Bill Nye Falls Flat

Paul Taylor September 14th, 2012

A little while ago, I blogged about Bill Nye’s nonsensical comments on creationism. Well, it appears that he has been making even more foolish and ill-informed comments on the subject of attempting to ban creationism from education.

Bill Nye Tells 46% of Americans not to Educate their Children

With all the hype that is surrounding Bill Nye the Science Guy recently, I had to throw my two cents into the ring.

Liking Itching Ears

Paul Taylor June 11th, 2012

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!

A Weekend in Enterprise

Eric Hovind February 22nd, 2012

This past weekend, God gave me the opportunity to speak in Enterprise, Alabama, at County Line Baptist Church. For this trip, I was privileged to take my second daughter, Angie, along. My brother, Kent, also came to videotape some of the meetings, and Daniel Johnson was there to help me with the book table.

The “Evolution” of Origami

Eric Hovind January 25th, 2012

In my biology class at Tennessee Temple University, I sat next to a young man from China named Daniel. During the entire first semester as he listened to the lectures, he would make paper swans — cute little origami swans. Some were so small that they could fit on the end of an eraser. I asked him why he kept making them and he told me that he was going to get engaged when he got back home. With a big smile on his face, he pulled out a picture of his girlfriend and showed it to me. I teased him by saying, “There is no way she will say yes to you,” then I asked, “What are the swans for?” He said that one tradition in China is to provide 5,000 origami swans as a symbol of your love. I thought WOW! That has to take some time. He had been working on them for eight months. I was really impressed and hoped that his labor was not in vain, if you know what I mean!

Genetically Modified Mosquito

Eric Hovind February 25th, 2011

Have you heard the news? Scientists have created genetically modified mosquitos in an attempt to help control the mosquito population. Because mosquitos carry such a variety of diseases, scientists are discovering ways of reducing the population and ways of switching off the gene that allows malaria to survive inside the mosquito. It is a neat trick, but here is what we think of it:

Bread can strengthen your heart

Dr. Kent Hovind January 4th, 2011

The Bible says that bread strengthens the heart (see Psalms 104:14-15). In modern times, however, in order to keep bread lasting longer, Vitamin E, Lecithin, and the Omega 3 fatty acids are removed from the wheat and replaced with white flour. Now, bread can last for months. Subsequently, more and more people are dying from heart attacks and circulation problems.

The Gap Theory Denies the Purpose of the Cross

Dr. Kent Hovind October 26th, 2010

Without a doubt, the foundation upon which our salvation and hope rests is the substitutionary death of Christ on the cross. God created a perfect, sinless earth and placed upon it a perfect, sinless man. This man, Adam, enjoyed close fellowship with his Creator until he sinned and broke the perfect relationship between God and man. Ever since that time, death and degradation have plagued God’s once-perfect creation, and man has been separated from God. However, the shedding of Christ’s innocent blood on the cross can restore man’s fellowship with God and provide him eternal life. Through Adam’s sin, death entered into the world; but through Christ’s sacrifice, salvation is made possible (Romans 5:19). Therein lies the gap theory’s greatest error, the placement of sin and death prior to the existence of Adam. If death existed prior to Adam’s sin, then how could it be the result of sin?
