Save Time Googling: with RSR's Multiple Creation Site Search!

Welcome to Real Science Radio: Co-hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams talk about science to debunk evolution and to show the evidence for the creator God including from biology, genetics, geology, history, paleontology, archaeology, astronomy, philosophy, cosmology, math, and physics. (For example, mutations will give you bad legs long before you'd get good wings.) We get to debate Darwinists and atheists like Lawrence Krauss, AronRa, and Eugenie Scott. We easily take potshots from popular evolutionists like PZ Myers, Phil Plait, and Jerry Coyne. The RSR Archive contains our popular List Shows! And we interview the outstanding scientists who dare to challenge today's accepted creed that nothing created everything.

RSR & Nathan from Georgia on Creation and Evolution

Mahoney's Patterns of Evidence: Moses ControversyGet Tickets! The Moses sequel to Patterns of Evidence hits theaters nationwide March 14, 16, & 19! So RSR urges you to watch the trailer and get tickets early, for yourself and friends, because if it packs theaters like Patterns did, it may sell out at many of the 900 screens where it's showing!

After last week's Part 1, Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart concludes his enjoyable conversation with listener Nathan, who has great questions about creation and evolution. And in case you've missed RSR's flood video...

14-year-old Nathan from Georgia calls RSR

Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart has an enjoyable conversation with a young listener, Nathan, who has plenty of questions about animals and the claims of evolutionists. The conclusion aired the next week.

"Being too open minded closes your mind to finding truth." -Nathan Walsh

What did one plant say to the other plant?

Real Science Radio presents the ability of plants to communicate by wire and wirelessly. Bob Enyart and Fred Willians celebrate the discoveries described by Dr. Jeffrey P. Tomkins, of the Institute of Creation Research, about how plants communicate, and why that ability could not originate without a Designer.

RSR: The Star of Bethlehem

* Boulder, Colorado's Planetarium Show on Christ's Birth: For Christmas Eve, we're enjoying this Real Science Radio rerun about the University of Colorado's Fiske Planetarium presentation of a live program, The Astronomical Star of Bethlehem, by amateur astronomer Gil Buller. From the planetarium's website, "This exciting program examines the sky at the time of the birth of Christ to see which astronomical phenomenon may have been the Star of Bethlehem."

Dr. Silvia on the Tall el-Hammam Destruction Event

Archaeologist Dr. Phil Silvia at Tall el-Hammam
Dr. Phil Silvia

What destroyed the Bronze Age city of Tall el-Hammam? As currently estimated, this happened 3,700 years ago. A popular hypothesis by archaeologist Phillip Silvia (as reported by space.com, sciencenews.com, livescience.com, newsweek.com, forbes.com, universetoday.com, etc.) suggests that a meteoroid's aerial explosion may have destroyed this ancient city just east of the northern shore of the Dead Sea, a possible site for the biblical city of Sodom. Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart interviews Dr. Silvia about his talk at last month's annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research in Denver. Hear about the obliteration of everything above ground in the city, the intense heat, the five-century abandonment of the area despite being the most well watered in the region, and the Dead Sea salts that were blasted up onto and over the outskirts of the city.

RSR on the Day-Age and Gap Theories

* RSR's Lists of 24-Hour Indicators, and Gap Theory & Day Age Consequences: Below, see our list of Indicators of the 24-Hour Creation Days. Below that, Bob Enyart and Fred Williams, discuss the Gap Theory claim that the Bible indicates that a long period of time passed between the first two verses of Genesis. There they list the unexpected consequences that typically go along with acceptance of that alleged gap. They also briefly list the unexpected consequences of the Day Age Theory. The claim that the creation days were long periods of time has implications that are not always immediately obvious to those considering that position. (See that list immediately below this paragraph.) So, what isn't always presented upfront is that as supporters of the Gap or Day-Age theories try to maintain old-earth creation views, they then must rearrange the order of those days (since their theory requires the existence of the Sun before Day 4; etc.). Gap theorists also tend to reject that there were no thorns before Adam's sin, Noah's global flood, etc. Christian denominations, universities, and other organizations that adopt the Day-Age theory tend to reject all of that and even that the languages originated at Babel, and they tend to reject the Exodus, Jericho's supernatural fall, Joshua's conquest of Canaan, etc. For the vast majority of Christian groups that make what looks like just a small interpretative adjustment in Genesis 1, trying then to be consistent with that adjustment leads these Christian institutions to reject many seemingly unrelated and plain historical passages in Scripture. Further, accepting an old earth interpretation of the Bible appears to lead to disinterest in, and even outright rejection of, the many fascinating corroborating archaeological and scientific discoveries that affirm the Bible as God's Word.

* The Day-Age Theory Consequences: The initial presentation of Day-Age might seem reasonable, that the word "day" can mean a long age and so Genesis accommodates an old earth. What isn't always presented upfront however is that as supporters try to maintain the Day-Age theory, they not only lengthen the days but then also:
- must rearrange the order of those days (since their theory requires the existence of the Sun before the Earth; of birds after land animals, etc.)
- reject that there were no thorns before Adam (as Genesis states)
- reject that all was "very good" until sometime after Day Six
- reject that there was no death before Adam's fall (as the Bible states)
- reject the great ages that the antideluvians (like Methuselah) lived to
- reject the global flood (and all the evidence for it)
- reject that the languages originated at Babel
- reject the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah
- reject the Exodus (and all the evidence for it)
- reject Jericho's fall (and all the evidence for it)
- reject Joshua's conquest of Canaan
- reject Jesus' genealogy in Luke
- reject Jesus affirming Noah entering the Ark before the flood destroyed the rest of the world
- reject that God made us male and female as stated in Genesis and by Jesus
- reject Jesus' statement in Mark 10:6 that God made manking at the "beginning" of creation
- reject Hebrews 1:10 and Gen. 1:1 on God making the Earth at "the beginning" of creation
- reject that God instituted marriage in Eden between one man and one woman
- etc. (for ex., they even reject the 2018 evidence that Solomon indeed made the gates found in Israel)

* Indicators of the 24-Hour Creation Days; The above (like the Gap Theory observations below) is a list of the consequences that result from rejecting normal-length days of creation. A direct way of showing that these Genesis Days equaled 24 hours include observing that:
- On Day Four the sun and moon were to rule over the day and night, virtually mandating literal days 4, 5, and 6
- The Day Three plants needed the Sun of Day Four to survive therefore Day 3 could be hours but not years long
- Each of the six Days have ordinals 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc., which are typically used with literal and not figurative days
- Each of the six Days have evening and morning descriptions typically used with literal and not figurative days
- The 7th Day sabbath model is that God made the heavens, earth, and seas and everything in them in six days
- The purpose of Genesis carefully listing the ages of the patriarchs was for calculating the years since creation
- Jesus said that God created Man at the beginning of, that is, not not long after, creation (Mk. 10:6; etc.)
- Lucifer in the Garden of Eden hadn't yet fallen, no suffering or thorns yet till after "everthing was very good" on Day Six 

Case of Walt Brown's In the Beginning, 8 books for $100So it turns out that making a small adjustment in Genesis 1 and overlooking that "the evening and the morning" were the first day, the second day, etc., leads to extensive rejection of other plain historical passages of Scripture. Soon enough such compromise leads also to rejection of the Bible's teaching on gender and God making us male and female (Gen. 1), on sexual morality (Gen. 1, 9, Ex. 20, etc.), on marriage between a man and a woman (Gen. 2), and even the killing of the innocent (Gen. 4, 9, Ex. 20, etc.) through suicide, euthanasia, and abortion. What then, arises, with the adoption of the Gap Theory? Bob and Fred investigate (see below).

RSR Previews Next Week's Show on Gen 1:1-2

Programming Note: We've designated next week's program, rsr.org/gap-theory, as our main resource for that topic. So if you listen to today's program, please consider it a preview for next week's program. Thanks!

Bob Enyart and Fred Williams discuss the idea that the Bible indicates that a long period of time transpired between the first two verses of Genesis. The guys first give a quick overview of the competing Day-Age Theory and then discuss the implications of the Gap Theory.

* The Day-Age Theory Consequences: The initial presentation of Day-Age might seem reasonable, that the word "day" can mean a long age and so Genesis accommodates an old earth. What isn't always presented upfront however is that as supporters try to maintain the Day-Age theory, they not only lengthen the days but then also:
- must rearrange the order of those days (since their theory requires the existence of the Sun before the Earth; of birds after land animals, etc.)
- reject that there were no thorns before Adam (as Genesis states)
- reject that there was no death before Adam's fall (as the Bible states)
- reject the global flood (and all the evidence for it)
- reject that the languages originated at Babel
- reject the Exodus (and all the evidence for it)
- reject Jericho's fall (and all the evidence for it)
- reject Joshua's conquest of Canaan
- reject Jesus' statement that God made man at the beginning of creation
- etc.

So it turns out that making a small adjustment in Genesis 1 and overlooking that "the evening and the morning" were the first day, the second day, etc., leads to extensive rejection of other plain historical passages of scripture. What then, arises, with the adoption of the Gap Theory? Bob and Fred investigate (see below).

Fountains of MAGMA (?) of the Great Deep. Huh?

* First Shocking Thing First: Before getting to the sad shocker of today's program, that creation groups are reinterpreting the "fountains of the great deep" to refer not to water but to volcanoes (?!), hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams report actually shocking science news about how far a hundred watts of energy will take your brain (and body), about our ability to see a single photon, and about crocodiles eating fruit! Real Science Radio today also airs audio from infamous anti-creationist Eugenie Scott to put the lie to the Junk DNA story, once again, now that some human retrovirus genes have been found to be, not junk but, essential to reproduction! But the big story today is that our beloved creation movement is headed down yet another tragic and obvious dead end, this one designed to save the failed creationist version of the secular Plate Tectonics theory, by claiming that the fountains of the great deep that flooded the globe were not water... but magma??? Oh boy! Here we go again...

* RSR Programming Notes: At rsr.org/crossover-depth aerospace and defense industry engineer Bryan Nickel discusses four scientific problems with Catastrophic Plate Tectonics's "MAGMA (?) of the Great Deep" flood interpretation. See here RSR's YouTube video on the topic and please feel free to comment. Also, toward the end of this video, a notice points viewers to this page to see a second short video, the one embedded just below this first one

Meteorites with diamonds in them had to come from...

Case of Walt Brown's In the Beginning, 8 books for $100* Another WWB Discovery: RSR hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams discuss yet another WWB discovery, diamonds in meteorite fragments! While dismissing the popular notion of a large exploded planet to explain these diamonds (not enough solar system debris; gravity likes to keep planets together; Genesis reports a catastrophic event on Earth and not elsewhere), the guys explain how the fountains of the great deep launching debris into space beat up the moon and the rocky planets, explains meteoroids, populated the asteroid belt, and formed the comets and the TNOs. To understand all this better Bob and Fred recommend watching RSR's Global Flood and Hydroplate Theory video (or buying one to share) and reading Walt Brown's In the Beginning (or buying a case of eight as Christmas gifts for only $100 including shipping)!

* And More New Stuff: The guys also report on a newly discovered DNA structure and a newly discovered human organ!

Dust (Bunny) Satellites & The Sound of the (Grammar) Police

Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart presents the latest astronomy discovery of two dust satellites orbiting the earth and the latest linguistic discovery of the ongoing deterioration of all human languages. Regarding the dust, see the temporary dust clouds being held in space in Earth's Lagrange points! (See also rsr.org/peanut-asteroids!)

* Malibu Burning: There is a battle to save Pepperdine University from the devastating California fires. Please pray for those losing their homes and even, most tragically, their loved ones. Coincidentally, this is also where Bob gave what many have described as the best talk of his life. It's titled Trading Genesis. See it right here...
