If the idea of creation isn't "scientific", then anyone who creates ANYTHING cannot be considered a scientist. God is the ultimate scientist and used both spiritual and physical laws to create order out of matter. As C.S. Lewis put it, God isn't a magician.
Science isn’t science
The gender politics argument is going the same way as the Creation vs Evolution debate. Despite the fact that there is Science behind those that argue against the "political correctness" of gender politics, there are doctors and other medical professionals who conscientiously object that are losing their jobs over it. They are being bulldozed by an "ideology" I'm surprised how quickly some people forget that not long ago a prevalent common sense would have argued against it. We know more now than ever about the differences between the sexes not just in the composition of cells, but in how up to 1/3 of our genes act differently, and the differences in cognition even from when we are only months old.
Gender politics is rife, obscuring the discussion of sexual orientation further, by placing ideologies under the umbrella of behavioural discrimination, on a par with racial discrimination, instead of placing it under a religious belief system.
Here's two people that have spoken out to clarify the Medical Science: Dr. Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation and Dr. Michelle Cretella.
“Folks, that is the whole enchilada of what we are fighting in the courts today,” Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz warned. “Governments are codifying the homosexual – and now, the transgender – agenda into civil rights, thereby trampling the foundational freedom of religion in this country. Once we accede to the point that sexual behavior is just like race, that would mean that even private businesses who are not seeking government work but just merely want to be left alone would also be forced to directly serve homosexual weddings.”
I hope we see more ministries rise up reminding people of true Science.
Are Richard Dawkins 'aliens' science...
..and atheists aren't really atheists either, they've just made natural things their god.
I just returned home from visiting the Ark Encounter. While viewing a panorama of the aftermath of the flood and the building of the tower of Babel. I overheard a man (skeptically) ask his wife, "Where did all that water go?" I told him that when the mountains rose up, the waters slid down into the lower levels to form our seas and oceans. Many people just think it was a big rain storm, and don't realize that it was a catastrophic event.
Take this to Heart and go out and love those that you cannot love and show Mercy to those that you cannot show Mercy to take this to Heart show Grace to those that you cannot show Grace to because you have done this thing and humbled yourself if anybody slaps you in the cheek let him or let her slap you in the other cheek it is better than going to hell for putting them down
God makes fools of men with the obvious: YOU are the best "proof" of His existence. As one scientist put it, "designed by the Genius of Geniuses". Funny u use the science-process to disclaim God, when science is used to break down His creation and try to understand it's intricacies & the laws contained therein. From the lightning bug, to the propulsion-motor tail on flagellum-bacteria, God's handiwork is EVERYWHERE, put there so man doesn't need to doubt, he only needs to look in-wonder. Evolution can't explain where the first protein-molecule came from, how did it build itself outside of a cell, w/o dying. And the odds for just ONE protein molecule to assemble by-chance is 10 to the 164th power. You have better odds winning the lottery EVERY-DAY of your life. So now u know there's a God. How will u treat Him? You've run from Him ur whole-life, denying Him. Ur not immortal, maybe u should finally open ur eyes. He wants you to meet Him.
God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. -- Gen 1:31a
I learned to dance by watching American Bandstand and Soul Train. Maybe the bees did as well?
At least they don't dance for money honey
Sorry guys evolution does not negate a belief in God or Christianity.. They are compatible let's run with that
I love reading the science behind the articles, but the snide ad-hominem swipe(s) at Twidale in this post, and occasionally through the article, damage your credibility. Let the truth speak for itself, it is powerful enough on its own.
Just look at the twelve apostles on the great ocean road , they have all but disappeard in my life time
Only 7 are left in varies states of erosion and before long we as motorcycle riders will have the GOR back to our selves without the pesky tourist killing us in there big buses and driving on the wrong side of the road I can’t help but Thank God for creation every time I ride down the GOR
Sadly, many people are more than willing to try to reinterpret Christ’s plain meaning in Mark 10 because of their absolute adherence to millions and billions of years. But it undermines the authorit...
The age of the earth is irrelevant to me. And you must know that the genesis is not a detailed account of creation. Therefore one cannot interprete everything in the genesis account literally. The bible said that in the beginning, God created heaven and earth. That means the earth was probably created at about the same time with heaven. When is this beginning when the heaven was created? Was it 4000 BC? were all angels and man created during the first week of 4000 bc? I want to encourage you to lay aside your prejudices & study the bible, you will see that Jesus is not God. several scriptures show that Jesus is subordinate to God. Even Jesus often prayed to YHWH and often referred to HIM as his God. How can GOD be praying? Can God have a God? Jesus told magdalene that her God is his God. John 20:17. Trinity is man-made doctrine. sometimes. i consider it blasphamous. study these scriptures; 1 cor 11:3, 1 cor 15:27,28,Rev 3:12, John 5;30,6:38,7:16-18,7:28-29, 1 john 4:12,john 20:17,Mark 10:18, luke 18:19.
It is the pridefullness of man that makes them seeking time consuming and long winded explanations for what God meant to be simply understood, in the Spirit. Why must man always create burdens where God never intended?
I appreciate this article so much, thank you AIG....
Look at the parallel verse in Matthew 19:4. There is no mention of the beginning *of creation* there, and rightly so, since the passage in both books is *not* about the creation week. Again, no matter how much AiG tries to use Mark 10:6 as some sort of proof text for their interpretation, it appears that Jesus didn’t consider the AiG position important enough to mention clearly and consistently. The consistent thing we actually do find in the Bible is that this passage is about marriage and divorce. The end. The meaning of the passage is spectacularly clear: ever since there were created humans to even consider the concept of marriage between, they were created to be married, and as a husband-wife pair. This is an obvious difference from the entire rest of creation (i.e. the created world.)
If you can only defend your position (a young earth) from passages that aren’t about your position (genealogies or passages about marriage), your position is pretty weak and obviously not a core tenant of the Scriptures.
I'm in 100% agreement with AiG on taking God at His word. At the same time, I find it strange that AiG does not take Jesus at His word when He said all that is required for eternal salvation is to simply believe.
It's a shame to see christians denying the truth of God's word in order to try to make the beliefs of a culture that hates God fit into God's truths. I read comments here and see those claiming to be christians deny God's word is true calling God a lair. They are not followers of Jesus, but pretenders
Read Walt Brown’s “in the beginning”. It’s the best science book you can read. The earth is young.
“God is always right, and if we have to “reinterpret” God’s Word over and over again to mean something other than what it plainly says, then we, as fallible people, are the ones in error.”
A great summary statement, applicable to a wide range of Biblical issues, that are willfully misinterpreted and embraced by so many proclaiming Christians.
Simple mined question. If it's an old Earth? Why did we only become smart in the last 6,000 years? Mechanical transportation in the last 200? Space only 60 years ago? Yet our supposed wisest can't figure out the Pyramids and other ancient civilizations. Our elected officials that graduated from university with an economics degree don't understand how economies work. Nor a heart beat means life.
If you can’t trust the first chapter of the Bible why trust the rest...
What is AiGs textual response to John Sailhammers argument concerning how scripture uses “In the beginning...”? I guess this would be a version if #3
God create Adam as adult, so God might create universe as "adult" too... Not a zero age baby universe
If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
When we say that something happened at the beginning of the year, if does not always mean January 1st.
Some still believe it's old and flat. LOL!
🤔 Things to think about

In Their point 2, they make the case that it is cultic to change the meaning of God’s Word to fit external beliefs that are unbiblical. That is exactly what proponents of Tattooing say!
“You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the Lord.”
Leviticus 19:28 ESV
The Bible doesn’t say some tattooing is forbidden and some is ok. He universally commands you shall NOT TATTOO YOURSELVES!
God’s Word says what it says. The worldly ( which includes every church that condoned Tattooing) ignores God’s Word. They do not speak for Christ. Taking the high view of salvation, one in which a miracle occurs that changes the Will of the saved, I question the salvation of those who justify sin! Sadly that includes most Christian churches.
Answers in Genesis re interpret scripture daily. Claiming evolution and big bang as factual. Your evolutionist christians. Not creationists. God made the world in 6 days. And rested the seventh. It didn't form via big bang. Stop twisting scripture Kenn Hamm and maybe the ark wouldn't have had its road washed out. Teach scripture for scripture. Not your Jesuit order reinterpret
i have driven by a cattle farm...i bet that place stunk bad lol
Just remember, this is all artistic license...
Does everyone see the irony in the ark flooding? Wasn’t it suppose to survive the great flood? Do you not know unless you have flood insurance, you are not covered. Flooding is an “act of God”.
Ask Louisiana residents how they faired after the flood. How about Puerto Rico? Maybe Missouri or even your neighbor, WV. Did you donate money to help those flood victims? Were the dinosaurs ok???
I'm sorry but I just don't think the ark was that comfortable....In fact I doubt that Noah's home was that comfortable.
They were probably better and more comfortable than my quarters on board the USS Abraham Lincoln! 😂
I doubt it.
It doesn’t seem they would’ve been that comfortable.
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.
