On the subject of Bats…

*Have you heard of the biblical bat contradiction?    You may have heard that the Bible is full of contradictions. Let’s examine one such supposed contradiction.

In Leviticus 11:13-19 a bat is called a bird, “These are the birds you are to detest and not to each because they are detestable: the eagle… and the bat.”

Everyone knows that a bat is not a bird! So is the Bible wrong?

The original Hebrew for bird is owph which means “winged creature”. So now replace “birds” with “winged creatures” and you can see that the Bible is clearly not contradicting itself.

If you think that there are contradictions in the Bible, it is most likely the translation that you are reading, so do some research to find what the original language actually said!

Gods word is perfect and simply cannot contradict itself.

Thy word is true from the beginning… Psalm 119:160

NEW EXHIBIT – The Mystery of Dragons and Dinosaurs: The Real History and True Science Behind the Legends

Have you seen the newest exhibit at the Creation & Earth History Museum?

Dino max 3

These new displays focus on fantastic legends of dragons and how they mysteriously have a common theme; large reptilian beasts that often bear an uncommon resemblance to modern-day reconstructions of dinosaurs! You will find replicas of historical artifacts that depict eye-witness accounts of these creatures as well as scientific evidence for dinosaurs having roamed the earth in recent history.

Dino 15

Special thanks to Mark Armitage who provided these actual fossils that are a WORLD’S FIRST DISCOVERY! These very significant pieces of Triceratops horn and Triceratops frill are the first of their kind! Never before has a Triceratops horn or frill been found containing soft tissue and we have actual pieces of these fossils on display! Unfossilized soft tissue in dinosaur bones provides convincing evidence that the bones are not millions of years old. There is no known means that could preserve such tissues for such enormous periods of time. Microbes, and chemical and physical erosion would completely disintegrate the fragile tissues.

Dino 14

Stop by the museum today and ask to see these new amazing additions.

The Creation & Earth History Museum is located at 10946 Woodside Ave. N, Santee, CA 92071

Business Hours are:

10 am – 6 pm Monday through Saturday

Hope to see you there!

The Truth About Salt – Creation Minute 6

CM Logo Final J

The Truth About Salt

Salt 7

Are you enjoying those salty fries? Have you ever wondered where the rock salt that was needed for that seasoning originated?

In addition to its famous role in the human diet, salt has numerous uses in chemical production and processing as well as in many other industries. Salt mining and production remains a major source of employment in the United States and across the world.

Salt 9

Although a lot of salt comes from distant locales such as Chile’s Great Salt Flat, there is a good chance that the salt used on your fries probably came from an enormous pure salt deposit covering an estimated 600,000 square miles deep below Northern Ohio and New York. The salt from this deposit is so pure that it can be ground up and immediately used for human consumption – containing essentially no contamination from sand, wind-blown dust, plant or animal fragments and debris, etc.

Salt Storage

How did such an enormous deposit form? The standard explanation is that a salt water depression repeatedly filled and evaporated over huge periods of time, leaving the salt behind in what is called and evaporite formation.

Unrefined Salt

Unrefined salt, Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah.

Yet the ultra-pure characteristics and massive size of this deposit make that extremely unlikely. In fact,  for a deposit that huge to form, it would have required a column of sea water 80 miles thick and the deepest ocean basin is only 7 miles deep! And that salt deposit would not be pure, but mixed with other sediment.

The Bible provides a better explanation for such deposits. During the worldwide flood, enormous vents opened up deep within the ocean as tectonic plates moved and continents were sliding into new positions. Today ocean vents spew forth supersaturated, mineral-laden fluids- but on a much smaller scale than what was happening during the flood. It is likely that an extremely supersaturated solution of salt formed in localized areas during the flood and as the supersaturated solution cooled, ultra-pure salt precipitated to form widespread salt deposits.

So as you reach for that salt shaker, realize that that salt was probably mined from a deposit laid down during Noah’s Flood.

The American Alligator – Creation Minute 5

CM Logo Final J

The Amazing Alligator

The American Alligator is a highly complex animal that is exquisitely designed for survival in swampy waters.

The armor plated alligator has thick scaly structures called scutes covering his body. Scutes (from the Latin Scuta meaning shield) are bony external plates. When a scute has a bony base it is called an osteoderm. The alligator has large osteoderms running down his back. These structures  protect him from many predators, such as fish, while the gator is young and still low on the food chain.

Alligator 5

 

The alligator is also perfectly camouflaged to its murky surroundings. Juveniles have high contrast markings to blend in to the reedy and grassy habitat along the water’s edge. These markings fade with age causing adults to appear a uniform black or dark green. This allows these apex predators to appear to be floating logs in the swamp, that is until they lunge with surprising agility and speed to catch their prey.

Alligator 6

The alligator is perfectly suited for his aquatic lifestyle. His eyes, nose and ear slits are all positioned on the top of his head, allowing most of his body to remain submerged while he monitors the water surface and shoreline. When he plunges into the water, his nose and ear slits are designed to close, keeping the water out. And to find his prey underwater, he has built-in goggles: nictitating membranes, clear membranes to cover his eyes. When the Alligator attacks his prey, and drags them underwater to eat, there is a special valve at the back of his throat that allows him to open his mouth and eat his food underwater without water flooding into his throat choking him.

Alligator 4

 

These are all amazing design features that God gave to the Alligator so that he can survive in the swamp.

While these creatures are certainly dangerous apex predators affected by the sin curse , it is important to remember that they still reflect the genius and handiwork of their Creator and they inspire a natural awe in us.

Let us praise our Lord for the wonders that He has created for us to enjoy, appreciate, and learn from!

Dinosaurs Amongst the Flowers – Creation Minute 1

CM Logo Final J

 

Dinosaurs amongst the Flowers

 

Did you know that the fossil record clearly shows that dinosaurs walked among flowering plants such as poppies, rhododendron and pachysandra?

 

Evolutionists claim that plants have evolved over the eons and that the first flowering plant did not come into existence until after the dinosaurs, but secular paleontologists have found that dinosaurs lived amongst many of the same plants and flowers that are still around today!

 

Dino and flowers

 

Plants in the fossil record show little evidence of evolution through time! Most of these plant and dinosaur fossils were created by the catastrophic worldwide flood of Noah’s day, not slowly over millions of years!

 

We do not find plants changing over time because God created all plants on the third day of the Creation week! There has been plant variation throughout the last few thousand years, but this is simply variation among the created kinds. There is no fossil evidence of one kind of plant changing into another.

 

Dinosaurs really did tiptoe through the tulips!

 

 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
And the evening and the morning were the third day. Genesis 1:12-13

And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:24, 39
