Those Noisy Ants
Ephesians 4:29
"Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers."
Scientists have long known that some ants communicate with one another using vibrations. They also know that these ants pick up vibrations through ears that are located in their knees. Ants in four...

God's Design

Do You Know How Complex a Single Cell Is?

Psalm 96:3
"Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples."

It wasn't until 1839 that cell theory was first described by Theodor Schwann in basically its modern form. By 1858, researcher Rudolf Virchow had learned enough about the cell to conclude that every cell must come from a preexisting cell. But Charles Darwin wasn't paying attention. The very next year he published a book, On the Origin of Species, which theorized that the first cell was formed from non living matter.

Patterns of Design

2 Timothy 1:13
"Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus."

If you own a car, you know that it has an engine, doors and, of course, wheels. There are some engineering solutions to transportation problems that are clearly better than others, and no matter who makes the car, designers eventually arrive at the same solutions because they work best.

Does the Bible Provide Unnecessary, Impossible Details?

Genesis 35:17
"Now it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, 'Do not fear; you will have this son also.'"

Sometimes the Bible seems to offer unnecessary or even impossible details as it recounts a historical event. Take, for example, the Genesis account of Rachel's death while giving birth to Benjamin.

New Problems for Origin of Life Theories

Psalm 36:9
"For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light."

The usual theories for the origin of life have the first genetic material assembling itself by chance in a hot setting. Some have suggested that this may have happened in an undersea thermal vent or the side of a volcano. Trying to explain the origin of life without God suffers from many scientific problems. New research has now uncovered yet another problem.

Was Jesus Sending Us Today a Special Message?

Mark 8:24
"And he looked up and said, 'I see men like trees, walking.'"

When Jesus healed people, they were usually immediately and completely healed. In several instances, He wasn't even in the presence of the person He healed. Then we come to a curious instance of a healing in the Gospel of Mark. Mark 8:22-25 tells us that Jesus was asked to heal a blind man in Bethsaida. After spitting on His hands and touching the man's eyes, He asked the blind man if he could see anything. The man announced that people looked like trees. After Jesus touched his eyes again, the man could see clearly.

Healing Power of Prayer Undeniable

Matthew 6:33
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

From time to time we hear about scientific studies showing that Christians live longer and healthier lives than unbelievers. We also hear of studies proving that prayer really does work. One recent report, consisting of 1,500 different medical studies, showed that "people who are more religious and pray more have better mental and physical health."

"Evolution Is Effectively Dead"

2 Peter 3:5
"For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:"

If I were come out and say that "neo-Darwinism is effectively dead despite its persistence as textbook orthodoxy", you can be sure that evolutionists would be all over me. If I went on to say that our knowledge of genetics is now sufficient to reject evolution's slow, gradual selection of small mutational changes, you can bet evolutionists would hurl insults at me, using words I would not be permitted to repeat on this radio station.

Life Thrives Under Antarctica's Ice

Isaiah 44:24b
"I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;"

Number eleven in Science News magazine's top 25 top stories of the year 2014 was the discovery of thousands of microbe varieties lurking in the rivers and lakes beneath Antarctica's massive ice sheet.

Michael Crichton on Consensus Science

2 Corinthians 10:12
"For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise."

Darwinists and climate-change alarmists are frequently heard to say that their respective topics are  a matter of "settled science." They use this term to silence critics. But is this how science is supposed to work? The late Dr. Michael Crichton, best known as the author of Jurassic Park, didn't think so.

Designed to Stand

Ephesians 6:14
"Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;"

Try as they might, no evolutionist can successfully explain how a four-legged ape-like creature evolved into a two-legged creature like man.

Evolutionists Still Defend Abiogenesis

John 1:3-4
"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

Though Louis Pasteur proved that life comes only from life, the myth that life can come from non-life – or abiogenesis – is still defended by evolutionists today. They now claim that while Pasteur disproved spontaneous generation, he did not prove that life comes only from life.

Smallest Life Form Discovered

Mark 8:7-8
"And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets."

A bacterium has recently been photographed that is so tiny, researchers have debated about whether it could even exist. The bacterium has a volume of only .009 cubic microns. To put that into perspective, a micron is one millionth of a meter. This means that more than 150,000 of them could fit on the tip of a single human hair.

In the Blink of an Eye

Proverbs 20:12
"The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them."

Did you know that the intermittent windshield wiper on your car was discovered in the blink of an eye? According to the book Inspired Evidence: Only One Reality, here's the story of how it came about.    

Don't Have a Cow, Man!

Jeremiah 13:23
"Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil."

Many thousands of people have visited the Creation Moments website after seeing a photo we posted at the popular WorldNetDaily website. The photo shows a cow with spots on its hide that look exactly like a map of the world. We asked readers if they thought the map on the cow was just a lucky arrangement of spots or if the photo was the product of a Photoshop artist.

There's Something Fishy About This Car

Isaiah 53:2b
"He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him."

Why in the world would engineers at Mercedes-Benz and DaimlerChrysler turn to a fish built like a box for inspiration on automotive design? After all, automakers want their vehicles to travel just as efficiently through air as sharks swim through water. But the boxfish is anything but streamlined.

Why You Were Born and Not Hatched

Job 10:18a
"Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb?"

You can thank roving pieces of DNA that you were born rather than hatched from an egg. At least, that's what evolutionary biologist Vincent Lynch and his team at the University of Chicago tell us. Science News magazine brings us the story about roving pieces of DNA that helped early mammals replace egg-laying in favor of giving birth to live young.

Evolutionists Are Simple Minded

Psalm 9:1
"I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works."

Evolutionists are simple minded. It's a fact! Charles Darwin thought that the cell was virtually as simple as a blob of gelatin with a nucleus inside, and evolutionists have been simple minded ever since.

Seven Flagellar Motors in One

Psalm 141:1
"LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee."

Try as they might, evolutionists are powerless to account for the microscopic rotary motor that propels bacteria through fluid just like a powerboat skims along the surface of a lake. But if the bacterium's flagellar motor troubles evolutionists, they must really be puzzled by the fast-moving MO-1 bacterium. After all, its hair-like flagellum isn't powered by just one motor. It uses seven motors all hooked up in parallel!

Your Potato Chip Bag Is Listening

Ecclesiastes 2:11
"Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun."

If you're concerned about maintaining your privacy in a world that is bent on snooping into every aspect of your life, you may not like what scientists are working on now. Researchers at MIT, Microsoft, and Adobe have developed a computer algorithm that is able to reconstruct an audio signal by analyzing the small vibrations of objects depicted in video. In other words, your potato chip bag is recording your words.

Maxwell's Prayer

Psalm 90:12
"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

The great scientist James Clerk Maxwell, a contemporary of Charles Darwin, was certainly no friend of Darwin's theory of evolution. Even so, the staunchest evolutionists today would agree that Maxwell was a scientist of gigantic proportions, ranking right up there with celebrated scientists like Sir Isaac Newton.
