In today's world there are so many things fighting against the Christian faith. Statistics seem to scream at us about how youth are leaving the church in droves, once they're old enough to go out on their own.
My desire, in teaching creation science, is to break down barriers that sometimes make God and His Word confusing. For example, we are taught about Evolution in all walks of life: school, entertainment, history and more. It's just understood by everyone that evolution is a fact. We're told that in the beginning there was a big bang of energy that somehow created everything. We're told that life thrived for endless amounts of time (millions of years.) But then some volcano exploded, or a meteor crashed, or both things happened at the same time. It was a world changing event that destroyed much of the life on this Earth. (You know, dinosaurs, mastodons, and our ancestor named Lucy.)
Several weeks ago my wife found this awesome chart system that could help our kids, and us, use the Bible better. There's tons of books, commentaries and systems to help you learn the Bible. But this one is not a companion book or system. It's something that plugs into your Bible and helps you use it more efficiently. It's called the Child Training Bible.
Dinosaurs In Video Games!
Firstly, if you haven't read Noah Drake And The Dragon Killer yet, check it out at https://www.amazon.com/Noah-Drake-Dragon-Killer-Christian/dp/1540358089/ It's a middle grade fiction about dinosaurs, creation science, family and fun! You'll love it!
As you read, it will soon become obvious that Noah Drake loves video games. In book one his favorite game is called Dino Rodeo. Now, there's no such thing as that game in real life. It's made up for the book. It's actually a compilation of different games I've played, or my two sons have played, in the past.
#1 Your Local Creation Museum
Visiting A Planetarium
While on vacation recently in Utah we patronized a local planetarium! The exhibits were great. There were lots of hands on electronics and even video games to promote space and how the earth was formed. We got to see real meteorites, explore our weight on different planets and deflect earth-killing asteroids with video games.
But it was upsetting that there was absolutely no science, or even thought to promote, the idea that the earth was designed and created by God. Don't you think it's worth promoting a created earth, even if it's in a tiny corner of the huge planetarium?
I guess it really got me when the movie we watched used the exact same language that teacher Kent Hovind makes fun of when he teases about how we were all made from rocks. The movie spoke about how this primordial soup was the beginning of our existence. First there was nothing, then there was gas, then there were oceans, then there was life. Sorry, I don't buy it.
Anyway, the planetarium was fun. We got to see a star map and hear an explanation of the stars and their formations prior to the movie. I also got inspired with lots of electronic exhibits. Some of them could be really cool at a creation museum!
