Author BioBen Russell is creator of CreationTales.com and author of "Noah Drake And The Dragon Killer". He's not a scientist or a doctor of history; he's just a guy that's interested in those subjects. He's very interested in the teaching of creation. His inner child gets excited about dinosaurs and the idea that they're not millions of years old. He despises the theory of evolution, believing it helped turn our society against God. Ben is a family man. He and his lovely wife have four happy kids and they make their home among the roaming hills of the Missouri Ozarks.
Inspiration On Spaceship EarthIn early 2015 my family and I were taking a much needed vacation at one of my favorite destinations, Disney World. My favorite park of the 4 could definitely be Epcot. Disney has done an awesome job making education and history fun. Plus it's nowhere near as crowded as the Magic Kingdom.
One recurring theme I found on the historical rides began to annoy me. They all seem to start with the assumption that there was a big bang and creation evolved on it's own. I know this is the common thought in today's society, especially since that's what is taught in public schools. But WHAT IF there was another way?
What if creation didn't evolve? After all, there are good arguments against evolution. The 2nd law of thermodynamics shows how things naturally decay over time. This LAW seems to trump the THEORY of evolution that suggests things improve over time.
Creation Tales is my way of taking historical or factual accounts and using them to tell stories. My family and I often listen to audio books while riding in the car. It is my goal to create a series of stories that entertain and explain how things could have been made by a Creator.
One of the subjects that interests me most is the potential for dinosaurs or dragons to have lived during the same time as man. Modern science teaches that "dinosaurs" became extinct because of some unknown disaster. But what if they weren't killed off by some ice age or meteor strike. Maybe the historical accounts of warriors slaying the dragons could be based on realistic accounts. That could be possible, right?
Accounts of extraordinary sightings seem to be reported every day. But most of them are chalked to be unexplained phenomena (or the people are crazy). Immediate examples that us Americans recognize are Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. People have reported sighting the elusive creatures for many years. One popular phenomena that makes it's home in the United States is a sea monster in Lake Champlain.
A homeschool family discovers Champ
Champ has been sighted by people since the 1800s, and possibly since the 1600s. Champ is said to be a plesiosaur, or a big fish. Regardless what it is, or what the family of it's are, sightings continue to come in every year from people visiting the lake.
My first book will follow a homeschool family as they vacation on the shores of Lake Champlain. While there they have a vacation to remember for years to come, and it's all because of Champ!
