A New Volcano Inside the Old
Psalm 83:14
“As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;”
Many people know about the devastating and explosive eruption of Mount St Helens in 1980. Not so many people know that the volcano has erupted since then, but in less spectacular fashion. ...

Fossils

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.
