Comment on Silence of the Geoscience Research Institute by Ron D Henderson.
I must totally disagree with DC Hill; Let me say from the outset that yes, we should be polite to each other; but have you looked at the ledger and seen how many times creationists have been despised, and mocked at? Admittedly there are those that are crude, but the facts are in favour of Christians for politeness than for atheists and such like. It seems that Hill’s studies are not current. See this:
Geology: all he says is the â€˜prevailing view!â€™ Of course the prevailing view of the evolutionists! Geology more strongly supports creation and a young earth. The evidences are too numerous: Grand Canyon and water formation, coal seams, fossils without any missing links, etc., etc.
Palaeontology: This point is no argument since it is inaccurate. Types of fossils have been found all over the strata. Also, lab experiments have shown that strata specificity are according to the size, density, and weight of the objects. Just try it yourself in a jug of water with an assortment of objects and see how they settle after vigorous shaking. Also the very fact that he mentions complete forms are in our favour. You mean to say that after millions of years of evolving there are no missing links in abundance? Take the lowest level, the pre-Cambrian, ever heard of the Cambrian explosion? Check out what is seen and known from that earliest strata!
Astronomy: Studies have also shown the troublesome assertion of an old universe in view of todayâ€™s findings in the galaxies, light magnitudes, red shift, blue shift, etc. However, this is not a problem for us creationists of the SDA persuasion. We do not date the universe as young as the earth. We do not say that they were created the same time. However, Astronomy does show that our ideas of how old are just guestimates!
Radiometric Dating: shows more clearly a young earth rather than an older one, especially when one considers the age factor and the accrued chronological factor. This factor is well screwed and has been shown to be inaccurate, especially the constancy of the isotopes decay, and original deposits, etc.
Genetics: this one is more laughable. Genetics shows no connection or inter-relatedness between different life forms. In fact genetics show that cars, bikes, and trucks all are similar since they have a similar format! Humans then interject that one came from the other!!
Conclusion: Science is just the existence of knowledge; how this knowledge is interpret is all according to oneâ€™s worldview. Good sense shows that you cannot get something out of nothing; nor can an inorganic, lifeless mass produce a living creature. Life only begets life. Yet there are those that seem to turn things up sided down and say that all things are related. Good sense tells us that that is impossible; everything today disproves it, yet some force the issue. Is not this what our governments are doing when they makes laws directly against the Bible and ask us, yea, mandate us to accept these laws on the pain of penalty?
I like this one: True science and the Bible do not disagree.

Scientists and the Temptation to Bias Results
This is so sad but not surprising. One can add to this article the intimidation at universities of creationists, and even the threat of not graduating those who hold creationist world views. And even the governments’ educational systems support these frauds one way or the other. I guess the devil must do his work of obfuscation and deceit. Unfortunately some of humanity will learn the truth too late.
Believing the Disproven – An Adventure in Science
Excellent article! However this is not unique or strange for the truth presenters. How many times in the Bible we read of the ‘truthers’ accommodating error? Legion; just check the record of the kings of Israel and Judea. Did not our mother inherit that from satan in the Garden under the forbidden tree? Check how she evangelized her husband, our father! But then again, God had and still has His remnant!! Good to know that. Evolution? Just open satan’s box of strategies for planet earth and see some of His plans!
Ted Wilson: No Room for Evolution as Truth in Adventist Schools
I am all for accountability. If these teachers are not accountable for upholding our biblical teachings we may as well close up shop for anything goes! But that is not our practice. We are duty bound to promote and subscribe to our teachings. Those who do not do so or cannot do so must be relieved of their duties.  We endanger our students when we teach falsehood in our science classes. The UK recognized the importance of accountability to its false science in schools and banned creation in government supported schools. Are the Gentiles wiser than the children of God? Elder Wilson must now put teeth to his words by calling all our institutions to accountability or the GC will have to see that they do…
Dr. Nick Matzke Explains the Evolution of Complexity
I find it quite amusing how we argue evolution with a straight face and are so hypothetical, philosophical, and imaginary. It’s not what could be or what should be. It’s actually what is! When we take the ‘what is’ and run it backwards to the earliest beginnings we find that there is no difference between what is and what was. The evolutionary concept of ‘evolving’ is very hard to come by. We do not see it. And what we see is in itself a complete whole and not an evolutionary misfit. For the religion of evolution to survive it has to exercises humongous faith and story telling but without any specimen and its generation before them. For creationists there is only one model and that is the Genesis account. And by the Genesis account I mean a literal acceptance of Genesis and all support passages through out the Scriptures. I do not refer to ‘other’ creation accounts that would neuter the Genesis narration. These are akin to the varied evolutionists’ accounts of origins. The ‘debate’ was like watching two individuals debate the origin of a motor car parked in front of them. Each had his imagination, philosophy, and supposition. Except if the car could talk it would say, first, you both were not there and so are badly off track. Secondly, it would say, I was made by someone with intelligence, humor, and skill. Of course for the evolutionist to say that would give the game away and their religion would become extinct! One day it will, believe it or not!
The Adventist Accrediting Association is Still Reviewing LSU
Let us not forget that God is in charge of this work and of his church. And yes, we do suffer for our negligence, procrastination and compromise. But God is still in charge. If the men at the helm of his church on earth are delinquent and refuse to rock the boat, then they will be removed in His good time. In the mean while we must be faithful and do all in our power to correct the situation in our sphere of control, regardless of the ‘feelings’ of the ‘peace, peace’ lovers in the church.
