What is truth? It is a question which bears unparalleled philosophical implications and one which has spanned the centuries of human thought and intellectual endeavor. Scripture tells of Pontius Pilate asking this same philosophical question before the crucifixion (John 18:38). Can one know truth? Is it absolute? A critical analysis reveals its nature and relation to biblical apologetics.
I just finished reading Already Compromised by Ken Ham and Greg Hall. The book is very well written; the authors are respectful, but they tell it like it is. The survey results on which the book was based are interesting and kindly surprising. I suspected that un-Biblical notions were fairly active even in Christian colleges (plenty of instances have been reported by Answers in Genesis already), but the situation is more confusing than I thought. People answered yes to…Continue
I have heard that Christians use the second law of thermodynamics as an argument against evolution.
The second law of thermodynamics expresses the existence of a quanity called the entropy of a system and states that the entropy of an isolated macroscopic system never decreases, or, equivalently, that perpetual motion machines of the second kind are impossible. (Wikipedia.)
“The Defender's Guide for Life's Toughest Questions” by ‘Ray Comfort’ from Master Books is an interesting book on apologetics. This book is written in a conversational style and it deals with topics such as:

This book is geared toward ninth graders with a foundation of Creationism vs. Evolution. The science in this book glorifies God rather than manmade ideas that are more comfortable for some to live with. The theories of evolution are challenged in this book in a way that students can easily comprehend and understand.
I was very excited to receive, “Building Blocks for Life Science, From Genes and Genesis to Science and Scripture,” by Gary Parker a former evolutionist! Even…Continue

When I first saw that Ken Ham was coming out with a book on the current state of the Christian Universities I was counting down the days until it came available. With 2 teens on the tail end of high school I was hoping that this book would give me clear direction where to send my children to school. Just give me a list, and tell me which is best, I will move mountains to get them there. The book doesn't do that, it does much better than that in making parents and students think for…Continue

Reification: attributing a concrete characteristic to something that is abstract.
I see evolutionists committing the fallacy of reification all the time. It's mostly something like: "Evolution made apes into humans." or "For jaguars, it was beneficial for it to evolve larger jaws for it to eat reptiles." or "This bacterium decided that it would be beneficial for it to join in with a nuclear envelope." or "This fossil says that this transitional link proves…Continue

I want Bible-affirming churches to celebrate a Creation Sunday on February 12, 2012, not an Evolution Sunday. You see , earlier this year, 652 congregations participated in Evolution Sunday, preaching Darwin from our very pulpits and sowing confusion in the pews over biblical authority. It gave the media the false impression that…Continue
