"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called..."
While even many Christians feel obligated to accept millions of evolutionary years, evidence continues to build for a young creation. The evidence has mounted to the point that even many evolutionists feel they must find some explanation for it.
"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained...."
Studies show that it takes about a second to decide whether a person will do A or B. That's much too slow to make a successful typist or pianist. Good typists execute one key stroke every 60 thousands of a second. A pianist can play 30 notes with each hand about every 40 thousands of a second. How do they do it?
"Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?"
While the development of a new science is helping mankind, it says something that many scientists did not intend to say. The science is called biomimetics. As the name suggests, biomimetics is based on the idea that if we copy designs found in nature, we can often improve our own technology.
"What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?"
We have all heard the claims – and school textbooks love to include it – that humans and chimpanzees are about 99 percent genetically identical. However, that claim evaporates when the details of what is being compared are examined.
"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind."
Without a doubt the brain is a marvelous organ, although there is still a great deal to learn about how it works. We do know that brain cells communicate through connections which reach out in three dimensions to other cells. When thought and motion take place, they communicate with each other very quickly. They are even in communication while you sleep.
"And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him...."
Cavemen. The very word conjures images of bearskin clothing, wooden clubs and perhaps some simple stone tools. We think of the cavemen themselves as part ape and certainly less than modern humans. All of these images help make human evolution look more plausible.
"Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied."
Have you ever wondered why blood cells look like red discs that are indented toward the middle? Furthermore, is this distinctive shape an element of design or is it the product of millions of years of mutations and natural selection?
"If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain."
The evolutionists over at the ScienceDaily website must have been overjoyed to write this: "Many families believe religion plays an essential role in childhood moral development. But children of religious parents may not be as altruistic as those parents think, according to a new international study from the University of Chicago."
"The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence."
On our previous Creation Moments broadcast, we told you about researchers who are claiming that our hands evolved so that they can be formed into fists for fighting. Now that same group of researchers is also telling us that our faces evolved to withstand being punched.
"And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him."
Today on Creation Moments we bring you a rather bizarre story. Its seems that scientists used the arms and hands of corpses in an attempt to show that human hands evolved for fighting. True story. In fact, it was reported in the Journal of Experimental Biology.
"And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day."
According to the ScienceDaily website, "New research involving a psychologist from the University of York has revealed for the first time that both belief in God and prejudice towards immigrants can be reduced by directing magnetic energy into the brain."
"Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest."
Considering the decades of evolutionary indoctrination going on in schools and the media, you might think that most Americans no longer believe in a Creator. But that's not what a recent survey from LifeWay Research reveals.
"And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt."
"Have you ever heard the claim 'all smart people are atheists', or maybe its inverse: 'people who believe in God are dumb'?" So begins a column at Examiner.com by a writer who decided to see if this is true by taking a closer look at the ten highest IQs ever recorded. His conclusion is that the most intelligent people on the planet believe in God.
"I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears."
Many men today believe that the shedding of tears is a sign of weakness. They seem to have forgotten that Jesus wept when told that Lazarus had died. Jeremiah is known as the "weeping prophet" who shed tears over a backslidden nation. Even David, the slayer of tens of thousands, wrote that he often drenched his bed with tears.
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good."
Have you noticed how many of the most admired atheists come from a science background? I could name dozens – Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett and Stephen Hawking, to name a few. Thousands of people are fans of the late Carl Sagan and his protégé, Neil deGrass Tyson. Some of these atheists are practically superstars with followers numbering in the millions.
