God, nature, or dice?

Man, the greatest achievement of God

Any time people discuss the Creation account in the Bible, those taking part have to decide. What, in essence, will they believe in? Who, or what, created the universe, the earth, and life, including human life? Did God create something perfect, as the Bible says? Did nature, having a God-like (or Goddess-like) power, create itself (herself)? Or did everything come from a roll of dice in a cosmic game of chance?

Criminals don’t ask for permission

Common Core puts a worm into this apple.

Over the past 14 years, in the course of doing more than 350 public high-school presentations across the country in 24 states, my ministry team and I have (without fail) fought on the behalf of a generation that is being subjected to everything and protected from nothing.

Gravitational waves – what they mean

Life before earth in context

Two days ago, John Kovacs, of the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, claimed a momentous discovery. He said he had seen “direct evidence of cosmic inflation,” according to Mike Wall at Space.com. The New York Times picked up the story almost at once. So did Nature, to whom Kovacs has already submitted several papers. (See their announcement here.) Specifically, Kovacs says he and his team saw gravitational waves left over from the first moments of time after the Big Bang.

Ark Encounter revived. Thanks, Bill Nye!

The Bill Nye-Ken Ham debate had a side effect Bill Nye did not look for. Ken Ham secured the last funding he needed for his Ark Encounter project. And Ken Ham credits his debate with Bill Nye with that success.

Old and confused

The Geneva Bible. Are we in a silent war against what this book represents?

As I travel the road of life, I find it very interesting how men who lived so long ago and experienced so much of life were able to see what was coming in the future, not to mention what they saw in their own day. Aristotle could not have hit the nail on the head any closer than this:

Quest for Commonality: Abrahamic faiths

Abraham leaving home

The Adult Catholic Education program, held recently at a local Catholic parish hall, was entitled, “Under Abraham’s Tent: Jews, Christians, and Muslims in the World Today.”  The evening, designed to “foster peaceful relationships” of three religions through their shared patriarch, Abraham, attracted about 200 guests.

Evolution and creation in NJ District 12

Alieta Eck makes evolution and creation a campaign issue

The debate between creation and evolution became explicitly political last night. An incumbent Representative set that stage last month. He introduced, for the second time, a resolution to make Charles Darwin’s birthday a federal holiday. Last night his announced Republican opponent condemned him for it. And she did so on explicitly philosophical grounds. To wit: evolution, as a philosophy, causes greater social harm than does creation.

Silent war on religion

The Bible. Handbook of leadership

Governor Bobby Jindal (R-La.) spoke yesterday at the Reagan Library. His subject: a “silent war against religious liberty.” No one can reasonably dispute that. Obama administration policies and leftist politics both treat religion as the enemy of the people. Honest observers might dispute only one thing: whether the silent war is really silent.

Sharing the gospel with ‘rock stars’

Elvis Presley, a rock star who was not happy.

Elvis Presley is one of the original rock ‘n’ roll stars. He made millions in show business. While being interviewed on the air, he was asked, “Mr. Presley, how do you account for the happy, joyous expression you always seem to have on your face?” Elvis answered, “Because I have to in order to make a living. Inside I’m as lonely as hell.”

Bill Nye, Ken Ham: Walt Brown speaks

Blake's Image of Creation should be a warning to fools who deny God

Since the close of the Bill Nye v. Ken Ham debate two nights ago (February 4, 2014: 9:30 p.m.), many creation advocates, besides Answers in Genesis, have spoken out about it. Yesterday your correspondent conversed by telephone with Walt Brown, one of the lesser known scientific talents in creation science.
