Say NO to Fundamentalism

Steve Caruso shared the above image he made, in a post which suggests that the most relevant verse in the Bible when it comes to young-earth creationism might not be something in Genesis 1-3, but Matthew 18:6. Click through to read the rest.   [Read more...]

The Jesus Way or the YEC Way?

I took some words I wrote last year in a comment on another blog and turned them into an image. [Read more...]

Chromosomes and Creationism

The above is based on a comment I made in a Facebook group: The evidence for chromosomal fusion in humans compared to other primates is unambiguous evidence either of common ancestry, or of a Creator who deceitfully made it look like we share a common ancestor with other primates. I cannot fathom why anyone who [Read More...]

But that reaction itself reflects a problematic understanding of the passage. I doubt [Read More...]

Maybe this is why young-earth creationism is so disturbing and offensive. Young-earth creationists will pretend that mainstream science journals are not filled with abundant evidence for evolution – the course it has taken, the processes involved, and the genetic changes that underpin it. They will point to the things that scientists do not yet know, [Read More...]
