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…

Evolution versus Christianity: Why You Really Do Have to Choose

I once said God could have used evolution and that we had to allow for long ages in the days of the Creation Week. The following excerpt from my book, Defending Genesis: How We Got Here & Why It Maters, explains my dilemma at that point and why we really do have to choose between the authority of God’s Word and the claims of men who’ve interpreted the evidence by science chained to pure naturalism, despite claims to the contrary by Michael Zimmerman and BioLogos.

Why Animals, Humanity and the Rest of Creation Suffers for Adam’s Sin

In a post called “A theological argument against young earth creationism,” J W Wartick has argued that Biblical (young earth) Creationism is “morally impermissible.” His reasoning? Because animals died because of Adam’s sin, not because of anything they themselves did. If you’re reading that from an orthodox Christian worldview, something about his argument should be…

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…

Why Hitch Ain’t In Heaven

Recently, arch-atheist Christopher Hitchens, author of God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, went home to meet his Maker. I’m not saying that Hitch went to heaven. Unless there was some sort of deathbed conversion [and no one’s saying that’s the case], Hitch definitely did not go to heaven. This is a point on…

God & Stephen Hawking Dispute the Existence of Heaven: Guess WHO Wins?

Stephen Hawking essentially thinks heaven is a comforting fairy tale for those afraid of death. God, of course, disagrees, as revealed in His Holy Word, the Bible. In an interview published in The Guardian, the 69-year-old theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking claims says the human brain is like a computer that will stop working when its components fail….
