Creationism

Biblical and Scientific Defense of a Young Earth

Ron Bessette 150

I would like to explain why I believe that the earth and the universe are about 6000 years old.  My premise is that the Bible is the Word of God.  As the Word of God, the Bible is completely trustworthy.  Because it is completely trustworthy, I can accept the plain reading of it.  The plain reading of the Bible leads me to accept the historical narrative found in the book of Genesis.  I also believe that if the historical record in the Bible is not accurate, then I would have no reason to trust the theology or the morality of the Bible because it can no longer be considered the Word of God.

Unraveling the Origins Controversy

David_DeWitt

David DeWitt talked about his book, Unraveling the Origins Controversy. The interview, part of Book TV's college series, was recorded at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Unraveling the Origins Controversy answers many of the most challenging questions in the origins debate.  Scientist and author, Dr. David A. DeWitt clears up the confusion about creation and evolution by distinguishing fact from interpretation. He exposes the underlying assumptions and evidence on both sides of this contentious debate from a consistent Biblical worldview. Using scientific evidence and Scripture, he presents a positive, compelling case for a creation perspective.

Original Absolute Truth?

Rob Franzen

A Biblical Perspective on How to Live In a Culture That Rejects Truth

Because of these false teachers, many will follow their destructive ways, and the way of truth will be evil spoken of (2 Peter 2:2). Who suppress the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18)

In order for the Bible to make such statements as above, it must assert that there is such a thing as original, absolute truth. Is there such a thing? If so, what truth? Whose truth?

The Gap Theory and the First Two Verses of Genesis and Age of the Earth

Grand_Canyon

Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was [a]formless and void, and darkness was over the [b]surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was [c]moving over the [d]surface of the waters.

 "Can the geological ages be understood as occurring in a ‘gap’ between the 1st two verses of Genesis?"

It is widely known that historical geologists currently think the earth originated about 4.6 billion years ago, whereas the Bible indicates that "in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is" (Exodus 20:11).

Furthermore, the chronological data of Genesis 5 and 11 indicate that this all took place only a few thousand years ago. This obvious discrepancy is undoubtedly the most serious problem in the continuing warfare between Biblical Christianity and modern evolutionism.

Logic, Common Sense, and Scientific Inquiry

Creation Bullet #7

We all like to think we are endowed with a normal amount of common sense. Suppose I show you a cube with six sides, like a dice, Each side is numbered and only five sides are visible. If the numbers 1,2,3,4 And 6 are showing on the visible sides, what number is on the bottom?

The Real Cause is God

Bnowers1

Creation Bullet #4

Cause and effect: Evolutionists frequently misuse the cause and effect argument to give false support for their beliefs. An example would be rain as a cause and wet ground as the effect. The cause results in the effect. But this cannot be used in reverse.

17 False Arguments of Atheists on God’s Creation

270px-Nasa blue marble

In our support for God’s creation over Darwinian evolution we should first be aware of the type of false arguments used by atheists in their writings. I use atheist as the source of these arguments but theistic evolutionists believe in the same evolution. The only difference is atheists believe everything happened by chance while theistic evolutionists believe all evolution was directed by God. Every claim of evidence, or proof of macroevolution, is either misleading, irrelevant or false. Since the primary leaders in the evolution movement are atheists, they have no incentive to be limited by moral values.

Miraculous Failed Invasion of Sennacherib

oct-725px-Taylor_Prism

One question often heard concerning creation and man’s origins, as well as life’s origins, is whether Biblical accounts describing man’s origins and God’s creation of the universe can be trusted. Are the Biblical accounts accurate? Did the creation really occur? Was there really an Adam? an Eve? Was there really a world-wide global flood? There is amazing evidence that many miraculous events described in the Bible actually took place as described by the Bible. In this article we shall look at some of this evidence.

Case of Science Teacher Fired for Urging Students to Think Critically About Evolution

Creation-hands-L


July 06, 2012

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio— The Ohio Supreme Court has granted The Rutherford Institute’s appeal to hear the case of John Freshwater, a Christian teacher who was fired for keeping religious articles in his classroom and for using teaching methods that encourage public school students to think critically about the school’s science curriculum, particularly as it relates to evolution theories. Freshwater, a 24-year veteran in the classroom, was suspended by the Mount Vernon City School District Board of Education in 2008 and officially terminated in January 2011. The School Board justified its actions by accusing Freshwater of improperly injecting religion into the classroom by giving students “reason to doubt the accuracy and/or veracity of scientists, science textbooks and/or science in general.” The Board also claimed that Freshwater failed to remove “all religious articles” from his classroom, including a Bible.

Christians that Question the Bible Concerning Creation

Greene_Hollowell_2012_150A

When God presented the account of how He created the world and universe in the Book of Genesis, He gave an explanation that was straight forward and easy to understand. We, of course have no idea of what processes took place when He spoke or when He stretched His hands. But He gave an account that indicated the work was accomplished in a period of what we know was 6 days. He makes it very clear they are 24 hour days when He gives the 10 Commandments. (Exodus 20:11). It takes no theological training for the average person to see what He is saying. In addition the Bible contains genealogies that run from Adam & Eve to Jesus that allow for the calculation of years since Creation which would put the date at approximately 4000 BC.
