Assault on Academic Freedom

Posted on Jul 3, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  The photo is of the Shafer Bell Tower at Ball state University. At this moment, some radical atheists are hoping that any sound that might be coming out of it might be a toll on academic freedom that challenges evolutionary dogma. World Magazine reported June 18th that one of Ball State’s untenured faculty members, Assistant Professor Dr.  Eric Hedin, “crossed a line when he encouraged classroom discussion that included multiple views of life’s origins.” That got...

Box-Like Aerodynamic Car

Posted on Jun 5, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 2 comments

When I first saw a picture of the Mercedes-Benz bionic concept vehicle, I had to laugh. In my view, it was quite comical, as far as cars go. All humor aside though, the boxy, rectangular body of the Bionic Car is a very efficient design. As it turns out, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz were looking for a new aerodynamic design in a car. They found their inspiration in the tropical boxfish (Ostracion Cubicus) that lives in warm ocean waters. Although the rather large body of...

Using the Technology of the Gecko

Posted on Apr 16, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

    A gecko is an amazing lizard that can stick to almost any surface, even when inverted on a mirrored ceiling. It is able to do this because of an amazing foot design. The ribbed pads on the bottom of the gecko’s feet are covered with very tiny hair like bristles called setae. These setae (1/10th mm long) are packed tightly together (three million per square inch or 5,000 per square millimeter), and each seta has about 400 to 1,000 branches that resemble tiny...

Why all the hype about finding water on Mars?

Why all the hype about finding water on Mars?

Posted on Apr 10, 2013 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  Why all the hype about finding water on Mars? Below are some quotes from articles about finding evidence of water on Mars.   “Mars once had conditions favorable for microbial life, NASA scientists announced” “It shows veins of sediments that scientist believe were deposited under water and was an environment once hospitable to life.” “We have found a habitable environment that is so benign, and supportive of life, that probably if this...

Answered Prayers

  Last summer we took our 6 year old (at that time) grandson to a local Bible camp where we were teaching. We were blessed to be able to lead him to the Lord that week. We were also blessed to be there for his professing his faith through baptism just last month. Last Easter our oldest granddaughter (now 6 years old) gave her life to the Lord, and this past Sunday at her church she went forward requesting baptism. She will be baptized on Easter morning! This is...

Dawkins Becomes a Creationist??

Posted on Mar 15, 2013 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  I recently read a blog article entitled, “Dawkins becomes a Creationist.” The title certainly jerked my head into reading position as I had great hopes that the prolific, atheism-promoting writer, Richard Dawkins, saw the true light. However, the blog article was written by Dr. Karen Dawkins who, as an evolutionist, evolved into a creationist during her college years as a result of seeing evidence for creation and the problems with evolution. She later received her...
