“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”

Posted on Oct 15, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  How would you respond to this: “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” First of all…what makes it extraordinary? “The term ‘extraordinary’ is subjective, and entirely dependent on your starting assumptions.” Second, “insist that a reasonable and fair standard of evidence be applied—the same standards that are used in other areas.” Third, don’t expect “that the skeptic will suddenly ‘see the light’ just because you mention things like early independent...

The Evidence of the Supernatural is Inescapable!!

Posted on Sep 17, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  ““The only way to avoid becoming a metaphysician is to say nothing,” wrote the distinguished American philosopher E. A. Burtt nearly a hundred years ago in his classic and frequently republished Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Science. Language, conscience, rationality, will, freedom, meaning, personal identity, and purpose — the distinctively human attributes — have a non-natural, metaphysical character that has been apparent to wise and reflective persons ever...

Celebrating Darwin to Acknowledging a Designer!

Posted on Sep 12, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “German paleontologist Günter Bechly, former curator of the Stuttgart State Museum of Natural History, is a world expert on fossilized dragonflies. He has discovered more than 170 new species, and 11 new genera have been named after him. To prepare for an exhibit celebrating Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday, Bechly read intelligent design books—and became an ID proponent.” In response to the time required to make evolution possible, Bechly says: “A mathematician is...

Dismissing without Digging!

Posted on Aug 27, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  This is what we are dealing with – very simple articles that dismiss the evidence from science without even digging into the arguments. Notice how they say right off the bat: “In fact, dinosaurs died out 66 million years ago,” – this is a statement about the past, which is based on assumptions. It is an assumption not a fact....

The Age of Information Overload and Misinformation??

Posted on Aug 23, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  How do we handle this age of information overload and misinformation?? We need to be discerning!! We need to make sure to keep the gospel and its transformative power as the main thing – above and beyond any other ideologies! And “we can’t promote an ‘us vs. them’ attitude when talking to believers who are not creationists—we should be working to persuade them.” “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that by testing you...

Funny Addition to Some Significant Evidence!

Posted on Aug 15, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Did you hear about the scientific paper (explained here: https://phys.org/news/2018-05-gene-survey-reveals-facets-evolution.html) that showed “that 90 percent of animal life, genetically speaking, is roughly the same age”? How do we correctly interpret that scientific evidence? Notice that that is continually the question that we have to ask – and that shows that everyone is forced to say that their assumptions affect how the data is interpreted. Note the following...

A lot of evidence or not?

Posted on Aug 13, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Scientists claim that they have found 360+ fossil specimens of Australopithecus – that is Lucy and her family. Lucy has been regarded as good evidence of evolution from ape-like creatures to humans, but it looks like Lucy and her family have been taken out of the human evolutionary tree – meaning that they are simply a side branch and not in our lineage. “The australopithecines known over the last several decades…are now irrevocably removed from a place in the evolution of...

Does the age of the Earth matter to Christians?

Posted on Aug 1, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“This question implies the Earth’s age, like its shape, can be directly measured—well it can’t, it’s a category-mistake.3 Earth’s age can only be inferred and depends upon the worldview of the investigator. The philosophical assumptions behind these dating techniques invalidate any supposed claim for rocks being reliable clocks, so are not “proven results of science”” See more about this question and 9 other questions here:...

Evangelism must confront the errors of the culture

Posted on Jul 25, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“Nearly every line in Paul’s Areopagus address seems tailored to the cultural errors and misconceptions of the Greeks. This made his message very relevant to them because it addressed particular areas where they needed correction, and where they needed to repent. Some think it is offensive or unloving to engage in this type of dialogue, but provided we do this “with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15), it is actually one of the most loving ways we can engage with...

Is it really neutral…??

Posted on Jul 18, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

We couldn’t agree more: “State education is never neutral, and today it is usually evolutionary and secular (i.e. atheistic). At best, the truth claims of Christianity are relegated to subjective opinion, and at worst they are contradicted entirely.” How can we at AOI help you? How about some teaching for you and your group? Hosting an Event Read more here too:...

“None” – Did they really say that?!

Posted on Jun 18, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Researcher Mary Schweitzer discovered original soft-tissue in Dinosaur bone that had not rotted away or turned to stone. She chronicled her struggle to share this data with others here: “I had one reviewer tell me that he didn’t care what the data said, he knew what I was finding wasn’t possible. I wrote back and said, “Well, what data would convince you?” And he said, “None.”” Source: Barry Yeoman, “Schweitzer’s Dangerous Discovery” Discover Magazine: April 2006, p....

Summer Break is Here!

Posted on Jun 4, 2019 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Summer Break is here – with that being said, this is very interesting and insightful: “Our Culture tells us to be happy, but then evaluates our lives with the razor-thin criteria of financial success and physical beauty. It is no wonder—tragically—that more and more people are taking that razor and cutting themselves with it.” USA Today has an interesting take on the apparent link between American culture and the rise of depression and suicide. Summer break is...
