The Society of God

A Christian concept of God is that he is one being in three co-equal Persons. We call this the Trinity, and it has profound implications for our lives, relationships, and the universe. Love is not God, but the Bible reveals that God is love because He is a community, not a single person.

Smile!

Horses don’t smile. Chimps don’t smile. In fact, no animal has the ability to smile, laugh, or make countless other fine facial expressions. But human babies, from very early on, can and do smile. Humans have about 50 small facial muscles whose only function is to enable expressions like smiling. We also have the complex brain pathways that make smiling …

Don’t Fossils Prove Evolution?

Glenn Fink Blog Leave a Comment

In my last article I talked about the problems with using the rocks in the geologic column to date fossils, then using the “age” of the fossils to date the rocks, and finally turning around and cherry-picking from widely varying radiometric dating methods on the rocks to date the fossils. The whole thing starts out with a story of the …

When a Rock Dates a Fossil

In my last two articles I talked about carbon dating (for formerly living things) and general radiometric dating (for minerals) and the problems with both methods. Now we’re going to mix the two and ask how scientists come up with dates for fossils that are supposedly much older than the maximum “age” carbon dating can measure (57,300 years). The short …

Do Rocks Lie?

This is the second article in the series titled, “Fossils and Dating and Rocks, Oh My!” Last time I talked about the most common method scientists use to date ancient objects, radioactive carbon (14C) dating. Because carbon dating depends on objective measurements, observations of the environment, and math, many people are very confident that the long ages claimed by measuring …

Fossils and dating and rocks, oh my! (Part 1)

How do we know the age of the Earth? The Bible has records that show about a 6,000-year history back to the beginning. But for the evolutionist, billions of years is the assumption. Ask an evolutionist how he knows the Earth is this old and he will probably tell you something about fossils, rocks, and dating methods. Yet in most …

Why Christians must not be Evolutionists

Glenn Fink Blog Leave a Comment

Many people I talk to tell me they believe in God, and many are actually Christians. They have accepted that Jesus is the only way to God and have given Him their lives. But sometimes people haven’t given God their minds, especially when it comes to science and origins. Is it okay to believe the Bible and subscribe to evolution, …

Who Created God?

“If God made everything, then who made God?” This is a question I often I hear from skeptics early in our conversation. As is often the case in these conversations, this question presupposes its own answer, and that is the whole problem with this line of thinking. To answer, we have to do what Jesus did, and answer the root of the question before answering the question itself.
