Light Has to Be Fastest

Today, I had to make a left turn from a two-way street. There was a car coming towards me, so I quickly analyzed how fast he was goingl, how quickly he was going to reach me, and whether or not I had the time to turn before he reached me. The conclusion I came up with was, “No.”
So I waited.

As I was waiting for him to pass me, I looked at his headlights. It was overcast and sprinkly but not dark, so I didn’t lose my night vision or anything.

During this period of time, I had a very odd thought. “I wonder if the time that the light takes in reaching me affects my perception of where he is?”

Almost immediately, I realized how foolish of a question that was. Light is the fastest, well, thing! in all of creation!

Then, I realized that God had to make light travel seemingly-instantly because otherwise all of our actions would be disastrously delayed. Can you imagine driving when you had a 5 second delay between when someone did something and when you reacted? Even giving people high-fives would be a feat of the highest difficulty!

If light traveled even only at the speed of sound, the world as we know it wouldn’t work at all.

However, would we even notice, if this was how it had always been?

Food for thought, eh? 🙂

A Thang With Wangs

Flying insects use all sorts of creative methods to get from from point A to point B. About 54.5 million to 37 million years ago, at least one species of beetle was using wings that looked like helicopter propellers to get around, Science News reports.

If I found an old helicopter, everyone would know that it was made by humans because it is too complex to have been created by a bolt of lightning striking a tree that was next to some scrap metal or something, right?  OK, then how are evolutionist scientists going to explain how THIS came about? Helicopter wings on an insect? Wings in and of themselves are an amazing “invention” —  one we’ve barely been able to replicate — and yet most people believe (we don’t have proof) that they evolved by chance and luck and chemicals. How’d the chemicals get there? Chance and luck and matter mixing and reacting, right? How’d the matter get here? A big explosion. What exploded? Everything. How? Well… we’re working on that one.

Creationist scientists know that since God is unchanging, his laws won’t change either. (Gravity, Laws of Thermodynamics, Laws of Motion, etc.) Because of this knowledge, we can use the scientific method to examine and try to begin to understand nature around us. We can even predict things! How amazing is that? 😀  We know exactly how creation came into being.  God told it to. 🙂  Everything was created within a week, even these helicopter beetles.  The intricate design of God’s creation is something that we can try to replicate, but he gave us the materials in the first place, so we really can’t take credit for any of it.  But, that’s OK!  We are here to bring him glory, and that’s all that the founding fathers of science, like Isaac Newton, wanted to do.  Should our mindset be any different?

P.S. Dear Evolutionists, you do know that the word “universe” comes from “uni-” (single) and “-verse” (spoken sentence).  The thing you say came about by chance is actually called a “single spoken sentence.”

Bill Nye’s Ark Encounter

Despite Bill Nye’s hostility to the Gospel and those who are spreading it, I praise God for the opportunity He gave to AiG to share the Good News with him, and for the world to see how Christians should treat those that oppose them.

The largest timber-framed structure in the world just received an unlikely visitor as Bill Nye “the Science Guy” made an unscheduled visit to the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky on Friday. Visitors were treated to a two-hour impromptu debate as Ken Ham graciously guided Nye on a personal tour through all three decks.

The Ark Encounter, which opened to the public on July 7, 2016, is an amazing representation of the historical Noah’s Ark- what it may have looked like, how it could have been built, and how feasible it would have been for Noah and his family to care for all the different kinds of animals that would have boarded during the year-long global flood.

Several weeks ago Ken Ham publicly invited Bill Nye on a personal tour, and Nye accepted. The fact that he accepted is both interesting and encouraging. You could say that Bill Nye is Ken…
