Flood theology: why does Noah’s Flood matter? (2)

Continued from Flood theology part 1 Noah’s Flood has a pivotal place in the central themes of the Bible. That it was a universal rather than local flood is demonstrated by its central place in the Bible’s storyline. The second coming of Christ involves final judgement, but it is more than this — it…

Prayer and birdwatching

Prayer and watching birds may not seem obvious activities to combine, but for me as a Christian who enjoys watching birds, there are special occasions when they do. Afterwards, I am left with memories of special moments when I felt in awe of God and especially thankful of his love.

Cedar of Lebanon

In this article, we are looking not so much at trees themselves, as sourcing the wood for Solomon’s great temple, and also seeing what we can learn from a discovery 30 years ago. This discovery was the substantial remains of a first century fishing boat, in the mud of the Sea of Galilee. Boats…

Back to the beginning

To many professing Christians, the view that the first few chapters of Genesis record true history is akin to believing a fairy tale. Rather than accept the account of creation and human history affirmed by Christ and his apostles, they choose instead to embrace the teaching of atheists and God-haters. For instance, despite the…

Naturalism’s tightening grip on education and science

Within the UK, we have a large number of vocal and influential people who want to exclude all expressions of biblical Christianity from education, whether state-funded or independent. Their first target is to banish the concept of creation and replace it with the exclusive teaching of evolutionary theory. These crusaders present themselves as speaking…

Was Noah’s Ark big enough?

One of the annoying aspects of so many accounts of Noah and the great flood is the ridiculous pictures that are used to represent the ark. One aspect of the current film that is more biblical is the fact that the ark is very big. A recent investigation by four physics students at Leicester…

Esoteric evolution – an overview (1)

This article is an abstract of a thesis. It provides an overview of evolution as a cosmological and metaphysical paradigm that seamlessly unites science with ‘spirituality’, in a manner that corrupts the truth. Evolution is more than an alternative to the creation story. Evolution is not just a scientific concept; it is a spiritual…

‘New doors open’

These were the words of a leading scientist, as he unveiled dozens of new species to a watching world last year. A purring monkey, a vegetarian piranha and a colourful lizard, too shy to fight, were among the latest discoveries of rare and endangered species, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Last year…

Can faith and science work together?

How should we cope with apparent conflicts between faith and science? This issue was faced by Dr Ming Wang while investigating wound-healing in eyes. This account is adapted from his speech at the American Scientific Affiliation’s annual conference, on 20 July 2013, at Belmont University, Nashville, TN (www.thecollegefix.com/post/14052). I would like to share a…

The myth of neutrality

Those seeking to secularise society often claim that their position is the most reasonable, because it is the only one that’s neutral — the only one free from influences arising from religious beliefs. Prominent among these is Jonathan Miller, who rejects the label ‘atheist’, describing himself simply as a ‘disbeliever’. This, of course, implies…

Pseudoscience and the stifling of debate -What promoters of climate change and evolution have in common

Much effort is currently being expended to persuade the general public that lavish investment in ‘green energy’ (such as wind farms) is vital for our planet’s future and is also scientifically justified.       My purpose here is not to argue for or against the claims of pro-climate-change scientists and politicians, but to look at…

Eden zoo

Adam was the world’s first ‘taxonomist’. A taxonomist is a person who seeks to organise all the living organisms into a logical system. As well as the task of serving and guarding the Garden of Eden, Adam had the great task of naming all the animals and birds. Eden became the first zoo. Taxonomy…
