Are dragons real creatures?

UPDATED! There are a lot of references to dragons throughout history, but are dragons real? These creatures are probably based on real, living dinosaurs that are described correctly, or they have been described with the combined features of several dinosaurs, or they may be based on a real dinosaur with additional exaggerations. Written evidence from Europe and China…

The Star of Bethlehem

There is a lot of star and planet information for that period in history, could any of it be the Star of Bethlehem? Could it have been a conglomeration of planets that lead the Magi (Wise Men) to Bethlehem? 7 BC late May: First of 3 conjunctions (coming together) of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation Pisces (occurs only once every approximately 900 years other two in September and December)…

Gospels written too long after Jesus?

Were the Gospels written too long after Jesus? There have been several people who have said that the time between Jesus′ death and resurrection, and when the New Testament was written is a long time. But Donald Campbell’s story is a contemporary illustration: Donald Campbell is known for breaking world speed records, from 1955. Then in 1967 he died. So at the time of writing this article, it has been 37 years since his death. What would happen if someone said that Donald Campbell was just a myth…

Does Genesis fail scientific study? Day 1 Part 1

Let’s take a look at the sequence of events in the Biblical account of the creation of the world and ask “Does Genesis fail scientific study?” Is there is any science behind it. God made the earth, firstly without any vegetation, or inhabitants. It was a sphere consisting of one huge ocean, presumably, spinning on its axis, in dark, empty space…

Who can we trust?

As we go about our daily lives we get showered with other people’s opinions, which includes good and bad advice. But who to trust? ‘Experts’ tell us: what we should do, what we must avoid, and what is wrong and right. By sifting through all these things, we formulate our own opinions, and we give these different sources a certain amount of authority…

Scientists who believe in the Genesis creation account

There are many scientists who believe Genesis to be factually true and who are Christian. On the TV, radio, magazines and papers we are regularly reminded – sometimes in very subtle ways – that science disproves Christianity, and that scientists are atheists. But this is not true. There are hundreds of scientists now, who do not believe in Darwin’s theory of Evolution…

Scientific Genesis? Days 2 and 3 Part 2

Scientific Genesis? How does the Bible deal with the creation of the atmosphere and the appearance of the land. Before scientists told us all the facts about the earth’s atmosphere, we may never have realised how important this invisible stuff really is! We now know how hostile space is, therefore the earth’s atmosphere is incredibly important to our survival…

Is Genesis scientific? Day 4 Part 3

Now we come to Day 4 of Creation in the Bible, so Is Genesis scientific? But we come to the most illogical verses – for the human brain. God NOW saw it fit to mention the Sun, moon, planets, and stars AFTER light had appeared on day 1 of Creation! But everyone knows that the Sun provides us with energy, heat and light. Even the most uncivilised and backward tribes know that the Sun provides us with heat and light… 

Genesis and science Day 5 and 6 Part 4

When we look at Genesis and science does it stand up? There is a very important phrase that is repeated 10 times throughout the Creation account, and that is “according to their kinds”.
Plants, trees, water creatures, birds, land creatures, animals, livestock, everything was “according to their kinds” (according to their species).
God designed and made…

Creation or Evolution do we have to choose?

I heard a young person say the other day that if anybody didn’t believe that Evolution was right must be bonkers. Does it matter? Creation or Evolution; do we believe that God made mankind and the animals as separate, individual species, or do we believe that everything came from single celled organisms?…
