Is the Genesis Flood a Myth?

Largely because of the scientific community’s predominant belief in the theory of evolution and that theory’s need for great ages for the earth, the Genesis Flood is no longer considered an historical event by many in the scientific community and elsewhere. Prior to Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species, the historicity of the Genesis account had been questioned by only a few within scientific groups. Indeed, catastrophism was the most widely held theory for understanding the geologic layers observed throughout the world. Read the rest of this entry »

Richard Dawkins’ Brave New World

I think it is unfortunate that much of Evangelical Christianity is better known for its political point of view rather than what it preaches about Christ. Personally, I think it is a serious responsibility to vote, but I also believe it detracts from the Gospel to become a political activist. I don’t like politics in the pulpit, and I’ve actually voted against my local church’s position, simply because I was irritated with their attitude concerning the opposition. I believe change, if and when it comes, will come only through Christ, not political activism—especially religious political activism. Read the rest of this entry »

Evolution and the Scientific Method

The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin (Image from Google Images)

Origin science is the study of singularities, that is, non repeatable occurrences, such as deaths, natural disasters, history etc. It is the study of how things happened (originated). Operation science, on the other hand, is the study of repeatable occurrences or ‘regularities’. It is the study of how things work. Origin science may find what is called a ‘primary’ cause, such as who caused the death of (or murdered) a specific person. Operation science isn’t interested in ‘primary’ causes; it is interested in what is called a ‘secondary’ cause. For example, all objects in motion will tend to stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force—Newton’s first law of motion is an example of operation science, as are the law of gravity, computer science, medical science and mathematics.

Ape-like Man and DNA Myths

Has science proved that men have evolved from an ape-like ancestor? No, they haven’t, but to listen to their claims it would seem as though they believe they have! In fact, many people believe there actually is evidence showing the naturalist worldview is correct. Why is this so? It is because the naturalists have captured our educational institutions, and the ears of our political governors. That is quite a successful ploy in their effort to indoctrinate the world to their point of view. Even their outright failures have been used to help make them successful. For example, the Neanderthal man had been believed to be sub-human, but is considered today to be human in every sense of the word. Yet, if someone calls you a Neanderthal, what image do you get in your mind? Is the term complimentary or an insult? Read the rest of this entry »

Are Lifeforms Designed Poorly?

According to the theory of evolution, each step in the chain must be a small improvement on what came before. Nothing in life is built from scratch; from the molecule to man everything was built up through improvement on what already existed. Consequently, many evolutionists cannot appreciate good design. That is they **must not** appreciate good design in life. If they admit to good design, it must have had a Designer or a Creator. Therefore they point to things in nature that exhibit what they claim is poor design and could not originate from an intelligent Creator, so the poor design must be evidence of the accuracy of the evolutionary model.

Do Bacteria Evolve?

In 1929 British microbiologist, Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin, an antibiotic produced by the common bread mold quite by accident. It became a wonder drug that was used to treat many types of infections, including pneumonia, gonorrhea, infections caused by streptococci such as scarlet fever and strep throat and infections caused by staphylococci such as blood disorders and boils. Penicillin was widely used during World War II, but in the 1950s discoveries were made showing bacteria that was resistant to the drug. Resistance ranged from about 2% in the 1950s to around 80% in the 1990s.[1] What can be made of such activity? Are Bacteria evolving? Read the rest of this entry »

Evolution and Symbiotic Relationships

Symbiosis is defined as a relationship of mutual benefit; a close prolonged association between two or more different organisms of different species that normally benefits both members. The question as it pertains to evolution is: how could such a relationship occur, if the theory of evolution were true. In fact, Charles Darwin concluded that if it could be shown that any part of the organism of one lifeform could have been formed for the exclusive benefit of another, it would destroy his theory.[1] Read the rest of this entry »
