THE BIRD-OF-PARADISE IS FAMOUS FOR ITS MALE COURTING DANCE. But you have to see it to believe it, and I guarantee it will make your day. Click here to see this 4-minute video from Cornell University (then click back-button to return to blog writeup). It’s one of the most awesome biological things I have ever seen.

The video shows that four different groups of feathers are used to create the “smiley face” appearance of the displaying male.

The bird-of-paradise lives in New Guinea, just north of Australia, in the rainforest.… More

By full-size I mean the length of the ark is 170 yards (one and a half football fields), and its height is 7 stories. It’s an amazing thing to see. Included in the ark are models of dinosaurs, as well as Noah’s family. Wait…..dinosaurs were in the ark? Yes, plus explanations of the creation story. But which creation story?

It turns out there are three major creation models that Christians believe in. All three models support biblical inerrancy, but they vary in their interpretation of Genesis chapters 1-12.… More

This happened 50,000 years ago, and was caused by a meteor or asteroid about 150 ft across (size of a football field) and moving at 26,000 mph.

The impact struck with an explosive force of 20 million tons of TNT, and created shock waves that spread out over the desert and destroyed everything for several miles.… More
