Dinosaurs and the Bible

Hello dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! Today’s episode is going to be a lot different than the previous ones. For starters, this one is just me, no co-host or guest to interview. I’m not sure how I stayed on track but if you want the blooper reel you’ll see that, well, it was a painful process. This time I decided to go with a topic that I absolutely love, which you’ll all know and remember if you’ve followed this blog for a long time. Dinosaurs! Ok, I went a lot further than just dinosaurs. But I mean, that’s the start of the conversation. I got into fossils, evolution, creation, apologetics, and presuppositionalism as well. It’s packed full of information, so the timeline below includes a large amount of references, articles, and resources.

Job 40:15-17

Hope fully I’ve included everything that you might need to study stuff mentioned in this episode. I also added some of the images discussed during the episode, in case you’re one of the podcast listeners instead of a Youtube watcher. No Humblebee left behind!

Throwback Thursday – Molecular Machines

Back in March of 2018 I did a six part series on the molecular machines we find in our bodies. I was reminded of this series during a recording for Monday’s podcast episode so I thought it would be a fun throwback so that you’re all prepared for me to totally geek out next week.


Well beloved brethren there seems to be no end to the amazing molecular machines within our bodies. We could continue this series for a year or more! Instead, I’m going to wrap this up with a recap on everything we’ve learned. Before I do that, I want to thank you all who prayed with me for my husband and the family who lost their baby. What a gift God has given to have an entire body of believers to go to for advice, encouragement, and prayer!

So in case you missed them here is a list of all the tiny robots working so hard to keep up alive.

Molecular Machines – ATP the energy for all cells, without which we would die, ATP is an amazing molecular machine in every single cell in our bodies.

Molecular Machines – Helicase a necessary machine for DNA replication, the Helicase is just as important as the ATP, and also resides in every cell.

Molecular Machines – Dynein the gear shifting motor, which helps move proteins and other needed nutrients and information, is one hard working machine.

Molecular Machines – Flagellum one of the worlds most known molecular machine, which propels things backward or forward, made of intricately designed pieces.

Molecular Machines – Myosins is a molecular machine that helps with muscle flexing, making in important for movement.

Molecular Machines – Clathrin the three legged protein that gathers together to build a basket like shape which moves information or nutrients inside or outside every cell, which is especially important in brain cells.

I hope this recap blesses you, if anyone missed a post. Stay tuned for the new series next Monday focusing on bringing God glory through creation science. Until tomorrow, dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Throwback Thursday: Intelligent Design – The Miracle of Life Part X

As you probably recall, a human beings body is designed to attack anything foreign, life viruses, but did you know the woman’s body naturally produces a way to prevent those same processes from destroying the life growing inside her? How about the tiny pieces that all have to come together perfectly, at just the right time, to make that little image bearer’s heart beat, lungs not drowned in fluid, brain synapsis fire? I covered all of these miraculous events in this ten part series…

Hello, dear ones, today’s throwback Thursday was one of my favorite series to write! Way back in December of 2017 I began The Miracle of Life series. This is a particularly fun throwback as many are suggesting a baby boom might be on the horizon. As you probably recall, a human beings body is designed to attack anything foreign, like viruses, but did you know the woman’s body naturally produces a way to prevent those same processes from destroying the life growing inside her? How about the tiny pieces that all have to come together perfectly, at just the right time, to make that little image bearer’s heart beat, lungs not drowned in fluid, brain synapsis fire? I covered all of these miraculous events in this ten part series, links to each individual article can be found at the end. Now, in our new shop, we are also able to create maternity shirts! Isn’t that neat? Great time for a baby boom, and a throwback Thursday.


Intelligent Design – The Miracle of Life Part X

Beloved brethren we are going to wrap this miracle up in a swaddling blanket and end this series. Pregnancy is actually a ten month affair, however only 5% of moms carry their blessings all the way to their due date. For me, in particular, Kayliegh was born several weeks early due to complications in my pregnancy. I just want to give some last minute thoughts on how miraculous child bearing is, and leave you with a little more awe and wonder at the sovereign God we serve.

In the last weeks of pregnancy the baby prepares for birth, sitting lower and sometimes head down. The bones in the babies head are not hardened like other bones in their body, they remain flexible for birth. At this point the antibodies from the mother are flowing heavily into the placenta, a process that once again involves miraculous acts done by tiny cells and protein machinery. One of the most amazing transformations take place in the babies body after it takes its first breath. The umbilical cord no longer works once the placenta has detached during the birth, which leads the heart to make some massive changes. For the first time, the babies heart and bypass arteries will begin pumping the blood to the lungs to be oxygenated. Once again, this rapid difference finds its cue from detailed instructions wound up in the tiniest book ever written, the DNA.

From conception to birth the DNA instruction manual is read, duplicated, and obeyed by the complex molecular structures within the human cells. How complicated is the miracle of life? Irreducibly so. Dear friends I can think of no greater example to give for the trials of this life than child bearing. I’ve never been the same, since I gave birth. It’s said the be the closest thing to death that you can do, and survive. The fruit of that trial, however, is priceless. Would I do it again? A million times if it meant I could have Kayliegh. It’s so worth it. Many of the trials we face on earth will be difficult, and yet the fruit is always so sweet on the other end.

I pray this series has been a blessing to you, brethren, and has allowed you to glimpse the greatness of the God who created us. He upholds all things in His capable, mighty hands. He is worthy of all honor, and praise, and glory! To the nonbelievers who are reading this, know with certainty that the day will come when the God who upholds this earth will judge it. We have all broken Gods Law, and as a just judge He will hold us accountable. The Bible says none are good, no not one. Our righteousness is as filthy rags to this holy, holy, holy God. It doesn’t matter how many days you go without murdering someone, the day you do it you will be a murder. You can’t go before an earthly judge and say ‘yeah I killed someone, but only once and all the other days I was a good person.’ It doesn’t work like that, you broke the law. If we, being sinners, know what justice ought to be, how much more so a righteous and just God?

Friend, I say this because I love you and I do not want you to be lost, you’ve sinned against an infinite God and on judgement day He will have no choice but to condemn you as guilty. God, in His mercy, sent His only begotten Son to have the cup of wrath, the very wrath that we stored up with our sinful desires, poured out on Himself. Christ took our punishment, He died in our place, so that we might be forgiven. He that knew no sin became sin so that wretched sinners could take on His righteousness. Repent of your sins, cry out to God for forgiveness, flee from the wrath to come. To my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Recalling Series – Intelligent Design: The Miracles of Life Parts I-X

Hello, dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! As I’ve created some new social media platforms I thought it would be a good idea to pull together the many scientifically rooted series done throughout the past two years for new readers. Right now, as we see states allowing the murder of babies all the way up until the day they are due to be born, this might be the most important series I’ve done. It’s also one of my favorite series that I did, as I recall how fascinating the research was! I hope this series will bless you if you missed it, or blessed you back when it was originally posted. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Monday Creation Science – Macro vs Micro

Hello, dear friends, I hope this post finds you all doing well. Today I want to clarify something that is essential to the debate on Creation verses Evolution. The difference between macro and micro evolution. I think we’ve probably touched on this in previous posts but I wanted to highlight the issue, and work through why the disctinction is so imperative. It’s actually the logical fallacy of equivocation that many in the secular world commit when they use the term evolution in both the macro and micro sense without differenciating between the two.

As believers we need to recognize this, as it takes what appears to be a solid conclusion on the unbelievers part, and shows where it no longer follows. We also need to be the loudest voice for reason, as Christians who follow the God who created a logical, orderly, universe, we ought to mantain a logical course of dialogue. This is relatively difficult when addressing the worldview thats largely given up logic, and reason, prefering post modernisms war against absolutes. However, this is all the more reason to cling to logic when reasoning with the lost, as we are a pecular people, set apart. We do not conform ourselves to this world, and should not give up reasonable argumentation simply because many do not like it.

Let’s define some terms, brothers and sisters. Let’s start with something that’s been wrongly labeled micro evolution. This is the small changes that take place within a species. In other words, it’s speciation, or natural selection if you’d like. Largely speaking, these changes cause species to become more specialized. What’s literally happening is information is being lost in the genome. This does not happen due to some magical process of the DNA molding itself through the environment outside. It happens because those who are not fit for the climate die out, those who are fit remain. Take dogs for example. A family of dogs find themselves in a very cold climate. The ones with long fur are going to survive, and mate, while the ones with shorter fur will die. As long furred dogs breed they pass on their dominant DNA coded fur, any puppies born with shorter fur won’t survive. After a few generations of long furred pups, only the dominate traits of long fur pass through the genome. This new breed of dog is now specialized, it no longer contains the coding for short or medium hair. If you remove it from cold weather and stick it in a humid, hot climate they will not survive. They have not evolved, they have lost information, thus they have devolved. While speciation is usually a plus for the winner of natural selection, secularists like to ignore the two predominant factors here: many short furred pups died, and information was lost not gained.

Not let’s define macro evolution, which is actually what the theory of evolution refers to. Some will say that speciation, or micro, leads to macro evolution after millions of years of selection. An obvious problem with this is that specialization of a species can not add new information. It will not create a female and male reproductive system, for example, so that a simple organism magically becomes complex enough to reproduce. Wouldn’t it be a shame if that poor simple organism evolved the female stuff but not the male stuff for another hundred thousand years? The female would die without passing on her genetically unique coding. The full meaning of macro evolution is that there was nothing, nothing exploded, and then chaos, where nothing organized itself by smashing into itself. Eventually nothing became the needed elements of life, which pooled together and evolved into a simple cell organism. That simple cell evolved and evolved until it became all the plants, and animals, on Earth. The short meaning of macro evolution is when one species evolved into a completely separate species, which has not and can not be observed scientifically.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5K-Q6mbEMYc&t=1507s

If you ask a secularist how we all got here and they say evolution, they’re referring to macro. If you ask for evidence they’ll immediately switch to micro, or speciation, mentioned bird beaks and bacteria. It’s not the same thing, which is why micro has other terminology and macro does not. However, without any ability to gather evidence for evolution, secularists use speciation instead. Wait long enough on the comment stream here and someone will come along to tell me all about how these separate terms mean the same thing, or that one is evidence for the other. Logical, reasonable human beings can see the difference and recognize the issues it causes. Unfortunately, when someone is directly attacking the very thing you’ve bet your eternity on, you’ve only got two choices. Either you can defend your blind faith in macro evolution, or you can honestly admit there are wholes in your worldview. That is a difficult place to find yourself.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aQKjUzotw_Y&t=1239s

These distinctions are important, they change the nature of the debate. We can not, ever, forget though, that we’re not trying to win a debate, we’re trying to win the lost to Christ. You can, and I have, show the lost secularist worshiping at the alter of Darwin how flawed this worldview is. All the evidence in the world will not change their position. Only God can take a heart of stone and replace it with one of flesh. Pray for the lost you encounter, reason with them in love and compassion. Do not give up Scripture, logic, or kindness, when doing so. Hold fast to truth, refute falsehood, and do so recognizing that the lost doesn’t love their evolution, they love their sin. Evolution allows them to suppress the truth in unrighteousness. I hope this explanation was helpful to you, beloved friends, I added a few videos I thought would expound upon the topic throughout this article. As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Darwin Devolves: The New Science About DNA That Challenges Evolution

Monday Creation Science – Humanity’s Family Tree: Homo neanderthalensis

Dear ones, today we have an exciting conclusion to our Monday series through the human family tree. The Neanderthal! Caveman cousin? Diseased humans? Aged men and women living far longer than we do? Before we dig right in, if you’ve missed previous posts in this series, friends, I’ll be sure to link to them at the bottom. What we’ve done is journeyed through the evolutionists idea of humanity’s family tree, pointing out the issues of timing and bone structure along the way. We avoided fossils that are so heavily debated that conclusions still remain to be made. I hope to finish today with the last branch of the tree before modern man, Neanderthal.

Neanderthal is the most common fossil in the family tree, with five hundred found thus far. While only twelve of those are complete fossils, it’s believed there are a total of five hundred individual Neanderthals present in the fossils found. They are unearthed all over the world, with Africa being the only exception. The term fossil is misleading in this case, as none of them have been found completely fossilized. The unique feature of being buried alongside modern man is perhaps why we have been able to uncover so many. Unique in that they have rarely been found not buried next to modern bones, that’s not to say that other groups have not also been found buried together. This is true, although not as common, for all the human groups we’ve discussed previously, except for H. Erectus.

Neanderthals have always been viewed as the caveman idiot, no where near as intelligent as modern man, of course. Fortunately we continue to find more and more evidence to the contrary, including findings suggesting they wore makeup, played musical instruments, hunted intelligently, used tools, and were seafaring. Another important scientific upset has been in the DNA, which was previously announced, and dogmatically concluded, to have been nonexistent in living humans today. That has, of course, been rescinded, due to research actually finding Neanderthal sequences in many living individuals. This is clearly the best evidence that Neanderthals are not ‘cousins’ or missing links between man and ape evolution, but humans with distinctive genetic qualities.

It is the odd qualities found in the Neanderthal bones that set them apart from the modern fossils they have been buried with. Secular views are varied, ranging from genetic disease, to malnutrition. None of the proposed possibilities are without major flaws. At this point, there is no obvious agreement amongst evolutionist scientists as to how these fossils came to look the way they do. This is not to say that the Creation scientists are in agreement either. The divide within the creationist view is where these fossils fit Biblically. For many, the Neanderthal fossils merely represent a genetically unique family group from the dispersion of Babel. For others, these fossils represent the individuals who lived much longer then modern man after the flood.

As we now know, the bones in human skulls continue to grow throughout our lives. This is another bit of research that overturned previously held beliefs that all bones stop growing after puberty. That’s still assumed to be the case for all other bones, although we know bones become more dense with age, and cartilage never stops growing. With this understanding, researchers modeled the current rate of skull growth with ages ranging from two to three hundred years old, and came up with images resembling the Neanderthal fossils. There are some compelling findings in the Neanderthal fossils that suggest they aged slower than modern man, including their teeth and jaws. Dr. Jack Cuozzo details these arguments, while also showing how these fossils are being altered to fit the image evolutionists want in his book Buried Alive which I reviewed here.

To conclude this series, I want to point out that we see the plot-line from evolutionists of a family tree that never existed, taught in schools and museums without facts or scientific evidence. Opinions, conjectures, assumptions, dishonest handling of fossils, and artistic renditions that leave out obvious bone structures that differ from the plot-line, is how we’ve been shown the ‘evolution’ of man. If it’s not observable and repeatable, it’s not scientifically provable. Beloved, these arbitrary stories of fictitious missing links need not be allowed to stand unopposed. As the church, we need to be educating our children, and one another, about these subjects. Especially the youth groups, which desperately need to be preparing the young adults to have an answer for the hope they have within. I pray this series has been a blessing to you all, as always beloved brethren, be good Berean’s, and study to show yourselves approved.

Monday Creation Science – Humanities Family Tree: Dr. Purdom’s Lectures

Hello everyone, I hope this post has found you all doing well! I realize I have not posted in quite some time, I apologize for my absence. We’re still waiting for housing, hanging out in hotels, and site seeing. All four of us jammed into a small room filled with luggage and beds make my inability to focus on what to write a lot harder. So, rather than give you a confused explanation of the next “branch” in our family tree I thought I’d share some very helpful lectures.

Dr. Georgia Purdom is a geneticist that works for Answers in Genesis. She’s one of my favorite modern scientists, not just because she’s a Biblical young earth creationist, but also because she’s really good at explaining things to my level. In the videos below, she deals with Adam and Eve. Particularly, she goes through the evidence for their literal existence. There is a great deal of professing Christians that suggest Genesis is poetry, or stories for moral examples, rather than historical narrative. Many will say God used evolution over millions of years to get man from ape ancestors. This comes with steep consequences, such as calling our Lord and Savior a liar, as He frequently talked about Genesis. It alters or does away with, fundamental doctrines of the faith, like original sin.

We do not, and should not, base our faith in scientific evidence. The Bible is our standard and authority, the Word of God is where we stake our claim to salvation by the grace of God alone. We enjoy science, we study science and praise God when we see how He has designed things. His creation cries out, as a witness to His existence. As such, especially when we discuss the “evolution” of man, we can look and see that He has left us without excuse. Science has failed utterly to show mans evolving but has found some truly beautiful evidence of Creation. I hope these lectures will bless you as much as they blessed me, and I hope to be back to a normal posting schedule soon. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Creation Science Monday – Humanities Family Tree: Homo Naledi

Hello dear ones! Please forgive my absence this week. We were told housing had a mix up, and was going to have to put us in a hotel for the final week of our assignment. After packing like crazy, they fixed the mix up and we’re staying in corporate housing the the week. In other words, it’s been a crazy week! Lord willing, this week will be an easier move due to the extreme packing from last week. Today, though, I’d like to briefly touch on the h. Naledi fossils. I’ve talked about these before, but they’re still touted as a human ancestor so I thought it best to add it into the tree.

It’s interesting, friends, that most scientists will admit there is a huge gaping hole in the fossil records, right where ancient apes should be. This is, obviously, because when paleontologists find ancient apes they insist they’re human ancestors. Like was done for so long with Lucy, and is now being down with Naledi. Often times articles will refer to Naledi as having many human like features, however that is debated even within the evolutionist and secular communities. The curvature of the hands, the hips, and even the strange attributes of the feet, in the Naledi fossils suggest these are ancient apes not deserving of the Homo title.

It’s worth noting that the cave these 1550 fossils were found in is extremely difficult to reach. It takes experts in spelunking to belly crawling half a mile, climbing a huge wall, then tunneling down a chute just to get to the chamber these were in. The bones themselves were found by spelunkers and cave enthusiasts. The jumbled mess of bones doesn’t seem to suggest burial, no were any tools found with them. It seems more likely, to me, that these bones were washed into the cave, than to assume some ancient human like species chose to dwell in such a difficult home. Either way, the bones show that these were clearly an ancient, extinct, species of apes. They also show the deep desire evolutionists have to bend evidence to fit their worldview. I hope this short post is a blessing to you all, and that you can continue to use this information to segue into the Gospel. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
