Update: Providing Things Honest In the Sight of All Men: Ken Ham, Susan Wise Bauer and the Great Homeschool Convention

Many of you have read my previous article regarding Great Homeschool Conventions’ outrageous decision to permanently ban Ken ham and Answers in Genesis from all future conventions for calling Dr. Peter Enns of Biologios a compromiser for, well, compromising the plain meaning of Scripture for an arbitrarily applied “incarnational” interpretation of Scripture. GHC have remained tight-lipped…

Are Old Earth & Young Earth Creationism Both Biblical, Orthodox Interpretations? A Response to Dr Jay Wile’s Big Tent Orthodoxy Position & the 21st Century Down-Grade

The other day I received a phone call from a rather delightful Orthodox Presbyterian. Mr. Jonathan Orcutt, a Biblical Creationist, called to encourage me, having read some of my comments on Dr. Jay Wile’s blog site. Mr. Orcutt was most upset over this Great Homeschool Conventions debacle in which Ken Ham has been judged a sinner for…

Does Whale Evolution Hold Water?

At one point in the Origins debate, evolutionists were fond of using the so-called Horse series as evidence for microbes-to-man evolution. The emerging Creationist classification science of baraminology has displaced the Horse series as largely irrelevant to the debate. Creationist scientists now affirm that all horses [including extinct three-toed varieties] all belong to the same created kind…

Vestigial Arguments – Begging the Question for Darwin

I once heard a college professor who specialized in evolution and ecology remark that no he’d never heard an adequate Creationist explanation for vestigial organs and structures. Rather he claimed that the only explanation he’d ever been offered was something to the effect that “Well, God made them to test our faith.” I do not wish to question his veracity…

A Ready Defense: Does Morality Evolve?

I once read an editorial appearing in my local newspaper, The Charleston Gazette [“Culture Shift,” Feb 5, 2010, Pg 4A], that began and ended with the phrase, “American morality has evolved.” Gazette editor Jim Haught is also a senior editor for Free Inquiry, the flagship magazine of the anti-religious Center For Inquiry founded by humanist…

How Long Did It Take Noah To Build the Ark?

  Short answer: The Bible doesn’t really say how long it took, but it was less than 120 years. Bible Reference: Genesis 5:32, Genesis 6:4 and Genesis 7:6. In Genesis 6, the Bible says that roughly 1600 years after the creation and Fall of Adam (if you count up the geneologies) that God saw that the…
