What do you have when you have a theory that is contradicted by observed scientific law? For one thing, you don't have much in the way of a viable scientific law.
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. - Psalm 19:1 Scoffers about miracles in the Bible like to mock a "talking snake" and so forth. A God who could create a vast universe filled with the stars and galaxies seen in the images in this video could easily create a talking snake or anything else he wanted to do. If you can believe Genesis 1:1, the rest of the Bible is gravy.
This installment of Creation Magazine Live examines "creative" interpretations of the Bible, especially with regard to the creation account in Genesis. Most people understand that context is key when it comes to understanding any written text. Yet many seem to forget this when it comes to the Bible in general, and Genesis in particular. This stems from belief in false claims of scientific "fact" that are really nothing more than unproven assumptions.
If carbon 14 decays relatively quickly (in just a few thousand years, there would be no significant amount left in a sample), how can an object supposedly millions or billions of years old have significant amounts of C14? Both assumptions can't be correct. The obvious answer: the object can't be millions or billions of years old.
Do you think the Bible and evolution can be reconciled--that both can be right? I used to think so...until I learned more about both of them. In this edition of Creation Magazine Live, some of these attempts to reconcile two very different accounts of creation are examined.
Be they theist or be they atheist, on this most scientists agree: In the beginning there was nothing. There was no time, space or matter. There wasn’t even emptiness, only nothingness. Well, nothing natural anyway. And then, bang! Everything. Nonexistence became existence.There's just one scientific problem: Everything cannot come from nothing.
I took a tour of a radio telescope when I lived in England. It was impressive. Many of these telescopes are intended specifically to listen for signs of intelligent life in the universe. How do they do this? Well, if random patterns come in (which they do all the time from various natural sources), it is assumed that this is NOT a sign of intelligent life. If, however, a regular pattern came in, and one that had measured complexity, then that would be a pretty good sign that this was some sort of signal from an intelligent source.
Why is the world such a mess? Why do so many bad things happen? Why is there so much suffering? These questions may be especially compelling in light of the assertions by Christians that God created the world. How could an all-powerful , good God create such a rotten place?
This edition of Creation Magazine Live examines some of the multitude of evidences that the earth and everything on it are relatively young, i.e. not millions and billions of years, but just a few thousand years old. These evidences include "living fossils," soft dinosaur tissue, mitochondrial DNA, examples of fast geological change, and more.
Isn't it interesting how many so-called scientists tell us with absolute certainty that our plant is 4.5 billion years old and the universe is approx. 13.5 billion years old? As this video points out, in 2004 the magazine New Scientist published an open letter from 33 leading scientists who pointed out that the big bang theory is based on hypothesis and guesswork, things that have never been observed, contradictions between the claims of the theory and actual observational science.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
