  • ENCODE Junks Evolutionary Concept

    January 1, 2013

    For several decades, biochemists thought a vast proportion of most organisms’ genomes consisted of junk—DNA sequences that once had value but decayed into nonfunctional elements as a result of undirected biochemical processes and random chemical and physical events.

  • Intuitive Knowledge and the Image of God, Part 2 of 4

    December 27, 2012

    A recent study determined that many people display a purely intuitive resistance to biological evolution. An alternate paradigm—God’s image in every human—accounts for this resistance by explaining that we are able to perceive creation’s “testimony” to the Creator’s existence (Psalm 19:1–4; Romans 1:18–20). Part 2 of this series more precisely defines and characterizes this testimony.

  • Intuitive Knowledge and the Image of God, Part 1 of 4

    December 24, 2012

    In a study of university biology students, researchers found that people often experience an innate, intuitive resistance to accepting Darwinian evolution as an explanation for life’s existence and diversity. In this four-part series, I will explore the implications of this study and the support it provides to the biblical worldview.

  • TNRTB Classic: The Incarnation

    December 20, 2012

    As we draw nearer to the celebration of Christmas, we might take time to reflect on why the birth of Christ is the most significant event in human history.

  • The End Will Come, Just Not Later This Week

    December 17, 2012

    Many world religions predict an end to this world. Christianity does, too; however, it emphasizes the futility of trying to predict doomsday’s timing and instead instructs all humanity to focus on living in a way that is pleasing to God. In many doomsday predictions—such as the December 21, 2012, date based on the ancient Mayan calendar—

  • A Brief Update on the Long-Term Evolution Experiment

    December 13, 2012

    A few days ago, I discussed a recent study that revealed the mutation rates in the E. coli genome are not random as expected by the evolutionary paradigm. Rather, these rates are nonrandom and optimized to minimize the deleterious effects of mutations.

  • Nonrandom Mutations Scramble the Case for Common Descent

    December 10, 2012

    New work by researchers from Great Britain reveals that mutation rates in the genome of E. coli are nonrandom and optimized to minimize their impact on survival. This optimization adds to the case for intelligent design.

    December 6, 2012

    Many creatures and natural events appear to have been designed to assist in keeping our planet’s temperature suitable for advanced life. Visit these previous TNRTBs for a few examples

  • Thank God for Sand

    December 3, 2012

    Sand plays a crucial role in sustaining human civilization and Earth’s life. The ongoing production of sand is critically important for compensating for the Sun’s increasing luminosity.

  • TNRTB Classic: A Well-Ordered Challenge to Biological Evolution

    November 15, 2012

    A few days ago I wrote about research results obtained by French scientists that run counter to a key prediction of the evolutionary paradigm: namely that gene synteny should reflect evolutionary relationships by decreasing as the evolutionary relatedness of organisms diminishes.

  • Plant Chromosome Structures Challenge Biological Evolution

    November 12, 2012

    Researchers from France recently examined the structure of the coffee tree, tomato, and grapevine genomes. Surprisingly, the results of their work fail to satisfy a key prediction of the evolutionary paradigm—namely, that the ordering of genes along chromosomes (called synteny) should reflect the evolutionary relatedness of these plants.
