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 >>
Italian forensics investigators have used the Shroud of Turin, believed by some to be the burial cloth of Christ, to produce an image of how Jesus might have possibly looked like as a child.
The Independent reported that police generated a photo-fit image from the negative facial image imprinted on the famous shroud. They then used a reversed aging process which included reducing the size of the jaw, raising the chin, and other techniques to produce the image of the young Jesus. Photos released online show the step-by-step reversed aging process used.
The shroud's authenticity has been the subject of much debate and scientific testing. It is recognized by the Vatican as an important relic, but the Roman Catholic Church has never proclaimed its stance on whether the face imprinted in the shroud really belongs to Jesus. more >>
New York Times best-selling author, comedian and self-professed Christian Steve Harvey says he can't "wrap his mind around" Bruce Jenner's recent interview with Diane Sawyer where he told the world that he identifies as a woman.
During a Sunday interview with "Hip Hollywood," Harvey shared his thoughts on the Jenner's announcement.
"Everybody says it's the bravest thing they've ever seen, so that's the politically correct thing to say," Harvey asserted. "I can't wrap my mind around it all. Zero. I have no concept of what that means. Nothing negative. He has every right to live his life the way he want to, but I can't come in the house and make that announcement to my wife, to my children. Nothing." more >>
Answers in Genesis, founded by creationist Ken Ham, has argued in an article against suggestions that Neanderthals were ancient pre-Adamic and therefore soulless humans, asserting that they, too, were made in God's image.
The article, written by AiG's Elizabeth Mitchell, challenges what she says are arguments by Old Earth creationists such as Hugh Ross of Reasons to Believe, that position Neanderthals as "pre-Adamic intelligent but soulless human-like bipedal beings who painted on cave walls and buried their dead."
"Noting that this amounts to a belief that soulless humans, though Ross would not call them human, lived before Adam and Eve, we have often called attention to the inconsistencies of Ross' position with the Word of God," Mitchell wrote. more >>
Over a million people are reportedly flocking to Turin in Italy to be a part of the first public display in five years of the famous 14-foot shroud, believed by many to hold the imprint of the face of Jesus Christ.
The Shroud of Turin is displayed relatively rarely to the public, The Guardian reported, and has been available for viewing only five times since 1933.
The relic is usually kept sealed inside a container in a chapel next to the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, and was last displayed in 2010. This year its presentation commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Saint John Bosco, a Catholic who worked with poor youth in Turin. more >>
A 13-year-old girl named Stephanie who lives in the Houston area has come up with a brilliant idea. With the help of a motor company, they come up with a genius idea to send a message to space. Stephanie's father is currently in space and loves to take pictures, so this idea was PERFECT!
Can a car deliver a message to space?
With their New Thinking campaign, which focuses on families split apart by distance, Hyundai was able to solve the problem. Experts from all over the world came together and brainstormed the location to display the message. They based this location information on both geographical and metrological factors. The decision to use the Delamar Dry Lake in Nevada was made. They sent 11 Genesis model cars out in the area to create a message from Stephanie. more >>
