Atoning Pitch
Genesis 6:14
"Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch."
Wood will get waterlogged, if it is left in water for too long. And yet wood has often been used throughout history to build boats and ships. For example, the city of Pensacola, Florida, was, in many...

Fossils

She Sells Sea Shells

in
Genesis 1:25
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

British comedian Milton Jones tells this one-liner:

It’s difficult to say what my wife does for a living. She sells sea shells on the sea shore.

However, the famous tongue-twister actually refers to a young woman who never married.

Crystal Palace Dinosaurs

in
Proverbs 15:33
The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

If you visit London, England, there are a lot of interesting sights to see. You will probably want to take photos of the Horse-guard's Parade, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, and, of course, Buckingham Palace, among many, many other sights. But it might not occur to you to visit the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs.

Whales on Land

in
Genesis 1:21
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was goo

A small boy was asked in class “What family does the whale belong to?” Nervously, he replied”I don’t know sir. No family on our street has one!”

What the teacher was getting at was the evolutionary idea that whales have evolved from land mammals. In London’s Natural History Museum, one display cabinet shows a mesonychid, thought to be a land dwelling ancestor, on the left, a fossil of a modern-type dolphin on the right, and, in the middle there is a supposed intermediate form—an ambulocetus.

Fossil Tumors Are Problems for Theistic Evolution

in
Genesis 1:25
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

There are many Christians, who choose to believe that God created the world as it is today by guiding a natural process of evolution. Such Christians accept all the teaching of evolutionary biologists, but part company where such evolutionists deny the existence of God. I have often been told “God could have produced this world by evolution, if He wanted to.” What God could have done, however, is not the most important issue. The most important issue is what God Himself said about how He created things.

Dinosaur Tail Feather in Amber?

in
Matthew 6:26
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Evolutionary scientists have recently claimed strong evidence to support the evolution of birds from dinosaurs. Palaeontologist Lida Xing was visiting a market in Myanmar, when he saw a piece of amber, containing a tiny feather, along with the more usual insects.

Words of Bias

in
Genesis 1:21a
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind.

We are used to evolutionists getting certain aspects of science wrong. But sometimes we are not aware of how words and phrases of bias can be slipped through unnoticed.

An Antarctic Forest

in
Romans 8:38-39
"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

As we learn more about the history of our planet, it's becoming increasingly obvious that the Earth has had many faces over its history. Remains of tropical forests have been found within 400 miles of the North Pole. Dinosaurs once lived in the tropical lushness of Alaska. At one time, you could even walk to Australia from Asia.

"Santa Claws" and a Tiny Dragon

in
Psalm 18:30
"As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him."

The fossil record shows us examples of God's great creativity in designing living things. It also shows that life appeared suddenly on Earth, in finished form. The fossil record shows us that Earth originally had a much greater variety of life. Finally, the fossil record doesn't show any evidence of creatures evolving from one type into another.

Does the Fossil Record Support Evolution?

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."

Ask evolutionists what they consider to be the single most important evidence for Darwinism, and you'll hear them give many different answers. But the one answer we hear most often is: "the fossil record."

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.
