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

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 | Creationcom 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 20182 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

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 creature1 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

by Roger Patterson | Answers in Genesis (AUDIO LINK) A 6,000-year-old earth When you look up the Bible references, the math’s not that hard!

Communicate Creation with Mirror Questions

Communicate Creation with Mirror Questions from Institute for Creation Research on Vimeo  Brian Thomas, MS | ICR Extraordinary designs found all over the world simply demand divine creation1 But people who reject God’s Son and the salvation He supplies often reject this clearly seen evidence as well How can believers shape spiritual conversations in the face of such strong anti-Creator bias Extraordinary designs found all over the world simply demand divine creation Tweet: Extraordinary designs found all over the world simply demand divine creation Certain folks simply don’t want to believe in creation They invent objections to truth that, like smokescreens, shield them from God The Lord Jesus cut through smokescreens to the root of unbelief when He said to Nicodemus: Read More

Massive Genetic Study Purporting Human Evolution Debunked

Massive Genetic Study Purporting Human Evolution Debunked

By Jeffrey P Tomkins, PhD | ICR The recent publication of a research paper evoked such headlines as “Massive genetic study shows how humans are evolving”1,2 Despite the improvement of health-care technology, many other studies indicate that chronic disease among humans is increasing worldwide—and that mutations are commonly associated with disease, not upward evolutionary improvement3,4 A closer analysis of this new study shows that its evolutionary conclusions are deeply flawed and humans are actually devolving This is exactly what modern biomedical data shows and the Bible indicates is happening due to the effects of the Fall where the whole creation is subject to corruption Read More

Archaeological Evidence for Prophet Isaiah

Archaeological Evidence for Prophet Isaiah

 Brian Thomas, MS | ICR Recently, Israeli archaeologist Eilat Mazar and his team made a stunning discovery during excavations in Jerusalem It provides strong support for the reality of Isaiah and his Old Testament world Digging at the base of the southern wall of the Temple Mount, the team found a clay seal bearing Isaiah’s name Mazar provided a transliteration of this Isaiah bulla in Biblical Archaeology Review as “Yesha‘yah[u] Nvy[],” where brackets indicate unknown letters from damage to the clay1 “Yesha‛yahu” is “Isaiah” If the Hebrew letter aleph stood in place of the missing letter “[],” then the word after “Isaiah” would spell “prophet” Possibly the hand of Isaiah himself formed this seal In 2015, only ten feet away, the team had found a clay impression called a bulla bearing King Hezekiah’s seal2 According to the Bible, the prophet Isaiah served during Hezekiah’s reign and interacted directly with the king Read More
