WHATS IN THIS BLOG: Three positions for Genesis believers. Young Earth Creation (YEC). Theistic Evolution. (Evolution of birds from dinosaurs plus DNA evidence for evolution). Old Earth Progressive Creation. Each position has a dilemma.

This is the third part of a three-part series on creation and evolution. It’s a mix of science and spiritual. The subject here is personal belief, and how your belief compares with others. As always, I use as much data and facts as possible.

THREE POSITIONS FOR GENESIS BELIEVERS. If you believe in biblical truth AND you believe in science, you fall into one of three positions, as laid out in a book by Hal Reed and Duane Thurman called How to Think about Evolution (2015). It’s a carefully researched book, not yet published, by two biology professors.… More

WHATS IN THIS BLOG: • Overview of creation – evolution. • Where does science succeed and where does it fail? • Fossil evidence for deep time. • How reliable are dating methods? • The bones of John the Baptist. • The dilemma of young earth creation. • Thirsty koala bear in Australian extreme heat drinking water.

On the subject of deep time, this is the second of three parts of a series on creation and evolution. It’s a mix of science and spiritual. As always, I use as much data and facts as possible. Your feedback and comments will be appreciated.

WHATS IN THIS BLOG: • Wonders of the natural world • The hummingbird • Spectacular hikes • Role of consciousness in creation and evolution

This is the first of three parts of a series on creation and evolution. It’s a mix of science and spiritual. I’m motivated by a need for clarity, as I’ve heard statements on the subject that seem way off the mark. As always, I use as much data and facts as possible, but there are times when my own experience and bias comes in. Your feedback and comments will be appreciated.

LET’S BEGIN WITH SOME WONDERS OF THE NATURAL WORLD. The whirlpool galaxy is a classic spiral galaxy, and one of the brightest in the sky. However, 75% of matter in this galaxy is missing.… More

Feathers on a dinosaur as small as a sparrow – WHATS IN THIS BLOG: • How were the dinosaur feathers discovered? • Also, how old was the dinosaur? • How did feathers come about?

A PIECE OF AMBER ABOUT THE SIZE OF A DRIED APRICOT was purchased by a Chinese scientist called Xing Lida in a Myanmar market. An inclusion in the amber looked like part of a plant, but was actually the tail of a theropod dinosaur, covered with feathers. The tail of the creature contained at least nine vertebrae, so it definitely was not a bird.

NOTE: the references in this article come from an article in a website called “evolutionistrue”. I do NOT support evolution without the hand of God guiding it (i.e.… More

As central as Heaven is to our Christian faith, some of us find it a bit hard to relate to Biblical images of streets of gold. Young folks in particular may not look forward to Heaven if they don’t have a good image of it. This week, I found an analogy to Heaven that gave me goose-bumps.
