The Amphipod's Unique Escape
James 4:7
"Submit yourself therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you."
The hunted are smart to stay downwind of the hunter. Many predators hunt using scent, at least in part. The same principle works in water. Many predators smell chemicals given off by their prey and...

New Antibiotic Discovered Inside Your Nose!

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

According to researchers from the University of Tübingen and the German Center for Infection Research, there's a bacterium in your nose that may have already saved your life numerous times in the past and will likely save your life many times more in the future. That bacterium – Staphylococcus lugdunensis – is well known for inhabiting your nose. But now it has come to light that the bacterium produces a previously unknown antibiotic named Lugdunin.

Habits Are Real Brain-Changers

in
Romans 8:29
"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."

Ever wonder why habits are so hard to break? If you think it's just a matter of weak willpower or cravings that refuse to subside, scientists from Duke University have startling news for you. They have found that habits leave a lasting mark on specific circuits in the brain, priming you to keep engaging in the habitual activities.

Warning: Space Travel May Be Hazardous to Your Health

1 Peter 5:8
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour…"

From 1961 to 1972, the Apollo space program captured the world's attention with its 11 manned flights into space, its tragedies and its triumphs. Though the program is best remembered for the failed mission of Apollo 13, NASA succeeded beyond measure when it landed a man on the moon in 1969.

Brain Food

Song of Solomon 4:14
"Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:"

On our previous Creation Moments broadcast, we had good news for coffee drinkers – specifically, that the caffeine in coffee does not make a person dehydrated. The long-held myth that coffee is a diuretic was the product of 90-years-old bad science. Well, today we've got even more good news about something you might already be consuming at breakfast. Once you hear how feeding it to laboratory mice improved their learning ability, you might want to make it a regular part of your family's breakfast.

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.
