Over 35 years of ministry, I have found many Christians have a problem with dinosaurs. Are dinosaurs mentioned in the Bible, or do they represent evil? Is it not true that dinosaurs are old and walked on earth at least 65 million years ago, long before humans came into existence?
Most people do not realize it, but over 90% of dating results point to a young earth. However, evolution rejects the 90% and only acknowledges the 10%. In one year, 21,000 carbon-14 specimens were submitted and 19,000 were rejected. Only 2,000 were considered accurate by evolutionist. Why?
We stand up tall on two legs with two arms on our sides unlike any other animal on earth. Humans are unique in so many ways when it comes to anatomy. Evolutionary biology points to the chimpanzee as our nearest relative. Yet, for a chimp to be bipedal - walking on two legs like a human - every bone of its body would have to change to walk upright. There must be significant changes in order to form a new
This might be reasonable if we somehow knew (by divine revelation, perhaps) that evolution were really true. But, as a matter of fact, the only real evidence for evolution is this same fossil record! And this is where we came in! The zeal with which this evolutionary circle of reasoning is guarded is seen clearly in the approach taken with respect to its problems and contradictions. When radioactive mineral age determinations conflict with the paleontology dating (as they frequently do), they
Fossilization is a process of preservation of once living life forms by a variety of different processes. The most well known types of fossilization are permineralization and carbonization or distillation. Certain parameters must be met in order for fossils to form. They are a rapid death and fast burial in relatively anaerobic conditions. Any prolonged exposure to the elements will decrease the chances of fossilization.
This is an easy one. They died! Actually, this question is a very good one. In school we are told that "millions and millions of years ago" all the dinosaurs died out. We are told that they lived long before man first entered the equation. And yet, the Bible tells a far different story. The Bible tells us that God created all the animals during the six days of the creation week. Therefore, we have a problem here. These two views
Yes, I intentionally used a grammatically incorrect figure of speech for the title of this article. And no, I did not think it was inappropriate given the topic being considered. For those who are not up to speed concerning such matters, the fossil record has long been used to support Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. This continues even though everything in the fossil record appears abruptly, fully-formed, without clearly delineated precursors or transitional fossils appearing therein.
When Charles Darwin first published On the Origin of Species in 1859, he was certain that the fossil record would eventually substantiate his theory. After all, if Darwin was correct, there should be a continuum of organisms beginning with the simplest life form and eventually progressing into every other type of creature. One by one, certain fossils were discovered and proclaimed by those who supported Darwin’s theory to be “missing links.”
Crime scene evidence is extremely important. A skillful detective can use fingerprints, DNA, clothing fibers, etc., to recreate the crime and identify the perpetrator. Our legal system also relies on evidence. The law defines evidence as ‘material objects and verbal statements admissible at trial’.
