Young Earth Creationist Has Bone to Pick With Evolutionists
April 8, 2005 - Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, explains that the soft tissue found in a recently discovered dinosaur bone in Montana is strong evidence of a young earth because soft tissue would not have survived millions of years as the evolutionists claim.
Design For Living
Feb. 7, 2005 - In this New York Times Op-Ed piece, Michael J. Behe explains the theory of Intelligent Design. In the article, he quotes Bruce Alberts, president of the National Academy of Sciences, who said that the chemistry of life was "much more elaborate and sophisticated" than he, and other students in the 1960's could have considered.
Michael J. Behe is a professor of biological sciences at Lehigh University and a senior fellow with the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture. He is the author of "Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution."
- In fact, Dr. Alberts remarked, the entire cell can be viewed as a factory with an elaborate network of interlocking assembly lines, each of which is composed of a set of large protein machines.

There is a God, leading atheist concludes
Dec. 9, 2004 - Antony Flew, a British philosophy professor, and famous athiest, now says that scientific evidence, especially the complexity of DNA, has convinced him to believe in God, though he does not yet embrace the Biblical concept of God. Flew, who is 81 is the son of a Methodist pastor. He became an athiest at age 15, and has been a leading voice for that philosophy over the years.
- Flew said he was best labeled a deist, like Thomas Jefferson, whose God was not actively involved in people’s lives.
- Craig Hazen, Director of the Apologetics Department at Biola University, has just announced that the January 2005 issue of their journal, Philosophia Christi will include an interview of Flew by Dr. Gary Habermas. The ex-athiest admits that he was influenced by the debates and discussions of Intelligent Design scientists and philosophers.
Poll: Creationism Trumps Evolution
Nov. 23, 2004 - According to a CBS public opinion poll, 55 percent of Americans believe God created man in his present form, and most of the rest believe God was involved in the process of evolution. Only 13 percent thought God was not involved at all. The majority (65 percent) thought that both creation and evolution ought to be taught as possibilities for human origins.

Panicked Evolutionists: The Stephen Meyer Controversy
Sept. 15, 2004 - Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, says that evolutionists are showing panic because of a scientific article by Dr. Steven Meyer that was published in one of their own journals, Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. Dr. Meyer's article, entitled "The Origin of Biological Information and the Higher Taxonomic Categories," demonstrated that the explosion of biological forms in the Cambrian period can not possibly be explained by the process of evolution.
Christian dinosaur hunters dig for signs of Biblical dragons
June 19, 2004 -
Countless dinosaur bones lie buried in the rocks of South Dakota but the Christians excavating one remote cliff-face were digging not just for reptilian vertebrae but for the hand of God.
With screwdrivers, hammers and shaving brushes for tools, the group was seeking and, as far as it was concerned, unearthed proof that the animals perished not millions of years ago but in Noah's Flood circa 2300 BC.
To these believers in the Bible's literal truth, they are not dinosaurs but "missionary lizards", which are powerful weapons in the battle for young American hearts and minds.

Galaxy find stirs Big Bang debate
Jan. 9, 2004 - An Australian-led team of scientists has discovered a new string of galaxies in a remote part of the Universe that is too big to explain by current astronomy theories. Team leader Dr. Paul Francis said:
- "The simulations tell us that you cannot take the matter in the early universe and line it up in strings this large. There simply hasn't been enough time since the Big Bang for it to form structures this colossal."
New particle is double trouble for physicists
Nov. 17, 2003 - Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have discovered mysterious sub-atomic particle that will cause physicists to re-think their theory of the masses of sub-atomic particles. A spokesman for the group said, "If the molecular interpretation is correct, then it would be one of the first compelling cases for a new type of matter - it opens up a whole new realm of study."

Dark future for Universe
Aug. 16, 2003 - Astronomers are now saying that there are 10 times more stars in the visible Universe than all the grains of sand on every beach and desert in the world. But using new methods of measuring the light of whole galaxies, they also say that the stars are beginning to decline, and will one day, in the very distant future, cease to shine.
More stars 'than grains of sand'
July 23, 2003 - A mind boggling study from the Australian National University indicates that there are 10 times more stars in the night sky than grains of sand in the world's deserts and beaches. The number of stars visible from the Earth from telescopes is said to be 70 thousand million million million - or seven followed by 22 zeros.
- Without a telescope it is only possible to see around 5,000 stars from the darkest places of the Earth, and just 100 in the middle of a large city.

Refuting Darwinism, point by point
- Jan. 11, 2003- Veteran creation author, James Perloff has a new book, which is deliberately short, that shows the weaknesses of evolution. The book is called, "The Case Against Darwin." Perloff was an athiest himself, because of the teaching of evolution, and he is motivated by the fact that many other athiests have also had the negative influence of a evolutionary "science" that is wrong.
Georgia School District Votes to Allow Different Views Taught on Origin of Life
- Sept. 27, 2002 - Georgia's second-largest school district has decided unanimously to allow teachers permission to introduce students to varying views about the origin of life, including creationism. They reason that, "Discussion of disputed views of academic subjects is a necessary element of providing a balanced education, including the study of the origin of species." Critics of the decision cite a 1987 Supreme Court ruling that creationism is a religious belief that could not be taught in public schools along with evolution.

The War Between Evolution and God’s Intelligent Design
- Sept. 3, 2002 - Professor Jed Macosko,a microbiologist teaches biology, including intelligent design, at La Sierra University in California. He says the molecules of living things form elaborate machines that are no more accidents than intelligently designed flying machines
He also said that if religious claims should be kept out of the classroom, Darwinism should also be considered unacceptable.
- "Intelligent design provides a great way to introduce students to the controversies around evolution and to provide a way of thinking through things," Macosko said.
- It's saying there was no purpose, there was no intelligence behind this and that's a very religious statement.

Time magazine's new ape-man
- July 24, 2001 - James Perloff, author of Tornado In A Junkyard, shows that Time Magazine's newest cover article about evolution is dishonest. It introduces Ardipithecus ramidus kadabba with the headline, "How Apes Became Human." This is an ape that supposedly walked upright, based on the type of toes it had. Hidden at the back of the article is a brief mention that the toes were found ten miles from the rest of the skeleton, with no real scientific evidence that they belong to the ape. This specimen is destined to join the long list of other hoaxes that have been forced on the public by evolutionists.

Enlisting Science to Find the Fingerprints of a Creator
- Mar. 25, 2001 - Roger DeHart, a Washington state high school biology teacher, has been including discussion of "Intelligent Design" in his classes. Without mentioning God or the Bible, he has used scientific evidence to show that life is designed by an intellilgent force.
The censure has made DeHart a "martyr" among the growing community of intellectuals who agree with him.
- Over nine years, DeHart would introduce ideas
about this theory of "intelligent design." Then a student
protested that DeHart was pushing religion. Then the
ACLU filed a complaint. In 1999, school authorities
ordered DeHart to drop references to design and stick
to the textbook.
- One 1999 national survey by Scientific American
magazine showed that fewer than 10% of National
Academy of Sciences members believe in God. By
contrast, 90% of Americans not only believe in God but
say God played at least some role in creation,
according to the Gallup Organization.

State School Boards Grapple With Evolution Theory
- Feb. 22, 2001 - In 1999 The Kansas state school board shocked the nation by deciding to to de-emphasize evolutionary theory in its science standards. They have recently elected new state school board members who have reversed that decision. However, the battle is continuing in other states.
Serious consideration is being given by these state boards to creationism. This is due to the small but growing movement among scientists and philosophers called intelligent design.
- Other state school boards are challenging evolution's preeminence in public schools, including Alabama, Arizona, Idaho, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
- Promoters of intelligent design, such as Lehigh University biochemist Michael
Behe and University of San Francisco cell biologist Paul Chien, critique
Darwinism on scientific and philosophic grounds without reference to any
religious text. They believe that their empirical research indicates the presence
of design in the natural world — not "apparent design" as Darwin asserted —
and that the best explanation for the cause is an intelligent designer.

Nasa team finds 'origin of life'
