University settles with Creationist Scientist Mark Armitage after being fired for discovering amazing dinosaur evidence that supports Biblical creation. This lead to a lawsuit where Mr Armitage alleged he was fired based on religion. Now the University have agreed to settle which can be seen as an admission that they expected to lose the case and that his inconvenient discovery was the main motivation for his dismissal. Not only did he discover soft, brown tissue in the horn of a Triceratops, he also discovered actual bone cells – evidence like this shatters the myth that dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago.
We are completely convinced that the Creation accounts in Genesis are totally reliable and that true unbiased scientific research points towards the Biblical creation. The creation account in Genesis clearly describes literal (24 hour) days and the only way to come to any other conclusion is by twisting and distorting the plain meaning of the text which hugely damages the integrity of the Bible. This is all the more dangerous when you consider that many fundamental doctrines are rooted in the first few chapters of Genesis. For example, the concept of sin (which is a crucial part of the gospel message) is the most obvious – if Adam was a mythical character, then there is no need for Jesus to literally die and rise from the dead to put things right. 1 Corinthians explains this at length:
But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive….So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. (1 Corinthians 15:20-22 and 42-45)
Biblical marriage is another foundational concept that has its roots in the creation account – the account below demonstrates how God intended marriage to be instituted. Later in Scripture, the relationship between a husband and wife is used as a picture of the relationship between Jesus and His Church – it is very unwise for the Christian to stray away from Biblical parameters with human relationships as this pollutes God’s plan for marriage and by extension, it demonstrates disregard for Jesus symbolic relationship with His Bride, the Church.
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Genesis 2:21-24)
If we reduce the creation account to fairy tales the gospel message falls apart immediately! The scientific establishment has systematically (and deliberately) attempted to dismantle the Biblical accounts of creation using the evolutionist propaganda that dominate education and media. Fortunately, there are some fantastic ministries that help to stand firm and use the abundant evidence for Biblical Creation and how it helps to maintain trust in Scripture. Four of these are listed below – between them, they have hundreds of articles and videos on many subjects which we hope can encourage you and give you confidence in the Bible.
