Welcome to the Discover Creation Blog. Among other things, this is where you’ll find updates from our speakers, interesting reading, and more.
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...Read More
Creation Answer: God created man on day 6 and man was originally very intelligent and even walked with God. Man did not evolve from lower forms of human and was not a dumb caveman. At the time of creation, God originally made man and apes as two different kinds. “There are many differences between humans and apes that can be seen in fossil remains. These include the fact that humans walk erect and so have appropriate/distinctive knee and hip joints, backbone, toes, etc....Read More
Introduction: Were our early ancestors ape-like creatures, or fully-formed human beings? Did we evolve from intelligently created humans or dumb cavemen? Why do many people think humans evolved from animals? What are the human transitions that indicate this? What are the characteristics people consider to be “human”? Naturalistic/Evolutionary Answer: Modern humans have evolved from previous less-evolved forms in East Africa “nearly 200,000 years ago in association...Read More
Creationists do admit that radioactive decay has occurred, but “it is important to understand the simple, fundamental principle behind all dating methods, and why they are not able to produce objective, absolute dates…The fatal flaw is that all scientific measurements are made in the present, whereas a date relates to a time in the past. We cannot go back into the past to measure all the parameters we need in order to do the dating calculation. Hence, all these...Read More
Introduction: Radioactive elements are primarily heavier elements on the periodic scale with unstable atoms, usually because they are so big, and consequently the nucleus breaks down and loses energy, forming smaller atoms and particles and resulting in a more stable element. This process is sometimes described as going from a parent isotope (beginning element) to a daughter isotope (ending element). Radiometric Dating methods are absolute methods in determining...Read More
