Fangalabolo Identification

Last week I was on the island of Madagascar doing night research concerning a nocturnal flying creature that the Malagasy island people call “Fangalabolo”. The local eye witnesses liken it to a very large bat with a wingspan over 5 feet. There is some disagreement in the zoological information regarding the largest bat in Madgascar. […]

Variation by Design

A number of advances in our understanding of the underlying genetic mechanisms of variation are challenging traditional darwinian understandings. Evolution is supposed to proceed by random variations that natural selection preserves because they confer a slight advantage. But increasingly, we are finding that variation is not random. The genetic mutations that modify the beak of […]

This next month we are planning an initial reconnaissance trip to look into the sightings of this nocturnal creature to determine if a full expedition might be warranted. Eye witnesses describe it as something […]

New Ogopogo Video

A new video recently surfaced purporting to show the Ogopogo monster that inhabits Lake Okanagan in British Columbia, Canada. It seems to display a long, slender body, some humps and even flippers coming up out of the water. The creature’s total length seems unrealistic. But how long is a sea serpent? We really don’t know […]

Voltaire – Part 2

Last month we considered the work of the famous skeptic Voltaire. His railings against Christianity and the Bible were tireless. In 1764 he wrote, “The Bible. That is what fools have written, what imbeciles commend, what rogues teach and young children are made to learn by heart.”  It is reliably reported that Voltaire once held up a […]

He became popular as a deistic writer (producing more than 2,000 books and pamphlets) and for his witty critique of Christianity.

On the 14th of this month Christians observe “Palm Sunday.” It is the day that we commemorate Jesus’ entry into the city of Jerusalem on a donkey. This event began the passion week in which Jesus publicly presented Himself as the Messiah, was arrested, was crucified upon Mount Calvary and finally rose from the dead […]

Fulfilled Prophecy – Part 6 “The Messiah”

Here are only a few key ones: His birthplace in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) His flight down to Egypt (Hosea 11:1) A messenger sent before to precede Him (Mal. 3:1) His ministry starting in […]

Fulfilled Prophecy – Part 5 “Ammon & Moab”

To the east of biblical Israel were three people groups that inhabited the land that is today Jordan. In the south was Edom, above it was Moab and to the north was Ammon. Last month we discussed prophecies regarding the children of Esau (Edomites). This time we turn our attention to the children of Lot, […]

Fulfilled Prophecy – Part 4 “Edom”

We considered the starkly different prophecies given to two Lebanese port cities. But the seers of the Old Testament also prophesied against a number of other cities and nations, foretelling a specific future judgment unique to each. Edom was a mountainous nation on the eastern border of Israel (modern Jordan). Their western border was in the Negev […]

Fulfilled Prophecy – Part 3 “Sidon”

Last month we considered Ezekiel’s prophecy about Tyre and the many specific predictions regarding the city’s demise that were remarkably fulfilled. Just a 40 minute drive up Lebanon’s Highway 51 from modern Tyre brings one to the slightly larger city of Saida, called Sidon in Bible times. Ezekiel’s Sidon prophecy stands in remarkable contrast to […]
