Creation Bullet #4
Cause and effect: Evolutionists frequently misuse the cause and effect argument to give false support for their beliefs. An example would be rain as a cause and wet ground as the effect. The cause results in the effect. But this cannot be used in reverse.
A Biblical Perspective on How to Live In a Culture That Rejects Truth
In order for the Bible to make such statements as above, it must assert that there is such a thing as original, absolute truth. Is there such a thing? If so, what truth? Whose truth?
Bill Nowers, a retired Navy Captain, founder of CREATION & EVOLUTION STUDIES MINISTRY and a Virginia Christian Alliance Advisor has reviewed biology books being considered by Orange county and has written this letter to the County with his concerns. We urge others to be active and interface with our officials.
In our support for God’s creation over Darwinian evolution we should first be aware of the type of false arguments used by atheists in their writings. I use atheist as the source of these arguments but theistic evolutionists believe in the same evolution. The only difference is atheists believe everything happened by chance while theistic evolutionists believe all evolution was directed by God. Every claim of evidence, or proof of macroevolution, is either misleading, irrelevant or false. Since the primary leaders in the evolution movement are atheists, they have no incentive to be limited by moral values.
The majority of scientist and biology teachers say the Universe came about from nothing, accidentally by random chance; that everything evolved from a Big Bang and God was not involved. They insist that Evolution is more than a theory: it is a fact! Their authority comes from their having earned a PhD in some scientific field, which they feel gives them a superior ability to make determinations about the history of our Origins.
When God presented the account of how He created the world and universe in the Book of Genesis, He gave an explanation that was straight forward and easy to understand. We, of course have no idea of what processes took place when He spoke or when He stretched His hands. But He gave an account that indicated the work was accomplished in a period of what we know was 6 days.
When we are talking about evolution we are referring to explanations of our Origins, who we are, how we got here and why. This happened many years ago and there are no operational scientific experiments that can answer these questions.
One question often heard concerning creation and man’s origins, as well as life’s origins, is whether Biblical accounts describing man’s origins and God’s creation of the universe can be trusted. Are the Biblical accounts accurate? Did the creation really occur? Was there really an Adam? an Eve? Was there really a world-wide global flood? There is amazing evidence that many miraculous events described in the Bible actually took place as described by the Bible. In this article we shall look at some of this evidence.

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio— The Ohio Supreme Court has granted The Rutherford Institute’s appeal to hear the case of John Freshwater, a Christian teacher who was fired for keeping religious articles in his classroom and for using teaching methods that encourage public school students to think critically about the school’s science curriculum, particularly as it relates to evolution theories. Freshwater, a 24-year veteran in the classroom, was suspended by the Mount Vernon City School District Board of Education in 2008 and officially terminated in January 2011. The School Board justified its actions by accusing Freshwater of improperly injecting religion into the classroom by giving students “reason to doubt the accuracy and/or veracity of scientists, science textbooks and/or science in general.” The Board also claimed that Freshwater failed to remove “all religious articles” from his classroom, including a Bible.

We, of course have no idea of what processes took place when He spoke or when He stretched His hands. But He gave an account that indicated the work was accomplished in a period of what we know was 6 days. He makes it very clear they are 24 hour days when He gives the 10 Commandments. (Exodus 20:11). It takes no theological training for the average person to see what He is saying. In addition the Bible contains genealogies that run from Adam & Eve to Jesus that allow for the calculation of years since Creation which would put the date at approximately 4000 BC.
David DeWitt talked about his book, Unraveling the Origins Controversy. The interview, part of Book TV's college series, was recorded at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Unraveling the Origins Controversy answers many of the most challenging questions in the origins debate. Scientist and author, Dr. David A. DeWitt clears up the confusion about creation and evolution by distinguishing fact from interpretation. He exposes the underlying assumptions and evidence on both sides of this contentious debate from a consistent Biblical worldview. Using scientific evidence and Scripture, he presents a positive, compelling case for a creation perspective.

Petition for Impeachmentof Attorney General Mark Herring
As Virginians, we, the undersigned, believe our Commonwealth is entitled to be represented by an Attorney General who will not betray our Constitution by joining litigants in an effort to have its duly-adopted provisions declared illegal.
Our collective, informed decision to preserve the sacred institution of marriage in Virginia constitutes sound public policy and is supported by compelling legal arguments.
Under these circumstances, we, the undersigned, hereby call for the impeachment of Attorney General Mark Herring, who has chosen to actively fight against this Constitutional provision rather than fulfill his duty to defend it.
