    Dinosaurs in Noah’s vineyard by David Lewis The carving (see image at right), which appears to show two dinosaurs, is on an outside wall of the bell-tower of a fourteenth century church in the Republic of Georgia. Holy Trinity Church (also known as Tsminda Sameba) is on Mount Gergeti, near Stephantsminda village, in the Mount Kazbegi area—close to the borders with North Ossetia and Ingushetia. When I visited this area in 2006 and saw the carvings, I asked a Georgian cleric at the church what they depicted. He commented that they looked like dinosaurs, and he had no idea when...

    The Lake Missoula flood—clues for the Genesis Flood by Michael J. Oard It is difficult to comprehend fully the immense, almost unimaginable power of the Genesis Flood—because of its sheer size. Its vast volume of water would affect the rates of erosion and sediment deposition in ways not comparable to anything happening today. Its retreat would form unique patterns over the entire earth. However, although present-day floods cannot compare, there was a flood large enough to give us a tiny glimpse as to what a gigantic global-scale flood could accomplish in a short time. It is the Lake Missoula flood,1...
  • Majority of Biology Teachers Hesitant About Evolution

    03/10/2015 8:20:02 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 139 replies
    Secular scientists are at a loss over how to get their favorite origins story, Darwinian evolution, a more confident presence in schools.After nearly a century of one-sided control of education on origins, Darwinian scientists shouldn’t be faced with this dilemma. After all, their own theory presupposes that human beings are material entities that can be conditioned like other animals. And yet, despite a near total exposure to Darwinian evolution in textbooks, museums, educational TV – and often in the general culture, such as in many sci-fi movies – a substantial majority of the public doesn’t buy the completely materialistic...

Casey Luskin January 19, 2015 4:36 PM | Permalink A student emails me to ask how long it will be before the "tide turns from Darwinism to ID." He follows the debate over intelligent design and is aware that the Darwin lobby's rhetoric typically fails to address ID's actual arguments (which are scientific in nature), instead focusing on personal attacks or trying to claim ID is religion. This student feels it is obvious that ID has the upper hand in the argument, but wonders when...

    Creation Conversion: The Turning Point Last month we ran our first Creation Conversion article, in which ICR zoologist Frank Sherwin described his shift from adhering to a billions-of-years evolutionary model to believing in biblical creation, which holds that the universe is only thousands of years old. A scientist with a similar experience, nuclear physicist Dr. Vernon Cupps, came to ICR from Fermilab, America’s particle physics laboratory.1 He describes his creation conversion as follows: "I came to believe in a young-earth view of creation when I took the time to investigate the actual scriptural, observational, and experimental evidences for both the...

    ...On average, human mitochondrial DNA sequences differ at 10 positions. The biblical model predicts a range of diversity that accurately captures this value. In contrast, the evolutionary timescale (and, by extension, the old-earth creation timescale) predicts levels of genetic diversity that are 12–29 times off  the real DNA differences that we see today (124–290 mitochondrial DNA differences versus 10).

These findings present problems for old-earth theories that are based on sluggish magma movement. Key factors in the study were...

And because the strange creature is said to be both super-sensitive and super-moody, the woman chosen to satisfy his physical needs will have to be, in the words of one researcher, "exceptionally patient and understanding, willing to put up with his bizarre and often extreme moods, and also able to endure his strange, sawdust-like smell."

    This book describes Dr. Martin's personal journey from an evolution-trained scientist to a Bible-believing creationist. Dr. Martin examines many of the claims and theories of prominent evolutionists, comparing their often incredible, inconsistent, pseudo-scientific explanations of origins to the clear and simple description of the Creation as depicted in the Bible. The result is the realization that evolution, just like creation, is in fact a faith system - in other words, it takes just as much faith, perhaps more, to believe in the Darwinist theory of evolution as it does to take as simple, profound truth the Bible's clear explanation of...

    Triceratops Horn Soft Tissue Foils 'Biofilm' Explanation by Brian Thomas, M.S. * Decades ago, when researchers began publishing their discoveries of transparent, floppy tissue with recognizable intact cells inside dinosaur bones, plenty of shocked evolutionists disputed their results. After all, nobody knew—and still nobody knows—a process whereby flesh and bones could persist over the eons that evolutionists insist dinosaur fossils have endured. One popular pushback asserts that the soft tissues are not from the dinosaurs at all, but from bacteria that somehow infiltrated their bones and built biofilms in the same shapes as dinosaur tissues and cells.

And the results are not good news for the story of...

Have you ever thought that in order to be a Christian, you had to deny science, and believe in young earth creation science? You are not alone.

    If you're in a room of 100 people, odds are likely about 40 think God created humans about 10,000 years ago, part of a philosophy called creationism, according to a Gallup poll reported Friday (Dec. 17). That number is slightly lower than in years past and down from a high of 47 percent in both 1993 and 1999. And 38 percent of Americans, the poll estimates, believe God guided the process that brought humans from "cavemen" to today's incarnation over millions of years, while 16 percent think humans evolved over millions of years, without any divine intervention. This secular view,...

    Noah’s Flood is critically important to the question of the age of the earth. For over eighteen centuries virtually all Christian leaders understood Genesis to recount a universal Flood that completely covered the whole earth, leaving no dry land anywhere at the height of the event. However, during the past 200 years many Christians—including leading pastors—have been swayed by secular ideas and have abandoned the clear hermeneutic of Scripture for belief that the Flood was local and covered only the Mesopotamian Valley of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers (the area of modern-day Iraq). But such a view in Christian circles...

  • Trouble in Paradise: Why the Young Earth Paradigm Fails the Test of the Biblical Worldview

    Introduction The standard young earth paradigm says that God originally created the heavens and earth as a perfect paradise in which God's image bearer, mankind, was to live. However, Adam and Eve's sin resulted not only in the fall of mankind, but the fall of creation itself to its current imperfect state. The fall of creation is usually attributed to the curse - God's judgment on mankind and His perfect world.1 Changes attributed to God's judgment include the initiation of death for both mankind and animals, the creation of weeds, parasites, disease, carnivorous activity, and any other aspect of creation...

    BILLINGS, Mont. — Glacier National Park has lost two more of its namesake moving icefields to climate change, which is shrinking the rivers of ice until they grind to a halt, a government researcher said Wednesday. Warmer temperatures have reduced the number of named glaciers in the northwestern Montana park to 25, said Dan Fagre said, an ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey. He warned many of the rest of the glaciers may be gone by the end of the decade. "It's continual," Fagre said. "When we're measuring glacier margins, by the time we go home the glacier is already...

    When paleontologists find fossilized dinosaur bones during a dig, they usually do everything in their power to protect them, using tools like toothbrushes to carefully unearth the bones without inflicting any damage. However, when scientists found a massive Tyrannosaurus rex thigh bone in a remote region of Montana a few months ago, they were forced to break the bone in two in order to fit it into the transport helicopter. This act of necessity revealed a startling surprise: soft tissue that had seemingly resisted fossilization still existed inside the bone. This tissue, including blood vessels, bone cells, and perhaps even...

Don't all qualified scientists, including geologists, believe in Darwinian evolution and a billions of years old Earth and universe? The simple answer is "no". Both evolutionists and creationists have certain built-in assumptions in interpreting and using scientific data when it comes to the Earth's age. The issue many times comes down to which...

Each of the findings came from two pioneering methods of measuring ancient mountain elevations, and the results are in tight agreement. The research papers, appearing in today's issue of Science and next week's issue of Earth and Planetary Science Letters, mean scientists will have to re-evaluate tectonic processes that build high elevation plateaus, such as those in Tibet and the central Andes. "These results really change the paradigm of...

    On Sunday September 25th, the Washington Post published a story called "In Evolution Debate, Creationists Are Breaking New Ground." Out of all the potential stories about Christians out there -- murderous persecutions in China, enslavement of Christians in Africa, the role of Christians in the Katrina cleanup -- the Washington Post chose to write this one.Young Earth Creationists hold a very narrow construct of the Bible and claim that the earth is only 6,000 or so years old. I don't buy into that construct for the following scientifuc reasons: We have earthly evidence that contradict the idea of a 6,000-year...

    Using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, a team of astronomers led by the University of Rochester has detected gaps ringing the dusty disks around two very young stars, which suggests that gas-giant planets have formed there. A year ago, these same researchers found evidence of the first "baby planet" around a young star, challenging most astrophysicists's models of giant-planet formation. The new findings in the Sept. 10 issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters not only reinforce the idea that giant planets like Jupiter form much faster than scientists have traditionally expected, but one of the gas-enshrouded stars, called GM Aurigae, is analogous...

    (I couldn't reproduce the charts so I recomend you follow the source URL and read the original PDF file.-DannyTN) Helium Evidence for A Young World Remains Crystal-Clear D. Russell Humphreys, Ph.D. Institute for Creation Research April 27, 2005, Copyright © 2005. Recently an anti-creationist geochemist, a part-time instructor at the University of Kentucky named Kevin Henke,1 posted on the Internet a 25,000-word rejection2 of scientific evidence that the world is only about 6,000 years old, the helium-leak age of zircons (radioactive crystals) from deep underground. In politics, his procedure would be called “mud-slinging,” which in this case tries to bury...
  • Intelligent Design's Contribution to the Debate over Evolution: A Reply to Herry Morris

    The father of modern young-earthism, Henry Morris, made a number of criticisms about intelligent design in his review of the book The Design Revolution. Some of it included the normal accusations of intelligent design theorists of not being faithful to the Bible (i.e. read: "They don't accept young-earthism like we told them to"). William A. Dembski replies in, "Intelligent Design's Contribution to the Debate Over Evolution: A Reply to Henry Morris."
  • Young-Earth "Scientists" Jump the Gun on Dino Find

    03/26/2005 7:39:21 AM PST · by truthfinder9 · 7 replies · 452+ views
    Dr. Carl Wieland shows the incredible scientific invalidity of the young-earth view in his article "Still soft and stretchy." The article discusses the discovery of soft tissue from a dinosaur. Wieland exclaims this is a “stunning rebuttal” of the old age of the Earth. He then accuses scientists of never finding it before because of “the overriding belief in ‘millions of years’” has “blinded researchers” to such finds. What a joke. How does one find like this overturn thousands of old-age evidences? It does not, nor does Wieland attempt to explain why it would. This is the famous fallacy of...
  • What Is Melting the Ice on Enceladus?

    What Is Melting the Ice on Enceladus?    03/04/2005 When Cassini flew by Enceladus from 730 miles up on Feb. 15, scientists were hoping it would reveal the secret of its active surface.  As is common in planetary science, the mystery only deepened (click here for photo gallery).  The surface showed a complex mix of canyons, ridges and spots that suggest a taffy pulling machine has been at work: whatever flowed, it appears to have been thick and viscous.     Richard A. Kerr in Science1 agreed that the little Saturnian ice ball has become “stranger still.”  He mentions...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- A new analysis of bones unearthed nearly 40 years ago in Ethiopia has pushed the fossil record of modern humans back to nearly 200,000 years ago -- perhaps close to the dawn of the species. Researchers determined that the specimens are around 195,000 years old. Previously, the oldest known fossils of Homo sapiens were Ethiopian skulls dated to about 160,000 years ago. Genetic studies estimate that Homo sapiens arose about 200,000 years ago, so the new research brings the fossil record more in line with that, said John Fleagle of Stony Brook University in New York,...
  • Young-earthism continues to be a stumbling block on the debates over origins

    Young-earthism continues to be a stumbling block on the debates over origins. While more and more people turn to old-earth creationism/intelligent design as they find it to be the only way to defeat naturalistic evolution & adhere to the infallibility of the Bible, many continue to blindly subscribe to YEC beliefs. Below are some examples of the inane items prinited in some YEC circles, in particular in Creation magazine. The young-earth quarterly magazine Creation has been described as "a cross between the Flat Earth Society Journal and the National Enquirer." Here is some of the wild pseudoscience presented in the...
  • Dino-blood and the Young Earth: YECs embarass Christians

    02/15/2004 11:49:26 AM PST · by truthfinder9 · 57 replies · 301+ views
    Once again, the YECS emabarass Christians with their shoddy "science" and give skeptics more reasons not to believe. As the article says: Serious questions of credibility are raised by the falsehoods and misrepresentations exposed above. The dino-blood chimera has been widely promoted by Answers in Genesis...No scientist could continue his or her career guilty of such shoddy work, but we predict that there will be no negative consequence to Wieland or his organization. If you "own" the truth, you apparently needn't stint at falsehood.
