Baraminology: Creationists Re-Examine the Horse Series

This post should find interest amongst those critics who claim that Creation scientists do not follow the evidence where it leads. In a recent issue of Answers magazine [Vol. 3 No. 4 Oct-Dec 2008], an article on pp. 74-77 called “Horse Fossils and the Nature of Science” by Dr. Todd Charles Wood caught my eye….

Faith-based Sci-Fi as Exploratory Apologetic

Christians tend to mistrust science fiction, but it can be used to anticipate solutions to future theological questions.

Darwin’s Dyke: The Lobster’s Ears

I attented the September ’08 meeting of the Kanawha Creation Science Group recently, where we screened and discussed Dr. David Menton’s video, “The Hearing Ear and the Seeing Eye.” The video lecture gets it’s title from Proverbs 20:12: “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made both of them.” Dr. Menton apologized…

Voddie Baucham: Comments on Sarah Palin

What I’m about to say will not be popular and will definitely reveal that I am no Republican. Neither am I a Democrat. I caught Voddie Baucham’s CNN interview [above] and I gotta say, I agree with him. While I like Sarah Palin’s views on the majority of the issues, Biblically I have to wonder…

Why I Am A Creationist 3

Inevitably, someone accuses me of being a Creationist simply because I was raised that way. If I’d been born into the Muslim world, I’d be a Muslim, they say. If I’d been born into one of USAmerica’s Coastal Ignorance belts, I’d be a godless liberal. Et cetera ad nauseam. The problem with this analogy is…

Darwin’s Dyke: What the Fossil Record Actually Shows

How many times have you heard this? “The fossil record proves evolution!” It doesn’t. Let me tell you why. Hey, I’ll even show you. What the Geological Strata Charts don’t tell you. Now, the picture we’re usually given to illustrate how evolution is demonstrated shows a cross-section of geological strata and some corresponding text to…

What’s Wrong With Church 8: Fellowship in Neat Little Rows

I believe that Fellowship is one of the more crucial keys to a reality-based Christian life. In Hebrews 10:19-25, we are told not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, so that we can help each other to “hold fast the profession of our faith” (ie. – to NOT give up!). A lot of folks…

Thoughts on Predestination

John Calvin (1509-1564) was a French theologian, church reformer, humanist, and pastor, whom Protestant denominations in the Reformed tradition regard as a major formulator of their beliefs. He was also a contemporary of Martin Luther. This article addresses his most famous doctrine, Predestination. Predestination finds its roots in John Calvin’s interpretations of Romans 8:29 and Epesians…

Darwin’s Dyke: So much depends on Evolution: On Philadelphia’s Year of Evolution, Darwin Day & the New Desperation of Darwinism

“So much depends on evolution,” claims yearofevolution.org, a website showcasing the University of Pennsylvania and the Penn Museum’s intent to make a year-long celebration of Darwinism. The claim is common to Darwinist polemics, so it’ll be useful to critique the claims of the site. First, we should ask, What actually depends on evolution? Well, that depends on…

Palin makes McCain more palatable

McCain pulled an end run around the Democratic ticket when he announced Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential co-runner! The thing that really irritated the Dems on this one is that it completely took the wind out of their sails, especially when it was announced in the midst of the Democratic National. Now that’s good…
