Must Christians who believe the scientific evidence for an old Earth also believe in a liberal reading of Scripture? This was one of the questions The Christian Post asked of Hugh Ross, whose book, A Matter of Days: Resolving a Creation Controversy, is now in a second, expanded edition.
A Matter of Days is both a critique of the "young Earth" view, that God created the Earth and universe in six 24-hour days, and an apologia of the view that there is no conflict between science and the Bible over the age of the Earth and universe. In other words, Christians can trust both the Bible and observations about the universe using scientific methods, and non-Christians can rest assured that the Christian faith is not inherently anti-science.
"The desire for reconciliation motivated this book," Ross wrote in chapter one. more >>
Many of us have looked up at the sky at any given moment and found ourselves staring at the stars, mesmerized by the beauty that the universe has to offer. It is breathtaking!
This man travels to El Teide, which is one of the highest mountain tops of Spain to record something that is so beautiful that it can be described by words in the Bible. Hard to visualize just imagining it, but seeing it is like nothing you have ever imagined before. Get ready to take a journey through some of the most spectacular views from night to day, stars, and the sky turning all different colors.
It's similar to King David when he wrote Psalms 19:1, "The Heavens are declaring the glory of God; And of the work of his hands the expanse is telling." more >>
A distinguished psychologist has argued in a recently published book that pornography and video games are leading young men into alarmingly high rates of "social isolation" and a "modern meltdown of manhood."
Dr. Philip Zimbardo, former president of the American Psychological Association and author of over 50 books, has stated that the two sources of online entertainment are harming young men mentally.
Zimbardo recently told the BBC that pornography and online video games like "World of Warcraft" have "digitally rewired" young men's minds. more >>
Nepal was hit by a 7.3-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday which has already killed 32 people and injured over 1,000 others, with the death toll rising. Back in April the country suffered widespread devastation after a 7.8-magnitude quake killed over 8,000.
CNN reported that Tuesday's earthquake triggered an avalanche in a sparsely populated region about 30 miles north of Kathmandu. Nepal, which has suffered a series of aftershocks following April's earthquake, is seeking to asses the extent of the latest damage, communications ministry spokesman Minendra Rijal said.
41-year-old documentarian Marc Sarrado from Spain shared his experience in Nepal's Nuwakot Valley: "For the first seconds, it was complete silence. By the fifth second, everybody started to scream," he said. more >>
The moment a mother goes for her first ultrasound, a special bond is made between the baby and the mother. As a blind woman, the experience of this bond is much different. You must rely fully on the description of others to get an idea of what it looks like. That would be the case, except 3D printing gives this woman an incredible experience.
Huggies has set out to make one blind woman's ultrasound experience one she'll never forget. By using this unique 3D-printing technique, they fabricated a touchable three-dimensional version of her baby's face. It is something that was impossible before today's technology became available. By giving her this amazing gift, the doctor has given her a precious moment she would have otherwise only been able to experience at birth. How she reacts to the mold will put tears of joy into your eyes.

Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has spoken out against media buzz over NASA's chief scientist Ellen Stofan's claims that the discovery of alien life is only decades away. Ham argued that the search for alien life is a secularist objective, and said that the Bible suggests that life outside of Earth does not exist.
"Evolutionists are convinced they'll find life in outer space because if evolution occurred here on Earth, then it must have occurred somewhere else. According to secularists, Earth is not special," Ham wrote on his Answers in Genesis blog.
"In their view, it's just one of many places where, over the supposed billions of years of the universe's history, life managed to come from non-life and begin the process of evolution. Despite a lack of evidence, scientists are becoming increasingly convinced that life will be found soon." more >>
