Oh, My Stars! - Creation Today

Oh, My Stars! Season 3 Episode 18

Big Bang theorists suggest it is possible to see stars being born in the so-called ‘star forming regions’. In this episode, Eric and Paul deconstruct an article on star formation using the ‘fuzzy words analysis’ method. After removing what the author believes is taking place, there is little real science remaining. Watch how easy it is for you to uncover the faith-based statements masquerading as science in this week’s episode of Creation Today.

Mind the Gap (Theory) - Creation Today

Mind the Gap Season 3 Episode 17

After decreasing popularity for many years, the Gap Theory is once again gaining momentum among churches. It teaches that a long period of time elapsed between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, during which Satan fell, pre-Adamic humanoids roamed the Earth, and in which God sent an early flood to start the re-creation of the world in six literal days. Eric and Paul show from scripture that the Gap Theory is not possible and not biblical, maintaining that the plain reading of Scripture – a single week of God’s creative action – is the correct way to understand Genesis 1.

Did God Design Parasites? - Creation Today with Frank Sherwin

Did God Design Parasites? – Season 3 Episode 15

Eric and Paul’s special guest on this week’s show is ICR speaker and researcher Frank Sherwin. Frank discusses a wide range of research issues, including where parasitic behavior came from. Parasitic behavior would not have existed in the world that God designed, before Adam’s sin, and therefore these behaviors must have developed from ‘legitimate’ behaviors created by God.
