A weekly feature examining news from the biblical viewpoint


Another busy week in the news!

Another busy week in the news! We weren’t able to include quite as many headlines this week, though, because of the in-depth responses required by two of the articles (1 and 3).

1. The Creation Museum and the AP

Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum received quite a bit of attention this week due to an article Louisville-based Dylan Lovan authored for the Associated Press. The article appeared in many media outlets, so there’s a good chance you might have seen it somewhere.

2. AgapePress: $1M Donation Moves Creation Museum Closer to Debt-Free Goal

[Originally accessed from]

After all that misreporting, it’s wonderful to see some accuracy and objectivity! And if you didn’t hear about the donation (for which we’re very thankful!), be sure to read $1 Million Gift Received for Creation Museum!

3. Was Kansas Pro-Creationism?

If you’ve been paying attention to secular media outlets this week, you’ve no doubt read that evolutionists have “triumphed” against creationist forces in the recent school board primaries in Kansas. Misleading headlines such as “Evolution Wins In Kansas” have contributed to the false impression that the ballot presented voters with an alternative between creation and evolution.

4. Vestigial Genes?

According to this article, geneticists have discovered a new category of pseudogenes—genes that seem to serve no purpose. The concept of pseudogenes isn’t new; evolutionists have alleged for years that some genes are simply useless legacies of evolution and, therefore, proof for common descent.
