Careless Words
2 Timothy 1:13
“Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.”
The apostle Paul told Timothy that he should “hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me”. Words are very important, and it is very easy to miscommunicate by using the wrong...

Evolution's Mistakes

Can We Test Evolution?

Psalms 119:89-9
"Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth."

There are those that claim that Evolution is a scientific theory. Scientific theories can be subject to the scientific method. If the same test or experiment is carried out under the same Diagram of Scientific Method Stepsconditions, on different days or locations, the results should still be the same.

Method in Our Science

1 Thessalonians 5:21
"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."

Science has an elevated position in Western society. There are those who would try to put Christians down, by saying “You have faith, but I have science”. Science, in the abstract, is therefore Diagram of Scientific Method Stepsassumed to be the ultimate truth, and the universal standard, against which everything must be tested.

Is This Any Way to Do Business?

Mark 8:36
"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

Evolutionary scientists tell us that mutations were central to the production of the great variety of creatures on earth today from the first living cell. At the same time, biologists admit that 99 A mutation in garden moss rose to produce flowers of different colors.percent of all mutations are harmful.

Species Confusion May Kill Ape-man

Genesis 1:26
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepth upon the earth."

A debate about the definition of "species" may remove Homo erectus from the human evolutionary tree.

A Lingering Myth of Evolution

Romans 1:21-22
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools . . .”

Ernst Haeckel is famous for having produced diagrams of embryos, to show their similarity. His idea was that “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny”. In other words, the developmental stages, through which an embryo goes (ontogeny), are a sort of recapitulation of the evolution of that organism (phylogeny). I clearly remember being taught this, as an evidence of evolution, when I was in elementary school.

Mind the Gap

Genesis 1:1-2
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

“Mind the gap” is the refrain constantly heard on the London Underground, warning people to be careful not to step into the gap between the platform and the train. But “mind the gap” would also be a good refrain for students of the Bible!

Dark Matter: Does It Matter?

Psalms 19:1
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

In the Big Bang scenario, the supposed expansion of the universe, from the original singularity, can be calculated, based on the strength of the gravitational fields of the matter in the universe. But there is a problem with the calculation. The universe has nowhere near enough matter to cause a strong-enough gravitational field to explain how we view the universe today.

God vs. Big Bang

Colossians 1:16
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they bethrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Some Christian apologists believe that all Christians should accept the Big Bang theory. They say that the Big Bang theory has been proved, and that at least it tells us that the universe had a definite beginning. They use this as part of a logical syllogism, which they claim proves God. It runs as follows:

God vs. Big BangEverything that has a beginning has a cause.

The universe had a beginning.

When the Ice Came

Job 38:29-30
Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

Was there a time, when large parts of the Earth’s surface were so cold, that they were covered with ice sheets? Many U-shaped valleys throughout northern Europe and North America show markings somewhat similar to the impressions left today by moving glaciers – “rivers” of ice.

A Delay in Origins

Proverbs 9:10a
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

Why did Charles Darwin take so long to publish his Origin of Species? His Beagle journal was published in 1839, but Origins was published 20 years later, in 1859. And why was Darwin in such a hurry in 1858 to get his book finished and published? A book by Roy Davies, entitled The Darwin Conspiracy, suggests that Darwin was guilty of plagiarism.

Just More Stories

2 Timothy 4:3-4
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables."

Parables are a good way to teach. Jesus often used parables to teach a lesson. Parables can even be a good way to teach science. However, parables cannot be used to establish scientific fact.

The Power of Faith

2 Timothy 3:13
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."

The history of science, supposedly supporting evolution, shows the power of expecting to find something, whether it exists or not.

Caution: Fuzzy Words Ahead!

Psalm 119:160
"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.

Has Evolution Produced Anything of Practical Value?

Job 38:4
"Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding."

Many of our listeners are familiar with the name of Dr. Don Batten. This plant scientist and creationist is the author of countless books and articles as well as booklets on science topics that Creation Moments has distributed over the years. Recently we came across an interview where Dr. Batten was asked to respond to the claim being made by evolutionists that science would be impossible without evolution.

Smithsonian Scientist Scolds National Geographic

Psalm 7:11
"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!

Climate Change Catastrophe!

2 Peter 3:10
"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.

Darwin's Headhunters

Genesis 1:27
"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.

Scientists Still Don't Have a Clue How Life Began

John 6:29
"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."

Bubonic Plague, a Problem for Evolutionists

Psalm 38:7
"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.

Ancient Astronauts?

Genesis 4:21-22
"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.
