Design in DNA

Join Origins host, Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Georgia Purdom for, “Design in DNA.”  Genetics is astonishing evidence of a Designer, who created a marvelously complex, efficient “information system” for encoding life. The complexity of DNA is problematic for molecules-to-man evolution since the necessary changes are so implausible.   The only reasonable explanation for all the information in DNA is that a Designer put the information in the original DNA sequences.

Creative Creatures, part 1

Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Bruce Malone for, “Creative Creatures part 1.”  Nature is full of creatures which are designed with amazing features needed to both survive and thrive in their environment.  These design features could never develop in a step at a time manner over long time periods because they are composed of multiple parts which all need to be present at once or nothing works.  This concept, known as irreducible complexity, is an extremely powerful evidence supporting creation.

The Genetics of Race

Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Robert Carter for, “The Genetics of Race.”  The Bible claims all people are descendants of Adam and Eve. But where did all the human races come from if we only started with two people?  Modern genetics tells us that are we all very similar and that there is not much diversity within humans.   Also, that the time required for what we see in people across the world fits within the biblical timeframe of history.

Races in the Bible

Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Robert Carter for, “Races in the Bible.”  There certainly are a lot of different looking people in the world today. Can we explain this using the Bible? The biblical account of Noah’s Flood and the Tower of Babel reveal how.  Once people spread out into many small clans, everything was set for specific groups to begin developing their own unique features. In the end, there is no such thing as ‘race’ in science or in the Bible. All people are equal in God’s eyes and all of us need a Savior.

Creation to Christ part 2

Join Origins host, Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Jay Seegert for, “Creation to Christ part 2.”   The Old Testament, far from being a collection of disconnected, difficult to understand stories, is actually real history and is foundational to the Christian faith.  On the second program of this series we’re going to continue looking at the “big picture” of Old Testament history and creating a timeline… setting the stage for the New Testament and the Gospel message.  This information is essential for every Christian.

Climbing Mount Improbable

Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Kevin Anderson for, “Climbing Mount Improbable.”  As a scientific “theory,” evolution claims to explain the origin of all biological traits, such as flying, swimming, and intelligence. A closer look reveals that evolution lacks any genetic mechanism to account for the origin of these traits. Instead, the biblical creation model fits smoothly within much of what is currently known about inheritance and genetics.

Why does God allow Evil?

Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Gary Bates for, “Why does God allow Evil?”  Our world has so much death and suffering, and is a chief reason why many people reject the God of the Bible.  In fact, it is the most asked question about Christianity.  Sadly, many others have left their Christian faith because they have been taught that death and struggle is an essential part of ‘life’.  When we look at the world through the lens of Scripture, we find that indeed God has done something about it.

Genomics vs. Darwin

Join Origins host Ray Heiple as he welcomes, Dr. Kevin Anderson for, “Genomics vs. Darwin.”  The basic teachings of contemporary evolution were developed by Charles Darwin and others long before anything was understood about the nature and activity of the human genome. As our understanding of genetics increases, the validity of evolution diminishes.  Recent discoveries within the human genome strongly contradict several popular evolutionary claims and strongly support a creation model.
