Smart Lobsters
Proverbs 21:24
Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
Do spiny lobsters know that they are a delicacy to many, if not most, of the carnivores on earth? New research into the social habits of spiny lobsters shows that much of their interaction with each...

God's Design

A Poem Lovely as a Tree

Psalm 96:12
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice.

The gramophone was switched on, 12-inches of vinyl placed on it, and the needle balanced on the disc, in order for us to hear the music. This was my mother’s favorite record, featuring the deep, gravelly bass voice of Paul Robeson, singing a song called “Trees”.

Jesus’ Age for the Earth

John 1:1-3
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Did Jesus get things scientifically wrong? After all, He was a man of His times. Jesus’ followers could never have comprehended the sophistication of evolutionary biology and cosmology, would they?

Jesus’ Age for the EarthYet, in so many places, we read about Jesus stating things that went against the very grain of the society He lived in. This is because He told the truth.

Fountains of the Deep

Genesis 7:11
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

It must have made a tremendous noise, when the Earth’s crust cracked into pieces.

The Singing Lake

Psalm 66:4
"All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; they shall sing praises to Your name."

It's a quiet, cool, overcast morning at the lake. There's a hint of fog in the air and a fine, lightly falling drizzle. Then you notice the sound. It's almost a musical note, and it's coming from the lake. It's almost as if the lake were singing.

Not a Chance!

Psalm 148:7-8
"Praise the LORD from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths; fire and hail, snow and clouds; stormy wind, fulfilling His word…"

Is there any such thing as chance or luck? Does anything ever happen randomly? Many people don't realize that the Bible speaks to these questions.

The Miracle Star

Matthew 2:1-2
"Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men form the East came to Jerusalem, saying, 'Where is He who is born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.'"

What was the star the wise men followed to find the infant Jesus? Some suggest that it was a comet. Others say it was the conjunction of two or more planets or stars. Do any of these theories offer possible explanations?

The King of the Universe

Daniel 4:37
"Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to abase."

That infant in the manger is God's voice to mankind. And despite appearances, He is the King of the universe.

The Governor of Syria

Luke 2:1-2
"And it came to pass on those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria."

Skeptics are forever trying to find errors in the Bible so that they can discredit it as God's Word. When a faithful Bible scholar discovers some puzzle in Scripture, he never assumes that he has found an error. He assumes that he doesn't have all the information necessary to resolve the question.

Evolutionists Have a Back Problem

Psalm 111:10
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever."

Back pain is one of humanity's most common complaints. And the most common explanation one hears for back pain is that our backs hurt because we stand and walk erect.

God's Mind, Human Mind

Isaiah 55:8
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD."

It was only a few years ago that excited supporters of the big bang theory for the origin of the universe announced that their theory had apparently been proven. Now their unverified conclusions are being seriously questioned on several fronts.

Desktop Manufacturing

Genesis 11:6
"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."

We live in a day and age when God has allowed men and women more freedom than He has allowed previous generations. That freedom can be used for worse evil than the world has ever known, or it can be used for more good than the world has ever known. Christians will make the difference.

The Wandering Compass

Job 26:7
"He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing."

The Earth's magnetic field makes compasses work so that Boy Scouts don't get lost in the woods and ships arrive at the correct port. It actually moves over time. This means that navigators periodically need updated information on the position of the pole for their charts.

Screws and Nuts in a Weevil's Legs

1 Corinthians 1:20
"Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?"

On a previous broadcast, we told you about a small hopping insect with gears in its legs, allowing both legs to jump at the exact same moment. Today, I bring to your attention the first animal ever found to have a screw-and-nut mechanism in its body. I'm talking about the weevil.

What's the Smallest Thing You Can See?

Psalm 94:9
"He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?"

Evolutionists never get tired of mocking the supposedly poor design of the human eye. They are attempting to poke a finger into the eye of the Christian's Creator God when they say, "If God is such a good designer, why did he do such a sloppy job with the eye?"

The Blackest Black and Whitest White

Psalm 51:7
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."

Did you know that scientists are working to create new colors? Well, perhaps it's more accurate to say that they are working on new colorants that are being used to add color to other materials.

The Answer Is Blowin' in the Wind

Psalm 92:4
"For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands."

When you were a child, did you ever stick your arm out of the window of your car as it traveled at high speed? If so, you will remember how the fast-moving air currents would push your arm up, down, up, down and so forth.

How Do Your Opals Grow?

Proverbs 20:15
"There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel."

Opals are precious multicolored gemstones made primarily of silica. How do they form? Scientists admit that much of the chemistry is not well understood. However, according to the traditional explanation, their formation begins as water filters through silica-rich rock, dissolving some of the silica. When that water passes through a cavity in a suitable rock, the silica precipitates as a film on the wall of the cavity. After tens of millions of years, say the scientists, you will have an opal.

God's Architecture Wins Again

Psalm 127:1
"Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."

If you live in a temperate climate, you have probably heard your home pop and crack on cold days. Those sounds are caused by the different materials that make up your house contracting at different rates as the temperature falls. At some point, the growing tensions are released and you hear the result. If you live in a warm climate that is subject to hurricanes, you know that a building is likely to fail at the point where different parts of the house, like the roof and wall, meet together.

Tiny Flies Inspire Big Advances in Hearing Aids

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

Do you know how your ears help you pinpoint the location of whatever you are hearing? Two factors come into play. First, you hear the sound louder in the ear that is closer to whatever is producing the sound. And second, the sound arrives at the closer ear a little sooner than the other.

The Amazing Sea Cucumber Man!

Genesis 1:26a
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea…"

Here's an idea for those who create superhero comic books and movies. Introducing the amazing Sea Cucumber Man – able to turn his skin into a hardened shield that can stop bullets cold!
