by David Catchpoole Locust The challenges confronting designers of small robotic aircraft are many. For example, fixed wings, like those used on passenger aircraft, become very inefficient in tiny robotic planes.1 So aeronautical engineers are looking at flapping wings as an alternative. Researchers at the University of Oxford (UK) and the Australian Defence Force Academy decided to study locust flight because locusts are such efficient flyers.2 Any artificial wing that isn’t modelled on the ‘optimised’ design of the insect wing is less efficient. “They can fly for a very long time, over long distances with very little energy,” explained lead [More]
On November 15th, 2012, Dr. Michael Behe gave a presentation at the University of Toronto to a stand only crowd. “How much of life does Darwin‘s theory explain? Most scientists believe it accounts for everything from the machinery of the cell to the history of life on earth. Darwin‘s proposed mechanism — random mutation and natural selection — has been accepted largely as a matter of faith and deduction or, at best, circumstantial evidence. Only now, thanks to genetics, does science allow us to seek direct evidence. The genomes of many organisms have been sequenced, and the machinery of the [More]
By Ken Ham Secularists try to make out that creationists can’t be real scientists! Not only does AiG employ a number of highly qualified scientists with PhD degrees in many fields, but works with many other scientists outside of AiG. Here is just one of many such examples. Our long-time ministry friend Dr. Stewart Turner—he has a PhD in aeronautical engineering from the University of Arizona—comes by from time to time to visit us and walk through the Creation Museum. As a museum member, Dr. Turner is always interested to see what’s new at the museum. On a recent visit, [More]
Two Jehovah’s Witnesses had been confounding & confusing students at a Probe Center Christian study facility across the street from a major university campus for several weeks and as a result of this the director of the facility called in Larry Wessels (YouTube channel: CANSWERSTV; see our 11 other videos on Jehovah’s Witnesses at www.youtube.com websites: www.BIBLEQUERY.ORG, http & www.MUSLIMHOPE.COM) to deal with them. Larry Wessels is joined by Probe Center student Curt Besselman as they engage in theological discussion with Jehovah’s Witnesses Paul & Jason. During the public discussion numerous students sat nearby as well as the director of [More]
www.evanwiggs.com Jason Lisle, Ph.D. Creationist Astrophysicist Most astronomers and astrophysicists today believe in a secular, naturalistic origin of the universe — a big bang that allegedly happened billions of years ago. Few are willing to accept what the Creator Himself has said about the beginning of all things as recorded in the pages of Scripture, and as confirmed by scientific evidence. Answers in Genesis speaker and researcher Dr. Jason Lisle is one of those few astrophysicists that stand on the authority of the Word of God. An astrophysicist with a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado at Boulder, Dr. Lisle [More]
Throughout the 20th century, Darwin’s picture of all organisms on Earth arising from a great Tree, with a single root, dominated biology. Within the past decade, however, a growing number of evolutionary biologists have announced that biology must “go beyond the doctrine of common descent” and that “the Tree of Life is dead.” What discoveries motivate these claims? What are the consequences for the origins debate? In his talk, Dr. Nelson will review the genomic data fracturing the Tree of Life at its base, and what this means for the future of biology. This video file is a 60 minute [More]
According to its critics, intelligent design (ID) is simply creationism repackaged to evade constitutional challenges in the public school science classroom. This criticism, however, ignores both the real history of ID and its actual content. ID is not so much a theory about life’s history — because ID supporters differ widely in their views about the details of Earth history — but a proposal that design is empirically detectable, and thus a fit subject for scientific analysis. In his talk, Dr. Nelson will explain what ID is and what it is not. This video file is a 60 minute seminar [More]

  Published on Aug 21, 2015 Seminar by Spike Psarris Apologetics Symposium Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA May 21, 2015 Description: Did God create the Universe, as the Bible says? Or did the Universe form itself in a Big Bang event, as secular astronomers claim? A close look at the scientific literature reveals a surprising truth: the best secular models predict that most of the things we see in space, including stars, galaxies, and the planets of our Solar System, cannot have formed by themselves. In effect, the models say the heavenly bodies cannot exist. Thus, these models fail to [More]
Think of a larger symphony producing the works of Mozart or Beethoven. It all begins with the individual playing his part. This is much like how our body operates with its 11 systems working in concert. Sadly, schools and the media erroneously teach that the human body is the result of “millions of years” of Darwinian evolution. No credit is given to the One who created these amazing systems designed to work as one. Consider our eye construction, the dynamic skeleton, the ability to hear the faintest sound, the brain’s amazing circuitry. The human body — a testament to our [More]
nwcreation.net The evidence for the global Genesis Flood is provided by all the hundreds of flood traditions from all over the world. Evidence for the Flood is found in sedimentary rocks that commonly cover huge distances and show little or no erosion between layers—unlike how mainstream geologist interpret the rocks based on small events over millions of years. Trillions of fossils in the sedimentary rocks provide powerful evidence for a global Flood, since fossilization today is rare (remember that mainstream scientists rely on present processes to explain the past). Moreover, the fossil record does not show evolution because of the [More]
NWCreation.net | Darwinian thought has not only damaged our scientific knowledge of the world–it has also led to the moral decline in the West. Many leaders have tried to apply evolutionary science to moral issues, and the results have been devastating. Darwinian evolution denies that man was created in God’s image and has led to the de-valuing of human life. It has played a significant role in the eugenics (“good genes”) movement, ultimately leading to atrocities such as the holocaust, abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. The influence of evolutionary thought on Planned Parenthood, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and American culture [More]
nwcreation.net | We will learn about an important and liberating new way of looking at organisms and their environment: “Programmed Filling” – a Biblically consistent and scientifically superior paradigm that explains exactly what happens at the organism-environment interface. Three points of departure mark the old and new understanding: 1) natural selection exists only as a misleading mental construct; 2) usage that acknowledges it in any way greatly dishonors the Lord; 3) programmed filling – a God-ordained, organism-centered, purpose-driven mechanism – is reality. By recognizing the explanatory power of programmed filling, believers will actually have a communicable and scientifically accurate pushback [More]

The Heavens Declare by Chris W. Ashcraft, MS., M.Ed. Seattle Creation Conference, September 2011. Modern astronomy offers mankind a look at the cosmos never before seen. The size and beauty of astronomical bodies is a testimony to the magnificence that is our Father in heaven. This presentation aptly uses the scale of the cosmos to guide viewers to a better appreciation of the Glory of God as is revealed by the heavens. Drawing from images taken by space telescopes and spacecraft, we will tour the solar system, distant nebulae, and galaxies that testify of the Creator’s power. This video is [More]
A variety of evidences for the receding of the Floodwater off the continents will be provided. Geological evidence is first presented for differential vertical tectonics to drain the Floodwater. As the Floodwater first drains as wide currents, great erosion occurs with the formation of planation surfaces and the long transport of resistant rocks. As more and more land is exposed above the Floodwater, the water becomes more channelized forming another set of unique landforms. Water and wind gaps, pediments, and submarine canyons will be described. All these features are very difficult, if not impossible, to explain by the uniformitarian paradigm, [More]
Origins – Evolution Roadblocks with Ralph Muncaster Mr. Muncaster holds a BS in engineering and an MBA from the University of Colorado. A former atheist and hardcore Bible skeptic, Ralph spent 15 years conducting research to dispute the Bible. To Ralph, it seemed that the Bible could not possibly be consistent with such sciences as anthropology, molecular biology and physics. Armed with an engineering-education and a critical, questioning mind, to his surprise, the more he searched, the more evidence he found that supported the Bible’s claims. Mr. Muncaster has taught classes in Christian Apologetics and World Religion in universities including [More]

There is a huge gap between cosmological data and theory. Many different cosmologies can explain the same data. Cosmology needs presuppositions, many of which are unverifiable. We examine a number of ancient, Big Bang, and creationist models. Although a cosmological model may have serious short-comings, any favored cosmology can be saved by ad hoc devices. Ultimately, cosmological models are assessed in terms of one’s worldview. A Biblical cosmology differs on the nature of reality, origins and eschatology.
