Are You a Neanderthal???

Posted on Aug 24, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  Neanderthals are “characterized by prominent eyebrow ridges (like modern Australian aborigines), low forehead, long narrow skull, a protruding upper jaw, and a strong lower jaw with a short chin. They were deep-chested, large-boned individuals with a powerful build. It should be emphasized, however, that none of these features fall outside the range of normal human anatomy.” “If he (Neandertal man) could be reincarnated and placed in a New York subway provided he were bathed, shaved and dressed in modern clothing it is doubtful whether he would attract any more attention that some of its other denizens.” Quote from David Menton, Making Monkeys Out of Man, Also quoting Quarterly Review of Biology, vol. 32, pp. 348–63,...

Science is Faith-based

Posted on Aug 10, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “According to this biblical definition, science itself is a faith-based system, for it is a system often governed by “the evidence of things not seen.” Indeed, this is an essential modus operandi in science. Without ever having directly observed them, science believes in many concepts and systems at the subatomic, the super-galactic, and even the macroscopic natural level of life. Black holes, certain astronomical objects, the chemical composition of celestial bodies, the recent evidence that water once existed on the surface of Mars, and many other topics are unobserved beliefs that are held due to certain data sets that infer their reality (“the evidence of things not seen”). Even gravity and the earth’s magnetic poles fit the description. We cannot directly observe either, nor even thoroughly explain them; but we can see and measure their effects, and we believe they exist.” “Because scientists have observed the effects they would expect to see if a particular concept, physical body, or system exists, they believe that particular concept, physical body, or system exists. By definition these are faith-based beliefs; the precise implementation of the biblical concept of faith (‘the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen’).” “Using the same sound logic a true scientist uses when trusting the inferences of his data set, those not offended by the inferences of this data set (the universe) have concluded that it is an amazingly imaginative and ordered structure. And given its intricate and precise nature, from the macro super-galactic level down to the subatomic quantum level, and then topping it off with the inexplicable mystery of life itself, an intelligent Creator is the only logical and plausible cause. Therefore an intelligent Creator exists. God exists.” Quote from Desmond Allen, An Apology and Unification Theory for the Reconciliation of Physical matter and Metaphysical...

Are “Multiverses” a Good Explanation?

Posted on Jul 13, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “Multiverses supposedly explain the existence of [our universe] with special characteristics. But this is really special pleading, i.e. an explanation these atheists accept for the universe but would not tolerate for a second to explain anything else. Consider if we found a pattern of markings on a beach which spelled your name. Naturally you would conclude that an intelligent agent had written it. This is more plausible than thinking that wind and wave erosion somehow produced that pattern by chance, even though there is an extremely tiny probability of this happening.” “But under multiverse reasoning, there are an infinite number of parallel universes containing every possible quantum state, ‘In infinite space, even the most unlikely events must take place somewhere.’” Scientists have come up with the multiverse theory to explain how a universe (ours) could be so lucky as to form. With many (a near infinite amount) different possible universes, chances are increased that possibly one will be perfect for order, complexity and life.  What is otherwise an extremely low probability (that a perfect universe like ours would arise) then becomes most certain. The multiverse theory is one example of the great lengths that certain scientists have gone to in order to explain the incredible intricacy of our universe. The naturalist has to come up with this elaborate scenario, but ultimately the universe is evidence of God’s incredibly detailed design. The conclusion that a loving God created a complex universe seems to me to be a more logical explanation than resorting to a multiverse theory.

What’s the Alternative?

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

“We might think chapter 2 of Genesis teaches that ‘God formed the man of dust from the ground,’ and Eve from Adam—but if they were the product of evolution, then early Genesis becomes a myth, and everyone who assumed the history to be true (including Jesus and Paul) were naive. Original sin becomes a theoretical construct rather than harsh reality, so why do we desperately need Christ?” “What’s the alternative? Theistic evolutionists say we must bend or die, but when we bend on something so basic, where do we stop? Is our chief task to glorify our Creator or to be glorified by other creatures? When Darwin trumps the Bible, what are we worshipping?” Quote from Marvin Olasky, Married to Darwin, July 12, 2014

Major Fossils All in One Layer!

Posted on Jun 3, 2015 in Creation Nuggets, Uncategorized | 0 comments

  “One example [of a variety of major fossils found all in one layer] is seen in Canada’s Yoho National Park, high in the Rocky Mountains. Fossils from nearly all the major animal groups (phyla), including the vertebrates, are found in the same rock layers. The evolutionary scientists have no reasonable explanation for this sudden appearance of complex life-forms, let alone all of them at virtually the same time, and very early in their supposed evolutionary sequence.” Evolutionary theory cannot sufficiently answer this evidence.
