We have access to all the major science journals and newspapers, so we are likely to be well aware of the latest pro-evolution propaganda. AiG will try to post responses as quickly as possible, but only after we have fully researched the topic. Often the media put a pro-evolutionary slant on the data that is simply not warranted by the actual evidence, so it is important to check the original source. We appreciate your patience if this takes a little time, as we hope you realize that this is better than rushing to post a poorly informed “knee-jerk” reaction. Please continue to check our home page over the following few days.
Christians are often unnecessarily anxious over the most recent claim that “proves” evolution, or “disproves” the Bible. Please remember that attacks on God’s written Word have been going on for thousands of years. During this time, the theories of men have changed and the attacks have been thrown out, but the Bible remains unchanged and infallible.
We would recommend reading the following articles to get the “big picture”:
Again, please note that if a major media outlet (e.g., New York Times, Google.com, Associated Press, Fox News, CNN, etc.) posts an article related to faith/science, we are probably already aware of it through the various news sources we subscribe to. We say that in order to save you the effort of emailing media stories from the major news sources to us (this also helps reduce the volume of email we receive from friends of the ministry on a daily basis). If you wish to submit a media item, enter the web address of the page where this media item can be found, list the important excerpts in the “Pertinent excerpts” field, and any additional information in the “Comments or explanation” field.
Because Answers in Genesis is a non-denominational ministry reaching out to multitudes of churches and various denominations, we do not have an official position on many important doctrinal issues such as modes of baptism, eschatology, signs and wonders, tongues, the Sabbath, etc. We refrain from taking an official ministry position because clarification on these issues is not the thrust of this ministry. The main focus of Answers in Genesis must be the authority of the 66 books of the Bible, especially about creation by the Triune God as reported plainly in Genesis.
Sound answers to questions in the realm of operational science can be found in any standard encyclopedia or science textbook.
Sometimes a particular topic is not specifically covered on our site, but other articles will detail general principles that apply, providing a basis for you to evaluate the “evidence” in question. For example, a question on the formation of Stone Mountain in Georgia (USA) would be addressed generally in the articles on granite formation listed in the Get Answers: Geology page.
It is important to realize that facts do not speak for themselves, but are always interpreted within a framework, and the chosen framework depends on the starting assumptions/biases. One of the main thrusts of AiG is to aid people in “thinking Biblically” and interpreting evidence in light of the principles found in God’s Word (see “Creation: Where’s the Proof?”).
