Where Science and Faith Converge
  • If We Allow Science to Correct the Bible, Doesn’t That Make Science God?

    August 3, 2016

    Many Christians, and for that matter many non-Christians, are uneasy about an alliance between science and the Bible. Non-Christians worry that the Bible will be allowed to trump or discount science. Christians worry that science will be permitted to trump or discount the Bible.

    In the life sciences, researchers are discouraged from challenging certain reigning paradigms, such as the evolutionary explanation for the origin of humans. The opposite is the case in the astrophysical sciences. Astrophysicists are encouraged to critique and test even the best established facts, principles, and laws of physics and astronomy. An example of such a critique and test, one that has enormous implications for our biblical cosmic creation model, was announced just days ago.

  • The Cambrian Explosion and Evolutionists’ Responses

    Whether I speak at a church, a university, a seminary, or a research firm, during the Q&A time I am inevitably asked about the Cambrian explosion. I also get emails about the Cambrian explosion. Here is an an example from our inbox and my answer:

  • Farming Revolution Simultaneously Launches in Multiple Locations

    The earliest humans were engaged in agricultural industry, but humans were not able to launch and sustain a large-scale, specialized agricultural industry until Earth entered a period of extreme climate stability.1 Discoveries that early humans were engaged in agriculture are so recent that I was not able to include much of that news in my new book, Improbable Planet (releasing September 2016), until the day before final galleys were sent to the publisher.

    Some of the most frequent questions I get asked on Twitter are about human origins. Here is an example of a question and my answer in slightly more than 140 characters. Q: I was taught humans and Neanderthals evolved from a common ancestor. You say humans were created. What evidence shows my teachers are wrong?

  • Another Reason to Thank God for the Ice Age Cycle

    In my new book, Improbable Planet, I list and describe 11 different reasons why a human civilization sustaining billions of humans would be impossible if it were not for our living at the end of a highly fine-tuned ice age cycle.

  • How to Persuade a Skeptic That God Must Be Triune

    One of the most common questions I get at my speaking events is, how can we prove that God is a Trinity? It is also one of the more frequent questions I get on my Facebook and Twitter pages. Here is a slightly expanded version of my answer.

    • World Religions
    • Trinity
    • Hinduism
    • God
    • Doctrine
  • The Chameleon's Amazing Tongue Challenges Evolutionary Paradigm

    July 11, 2016

    The ability to change skin color is just one of several outstanding body design features that chameleons possess. They also possess the longest tongue-to-body-length ratio of any animal. Some chameleon species can project their tongues out of their mouths to an astounding length that is double that of their bodies (not including their tails)!

    Many of you have told me how much you enjoy the brief answers I post to the frequent questions I get on my Facebook and Twitter pages. But many of you have also asked if I could offer somewhat more complete answers that are still easy to share with others.

    The Internet has been abuzz lately with several articles and posts claiming that "at least a trillion alien civilizations have almost certainly existed in the universe."1 These claims are founded on the following four presuppositions:

    • Life on Other Planets
    • Exoplanets
    • Fine-Tuning
    • Design
