Why a nuclear physicist turned to God.

Read this, it's really powerful stuff. For those of you who really hate Creationism you can stop reading after the words "11 chapters of Genesis".

I think some of you might find this interesting though, especially the part about the lava rocks. Basically, radiometric dating gave an age of several MILLION years to rock known to be formed in 1986 - and no, it's not "known" through another dating method, but through first-hand experience.

“I have become increasingly amazed at how comprehensive and yet internally consistent the Bible and Christianity are."

Stopped treating this article seriously right there. The Bible is hardly comprehensive, and is internally inconsistent.

But there is a beautiful lesson to be learned from this: Not even a PhD will guarantee that you're right, even within your field.

Kenneth T. Miller, Ph.D., a Christian and evolutionist, is professor of biology in the Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry at Brown University, in Providence, RI.

Evolution is both a fact and good science. So-called “alternatives” to evolution are not scientific and lack evidence.

From the website:

Without the first 11 chapters of Genesis being taken as historical narrative and plainly understood as written, the rest of the Bible and, in particular, the New Testament message of salvation, does not compute.

I completely agree.

As for the tale of the St. Helen's rocks, the lab that tested the rocks told the guy that sent them in beforehand that their testing methods were only applicable to material at least 2 million years old, yet he insisted they test it anyway. What the result indicated was the age of the bits of material in the rocks that was millions of years old, as the method was not applicable to the newer material that comprised the majority of the rocks. So it's not proof, or even evidence, that the method doesn't work, just proof that you'll get odd results if you misuse the method.

"That sure looks like design..."

"Evolutionists would have us believe...happened by accident"

No reason to read further. This is the exact same BS all over again.

"Evolutionists would have us believe...happened by accident"

Isn't it annoying how this gets repeated over and over again? It's as if atheists said "Christians say that Jesus lives in Seattle, but I went to Seattle and there's no record of him being there."

Funny how they don't mention what kind of dating method was actually used, probably because it isn't a method that works on igneous rocks.

Kenneth Miller is a theistic evolutionist trying to reconcile modern science with the Bible - and failing, badly. Most people recognize that this viewpoint is more nonsensical than either Creation or Evolution, and I'm disturbed that Brown has such a man teaching Biology. I have buddies at Brown. :/

Statements

judged on merit

not on who said them

In judging the merit of a belief, you don't take the person into account?
