Hyperbole from news media on the subject of evolution is nothing new. So, when reports started appearing in the secular media that South Korea was removing the teaching of evolution from schools, most creationists would have smelled a rat.
A recent Gallup Poll1 has suggested that 46 percent of all Americans hold a creationist viewpoint of human origins. This statistic by itself promotes comment. The Gallup report states:
As an author, I like to check where my books are being sold and often check on their Amazon listings. It was amusing to find that the Amazon algorithm had recommended a useful product for people who were buying my new book, No Time for Itching Ears. It suggested that they buy a cream that treats fungal infections in your ear!
In this excerpt from my new book, No Time for Itching Ears, I want to explain the rationale between defining doctrines as primary, secondary and tertiary. I then make the case that the plain, historical reading of Genesis constitutes a primary doctrine.

My new book, No Time for Itching Ears, was released this week. You can buy it online at the Creation Store, or make the trip to our store and buy a signed copy!
In 2007, I was invited to speak at a Christian youth camp in the Netherlands. In one of my talks, on the subject of dinosaurs, I referred, as I often do, to the “behemoth,” as mentioned in Job 40:15. Even with an able translator, this caused a certain amount of confusion, as I then went on, as I often do, to comment on how many Bibles footnote this creature, and describe it as a hippopotamus or an elephant. The 1984 edition of the New International Version does this, though I am pleased to note that this footnote has been removed in the 2011 edition. However, the children were all using a Dutch translation of the Bible (Het Boek in Dutch) which was produced by the International Bible Society (IBS)— precisely the same organization that translated the NIV in English. The first source of confusion was that Dutch uses different verse numbers. This is OK — chapter and verse numbers are not inspired. So, the verse that in English is Job 40:15, in Dutch it turns out to be Job 40:10.
A lady came into the shop where I worked. I knew that her husband was a pastor. They both frequently visited our shop. Today, however, she had some fearful news.
