    It’s being described as “the most comprehensive assault on Christianity in America ever written into law,” “a dangerous threat to our nation,” “the Left’s woke new heresy code,” and “something no American should stand for.” These ominous descriptions refer to the so-called “Equality Act” that was recently introduced to Congress.

  10. Where Are the “COVID Babies”?
    (Published on February 4, 2021—26K+ pageviews)
    Back in March and April, when the first round of lockdowns and quarantines began in the United States, many people were predicting a baby boom nine months later. After all, historically, when an event (such as a major weather calamity) forces people to stay home, babies arrive nine months later. These “COVID babies,” “quarantine babies,” or “‘Rona babies,” as people were calling them, should be here by now . . . but they aren’t. According to one researcher, there’s been no “baby boom.” What’s different this time?

One Consistent Trend: Biblical Authority

Despite the year being 2021, there’s one trend that did not change this year: readers are still interested in articles that uphold the truthfulness of the Bible amid the many challenges. Whether it’s related to the ancient biblical lifespans (#1), the origin of Cain’s wife (#2), what happened to the dinosaurs according to the Bible (#3), or something else, 60% of the top 10 articles from last year address some aspect of biblical authority.

Despite the year being 2021, there’s one trend that did not change this year: readers are still interested in articles that uphold the truthfulness of the Bible amid the many challenges.

This makes sense. Since our founding, Answers in Genesis has addressed many things, including a literal six-day creation, the global flood, the origin of various animal kinds, cosmology, and other topics. But the one common thread that ties everything together relates to biblical authority. Has God spoken in the Bible, and can we trust it? We continue to wholeheartedly affirm that God has spoken and that we can believe everything he has said. Or as Ken Ham recently said in Answers with Ken Ham:

Answers in Genesis takes a strong stand on the age of the earth, a literal creation, and a global flood. But are those really our main things? Well, as I’ve always said, no, they’re not. You see, our focus has always been biblical authority. We emphasize that the Bible’s the authority in all areas—from the very first verse!

Application: Trust God’s Word Whatever the Trends

With as much that’s being shared on social media and in the ever-shortening news cycle, we should remember some things don’t change. God’s Word is always true. Regardless of how many attacks assail the truthfulness of Scripture, it still stands. From Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, we can believe everything God has spoken.
