During his academic years, Lee Strobel became convinced that God was obsolete, a belief that colored his journalism career. Science had made the idea of a Creator irrelevant–or so Strobel thought.
But today science points in a different direction. A diverse and impressive body of research has increasingly supported the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. At the same time, Darwinism has faltered in the face of concrete facts and hard reason. Has science discovered God? At the very least, it’s giving faith an immense boost, as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of our universe.
What happens when an evolutionary biologist is overwhelmed with scientific evidences of God’s plan in nature?
After three years of trying to “prove evolution” to skeptical professors in his science department, Gary Parker finally realized that the scientific evidence we see in God’s world agrees with what we read in God’s Word.
In Creation Facts of Life, Dr. Parker respectfully describes the evidences he once used to “preach” evolution – but then he explains how the “rest of the evidence” points away from evolution and toward a perfect world created by God, ruined by man, restored to new life in Christ! In easy-to-follow conversational style, Dr. Parker discusses:
* DNA and genetics * Life Before birth * Mutations * Adaptations * Natural Selection * Fossils * The Geologic Column * The Grand Canyon
In the ongoing Creation vs. Evolution debate, a surprising number of legitimate scientists are embracing the Genesis explanation of origins. The creation/evolution question is not merely a trivial issue that concerns only biologists on the one hand or religious people on the other. This issue permeates every field of academic study and every aspect of life. Everyone is affected and everyone should know the facts.
What is Creation Science? presents the scientific evidence for both creation and evolution leaving out any religious or philosophical arguments. Co-authors, Dr. Henry Morris and Dr. Gary Parker, are both former evolutionists whose convictions were changed after thorough study. In this text, Dr. Morris provides a detailed scientific explanation of creation and evolution in the area of physics and cosmology while Dr. Parker reveals the facts in the areas of biology and paleontology.
Dinosaur footprints are found in numerous locations around the world, on every continent. Typically they are found in strata that evolutionists identify as representing “dinosaur era” time, so their discovery isn’t surprising to them. Creationists, however, insist that fossil-bearing strata were primarily deposited during the great Flood of Noah’s day, and label the dinosaur fossils and footprint layers as coming from mid to late-flood episodes within that Flood.
A recent discovery of about 3,000 dinosaur tracks was announced from China. Here, tracks from creatures of several different species, sizes, lifestyles, and presumably habitats indicate they were all stampeding in the same direction. The researchers ask, “What were they all running from?” The carnivores couldn’t have been pursuing the herbivores, because the footprints are intermingled. And what was chasing the carnivores?
This revolutionary book has already opened the eyes of thousands of Christians showing why the traditional methods of evangelism are not reaching today’s humanistic, evolutionized culture. By applying proven soul-winning methods as found in the Scriptures, this book will revolutionize your witnessing. Why not encourage your pastors to read it, too?
The evidence of creation presented here is entertaining, educational and easy to understand. At times, it presents a humorous look at the predicament in which evolution finds itself trying to explain that which only God can do.
Man has always been highly intelligent. From startling ancient inventions to maps, ziggurats, and pyramids, your thinking about “ancient man” will never be the same!
Popular culture has led us to believe that ancient man was primitive, originating from primates and steadily improving through a process of time and chance. But does that agree with reality? What does the evidence left behind from past cultures tell us? Was ancient man simple and primitive as we have been taught, or did the level of science and technology existing thousands of years ago rival–or even surpass–the level of ours today in the 21st century?
In The Puzzle of Ancient Man, Dr. Chittick examines more details of technology, evidence of ancient machine power, and optical technology possessed by ancient people. Examine what the facts say about ancient man–facts that have long gone unnoticed and often times ignored by today’s secular culture.
What would happen if we found something that radically challenged the now-accepted wisdom of evolution? In Darwin’s Black Box, Michael Behe argues that evidence of evolution’s limits has been right under our noses — but it is so small that we have only recently been able to see it. The field of biochemistry, begun when Watson and Crick discovered the double-helical shape of DNA, has unlocked the secrets of the cell. There, biochemists have unexpectedly discovered a world of Lilliputian complexity. As Behe engagingly demonstrates, using the examples of vision, bloodclotting, cellular transport, and more, the biochemical world comprises an arsenal of chemical machines, made up of finely calibrated, interdependent parts. For Darwinian evolution to be true, there must have been a series of mutations, each of which produced its own working machine, that led to the complexity we can now see. The more complex and interdependent each machine’s parts are shown to be, the harder it is to envision Darwin’s gradualistic paths. Behe surveys the professional science literature and shows that it is completely silent on the subject, stymied by the elegance of the foundation of life. Could it be that there is some greater force at work?
Michael Behe is not a creationist. He believes in the scientific method, and he does not look to religious dogma for answers to these questions. But he argues persuasively that biochemical machines must have been designed — either by God, or by some other higher intelligence.
Joanne De Jonge presents a wealth of little-known facts about fascinating plants and highlights each subject’s unique place in creation. The Rustling Grass reveals how plants, in fact, do more than rustle. A skunk cabbage makes its own heat, a chestnut tree fights battles, a passion plant begs for attention, a cattail pops open, and a cactus reaches out to touch someone. We discover that a tomato is actually a berry, and we learn that even poison ivy has its good points. Most importantly, De Jonge’s exploration continually makes evident the movement of God through all of His rustling creation.
