Why I’m a Creationist
Shows that popular ‘textbook’ arguments in favour of evolution have significant problems and that biblical creation can explain the data better.
Voyage to the Planets: Solar System Discoveries that Confirm Creation

It is true that young-age creationism was eclipsed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with much of the professing church accepting an old earth and, in the decades after Darwin, the theory of evolution…
Evaluating Christian views of origins
Should we search for harmony between Genesis and modern scientific accounts of origins? And, if so, what are the options available to us?
In fact, these debates had been raging for over 100 years before Darwin came along, because of the demands being made by geologists for increasingly long periods of pre-human history in their understanding of geological phenomena.
While theological liberals have been content to relegate Genesis to the status of pre-scientific myth, those holding more conservative views of the Bible have tended to seek complementarity with science, in one form or another.
In this article, we will evaluate four such popular solutions to this problem…
Time for an upgrade?
Creationist researcher s strive to understand what the earth’s rock record has to teach us about god’s judgment and mercy. While we never waver on god’s word, we must constantly reevaluate models and adopt new ones if they make better sense of the evidence. British researcher Paul Garner made such a radical shift when he learned what the Catastrophic Plate Tectonics (CPT) model can explain…
