Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings

I consider myself a rebel. I fight against the misconception that science is contrary to God, against the dogma handed us by pompous bullying professors who never venture outside the opinions of their colleagues. Their inability to recognize new truths is seen most clearly in their refusal to admit Darwinism is a failed theory, that…

Smile – You’re Human!

November 26, 2017 | Under Science | Posted by | No Comments

I’m not sure I would want to live in a world without smiles. The smile of a friend or loved one warms my heart. Sometimes even a smile from a stranger walking by on the street, a person I will never see again, brightens my day and makes me smile in return. Smiling often makes…

Spiders, poison dart frogs, and desert scorpions are not my favorite creatures. But when you look closely at them, you find undeniable evidence of God. Start with spiders. Spiders get around very well on eight legs. How did that happen? You might think, “well, there once was a two-legged spider, and then there was a…

Rethinking the Big Bang

October 3, 2017 | Under Science | Posted by | No Comments

I used to think the Big Bang theory was supported by multiple lines of scientific evidence, and impossible to challenge. When you watch anything related to astronomy on TV, it will probably be based on the Big Bang theory. In Counting To God I argued that the creation of all time, space, and matter from…

I think, overall, it was mostly two things in high school that pushed me towards Atheism. First was the Miller-Urey experiment.

I commute long distance. On Monday’s flight, I read two interesting articles on the human brain. The first was in Monday’s New York Times. Researchers developed technology you control using thought. You put on a headset with virtual reality goggles and sensors that read brain waves, and move virtual objects. The article said researchers “want…

DNA and the Bible

The Bible was under attack this week in newspapers around the world. Here’s one headline: “The Bible got it wrong: Ancient Canaanites survived and their DNA lives in modern-day Lebanese.” Here’s another: “Study disproves the Bible’s claim that the ancient Canaanites were wiped out.” The next four paragraphs are from the New York Times: “There…

Origin of Life

July 17, 2017 | Under Science | Posted by | No Comments

How did life get started? Could life have arisen by purely “natural” means, without a designer? The universe is a big place, with trillions times trillions of stars. Newspapers report “earth-like” planets; some must have liquid water. Is life inevitable, given enough time and sunshine? Well, maybe not. The origin of life is an unsolved…
