Young Universe

Comets cannot be more than a few thousand years old or they would all have disintegrated.

Fast Facts

  • Spiral galaxies rotate much too quickly for an old universe. They would be twisted beyond recognition if they were really as old as secular astronomers claim.
  • The magnetic fields of planets and moons in our solar system are consistent with their age of a few thousand years, but are much too strong for an age of billions of years.
  • The debris shed by disintegrating comets is what causes meteor showers. Since earth intersects such a debris field once each year, most meteor showers are annual.

Who are in the image of God?

 

“It is commonly taught that all human beings bear the image of God. Yet that would mean that man by nature is like God, which Scripture says he is not. Man certainly was like God when the Almighty created him. But he became like the devil when he listened to him. The ones who bear God’s image are those who are in God’s Image. Christ is the Image of God, and only those who are in Him are like Him, and thus like God. Although these imagebearers have an evil nature, God is the Father of their spirit, and in their spirit they look like their Father.” From article that can be read in full below:

God of predation

 

Many people, even Christians think vegetarianism or veganism is the way to live. They have the moral “high ground.” Not so!  In Genesis 9:3 God states,” Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” Psalm 104 also relates how God provides grass for the grazers, cereals for man and meat (other animals and /or fruit) for the predators! He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;” and “The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.”(v 14). He even feeds the whales, “leviathan” who plays in the ocean (vv26-27). All life depends on his provision.  Paul addresses “food fads” in Romans 14 where he states that the brother who eats no meat is weaker but nevertheless is not to be despised but accepted because both his scruples and your freedom to eat what you want, are based on your respective weak and stronger faith, but you are brothers!

Irreducible Complexity

Irreducible Complexity

Some details surrounding human conception that MUST happen and thus were programmed by God and CANNOT have ever gone through an evolutionary process.

For the conception of a baby these details are necessary:

  • Sperm moved along by Fallopian Tube muscles NOT their tails (flagellae).
  • Without capacitation the sperm can’t fertilize egg.
  • Cilia (hairs on the walls of cells of tubes) move the egg by waves (like wind on a wheatfield).
  • Sperm releases acrosomal contents to dissolve the sticky coating around the egg and another enzyme dissolves the outer egg coat.
  • After fertilisation granules inside the membrane thicken it to stop the rest of the sperms.
  • Human chorionic gonadotrophin from the syncitiotrophoblast (one massive jelly-like cell around the egg) penetrates the uterus to start formation of placenta.
  • After birth when the raw womb lining bleeds where placenta was attached sphincters close the ends of the uterine arteries and oxytocin from suckling breast  stop mother bleeding to death.

Communion with God (32)

Other attributes of God manifest supremely in Christ.

Wisdom

Creation, providence and God’s governing the world exhibit his wisdom. “How manifold are his works in wisdom has he made them all; the earth is full of his riches,” Ps. 104:24. So in his providence, his supporting and guidance of all things; for all these things “come
forth from the LORD of hosts, who is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working,” Isa. 28:29. His law also is for ever to be admired, for the excellency of the wisdom therein, Deut. 4: 7, 8. But yet there is that which Paul is astonished at, and wherein God will for ever be exalted, which he calls, “The depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God,” Rom. 11:33; — that is only hid in and revealed by Christ. Hence, as he is said to be “the wisdom of God,” and Christ to be “made unto us wisdom;” and a “mystery; even the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the world was; which none of the princes of this world knew,” In Eph. 3:10, it is called, “The manifold wisdom of God;” and to discover this wisdom angels only learn it by observing the building of God’s church.

The recovery of Eden, nay the surpassing glory of the new creation, that was lodged in Christ’s bosom from eternity, to recover things to such an estate as shall be exceedingly to the advantage of his glory, infinitely above what at first appeared, and for the putting of sinners into inconceivably a better condition than they were in before the entrance of sin.
“This is a great mystery,” Eph. 5:32, says the apostle; great wisdom lies herein.

Was Darwin right?

 Evolutionary tree.

Excerpt from letter by Terry Mortensen (Answers in Genesis):

“So the fossil record falsifies the theory of evolution. But it confirms the teaching of Genesis 1—that God created different kinds of plants and animals and mankind with the ability to produce enormous variety within each kind, but not the ability to change one kind of creature into a different kind (e.g., a fish into an amphibian, a reptile into a bird or mammal, a dog into a horse or cat, or an ape into a man). In fact, in the article above, Gould says that there are two characteristics of the fossil record: abrupt appearance and stasis. That is, the first time a creature appears in the lowest rock layer it is fully formed and fully recognizable. As we come up through the rock layers we see variation within each kind of creature but they remain the same kind of creature (i.e., they may have longer or shorter legs than predecessors, or longer or shorter snouts, etc., but no new and different body parts). But “abrupt appearance and stasis” is just another way of saying “creation after their kind,” as Genesis 1 teaches.

Darwin was really only destroying a straw-man when he showed that species change, because Bible-believers in his day and creation scientists today had/have good scientific evidence that a created “kind” in Genesis 1 is not the same as the modern  “species” but rather is equivalent to “genus” or more often “family.” So, creationists don’t believe in the “fixity of the species”. While he showed that species change, he did not show that (much less how) all plants and animals and man are descended from a common ancestor. And no evolutionist since him has presented credible evidence (that can stand up to careful scrutiny by well-informed critics) to show that it happened, as Gish and Werner’s work above demonstrates.”

Why Do the Birds Sing?

The animals instinctively praise and glorify their maker, all in their own unique way.

Psalm 148

“Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts. Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens. Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created. He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass. Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word: Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars: 10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl: 11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth: 12 Both…

Uniformitarianism

Answers in Genesis expound this well too.

Young Calvinists

One theory that has gained much credence in the past number of years is called Uniformitarianism. This belief states that world as we know it today has always been that way and will always function in the ways that we think it should. Although its popularity has increased in the last number of years, along with the related theory of evolution, it existed in Biblical times:

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers walking after their own lusts, and saying where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” (II 3:3,4).

This, however, is not the case. Let’s look at the weather, for instance. In the beginning, God gave the Garden of Eden a moderate climate with none of the wild fluctuations in temperature we sometimes hear about. There…
