More on Noah’s Ark?

Sunday, April 9th, 2006

In an update on the Mt. Ararat anomoly some speculate might be Noah’s Ark, Space.com published recently taken satellite photo.
It does look odd, but is it Noah’s Ark? To my untrained eyes it just looks like rock and ice.
Here is a radar image that makes the noted area look like […]

Evolution Sunday

Saturday, February 11th, 2006

According to Answers in Genesis, over 400 churches in 49 states will be celebrating the 197th birthday of Charles Darwin.
Two years ago, Prof. Michael Zimmerman at the University of Wisconsin (its Oshkosh campus)—and also its dean of the College of Letters and Sciences—began what became known as “The Clergy Letter Project.?
Using the university’s […]

The Quotable Wells and Joubert

Saturday, February 19th, 2005

H. G. Wells grasped an important truth that many Christians are completely missing - that our theological and moral foundation is found in the first few chapters of Genesis. Wells understood that if those were not taken as truth, then everything that was built on it cannot stand.
If all the animals and […]

The more things change…

Derek Gilbert of Weapon of Mass Distraction comments on an interesting article that has been understandably overshadowed by the coverage of the tsunami.

Woe

Monday, December 27th, 2004

Rodney Olsen blogs about the devastating tsunami with some real convicting perspective here and here. He includes a heartwrenching account by a father who lost his infant.
Yahoo! News has a slideshow illustrating, though only to the degree a camera can, the extent of devastation and pain caused by the tsunami.
Lest the reality of such […]

Just learn, don’t think

Saturday, November 13th, 2004

In Cobb County, Georgia, the ACLU is upset about a sticker on science textbooks that states:
This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully and critically considered.
In fact, they are so threatened […]

18,000 year old soggy bones? Really?

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

How do you suppose non-mineralized bone with the consistency of ‘wet blotting paper’ survived for 18,000 years?
Answers in Genesis has some striking biblically based observations about the Indonesian find:
There is every reason to believe that assigning a separate species name is not justified at all. These remains, despite their smallness, give every indication of humanity. […]

The Life Application Bible

Saturday, July 24th, 2004

Does anyone have a Life Application Bible? I’m either about to confirm what you’ve suspected, completely irritate or just plain horrify you…or maybe you won’t care at all, but it’s a good post, so keep reading.
A friend and I were sitting and waiting the other day. She saw and picked up a Life […]

Paper wasps!

Monday, July 12th, 2004

I did a little research to figure out what exactly has taken up residence on the porch ceiling, and think I have settled on them being paper wasps. The nest is about the size of my fist. The first thing that struck me about this is how delicate and perfectly round the nest […]

La Shawn Barber has choice words (doesn’t she always?) about the implications of the new 3D and 4D ultrasound technology. I traced the hat tips from La Shawn Barber to Evangelical Outpost to Ex Nihilo, all of whom are worth reading. Go read them!
Then go see the Watch Me Grow […]

Makita or Black & Decker?

Friday, May 7th, 2004

This research by Barna reminds me of a very good article by Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis on why people are uninterested in the Gospel message.
In a video presentation that sort of goes along with it, he explains that reaching out to unbelievers with the Good News isn’t enough. Noting how Paul, in Acts […]

D’oh!

New archaeological finds show that Homeric and Hollywood epics may be based on more than just myth
The famous story - originally told in Homer’s epic poem The Iliad - has always been considered more myth than reality. Now, says Ms Hughes, a collection of shattered tablets discovered beneath the Greek city of Thebes could completely […]

It will be interesting to watch…

Tuesday, April 27th, 2004

Is this Noah’s Ark? A excavation will take place this August to determine if the object is indeed man-made, and if it is, whether or not it is the Ark Noah built.
A press release from Shamrock — The Trinity Corporation, which will head up the excavation states:
The summer of 2003 provided a […]

Nature

Monday, April 5th, 2004

Sometimes I look around and praise God for making such a beautiful world. But then I think if I had seen it before the Fall - before sin and death had a chance to cause creation to groan - I probably wouldn’t be so impressed with it now.

Racism and Evolution

Friday, March 26th, 2004

In his effort to eradicate the Jews and other people groups, Hitler kept by his side Darwin’s classic, the Origin of Species. Why would a maniacal fascist keep a science book around? It becomes more obvious when you read what nearly all copies read today do not bear - the full title: On […]

Giant B-flick sized Oysters, please waiter!

Thursday, March 25th, 2004

Giant fossilized oysters were discovered at the top of a mountain in the Andes a few years ago. The article I read is a few years old, but still relevant. There are two non-conspiracy theory possibilities that explain this:
1. The mountains rose up from the sea due to some serious plate action […]

My, my, my

Tolerance. It is a word misunderstood, misused and selectively practiced by most of society, especially those who so strongly advocate it.
To tolerate means to endure something or someone you find objectionable or offensive. It doesn’t mean to accept, embrace or agree with.
I am openly intolerant about certain things. I have come out […]
