MUTUALISM: Rhino birds eats ticks and rhinos benefit. Did God make them for that purpose before the Fall?
The original question was: I was wondering if the symbiotic relationship between rhinos and birds that eat ticks off their back existed before the fall. If it did, does that mean there was insect death before the fall? If not, was this a symbiotic relationship that just developed on its own instead of being created […]
RETROVIRUSES: Humans have the same Endogenous Retroviruses as apes. Doesn’t this prove we evolved from them?
The original Question was: All apes, including humans, share some Endogenous Retrovirus (ERVs) in common that do not exist in any other mammals. So if you find a dog with an ape ERV you could falsify evolution. Have they found contradicting ERVs to this yet? Or is there some reason why they likely won’t find? […]
PLANT DEATH: If there was no death before sin, could creation days be any length if plants made on Day 3 couldn’t die before insects arrived on Day 6?
The original question was: You claim that Days 4, 5 and 6 in Genesis have to be real 24 hour days because any plants made on Day 3 could not have survived without the insects made on Day 6.This argument has a major flaw, i.e. If there was no death before sin, then not even […]
INCEST: How did the population increase after Adam and Eve if God doesn’t allow brother sister marriages?
The original question was: Does the bible support brother and sister sexual relationships? If not, how did the population ever increase after Adam and Eve? Answer by Diane Eager Genesis is very clear that God created one man, Adam, and one woman, Eve. Eve was given this name by Adam because she was “the mother […]
The original question was: I have read and watched Professor Neeland’s material on your site about life spans of various molecules. What does he have to say about scientific claims we can extract detectable DNA from material hundreds of thousands to millions of years old? What is a reliable lifespan for intact DNA? And what […]
BREATHING: Inhaled foreign bodies usually enter the right bronchus. Is this a design flaw in creation?
Answer by Diane Eager First of all, a brief human anatomy lesson: When you breathe air moves down the throat, through the larynx (voice box) and down the trachea (windpipe). The trachea then divides into two main airways that convey the air into each lung. These are the right and left main bronchi (singular: bronchus). […]
A reader has sent in links to two evolutionist sites listing examples of speciation, and asked us which are not real examples of speciation. The list includes the Hawthorn fly, Three-spined sticklebacks, Cichlid fishes in Lake Nagubago, Tennessee cave salamanders, Greenish Warbler, Ensatina salamanders, Larus gulls, Petroica multicolour, Drosophila (fruit flies), Mayr bird fauna, Finches, […]
Answer by Diane Eager It is commonly believed that white blood cells only exist to fight infectious diseases, but they do have other functions. First of all, we need to note that the cells that are called “white blood cells” do not actually live their lives or carry out their functions in the blood. These […]
Answer by Diane Eager Let’s start by asking where the figure of 49% comes from. The complete genome of fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe (the yeast used in brewing) was found to have only 4,824 protein coding genes, whilst humans have over 20,000. Therefore, it cannot be a reference to 49% of the total human genome. […]
