Psalm 14

"The fool says in his heart,

'There is no God.'"

 

Striking words, when we really look at them, aren't they?  Our arguments and discussions center around those who deny the very existence of God.  Our culture calls them "athiests."  The Bible calls them "fools."  The first is a sterilized word that manages to remain - at least somewhat - inoffensive to our sensibilities as a culture.  The second word is far from sterile - is, in fact, offensive - which is, perhaps, why…

The Best Defense

We are all more or less familiar with defending the faith.  We have read books on the subject, practiced the techniques we've heard, discussed it, etc.  At times we may be "defending the faith" on several fronts at a time; other times we seem to be waiting for the next attack. 

Quite regularly I get weary; I don't see that my attempts are doing any good.  There seems to be an endless supply of atheists, agnostics, Muslims, new agers, false ideas in otherwise Christians, and so on.  An…

The Mystery of the Volcanic Valentine

On February 14, 2011 – without envelopes, stamps or a social media network, Mt. St. Helens sent out Valentines to over 900 people!  And – it was a Valentine that most will not forget!  This Valentine came in the form of a 4.3…

How Darwin Broke Evolution

Speak to a biologist about the history of evolution and you’ll inevitably hear two very important names: Darwin and Mendel. There’s Wallace too, but he isn’t relevant to our story. Each of these men laid down a corner stone of evolutionary theory – natural selection and genetics respectively – and were contemporaries, although they never came into contact. The biologist you’re speaking to will at this point get misty eyed as he contemplates the possibilities of what would happen if they… Continue

What To Read?

Some recent discussions have prompted me to ask this question in my own life:  is it okay, as Christians and creationists, to read evolutionist material?  While I believe most people in this forum would probably affirm that, there are no doubt many who would be highly offended at the idea.  Why would we, as Christians, ever fill our heads with athiestic garbage?

 

"Ah," the other side would assert, "how can we know their arguments if we don't read them for…

Dinosaur Soft Tissue

Could soft biological tissue be preserved for millions and millions of years? Recent discoveries of soft tissue, including blood cells and blood vessels, in dinosaur fossils has the secular scientific community rethinking their views on soft tissue decomposition and preservation. [1]  These discoveries do not fit within the evolutionary paradigm. Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research writes,

Like Silver Refined. . . .

A young man on this forum, Nathan, just posted a blog about bias in the public schools.  If anyone in this forum is "on the front lines," it's our students.  Nathan, we commend you for your efforts to uphold the Word of God in such an openly hostile environment.  Thank you.

 

Psalm 12 is a remarkable Psalm (really, which ones aren't remarkable in some way?). …

Book Review : The Case of the Missing Mountain

Bottom Line first: I don’t do this very often, but I want to make this point right up front.  You do not have to be a homeschool student to enjoy and learn from this book!  Your child will enjoy “playing” with this puzzle book all the way to Grandma’s house, or when he is bored and wants something besides just another book to read. You can also use it as your primary Science text for a few weeks if you homeschool, but don’t expect it to last a whole semester!  It’s…

Worldviews in Collision - TETC Podcast

What are worldviews and how do they affect how we view the facts of the universe? We discuss this and how it relates to science on this month’s episode of the podcast. We see that the presuppositions of modern secular science exclude God from the outset, since He is supernatural, and does not fit into a naturalistic worldview. A main point of our discussion is this following quote from Dr. Scott Todd.

Even if all the data point to an intelligent…

The Year of Taking the Bible Seriously: Evolution Weekend versus Creation Weekend [Feb 11-13 2011]

Creation Sunday 2011 [Feb 13th] is only a week away and we want to make sure you're ready!

Last year’s Creation Sunday event drew a lot of interest. Coinciding with Valentine’s Day, the chosen theme for Creation Sunday 2010 was “Who Do You Love?” Applying Matthew 6:24 to the concept of trying to serve two masters or to hold two opposing authorities in your life, we noted that such a task was impossible for, as Christ warned,…

Robots and Empty Hearts

My wife and I have been watching through the newest remake of Battlestar Galactica.  While that admission alone almost certainly propels the two of us into the "Geek" status, something has just recently crossed my mind about the show and our own humanity.

 

As the characters fight this war between humans and human-like robots, one gets a real sense - almost feels sorry for - these robotic armies that are merely fighting for survival.  Though they are sophisticated…

A Brave New World

 

Recently, as I sat in a doctor’s waiting room, and having a complete lack of anything else to read, I opened a Vogue magazine.  Ordinarily I don’t go anywhere near tabloid or fashion magazines, but sitting still with nothing to do is not one of my strong points.

The article I opened up to proved to be interesting.  It was about the destruction of the family unit as the core of our society in favour of the individual.  This means, in essence, that the…

The Value of Human Life

What is the value of human life? Are we highly sophisticated animals? An intelligent species evolved over millions of years? Or something more? What does it mean to be “made in the image of God”? It is a distinction of the utmost importance. It affects the way we perceive, treat, and value life.



Man: The Animal



Professor John Rendle-Short, a Creationist pediatrician, believed…
