Dinosaurs, aliens, and the Flood

Two hundred years ago, modern humans rediscovered a class of animals that dwarfed all other animals they knew. Those who found their remains, called these animals dinosaurs – literally, terrible lizards. Conventional origins scientists believe a single event, 65 million years ago, extinguished the dinosaurs forever. They also believe this happened long before humankind appeared on earth.

Evolution doesn’t make you smart

So Rafi Letzter, writing in Business Insider, wonders “why so many smart people don’t believe in evolution.” He rightly questions a study suggesting if you’re smart, you should believe in evolution. But he then fails to follow through with what his own analysis suggests. Continue reading

Appeal to whose authority?

Christendom, and the world generally, face a crisis. People must now decide whose authority will govern their thinking. This applies equally to how they live to how they think they came to be. And not only they but all of life, this Earth, and our universe. Continue reading

Pre-Flood Earth: how it lay

How did the earth change with the Global Flood? Obviously the Flood itself left many layers of sediment. These persist as the “geological column.” But the earth also rolled on its axis a few centuries after the Flood. That roll explains much about the kinds of fossils we see at certain latitudes. It also gives rise to new insights in the debate on global warming: whether it is happening, how fast, and whether it has happened before. Continue reading

Fish tales of freedom

“Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you.” This is one of the promises found within Scripture, and the awe-striking thing about God’s Word is that Nature itself conveys these simple promises and the advantages of them!

Lets look at the life of the saltwater fish: The Pilot Fish in comparison to the advantages of Drawing Nigh to our powerful Creator God! Continue reading

Creator of space and time

As people of faith reflect on the miracle of the Christ child and His resurrection, churches can expect unusually high attendance on Christmas and Easter. However, there are an increasing number of those that believe science has disproved the existence of God, particularly as Creator. They therefore believe those that rely on His precepts and principles are intellectually deficient. Since the increase of this atheistic belief system is directly proportional to the decrease in the quality of life we enjoy here in America, the scientific argument regarding the existence of God is as important a cultural issue as it is a faith issue.

Glen Kuban wrong on Walt Brown

Glen J. Kuban, almost twenty years ago, took exception to the finding of human and dinosaur tracks, side by side, near the Paluxy River. He has tried several times in those almost twenty years to cast doubt on that claim. Six years ago he found a new target: Walter T. Brown, author of the Hydroplate Theory of the Global Flood. (See In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood, in hardcover and online here.) He published a rebuttal to the theory, and last edited this two days ago (1 September 2015). But his revisions won’t help him. He might have read the book. But he never once examines critically the conventional theories of the origins and history of the earth. And so he falls into a common logical trap. And he never escapes it. Continue reading

Carbon monoxide on Pluto

The rocket probe New Horizons sent back more pictures from the Pluto system. On Friday (17 July 2015) NASA released some of them. Among them: a frozen lake of carbon monoxide. This lake covers most of the western lobe of Tombaugh Regio (the “heart” on Pluto). Continue reading

Pluto younger than expected

The New Horizons spacecraft sent back the first of many photographs it took as it flew through the Pluto-Charon system. (See this article by Amanda Barnett at CNN.) These photographs present yet another problem for uniformitarian astronomers. Pluto and Charon both have surface features (or in one case the lack of surface features) that suggest youth, not great age, for these bodies. Conventional astronomers will no doubt insist on considering Pluto and Charon about 4.56 billion years ancient. If so, they must explain mountains with sharp features, and (on Charon) relatively few impact craters. Continue reading

Pluto: accidental creation

In about two and one-half days (14 July 2015, 11:50 UTC), a ship named New Horizons will pass close to the dwarf planet Pluto. It has approached Pluto for six months, after a voyage of nine and a half years. And already it has found, or confirmed, evidence of the true nature, and origin, of Pluto. We must regard Pluto as a recent creation. And an accidental one. A product of the most violent event the earth has ever known, the one event worthy of the name cataclysm. Continue reading
