by Jim Pemberton A couple of weeks ago Justin Taylor posted an article entitled “Biblical Reasons to Doubt the Creation Days Were 24-Hour Periods”. Since that time, many have posted articles refuting Justin’s arguments. In this article I will post links to some of the ones I know about and make a couple of observations […]

by Brian Thomas, M.S. * Every generation of believers must settle for itself the core questions of ultimate origins. Where did everything come from?

By Ken Ham […] An aura of mystery surrounds the dinosaurs. Where did they come from? Did they evolve? Did they really live millions of years ago? What happened to them? Are there any living today? Has any human being ever seen a live dinosaur? Children and adults alike are absolutely fascinated by these mysterious […]

The Debate Has Changed | Answers in Genesis

by Mike Matthews […] Within the first three minutes of the Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye debate, it was obvious how radically the creation-evolution debate has changed since the 1970s and 1980s. When Bill Nye “the Science Guy” quipped that creationism is not appropriate for children, the video went viral on YouTube. Ken Ham, president […]

Of Science and Faith: The Scientific Method, A Positive Look

November 21, 2014 by

10

by Jim Pemberton We often hear about how science is based in reason, but we aren’t often taught precisely how this works. We know something of the scientific method, but we don’t know how it relates to logic. We only have some sense that it does. We have come to the part of this series […]

A Discussion with J.W. Wartick on Recent Creation and Apparent Age

November 17, 2014 by

0

by Ken Hamrick Apologist J. W. Wartick recently posted an article on his blog, entitled, “Do Young Earth Creationists Advocate Appearance of Age?” He is an Old-Earth Creationist who argues that appearance of age would be deception on God’s part. I disagree, and have been engaging him in discussion in the comment section. You might find […]

Let Scripture Speak for Itself

November 12, 2014 by

0

by Ken Hamrick When it comes to understanding the Bible, the intended meaning of the author ought to be held in such importance that the text is allowed to speak for itself—with every effort made to not read into the text ideas that were not intended—and to get our clues as to what was intended […]

by Ken Ham on November 3, 2014 Over the years in the AiG ministry, particularly during the time we were constructing the Creation Museum and now as we are building a full-size Noah’s Ark, I have come across many ‘‘Sanballats.” Today, I can’t help but think of how the analogy of Sanballat (a character from […]

Is the Pope Right That “God Is Not Afraid of New Things”? | Around the World with Ken Ham

October 30, 2014 by

Pope Francis is not the first religious leader who has endorsed evolution and the big bang, but he is certainly one of the most influential. Following in the tradition of other recent popes, Pope Francis has compromised biblical authority in favor of man’s ideas in the area of origins. He said, “The Big Bang, that […]

Earlier this month, Bill Nye (TV’s famous “Science Guy”) appeared on Global News’s The Morning Show on October 1, 2014 and, speaking about people who believe in biblical creation, boldly predicted that “In another 20 years those guys will be just about out of business.” Other secularists (I recall some back in the 1970s) have made similar […]

by Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell, Dr. Georgia Purdom, and Dr. Tommy Mitchell on October 20, 2014 The Ebola epidemic in West Africa has already claimed over 4,000 lives—more than all previous Ebola epidemics combined—and it is showing no sign of slowing. The first (and we hope the only) Ebola death on American soil occurred in Dallas, […]

“Creationism Is About … ” Well, the Bible! | Around the World with Ken Ham

October 17, 2014 by

According to a science and religion blogger with the not-so-reliable Huffington Post, the evolution/creation debate is not about science or even the Bible—it’s about gay marriage! Well, that’s certainly news to me! Writer Paul Wallace claims that he could never understand why creationists reject the “tsunami of unambiguous evidence that forces us to believe in […]

I have been invited to dinner. BioLogos published an article this week with the following headline: Ken Ham, We Need a Better Conversation (Perhaps Over Dinner?) But should I go to this proposed dinner? Dr. Deborah Haarsma, president of the theistic evolution organization BioLogos, was responding to my recent blog about statements made by Dr. Hugh […]

Review of Hugh Ross’s Navigating Genesis | Answers in Genesis

October 10, 2014 by

0

Dr. Hugh Ross’s Navigating Genesis: A Scientist’s Journey Through Genesis 1–11 is, sadly, a great tool for steering the uninformed and the gullible into a shipwreck of faith, not for removing stumbling blocks to faith as Dr. Ross misguidedly attempts. Guided by his devotion to the secular dating methods, Dr. Ross distorts the Bible’s claims […]

For the first 250 years of the existence of the church in America, Christians assumed the truth of the doctrine of creation. It was revealed in the Bible and it made the most sense […]
