God at Work in our Lives!! – 2022
Dave and Mary Jo Nutting: During our seminars, we like to see eyes light up when we expose the issues of evolution and present a positive case for Creation. However, we also thrive on the relationships fostered by longer-term camps and tours. This note was from one of the participants from our Yellowstone tour: “Thank you again so much! Your encouragement, listening ear, attention (and patience) with our kids, your courage and passion to share...Read More
The Positive Case for Creation
The Positive Case for Creation: Is there evidence to show that Creation Science is true? “When we examine the world, we find abundant positive evidence to support these claims. Here are just a few examples.” -The Cause of the Universe -Design in Nature -Source of Morality -Young Age Indicators -Genetic data consistent with Adam and Eve -Geology supports a global flood -Human Value -Signs of the soul -Marriage and family Which one do you...Read More
I came across this article in an older Think & Believe Newsletter. As I was, I think you will be blessed by Lanny’s testimony here: “All of the AOI speakers minister to thousands of people every year both in groups and one-to-one. Because of the traveling nature of AOI’s ministry, we share for a brief time, but then travel down the road to a new event. Mostly, all we are able to do is plant a seed of truth and encouragement, and pray that it falls on fertile soil. The...Read More
Cross-Bedded Sandstones: Windblown or Water Carried?
Cross what? Sandstone was formed from sand that became washed or blown into place and later cemented together by waterborne minerals to become solid rock. Crossbedding refers to a specific type of layering which is noticeable in many sandstone deposits. In the picture above, notice the flat horizontal line and then the layers dipping downward to the left. This is typical crossbedding. Measuring the angle that the layers dip can give a clue as to what deposited the...Read More

Laws of Logic – Creation Perspective
Creation Answer: Everyone uses the laws of logic, and they are evidence of the nature, design, and existence of God. Christians use the laws of logic to provide substantiation to the idea that God’s word is true, just as naturalists/evolutionists use them to argue their beliefs. God gave us the tools of logic so we can think, grow, learn, and do science. The laws of logic “are rooted in God’s own nature. Indeed, some scholars think the passage ‘In the beginning was...Read More
The Big Bang Theory – Creation Perspective
Creation Answer: Naturalists say that the universe is billions of years old, based on current observations, but this is again based on their assumptions of the current data. Creationists say that current observations show that the universe could not be billions of years old and the Bible, God’s historical record, describes the creation account only several thousand years ago. There are many things that point to a young universe, such as: the existence of comets,...Read More
The Big Bang Theory – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective
Introduction: Based on current observations, the universe is expanding. “If we could watch a video recording of the history of the universe in reverse, we would see all matter in the universe collapse back to a point, not the size of a basketball, not the size of a golf ball, not even the size of a pinhead, but mathematically and logically to a point that is actually nothing (i.e., no space, no time, and no matter). In other words, once there was nothing, and then,...Read More
Star and Planetary Formation – Creation Perspective
Creation Answer: In order for stars to start forming, there must be gas clouds that can be compressed. The possibilities for compression can be: a nearby supernova (exploding star), dust grains from a supernova that cool and compress the gas cloud, colliding gas clouds, like galaxies colliding, black holes, which may emit jets of high-speed material that will compress the gas cloud, or radiation from other nearby stars may compress the gas cloud. In each of...Read More
Star and Planetary Formation – Naturalistic/Evolutionary Perspective
Introduction: There are countless stars in the universe and with each star, there could be many planets. How do stars form? How do rocky planets form and how do gas planets form? What causes stars and planets to form? Have we observed any form? How often should a star be born? How does this evidence affect the age estimates of our universe? Naturalistic/Evolutionary Answer: “In the Milky Way today the average annual star formation rate is ten solar masses,” but it...Read More
