Once the planet had been properly prepared, the earth was ready for its clocks. There must be a time-keeping system for “signs and seasons, and for days and years.” What did God originally say about the purpose of the heavenly lights? And why were the events on the fourth day significant? Listen: Day Four—Sun, Moon, and Stars | The Institute for Creation Research
By Creation Moments We have all heard it said that, the family that prays together, stays together. A new survey by the Barna Research Group indicates that this old saying is still true.

By kpennock On this episode of ID: The Future, CSC Senior Fellow Jay Richards explains how perfect solar eclipses are the tip of an iceberg-size design argument found in a book he co-wrote, The Privileged Planet. The conditions for a habitable planet (right distance from the right size star, a big but not too big moon that is the right distance away to stabilize Earth’s tilt and circulate its oceans) are also conditions that make perfect solar eclipses from the Earth’s surface much more likely. And perfect eclipses aren’t just eerie and beautiful. They’ve helped scientists test and discover things, [More]

Day Three began with organizational processes acting on the rotating sphere that had been set in motion on the first day and divided into separate “waters” on the second day. What does it mean that God gathered the “seas” into “one place?” What scientific insight can help us understand the primeval shaping of Earth’s elements?

By Creation Moments Leatherback turtles make use of far more of the sea than most creatures. They can dive to depths of over 4,000 feet. They prefer cold, open ocean waters but lay their eggs on tropical beaches. Not only are they found all over the world, but the same individual may be found all over the world. In 1970, a turtle that was tagged off the South American coast also turned up just off the West African coast, almost 4,000 miles away. read more …read more Source: Creation Moments
