Book Review: Evolution's Achilles' Heels

Image
Evolution’s Achilles Heels is a gripping, up-to-date (2015), highly illuminating look at the science surrounding evolution versus creation: it is a must-read for every Christian involved in today’s cultural war.While the publication of Scientific Creationism in 1974 revealed the shallowness of the science behind evolution at that time, Evolution’s Achilles Heels brings forty additional years of fresh research into the scientific discussion.It shows that those areas of knowledge most commonly considered strengths of the evolution model are actually its most crippling weaknesses. The topic is of overwhelming practical importance, because while Darwinian evolution has dominated academic circles for 150 years, it has also provided the intellectual justification for the secular humanism dominating the West today, as well as Marxist/Leninist Communism, Nazism, and other forms of socialism. The outcome of evolution’s strictly naturalistic worldview has been linked to racism, slavery, forced…

The Geologic Column: Evidence for Evolution, or Noah’s Flood?

Image
The Standard Geologic Column is a hypothetical model of historical geology based on Charles Lyell’s classic book Principles of Geology, published in 1830.Rejecting the biblical catastrophist worldview (Noah’s Flood), Lyell devised a new interpretive framework that rejected God, rejected the Bible’s record, and presupposed that presently observed processes were “the key to the past.”  Perhaps because rejecting the biblical view also meant rejecting the moral constraints of the Bible, Lyell’s uniformitarian view rapidly became popular.It soon attracted the particular attention of Charles Darwin, who was happy to discover vast periods of time to make his atheistic model of evolution seem plausible. According to the evolutionary view, the earth is at least 4.5 billion years old, and the 6-8 mile thick blanket of sedimentary rock that covers the earth only gradually accumulated over millions of years.Layers in the “geologic column” are dated by certain index fossils, and reveal the evolutio…

Dr. Henry M. Morris, Father of Scientific Creationism

Image
One courageous man doing the difficult thing can at times be enough to change the entire momentum of a battle. Dr. Henry Morris, the father of the Scientific Creation movement, was just such a man. Christian culture in America had long been losing its battle against the secular humanist worldview, but with the publication of The Genesis Flood1, Dr. Morris changed the momentum, and put acolytes of Darwinist evolution on the defense. For an entire century, academic life in America had been dominated by “evolution”, the idea that that life spontaneously generated out of non-life by sheer chance over billions of years of earth history.According to this model, which is the scientific undergirding for secular humanism, a single living cell had somehow arisen, and through a gradual process of reproduction, mutation and survival of the fittest, had given rise to increasingly complex multicellular organisms, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and finally mammals, including man.Despit…

Car Jack: A Short Story For Friends and Family

Image
*****Of all my mother's short stories, this is one of my favorites, and highlights the importance of our view of the world.

Car Jack: a Short City-Drama in the Vernacular It was supposed to be a “lark”, a “caper”; like something from a late night movie.We were just going to “borrow” a car, ride around for a couple of hours, then go back home.But here we are, and here we’re supposed to stay.
We had gone to a shopping center.A strip mall of clothing shops, fast food joints, and a health-food store.Rummy had the idea, and like dopes, we went along with it.He was the one who supplied the joints. He was the one who hyped us up.He should be here with us now, not safely out of it.
We saw this little old lady coming from the mall exit.She wore a dark coat, hat, gloves, and carried a shopping bag.Fumbling through her purse for her keys, she wasn’t paying attention to anything or anybody else as she went up to the old station wagon.She seemed kind of dazed when Rummy poked her in the back and…

Why Christian Fiction?

Image
Why isn’t the Bible enough?Why do we need Christian fiction like Noah’s Boys in the City of Mother Earth?

I have been asked this question more than once, but I think I understand what the questioner is getting at.  It is a grief to see how the fictional entertainment of our decayed culture is so often used to twist and corrupt tender young minds.  Some may even be coarsened by it to the point of depravity, and it takes only moment of exposure to Hollywood to see why!For one thing, the striking images and seductive ideas of the world of entertainment are utterly steeped in secular humanism, a wrong view of the world that presupposes there is no God.Viewers are constantly exposed to every form of vice and immorality, and this exposure cannot help but eventually harden or even deaden the conscience.  And it is not just movies or television: best-selling novels can do much the same thing.
Wouldn’t it be better, therefore, to avoid fiction and entertainment altogether, and limit oneself exc…

Folded Rock Layers: Evidence of Noah’s Flood?

Image
Motorists driving along Interstate Highway 68 in Maryland are often intrigued by the dramatic curves and folds in the layers of sedimentary rock in Sideling Hill. It is a sight that becomes more puzzling if you reflect on it.  Obviously, because of gravity, sediments always spread out horizontally; but in this cut, the layers of solid rock are not flat or horizontal, but curved up!How could that happen?Stopping at the rest area for information, you soon discover that folded rock layers like that are not rare at all: in fact, the multi-state geologic region to which Sideling Hill belongs is actually characterized by closely folded rock strata1.And numerous examples of even more extreme folded rock are found all around the globe, including in frequently visited parts of the Grand Canyon.2 Investigating further, you are told that according to the accepted historical geologic model (uniformitarianism), the six to nine mile deep layer of sedimentary rock covering the earth formed very slow…
