THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

Posted on Feb 23, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  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

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...

How many reactions per second?!! No Way…

How many reactions per second?!! No Way…

Posted on Feb 1, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  I am currently teaching a series, about cults and the connection that they have to evolution, to a local church’s youth group.  I have taught this group at various times in the past, when I am not traveling of course, and so I have gotten to know some of the students quite well.  This is always a great benefit as they tend to open up, ask questions, and generally feel much more comfortable with me than if I had just come in for a session or two.   During...

“You have Anti-Freeze running through your veins, man!”

Posted on Sep 8, 2016 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“In the frozen wastes of Siberia, an amazing salamander is able to survive in suspended animation for years, deep-frozen at temperatures as low as –50°C, only to thaw out and run off afterwards. Scientists are not yet sure of the exact mechanism, but, like some other animals, they almost certainly produce ‘anti-freeze’ chemicals to replace water in their tissues and cells. Some have been found buried in ice which is believed to be from the Pleistocene Age—12,000 years ago...

Big Gap from Mice to Bats!

Posted on Sep 1, 2016 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“For the sake of discussion, let’s say that mice evolved into bats. If this occurred, you would expect to find fossil mice and fossil bats, along with all the transitional forms (or intermediate animals) between the two, in the fossil record. A hypothetical example follows: Animal A (below) is the first step of a mouse changing into a bat. The animal looks like a mouse, but its arms are now longer than its legs. It will need these long arms to form the wings....

Symbiotic Evidence of Design

Posted on Nov 16, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “PBS 3 also describes the leaf-cutting ants of Brazil. They form colonies containing eight million insects, and they cut leaves into pieces and bring them to the nest, but they don’t eat them. Rather, other leafcutter ants mulch them and use the mulch to grow a fungus ‘garden.’ This fungus is used as food for the young leafcutters, which thus depend on the fungus for survival, but the fungus depends on the ants to provide the mulch. But this fungus garden has a...

Ask Now The Beasts

“Hey, kids! Head on out to the flower garden, while I get a book from the library,” said Mr. Jones.  “I want to show you some of God’s wonderful creatures.” “What’s up, Dad?” asked Billy. “This morning I was reading my Bible, and in Job, chapter 12, verse 7, it says, ‘But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee;’ I wondered, what could the animals teach me?” “Animals can’t talk, Dad.  How can they teach us anything?” asked Mary. “Actually Mary, some animals can...

Stars

On a clear night, an unaided observer can see somewhere around 2000 stars.  With a telescope multitudes more become visible.  How many are there in all?  No one really knows, and yet the Bible records God’s promise to Abraham thousands of years ago:  “In blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the sea shore” (Gen. 22:17).  Just as no man could ever count the grains of sand on the sea...

Hurrah for Ants!

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Many of us are familiar with the children’s counting song, “The ants go marching one by one…” Scientists have now discovered that at least some species of ants do appear to be counting their steps when they go marching out in search of food.  After training some desert ants to look for food in a specific location, scientists investigated how the ants could consistently locate the same source of food with seeming ease. It is known that ants will leave scent markers to guide...

Cheetahs: Killing Machines? Science or Philosophy?

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

(The following quote by evolutionist, Richard Dawkins, was sent to us for comments by Elisabeth Rohloff.  She was taking AOI’s intern program via correspondence.  Dr. Korow, a veterinarian who completed our intern program, shares his thoughts.  Editor) Dawkin’s Challenge:“Cheetahs. . . appear to be well designed to kill antelopes.  The teeth, claws, eyes, nose, leg muscles, backbone and brain of a cheetah are all precisely what we should expect if God’s purpose in designing...

Brown Pelicans – Fishing, Flying Wonders

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Kid's Think & Believe Too! | 0 comments

The Jones family was crossing Galveston Bay by Galveston, Texas on the car ferry. They had left their car on the parking deck and climbed the stairs to the observation deck. “Mom and Dad! Look!” Billy pointed and shouted. “A big bird just crashed into the water!” “It didn’t crash, Billy,” laughed his mother, Mrs. Jones. “That is a Brown Pelican, and it is fishing. Watch … it just tipped its beak up and swallowed a fish.” “You mean he caught a fish?” asked Billy. “Yes,...

Bio-Inspiration

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Bio-inspiration means that manufacturers and engineers are inspired by the tremendous design of living creatures to make useful human “inventions.” For instance, Velcro was copied from the hooks of the common burr which is frequently picked up in the fur of a dog. Sonar and radar were inspired by bats and dolphins. Very recently a new fabric-adhesive was inspired by the foot of the gecko lizard. The gecko’s ability to walk upside down on the ceiling and even on glass...
