Evidence for God from Science Newsletter October, 2003

Greetings in the name of the Lord! This is the latest edition of the update for the Evidence for God website. Welcome to our new subscribers. This update is somewhat abbreviated, due to preparation for the upcoming lecture, Testing the Creation Model of the LDS Church.

News

Terri Schiavo, sentenced to death by Florida judge George Greer, has been given a reprieve by the Florida legislature. The Florida House and Senate both passed emergency legislation ordering that she be fed. The original order by the judge had set a dangerous precedent by declaring that certain lives were unworthy of continuing.


Authenticity of the Bible

A new study in the respected scientific journal Nature examined the biblical claim that Hezekiah had built the Siloam Tunnel during his reign (between 727 B.C. and 698 B.C.). Skeptics had claimed that the tunnel was built in the second century B.C. The carbon-14 date placed the date of plants embedded in the plaster of the tunnel between 800 and 700 B.C - exactly what the Bible said.

Aberrant Theology

This year for my lecture at the Center for Research in the Sciences (CRIS) at Azusa Pacific University, I will be presenting Testing the Creation Model of the LDS Church. If you are in Southern California, you can attend the lecture this Wednesday, October 22 at 7:30 pm.

The page that discusses archeological and anthropological contradictions in the Book of Mormon has been updated and rewritten. In addition to the new research, the page contains many graphics that depict the true nature of ancient cultures in the Americas.
