Today's Creation Moment

The Importance of Good Parents
Ephesians 6:1
"Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right."
Do good parents undo their best efforts when they place a child in day care? Who has more influence on a child's development when that child must be placed in day care? Recently we have heard about...

Origins - Not a Scientific Issue at All

Evolutionary scientists today act as if "science" is the only way to determine whether something is true. But is this a proper way to learn the truth of a one-time event that is rooted in history?

CSI – or Crime Scene Investigation – might make you think so. Since the TV series focuses on forensic science and the study of physical evidence found at crime scenes, many TV watchers believe that such hard, physical evidence is absolutely necessary in order to solve a crime. But if you ask people in law enforcement, you'll learn that other kinds of evidence are just as important.

For instance, if the suspect can prove he was a thousand miles away from the crime scene at the time of the murder, this evidence proves he didn't pull the trigger. Investigators rely on such evidence to make inferences that are essential in crime solving, and this has absolutely nothing to do with DNA sampling, fingerprints and the other tools of the CSI team. Rather, it deals with eyewitness testimony, consideration of motives, the opportunity to commit the crime, plus many other lines of evidence.

Turning now to the evolution-creation debate, the origin of the universe is an historical issue and is not a scientific issue at all. It is not testable, repeatable, observable or falsifiable as the scientific method requires. Scientists can make guesses at what happened, but their guesses are predicated on the assumptions that God doesn't exist and that the rate at which processes occur now are identical to the rate they occurred in the past (uniformitarianism).

Unlike evolutionary scientists, however, biblical creationists know that the origin of the universe is an historical issue … and they do not start by assuming that God doesn't exist. Since origins is an historical, one-time event, creationists start by asking if eyewitness testimony is available. Indeed it is – the eyewitness account recorded in the Bible.

That's why creationists and not evolutionists know what really happened ... in the beginning.
