Having Faith in Flood Geology – Dogmatic Assertions of Evidence

A comment on another site captures the essence of where I think Christians who have been told the Bible teaches the earth must be young are putting their confidence. Their confidence is placed in the belief that experts in scientific fields have provided them with not only enough evidence but overwhelming evidence that earth is young. This person is putting his faith in experts which, he admits, have bolstered his faith in the Word of God.

Walter Brown and the Origin of Asteroids and Impact Craters on other Planets

Meteor Crater in Arizona

Sometimes you run across an article so ridiculous you can hardly believe you just read it.  Such is the case with a chapter of Walter Brown’s book “In the Beginning.”    The whole book has significant problems but while I was delving a bit deeper into the origins of meteorites and asteroids and the appearance of […]
