Reptilian Housing Development Expert
Psalm 40:5
Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would...
He looks slow and unimportant. He spends 90 percent of his time underground. But the gopher tortoise constructs a housing development that is home to over 360 species. In addition, his  tunnels...

More Good News About Coffee

in
2 Timothy 3:16
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"

One of the most popular broadcasts Creation Moments has ever done was the one about the health benefits of coffee. That's not surprising when you consider all the coffee drinkers out there. However, some people did write to tell us that we should have mentioned that the caffeine in coffee is a diuretic and that coffee drinking can lead to dehydration.

Drink Your Orange Juice

in
Genesis 1:29
"And God said, Behold, I have given you every ... tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."

Presumably, before the fall into sin, we didn't have any bad cholesterol, or at least it didn't do any damage in our bloodstream. The so-called "bad cholesterol" is low-density-lipoprotein. It's called bad because it tends to cause our arteries to clog unless countered by the so-called "good cholesterol" or high-density-lipoprotein.

Music and Language Are Linked

in
Psalm 40:3
"And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."

Evolutionists often claim that language and music evolved independently of each other. However, new research along several lines is showing that there is a close connection between music and language.

What Coral and Humans Share

Psalm 95:6
"O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker."

According to the theory of evolution, all life is related. There is claimed to be a hierarchy of rising complexity from the earliest simple organisms to man. The earliest organisms are said to include corals, sea anemones and jellyfish that thrived 500 million years ago. These early creatures eventually led to the first creatures to move onto land, and worms were among them.

The Most Interesting Sounds You've Never Heard

in
Psalm 77:17
"The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad."

We are surrounded by sounds, some of which can be louder than an airliner taking off. Yet, we never hear these sounds. It's called infrasound. It's real sound that can be recorded if you have the right equipment.

Baby May Be in Charge of His Own Birth

in
Galatians 4:19
"My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you..."

Does the mother's body or the unborn baby's body trigger the birth process? Those who advise that the baby will come when it's ready may be correct.

Rejoice in God's Goodness

in
Proverbs 15:13
"A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken."

There are countless scientific studies designed to find out how diet, environment and our habits influence our health. These studies urged us to eat this, not eat that and generally give up bad habits.

Who Invented the Decimal Point?

in
Matthew 5:11
"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."

Many evolutionists and atheists have fooled themselves into thinking that those who believe in God are incapable of making important contributions in the fields of math and science. Today we're going to take a look at just a few individuals to prove how false that claim really is.

Why Did God Give Us Fingernails?

in
3 John 1:2
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."

Why did God give us fingernails? So we can scratch our itches? To serve as hardhats for our sensitive fingertips? Or did our Creator give us fingernails as a diagnostic window into our bodies?

Bad Design – A Really Bad Argument!

in
Psalm 139:14
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."

On our previous program, we told you how evolutionists enjoy finding fault with what they consider to be bad designs in nature – particularly the poorly designed human body. They aren't using such arguments to critique evolution, of course. They are poking an accusing finger into the eye of God. If God is so smart, they taunt, why did He make so many mistakes?

And a Little Child Shall Lead Him

in
Isaiah 11:6
"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them."

In the early 1950s, people were stunned when former Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers testified that Alger Hiss, an American government official, was spying on the U.S. for Russia. In his book Witness, Chambers relates how a little child led him to change his beliefs and the course of his life.

Why Do We Sigh?

in
Psalm 150:6
"Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD."

As we all know, coughing is a reflex that clears our breathing passages from secretions, irritants, foreign particles and even microbes that might make us sick. We also know that sneezing is a reflex that cleanses our nasal cavity by forcefully expelling foreign particles and irritants. But why do we sigh? Is it just because we're exasperated or surprised?

Human Hand Is Evidence of a Creator

in
Psalm 2:2-4
"The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision."

Is the human hand evidence of a Creator? In a paper which appeared in the science publication PLOS ONE, a team of four scientists claimed that the link between muscles and hand movements is the product of "proper design by the Creator." The paper goes on to say that human hand coordination "should indicate the mystery of the Creator's invention," and concludes by again claiming the mechanical architecture of the hand is the result of "proper design by the Creator."

Evolutionary Hype!

Job 17:5
"He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail."

In a surprisingly candid article at the pro-evolution website ScienceDaily, one scientist admits that most fossil finds include a generous amount of hype.

Can You Wiggle Your Ears?

in
Proverbs 1:22
"How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?"

Evolutionists tell us that the muscles which control movement of the ears – the auriculars – are vestigial. That is, they might have been useful to humans in our evolutionary past, but other than allowing some people to wiggle their ears, they have no purpose today.

From Earth to Mars in Three Days

in
1 Corinthians 15:52
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

Even if you haven't seen the movie The Martian, you know it takes several months for a spacecraft from Earth to reach the red planet. But if NASA has anything to say about it, that trip might someday take only a matter of days.

Are Biblical Creationists a Stumbling Block?

in
Mark 10:5-6
"And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female."

In his excellent article in Creation magazine "Jesus on the Age of the Earth", Carl Wieland reports that the standard secular timeline of billions of years for the age of the universe is "accepted by most people in the evangelical Christian world." He went on to write, "Some would even say that to even dispute billions of years is to place an unnecessary stumbling block in the way of any scientifically-minded potential converts."

Creationist Astrophysicist

in
Psalm 8:3
"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;"

Evolutionists would be foolish to question creation scientist Dr. Markus Blietz's credentials as a legitimate scientist. Dr. Blietz earned his Ph.D. in astrophysics at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics and now works in the semiconductor industry in charge of helping researchers develop new ideas.

Evolutionists Still Clueless on Origin of Life

in
Job 32:3
"Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job."

How good are evolutionists at explaining the origin of life? Not very! Listen to what some have written and said. First up is professor Paul Davies from the University of Arizona. In his book The Fifth Miracle: The Search for the Origin and Meaning of Life, he wrote, "Obviously, Darwinian evolution can operate only if life of some sort already exists." He continued: "Darwinism can offer absolutely no help in explaining that all-important first step: the origin of life."

So Where Is Everybody?

Jeremiah 10:12
"He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion."

On our previous broadcast, we told you about the Fermi paradox. In case you missed it, the Fermi paradox is the attempt by scientists to account for the fact that we have not come in contact with extraterrestrial life. This is a very real problem for evolutionists because they believe that if life evolved here, evolution must have occurred on countless other planets. So why haven't we found anybody out there? Here are a few attempts to solve the Fermi paradox.
