What Happened To The Dinosaurs? | This podcast is for kids to learn about the dinosaurs. #podcast #creationscience #dinosaurs #homeschoolFor Kids! What Happened To The Dinosaurs? Episode 7

To understand a bit about what happened to the Dinosaurs, it is best to begin in Genesis. Understanding how man sinned shows us that the Garden of Eden a haven for Adam and Eve and all the animals became a world far from perfection.

Then along came Noah! He was a righteous man and he saved the animals at the time of The Flood. While some think the flood was only in specific areas of the world, this is not true! You can find more information about Flood Geology in the book Creation Geology a Study Guide to Fossils, Formations & The Flood. The Flood was worldwide, the podcast contains information about some of the ways we know this.

The Ark design was unique (Genesis 6:14-16) There was room for 2 of each animal, food and storage, Noah and his family. The ark design is one of the most stable of any boat. When God said He wanted Noah to take two of each kind, what does it mean? A “kind” is not a “species.” For example, a “dog kind,” includes dogs, wolves, coyotes, etc.

What Happened To The Dinosaurs?

Where are the dinosaurs? Dinosaurs were believed to be on the ark. Juvenile dinosaurs were onboard and the average size of the dinosaur was the size of a small chicken. So, for all those skeptics, yes – dinosaurs were on the ark!

When the rains stopped and the flood waters receded, 150 days later the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The mountains became visible in the tenth month.

Before the Flood, the earth was warmer. It is believed there was more carbon dioxide in the air that made the plants and animals grow bigger (and people lived longer). There are many plants and animals found in the fossil record that did not survive the flood.

What Happened to the Dinosaurs? 

After the flood, many plants and animals died and the dinosaurs and other large creatures could not live in the reduced atmosphere or without some of the plants that did not survive, so they became extinct. Many plants and animals were buried rapidly which caused fossils. Fossils are often found in groups. The rocks showed the catastrophic deposits with large scale erosion into the newly deepened oceans. There was also a post-flood Ice Age.

Geologic formations formed and the rapid burial showed that many fossils found were not commonly found together in nature. The Fossils were only preserved when they are rapidly buried.

Global Flood | As we talk about the Genesis Global Flood and its significance, it is important to, first of all, determine if it was a global or a local event. Did the Flood cover the whole earth or just Mesopotamia? | #podcast #creationpodcast The Global Flood Episode 17

Thanks to our sponsor, A Fanthom Presents Film – The Ark and The Darkness – Movie Trailer here: NoahsFlood

In theaters March 20-21! Noah’s Flood is preserved in ancient writings from every major culture around the world. Recent discoveries confirm what the Bible has said all along. Sevenfold Films and Genesis Apologetics present: The Ark and the Darkness.

The Four Great Global Events of Genesis The Flood

As we talk about the Genesis Global Flood and its significance, it is important to, first of all, determine if it was a global or a local event. Did the Flood cover the whole earth or just Mesopotamia?

Genesis indicates that the Flood was global, affecting all of the earth. If this was not the case, then the rainbow that the Lord gave as a sign of His promise would have been a promise given just to the people of Mesopotamia and would have had no significance for the rest of the world. Why does the world need to be reminded that the Lord would never flood Mesopotamia again? This would have been a huge waste of time and space to take four chapters of Genesis to tell a story that is irrelevant to future generations.

Global Flood:

We also need to decide if the story of the Flood is anything more than a myth. It is true that the Flood cannot be proven by science, but the same is true of the uniformitarian view of our earth. Uniformitarianism also can not prove that the earth is a product of processes over millions of years. To be classified as science, it must be able to be tested, observed, and repeated. This is not possible with uniformitarianism.

Scripture is not intended to be a scientific dissertation on geology, but it is a historical record that presents the global Flood as a real historical event. The real question to address is, can the Flood explain the geological landforms, rocks, and fossils that we see today? And the answer is, yes.

Global Flood:

There are two major stages as recorded in the Scripture concerning the Flood – the filling stage, or the inundation stage. This is found in Genesis 7:23-24. The second stage, the receding stage, is found in Gen 8:1-16. Although there is no scientific terminology in either of these passages, there are quite a few geological implications in these passages.

Here are the verses and activity/geological implications:

Gen.7:4 – Extinction

Gen. 7:11 – Tectonic upheaval

Gen. 7:11 – Torrential and violent rain, massive flooding

Gen. 7:17 – Massive amounts of rock and sediment torn up and moved

Gen. 7:18 – The waters and their strength increase, causing erosion and transportation of sediments

Gen. 7:19 – The Flood was deep, covering the entire earth

Gen. 7:21 – The Flood was devastating to life, which is what the fossil record shows

Gen. 7:22 – Dead things buried in rock layers all over the earth

Ge. 7:23 – All air-breathing, land-dwelling life outside of the ark perished

Gen. 7:24 – It took 150 days for the water to reach a maximum depth

Gen. 8:1 – Water draining off the earth carved great ravines, channels, and planation surfaces

Gen. 8:2 – Wet sediments torn up by the Flood begin to settle

Gen. 8:3 – Receding flood waters would have caused rapid and catastrophic cutting and planation

Ge. 8:5 – Continued planation and channelized erosion

Gen. 8:34 – Some sediments during this time would have hardened, others would have warped during the tectonic processes of the Flood

Biblical Creation Terminology

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Biblical CreationBiblical Creation Terminology

In order to have an intelligent discussion, you must understand the terms. Biblical Creation terminology is the focus of this podcast.

Thanks to Media Angels website featuring Creation Science Unit Studies for an unbelievable price~MediaAngelsMembership.com

And thank you to our sponsor, CTC Math.

Biblical Creation vs. Evolution:

A quick definition of Biblical Creation begins with the Creator God. A Creator God began the world with His Word. Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”

Evolution – by definition is a change over time, it is a two-step process.
1. The theory that life began spontaneously on its own
2. Darwin’s theory of simple life evolving into more complex

The terminology is confusing.
Terminology is everything. “He who defines the term wins.”

What is in a word?
Creation:
1. Creation science
2. Biblical Creation
3. Old Earth Creationist

Evolution:
1. Macro Evolution
2. Convergent Evolution
3. Darwinism
4. Neo-Darwinism
5. Old Earth
6. Theistic Evolution

God created the world with His Word. Genesis 1:1

Do you believe that God created? It is a matter of faith, evidence points to a Creator.

Intelligent Design:

An “Intelligent” Designer began the world
Science points to order not disorder
Evolution does not make sense in regard to life beginning by accident
The Designer could be:
1. God (for Christians)
2. Aliens
3. Unknown

Adaptation:

Scientists are conflicted and confused when discussing this aspect of evolution. The idea that traits are inherited by use and disuse is unscientific. The theory is that an organism adapts or alters according to certain genetic limits or due to circumstances.

Creationists do believe that adaptation does happen within certain generic limits. Adaptation happens within a kind. For example, there are different kinds of dogs, cats, finch, etc.

However, dogs remain dogs. New creatures or new features are never observed through adaptation.

Speciation:
1.Evolution of populations with species
2. Evolutionary biologists involved in the debate over what the term means
3. Based on the word “species”
4. Signifies a small step along evolution from one basic kind to another (false)
5. Variation should be used instead
6. Changes that occur with certain characteristics

Evolutionary scientists:

1. Have faith in evolution
2. Will not back down even with the lack of evidence
3. Bottom line: atheists, agnostics or Bible believers who see evolution evidence through evolutionary filters
4. Those who believe God created the world as stated in Genesis
a. take Genesis and the entire Bible in faith
b. Believe science confirms the Bible

A Preconceived Mindset | Let’s Talk About Creation

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

A Preconceived Mindset | The interpretation of scientific information is not as clear-cut as many would like to assume. An individual’s disposition or preconceived mindset can make interpreting scientific information, data, and facts challenging | #HomeForLearning.com #blog ##homeschooling #TipsHomeschooling #APreconceivedMindsetA Preconceived Mindset

The interpretation of scientific information is not as clear-cut as many would like to assume. An individual’s disposition or preconceived mindset can make interpreting scientific information, data, and facts challenging. As a believer, when I encounter scientific information, I immediately see it with the eyes of a Christian. In the same way, an evolutionist, looking at the same scientific information, will immediately see and interpret that data through different eyes.

Although biases are never favorable, awareness of your predisposition, whether creation or evolution, can be a starting point to more objectively analyze information. This, of course, does not mean that you must forsake or squash your beliefs. Instead, objectivity allows others to see the creditability of your research and better understand your interpretation of the material.

It should be noted that both creation and evolution are belief systems. Here’s the logic—no one was there at the beginning of life (until it happened!), and we have not been able to duplicate the origins of life through experimentation scientifically—therefore, scientifically speaking, neither viewpoint is “provable” instead, each must be accepted by faith—we were either created by a loving God, or through the evolutionary process of death.

Pointing Out A Preconceived Mindset

In the third novel, Keys to the Past: Unlocked, we had several opportunities to present characters oblivious to their biases. When the characters enter into discussions, the perceived mindset of an individual is quickly brought to light. Yet, often, the characters did not see their own prejudices. (This is often the case with many individuals today.)

When Dr. Foster (the scientist in the novel) interpreted the data he recovered, he looked at the information, assuming that evolution was the mechanism by which life started. By doing this, he was no longer genuinely looking at the information or data but instead simply attempting to make the data fit into a model he had already constructed and believed to be true.

Often, a creationist is looked down upon by evolutionists because they assume scientific information is only analyzed by a creationist as long as it meshes with the model and time periods explained in Genesis. This, however, is not the case. Any good scientist will analyze all the information and then come to a nonbiased conclusion; at least, we hope for this.

Creationism As Science?

Because the secular scientific community has scrutinized creationism, I feel that in many cases, creationists are more aware of their personal disposition and need for objectivity. On the other hand, many secular evolutionists have raised themselves above creationists—deeming themselves unbiased.

This is because many secular (as well as some Christian) scientists believe that evolution is a proven fact. The National Science Standards (which you can find online) state that teaching evolution is mandatory for all students. They specifically address the issue of the “problem” with creation. They point out that creation is a “religion,” yet evolution is a scientific fact.

This illustrates that there appears to be a trap some scientists and educators fall into: they are unaware of their own preconceived viewpoint (or choose to ignore it). Overcoming a biased opinion or interpretation of data can only fully happen when you admit you have one.

Do Creationists Have Preconceived Mindsets

Creationists wholeheartedly admit to believing in the first eleven chapters of Genesis—which lays out the Creation story. They realize their potential for approaching scientific data with a perceived mindset—thus, they can move past it onto the information. Most evolutionists, however, claim to be unbiased; this blindness makes them all the more vulnerable to the problem of incorrectly interpreting scientific information. By arguing they are not biased, they are, in fact, closing themselves off from overcoming—their evolutionist disposition.

Biases are an undeniable fact, for we are all human. Having said this, they should be considered when conducting research or interpreting data. Creationists have an excellent opportunity to share their faith and the truths about creation science with the entire scientific community. It is important to analyze the content of a scientific paper and the author of the work. One way to do this is to read a biography of the author or the research institution. Personally, I feel confident with the information I find on websites such as The Institute for Creation Research or Creation Studies Institute.

Being aware of personal biases is important to each of us. Understanding this issue will go a long way in preparing you and your children for the onslaught of evolutionary claims found in the general media. The good news is there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and that is the truth found in the Word of God!

creation mattersDoes Creation Matter?

Creation matters, yes. Why does the discussion on how God created the world matter? Did God really create the world in six days and rest on the seventh? Does anyone really care?

This podcast was an original work of the Creation Science Expo that I had the pleasure of hosting some years back, it is my pleasure to re-release it to you and share the importance of caring about our origins.

Many times I’ve discussed the purpose of having a creationist perspective, and people would say, “Why do you care?”

The reason I care is that I want my children to grow up with a Christian worldview and share that with their children, someday. In the writing of my Truth Seekers Mystery Series book, I had a “God-incident” that I share in this episode.

In a nutshell, I was rushed during the Christmas season and wanted nothing to do with rereading of the draft copy of one of the novels. You see, as a novelist, and co-novelist at the (along with my then, college-aged daughter, Christina), I was the one in charge of final proofreading and I kept finding mistakes. I was frustrated. I threw up a heavenward prayer, “God are you sure you have the right person doing this job?” And, I wasn’t talking about the job of editing, I was talking about the job of being the “hands and feet” of God – spreading the word about the fallacies of evolutionary claims. Which these novels demonstrate in a fun-easy to read and mystery adventure. More about the TruthSeekersMysterySeries.com here.

Heading to a store to do last-minute shopping, I happened upon a calling card placed in a nativity scene I was about to purchase. (The audio includes details about this, but here is the visual — a copy of the card:

Preparing Your Kids To Defend Creation Science

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Every day we’re bombarded with scientific data and facts. From climate change to quantum physics, we’re told to just trust the science and believe – no questions asked. But the reality is that interpretation of scientific information is far more nuanced than that and is colored by each person’s worldview and preconceived biases, and yes- even as a creation scientist.

According to a study conducted by the National Science Foundation, 82% of Americans have difficulty understanding the meaning of scientific information. This means that despite our best efforts, many of us are unconsciously misinterpreting scientific data – and even coming to incorrect conclusions.

In this article, you’ll learn why we often misunderstand science, how different personalities interpret scientific information differently, and how to work around our own biases to draw accurate conclusions from scientific data.

A Preconceived Mindset

By Christina Gerwitz Moss

The interpretation of scientific information is not as clear-cut as many would like to assume. An individual’s disposition or preconceived mindset can make it challenging to accurately interpret scientific information, data, and facts.

 As a believer in Creation Science, when I encounter scientific information, I immediately see it with the eyes of a Christian. In the same way, an evolutionist, looking at the same scientific information, will immediately see and interpret that data through different eyes.

Being Aware of Biases

 Although biases are never favorable, being aware of your predisposition, whether creation or evolution, can be a starting point to more objectively analyze information. This, of course, does not mean that you must forsake or squash your beliefs. Instead, objectivity allows others to see the creditability of your research and better understand your interpretation of the material. It should be noted that both creation and evolution are belief systems.

Logic

 Here’s the logic—no one was there at the beginning of life (until it happened!), and we have not been able to duplicate the origins of life through experimentation scientifically—therefore, scientifically speaking, neither viewpoint is “provable” instead each must be accepted by faith—we were either created by a loving God or through the evolutionary process of death

Making the Data Fit

In the third novel, Keys to the Past: Unlocked, we had several opportunities to present characters that were oblivious to their biases. When the characters enter into discussions, the perceived mindset of an individual was quickly brought to light. Yet, often the characters did not see their own prejudices. (This is often the case with many individuals today.)

This, however, is not the case. Any good scientist will analyze all of the information and then come to a nonbiased conclusion; at least, this is what we hope for. 

Scientific Scrutiny

Because creationism has been so scrutinized by the secular scientific community, I feel that in many cases, creationists are more aware of their personal disposition and need for objectivity.

Help Your Family Refute Evolution

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Most science textbooks that are not specifically labeled as Christian teach evolution as a scientific fact. As Christians, we know this is untrue. It is important to teach our children how to learn how to refute evolution by analyzing scientific and physical evidence that points back to a creation model. One way to do this is by choosing curriculum that supports what you believe and helps you to teach and explain why you believe what you believe!

Help Your Family Refute Evolution with the Creation Science Study Guide

Creation Science: A Study Guide to Creation from Media Angels will help you to teach your family how to refute evolution. This study guide will take your family through the Bible, starting in the book of Genesis to answer the question of how the world was created. It uses scriptures and factual information that is demonstrated by science that shows us the real Divine Designer. This guide teaches from a young earth, creationism view. It points out the errors of Darwin and the theory of evolution while always pointing back to God our creator. It covers many topics such as: The 7 days of Creation, Darwin’s theories, Flood geology, the age of the Earth, The Big Bang Theory, evidence of fossils and more false scientific concepts.

I really enjoy using unit studies in our homeschool, and this is a great way to  dig deep and teach creation science to your children in a fun and engaging way! This unit study should take 6-8 weeks to complete which is a good amount of time to really immerse your children in the subject.

This Creation Science Study Guide was created for a busy mom of many children. This teaching outline is created for multiple ages in grades K-12. The easy to follow lesson plans are broken down by grade levels: K-3, 4-8, and grades 9-12. There are more than 350 activities and experiments that your children can choose from.  All of the lesson plans include a teaching outline for each day of the week. There are suggestions and tips on how to incorporate daily Bible time with scriptures to back up what you are learning. Since this is unit study based, there are even ways to incorporate math, geography and history, language arts and even music into your studies! I really enjoy the blank planning pages that you can use to record notes, field trip ideas or any special videos, or podcasts that you want to listen to that week to go along with what you are learning.

This series has even made Cathy Duffy’s 100 and 102 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum!

To enrich your studies even further, you will really enjoy using the Hands-On Science Experiment Activity Pack. This packet saves you a lot of time as it has all the printables you need to create your very own science notebook. You can even copy them for use with multiple children. The printable packet includes: experiment pages, vocabulary pages, notebooking pages, crossword puzzles, hands-on activities, and science games! You can get this as an instant download in the Creation Bundle.
