What is Science Like?

Science is like a tiny stone in a stream. The stone tumbles over and over and never gets anywhere because it’s too heavy to be moved by the currents. Science claims to have answers to so many great mysteries about the universe. But, it can’t seem to grasp the significance of human existence. (You read the first book of the Bible and you’ve got it!) It’s so gullible as to think that life can somehow create itself by a magical process it calls, “evolution”. (Which, in reality is nothing more than lame, ‘spontaneous generation’.) It capitalizes on the Designer’s wonderfully engineered feature of his living creatures called, “adaptability”  and its proponents use such a glorious thing and turn it into a creator itself  in this bizarre fantasy. What does the Creator teach us about people who try to tell us that there is no God, or Creator? “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.” When the first 2 humans were created, they were told by their Creator to not eat, “from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. Nowadays, what are the most popular shows on TV?  Shows that tell stories of good and evil? We are obsessed with that kind of…

More to Space then Meets the Eye

Driving home from work can be a real treat during this time of the year. As the days get shorter and now with Daylight Savings Time in effect, five o’clock in the afternoon means sunset. As we loose sight of the sun down low on the horizon the clouds can become a canvas for the most beautiful paintings you’ll ever get to see. During the day we see the full spectrum light coming from the sun. But, as the sun sets only the reds and pink part of the spectrum come across to light the bottoms of clouds that are closer to the horizon. The hues and tones can be truely amazing! The skies are truly painted for our pleasure and enjoyment. When our Creator designed the atmosphere and the sun, He did so with great care so that it not only supports us, but brings us enjoyment and happiness. Wayne Hollyoak

The Anesthetist

A guy stands over you and places a gas mask over your mouth and nose. He asks you the count backwards from 100. so you do and next thing you know, the sound of the valve in the mask starts thundering in your brain louder and louder until….. Well, you really can’t remember. But, you are looking around the recovery room and the operation is over. You’re amazed and can’t even tell that anything has happened to you. The appendix is there in a little container of water or something and no longer a threat to your life. Sometimes you have to be put to sleep for a while so you can be cut open and have things taken out. One day the Creator decided to anesthetise the first man he made so that He could open up his chest and remove one of his ribs. The rib was then used to clone a new person that could complement the first man. This new person was made a little different though. Instead of having an x and a y chromosome, the x was paired with another x chromosome and the result was a woman. Anesthesia can be a useful tool to…

Solving the Riddle of Matter

The most powerful and the most despised assumption you can start with in any study of the universe we live in, is “intelligent design”. What do I mean by that? Well, the universe was a well thought out environment to set the stage for the Creator’s crowning achievement- MAN! Man is unique among all of God’s known creation in that man is also creative. In fact, man is so creative that he will even create imaginitive ways to convince the world that the Creator doesn’t exist so that he can feel better about his selfishness and pride. The Creator designed man in His own image or His appearence. This truth would be manifested when He would enter into our world as a very ordinary looking man born to a virgin young woman. Jesus came and set the world on an entirely different course through His life and teaching. The Creator had come to help his creative creation return to reality. The reality that He designed the universe and everything in it and He was writing a new agreement between Himself and us. A contract signed with His own blood! We no longer were doomed to answer for our rebellion with…

How Great was the Flood?

Could it be argued that there are quite a few fossils out there? Of course! There are even quite a few areas that have large dinosaurs heaped together as if were deposited there by very powerful forces. Tsunami perhaps, or washed away by extreme flooding and entombed in earth and mud. I can assure that the flood of Noah was of “Biblical proportions” and that there is no reason to assume that it was a completely “natural” event. There also was likely global deforestation and a following ice-age as a result. Animal remains rarely last longer than 20 years when exposed to the elements. Theiy must be buried not long after their death in order to be preserved in any way. The earth is an immense flood zone with layers upon layers of sediment and sedimentary rock. Was it all produced by a singe great flood (and associated multitude of tsunamis)? The Bible states that the “fountains of the great deep” were opened. Was this a reference to volcanic activity or rupture of many aquifers or both? The main thing I want to express is that the flood of Noah’s time was a massive and devestating ecological disaster with worldwide…
