Were Dinosaurs Warm Blooded?
Psalm 147:2-3
"The LORD builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel. He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds."
Dinosaur fossil hunters and paleontologists have long debated whether dinosaurs were warm-blooded or cold-blooded. With reptile characteristics, it was expected that dinosaurs would be cold-blooded....

Fossils

Wood Contradicts Rock

in
Psalm 118:8
"It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man."

Radioactive carbon, carbon-14, accumulates in all living things when alive. Once they die, half of any given amount of carbon-14 in a once-living thing decays to non-radioactive nitrogen in 5,730 years. Thus, by measuring the amount of carbon-14 left in a once-living thing, scientists can get a rough idea of when it died. It can be used to date things that are only thousands of years old, not millions.

Cave Mysteries

in
2 Samuel 22:31
“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.”

Have you ever been in a cave? If you have, perhaps someone has told you that the rock formations hanging from the ceiling – called stalactites – are thousands or even tens of thousands of years old. Scientists tell us that stalactites take 100 years, on the average, to grow one inch. But just how accurate is this figure?

Evolutionists Love “Lucy”

in
Genesis 2:7
“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

“Lucy” is said by its discoverer, Dr. Donald Johanson, to be the best and latest proof that humans evolved from some ape like creature. But Lucy is really a monument to human imagination!

New Technique Supports Creation

in
Psalm 119:160
“Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”

Some time ago, a news article described how scientists had studied the genetic material of a magnolia leaf that supposedly died 20 million years ago.

The Fossilized Hats

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.”

How long does it take to make a fossil? Most people think that it takes a long time, and that’s partly because we have been repeatedly told that fossils are millions of years old.

The Secrets of Hot Mineral Water

in
Genesis 7:11b
“... the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.”

How long does it take for large mineral formations to form? While evolutionists say millions of years, creationists assume that most of the rock formations we see formed relatively quickly as the waters of the Genesis flood receded.

Trying to Spin an Evolutionary History Out of Spider Silk

Job 8:13-14
“So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite’s hope shall perish: Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider’s web.”

Scientists recently examined a well-preserved spider web encased in amber. It is the oldest example of a spider web in existence and was declared to be 110 million years old.

Warming to an Old Climate

in
Genesis 2:6
“But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.”

It was the largest bird that ever lived. It stood 10-12 feet tall and could easily outrun a horse. Being a meat-eater, this fossil bird, which has been nicknamed “terror bird,” possibly did chase horses and bring them down with its sharp talons. The only thing that limited this creature’s terrible abilities was its inability to fly.

Fast Bees or Fast Talking?

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.”

According to the Bible, God created the land-living insects, and that would include the bees, on day six of creation. This was just three days after He created the flowering plants. According to evolution, bees evolved from a simpler insect after the pollen-bearing plants had developed. The specialized bee and its complex social structure was thought to have taken a long time to evolve.

Does the Bible Mention Fossils?

in
Job 26:5
“Dead [things] are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.”

Does the Bible mention fossils? Before you answer too quickly, you need to know that fossils are not a modern discovery.

A Mammoth Mystery

in
2 Peter 1:20-21
"Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost."

One of the most important differences between man's word and God's Word is that man's word can sometimes be true, while God's Word is always true.

Another All-Wet Theory of Evolution

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."

There is a universe of difference between saying that man was created by God, in the image of God, and saying that man is nothing more than a hairless ape. And the fact that man is not covered with hair like the ape has led to a weird, new twist in the theory of evolution.

Sherlock Holmes' Greatest Mystery?

James 3:16
"For where envying and strife [is], there [is] confusion and every evil work."

In 1912 Charles Dawson announced the discovery of Piltdown man to the world. Piltdown man was a half-human, half ape-like creature which was offered as proof that man was nothing more than a glorified ape. Today, everyone knows that Piltdown man was a fraud.

Older Farmers

Genesis 2:15
"And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it."

Evolutionary theory says that man only developed farming recently in his history. Besides going against common sense, this evolutionary idea is beginning to cause problems with the greatly inflated evolutionary dating system.

Oldest Bug Is Modern

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.”

Did you know that the phrase “according to its kind” appears 10 times in the first chapter of Genesis? Not only is the fact that plants and animals reproduce according to their kind an important principle in the Bible, it is central to modern agriculture and husbandry. What’s more, there is no evidence in the fossil record that any creature ever existed that was in the process of changing from one kind into another.

The Deception of Evolutionary Dating

in
II Corinthians 11:3
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."

We have all heard evolutionists claim certain rocks and fossils to be millions of years old. They claim to arrive at these long ages using index fossils. Index fossils are creatures that supposedly lived during specific ages. We are told that these ages are independently verified using radiometric dating methods. But is all of this as neat and certain as evolutionists say it is?

Don't Make a Monkey Out of Me!

in
Romans 1:22-23
"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."

Scientists who believe in evolution have a faith just as much as any Bible-believing Christian. However, it is a very different faith than Christianity. This fact was illustrated when some secular scientists declared the bones labeled "Piltdown man" an ape-like human ancestor. Only after a couple of generations did they bother to actually study the bones and discover them to be an obvious hoax. They did the same with "Nebraska man," which turned out to be a pig.

A Prehistoric Spark Plug?

in
I Corinthians 10:4b
"For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ."

Here on our Creation Moments program we frequently report on fossil finds that show that rocks don't take millions of years to form. We feature many of these, rather than just one example, in the hope that it will become common knowledge that it is not unusual for rocks to form rapidly.
