No Rain?

We have been exploring common misconceptions regarding origins. Several such misconceptions pertain to the time between creation and the global flood. Here we explore the claim that the Bible teaches or at least implies that there was no rain before the flood.

Species or Kinds?

Sometimes a creationist will say “there are no transitional species” or “animals do change, but one species never changes into another.” While I appreciate the sentiment, these claims are not true. In reality, new species do arise over time – a phenomenon we call speciation. Secularists sometimes claim that speciation is proof of Darwinian evolution, but this too is an error. All of these mistakes can be eliminated when we distinguish between species and kinds.

The Problem of Pain

*Guest article by Jason Churchill.
“How could you possibly believe in God with all the suffering in the world?” Have you ever encountered a question like this? I was recently asked a very similar question by my sister as we sat across from one another in her living room. “How could you possibly believe in God with what you are going through?”

Beware of Philosophy!

A colleague of mine once said, “Stay away from philosophy. The Bible says that philosophy is bad and that we should avoid it.” But does the Bible really say that? What exactly is philosophy, and what does the Bible really say about it?

The Second Law of Thermodynamics

“My back hurts a lot more than it did when I was younger. Well, I guess that’s the second law of thermodynamics at work.” Actually, it isn’t. Misconceptions of the second law of thermodynamics abound, even within the creationist community. Such misconceptions include the idea that the second law (1) is the tendency of any ordered system to go to disorder, (2) is the same as the curse associated with Adam’s sin, or at least began at the fall, (3) disallows order spontaneously arising from disorder, and (4) would obviously make Darwinian evolution impossible. None of these are true. But the second law is relevant to origins and can be powerful when used properly. To understand the second law, we need some background information in the field of thermodynamics.

What Does “Day” Mean?

Todd and Craig had been exploring and mapping the wilderness for some time when they decided to split up to cover more ground. “You head to the north, and I will explore the south,” said Todd. “We’ll meet back at the campsite in two days.” Craig gave an affirmative nod and headed north. After two days of successful exploration, Todd returned to the campsite on schedule. But Craig was nowhere to be found. Perhaps he had been delayed.

Evolutionist Math

You have probably heard of evolutionary biologists – those who study biology from the perspective of Darwinism. And you have probably heard of evolutionary geologists, or evolutionary astronomers – those who study their respective disciplines from secular assumptions of origins. But have you ever heard of evolutionary mathematics? What would that even mean?
