Er komen steeds meer aanwijzingen dat er in Israël, in de tijd van David, een koninkrijk was. Er zijn potscherven gevonden uit die tijd waarop een naam staat die ook in de Bijbel voorkomt: Esbaal. In 2012 zijn potscherven gevonden in Khirbet Qeiyafa, het Bijbelse Saaraim, vlak bij het Eikendal waar David Goliath versloeg. De...

Wat is het nut, het doel van pijn? Waar is God als ik pijn heb? Waar is God, juist als ik Hem het hardst nodig heb? Geloofstoerusting nodigde dominee Van Binsbergen uit om daar in een lezing bij stil te staan.The post Waar is God als ik pijn heb? appeared first on Het Logos Instituut.
“Professor, bestaat God?” Twee intelligente oogjes kijken naar een man die daar staat met zijn lange mantel. De jongen kijkt vol afwachting naar het peinzende gezicht van de professor en denkt bij zichzelf: “deze geleerde man is de professor, die weet toch alles?”. We zouden het op deze manier kunnen voorstellen. Zo is het echter...

Last week, ICR broke ground on its new Discovery Center for Science and Earth History. Special speakers included Henry Morris III, Jason Lisle, Beck Director Kip Daniel, and Pastor Robert Jeffress. With cutting-edge technology, this center will showcase the scientific evidence that affirms the biblical account of origins. More...
In een vorige bijdrage hebben we gezien dat dr. Gerdien de Jong in haar artikel in Radix, getiteld: ‘de onafhankelijkheid van geloof en wetenschap’ en E. Sober in zijn artikel: ‘Why methodological naturalism’ hebben aangegeven dat methodologisch naturalisme niet a priori noodzakelijk is. Een aspect wil ik graag nog expliciet voor het voetlicht brengen. Dat... Read more »The post Methodologisch naturalisme, waar wortelt Radix appeared first on Het Logos Instituut.
The fossil record shows that the amazing variety of insects has remained similar with no compelling evidence of insect evolution. Evolutionists state, “Recent research is causing zoologists to rethink their perceptions of arthropod phylogeny.” More...
No Free Lunch We have seen that a new evolution book co-authored by evolutionist Dennis Venema and Scot McKnight is influenced by the mythical Warfare Thesis (here and here) and makes erroneous arguments that the fossils, echolocation, and pseudogenes support evolution (here, here and here). We now move on to another topic: protein evolution. Proteins are composed of a linear string of amino acids, often hundreds in length, and perform all sorts of important tasks in the cell. They could not have evolved by any stretch of the imagination, and so pose a rather difficult problem for evolutionists. Our new…
The “Shared Error” Argument We have seen that a new evolution book co-authored by evolutionist Dennis Venema and Scot McKnight is influenced by the mythical Warfare Thesis (here and here) and makes erroneous arguments that the fossils and echolocation support evolution (here and here). We now move on to another topic: broken genes, or pseudogenes. This is a popular argument amongst evolutionists and Venema uses as his example the olfactory receptor genes. The idea here is that, in different species (such as the human and chimpanzee), the same damaging mutation can be found in the same pseudogenes. When we find…
Deep Explanatory Power? If you want to understand evolutionary thought just read the literature. Charles Darwin accurately characterized his 1859 book on evolution as “one long argument.” That argument was based on several popular religious beliefs leading to faulty science. For example, throughout the volume Darwin’s ideas rely on a popular religious doctrine called utilitarianism, and in Chapter Six Darwin explicitly states that his theory would absolutely fail without it.Ever since Darwin, little has changed. One after the other, evolutionists have attempted to explain and prove Darwin’s idea. And one after the other, they have simply confirmed that evolutionary thought…
I Feel Sorry For Her Child Ideas have consequences and to see the fruit of evolution we need look no further than abortion. If we were not created by God—if life arose by chance—then why should there be a right to life? But as the truth about evolution and abortion becomes more apparent, evolutionists become increasingly ugly. In this video, a hostile crowd expresses righteous indignation at the passage of laws making it less convenient to murder babies. A young lady sparks the anger with a question for her elected representative about why he thinks he has the right to…
From Ann Gibbons at Science: A remarkably complete skeleton introduced in 2010 as “the best candidate” for the immediate ancestor of our genus Homo may just be a pretender. Instead of belonging to the human lineage, the new species of Australopithecus sediba is more closely related to other hominins from South Africa that are on […]

From Anil Ananthaswamy at New Scientist: Welcome to one of the more provocative-sounding explanations of how the brain works, outlined in a set of 26 original papers, the second part of a unique online compendium updating us on current thinking in neuroscience and the philosophy of mind. In 2015, the MIND group founded by philosopher […]
From Wesley J. Smith at First Things: Science is never truly settled. Indeed, challenging seemingly incontrovertible facts and continually retesting long-accepted theories are crucial components of the scientific method. Examples of perceived truths overturned by subsequent discoveries are ubiquitous. Here’s just one: So-called junk DNA that does not encode proteins was, until relatively recently, thought […]

From molecular cancer biologist Ahmed Alkhateeb at Aeon: Science is in the midst of a data crisis. Last year, there were more than 1.2 million new papers published in the biomedical sciences alone, bringing the total number of peer-reviewed biomedical papers to over 26 million. However, the average scientist reads only about 250 papers a […]
Although many Greek and Roman statues and monuments now appear gleaming white (the result of years of weathering), they were originally brightly colored. Using technology, a team has digitally restored a panel from the Arch of Titus—which famously depicts captured treasures from Jerusalem’s Temple being paraded through Rome—to its original color.
