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...
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...

Humans

Get a Younger Brain!

in
Genesis 5:32
"And Noah was five hundred years old, and Noah begot Shem, Ham, and Japheth."

How did Noah have sons and build the Ark when he was 500 years old? Today, scientists can measure a marked decline in mental abilities even in a healthy 50 year old man. Undoubtedly there are several factors, with God behind each of them. However, one of the answers appears to be nutrition.

Your Multipurpose Eye

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

Scientists have learned that the eye is a multipurpose organ. They have long tried to figure out how our internal biological clock is set. This amazing clock is located in the brain and follows a period of almost exactly a day. It controls many of the body's rhythms, so it's important that it is properly set.

Did the Ice Man Use Acupuncture?

in
Jeremiah 17:14
"Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise."

You may remember the "ice man" discovered in a glacier in the Alps in 1991. His frozen body had been preserved in the ice for thousands of years. Even his hair, beard and skin were largely intact. While there is some debate about when he lived, he is easily dated, in the biblical framework, to within several centuries after the Flood.

Always Be Ready

in
1 Peter 3:15b
"…be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:"

Not long ago, a member of our Creation Moments staff went under the surgeon's knife. Cancerous growths had been discovered through a routine colonoscopy, so to keep the cancer from spreading, the growths and his ascending colon was surgically removed.

Tech Titans Defy Death

in
Psalm 90:10
"The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away."

What do the billionaires who founded such tech companies as PayPal, Google, Facebook, eBay, Napster and Netscape all have in common? They are all searching for the fountain of youth, hoping to extend the human lifespan to 150 years or much longer.

Designed to Stand

Ephesians 6:14
"Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;"

Try as they might, no evolutionist can successfully explain how a four-legged ape-like creature evolved into a two-legged creature like man.

Why Did God Give Us Fingerprints?

in
Genesis 27:21
"And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not."

Criminals who have been linked to a crime through their fingerprints may not be happy that they were born with a unique pattern of "wrinkles" on their fingertips. But we can all be glad that God gave us fingerprints because they greatly improve our sense of touch.

The Stupidity Virus

in
Ecclesiastes 10:3
"Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool."

As we've mentioned on previous Creation Moments programs, our bodies contain trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi, most of which are harmless. But researchers have now discovered a virus that infects human brains and makes us more stupid. No, we're not making this up.

Dawkins Becomes a Creationist

in
Luke 24:31
"And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight."

When Creation Moments posted a story with the headline "Dawkins Becomes a Creationist," many evolutionists reacted in disbelief, saying that one of their own – namely, Richard Dawkins – could never become a creationist. And yet, a scientist and veterinarian by the name of Karen Dawkins was also an evolutionist … until God changed her way of thinking.

Why You Were Born and Not Hatched

Job 10:18a
"Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb?"

You can thank roving pieces of DNA that you were born rather than hatched from an egg. At least, that's what evolutionary biologist Vincent Lynch and his team at the University of Chicago tell us. Science News magazine brings us the story about roving pieces of DNA that helped early mammals replace egg-laying in favor of giving birth to live young.

First Hero in the Bible's Hall of Faith?

in
Hebrews 11:6
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

See if you can answer the following question from Creation Moments Board Director Mark Cadwallader. The eleventh chapter of Hebrews includes a list of heroes of the faith. Each verse that introduces a faith hero begins with the words "by faith" or "through faith." Can you name the very first one mentioned in Hebrews 11? Also, can you identify why he or she was said to exercise faith?

Confrontation with a Radical Atheist

in
2 Peter 3:12
"Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?"

Creation Moments and friends of our ministry spend countless hours sharing their faith and the truth of biblical creation on social networking websites. One such creationist, Allen Dunckley, Th.D. recently ran into a person he describes as a radical atheist. The atheist laid down a challenge with these words: "Demonstrate a causal link to why your god needs to exist or does exist."

Our Multi-Directional Genetic Code

in
Romans 11:33
"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!"

Have you ever heard the palindrome "Madam, I'm Adam"? With a palindrome, the letters are exactly the same whether you read the sentence from left to right or from right to left.

Did We Once Walk on All Fours?

in
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."

Evolutionists tell us that we used to walk on all fours, just like the apes from which we evolved. While this is fine for the Planet of the Apes science-fiction films, creationists are adamant that such a theory should not appear in school textbooks.

On Bended Knees

in
Romans 14:11
"For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God."

While attending school in England, I was taught that my knee is a hinge joint – a rather simple design, much like the hinge of a door. But I now know that the knee is actually a masterpiece of design that could only have come from the hand of a supremely intelligent Designer and Creator.

What If Noah's Ark Is Found?

in
2 Timothy 3:12
"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."

What if explorers actually found Noah's Ark? Would it instantly change unbelievers into followers of Jesus? Would scientists suddenly drop their belief in an old earth and millions of years of evolution and start believing the Bible?

Mercury Drives Zebra Finches Crazy

1 Samuel 21:13
"And he changed his behaviour before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard."

A few days ago, a light bulb on my ceiling fan exploded, showering my room with thousands of large, small, and tiny pieces of glass. I breathed a sigh of relief because I hadn't been hit by any flying glass. But there's another reason I was grateful.

"Was I Going to Be Arrested?"

in
Acts 1:8
"But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."

One of our listeners – pastor and creationist Phil Spry – told us a remarkable story that I'm going to share with you in his own words.    

Are You Superstitious?

in
1 Timothy 4:7
"But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness."

Are you superstitious? A Harris poll conducted early in 2014 found that: 21 percent of Americans believe that knocking on wood prevents bad luck; 20 percent wouldn't dream of walking under a ladder; 14 percent believe it's unlucky to open an umbrella indoors; and 12 percent think the number 13 is unlucky. In fact, 14 percent of Americans said they believe Friday the 13th is an unlucky day.

Humans with Tails?

1 Peter 3:15
"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:"

Creation Moments has aired a number of programs about theistic evolution. We have also written a number of articles, which you will find at our website, about this false and dangerous belief. We interact with theistic evolutionists almost every day and have found them to be almost identical to atheists in their exceedingly low view of the Bible.
