DNA – Designed, Not Accidental

Over the many years since I graduated from medical school, the knowledge of how the complex and unique DNA molecule functions in the cell has increased greatly.  Much of what is now basic knowledge of molecular genetics was only touched on when I was in high school and medical school.  The human genome had not yet been fully decoded.  The more I learn about this amazing molecule, the more convinced I am of the impossibility that it evolved by random chance under the guiding hand of natural selection.

HOW “PROVING” ONE OF DARWIN’S THEORIES ACTUALLY DISCREDITS THE THEORY

At this difficult time, a laugh is sorely needed, and one has been provided for us by evolutionary scientists at Cambridge University. The headlines are breathless and triumphant: One of Darwin’s evolution theories finally proved by Cambridge researcher (Phys Org)[1] Scientists ‘prove Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory’ (ITV)[2] One of Darwin’s Evolutionary Theories Has Been Proved by Scientists: ‘We Are Standing on the Shoulders of Giants’ (Newsweek)[3]

DOES JESUS MISQUOTE THE OLD TESTAMENT? Creation Ministries International (CMI) Undermines Inerrancy Again

It is late in the year for a new, winning entrant into the “Most Ironic Statement of the Year” contest, but Creation Ministries International (CMI) duo of Lita Cosner and Robert Carter seem to have done it; it is difficult to imagine that anything in the last few days of 2019 will top this one: No one should be ridiculed for not being able to do good textual analysis—unless they claim to be doing good textual analysis.[1] We …

SALVATION BY GRACE ALONE THROUGH FAITH ALONE: What about James 2:24?

Prima facie, James 2:24 seems to say that works are needed for salvation. However, careful exegesis of the original Greek text shows that James is not, in fact, saying “that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only,” but that a man is justified by acts of commitment, and not by intellectual belief alone.

THE THREE-HEADED MONSTER AND THE EVANGELICAL BETRAYAL OF THE BIBLE: Exposing the Major Weapons Levied Against the Trustworthiness of the Bible

The Bible has come under attack by liberal scholars using three main weapons: historical criticism, textual criticism, and Darwinism. The acceptance by evangelical scholars of the liberal paradigm assumptions has led to an erosion of belief in inerrancy and undermines the case for Christianity.

IS THE BYZANTINE TEXT THE RESULT OF “A LONG PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT AND STANDARDIZATION”? An Examination of Klaus Wachtel’s Text Critical Model

For a long time, that explanation was that the Byzantine text was a recension (i.e. a deliberately edited and altered version of the original New Testament)

IS CREATIONISM SUPPORT DROPPING? A Response to USA Today and a Warning to Creationists

Krattenmaker’s belief that a recent Gallup poll proves Americans are turning against young earth creationism is premature. He did not look at long-term data. Nevertheless, the poll results are significant for Christians. A wrong view of origins is a symptom of the real problem, erosion of belief in inerrancy.

PROBABILITY AND THE ORIGIN OF LIFE

Evolution is fundamentally dependent on chance. The probability of the simplest theoretical cell forming by chance is beyond the Universal Probability Bound, the absolute limit beyond which an event becomes impossible. Random chance, then, cannot explain the origin of life.

OLIVER AND HARDY AND HAHN: Debunking Greg Hahn’s Attempt to Salvage His Attack on Complementarianism

Hahn’s conceit that “the question will bring down complementarianism” is a pipe-dream, without any hope of succeeding with anyone who thinks at all about the issue; his approach is even weaker than the usual egalitarian gambits.

DO “VIOLENT NAMES” PROVE ANIMAL DEATH PRIOR TO THE FALL?

Old-earth creationists say that the Hebrew names of some carnivores show that animals ate one another before the Fall. But the Hebrew words for violence, death, and predation may actually have been coined after the Fall based on the names of the animals that were now seen doing such actions.

MARK 1:2 REVISITED: A Response to James Patrick Holding

The lesson from this story ought to be clear: A wrong answer does not become right simply by being reasserted more loudly and more stridently.
