Contested Bones
A Review of "Contested Bones," by Christopher Rupe and Dr. John Sanford
by Ross S. Olson MD

In his personal prologue, John Sanford admits that he, as a mature scientist in the field of genetics, had accepted the story of human evolution without question until he determined that his own field showed the impossibility of that scenario. He collaborated to write this book because when he presents his case against evolution, as laid out in his book Genetic Entropy, people argue that he must be wrong because the fossils clearly show ape to human evolution. In tackling that topic, he answers the objection that neither he nor Christopher Rupe have PhDs in paleoanthropology by pointing out that paradigm-challenging ideas never come from within a field, where "group think" rules. The book systematically analyzes the data, picking up the thread begun in the 1992 book, Bones of Contention by Marvin Lubenow. Time has not helped the evolutionist cause. More specimens and better analytical techniques have solidified the case.

God's Promise to the Chinese

by Ethel Nelson, Richard Broadberry and Ginger Tong Chock

Available from many sources.

Chinese versions available Simplified Characters (Mainland China) Classic Characters (Taiwan, Hong Kong and most overseas Chinese) from Richard Broadberry who also has English versions available.

This is part of a series of books on the relationship of written Chinese Characters to Biblical concepts. For instance the character for "righteousness" is "a lamb" over "me." To disqualify the standard explanation that this merely means taking on the characteristics of a lamb, the "me" is holding a spear. That train of thought would sound like hypocrisy and the Chinese are far more sophisticated than that. The simplest explanation would be that the sacrificial system, instituted by God in Genesis, was known to them.

A garden has four rivers flowing out from the center. Remember the four streams of Eden? Covetousness is a woman between two trees. That should not be a hard one. The character for a ship is a vessel with eight persons aboard. Hmmm, sure sounds like Noah and company.

And the Emperor of China, until the Empire was ended in 1911, offered a sacrifice at the Temple of Heaven for his own sins and the sins of his people, at which time he humbled himself before the Emperor of Heaven.

What is the explanation? The knowledge of the beginnings, known to the early descendents of Noah, was passed down the generations and carried to all parts of the world at the dispursion following the tower of Babel. When the Chinese developed their pictographs, they tied the concepts to familiar stories -- Bible stories, we would say, although this predated the Hebrew Scripture and occurred thousands of miles away.

This book gives an entirely new avenue of confirmation to the Biblical record. And, for the Chinese, shows that their revered ancestors knew the truth. The God of the Bible is the God of THEIR Fathers, too and remnants of His worship, although without full understanding, remained until recent times.
