Microbe Argues for God's Unlimited Creativity
Genesis 1:20
"And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven."
Aluminum, the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust, is usually thought to be poisonous to life. When aluminum becomes too concentrated in soil, it will greatly reduce crop yield. No known living...

Were You Once a Fish?

Romans 1:25
“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

In 1866, a German scientist and strong supporter of Darwin, Ernst Haeckel, got into trouble for faking evidence. He supposedly showed that developing embryos go through the earlier evolutionary stages of their species. The scientific community investigated his so called discovery and found that he had faked his drawings. Unfortunately, some textbooks today – well over a century later – still present this faked evidence in support of evolution.

One of the most widely used “evidences” used to support this idea today is the claim that the developing human fetus has “gill slits” at one point in its development. In fact, a United States ambassador used this argument in support of abortion in an issue of National Review.

The truth is, the developing fetus has folds of skin around its neck that contain the developing organs found in the neck. These folds have nothing in common with gills. While no scientist today accepts this theory – and it is even refuted in most encyclopedias – it can still be found in textbooks used by high school students! Why? It would seem that few scientists have the courage to challenge this idea they know is wrong because it might make them appear to oppose evolution! But even worse is that this anti scientific idea continues to be used as a “scientific” justification for abortion.

Yes, it’s true. The wrong view on origins can result in some disastrous “science” as well as human suffering!

Prayer: 
Heavenly Father, it is especially easy, even for Your people, to fall into an inadvertent worship of the creation in place of the Creator in our materialistic age. Help me root this sin out of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
