There Went Up A Mist From The Earth...

I'm sure there's already been plenty of discussion about whether there was rain before the Flood.  Some people think Genesis 2:5-6 rules out the possibility of rain before the Flood; others don't…Continue

Creationism and Agriculture

Few areas of science so clearly show evidence of God's providential hand as agriculture.  From the enormous potential created within food crops, to the abundant evidence of adaptive variation demonstrated by pests, the fields provide plentiful opportunity for us to study God's creation.Sadly but predictably, Agricultural science is the target of many evolutionist attacks.  Literature, education, and even advertisements tout "evolution in action" and glorify "mother nature" or humanistic…See More

Adam's Agriculture

Do you ever pause when reading about Adam eating bread by the sweat of his brow and wonder what kind of cereal crops that bread was made of? When Cain brought of the fruit of the ground, what fruit did he bring?Many of the crops we raise can be found in some form or other growing wild, but others (maize being the most obvious) don't exist without human intervention. Is it possible that Adam ate corn on the cob, or did later folks really modify teosinte as we're always told?This could probably…See More

Extremely Interesting: My review of Buddy Davis' newest DVD

Posted on October 8, 2013 at 8:37pm 0 Comments

I'm sure most of y'all have at least heard of Buddy Davis (dinosaur sculptor, singer, songwriter, etc.); hopefully you have also seen the first two installments of his Amazing Adventures series, I Dig Dinosaurs and Swamp Man.  Recently we procured a copy of the latest installment, Extreme Caving.  Now, as good as the first two episodes were, I wasn't sure whether the third could maintain that level of greatness.  After seeing it, I have to think this is the best one…

Darwin Day?

Posted on February 5, 2012 at 1:34pm 3 Comments

Next Sunday, February 12th, is international Darwin Day.  Websites and museums are excited about this time to celebrate Charles Darwin's birthday, his life, his work, his ideas.  Events are being planned, such as screenings of shows like "Where Did We Come From", special exhibits designed to show children how bird beaks adapt and prove evolution, and all kinds of other fun stuff.  Can there be a more fun time for humanists?

Strangely, humanists don't get this excited about the Lord's…

Musings on the Mounds

Posted on December 11, 2011 at 6:09pm 2 Comments

I was recently in west Tennessee for a funeral, and while there we visited the Pinson Mounds State Archeological Area, near Jackson.  These "Indian mounds" were constructed by the people archeologists refer to as the Hopewell culture around two thousand years ago.  One mound is 72 feet tall, the second highest in the U.S. 

Among all the interesting thoughts I had, three stood out.

First, the mysterious mound group is one of the many examples of tall structures built by the…

"Just curious-why Hercules?"
From Noah to Hercules? More for poetic reasons than anything else.  It was fairly arbitrary.  I liked how it bridged the gap between the Jewish and the Roman.  I liked how it connected the lineage of the first man on earth to the hero that was, by nearly every account, a man on the earth.  I suppose I could have done From Noah to Zeus, or From Noah to You, but those didn't feel right.  The real reason, though, is that I like my icon.  Now that I think of it, maybe that's what you're asking about.  If you are, my icon is for my book.

David, thanks for the kind words about my article on the Mermaids mockumentary. It was fun working on it, but sort of painful to watch the whole program.

Thank you. I was asking Answers in Genesis if they were ever going to make a forum, and they said "No", but they referred me here. I'm already enjoying the conversations here. I like that most of the members here are Creationists. I've seen a couple of Evolutionary posts, but not near as many as other sites. On Christianforums.com, it seems like Christians are the minority sometimes. How weird! Anyway thanks for the welcome.

Hi David,

Thanks for clarifying. There are several commentators who share your thoughts on the subject. I believe they are mistaken, and I dealt with it at length in my thesis. It's true that the spies are not the most credible witnesses, but remember that Joshua and Caleb were with them, and they never disputed seeing the Nephilim. In fact, the narrative reporting of their journey earlier in the chapter tells us that they saw the sons of Anak (Ahiman, Talmai, Sheshai) in Kirjath Arba. Then we are told in a parenthetical statement in Num. 13:33 (likely an insertion by the author or later editor (Joshua?)) that the Anakim are of the Nephilim. If Nephilim means "giants," which is very likely, then there is no problem with calling the Anakim "Nephilim," since they were giants as well. The fallen angel position also provides a good explanation as to how there were Nephilim living in the promised land after the Flood, but the Sethite and Royalty positions cannot answer this (other than to say that the spies were mistaken or lied). Finally, the word used for the spies "evil" report does not imply false content, but grave intentions. It's the same word used to describe Joseph's report to Jacob about his brothers. Anyway, I start rambling on this subject and end up saying more than I intend to, so I'll leave it at that for now. Thanks for adding to the conversation. God bless!

Thanks David. While I am quite convinced of the position I hold, I think it's important for people to keep this issue in perspective. Too often people get worked up, either in defense of their own position or in attacking another position. My chief concern on the issue is that we remain faithful to the text and form our thinking about this subject from the text rather than imposing our theology on the text - the same is true for all passages. Since the article did not favor one position over another, was there something in there that you think is inaccurate?
