Evolutionary biologist and famous atheist author Richard Dawkins says the stroke he suffered earlier this year has not changed his belief that nothing comes after death.
Dawkins said during an interview with BBC that he is doing fine physically following a stroke he suffered in February, which forced him to cancel a number public appearances, including Washington D.C.'s "Reason Rally" earlier in June.
When asked whether the stroke has caused him to reconsider some of his views on death and life, The God Delusion author said, "Well, nothing lies beyond. I consider mortality from time to time, I suspect we all do, but certainly nothing lies beyond." more >>
Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham says ongoing failures in the scientific community to find alien life, or an Earth-like planet likely to support life, backs the view that the Earth is unique in the universe.
"For years, researchers, who cling to a belief that life must have evolved elsewhere in the universe, have looked for extraterrestrial life. Recently, much of this research has been focused on trying to find 'Earth 2.0,' a planet orbiting a distant star (called an exoplanet) that has similar qualities to Earth. But such a planet remains elusive," Ham wrote on his Answers in Genesis blog on Monday.
He linked to an article earlier in May in Tech Times which said that despite NASA telescope Kepler identifying 1,284 new exoplanets, not a single one appears to be close enough to Earth to support hopes for discovering alien life. more >>
WASHINGTON — The daughter of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, is calling on Christians to evangelize, warning that America is experiencing the last stages of God's judgment before the end of human history.
Speaking to a gathering of pastors at the Family Research Council's 2016 "Watchmen on the Wall" conference on Capitol Hill Thursday, Lotz, the founder of AnGeL Ministries, discussed the "urgency to reach the lost," emphasizing that this is a critical time for believers to lead others to Christ before they are forced to live an eternity separated from God in Hell.
Lotz, who has authored a number of books including The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, sat down with The Christian Post for an interview following her speech and elaborated on her belief that her generation will not pass before the return of Jesus Christ, and her warning to Americans that the transgender bathroom debate reveals the country is in the last stages of God's judgment. more >>

Creationist Ken Ham has invited Bill Nye, known as "The Science Guy," to tour the Ark Encounter in Kentucky, the life-size Noah's Ark replica that is due to open on July 7, explaining that he wants to be friends with Nye, not adversaries.
"I want to publicly invite Bill Nye to come visit the Ark, I want to show him personally, or just show him where the entrance is, and let him go on his own, whatever he wants to do," Ham said in a video message posted on Facebook on Monday.
"I'd be thrilled to be able to show Bill Nye through the Ark, and so I'll be interested to know if people out there think Bill Nye will take up my invitation. I hope that he does," he added. more >>
