Can You Be A Point Person?

Many Christians shy away from the issue of creation vs evolution.

Why? Because they think creation is either not important or not credible.

Regular TCCSA attenders know that creation is actually far more credible than evolution and is much more important than most realize. Believing that God used evolution or took millions of years, makes Him either clumsy, cruel or indifferent and makes the Bible unreliable from the beginning.

But the issue is also not one of pure intellectual discussion. There are psychological and spiritual barriers to even considering the evidence. To be a point person requires humility, prayer, love and persistence.

Search For The Truth

Bruce Malone writes, "After leaving Dow and launching into full time Christian ministry (almost 3 years ago), we have finally updated our web site to make all of our resources easily accessible and available AT ABSOLUTELY NO COST. Every video lecture, audio teaching, and most books are now available for instant download. In addition, there are links to other major creation resources, my up-to-date speaking schedule, and a much improved order/donation basket.

Take a few minutes to poke around the new Search for the Truth web site, add a link to your favorites menu, and forward a link to others you know. I think you'll use this site as an ongoing resource for equipping yourself and others with a foundational knowledge on the importance of creation."

Finely Graded Strata Deposited Simultaneously
Do Layers Prove Long Ages? Experiments Disprove That Long Unexamined Assumption

"Experiments In Stratification" by Guy Berthault, A small screen video of his famous 1993 stratification experiments showing that finely graded strata are not necessarily sequential but may be simultanous and can be formed rapidly.

What Does Global Warming Have To Do With Creation?

Like the Creation/Evolution issue:

* It is "science" by consensus
* Discussion is not allowed (dissenters want discussion)
* Key evidence is ignored
- there have been cycles of warming and cooling in the past
- Greenland was farmed by the Vikings long before industrialization
- Carbon dioxide follows warming as the oceans warm and release it
* Dissenters are vilified
* It assumes that man can save the earth
* It leaves out God's plan
* It accepts billions of years of earth history
* And longs for dramatic population reduction.

Does it strike anybody as strange that carbon dioxide -- which is present at a level of about 5% in the air we all exhale and is absolutely necessary for the growth of green plants on which all animal life on earth ultimately depends for food -- is designated as a pollutant?

Will we need to purchase "carbon credits" to keep breathing? Since water is an even more powerful "greenhouse gas" will that be next? Have we entered "Wonderland" and not noticed?

Hey, I just thought of a way to cut Health Care costs!

Interesting thought: "Climategate" (the revelation of incriminating e-mails detailing underhanded suppression of dissent) has not provoked a media feeding frenzy like Watergate did.

Child Abuse?
by Ross Olson

Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion and Christopher Hitchens in God is Not Great claim that Christianity and Creationism are child abuse because they indoctrinate the young and vulnerable.

But what about those who tell kids, "You are an accidental collection of molecules. You not only have no intrinsic value or significance but when you die, it is all over. Also, you are not even the pinnacle of evolution but part of an accidental species that will probably be replaced by cockroaches. We are not even sure about free will... but we are pretty sure you are destroying the earth. And by the way, there are too many of you. Now hurry along, children, your next class is on Self Esteem."

Dancing with the Devil, Juggling the Facts

Bill Nye, "the science guy," has enhanced his star status by appearing on "Dancing with the Stars." He appears to be light on his feet although recent statements indicate that he is intellectually lead-footed.

His diatribe against creation began with the assertion that America is at the forefront of science and technology because of freedom of thought. He then turned right around and complained that too many people do not think as he does. I am not privy to the state of Mr. Nye's soul, which is real and precious whether or not he thinks he has one. But I do fear for his eternal destiny since such elementary errors of logic for a man of intelligence and learning indicate that he is clearly suppressing the truth.

Ross Olson engaged in a little on line debate with National geographic blogger, Greg Laden, on Fox News Local affiliate Channel 9 Twin Cities on September 24, 2013. www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/19628929/advocates-debate-bill-nyes-suggestion-to-not-teach-creationism

"The Evolutionary Dynamics of Digital and Nucleotide Codes: A Mutation Protection Perspective"

Willaim DeJong writes of a newly published study: "The article refers to the largely unknown fact that both digital codes (computer programs) and nucleotide codes (DNA) are protected against mutations. The article concludes that living nature continuously adapts to changing circumstances by gene-regulation and the recombination of gene variants ('alleles') and selection. These mechanisms for random change and selection neither produce new alleles nor expand the length of the nucleotide code, and operate within the boundaries of mutation protection."

    Answers In Genesis Museum Got A Reaction From Opponents

    The New York Times features an article that reports the technical and artistic excellence of the museum, located just across the Kentucky border from Cincinnati, but expresses amazement at the worldview. After a reasonable description of the experience, the writer ends with puzzlement that scientific evidence is offered -- obviously assuming that Christian belief is a leap in the dark. Then he makes what he assumes to be the "gotcha" point that if miracles are allowed, then we have a chaotic universe. Hopefully the "cognitive dissonance" that results from seeing that bright talented people have these "strange beliefs" will cause many to reconsider their prejudices.

    Can anybody notice the problem in the following statement? Eugenie Scott wrote: "To scientists, using God to explain natural phenomena of any kind violates the practice of methodological naturalism, in which scientific explanations are limited only to natural causes." (Hint: Does science encompass all of reality?)

    The Kansas 2005 Hearings contain this statement by Mr. John Calvert: "A philosophy professor at Concordia University of Wisconsin was asked about scientists who have theistic beliefs and also accept evolution. This is what he said: 'The mere fact that you have somebody who holds two beliefs, A and B, does not show that they are logically consistent.' He went on to say, 'It might be that some of these people are confused.' And you will remember the significant number of people walking around here wearing a tag that said 'confused' after that statement."

    Who Is Your Creator
    There was a large billboard questioning evolution near Washington Avenue & Interstate 35W in downtown Mineapolis.
    It earned a Star Tribune editorial stating that "evolution is a fact." It is a high honor to irritate those guardians of political correctness.

    Ironically, this billboard stands just before the bridge that collapsed on August 1, 2007. Were the victims just cosmic accidents or creations of a loving God, Whom they had either accepted or rejected prior to their sudden demise?

    The Romans One Test

    Romans One indicates that the existence of God and something of His nature are so apparent from the things He has made that those who fail to recognize it are "without excuse." In fact, the passage states that they are actually "suppressing the truth." In what ought to be frightening to those who are doing it, Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, writes that this places the offenders under "the wrath of God."

    Now, of course, atheists think they have nothing to fear since they do not believe in God. Romans One, however, tells us that God does not believe in atheists - at least honest atheists - because He states that the evidence for His existence, eternal power and divine nature is plain in creation, and only avoided by active suppression.

    Yet there are Christians - who ought to know better - that still endorse a cosmology indistinguishable from that of an atheistic thinker. In other words, they agree with everything mainstream materialistic science comes up with but simply say, "God did it like this."

    Evolutionary Instruction Is Scholastic

    Proponents of evolution, claiming to be products of the Enlightenment, have actually reverted to the pre-modern mode of instruction. At the time Francis Bacon defined modern experimental science, the Universities were dominated by Aristotelian Scholastics. This hold was so strong that independent Natural Philosophy Societies had to be started to provide a forum for the new thinking.

    In the Universities, students were given, as authoritative, the teachings of the Greeks, mainly Aristotle, and deviation was not tolerated. Science was done by starting with a "known" principle, performing deductive reasoning from that principle (essentially "thought experiments") and finally selecting examples from nature to illustrate - not prove - the point.

    Ironically, evolutionists, instead of continuing the Baconian legacy of observation, hypothesis, experimentation and modification, have reinstituted the Scholastic format. Students are authoritatively taught "the fact of evolution." They may be given "thought experiments" such as "describe the selective advantage of flight." They may then select examples from nature that illustrate that point.

    Their actual philosophy is less like Aristotle (who believed in cause and effect) than some of the others, like Epicurus (who believed that atoms have the innate power of "swerve" -- the ancient "uncertainty principle") and Pythagoras (who seemed to nearly worship nature and think that it was essentially mathematical).

    No amount of contrary evidence is considered enough to re-consider the basic proposition of evolution because it is accepted on authority. The data are not examined systematically but only as they support the hypothesis.

    So who are the "pseudo-scientists" after all?

Definition of Evolution

Recently evolutionists have retreated from defending abiogenesis and claim that it has never been considered part of evolution. (It is interesting that this has happened after creationists effectively showed the physical impossibility of life arising by natural processes.) Yet this has not always been the case.

George Gaylord Simpson wrote: "Evolution is a fully natural process, inherent in the physical properties of the universe, by which life arose in the first place and by which all living things, past or present, have since developed, divergently and progressively" ("The World Into Which Darwin Led Us," Science, 1960, p. 969).

And, of course, for those who want to defend a materialistic world view, it is absolutely essential that there be a non-supernatural origin of life, and indeed of matter, energy and time, whether they want to include it under "evolution" or give it a separate name.

If they say "we have no theory of the natural origin of life," then it means that the only other choice -- a supernatural origin -- must be the working hypothesis.

Creation Research Society

POLLEN PROBLEMS (For the evolutionist!)
In the 1980's, Creation Research Society repeated and confirmed the earlier research of Clifford Burdick, finding intact pollen in the PreCambrian strata of the Grand Canyon, which according to standard chronology should have had no flowering plants. They also found 200 million years missing with the layers above and below the missing strata interbedded (blending) and no erosion. This means their deposition was continuous without any significant gap of time.

C. S. Lewis

There are all sorts of different reasons for believing in God, and here I will mention only one. It is this. Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen for physical or chemical reasons to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It is like upsetting a milk-jug and hoping that the way the splash arranges itself will give you a map of London. But if I cannot trust my own thinking, of course I cannot trust the arguments leading to atheism and therefore the reason to be an atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought or anything else: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God.
