Biblical Exegesis

– The scriptures tell us that in the beginning, God created the heaven and earth in six days.

Creation: The Foundation of our Faith

Fact and Theory

– Today, many people reference the Big Bang theory as fact. Many just accept it as fact because of their peer’s belief in it.

Earth’s Geo-Magnetic Field

Fly Me To The Moon

Is Astrology in the Bible?

Stellar Parallax: The Distance to Stars

What is man?

– Most of us have been taught that we as humans are nothing more than a result of evolution. That millions of years ago, you and I were no more than tiny organisms swimming in a pond. There are those who want us to believe that in between then and now, we were hanging by … Read More

Our Special Earth: The Circum-stellar Habitable Zone

– Every star we see is a burning mass of plasma, similar to the sun. Even so, our sun is not just any old star.  95 percent of all stars are less massive and smaller stars are found in abundance – That is a very important consideration. If the Sun was smaller, then the habitable … Read More

The Rives Theory of Relativity

Our Special Earth: TOO MANY FACTORS

– While many scientists today claim that the earth was formed from cosmic dust billions of years ago, a close look at our planet reveals that it was carefully designed.

Our Special Earth: The Galactic Habitable Zone

– When we look at the universe in all its vastness, it is easy to think of the Earth as small, and insignificant.

The Big Bang Theory?

– The Genesis account of creation states that God formed the heaven and the earth in 6 days. He rested on the 7th day, and made it holy.
