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

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

Counterpoint to evolution: the Big Bang

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, site 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. Continue reading

Counterpoint to evolution, part 6

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.

Origins: to be or not to be

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Luke 21:33

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

Counterpoint to evolution, part 5

This commentary on the Biology textbook published by Pearson/Prentice Hall and written by Miller and Levine will continue with an analysis of the “evidences” for evolution that the book presents. The key counterpoint: the “evidences” consist of rock formations and fossils. And these are much younger than supposed. Continue reading

Counterpoint to evolution, part 3

As discussed in Parts 1 and 2 of this series, I will be reviewing the most popular biology textbook in America, Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2006, Biology, written by Kenneth R. Miller and Joseph S. Levine. I am doing so to offer a “counterpoint” to their interpretation of origins, which has been cleverly designed by the authors to mislead students through psychological manipulations, tortured interpretations of the facts, and downright lies. It is my hope that this work will serve as an instrument for parents and church leaders in defending the biblical account of origins that is being assaulted in academia and used as a tool to tear down the students’ trust in the Word of God – and subsequently to challenge their faith in the existence of God Himself.
