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.

His two parameters grew to 10 and then 20 and then 50…As factors continued to be discovered, the number of possible planets [that could support life] hit zero, and kept going. In other words, the odds turned against any planet in the universe supporting life, including this one. Probability said that even we shouldn’t be here. Today there are more than 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life—every single one of which must be perfectly met, or the whole thing falls apart. Without a massive planet like Jupiter nearby, whose gravity will draw away asteroids, a thousand times as many would hit Earth’s surface. The odds against life in the universe are simply astonishing… …Oxford professor Dr. John Lennox has said “the more we get to know about our universe, the more the hypothesis that there is a Creator . . . gains in credibility as the best explanation of why we are here.” To read the full article, go to:...Read More
