Hoe zit het met… de ouderdom van de aarde?
  Met gepaste trots mag presenteer ik vandaag mijn eerste boek: De ouderdom van de aarde. Vanaf nu in de winkel te koop (of bij mijn lezingen, natuurlijk). Op deze pagina zal ik (links naar) recensie verzamelen. In De ouderdom van de aarde behandel ik de argumenten vanuit Bijbel en wetenschap die een hoge ouderdom van de … More Hoe zit het met… de ouderdom van de aarde?

Is openbaring een kennisbron?
Is openbaring een kennisbron? En is perspectivisme een correcte zienswijze? Dr. G.A. van den Brink sprak op het congres ‘De waarde van de schepping voor wetenschapsbeoefening en ethiek’ over dit thema. Met dank aan Geloofstoerusting kon deze lezing worden opgenomen. Hieronder is de video te bekijken:The post Is openbaring een kennisbron? appeared first on Logos Instituut.

A team of astronomers recently concluded that a nearby spheroidal galaxy, designated as NGC1052-DF2, contains very little, if any, dark matter.1,2 Since Big Bang scientists use dark matter to explain how galaxies formed, this poses a potential problem for naturalistic views.The galaxy in question, estimated to be about 65 million light-years away, has roughly the same volume as our own Milky Way galaxy, but it&r... More...

Augustinus de schuld geven voor “Adam” (1)
Hier het eerste deel van ons antwoord op de bewering dat “niemand in de Bijbel geloofde die constructie van de historische Adam” en dat de kerkvader Augustinus (354-430) metterdaad voor deze constructie verantwoordelijk moet worden gehouden. Deze bewering horen we in een korte videoclip van de Canadian Scientific and Christian Affiliation. Scot McKnight noemt zeven...

As Though They Were Planted ThereIn the famed Cambrian Explosion most of today’s animal phyla appeared abruptly in the geological strata. How could a process driven by blind, random mutations produce such a plethora of new species? Evolutionist Steve Jones has speculated that the Cambrian Explosion was caused by some crucial change in DNA. “Might a great burst of genetic creativity have driven a Cambrian Genesis and given birth to the modern world?” [1] What explanations such as this do not address is the problem of how evolution overcame such astronomical entropic barriers. Rolling a dice, no matter how creatively,...

A Hall of MirrorsA new paper from Andreas Wagner and co-workers argues that a key and crucial driver of evolution is changes to the interaction between transcription factor proteins and the short DNA sequences to which they bind. In other words, evolution is driven by varying the regulation of protein expression (and a particular type of regulation—the transcription factor-DNA binding) rather than varying the structural proteins themselves. Nowhere does the paper address or even mention the scientific problems with this speculative idea. For example, if evolution primarily proceeds by random changes to transcription factor-DNA binding, creating all manner of biological...

Pre AdaptationIn contrast [to trait loss], the gain of genetically complex traits appears harder, in that it requires the deployment of multiple gene products in a coordinated spatial and temporal manner. Obviously, this is unlikely to happen in a single step, because it requires potentially numerous changes at multiple loci.If you guessed this was written by an Intelligent Design advocate, such as Michael Behe describing irreducibly complex structures, you were wrong. It was evolutionist Sean Carroll and co-workers in a 2007 PNAS paper.When a design person says it, it is heresy. When an evolutionist says it, it is the stuff...

The Politicization of ScienceTwitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently tweeted that Peter Leyden’s and Ruy Teixeira’s article, “The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War,” is a “Great read.” The article both urges and forecasts a blue-state takeover of America where our current political divide gives way to a Democrat dominion. This new “Civil War” is to begin this year and, like the last one will have an economic cause. Unfortunately, the thinking of Leyden and Teixeira is steeped in scientific ignorance which drives their thesis.According to Leyden and Teixeira both the last, and now upcoming, Civil Wars are...

The Book of Exodus presumably reflects the views of its Israelite authors on their deity, morality, and the like. Why then would the Israelites have imagined Yahweh slaughtering Egyptian children for sins the children themselves had not committed? Did the Israelites even think children were persons with any type of rights? The post Did the Ancient Israelites Think Children Were People? appeared first on Biblical Archaeology Society.
