Discover Creation with AOI
Welcome to Alpha Omega Institute’s new website! We’re glad you took the time to check us out. We are unashamedly Biblical in presenting our views, yet we are seriously dedicated to presenting scientific and historical evidence to back up these views.
If you are a Christian, we believe you will find lots of evidence on this site to affirm your faith. If you are a searcher or a skeptic (like some of our staff used to be) we welcome you! We hope you will explore the evidence with an open mind, consider how you came to your current beliefs, and seriously contemplate how your view of origins impacts your life and destiny.
Welcome to the journey!
Mary Jo & I are currently leading a geology field trip of the Southwest for Jackson Hole Bible College. Besides seeing a lot of rock layers and formations (love that Flood Geology), they have gotten to see quite a few petroglyphs. One of those we saw looks interestingly like a bi-pedal dinosaur (image to the left). In another spot, we saw a petroglyph that looked like a sauropod dinosaur (the first is an actual photograph and the second is the photographically enhanced version). With so many dinosaur images found on rocks, fashioned in or painted on clay, etched in metal, and depicted in ancient mosaics, it is hard to believe that dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years before people came on the scene. (See articles from our Think & Believe Newsletter.) It would appear those millions of years really didn’t exist. By Dave Nutting...Read More
“I remember learning about the Oort Cloud in college and accepted it as it was taught to me…as a proven fact. I had no reason to doubt it. Much later, I was shocked to learn that that fact was based on no evidence. The Oort Cloud ‘has to exist’ only to make the billions of years of cosmology possible.” -Brian Mariani, AOI Speaker “Consider this quote from Sagan and Druyan: ‘Many scientific papers are written each year about the Oort Cloud, its properties, its origin, its evolution. Yet there is not yet a shred of direct observational evidence for its existence.’” “This raises a very important question as to the scientific status of the Oort cloud. Can something that cannot be observed, even indirectly as in the case of subatomic phenomenon, be classed as scientific? While the Oort cloud is often referred to as a theory, given the usual definition of a theory and the impossibility of observation, can the Oort cloud be termed a theory? Indeed, given that it is doubtful that this idea can ever be tested, one has to question whether the Oort cloud is even an hypothesis.” From Danny Faulkner, Comets and the Age of the Solar System, December 1, 1997, http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/tj/v11/n3/comets.
