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? Post #2 in a series about 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? Post #1 in a series on the global flood
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
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?
