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.”
The article “Deceived by the Morpho-saurs” (July 31, 2010) in New Scientist magazine reveals several serious problems evolutionists have frequently overlooked. The author admits that the number of dinosaurs may be greatly exaggerated (I agree!) since some dinosaurs change shapes so radically as they grow that they now have different species names for the same dinosaur at different stages of its life. If they had only been found as fossils and not alive, no one would ever think the caterpillar and the butterfly were the same animal!
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.
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.”
The theory of evolution, which is taught as a fact in our public school textbooks, tax-supported parks, museums, and public television programs, is actually not a harmless theory but a dangerous religious belief. I have dedicated my life to help people learn the truth needed to expose evolutionism as being largely responsible for molding the thinking of hosts of people like Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot of the Khmer in Cambodia, Margaret Sanger, and Karl Marx, who have caused untold suffering in our world. Evolution as it is being taught is dangerous for several reasons (Creation Seminar Part #5).
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.
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!
Q: “Dr. Hovind, We just started the school year, and the first chapter deals with how the universe began ‘billions of years ago’ with the ‘big bang.’ The authors teach it like it is a fact and they saw it happen! What do I do?”
