Richard Dawkins - #1 Enemy of Christians? Editorial Comment by Warren Krug (January-February, 2007)
He’s called "the world’s most prominent atheist." He’s confident that the theory of evolution has eliminated any possibility that God exists. He treats religious faith as a lethal disease and billions of believers as being rather stupid.
The Creation of Eve in the Light of Molecular Biology, by Kautz, Darrel This is a reprint of a much older article. Darrel Kautz went home to the Lord in 1993.
Excerpt: "The creation of Adam and Eve were miraculous events, first Adam and then Eve from Adam. The information in this section is not an attempt to show scientifically how God created Eve; that is impossible to do. Rather, its purpose is to show, on the basis of molecular biology, that the biblical account of Eve’s creation falls into the category of reality as we know it, and not into the realm of myth as some persons believe."
Why Morality is Inexplicable in Naturalism; the Particular Case of Michael Ruse Review by Jeffrey Stueber (September/October, 2006)
Review of Michael Ruse's book, "Taking Darwin Seriously."
Evolutionists have, for some time, attempted to wrap morality around their Darwinian finger so they can provide a complete perspective on every facet of reality. But, as Michael Ruse shows, doing so is extremely doubtful.
Shaky Creationism: Questionable Arguments Sometimes Used by Creationists by Warren Krug (May-August, 2006)
Just as many evolutionist "evidences" and arguments (e.g. recapitulation theory, peppered moths, Piltdown man, Mars rock) have fallen by the wayside over the years, creationists too have had to withdraw some of their talking points.
King David and his fellow psalmist lived between 1000 before Christ and the date of the last Psalmist is unknown. According to many today, those people lived in the dark ages and had no idea of creation, God, preservation or even science. This would make many of the Psalms as much as 3,000 years old. We need to remember they were probably 3,000 years closer to the original creation. With that in mind, let’s see what they have to say about God’s Creation.
Review - Saudi Arabia's Jabal Al Lawz--Is It the Real Mt. Sinai? Review by Warren Krug (March / April, 2006) The Search for the Real Mt. Sinai, DVD
As every Sunday school teacher and student knows, Mount Sinai, the mountain on which God in flame and smoke delivered the Ten Commandments to Moses, is located in the southern portion of the Sinai peninsula. At least, that’s what Bible maps show, and they can’t be wrong, can they?
Review of Larry Witham's "By Design: Science and the Search for God" (San Francisco, Encounter Books, 2003)
Witham's book is a tremendous account of the scientific changes that drove evolutionist beliefs and the scientific finds that propelled theories of intelligent design. Hence, we find a dialogue between the two and it is no longer fashionable to speak of science as if it stands in opposition to religion. Science, it seems, confirms the theologian, and, as Witham points out, evolutionists no longer feels as certain about their victory over God as they did when Julian Huxley announced that Darwin had banished God from reality.
Excerpt: "There are two competing world views regarding origins: 1. Evolution teaches us that stars have changed into people over billions of years, and that there never was a worldwide flood. 2. Creation teaches us that God created everything, including stars and people, thousands of years ago, and that there really was a worldwide flood.
We all see the same fossils, same rocks, same animals, and same universe. Why are there two world views?"
Ed. Comment - Role for Science in Biblical Interpretation
The Flood and How It Relates to Science by Ted Nommensen
Sections: The earth before the Flood The purpose for the Flood. The chronological events of the Flood as related in the Bible. The effects on plants during the Flood. The effects on animals living at the time of the Flood. The possible effect on the geology of the Earth as a result of the Flood.
Excerpt: "When I had a chance to study the first chapters of Genesis as an elementary school student, I thought it odd that God seemed so inactive on the first day of Creation. After all, what did He do on this day besides creating light? Compare that to the third day of Creation, for instance, when He was busy bringing forth dry land and creating all the types of vegetation, or the fifth day, when He created all the creatures of the sea and those of the air. However, a careful examination of Scripture along with a bit of logical reasoning (and a dose of speculation now and then) reveals that God was far more active on Day One than merely creating what we call visible light."
Grasping for Straws - The Indonesian 'Hobbit' Editorial Comment by Warren Krug
Excerpt: "Working on a remote Indonesian island, Australian scientists have reported the finding of bones of a human dwarf species which they have named Homo floresiensis or Flores Man and nicknamed "The Hobbit" after JRR Tolkienâ€™s fantasy creatures."
