Best Evidence for Evolution: Examining Common “Best Proofs” Of Evolution

Posted on Apr 17, 2014 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

(From the larger article “What’s the Evidence?“) Typically, textbooks, museums, zoos, and the popular media present a very one-sided, evolutionary approach to the question of origins, with no consideration of the possibility of creation by an intelligent designer. This section will show how data, which is usually interpreted as “proof” of evolution, can be interpreted through a different set of glasses. For study purposes, this evidence is grouped under 4...

Great Evidences for Creation

Posted on Apr 17, 2014 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

(From the larger article “What’s the Evidence?“) Intelligent Design or Blind Chance? It’s a Battle of Worldviews! Dr. Scott Todd says, “Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic.” (Correspondence to Nature, September 30, 1999) So much for truth! However, Todd’s statement clearly reflects the philosophical viewpoint of Naturalism. This belief system teaches that...

3 Nails in the Evolutionary Coffin

(From the larger article “What’s the Evidence?“) Nail #1 Mutation and Natural Selection—A Dead theory Dr. John Sanford, a top genetics researcher from Cornell University (Credentials below), has discovered that that the genetic load caused by detrimental mutations is mounting up so quickly in large genomes that Darwin’s famous “natural selection” cannot reverse it. Therefore species are not getting better, but are being driven to extinction. He concludes...

Ask Now The Beasts

“Hey, kids! Head on out to the flower garden, while I get a book from the library,” said Mr. Jones.  “I want to show you some of God’s wonderful creatures.” “What’s up, Dad?” asked Billy. “This morning I was reading my Bible, and in Job, chapter 12, verse 7, it says, ‘But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee;’ I wondered, what could the animals teach me?” “Animals can’t talk, Dad.  How can they teach us anything?” asked Mary. “Actually Mary, some animals can...

Stars

On a clear night, an unaided observer can see somewhere around 2000 stars.  With a telescope multitudes more become visible.  How many are there in all?  No one really knows, and yet the Bible records God’s promise to Abraham thousands of years ago:  “In blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the sea shore” (Gen. 22:17).  Just as no man could ever count the grains of sand on the sea...

The Arrogance of Man

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

What arrogant creatures we human beings are!  We think we know so much, and that given enough time, we can solve all our problems by science and education.  Yet in reality, how frail and insignificant we are compared to our great Creator. Remember the story of Job?  He and his friends tried and tried to understand his suffering.  Finally, after they had failed to come to a satisfactory explanation through their human reasoning, God answered Job out of the storm with a...

The Horned Lizard

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

What is a toad that is not really a toad at all? It’s the Phrynosoma, or Horned Lizard, found only in the western areas of the United States and Mexico. Usually called a Horned Toad, Horny Toad, and even Horned Frog, the Horned Lizard is neither a toad nor a frog. In fact it is not an amphibian at all. It is a reptile! The nicknames come from the horned lizard’s rounded toad-like face, and because it has a short, wide, and squat body like that of a frog or toad. Horned...

Creation Facts of Life – Book Review

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Books and movies we like, Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Dr. Gary Parker is one of my favorite creation authors and speakers, and I was much blessed to take several classes from him years ago at the Institute for Creation Research.  I always enjoyed his enthusiasm and his wonderful teaching style – taking complicated topics and explaining them in understandable terms – weaving together intricate details to create a fascinating “big picture” tapestry.  His unique blend of knowledge, logic, humor, humility, and “down-home” approach...

Hurrah for Ants!

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Many of us are familiar with the children’s counting song, “The ants go marching one by one…” Scientists have now discovered that at least some species of ants do appear to be counting their steps when they go marching out in search of food.  After training some desert ants to look for food in a specific location, scientists investigated how the ants could consistently locate the same source of food with seeming ease. It is known that ants will leave scent markers to guide...

Is Science Neutral?

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

When asked, “What is science?”  the picture that comes to most people’s minds is a man in a white coat, peering into a microscope, discovering some significant truth.  For most people, including Christians, science is basically observation and experimentation – a neutral pursuit of knowledge.  But, is this really science? Our modern view of science has become very narrow when compared to the great scientists of the past.  For example, Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines...

Gems From Genesis – And It Was Good

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Six times in Genesis 1, we find the phrase “It was good.”  This phrase follows a pattern:  God speaks and something happens.  Then God examines His work and pronounces it “good.”  Following the creation of man – male and female – God looks at all that He has made and says, “It is very good.” This is not a series of haphazard, trial and error events.  Rather, God follows a well thought-out plan.  He is purposeful and precise in what He does.  He doesn’t make mistakes.  Nor...

Evolution: A Secular Religion?

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

We recently came across a brochure published by The Evolutionist Society entitled Evolutionism:  A Secular Religion. It made quite interesting reading, especially since we’ve so often been told that evolution is science and creation is religion.  Evolutionism was defined as “a secular religion not concerned with a supernatural god, with heaven, hell, angels, devils or experience beyond death.  It holds that these things exist only in the imagination.” “Evolutionism” as a...
