    All rational people have thought about what happened in the beginning, but not everyone has come to the same conclusion. Thinking Creation is not only about why thinking Christians embrace the Biblical creation, but also how this doctrine makes sense of the sometimes confusing reality we experience and the development of competing philosophies. This video series is designed to serve as the beginning of a conversation, not the end; it is about reality in the past, present and future. Embracing a thoughtful understanding of creation frees believers from irrational philosophies built on events that don’t happen, and liberates them to embrace the beauty evident in nature. In other words, Thinking Creation is about a beginning, the beginning of a liberating journey to understand ourselves, our universe and our Creator God. The Great Debate is the first episode in this series. It traces some of the philosophies that, over the course of millennia, have lead to the various ideas about origins that are current today. Some of the thinkers discussed include Democritus, Epicurus, Lucretius, Aristotle, the Apostles John and Paul, Thomas Aquinas and David Hume among others. As much as possible, the original words – or at least reasonable English translations – of these thinkers are used.

      What does the functionality, intelligence, and design tell us about the creation of the universe? What can we infer about its Creator? The design of life and the cosmos point to a Designer who cares about each one of us.

      • The Argument from Efficient Causality for the Existence of God (Part 3) (TRtB #43)

        Released: July 1, 2014 By: Daniel Whyte III Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22. It reads, "Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil." Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from John Lennox. He said, "We have only to see a few letters of the alphabet spelling our name in the sand to recognize at once the work of an intelligent agent. How much more likely, then is the existence of an intelligent Creator behind human DNA, the colossal biological database that contains no fewer than 3.5 billion "letters" - the longest "word" yet discovered?" Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "The Argument from Efficient Causality for the Existence of God" (part 3) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli: Why not have an endless series of caused causes stretching backward into the past? Then everything would be made actual and would actually be --- even though their causes might no longer exist. First, if the kalam argument is right, there could not exist an endless series of causes stretching backward into the past. But suppose that such a series could exist. The argument is not concerned about the past, and would work whether the past is finite or infinite. It is concerned with what exists right now. Even as you read this, you are dependent on other things; you could not, right now exist without them. Suppose there are seven such things. If these seven things did not exist, neither would you. Now suppose that all seven of them depend for their existence right now on still other things. Without these, the seven you now depend on would not exist --- and neither would you. Imagine that the entire universe consists of you and the seven things sustaining you. If there is nothing besides that universe of changing, dependent things, then the universe --- and you as part of it --- could not be. For everything that is would right now need to be given being; but there would be nothing capable of giving it. And yet you are and it is. So there must in that case exist something besides the universe of dependent things --- something not dependent as they are. And if it must exist in that case, it must exist in this one. In our world there are surely more than seven things that need, right now, to be given being. But that need is not diminished by there being more than seven. As we imagine more and more of them --- even an infinite number, if that were possible --- we are simply expanding the set of beings that stand in need. And this need --- for being, for existence --- cannot be met from within the imagined set. But obviously it has been met, since contingent beings exist. Therefore there is a source of being on which our material universe right now depends.

          01:07:35

          from John MacArthur / Added

          http://www.gty.org/video/international/RU-V8290-359 English Title: The Theology of Creation (Selected Scriptures) John MacArthur Богословие сотворения. Сотворение это богословское понятие, а не научное. Богословие является единственным источником, из которого мы черпаем информацию о сотворении. Любое изучение сотворения должно быть в рамках богословия, потому что сотворение -- это Слово, исходящее от Бога. Богословие, между прочим, раньше называлось царицей наук. Оно было названо царицей наук, потому что в окончательном рассмотрении истина, господствующая над всем -- это богословие. Библейское богословие -- это откровение Бога в Писании, превосходящее все другие источники информации и знания. И поэтому многие века сотворение было богословским понятием, а не научным. Затем появился Дарвин, и Дарвин убрал предмет «сотворение» из богословия и попытался поместить его в сферу человеческих знаний, что было совсем не полезно для человечества....

            Released: May 1, 2014 By: Daniel Whyte III Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is Isaiah 50:4. It reads, "The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned." Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Dr. Walter Bradley. He said, "Discoveries of the last half of the 20th century have brought the scientific community to the realization that our universe and our planet in the universe are so remarkably unique that it is almost impossible to imagine how this could have happened accidentally, causing many agnostic scientists to concede that indeed some intelligent creative force may be required to account for it." Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "Identity of Faith and Reason and Dualism" from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli: Position 3, that of an identity between what is knowable by faith and what is knowable by reason, is a logical possibility, but no one we know of has ever held it. Dualism is a popular position today because it reflects the "separation of church and state," religion and philosophy, sacred and secular, that characterizes the modern era. Dualism simply divorces faith and reason, placing them into two different compartments. It usually does this by (a) reducing reason to scientific, mathematical, and empirical reasoning, and (b) reducing faith to a personal, subjective attitude. Thus reason and faith correspond to the public and private sectors. It seems reasonable to hold such dualism if you believe some esoteric Eastern religion based on private mystical experience; but unreasonable if you are a Christian, a Jew or a Muslim (all of whom have been called "the People of the Book"), someone who believes in a religion of public, pro-positional revelation. It also seems cowardly not to meet the unbeliever's challenge to fight on a common field (reason) but instead to withdraw to a private one (faith as conceived here in a merely subjective way --- a fundamental misunderstanding of "faith," judged by historic Christian standards).

                Roger Williams established the Rhode Island colony on the principles of individual freedom -- a radical concept that included full-blown religious liberty. But such freedom did not exist in other colonies, where folks who observed Saturday as a day of worship ran afoul of laws requiring that Sunday be kept as the holy day. Even in recent years some Sabbath keepers have suffered persecution, coercion and loss of employment because of their religious practice. In spite of that, the Sabbath of Creation and the Ten Commandments is more popular than ever, with more than twenty million Sabbath keepers worldwide. Hosted by Hal Holbrook. 85 minutes.

                  Human Origins(?) by Brian Thomas, M.S. - December 20, 2013 Excerpt: Three major pillars supporting a human-chimp link crashed in 2013. 1. Genetic similarity (70% instead of 98%) 2. beta-globin pseudogene (functional instead of leftover junk) 3. Chromosome 2 fusion site (encodes a functional feature within an important gene instead of a being a fusion site) All three key genetic pillars of human evolution (for Darwinists) turned out to be specious—overstatements based on ignorance of genetic function. http://www.icr.org/article/7867/ Comprehensive Analysis of Chimpanzee and Human Chromosomes Reveals Average DNA Similarity of 70% - by Jeffrey P. Tomkins - February 20, 2013 Excerpt: For the chimp autosomes, the amount of optimally aligned DNA sequence provided similarities between 66 and 76%, depending on the chromosome. In general, the smaller and more gene-dense the chromosomes, the higher the DNA similarity—although there were several notable exceptions defying this trend. Only 69% of the chimpanzee X chromosome was similar to human and only 43% of the Y chromosome. Genome-wide, only 70% of the chimpanzee DNA was similar to human under the most optimal sequence-slice conditions. While, chimpanzees and humans share many localized protein-coding regions of high similarity, the overall extreme discontinuity between the two genomes defies evolutionary timescales and dogmatic presuppositions about a common ancestor. http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/arj/v6/n1/human-chimp-chromosome Alleged Human Chromosome 2 “Fusion Site” Encodes an Active DNA Binding Domain Inside a Complex and Highly Expressed Gene—Negating Fusion - 2013 http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/arj/v6/n1/human-chromosome-fusion

                    The Creation of the Universe, including Dinosaurs, according to the book of Genesis chapter 1. Did God create the heavens and the earth in 6 days as recorded in the book of Genesis? Or is the Creation Account in Genesis only a myth invented by superstitious people as Atheists and Evolutionists assert today? The Creation Account in Genesis in the Bible tells us that God made the heavens and the earth by his divine power. "Genesis 1: God's Amazing Creation - Dinosaurs" shows that nature exhibits Intelligent Design and not the random chance ascribed to it by the theory of evolution. Science and Theology are in harmony when both are understood correctly. Archaeology and the fossil record also provide evidence that dinosaurs dwelt on earth with humans!
