Interview with Brian Thomas

The Creation Research Society and Evidence Press are producing a documentary about the discovery of soft tissues in a variety of dinosaur specimens.

This is one of several interviews we have filmed with scientists talking about the discovery. In this interview Thomas said, “…science shows that these bio-materials fall apart at a regular rate under the optimum preservation conditions. Best case scenario, it still falls apart. Why, because of the second law of thermodynamics.” He went on to say that the fact that bio-materials fall apart applies to all of biology, there are no exceptions.

The establishment scientists have two camps for explaining the soft-tissue discoveries.  The first says, we understand soft tissue decay and nothing can survive for millions of years, these are not original bio-materials from dinosaurs.  Rather, the results are either from contamination or bio-film.

The second camp explains the problem by saying, the discovery of proteins and numerous observational tests have proven these are original dinosaur bio-materials. They go on to explain the presence of soft tissue in 68 million year old dinosaurs by claiming the presence of iron acts as a preservative. They then minimize the problem by saying we can expect these bio-materials to last millions of years — it’s not a problem.

Neither camp considers that the obvious alternative explanation, evolutionary dates for dinosaurs are wrong!  However, the implications for such a conclusion are too catastrophic to consider. It is unthinkable and they cannot provide that option to the media or to the public.  However, in our documentary Echoes of the Jurassic, we will. This is why we are producing this documentary. While the evolutionists want to keep this evidence in the closet (or at least keep it minimized as a preservation issue) we want everyone to know about it and understand its significance especially in light of the collaborating evidence we will provide.

Help us spread the word on Facebook and other social media outlets. We are running a crowd funding campaign to help raise funds to produce the project and have it ready for distribution by June, 2016. We have an abundance of interesting incentives as part of the campaign.

Crying Rocks Ministry — Evidence for Creation

The evidence for creation is compelling, logical and consistent throughout the scientific disciplines. Helping people see the evidence for creation takes prayer, planning and patience. Why? Because this issue is not just about logic and evidence; it is tied up with world view and what an individual wants to be true. Guy and Cindy Forsythe have a unique ministry to the residents of Sedona, Arizona. They mail out a newsletter four times a year to every home in Sedona!

In this interview with Guy we discuss the newsletter and how it came about. We also discuss the local geology and how it provides evidence for rapid water deposition rather than millions of years. We discuss the debate Ken Ham had with Bill Nye, magnetic field decay and other topics.

Canyon Ministries — An Interview with Tom Vail

Tom Vail, Founder of Canyon Ministries has been involved in rafting and giving tours of the Grand Canyon for the past 30 years. He has some fascinating insights into what the geological evidence reveals.

One of the most talked-about issues related to the Grand Canyon is how the layers were formed and subsequently how the canyon was carved. Evolutionists accept the uniformitarian model and believe the layers were laid down slowly over many millions of years. For example, they claim that the sand which formed the Tapeats Sandstone, which covers the vast majority of the North American continent, was deposited at the bottom of a calm and placid sea. If that were true, what accounts for the fact that the formation is also found across Europe and Northern Africa? In this video, Tom reveals evidence that the Tapeats Sandstone does not fit the secular model.

Tom also shares the interesting story of how he came to have a relationship with Christ later in life. In Tom’s case it resulted not only in a new way of life; it resulted in a new way of looking at geology.

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.

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.

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.
