Opposing Views of God and Reality   

Posted on Aug 31, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  The Christian says: “Atheists don’t want reality to be that there is a God that they are accountable to.” The Atheist says: “Christians want reality to be that there is a God who loves and cares for them and who bring meaning and purpose to life.” Who’s view is correct? By Brian Mariani

Are You a Neanderthal???

Posted on Aug 24, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  Neanderthals are “characterized by prominent eyebrow ridges (like modern Australian aborigines), low forehead, long narrow skull, a protruding upper jaw, and a strong lower jaw with a short chin. They were deep-chested, large-boned individuals with a powerful build. It should be emphasized, however, that none of these features fall outside the range of normal human anatomy.” “If he (Neandertal man) could be reincarnated and placed in a New York subway...

From Single to Many – Why? How?

Posted on Aug 17, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “Evolution faces a tough dichotomy to get around if multicellularity is to evolve: cellular selection vs organismal integrity. At the single cell level, selection will favour cells that reproduce better. But if those cells are allowed to reproduce uncontrollably in a multicellular organism, they will inexorably destroy organismal integrity, and harm or kill the organism, also causing the ‘fitter’ cells to die. …” “However, this leads to a mystery for the...

Science is Faith-based

Posted on Aug 10, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “According to this biblical definition, science itself is a faith-based system, for it is a system often governed by “the evidence of things not seen.” Indeed, this is an essential modus operandi in science. Without ever having directly observed them, science believes in many concepts and systems at the subatomic, the super-galactic, and even the macroscopic natural level of life. Black holes, certain astronomical objects, the chemical composition of celestial...

Are “Multiverses” a Good Explanation?

Posted on Jul 13, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “Multiverses supposedly explain the existence of [our universe] with special characteristics. But this is really special pleading, i.e. an explanation these atheists accept for the universe but would not tolerate for a second to explain anything else. Consider if we found a pattern of markings on a beach which spelled your name. Naturally you would conclude that an intelligent agent had written it. This is more plausible than thinking that wind and wave erosion...

Evidence Against the Big Bang?

Posted on Jul 6, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “Don’t we read, even in the daily newspapers, about many ‘observations’ that only ever seem to support the big bang? In fact, these prominent secular scientists say: ‘Even observations are now interpreted through this biased filter, judged right or wrong depending on whether or not they support the big bang. So discordant data on red shifts, lithium and helium abundances, and galaxy distribution, among other topics, are ignored or ridiculed.’” “As these big-bang...

Doesn’t Every Scientist Accept the Big Bang Theory?

Posted on Jun 29, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “Those who urge Christians to accept the big bang as a ‘science fact’ point to its near-universal acceptance by the scientific community. However, [33 top secular scientists who oppose the big bang theory] describe a situation familiar to many creationist scientists: ‘An open exchange of ideas is lacking in most mainstream conferences … doubt and dissent are not tolerated, and young scientists learn to remain silent if they have something negative to say about the...

What Needs To Be Taught?

Posted on Jun 15, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  At AOI, we often are reminded that as modern-day Christians, we are in a battle for hearts and minds. That fact is clearly illustrated by the perspective of the devout humanist who said: “I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call...

Order of Fossils

Posted on Jun 8, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “The general order in which fossils are found also supports the Flood model, as it reflects the stages of burial during the year of the Flood. For example, bottom-dwelling sea creatures were buried first, then fish, followed by the slow-moving land animals unable to flee to higher ground. The larger animals were buried late in the Flood as they continued to move to higher ground until unable to escape the rising Flood waters.” “For preservation to occur through...

Major Fossils All in One Layer!

Posted on Jun 3, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “One example [of a variety of major fossils found all in one layer] is seen in Canada’s Yoho National Park, high in the Rocky Mountains. Fossils from nearly all the major animal groups (phyla), including the vertebrates, are found in the same rock layers. The evolutionary scientists have no reasonable explanation for this sudden appearance of complex life-forms, let alone all of them at virtually the same time, and very early in their supposed evolutionary...
