The Grand Canyon: Monument to an Ancient Earth

Since the Ark Encounter is opening in seven days as a tourist attraction dedicated to the promotion of pseudoscience and the twisting of the Bible, I have decided to offer an alternative seven days of better views of creation scientifically, scripturally, and morally, ones that provide honest and accurate information, and thus do not mislead [Read More…]

Gotta Ark ‘Em All

Feel free to make germane comments about the upcoming grand opening of the Ark Encounter… [Read more…]

Swing By and Pick Up the Llamas

Yesterday’s Bizarro comic highlighted the absurdity of the Noah’s ark story when taken literally. One has to either have the Earth so completely changed and reshaped that it would involve a greater cataclysm than anything the Bible explicitly states or the geological record bears witness to, or one has to imagine other people in other [Read More…]

Making the World a Better Place

The Bible: Better With Godzilla?

A Missing Page From Genesis

A friend drew my attention to this cartoon from People in White Coats. I’m a bit confused, to be honest. The shape of the bodies being thrown overboard makes me think that they are supposed to be Noah and his family. Were they not primates?! Or is the idea that they were made from modeled [Read More…]
