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...

Investigation and Debate within Science

Posted on May 29, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“We need investigation, not arbitrary exclusion of what is scientifically unfashionable. In particular, Christian colleges, funding sources, and fellow scientists should not excommunicate young-earthers. We should encourage debate among all those who see the Bible as God’s Word but have differences in interpretation.”   -Marvin Olasky, Riding the rapids, World Magazine, http://www.worldmag.com/2010/08/riding_the_rapids/page4   This quote surely describes the...

Catastrophes and Time

Posted on May 19, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“In other words, the history of any one part of the earth, like the life of a soldier, consists of long periods of boredom and short periods of terror.”              -Derek Ager , The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record, pp 106, 107.   This quote is from a naturalistic scientist and he admits that catastrophe is clear when looking at the fossil record and rock layers. Naturalistic scientists then assume that there are often large gaps of time between catastrophes, but...

Dinosaurs in Pompeii??!!

Posted on Apr 28, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Recently, dinosaur fossils have come from an area in China, nicknamed “‘Chinese Pompeii’ because it was assumed the animals had been killed by volcanic gases and buried at the same time under clouds of ash from erupting volcanoes.” It turns out that they were buried by water-laid volcanic sediments. One researcher said, “It was difficult to distinguish the water-carried ash from airfall ash.”[i] So here we have secular archaeologists admitting yet another example of fossils...

Human Ancestors – Creation Perspective

Posted on Apr 4, 2015 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

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....

Human Ancestors – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective

Posted on Apr 3, 2015 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

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...
