Long Age: Misinterpretation of Evidence

Charles Lyell, an early Long Age advocate

Evolutionists allege a long age for the earth because their model depends on it. They justify it only by misinterpreting and misconstruing both historical fact and natural observation. In fact, that is the history of how Darwinism became current and “credible.”

Creation: important to Christians

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

The Bible begins with creation. Yet most churches today, and even most Bible-believing churches, don’t want to talk about creation. They’re making a mistake. Bible-believing Christians should talk about creation, to strengthen their own faith and to be better witnesses to God’s sovereign – and awesome – power.

Sweet talking guys

Lucas Cranach - Antichrist, the ultimate sweet-talking guy

Every once in a while there is profound advice in a popular song. Back in the 1960s, the Chiffons had a hit song entitled, “Sweet Talking Guy.” It began like this:

Young earth v. old earth

This morning, another type of creation advocate sent me a message at the domain of the Creation Science Hall of Fame. Some advocates choose not to dispute the conventional wisdom that the earth is old. However old the earth might be, they say, is still not long enough for evolution to take place unless God guided it. Opposed to this “old earth” view is the “young earth” view: that the earth is not nearly so old as conventional scientists insist.

C. S. Lewis questioned evolution

C. Sl Lewis in scupture

C. S. Lewis was not always a Christian. He was still an atheist when, in 1925, he first questioned evolution. He knew its claims, from unguided selection through the development of man, strained logic. He would make his final break when he realized how dogmatic and even totalitarian evolutionists can be.

Asteroid makes case for hydroplate theory

The asteroid belt and the Trojan asteroids of Jupiter

The near-earth asteroid 2012 DA14 makes the case for the Hydroplate Theory of the Global Flood, for a simple reason. No asteroid, if it formed in a belt between Mars and Jupiter, should fly so close to earth. Not unless it came from earth to begin with.

Mercury ice should have blown away in meteor showers

The Mercury ice is found where the sun never shines on Mercury

The Mercury ice excites everyone who hears about it. After all, people forget that even Mercury has areas of endless shadow cold enough to hold ice. But they smugly assume that the ice would sublimate slowly, if at all, even over billions of years. If the ice rested quietly, and nothing disturbed it, then it would stay, even that long. But it does not rest quietly. Meteors of all sizes bombard it all the time. In millions of years, and certainly billions, those meteors would have blown the ice away.

Mercury ice must have come from earth

Almost everyone agrees that comets and water-rich asteroids delivered lots of ice to Mercury. But the Mercury ice must have come from Earth. It cannot have come from anywhere else.

Science and the Bible – Part 3

Isaiah, ancient prophet--and man of science?

In parts one and two of this series, I discussed the extraordinary biblical references to revelations of science. They included references to the earth being spherical, thermodynamics, water springs in the ocean, recesses of the deep and the morning stars singing. These references are truly extraordinary when one considers that they were made from 300 years to over 4000 years before they were discovered by modern men of science. More extraordinary still, these references mark only a small percentage of the scientific statements the Bible makes.

Panspermia? Really?

Tagish Lake meteorite, incorrectly cited as evidence for panspermia

Panspermia — the idea that life is seeding itself everywhere in the universe — is suddenly popular again. The finding of the “stuff of life” in meteorites has made it popular. But panspermia assumes that those meteorites came from space and merely fell to earth.
