How Does God Reveal Himself

If God is real, why doesn't He reveal Himself to us In a way that should erase any doubt of His existence In reality, He has done this many times.

The Importance of Life Sustaining Water

So many of our planet's forms of life are dependent on an environment In which liquid water Is stable. This means that the earth must not be too close or too far from the sun. Astronomers estimate that If the distance from the earth to the sun changed by as little as 2 percent, all life would be extinguished as water either froze or evaporated. Another factor making life on earth possible Is an unusual characteristic of water when It freezes Into Ice. Water Is such a common substance that most...

Our Awesome Universe How Big Is

The size of our solar system alone not to mention the Milky Way galaxy Is so large that It defies Imagination. Let's try to visualize It on a scale we can begin to comprehend. Let's first envision our sun as the size of an orange. On that scale, the earth Is a grain of sand orbiting the sun 30 feet away. The gigantic planet Jupiter, many times larger than Earth, Is a cherry pit circling 200 feet away. Saturn, the size of a slightly smaller cherry pit, orbits two blocks away mm the sun. Pluto Is...

But all too often they are remarkably silent about this aspect of their findings. Recent breakthroughs In understanding the cell, the basic building block of life, are a case In point. Michael Behe, associate professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University In Pennsylvania, after analyzing extensive research at the molecular level, decided to go public with Its...

Why Were You Born

The atheistic theory of evolution argues that life evolved by chance with no ultimate purpose or plan.

Unlike all other creatures, God created man In His own Image and likeness...
