NEW CREATIONIST APOLOGETICS MINISTRY

PMT 2017-088 by Jason Lisle (Biblical Science Institute)

[Gentry introductory note: As one who is committed to the biblical worldview, I am not only a postmillennialist but a Six-day Creationist. Both of these positions flow directly from Scripture. Creationism is not only an important issue in itself, but also an excellent apologetics tool. Dr. Jason Lisle has begun a new ministry called “Biblical Science Institute.” Dr. Lisle is a Van Til presuppositionalist and an excellent scientist, being an astrophysicist. I highly recommend it to those interested not only in Six-day Creation but also apologetics.]

Friends of the Biblical Science Institute, thank you for your interest in defending the Christian Faith. In our second month of operation, we have a number of exciting new faith-affirming resources. We were able to document the August 21 Solar Eclipse; this was the first transcontinental eclipse over North America in 99 years. We traveled to the path of totality to experience this amazing event first hand, and have compiled an online video to share this experience with you. We hope you enjoy it! We are so grateful that the Lord granted us traveling mercies, and clear skies. We also posted a new web article describing eclipses and their relevance to creation. Continue reading

PMT 2017-049 by Mike Warren (Christian Civilization Blog)

Point 5:
Postmillennialism was an important influence in the Scientific Revolution.

Postmillennialism supports the argument for the Christian basis for science since postmillennialism was an important influence in the Scientific Revolution.

The influence of the postmillennial eschatology of the Puritan Revolution in England (1626-1660) on the Scientific Revolution requires some discussion of related issues of biblical hermeneutics and belief in a literal Adam and Eve. Continue reading

HOW CARL SAGAN RUINED SCIENCE

PMT 2017- 037 by Robert Tracinski (The Federalist)

The organizers of the ‘March for Science’ follow the legacy of substituting a political narrative for the distinctive language and methods of science.

Robert Tracinski writes: I am a Carl Sagan fan from way back. His 1980 TV miniseries “Cosmos” hit me at just the right age and inflamed a lifelong love of science. But we’ve had nearly 40 years to assess the long-term effects and see how Sagan unwittingly contributed to a trend that muddled public understanding of science. This weekend’s so-called “March for Science” is a perfect example of what went wrong. Continue reading

SCIENTIFIC MYTHS ABOUT THE BIBLE

flat-earthPMT 2017-018 by Justin Taylor (The Gospel Coaltion)

Ronald Numbers grew up as the son of a fundamentalist Seventh-day Adventist minister, attending Adventist schools and being taught young-earth creationism until adulthood, where he lost his faith and became an agnostic. Today he is perhaps the world’s leading scholar on the history of the relationship between science and religion.

If you were to ask Professor Numbers for the “greatest myth” about the historical relationship between science and religion, he would respond that it’s the idea the the two “have been in a state of constant conflict.” Continue reading
