The heavens and everything in them have long been a source of wonder, curiosity, and excitement. The vastness of space reminds us how small we are (Psalm 8:3–4), and the beauty and majesty of the heavenly bodies declare God’s glory (Psalm 19:1). Well, you can learn more about the heavens in AiG astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner’s new book, The Expanse of Heaven: Where Creation and Astronomy Intersect.   Shop Now This comprehensive new volume, intended as a companion to Dr. Faulkner’s earlier book The Created Cosmos, discusses astronomy by examining the scientific data in light of Scripture.   Read More: [More]

What’s the most amazing, spectacular, greatest, and best wonder of our world?   Well, there have been the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, which include the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. But it’s not any of them!   Today, there’s the New Seven Wonders of the World. Announced in 2007, the list features The Great Wall of China, Petra, and five others. But it’s not any of them!   Then there’s the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, which include the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef. But it’s not any of them! [More]
There are two major competing ideas for explaining the evolutionary origin of life on earth. In one story life emerges near hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor. The other version of the story is closer to Darwin’s original musings: life arises in a warm pond somewhere on early earth. In a recent study, scientists from Canada are claiming to have given the warm ponds theory a boost.1 Read More: Did Meteorites and Warm Ponds Make Life? | Answers in Genesis
One in four Church of England congregations don’t have a single child that regularly attends Sunday morning services. Because that denomination failed to reach the last generation, the current generation won’t be found on church pews either. And, if this trend continues, neither will the next generation. Church attendance in the UK is already down to just over 4%, down from over 45% about 70 years ago! A new report has found the following: Read More: Report: 25% of Church of England Churches Have No Children | Answers in Genesis
To many people, Noah’s Ark sounds like a fantastic voyage that never could have happened. Ancient man didn’t have the technology. A single family would not have enough time, manpower, or resources to complete such a massive undertaking. Oh really?   Noah slapped his pen on the desk in frustration. “That won’t work either.” He buried his head in his hands and prayed. O God, help me. Stirred by his wife’s footsteps, he looked up to see her approaching.   “What’s wrong?” Emzara asked.   He sighed and raised his hands in frustration. “How can I make it strong enough [More]
Besides the arrogance of such statements, this argument has no footing and should be cast off. Mainly, those who make this claim usually define “educated people” as those who accept evolution. Any who disagree fail the test, no matter what their background (e.g., if we follow this ideology, Isaac Newton must have been uneducated). There are many lists of well-educated scholars who look to the Bible for answers (here’s one)—and we could point out Darwin’s own deficit of formal education (he earned a bachelor’s in theology). But the bigger issue is that education—or lack thereof—does not guarantee the validity of [More]
We’re expanding again at the Ark Encounter. Near the Ark, we’re building a 2,500-seat auditorium that will allow us to host workshops, conferences, special speakers, and other programs. Though Legacy Hall, our auditorium at the Creation Museum, seats 900, this bigger auditorium at the Ark will allow us to host even larger events here in Northern Kentucky.

It’s exciting to see the thousands of people who pour into our two world-class attractions, the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum, each day here in Northern Kentucky. Thousands daily are learning about the truth of God’s Word and the gospel, and I enjoy often getting to meet with these guests from across the United States and around the world. We recently had a special guest visit our attractions—well-known pollster George Barna. Read More: George Barna Visits the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter | Answers in Genesis
If you believe in aliens from outer space, it may just be a religious impulse. A recent Scientific American article by Michael Shermer (founder of the Skeptics Society and the publisher of Skeptic magazine) highlights a recent set of studies at North Dakota State University (NDSU) that found “those who report low levels of religious belief but high desire for meaning in life show greater belief in ETIs [Extraterrestrial Intelligence].” Of course, everyone is religious, including atheists and skeptics—they just place their belief in an evolutionary worldview, naturalism, and humanism, instead of in Christ and his Word.   Romans 1 [More]
A guest column by a pastor that took biblical creationists, in particular AiG President Ken Ham, to task for supposedly being antiscience, appeared recently in a Holland, Michigan, newspaper.   In Ken’s absence (he has been in England to speak at a conference), we asked our astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner (who eventually joined Ken in England) to respond on Ken’s behalf. It made sense too because Dr. Faulkner’s PhD in astronomy made him highly qualified to address the contents of the pastor’s column. However, the managing editor told us that the newspaper has a policy of “not print[ing] letters to [More]
Our Western cultures no longer value human life as they once did. The unborn, the disabled, the elderly, and the terminally ill are increasingly viewed as burdens on society instead of having intrinsic value simply because they are humans, made in the very image of God (Genesis 1:27). A recent article in New Scientist reminded me of this truth.   This article was called “Life Extension May Prove to Be a Double-Edged Sword.” The subtitle read, “Today’s middle aged people could routinely live to 120 or more. That means we have time to prepare.” The article claims that antiaging research [More]
Five hundred years ago this month, the Reformation was initiated by a German priest and professor named Martin Luther and continued by others such as Calvin and Zwingli. Luther’s nailing of his famed 95 Theses to a church door in Wittenberg began the Reformation in October 1517.   It was a movement that called the church back to the authority of God and away from the fallible opinions of man, which had severely compromised the clear teaching of the Word of God. The Bible-upholding movement was so powerful that today we are still experiencing the effects of this historical earthquake [More]
On this day in 1517—exactly 500 years ago—the church and culture were changed forever when a defiant monk nailed his 95 Theses to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. This act by Martin Luther is considered the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, a period that would radically reform the church as she returned to God’s Word, not man’s tradition, as the authority for life and practice. A World Primed for Reform   Much has changed over the five centuries since Luther’s bold stance on God’s Word. But the world of Luther is one that parallels our own in [More]
Editor’s Note: First published in St. Louis MetroVoice 5, no. 2 (February 1995).   The bitterest pill to swallow for any Christian who attempts to “make peace” with Darwin is the presumed animal ancestry of man. Even many Christians who uncritically accept evolutionary dogma as “God’s way of creating” try to elevate man and his origin above that of the beasts. Evolutionists attempt to soften the blow by assuring us that man didn’t exactly evolve from apes (tailless monkeys) but rather from ape-like creatures.   This is mere semantics, as may be seen from the fact that many of the [More]
Most evolutionary astronomers talk about the Oort cloud like it’s a fact. Yet they admit no direct observational evidence exists.   Shop Now When I was growing up, the definition of science was simple: “the study of the natural world using the five senses.” This definition placed some limits upon science. For instance, science was restricted to the study of the natural world, so anything supernatural was out of bounds to science. Supernatural things include miracles, angels, souls, and God. Even if something is part of the natural world, it wasn’t considered scientific unless we could detect it with our [More]
Want to do scientific research that doesn’t agree with the cultural narrative? Well, apparently you shouldn’t even bother. Reportedly Bath Spa University in the UK turned down a research application on gender reassignment reversal for being “potentially politically incorrect” and because of its potential to be lambasted on social media, and the university with it. So the scientific study doesn’t matter—what matters is what people already believe and making sure “science” stays in agreement with the status quo, particularly regarding the gender issue.   “It’s Better Not to Offend People”   James Caspian is a psychotherapist whose specialty is working [More]
On October 16, 2017, two press conferences generated much interest when they announced the detection of two neutron stars merging. What particularly caught the public’s attention was the claim that this event produced perhaps 10 times the earth’s mass in gold. How much of this story is established fact and what parts are conjectures? And what does this mean? Let me sort through this. Read More: Spinning Stardust into Gold | Answers in Genesis
Hell ants may have skewered prey with vampire-like scythes to drain their “bug blood.” Locked in amber around the world are countless tiny flowers and small animals ranging from insects to lizards. Among these are hell ants—extinct ants with scythe-like jaws that moved upward in a vertical plane rather than horizontally. However fearsome these sound, you might well wonder how such an ant could eat. Detailed images of a newly discovered species of hell ant in Burmese amber may hold the answer.   All living ants—and lots of fossilized ones—have pincer-like mandibles that converge in front of the face. Their [More]
Want a family vacation that combines hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) activities, robotics, the Creation Museum, stargazing, and family fun together? Look no farther than Ci 5.0 Family STEM Camp with our friends at Camp Infinity.   If you have a young person in your family who loves STEM, you’ll want to bring them to Ci’s Family STEM Camp. The camp director, Dan Wooster (who also serves on the Answers in Genesis board), has found that many parents don’t understand the world of STEM that has perhaps captured their young person. These parents want to better connect with [More]
Editor’s Note: First published in St. Louis MetroVoice 5, no. 3 (March 1995).   The evolutionist’s notion that man evolved by chance from ape-like creatures is largely based upon certain anatomical similarities between apes and men. Being convinced that such similarities “prove” an evolutionary relationship, paleoanthropologists have declared certain fossil apes to be particularly “manlike” and, thus, ancestral to man. Similarly, in an effort to fill the gap between apes and men, certain fossil men have been declared to be “apelike” and, thus, ancestral to at least “modern” man. You might say this latter effort seeks to make a “monkey” [More]
Modern advances in computers have taken artificial intelligence to stunning new levels. If computers can learn and think better than we can, will that threaten our humanity?   I still remember the day as a 10-year-old boy that I got my first calculator—with memory. I’ve loved computers ever since, creating things using logic. The very first program I created allowed me to play baseball against the computer. While the interface was pretty simple, it helped me understand how well machines follow exact instructions. How times have changed.   Back then we were inspired watching Rosie the Robot on The Jetsons [More]

Editor’s Note: First published in St. Louis MetroVoice 5, no. 5 (May 1995).   Evolutionism is a belief system based upon the assumption that there is a purely materialistic explanation for the origin of virtually everything that ever has existed or ever will exist. The essential feature of this belief (often called materialism) is that everything in nature arose spontaneously by a process of self-transformation without the necessity of supernatural intervention. Julian Huxley once said,   The whole of reality is evolution, a single process of self-transformation (Evolution and Genetics, Simon & Shuster, 1955, p. 278).   In today’s public [More]
The wild and woolly world of hybrids is setting evolutionary ideas back on their heels. Species simply don’t arise in the way the evolutionary tree proposes.   What do you get . . . when you cross a zebra with a horse? Give up? Why, a zorse, of course! How about crossing a polar bear and a grizzly? If you said “pizzly,” you’re catching on! Do you think I’m joking about these names? Guess again.   These are real examples of separate species that can breed and produce unique hybrid babies. Biologists have known about them for a long time, [More]

Kentucky, watch a special video presentation, enjoy breakfast and a planetarium show, and, of course, sleep in the museum. Read More: Spend a Night at the Museum | Answers in Genesis
A Christian geologist has asked that his lawsuit against the National Park Service be dismissed after he finally obtained a research permit that had been held up for years by red tape. Andrew Snelling filed suit when the Park Service denied him permission to do ordinary research in the Grand Canyon, charging the reason was his…
