Today's Creation Moment

The Days in Genesis
Genesis 1:5
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day...

Creation and Climate Change

Author: 
Ian Taylor

The Creation: The first chapter of Genesis tells us that God created herbs and fruit trees on the third day, birds and sea creatures on the fifth day and cattle, beast, creeping things and man on the sixth day then declared everything to be “very good.” Reasonably, we assume this to mean that death was not part of the original creation. Thus, the climate was perfect, man was eternal and had no need to wear protective clothing. God instructed Adam to tend and keep the garden – the oldest profession!

Entropy: The Direction Of Time

Author: 
Mark Cadwallader

Imagine you are watching a movie with a car chase scene. The driver of one car rolls out just before his automobile plunges headlong over a cliff, and the car smashes against rocks as it tumbles down, breaking into pieces and finally exploding. You can easily tell whether the film is run forward or backward. If you ran it backward, you would see an explosion produce a broken and dented automobile, broken pieces jumping back into place, dents coming smooth as the car collides with rock on its way back up the cliff, and a man rolling into the backward speeding car.

Stretching Out the Heavens

Author: 
by Donald S. Clark

Astronomers are looking again. It seems that they can't agree on the age of the universe, which is calculated from the Hubble constant. Last year new measurements were made using the orbiting Hubble telescope focused on the galaxy cluster in the constellation Virgo. These were to be the most accurate measurements yet. But when the answers came in, the universe appeared to be younger than the oldest stars (8-11 billion years for the age of the universe as compared to 15 billion years for the oldest stars). This was not very comforting to the astronomic and cosmological communities.

Oceanography

OCEANOGRAPHY – “Let the waters be gathered.”

In the last twenty-five years, a complete reversal of our understanding of the history of the earth has occurred. It is generally known as the geological revolution, and it has been produced mainly through the efforts of ocean scientists.

God Describes His Design for the Sea

Author: 
Pastor Paul A. Bartz

In Genesis 1:9-10, we have the account of God's separation of the land and the water, which resulted in the creation of the continents and the oceans. We know that God here summarizes what He did because in Job 38:4-18 God provides us with more of the details of His design for the ocean. As we read the details of Job 38:4-18, we see that God's design anticipates needs which we could never have known about, had the design of the oceans been left up to us.

God's Control of the Sea

Author: 
Pastor Paul A. Bartz

God controls the seas with more ease than we control a glass of water. While Scripture is revealing God's awesome and comforting power over the seas, it also reveals scientifically accurate facts to us about the seas. This accuracy is important, for if God's Word is accurate only when it speaks in a comforting way to us, we have perhaps the strangest God that man ever thought of.

A note on calendar dates. The earliest times for which we have archaeological and historical evidences are those of Babylon and its empire. The Babylonians, or an earlier civilization, noted that the Sun took 360 days to complete its cycle; this has always been known as the “solar year” but today we view this as the time taken for the Earth to orbit the Sun. The Babylonians divided this orbit, the circle, into 360 degrees, one for each day.
