What Does the Fossil Record Say? – Dr. Marcus Ross

What Does the Fossil Record Say? – Dr. Marcus Ross

Play

Fossils are the preserved remains of creatures that lived long ago. But, just how long ago? According to evolutionary theory, the fossil record shows how life evolved over millions of years. According to the creation account, the fossil record was formed quickly during a worldwide flood. It would have buried sea creatures first and then eventually land creatures as well, accounting for the order we see in the fossil record. Earth only had one history, so which theory is correct?

Kevin’s guest on the show today is Dr. Marcus Ross. Dr. Ross is a paleontologist who teaches at Liberty University. Marcus Ross has loved paleontology (especially dinosaurs) since he was a kid growing up in Rhode Island.  He has continued pursuing this passion, currently researching about a group of extinct marine reptiles called mosasaurs.  He is greatly interested in issues surrounding the creation-evolution controversy and the intersection of geology with the Biblical events of creation and Noah’s Flood.

Dr. Ross believes that the evidence from geology and paleontology points to the truth of the creation account and the event of a worldwide flood and he’s here to tell you why. Tune in for this information packed show and learn about the supporting evidence for the biblical accounts of creation and the flood.

A Real Life Adam and Eve? – Dr. Robert Carter

A Real Life Adam and Eve? – Dr. Robert Carter

Play

DNA holds many mysteries. It is the instruction book for all life on earth and is a complicated code that scientists are trying to unravel. But could it actually be used to prove whether the biblical story of Adam and Eve is historically accurate? Our guest Dr. Robert Carter believes this is so through the advancements in the analysis of mitochondrial DNA.

Dr. Carter obtained a BS in Applied Biology from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1992. He then spent four years teaching high school biology, chemistry, physics, and electronics before going to the University of Miami to obtain his Ph.D. in Marine Biology. He successfully completed this program in 2003 with a dissertation on “Cnidarian Fluorescent Proteins.” While in Miami, he studied the genetics of pigmentation in corals and other invertebrates, designed and built an aquaculture facility for Caribbean corals, performed well over 500 SCUBA dives, many of them at night, and licensed a spin-off product of his research (a patented fluorescent protein) to a biotech company.

Tune in for an information packed show and find out whether mitochondrial DNA can trace the human race back to a single woman.

A Review of “The Shack” – Greg Koukl

Play

“The Shack” is a movie based on the book by the same title written by Christian author, William P. Young. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips spirals into a deep depression that causes him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.

Today on the show, Kevin has Greg Koukl, an apologist and president of Stand to Reason. He is here to discuss the possibly controversial theology presented in the movie. Mainly, is it biblical to depict God as three distinct people and to depict God the Father as a woman? The answer may surprise you. Greg also shares some of his incredible apologetics knowledge and presents arguments and answers to some of the tough questions in Christianity.

Activist Mommy on Censorship – Elizabeth Martin Johnston

Activist Mommy on Censorship – Elizabeth Martin Johnston

Play

Censorship. Is it a benign tool used to prevent hate and prejudice or a weapon used to silence people who have a conservative and/or Christian worldview? To answer this important question, Kevin has Elizabeth Martin Johnston on the show today. She is better known as the Activist Mommy to her fans.

Elizabeth is an Activist Vlogger (video blogger) who educates about current events and topics that are important to families. The pulse behind everything Elizabeth does is her love for Jesus Christ, who saved her from her sin during her teenage years and launched her on a very unpredictable journey of service to Him, which has included foreign missions, orphanage ministry, outreach to kids in troubled inner-city areas, backyard bible clubs, street ministry, pro-life rescue ministry, public speaking, producing a movie, and homeschooling her ever-growing family.

Elizabeth is on a mission to expose the double standard of censorship. She has personally been on the receiving end of censorship, being banned from Facebook twice for taking a biblical stance on homosexuality. She is gathering evidence to expose Facebook for being biased against the worldview she holds to. If you’re watching today and you have experienced similar bias, Elizabeth asks that you contact her through her website at http://activistmommyofficial.com.

Today on the show Kevin has two amazing experts, Dr. Del Tackett and Dr. Andrew Snelling, to talk about an exciting new movie called “Is Genesis History”. Is Genesis History? is a comprehensive documentary featuring scientists and scholars looking at the world and explaining how it intersects with the history recorded in Genesis. From rock layers to fossils to lions to stars, this fascinating film will challenge and change the way you see the world. Showing in theaters as a one-night event on Thursday, February 23 only (tickets at http://www.fathomevents.com/event/is-genesis-history), Is Genesis History? shines new light on our origins, providing a positive argument for Biblical Creation and the Flood. Dr. Del Tackett, the creator of “The Truth Project,” serves as your guide—hiking through canyons, climbing up mountains, and diving below the sea—in an exploration of two competing views … one compelling truth.

Dr. Del Tackett is the former president of the Focus on the Family Institute and a former Senior Vice President of Focus on the Family. He is also the creator of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project—a nationwide initiative designed to bring the Christian worldview to the body of Christ. He’s here on the show today to talk about his role in the new movie and to share some of the amazing evidence that has been found.

Dr. Andrew Snelling will follow up with more evidence from Geology. Dr. Andrew Snelling has been involved in extensive creationist research in Australia and overseas, including the formation of all types of mineral deposits, radioactivity in rocks and radioisotopic dating, and the formation of metamorphic and igneous rocks, sedimentary strata and landscape features (e.g. Grand Canyon, USA, and Ayers Rock, Australia) within the biblical framework for earth history. As well as writing regularly and extensively in international creationist publications, Andrew has travelled around Australia and widely overseas (USA, UK, New Zealand, South Africa, Korea, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China) speaking in schools, churches, colleges and universities, particularly on the overwhelming scientific evidence consistent with the biblical account of Creation and Noah’s Flood.
