Alien Salvation: Answering A Cartoon Argument Against ETs

Originally posted on Exotheology.org:
It sounds like an old joke: “Superman, Chewbacca and Spock walk into a bar…” Except in this case, it’s a cartoon strip by fellow creationist Dan Lietha, so no bar… and Superman’s reading the Bible. The animated strip ostensibly seeks to answer the question: “Is the Idea of Alien Life…

A Day at the Ark Encounter 

I’ve been looking forward to visiting the Ark Encounter for… well, pretty much since I first heard about it. Meanwhile, atheists and other misotheists have been maligning it and trying to sink it ever since they heard about it.  Most recently, Andrew Seidel, an attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation, used some footage from a trip…

The article, entitled?Any Little Green Men Out There?, originally appeared in Creation 15, no 1 (December 1992): 14-16. In that article, Ken Ham wrote…

The Reckoning: An Emerging Crisis In Biblical Exotheology 

Originally posted on Exotheology.org:
Modern exotheology risks repeating the error of the Galileo debacle. Since those who don’t know their history are doomed to repeat it, let’s start at the beginning of exotheology. The first recorded discussion of the possibility of extraterrestrial life comes from the 5th century BC Atomists. The Atomists were deistic;…
