"So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."
Zombies are all the rage today in movies and television series. On today's broadcast, however, we will be looking at a real-life zombie, produced not by Hollywood but by a fungus. The Ophiocordyceps...
"Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."
If you're a long-time listener, you know that Creation Moments does not discuss politics. That's why today's program focuses not on Ben Carson's political involvements but on Dr. Carson's courage as a scientist and world-renowned surgeon for sharing his politically incorrect views on Darwinian evolution.
"These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood…"
I'm sure you've heard evolutionists say that all real scientists believe in evolution. Well, let me tell you about a different theory that many if not most scientists believed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries – eugenics. This is the belief that some people groups – like blacks and Jews – are inferior and should be eliminated to improve the gene pool of the human race. In theory, it made sense to many. But when the innocent blood of millions was spilled by Adolf Hitler, suddenly it didn't seem like such a good idea.
"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
HRL Laboratories, owned by Boeing, startled the world years ago when they unveiled the lightest metal ever produced. More recently they're in the news again after Boeing released a video talking about what Popular Mechanics called one of the top 10 world-changing innovations of 2012.
"Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not."
Are you hungry to learn more about God's magnificent creation and teach your family what they need to know to defend the faith from the pseudoscience of evolution? Of course, the Creation Moments website is a great place to start.
"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."
While visiting Niagara Falls in 1840, Charles Lyell was told that the falls were receding at about three feet per year. This was based on what eyewitnesses who lived in that region had reported. But for reasons Lyell did not disclose, this lawyer-turned-geologist concluded that a "much more likely conjecture" – his words, not mine – is that the rate of erosion was only one foot per year. At this rate, it showed that Niagara Falls had been flowing for 35,000 years. Now, why would Lyell make such a conjecture?
"I said in mine heart, Go to now, I will prove thee with mirth, therefore enjoy pleasure: and, behold, this also is vanity."
While visiting Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry about 20 years ago, a Creation Moments staff member stood in a long line, waiting to take his first look at what we now know as "virtual reality". Today you can experience virtual reality – or VR for short – on your smartphone with a headset that can cost as little as ten dollars.
"And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."
In the introduction to his chapter on the origin of life for the book Evolution's Achilles' Heels, Ph.D. scientist Tas Walker points out that "geology has long been considered the solid foundation for evolution." He goes on to write that Darwin "built his theory of biological evolution squarely on then-current theories of geology, especially the work of his contemporary, Charles Lyell."
"Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD."
Since Creation Moments stands firmly on the side of creation as described in the Bible, we disagree at times with the Discovery Institute, the recognized leader of the Intelligent Design movement. But we do have to recognize and applaud them for putting together a list of several hundred scientists who do not agree with Darwinism.
"Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being."
I admit it. I enjoy reading comic strips from time to time. I especially love the single-panel "Far Side" cartoons by Gary Larson. He's one of the only cartoonists who has repeatedly focused on the foolishness of evolution and gotten away with it.
"Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made."
On our previous Creation Moments program, we told you about several esteemed scientists with advanced degrees who believe in biblical creation. Today I'm going to tell you what some of these scientists – and others – have said about a recent creation.
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;"
How often have we heard the statement – "No real scientist believes in creation" – as we talk to people about why creation is actually more credible than evolution. If you ever hear someone say something like that, you'll want to listen closely to what I am about to share with you today.
"And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;"
A long-time friend of Creation Moments, Richard Rothermel, recently shared his thoughts with us about the worldwide flood of Noah's time and why this historic event is so important for creationists to defend. Here is what he had to say.
"And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man."
True or false: Women have one more rib than men have. You might be surprised to know how many people believe that men have one less rib because God took a rib out of Adam and used it to make Eve. The fact is that men and women have 12 pairs of ribs in our chest.
However, modern science may now be able to explain why God chose to make Eve by using one of Adam's ribs.
"Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus."
If you own a car, you know that it has an engine, doors and, of course, wheels. There are some engineering solutions to transportation problems that are clearly better than others, and no matter who makes the car, designers eventually arrive at the same solutions because they work best.
"The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained."
Did you know that radiocarbon dating may offer supporting evidence for Noah's Flood? Many think that carbon dating provides evidence that the Earth is millions of years old, but this is not true. Radiocarbon dating can only reliably date things that are less than 3,000 years old.
"Wise people store up knowledge, but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction."
Modern evolutionists often give us the impression that evolution was accepted by the scientific community of Darwin's day. But the scientists of Darwin's day didn't hear his theory, slap themselves on the forehead, and say, "Of course!" In fact, some of the most influential scientists of the day were hostile to Darwinian evolution.
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
People who believe that God used evolution to bring about all living things claim that the Bible and evolution are telling the same story using different words. They say that everything in both stories happens in the same order. But is this really true?
"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called."
Though evolutionists would have you believe there's a war between science and faith, the very idea of a conflict is preposterous. Creation Moments board member Dr. Donald Clark points out that many of the early modern scientists were Christians – like Galileo, Copernicus and Newton. Because of their faith, they believed in a God of order, and this drove them to look for the order in the universe in the first place.
