved the creation debate out of obscurity and even caught mainstream press attention. Continue reading
