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…

Creationism – Just Too Divisive?

Did you know that USAmerica has over 600 separate Christian denominations? Each of these movements is testimony to our commitment to doctrinal purity, but they also give evidence to a pervasive problem within the Body of Christ: Our tendency toward division and schism rather than unity when we disagree. Frankly, that’s the light some Christian…

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…

Evolution Weekend… Who Needs It?

Dr. Michael Zimmerman, the atheist who started the pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project and Evolution Weekend, has written a new post at the liberal Huffington Post called, Evolution Weekend: Now More Than Ever! He begins his post with blatant misinformation: “For the past 11 years, hundreds of religious congregations, congregations from a wide array of religious persuasions…

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…

Is It a Bird or a Dinosaur? A Tale of a Tail Trapped in Amber

At the tail end* of last year, the discovery of “Eva” (more formally known as DIP-V-15103) was announced as a dinosaur tail with feathers preserved in Cretaceous amber. The apricot sized sample also includes an ant and some plant debris. Discovered in an amber market in Myanmar, the tail fragment is believed to be a…

Consensus Science, Geocentrism and Aliens

In 2003, the late science fiction author Michael Crichton delivered a lecture at Caltech entitled, “Aliens Cause Global Warming.” The purpose of the lecture was to take to task the sort of science that uses political and social pressure to enforce groupthink. His lecture is often cited in critiques and criticisms of global warming. The…

What’s a Christian To Do With The Multiverse?

Some people talk about the Multiverse as if it’s an established fact. And some people suppose that, because it’s been connected with string theory and quantum physics, the whole thing is probably true but just over the average Joe’s head. As both an apologist and a writer of science fiction, I’m just going to say…

Has the Kachina Bridge Dinosaur Petroglyph Been Falsified? Not Even Close!

In March 2010, an intrepid pair of evolutionists, paleontologist Phil Senter and archaeologist Sally Cole, went out to Creationism’s most famous dinosaur icon, the Kachina Bridge sauropod petroglyph at Utah’s Natural Bridges National Monument. Why did they do it? Well, as Dr. Senter admits in an interview with LiveScience the problem was that the Kachina…
