The Key to Real Leadership
Proverbs 12:24
"The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute."
Wasp colonies in temperate zones usually wait until the end of summer to raise male young. That's because male wasps are typically useless consumers of food. They don't do anything worthwhile in the...

Creation

The Origin of Racism

Acts 17:26a
"And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth…"

The descendants of Ham, who were cursed, were the Canaanites. Yet when Rahab, a Canaanite, came to faith in the true God, she not only was welcomed to marry a believer, but God included her in the Photo of a segregated neighborhood.line leading to Christ. The idea of different races, as distinct from different religions, was not much of an issue until 1859 when Charles Darwin published his famous book, On the Origin of Species.

Where Does True Knowledge Come From?

1 Corinthians 1:25
"Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men."

Americans lead the industrialized world in belief in creationism and a literal Bible. A recent study by a University of Cincinnati researcher, compares American's belief in a recent creation and the truth of the Bible with beliefs in other countries. The study A Biblefound that 45 percent of Americans believe that God created the world less than 10,000 years ago. Another 40 percent try to mix God and evolution.

Before the Beginning

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created…

The first event to happen was Creation. And Creation was a direct act of God.

How Ancient Is the Earth?

Psalms 68:32-33
Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah: To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.

A few months after I was saved, I came across people who did not believe in the theory of evolution. I appreciated their position, and was soon convinced, because I wanted to believe that the whole Bible was true. Nevertheless, not all of these creationists believed that the Creation Week comprised of six literal days. Some pointed to verses in the Bible describing God as the “Ancient of Days”, or referring to “ancient heavens”, as biblical evidence that the world had not necessarily been created to the so-called literal timescale.

How Young Is the Earth?

Psalm 119:42
So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.

You have probably heard of Young Earth Creationists and Old Earth Creationists. Wikipedia defines Young Earth Creationism as a belief that the world was made by “direct acts of God less than 10,000 years ago”. Where does the figure of 10,000 years come from? There are a number of scientific calculations and principles that suggest that the world could be no older than 10,000 years – for example, the aging and gradual destruction of comets. Yet other people give different ages. Certain creationists have suggested ages of 30,000, or even a million years.

Evolutionists Are So Inconsistent

James 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

We do not believe that God created the Universe because of evidence. We believe it, because that is what God said in His Word. Having presupposed the obvious truth of God’s Word, we notice that any evidence observed and collected is consistent with what we know of the truth of God’s Word.

When Is a Day a Day?

Exodus 20:11a
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day:

When is a day a day? And when is a day not a day? Are the days really 24 hours long? Let’s look at that well-known Bible passage that tells you about the first day, second day and so on. I am referring to Numbers 7.

Nuclear Physicist Blasts Evolution

Psalm 55:5
"Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me."

"The denial of the Genesis account is not a matter to be taken lightly by Christians," warns nuclear physicist Brandon van der Ventel. "If the biblical record is not true, then we are left with naturalism and atheism, of which the consequences are truly horrific."

Are We Living in a Simulation?

2 Timothy 2:23
"But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes."

If you had nothing better to do with your time, you might enjoy thinking about such things as: "How do I know that the whole world isn't just a figment of someone's imagination?" Or, "How do I know that the whole universe didn't suddenly pop into existence 20 minutes ago?"

Evolution Being Taught at Seminaries

Matthew 7:15
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

Several years ago, a Creation Moments staff member was discussing biblical creation with a well-known Bible teacher and Old Testament scholar. When this professor – whose name I will not disclose – began writing articles promoting theistic evolution for the BioLogos Foundation, he was asked to leave his teaching position at a conservative Christian seminary.

The Real Goal of Evolution

Romans 1:20
"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:"

In their book A Closer Look at the Evidence, public school science teachers Richard and Tina Kleiss write that our conscience is an undeniable evidence of God's existence. Another evidence is the intricate design of nature. After all, the Bible tells us in the book of Romans that He makes Himself evident to everyone so that no one can claim that He does not exist.

Theory, Hypothesis … Or Something Else?

2 Peter 1:16
"For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty."

Does the theory of evolution pass the test of being a legitimate theory? Not according to Ph.D. geologist and marine scientist Roger Gallop. In his book Evolution: The Greatest Deception in Modern History, Gallop points out that a theory is "an explanation of a set of related observations based on hypotheses and verified by independent researchers." But, he adds, "evolution – that is, genuine gain in genetic information or net increase in complexity – has never been observed in fossils or living populations."

Evolution – A Matter of Faith

John 1:3-4
"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

Does the name Harold Clayton Urey ring a bell? Urey was an American physical chemist who did pioneering work on isotopes, earning him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for discovering deuterium. He also played a significant role in the development of the atom bomb. Still no bell? Well, perhaps you'll recognize his name if I mention the Miller-Urey experiment, conducted in 1952.

The Implausibility of Evolution

Deuteronomy 31:6
"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.

Innocent Blood

Proverbs 6:16-17
"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.

Metal That's Light as a Feather

Matthew 11:29-30
"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.

Creation Adventures Near You

Proverbs 8:32-33
"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.

Niagara Falls – Evidence for a Young Earth

John 4:14
"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?

Virtual Reality – Blessing or Curse?

Ecclesiastes 2:1
"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.

The Evolution Illusion

1 Corinthians 1:20
"Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?"

Evolutionary biologists like to give people the impression that they are unbiased individuals who follow the evidence wherever it leads. If only this were true!
