What does an ancient formula for toothpaste have to do with the question of evil in this world?

Easy. They’re both in the latest issue of Creation. Issue after issue, Creation explores how our beliefs about creation impact everything we believe about God and His world.

Written in down-to-earth language, this full-color magazine, now in its 25th year, keeps families informed about the latest science and archaeology that confirms the Bible’s history.

How Can God Be Good?

Take the classic argument against the holy character of God:

Why us?
  1. God, who claims to be good and all-powerful, made the world.
  2. The world is full of evil.
  3. Therefore, God can’t be both good and all-powerful, or else He would not permit this state of affairs.

In “Why us? The problem of evil,” Ken Ham cuts through this knotty philosophical debate with easy-to-understand answers. If we begin with Genesis, we can see that the word evil has meaning only because there is a good God in the first place!

In reality, the people who have a problem are the ones who reject the Bible’s history. If you believe that suffering and tragedy have been a part of this earth for millions of years, then, to be consistent, you must admit that there is no such thing as ultimate good or evil.

For the full article on the problem of evil, look for “Why us?” in the latest issue of Creation.

From Apemen to Homosexual Marriage

This unique family magazine is crammed with 56 pages of insights on a range of topics, from biology and astronomy to ancient history and philosophy (e.g. the problem of evil).

Why me?

Horrific tragedies befall Christians, too. In Walking Through Shadows, AiG’s Carl Wieland describes his life-threatening accident in 1986, followed by 56 surgical operations. Co-author Ken Ham recounts the slow, tragic death of his brother—a gifted preacher—from a rare degenerative brain disease, and he shows how the “big picture” of Genesis gave his family answers that helped them endure.

Readers find simple answers to profound questions … from cultural catastrophes, such as “same-sex” marriage (God—not man—defined marriage, Genesis 2:24), to recent scientific discoveries, such as fully formed galaxies at the edge of the universe (an impossibility if you believe the big bang, but logical if you believe in creation).

The latest issue of Creation features lots more valuable information you won’t find anywhere else:

  • Louis Leakey, “the top name in apeman research.”
    The son of missionaries, Louis preached on street corners as a youth, but his rejection of Genesis opened the door for him to abandon his faith.

  • Incredible design of kangaroo rats.
    Research shows how these amazing creatures can survive in the desert with virtually no water.

  • The “faint young sun paradox.”
    Although the sun is warming up and “brighter,” evolutionists have not found evidence in the earth’s record of a time when the sun was faint and cold.

  • And much, much more.

So What About Ancient Toothpaste?

A formula for toothpaste was recently found in an Egyptian papyrus. Why is this significant?

Read Creation to get the full answer. But here’s a hint: These “primitive” people added iris flowers to their toothpaste many centuries before modern dental researchers “discovered” this powerful agent against gum disease.

Which history of mankind makes more sense of such discoveries: we evolved from “primitive” apemen over millions of years, or God created the first man, Adam, in His image, and so our ancestors were as intelligent as we are (or more so!)?
