BBC Hardtalk Video. Strong Creationist Argument Against Evolution By John Mackay

John Mackay (a creationist) was interviewed on the BBC News TV programme called HardTalk.  This is a very watchable and enjoyable rebuttal against the biassed unscientific teachings of evolutionists.  Evolutionists are unscientific because of  their straitjacketed refusal to consider or properly examine the overwhelming evidence of creation and a young Earth.  From my perspective, it appears that John Mackay gives a convincing rebuttal. Please let me know what you think. To watch the video please click on the following shortcut link:

Black Parents White Baby. Black/White Twins. Two Stories Which Give Further Evidences Bible Can Be Trusted

1. BBC News: “Baby Tale Not Black and White

Out of Britain comes more news that upsets the idea of “race.”
Last January "Answers In Genesis" covered news of British babies Leah and Miya Durrant: biological twins despite the fact that one had light brown skin, blue eyes, and red hair (like her mother) while the other had dark brown hair and skin (like her father). Along with two older siblings that also looked to be from different “races,” the family was a stark visual rebuttal to the idea that “race” is a meaningful term.
Although the story isn’t quite the same, another British couple has once again overturned casual assumptions about skin, hair, and eye color inheritance and shown race to be a specious concept. The Sun reports on Angela Ihegboro and her husband Ben, who, along with their son Chisom and daughter Dumebi, all have dark brown skin, hair, and eyes—reflecting their Nigerian heritage. But newly born daughter Nmachi has pale, sand-colored skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes—“white,” but not albino (as was confirmed by doctors).

Interesting News Items From Yahoo

Please read these interesting articles from yahoo news, via these links:

1) The first one regards expected solar activity in a few years time. Could this be as prophesied in the Bible (Revelation)? However, we must always remember that God IS in control of all universal events and His judgements are irrespective of scientific discoveries. But, it could be that God has already put in place the motions of these judgements ahead of time????  But, He could still intervene!!!

2) The second one illustrates how quickly landscape can change. It doesn't require "millions" of years!!!

UFO Sightings, Abductions etc Are They Evidence of Life on Other Planets (Aliens) or The Return Of Nephilim or Some Other Explanation?

Sometime ago I wrote an article on this whole subject. I then found an article on Tony Pearce's website "Light For The Last Days" which gives a wonderful explanation and backs up my reasoning (in a better way than I could present). Also please check out this report from Answers In Genesis  Here is my report:

First My UFO Explanation
God said that the planets were to be signs and seasons to serve the Earth and that the Earth was created to house MAN. So important to the heart of God was MAN that God sent His SON into the world to save us from our sins. In the context of God's dealings with man it makes no sense that God would create life on other planets.

What about sightings?  From stories I've heard, most of those who have had "real" alien experiences specifically abductions have at some time or other been involved with the occult in some shape or another: seances, astrology, yoga, tarot cards etc. This would indicate that demonic activity can be experienced by those who have been affected by demons or even demon possessed. However, there may be some simple "earthly" or other spiritual explanation.

The Old and New Testament teaches that Satan and his demonic cohorts are able to manifest  in many guises and disguises. For example a serpent in the garden of Eden, pretending to be the ghost of a loved one or as an angel of light. he is in the counterfeit business and is quite able to appear in a form which will lead people into deception or fear and turn them away from the true and Living God. Sometimes, he roars like a lion ,ie makes noises, but for the believer has no bite.  Those rapture reports given in the bible: Elijah, Enoch, Jesus have to be explained away by satan, so what does he do?

Answers In Genesis Cautious Report re Alleged Noah's Ark Finding

Following on from my last post I copy what "Answers In Genesis" have to say about the Noah's Ark finding. They are asking us to exercise caution until more conclusive tests,examinations have taken place. At the present they remain suspicious on the claims. Here is what they wrote:

Noah's Ark Found Or a Hoax?

I found an article on Keith Sinclair's post (about the probable finding of Noah's Ark) which was copied/pasted from a yahoo news article. I had thought it would fit in very well inside one of my labels as further evidence that the bible is totally reliable. However, as Christians we need to tell the truth "honestly" without fabricating things.  Note that the flood of Noah took place just under 4500 years ago according to the Biblical timescale (approx. 1650 years after the creation of Adam). The report said that experts using carbon-dating (which is not 100% reliable but fairly reliable over a shortish period of time - like a few thousand years) have dated this finding as 4800 years old!   Close enough in dates, but .......???
For more on this see this link which is "Answers In Genesis" (AiG) report on carbon dating:  How Carbon Dating Actually Prove Creation, A Young Earth and a Global Noah's Flood

Note: the organisation "AiG" are asking us to be very wary (at present). See my next post (on this shortcut)  Answers In Genesis Cautious Report re Alleged Noah's Ark Finding   which gives AIG's report. Also see the following very useful comments from readers.

How Did Animals Spread All Over the World from Where the Ark Landed?

An issue often used in an attempt to beat biblical creationists over the head is the worldwide distribution of animals. Such a distribution, say critics, proves that there could never have been a global Flood or an Ark.
If the Ark landed somewhere in the Middle East, then all the animals would have disembarked at that point, including animals that we do not find in the Middle East today, or in the fossil record in that area. How did kangaroos get to Australia, or kiwis to New Zealand? How did polar bears get to North America and penguins to Antarctica? Please read on for the answers

Strong Evidence For a Global Noahic Flood As Shown By Rapidly Formed Rock Layers Spread Across Vast Areas

Rapidly Deposited Sediment Layers Spread Across Vast Areas

On every continent are found layers of sedimentary rocks over vast areas. Many of these sediment layers can be traced all the way across continents, and even between continents. Furthermore, when geologists look closely at these rocks, they find evidence that the sediments were deposited rapidly.

Consider the sedimentary rock layers exposed in the walls of the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona (Figure 2). This sequence of layers is not unique to that region of the USA. For more than 50 years geologists have recognized that these strata belong to six megasequences (very thick, distinctive sequences of sedimentary rock layers) that can be traced right across North America.1

The lowermost sedimentary layers in Grand Canyon are the Tapeats Sandstone, belonging to the Sauk Megasequence. It and its equivalents (those layers comprised of the same materials) cover much of the USA (Figure 3).

We can hardly imagine what forces were necessary to deposit such a vast, continent- wide series of deposits. Yet at the base of this sequence are huge boulders (Figure 4) and sand beds deposited by storms (Figure 5). Both are evidence that massive forces deposited these sediment layers rapidly and violently right across the entire USA. Slow-and-gradual (present-day uniformitarian) processes cannot account for this evidence, but the global catastrophic Genesis Flood surely can. 

Evidence For The Creation Model and For Speedy Evolution Process

Is there evidence for the creation model?

When God first created animals, he created them according to their kinds, with the ability to reproduce, and with instructions to increase in number and fill the earth (and seas; Genesis 1:20–22, 24–28). After the Flood, land animals and birds that had been preserved on the Ark again reproduced to fill the earth (Genesis 8:15–19).

Historically, evolutionists have told us that changes in living things occur at a slow, deliberate pace. Yet the creation model clearly requires that significant changes be able to occur quite rapidly, if necessary, as animals multiply and fill the earth. Today we see animals that have adapted to a variety of different environments and niches. Is there any scientific evidence that animals can adapt so quickly? Indeed there is!

Exposing The Flaws Of Traditional (But Faulty) Evolutionary Teaching But Giving Strong Evidence For A Creator and Creational Evolution PART 2

This article makes little sense until you have first read Part 1, which gives the background and strong evidence for the equal evidence that follows. Assuming you have read part 1,  here is Part 2

Exposing The Flaws Of Traditional (But Faulty) Evolutionary Teaching But Giving Strong Evidence For A Creator and Creational Evolution PART 1

PART 1.  for continuation please see part 2 on  Exposing The Flaws Of Traditional (But Faulty) Evolutionary Teaching But Giving Strong Evidence For A Creator and Creational Evolution PART 2  
Let me start by quoting something given by: Professor Jerome Lejeune, in a lecture given in Paris
on March 17, 1985, translated by Peter Wilders

“We have no acceptable theory of evolution at the present time. There is none; and I cannot accept the theory that I teach to my students each year. Let me explain. I teach the synthetic theory known as the neo-Darwinian one, for one reason only; not because it’s good, we know it is bad, but because there isn’t any other. Whilst waiting to find something better you are taught something which is known to be inexact, which is a first approximation …”

What Is Being Taught., You Will Learn
Textbooks present evolution in two different ways—small, observable changes (natural selection, speciation, adaptation) and large, unobservable changes (molecules-to-man evolution). They show evidence for the former and then conclude that this proves that the latter took place as well.

As our understanding of genetics has improved, it has become increasingly clear that mutations + time + chance do not equal evolution. All observed mutations demonstrate a loss of genetic information from the genetic code, or they are neutral.

Evolution claims that the process has no direction or goal. If you look at the complexity of the “first” organism, it must be accepted that a massive amount of information has been produced to explain the variety of life we see today.

Mutations cannot generate new genetic information; so they cannot be used to explain how evolution has proceeded from a cell with less information than is present in modern cells.

Evidence That Global Conditions (After Noah's Flood) Led To Ice Age

What Was the Post-Flood World Like?

The Flood of Noah’s day was the greatest catastrophe in earth history, and it involved much more than rain. It reshaped the surface of the earth, spawning massive volcanoes and earthquakes that dwarf anything observed in modern times. Such a tremendous catastrophe would have radically altered the earth’s climate, resulting in an Ice Age.

In general terms, an “ice age” is a time of extensive glacial activity that covers a relatively large area with ice. During the Ice Age, which ended a few thousand years ago, 30% of the land surface of the earth was covered by ice. In North America an ice sheet covered almost all of Canada and the northern United States.Today, only 10% of the earth’s surface is covered by ice.

We know the extent of the Ice Age because the glaciers left features on the landscape similar to features we observe around glaciers today, such as lateral and terminal moraines. A “lateral moraine” is a mound of rocks of varying sizes deposited to the side of a moving glacier, and a “terminal” or “end” moraine is a mound of rocks dumped in front of the glacier.

Two particular aspects of the Flood were instrumental in causing the Ice Age: (1) extensive volcanic activity during and after the Flood, and (2) the warm oceans following the Flood.  

Astronomical Evidence For Creation and a Young Universe

More evidence against the atheistic evolutionists who are trying to put a blindfold on the world by distorting and hiding the actual truth or denying the facts. They make massive assumptions about evolution but ignore the evidence which suggests the evolutionary process could have been far different to how they present it.  It is all a hoax led by satan to prevent people trusting in Jesus for the salvation of their souls. Please watch - very interesting!!!!

There is a series of videos. Please watch the first one and then follow instructions for watching the other 8, ie 9 videos. All very very good!

Note from John Chingford:
The purpose of this article is to show that you cannot trust the lies/exaggerations of evolutionists who never tell us that their estimations are theory. They always tell us these things (including timescales) as if they were facts - i.e. deliberately concealing/withholding truth is lying!

With every new discovery if declared honestly, reveal that the Bible is true and far more reliable in its details than mere men who try to figure things out with imperfect and finite minds. When the Bible is shown to be true, it then SHOULD impact us to trust in the God who effectively dictated to men what to write in the Bible and therefore realise that God knows about His Universe infinitely more than what we think.

Please read this article which proves why the Bible can be trusted and why it IS indeed the Word Of God.

Evidence That Neandertal Men and Cavemen Lived In Bible Times and were human

I have included 3 articles here. 2 about Neandertal Man and one about cavemen. These articles give evidence and support that these men actually lived within Bible times during the ice-age, which followed shortly after  the global Noah’s flood. The Ice-age was probably caused by the flood.

The ice-age would have occurred quite soon after the global Noah’s flood) when the dispersion took place of mankind throughout the Earth,after God divided the tongues at Babel.

The articles are: “The Caring Neandertal”, “Neandertal Man, the changing picture” and "were cavemen really Primitive?". These were all found on Answers in Genesis website.

Evidence That Adam and Noah Really Did Live over 900 Years of Age

This article will show through many sources why it is reasonable and scientific to believe that Adam etc did really live for almost 1000 years.

Did People Like Adam and Noah Really Live over 900 Years of Age?

Preview chapter from The New Answers Book
by Dr. David Menton and Dr. Georgia Purdom
June 4, 2008

“Methusaleh lived 900 years . . . but these stories you’re liable to read in the Bible, they ain’t necessarily so.”1

Along with American composer George Gershwin, many people find it difficult to believe that Methuselah lived to be 969 years old. 

Nevertheless, the Bible teaches quite plainly that the early patriarchs often lived to be nearly 1,000 years old and even had children when they were several hundred years old! Similar claims of long life spans are found in the secular literature of several ancient cultures (including the Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Indians, and Chinese). But even a life span of nearly 1,000 years is sadly abbreviated when we consider that God initially created us to live forever.

According to the Bible, God created the first humans—Adam and Eve—without sin and with the ability to live forever. God gave the first human couple everything they needed for their eternal health and happiness in the Garden of Eden; but He warned them not to eat fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil or they would die, as indeed would all their descendants after them (Genesis 2:16–17).

When Satan’s deception prompted Eve to disobey this command and then Adam willfully disobeyed, their minds and bodies profoundly changed (Genesis 3). Not only did they become subject to death, but their firstborn child (Cain) became the world’s first murderer. Truly, the wages of sin is death, physically and spiritually. It is sobering to think that the Bible would have been

Why Dinosaurs Do Not Disprove, But Actually Prove the Bible

The cartoon series "The Flintstones" is probably a lot more accurate than Scientists (with ulterior motives) have deceitfully brainwashed us into believing. They deliberately cloud over certain evidence that should inform us differently. For example, caves have been found with drawings of dinosaurs (more on that within this article). If dinosaurs did not live alongside man, how would they be able to draw those images? How would they know what dinosaurs looked like and yet these images are very good likenesses.

Here is an excellent article from Answers In Genesis (a creationist/scientist organisation) which goes into the whole subject in much more detail (notice the section on evidence that dinosaurs are mentioned in quite a number of places within the bible and the evidence that they are much younger than we are told), as follows:

Dinosaurs are used more than almost anything else to indoctrinate children and adults in the idea of millions of years of earth history. However, the Bible gives us a framework for explaining dinosaurs in terms of thousands of years of history, including the mystery of when they lived and what happened to them. Two key texts are Genesis 1:24–25 and Job 40:15–24.

Are Dinosaurs a Mystery?
Many think that the existence of dinosaurs and their demise is shrouded in such mystery that we may never know the truth about where they came from, when they lived, and what happened to them. However, dinosaurs are only a mystery if you accept the evolutionary story of their history.

According to evolutionists: Dinosaurs first evolved around 235 million years ago, long before man evolved.1 No human being ever lived with dinosaurs. Their history is recorded in the fossil layers on earth, which were deposited over millions of years. They were so successful as a group of animals that they eventually ruled the earth. However, around 65 million years ago, something happened to change all of this—the dinosaurs disappeared. Most evolutionists believe some sort of cataclysmic event, such as an asteroid impact, killed them. But many evolutionists claim that some dinosaurs evolved into birds, and thus they are not extinct but are flying around us even today.2

There is no mystery surrounding dinosaurs if you accept the Bible’s totally different account of dinosaur history.

According to the Bible: Dinosaurs first existed

How Carbon Dating Actually Prove Creation, A Young Earth and a Global Noah's Flood

Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth. Many people have been led to believe that radiometric dating methods have proved the earth to be billions of years old. This has caused many in the church to reevaluate the biblical creation account, specifically the meaning of the word “day” in Genesis 1.

With our focus on one particular form of radiometric dating—carbon dating—we will see that carbon dating strongly supports a young earth and reinforces the bible as accurate and true. Note that, contrary to a popular misconception, carbon dating is not used to date rocks at millions of years old.  

Evidence To Disprove the Evolution of Dinosaurs into Birds

Birds did not evolve from dinosaurs: what creationists have been pointing out for years is now buttressed by new research.
The notion that theropod dinosaurs evolved into birds has almost certainly become one of the most widely accepted “facts” of evolution. The question for many evolutionary researchers had transitioned from “if” to “how.”1 Even artists’ depictions of some dinosaurs (such as velociraptors) began to include feathers.2 Except for a few notable critics, such as University of North Carolina paleobiologist Alan Feduccia, evolutionists seem to have all but agreed on birds’ dinosaurian origins.

Now, a new paper in the Journal of Morphology presents the research of two Oregon State University scientists who don’t agree with the evolutionary dogma on bird origins.3 Doctoral student Devon Quick conducted the investigation into bird breathing and its connection with dinosaur-to-bird evolution as part her dissertation.
