God's Design

God Helps Design a Better Submarine

Psalm 69:34
"Let the heaven and earth praise Him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein."

Engineers who design vehicles to move through fluids face a quandary. A torpedo-shaped vehicle can move quickly and efficiently through a fluid like water, but it is difficult to maneuver precisely or get to hover. A boxier vehicle can be designed to hover and move with more precision but lacks speed and efficiency.

How Old Is Human DNA?

Genesis 11:8
"So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city."

Mitochondria generate energy inside each of your cells. They have their own DNA, which is passed directly from mother to child. This fact and the known rate at which mitochondrial DNA mutates has led to some conclusions which would be expected by those who accept the biblical history of mankind.

How Deep Is the Moon’s Dust?

Genesis 1:16
“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.”

Did you know that the actual dust on the surface of the moon is thousands of times less than expected by those who think the Earth is billions of years old?

How Old Does the Bible Say the Earth Is?

Genesis 5:3-5
“And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.”

We have all heard or read about a scientist from some university declaring that a certain rock or fossil is millions of years old. But what do these pronouncements do to the Bible’s history that begins with creation? Has modern science proven that the Bible’s history is inaccurate?

Amazing Water

Job 37:10
“By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.”

According to evolutionary theory, all matter and energy were the result of a huge explosion called the “Big Bang.” The laws that matter and energy must follow are also the result of that same great explosion. As a further result of these beliefs, evolutionists are convinced that things behave the way they do quite accidentally.

One Designer

Romans 1:20
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

If you give a design problem to ten different engineers to solve, chances are you will not get ten different solutions. In fact, you are likely to end up with ten solutions that look very much alike.

Creation and the Gospel

John 1:3
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

What does the Bible’s teaching on creation have to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Are these just two separate and unrelated biblical teachings? Christians often ask us, “Shouldn’t we just worry about the basics? Why worry about a teaching like creation?” Indeed, we should be concerned with basics.

We See by Faith

Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

As Christians, we believe by faith. But did you know that even evolutionary scientists believe by their own kind of faith? Scientists early in the previous century, like scientists today, had no evidence that humans had evolved from ape like creatures.

There Is No Simple Life

Job 37:8
“Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.”

We often hear people speak of “simple life forms” or the “simple cell.” Is there really such a thing as “simple life”? Although we often speak of the “simple cell,” there really is no such thing as a simple form of life. Even the single celled creature is a highly complex organism.

The Days in Genesis

Genesis 1:5
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”

Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day it is. The men know what day and what time it is even without seeing daylight because the sun’s movement – like a clock – only measures time; it doesn’t create it.

Do the Bible and Science Mix?

John 3:12
“If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things.”

Scientific principles learned in the Bible have led to countless scientific discoveries and saved millions of lives. It’s true. Without the Bible, we would never have the blessings of modern science.

The Master Artist

Genesis 2:9
“And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food…”

God not only is powerful and creative as Master Designer, but He is more. He is the supreme artist.

James Clerk Maxwell: Creation Scientist

1 Corinthians 2:5
“That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

James Clerk Maxwell was a Scottish physicist and professor at King’s College, London, and then at Cambridge University. Albert Einstein said that Maxwell had made a greater contribution to physics than anyone except Isaac Newton. Maxwell developed complex theoretical and mathematical explanations for all James Clerk Maxwellthe forces in the universe except gravity and nuclear forces.

Skeptics Admit: Science Can’t Deny Soul

John 8:56
“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.”

Accepting that God created man, did He create a non-material part within him we call the soul as well as the familiar material body?  Of course, the Bible has a lot to say about man’s soul and that following a person’s death, the soul of the faithful will be with God in heaven. However, there are others who regard the idea of a soul as nothing more than a superstition.

Leading Evolutionist Becomes a Creationist!

1 Kings 18:21
“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long shalt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”

In 1969 Dr. Dean Kenyon, then professor of biology at San Francisco State University, published a book that left him recognized as one of the leading evolutionary scientists. His book, Biological Predestination, tried to explain how simple living things could, over millions of years, become more complex, and finally evolve into human beings.

Science Tries to See

Psalm 139:14
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Scientists have tried to tackle the job of creating a machine that is able to see as well as the human eye. In the process, they are gaining a new appreciation for the wonderful gift of sight.

Evolutionist Says: Darwinism is in Trouble!

Psalm 104:30-31
“Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created; and thou renewest the face of the earth. The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in His works.”

Several years ago, Dr. Francis Hitching gave us his book The Neck of the Giraffe and in this he writes that Darwinism is in a lot of trouble. He laments, and I’m using his own words, that evolution “has not, contrary to general belief, and despite very great efforts, been proven.”

Origins: Your Answer Matters!

Hebrews 12:1
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us…”

What makes something right or wrong? Are things that are sometimes wrong always wrong? Most writers and commentators, even most preachers today, have problems with the question of right and wrong. That seems amazing since only a generation or two ago few people had any problems at all with the issue of Illustration of the ventromedial prefrontal cortexright and wrong.

Nobel Prize Winner Says Man Is Divine Creation

Romans 1:20
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”

When he was 17, medical student John Eccles began asking questions about the nature of man, what is thought, and what is the meaning of life? Fifty years later, after he had become one of the world’s greatest experts on the human brain, had become Sir John Eccles and had received the Nobel Prize, he felt free enough to speak out about his studies.

A Solid Foundation in Creation

John 1:3
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

What does the Bible’s teaching on creation have to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ? Well, let’s see what happens to Christ’s work of salvation if creation is untrue and God actually used evolution. Death in the animal kingdom must have come into the world long before the first man and before sin.
