Don’t Humans Share DNA with Apes? Isn’t that Proof of Evolution?

Don’t Humans Share DNA with Apes? Isn’t that Proof of Evolution?

Posted on Nov 4, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“Claim: Humans share almost 99% of our DNA with Chimpanzees.   Reality: This originally came from analyzing only the portion of the genome that is already similar. Looking at the broader genome including Indels, that percentage is closer to 86-89%. If “junk DNA” is considered (which is not junk!), the percentage is even much lower. Genetic researcher, Dr. Jeffrey Tomkins, shows the similarity may be between 71-86%. He states, “While it is true that there are sections...

  Today, AOI Speaker Brian Mariani is at the Grand Canyon leading a Creation Tour for Jackson Hole Bible College! Be praying for students and staff for travel mercies and a blessed trip!   Here is a Nugget – – The white-tailed Kaibab squirrel on the North Rim is a variation of the white-chested Abert Squirrel on the South Rim. “The Canyon acts as an effective barrier which separates the squirrel population of the north rim from that on the south and...

Junk DNA… Functional, but still Junk?

Junk DNA… Functional, but still Junk?

Posted on Oct 18, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 1 comment

  This is intriguing. For years evolutionists have been predicting — then claiming without proof — that a high percentage of our DNA is “junk” – the leftovers from millions of years of evolution. Creationists predicted that since God doesn’t make junk, we will find important uses for so-called “junk DNA.” When we pointed out that virtually everything that was called “junk DNA” has now been shown to have important and sometimes vital functions,...

Ever Wonder Where Golf Ball Dimples Came From?

Ever Wonder Where Golf Ball Dimples Came From?

Posted on Oct 14, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “Golf balls made during the 1800s were made with a smooth surface so it would fly farther.  At some point, golfers noticed that older balls covered with nicks and grooves seemed to fly farther.  By the 1930s, the standard golf ball was covered with dimples.  Just as golf balls are designed with “dimples,” so is shark skin. To swim faster, a shark bristles with its denticles, causing tiny whirlpools to form within the cavities between the denticles. These tiny...

Could Adam have really named all of the animals in one day?

Could Adam have really named all of the animals in one day?

Posted on Aug 10, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“There are several factors, which may not be immediately obvious to the casual reader, that need to be considered. Firstly, Adam did not have to go out and round up or track any of these animals. Genesis 2:19 clearly states that God brought the animals to Adam. Secondly, although many objectors have claimed that the species Adam had to observe and name would have numbered in the millions, the actual number would almost certainly have been only a small fraction of this. Note...

Sloths are……s…l…o…w…

Posted on Jul 6, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

They are slow because that helps conserve energy. They spend around 18 hours a day sleeping upside down in trees. A question to evolutionists could be that in the supposed 60 million years since they have supposedly evolved, why hasn’t another predator “super”-evolved to wipe them out. They are camouflaged, but is that enough for surviving 60 million years while other things are supposedly evolving? See more here:...

  I wanted to share with you an encouraging email we received from an attendee of one of our church seminars.  At this particular event, I was teaching my Genesis Series starting with Genesis chapter one. Below is the email (the name and location were withheld by request). Hi Rich, Thank you so much for teaching during the Sunday school hour at our church this past month. I hope you can come back again if you have the time. There are so many more things I want to...

The Beauty of Water

The Beauty of Water

Posted on Apr 21, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  After a recent seminar tour, we discovered that spring is a great time to travel through the Pacific Northwest, especially when they have had an abundance of rain, along with a little snow. It makes for LOTS of water!  We had the privilege of stopping to see several waterfalls as we journeyed through the Columbia River Gorge.  They were very full and exceptionally beautiful, even in the rain!  It was also fascinating to see the immense amount of moss growing on the...

Scary Times – Genetic Engineering and Bioethics!

Scary Times – Genetic Engineering and Bioethics!

Posted on Mar 23, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  We are in scary times when it comes to what we can do with technology. This article does even refer to bioethics, but I think the scary thing is…from an evolutionary worldview (i.e. Survival of the Fittest) – what is bioethically “right” or “wrong”? From a completely naturalistic/evolutionary worldview…is there any boundary or limit to how we can or cannot affect the genetics of another person!  ...

Data in Your DNA!

Data in Your DNA!

Posted on Mar 21, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Scientists can now build practically any DNA sequence that they want which is allowing us to use it as a storage device. One research team has engineered DNA strands to store the information for an operating system, text, images, and a movie and they were able to successfully retrieve it. This technology could make huge strides in progress – think about it as they put it – “all your data in a drop of DNA.”   Let’s not forget, though, that this is clearly the work of a...

Appendix 30.0

Posted on Feb 27, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Did you ever hear that the human appendix is a “vestigial organ,” leftover from evolution? Does research support that claim? Absolutely NOT! In order to salvage the evolutionary “story” of our “leftover” organ, and to accommodate modern research, evolutionists are now being forced to say that the appendix had to evolve over 30 times!! Whoa!! That should really stretch anyone’s credulity beyond the breaking point for evolution! Check it out: Solving Appendix...

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...
