By Creation Moments Abraham was 175 years old when he died. This is an unusual age. It is a much greater age than people tend to live today. However, it is much less than the ages of the pre-Flood patriarchs, listed in Genesis 5. How can we understand this age? read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments     
By Creation Moments Gold is a chemical element, with the symbol Au. It has an atomic mass of 197 and an atomic number of 79. It is a yellow-colored metal, highly malleable, ductile and lustrous. It is rare, and this makes it valuable. Throughout history, it has been used to represent wealth. There was a time when many of the world’s currencies were basically backed by an equivalent amount of gold. Chemically, gold is quite boring. read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments

Historical science observes clues in the present that may be applied to a possible cause in the past. Evolutionists claim that fish evolved into amphibians, and amphibians into reptiles, and so on. But what do we see in the fossil record? Do evolutionists hold a worldview supported by true science?

By Creation Moments In the year 2000, a German scientist called Dr. Werner Gitt, wrote a book called In the Beginning Was Information. In this book, Gitt introduced the reader to the sophistication of Information Science. Gitt says that information consists of five levels, of increasing complexity. Evolutionary biologists assume that information can arise by itself from statistical accumulation. read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments     
Science is based on observation and experimentation. Have scientists ever observed a beneficial mutation? Although many experiments have attempted to duplicate some form of evolutionary change, no one has ever come close to “evolving” anything in the laboratory.

By Creation Moments Michael Ruse famously told Ben Stein that complex lifeforms could have begun as “molecules on the backs of crystals”. The reason for his comments was that Stein was questioning Ruse on how the information in life could have arisen by chance. The conceit offered is that crystals show a remarkable regularity, which can be reproduced. New crystals will have molecules in the same arrangement as a previous crystal. Therefore, it is said, the regularity of information in a DNA crystal could have arisen in the same way. read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments

By Creation Moments In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, there is a famous scene where Hamlet is talking to Polonius. Hamlet – for various reasons too complicated to go into now – is feigning madness. Polonius finds him reading a book, and asks “What do you read, my Lord?” Hamlet answers “Words, words, words.” read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments     
The Bible is very precise in its language about the timescale of creation. The very concept of our “day” is defined in the first chapter of Genesis. So, is it possible to translate the word “day” to mean “age” to accommodate the required eons of evolution? And does the biblical record have any compatibility with the story of evolution?

Did you know there isn’t a hint of long evolutionary ages in the Bible? Still, some insist that God used evolution to create living organisms—including us. Can Christians believe in both creation and evolution? Click here to listen

By Creation Moments What exactly did God create? How much of everything did He create? An impression is sometimes given, by those who want to accept long, deep timescales, that there is much in the universe, which is just going on and on, and has gone on since eternity past. read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments     
By Creation Moments One question that I get asked a lot, after my talks, is “When did God create angels?” It is a fair question. Angels are created beings, so it is fair to ask when God made them. The assumption in many people’s minds is that God must have made them before the Creation Week. However, this idea does not seem tenable. read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments

By Creation Moments A few months after I was saved, I came across people who did not believe in the theory of evolution. I appreciated their position, and was soon convinced, because I wanted to believe that the whole Bible was true. Nevertheless, not all of these creationists believed that the Creation Week comprised of six literal days. Some pointed to verses in the Bible describing God as the “Ancient of Days”, or referring to “ancient heavens”, as biblical evidence that the world had not necessarily been created to the so-called literal timescale. read more …read more Read more here: [More]
By Creation Moments You have probably heard of Young Earth Creationists and Old Earth Creationists. Wikipedia defines Young Earth Creationism as a belief that the world was made by “direct acts of God less than 10,000 years ago”. Where does the figure of 10,000 years come from? There are a number of scientific calculations and principles that suggest that the world could be no older than 10,000 years – for example, the aging and gradual destruction of comets. Yet other people give different ages. Certain creationists have suggested ages of 30,000, or even a million years. read more …read more [More]
By Creation Moments When I was a university student in the late 70s and early 80s, few students had cars. One of the young men that I shared accommodation with was one of the lucky few. Student cars of that era were infamous! My friend’s car fit into this category. When the fender fell off, he tied it back on with string. read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments     
By Creation Moments In the Big Bang scenario, the supposed expansion of the universe, from the original singularity, can be calculated, based on the strength of the gravitational fields of the matter in the universe. But there is a problem with the calculation. The universe has nowhere near enough matter to cause a strong-enough gravitational field to explain how we view the universe today. read more …read more Read more here: Creation Moments     
By Creation Moments It must have been pretty disconcerting for many people, who heard the famous Orson Welles 1938 radio adaptation of HG Wells’ The War of the Worlds.

By schaffee On this episode of ID the Future, J. Warner Wallace discusses with host Brian Miller the role that Wallace’s work as a cold-case detective played in him first analyzing the evidence for intelligent design, and how that evidence played a key role in his journey. Wallace says he was attracted to the story and person of Jesus but confronted the question of whether science and reason allowed for anything inconsistent with philosophical materialism. Listen in as Miller and Wallace examine the natural world as one would a crime scene. Your browser does not support playing Audio, please upgrade [More]
