Furor Over Article in New Scientist

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

New Scientist (1/21/2009) carried a feature article and a cover illustration declaring, “Darwin Was Wrong.”  Whoa!  That caught the attention of some very irate evolutionists. The article centered on Darwin’s ideas of the tree of life, and challenges to this traditional view because of modern genetic research.  Included in the article was a reproduction of a simple tree of life sketched in Darwin’s 1837 journal with his words, “I think” inscribed above it. The traditional...

A Flood of Evidence Supports God’s Word

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

You may have heard the skeptics say, “You can’t use the Bible to prove the Bible!”  No problem.  A wealth of non-Biblical evidence backs up the Bible as God’s Word.  Based upon anthropological research, the non-Hebrew cultures already believe many of the things that the Hebrew Scripture teaches about Noah’s Flood.  When a comparison is made between the Noahic Flood account of Genesis 6-9 to the flood legends present in over 200 cultures world-wide, striking similarities...

Gems From Genesis – By the Word of the Lord

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

According to the evolutionary paradigm, it took millions of years of trial and error to “create” everything in the universe; but the Bible tells us a very different story – God spoke, and it was done!  Notice how often words referring to speech are used in Genesis1.  (“God said,” vs. 3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 29; “God called,” vs. 5, 8, 10; “God blessed,” vs. 22, 28.)  This truth is affirmed throughout Scripture.  Note the following examples (bold added for emphasis):...

Book Review: Darwin’s Plantation

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Books and movies we like, Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Was Darwin a racist?  Even though he was an abolitionist, most seem to agree that by today’s standards, he certainly held racist views.  You be the judge: The Origin of Species is subtitled The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life. A summary of some of Darwin’s points from The Descent of Man include: Humans are divided into sub-species (known as the races) Blacks and Aborigines are sub-species between Apes and Caucasians Inferior races will be driven to...

Fossils Are Fun – Once You Blow the Smoke Away

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

Whether it’s “Walking with Prehistoric Beasts” on the Discovery Channel or looking at National Geographic in the dentist’s office, it seems every time I turn around, I’m faced with some new fossil that “proves” evolution.  Normally, my reaction is to pass it off as evolutionary dogma and change the channel or read about something else like fly fishing.  However, I’m finding that by doing that, we, as Christians, can miss out on opportunities to discover more about God...

Nautiloids: An Amazing Discovery in the Grand Canyon

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

What in the world are nautiloids, and what do they have to do with the layers of the Grand Canyon?  It’s an amazing story of an amazing discovery with startling implications in the debate over the age of the earth. Nautiloids were extinct marine creatures that resembled squids living in hard, chambered shells.  Paleontologists have known about nautiloids for a long time but, until the past decade, these fossils have been thought to be extremely rare in the Grand Canyon. ...

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...

Blind But Now I See

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

Eyesight is a precious gift from God!  Clear eyesight gives us the ability to walk confidently, to read, to perform any number of detailed tasks, as well as to enjoy the colorful beauty of the world He has created.  What a blessing – yet how often we take it for granted.  Amazing as our eyesight is, we still have limitations on what we can see.  Our vision is limited to a narrow range of wavelengths.  Outside of that range, we are “blind.” We are also limited to certain...

Spotted Owls and Sacred Cows

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

Spotted owls have become the butt of many jokes, much derision, and sometimes outright hatred by conservative commentators, unemployed lumberjacks, and struggling timber-town businessmen.  The raging controversy isn’t the owls fault, though.  They are just high-profile pawns in a very heated war of worldviews. Whether the owls are even “endangered” is a matter of debate.  The “data” varies depending on the viewpoint of the researcher.  The real issue, though, is much deeper...

Creation/Evolution – The Real Conflict

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

What exactly is the point of conflict between creation and evolution? Some say there is no conflict because they think God created by evolution. Others have never thought it through. In this article I want to clarify the point at which creation and evolution are in conflict. Evolutionists believe that the first living cell somehow popped into existence and reproduced, bringing to life other cells that were somewhat different from the first cell. They say that these gave...

Danger! Cliff Ahead!

Dave Harper, AOI’s chairman of the Board, is a very perceptive man, with deep insights into spiritual truth. He also has a great sense of humor and a practical way of seeing lessons for life in everyday experiences. One day he told me a story about his brother trying to make his way home on a horse on a very dark night. He came to a spot where the horse refused to go on. After several attempts at circling the horse back to the same spot, the horse would still not proceed....

Ancient History Affirms the Bible

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

When it comes to history, most modern texts tell a similar story: man started as a hunter-gatherer, made tools, began farming, developed language, formed societies, and continues to evolve ever upward. If we assume this premise, however, we are left with a few false implications. First, if recorded history didn’t begin until the early Mesopotamian societies, anything prior is a blank slate. It also implies that early man was ignorant and lacked the desire or awareness to...
