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…

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.

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…

Using Darwin’s Bulldog To Show A Rational Creationism

People are often surprised to learn that I build the central premise of my first non-fiction book, Defending Genesis, upon the words of the man known as Darwin’s Bulldog.  You see, while Thomas Huxley was certainly no friend of religion, he did have the intellectual honesty to concede that Biblical creationism was rational. `Creation,’ in 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…

On the Compatibility of Christian Faith & Evolution: Which Atheist is Lying To Us?

This weekend, atheist Dr. Michael Zimmerman is once again encouraging churches to preach Darwin from their pulpits. He claims that his Clergy Letter Project, signed by over 12,000 members of predominantly liberal clergy, shows that evolution and Christianity are compatible so long as we define religious truth as dealing with doctrine and morality and scientific…
