An award-winning Liberty University English professor has argued that remarkable images of unborn animals are further proof of when life begins.
"I've never understood when people say they don't know when human life begins. Or why the United States Supreme Court opined in its 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion-on-demand, 'We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins," wrote Karen Swallow Prior in a blog on Thursday for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
"To deem this a difficult question seems only a way to make crooked the straight paths of the Lord (Acts 13:10). An acorn isn't an oak tree, pro-choice people say. True – but a sapling is." more >>
Bill Nye "The Science Guy" identified himself as an agnostic and revealed his expectations for the upcoming debate with Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham on the topic of creationism, saying that he doesn't expect they will be able to win each other over.
"Well I don't think I'm gonna win Mr. Ham over, anymore than Mr. Ham is going to win me over," Nye said in a video interview with Huff Post Live posted on Wednesday. Nye is scheduled to debate Ham on Feb. 4 at The Creation Museum's 900-seat Legacy Hall in Petersburg, Ky.
"Instead, I want to show people that this belief (creationism) is still among us. It finds its way into school boards in the United States," Nye stated. He reminded viewers that he is a mechanical engineer and not really a scientist, but is going in as a 'reasonable man' in the debate that is set to focus on the question "Is creation a viable model of origins in today's modern scientific world?" more >>
Recently, a picture from outer space was posted that some thought looked like the "Hand of God."
Writing about it, Tanya Lewis said, "The hand might look like an X-ray from the doctor's office, but it is actually a cloud of material ejected from a star that exploded."
She began her piece, noting, "Religion and astronomy may not overlap often, but a new NASA X-ray image captures a celestial object that resembles the 'Hand of God.'" more >>
WASHINGTON – Women who have more sexual partners are more likely to get an abortion, according to research presented at an event held at the Family Research Council (FRC) on Wednesday.
In a report published this month by the Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI) and presented at the FRC, the authors argued that the sexual revolution fuels the abortion industry.
An organizer of a nationwide annual anti-evolution observance has picked Answers in Genesis President Ken Ham to win in his debate against popular scientist Bill Nye.
"Cowboy" Bob Sorenson, organizer of "Question Evolution Day," told The Christian Post that Ham was the "easy victor" between the two.
"[Ham] is well read, educated and knows how science works. Bill Nye has demonstrated that he does not know the difference between operational and historical science," said Sorenson. more >>
A telescope overseen by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has captured an image that has been dubbed the "Hand of God."
NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array recently caught the image, showing a "pulsar wind nebula" derived from the death of a star.
"The stellar corpse, called PSR B1509-58, or B1509 for short, is a pulsar: it rapidly spins around, seven times per second, firing out a particle wind into the material around it – material that was ejected in the star's explosion," reported NASA. more >>
