God Brings Big Things from Little Seeds

[449 words] I read an article not long ago about a team of scientists that attempted to construct a kernel of corn. They had analyzed an actual kernel of corn and broken it down to its molecular makeup and had determined exactly what it was made of. Then, using the same “materials” they constructed an...

Which Came First?

[192 words] A young skeptic said to an elderly lady, “I once believed in God, but since studying science I am convinced that God is but an empty word.” The lady replied, “Well, I have not studied science, but since you have, maybe you can tell me from whence came the egg.” “Why, of course,...

Creation and the Bible Declare His Greatness and Love

[338 words] Read Psalm 19. Perhaps at some time in your life you stopped to admire a sunset – all the wonderful colors glossing into a farewell for the day; Venus begins shining brightly in the evening sky, almost calling to the other lesser lights. Or perhaps there was a time when you stood at...

1000 Miles Per Hour

[230 words] The earth rotates on its axis at approximately 1,000 miles per hour. If that had been 100 miles per hour, our days and nights would be 10 times longer, and our planet would alternately bum and freeze. Under such circumstances vegetation could not live. If the earth were as small as the moon,...

What About the Unfit?

[114 words] The theory of evolution declares mankind is the result of the survival of the fittest. If this is so, then getting rid of the unfit is desirable. To conquer and exploit weaker people, businesses, or countries is simply the law of the jungle from which we evolved. Mercy killings, forced sterilization, and selective...

Did God Create These Little Devils?

I am talking about a small but extremely aggressive marsupial called the “Tasmanian Devil.” They only exist on an island south of Australia. Experts in Sydney believe that these little animals developed/evolved a (cocktaiI) milk formula that helps their young resist infection. Their milk contains cathelicidins in their genetic code, and tests run on 25...

It Just Happened!

The story is told of a science professor who constructed a planetarium, a precisely scale model of the universe. A student came into his office and asked him who made it. The professor said, “No one.” The student laughed and asked again, “Come on, who make this fantastic piece of precise work?” The professor replied,...

Awesome Creator

[170 words] “Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?…The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deed of old; I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be” (Proverbs 8:21-23). Chiral molecules have two forms that are mirror images...

The Heavens Declare

“The heavens declare the glory of God and the skies proclaim His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). Our DNA contains instructions for building proteins out of sequences of amino acids. There are 500 or so known amino acids, but life uses only 23. The average protein in a cell is about 450 amino acids long so there...

Designer Reflections

A chimpanzee’s toes are long and splayed, and its big toe equivalent pulls away from the other digits like a thumb: a prehensile foot designed for quick climbing. By contrast, in the human foot, the sole is enlarged while the bone of the big toe is thickened and aligned with the other, now-foreshortened toes: This...

Now, That’s Science! 

Our local paper carried accounts of two science workshops in local schools, and in reading the accounts, we could see that science was truly at work. In one case, the earth’s revolving around the sun was demonstrated by drawings and showing them in rapid sequence. That illustrated a point of science! In the other case,...
