Dinosaurs Center Of Christian Debate Over Age Of The Earth

From Christian Post.Com "The 700 Club" co-host Pat Robertson has voiced his disagreement with Young Earth Creationists by recently stating on his show that he believes the existence of dinosaurs proves that the earth is not 6,000 years old, as some conservative Christians believe. "I know people will probably lynch me for this, but Bishop (James) Ussher, God bless him, wasn't inspired by the Lord when he said it all took 6,000 years. It Continue Reading

Fossil Apes: Homo Habilis and Home Rudolfensis

From KHouse.Org The famous fossil hunting family, the Leakeys, on August 8th announced the excavation of a face and two jaw bones tentatively belonging to the ancient hominin Homo rudolfensis, with zoologist Dr. Meave Leakey declaring, "At last we have some answers."  The mother-daughter team Meave and Louise Leakey, wife and daughter of Richard Leakey, discovered three new fossils between 2007 and 2009, which they hope will shed light Continue Reading

Living Fossils kick at evolution

From KHouse.Org In 1938, men fishing off the east coast of South Africa caught a peculiar fish that was identified as a coelacanth ("SEE-le-canth"). This find shocked the paleontological world, because the coelacanth was a fish thought to have died out with the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period 65 million years ago. Additional specimens of the coelacanth have since been found in the waters of the Comoros, Kenya, Tanzania, Continue Reading

The Illusion of the Cladogram

From KHouse.Org Most of modern scientists assume that all life today evolved from single-celled organisms over the past several billion years. Since that assumption is pretty settled for the majority, biologists don’t bother questioning it. Instead, they assume it to be true, and spend time trying to figure out the evolutionary relationships of animals. What is the nearest common ancestor of both the frog and the newt? What are the Continue Reading

A Clarification – “Humans Were Human Earlier Than Thought”

From KHouse.Org In the April 24, 2012 eNews article "Humans Were Human Earlier Than Thought,"  we argued that Homo erectus was indeed a human - while using the "millions of years" terminology of the paleoanthropologists.  We regret we did not clarify the long-held Koinonia House position that humankind did not, in fact, evolve from apes at all, but was specially created by God a few thousand years ago.   The point of the article was that Continue Reading

Solar Flares, Radioactive Decay, and the Age of the Earth

From KHouse.Org From their first books on dinosaurs, our children are told that life was evolving "millions of years ago." The majority of geologists today tell us that radioisotope dating has narrowed the age of Earth to about 4.5 billion years, give or take 330 million. Recently, two dating methods have been updated, and scientists say the earth might not be as old as they thought it was, but they may not recognize how "off" the dating Continue Reading

Humans were Human earlier than thought

From KHouse.Org Science artists love to depict early humankind as intelligent apes – standing upright, but hairy in a specifically primate-looking fashion, eyes and ears high on the head.  Yet, as paleoanthropologists uncover more information about ancient humans, the evidence consistently points toward a race of beings that were intelligent and capable, different from anatomically modern humans primarily in that they camped out in Continue Reading

NASA Specialist Axed Over Intelligent Design

From News.Yahoo.Com A computer specialist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is going to court over allegations that he was wrongfully terminated because of his belief in intelligent design. Openings statements in the lawsuit by David Coppedge were expected Monday afternoon in Los Angeles Superior Court. Coppedge, who worked as a team lead on the Cassini mission exploring Saturn and its many moons, claims he was discriminated against Continue Reading

Unnatural Selection: Is Evolving Reproductive Technology Ushering In A New Age Of Eugenics?

From The Globe and Mail.Com Humanity has long dreamed of perfection, striving to be faster, stronger and brighter, pushing nature to the limit. Four centuries before people were conceived in a petri dish, Swiss alchemist Paracelsus claimed flawless little beings could be grown in pumpkins filled with urine and horse dung, but there is no record he produced a crop. With the birth of Louise Brown in 1978, the test tube finally succeeded Continue Reading

God does not create and then abandon

Psalm 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy Book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. He doesn’t create and then abandon. WHATEVER HE CREATES HE FAITHFULLY OVERSEES, GUIDES, HELPS AND NOURISHES. We begin to realize that He who fashioned such an intricate and complex creation can surely oversee and bring to completion the complexities that Continue Reading
