"So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city."
Mitochondria generate energy inside each of your cells. They have their own DNA, which is passed directly from mother to child. This fact and the known rate at which mitochondrial DNA mutates has led...
Just how does the modern geologist tell the age of a rock by simply looking at it? For that matter, where do all those millions of years come from and how can they be reconciled with Genesis? Until the 17th century most people of Europe and Britain believed the biblical account of creation and a global Flood. They considered history as “static” but by the late 1600’s this began to change to “progressive history.” Both invention and discovery gave this impression. Genesis tells of mankind’s Fall from a noble beginning.
Eastern mysticism begins with the idea that how you think about reality fundamentally alters that reality. There is at least a grain of truth to the idea. We say something like it when we say, "One man's meat is another man's poison". The eastern philosophy of controlling reality by how we think about it gave rise to the martial arts disciplines such as Karate and Kung Fu. The question this study will seek to answer is: Does how we think about reality change reality, or does it simply change what we are willing or able to do within the same reality?
Critics of the Biblical faith say that a faith which understands the Bible on its own terms is an assault on the thinking mind. Atheists consider the Biblical faith a rejection of human mental abilities.

More than one Christian has pictured heaven as a place where the saved will lie about all day, perhaps strumming a harp while sitting on a cloud. Many, at least, see heaven as one big permanent vacation. But could we really be happy with nothing to do—forever? Does the Bible portray work as a necessary evil which is a result of sin entering the world?
Dr Robert Carter explains the human genome is anything but simple. In fact, it is a super-complex computer operating system that far exceeds anything created by humans to date. The genome perhaps more than anything else...
