Tell us where you're from!

Welcome to the live stream!

Thank you for watching!

Jobs at Twelve Stones: www.tschristianacademy.org/jobs

We love Twelve Stones! So thankful for the education and Biblical worldview training our kids are receiving!

I agree we use AIG curriculum in children's church at Whitewell NI and it's meaty alright !!!!❤️

Would love to have a online option for homeschoolers!

Awesome <3 So encouraging to see 😀 A little envious I couldn't have gone to one myself 📖 Australia could do with at least one of those 🏘

Watching from Bondo in Kenya

Would love to see an online version!

I told my mom yesterday that AiG would start a school and I want to teach there when it opens!

Keep up the good work!

How many colors were on the rainbow on the bulletin board?

Will it be tied in online for homeschooling?

Is there a homeschool curriculum available?

We need this school all over the country!

Viewing from Maryland

woo hoo!!!👍🏻💕

I agree with what another person posted, you need to get online courses for people who can't go there and would home school.

Melvin, Michigan.

Hello from inverness uk

Will you be opening schools in other areas??

Lets hope and pray they use the full Catholic Bible and not the 66 book Bible. Are they teaching about the Mandela effect/enemies glory?

Checking in from Connecticut. This is a wonderful program. And it comes on just before I head into work. God's providential timing 🙂

Good afternoon from Oklahoma, God bless.

Hello! Praying Blessings on y’all from California.

Evolution or creationism are both theories. It all depends on which side of the fence your own. I personally believe God spoke everything into existence. But that's just opinion, no one really knows how we got here!

Wow! I'm glad I don't have to conjure up enough faith to believe that kind of "fairy tale!"

How often do you broadcast on fb?

Abortion must be abolished. Watching in Kansas.

Amen

Hi from Northern California

How about ‘adaptation’?

Thank you for sharing the truth of God’s Word

Thank you, dear Answers In Genesis

So glad I caught this live stream ! Hi from Arkansas ! 👋

we are coming back up for our vacation to the creation museum and the ark. We had such a great time last year and learned so much. See yall soon

Thanks y’all!

Hey AVery!

Compton checking in...always relevant and on the front lines.

Physicians who murder babies in the womb, violate the oath to “do no harm”, Betraying the Hippocratic oath, trading it for the Hypocritic oath. The full Hippocratic oath actually explicitly declares that they would not do abortions. Abortion must be abolished.

Freewill is simple, you can do whatever you want. Your actions have consequences. Part two is not negotiablie.

Hello from Taiwan

Flightless....doesn’t that mean they LOST information??

Uh, that's not nearly enough manpower for a ship that size.

See ya'll next weekend! Can't wait!

Have you ever wondered about the size and shape of the ark?

Comment on Facebook

was there during Holy Week 2019, I am still amazed at what I learned or the possibilities of how things happened.

WangWang Paceño more good website...

The greatest place on earth

Truth is found in Gods holy word.

Comment on Facebook

My favorite part of the ark!!

We will be there next month.

I would love to go see this!

It is worth the trip! I loved it!

Amen!

Lori Ann Colf can’t wait to experience this again.

We'll be back in August!

Amen. Chapter by chapter and verse by verse.

If you haven't made it to the Ark. You are truly missing out. From the different types of Animals to how all of the animals wastes was taken care during those days

So why are the Tigris and Euphrates rivers mentioned in Genesis 2:14 before the flood? Your views are denied by the Bible itself.

Last ice age ended 20,000 years ago. Be the light of the world, not its shame

The new Ararat Ridge Zoo expansion will begin opening progressively starting this summer and fall! 

Youll see animals like kangaroos, sloths, emus, ostriches, zebras, yaks, lemurs, and many other creatures. During the day, there will be special programs with various animals on our new Animal Actors Stage.

That is a great addition to the Ark Encounter. Lemurs are incredible creatures! They love to jump and play around with an incredible amount of energy. They will be so much fun. Sloths are a favorite too. This will be so fun. The stage is a great idea for teaching presentations and fun shows. The Ark Encounter is such a great place to visit!!

Will you be hiring additional zookeepers?

Enjoyed it so much today.❤

Melissa Dash

So many memories

We can’t wait to visit this summer!

We liked the Ark experience.

When will it be complete?

Denise Murrell

One of my favorite parts of the Ark!

Been there and it was amazing!

Amazing..

I have seen this in the ark encounter this week..it was terrific.. we were from ga.

Was it pitch black dark in most of Noah’s ark? Did they cautiously use lantern light to feed and care for animals?

Just visited this past Tuesday I gave this sane picture

Beautiful

My dream trip

Gonna be there in June. So looking forward to seeing it!

Visited the Ark , Kentucky 2018

Its planting time at the Ark Encounter and our sister attraction, the Creation Museum. Tens of thousands of plants are in our greenhouses, ready for planting!

Whats your favorite plant? 🌺 🌿 🌼

Comment on Facebook

Beautiful plants! How many generations did it take to perfect some of the colors you've produced?

You have the most botanical gardens!!!!

My favorites are Geraniums, Marigolds and Lilac bushes.

We will be there this weekend, hoping to see some color.

Mucho thanks

They were changing out part of the landscaping when we were at the Ark recently :

The Role of Epigenetics in Adaptation, Part 1

The following Matters of Fact column by CRS board member Dr. Jean Lightner appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 23, No. 3, May/June 2018.

Q.  Does epigenetics play a role in adaptation? 
A.  Physiologist: YES! Evolutionary biologist: Maybe…. 

Adaptation, in the sense that we will discuss, can be defined as changes which help an organism become better suited to its environment. It is related to one of the foundational characteristics of life: the ability to respond to the environment. Physiological adaptation relies on epigenetics, or modifications that can affect gene expression. This does not change the sequence of DNA, but allows genes to be up or down regulated to suit the needs of the organism (see Lightner, 2013). 

There are several known mechanisms of epigenetic regulation (Figure 1): 

1) histone modification (including acetylation, phosphorylation, and methylation) 

2) cytosine methylation in DNA 

3) various non-coding RNA molecules (miRNA, siRNA, piRNA, and lncRNA) 

These mechanisms vary in the timeframe over which they typically act, allowing for both rapid changes and more stable, long-term changes. 

Scientists had assumed that these types of changes could not be inherited by offspring. The basis for this was largely philosophical: the Modern Synthesis (aka Neo-Darwinism) was predicated on the idea that the environment could not direct phenotypic change. Instead, the source of phenotypic variation is claimed to be from random genetic mutations; natural selection then reduces or eliminates less fit variants. To support the conjecture that epigenetic changes are not heritable, some scientists pointed to the observation that DNA methylation patterns are reset in pathways leading to offspring (i.e., germ cell formation and fertilization). However, it is now recognized that the reset of DNA methylation isn’t always complete, and it is not the only mechanism involved in trans-generational epigenetic inheritance (Morgan et al., 1999; Rassoulzadegan et al., 2006). 

For several decades now, it has been known that epigenetic inheritance can provide a source of heritable variation. However, it is not yet clear how often it does so, and what role it plays in adaptation of populations. Research has increased on this important topic, but much remains to be learned. One recent review article identified a web of potential interactions. It also pointed out that understanding patterns of natural epigenetic variation, the causes of that variation, and the consequences of it are necessary to adequately address the role it may have in adaptation (Richards et al., 2017). 

Factors influencing epigenetic variation 

In some studies it appears that DNA methylation differences are associated with underlying genetic differences. This raises the possibility of genetic control of epigenetic variability. It is also possible that a stable epimutation (heritable epigenetic change) could be inherited along with the underlying genetic sequence, thus causing the correlation. It has also been noted that epigenetic changes can influence genetic variation, specifically as it relates to silencing transposable elements, whose movement can change the sequence of a gene or its promoter (Richards et al., 2017). 

Some epimutations appear to arise stochastically. If these are stable over multiple generations, then natural selection may affect the pattern of variation. It is also known that environmental factors can effect heritable epigenetic changes, but the pattern and extent of this is not well known. Significant work needs to be done across different species, especially wild plants and animals, before reasonable generalizations can be made (Balao et al. 2018; Richards et al., 2017). 

FIGURE 1. A chromosome is made up of DNA coiled around proteins, called histones. There are three basic mechanisms by which epigenetic changes can be made. First, the tail of the histone proteins can undergo several types of modification (A), including phosphorylation (Ph), methylation (Me), and acetylation (Ac), that can affect accessibility of specific genes. Secondly, cytosine residues in DNA can be methylated (red dot) or un– methylated (green dot), the details of which are represented in section B of the figure. This affects gene transcription (the copying of DNA to make mRNA). Finally, various microRNAs (C) can bind mRNA to prevent synthesis into proteins. All of these mechanisms play a role in changing gene expression without affecting the DNA sequence.

Are you one of the over 49,500 views who’s watched “7 Reasons” on YouTube since its release a week ago?

We’ve been so encouraged to read the many online comments, such as this one from YouTube:

"This is THE first time I’ve ever cried (quietly flowing down my cheeks and dripping off my chin kinda tears), regarding the abortion I had 9 years ago. I’ve LITERALLY NEVER felt convicted, not once before…And after watching this.. well, yeh.. I’ve just sat here frowning, now my eyes have dried, and thinking to myself, “Wow, what IS happening to me?!”…I’m a feminist, pro-choice (I thought), equality, love and peace to all kinda person. I guess I better think again................. Mind = blown. Thank you for this video."

Name: Monito del Monte
Status: Thought to be extinct until its rediscovery.
Information: A remarkable, diminutive marsupial thought to have been extinct until one was discovered in a thicket of Chilean bamboo in the southern Andes.
Thought to exist: 55 million years ago.
Reference: http://historysevidenceofdinosaursandmen.weebly.com/living-fossils.html
The fossilised ankle and ear bones are those of Australias earliest known marsupial, Djarthia, a primitive mouse-like creature that lived 55 million years ago. ..a new study in the journal PLoS ONE [http://www.plosone.org/] has confirmed that Djarthia is also a primitive relative of the small marsupial known as the Monito del Monte - or little mountain monkey - from the dense humid forests of Chile and Argentina.
Reference: http://www.create.unsw.edu.au/news/2008-03-25_monito.html
The monito del monte, Spanish for ‘little bush monkey’, named after its monkey-like partially prehensile tail, is a diminutive marsupial native to South America in the Valdivian temperate rain forests of the southern Andes (Chile and Argentina). It is the only extant species in the ancient order of Microbiotheria. ...Genetic studies show that this species retains the most primitive characteristics of its group, and thus is regarded as a “living fossil.”

Your picture makes it seem like the two species shown are found 55 Ma apart even though they are both modern species. Rather, it was the genus Djarthia (whose exact taxonomic position is uncertain) that occurs in the Paleocene, as noted in the PLOS paper you provided. This graphic is either a misunderstanding or diliberate misrepresentation of the references cited. May I ask what formal training in paleontology the admin of this page has had?

We didn't claim the skulls were from a 55 million year old fossil, it is the references that claim Monito del Monte is regarded as a living fossil and thought to exist: 55 million years ago.

Colby, please stop spamming the contrasts. There is no need to post the same link multiple times, Thank you.

I was just doing a one shot on each post. I didnt even think anyone even looked at this page anymore. I apologize.

Looks like the Colbinator deleted his post 😭
