The Internet is an amazing thing. More and more creation ministries are cropping up, and creating vast archives of material that’s available free, online, for anyone who wants to learn more about Creation Science. I’m going to share lots of examples in the next few weeks, but I’ll start with video.
Answers in Genesis has 175 different videos you can watch online (many of them are titles that have 2, 3 or 4 parts, so the number of individual topics is not as high as that). A sampling: The Bible Explains Dinosaurs, What the New Testament Really Says about Creation, Wild, Wild Weather: The Genesis Flood & The Ice Age, Where Did God Come From? and In the Beginning Was Information. You can watch online or add a video to your playlist.
Creation Ministries International has an ever-growing collection of episodes of Creation Magazine Live. Topics include whether God used evolution to create life, the Gap theory, progressive creation, the tower of Babel and the origin of the nations, radioisotope dating, and how Noah’s Flood is the key to the age of the earth. Videos are in low and high resolution Windows Media Player format and also Quick Time. They are free to watch and copy.
If you know of other video resources online, please feel free to post a comment or contact me and let me know.
There are also many creation science DVDs available. I purchased a whole box full at the beginning of the summer, when they happened to be on sale at CMI. I’ll be posting information on those periodically.
It’s always made me puzzled when I see kids from good Christian families grow up and leave the church. As a young parent, it scared me to see this, and I wondered, will this happen when my kids grow up? What can I do to stop it?
Recently, I think I have found the answer to this. Ken Ham has written a book about it, and today I read an article at the ICR website that has a similar conclusion: as a church, we are not teaching our kids to defend their faith against the attacks that will come from our humanistic society.
Here is an example of a question my younger son posed to me at the time of the second Ice Age movie: “Did the Ice Age happen before or after Noah’s Flood?” Fortunately for him, I was, at the time, reading Frozen in Time by Michael Oard, which you can read online, so I knew the answer.
This is the kind of specific knowledge we are not teaching to our children. What do they think when they go to school and are taught that dinosaurs became extinct millions of years before humans evolved? Do they even know that dinosaurs are mentioned in the Bible? Do they have any idea how the timeline of history they are being taught in school fits in with the Bible stories they are being taught in Sunday school? If someone asked them, “Where did Cain get his wife?” would they know the answer?
I created this blog to do my part to change this situation. To provide parents and those who teach our kids with answers to specific questions and specific scientific information that does not contradict the Bible and helps us make sense of some of these confusing questions.
I welcome your comments. Right now I have it set up that the first time you comment, the post will be held till I approve it. After that, you’ll be able to post right away, and I’ll leave it like that unless I have trouble with anyone who can’t be civil. I don’t mind if you disagree with me, but please do so in a polite manner. Point out an error, rather than calling me names. And keep it family-friendly, kids may be visiting this site as well as adults.
I’m open to suggestions on topics you want to know more about, or where to find more information.
