In what way does Earth’s atmosphere help our radio broadcasts?
1785, before examining the evidence, the deist James
Hutton, ‘the founder of modern geology,’ proclaimed:
‘… the past
history of our globe must be explained by what can
be seen to be happening now … . No powers are to be employed
that are not natural to the globe, no action to be admitted
except those of which we know the principle’ (emphasis added).
This was later called
uniformitarianism by Charles Lyell. This is a not
a refutation of biblical teaching of creation and the Flood,
but a dogmatic refusal to consider them as even possible

gospel can now be heard by nearly 6 billion people on shortwave
radio because of a fascinating feature of a layer in our atmosphere
called the ionosphere.
Radio waves travel in straight lines. The reason why they encircle
the earth is because they are reflected to the ground or ocean from
the ionosphere, and then from the ground or ocean back to the ionosphere
and so on around the earth.
As a result of this feature that God has built into the atmosphere,
His Word can be beamed into countries where the Bible is banned.
We have had some of our creation messages broadcast to nations that
would normally not be able to hear this program.
What a gracious God we have! He knew that Adam would sin and that
the wonderful message of creation and the gospel would need to be
spread around the world. In His mercy he provided a means for this
when He created the earth and its atmosphere.
God created the earth knowing radio would need the ionosphere!
