Noah's Flood - Washing Away Millions of Years | Origins with Dr. Terry Mortenson




Dr. Mortenson of Answers in Genesis shows how many things thought to have taken millions of years to form by anti-biblical scientists could actually have formed very quickly in the global flood of Genesis. The geologic features and remnants of the global flood can be seen all around the world.

Systematic Theology, History of Geology
Lecturer/Researcher, AiG (USA)
Information on his book, The 19th Century Scriptural Geologists

Biography

Like most people, Dr. Mortenson grew up in an education system that taught evolution as fact. During his first year at the University of Minnesota (where he majored in math) and shortly after becoming a Christian, he began to see the fallacy of the idea of millions of years of evolution. With a Ph.D. in the history of geology from the University of Coventry in England and an M.Div. from TrinityEvangelical Divinity School in Chicago, Dr. Mortenson has lectured on the creation-evolution controversy in 18 countries since the late 1970s. He has spoken in homes, churches, schools (primary, middle and secondary), secular universities, Bible colleges and seminaries. Several of his popular lectures have been produced as DVDs and as TV programs. He has also participated in seven formal debates with Ph.D. evolutionary scientists in secular venues in four countries.
He is the author of numerous magazine and journal articles and several book chapters. The revised version of his PhD thesis was published as The Great Turning Point: the Church’s Catastrophic Mistake on Geology—Before Darwin (Master Books, 2004). With a deep burden for seminary professors and students, he co-edited and contributed two chapters to the scholarly 14-author book,Coming to Grips with Genesis: Biblical Authority and the Age of the Earth (Master Books, 2008). He is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, has presented six creation-related papers at ETS annual meetings, and spear-headed the formation of the “Creation Consultation” sessions at the ETS annual meeting beginning in 2008. He has also helped to lead two by-invitation-only 7-day rafts trips down the Colorado River through Grand Canyon for seminary and Bible College professors and other key Christian leaders. He and his wife, Margie, have been happily married since 1976 and have eight children and three grandchildren.

The 19th Century Scriptural Geologists

In the first half of the 19th century, there were a number of Christian writers who raised Biblical, logical and geological objections to old-earth theories and to the reinterpretations of Scripture to harmonize with them. These men became known as the ‘Scriptural geologists,’ and were the focus of my Ph.D. research. The articles hyperlinked below outline the lives and key arguments of the Scriptural geologists. More detail can be found in my Ph.D. thesis, and many of its chapters have been republished in recent issues of TJ (above; and some are available online).

Dating Methods/Man and Dinosaurs | Complete Creation, 2nd Ed., Part 8 - Ian Juby



Part 8: Dating Methods/Man and Dinosaurs
Ian shows how the "absolute" dating methods used on rocks aren't so absolute - in fact the whole system is fraught with error from beginning to end.  To finish off the idea of deep time and an old earth, Ian then introduces the compelling evidence that man and dinosaurs lived together and man has been around since the beginning of time.

Evolution & the Wages of Sin - Dr. John D. Morris



Evolution and the Wages of Sin

Dr. E.O. Wilson, Harvard entomology professor and chief spokesperson for the field of evolutionary sociobiology, and bitter enemy of Biblical Christianity, has for decades written insightful articles supporting his viewpoint. Several years ago, he explained his own background and how he came to his present stand.

"As were many persons from Alabama, I was a born-again Christian. When I was fifteen, I entered the Southern Baptist Church with great fervor and interest in the fundamentalist religion, I left at seventeen when I got to the University of Alabama and heard about evolutionary theory." (E.O. Wilson, "Toward a Humanistic Biology"; The Humanist, September/October, 1982; p. 40).
Interestingly enough, many of the leading anti-Christian voices in this country today come from Christian homes. They know, perhaps better than many Christians, that evolution and Biblical Christianity are incompatible—irreconcilable world views, as has been pointed out many times on these pages. In this article, the point at which evolution and Christianity most seriously conflict will be explored.

Whatever else evolution may be, it requires tremendous lengths of time. According to evolution, single-celled organisms underwent spontaneous generation from non-living chemicals some three billion or more years ago. Multi-cellular life arose about a billion years ago, with fish appearing about 500 million years ago. Dinosaurs flourished from about 230 to 65 million years ago, after which time mammals began to rule the earth. Man descended from ape-like creatures within the last three million years.

But evolution also involved death. Organisms have been living and dying for eons in the "struggle for existence," with natural selection allowing the "survival of the fittest" while insuring the extinction of the less fit. For instance, it was the extinction of the dinosaurs which allowed the mammals to dominate and eventually lead to man's emergence. All of this multi-billion-year "history" is recorded in the fossil record, where remains of multiplied trillions of dead things are entombed in rocks supposedly dating from times long before man. As Carl Sagan wrote, "The secrets of evolution are death and time—the deaths of enormous numbers of life forms that were imperfectly adapted to the environment; and time for a long succession of small mutations that were by accident adaptive, time for the slow accumulation of patterns of favorable mutations" Cosmos, 1980, p. 3.

In other words, death plays a prominent part in evolution. In fact, to an evolutionist, death is normal, death is good, death provides the fuel for evolutionary change; death produced man. Charles Darwin, in the very last paragraph of his treatise, Origin of Species, after explaining his proposal of evolution by natural selection, and after championing the concepts of extinction and bloodshed as the mechanism for evolution, wrote his conclusion:

"Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals [i.e. man, ed.] directly follows."
In other words, death is the natural order of things, and death brought man into existence.
But how does the Christian religion understand death? As recorded in the Bible, just a few thousand years ago God wrote with His finger on a tablet of stone (so we couldn't misunderstand) to inform us that "in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day" (Exodus 20:11), thereby providing a model for our work week (the Fourth Commandment). No time is found here for billions of years of evolution (see Impact No. 184), only a rapid, supernatural creation.

Furthermore, things were quite different in the original creation. Evidently, man and all animals possessing true life in the Biblical sense (with the "breath of life," with blood in which is "the life of the flesh," with consciousness not present in the plants and perhaps certain of the invertebrate animals) were created to live forever. There was to be no carnivorous activity by man (Genesis 1:29) nor animal, for "to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given them every green herb for food: And it was so" (v. 30). No meat eating, no bloodshed, no death for any "living" thing in the original creation.
Mankind, especially, was created to live forever. Adam and Eve were created "in the image of God" (Genesis 1:27), the holy, sinless, eternal, deathless Life-giver. That image is now marred by sin, but originally it was not so, for the Creator called all in that world "very good" (v. 31), and placed in it the Tree of Life (Genesis 2:9). What sort of world could the God of the Bible call "very good"? At the very least, the original world must have been far different from our present one.

God did place in that world an opportunity for both man and woman to prove their obedience to their Creator and return His love. As Creator, He established (and only because He was Creator did He have the authority to establish) the rules for proper conduct, as well as the penalty for disobedience. He declared, "Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Genesis 2:17).

The lie of Satan, however, has always included the idea that there is no penalty for sin. In tempting Eve to disobey, "the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die" (Genesis 3:4). As we know, the lie was believed, the penalty for sin denied, and sin entered the world. But even though the authority of the Creator was disputed and ignored, that authority remained, and He acted in His holy justice. The resultant curse on all of creation was the curse of death, and touched not only mankind—"for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return" (Genesis 3:19)—but the animals (v. 14), the plants (v. 18), and even the earth itself (v. 17). At that point, the "creation was made subject to vanity (or futility)"—the "bondage of corruption." Indeed, "the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Romans 8:20,21,22).

Note that it was "by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin" (Romans 5:12). This death not only entails spiritual death, but also physical death, as is made abundantly clear in the classic passage dealing with the physical resurrection of the dead. "For since by man came death, by Man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive" (I Corinthians 15:21-22). If Adam's sin did not bring physical death, Christ's resurrection from physical death does not bring eternal life.

It is obvious then, that death is very important to the Christian world view. Death is the result of the entrance of sin into the world. But it is much more than that, for it is also the atonement for sin—the just payment for sin. The first death recorded in Scripture occurred when God, Himself, slaughtered animals to provide a covering for sin—the clothing for Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:21). Later, we see that the system of blood sacrifices for sin had been instituted, for God accepted Abel's animal sacrifice while rejecting Cain's bloodless sacrifice (Genesis 4:3-5; Hebrews 4:4). As developed in both Old and New Testaments, "without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin" (Hebrews 9:22, see also Leviticus 17:11, etc.).

Thus we can see that God was not only acting in His justice in pronouncing the curse of death for sin, but in His grace, as well. For, by establishing the penalty for sin to be death, He made it possible for Him to send His beloved Son to come and die to pay the ultimate penalty for sin as a substitute. The "wages of sin" may be death, but "Christ died for our sins" (I Corinthians 15:4). Only the holy Creator, the righteous Judge, could be the sinless Substitute.

Evolution and the Bible most seriously conflict at this point (their respective views of death, which are central to each viewpoint). If evolution (or even just the concept of an old earth, with death and fossils predating man's sin) is correct, then death is natural, death is normal, death produced man. Most importantly, in this view, death is not the penalty for sin, for it preceded man and his sin. But if death is not the penalty for sin, then the death of Jesus Christ did not pay that penalty, nor did His resurrection from the dead provide eternal life.

While belief in creation and the young earth may not be essential for salvation (many Christians wrongly believe and do many things the Bible teaches against), if evolution is right, if the earth is old, if fossils date from before man's sin, then Christianity is wrong! These ideas destroy the foundation for the Gospel and negate the work of Christ on the cross. Evolution and salvation are mutually exclusive concepts.

Many times evolutionists understand this issue better than Christians. In his article, "The Meaning of Evolution," atheist G. Richard Bozarth claims that "Christianity has fought, still fights and will fight science to the desperate end over evolution, for evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus' earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin, and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the son of God. Take away the meaning of his death. If Jesus was not the redeemer who died for our sins, and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing" (American Atheist, September 20, 1979, p. 30).
Thus the issues of death and time reveal the utter incompatibility of evolution, in any form, with Christianity.

But the story doesn't end there. The Bible reveals not only the origin of death, but how this issue will one day be resolved.

There will come a time when this world, so marred by the effects of sin and death, including fossils and graveyards "shall melt with fervent heat, the earth and the works that are therein shall be burned up.... Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" (II Peter 3:10,13).

The ultimate victory over death will then be realized. "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: For the former things are passed away" (Revelation 21:4). In our eternal, deathless home, we will have continual access to "the Tree of Life.... And there shall be no more curse" (Revelation 22:2,3).

This, then, is the message of Creation! Far more than the origin of species and the age of rocks, it is the big picture—the work of Jesus Christ from eternity past to eternity future. As Sovereign Creator, and only because He is Creator, He had the authority to set the rules and the penalty for disobedience, and to judge that disobedience. But as Creator, and only because He is Creator, could He redeem the fallen creation under the guidelines He had established.

And only as the Creator—the Author of Life—could He arise from the dead of His own accord. Then, as Creator, Judge, and victorious Redeemer, He alone is worthy to take the throne of the universe and reign in righteousness.

"Thou are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: For Thou hast created all things" (Revelation 4:11).

Bible Earthquakes | Origins with Dr. Steve Austin




http://www.ctvn.org/archive.asp | Bible Earthquakes with Dr. Steve Austin

Biography

Dr. Steve Austin is a field research geologist with a Ph.D. in geology.  His quest to understand the sedimentary processes that formed rocks and fossils has launched explorations onto six of the world's seven continents. His research adventures have taken him by helicopter into the crater of Mount St. Helens volcano, by bush plane onto glaciers in the high mountains of Alaska, by raft through the entire Grand Canyon, on horseback into the high Sierra, by elevator into the world's deepest coal mines, by SCUBA onto the Great Barrier Reef, by rail into the backcountry of Korea, by canoe into coastal swamps of Australia, by foot onto barren plateaus of southern Argentina, and by ATV into remote archaeological digs of the Middle East.  He likes to climb high mountain peaks.  Lightning, mudflows, avalanches, volcanic eruptions, boiling creeks, quicksand, flash floods, blizzards, crocodiles, and venomous snakes are all hazards he has experienced during his quests.

Geology students know Dr. Austin for his extraordinary field trips and field teaching events.  With students he has launched 22 raft trips through Grand Canyon.  Dr. Austin's field research within Grand Canyon includes over 400 nights (one year) camped out below the Canyon's rim. While advising a Ph.D. candidate on a geology project 15 years ago, he started mapping large squid fossils within a limestone stratum of Grand Canyon.  Now he has mapped the squid-bearing limestone layer a distance of 200 miles through Grand Canyon to Las Vegas.  One paleontologist said, "Dr. Austin has seen more large fossil squid than anyone else on Earth."  Dr. Austin is well known for field research and field trips at Mount St. Helens, and he produced a DVD illustrating these adventures.  Dead Sea sediment in Israel and Jordan are revealing the sequence of earthquakes mentioned in the Bible.  Laminated Dead Sea sediment shows earthquake disturbances, the one assignable to 33 AD is likely the earthquake at the crucifixion of Christ.  Working with archaeologists in Israel and Jordan, Dr. Austin believe he has found the lost cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.  In southern Argentina, Dr Austin has retraced the 1834 route of Charles Darwin and the crew of HMS Beagle on the journey up the Santa Cruz River.    

He is the author of three books, three videos, one computer software package, and more than forty technical geology papers.

Dr. Austin teaches geology at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio, and is Senior Research Geologist with Logos Research Associates, Costa Mesa, California.  He is also President of Austin Research Consulting, Inc, and President of Creation Geology Society.

Dr. Steve Austin is married to Kelly M. Austin, M.D.  Dr. Kelly Austin teaches surgery at University of Pittsburgh, and she is Director of the Pediatric Advanced Critical Care Fellowship at Children's Hospital Pittsburgh.

Bye-Bye, Big Bang | Creation Magazine Live




Description

One of the pillars of the Big Bang theory is that the light we see from objects far away has a higher redshift than closer objects. However, quasars with a very high redshift have been discovered in and near galaxies that have a low redshift. Richard Fangrad and Calvin Smith explain what this means for the Big Bang.

A Mature Creation - Dr. Ed Holroyd



http://denvercreation.org | Dr. Holroyd spoke on the topic "A Mature Creation", a review of Dr. Jerry Bergman's recent article in the Creation Research Society Quarterly Journal, promoting the idea that God did indeed create the universe in six days in recent times with the appearance of age at the May meeting of the Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship.

Dr. Holroyd is one of the founding members of RMCF. He has a B.S. in astrophysics, a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, and continuing education in geology.  In 2005 he retired from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation after 31 years of service as a research scientist studying weather and remote sensing. For more than 13 years he has been an adjunct professor at the University of Denver teaching graduate courses in remote sensing and digital image processing. Registrations for his popular online classes typically go to wait list in the first or second day.

In Six Days: Why Fifty Scientists Choose to Believe in CreationDr. Holroyd wrote one of the chapters in the book "In Six Days: Why 50 Scientists Choose to Believe in Creation".  He has been a tour guide at Dinosaur Ridge for the past 22 years, the only young-earth creationist regularly appearing there. His Biblical coin exhibit has been to five continents so far, and can be viewed by arrangement and at http://www.EdHolroyd.info/Biblicalcoins.

Other apologetic topics are also posted on his web site. In recent years he has quietly been doing supportive remote sensing research for other creation teams, including searches for Noah's Ark and for living dinosaurs. He has been to 27 nations on six continents. He is about to return to China for a fourth summer of teaching English to Chinese teachers of English.

Alien Intrusion - Gary Bates | 2011 Creation Super Conference

Alien Intrusion – Part 1




Surveys suggest that millions of people claim to have seen things in the sky that they believe to be alien craft. But is it even possible that highly advanced extraterrestrial beings could visit the earth from a galaxy far, far away? What is the biblical view about life on other planets? In this first lecture, Christian UFO specialist, Gary Bates, helps us lay a correct framework and to think critically and biblically about such popular cultural ideas. As such, it will help us discern the true nature of the phenomenon.

Alien Intrusion – Part 2




Why do people claim that they have been personally contacted or even abducted by entities claiming to be alien beings? What does this have to do with creation or evolution? From having met and counselled dozens of affected individuals, Gary reveals his unique and groundbreaking research that blows the lids off the whole UFO phenomenon. It's more worrying than most think, but not surprisingly, we find that the Bible has the answers.

Streaming: Download


Gary has been speaking on the creation/evolution issue since 1990. With a background in management and marketing, in 2002, he was invited to join the ministry full-time in Brisbane and eventually became its Head of Ministry. Much in demand for his popular lay talks on creation, Gary and his family relocated to America to serve as CEO of CMI-US. He was also elected to the position of CEO of CMI-Worldwide, CMI’s international Federation of ministries.

Once a convinced evolutionist, the Creation message had a dramatic impact on Gary's life. He is now a young-Earth creationist with a heart to communicate this life-changing information to the average ‘person in the street’.

Concerned about the tremendous interest in UFOs and associated extraterrestrial beliefs, Gary undertook specialist research in an attempt to solve this seemingly baffling phenomenon. This led to his Amazon.com top 50 bestseller Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection (the only Creationist book ever to achieve this feat). This landmark book provides biblical answers to the many puzzling questions regarding UFOs, and whether there is there intelligent, sentient alien life on other planets (our theological position on this is no. Please read the first article below for why). As a leading Christian authority in this area, Gary has travelled extensively around the world, speaking and conducting literally hundreds of interviews on radio, television and various media.

Creation Astronomy - Chris Ashcraft

Part 1





by Chris Ashcraft M.S., M.Ed., MTMS.

Chris W. AshcraftThis 2-part seminar by Chris Ashcraft was recorded at a meeting of the Creation Association of Puget Sound on June 9th &11th 2006. 
 
Description:
This presentation was designed to provide a general overview of creation astronomy / cosmology, and highlights important players and resources for future study.

The first half of the seminar takes a look at the purpose of the celestial bodies, and provides the Biblical foundation and physical proof for a young universe. The second half analyzes Big Bang cosmology and presents evidence which argues against this ideology, and shows how the data instead supports a creation cosmology. It is asserted that the Big Bang is inconsistent with the Biblical creation, and the Earth occupies a special place at the center of the cosmos.

Topics Include:
  • Design and Purpose
    Cosmos – When, Why, & How?
    Anthropic Principle
  • Evidence of young age
    Recession of the moon
    Comets
    Age of the sun
    Supernova remnants
  • Creation Cosmology vs. Big Bang
    Origin of Stars
    Origin of Planets
    Origin of Galaxies
    Redshift and Cosmology
    Resolving Distant Starlight
  • Concluding Comments

The Mystery of Coal | Origins with Dr. Steve Austin



http://blip.tv/origins/ | PhD geologist Steven Austin expounds on the evidence that COAL IS CREATED QUICKLY by catastrophic processes while DISPROVING the SWAMP idea on how coal is formed. This is more evidence for earth's young age, coinciding with the reality of the Bible.

Field and Sedimentary Geologist, Senior Research Associate


Dr. Steve Austin is a field research geologist with a Ph.D. from Penn State University in sedimentary geology. His research adventures have taken him by helicopter into the crater of Mount St. Helens volcano, by bush plane onto glaciers in the high mountains of Alaska, by raft through the entire Grand Canyon, on horseback into the high Sierra, by elevator into the world's deepest coal mines, by SCUBA onto the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, by rail into the backcountry of Korea, by foot onto barren plateaus of southern Argentina, and by four-wheel drive into remote desert areas of Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. He is the author of three books, three videos, one computer software package, and more than thirty technical geology papers.

Dr. Austin's field research within Grand Canyon includes over 400 nights camped out below the Canyon's rim. He has launched 22 raft trips within Grand Canyon. He has explored very remote areas of Grand Canyon by mule, helicopter and ATV. His book "Grand Canyon: Monument to Catastrophe" and his DVD "Grand Canyon: Monument to the Flood" summarize his investigations. He has over ten technical papers on Grand Canyon. Subjects of his technical publications on Grand Canyon include lava dams, breached dams, fossils, limestones, sandstones, basalts, diabase sills and radioisotope dating. He is widely known for his discovery of the regionally extensive mass-kill and burial bed within the Redwall Limestone about 2000 feet below the Canyon's rim.
