|Were Stone Tools Primitive?|
|Fri, 15 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
One of the most persistent rumors of popular evolutionary mythology is the concept of a primitive Stone Age. While serious evolutionists do not view such a time in the same way as the popular thinking, particularly in the media, the idea that there were early human societies that had no technology, save the ability to use rocks, is deeply ingrained.
|A Convention of Light|
|Thu, 14 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
If you fire a beam of laser light at the Moon, how long will it take to get there?
At first, some might suggest that this is a relatively easy problem. Speed equals distance divided by time, so surely we can calculate how long the light will take. But do we really know how fast the light travels from Earth to Moon? Creationist astrophysicist Dr. Jason Lisle suggests that we don’t.

It was, they say, the “Great Dying” supposedly 250 million years ago. 57% of all land-dwelling vertebrates became extinct. Yet amidst the death and destruction of this event, a new group of animals arose. We call them the dinosaurs.
|Eggs and Evolution|
|Tue, 12 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
“The evolution of the amniotic egg was key to vertebrates leaving the oceans and colonizing the land and air.” So claimed a recent article on the evolution of the egg. The article noted that there are different shaped eggs among birds. Researchers conducted a statistical study of the eggs produced by 1,400 species of bird.

|Jolly Hockey Sticks|
|Fri, 08 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
The world’s most infamous hockey stick was probably the graph produced for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 1998. The purpose of the graph was to show how global temperatures had changed over time and what had caused these changes. Over the last millennium, the graph showed a steady but gentle increase in temperature until about 1900 when the graph showed a sharp increase.
|Trinity Curriculum Model|
|Thu, 07 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
As Christians, and especially as Christian parents, many of us have negative comments to make about what happens in school science lessons. In so many areas, it is often easier to criticize and break down than to build up something new. Many years ago, I came across a fascinating yet simple curriculum model idea that would be of considerable help in many Christian education situations.
|Abel Saved by Faith|
|Wed, 06 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
We have talked before about Cain and Abel, and we have seen how Cain’s offering was rejected because it was his attempt to get right with God by his own power. We have also seen how Abel’s offering was acceptable because it was the necessary blood sacrifice to atone for sin.
|How Will They Know?|

Recently, I took a group of 6th Grade children and their teachers around the Hummocks’ Trail as part of their homeschool co-op’s fieldtrip to the area near the Mount St. Helen volcano. It was a hot sunny day. The slopes of many of the hummocks were covered in wild strawberries. The heady scent was strong and delicious in the air!

Evolutionists assume that evolution happens by increases in genetic information. This, they claim, happens by mutations making more information. We should analyze how this might happen.
|How Nature Selects|
|Fri, 01 Dec 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
Evolutionists often use a language all of their own. Frequently that language involves reification. Reification is a logical fallacy whereby an abstract concept is treated as if it were something real or concrete. Evolutionists frequently refer to selection of genetic information by nature – the so-called Natural Selection. Nature is an abstract concept.
|Dinosaurs and Feathers|
|Thu, 30 Nov 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
I am a long-time fan of the BBC science fiction show Doctor Who, having watched it since the mid-1960s when the show was in black and white with no computer graphics and Daleks were upturned trash cans with sink plungers attached. One of my favorite episodes of the modern era was entitled Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. The title said it all.
|Sea Level During the Flood|
|Wed, 29 Nov 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
“You can’t possibly believe that there was a worldwide Flood. If the Ark was floating above Mount Everest, the air would be so thin that they would not be able to breathe.”
This objection to the Flood is a very common one that I hear frequently. It is also one that is most easily disproved. In fact, I am always very surprised that so many people think this must be a valid argument.
|A Lesson from the Beekeeper|
|Tue, 28 Nov 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
When I was in my twenties, I had a friend whose father, Peter, kept bees. One day, he invited me to help collect honey. I was fascinated by the paraphernalia that goes with this activity – the costume, the hood, the smoker, and the hives. Peter had ten hives. His bees were very distinctive. They had a deep brown abdomen with a single yellow stripe across the middle of it.
|Evolution Lacks Logic|
|Mon, 27 Nov 2017 06:00:00 +0000|
Logic can sometimes be a little difficult to follow without seeing pictures. But if we take this carefully, it should make sense. There is a type of logical sequence called a syllogism, where two premises are made, followed by a conclusion. The conclusion should be based on those premises. For example:
Premise 1: If it is raining, the streets are wet.
Premise 2: It is raining.
