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 >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has called atheist author Richard Dawkins "blind" and suggested that he has a "closed mind" for criticizing GOP presidential candidates who would identify as creationists.
During an interview with Fox News Radio last week, Dawkins claimed that all GOP candidates are creationists, which he called "disgraceful."
"The fact that one of the two major political parties, every single candidate except one says they don't believe in evolution, they don't even believe in the fundamental principle of biology, which is a fact," Dawkins asserted. more >>
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson clarified that he believes that God created the world but does not believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old, as young Earth creationists claim. Carson also criticized those who claim there is no way the Earth can be billions of years old, saying that such people put themselves "in the same category as God."
"I certainly believe that God is our Creator. And interestingly enough, if you look at our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, it talks about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator," Carson told Fox News host Bill O'Reilly in an interview.
The retired neurosurgeon said that people can have their personal beliefs on the possibility of a literal interpretation of the Adam and Eve story in Genesis, but rejected claims that the Earth is only 6,000 years old. more >>
