“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
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 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
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
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
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
This final article in the Counterpoint series will deviate from presenting arguments against what has been published in Pearson/Hall’s Biology textbook and will instead present a few very basic arguments that support the biblical creation account. Before proceeding, it is responsible to state that the counterpoint arguments against what is presented in the textbooks are not represented as being comprehensive. In order to achieve that nearly unachievable goal would require a substantial format capable of expanding ad infinitum, since new evolutionary arguments that are not bound by logic are being invented at an inconceivable rate. It is also necessary to state that the Precambrian explosion of life, as well as the RATE project that were discussed in previous parts of this series, as well as many others (such as thermodynamics) not discussed also provide strong support for the creation argument.

Astronomers and astrophysicists are revealing, with increasing frequency, the compatibility of the Torah with the most recent discoveries in science. A recent scientific article in one of the foremost international journals of physics bears the title, “Creation of the Universe from Nothing”: Continue reading
As this series is nearing a conclusion, I would be remiss if I didn’t include the “support for evolution” that our children are led to believe is scientifically credible. This article will not continue with counterpoints for the popular Biology textbook published by Pearson/Prentice Hall, but will present counterpoint arguments for the ancillary information our students are directed to on the internet and outside of the textbook. The future and final part of this series will then deal with the most significant proofs for the biblical account of creation. Whether it be the so-called proofs for evolution or the counterpoint proofs for the biblical account, please be aware that only a selected few that are representative of the rest will be discussed, and to respect this format, I will do my best to keep the narrative brief.

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
The theory of the Big Bang seemed to win majority acceptance upon its origination. But the more scientific evidence frowned upon the hypothesis, the more scientists began to realize chemical evolution and cosmic evolution were very very difficult to explain with this theory. Continue reading
