We are not aware of how advanced the antediluvians were with meteorological sciences or how high the civilization reached technologically. We find many fascinating objects buried in coal that are believed to come from that period. It is considered that the first attempts to predict the weather were around 650 BC in the Babylon Empire. By the third century BC the Chinese had developed “a meteorological calendar that divided the year into twenty-four festivals, each dedicated to a different meteorological situation.”
This month we continue the review 1 of">https://tasc-creationscience.org/sites/default/files/2021-09/sept2021_0.pdf of Stephen Meyer's new book Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries That Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe.
Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries That Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe is Stephen C. Meyer's most recent book advancing scientific arguments for intelligent design in nature. In his previous books, Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt, Meyer focused on the origin of the information in biology. In Return, Meyer expands the discussion to include physics and cosmology. Meyer examines the origin of the universe, the fine tuning of physics, the origin of life, the information in biomolecules, the Cambrian Explosion, and macroevolution. And, in contrast to his former works, in Return Meyer explains why Christian theism is the best explanation for what we see in nature.
On January 17 of this year the pastor of Grace Point Church, Bentonville, Arkansas asked one of the AIG (Answers in Genesis) speakers to avoid talking about the part of Genesis where God says He made us male and female and the part that says marriage is the union of a man and a woman after the AIG speaker mentioned these things in the early morning service. And then the pastor removed the AIG presentation from the church’s website as soon as he could get to it and apologized for inviting the AIG speaker to speak the following Sunday. Whatever happened to our Christian worldview?

We are faced with an alarming trend of rising atheism in our youth today.

Otherwise, as President Reagan said, “A nation not under God is a nation already gone under.” Let us all please rise to the challenge and reverse this trend.
Have you ever heard that “All scientists accept evolution as a proven fact” or “real scientists don’t believe in God?” Did you believe it?
