Scientific Critique Not Fair
This morning we were up at 7:00 and had to be on the road at 8:00 to drive down to Nazca in the Altacama Desert, the driest place on the planet. The trip was absolutely breathtaking as we drove from Pisco down to Nazca through the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The geography there was very telling as we saw river rock sediment covering the mountains. The question: “How could that kind of sediment be all the way up here?” kept running through my mind. Thankfully, our geologist Dr. Brent filled us in on the details and told us how the water from the ice age and subsequent flood could account for this river rock material. Evolutionary geology cannot make sense of or account for what we were observing.
Atheists ask for “proof” all the time; however, I don’t believe that is really what they want. I believe that atheists really want to be “persuaded” more than anything else. The reason I believe this is outlined below.
A recent study has just come out from scientists claiming that evidence of man and dinosaurs living together is bogus. The new report claims that the most famous petroglyph of a dinosaur in Kachina Bridge, Utah, is not a dinosaur at all; instead, using drawings to illustrate their point, they are describing it as the combination of two different petroglyphs.
After a few hours of sleep, we began our day with a piece of bread and some instant coffee for breakfast. (Not complaining; it was complimentary!) We took the opportunity this morning to see one of the tourist attractions by chartering a boat to take us out across the Paracas Bay to the Isle de Ballestos, an island just off the coast of Pisco. The Paracas people lived there from 1300 B.C to 300 A.D. and they made the most famous textiles in the world. Because of the dry climate in Peru, these textiles are remarkably preserved today. This area is most known for the Candelabra, a massive 650-foot-tall and 310-feet-wide image in the side of one of the islands that has been dug some 6 to 7 feet deep into the surface. Today there are some questions as to the meaning of this formation and, therefore, several different theories as to what purpose it served. The guide described a few of these concepts ranging from ocean navigation lines to a symbol of worship so that the gods would bless their plants. Personally, I think it was a fabulous waterslide that the pre-Columbian people used
Well guys, thanks for praying for me. I am in Pisco, Peru, enjoying a great adventure with a group on a scientific expedition. We spent the day traveling on Monday, got up this morning and took a tour of Lima, the capitol city. One of the stops was the square where the city was founded in 1535 by the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro.
A teenage boy recently asked a question from our Facebook page. My heart goes out to him with everything he is going through. Here is what he wrote:
What is the best April Fools joke you ever pulled off on someone? I have always been, much to my teachers’ disapproval, a practical joker. What many call sinister I sometimes call funny! Just ask around the office and they will tell you! One time at middle school camp I shaved the eyebrows off of a kid that fell asleep in the middle of the day. I do feel bad for doing it, but still crack a smile when I think about how someone could sleep through something like that. A few months ago I was at the Deeper Conference with the guys from Living Waters and I roomed with Mark Spence. Since I had a key to his room, the next day I turned his entire bed upside down, but made it look like it was still made on top. He still hasn’t gotten me back for that yet, but I know it is coming!
