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.

Bill Nye, Ken Ham debate: double default

Bill Nye orating

Two nights ago (February 4, 2014), Bill Nye (“the Science Guy”) and Ken Ham, director of Answers in Genesis, held their debate. The subject should have been easy to defend. Instead, neither side scored a clear victory. In fact, by any objective standard, the outcome was a double default.

Fools no longer conscious of shame

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

Wisdom will not long hold a seat in the head of that man who yielded up his heart to folly.

– Charles H. Spurgeon

Recently we found that a group of climate-change scientists were stranded in the ice while on a “climate change” research expedition. We know that they did not want the American people to catch on to their folly; regardless, it was brought to the light for all to see and hear.

We are all Little Sisters

Remember Martin Niemöller during the Little Sisters of the Poor case.

The Department of Justice is doing its best to strong-arm a group of service-minded nuns to comply with Obamacare rules and regulations that conflict with their faith. The Little Sisters of the Poor have refused either of the options available to them in Obamacare that could make this problem go away. They include dropping their group health insurance and paying the Obamacare taxes or applying for the “accommodation” that exempts them for religious reasons. The options seem simple enough, but the consequences have not eluded the Little Sisters.
