Talking Geology with Dr. Andrew Snelling

One of the reasons so many Christians have come to accept an old Earth is they believe that science does not support a global Flood and a young Earth. Dr. Snelling is a geologist with an impressive resume having broad experience with the actual data and getting it published. In this interview we discuss several significant factors that confirm both the global Flood and a young Earth.

Dr. Snelling was a significant partner in the RATE project, which the findings were powerfully in favor of creation and the Flood. In this interview we primarily discuss findings related to helium in zircons and carbon in coal samples. On the web Dr. Snelling has been attacked fiercely, so I wanted to find out if he really had the data to support the Earth being young and the global Flood. Watch for your self to see how he did in this stirring encounter.

While evolution requires long ages for evolution to be viable, the Evidence Press series of videos reveals over and over the astounding evidence for creation. In this video is confirmation from helium in zircons and 10 coal samples the Earth is young.

Interview with Mike Oard

Geology provides some very interesting data in regard to the age of the Earth. As long as evolution is the only game in town it supports long ages as evolution requires. Mike Oard is a weather man who is a young Earth creationist. He not only sees geology favoring a young Earth he provides observable evidence to support the young Earth conclusion.

In this video Mike discusses geologic layers, marine fossils and ice cores all of which support a young Earth.

Irreducible Complexity — Can Design be Falsified?

Irreducible Complexity
by Jim Bendewald

Can Design by an Intelligence be Falsified?

Evolutionists claim that Intelligent Design (ID) does not have hypotheses that are falsifiable. They then conclude that ID is pseudoscience. This is a very serious claim, and it is prolific in the pro-evolutionary media as a foundational argument against ID.

What is a falsifiable hypothesis? A hypothesis is a tentative explanation that can be tested. Falsifiable means that the explanation must be stated in such a way that it could be proven false. For example, someone might make the hypothesis that, “It never snows in July.” This statement can be proven false by evidence that it does snow in the southern hemisphere in July.

Does ID have falsifiable hypotheses? Yes, and they correspond to the evolutionary falsifiable hypotheses. For example, Charles Darwin wrote in the Origin of Species, “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.” Therefore, if it could be shown that an organism could not evolve by numerous, successive, slight modifications, it would reveal Darwin’s theory to be false. Note: Natural selection is an effective theory for explaining biological change within a kind; thus natural selection is not being challenged here. However, the following demonstrates that evolution theory is false.

Michael Behe, the author of Darwin’s Black Box, coined the term irreducible complexity. It describes systems which have no functional advantage unless several components are in place. Behe used the analogy of a mouse trap. In order for the mouse trap to catch mice it must have all five components: a platform, hammer, spring, sensitive catch and bar. Behe uses several biological examples including the bacterial flagellum, blood clotting and cilia for illustrating irreducibly complexity. Evolutionists go through extraordinary mental contortions in lengthy articles trying to explain away the problem of irreducibly complexity in these examples. They provide no empirical evidence to support their imaginative views, while leaving horrendous gaps along the way in their “just so” stories.

So, if in fact ID is just nonsense and does not provide falsifiable hypotheses, then why do evolutionists go through such extraordinary lengths trying to explain away examples of irreducibly complexity? The fact that they have lengthy articles designed to dispute irreducible complexity only demonstrates that it is falsifiable.

An irreducibly complex hypothesis can be stated falsifiable: “Are there irreducibly complex biological systems which would refute numerous-successive-slight-modifications evolution?” This is a testable hypothesis; evidence on both sides has been presented. It is incorrect to say that ID is pseudoscience and does not provide falsifiable hypotheses.

The cell is the ultimate example of irreducible complexity. My book Evolution Shot Full of Holes with co-author Frank Sherwin, contains a chapter on the topic of the origin of life. The cell is an interdependent functional city. We state, “The cell is the most detailed and concentrated organizational structure known to humanity. It is a lively microcosmic city, with factories for making building supplies, packaging centers for transporting the supplies, trucks that move the materials along highways, communication devices, hospitals for repairing injuries, a massive library of information, power stations providing usable energy, garbage removal, walls for protection and city gates for allowing certain materials to come and go from the cell.” The notion of the theoretical first cell arising by natural causes is a perfect example of irreducibly complexity. Life cannot exist without many numerous interdependent complex systems, each irreducibly complex on their own, working together to bring about a grand pageant for life to exist.

Copied from a previous Evidence Press post.

Georgia Purdom Discusses the Cell

Charles Darwin thought of cells as “simple”. With better microscopes and scientific experimentation we have come to see a whole world of complexity within the cell. The complex cell is in many ways like a city.

In this video, Jim Bendewald interviews Dr. Georgia Purdom on staff with Answers in Genesis.  The discussion includes a fascinating look at the various organelles and functions of the cell. In addition to the interview are wonderful illustrations using animated graphics. In this video you will see for yourself the immense complexity built into our cells. While evolution predicts simplicity and requires simplicity, the reality is the cells contain unfathomable complexity inferring design as the best explanation.

Sharing the Gospel with a Mormon Friend

When I was in high school I had a good friend (I will call him Bob) who was and still is a Mormon.  Bob is now living in an Arab country.  To reach Bob I got in contact with his brother (I will call him John).  For the past year John and I have been emailing each other.  We have been having friendly discussions about theology, especially concerning what it means to be saved from a Protestant point of view.  I want to let you in on John’s questions and my answers.

John wrote, “I am unclear about your belief under the subject of “free salvation—“Not of works, lest any man should boastand…the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”  Why would a God, “who is rich in mercy,” send anyone to hell for not ever having the chance to hear of Jesus when “the free gift came upon all men.” If God is not fair to even one person, He would not be equally fair and stop being God. What constitutes a “sin?” What makes us “righteous?” when it said “Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Why does it matter what we do?”

The Salt Lake Temple is the largest (of more than 120 around the

The following is my response to John’s questions above:

In your most recent email you are asking about “free salvation” or that salvation is a free gift.  Notice the following passages:

Ephesians 2:8-9 (NASB)
8  For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
9  not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Titus 3:5 (NASB)
5  He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,

1 John 5:11-12 (NASB)
11  And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12  He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

John 5:24 (NASB)
24  ”Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

John 1:12 (NASB)
12  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

Romans 10:9-10 (NASB)
9  that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
10  for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

In all these passages salvation is the subject.

Ephesians 2:8,9 salvation is by grace through faith.  It is a gift, not works.

Titus 3:5 we are saved “not on the basis of deeds which we have done . . .”

I John 5:11-12 eternal life is in His Son and those without the Son will not have eternal life

John 5:24  the one who hears His word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life

John 1:12  as we receive Him – these are the ones who become children of God

Romans 10:9,10 confess and believe “God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”

To me the point is not whether I understand everything about God, salvation, heaven and hell and whether I think God is fair or not.  To me and other Christians who believe as I do; we believe these bible passages to be very clear that salvation is a gift, it is not by our works.   Jesus who was without sin paid for all our sin.  In doing this He reconciled us to the Father, our sins have been atoned for.  Romans 5:10 (NASB) 10  For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Now as followers of Christ, with the Holy Spirit indwelling us we have a new power for change.  With God’s help, we now have the power to live a new life.  Now with our salvation secured we are free to grow and become more like Christ.  Note the following passage:

John 10:27-30 (NASB)
27  ”My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
28  and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
29  ”My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
30  ”I and the Father are one.”

Jesus gives us eternal life and we will never perish and no one can take us out of His hand.  We are saved forever.

Ephesians 1:13 (NASB)
13  In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise,

In the Ephesians 1:13 passage we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.  How did we get salvation?  We believed, after listening to the message of truth.

God offers us eternal life through His Son and His Son only.

John 14:6 (NASB) 

6  Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Jesus is the only way.  There is no other way through works or good deeds.  Jesus is the only way – salvation is by Jesus and Him alone.  Salvation is not by Jesus plus works.  My question to you is — will you accept God’s way of salvation through Jesus alone or will you reject His way of salvation?  As it says at the end of Ephesians 2:8,9 “so that no one may boast”.  When we work for our salvation we get some of the credit.  When salvation is by Jesus alone all the praise and glory belongs to Him and His death on the cross.

Your Mormon way of salvation may make more sense to you.  Maybe it seems more fair to you but it is not God’s way.  As you know, it is God’s way that counts.

Sincerely,

Jim

John wrote back the following:

Jim,

Thank you for this fine letter on grace.

In your own understanding and words, what is the determining factor Jesus uses to choose who will receive His grace and be saved? And, what are we saved for?

Thank you,

God bless,

I then responded with this letter:

When sharing the scriptures with a person with little or no religious background I would share many of the verses I gave previously.  I would focus on John 1:12 (NASB)
12  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

Then I tell the person that believing and receiving are two action words that complement each other – to receive Christ is an act of believing.

John 20:27-31 (NASB)
27  Then He said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.”
28  Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29  Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”
30  Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book;
31  but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.

Note that after the resurrection Thomas sees Jesus.  Jesus tells him to believe.  Thomas responds with humble contrition and calls Him My Lord and my God!”  Something happened to Thomas.  He believed and it changed him.

Man Sitting Desperately Under The Cross

Notice verse 31.  These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.  So John gives his reason or purpose for writing the Gospel of John.  His purpose is: so we would “believe” and therefore have “life”, meaning eternal life in his name.

“Believing” in context of the New Testament is believing in Jesus Christ as God and messiah.  Many people “believe” in themselves or the pope or miracles or prayer or religion or good works or teachings of their church or something else.  But the NT teaches us that salvation belief is in Jesus alone.

When I talk to people about the gospel leading to salvation I like to use these verses:

1 John 5:11-12 (NASB)
11  And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12  He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

It complements the John 1:12 passage about “As many as receive Him . . .”  When we receive the Son we then have the Son as stated in I John 5:12.  And those who have the Son have the life  — that is eternal life.

Your second question is what are we saved for.  As I John 5:12 says, “He who has the Son has the life”.   To know that the word “life” is about eternal life see the next verse.

1 John 5:13 (NASB)
13  These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.

Jesus Cloud

The following verse specifically says, “so that you may know that you have eternal life.”  To me this is a very important verse because many people that I talk to say, “no one can know that they have eternal life”.  But that is not true.  If we have the Son we have eternal life.  If we don’t have the Son we don’t have eternal life.  Therefore, we can know that we have eternal life.

But there is another purpose for our salvation.   Our salvation is for us to be reconciled to God.

Romans 5:10 (NASB) 10  For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 

But reconciliation is more than just a transaction.  It is about relationship.

Romans 8:15 (NASB)
15  For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”

We are adopted into the family of God and we call Him Abba Father or daddy.  Our salvation is to bring us into a relationship with God whereby we do not fear Him but love Him as a child would intimately call out “daddy” to an earthly father.

So in a phrase, we are saved for the purpose of having a loving relationship with God.

What is the determining factor “Jesus uses to choose who will receive His grace and be saved?”   Those who believe in Him, those who receive Him and those who have the Son have the life.

Jim

John wrote back again with a kind note and a summary of what I had written.  He seemed to be paying very close attention to what I had said.  I was impressed.  Was what I wrote causing him serious reflection?

Even though there were positive signs I became concerned that he was just going to use my answers as an inside track to proselytize others.  Therefore, I wrote the following:

John,

Yes, I believe you understand what I have written but I have some concerns.

God cannot be manipulated, He cannot be fooled.  He knows us and it is He who saves us.

As it says in John 10 Jesus is the door of the sheep while thieves and robbers (false teachers) try to get to the sheep some other way.

Cute Funny Sheep Close Up

John 10:1 (NASB)
1  ”Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.

John 10:7-10 (NASB)
7  So Jesus said to them again, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
8  ”All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
9  ”I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
10  ”The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

John 10:14-15 (NASB)
14  ”I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,
15  even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

If you or some other Mormon, or Jehovah Witness or a teacher from another religion tries to steal the sheep they are considered to be “a thief and a robber”.

I remember you mentioning “repentance” in a past email.  Unfortunately, repentance has become misunderstood even among Christians.  The word means to change one’s mind.  While there may be times when repentance is about sin, I believe repentance is predominately used to change one’s mind about works righteousness.  The Jews too were trying to be righteous by following the Torah (the law).   When John the Baptist demanded that the people repent, he was a Jew speaking to Jews telling them to change their mind about how to please God.

Mark 1:4 (NASB)
4  John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

It does not say repentance of sin, but repentance for the forgiveness of sins.  Repentance of works righteousness leads to humility (I will never be good enough to please God)  and the forgiveness of sins.

Luke 3:8 (NASB)
8  ”Therefore bear fruits in keeping with repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father,’ for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham.

The Jews felt that they were saved because they were descendants of Abraham – they were Jews.  That is righteousness by way of being in the extended family.  But this too is wrong.

Jerusalem, Israel, Jewish Pesach (passover) Celebration Near The

Matthew 3:1-11 (NASB)
1  Now in those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying,
2  ”Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
3  For this is the one referred to by Isaiah the prophet when he said, “THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, ‘MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT!’”
4  Now John himself had a garment of camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey.
5  Then Jerusalem was going out to him, and all Judea and all the district around the Jordan;
6  and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins.
7  But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
8  ”Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance;
9  and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham.
10  ”The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
11  ”As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Verse 2 repent – change your mind about salvation by way of Judaism – the kingdom of heaven here.

Verse 6 confession of sins is always a good thing to do.  It is part of contrition and humility but it is not a condition for salvation.

Verse 7-9  John calls the Pharisees and Sadducees a brood of vipers because he senses they are there ‘thieves and robbers’.  They are the problem – they manipulate the people into works righteousness.   Since they know the law better than the commoner they suppress the people and lord over them.  This is the opposite of God’s way who wants His people to only have God as Lord not religious leaders.  Later they learned that salvation is a gift and is not to be earned.  Later it was made clear that the gospel, the kingdom of heaven was not just for the Jews but for the gentiles (non-Jews) too.  This is more evidence repentance for the Jews is changing their minds about being a Jew saves them or being a good Jew saves them.

Verse 11  Jesus will baptize with the Holy Spirit.  People will be born-again (see John 3), they will be transformed with the Holy Spirit (God) living in them.

So I write the above to say salvation requires repentance.  It does.  But it is not repentance from sin.  That would be a condition or a work.  No, God requires repentance from –  in your case — Mormonism.  Mormonism is a false religion that steals sheep from the true shepherd.  Just like the Pharisees and Sadducees, Mormons are a brood of vipers.  I don’t mean to insult you or the people you love, but I do feel you and other Mormons are desperately deceived and Mormons very thoroughly deceive the sheep.

2 John 1:9 (NASB)
9  Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.

3 John 1:4 (NASB)
4  I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NASB)
3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,
4  and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.

2 Timothy 2:24-26 (NASB)
24  The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged,
25  with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth,
26  and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.

2 John 1:9 the teaching of Christ includes John 14:6 (NASB) Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”  That does not leave room for works or Mormonism or other ways into the kingdom.  Jesus alone saves.

3 John 1:4 truth is real – we are to walk in it.  We are not to make it up as according to what sounds good to us. We are also not to get it from outside sources (book of Mormon or Mormon prophets) that make it up.

2 Timothy 4:3-4  warnings that the sheep will accept teachers in accordance to their own desires – these are teachers who may have a theology about God or hell that they like better.  But if it is not from the Bible it is a myth.  I struggle with the issue of hell.  Some of the descriptions are clearly symbolic but I can’t make up truth even when I don’t like certain bible passages.  All I have is the Bible.  Isaiah 55:8-9 (NASB)  ”For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
9  ”For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.

2 Timothy 2:24-26  God grants repentance, He does the saving, not my words, not my formula for salvation.  I pray that you and your family will come to your senses and escape from the snare of the devil.

The Five-Levels-of-Information-in-DNA Argument

When I (Jim Bendewald) speak to people about why creation is true and evolution is not — I try to use the five-levels-of-information-in-DNA argument. I have seen people go from complete confidence in evolution to certain doubt in evolution within the few minutes of our discussion. This argument clearly has the potential to be a game changer.

Skeptics dismiss evidence against origin of life problems by saying that such evidence is not evolution, it’s origin of life. The five-levels-of-information-in-DNA argument is a slam dunk on why the origin of life by natural causes could never work. Hopefully, anyone watching this video will see that.

But the five-levels-of-information-in-DNA argument is just as powerful against the evolution of organisms as well. This video provides the concepts necessary to permanently dismiss evolution as a valid theory. For animals to evolve from one type of animal to another they must add volumes of information in DNA and they must do so with incredible detail. Watch the video to see if you agree evolution by natural causes is not logical in any amount of time.

Like this description of the video, (these very words) natural causes is just not the way information is formed.

Interview with Ken Ham on Old Earth

Ken Ham is the founder and president of Answers in Genesis based in Kentucky. Jim Bendewald (the director of Evidence Press, Inc.) had the privilege to interview Mr. Ham at the Creation Museum in September, 2013.

Unfortunately, an old Earth has become popular among many Christians. A very important question then is, why have so many Christians come to accept an old Earth view? Ken Ham provides answers to this question in the second half of the video.

In the first half of the video we learn about Mr. Ham’s upbringing and what brought him into the creation ministry. We also learn of his vision for the Creation Museum and the proposed building of Noah’s Ark.

Hermeneutics is the art and science of interpretation. There are several methods for interpreting the Bible but there are two main methods you should know about. (Scroll down to see more text after the video).

This first method of interpretation is the historical-grammatical method. It begins with the belief that the Bible is completely accurate and is God’s word from beginning to end. It strives to understand what the author intended to say. It is different from a “literal” view in that it considers not just the literal words but also the grammar, the style of writing, the type of literature, the context of the times and other factors. It strives to allow the passage to speak naturally, not forcing an outside bias such as — trying to make the text fit an old Earth view. A correct interpretation comes out of the passage by examining the scriptures exegetically.

The second method of interpretation is the critical-historical method. It treats the Bible as only accurate in the areas that can be verified through archaeology and extra biblical writings. Another word describing this method of interpretation is “eisegesis” which means to insert one’s own presuppositions and biases into the passage. Those who use the critical-historical method start from their presuppositions and biases believing the Bible is a collection of myths. Eisegesis is also used to make the Bible conform to an old Earth view.

Instead of trusting the evidence for when the books were written, the critical-historical method assumes much later dates. Likewise instead of accepting internal evidence for authorship the critics have assigned a series of unknown authors and a variety of editors to the books of the Bible. This method of higher critical interpretation is popular among secular academics who consider the Bible to be largely myth.

The starting point from which one studies the Bible makes dramatic differences in how it is interpreted and applied. However, consider this verse from Romans 1:25, For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. It is a problem to worship the creature or natural causes of creation instead of the Creator.

The problem with Christians believing in old-Earth creation is equivocation. Inconsistent methods of Bible interpretation are used by Christian leaders to present an old Earth view of Genesis 1-11. Many Christians are getting their ideas for how to reinterpret Genesis 1-11 from certain leaders such as Hugh Ross of Reasons to Believe. He has written several books which provide an eisegesis approach to understanding Genesis 1-11 as well as other passages in the Bible.

In the process of adapting these deceptive views of scripture his followers are mixing their methods of interpretation. For most of the Bible they agree with and use the historical-grammatical method of interpretation and complete their Bible study in an exegetical manner. But for Genesis 1-11 they switch to eisegesis by twisting the scriptures to mean something they were not intended. Watch the video with Ken Ham to hear his view.

It is very likely that the paragraphs above are fighting words for many readers. However, making people angry is not our goal. We at Evidence Press very strongly believe that God intends for us to interpret the scriptures consistently using exegetical methods – for all of scripture – not just the passages we agree with. In addition, we strongly believe that modern science supports creation and a young Earth. Go to the Videos menu to find strong evidence for creation and a young Earth directly from scientists with PhDs.

Dr. Russell Humphreys on Starlight and Time

Dr. Humphreys provides a fascinating cosmology for how stars could appear to Adam and Eve.

For biblical creationists this seems to be completely contrary to the Bible’s Young Earth perspective. Since some stars are billions of light years away, it seems foolish to believe that the universe is only 6.000 years old. This is a problem for biblical creationists and it is a huge public relations problem since it is easy for moderately educated people to understand the problem and what it means in regard to the age of the Universe.

In recent years creation cosmologists have been thinking about how to solve the problem. Several of them have come up with testable hypotheses. Dr. Humphreys has a scientifically realistic solution to the problem. His PhD is in physics from Louisiana State University in 1972. He has worked for General Electric and Sandia National Laboratories in nuclear physics.

Watch this video to learn about Einstein’s theory of relativity, atomic clocks, an event horizon, black holes and red shift. Through this interview you will learn how modern understanding of physics helps us understand that light from the stars was indeed available for Adam and Eve to see.

Dr. David Menton on the Wonders of the Body

Psalm 139:14 “I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.”

It was a great pleasure to talk with Dr. Menton. He taught histology and gross anatomy, so he knows a thing or two about the human body. Indeed we were “fearfully and wonderfully made”. This video includes several of Dr. Menton’s favorite examples of design.

I hope you are not too squeamish, there is some blood in this video.

1% Myth by Dr. Kevin Anderson

The DVD evidence that humans and chimp genomes are a mere 1-2% different has become an icon of evolution. All a supporter of evolution had to do is mention the 1% difference between humans and chimps to score major points in a debate. However, like Junk DNA, the simple cell and the universe is eternal — the 1% difference is being shown to be false.

In this video Dr. Kevin Anderson provides some background to the so-called 1% difference. He demonstrates the sort of evidence that was used to determine the 1% difference.
