This book is written primarily for Christians who may have difficulty understanding the ways of science and scientists. In particular, it is for students being taught about evolution, who wonder if they have to choose between believing the Bible or believing science. A geneticist from a major university, Dr. John Sanford examines the validity of evolution’s Primary Axiom—that man is merely the result of random mutations plus natural selection. This revolutionary book details compelling new genetic evidence that the human genome is deteriorating, and has always been deteriorating due to accumulations of mutations. Inspired by the pioneering creationist physicist D. Russell Humphreys, and building on the work of secular cosmologist  Moshe Carmeli, physics professor John Hartnett employs the evidence which demands another revolution in cosmological physics. The author debunks the most accepted teachings about evolution, giving tremendous answers for those struggling to reconcile the Bible and science. Readers are given solid answers to questions about the speed of light, geology, and the big bang. These concise, relevant topics answer questions on the minds of Christians and seekers everywhere. Ham has discovered that multitudes of people want to know the answers to key questions like, “Where did Cain get his wife?" and “How could Noah fit all of those animals on the ark?” 100% evolution-free and biblically correct • Sequel to the popular Did Adam Have a Bellybutton? • Popular creationist speaker Ken Ham answers the most-asked questions about creation One of the greatest myths about the biblical view of creation is that it is based on religion—not science. As a result, Christians who believe in six-day creation are often looked down upon. However, this book shows, that six-day creation is rooted in science, but it does not contradict the Bible! In 1979, New Jersey orthodontist Jack Cuozzo was granted access to the world's most famous Neanderthal skeletons in Germany, France, and Israel. His interest in the mysterious remains began as mere curiosity about these ancient creatures. His findings, though, are sure to shock the scientific world. Based on his x-rays and photographs, Cuozzo maintains that the key to understanding who the Neanderthals were lies in the pages of aged manuscripts readily available to anyone: the Bible Global Warming Global Warming: Emerging Science An engaging look at significant discoveries through the centuries, mostly geared around science and invention. Dr. DeYoung uses his astronomy background as a basis for sharing many significant events down through the years, and adds to the mix with facts related to many different areas of science. The Bible is not just a book of theology. It touches every aspect of life - including science. • A revision of one of the classic defenses of the Christian faith • Contains many evidences that the Bible is scientifically accurate One of the most serious fallacies today is the belief that genuine scientists cannot believe the Bible. But the truth is that many of the major scientific contributions were made by scientists who were dedicated men of God Did you know that while in flight, the sparrow's heart can beat up to 760 times per minute? Or that a baby blue whale grows at a rate of 3.3 kg an hour while it's nursing, a grand total of 17 tons by the end of the nursing stage? Featuring more than 100 animals, this long-awaited Zoo Guide includes beautiful pictures and explores the amazing facts and design features that point to our awesome Creator. Excellent gift for anyone who loves animals! A window for children into the world of animals God created, and which are mentioned in the Bible. From the mysterious 'behemoth' and 'leviathan' described in Job, to the popular lion and lamb, the animals described and illustrated (in alphabetical order) make this a book that teems with life Are there really creatures that produce fire to defend themselves? In this book, Duane Gish, the author, who has faced evolutionists in almost 300 debates, reviews the history of the controversy, and critiques and challenges the attacks of evolutionists against the theory of special creation and its proponents Dr Jonathan Sarfati presents case after case for amazing design in the living world, and demolishes theories of chemical evolution of the first life. Yet unlike many in the prominent Intelligent Design Movement, he is up-front about the truth of the Bible. This enables him to refute many anti-design arguments, and answer the key question: ‘Who is the Designer?’ Did you know that while in flight, the sparrow's heart can beat up to 760 times per minute? Or that a baby blue whale grows at a rate of 3.3 kg an hour while it's nursing, a grand total of 17 tons by the end of the nursing stage?

I have a question about American Indian origins. Why do scientists think that they came here 15,000 years ago when archeological evidence points to their civilizations thriving from 1000BC to 1500AD?
From Steve Rowitt, Th.M., Ph.D. (c)

Thank you for your question about the American Indians a.k.a. Paleoamericans and their migration to the American continent. The traditional theory held that the first Americans crossed the land bridge from Siberia to Alaska around 11,500 years ago and followed an "ice-free corridor" between two large Canadian ice sheets (the Laurentide and Cordilleran) to reach unglaciated lands to the south. These first inhabitants, whose archaeological sites are scattered across North and South America, were called the Clovis people, named after the town in New Mexico where their fluted spear points used for hunting mammoth were first found in 1932.

Today there are many other theories about the migration of the Indian population to the Americas. Some theories include a migration from the islands in the Pacific to Central and South America as well as the northern crossing from Siberia to Alaska. Evidence for diverse migrations into the New World also comes from Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) research on living American Indian populations. These studies have consistently shown similarities between American Indians and recent populations in Asia and Siberia, but also unique American characteristics, which the very early crania have also shown.

Studies of the language of the Native American Indians have shown them to be extremely diverse. Language in general has not been a friend to Darwinian Theory. The distinct differences of languages even where geography might imply an evolutionary link, has not been clearly demonstrated. In fact, the biblical account of the Tower of Babel and the confusing of languages are more reflective of the biblical model of language development than its evolutionary counterpart.

What is important to remember is that the time frames being used by most anthropologists will conform to the evolutionary timeline of Darwinian Theory. What needs to be considered when examining this subject is the biblical timeframe of approximately 6,000 years and the evidence of the worldwide cataclysmic Flood also fits well into archeological and anthropological evidence we see.
