LUCY EXPOSED – Putting Human Evolution’s Leading Icon to Rest

Format: DVD
Running Time 50 Minutes

What can a handful of bone fragments tell us about the true origin of the ‘Lucy’ hominid? We’ve all seen it in a museum – The ascent from ape to man over millions of years — But if evolution is true, where are all the bones of these ape-like ancestors? Find out what the museums don’t tell you in this 50 minute special presentation titled: LUCY EXPOSED – Putting Human Evolution’s Leading Icon to Rest. Dr. Dan Biddle is president of Genesis Apologetics, with a P.h.D. in Organizational Psychology from Alliant University. He’s been an expert witness and consultant in scores of state and federal cases, in the area of statistical analysis. Pat Roy worked with Institute For Creation Research for 12 years, and has been the inspiration behind long-running audio dramas, including the popular series “Jonathan Park”

In, LUCY EXPOSED – Putting Human Evolution’s Leading Icon to Rest you will learn that:

“Evolution theory really is an imagination. It’s a figment that requires a lot of blind faith to believe because no one was there supposedly millions of years to observe and test and repeat what they say happened.” – Dr. Dan Biddle

“A good designer is going to use the same design components that work in different creatures.” – David Rives

“The school system spends hours and hours and all kinds of pages teaching our kids that we evolved from apes. But when they act like it, we hold them accountable like a spiritual being.” – Dr. Dan Biddle

The Hunters and the Hunted with David Rives and Mike Snavely on TBN

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 Permalink

Tune in to TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) this Friday, June 9th at 5:30pm Central to see this week’s episode of “Creation in the 21st Century.” Join the discussion as David and Mike Snavely of “Mission: Imperative!” briefly look at the concept of design versus accident. Can we really believe that the things we see in nature simply co-evolved to have a symbiotic relationship, or is there overwhelming evidence of design by a loving Creator? Watch this thrilling episode of Creation in the 21st Century and decide for yourself as Mike Snavely and David Rives discuss evidence that makes it VERY hard to deny the existence of a Creator God.

CLICK HERE to check out “The Hunters and the Hunted – Man is Without Excuse” DVD in the Creation Superstore

Creation is not a science theory.  You cannot put the concept to the test in the laboratory.  Creation ex nihilo (from nothing) is a biblical assertion.  Christians believe it for two reasons: 1) Because it’s what the Bible teaches regarding how God brought things into being, and 2) There is a vast amount of evidence for it.  Romans 1:20 tells us so.  Nature itself speaks so clearly that there is no excuse if we can’t see the evidence for creation all around us.  Nature tells us that there indeed was a designer, and the Bible tells us what that creator wants us to know about Him. Animal life around us is incredibly diverse.  Additionally, every creature has its own amazing capabilities.  Each one is complete, and fully functional in its environment.  If evolution is true, we should see many, many creatures struggling as their bodies evolve onwards and upwards to the next level.  We don’t see that at all. In this session, we look briefly at the concept of design versus accident, and we consider the amazing truths about instinct.  Furthermore, the size of each creature on earth relative to everything else speaks volumes!  Truly, we are without excuse if we cannot see the handiwork of God in nature! “…the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”  (Rom. 1: 20)

The Search for Extra-Solar Planets” with David Rives and Dr. Danny Faulkner on TBN

Monday, May 29, 2017 Permalink

Tune in to TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) this Friday, June 2nd at 5:30pm Central to see this week’s episode of “Creation in the 21st Century.” Join David Rives as he welcomes astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner to talk about extra-solar planets. What about extra-solar planets? Have we found life on other planets?  Have planets been found around other stars, and could they contain alien life? Are we being told the whole story? The answers are not as simple as it may seem. First, we have to look at the methods being used to observe these planets. Then we need to look at what data is being collected. Finally, we need to look at probability and Biblical historical texts that might give us clues as to what to expect in the far reaches of the Universe. News stories and media publicity about these planets are avoiding important issues regarding the science behind these finds.

DVD #1. “DASHA THEORY …A Starlight and Time Solution”

Watch 3 minute trailer of this DVD:

One of the most puzzling questions in astronomy: If the universe is relatively young – thousands of years – and stars are millions of light years away, wouldn’t it have taken the light from those stars millions of years to reach Earth? …and doesn’t this “PROVE” the Big Bang? Do creationists have a problem with distant starlight? Actually, starlight and time is a major problem for Big Bang cosmology. While Young Universe Cosmology doesn’t provide all the answers, a careful examination of the Hebrew word “Dasha” as found in the creation account might hold the key to understanding this dilemma.

DVD #2. “EXTRA-SOLAR PLANETS …and the Search for E.T. Life in Space”
What about extra-solar planets? Have we found life on other planets? Through the technology of today, we can peer into the outer expanses of the heavens, but out of the countless stars in the cosmos, surely there are other planets – And out of those planets, wouldn’t there be many like Earth? The answer is not as simple as it may seem. First, we have to look at the methods being used to observe these planets. Then we need to look at what data is being collected. Finally, we need to look at probability and Biblical historical texts that might give us clues as to what to expect in the far reaches of the Universe. News stories and media publicity about these planets are avoiding important issues regarding the science behind these finds.

DVD #3. “CRATERS Throughout the Solar System”
What do Craters throughout the Solar System tell us? Why do some planets have these features while others don’t? Does the far side of the moon look much different than the side we see from Earth? Evolutionists would tell us that impact craters throughout the solar system were formed over billions of years. But their relative ages can’t actually be traced to billions of years in the past. Dr. Danny Faulkner, PhD in Astronomy from Indiana University, and television host David Rives take you on a trip through our solar system. What can we learn from past impacts?

Binding: Hardback – Page Count: 350 – The Scriptures contain an incredible wealth of knowledge in what they communicate about the science of astronomy. Even more significantly, because the Scriptures are the inerrant word of God, what the Bible conveys to us about astronomy is of unparalleled importance in shaping our thinking on the subject. The Created Cosmos is an intensely detailed examination of the scriptural outlook on the cosmos, constructing an integrated understanding of what the Bible plainly teaches about astronomy, and answering complex questions about astronomy from the standpoint of a biblical worldview. This text investigates what the Bible has to say about astronomical objects and phenomena. The Bible contains many mentions of astronomical things, beginning with creation and concluding with end-time prophecies. Besides the sun and moon, the Bible names groups of stars, Orion, the Pleiades, and the bears. In addition to what the biblical record shows about astronomical phenomena, many people think that it teaches things that it actually does not teach. These concepts are examined in depth as well. Unique among books discussing the intersection of biblical text and astronomy because of the range of questions explored and answered definitive work that explores many popular questions and misconceptions about the universe and the Bible Sorts fact from fiction and truth from popular myths as the true purpose of these enigmatic lights in the night sky are revealed

  • Format: DVD
  • Length: 62 minutes
  • Technicality: Layman
  • Ages: 12 and up

One of the biggest debates in evangelical Christianity today is whether Adam and Eve were real people. Sadly, many theologians and scientists say that genetics has dis-proven the existence of an original couple specially created by God. As a consequence, many have have begun to redefine sin and salvation.

But the Bible’s language is clear that Adam and Eve were real people. Their historical existence and fall into sin are foundational to the gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition, the science of genetics – including human and chimp comparisons, mitochondrial and Y chromosome DNA, and human genetic variation – confirms and is consistent with the fact that all humans have descended from an original couple specifically created by God as described in Genesis.

What does God’s Word say about the races? Is evolutionary theory racist, and are some people “superior” to others? What did Charles Darwin imply when it comes to race, and are some cultures “superior” to others? What does the Bible say, and does scientific research in genetics back it up? The answers to these questions may surprise you… Bryan Osborne has a Master’s degree in Education from Lee University and taught Bible history in public school for 13 years. He is a speaker with Answers In Genesis, and has a passion for helping to combat the growing epidemic of Biblical illiteracy.

In this video you will learn that:

“Different people groups exist in the present.  As far as how they got there, that’s based on interpretation which is based on your starting assumptions.” – Bryan Osborne

“Evolution is not the origin of racism. The origin of racism is a three lettered word called sin.” – Bryan Osborne

“Scientifically speaking, essentially all people are the same color of skin – just different shades.” – Bryan Osborne

Exploring the Grand Canyon is a one-of-a-kind adventure. It is a World Heritage Site and one of the most amazing features on the face of the planet. The size and majesty of the Canyon is overwhelming, regardless of how many times you have viewed it, how many trails you have hiked, or how many river miles you have traveled. It is also a mystery!

Most will agree that the Grand Canyon was carved by water. But how and when is where the mystery lies. Was it formed slowly over millions of years or quickly in a catastrophic event? This debate falls into two camps, which hold to vastly divergent worldviews. This True North Guide examines the geological and ecological evidence and lets you decide which of those worldviews is best supported by the data.

  • Contains 26 fold-out pages with maps, special overlook features, and more!
  • Discover the Canyon’s wildlife, vegetation, fossils, geology, and history!

Most visitors to Grand Canyon simply visit the rim overlooks, wishing they had a geologist standing with them to point out and explain what they see. This book is even better than that, because it also includes details of the ecology and history of the Canyon, and you can take it home with you as an ongoing reference, and a wonderful souvenir of your visit. And there is nothing else like it available. Beautifully and thoroughly illustrated with clear and easy-to-read, logical explanations of how the Canyon and its layers formed, it is a must-have companion to everyone’s Grand Canyon visit.

Better still, the authors provide an alternative explanation to the traditional claims that the layers in the Canyon walls and the Canyon carved into them took millions of years of snail-paced geologic processes to form. Instead, they convincingly demonstrate that the evidence indicates that these layers were rapidly deposited in a global flood, and the Canyon was catastrophically carved by its retreating waters. I wholeheartedly endorse this Canyon guide and can’t recommend it highly enough. Read it and you will broaden your understanding of the Canyon and enjoy your Canyon visit more. – Dr. Andrew Snelling, Geologist

Seven Billion People – Six Thousand Years – with David Rives and Dr. Robert Carter on TBN

Tune in to TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) this Friday, April 28th at 5:30pm Central to see this week’s episode of “Creation in the 21st Century.” Join David Rives as he welcomes Dr. Robert Carter to the program. One of the most popular arguments for millions of years of Earth history is the subject of human population. If the global flood of Noah’s day ended around only 4.500 years ago, is that enough time to produce the numbers of people that we have on earth today? Dr. Robert Carter and David Rives ‘crunch the numbers’ and look at some revealing statistics that show that the current human population could easily have been produced within the Biblical time frame of thousands of years….not millions.

Click the picture below to watch the official trailer for the “Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels” Documentary

This Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels set directly demolishes the very pillars of the belief system that underpins our now-secular culture —evolutionary naturalism. They are coupled with the Biblical command to reach the lost with the Bible’s Good News. In a nutshell, it’s a comprehensive outreach tool like no other. Appropriately, the Achilles’ Heels of evolution are often in the very areas widely considered to be impregnable strongholds of this belief system. We believe evolution theory has no answer to these weaknesses, once properly explained and understood. Like no other work that we are aware of, the Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels set is the result of collaborations by Ph.D. scientists, in a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument against the philosophy of evolution. All of the contributors received their doctorates from similar secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in a field relevant to the subject covered. With visually stunning animations and dramatic footage, the Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels DVD features the input of 15 Ph.D. scientists, including the 9 collaborating authors of the full-color illustrated book: Donald Batten, Robert Carter, David Catchpoole, John Hartnett, Mark Harwood, Jim Mason, Jonathan Sarfati, Emil Silvestru and Tasman Walker. The Foreword is written by Carl Wieland. The book was edited by Robert Carter.
