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 At the time of creation, God originally made man and apes as two different kinds.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 | 0 comments

    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...

  Introduction: They are a variety of old objects and records and more artifacts are constantly being discovered. Are these objects and records actually as old as they say they are?  How can you tell how old an object is? What is the oldest object ever found?  Naturalistic/Evolutionary Answer: “Genetic and fossil evidence indicate anatomically modern humans emerged in Africa around 120,000 years ago.”[i] Humans first developed simple things initially made out of rock...

Beauty and Art – Creation Perspective

Posted on Feb 26, 2015 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

Creation Answer: Beauty and art are not just the result of evolution for mating purposes.[i] “Essentially, the foundational argument would suggest that, given the universal reality that the concept of “beauty” exists (even if it is in “the eye of the beholder”) there is an ultimate “standard” by which beauty is judged. Determining the aesthetic value of anything requires rational judgment, even though that judgment is unique to each...

Beauty and Art – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective

Posted on Feb 25, 2015 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

Introduction: “Aesthetics is the study of beauty, more often associated today with art.”[i] Some believe that beauty and art have developed as we have evolved, mainly for mating purposes and driven by selfish desires. Others believe that beauty and art were designed by a beautiful, loving, creative God to show His nature and glory to us and through us. What is beauty? Why do we have beauty? Is beauty for more than just mating purposes? What is art? Why is art so...

Laws of Logic – Creation Perspective

Posted on Nov 13, 2014 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

  Creation Answer: Everyone uses the laws of logic, and they are evidence of the nature, design, and existence of God. Christians use the laws of logic to provide substantiation to the idea that God’s word is true, just as naturalists/evolutionists use them to argue their beliefs. God gave us the tools of logic so we can think, grow, learn, and do science. The laws of logic “are rooted in God’s own nature. Indeed, some scholars think the passage ‘In the beginning was...

Laws of Logic – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective

Posted on Nov 12, 2014 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

  Introduction: What is logic and how does it work? We use logic everyday, even when we don’t think about it. “A simple definition of logic is ‘the study of right reason.’”[i] The laws of logic appear to be standardized, set rules for how to think. The laws of logic are important because without them science, and thinking in general, would not even be possible and humans would not able to develop any sort of advancements. Without the laws of logic, one would not even...

Interview Questions for Young Creation Evangelists

  One of our goals at AOI is to not only spread the gospel as we teach the creation message, but also to train and equip others to go and do the same. We want to encourage those who God is calling to teach creation, whether formally or informally, and when possible, help them connect with local Creation teaching ministries – or even start one of their own! With that in mind, we would like to share this interview with California high school senior Caleb. Caleb is the...
