    Was Noah's flood geographically local or over the entire Earth?Speaking last week on an episode of the apologetics group Reasons To Believe YouTube channel, the acclaimed astrophysicist and Christian apologist stressed that when considering the flood of Noah, like any other biblical event, it is important to take into account the entirety of Scripture, not just the specific chapters in Genesis where it is recounted historically. Dr. Hugh Ross, founder and president of Reasons to Believe. | (Photo: Reasons to Believe)"2 Peter addresses it, the poetic books address it, so you really want to look at everything the Bible's got...
  • Climate change, corruption blamed for Venice flood devastation

    Much of Venice was underwater on Wednesday after the highest tide in 50 years ripped through the historic Italian city, beaching gondolas, trashing hotels and sending tourists fleeing through rapidly rising waters. Officials blamed climate change while shopkeepers on the Grand Canal raged against those who have failed to protect the UNESCO city from the high tide. They said corruption had repeatedly delayed a barrier protection system which could have prevented the disaster. "The city is on its knees," Venice mayor Luigi Brugnaro said in an interview with national broadcaster RAI.

    Early Humans Sailed to Islands October 28, 2019 | David F. Coppedge Stone tools and bones on islands show that Neanderthals and other “archaic Homo” individuals must have sailed there. Paleoanthropologists have been wiping egg of their faces for years now, after continual findings reinforce the fact that Neanderthals were just as smart and capable as we are (29 April 2019), not dumb caveman brutes like evolutionists had portrayed for a century.

    Wood Buried Under Ocean Floor Thousands of Miles at Sea October 22, 2019 | David F. Coppedge Wood chips hundreds of feet deep in ocean sediments have been found. How did they get there? Watch out for ocean trees. Geology researchers from the University of Southern California (USC) went boring into ocean sediments near India, and were surprised to find direct evidence that “Catastrophic events carry forests of trees thousands of miles to a burial at sea.” They pulled up six cores of sediment from the ocean floor a thousand feet below the surface. The cores were extracted miles apart...

    Dinosaur eggs point to the global Genesis Flood by Mike Oard 10-10-19 The first well-known discovery of dinosaur eggs was in Mongolia during the early 1920s. Then in the 1970s, Marion Brandvold found more dinosaur eggs, a few even containing embryos, in Montana, USA, at a 9-metre-high hill called ‘Egg Mountain’. This was later excavated by famous dinosaur paleontologist John Horner and colleagues. Researchers have now discovered eggs on almost all the continents of the world (figure 1). New egg sites are found each year and the estimated number of fossil dino eggs is in the millions. The best-known sites...
  • 2 deaths linked to Imelda as hundreds flooded throughout Southeast Texas

    Heavy rainfall from now-downgraded Imelda wreaked havoc Thursday for much of Southeast Texas, where officials are dealing with impassable roadways, downed trees, power outages, hundreds of high-water rescues and in one small town, a hospital evacuation. At least two deaths have been linked to the storm. A man pulled from a submerged van in east Harris County died, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a tweet. In Jefferson County, a man was electrocuted and drowned while trying to move his horse, according to authorities there. As of Thursday evening, Houston police recovered more than 200 abandoned vehicles from city roadways, and...

    Horrific 911 audio has revealed a dispatcher lecturing a distraught woman who feared for her life about driving into flood waters and putting herself in danger before telling her to 'shut up' in the moments before she drowned. Debra Stevens, 47, had been delivering newspapers in the early hours of August 24 in Fort Smith, Arkansas, when she accidentally drove into rising flood waters that swept her SUV off the road. Unable to get out of her car, Stevens made two frantic phone calls: One to her mother-in-law who was also out delivering newspapers and then to 911 to beg...

    Torrential rain hit southwestern Japan on Wednesday morning, prompting local governments to instruct thousands of people to evacuate as rivers overflowed and at least two people were left dead in what the weather agency called an “unprecedented downpour.” In Saga Prefecture, in the Kyushu region, Saga Station was flooded and a number of vehicles were seen submerged. Landslides were confirmed in the city of Takeo and rivers in Ogi and Imari overflowed, flooding nearby farm fields. A man was confirmed dead after being found in a minicar that had been swept away by floodwaters on a road in Takeo, while...

    Deep-Sea Dinosaur Fossil Buries Evolution Tim Clarey, Ph.D., and James J. S. Johnson, J.D., Th.D. Aug. 1, 2019 Oil and gas explorations have found sedimentary deposits so massive and so far offshore that secular science has no satisfactory explanation for their occurrence.1 Marine rock exposures have also revealed numerous land fossils washed great distances out to sea.2,3 Drilling off the coast of Norway has even pulled up a core containing dinosaur bone.4 Although these discoveries baffle uniformitarian scientists, they are not an issue for Flood geologists.

    A swimming school of fish fossilized in real time by Phil Robinson Published: 18 July 2019 (GMT+10) A limestone shale slab from the Green River Formation, USA, has incredibly ‘captured’ a mass of 257 fish swimming together in a school.1 The fish, each just under 1 in (2.5 cm) long, belong to an extinct species, Erismatopterus levatus. Just before being fossilised they were swimming in the same direction. Swimming together in a school is a dynamic process and this slab amazingly preserves, in ‘freeze frame’ as it were, this coordinated collective motion. Such discoveries are rare. As pointed out in...

    It may seem a bit ironic but the owners of Kentucky's Noah's ark attraction are suing their insurers over damage caused by flooding. In a federal lawsuit, the owners of the Ark Encounter are asking for a $1 million settlement after the attraction's insurers, Allied World Assurance Co. Holdings of Switzerland and three other insurance companies, refused to cover damage after heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on its access road, the Courier Journal reports. Opened in 2016, the 510-foot-long wooden ark has been a popular attraction in Williamstown, Kentucky. The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages...

    How valleys and canyons formed during Noah’s Flood by Micheal Oard Continental valleys and canyons come in all sizes and shapes. Some are V-shaped valleys, and others U-shaped canyons. Some are shallow and others have tall vertical walls, like the Grand Canyon. We rarely observe valley and canyon formation taking place today and then only in association with a flooding event. Therefore, uniformitarian1 theories about valley and canyon formation are not built on observational science but instead upon their assumptions about the past.

    PLEASANTON, Neb. (KHGI) - Battered by life’s storms, ranchers find relief. Ohioans bring hay to Nebraska shows that in rural America, even those 800 miles away can be neighbors. It’s been a rough season for young cattle producers. “It's just, it's hard. It's hard to come back from this,” said Bailey Dittmar, a high school senior from Amherst who raises cattle with her family. Experienced ranchers like Ken Huryta of Ravenna have never seen flooding like this, that required him to wade out and save calves, while using a horse to coax cattle to jump a ditch to get to...

    Tremendous erosion of continents during the Recessive Stage of the Flood by Michael J. Oard Posted 3-29-2019 on CMI website. The Recessive Stage of the Flood was a time of intense continental erosion. The erosional debris formed the continental margin—a continuous wedge of mostly compacted sediments surrounding the continents. If we can determine which part of this wedge is composed primarily of detritus eroded during the Recessive Stage, some later cementing to sedimentary rock, then estimating the volume of those sediments and rocks could provide a rough quantitative estimate of material eroded from the continents. At present, a total value...

    Subduction Was Essential for the Ice Age BY TIM CLAREY, PH.D. * | THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2019 Creation meteorologist Michael Oard has written extensively about what it takes to make an ice age. The first requirement is much warmer oceans than we have today, which would provide the extra evaporation needed for heavy winter snowfall. The second requirement is cooler summers that allow snow to build up from year to year and eventually transform into thick ice sheets.1

    WINSLOW, Neb./CHICAGO (Reuters) - Midwestern farmers have been gambling they could ride out the U.S.-China trade war by storing their corn and soybeans anywhere they could - in bins, plastic tubes, in barns or even outside. Now, the unthinkable has happened. Record floods have devastated a wide swath of the Farm Belt across Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and several other states. Early estimates of lost crops and livestock are approaching $1 billion in Nebraska alone. With more flooding expected, damages are expected to climb much higher for the region.

    There was no let up in sight for devastating floods across the U.S. Central Plains states that have already killed two people, torn apart homes and businesses and cut off small towns, forecasters said on Sunday. Water levels were expected to rise through the week, according to the National Weather Service, prompting evacuations in communities along the Missouri River on the Nebraska and Iowa border, as well as the Elkhorn and Platte rivers in Nebraska. “We’re looking at widespread flooding that continues until at least early next week in the Plains and Midwest region,” said meteorologist Marc Chenard with the...

The agency said there has also been a $400 million impact to livestock. This does not account for future losses because of delayed or canceled planting. FEMA individual...

    As floodwaters continued to devastate parts of the state on Friday, communities north and northwest of the Omaha metro area have braced for more damage. Flooding has already been blamed for at least one death and two people are believed to be missing as of Friday afternoon. About a dozen injuries have been reported, including to first responders. Homes are underwater and roads impassable. People displaced by the waters have taken shelter in hospitals, schools and other community buildings. Residents across the region are being evacuated as levees break or rivers overflow their banks. Rita Argintean was one of many...

    Are Neandertals pre-Flood people? Published: 2 February 2019 (GMT+10) Markus B. asks: I am in contact with someone who has read your article Neanderthal genome like ours. He does not agree with what you have written in your article,and thinks instead that Neanderthal man lived before the Flood and completely died out in the Flood (he also thinks Homo erectus, Homo heidelbergensis and Homo denisova died out in the flood). He argues that the genome of the Neanderthal man and modern man mixed already before the flood, and that this would explain the findings.
