Answer by John Mackay Genesis chapter 1 verse 16 reads “he made the stars also,” where stars is a translation of the Hebrew word ‘kokab’. (see Strongs 3556) All modern English versions use the word ‘star’ here, so what about planets? Where do they come from? Actually, I still remember learning in my Year Eight […]
SIX DAYS: Do any doctrines depend on the six days of Creation, or is it just an interesting but irrelevant issue?
Answer by John Mackay Let’s start with an eye-banger! Those who claim the Genesis six days of Creation narrative is not an issue as no Christian doctrine depends on it, actually means no one would have been able to recognise Jesus Christ as Lord or Saviour? So what do I mean? There is no doubt […]
Answer by John Mackay In Genesis you find no specific instruction given to Adam and Eve to produce “after their own kind”, as all the other creatures are told (beginning with Genesis 1:11). But you do find the instruction for man to multiply and fill the earth (Genesis 1:28). This instruction was repeated to Noah […]
WEEDS: Plants can be weeds in one place but not in another. How can weeds be the result of the Fall?
The original question was: In your Evidence News December 16 December 2015 you claim that weeds are a consequence of the Fall and wouldn’t have existed in Eden, but isn’t the definition of a weed subjective? Aren’t weeds just plants growing where you don’t want them to? So a given plant would be a weed […]
The original question was: If you can show me just one error Professor Dawkins has made, I may be impressed with your pathetic attempts to establish creation! Answer by John Mackay and Diane Eager You have asked for only one error, but we will be generous and provide two. One: The Vertebrate Eye In his […]

Answer by John Mackay This is one of those Psalms that begin with this author’s favourite line “Bless the Lord, Oh my soul!” Makes the singing great and that’s what the Psalms were designed to be …songs! They are therefore poetry, which is particularly obvious in their Hebrew parallelism where the same thought is repeated […]
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 […]
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 […]
Answer by Diane Eager This question reminds us of a church enterprise we came across recently. An Australian country church brought the local hotel when it went bankrupt. Their aim was to make it into a youth centre. They discovered the publican had named the toilets Adam and Eve, but they had to change this […]
