Testing Evolution vs. Direct Creation

An interesting video, worth sharing with those who claim that evolution is untestable and that the differences between mainstream biology and young-earth creationism are merely due to the same evidence being viewed through different lenses of presuppositions. [Read more...]

Antievolutionism is a Tool of Satan

Someone drew attention to this image which they spotted on a Facebook page, “Evolution's Family Tree”: I tried to respond to it in a manner that the maker of the image might be able to understand. And so I left a comment that it is antievolutionism that is a tool of Satan. It is a [Read More...]

Worst Conspiracy Ever (Dinosaur Skin and Creationism)

Eye on the ICR has a post about the discovery of some soft material from a dead dinosaur that had survived down to the present day. Not surprisingly, some young-earth creationists have tried to misrepresent it in order to imply that it shows that dinosaurs lived more recently. But it does nothing of the sort, [Read More...]

Quote of the Day (Karl Giberson)

Science is open to correction. In the event that evolution does become a “theory in crisis,” we will read about that in Scientific American, Nature and Science, not the blogs of the anti-Darwinian culture warriors. – Karl Giberson, “Evolution’s Refusal to Die,” The Huffington Post [Read more...]

Mars Attacks Young-Earth Creationism

Ian Millington recently drew my attention to an article about NASA’s Mars rover, and pointed out to me an interesting implication for young-earth creationism. If young-earth creationism is correct, and geological strata we see on Earth result from a global flood, then why do we find such strata in rocks on Mars? Of course, one can [Read More...]

Young-Earth Creationists Living in Sin

It is interesting to read the sorts of things one finds on the Answers in Genesis website about sin. There are studies on the topic by the organization’s leaders and members, as well as classic sermons by Charles Spurgeon. For instance, Spurgeon says: “Every man who believes Christ obeys him; believing and obeying always run side by [Read More...]

Young-Earth Creationism vs. Sodom and Gomorrah

In the Biblical story about Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham pleads with God to spare the cities even if just a certain minimum number of righteous people are found in it. Eventually he bargains God down to ten. The story then unfolds that, although there aren’t that many righteous people to be found in the city, [Read More...]

Ken Ham Continues to Contradict Himself

We’ve recently heard Ken Ham denying knowledge of where the notion of humans riding dinosaurs comes from, when it was his own books. Now we have Ham denying the stance that his own representative, Terry Mortenson, articulated during a recent visit to Butler University. As Joel Watts noted, Ham’s claim that it was atheists who were [Read More...]

Testing Young-Earth Creationism

Cdbren, a young-earth creationist commenter who was caught engaging in dishonest practices on this blog a while back, has made a reappearance, this time to (among other things) complain about my focusing on chalk deposits like the famous White Cliffs of Dover as counter-evidence to young-earth creationism. But as commenter Ian pointed out, it is [Read More...]
