God’s Judgment in Noah’s Flood.

In the next several weeks we’ll be focusing on Noah’s Flood described in Genesis. Recently some Christian leaders are promoting the view that Noah’s Flood was a “local flood” in the Mesopotamian region of the Middle East. The Scripture is clear; Noah’s Flood was worldwide to fulfill God’s intention was to destroy all land-dwelling, air-breathing living creatures outside the Ark. Genesis 6:7-8. So the Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man, and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I’m sorry that I have made them.”  But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

The actual results of His judgment are recorded in Genesis 7:11-23 In the six-hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 On the very same day Noah and his sons, Shem and Ham and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them entered the ark, 14 they and every beast, according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, according to its kind, and every bird, according to its kind, every winged creature. 15 They went into the ark with Noah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life. 16 And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him. And the Lord shut him in.

17 The flood continued forty days on the earth. The waters increased and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the face of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed so mightily on the earth that all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered. 20 The waters prevailed above the mountains, covering them fifteen cubits deep. 21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, birds, livestock, beasts, all swarming creatures that swarm on the earth, and all humankind. 22 Everything on the dry land in whose nostrils was the breath of life died. 23 He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark.”

Note how many times the word “all” is in this passage. There would be no reason to spend the significant effort to build the Ark if Noah could have fled to another region to escape the flood. The flood must be worldwide because God’s judgment on the Earth was complete. Anything less than worldwide would be incomplete and make God a liar. Also, God’s promise to never judge the world by water again would have been broken many times in local floods like Katrina, in New Orleans. Next week I’ll be on vacation. I’ll pick up on 7/28 with Noah’s Flood timeline.

Geology demonstrates the Young Earth: Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons & Mt.St.Helens

How long ago were the Grand Tetons in Wyoming formed??

If you go to Grand Teton National Park, the rangers will tell you that those mountains rose to their present position over a period of 20 million years. Over this 20 million years there is supposed to be about 20,000 feet of mountains eroded (1,000 feet per million years). When you hike in the Teton’s passes, you see many broken rocks but little sand or fine material that would indicate extended periods of erosion. The plain at the foot of these peaks contain many beautiful lakes that show a lot of exposed rock and shallow soil layers. There is no sign of the vast amount of material that should be there after 20 million years of erosion. These mountains appear to be young, not old.

How was the Grand Canyon formed, the “missing rivers”??

When I visited the North Rim of Grand Canyon, I heard the Park Rangers tell a tall tale about how the canyon was formed. The problem that they face is; the rim of the canyon is over 1000 feet above the level of the Colorado River upstream in southern Utah. The river would have to run UPHILL to cut the canyon. To overcome this, they fabricated a series of rivers that no longer exist and disappeared without a trace. The ranger admitted that this explanation is hard to justify but is the best evolutionary geologists can do. The Creationist explanation is that a massive amount of water was trapped during Noah’s flood and was released in southern Utah. That flow cut the Grand Canyon in a very short amount of time, days or weeks. At the eruption of MT. St. Helens in 1980 we saw this same effect where a canyon 1/40th the size of Grand Canyon was eroded in less than 48 hours. The creation model is far more feasible than the missing rivers scenario.

How did the eruption of Mt. St. Helens show the viability of Creation?

The two results of the eruption of Mt. St. Helens that showed rapid process could look as if they took long periods of time were:

1) Deposition of hundreds of feet of strata in days that had very fine layers in them that most evolutionists would count as one year each for each layer, and

2) Rapid erosion of canyons that have an appearance of age but formed in days.

Next time you go to a national park look around and ask the rangers questions based on the young earth model. For example: “Was the Grand Canyon caused by a lot of water and a little time instead of a lot of time and a little water?” There are credible Creationist explanations for the geological features on the Earth that in many cases make more sense than the Evolutionary ones.

Different people, in good faith, can look at the same fact and interpret it differently. But that’s where an interesting conversation begins. Eric Schlosser

Creation’s Young Earth and an “Old Looking” Universe

There are at least three explanations that Creationists have used to explain how this Universe that looks millions or billions of years old can be only 6,000 years young: 1) Young Earth Cosmology, 2) Creation Fully Formed and 3) Decreasing Light Speed.

1) Young Earth Cosmology. The newest one developed by Dr. Russ Humphreys is the most satisfactory. He proposes using Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and changing the assumptions from the “Big Bang” model to derive a young universe. The foundation of “Big Bang” cosmology is Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. To get the equations of the theory to work for a Big Bang a series of assumptions (parameters) have to be accepted. These are; the Universe contains no boundaries, size is infinite, it has no edge, it has no center of mass, it has a uniform distribution of matter, and there is no net gravity effect. These assumptions are in direct contradiction to the observations we make in the Universe. For example, it is VERY lumpy and does NOT have a uniform distribution of mass. When you set the parameters in Einstein’s theory to conform to Humphries model you will get an expanding Universe that looks old but is young. This Young Earth Cosmology is described in the book “Starlight and Time” by Dr. Russ Humphries. The other two are decreasing the speed of light and Creation with an appearance of age.

2) Creation Fully Formed. A second explanation is that God made the creation fully functioning, and the light from long distances was put in place at the moment of creation. Everything is complete from the very start.

3) Decreasing Light Speed. Finally, the third is that when God created light on day one, the speed of light was almost infinite but has slowed to the current speed today. If this is true then using light speed to measure distance is not feasible.

Incidentally, 90% of the mass needed for the Big Bang model is missing. Astronomers call it cold, dark matter; can’t see it, can’t find it but it MUST be there if the Big Bang is real, incredible faith, but poor science.

4) Is Time Eternal?

God existed in eternity without space/matter/time. The first verse of Genesis indicates the first thing God did was start time. “In the beginning,” time starts first, and then God creates the physical Universe. In eternity, there was nothing but God. Einstein’s Theory of Relativity indicates time had a beginning. Time is NOT ETERNAL; it has a beginning and will have an end.

Dinosaurs in the Bible’s 6,000 Year Time Frame

One of the most common questions asked at my workshops and seminars are: “Where do the dinosaurs fit in the Biblical time frame?” Many Christians are misled by the evolutionary propaganda that dinosaurs are extinct for 65 million years. The Bible teaches that dinosaurs were created on day six with all the other land animals and lived at peace in Eden. All creatures were set up to eat fruits and vegetables, and so they did too. Not until after the fall and definitely after the flood did animals begin to kill and eat each other to survive. The dinosaurs, being cold-blooded reptiles, survived very well before the flood in the lush garden paradise. They grew gigantic because reptiles continue to grow as long as the food is available. The 100-year-old alligator is awesome!

We have fossils of other enormous creatures from the pre-flood world (dragonflies with a 51-inch wingspan, 12-inch cockroaches, 6-foot tall rabbits, giant sloth’s, etc.). When God told Noah about the coming flood, he told Noah to take two of each “kind” of land-dwelling, air-breathing animal on the ark, including each “kind” of a dinosaur. But weren’t they too big? NO! Dinosaurs hatch from eggs, and the largest dinosaur eggs are about the size of a football. So even the giant T-Rex was once the size of a dog soon after it hatched. So space for young ones on the Ark would not be a size problem. Each “kind” would represent great variety. For example, a pair of dogs would serve the whole dog kind including wolves, coyotes, dingoes, etc. Not two Great Danes, two Poodles, two Daschund, two Timber Wolves, two Chihuahua, two whatever. In summary, the dinosaurs were created at the same time as Adam, lived in the garden, many were destroyed in Noah’s flood, and those that came off the Ark became extinct quickly because of the post-flood conditions.

There are several pieces of evidence that men met dinosaurs in recent times. In a Bible Science Newsletter, a publication that ceased in the 1990s, there was an article documenting human contact with dinosaurs in 13th and 14th century Europe. Many civilizations have legends of “Dragons” that sound like dinosaurs. In the American west, the native peoples have a legend of a creature called the Thunderbird that until the 1950’s anthropologists studying these Native Americans scoffed at this legend as being a myth of folk tale. However, there were reports of cowboys in the early 1800s seeing this creature. In the mid-1950’s fossils were found of a flying reptile, now named Quetzalcoatlus that probably was the legendary Thunderbird. There is an animal living in central Africa called Mokele Mbembe whose description, by the native peoples, sounds like a dinosaur. Look it up on the web in Cryptozoology. I asked an evolutionist recently: “If we found a living dinosaur, wouldn’t Evolution be falsified?” He said: “Of course not we would just have another living fossil.” Evolutionists will never admit to their theory being in trouble. Living Fossil is an oxymoron. Fossils are dead stone pictures of what was ONCE living.

The Magi and the Star. How did they know He’s born?

magi-starAs we get ready to celebrate Christmas I thought it valuable to look at the theme the “Heavens declare the glory of God!”

The Scripture: Matthew 2:1-3 “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod, the king, behold, Wise-men (Magi) from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we saw his star in the east, and are come to worship him.’ And when Herod the king heard it, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.”

The Magi were Astronomer/Astrologers probably some from Babylon and would have known Hebrew history through Daniel. What knowledge does their question imply? “The King of the Jews has been born (with certainty), but we don’t know where.” They had seen his star and also knew; “This King is worthy of our worship.”

The Astronomy: Leo – Lion, the constellation represented the Jewish nation for all ancient astronomers would appear in the early morning sky in the darkness about 2-3 hours before dawn in Jerusalem. Regulus, a central star in Leo, is been known down through the centuries as the ‘king star.’ On the other hand, Jupiter was also called the royal or king planet.

The Hebrew Calendar: Rosh Hashanah is commonly known as the Jewish New Year. The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of trumpets) and is instituted in Leviticus 23:23-25. The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of Sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts.’”

The Sign in the Heavens: On the night of Rosh Hashanah, September 11, 3 B.C., Jupiter was in conjunction with Regulus, the brightest star in Leo, the lion. It passed across the star, stopped around the first of December and began a retrograde movement, crossing Regulus again on February 17, 2 B.C. It continued its backward trek 40 days, then turned around again and had a third conjunction with Regulus on May 8, 2 B.C. It must have had special significance to the Magi when Jupiter, the king planet had the first of three conjunctions with Regulus, the king star between the feet of Leo. Circling above Regulus, Jupiter seemed to draw a crown – signifying the arrival of the heavenly King.

“The remarkable thing about this triple conjunction is that the dying Jacob gave a prophecy on his deathbed concerning the coming of the Messiah from the tribe of Judah – to which he gave the sign of the celestial lion, the constellation Leo. Genesis 49:9-10a.

So the Magi came to seek Him after reading in the heavens, “the king of the Jews has been born, and He is worthy of worship!” They did not get the second part of this sign that the planet Venus was visible but Mars was not which signified the virgin birth.

Did God create in six days, actually, six regular days?

My beautiful picture

My beautiful picture

At my Creation seminars, during the Q&A session, I am often asked if it is necessary to believe in six literal days of creation to be a Christian? Rather than being dogmatic I answer. “If you believe the Bible is true then you must subordinate all other of information sources to second place. So, if science seems to contradict Scripture then it must be science that is wrong.” WOW, that often gets some pretty powerful reactions. Then I say: “Since no man was present at the beginning of Creation we can only guess what happened, but since God was there and told us what happened we should believe God, not men.” Some people still want to equivocate so then I say: “Let’s go to Genesis and see what it says: In Genesis chapter 1 the Scriptures teach that God created the universe and everything in it in six days. The language in Genesis, the sequence of events, and the findings of modern science all confirm the Earth is young, about 6,000 years, and these six days are one full Earth rotation each just like our days today.”

It is essential for Christians to accept a six 24-hour day Creation not because of science but because of the theological implications of the other Christian compromise understandings. It is the Bible and not science on which our knowledge must rest. Compromises like the gap theory, day ages or ruin/restoration suffer from a fatal theological flaw – physical death in Creation before Adam’s sin. At the end of each day God says his creative process is good and at the end of day six, He says; “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:31) God said: “EVERYTHING was VERY GOOD.” In the original language, this means Creation is both complete and perfect. If any of the above compromises are true, then death is present before sin appears in Genesis chapter 3 and therefore, at the end of day six, God declared physical death to be very good. By implication the new Creation, which is the original creation restored, described by the prophets and the book of Revelation will then contain physical death. The Scriptures clearly teach that redemption includes the elimination of all death from the New Heavens and Earth. A perfect world restored!!! You cannot have death before sin and be consistent with the Bible. Yes God did it in six regular days. Christians who don’t want to believe it will fabricate all kinds of arguments to avoid this obvious conclusion. God has redeemed us from DEATH and death will be cast into the lake of fire!!! Death will be dead forever. I know this blog contains some pretty strong statements, but Jesus made strong statements when asked questions that challenged God’s Word, and often went back to Genesis for answers. So must we!

Dinosaurs and Men were together in History!

Museum

The two most common questions asked at my workshops and seminars are: “Where do the dinosaurs fit in the Biblical calendar?” and “Is there any evidence that men encountered dinosaurs?” Even many Christians are misled by this evolutionary propaganda that dinosaurs are extinct for 65 million years. Dinosaurs were created on day six with all the other land animals and lived at peace in Eden. All creatures ate fruits and vegetables. Not until some time after the fall and definitely after the flood do animals begin to kill and eat each other to survive.

Each “kind” would represent great variety. For example, a pair of dogs would serve the whole dog kind including wolves, coyotes, dingoes, etc. Not two Great Danes, two Poodles, two Daschund, two Timber Wolves, two Chihuahua, two whatever…

When Noah’s flood was over, the earth changed radically. The lush vegetation was gone, the climate was more severe and predatory behavior, animals killing other animals for food, became dominant. The dinosaurs became extinct because of these new conditions.

In the Bible Science Newsletter, a publication that ceased in the 1990s, there was an article documenting human contact with dinosaurs in 13th and 14th century Europe. Many civilizations have legends of “Dragons” that sound like dinosaurs. In the American west, the native peoples have a legend of a creature called the Thunderbird.

Living fossil, incidentally, is an oxymoron. Fossils are by definition stone pictures of dead creatures.

The dinosaurs were created at the same time as Adam, lived in the garden, many died in Noah’s flood, and those that came off the Ark became extinct quickly because of the post-flood weather conditions.
