Digging for Truth-Episode 18: Noah’s Flood: A Worldwide Catastrophe (Part One)

Digging for Truth-Episode 18: Noah’s Flood: A Worldwide Catastrophe (Part One)

Henry Smith and Dr. Andrew Snelling | Associates for Biblical Research Join co-host Henry Smith as he interviews geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling. In part one, we discuss the extent and nature of the Flood and the eruption of Mt. St. Helens as a microcosm of what happened in the year of the Genesis Flood at the time of Noah. Dr. Andrew Snelling holds a PhD in geology from the University of Sydney, Australia. He serves as Answers in Genesis’ Director of Research and is the Editor-in-Chief of the online Answers Research Journal. Dr. Snelling is active in research and writes and also speaks on topics such as the Flood, fossils, and the Grand Canyon. 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

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


It All Adds Up: 6,000 Year Old Earth, Do the Math

It All Adds Up: 6,000 Year Old Earth, Do the Math

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!

We’ve all heard the horror stories. Teachers in government schools force students through strange, torturous machinations to do simple math. For example, many of us used to be able to add 121 + 13 in 1.72 seconds. The Common Core method takes 7 steps and 3 minutes and 18 seconds.

Communicate Creation with Mirror Questions

Communicate Creation with Mirror Questions

Communicate Creation with Mirror Questions from Institute for Creation Research on Vimeo.

 Brian Thomas, M.S. | ICR Extraordinary designs found all over the world simply demand divine creation.1 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, Ph.D. | 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 improvement.3,4 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
