Is faith in God just a holdover from our evolutionary past? That's what some scientists are saying, but their explanations are more like science fiction.
If there's one area of science that shows how ill-equipped naturalism is to make sense of the world, it's evolutionary psychology — the study of how evolution shaped the way we think, feel, and act. Even among outspoken Darwinists, this field is known for sensationalism and outright nonsense.
Take one study from Newcastle University that claimed to explain why boys prefer blue and girls prefer pink. The scientists' answer? Because tens of thousands of years ago, our male ancestors had to watch for predators silhouetted against the blue sky, while women had to focus on gathering berries, which are usually pink. I'm not kidding. This was published in a peer-reviewed, scientific journal. more >>
Ken Ham, CEO and president of the Creation Museum, has announced that the grand opening of the Ark Encounter will take place on July 7, 2016, at Williamstown, Kentucky, and will initially be open for "40 days and 40 nights."
"We are so excited that the construction progress and schedule landed on this 7/7 date. Genesis 7:7 states that Noah and his family entered the Ark. So it's fitting we allow the public to enter the life-size Ark on 7/7," Ham revealed.
In anticipation of large crowds, the Noah's Ark project will operate for 40 days straight, before starting normal hours of operation on Aug. 15. more >>
Hillsong NYC Pastor Carl Lentz was featured on Comedy Central's "The Nightly Show" on Thursday, where he debated the compatibility of religion and science with famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
While partly a comedic segment, the two offered their views on whether scientific discoveries harm religious belief, with Lentz stating that religious people shouldn't be afraid of science.
Now solidly a frontrunner in the presidential race, Dr. Ben Carson delivered two speeches at Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tennessee, Sunday, where he defended his Old Earth creationist worldview and American political liberties.
Speaking at the megachurch, Carson said his creationist views aided his career as a surgeon and medical doctor. The Tennessean reported that Carson's speech alternated between the style of a sermon and stump speech, while heavily critiquing some forms of evolutionary theory.
"They say, 'Carson, ya know, how can you be a surgeon, a neurosurgeon, and believe that God created the Earth, and not believe in evolution, which is the basis of all knowledge and all science," declared Carson. more >>
You know Darwinism has problems, but how do you explain them to your friends and family? Well, look no further than a bicycle lock.
What's the greatest discovery in the history of biology? If you said "seedless watermelons," you're close. Actually, it's probably the discovery of DNA.
It's hard to imagine in this age of genetic engineering, but scientists in Darwin's time saw life as quite simple. Cells were thought to be blobs of primitive chemicals called "protoplasm." But as technology advanced and scientists were able to peer inside the cell, they discovered something amazing: Every living thing actually contains intricate, microscopic machines, performing functions without which life would not be possible. more >>
Ten years after publication of Who Was Adam? by Fazale Rana and Hugh Ross, 13 new chapters detail the new scientific evidence on the origins of humankind in a second edition.
Rana and Ross are scholars affiliated with Reasons to Believe, which also published the new edition of Who Was Adam? RTB works to spread the Gospel by showing how science supports the truths found in Scripture. Rana and Ross both have doctorate degrees in the physical sciences, biochemistry and astronomy, respectively.
Unlike most second editions, this one leaves the original edition alone and adds the new chapters onto the original. more >>
