Today's Creation Moment

Dinosaur Feathers!
Genesis 1:20
"And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven."
Creation Moments isn't in the business of reviewing Hollywood films, and we're not about to start now. However, we do have some thoughts about the whole Jurassic Park movie franchise. Though these...


What Has Evolution Given to the World?

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

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?

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

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

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

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?

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!"

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

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

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?

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

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!

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

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

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

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.    

Six Hundred Years Before Darwin

2 John 1:7
"For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist."

Most people consider Charles Darwin to be the father of evolution. The fact is, someone beat him to it by six hundred years. In the thirteenth century, a Muslim scholar by the name of Nasir al-Din Tusi proposed a theory of evolution that in many ways foreshadowed Darwin's.

Ancient Romans and Nanotechnology

Hebrews 2:6b-7
"What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:"

One of the most interesting artifacts at the British Museum is the Lycurgus Cup, a beautiful goblet made by the Romans sixteen hundred years ago. The cup depicts the story of King Lycurgus, entangled in grapevines for his treachery against Dionysus, the god of wine in Greek mythology.

Tisha B'Av

Matthew 24:1-2
"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."

One of the most solemn days of the year for the Jewish people is not a biblical holy day. No, this national day of mourning – known as Tisha B'Av – is commemorated because of the catastrophes that happened to Israel throughout history on the ninth day of the month of Av.
