History

Eyewitness to a Volcano's Birth

in
Judges 5:5
"The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel."

How long does it take for a volcano to form? Scientists who reject the flood of Noah's time insist that it takes many thousands or millions of years. And yet, we know from eyewitness testimony that at least one volcano – Mount Paricutin in Mexico – grew to over 300 feet in height within a week of its birth.

Mystery Mountains Don't Have to Be a Mystery

in
Genesis 8:5
"And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen."

There are three ways to make mountains. The movement of two crustal plates running into one another will push up mountains. Likewise, volcanic activity will produce mountains. Finally, massive erosion of soft strata from harder strata can also create mountains.

What Did History Do with the Dinosaurs?

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."

We are often asked why, if the Bible's account of creation is true, don't dinosaurs appear in any historical documentation. After all, according to the Bible, both the great land creatures and humans were created on day six of creation week.

The Real King Solomon's Mines

in
2 Samuel 8:14a
"And he put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom put he garrisons, and all they of Edom became David's servants."

There is a school of biblical interpretation that does not consider the Bible divinely inspired. For example, they say that the Bible's description of David's conquests and Solomon's wealth and greatness were written down many centuries after they lived. The stories had been verbally passed down, getting wildly exaggerated through the years. When they lived, Israel and Edom were little more than a few small, insignificant tribal villages.

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."
