I am completely relaxed. I have my work under control. I have a cup of coffee with me. And Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony is playing in the background.
Then there is an ugly sound. It is a pinging sound, and it comes from my smartphone. It is a notification.
|Could Poison Frogs Poison Themselves?|
|Tue, 20 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0000|
Why are poison frogs poisonous? Clearly their toxins are very harmful indeed to predators. For this reason, evolutionists would assume that those frogs which produce toxins are likely to be fitter to survive in the process of natural selection.
|Ol' Blue Eyes|
|Mon, 19 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0000|
It was singer Frank Sinatra who was known as Ol' Blue Eyes because of the piercing color of his irises. But now evolutionary scientists are suggesting that those, who, like me, share Sinatra's eye color, might also share a common ancestor. Frank might be my cousin!
|Hurricanes: Are They Our Fault?|
|Fri, 16 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0000|
One leading left-wing UK newspaper headlined a report on Hurricane Harvey with these words:
"It's a fact: climate change made Hurricane Harvey more deadly."
|The Most Beautiful Verse in Genesis|
|Thu, 15 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0000|
Genesis 1:1 is pretty cool. It tells us that God made the world, the universe, and everything from nothing. It is a verse that gives the lie to all the great philosophies of the modern age. Yet, if I had to choose what I thought was the most beautiful verse in Genesis, that first verse would be close, but not the one.
|The Floodwaters Rise|
|Wed, 14 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0000|
Imagine that the tide went out much farther than it had ever done before. Imagine that you lived in a world full of evil, but this day it seemed like something big was about to happen. One man and his family had been building an enormous vessel while warning people of the coming judgment of God. You had joined in the laughter with everyone else.
|The Gods Who Did Not Create|
|Tue, 13 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0000|
One of the fundamental lessons we learn from Scripture is that there is only one God. There are, however, a lot of false gods. In biblical times, these would often have been idols of wood, stone, or metal. But there are idols all around us today which demand our worship. These could be anything that people have put in the place of God.
|Covered with Pitch|
|Mon, 12 Mar 2018 05:00:00 +0000|
The Ark was made of wood, so it had to be waterproofed. The most suitable type of waterproofing would be a hydrophobic substance, such as oil or grease. So it was coated inside and out with pitch. But what actually is pitch? In modern parlance, this refers to an oil fraction. But here some people raise a problem. If pitch is an oil fraction, then do we not assume that oil was produced during the Flood?
|The Waters Above|
|Fri, 09 Mar 2018 06:00:00 +0000|
The Scripture tells us that "God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse". The word translated as "expanse", or, in some versions, as "firmament", is raqia. This word is related to the concept of stretching out, rather like metal being beaten with a hammer. As such, it refers to the entire universe and not just to the atmosphere.
|Fountains of the Deep|
|Thu, 08 Mar 2018 06:00:00 +0000|
The Flood began with two geophysical events – the bursting forth of Fountains of the Great Deep and the opening of the Windows of Heaven. But what could these events have actually looked like?
|The Land of the Dinosaurs|
|Wed, 07 Mar 2018 06:00:00 +0000|
Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the large dinosaur book that I had as a child was the large number of pictures showing large sauropods walking through forests of giant ferns, eating their leaves. My child-like trust in the abilities of scientists led me to assume that there must have been some way for these clever adults to know what the habitat and living conditions of these dinosaurs were.
|The End of a Space Mission|
|Tue, 06 Mar 2018 06:00:00 +0000|
The Cassini-Huygens Mission, which ended in 2017, was, by any stretch of the imagination, a remarkable human achievement. Launched on October 15, 1997, the craft was active for nearly 20 years before its final descent into the oblivion of Saturn's gravity on September 15, 2017.
|Confidence in God's Word|
|Mon, 05 Mar 2018 06:00:00 +0000|
A lot of our difficulties with the text in Genesis could be resolved if we would only have confidence in God's word.
|Study Shows Americans Are Spiritually Hungry|
|Fri, 02 Mar 2018 06:00:00 +0000|
A poll conducted by George Gallup reveals some alarming trends in Americans' religious thinking. First, the good news is that more than 80 percent of Americans desire to grow spiritually. Secondly, Christian religion continues to show wide popularity, with church attendance remaining steady over the last half century.
|Lima Bean Self Defense|
|Thu, 01 Mar 2018 06:00:00 +0000|
You may not think of plants as being intelligent on any level since it appears that they just sort of sit in the soil and grow. However, we have done a few Creation Moments programs on plants that try to poison or repel a predator. Now we will see that the lima bean employs an even more sophisticated defense strategy that not only warns surrounding lima beans of the attack, but also calls in defenders.
