Human Population Problem | David Rives

Why should you believe in creation, and not evolution? I mean, scientifically speaking. Haven’t we proven that evolution is a fact?

What is a Quark? | David Rives

To discover what a quark is, you’ve got to think small. Really, really small. So everything in the universe is made up of atoms.

We’re … Read More

Don’t Self-Feed The Ducks | David Rives

? The atheist Richard Dawkins once proposed a very interesting idea. He said that he believed that ducks and hawks evolved quickly through a self-feeding mechanism of necessity.

What is a Black Hole? | David Rives

How do you detect something out in space that’s invisible? Well, you observe how the objects near it behave. This gives you clues about the nature of the invisible body.

What is Antimatter? | David Rives

One of the greatest mysteries in secular physics is why there isn’t much antimatter to be found anywhere in our universe. What is antimatter?

Basically, antimatter is … Read More

Your Microbiome and You | David RIves

Your Microbiome and You | David Rives

God designed His creation to work together. Just think about how many systems in nature involve multiple parts or a variety of organisms functioning together; photosynthesis requires the sun and the plant; the water cycle needs the sun, water vapor, and liquid water; decomposition involves plants or dead animals, scavengers, fungi, and microbes. Each part … Read More

The Incredible Design of the Human Foot | David Rives

Did you know you were designed to run around barefoot? Genesis tells us that originally Adam and Eve were created naked. It wasn’t until after sin that clothes—and eventually shoes—came into being.

Could All Of The Animals Fit On Noah’s Ark? | David Rives

Many skeptics of the Bible, and even fellow Christians, have wondered how Noah could’ve fit all the millions of modern animal species on the Ark. He would have needed a fleet of cargo ships! But Noah didn’t take all the species on the Ark! Noah was only commanded to take every kind of land-dwelling, air-breathing … Read More

The Marvel of Taste | David Rives

The richness and variety of foods, flavors, and combinations of those flavors is perhaps one of our Creator’s greatest gifts to us.

The Origin of Languages | David Rives

After Noah and his family got off the Ark God gave them a simple command, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.” But just two chapters later we read the response of Noah’s descendants, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a … Read More

Geological Diversity – Lots of Rocks | David Rives

I was studying some geological formations not long ago, and started wondering why we have so many different types of rocks and soils.

Gravity - A Force of Nature

Gravity: A Force of Nature | David Rives

We’ve all heard the story: Isaac Newton was sitting under an apple tree, saw an apple fall to the ground, and, viola, discovered gravity.
