Genesis Contracted

This cartoon came to me via God of Evolution on Facebook. It looks to me more like “If the God of Genesis had Shopped at IKEA.” The world we see around us looks more like the work of creation was contracted out to natural processes, including life to a process of evolution. [Read more...]

Childish Literalism

What kind of childish literalism reads the anthropomorphic language of Genesis and concludes that the Bible can only be read as an historical rendering of the origins of the universe? – Rev. Joseph Phelps, “Religion and science call for dialogue, not debate”   [Read more...]

People Who Debate Creation vs. Evolution

Bob Cargill shared the above image on Facebook. It has a point. Ham was untrustworthy on most scientific details he mentioned. Nye was regularly wide of the mark when attempting to deal with the Biblical material (although Ham's treatment of the Bible is no less problematic in many respects). Who would you want to see [Read More...]

Ken Ham and Bill Nye: Who is on the Bible’s Side?

Ken Ham says that there is genuine scientific debate about “molecules to man” evolution. The very phrase that he uses shows that his real target isn’t evolutionary biology.

Believing Genesis

The above is based on a Facebook comment I wrote in response to a question that pitted the Biblical creation account against “Darwinism”: It is indeed a false dichotomy. Moreover, if you are talking about the details then you have to believe the order in Genesis 1 and the different order in Genesis 2, and [Read More...]

If God Created Humans From Dirt…

From God of Evolution. Is it safe to assume that everyone will understand that this question is a parody of the young-earth creationist question “If we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?” and that it alludes to Genesis 2? I previously made something similar and shared it here – “Why is there still [Read More...]

God, Moses, and Aaron in Conversation

The following is a fictional conversation composed by Eric Hatfield: Moses: Hey Aaron, how do you spell “quark” in Hebrew? Aaron: No idea. What do you want to know that for? M: It’s Yahweh again.
