Recently, news articles have said that acts like adultery and stealing
can be blamed on our evolution. What are these incredible things
some evolutionists are saying about human behavior?
a new fad called ‘evolutionary psychology.’ Remember
the old saying—the devil made me do it? Perhaps the way to
put it now is: ‘evolution made me do it!’
some will object, “If we allowed appealing to God anytime
we don't understand something, then science itself would
be impossible, for science proceeds on the assumption of
natural causality.” This argument is a red herring. It is
true that science is not compatible with just any form of
theism, particularly a theism that holds to a capricious
god who intervenes so often that the contrast between primary
and secondary causality is unintelligible. But Christian
theism holds that secondary causality is God's usual mode
and primary causality is infrequent, comparatively speaking.
That is why Christianity, far from hindering the development
of science, actually provided the womb for its birth and

Investigation, Baker Book House Company, Grand Rapids,
Michigan, p. 226, 1989.
Time magazine, for example, had an article that said infidelity
is built into our genes. Because of our alleged evolutionary history,
it said we’re programmed to cheat on our spouses.
We’re also hearing that homosexual tendencies are there because
they’re part of some people’s DNA make-up!
While this is all preposterous, there is a connection between evolution
and immorality, but it’s not genetic. Believing in evolution
can lead to immorality. Evolutionary thinking undermines the idea
of absolute standards for our behavior. If you believe that we’re
not created, and there’s no Creator, and so no one owns us,
we have a right to set our own rules.
Evolution is not only bad science, it’s bad psychology. We
should be guided by God’s Word, the Bible. It’s there
that we learn that our sinful behavior is a result of the fall of
the first man, Adam, in Genesis.

Most of our domestic dog varieties, like poodles, have numerous
problems due to harmful mutations. But in Genesis 1:31, God described
all that He had created as being ‘very good.’ But how
could a poodle, with all these mutations resulting in health problems,
be described this way?
Listen as Ken Ham discusses why he believes poodles
are the ‘end of the line’!

Textbook of the Month:
Our featured textbook of this month is The
Geology Book. Whether jutting skyward, or languishing in
the murky depths of the deep, rocks and sediments hold our little
planet together. Dr John Morris takes the reader on a tour of the
earth’s crust, pointing out both the natural beauty and the
scientific evidences for creation. Well illustrated, this book presents
an accurate view of earth’s geologic history. Online
lessons are also available!

Are logic and reason compatible with Christianity?
and reason are far from being incompatible with biblical Christianity.
Rather, they are essential. Without them it is impossible to deduce
anything from the true propositions of the 66 books of Scripture,
the Christian’s final authority.

Praise and Prayer | Upcoming AiG Events
Praise and Prayer
Please pray over the following items during the next two weeks
Pray for God’s direction as we create a strategy for
moving the entire staff later this year to the AiG complex under
construction along I–275 in Northern Kentucky (of which
almost half the facility will be devoted to the Creation
Museum). The staff is currently spread out over four separate
buildings, which has presented a communications challenge. Also,
some of our current facilities are old, with A/C problems and
other challenges, and thus do not provide the best working conditions.
A special mailer about the museum project has been arriving
in supporters’ homes over the past week. A special audio
CD from Ken Ham was enclosed. Pray that many more AiG friends
will get behind this national, Bible-upholding center with their
financial support—praise God, over $11 million has already
been raised through the generosity of God’s people.
Our sister AiG ministry in South Africa is looking for volunteers
to help advance the creation/gospel message in that needy country.
- Pray for the AiG speakers below as they travel and give messages
on biblical authority.
Pray for the following 2004 Bible-upholding meetings & conferences,
including the speaker and those involved in the planning.
