So Much Depends on Evolution?

“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…

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…

Was Noah A Millionaire? James McGrath’s Theology Stumbles On Scripture

What you’re about to read is what happens when a man who doubts the historical veracity of the Bible finds something in the Bible that contradicts his loosely Bible-inspired theology. Basically, he’s stubbed an opinion on a passage of Scripture. It’s sad. It’s instructive. It underscores the truth of Jesus’ warning in John 3:12 about the interconnectedness of…

Ark Wars: More Willful Ignorance About Dinosaurs, Noah’s Ark and the Ark Encounter

As most of you know, I debunked a rather poorly-conceived video on YouTube in which humanist Barry Lynn of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State attacked the up-coming Ark Encounter attraction. Lynn condescendingly referred to the Ark Encounter as the “Ark Park” and offered mockery and misinformation. Here’s how Lynn described it: “…I got into a…

Deflating Dobzhansky’s Grand Assumption, or Why Microevolution Does Not Lead To Macroevolution

Textbooks and Evo-evangelists still claim that small observable microevolutionary changes lead to big macroevolutionary changes. Some even think that Creationists made up the terms micro- and macroevolution to confuse folks but the distiction was actually recognized by evolutionists like Theodosius Dobzhansky [poor Mr. Hurd]! But the truth is that observable processes like Natural Selection and speciation can produce horizontal changes within kinds of animals but cannot satisfy the requirements of the assumptions of vertical microbes-to-man macroevolution. Which is pretty sad, since that’s what we teach our children!

Creation Museum’s new Natural Selection exhibit

Bulldog Skull Who knew that the lowly bulldog could be a Hero for Creationism?  A lot of folks have been led to believe that Creationists don’t believe in Natural Selection. That’s because some people have falsely equated Natural Selection with Evolutionism. Yet Biblical Young Earth Creationists DO observe and recognize  Natural Selection and, contrary to…

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….
