Universality of the Flood


Apr 28

Posted: under Answers in Genesis, Creation Blog.
Tags: , ,

Young earth author John Whitcomb speaks about the universality of the flood to prove that it was global in nature.  However, most of the evidence he uses also supports the old earth local flood scenario, and in some cases, it is a much better explanation.  Click here for the review of this Answers Magazine article from Answers in Genesis.

Sand Transported Cross Country

Tags: , , ,

In the fourth installment of Andrew Snelling’s Flood evidences from Answers Magazine, he claims that sand that is transported cross country is evidence of Noah’s global flood.  He makes baseless claims that old earth geologists don’t have a clue about how geologic processes could have done it.  We do have many clues, but Snelling would only refuse to believe them.  Click here for the rebuttal.

Today’s Answers in Genesis daily article by Gary Vaterlaus is about the apparent contradiction in the BIble concerning snakes eating dust.  While I agree with AiG’s answer to this issue, there are other points made in the article which are questionable.  To read the Answers In Creation rebuttal to this article, click here.

How Old is the Earth?

Tags: , , , ,

In a daily article from Answers in Genesis, Bodie Hodge asks the question of the age of the earth.  This article attempts to present evidence from the genealogies in the the Bible, and then it attempts to tear down old earth dating methods.  It is not effective in either.  Click here to read the rebuttal.

Beneath the Cross

Tags: , , , , ,

What is beneath the cross?  Andrew Snelling of Answers in Genesis answers this correctly, in that there are layers of sedimentary rock containing many fossils.  Whereas he sees this as proof of a global flood, the scientific evidence says otherwise.  Click here to read this article.

Transcontinental Rock Layers

The third rebuttal in the series of Answers Magazine’s six-part flood evidences deals with rock layers that stretch across continents.  No new information is presented, as this is merely a rehash of old YEC claims.  The rebuttal can be read here.

Answers Magazine’s second in a series of Flood evidences concerns fossil graveyards.  This rebuttal examines the validity of this claim by young earth author Andrew Snelling, and shows that omission of key information indicates the deceptive tactics that the author used in order to make his point.  The rebuttal to “The World’s a Graveyard” can be read here.

High & Dry Sea Creatures

Tags: , , , ,

The latest rebuttal is for an Answers Magazine article from the January-March 2008 issue.  The title of the article was High & Dry Sea Creatures, and it was the first of a six part series of flood evidences.  The rebuttal can be found here.  The article claims that finding fossils high on mountaintops is proof of a global worldwide flood.  However, there is no scientific proof that the claims by the young earth author, Andrew Snelling, are true.

CMI-Worldwide, The Untold Story


Dec 15

Posted: under Answers in Genesis, Creation Blog, Creation Ministries International.
Tags: , , , ,

As many of you know, Answers in Genesis split two years ago, with the US ministry under Ken Ham essentially casting off the parts of the ministry that stood in his way (he did not want oversight from anyone).  CMI recently posted an article about their new operating practices which is a clear attempt at preventing any such split in the future.  I’ve posted a commentary on this split here.

Dinosaur Killer (Extinction)


Oct 28

Posted: under Answers in Genesis, Creation Blog, Dinosaurs.
Tags: , , ,

Answers Magazine published an article by YEC Paul Taylor which tries to discredit the theory that the dinosaur extinction was caused by a meteorite impact.  The article contains three problems with the theory, all of which fail to provide any proof against the impact theory.  To the contrary, when you do the math, a meteorite impact makes much more sense than his theory that the iridium in the K-T Boundary came from volcanoes.  You can read my rebuttal here.

The “Kind” Argument

Tags: , , ,

Young earth creationists often use the argument that Noah did not have to take all the earth’s species on the ark.  He only took one dog-kind, one cat-kind, etc.  I’ve posted a short article addressing one of these claims in Answers Magazine.  Click here for the article.
