“In the beginning” is a good start for a story. But is it an adequate way to understand life, the universe, and everything? Today’s guest on Home School Heartbeat joins host Mike Smith to explain why he says yes.
This week, our guest is Ken Ham, founder and president of Answers in Genesis. Ken, thanks for joining us!
Hey, great to be with you!
Ken, your ministry, Answers in Genesis, focuses on Christian apologetics, and particularly the Scriptural authority of the book of Genesis. This week, we want to consider how holding a high view of Scriptural authority and a biblical worldview will influence our perspective. Let’s start with science.
Well, since young people are so fascinated by dinosaurs and science, here’s how they’re explained by the Biblical worldview and what science can share. Today, dinosaurs are probably used more than anything to teach evolutionary ideas to children and teens. But, as we show inside our Creation Museum, they’re better explained by biblical history, not evolution. Dinosaurs were created on Day 6, along with people—not 65 million years ago.
But do we have evidence that dinosaurs lived in recent times? Well, yes. A T-rex bone has been found with soft tissue and blood cells; they can’t be millions of years old. Also, cave drawings and sculptures show that dinosaurs lived with people. Dinosaurs need to take their rightful place in history based upon the biblical world view and confirmed by real science.
Ken, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the impact of a biblical worldview this week! Thanks for joining us! And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
