In Principio: Genesis 1:2 – Part 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.” I had initially thought to move on to verse three when something about this verse called back to me.  “..and darkness was upon the face of…

H.G. Wells, James McGrath and Martin Luther on Evolution & the Gospel

Some people will tell you that Genesis and microbes-to-man evolution are compatible, that you just have to believe that evolution over millions of years was the process by which God created. In fact, shortly after I re-dedicated my life to God 20 years ago, my wife asked me, “What about evolution?” I told her that…

In Which Ken Ham Continues To Promote the Lie that Isaiah 45:18 Says ANYTHING About Aliens 

Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis has recently “written” a post (with the help of the oft-times half-cocked “AiG’s research team”) called “Study: Mars “More Uninhabitable Than Previously Thought.” Apparently, a new study [“Perchlorates on Mars enhance the bacteriocidal effects of UV light.” Scientific Reports 7, Article number: 4662 (2017) doi:10.1038/s41598-017-04910-3] has concluded that Mars is currently more unsuitable…

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…

Does an Alien Zombie Apocalypse Solve the Fermi Paradox?

Originally posted on Exotheology.org:
It seems like the possibility of a Zombie Apocalypse gets just as much attention from the media as the UFO phenomenon. Shows like the Walking Dead and movies like World War Z have certainly made the concept more popular than it once was. I’m not immune. A copy of Max…

What Vaccines and Alien Abductions Have in Common

Originally posted on Exotheology.org:
What do vaccines and alleged alien abductions have in common? Aside from needles, believe it or not, according to conspiracy theorists the thing that vaccines and alien abductions have in common is that both are named as probable causes for autism! In April 2017, Anthony Lawson, et al, published a…

CreationWiki: Aliens Would Cause Believers to Abandon the Bible

Originally posted on Exotheology.org:
“We can safely say however, that if alien spaceships in fact landed on Earth… the reality of alien interaction would be undeniable to all those who dwell on earth. At this point, we would expect all Bible believers to set their Bibles aside and never give God a second thought.”…

Strangers and Aliens Gets Some Love

It’s a bit frustrating sometimes when yoir book is apparently?The Most Hated Book in Creationism… especially when no one particularly engages the arguments in said book and resorts to insults and appeals to authority instead. Truth isn’t always well-received. Still, I’m not exactly looking to be an exotheological martyr so…
