Dinosaur Track Field Trip

Posted on Sep 19, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Last month I had an opportunity to give some creation presentations at a church in Gateway, Colorado relating to dinosaurs and evidence for the Flood. Afterwards, we took an excursion to a dinosaur trackway which is found on a sandstone layer in the mountains between Gateway, Colorado and Moab, Utah. The question that was posed to me, as a geologist, was how they were made and then preserved. The first thing I jokingly told them is that the dinosaur must have weighed...

Horn Creek Creation Adventure Report

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Mary Jo & I recently enjoyed conducting a family camp at Horn Creek Camp near Westcliffe, Colorado. It was our first year doing a Creation Adventure at this camp and everything went great. Families enjoyed the facilities including their lodge rooms, excellent meals, and the meeting room for our presentations. The activities were as intense or as laid back as each family desired. From the comments we received, everyone benefitted from, and enjoyed, the Creation...

Is Teaching Creation Child Abuse?

Posted on Jun 26, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 2 comments

  An article in Creation Ministries International’s Prayer News (April 2014) caught my eye. It was entitled: “ ‘Teaching creation is child abuse’? A response to rabid atheist claims.” In this well-written article, Gary Bates exposed their tactics and answered their unscientific claims. Teaching creationism has been called “child abuse” because it is withholding information from children. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Creationists like Bates and...

Microscopic Structure of Tears

Posted on Jun 20, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  I was alerted to a photographic study, which I managed to find on the web, regarding the microscopic structure of dried human tears. Rose-Lynn Fisher, the photographer, wondered if various tear types dry into different patterns. It appears at first glance that tears of joy yield a different pattern from tears from onions, tears from grief, or just normal tears which continually lubricate the eye. Although I had never considered that one teardrop might differ from...

Evolution is Not Science, It is Philosophy

Posted on May 16, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Mary Jo and I recently spoke at Westland Baptist Church in Katy, TX. The two sermon sessions I gave seemed very well-received, that is judging from the numerous comments and also the desire for more resources on the topics. One of the points I made is that evolution is not science.  Instead, it is a philosophy posing as though it were science. I expected that the statement would raise a few eyebrows with some of the students who were present at the church. After all,...

Planet Earth: A Great Place to Be

Posted on May 13, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  If you think a full moon rising over the horizon is beautiful, just imagine being on the moon and seeing your planet overhead in the sky! Now for you couples, that would be romantic! NASA recently came out with a remarkable “Earth Day” satellite photo of our planet. Besides being breath-taking, one of the things it shows is the circulation in the atmosphere as noticed in the partial cloud cover. That is so important for us to have a home where we can breathe and...

Ancient walk on the beach

Posted on May 1, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  People have asked me about the reports of footprints of a human ancestor, which were uncovered by recent tides, being found in England. An article came out a couple of weeks ago in The Telegraph (April 21, 2014)  in regards to some tracks that were preserved in soft sedimentary rock. It referenced an older article (Feb, 7, 2014) by Richard Gray, a science correspondent, entitled 900,000 year old footprints of earliest northern Europeans discovered. Researchers think...

Those Stubborn Mules

Posted on Apr 18, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  I really appreciate people sending me articles. Thanks, Frank, for the one regarding the mule! One of the tests we have imposed on the term “species” is that of reproduction. If two animals can reproduce and if the offspring is viable (meaning the offspring can reproduce), then we say the original pair are of the same “species.” It has been a common thought that mules, which are the hybrids between horses and donkeys, do not reproduce. That would mean that the donkey...

Getting Buried at the Museum

Posted on Apr 8, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  AOI always enjoys opportunities, with two just this past week, to give creation presentations along with museum tours of the Dinosaur Journey Museum in Fruita, CO. We have heard that this most recent tour has already had an impact on some of the participants! One was for a group of college students. The other group was a vibrant group of home educators and their children. The children really enjoyed the station where you can “dig” up dinosaur bones. Actually, as you...

Good Morning!

Posted on Apr 4, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  As we were preparing for a full day of field trips, with the Jackson Hole Bible College, this was the scene in what is supposed to be warm and sunny Moab, Utah. It was still snowing! The students had just came from a pile of snow and very cold temperatures in Wyoming, so they likely think this is normal. However, they did have expectations of warmer weather and had to trade in their shorts for something warmer. We had to delay our excursion a couple of hours from...

75 Years of Commitment

Posted on Apr 2, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  My parents, Irwin and Barbara Nutting, just celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary. First of all, that is hardly heard of because of the age attainments necessary. Secondly, many people are amazed at 75 years because of the fact that people these days seem to drift in and out of relationships with little commitment to each other long-term. I realize that circumstances can make a marriage seem unbearable, but so many trials that cause many people to split apart,...

In Texas …or is this Canada?

Posted on Feb 14, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  We thought we were heading to a warmer climate, but it appears like the plane flew in the wrong direction or they moved Texas to the middle of Canada!  Bhrrrrr… It’s cold! Fortunately, we have dodged the sections that had snow and black ice.  We have certainly been praying for clear roads! Mary Jo and I have been filling in for Richard Stepanek at speaking events he had previously scheduled with creation groups in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.  Due to his wife...
