Today's Creation Moment

Researchers Find a Hidden Cost to the Internet
Proverbs 18:24
"A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother."
Have you been on the internet lately? If so, it may be costing you more than you think. That's the suggestion of a study done by researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. The study...

Humans

Who Is Against Evolution?

in
Job 21:7, 14
“Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power? . . . Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.”

Lots of folks would like you to believe that only ignorant, backward people reject evolution. But is that really the case? The fact is that the case for evolution is so weak that many scientists who cannot even be called friends of Christianity reject it on scientific grounds!

Morality Is for Humans

in
Leviticus 11:44a
“For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy:”

Is right and wrong really a matter of doing what you think is best? What does morality have to do with origins?

Humanity – Past, Present and Future

in
Genesis 1:26
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

A straightforward reading of Genesis offers a very different story of humanity than does modern evolutionary science. Does the rest of the Bible contradict evolution too? Can Genesis and evolution be harmonized?

The Very Hairs of Your Head

in
Matthew 10:30
“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”

In showing how the Creator is intimately involved with His creation, Jesus said that the very hairs of our heads are numbered by Him. No detail is too small to escape His attention; no change misses His careful and loving eye.

Smart Heart

in
Hebrews 3:10
“Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.”

People sometimes wonder why, with all the marvels science can design and build, it cannot build a good replacement for the heart. As medical science learns more about the heart, it becomes clear that replacing this complex mass of muscles is more difficult than might be imagined.

Engines of the Body

in
Job 10:10-11
“Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.”

The automatic transmission in a vehicle changes gears in response to changing power demands and driving conditions. Likewise, the muscles in your body change gears in a sense, in response to your changing needs for them.

Why the Boomerang Returns

in
Psalm 119:73
“Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.”

For many people, the fun of the boomerang lies in the fact that it seems to go against common sense. You throw the boomerang away from you, and it returns to you.

Literally Making Yourself Sick

in
1 Peter 5:7
“Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.”

We sometimes hear of a person worrying so much about something that they become obsessed with fear. We talk about someone being “worried sick.”

Answering Young People’s Questions

in
Proverbs 22:6
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Could it be true that we have unwittingly been telling our young people that Christianity is irrelevant? As I present the evidences for creation and explain to young people the problems with evolution, a similar pattern emerges each time. While the material is new to them, it rings true. Soon, the questions start, and Answering young people's questionsthey begin to express anger as they realize they have been misled by those teaching evolution.

Flagellum Fascination

in
Luke 8:8
“And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

The electron microscope was developed over 80 years ago and enables us to probe the secrets of God’s creation. One of the most surprising discoveries shows an incredible similarity between those little whips called flagellum – which some microbes use for swimming – and the inside of your ear!

Science Tries to See

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.”

Scientists have tried to tackle the job of creating a machine that is able to see as well as the human eye. In the process, they are gaining a new appreciation for the wonderful gift of sight.

Intelligent Patience

in
2 Peter 3:9
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

A 1989 study on patience and reward echoes what the Bible has to say about patience, reward and temptation.

Another Evolutionary Myth About Man

in
Genesis 4:2b
“And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.”

According to man’s history as presented in the Bible, farming and shepherding were among the first occupations. Genesis specifically tells us that in the second generation of human beings there was a shepherd, Abel, and a farmer, Cain. Evolutionists disagree and tell us the first men were hunters and gatherers.

Your Busy Liver

in
Hebrews 3:4
“For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.”

An adult’s liver is about the size of a football and weighs about three pounds, making it the body’s largest internal organ. Tucked neatly beneath the ribs, your liver performs more than 500 different tasks. It is a vital link between your heart, lungs and digestive system.

Early Man’s Written Language

Exodus 17:14a
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua…”

Evolutionary scientists have been amazed by the discovery that the very oldest artifacts left by man indicate the presence of written language and mathematical ability. Creationists, on the other hand, are not surprised and predicted that evidence would be found to show that mankind has always had a language.

The Brain’s Master Clock

in
Daniel 2:21
“And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.”

Our bodies have many different rhythms. For example, your body temperature and your blood pressure cycle throughout the 24-hour day. Other body rhythms complete their cycle in 7 days or 28 days and so on.

True Milk of Human Kindness

in
Jeremiah 32:22
“And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey....”

While many people recognize the virtues of feeding their infants human breast milk, science is still learning its amazing secrets. Although cow’s milk contains many substances found in human milk, it does not contain certain very specific substances necessary to protect the infant.

You Need a Healthy Laugh

in
Proverbs 17:22
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

Laughing is good for you even if it does begin with the release of adrenaline and other stress hormones.

A Real Crime-Fighting Bat

Mark 4:22
“For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither is any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.”

Airport security is a major concern these days. There are many ways for those who don’t have good intentions to hide things beneath their clothes. Now, thanks to a design they borrowed from our Creator God, scientists have come up with a way to make that virtually impossible,

Life from Blood

in
Genesis 9:4
“But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.”

The Bible teaches us that our physical life is in our blood. It also teaches us that our spiritual and eternal life is dependent upon the blood of Jesus Christ.
