All we need is the missing link

Early one morning, out of the blue, before any other students arrived, I had a student, (we will pretend his name was Tim) ask me, “Mr. Glazier, do you believe in God, or are you more of an agnostic?” I looked up from a paper I was grading and trying to make sense of and replied, “Oh, I definitely believe in God, and have quite a few reasons for my belief.” He announced, “Not me, I am leaning toward being an agnostic, for two reasons.” “What are those?” I asked. Tim replied, “Well you have the Big Bang that explains where it all started, and genetic mutation. All we need to do is find the...

A Story – An Apologetic Thanksgiving

Matt was a young man was on his way home from college during the Thanksgiving break. He had been driving on a cold clear Fall day, his favorite weather of the year, when he decided to fill up on gas. He spotted an out of the way station that did not look too run down, as some of them do. As he pulled in, he noticed someone else who was heading in the opposite direction pull in off the highway . The two of them parked on opposite sides of the same island, facing opposite directions. Matt got out, opened his wallet, swiped his card, and began to pump the gas. The concrete pad was swirling with...

I can’t wait for Evolution

You can see that flight simulators have evolved nicely in the past 20 years. So much so that you can’t tell the difference between a real photo of the instrument panel, and one in a game. Games evolve. Cars evolve. Even animals evolve in what we see called micro-evolution, or small changes over time. Darwin’s famous finches are an example of small changes over time. But there is another example of evolution called macro-evolution that is another matter entirely. Evolution. For some parents, this is the dreadful word that comes with junior high or high school, and initiates your...

Science Camp and Hunter Killer Snails

This past week I took my 6th, 7th and 8th graders to the Alliance Redwood Outdoor Education Camp. It was a new experience for most of my students; many had never been away from home, their parents, or attended any kind of science camp. Several had never spent any time on the beach, so on the last day we went to Bodega Bay  and enjoyed some tide pooling with our naturalist. The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and when we left, I had a couple of them tell me their favorite part was the tide pooling and spending time exploring and playing along the beach. We walked a mile or two and...

Evolution vs Creation

Evolution vs Creation

My reasons for having doubts about Darwinian Evolution that I outline below are scientific, not theological. So if you accept Darwinian Evolution as fact, consider some of the empirical evidence I mention, because without evidence of macroevolution and proving how abiogenesis occurred, then evolution has nothing to stand on. Kenneth Samples carefully researched tough questions for Christians in his book, Without a Doubt. In the final chapter he wrote, “Christianity claims to have answers to life’s ultimate questions. When people ask honest questions about the truth of the faith, those...
