How Old Are You…Really??

How Old Are You…Really??

  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 –...

Beauty From…

Beauty From…

Posted on May 4, 2017 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

I want to tell you about a powerful, reflective experience I had recently. We were blessed to be participants in teaching the students from Jackson Hole Bible College (www.jhbc.edu – we highly recommend their 1-year program) for a 2 week trip to the Southwest, including the Grand Canyon (which was just one among many significant geologic sites we visited!). It was a great trip to be a part of. (Aimee and I are actually on staff with AOI because of that trip 7 years ago!!)...

Watching Movies…Easy. Making Movies…

Watching Movies…Easy. Making Movies…

Posted on Mar 3, 2017 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

I love watching movies… I love watching documentaries. I think I tend to learn better visually and with audio. Lately, in fact, as a team, we at AOI have been realizing that video appears to be the way that most people think and learn…or at least prefer to be entertained. So we are realizing that we want to do a better job of capturing our information in video form. And that has been the challenge for me as of lately. Watching videos is great! Making videos should be no big...

For Such A Time As This…

For Such A Time As This…

Posted on Feb 7, 2017 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

I have two children. I have waited my whole life to be a mom, and being one is proving to be filled with even more joy, intense love, heartache and yearning over my kids, than anyone ever said it would be. But these are uncertain times. I don’t know what the future holds. I pause and wonder: how many faithful parents in the history of time have peered into the future without a shadow of anxious yearning over their children, wishing they could offer a safer, purer world for...

To Be Remembered is To Live On!

To Be Remembered is To Live On!

Posted on Sep 19, 2016 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

Recently, I was going for a walk and I saw this phrase on a commemoration bench for a person that had passed away. To Be Remembered is to Live On. At first glance, I didn’t think too much about it and then I realized…wow…how sad that is. That is the only thing I know about that person or family, but if that is their hope…it isn’t hope! It reminded me of what hope really is!   I think we are all honored when someone says an encouraging word to us that they were thinking...

Reflecting on AOI’s Yellowstone Tour 2016!

Posted on Sep 14, 2016 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

I recently helped out with AOI’s Yellowstone Creation Tour and it was a fantastic weekend. I was awed by the unique and incredible natural features of Yellowstone National Park and refreshed by the time to get away and enjoy God’s beautiful creation.   I think one of the things that I was most blessed by from this tour was the group comradery and encouragement.  We were able to come together as believers of God and His Creation and share together in the beauty of His...

Opening Eyes Blinded by our Culture!

Posted on Sep 5, 2016 in Blog Posts, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

Recently, I was blessed with the opportunity to teach a group of young students touring the US from France! I know hardly anything about France, but now I guess I know a little more. It was interesting to watch these students as they started off shy and unsure of what I was sharing with them. I was told at one point too, that as much as evolutionary thought has infiltrated the US, in France it has gone even farther. There is really no debate at all there, because Evolution...

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...

Radiometric Dating – Creation Perspective

Posted on Mar 20, 2015 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

  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...

Radiometric Dating – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective

Posted on Mar 17, 2015 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 1 comment

    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...

Oldest Records and Objects – Creation Perspective

Posted on Mar 12, 2015 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  Creation Answer: Based on the history recorded in the Bible, we would expect that the oldest objects and records should be only up to about 6,000 years old or even less due to the destructive global flood around 4,400 years ago. There would be no problem if human remains or objects were found in the fossil record.[i] Naturalists have no problem assigning an age older than 6,000 years to an object because they expect or assume that humans have slowly developed...
