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 At the time of creation, God originally made man and apes as two different kinds.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

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...

Modern Physics – Creation Perspective

Posted on Oct 15, 2014 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

  Creation Answer: Physics (and math) have been discovered, not evolved. Naturalism can’t explain why physics and math are the way they are. Some naturalists don’t see this as a problem, because the fact that these mathematical and physical laws and principles exist is proof that they had to have formed to make the universe. “It’s perfect just because it is” isn’t a satisfactory answer. Naturalism doesn’t have an answer for how or why the laws of physics exist....

Modern Physics – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective

Posted on Oct 14, 2014 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

  Introduction: Modern Physics is the extension of previous levels of physics and is therefore the study of the fundamental and “weird” interactions that occur in our universe. Sir Isaac Newton really founded the study of physics by his understanding of gravity and forces (now called Newtonian or Classical Physics) and since then, modern physics has taken our understanding to a whole new level. Quantum Mechanics was developed based on the research of atoms and...

Strong Magnetic Fields – Creation Perspective

Posted on Oct 3, 2014 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 0 comments

  Creation Answer: According to the National Geomagnetic Initiative, “the mechanism for generating the geomagnetic field remains one of the central unresolved problems in geosciences.”[i] “Magnetism is almost as much of a puzzle now as it was when William Gilbert (1544-1603) wrote his classic text, ‘Concerning Magnetism, Magnetic Bodies, and the Great Magnet, Earth’ in 1600.”[ii] “What a planet needs in order to produce a strong magnetic field is (1) a liquid...

Strong Magnetic Fields – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective

Posted on Oct 1, 2014 in Marianis from the Front, The Biggest Challenges to Evolution | 1 comment

Introduction: The earth and many other planets, and even the sun, currently retain very strong magnetic fields. Over time those magnetic fields should have weakened. Is there a phenomenon that can recharge dying magnetic fields? How are these magnetic fields formed? Are magnetic fields formed naturally or designed by God for our protection? How do the magnetic fields really affect earth? What does the evidence tell us about the age of the earth and the universe?  ...
