The strategy of using design arguments which are divorced from Scripture was tried once before, in the early 19th century, and it failed to convert people or to overcome the growing skepticism in the once-Christian cultures of Britain and America. In our evangelism we need to present design arguments and the Scriptures at the same time.
Science is both a fabulous body of knowledge and a fantastic method of investigation. However, scientific discoveries are subject to interpretation. Evolutionary interpretation of numerous datasets point to an earth that is millions or even billions of years old. Is this true? Has the universe truly existed for millions or even billions of years? Or is the earth young as the Bible claims?
It is difficult to understand how anyone can believe that the nervous system, particularly the brain, could have been produced by evolutionary randomness and selection. Its complexity, which far surpasses anything produced by man, is nothing short of a miracle.
Another marvelous reflection of creation is the astonishing process of embryonic development, including the way a human being develops in his or her mother’s womb. Evolutionists say that the so-called “gill slits, yolk sac, and tail” are useless evolutionary leftovers (vestiges) that virtually “prove” we evolved from fish, reptiles, and apes. How does a creationist respond? Does this represent the stages of evolution, or is there another explanation?
Gecko feet, bat wings, and horse leg bones are among many structures that defy evolution. Design implies a Designer, and life certainly looks designed!
Without millions of years, evolution completely falls apart. Here are just some of many credible evidences from science that support a young earth.
If your travels take you to breathtaking waterfalls or geological wonders, get equipped to combat the indoctrination of millions of years with truth before you go!
Studies have shown that essentially all 180 organs once listed as evolutionary vestiges have significant functions in human beings.
The apparent redundancy of the genetic code has long been called codon “degeneracy”—evidence that the present genetic code is an evolutionary product.
Did you ever wonder how instincts are passed down from mothers to their offspring?
We find plenty of evidence for the earth’s youth—in its geology, biology, paleontology, and even astronomy.
It is often challenging to determine the source of specific similarities and differences between animals, but one thing is clear: there is awe-inspiring beauty and variety apparent in living things.
Our Creator placed enough discontinuity in just the right places, showing us that no natural process could have generated such a diverse creation.
Both bats and dolphins (a type of toothed whale) are known for their abilities to “echolocate,” or use sonar to capture prey.
A recently discovered fossil squid is evidence of rapid burial in a watery catastrophe.
The discovery of the jagged peaks under Antarctica’s ice surprised scientists.
Evolutionists are having a difficult time deciding which animal came first: the sea sponge, comb jellies, or placozoans.
The word “heavens” in the first verse of Psalm 19 draws our attention immediately upward to the creation of God.
An amazing new human creation is a reminder of one of God’s amazing creations.
It’s another case of science turning to God’s design for inspiration: a study published in Bioinspiration & Biomimetics (which focuses on such natural inspiration) describes how engineers may be taking a cue from dolphins in devising improved sonar systems.
The article “From Fins to Wings” is a clever adaptation of the argument of complexity proposed by both biblical creationists and those in the Intelligent Design movement.
Stanford researchers trained rhesus monkeys to reach for different-colored spots at different speeds (red fast, green slow), then analyzed their success at repeatedly reaching for the red at the same speed, and repeatedly reaching for the green at the same speed.
One of the strongest arguments for a young age of the earth is the amount of salt found in the oceans.
All evidence is actually interpreted, and all scientists actually have the same observations—the same data—available to them in principle.
Artist Steve Cardno feels that the beauty and design in creation all around us is a constant testimony to the handiwork of God.
What appeared to be chaos, on closer examination is another layer of more complex order in this universe God created.
The gifts and talents conferred on each creature, even the tiniest, fit their role in nature and their ecological requirements.
