Plot Summary:

The Creation Response Team is using their last funds to help with a video project at Niagara Falls. That’s when they meet the Explorer’s Society, an evolutionary team known for their outstanding contributions to science since 1850. And now the Society’s daredevil, Jack, is going to ride a jet-ski over the falls, unless a jealous saboteur is successful at stopping him — at any cost! Join the adventure as the CRT saves Jack and challenges the Explorer’s Society on the national TV show, “Battle of the Worldviews!” (Taken from here.)

Countering Evolution…Intelligently

If one wants to oppose something, one needs to understand what the opposition is.  Makes sense, right?

Creation or Evolution: Do We Have to Choose?One of the books I am reading at the moment is Creation or Evolution: Do We Have to Choose? by Denis Alexander. Dr Alexander is a Christian and a scientist.  His book is very heavy at times, especially the chapters (three of them!) on what scientists mean by Evolution. Or rather, they seem heavy to me; I get troubled by the long words and even when I can read the words, the sentences don’t make sense.  I am sure he has already dumbed the material down to the most basic level without leaving any important bits out, so I don’t blame him at all for my slowness in trying to grasp the material. In any case, this blogpost is not about that.

A Lesson from “The King and I”

I first watched this movie years ago.  I found the DVD at my local library and borrowed it.

I found the following scene (the first few minutes) really interesting.

King: Moses, Moses, Moses…I think he shall have been a fool. Here it stands written by him that the world was created in six days.  Now you know and I know that it took many ages to create world. I think he shall have been a fool to have written so.  What is your opinion?

Anna: Is that why Your Majesty sent for me at this hour of the night?

King: That is not reason, but first I wish to discuss Moses. Now, how am I to ever learn truth if different English books state different things?

Anna: Your Majesty, the Bible was not written by men of science, but by men of faith.  It was their explanation of the miracle of creation, which is the same miracle whether it took six days or many centuries.

Here is a comparison chart I found on the Origin Science website.
