Fruitafosser Missed the Ark!

This little guy was about the size of a chipmunk, so two of them would not have taken up very much space on the Ark anyway. He was an insectivore and appears highly adapted for eating termites out of their mounds. Termite mounds would obviously have been problematic to store on the Ark, but presumably […]

Sea Turtle

Extinct Sea Turtles Made the Ark?

Ark Encounter holds that primarily aquatic species are not on the Ark. The sign listing the species even lists examples of kinds not required on the Ark in the bottom right, and Chelonioidea is on there, with examples “Green Sea Turtle, Loggerhead Sea Turtle, Leatherback Sea Turtle”. So I was rather surprised to find Protostegidae […]

Owls missed the Ark!

Owls missed the Ark!

The family Strigidae (true owls) is missing from the poster on the Ark Encounter. The Barn Owl family (Tytonidae) and three extinct families of owls are on the list, but the true owls are missing. I assume this one is a simple oversight, particularly because I believe there are representations of true owls on the […]

No Opt-Out Allowed

No Opt-Out Allowed

Today I watched the video NO OPT-OUT ALLOWED: The California Sex Ed Indoctrination. I haven’t been paying a lot of attention to the California sex ed changes because I don’t live in California. But from all of the hype around this video I honestly thought it was possible that California had actually gone too far, […]

Missed the Ark Mondays

Missed the Ark Mondays

It’s critical to any study of Ark logistics to determine the cargo. Thus, determining how many animals on the Ark has always been a critical question. Different Creationists have come to different conclusions on this problem throughout history. I’ve been following Answers in Genesis’s project to determine the Ark Kinds since the first publications were […]

Introduction to Young Earth Creationism

Introduction to Young Earth Creationism

Imagine that you knew that everything written in the Bible was literally true. Suppose that you had personally observed every event described in the Bible yourself. But that’s actually insufficient, because you know that your senses can be fooled by magic tricks and optical illusions, while God is never fooled and never lies. You accept […]

Welcome

Welcome

Hello and welcome to my new blog. I tried blogging once years ago and never really got into it. I have no idea why I think it will suddenly go better now that blogging is dead. I guess I’m some kind of backward hipster – I only get into things after they’re no longer cool. […]

Pew Study on Religious Violence (2012)

Note: This was originally published on my old blog which no longer exists. It is now relevant again because this year’s study just came out. I am planning to refer to it in an upcoming update, so I am reposting it on this blog under the original date to avoid confusion. There was a recent […]
