Answer by John Mackay and Diane Eager The “harmful” gases being referred to are methane and carbon dioxide. Neither of these are dangerous to the environment – they are part of it. We also need to note that cows are a minor source of these gases in the overall ecosystems of the world. Both gases […]

TESTING EVOLUTION: What are evolutionists testing when they claim evolution is a fact because it can be tested?
The original question was: Evolutionists say that evolution is a fact because it is testable (i.e. there is empirical evidence). They seem to be very positive with that ‘evidence’? What are they testing that’s confirming their belief in evolution? Answer by John Mackay What are the evolutionists testing? The answer will surprise most people. Never […]
ORIGIN OF LIFE: Since all chemicals needed for life occur by natural processes do we need a creator to make life?
The original question was: My biology lecturer has stated that since the early days of Millers amino acid experiment we have discovered natural processes on earth and in stars can make amino acids for proteins, sugars for DNA, complex carbohydrates and on and on, so no god is needed to make life because given long […]

GIANTS? If people before the flood lived to be nearly 1,000 could they have grown to 5m in height?
The original question was: You say that the giant animals in the fossil record grew to be so large because they lived for a long time. The Bible says people lived to nearly 1,000 years before the flood. If that is so could people grow to be over 5 metres (16 ft 5ins) tall? Answer […]
DNA LIFESPAN: What is it? What happens as DNA degrades? Can it last millions of years?
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 […]
DAWKINS has been able to show evolution by computer modelling? If Creation is true, how come?
Answer by Stu Kennedy Introduction In 1986, is his book The Blind Watchmaker, atheist Evolutionist and Oxford biologist Richard Dawkins referred to his WEASEL computer program, which was designed to demonstrate that the mechanism of Darwinian evolution was feasible. The WEASEL program he used has been widely copied in school biology programs as confirming the […]
POPULATION: If animals didn’t die before Adam sinned, wouldn’t the world have become overpopulated?
Answer by John Mackay The hidden assumption within this question is that animal reproduction is both natural and autonomous: male plus female = offspring. The Biblical picture is quite different. So let us take into consideration what God who made animals, plants and all life says about how creatures multiply and fill the earth. Let’s […]
WATER TO WINE: What happened when Jesus turned water into wine?
Answer by Steve Stranghoener In John 2:1-11 we’re told how Jesus’ mother, Mary, asks him to help after the wine runs out, an event which in Jewish circles could have been very embarrassing for the wedding party. Jesus then proceeds to turn ordinary water into wine instantly by the power of his spoken word. The […]
VITAMIN C GENE? Humans share the same broken vitamin C gene as apes. Doesn’t this prove evolution?
The original question was: If man was separately created, how come apes have the same broken gene for making vitamin C as humans do? Surely this could only come about by man evolving from chimpanzees. To claim God made the same mutant in both stretches credulity. Answer by John Mackay To argue that the same […]
