Why so many Crabs?

The debate continues among secular scientists who seek to resolve the mystery as to why so many crab varieties exist by placing the question within the context of evolution. Their quest is futile. Crabs didn’t evolve. In fact, nothing evolved. But, “science” as it presents itself today ignores the most basic fact about their favored theory of origins: There is no theory of origins. I finished undergrad, and then did my graduate program, at a B&M university between 2009-2013. Fairly recent, I’d say. I chose to purchase physical textbooks as opposed to buying e-copies. My degrees are in the sciences.  I … Continue reading Why so many Crabs?

Noah’s Days

(Photo retrieved from https://www.gospelimages.com/paintings/11/noah-warns-the-people) 2Peter 2:5 says, “If He (God) did not spare the ancient world when He brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;” Consider the fact that Noah did not labor in silence as he built the ark. Here, the the Holy Spirit, through the Apostle Peter, informs us that Noah was a “preacher of righteousness.”  The word in 2Peter 2:5 that’s rendered into English as “preacher” is κήρυκα, a form of κῆρυξ. A commonly used word in Greek antiquity outside of the NT, it often was used … Continue reading Noah’s Days

Worshipping God: Have you begun the daily and personal worship of Almighty God?

One “Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness.” Exodus 7:16, CSB   One evening, during prayer, I thought God said that I should begin praying to Him on a small rug that I’d purchased a few years earlier. “Nonsense,” I thought. “God wouldn’t say such a thing. It must have been my own brain saying that.” Having listened to my own brain in the past, and knowing the disastrous places it often led me to, I decided to not listen. Years later, I did listen. I began using that rug in my time with … Continue reading Worshipping God: Have you begun the daily and personal worship of Almighty God?

Why’s there a tree in the column? Post #2 in a series about the Global Flood

The old Chevelle I began learning to drive as a teen had a three-speed manual transmission.  The shifting lever was on the steering column, and the pattern was in an H-shape with reverse at the near-top, first gear at the near-bottom, then second gear up at the far-top, and (finally!) third gear down at the far-bottom. That’s known as a “Three on the Tree” column shifter. As a kid just learning to drive, the manual transmission was hard enough to master without requiring my attention be drawn to the steering column as I aimed that screaming rocket sled down the … Continue reading Why’s there a tree in the column?

So, are you dating right now? Post #1 in a series on the global flood

Focusing on the evidence, you ask yourself: “Can the self-watering system tell me the last time anyone was here?” That the flood occurred evokes measures of mirth in a good many of you.  You’re way past considering it.  It’s a fairy tale; a myth.  At best, it’s a fictional story included in the book of Genesis to give us religious messages. I disagree.  I believe the Genesis account of the global flood is not only true, but it provides accurate information that can unlock vast measures of scientific insight as to how and why the Earth looks & behaves as … Continue reading So, are you dating right now?

There’s a Gap in Your Day-Age

I recently told friends that they had no reason to fear the book of Genesis, it’s account of creation, and the story of the global flood.  In fact, I said, they could embrace Genesis as truth without fear of what pop science would have them believe about the Earth. I’m convinced thoroughly that it’s so. Before I move on to offer reasons for Christians to applaud Genesis in future posts, let me first take on two half-measures that (though they should have been banished to the junkyard of false theories a long time ago) persist in the church to this … Continue reading There’s a Gap in Your Day-Age

Majestic Moth?

This morning I killed a moth. As incredible as any living thing, the capabilities of a common moth are quite astounding, if you’ll just take a moment to think about them.  Some moths, for instance, have so sensitive an array of sensing organs that males can detect pheromones from a female of his species at distances of up to five miles away.  Five miles!  Can you imagine?  Consider how small moths are, how infinitesimal the pheromones must be that are put out by a single little female moth, and how vast the volume of air is between she and her … Continue reading Majestic Moth?

But What About You…

Arguing through a preconceived notion can be tricky.  Just ask Philip… Chapter One of the Gospel of John records the events of Jesus in the province of Galilee calling into service some of the Apostles. Beginning in verse 43: The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.” Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida.  Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” “Nazareth! Can anything good … Continue reading But What About You…
