Amos 8 and a Total Eclipse of the Sun

Published on August 20, 2017 By sirrahc

“Usually there’s a big ball of light in the sky But now on this Day of the Mon Nothing I can see A total eclipse of the Sun” (with apologies to Bonnie Tyler and James Richard Steinman) I admit, I’m just not that into it. Chasing Monday’s eclipse, that is. I’m a science apologetics geek, […]

Published on June 5, 2016 By sirrahc

“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 […]

“Increasing our understanding of truth constitutes a large part of our assignment here on Earth…. As scientists discover more and more about the realm of nature and everything within it, including ourselves and our beginnings, we can be certain that the evidence for its divine design as well as for the divine inspiration of Scripture […]

Thank God for Sperm Whales and Other Predators

Published on November 22, 2015 By sirrahc

As this year’s Thanksgiving celebration approaches here in the U.S., we are encouraged to consider all the things we have to be thankful for. Of course, the usual things tend to be family, jobs, food on the table, good friends, homes, cars, etc. Some of us go a little further, mentioning things like books, games, […]

Primer on Origins Views for Christians (Part 2 of 3)

Published on August 16, 2015 By sirrahc

“All truth is given by revelation, either general or special, and it must be received by reason. Reason is the God-given means for discovering the truth that God discloses, whether in his world or his Word.

A Local Flood Interpretation of Genesis 7

Published on February 9, 2015 By sirrahc

“[I]f the report is a phenomenological depiction, permitting the possibility of a local flood, the meaning is not substantially altered: all that Noah and his generation know is swallowed up by the waters so that none survives.”  — Dr. Kenneth A.

The Visit of the Magi (from Matthew 2 (NASB)): 1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 2 “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and […]

Journey of Light + Creeping Superfluid

Published on August 24, 2014 By sirrahc

I decided to throw a couple more science-bytes at you from astrophysicist Dr. Jeffrey Zweerink. They’re brief but fun bits of science trivia to pack into your “li’l pea brain” (as my friend likes to say). And, if you realize that, technically, that is not physically possible, then we’re on the same wavelength. 1) “We […]

A Bad Argument for Banana Design

Published on August 23, 2014 By sirrahc

Okay, here’s another “Real Science” moment from the staff at Reasons to Believe (RTB). This time, Dr. Jeff Zweerink explains why saying “The banana was perfectly designed for human hands.” is a bad argument. (Personally, I don’t think I have ever heard that argument for ID.) This one isn’t quite as weird as the one […]

Hugh Ross: In the Beginning

Published on July 27, 2014 By sirrahc

This post is a little different — a break for me (since I wasn’t sure I’d have something else ready in time) and, hopefully, a treat for you. It is a video from a conference held not long ago at Woodcrest Worldwide Church called “In the Beginning” — not to be confused with another conference […]
