Where’s your Credentials?

Ever since I started blogging back in 2009 there’s been two uncertainties constantly nagging at me. One is the fear of being wrong online (which we discussed on the first episode of the Homeschooled NerdCast) and the other is the feeling of incompetence because of my lack of experience and credentials. I can’t help but feel like every time someone watches one of my videos or reads an article I wrote they’re judging me. Like … Read more

Lunar Design

IMG_1802

The moon is our nearest neighbor in space and currently the only object outside of earth that mankind has ever set foot on. Because of its relatively short distance from us, we probably know more about the moon than any other object in the universe. Today evolutionary scientists debate over how the moon formed. Their theories for the moon’s origin have ranged from a random space rock that was captured by Earth’s gravity, to part … Read more

Things that go Bump in the Night – Resource Review

things go bump

Black holes and Dark Matter; those are two subjects that I’ve always lacked understanding in. Of course, I’m not alone in this. Many people don’t understand how these unseen objects work—and when it comes to dark matter, even scientists themselves are in the dark as well! That’s why I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of Dr. Danny Faulkner’s new DVD ‘Things that go Bump in the Night’ from the AiG … Read more

Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman – Resource Review

Through the Worm

A couple years ago, I got this astronomy DVD for Christmas; ‘Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman’. Recently I’ve found that it’s a pretty famous show about astronomy. So, I thought I’d write a review of it so you guys could hear what I thought of it. The first thing that struck me when I first started watching it was all the religious topics. Episodes like “Is there a God?” “Where did we come from?” … Read more

The Six Days of Genesis Resource Review

sixdays

Wonders without Number: The Six Days of Genesis is the first in a DVD series based on David Rives’ book Wonders without Number. The first episode features Paul Taylor author of ‘The Six Days of Genesis’ and covered what exactly the Bible meant by a ‘Day’ in Genesis 1. The video did a good job of explaining why we know what Genesis was referring to and why it matters. Many Christians get up in arms … Read more

Cosmos’ Mission

Cosmos-Neil-deGrasse-Tyson-1280x960

“Scientific Ignorance”—those are the words that Neil DeGrasse Tyson uses to describe the belief in God. The new Cosmos show a lot of interest and will probably be shown in many high schools in the future. For some people this is alarming because of the amount of evolutionary content in the series. But for me, it’s a challenge—the darker the world is the brighter lights like Creation Astronomy Now, Creationist Company, the Creation Club, and … Read more

Plants before Stars?

light thru trees

How could the plants have survived until the creation of the Sun? It’s a question that evolutionists have asked creationists for some time. At first this may seem like a good question and put us on the defensive. But what exactly is this question challenging? The issue is really only a problem when you start from a purely naturalistic perspective. In a world where nature is all there is, it would make sense that you’d … Read more
