Are You Skeptical of Global Warming and Evolution?

| April 5, 2010

Post Author: Bill Pratt A recent NY Times article linked people who are skeptical about evolution with people who are skeptical about global warming.  The author noted that there seems to be a correlation, that if you doubt one, then you likely doubt the other. This really has me thinking about why that is, as […]

What Do God and Science Have to Do with Each Other?

| November 30, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt Ever since I became an evangelical believer in Christ, about 12 years ago, I have noticed that there is uneasiness among my evangelical brothers and sisters with certain fields of science.  This uneasiness, I quickly learned, has much to do with the age of the universe and the origins of mankind.  […]

Why Do Scientists Believe the Universe is Almost 14 Billion Years Old? Part 2

| November 1, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt Continuing from the first post on this topic, we will look at two more methods that physicists and astronomers use to determine the age of the universe.  Again, this information has been gathered from Hugh Ross’ A Matter of Days. The third method physicists use to calculate the age of the […]

Why Do Scientists Believe the Universe is Almost 14 Billion Years Old? Part 1

| October 29, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt Some in the evangelical community dismiss the science that shows the universe is old (almost 14 billion years), and I think partly because they never considered the reasons why scientists make this claim. I am not a physicist or an astronomer, but I am an electrical engineer, so I had to […]

| July 27, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt I consider the age of the earth to be a secondary issue among Christians (not something to divide over), but I am curious about what the readers of this blog think about it.  If you have not answered the poll question on the home page of Tough Questions Answered, please drop […]

Was There Death Before Adam?

| June 4, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt  One of the most popular arguments from young earth creationists (YEC’s) that the “days” of Genesis must be 24-hour days is that if the “days” represent long periods of time (millions or billions of years), then there must have been animal death before the Fall of Adam and Eve.  According to […]

Are Scientists Persuaded by Evidence for a Young Earth?

| March 26, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt  Young earth creation organizations have written many books and published numerous articles over the years presenting scientific evidence to prove that the earth is young (6,000 – 10,000 years old).  Several years ago, when I read these books and articles, I found many of them to be convincing. But, I wanted to […]

Does a 4.5 Billion Year Old Earth Prove Evolution is True?

| March 22, 2009

Post Author: Bill Pratt No, even though I often hear Christians talk as if it does.  Many believe that if you interpret the “days” in Genesis to be long periods of time and you accept the current scientific consensus that the earth is about 4.5 billion years old, then you are “siding” with evolution. The […]
