Noah’s Ark Replica to Sail Across Atlantic Ocean

A few years ago, Johan Huibers, a Dutch carpenter, made a full sized replica of Noah’s Ark. Since then, it has been on display. He is now planning to travel across the Atlantic Ocean during the summer of 2016. A couple years later, it should also come to California. I do not know how it will be powered (or towed) nor if it will have any animals aboard, but just watching the wood vessel cross the ocean should be an experience.

Defining Evolution

A pair of articles defining evolution has been added to the Creation Club website. Understanding the terminology of the opposing side can help discussions and debates.

Delineating Evolution, the Theory of Evolution, and Evolutionism

Within the Creation and Evolution debate, many discussions turn chaotic because individuals do not understand the differences between the generic use of evolution, the scientific Theory of Evolution, and the philosophical beliefs of Evolutionism. Quite often (usually by accident but sometimes intentionally), these concepts are mixed together in various ways which produces logical fallacies, what is known as a ‘strawman argument’, or lengthy attempts to prove a fruitless point. By properly defining each of these terms, hopefully discussions can move forward and with more peace.

Microevolution and Macroevolution

One of the most misunderstood concepts within the Creation and Evolution debate is how microevolution, macroevolution, and variation within a Kind compare to one another. The frequent use, and misuse, of these terms by supporters of either view calls for closer examination.
