Greetings in the name of the Lord! This is the latest edition of the update for the Evidence for God from Science website. Many new pages have been added in the last two months.


As a Christian, you have much to be thankful for. Join with me in giving thanks to God for all He has done. If you have a special story you would like to share with others about what God has done for you, write a short essay and submit it to this site. The 5 best essays will be featured on the site and the authors will be given a free Evidence for God from Science CD-ROM (see below).

Deadline for submission is December 13, 1999

Apologetics

Jesus Christ - the Messiah of the Rabbinical Writers The charge is often made that the prophetic scriptures cited by the writers of the New Testament do not refer to the Messiah, but to other people, places, or events. However, this paper demonstrates that even the rabbinical writers recognized the messianic nature of these prophecies. Some of these writings are, of themselves prophetic, and contain prophecies not even found in the Old Testament scriptures. One stunning example is from the Sibylline Oracles, which were written during the period of 184-117 B.C.:

"And being beaten He shall be silent lest any one should know what the word is, or whence it came, that it may speak with mortals; and HE SHALL WEAR THE CROWN OF THORNS." Sibylline Oracles (B.C. 184-117)

Racism in the Bible? The claim is often made that the Bible is racist and that Christianity encourages racism. While there are people who claim the name of Christ and preach racist hatred in Christian churches, the Bible does not condone, but actually condemns this kind of behavior. This paper examines what the Bible actually says about racism (includes references to over 100 scriptures).

Evolution/Creation

Two new pages have been added, in addition to updates to virtually every other page in the evolution department.

Implications of Evolution in Morality, Culture, and Society Evolutionists like to claim that evolutionary theory is independent of morality. However, evolution has profound implications in the areas of human worth, purpose, and morality:

Young Earth Creationism

A new department has been added as a result of inquiries about young earth scientific claims.

Is the Speed of Light Decreasing? - An analysis of the theoretical and observational flaws in the hypothesis that the speed of light was much faster in the past.

http://www.GodAndScience.org/youngearth/speedlight.html

Is the Young-Earth Interpretation Biblical? - A young-earth interpretation of the creation account can be scripturally sound, but the prevalent young-earth interpretation is not.

http://www.GodAndScience.org/youngearth/youngearth.html


Projects being worked on:

Creationary Model for the Universe and Life on Earth will be a
comprehensive model for the universe that fits both biblical accounts and
scientific data. It is a much-requested (by evolutionists) creationary
model. One of the most common complaints from evolutionists is that we
criticize evolution without providing a reasonable alternative. This page
will be an attempt to answer their charge.

Famous Scientists of Faith

All ways lead to God - An examination of this popular belief is shown to be logically impossible.
