Two Squirrels Separated by Time!!

  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...

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...

Did Adam and Eve have Belly Buttons?

Did Adam and Eve have Belly Buttons?

Posted on Sep 8, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Since Adam and Eve were not born of a woman, it is possible that they may not have had belly buttons since they didn’t need an umbilical cord connecting them to a mother. This likely was yet another reminder and evidence to the people living in that day of the fact that God specially created Adam and Eve. Think of it, young children for hundreds of years could have gone to visit great-great-great Grandpa Adam and great-great-great Grandma Eve to ask “Can we see your...

Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg?

Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg?

Posted on Sep 7, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Answering Tuesday’s question: Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg? We see in Gen 2 that Adam was created with enough intelligence (and maturity) to name the animals, so he was probably older than a child. We also see that God created the trees with fruit and seed in them which means that these are mature plants – since we know it may take years for some plants or trees to be old enough to have food. So we can probably say God created the mature chicken first (possibly...

“No Intelligent Designer Would Have…”

“No Intelligent Designer Would Have…”

Posted on Aug 17, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“No Intelligent Designer would have created the eye that way – it is wired backwards!” “Is there material at the front of the retina that limits some vision? Yes! If that material wasn’t there, could we be able to see farther and in dimly lit rooms? Yes! Therefore, since I could design it better, that means there can’t be a God. Wrong! That is merely the third stage of deception that students are subtly led into. First of all, this is an argument from perceived...

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...

Southwest Geology Tour Sights- Upheaval Dome

Southwest Geology Tour Sights- Upheaval Dome

Posted on Apr 20, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  On the college field trip that Mary Jo & I are leading, we see many great sites, several of which leave us with more questions than answers. One such example is: what caused the unusual formation called Upheaval Dome? Was it a meteor that slammed into the earth at this spot? Perhaps it was a fluid like bulge of a salt dome pushing it up from below? Is it a volcanic outburst? Perhaps there were giant gophers in the past that dug this immense mile wide hole? All of...

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...

Ministry in El Salvador

Ministry in El Salvador

Posted on Mar 7, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Last week, I had the opportunity to speak at several churches (with groups ranging from 65 to around 200), a university with 25 in attendance, a public school group of about 50 teens and a Christian school of an estimated 125 to 150 high school and middle school students. All of this was in the country of El Salvador. (The sign at the right says: Dave Nutting Welcome to the City of God.) The churches had special services on Saturday night, and Sunday morning as well...

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

Posted on Feb 23, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 1 comment

  You have probably heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Studies have shown that 80% of the knowledge our brain accumulates comes from sight. So with these two thoughts in mind, we have chosen to use pictures and graphics as a powerful tool for teaching. For the last 24 years, Marilyn and I have used many techniques for projecting images. When we first began with AOI, Marilyn was doing the major amount of teaching with a flannel board. This limited us to...

T.u.g.ging… at Fruita Monument High School

Posted on Feb 8, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  I have been teaching at Fruita Monument High School, during the lunch hour, for the past several Mondays.  It has been with a group of students which use the acronym T.U.G., which stands for Teens Uplifting God. The school website states, “TUG is a group that is devoted to learning more about God and His purpose for our lives.  It is a safe place and one to find encouragement.” Our first session dealt with the immense complexity of the cell and the vast...
