Dennis Prager (Prager University) on Most Important Verse in the Bible -- Genesis 1:1



Genesis chapter 1 is a defense of theism.  It is the ultimate apologetic, or defense.  In a world full of pantheism and polytheism when it was written, it defends a dependable philosophy of God -- Theism.

Thousands...Not Billions: Radioisotope Dating & the Age of the Earth (Larry Vardiman)

Helium Leaks Show the Earth is Young - Dr. Russell Humphreys


See two articles:

  1. Evidence for a Young World, by D. Russell Humphreys, Ph.D.  (Short, non-technical)
  2. Helium Evidence for A Young: World Remains Crystal-Clear (Long, technical)

At the 2003 International Conference on Creationism, Russell Humphreys delivered a report that is sure to have evolutionists calling in their “spin doctors.” Dr. Humphreys, a physicist at the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), Dr. John Baumgardner, a geophysicist currently working at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, along with Dr. Steven Austin and Dr. Andrew Snelling, both geologists at ICR, are all members of a collective effort known as the Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth (RATE) group [see Vardiman, 1999]. The RATE project is a collaborative venture composed of professional scientists primarily from ICR and the Creation Research Society. In 2000, the group met and delineated a five-year plan of research to explain the apparent disparity between conventional and biblical dates. The basic question the RATE group wants to address with these research projects is: How did large amounts of radioactive products get in the rocks and minerals? Both old Earth and young Earth views find anomalously high levels of radioactive daughter material. Thus, every year the RATE group convenes to analyze data, progress, and future projects.


The report Dr. Humphreys delivered was just one of many updates delivered by the RATE group over the past couple of years. He and Dr. Baumgardner built on the work of Dr. Robert Gentry, investigating helium retention in zircons. While the technical aspects of the research can be quite overwhelming, the conclusion is rather straightforward and simple: When uranium decays to lead, one of the by-products is helium. If creationists are correct, and the Earth is young, this helium (with its extremely small, lightweight, and unreactive atoms) would be expected to still be trapped in rocks. An old-Earth scenario, however, would result in minimal helium being held in the rocks, since the tiny helium atoms would be expected to have already escaped. Also, one would expect that the more deeply collected samples would be “older” and thus, contain less helium.


Humphreys and Baumgardner set out to measure the amount of helium still inside zircons. (Zircons are crystals that contain uranium—some of which has decayed to lead, giving off helium—that are found deep within granite.) After obtaining samples from specified depths, they sent the zircon samples to independent laboratories to allow world-class experts to measure helium amounts and rates of escape. Carl Wieland summarized the project as follows:
When uranium decays to lead, a by-product of this process is the formation of helium, a very light, inert gas, which readily escapes from rock.
Certain crystals called zircons, obtained from drilling into very deep granites, contain uranium, which has partly decayed into lead.
By measuring the amount of uranium and “radiogenic lead” in these crystals, one can calculate that, if the decay rate has been constant, about 1.5 billion years must have passed. (This is consistent with the geologic “age” assigned to the granites in which these zircons are found.)
There is a significant amount of helium from that “1.5 billion years of decay” still inside the zircons. This is at first glance surprising for long-agers, because of the ease with which one would expect helium (with its tiny, light, unreactive atoms) to escape from the spaces within the crystal structure. There should surely be hardly any left, because with such a slow buildup, it should be seeping out continually and not accumulating.
Drawing any conclusions from the above depends, of course, on actually measuring the rate at which helium leaks out of zircons. This is what one of the RATE papers reports on. The samples were sent (without any hint that it was a creationist project) to a world-class expert to measure these rates. The consistent answer: the helium does indeed seep out quickly over a wide range of temperatures. In fact, the results show that because of all the helium still in the zircons, these crystals (and since this is Precambrian basement granite, by implication the whole Earth) could not be older than between 4,000 and 14,000 years. In other words, in only a few thousand years, 1.5 billion years’ worth (at today’s rates) of radioactive decay has taken place. Interestingly, the data have since been refined and updated to give a date of 5,680 (+/- 2000) years (Wieland, 2003).
The Earth-shaking (pardon the pun) news is that since “non-creationist” laboratories performed the helium analyses, evolutionists have some heavy explaining to do. The results document that there is too much helium in the zircons for them to be millions (let alone billions) of years old! Since evolutionists cannot question the data (measured in their own laboratories), and they cannot reinterpret the results to fit an old Earth scenario, the only avenue left for evolutionists is to attack the researchers, or argue that their collection methods were seriously flawed—neither of which will alter the truth. Not enough helium escaped the zircon crystals to support a 4.5 billion year old Earth.

Evolution - What do they Purposely Leave Out?



In this presentation, you'll see stunning photographs of the wonders in our Cosmos. You'll learn that the evidence supports the Biblical model, and not the evolutionary model. You'll hear the evolutionists admit, in their own words, that according to their models stars and other objects should not exist. Discover what you're not being told about the Big Bang and our created Universe!

Spike Psarris has a Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, and has done graduate work in Physics. For a number of years, he was an engineer in the U.S. military space program; he entered that position as an atheist and committed evolutionist, and came out of it as a young-earth creationist and Christian. In his presentations, he'll show astronomical evidences against evolution and for creation.

The Lost Book of Abraham DVD and the Deception of the Mormon Church



The Book of Abraham is a little known book located in The Pearl of Great Price written by the founder of the Mormon religion, Joseph Smith. Smith claimed that the original manuscript he translated back in the 1800s was originally written by the Abraham of the Bible. Could Joseph Smith be right? Could this book belong in the canon of Scripture as Mormons claim?

Watch this very well done documentary by IRR (the Institute for Religious Research, a Christian apologetics ministry), and learn the truth about this book. You'll see the compelling evidence that The Book of Abraham was another fraudulent attempt by Joseph Smith to deceive his followers.

Black Chamber of Commerce, President and CEO Harry Alford Makes Senator Boxer Look Silly





This is classic because the Democrats expect all minority persons to "fall in line" in regards to the Party line. If they do not, typically they are maligned and besmirched... one only need recall the Left's tolerance (quoting a poster at Politico, "mkat33"):

when the left attacked Clarence Thomas, why wasn't that about race? When the left attacked Alberto Gonzales, why wasn't that about race? When the left attacked Sarah Palin, why wasn't that about gender? You may think that those on the right are the haters, but I guarantee you'll never see a "Sonia Sotomayor is a C***" t-shirt. Sure, the Democrats have a bigger tent, but that's only to allow them to fit the hordes of intolerant stooges that blindly follow the left's politics of hate.
Enjoy... I did

William Lane Craig Gives Best Current Compilation of Theistic Arguments


William Lane Craig gives one of his best presentations on evidences for theism. It is directly aimed at the heart of atheistic arguments and destroys many of the straw-men placed by said atheists.

There is a short follow up by atheist professor Daniel Dennett that lasts about 10-minutes or so. Dr. Dennett really has no defense of his atheism in light of what just happened. He basically mentions that his non-knowledge will some day be filled in (atheism-of-the-gaps). Professor McGrath (theist) finishes up with about a 5-minute outro.

Who Goes There - An Investigation Into the Practice of Channeling



This is an old documentary dated to either the late 80's or early 90's. One of the main contributors, Joe Fisher (who killed himself much later), wrote a book on this contact with spirits, The Siren Call of Hungry Ghosts: A Riveting Investigation into Channeling and Spirit Guides. Joe Fisher was not a Christian nor is the book based in the Judeo-Christian understanding. But it is a good book for research for an apologist.
What is channeling? What are "spirit guides", "inner friends", and "multiple personalities?" Where do they come from? Is there any harm to the practitioner? Find out in this fascinating and startling examination of one of America's most dangerous spiritual trends.

Channeling: the phenomenon is widespread. There are thousands of channelers in North America alone, and millions of adherents from all walks of life. They come seeking the wisdom of the so called “spirit guides.” Who Goes There? Takes you into the world of these channeled entities and raises some pertinent questions. Are the “guides” really who they say they are? Are there any dangers in this modern form of medium ship? WHO GOES THERE? looks beneath the surface into issues where mystery abounds.
