Today's Creation Moment

Creation Truth in a Comic Strip
Psalm 146:1-2
"Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being."
I admit it. I enjoy reading comic strips from time to time. I especially love the single-panel "Far Side" cartoons by Gary Larson. He's one of the only cartoonists who has repeatedly focused on the...

History

Those Strange Nazca Lines

in
Genesis 4:22a
"And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron:"

I'm sure that many of you have seen aerial photos of massive drawings that can only be viewed while flying over the Nazca Desert south of Lima, Peru. Some of these images depict spiders, hummingbirds and monkeys. Others are perfectly straight lines that run as far as five miles. In fact, writes Dr. Donald Chittick in The Puzzle of Ancient Man, "the lines are as straight as our best modern methods of aerial surveying could make them."

Eyewitness Account of the Exodus?

in
Exodus 10:22
"And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:"

In the early 19th century, a papyrus was found in Egypt – called the Ipuwer papyrus – that appears to be an actual eyewitness account of the events recorded in the book of Exodus. Of course, nearly all secular archaeologists attempted to say the papyrus does not describe these events. After all, their worldview is opposed to the historic reliability of the Bible.

Immigration Problem

in
Exodus 22:21
"Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt."

On an earlier broadcast, I shared with you how Darwinism led to racism and horrendous acts that are comparable to what terrorists are doing today with unspeakable acts of violence. Though our broadcast today tells a far less gruesome story, it does show how Darwinism even played a part in America's early immigration policies.

What Has Evolution Given to the World?

in
Ecclesiastes 1:14
"I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit."

We get lots of interesting letters and e-mails here at Creation Moments. Most of them are positive, but occasionally we hear from someone who disagrees with us. One such writer told us that there are, and I quote, "thousands upon thousands of articles written in medical journals about how evolution has been of enormous benefit in medicine."

¿Fue Noé un neurocirujano?

Génesis 50:2
"Después mandó José a los médicos que estaban a su servicio que embalsamaran[a] a su padre, y los médicos embalsamaron a Israel”.

La mayoría de nosotros quedamos sorprendidos cuando supimos que los médicos del antiguo Egipto realizaban cirugías de cerebro.  Incluso lo más sorprendente es que el cráneo de sus pacientes mostraban cicatrización: ellos realizaban cirugías muy complicadas sin matar a sus pacientes.  El hecho que los médicos tuvieran el conocimiento para hacer operaciones tan delicadas hace miles de años atrás desafía el punto de vista evolucionista contemporáneo de que los humanos iniciaron como seres primitivos.
    

Biblical Skepticism Challenged

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

Unfortunately, many biblical archaeologists do not accept the Bible's account of the period of the judges. They believe that there was no distinct Israel during this time.

What Was the Monster of Troy?

in
I Corinthians 12:2
"Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led."

While the word "fossil" is a modern term, people thousands of years ago may have known about fossils. If they did, they didn't know what fossils were. That's the new theory proposed by a group that includes a folklorist and some paleontologists. Their theory is based on the figures painted on a 2,500 year old Corinthian vase.

The Romans Beat Columbus to the New World

in
Psalm 104:25-26a
"So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. There go the ships:"

On recent Creation Moments programs we have talked about several evidences that strongly suggest contact between Europe and the New World before Columbus. Some evidence even suggests that knowledge of the New World was common before the Dark Ages. Now, mainstream science has concluded that the Romans made it nearly as far as Mexico City by the second century A.D.

Egyptian Discoveries Enlighten, Support the Bible

in
Exodus 3:7
"And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;"

The Bible tells us that at the beginning of the Israelites' 430-year stay in Egypt, they were well respected for Joseph's sake. Later, when the Egyptian leadership forgot how Joseph saved Egypt, it began making their lives difficult.

The Real Sin at the Tower of Babel

in
Genesis 11:6
"And the LORD said, 'Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.'"

A misunderstanding of some of the history recorded in Genesis has led some people to conclude that we are repeating the sins committed at the Tower of Babel. After all, we build huge cities and incredibly high skyscrapers. English is now virtually a universal language, and the Internet has led to the international pooling of knowledge.

Chinese Indians?

in
Acts 21:2
"And finding a ship sailing over to Phoenicia, we went aboard and set sail."

Today we look back on the European migration to North America as one of the results of a more enlightened age. When we do this, we forget that the American Indians migrated to North and South America from Asia and built their own culture long before the Europeans. If what a Texas Christian University linguist says is true, the Olmec Indians of the American Southwest and Central America may not have been Indians at all.

"Israel Owes Us for the Ten Plagues!"

in
Exodus 10:4
"Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:"

Lots of people today are skeptical that the ten plagues of Egypt described in the book of Exodus really took place. Today we'll tell you about a prominent Egyptian columnist who believes that the book of Exodus is historically true even though he has no love of the Hebrew Scriptures.

Liquid Gold

in
Proverbs 11:28
"He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch."

Alchemy is considered to have played a significant role in the development of early modern science. The history of alchemy is filled with fascinating stories about the precursor of chemistry and includes the names of such famous scientists as Robert Boyle and Roger Bacon. But perhaps no tale is more fascinating than the true story of glass-maker and alchemist Hennig Brand.

Doctor Moses

in
Leviticus 13:45
"And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean."

Did Moses know that germs – invisible to the naked eye – were the cause of disease thousands of years before the invention of the microscope?

Satellite Image of the Exodus?

in
Acts 7:36
"He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years."

The 40-year-long journey of Moses and the Israelites from Egypt to the land of promise continues to fascinate movie makers. From Cecil B. DeMille's 1923 silent film "The Ten Commandments" to the more recent "Exodus: Gods and Kings", the story of the Exodus never fails to excite our imagination. Even so, there are Bible scholars out there who are saying the Exodus never really happened. Some even insist that the Israelites never set foot in ancient Egypt.

Another Attempt to Erase Jesus from History

in
Psalm 50:22
"Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver."

When most of us were in school, everybody knew that the terms "BC" and "AD" meant Before Christ and Anno Domine, meaning "in the year of our Lord." But those terms are disappearing as authors now prefer the terms "CE" and "BCE", which are abbreviations for "Common Era" and "Before the Common Era."

You Don't Use Science to Test Scripture!

in
Matthew 24:35
"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."

How often have you heard people say that the Bible must be wrong because science disagrees with it? That attitude certainly isn't new. It was common in 1932 when Dr. Harry Rimmer wrote his classic book, The Harmony of Science and Scripture. Even back then, Bible skeptics were using science to test Scripture. But as Dr. Rimmer pointed out, when science has matured to the point of infallibility, then and only then could it be used to test Scripture.

The South-Pointing Carriage

in
1 Samuel 17:22
"And David left his carriage in the hand of the keeper of the carriage, and ran into the army, and came and saluted his brethren."

Numerous Chinese legends refer to a mysterious carriage on which a mechanical rider rode. Its arm was outstretched and continuously pointed south no matter which way the carriage turned. How did it accomplish such a feat? If you're guessing that magnets had something to do with it, you'd be wrong. Actually, the south-pointing chariot was invented about 800 years before the first navigational use of a magnetic compass.

The Greatest Mass Murderer of All Time

in
John 8:44a
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning…"

Who do you think was the greatest mass murderer the world has ever seen? Adolf Hitler? Not even close. According to Creation Moments Board Chairman Mark Cadwallader, the greatest mass murderer was China's Mao Tse Tung. During his political reign, Mao was responsible for murdering 77 million people while enforcing his "Great Leap Forward", and he "purged" millions more during what he called "The Cultural Revolution".

Where the Battle Rages

in
Psalm 140:7
"O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle."

Today's Creation Moment is taken from a viewpoint commentary written by Creation Moments Board Chairman Mark Cadwallader.

Creation Moments Board Chairman Mark CadwalladerThe date: October 31, 1517. The place: Germany. The event: Martin Luther nails his famous 95 Theses to the Wittenberg church door. Luther was primarily protesting the sale of indulgences, a direct attack on God's free gift of salvation.
