Genesis 7:21-23 “And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.”
‘Previous writers and presenters of Creation Moments have often talked about fossils. But it is often useful to go over familiar ground again, especially if it is of foundational importance. Evolutionists tell us that fossils are evidence of evolutionary change. Nothing could be further from the truth. As creationists, we find that fossils make much more sense with a biblical explanation.
Fossils are dead. Since there was no death in the world until Adam’s sin, fossils cannot predate that sin. So, when humans were created, there were no fossils. Fossils are a worldwide event, and most of them appear to be of creatures that died rapidly and catastrophically under water, being covered with water-borne sediment. Such a formation is best understood as happening because of the worldwide Flood.
Some of the larger fossils – such as dinosaurs – are found buried in contortions, which looks like the last throes of death; this is consistent with sudden death caused by the Flood. Most such fossils are also found in assemblages, or bone jumbles. We tend to forget these last two facts when we see careful reconstructions of standing dinosaurs in museums. Many fossils closely resemble modern, surviving creatures, so that the fossil record illustrates not change, but stasis or – in the case of those creatures we do not find today – extinction.
Far from being a problem for creationists, fossils are our allies, and we can be confident that a biblical explanation for their formation is the most effective.’https://creationmoments.com/sermons/fossils-and-the-flood/?mc_cid=2e116164ee&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
This whole China virus thing is a socialist government’s dream! Here in Australia the states close their borders and lockdown the population over ONE case of China virus infection! Why? Kill the economy and it is easier to take over businesses. Big Brother is at work!
‘David Martin explains that nothing was novel with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. 73 patents had already been filed on everything patentable back to 2008. This shows that it was an illusion to get everyone in the world to take an injection of a bio-weapon. COVID-19 is a plandemic on the world based on a man-made synthetic mRNA fragment to make a pathogenic spike protein.

When a “Christian” school needs to hire someone for “diversity and inclusion” perhaps there’s a BIGGER problem!
‘A former NFL player who served as a diversity officer at Liberty University has sued the Christian school for $8 million, claiming his firing violated the Civil Rights Act and the Virginia Human Rights Act.
In a complaint filed Friday in federal court for the Western District of Virginia, Kelvin Edwards, a former executive vice president of management efficiencies and diversity, alleges that he was fired because Liberty’s acting president Jerry Prevo does not value diversity.
Edward was hired in the summer of 2020, according to the complaint, to take a leadership role in the Office of Equity and Inclusion, which seeks to keep the school “free from unbiblical and unlawful discrimination.”
The job offer included a $275,000 salary, a $1,500 a month car allowance, scholarships for Edwards and his family, and a new home, according to the complaint. To take the job, Edwards states that his wife left a teaching job and he left a job at a car dealership in Texas, where the family formerly lived.
The complaint alleges that the school committed to Edwards for 10 years during the recruiting process.
A former Liberty University football star who went on to play in for the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints, Edwards cited his close ties to the Falwell family in a press release announcing his return to the school.
The hiring of Edwards and football coach Turner Gill at Liberty was touted as part of the school’s “ongoing efforts in diversity,” according to the press release, dated August 4, 2020.
“I warmly refer to Liberty’s founder, the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr., as my ‘father’ not only because of the intimate relationship and mentorship between us, but also because current President Jerry Falwell and I formed a fast and easy brotherhood as college dorm mates,” Edwards said. “My wife, Tiawna, and I are excited to continue our relationship with Liberty University and to uphold the charge of building Champions for Christ.”
Jerry Falwell Jr. resigned as president of Liberty three weeks after Edwards was hired.
Not long afterward, the complaint alleges, Liberty’s acting president, Jerry Prevo, told Edwards there was “confusion” about his role.
“It became clear that Prevo did not believe in diversity efforts based at Liberty,” the complaint alleges. “In fact, during that same time frame, Mr. Edwards heard Prevo comment there were ‘too many people’ in diversity and inclusion.”
The complaint also claims that only two of 28 executives and senior leaders at Liberty are African American.
In a July 5 statement to a local television station, the school said that “Liberty University rejects the claims of Kelvin Edwards and will prove them false through the legal process.” The statement also said that Prevo had determined that hiring Edwards was “among his predecessor’s mistakes” but claimed the school had tried to find him another job with the institution.
The school said that it is committed to diversity and that Prevo has increased the budget for diversity efforts. “The University and its president are fully committed to racial and ethnic inclusion and diversity throughout Liberty, including on its faculty, in its student body and staff, and on its executive team,” the statement read.
According to the complaint, Edwards was terminated from his role in October 2020.’https://julieroys.com/liberty-university-lawsuit-nfl-kelvin-edwards/?mc_cid=575aed3b8b&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
The following is an email from Search for the Truth.
‘In order for our eyes to see, many chemical and electrical reactions must take place in the proper sequence. Even more importantly, these reactions must happen almost instantaneously for us to see what is happening, while it is still happening.
Researchers have recently discovered just how quickly light causes the first chemical change within our eye. In order for our brain to see an image, a chemical in our eye which is sensitive to light must respond as soon as a photon of light strikes it. This type of chemical change is called a photochemical reaction. Photochemical reactions are the basis of how photographic paper works, but the reactions that result in a printed picture are extremely slow compared to the photochemical reactions in our eye. The fastest photographic film requires the camera lens to remain open for about 1/10,000 of a second. Biologists have found that the eye’s photo-chemistry is so fast that the first reaction in the sequence takes place in approximately 1/5,000,000,000 (one-five billionth) of a second. This is 500,000 times faster than our best film capabilities.
Our attempts to duplicate the processes in our eyes fall short of God’s original design by such an extreme amount that Darwin himself admitted that the human eye seemed to defy his theory of evolution.‘ http://www.searchforthetruth.net/
‘Oh dear. Do lithium batteries pose a fire hazard? Yes they do. And suddenly it seems to be mainstream. The story we discussed in April became the focus of a major NBC item on June 20, including the suburban Houston fire chief whose department used a month’s worth of water putting it out comparing such fires to “a trick birthday candle.” And the Guardian just wrote an exposé on the environmental cost of lithium mining. Which of course has all been said before. But what’s actually encouraging is who’s saying it now: People who believe in man-made global warming, and alternative energy, are finally starting to engage in a balanced discussion of pros and cons. Mind you, in the era of the Internet it’s pretty hard to hush up the tendency of lithium batteries to cause horrendous fires. But if you’re waiting for our scathing putdown, well, not in this item. Proper attention to such things can only advance the discussion.
OK, one small putdown. NBC seems to regard the whole thing as a hiccup, to be overcome by one of progressives’ favourite techniques, training. “As the popularity of electric vehicles grows, firefighters nationwide are realizing that they are not fully equipped to deal with them. So they have been banding together, largely informally, to share information… But training to put out these fires can’t come fast enough as more electric vehicles arrive on U.S. roads every day. According to IHS Insight, an industry analysis firm, the number of registered electric vehicles reached a record market share in the United States of 1.8 percent and is forecast to double to 3.5 percent by the end of this year. But IHS notes that 1 in 10 cars are expected to be electric by 2025.”
Frankly we’ll believe that one when we see it. Partly because for all the chirpy enthusiasm about how EVs are on the verge of a technological and economic breakthrough, or several of them, again, batteries are as suspicious as an energy source as they are as a fire source. And a source of materials hard to dispose of. But again, the important point is that discussion of these issues is no longer taboo. Indeed the New York Times just dipped a toe into these calm, sensible waters with an item on how there isn’t enough lithium to meet President Biden’s EV goals and, what’s more, “production of raw materials like lithium, cobalt and nickel that are essential to these technologies are often ruinous to land, water, wildlife and people”. Now the Times also opines that “That environmental toll has often been overlooked in part because there is a race underway among the United States, China, Europe and other major powers.” But we think it would also be fair to say that it has been overlooked in part because climate alarmists, including those at the Times, have not wanted people to think there’s a downside to ditching fossil fuels.
Now that we’re rushing toward Net Zero, or failing to, it seems minds are being concentrated. Including over the fact that solar power has similar problems. Those lovely hideous solar panels do not last forever nor do they go into the compost. Far from it. Though based on their disappointing performance some people might wish they did. And if you’re wondering what is to be done, well, the same Guardian is now willing to start prying the door to nuclear power back open.
Withering putdown? No. Sorry. These developments are just good.’ https://climatediscussionnexus.com/2021/06/30/battery-catches-fire-film-at-11/
‘For college-aged students, the potential for adverse reactions to the COVID vaccination appear to outweigh the risks of the virus itself for that age group, said Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, a professor of psychiatry and director of the Medical Ethics Program at the University of California, Irvine.
Asked by The College Fix whether potential side effects of the COVID-19 vaccination outweigh risks of possibly contracting the virus for college-aged students, he said “the answer is likely yes.”
“[A]t the very least, based on current evidence, it’s entirely plausible to assume the answer is yes: that risks of Covid vaccination outweigh potential benefits of the vaccine for college age students,” Kheriaty said via email on Wednesday.
“We don’t know with certainty what percentage of college-age students have side-effects, or serious adverse effects, from the vaccine because the current systems (e.g., VAERS) used to track adverse events are not sufficient to answer that scientific question,” Kheriaty said.’https://www.thecollegefix.com/for-college-aged-vaccination-risks-likely-outweigh-covid-risks-says-uci-medical-ethics-chief/
Discipline in schools is racist again under Obama’s third term!
‘The U.S. Department of Education under the new Biden administration may reinstate an Obama-era guideline that incentivizes school districts to use racial quotas in school discipline, according to an education watchdog.
Washington D.C. attorney and education expert Hans Bader recently sounded the alarm on the development, writing in Liberty Unyielding that during a May event co-hosted by the Education and Justice departments that speakers signaled plans to bring back Obama administration guidelines that encouraged administrators to discipline racial student groups at the same rate.
“Speakers at the event repeatedly treated higher minority discipline rates as being the fault of school officials, rather than the misbehaving kids,” according to Bader.’ https://www.thecollegefix.com/education-department-eyes-racial-quotas-in-school-discipline-expert-warns/
It’s not ok to mention God in a high school graduation speech BUT it is just fine to promote killing the unborn!
‘Earlier this spring, a Michigan high school graduate was asked to remove a reference to God in her speech, though the school later reversed its decision after the matter attracted wide-spread publicity.
Now, a Texas valedictorian’s speech is getting attention for a very different reason: She advocated for ending babies’ lives in abortion.
According to the Hill Reporter, Lake Highlands High School valedictorian Paxton Smith gave an unapproved commencement speech slamming her home state of Texas for passing a heartbeat law to ban abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable.
“As we leave high school, we need to make our voices heard,” Smith began her speech. “… in light of recent events, it feels wrong to talk about anything but what is currently affecting me and millions of other women in this state.”
Speaking Sunday at her commencement ceremony in Dallas, Smith criticized Gov. Greg Abbott for signing the law, saying it will ban abortions before most women even know that they are pregnant.
“And so, before they have the time to decide if they are emotionally, physically, and financially stable enough to carry out a full-term pregnancy, before they have the chance to decide if they can take on the responsibility of bringing another human into the world, the decision has been made for them by a stranger,” she continued.
The heartbeat law could save tens of thousands of unborn babies’ lives in Texas every year if it is not blocked by the courts. In 2019, more than 56,600 unborn babies were aborted in the state, according to state health statistics.
Smith, however, claimed the heartbeat law is “dehumanizing” because it takes away women’s bodily autonomy.
“I hope you can feel how gut-wrenching it is, how dehumanizing it is, to have the autonomy over your own body taken from you,” she said.’https://www.lifenews.com/2021/06/02/high-school-valedictorian-uses-her-speech-to-promote-killing-babies-in-abortions/
