Today's Creation Moment

Were Dinosaurs Warm Blooded?
Psalm 147:2-3
"The LORD builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel. He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds."
Dinosaur fossil hunters and paleontologists have long debated whether dinosaurs were warm-blooded or cold-blooded. With reptile characteristics, it was expected that dinosaurs would be cold-blooded....


"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.

Where Did All the Water Go?

Genesis 8:3
"And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated."

Evolutionists and atheists like to think they've got Bible-believing creationists stumped when they ask, "If a worldwide flood really happened, where did all the water go? If Noah's flood covered the mountaintops, what happened to all that water?"

Greek Pyramids

John 7:38
"He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."

When one hears the term "pyramid builders," one usually thinks of the Egyptians, Incas or the Aztecs, whose famous pyramids were built for religious purposes. You may not know that the Greeks also built pyramids. But as we might expect of the Greeks, their pyramids served a practical, everyday purpose.

Why There Was No October 5, 1582

Genesis 1:14
"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…"

Did you know that there was no October 5, 1582? There wasn't even an October 6 that year. Why? The story begins with the Earth's orbit. A year is exactly 365 days, 5 hours 48 minutes and 46 seconds longer. This means that every year when the day of your birth arrives, the Earth is not exactly where it was in its orbit on the day you were born. Though the eleven-minute error is small, it does add up over hundreds of years.

The "Uncle Dragon Country"

Isaiah 52:10
"The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God."

Historians have dismissed many allegedly ancient maps as modern forgeries because the maps show features that the ancients supposedly knew nothing about. Among the more credible ancient maps are 20 variations of ancient Chinese maps that may be as much as 4,000 years old. Some of these maps are held in museums around the world. What's more, the maps accurately record features all over the world!

The Golden Minute

Daniel 3:1a
"Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits…"

Why do 60 seconds make a minute? Why does an hour have 60 minutes? After all, there are no natural reasons for this. A year is a natural time measurement, based on the sun's position in the sky. Well, believe it or not, there may be connection between the length of an hour and the golden statue built by King Nebuchadnezzar that Daniel and his friends refused to worship.

The Bible: Convincing History

Joshua 11:11
"And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not any left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire."

The Bible tells us that in conquering Canaan, Joshua destroyed the city of Hazor, which was the chief city in the area. Bible critics are usually skeptical of the claims made by the Bible, especially when it comes to Israel's conquest of Canaan. Excavations at Hazor began in 1955 and have gone on sporadically ever since. Archaeologists wanted to know when Hazor was destroyed and who it was that destroyed it. Doubting that Israel could have caused the destruction, some suggested Hazor was destroyed by the Philistines, by another Canaanite city, or the Egyptians.

1,300-Year Old Recording Discovered?

Genesis 4:21
"And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ."

If you've ever seen any photographs of Mayan pyramids, you will probably remember that they typically have a large set of stairs going to the top. Now an acoustics expert offers some interesting evidence that these steps may in fact be the world's oldest recording.

Has Aaron's Y Chromosome Been Found?

Exodus 40:13
"And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office."

According to the biblical chronology, God ordered Aaron to be consecrated as the first priest of Israel about 3,400 years ago. From Aaron, priesthood was passed down from father to son until the official priesthood ended with the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. After that, fathers would tell their children that they were descended from the priestly class. Though only these oral histories exist today, modern Judaism still honors Aaron's descendants. Today they are called cohanim, which is the plural of cohen, meaning "priest" in Hebrew.
