BABY BIRD FOSSIL UPSETS EVOLUTIONISTS’ APPLECART—AGAIN

BABY BIRD FOSSIL UPSETS EVOLUTIONISTS’ APPLECART—AGAIN

According to a new article at Science Daily, the fossil of a prehistoric baby bird is causing scientists to reevaluate their previous thoughts on evolution.

Once again, evolutionists are having to revise their story, after this newly analyzed ‘early baby bird’ fossil was analyzed in greater detail recently, using the latest state-of-the-art technology. It is very interesting that they admit “this particular group of avians may have been more diverse than previously thought”. Also, one of the study’s co-authors added: “It is amazing to realize how many of the features we see among living birds had already been developed more than 100 million years ago”. read more

RABBI MISREPRESENTS BIBLE ON ABORTION

RABBI MISREPRESENTS BIBLE ON ABORTION

The purpose of this article, and indeed this website, is not to get involved in any partisan politics, but to advocate for God’s Word, the Bible. As the late Billy Graham said late in life, he wished he’d stayed out of politics. Yet, the Bible is very “useful for . . . correction” (2 Tim 3:16 NIV).

In an opinion column in the Tallahassee Democrat on March 6, 2018, Rabbi Jack Romberg says that “Jewish tradition . . . considers a fetus a life, but not equivalent to a fully formed human life”. That may be true about Jewish tradition. He should know, being a Rabbi. But, he unfortunately goes on to make a false statement about the Bible. He claims “This is based on Exodus 21:22 through 25, which makes clear the loss of a fetus by human misconduct is not punished the same way as murder”. Since the Rabbi probably uses the TANAKH, which is a Jewish translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, or Old Testament, let’s quote these verses from there: read more

POOL OF SILOAM DISCOVERED IN 2004 CONFIRMS JOHN 9:7

POOL OF SILOAM DISCOVERED IN 2004 CONFIRMS JOHN 9:7

Until 2004, the pool and church built by Byzantine empress Eudocia to commemorate the site was thought by some Bible believers to have likely been the Pool of Siloam. In fact, many “experts” doubted the existence of the Pool of Siloam, period. Many of these “experts” also doubted the authenticity of the entire gospel of John, thinking that it was written long after the Apostle John had died, and was largely a book of legend and fiction.

Pool of Siloam steps
In 2004, the stepped remains of the ancient Siloam Pool, long thought to be located elsewhere, were uncovered near the City of David. According to the Gospel of John, it was at this sacred Christian site that Jesus healed the blind man.

Archaeological discoveries are forcing more and more skeptics to rethink their positions. The actual, genuine Pool of Siloam that was in use in Jesus day was accidently discovered in 2004. During construction work to repair a large water pipe south of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, at the southern end of ridge known as the City of David, archaeologists began to uncover what we now know is the Pool of Siloam. Numismatic evidence—coins from the late Hasmonean period (c 90 BCE) and from the Jewish revolt (c 63 CE)—prove that this pool was in use in Jesus’ day. This and other evidence has convinced archaeologists beyond any doubt that this was indeed the Pool of Siloam in John 9. read more

The Universe & God: Science As Evidence

The Universe & God: Science As Evidence

In our recent article about the expansion of the universe, we showed how some basic scientific facts about the universe point to the existence of God. Today, we will examine even more scientific concepts about the universe and see how they relate to the Creator.

Existence of Elements Essential for Life

When two helium nuclei collide, they fuse together and produce the fleeting, unstable beryllium. An additional collision with a single helium nucleus, and carbon is created.

“For the Lord is God, and he created the heavens and earth and put everything in place. He made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos. ‘I am the Lord,’ he says, ‘and there is no other.'” (Isaiah 45:18 NLT) read more

DISCOVERY IN GULF OF MEXICO HELPS SUPPORT BIBLE FLOOD

DISCOVERY IN GULF OF MEXICO HELPS SUPPORT BIBLE FLOOD

Archaeologists have discovered a 7,000-year-old burial site in the Gulf of Mexico after a tip from a recreational diver who found human remains at the site in 2016. More details can be read in this article.

The ancient burial site discovered off the southwest Florida coast lends credence to what we know from the Bible about the flood in Genesis 6-8. The article states that “sea levels were much lower during that time”, and then goes on to say that “sea levels rose”. How does this harmonize with the Biblical account of the global flood? read more

NEWLY RECEIVED RADIO WAVES EVIDENCE OF GENESIS 1:1

NEWLY RECEIVED RADIO WAVES EVIDENCE OF GENESIS 1:1

An article in USA Today entitled “Signal received from far reaches of early universe” reports:

An artist’s rendering shows how the first stars might have looked N.R. FULLER/NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

For the first time, astronomers have detected a signal from stars emerging in the early universe some 14 billion years ago.

They may also have detected mysterious “dark matter” at work.

Using a radio antenna not much bigger than a refrigerator, astronomers discovered that primordial suns began to shine about 180 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was created. read more

CLAY SEAL OF ISAIAH THE PROPHET APPARENTLY FOUND

CLAY SEAL OF ISAIAH THE PROPHET APPARENTLY FOUND

For the first time, archaeological evidence (a seal impression) of Isaiah has been discovered, it seems. See the article by Michelle Starr published on February 23, 2018. The book of Isaiah is quoted more often than any other prophetic Old Testament book, and is second only to Psalms in overall New Testament quotes:

The Biblical figure Isaiah who prophesied the coming of the Messiah may have been an actual real person.

Researchers have found an ancient clay seal from around the time he was reportedly alive, marked with his name. read more

HOW DO WE KNOW MARK ENDS AT 16:8, AND NOT 16:20?

HOW DO WE KNOW MARK ENDS AT 16:8, AND NOT 16:20?

snake handler
Modern day snake handlers derive their practice from Mark 16:17-18

How do we know Mark 16 ends at verse 8 and not 20? The two best available Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus do not have either the usual 12 verse ending or the shorter ending. Neither does manuscript 304, the Sinaitic Old Syriac, some manuscripts of the Sahadic Coptic version, manuscripts of the Armenian translation, and some versions of the Georgian translation. It is significant that it does not appear in any manuscript prior to the fifth century. This passage is included in a number of other, later manuscripts, but with critical marks such as asterisks or obeli (marks to indicate that a passage is spurious, doubtful or corrupt), which tell us that the scribe knew of the questionable nature of these verses. The shorter ending is found in some less important manuscripts. In some other manuscripts, this shorter ending is combined with the longer ending. Codex W, an important early Greek manuscript, adds an entire paragraph between verses 14 and 15. All of this together is strong proof that Mark 16:9-20 was not originally part of Mark’s Gospel. Bible scholar and translator Jerome, around 400 CE, said “Almost all the Greek codices (are) without this passage”. read more

“EVOLUTION” DID NOT INTERVENE ON ‘MONSTER’ PENGUINS

“EVOLUTION” DID NOT INTERVENE ON ‘MONSTER’ PENGUINS

Let’s take a look at an article published on December 13, 2017 entitled “Evolution intervened on ‘monster’ penguins” in USA Today:

“Talk about your big bird. Scientists on Tuesday announced the discovery of a new species of an ancient giant penguin, one that was nearly 6 feet tall and weighed about 220 pounds, roughly the same height and size as an average man.

Fossilized remains of the extinct penguin were discovered in the Otago region on New Zealand’s South Island. The new species is named Kumimanu biceae: In the Maori language of New Zealand, Kumi means “monster,” and manu is the word for “bird.” read more

LEARN ONE THING FROM BILLY GRAHAM’S LIFE CONFESSION

LEARN ONE THING FROM BILLY GRAHAM’S LIFE CONFESSION

Prominent preacher Billy Graham confessed his major life regret in an interview some years back. You would think that anyone who had personally known and associated with so many prominent people for so long, including 12 U.S. Presidents, would be proud of such hobnobbing with the political “stars” of the world. But guess what he confessed?
