Today is the one-year anniversary of my debate with Bill Nye, and we praise God for the many positive testimonies of people, particularly young people, that have been emboldened in their faith as a result of watching the debate. Watch the video below where I discuss the impact of the debate.

+Emily Lamb Hello Emily. I appreciate your kind thoughts and good will. That is very decent of you. But I cannot agree with your presentation of faith. I have faith in my wife, because I know she has unconditional love for me. I have faith in my friends that they will do the right thing by me. But I cannot put faith into an entity that for all intensive purposes simply does not exist. That's not faith, it's just blindly accepting someone else's story as being true without any evidence at all.

Case in point: what if I was to tell you that Thor the Thunder God loved you and wanted you to believe in him. He is extensively written about in Viking history so he must be real. By denying him you deny his love and being saved.

How would you answer?

PS: I'm not here picking fights. I don't do that. I am here trying to convince people that reason and critical thinking are the way forward, not blind acceptance or faith in the blatantly untrue.

I think it’s about time Christians woke up and understood that even though there are Christian missionaries in the public school system (and they need our prayers), by and large these schools are actually churches of atheism. Millions of students are being taught that all life and the universe arose by natural processes—by naturalism. But we need to call naturalism what it is—atheism. Regardless of where parents send their children to be educated (and that is their decision before the Lord), it does need to be understood that as these young people are sent to the public schools for around seven hours a day, and they are largely being indoctrinated in an anti-God religion. If one is not for Christ, then one is against Christ—there is no neutral position. If the education system is not for Christ, it is against Christ. If the textbooks are not for Christ, they are against Christ! If the teachers aren’t for Christ, they are against Christ!

Obviously you can't take it all literally because that would mean hating/honouring parents at the same time, which is impossible. 
We are made in the image of God, meaning we have spirits that will live forever—in one of those two places.  We can take the parts about heaven and hell literally because God is telling us directly about these things because we need to know about them and He wants us to be with Him in the one and also to avoid the other.

Well, it comes as no surprise that the media and bloggers are at it again—trying to denigrate the Ark project. 

The propaganda war against our Ark Encounter project just entered a new phase. I believe some atheists are so obsessed with what AiG is doing to get out the truth of God’s Word to the culture that they search daily for whatever they can try to use to attack this ministry. Read more about it and my response to the latest propaganda at the link below.

And
2) The analogy is false anyway. God has certain knowledge of our actions because he has omniscience and possesses all knowledge. In the analogy, you have confidence, not absolute knowledge like God, and it is based on a very limited amount of evidence. It is not absolute knowledge. For all you know, the car is going to break down now, preventing the child's death.

Bill Nye (the Science Guy) sent me a gift!

I was surprised but pleased that Mr. Nye took time to send me a gift before Christmas that contained a special message in it for me. I think you will be very interested in what he sent and wrote.

You can read the special message and see what I've sent Mr. Nye in return in my article below. 
The debate with Bill Nye really illustrated the clash of two worldviews—choosing to decide truth for ourselves instead of trusting God’s Word.

Bill Nye Tells a Fairy Tale

Bill Nye “the Science Guy” of TV and debate fame has produced a short video that’s on YouTube (and was promoted through various media outlets) supposedly to explain evolution with what’s called Emoji!

Now the video has had about 1.3 million views. And you might be surprised when I tell you that I think it would be a good one for you to sit down and watch with your kids—so that you can clearly show them that evolution is just another fairy tale. And Bill Nye makes it so obvious. Read my response at the link below.
As Bill Nye attempts to explain the origin of life, explain to your children that really the belief in billions of years is part of his worldview—or religion.

While Ken Ham is not exclusionary of Christian theists who do not accept his 6 day literalism, he does clearly believe that the difference subsists in the acceptance of Jesus. Therefore he is saying that members of non-Christian religions are going to hell. He has even said that we should call off the search for aliens because they are all going to hell, because they have never received the word of Jesus. Well if that is what he believes, then his God is terribly unjust. What argument can you produce to suggest that the God of whom he speaks about - Yahweh - the war God, is a Just God? He hasn't got a good one in my submission. Meanwhile there are billions whom do not acknowledge Yahweh and are going to hell on his account. That is not moral or Just, just dogmatism.

So you are building an ark.  Great, your choice and life is so fantastic to give man choices.

So you are making this a theme park to amplify and educate your Christian beliefs to others.  Great, I am sure in the eyes of God he would be absolutely pleased to see His children engage in spreading His word.

So you are disallowing any religious factions outside of Christians to partake in the building of this extraordinary piece of work. The reason - they are not Christians and do not believe in Jesus Christ as being the Son of God.

I am going to remain as relaxed as possible while I try and explain myself and how much this does not make any sense in this or God’s world.

Let’s start out with the event first and go from there.
Was there a flood? Christian or not it seems there is quite a bit of historical - less scientific -  evidence found that a great flood could have occurred around the time the Bible states.

So for argument sake let’s say it did. And let’s say a man called Noah actually built this ark, filled it with animals and survived this terrible disaster. On that I think you and I can agree.

Now for the harder part.
Turn to present day and you have decided to take it upon yourself and rebuild this boat. And it appears the reason for this is not incredibly clear because the state has now entered into it by giving you a sizable amount of tax breaks. But I digress.

Regardless it is my understanding you are a Christian man and you want to spread the Christian word by building this and surrounding it inside a park for all to see and be part of.

I can buy that too.
So here is what I can not buy.

I have heard on a news show that you are disallowing faiths other than Christian to help in making this a reality.. So let’s look at that from various angles.

You are a practicing Christian and believe that Christ is the way to redemption.
--Time Perspective
If you take it from time you will know that Noah and the flood came before Christ and Christianity. Having said that and knowing my Bible -  it was God who called upon Noah. And if God was the centerpiece and if other religions besides Christianity believe in God as well then why would you single out only Christians as employees.
--Bible Perspective
If the Bible teaches you that to get to redemption you must go through Christ then explain where Noah and all his descendants as well as all the descendants of God are that came before Christ? That I would like to know based on your thinking.

--Christ Perspective
Being a Christian myself I have learned even from my Bible teachings that all men and women are loved and I believed saved by God’s word. Christ as far as I have been taught never threw anyone aside just because they did not believe in him. Even on the cross He said Forgive them Father for they know not what they do..lotsa love there.

And in that statement alone I send to you because I highly disagree with in forbidding others based on just a religious belief. Christ did not do it, God does not do it, and neither should you.
I call that prejudice. Plain and simple.

In other words my point is if you can open your heart to other Christians but close your heart to everyone else then you really do not get God.

Students Told to Worship the Sun?

Imagine if public school students in their science classes were encouraged to worship the sun. And yet this is happening! But how do they get away with it? Well, they just call worshipping the sun “science,” and then claim they can teach this “science” in the public schools! Find out more in my article below.
The government is actually allowing a religion to be imposed on public school students, and using our tax dollars to do it.

A lot of anger and contempt. Where is the scientific rational in that.

We are saddened by the tragic attacks in Paris and around France and our hearts go out to the family and friends of those who have been killed. 

Recently, more than three million people gathered in Paris and around France for a peaceful march to stand in opposition to terrorism and to show world unity.

I encourage you to read my post below to learn about why God's creation includes death and suffering and also about the true unity we can have in Jesus Christ.
Without the Bible as your authority, you have no foundation from which to denounce terrorism as an evil.

Is the Bible just a book of stories?

Watch my presentation on the 7 C's of History very soon at 9 AM (ET) at the link below.

Most people look at the Bible as a book that contains many interesting stories and theological teaching. While this is true, the Bible is so much more—it’s a history book that reveals the major events of history that are foundational to the Bible’s important messages. My talk at the link below will explore this topic in detail.

The Ark Is Happening!

I wanted to share a very exciting 9-minute video with you that offers an update of what is happening with the construction of our life-size Noah’s Ark (south of Cincinnati).

After my wife and I returned from our visit with family in Australia, I interviewed one of the project managers for the Ark and our VP of attractions. Even though I have been intimately involved with this project, I gained some fascinating insights into what has gone into the planning of the engineering and architectural work. I was also amazed to see how much work has been done since I toured the site the last time and as we get ready for the timber construction of the Ark itself (to occur in the first half of next year).

While I was at the actual Ark site in Williamstown, Kentucky, this week, I was interviewed by a local newspaper reporter. She asked me, “What can I tell the people of Kentucky?” I replied, “This is happening!” Yes—the Ark construction is happening—and still on schedule for the 2016 opening.

Enjoy the video update below and rejoice with us.

Well, it’s good to link to a media article that shows the reporter actually researched the topic and reports the items correctly in accord with the actual facts. Sadly in today’s world, much of the media is out for sensational, misleading headlines, and then publishes agenda-driven articles meant to undermine and spread misinformation. That’s why I’m pleased to be able to link to this well-written article on the Ark project and recent happenings with the state of Kentucky by reporter Bob Unruh at WND (formerly WorldNetDaily). I urge you to read this: http://www.wnd.com/2014/12/kentucky-does-aclu-on-noahs-ark/
