Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Bruce Malone for, “Fingerprints of Our Creator.” The amazing complexity of life is most clearly seen as we examine the complexity of DNA and proteins. DNA is the most compact information carrier in the universe and useful biological proteins do not exist outside of a living cell. Every experiment ever done confirms this fact of science – chemicals never come alive by themselves and the more we learn about how a living cell operates, the less excuse we have for rejecting our Creator.
Join Origins host, Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Georgia Purdom for, “Mutations: Evolution’s Disappointment.” A major mechanism for Darwinian evolution is mutation. Random chance mutations are necessary to generate the raw material necessary for molecules-to-man evolution. These mutations must be beneficial and lead to the formation of new traits so that one kind of organism over time can evolve into a completely different kind of organism. However, mutations have never been observed to do this!
Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Paul Nelson for, “The Genius of Birds.” Place a bird feeder in your backyard, and before long cardinals, sparrows, woodpeckers, and maybe even hummingbirds will come zipping by. We can take these amazing creatures for granted, but each one represents a stunning solution to aeronautical engineering problems. Does the undirected evolutionary process of natural selection truly explain bird origins – or does their existence point to an intelligent designer?
Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Gary Bates for, “Creation not Confusion.” Are the days in the Genesis account, millions of years? This question is raised very often by people seeking answers regarding the Bible. Many Christians reject the straightforward, historical reading of the Genesis creation account simply because they believe it cannot be verified by science. Our guest on this program says that ultimately, most of the answers for this question stems from the very first book!
Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. John Baumgardner for, “Deep Time- Deep Deception part 2.” A primary pillar that supports deep time in the scientific community is radioisotope dating. Our guest shows that radioisotope methods used to date the rocks are flawed. He’ll expose the single assumption that causes these methods to falsely yield ages of millions and billions of years, when in fact the actual ages are on the order of only thousands of years. Christians need no longer be intimidated by radioisotope dating.
Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. John Baumgardner for, “Deep Time- Deep Deception part 1.” Deep time, taught as fact in essentially all the educational institutions of our land and reinforced by the media, represents a direct frontal attack on the truthfulness of Scripture. On today’s program we’ll show that Carbon 14 is now the friend of those who accept the Genesis account as historical. There is overwhelming evidence that fossil material throughout earth’s fossil record, without exception, contains Carbon 14 at levels that limit the fossil age to only thousands of years not billions.
Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Paul Nelson for, “Orphan Genes Puzzle.” Imagine having to assemble a dictionary of the English language – but every time you open a new book you find words that you’ve never seen before. Many of the words are unique, found only in that book, and nowhere else. Likewise in genetics, hundreds of thousands of new genes are being discovered by DNA sequencing, and their beginnings are a major puzzle.
Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Jay Seegert for, “The Bible’s Inspiration: Scientific Evidence” As Christians, we believe the Bible is more than just a book… it is the divinely inspired, error-free Word of God. But how do we know that? Are we just taking that on blind faith? On the contrary, there’s actually a great body of evidence, Jay will reveal to us on this program known as “scientific foreknowledge”.
Join Origins host, Ray Heiple as he welcomes Gary Bates for, “Who Made God?” The question “If God created the universe, then who created God?” is often used to challenge the truth of the Genesis account of Creation. Many people claim that invoking a supernatural act by a Creator, who is beyond our time and space, is unscientific. In reality, the universe displays all the hallmarks of complex and purposeful design. Indeed the ‘heavens declare the Glory of God’ and reveal His purpose for mankind.
