Welcome to the Discover Creation Blog. Among other things, this is where you’ll find updates from our speakers, interesting reading, and more.
Before I begin, I have a quick prayer request. AOI speakers have many camps and VBS’ coming up, so please pray for us and for those who will be attending! Now back to the story… When I am doing a VBS or a camp, I like to start out the week with the following scenario: I tell the students that I am an alien. I have just arrived and I am on a scientific mission to study the human beings on Earth. Let the investigation begin! So I ask one of the campers –...Read More

Presently the other deer, that I had seen earlier,...Read More
As Sue and I traveled through Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon on a creation tour, we witnessed a number of different terrains and geologic features that speak of a catastrophic past. In Utah, we drove through what used to be ancient Lake Bonneville, which eventually drained causing a catastrophic flood which would carve the Snake River Canyon. The mountains of northern Idaho were a beautiful sight created by the world changing Flood in the days of Noah. As we...Read More
