Creation: When Were the Stars Made?

In the previous post, I pointed out several clues in the text of the Genesis creation narratives themselves that the "days" of creation are in fact much longer periods of time. Today, I'm going to show that the biggest difficulty creationists actually have in the creation narratives is actually a vital clue which makes a …

Creation: A Matter of Days

Andy Doerksen posted a response to my last article which ties so nicely into what I was planning to write anyway that I'm going to use it as my jumping-off point for this post. In response to me pointing out that the ancients knew only the part of the universe that they could see with …

Genesis: Creation and Context

In my previous post, I laid out a positive, scientific argument for a Creator entity that looks remarkably like the God of the Bible. However, there will be some Christians, particularly Evangelicals, who wouldn't be entirely happy with that case. Why? Because it depends on the modern cosmology that says that the universe is nearly …

Finding God Through Science

Prophecy in the New Testament – 1st Through 3rd Principles in the “Voice in Ramah”

Understanding the history behind geographic locations is often key to understanding a prophecy. This post has been a bit delayed, in part because of the elections (which I've commented on elsewhere, but don't intend to on this blog), and in part because it's taken me a while to figure out how best to attack Matthew 2:16-18: …

The Last Trump: My New Podcast

So I've finally gone and done it. I've finally started a podcast. May God have mercy on my soul. Basically, Johnny McMahon of the ever-goofy, ever-fun Iron Show, where I've been more or less a permanent guest for the last couple of years, needed a break. Also, to be wisked away to a secure location …
