Promoting Creationism as Revealed in the Book of Genesis, in Six 24-Hour Days

Introduction: Creationism and evolution have been in opposition ever since the latter’s introduction by Charles Darwin in 1858.  Their conflicting views come as no surprise since creationism is derived from Christianity, while evolution is claimed to be derived from science. Christianity revolves around the concept of faith in Jesus Christ, and science revolves around the pursuit of evidence in nature. In light of today’s growing focus on science, it is essential to address the issue. Through this treatise, we hope to show that God is the true creator of all life on earth and that evolution is a biased and illogical explanation for the creation and sustaining of life. Read More

Creation or Evolution? On Which Do You Stand?

Creation or Evolution? On Which Do You Stand?

By Dr. David R. Reagan | Lamb and Lion For 30 years I didn’t think so. I just couldn’t understand what the fuss was all about. What difference did it make whether God created instantly in a matter of a few days or gradually over millions or billions of years I was a Theistic Evolutionist — one who believes in evolution, but believes that it was God directed. One of my problems was that I had grown up in a church that focused its study of the Bible almost exclusively on the New Testament. I had never really read and studied all of God’s Word. When I did, I immediately dropped my flirtation with evolution. Read More

Adam and Eve: Genetic Science Confirms Bible Again

Adam and Eve: Genetic Science Confirms Bible Again

Bryan Fischer The Bible and its account of origins is treated with utter contempt by cultural elites, those who look down their long noses at the rubes and hayseeds (like me) who place great confidence in the Book. Well, the elites better hope their snobbish peers don’t get their hands on the report about the latest in genetic science. The reason: genetic scientists are telling us now that there is powerful and virtually irrefutable scientific evidence that every human being on earth has descended from a single pair of parents. The Bible, of course, goes science one better, and even gives us the names of our original ancestors, “Adam” and “Eve.” Read More

Begin with the Bible

Begin with the Bible

BY JAYME DURANT  | ICR I ran into a Christian recently who asked, “Couldn’t God have used the Big Bang to get everything here in the first place” Maybe they assumed the Big Bang just meant a loud noise when God spoke the world into existence (Psalm 33:6-7, 9). But the question indicated they didn’t understand the tenets of the Big Bang model. The problem is that the model is based on evolutionary assumptions. Among the many issues, two points particularly stand out as not fitting with what the Bible teaches about creation. The Big Bang model assumes it took billions of years for everything to develop as we see it today. However, the Bible’s timeline indicates that creation took place over six days about 6,000 years ago. Read More

Rebuilding Noah’s Ark: getting the facts straight

Rebuilding Noah’s Ark: getting the facts straight

by Russell Grigg First published: 12 May 2015 (GMT+10) Re-featured on homepage: 29 August 2016 (GMT+10) Re-featured on homepage: 5 April 2018 (GMT+10) The long-running denial of the authenticity of Genesis (and hence the whole Bible) by atheists, skeptics, and liberals took a new turn in 2010. This was when British Museum curator Irving Finkel claimed that he had translated a Babylonian tablet dating from around 1750 BC which contained an account of the Flood wherein the Ark (according to Finkel) was circular in shape, and was a giant coracle. He further claimed that this legend was part of the Babylonian Atrahasis Epic,1 and that it predated the Genesis account by a thousand years and so was the original Flood story on which the Genesis account was based. See our 2010 article “Watering down” the Genesis Flood. Read More

Building morality on evolutionary foundations?

Building morality on evolutionary foundations?

Without a rigorous defence of Genesis, such appeals to Christian morality will remain baseless. Despite Keller’s articulate, scholastic presentation, the very foundation of his argument was left undefended and fatally weakened. Tim Keller addresses the British Prime Minister and government at the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast by Gavin Cox | Creation.com American pastor and author Rev Dr Tim Keller1 gave an important keynote speech at the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast in Westminster Hall, London, on 19 June 2018.2 This was a significant address for several reasons but primarily because he gave a clear gospel presentation, which we applaud. He also outlined why Western society, and specifically British society, needs Christianity: Christians, he explained, are called to be ‘salt’ to the culture (Matthew 5:13–16). However, at a key point in his talk, although having emphasised the need for theological foundations for our Christian ethics, he failed to defend those same foundations. How Read More

Phenomenally Designed Hemoglobin

Phenomenally Designed Hemoglobin

Frank Sherman, M. A. | ICR Hemoglobin is an iron-containing respiratory protein in red blood cells that binds oxygen and then transports and releases it to cells that need oxygen. It’s designed as four subunits (two alpha and two beta chains), each with an eight-helix folded pattern. This configuration enables conformational changes of the protein so that oxygen molecules can easily load and unload. God has designed hemoglobin in a wide range of His creatures, both invertebrates (arthropods, mollusks, annelids, and echinoderms) and vertebrates. Read More

New Whale Fossil Harpoons Evolution

New Whale Fossil Harpoons Evolution

Frank Sherwin and Jeffrey Tomkins | ICR According to the evolutionary mantra, whales evolved from a dog-like land creature.1 And as the whale of a tale goes, over millions of years the size of the evolving creatures grew and finally resulted in the largest animals ever seen on Earth—the baleen whales. At least that’s the way the myth went until a recent toothed (non-filter feeding) whale fossil was found. The creature’s immense size and alleged early evolutionary appearance befuddled the whole story. Read More
