  • Bible Mystery: What Terrible Thing Did Ham Do to Drunken, Naked Noah?

    Yesterday a friend and I were talking about some of the weird, perplexing things in the Bible, swapping quotes and links to try to make sense of a strange passage. I decided I’d throw it out there today and see what others thought.Genesis 9:18-27 describes how after Noah lands the ark and makes a covenant with God he plants an orchard, invents wine, and gets drunk. Then his son Ham “saw the nakedness of his father” and told his brothers, who then covered their eyes so they didn’t see him, but went in and covered him. Afterwards Noah curses Ham’s...
  • Gods Work? A new poll suggests Americans arent so confident in their creationism.

    Slate ^ | 12/08/2014 | By William Saletan
    In a dozen polls taken from 1982 to 2014, Gallup has asked Americans to choose among three views of evolution. One view is that humans “developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God guided this process.” Another view is that humans “developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God had no part in this process.” The third option is that “God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years or so.” In that three-decade span, the young-Earth creationist option has always...

    Singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel says he is not anti-Israel, but that he is against occupation. Gabriel, who originally rose to fame with the band Genesis, contributed songs to a new compilation album titled 2 Unite All, proceeds from which go to humanitarian organizations aiding Palestinian Arabs in Gaza, reports i24news. I am certain that Israelis and Palestinians will both benefit from a two-state solution based on the 1967 borders, Gabriel said in a statement quoted by i24news. We have watched Palestinians suffer for too long, especially in Gaza.
  • Did Adam and Eve Really Exist?

    Crisis Magazine ^ | November 24, 2014 | DENNIS BONNETTE
    Pure myth! That is today’s typical view of a literal Adam and Eve. Yet, contrary to current skepticism, a real Adam and Eve remain credible—both in terms of Catholic doctrine and sound natural science.By calling the Genesis story a “myth,” people avoid saying it is mere “fantasy,” that is, with no foundation in reality at all. While rejecting a literal first pair of human parents for all mankind, they hope to retain some “deeper” truth about an original “sinful human condition,” a “mythic” meaning. They think that the latest findings in paleoanthropology and genetics render a literal pair of...

    Trees Really Are 'Pleasant to the Sight' by Brian Thomas, M.S. * Genesis 2:9 records one of the Lord's original intentions for creating trees, saying, "Out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." A new study has quantified just how pleasant to the sight trees can be, inadvertently confirming the truthfulness of this ancient biblical passage.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 07/28/2014 | Philip Klein
    Polling consistently shows overwhelmingly support for Israel among American evangelicals, one of the factors that explain why the modern Republican Party has become so supportive of Israel. Critics have attempted to dismiss this support, however, by insinuating that its actually rooted in end times prophecies. David Brog, director of the 1.75 million strong Christians United for Israel, said that this couldnt be further from the truth. Any one who says that evangelical support for Israel is all about somehow speeding the end times, bringing Jesus back, [and killing or converting Jews] ... any one who does that is showing their...

    Coach is Right ^ | 4/11/14 | Michael D. Shaw
    A large budget, plenty of FX, and familiar biblical source material cant make up for an awful script, and an overall twisted concept from helmer Darren Aronofsky. Ginned up by the controversy gained by its less than faithful adherence to the bible story, Paramount/Regency should see brisk business, at least at first. The Noah saga comprises Genesis 5:28 through 9:29, and runs around 2300 words. There is little dialog, of course, and it is all spoken by Godinexplicably called the Creatorin this movie. Yes, Aronofsky is an atheist, but a Creator with supernatural powers sounds a lot like God to...

    Leading creationist Ken Ham, who recently debated Bill Nye, says that the new blockbuster, starring Russell Crowe, is an insult to Christians: "Ultimately, there is barely a hint of biblical fidelity in this film. It is an unbiblical, pagan film from its start" As a Creationist and also a believer in the historical account of Noah and the Flood, I agree with atheist Darren Aronofskys statement about his just-released film Noah: It is the least biblical of Bible-themed films. Any other agreement I have with the filmmakers take on the book of Genesis and its account of Noah ends right...

    Expensive biblical epics havent been a staple of Hollywood for decades, but this week saw the release of the first trailer of Noah which will hit theaters in early 2014. Enter controversy. Some like J.W. Wartick have written on concerns over possible divergence from the Biblical story. Fair enough, but I dont have a problem with divergence, if it is in the sense Brian Godawa describes: " there is nothing wrong with engaging in creative license, whether it is magical seeds or six-armed Watchers, or even Noah as a warrior.

    Genesis Science Is Practical, Not Just Academic by James J. S. Johnson, J.D., Th.D. * It doesnt really matter, in the real world, what you believe about creation or evolution, the college student glibly challenged me. Whether the evolutionists are right or whether Genesis is right makes no practical difference in how science works or in how people live their lives. With a grin and a wave of his hand, the sophomore dismissed the real-world relevance of biblical creation as if it were no more practical than evolutionary myths. Was he correct?

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 2/5/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    Many understandings of Original Sin, the sin committed by Adam and Eve tend to describe the sin as the eating of a forbidden fruit. While this description is not inaccurate, it is incomplete and many rightly wonder as to how and why all this trouble came from the mere eating of a piece of fruit.It may be helpful therefore to consider the Sin of Adam more richly. While the eating of the fruit is the external act, like any human act, it proceeds from the heart and admits of some complexity or stages.Perhaps a quote from the Book of James...

    Remembering The Genesis Flood by John C. Whitcomb December 8, 2010 A word fitly spoken has incredible power (Proverbs 25:11). Burdened by the rampant disregard for Gods Word, two young men collaborated to write a book called simply The Genesis Flood. Fifty years later their shout still reverberates round the world. In February 1961 a small publisher in New JerseyPresbyterian and Reformed Publishing Companybrought into this world a 518-page, somewhat ponderous, volume entitled The Genesis Food: The Biblical Record and Its Scientific Implications. The co-authors were a little-known theologian (myself) and a hydraulic engineer, Henry M. Morris. Little did we...

    In the blog over the past few days we have discussed the Genesis account, evolutionary theory and how these can be reconciled with Catholic thought and teaching. At one level, the genre for the Genesis accounts must be taken into consideration wherein figurative language is sometimes used to confer the sacred truths that God alone created everything out of nothing. Further, that God oversaw every aspect of creation with intelligence, and purpose, and that he created everything out of nothing, each according to its kind. However the genre, or literary form, of Genesis  does not purport to be of nature of a...

    The Miracle of Faith (Genesis 15:1-6; Hebrews 11:1-16)Sometimes I think about the impossibility of faith. I mean, if you stop and think about all the things that are working against faith, its amazing that any of us have it. To believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ and all that that involves, to trust in the goodness and the promises of God, in spite of all that would cause us to not believe--its simply amazing. And so today were going to talk about The Miracle of Faith. Consider our Old Testament lesson for today, from Genesis 15. It relates a...

    The Oxford English Dictionary defines "poison" as "a substance that is capable of causing the illness or death of a living organism when introduced or absorbed." The legal definition of the term is "any product or substance that can harm someone if it is used in the wrong way, by the wrong person, or in the wrong amount." The medical condition of poisoning is even broader: It can be caused by substances that are not even legally required to carry the label "poison." Therefore, can food become poisonous? Of course it can if it is infected, tampered with or altered...

    Boffins have discovered that "lethally hot" ocean temperatures kept the Earth devoid of life for millions of years after the mass extinction that occurred 250 million years ago. The global wipeout that ended the Permian era, before dinosaurs, wiped out nearly all of the world's species. Mass extinctions like these in Earth's history are usually followed by a "dead zone", a period of tens of thousands of years before new species crop up. But the early Triassic dead zone lasted millions of years, not thousands. Boffins now reckon that the extra-long five million year dead zone was caused by screaming...

    Robert V. McCabe, M.Div., Th.M., Th.D., earned his Th.D. degree at Grace Theological Seminary in 1985 in Old Testament Languages and Literature. He joined the faculty of Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary in 1983 as head of the Old Testament department, and he became Registrar in 1987. One of the OT classes he teaches at DBTS is Biblical Creationism, and he has conducted several seminars on biblical creation in local churches in the Detroit area. I first heard about Dr Bob McCabe upon seeing a very thorough defence of a straightforward understanding of Genesis, including in-depth studies of the original Hebrew.1...

    Phil Collins had to be helped out of an awards ceremony after being hit by crippling pains all over his body. The fragile pop legend was due to present a gong to Ringo Starr but the lingering effects of a spinal injury struck and he was forced to leave, supported by two aides. And Who guitarist Pete Townshend also joined the list of crock stars as he was spotted wearing two hearing aids to help combat deafness and tinnitus caused by years of loud music. Former Genesis drummer Collins, 60, chatted to stars including Bob Geldof ahead of presenting Ringo...

    It's exotic and beautiful, a 15-foot tall plant with clusters of dainty white flowers and human-sized leaves -- resembling, it is often said, Queen Anne's Lace on steroids. But giant hogweed is an invasive species that is spreading around much of the northern United States. Even worse, its sap is extremely poisonous, with the potential to cause blistering burns and even blindness. Now that the giant hogweed's flowering season is here again, experts are taking the opportunity to draw people's attention to the plant -- for the sake of human health as well as for the health of the environment....
  • Phil Collins Retires For Good From Music, Cites Injuries and Hearing Loss

    PHIL Collins has quit music for good after developing hearing problems, a dislocated vertebra and nerve damage in his hands from his 40-year career playing drums. The Easy Lover hitmaker also thinks people are sick of him and his music. Its a good time to stop, said the star, who has sold more than 150 million records. I look at the MTV Music Awards and I think: I cant be in the same business as this. I dont really belong to that world and I dont think anyones going to miss me. Im much happier just to write myself out...

    Ah, boy meets girl. Its instant chemistry. Shes cute, hes funny, and both of them like the ocean. Hes not like the other boys. She isnt bossy. After multiple makeout sessions and further praise by friends about how good looking they are together, marriage is proposed, accepted, and accomplished. This story is like a great many that occur every single day. Unfortunately, the two of them arent as similar as they thought. They based their relationship on the physical rather than enduring principles of value and belief. Constant friction often results. Divorce may occur. The most frequent outcome is children...
