Christians Will Colonize the Cosmos!

Originally posted on Alien Delusion:
Fellow Christian author E. Stephen Burnet has written a thought provoking post over at SpeculativeFaith.com, entitled?Will Christians Colonize the Cosmos?? He correctly notes that Christian objections to the idea that we will colonize space center on our eschatology. Basically, our End Times theology has resulted in a geocentric futurology: we…

Why the Search for Exoplanets Should Be Encouraged

Originally posted on Alien Delusion:
The news of several Earth-sized planets orbiting a small, dim star called TRAPPIST-1 fell like a bombshell this past few days. The announcement was well orchestrated, complete with a 360 image of an exoplanet’s surface, ?a more mundane image of the same, a little video, and even a travel poster.…

Why Isaiah 45:18 Says Nothing About Aliens

Originally posted on Alien Delusion:
It’s one of the most cited verses amongst those touting anti-alien dogma. Just a couple days ago during an?Answers News?segment with Ken Ham, Bodie Hodge quoted it to claim that aliens were impossible. So how does this verse allegedly make the possibility of extraterrestrial life impossible? Isaiah 45:18 reads: For…

Is Creationism a Side Issue?

Even amongst Bible-believing Christians, not everyone embraces Biblical Creationism and Catastrophism, even though the plain meaning of the Bible expressly teaches a literal 6-day Creation and a world-wide flood. There are a variety of reasons given for rejecting the plain meaning of Scripture in favor of views that accomodate long ages. Some bow before the…

ET & the Evolution Connection?

The Last Enemy

Originally posted on Defending Genesis:
My friend, a fellow Creation speaker and a minister of the Gospel, announced the death of his beloved wife with these words: “She knew God’s full glory at 11:55.” My initial reaction was shock, sorrow, denial. Who hasn’t felt the horror, loss and gut-wrenching sadness of a loved one’s passing? There’s…

Can a Dinosaur Have Feathers?

Recently, we wrote about “Eva,” An alleged coelurasaur fossil trapped in amber. While we noted that the evidence seems more consistent with a bird than a dinosaur, it got me to thinking: Why can’t a dinosaur have feathers?  Two objections generally come to mind. The first is an appeal to consequences and the other is a…

In Principio: Genesis 1:2

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Some well-meaning Christians have attempted to place a considerable gap in time between the first two verses of Genesis. The Gap theory or Ruin and Reconstruction…
