Here’s a brief, but interesting article on how scientists have yet again been bamboozled by something appearing where it shouldn’t. Their preconceived notions about how and when these “impossible rocks” form is the cause of their confusion.
The “impossible rocks” are massive quartzite rocks. They state that much of this island, including large portions of a mountain, is made of quartzite. This shouldn’t be because it is a volcanic island. One of the scientists (towards the end of the article) came up with a creative explanation for how this could have occurred, “millions of years ago”. I always love these explanations, which are neither observable or historical. Therefore, the explanation falls outside of the scientific method. Continue reading →
Below is an article from Breakpoint on recent developments in the identification and dating of Jesus’ tomb. While it’s not definitive, it certainly provides some interesting insight and demonstrates how technology is aiding the archeological research of Christian history. Continue reading →
It’s amazing how often “science” changes. Back in June 2015, there was a news article which stated that scientists had shown that Neanderthals and homo sapiens had interbred 50,000-60,000 years ago, which effectively meant that Neanderthals are human. Now they’re saying the interbreeding happened more like 100,000 years ago.
Based on the Bible, I would say that there is no meaningful difference between Neanderthals and homo sapiens. If they can breed, then they’re the same “kind”. Humans were created on day 6 of the Creation Week (Genesis 1:27). I think the differences from Neanderthals and other humans are just genetic traits which began to take shape after the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9), when humans were grouped by language, effectively narrowing the gene pool for those groups and giving them common physical traits. But what do I know?
