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. Most people just assume evolution can be studied scientifically—but not creation. According to a slogan popular these days, “Evolution is science, and creation is religion.” Is it really possible to talk honestly and fairly about scientific evidence of creation?
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?
Gecko feet, bat wings, and horse leg bones are among many structures that defy evolution. Design implies a Designer, and life certainly looks designed!
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!
Without millions of years, evolution completely falls apart. Here are just some of many credible evidences from science that support a young earth.
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.
Both bats and dolphins (a type of toothed whale) are known for their abilities to “echolocate,” or use sonar to capture prey. This capability, fascinating in its own right, shows that creationists can explain some things that evolutionists cannot.
A recently discovered fossil squid is evidence of rapid burial in a watery catastrophe.
Evolutionists are having a difficult time deciding which animal came first: the sea sponge, comb jellies, or placozoans.
The discovery of the jagged peaks under Antarctica’s ice surprised scientists.
An amazing new human creation is a reminder of one of God’s amazing creations.
Researchers at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Germany have made “overwhelming” discoveries that, according to the researchers, show that worm nervous systems and the human brain are distant cousins.
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.
“As an ID promoter, I read your critique of Dr. Dembski with great interest...”
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.
Dr Andy McIntosh is a Reader (second-highest teaching/research rank in UK university hierarchy) in Combustion Theory at Leeds University, UK with a background in aerodynamics.
The gifts and talents conferred on each creature, even the tiniest, fit their role in nature and their ecological requirements.
The evidence from Scripture is by far the best evidence for creation.
This article discusses a facinating, previously unknown ability of turtles to sense magnetic fields.
If you visit that grandiose canyonland, don’t rush off too quickly! Also visit a nearby testimony of God’s caring involvement in our world, the ‘pygmy forest’.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
