Thus, they say, our eyes couldn't have been especially designed, because an intelligent designer would've wired them correctly. But this claim doesn't make sense! After all, octopus retinas are wired in a supposedly correct way, but their sight is poor compared to ours. Ophthalmologist Dr Peter Gurney has shown there are good reasons our retinas are wired the way they are. In particular, it allows the photo-receptors to be in close contact with 2 special tissues behind the retina that are necessary for regenerating the photo-receptors and absorbing excess heat. But these tissues are both opaque. So if our retinas were wired the other way, you'd be looking at 2 opaque surfaces, which would mean you'd see nothing. & then the eagles have the same retina wiring as us & they're renowned for their "eagle eyes". Maybe the Creator God knew what He was doing all along after all. less

The answer is software. You may not realize to have software, but inside the nucleus of each of your cells, a program is written in the form of 3 billion DNA letters. Intelligent programmers write computer software, but what about living things? Evolutionists tell us that the information in the 1st living cell just appeared by itself, with no intelligent input required, but is that possible? The answer is a resounding NO. Even 1 of Australia's best-known scientists, Paul Davis, considered that "There's no known law of physics that's able to create information from nothing". And perhaps that's why, in a New Scientist article, he lamented "How did stupid atoms spontaneously write their own software? Nobody knows." less

The incidence of high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is only increased. To combat this problem, doctors prescribe several types of medication, which lower blood pressure by different mechanisms. It's long being thought that black people and white people respond differently to these different drugs, so doctors advise to consider a patient's race when choosing which medications to prescribe. But research recently published in the medical journal "Hypertension" has shown that this approach is flawed. Researchers found that variation between so-called races is much less than within each racial group. So the new recommendation is that race should NOT be a factor in choosing which medication to prescribe. It appears that differences between each racial group are not significant after all, which is what we would expect from the Bible history and teaching. less

The entire human race has a remarkably low level of genetic variety. Some biologists have remarked that if you sequence the DNA of 2 humans on opposite side of the globe, the DNA will show less variation than that of 2 chimpanzees on the same mountain in Africa. These discoveries have profound implications: since the human race has low genetic variety, this means that it must have originated fairly recently. Racial groups have not therefore evolved independently over long periods of time. These discoveries are consistent with the Bible version of history, whereby the human population originated from 2 parents only thousands of years ago, and that the people groups have originated since then. less

Well, we now know that it actually does but the baby survives by putting up a very specific defense. Researchers at the Medical College of Georgia discovered that mammalian embryos produce a special enzyme that suppresses the mother's immune reaction. A human embryo starts to produce this enzyme just before it attaches to the mother's uterus. This refutes the major arguments used to support abortion that the embryo is just a part of the mother's body to do it as she pleases. The research clearly shows that the human embryo is distinct from his mother from the beginning less

Eyewitnesses To The 2nd Coming
Q. Please could you spare a moment to tell me how you interpret Christ’s statement in Matthew 16:28? He says there were “those present who would not taste death until they saw the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” Some say it is evidence of Christ’s humanity – since He said that He didn’t know the time of His return. Others have said He was referring to the com ing of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. What is your interpretation?
A. Six days after Jesus said this, He took Peter, James and John to the top of a nearby mountain and was transfigured before them. Moses and Elijah were there and the voice of God spoke to them all (Matt. 17:1-8).
In 2 Peter 1:16-18 Peter recalled the event.
We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
When Peter said this he was obviously talking about the 2nd Coming. This means the Lord’s transfiguration was the fulfillment of Matt. 16:29. Now this doesn’t mean the 2nd Coming has already taken place as some Preterists would have us believe. It just means that during their lifetimes the three disciples were eyewitnesses to the fact that it will.
My Dear Brethren, I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you all with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you all, being rooted and grounded in love, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. May the Lord bless you all exceedingly abundantly more that you ask or imagine, according to His power that is within you all. To Him be glory in you my dear brethren forever and ever....Amen.
Wishing you all a Blessed Awesome Weekend!
Blessings, Love & Prayers,
(1Cor 3:11) No other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ... Let us build our lives on the solid foundation which is Jesus Christ and him only.
May the Lord your God be blessed, Who has chosen you, to place you upon His throne as king. Because of your God’s love for Israel , to establish it forever . II CHRONICLES 9:8

I'd like to share with you this little story from National Geographic, one of the favourite sources for those who want to disprove the Bible. In its 11/1999 issue, it announced the discovery of Archaeoraptor, the so-called missing link between dinosaurs &
1st of all, what is a dinosaur? The word itself comes from the combination of 2 Greek words: "deinos", which means fearsome, & "sauros", which means "lizard". So they were "fearsome lizards".

Now to the last part of it. People often fail to realize that the Ark was 140 m long! Nearly the size of the Titanic! If you already saw the movie with Leo DiCaprio, you know how big Titanic was. And the Ark was nearly the same size! Its capacity was 15 0
Now, on to the great wrenching question: where did this water come from, and where did it go?
1st of all, we should understand that because God did say that He finished His creation on day 6 (Ex. 20:11, the expression "the heavens and the earth"
Gen. 7:17-19: "For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. They ros
