Darwin's Motivation

Have you ever wondered why Charles Darwin wrote On the Origen of the Species? Did he really believe what he tried so hard to prove? And what drives others to so passionately uphold his theories? What does The Discovery Channel, for instance, have to gain by airing his propaganda? We can find the answers by studying Darwin’s writings. Tom DeRosa has done a wonderful job compiling excerpts from Darwin in his book Evolution’s Fatal Fruit, which I will use in this post. Darwin was once a seminary student, and there was a time when, according to his Autobiography, he was an “Orthodox Christian.” He was studying to give his life in defense of the Scriptures, so what accounted for the change in his life? Near the end of his life Darwin wrote, “I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost

Christianity and an Old Earth

The age of the earth is believed by most Christians to be approximately 6,000 years old; there are some who date the earth a little older, at an even 10,000 years. These dates come as a result of the biblical genealogies, which I also believe is supported by science. Darwinism, on the other hand, requires the earth to be much older than 6,000-10,000 years. Because the theory of evolution is mathematically impossible, its supporters need time to make it even remotely plausible. Therefore, Darwinists have manipulated science for over a century to conclude that the earth is billions of years old. When one considers things like the continental drift, erosion of the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls, the amount of space dust on the moon, and the shrinking sun, there is no room for billions of years. When NASA was gearing up to land on the moon, they estimated space dust to collect at a rate of half an inch for every thousand years, and what they found was three inche

Darwin's Childhood

I often hear people say that we should not brainwash our children with the gospel. So many people believe that this amounts to indoctrination, which they say is harmful to children. I disagree. For one thing, everybody “brainwashes” their children, whether they realize it or not. The atheist, whether in words or actions, teaches his children there is no God; the Muslim teaches his children that there is no god but Allah, etc. Our upbringing helps shape our worldview. A person’s worldview can change over time, but what he is exposed to in his formative years will always be a part of who he becomes. Now consider this: when a Darwinist (or anyone who believes in evolution) says that a Creationist (or anyone who believes that God created the world) should not brainwash his children and blind them to science, he is actually being hypocritical. If anyone was brainwashed into a flawed way of thinking, it was Charles Darwin. Darwin’s paternal grandfather, Erasmus Da

Lifted by Angels

This book is not at all what I expected, and that is not a bad thing. The subtitle of the books is “The Presence and Power of our Heavenly Guides and Guardians,” which led me to believe that the book would use the Bible to teach on angels. Going in, I thought I would be reading a handbook on the occurrences of angels in the Bible. Instead, Joel Miller admits that the Bible gives us little insight in regards to angels. The author does use some Bible verses, but his primary sources are early church writings and iconographers. If a person is looking for a good, thorough manual about what the church fathers thought about angels, than this is a good book. Drawing from the iconographers, Miller also includes several pictures, or “icons,” of angels carrying on their work. It is important to point out that when we are dealing with people, there is always room for error (compared to when we use Scripture alone). So some of the duties of angels as laid out by th
