Today's Creation Moment

Sep

Old MacDonald Has a Shell
Genesis 4:2b
"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...

Fossils

Fossil Inventory: Surprises for Some

in
Genesis 1:24
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so."

Everyone will remember those school textbook diagrams showing the ever-upward progression of living organisms, including man. We recall the horse series, found in textbooks and the museum displays showing the evolution of the horse – the first stage as a small mammal and, after several transitions, the modern horse. The claim that fossils in the rock layers show a progression from simple life in the lowest layers to the most complex life at the top accompanies these diagrams.

Dinosaur Bones Not Always Fully Fossilized

Genesis 1:24
"And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so."

Most listeners to these programs will at sometime have visited a museum to see the dinosaurs. Of course, the tangible remains consist of fossil skeletons and, if one is allowed to touch the bones, they are as hard as rock. Sometimes they are actually cement or plaster since they are copies. However, we are told that over the millions of years, the original bone had been replaced by minerals.

Living Fossils, Evolution's Oops

Psalm 104:30
"Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth."

Living fossils are creatures believed to be extinct and known only through the fossil record. The most famous living fossil is the Coelacanth. It is a fish, and textbooks claim it has been extinct for 70 million years according to the evolutionary timetable. Now we know that schools of them live in the Indian Ocean.

It's a Young World After All

in
John 17:15-17
"I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."

A few years ago, evolutionists discovered what they called the world's oldest mites. These little critters were encased in amber and were said to be 230 million years old. And yet, the lead researcher said, "They're dead ringers for [modern] gall mites."

How Accurate Is Radiometric Dating?

in
Psalm 119:160-161
"Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word."

Evolutionists are good at giving the appearance they know what they are talking about when they say that such and such fossil is 150 million years old or 320 million years old or whatever.

One of Evolution's Best-Kept Secrets

in
Psalm 17:12-13
"Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:"

Though the title of today's program is "One of evolution's best-kept secrets," Creation Moments could bring you hundreds of broadcasts with the same title. While evolutionists are filling science textbooks, Hollywood films, science magazines and natural history museums with their favorite evidences of evolution, they routinely fail to mention the evidences that call evolution into question.

Evolutionary Hype!

Job 17:5
"He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail."

In a surprisingly candid article at the pro-evolution website ScienceDaily, one scientist admits that most fossil finds include a generous amount of hype.

Darwin and His Followers Draw the Wrong Conclusions

in
2 Peter 3:6
"Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished..."

Charles Darwin once wrote of the fossil record, "No organism wholly soft can be preserved." That's because evolutionary orthodoxy says that fossils are buried and formed by slow, natural processes. In reality, there are many fossils of soft-bodied animals like jellyfish and squid. That is evidence, of course, of rapid, catastrophic burial at the time of the flood. Darwin rejected the flood and therefore got the science wrong.

Carbon-14 Being Found in Dinosaur Fossils!

in
Psalm 25:5
"Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day."

Evolutionists were so sure that dinosaur fossils are too old to contain any carbon-14, they never even bothered to check. Or perhaps they were afraid of what they would find. In any case, creationist scientists are now boldly going where evolutionists have feared to tread.

Roman Artifacts Discovered in Brazil

in
Acts 20:13a
"And we went before to ship, and sailed unto Assos, there intending to take in Paul:"

Both Spain and Portugal claim to have discovered Brazil in the 16th century. However, mounting evidence suggests that neither country can claim discovery of Brazil.

Fossilized Fence Roadblocks Evolutionary Dating

in
Luke 19:40
"And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."

Here at Creation Moments we have mentioned a few examples of fossils that, without argument, were formed recently. We have been trying to show that when you see a fossil or hear the word, you should not automatically think millions of years. In an attempt to maintain the illusion that fossils automatically must be millions of years old, evolutionists dismiss the examples of young fossils as freaks of nature. However, there are many examples of recent fossils.

Fossil Jaw Not Evidence for Evolution

in
2 Thessalonians 2:11
"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:"

Evolutionists are rejoicing over a fossil jaw found in the Ledi-Geraru research area of Ethiopia. They say it pushes back evidence for early humans to 2.8 million years ago and predates all previously known fossils of mankind's lineage by about 400,000 years. The fossil which has caused such excitement consists only of the left side of a lower jaw and five teeth.

An Open-and-Shut Case for Creation

in
Genesis 6:17
"And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die."

Evolutionists hate the very idea of the worldwide flood because they know that such a catastrophe would cause the Earth to appear to be much older than it truly is. And without those long ages of time, evolution becomes an impossibility.

Evolution in Reverse

in
Romans 3:20
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin."

Some time ago, we told you about the nineteenth-century paleontologist Louis Dollo, who proposed a law that has become a cornerstone of evolutionary belief. Dollo's law says that  a structure or organ lost during the course of evolution would not reappear in that organism. In other words, evolution never shifts into reverse.

Digging Up the Dirt on Fraudulent Fossils

in
1 Samuel 12:24
"Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you."

How far will scientists and museums go to get people to believe in the theory of evolution? As scientist Carl Werner reveals in his book and on his webpage Evolution: The Grand Experiment, they will readily fabricate fake fossils and pass them off as real.

A Tinker Toy Fossil Embarrasses Scientists

in
Proverbs 12:20
"Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy."

In October of 1999 scientists announced the discovery of a new fossil at the National Geographic Society in Washington. Scientists from the Dinosaur Museum in Blanding, Utah, and the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing, China, announced the discovery of a so called "missing link." The feathered fossil was clearly a bird, but it had the tail of a small dinosaur. They named it Archaeoraptor.

Are Rocks Like Vaults or Sponges?

in
1 Corinthians 2:7
"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:"

One of the common methods of finding the age of rocks, and ultimately the age of the Earth, measures the decay of radioactive uranium into lead – the more lead, the older the rock. The method, however, makes some very big assumptions. First, scientists assume there was no lead in the rock when it first formed, but this is unprovable. Then, they assume that rocks are like locked vaults and that no uranium, lead, or the in between decay elements can ever enter or leave the rock.

The Rocks Bear Witness

in
Luke 19:40
"And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."

We have always been told that it takes millions of years for muddy deposits to turn into rock. Those who believe in creation have always disagreed. It seems pretty clear to us that much of the sedimentary rock we see today was deposited during the Great Flood at the time of Noah, which was not millions of years ago. Creationists generally place the Flood at about 4,600 years ago. Until recently, evolutionists dismissed this date as impossible: sedimentary rocks simply could not form that fast. Well, now it seems that they spoke too soon.

Earthquake Caused by Noah's Flood?

in
Genesis 7:11
"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."

Miles deep within the Earth, heat and pressure force water out of certain minerals, changing or metamorphosing the rock. All the textbooks say that it takes millions of years for such metamorphic rock to form. New research shows pretty convincingly that all the textbooks are wrong.
    

Canada's Fossil Forest

in
Ecclesiastes 11:3
"If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be."

Axel Heiberg Island in Northern Canada is the closest point of land to the North Pole. The landscape is completely barren today, but long ago a dense forest of large meta-sequoia trees grew there. At that time, the climate must have been like Florida today. The stumps of these "fossil trees" have not mineralized and are still wood – that is, cellulose. They are claimed to be 45 million years old.
