Today's Creation Moment

Could Poison Frogs Poison Themselves?
Ecclesiastes 3:21
“Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?”
Why are poison frogs poisonous? Clearly their toxins are very harmful indeed to predators. For this reason, evolutionists would assume that those frogs which produce toxins are likely to be fitter to...

A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism

Psalm 31:24
"Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD."

Since Creation Moments stands firmly on the side of creation as described in the Bible, we disagree at times with the Discovery Institute, the recognized leader of the Intelligent Design movement. But we do have to recognize and applaud them for putting together a list of several hundred scientists who do not agree with Darwinism.

First page of "The Scientific Dissent from Darwinism" list, updated September, 2015I'm talking about the "Scientific Dissent from Darwinism" list. To get on the list, scientists had to agree with the following statement: "We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged."

One such scientist – Dr. Stanley Salthe – is quoted as saying: "Darwinian evolutionary theory was my field of specialization in biology. Among other things, I wrote a textbook on the subject thirty years ago. Meanwhile, however, I have become an apostate from Darwinian theory and have described it as part of modernism's origination myth."

According to the Discovery Institute, they launched the list in 2001 because "the public has been assured that all known evidence supports Darwinism and that virtually every scientist in the world believes the theory to be true. The scientists on this list dispute the first claim and stand as living testimony in contradiction to the second."

Now ask yourself this: If these scientists were courageous in standing up for what they believe, can you – as a believer in Jesus Christ – do anything less?

Heavenly Father, I pray that Your Holy Spirit will embolden me to share the gospel with many people I have been reluctant to talk with about spiritual things. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
