America just converted from traditional, old fashioned analog to modern digital TV. It was a complicated process that required tremendous cooperation in all segments of society. Read more…
I’m not and astronomer. I’m not even much of a stargazer. I simply haven’t had the opportunity since I’ve lived in or near cities all my life, and about the only stars one can see at night are blinking neon. So frankly, I kind of ignored the whole story of the Magi following the Star of Bethlehem to the baby Jesus. “OK,” I said to myself, “so it was a shooting star.” …and that was that.
But in truth that wasn’t that. There is much more to the Star of Bethlehem, and thank God for Rick Larson who demonstrated that in the “Star of Bethlehem” movie. It’s a must see for everyone! Read more…
While exploring the Big Salmon River on the Fundy Trail, I came upon the following beach:
On that beach I found the following two rock formations within about 10 feet of the water’s edge:
As I examined the rock formations, I wondered how they got there. Did they get there because
A) The water washed them up and left them there?
B) Some wild animal came and stacked them there?
C) Some human came and stacked them there?
Then I asked myself, “I wonder how long have they been here?”
D) Days or weeks?
E) Months or years?
F) Decades or centuries?
After pondering the situation and analyzing it in great detail, I decided that some human probably stacked them there days or weeks ago.
I suspect that you, the reader, will come to the same conclusion. After all, options A and B are so improbable as to be impossible, and options E and F are highly improbable because storms and spring floods would surely topple the rocks.
“Now,” I thought to myself, “If rocks can’t even form into two simple stacks by chance, how logical is it to think that dirt will somehow acquire life – which is incredibly complex – by chance, and also be stable enough for millions of years to accomplish it? I wouldn’t bet my life on it.”
Then I thought of all those Darwinian evolutionists who are betting their eternal lives on just such silliness, and my heart broke.
The discovery of DNA revolutionized biology. There was a recent spate of articles talking about the significance of “junk” DNA. You might be interested in hearing about it.
According to some scientists only about 20% of our DNA contains meaningful genetic information; the rest is “junk.” We know “junk” DNA exists, but don’t exactly know why. Therefore many argue that the existence of this “junk” DNA proves the validity of random evolutionary theory. The argument goes something as follows: Read more…
