We will be gone for a week or so which explains our rash of activity here

#1.Why Limit Science To Natural Causes? And Who Said It First?

Braterman thinks it is unwise and counterproductive for scientists to maintain too strong a devotion to MN as an a priori principal. “Our faith in the regularity of nature derives from our having lived and evolved in a world where it holds good,” he writes, “not from some special rule about the nature of science. It is confirmed, over huge reaches of space and time, by observation.”

And further, he argues, any fear that in the absence of such a principle the possibility of invoking supernatural explanations may discourage the search for natural ones is simply unfounded

Actually, no one is ‘invoking supernatural explanations’ we are telling people about God’s revelation of what he did in the beginning. It is science that is the interloper in the origins issue not those who believe in a biblical supernatural cause. secular scientists have it all wrong, they are not the authority nor the owner of our origins, they really have no say in what theory can be expounded on or proclaimed.

#2. Old Earth Ministries

Welcome to Old Earth Ministries (OEM – formerly Answers In Creation).   This website is run by Biblical Creationists who monitor young earth creation ministries, and provide answers to their scientific claims, and provide links to the latest old earth creationism articles. Many people have rejected Christianity because of young earth creationism.  A proper understanding of the Bible and science shows that you can be a Christian and believe in an old earth.We have thousands of articles on a wide variety of topics.
If they have rejected Christianity because they were told the truth then they have nothing to whine about and the YEC is not to blame for that rejection. We do not change the truth because someone rejects it.
However, when Adam and Eve sinned, spiritual death was introduced, not physical death.  It is clear from the fossil record that animal death has existed for a long time.  True, Adam’s sin did subject humanity to death, but it did not introduce physical death to the world.  This mistaken belief is due to a misinterpretation of the Bible.
First, the only ones misinterpreting the Bible are the OEC people. Second, the fossil record does not trump nor change what the Bible says. Death entered at Adam’s sin, animal death did not exist prior to that point. The OEC people are abusing the fossil record to support their own sinful desires.
Three men have died and others were incapacitated while grave robbing an ancient tomb in China. The three men died of suffocation in the airless gravesite. Two other men in the tomb called for help, but one of them fainted due to lack of air, and the other fled the scene. Both surviving men were later detained and charged with robbing graves.
What can be said? They took the risk and paid a steep price.
A house discovered in ancient Rome’s central district may prove that the city was considerably larger than previously believed. The rectangular residence, which is still largely intact, has been discovered on the Quirinal Hill, between the modern Via Veneto and the Termini train station, and may date back to the sixth century BC.
Maybe it was a lone farm-house overseeing a large tract of land. Who knows? it is anybody’s guess and archaeologists are known for creating scenarios that can’t be backed up. Or maybe it was only a suburb disconnected from Rome like modern suburbs are.
Ten Legendary Lost Cities that Have Emerged from the Past

The story of Atlantis is one of the most renowned and enduring tales of a lost city, said to have been swallowed up by the sea and lost forever. Yet, the story of Atlantis is not unique, as other cultures have similar legends of landmasses and cities that have disappeared under the waves, been lost beneath desert sands, or buried beneath centuries of vegetation. Most of these legendary cities have never been found. However, there are now numerous cases of ancient cities, once seen as little more than myths and legends, that have now emerged from the past, raising the question as to how many more lost cities remain buried and waiting to be uncovered.


A good source of information.
