The Origin of Life: A Problem for Evolution


In the mid 1800’s, when Charles Darwin was proposing his theory of evolution, two other scientists were disproving a commonly held notion.  At the time, many people believed in spontaneous generation.  Spontaneous generation is the belief that living things can arise from non-living material.  According to this view, worms, flies or even mice would simply spring forth from decaying meat, grain or other materials.  Scientists of the day had no idea about the complexity of the molecules that make up even the tiniest living thing.

The Biblical Flood and the Grand Canyon


Case promoting Biblical Flood

The Grand Canyon is a massive geological feature in the US state of Arizona. Due to efforts of conservationists, the region became a Forest Preserve in 1893 and was protected from unrestricted hunting and logging. Later, because of its popularity, the region was made into Grand Canyon National Park. The park covers over 1.2 million acres of land[1], and hosts nearly 5 million visitors annually.[2].

Limitations of Science

Scientific research has a tremendous influence on society today, not only in terms of advances in technology, but also in our world view. The conclusions of science are often highly regarded by the public and by scientists themselves, but the limitations of science are not always appreciated. Therefore, it is important to consider these limitations in order to evaluate the impact of science on human health and well-being and its effect on our world view, especially when the conclusions of science may contradict religious beliefs.

12 Arguments Evolutionists Should Avoid

For years, we’ve maintained a list of arguments creationists should avoid. There are enough good arguments for biblical accuracy and a young earth that dubious claims can safely be discarded. Now we want to address a similar topic: arguments evolutionists should avoid. These worn-out tropes have not only passed their expiration date, but they never should have been made to begin with.

Argument 1: Evolution is a fact

When our core beliefs are attacked, it’s often easy for humans to retreat to statements such as this: “My belief is a fact, and yours is wrong.”

Creation - how did God do it?


Posted May 31, 2010

The first chapters of Genesis leave us in no doubt whatsoever about how God created the universe. On the six successive days of creation, God spoke and what He said happened. That is to say, the means that God used to create the universe and all things in it was His Word.

The occasions of his speaking, from Genesis chapter 1, verses 3–26 (NIV), are as follows:

Atheists to Co-Opt Theistic Evolutionist Leadership

Ken_hamNot Ashamed, "Here I Stand"

by  Ken Ham

The words attributed to Martin Luther almost 500 years ago--when he boldly stood on the authority of God's Word against the compromisers of the day--often echo in my mind: "Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me." 

How we need God's people today to be like Luther.  We need boldness to show that we are not ashamed of the gospel (Romans 1:16) and will handle the Word of God unashamedly. (II Timothy 2:15) 

Sadly, as we have illustrated as many times in this newsletter over the years, the majority of theologians and church leaders (and most of the people of their congregations) will not stand on God's Word in Genesis.

Is the earth 4.6 Billions Years old?

Or, is the earth only 2,191,000 days (6,000 years) old?

Creation Worldview Ministries

In various previous articles I have discussed specific Geochronometers which scientifically show that our earth, solar system, galaxy and universe are young, perfectly consistent with 6,000 years. The reason that I have gone to such great lengths about this subject is simple. The question of age, great or small, is the key issue in the evolution-creation debate. If the earth were old, it would not make evolution true. It would only mean that there might have been enough time for evolution to have occurred. If the earth is young, then no theory of evolution could possibly be true.

The general public has accepted the great ages of the earth and universe espoused by evolutionists because they are poorly informed. The public school system, dominated as it is by secular humanists, has taught their religion and its tenets. The liberal press and equally liberal Hollywood has furthered their cause of secularism by uniting behind a great age for the earth and universe. Even Christian schools are no guarantee that a young earth position will be taught scientifically in their curriculum.
