Private Space Firm Targets the Moon

Posted by on August 28, 2016 at 6:13 pm

“Bang! Zoom! To the Moon!” Did you miss it? Splashdown! Just a couple days ago, SpaceX’s Dragon capsule came home after spending over a month at the International Space Station (ISS). This mission was the 9th (out of a planned 20 under contract) since 2012, when Dragon “became the first commercial spacecraft in history to […]

The Problem of Public Education

Posted by on August 21, 2016 at 9:33 pm

I recently began reading Redeeming Science: A God-Centered Approach (2006) by Vern S. Poythress. The first few chapters are what you might call foundational for the discussion in the rest of the book. Some of it is good, some I find dry or not sure I totally agree or understand. But, that’s OK. I suspect […]

The Miller-Urey Experiment Is Irrelevant

Posted by on July 24, 2016 at 6:23 pm

“We have reached a situation where a theory has been accepted as fact by some, and possible contrary evidence is shunted aside. [This is] mythology rather than science.”  — Robert Shapiro, OOL researcher and gadfly to naturalist orthodoxy, Origins: A Skeptic’s Guide to the Creation of Life on Earth (1987) You may have expected a […]

Unicorns in the Bible? Not a Problem…

Posted by on June 13, 2016 at 9:25 pm

“God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.” — Numbers 23:22 (KJV) This week, I decided to do a fun (but, it turned out, rather laborious) study on an issue that some Bible skeptics have used to mock or dismiss the reliability of God’s Word. You see, […]

Ramm’s Interpretative Principle for Geology & Biology

Posted by on June 5, 2016 at 8:01 pm

“Almighty God is Creator, World Ground, and Omnipotent Sustainer. In his mind the entire plan of creation was formed with man as the climax. Over the millions of years of geologic history the earth is prepared for man’s dwelling, or as it has been put by others, the cosmos was pregnant with man…. From time […]

The Future Is Here

Over the past couple of weeks, several posts have come across my Facebook feed that consisted of short videos about cool, new, advanced tech. Many of them were from Futurism.com, which I highly recommend you check out. For now, though, I have included a few of my favorites for your amazement and enjoyment…. Robots and […]

Political Debates, Unsupported Rhetoric, and Scientific Censorship

Posted by on March 6, 2016 at 9:56 pm

“Human rights can only be assured among a virtuous people. The general government… can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, an oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any despotic or oppressive form so long as there is any virtue in the body of the people.”  — Gen. George Washington I just got home from […]

Direct Detection of Gravitational Waves and Black Holes

Posted by on February 14, 2016 at 9:16 pm

“Now that we have the detectors to see these systems, now that we know binary black holes are out there — we’ll begin listening to the Universe.”  — Prof. Gabriela González, Louisiana State University I was looking for something science-y to write about this week, and “fortune” smiled upon me with the announcement of something […]

Newsweek Tells Christians They Are Wrong

Posted by on January 3, 2016 at 9:01 pm

“Newsweek‘s cover story is exactly what happens when a writer fueled by open antipathy to evangelical Christianity tries to throw every argument he can think of against the Bible and its authority. To put the matter plainly, no honest historian would recognize the portrait of Christian history presented in this essay as accurate and no […]

Top 10: The Threequel

Posted by on December 27, 2015 at 7:44 pm

My long-time readers may remember that last year about this time I gave a “Top 10” list of some of my favorite AVftR posts, and that list was itself a sequel to a similar list from our 5-year anniversary post. One benefit (for me), of course, is that it is fairly easy for me to […]
