"And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground."
Until recently, it was thought that, excluding mankind, only a few insects, beetles, ants and termites actually farmed crops for their food supply. Then an amazing snail was found.
The snail lives on...
"Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever."
Science textbooks, articles and documentaries about evolution are saturated with what creationist Mike Riddle calls "fuzzy words." These are words that evolutionists typically use when they have no observable evidence to support their claims.
"God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day."
Here at Creation Moments, we frequently get upset with the National Geographic Society for misleading their readers and viewers with stories supporting evolution. But when a scientist at the Smithsonian Institution writes a scorching letter to them to express his outrage, this is something that doesn't happen every day!
"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
On today's program, we bring you the end of the world. Well, not exactly. I'm going to present an alphabetical list of global catastrophes supposedly being caused by global warming. Never mind the fact that there has been absolutely no global warming for over 18 years.
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
Charles Darwin introduced his theory of evolution in 1859 in the book Origin of Species. Many evolutionists, however, would like people to forget that the full title is On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.
"Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent."
In a typical anti-creationist op-ed piece for Scientific American, columnist John Horgan begins by explaining why he titled his column: "Pssst! Don't tell the creationists, but scientists don't have a clue how life began."
"For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh."
Want to ruffle the feathers of an evolutionist? Just remind him that mutations are harmful. Yes, there are many mutations that are neutral, but beneficial mutations are only a figment of the evolutionist's imagination. The truth is that mutations typically bring about deformities and death. Such is the case with the tiny mutation that changed a harmless organism found in the intestines of humans and animals into a bacteria that resulted in the bubonic plague.
"And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah."
Some of you will remember the book Chariots of the Gods that was such a hit in the 1980s. Though its author wasn't the first or the last to write about "ancient astronauts", Erich Von Däniken popularized the notion that aliens from other worlds had come to our planet eons ago. These alien beings supposedly left traces of their visits all over the world – from the pyramids of Egypt to the Nazca lines in southern Peru.
"We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error."
Many people – especially those who believe in creation – avoid watching science shows on TV because these programs are usually saturated with unscientific claims favoring evolution. However, even Darwinian soapboxes like Nova can be worth watching, just as long as you do so with a discerning eye.
"And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity."
It is common for evolutionists to dismiss a lot of great work by creationists, saying that their papers do not appear in their own peer-reviewed journals. But now, editors of the two most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals have gone on record as saying that the peer-review process doesn't mean much anymore.
"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;"
A scientific paper called "DDT: A Case Study in Scientific Fraud" was published a few years ago in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. Though the author deals with scientific fraud related to the banning of DDT, he also gives insights into how some scientists are committing fraud to support other matters, like global warming and evolution.
"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."
Some people think that they can believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and at the same time believe God created through evolution. These people are called theistic evolutionists or progressive creationists. What kind of nature would a god have who creates through the death that is essential to evolution?
"For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:"
If I were come out and say that "neo-Darwinism is effectively dead despite its persistence as textbook orthodoxy", you can be sure that evolutionists would be all over me. If I went on to say that our knowledge of genetics is now sufficient to reject evolution's slow, gradual selection of small mutational changes, you can bet evolutionists would hurl insults at me, using words I would not be permitted to repeat on this radio station.
"Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity."
When a scientist dares to doubt Darwin in this day and age, the science establishment goes into attack mode. It will stop at nothing to silence anyone who dares to doubt their beloved Darwin. If you think I'm exaggerating, you need to read Dr. Jerry Bergman's thought-provoking and disturbing book, Slaughter of the Dissidents.
"That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;"
The idea of multiverses – that our universe is one of many – has long been used in science fiction stories. But now, atheists and evolutionists are depending on it to be true! They're saying this to dispose of the obvious fact that we live in a finely tuned universe that bears the stamp of our Creator's design. We are lucky to inhabit just the right universe, they say.
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
When a well-respected scientist says anything that is critical of Darwinism, two things are bound to happen. First, evolutionists will put pressure on the scientist to retract his comments. The second thing is that creationists will quote the scientist to show that even some scientists understand the weaknesses of evolution. This is what we are doing on today's broadcast.
"Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."
I could easily fill up today's entire Creation Moments broadcast by listing the scientific accomplishments and affiliations of Paul Davies. His research interests span the fields of cosmology, quantum field theory and astrobiology.
"Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped."
If an infinite number of monkeys sat down at an infinite number of typewriters, eventually one of these monkeys would type Shakespeare's play Hamlet. At least that's what French mathematician Émile Borel proposed in his infinite monkey theorem – an idea that scientists use to assert that given enough time, even evolution can happen.
