The Shrinking Moon

In a recent article on Fox News, a new study has shown that our moon is shrinking because of internal cooling.

New “Must Have” Book for Creationists

Discerning Truth

After finishing The Ultimate Proof by Dr. Jason Lisle, I ordered his new book Discerning Truth to see if it had some more good info about debating. You will not be disappointed as you learn to expose some of the major problems in evolutionary thinking. Discerning Truth takes you on a short but effective journey into the laws of logic.

By Design or By Chance?

RC Helicopter and the bacterial flagellum

It took me five minutes of coaxing my wife to get her to see the value of our family’s first RC helicopter for the kids. (When I say “kids.” I mean me. :-)

Redemption Is Eternal

Eric Hovind September 22nd, 2010

During a Home School Family Camp this September, I had the opportunity to play paintball with the campers. After several rounds of capture the flag, team elimination and just plain fun, we ended the afternoon with a game called “Moose.” In Moose, two people are chosen to be “eternal” (they cannot be eliminated), and they have to take out all the other players before the game is over. It was fun when I was “eternal” because I knew that I could never be taken out. Even if the other player hit me, it didn’t matter—I was not going to stop until they were “dead.”

Attacking the Atheists Foundation on the streets

Eric Hovind September 20th, 2010

God commands us to close the mouths of unbelievers.

Have you ever had a conversation with an atheist that never seemed to get anywhere? How do you close the mouth of an unbeliever? To open their minds to see their own foolishness? Two months ago, Chad from Living Waters ministries had never considered the idea of challenging someone’s assumptions instead of challenging the evidence that they present. After watching the “Proving God” series on www.creationtoday.org, Chad got the book The Ultimate Proof by Dr. Jason Lisle and read it in one day! Within two months of studying how the atheist really thinks and what God says about that, Chad had an opportunity to put his study into practice on the streets against an atheist. By the end of the conversation, God had used Chad to “close the mouth” of the unbeliever and show him exactly what is necessary for salvation.

Everything came from “NOTHING”?

Eric Hovind September 15th, 2010

In his latest book The Grand Design, Steven Hawking writes, “Because there is a law such as gravity, the Universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the Universe exists, why we exist.”

Deeper Conference

Eric Hovind September 13th, 2010

Can you smell that?  That is the smell of sweet, fresh air coming from the beautiful hills of Kentucky. In just a few short days, I will be attending the Deeper Conference at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. If you are even close to the area, like within 1000 miles, you will want to join me there on September 17th and 18th! The learning is going to be intense and the impact lasting as we continue to dive deeper into what it is like to defend the faith and serve our creator God. The line-up of speakers is amazing.

The Lemonade Stand

The Gift of Work

This past Tuesday, while my wife was at the grocery store with our girls, my 7-year-old daughter saw a bag of lemons and asked if she could have a lemonade stand to help raise money for a puppy that they saw in a pet store. My wife thought it was a good idea, but said that the girls would have to use their own money to purchase the ingredients and do all the work of making the lemonade. Friday night came around and all the plans that we had worked on for the week started into motion. The girls washed, heated, softened, cut and juiced 40 lemons. I thought their little arms were going to fall off!
