Question 9-Puritan Catechism

Spurgeon 19. Q. What is the work of creation?

A. The work of creation is God’s making all things (Genesis 1:1) of nothing, by the Word of his power, (Hebrews 11:3) in six normal consecutive days, (Ezekiel 20:11) and all very good. (Genesis 1:31)

John Piper—On Atheism—It’s Laughable and Blasphemous

Some Atheists today will try to convince us that this universe and everything in it came to be through the process of evolution and natural selection. Other Atheists will not even give a reason why we are here or how we got here. This is because they have no answer. Their world view provides no answer and they don’t want to point to evolution because they themselves think the belief of the evolutionist is a laughable matter.

Today I point you to this video by John Piper on the laughable and blasphemous views of Atheists and Atheistic Scientist.

A few Amino Acids will not make a living cell

For all those who believe that man developed from primordial soup, here is a quick video to disprove otherwise. Complex design is evidence of a Designer. We call that Designer, God.
