New Theistic Evolution Website


Aug 19

Tags: ,

An excellent new Theistic Evolution website has been launched by some prominent scientists.  Dr. Francis Collins is a physician and geneticist best known for spearheading the Human Genome Project.  He started the Biologos Foundation in order to address the culture war between science and religion.  With the help of a team of scientists, the new website, www.biologos.org, seeks to explain how science and the Bible are compatible, and in particular, how evolution could have been used by God as a creative tool.  A resource such as this has long been needed.  Please take the time to check it out.

The Last Dinosaur’s Tombstone


Jun 12

Posted: under Creation Blog, Dinosaurs, Institute for Creation Research.
Tags: , , ,

In a classic example of young earth deception, Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research misleads his readers concerning the report of dinosaurs surviving past the end of the Cretaceous Period.  Judging from the source material that he used, he must have willfully decided to ignore the scientific data in an effort to argue for a young earth.  Apparently, it is more important to argue for a young earth than it is to be truthful in reporting the facts.  Click here to read the rebuttal.

Universality of the Flood

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.

The Rightful Owner?

Tags: , ,

Tas Walker of Creation Ministries International writes in Creation Magazine that God is the rightful owner of the universe.  I agree.  However, if we do as Tas suggests, and compare the Bible’s claims (YEC) with science, then the result will not be good for the church.  Click here to read.

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.

Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research reports on the discovery of stone blades that date to 500,000 years ago.  This pushes the development of these blades back by 200,000+ years.  Does this mean that anthropologists are “frustrated” by this discovery, as Thomas claims?  Click here to read the rebuttal.

Ancient Oxygen-Rich Rocks


Apr 08

Tags: , , ,

Scientists believe that the early earth, prior to 2.5 billion years ago, did not have an oxygen-rich atmosphere.  The Institute for Creation Research reported today that there is a recent discovery of oxygen-rich rocks from 3.46 billion years ago, and they claim this is proof that the earth always had an oxygen atmosphere.  Does this new find require scientists to now believe that the early earth had an oxygen atmosphere?   Click here for more on this issue.
