God Helps Design a Better Submarine
Psalm 69:34
"Let the heaven and earth praise Him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein."
Engineers who design vehicles to move through fluids face a quandary. A torpedo-shaped vehicle can move quickly and efficiently through a fluid like water, but it is difficult to maneuver precisely...

Evolutionary Scientists Find a Surprise!

Matthew 24:44
"Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him."

According to the Bible's history, human beings were created perfectly by God about 6,000 years ago. We should note that this means we were not only morally perfect, but genetically perfect as well. According to evolutionists, our ancestors split off from the monkeys millions of years ago. Both viewpoints agree that each generation of human beings adds mutations to the ongoing human gene pool.

How many mutations are added by each human generation? Researchers with the University of Sussex and the University of Edinburgh looked for the answer to this question. They examined DNA from living parents and children, as well as known mutation rates for mammals. They assumed that some mutations would be fatal and thus not added to the overall gene pool. They also assumed that a very few mutations might be helpful, an assumption that has never been demonstrated to be true. They finally calculated that 100 harmful mutations are added to the human gene pool by each generation. Their published conclusion was that, considering the millions of years humans have been evolving, we should have easily accumulated enough mutations to make us extinct a long time ago!

This research is clear evidence for a recent appearance of man and implies that the Earth was created a relatively short time ago, as portrayed by the Genesis account. However, human life on Earth will end when Jesus Christ returns to collect all believers to live in a new heaven and Earth.

Prayer: 
Lord, Your Word is true so I eagerly await Your return for me. Amen.
