Iran? Russia? and maybe China? What is happening to our world?

The news is getting scary. You have probably heard that people in Iran are demonstrating against their government, and things are getting violent. The news, where I live, is that an army base has been attacked. In Russia, there are other problems. We know about the Russian army attacking Ukraine, a close neighbor. It’s now a complicated story, and the Government of Russia is bringing compulsory military service, to keep their effort going. Apparently, people in Russia are not happy about this, and they are demonstrating in the streets. Russia is the largest country in the world in terms of landmass. In China, things seem to be more peaceful, and there doesn’t seem to be a violent crisis. COVID lock-downs are still happening, but young adults are not getting married and having babies, and the population is declining. A younger generation of new adults is distracted by the stress of living, in their country. This may seem trivial, but over time, a smaller population will mean a smaller economy, and that will be a smaller …

Did the Russian president publicly threaten nuclear war?

With Putin’s invasion starting to falter as Ukraine launched a successful counter-attack against the invaders, Russia’s now desperate leader, Vladimir Putin, has publicly threatened to use tactical nuclear weapons, the Daily Mail reports. Putin made the announcement in a public statement to the Russian people on Wednesday where he also ordered a partial mobilization for the hugely unpopular war. The Daily Mail adds that if Putin were to do this, there were indications that the Americans would respond with attacks on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. There were no threats of America or NATO using nuclear weapons in the counter-attacks. The Daily Mail writes: His comments come after the Russian premier sent shockwaves around the world, as he announced the ‘partial mobilization’ of his reserve military forces to continue his murderous invasion of Ukraine.  And in a chilling warning directed squarely at Western and Nato leaders, desperate despot Putin insisted he would use ‘all means’ necessary to defend swathes of territory seized or set to be annexed by Kremlin forces before threatening to use nuclear weapons.  …

The significance of five ‘unblemished’ red heifers that were delivered to Israel

Recent news about the arrival of five ‘unblemished’ red heifers at Tel Aviv’s International Airport in Israel has caused quite a stir among those who study end-times prophecy. The red heifers were sent from Texas and were previously inspected by Jewish Rabbis to confirm that they were unblemished. What is interesting is that Evangelical Christians helped in the procurement of the cattle. The Mosaic Law required an unblemished red heifer to be sacrificed for the sins of Israel outlined in Numbers 19. It involved one of the most key sacrifices associated with the Temple. And according to a Christian website, theIsraelguys.com, the arrival of the red heifers is important prophetically because it paves the way for building the third temple in Jerusalem: “According to rabbis and leaders in the Orthodox community, these heifers could be used to reinstate many of the practices of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, even before the 3rd Temple is rebuilt. “[…] “At the welcoming ceremony, the small group witnessed the unloading of the heifers, recited blessings of thanksgiving, sang and …

Has the World Economic Forum infiltrated Canada’s cabinet?

Started by Klaus Schwab in 2017, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is a group of self-proclaimed (see video below), economic, academic and political elitists who believe they know what is best for the world. They are globalists at heart and want to basically tell the world’s serfs how they must live their lives. Recently, Breitbart’s editor-in-chief, Alex Marlow, reported on comments made by WEF’s Executive Chairman, Klaus Schwab, in 2017 allegedly bragging about how his elitist organization influenced Vladimir Putin and as well infiltrated Canada’s cabinet. Breitbart writes: The World Economic Forum, based in Switzerland, “openly claim they’re trying to influence governments. Unelected people, small town of elites in Switzerland, openly advocating to influence governments, Western governments in particular,” Marlow said. “They don’t have any representation of populism,” he continued. “They don’t have any representation of nationalism on their board. It is all the same globalist mindset.” Marlow added that “they’re grooming a younger generation of globalist talent. They’re focused on cultivating this next generation, and they’ve proven that they’re quite good at this.” The editor-in-chief …

When Gorbachev was the Antichrist

By Dr. Michael L. Brown

Are you old enough to remember when Christians thought that Mikhail Gorbachev was the antichrist? After all, he was the whiz kid who came out of nowhere and was shaking the Soviet Union. Perhaps he also aspired to take over the world? And then he had that mark on his forehead. Some said it looked like a dragon! Could he be the man?

Massive 7.6 earthquake hits Papua New Guinea

In his vision of the end-times, the Apostle John saw several massive earthquakes striking the earth, but John described one in Revelation 16 that would be the greatest earthquake to ever hit the world. And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty. (Revelation 16:18 NASV) In fact, of the 16 earthquakes mentioned in the Bible, seven of them are found in the Book of Revelation, so it seems they will become a theme of the end times. On Sunday, Sept 11, 2022, a large earthquake, with a magnitude of 7.6, hit the Pacific island of Papua New Guinea. There has been substantial damage reported from the quake and five deaths, which is expected to climb. Major buildings and homes suffered extensive damage, and roads now have cracks running down them. People felt the shocks 480 kms away, including those living in Australia. …

Creation or Evolution? What are the fossils telling us?

Brasilodon: That sounds like the name for something old, like a fossil. Scientists recently analyzed fossil teeth from an ancient lizard skeleton, that was excavated in Brazil. In geological time, this little lizard lived when the first dinosaurs appeared, about 225 million years ago. The geological era is known as the Early Triassic, not long after the Permian-Triassic mass extinction event, which seemed to allow the dinosaurs to dominate the Earth. According to scientists, that event was the greatest mass extinction ever. The estimate is that more than 70% of land animals and more than 90% of the species in the oceans, died out. The analysis of the tooth from a fossil Brasilodon showed something interesting. That little animal was not a lizard, it was a mammal. It is described as “shrew-like” which means it was the size and shape of a rat. So, why does this matter? This information is Earth-shattering. One little animal, that looked like a rat, could change our understanding of where life came from. Darwin would struggle to explain this …

Disney-owned network releases disturbing satanic cartoon show

Parents and faith groups are expressing concerns about the release of a disturbing animated film, entitled “Little Demon”, by a network owned by Disney, FXX, CBN reports. Perhaps even more concerning than its name is the actual premise of this show. CBN provides more of the show’s details: “Little Demon,” a new animated show about a woman who mates with Satan and produces the Antichrist, is raising eyebrows and making cultural waves. But amid the cacophony of frustrated retorts to the show — which airs on the Disney-owned network FXX and stars Danny DeVito as Satan — faith leaders and media experts are sounding some consequential theological and practical alarms for parents and children alike. CBN adds this description of the show provided by the network: “Thirteen years after being impregnated by Satan, a reluctant mother, Laura, and her Antichrist daughter, Chrissy, attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul,” reads the show’s description. Though FXX’s target audience is …

Extraordinary find confirms the Bible’s smallest details

What I like about Biblical archaeology is how it consistently confirms some of the smallest, seemingly irrelevant details, mentioned in Scripture. In 1 Kings 10, we have a bit of an idea of King Solomon’s wealth gained through tribute paid by subdued nations and as well taxation of those doing business in his realm (1 Kings 10:14-15). One of the displays of Solomon’s wealth is found in a description of the king’s great throne, which is described as being “covered with ivory and overlaid with fine gold” (1 Kings 10:18-20). It also had a huge rounded back, and appeared to have a full-sized lion on either side of the throne. There were also six massive steps going down to the palace floor, with a lion on both ends of each step (12 in total). But in the midst of this grandiose description, the first thing the writer noted is that Solomon’s throne was decorated with ivory, and it is mentioned before the gold and lions. This is not surprising because ivory was considered more valuable …

How we pray for our political leaders is important

In some ways, an archaeological discovery in Israel may provide a timely message for believers in our dangerously-polarized, political culture. In 2010, archaeologists found a stone table (26.7 cm by 20.8 cm) near the Gihon Springs in the Kidron Valley with an inscription carved into it. The springs were originally the main source of water for the ancient city of Jerusalem. The limestone tablet was dated to the time of King David. However, it was not until 2022, that Professor Gershon Galil, from the Department of Jewish History and Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa, completed his translation of the wording. According to Israel365 News, it ended up being a curse, calling for the death of the Governor of Jerusalem: Transliteration and translation of the text: ARWR, ARWR, MT TMT; ARWR, ARWR, MT TMT; SR H’R, MT TMT; ARWR, MT TMT; ARWR, MT TMT; ARWR, MT TMT. ארור, ארור, מת תמת; ארור, ארור, מת תמת; שר הער, מת תמת; ארור, מת תמת; ארור, מת תמת; ארור, מת תמת Cursed, Cursed, you will surely die. …

WEF’s elitists want your child microchipped

The World Economic Forum (WEF), founded by German economist Klaus Schwab, is made up of financial and political elitists who gather to decide what is best for the world. The organization is now calling for parents to microchip their children, the Daily Caller reports. The Daily Caller explains: The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) latest dystopian nightmare is here, and it’s being spun as a “superpower” aimed at helping children. The WEF is always looking forward when it comes to human development (instead of fixing current problems) and focusing on augmented realities as a very real part of our future, according to their its guest article from WEF contributor and Vice President of R&D at IMEC Kathleen Philips. The next natural step to detach from reality as God made it, proposed by Philips? Microchipping ourselves and our children, apparently.

When the Holy Spirit falls upon people: Ex-gay Hollywood designer explains how this helped lead him to Jesus

We read throughout the Bible of times that the Holy Spirit fell upon people and each time something unusual happened as there were outward manifestations: As we move into the New Testament, there is a shift because of Christ’s perfect redemption the Holy Spirit is now able to permanently reside inside us (1 Corinthians 6:19). But there were still instances of the Holy Spirit falling upon people, as took place on the Day of Pentecost. The same thing happened to a group of gentiles at the home of Cornelius as Peter was preaching. The Holy Spirit also fell on them, and they began speaking in tongues: 15 As I [Peter] began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as on us at the beginning. (Acts 11:15 ESV). When the Holy Spirit falls upon people, something invariably happens, and a similar event laid the groundwork for Becket Cook, a Hollywood designer, to become a Christian, Faithwire reports. Becket was an influential designer in Hollywood, and had worked for major stars such as Oprah, Paris Hilton …

The EU to introduce a digital ID system in 2023, and critics warn it’s a ‘Trojan horse’ for tyranny

Criticism is mounting over plans by the European Union to implement a digital identity program by the fall of 2023, CBN reports. According to the EU’s ‘official’ propaganda, the phone app will function as a digital wallet which allows people “to store and exchange documents and legal information, while fully controlling which data we want to share with whom.” Of course, as many point out, there are apps that already do this, so why would the government want to duplicate this service? And the critics are concerned that the government will use the app for nefarious purposes to track and control its citizens. Cristian Terhes, who was elected to the European Parliament, grew up under communism in Romania, and he has been a very vocal critic of the plan: “Clearly we are witnessing right now, the ‘Chinafication’ of Europe,” said Terhes, “because we see what is happening in China right now with the social credit score, where the government is monitoring. … All the people from the beginning to end, everything that they do, everywhere …

Mob loots 7-11 store in LA

With woke LA County DA George Gascon, recently celebrating a failed attempt to recall him because of his soft-on-crime approach, a group of an estimated 100 people joined the celebration by looting a 7-11 store in Los Angeles. The Daily Mail provides more details: The gang of people ransacked the store while shouting, completely destroying the COVID-19 safety screen that had been set up to grab as much as they could in Los Angeles, California. A group entered the convenience store near Figueroa Street and El Segundo Boulevard, with surveillance footage showing the looters shouting at each other, on August 15. They can be seen running across the store and grabbing drinks, cigarettes, lottery tickets, bags of chips and other items. According to the Los Angeles Police Department the suspects also started throwing items at them, with around 100 people involved in the chaos. Ironically, an LAPD detective commented, ‘We really want to prevent this from becoming a new trend.’ READ: Shocking moment mob of looters RANSACK and destroy 7-Eleven store in Democrat-led LA, leaving …

Does an ancient mosaic point to Peter’s home in Bethsaida?

Archaeologists, Prof. Steven Notley from New York’s Nyack College and Prof. Mordechai Aviam of Israel’s Kinneret College believe they have found an ancient Byzantine church located in Bethsaida said to built over the home of the Apostle Peter. The Bible tells us that Peter, Andrew, and Philip were from Bethsaida (John 1:44). It was also the town that Jesus condemned because of its refusal to repent after all the miracles that had been performed there (Matthew 11:20-25). The site, referred to as El-Araj, is located on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee. The archaeologists, who had previously found the remains of an ancient Byzantine church, announced that they recently discovered a round Mosaic medallion that was part of a larger mosaic floor in the church’s sacristy. This is the room where those leading the church service gathered to prepare. The medallion contained two lines of Greek script, which refers to the donor, “Constantine, the servant of Christ,” and a petition to Peter who is called, “chief and commander of the heavenly apostles.” This …

Babylon Bee’s Seth Dillon warns that ‘truth’ is under attack

Seth Dillon is the CEO of the Babylon Bee, a popular website that publishes satirical stories on current news events. Dillon is also a Christian and this past week spoke at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, Virginia, where he warned that truth is under attack across America. The Christian Post reports. “We’re living in crazy times, unusually crazy times, actually outrageous times where absurdity is everywhere,” Dillon began. “Truth is under attack. Reason is under attack.” “Comedy is under attack. And you can’t speak up and try to defend any of these things, or they try to suppress your voice and silence you. Freedom of speech is under attack.”   Dillon said the world is “increasingly becoming more and more difficult” for Christians to speak “the truth boldly in the public square.”  READ: Babylon Bee CEO tells megachurch the ‘truth is under attack’ in America Fact-checking satire Though the Babylon Bee is satirical, Snopes, a left-wing website, actually fact-checked one of the Bee‘s articles, where it satirically wrote that CNN had purchased two massive industrial washing machines …

Camels on the Horizon? The Eve of Destruction?

You might have heard about the camels on the horizon. Lots of people are talking about it. The story is; that a Sheik in Dubai in the Persian Gulf region gave his opinion, in an interview, and his words of wisdom have caught the attention of people around the world. In summary: Hard times make resilient people, and those people fix social problems and make a better society. That easier life produces soft and whiny people, and they make things worse. It’s a cycle of repair and decay. Prosperity and good times, lead us to decay and destruction. People who like this message generally think we are in the soft and whiny stage, and destruction is near. Apparently, many Christian preachers are interested in the message. The Sheik of Dubai is like a wise prophet, to some people. Social cycles are normal, and predictable. And if that is true, we may be at the end of a prosperity peak. We may be on the eve of destruction. What do you think? I’m a Christian, and …

Did Baal show up at the Commonwealth Games?

In his vision of the end times, the Apostle John saw a time coming when the people would openly worship the beast, which of course is none other than Satan, the god of this world. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear. (Revelation 13:8-9 NIV) It is difficult to imagine how the world could be so deceived, that humanity would be enticed into worshiping this false god. But a bizarre thing happened at the Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham, England in August 2022. As part of the opening ceremonies, a massive (six-story high) bull with flashing red eyes and smoke pouring out of its nostrils was dragged into the main arena. As strange as that was, this wasn’t even the bizarre part. When the mechanical bull entered the arena, a woman walked in front of it, to calm it down. After this happened, dancers …

Scientists call for a ‘new’ theory of evolution

We have been brainwashed for over a century by the theory of evolution, that life sprung out of some primordial soup as single-celled bacteria in an instant became breathing, living and consuming. Humans subsequently evolved from this single cell through a series of small changes. But it seems that some scientists are finally admitting that Darwin’s theory just doesn’t work. Don’t kid yourself, they haven’t suddenly become believers in God, though some have, they are simply calling for a new theory of evolution, because this old one does not explain the absolute complexity of life. In his article entitled, Do we need a new theory of evolution?, for the British newspaper, The Guardian, Stephen Buranyi writes that a “new wave of scientists argues that mainstream evolutionary theory needs an urgent overhaul. Their opponents have dismissed them as misguided careerists – and the conflict may determine the future of biology.” In his article, Buranyi writes that for generations we were told that creatures with poor eyesight, had offspring with slightly better eyesight, and because they thrived, …

Uncivilized

By Rick Renner

The material I am about to present concerns a subject that I normally wouldn’t write about. However, it provides a powerful illustration of the depravity Paul prophesied would occur during the last days (see 2 Timothy 3:2,3), and I believe it serves as a wakeup call to the Church. Sometimes we need a stark reminder of the rapid degeneration of society’s moral fabric that is occurring all around us at an ever-increasing rate so we don’t grow complacent and just “go with the flow” of society’s downward moral spiral. As the Church, we have a vital role to play in these perilous times as standard bearers of truth. So bear with me as I take on that role to share some disturbing but important information, and you will understand my point.

Do Egyptian transliterations confirm the Exodus account?

In the speech that led to his martyrdom, Stephen stated that Moses was educated in all the wisdom of Egypt (Acts 7:22). This is to be expected, since the Bible records that he was raised in the Pharaoh’s court, where he would not only learn the ways of Egypt, but as well its language. But we also know that his Hebrew mother basically served as his nanny during his early years (Exodus 2:7–9). So, Moses would also be familiar with the Hebrew culture and religion, and perhaps even the Hebrew language. It is also generally believed that Moses was the author of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, as we find several references of Moses writing down events as they took place. 14 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven.” (Exodus 7:14 NIV) 4 Moses then wrote down everything the LORD had said. …

What Does the Bible Say About the End of the Age?

By Dr. Michael L. Brown Let’s be brutally honest here. It would be arrogant and foolish to imagine that, in one short article, any of us could make a definitive statement about the Bible and the end times. After all, these issues have been debated for hundreds, if not thousands of years, and the debate continues to rage until this day. Plus, what Bible are we talking about? And what do we mean by the end of the age? Let’s answer those questions first. When talking about “the Bible,” I’ll be referring to the version of the Bible shared by the largest number of people, namely, the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament. Judaism accepts only the Hebrew Scriptures (called the Old Testament by Christians) as the Bible. And Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians accept the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Apocrypha as sacred Scripture. But all Christians agree on the Old and New Testament as being Scripture, so for simplicity’s sake, when we speak …

‘Without an excuse’: How God’s creation created doubts in atheists, causing them to become Christians

While we watch atheists becoming emboldened in recent years in their attacks on Christianity, it can cause us to question our faith. But a verse in Romans has always puzzled me: 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[a] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20 ESV) People can have all the excuses they want on judgement day on why they didn’t believe in God, but in the end, the Apostle Paul states that everyone will be without excuse because of God’s creation. But I think this verse is suggesting more than just that, because it also means that the Holy Spirit uses creation to create secret doubts in the minds of those who claim to be atheists. And along this line, God Reports had testimonies on how two atheists became Christians because of their study of science. Mariah Jones confronted by God in second-year science classes The first story involves Mariah Jones, a …

Jesus predicted increased lawlessness

When Jesus warned that people’s hearts will grow cold because of increased lawlessness in the end times (Matthew 24:12), I never once thought it would be due to politics. I was wrong. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is running to be governor of the state of New York. He was campaigning in Perinton, New York on Thursday night (July 21, 2022) when a 43-year-old man, David G. Jakubonis, allegedly jumped on the stage and tried to thrust a sharp weapon at Zeldon’s neck. Fortunately, Jakubonis was immediately tackled and arrested. But here is the lawlessness kicker. According to reports, the accused, who the police charged with second-degree attempted assault, was released the next morning on his own recognizance, The Blaze reports. Some have alleged that the accused may have mental health issues. Politics is producing lawlessness. Guard your heart.

Why is Ezekiel 38 trending on Twitter?

Twitter exploded after photos emerged of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s meeting with Iran’s Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday, July 19, 2022. It was Putin’s first international visit since his invasion of Ukraine, and it was unmistakable that Putin was showing the world that he still has allies. Also in attendance was Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is trying to broker a deal that would end Russia’s blockade of Ukraine’s ports, allowing needed grain shipments to leave. But it left Turkey looking like a Putin ally as well. However, the meeting also caught the attention of those studying Biblical end times events because it could be a precursor to fulfilling an infamous end times war, also called Armageddon, where several nations attacking Israel. This included Gog and Magog, Persia, Cush and Gomer, described in Ezekiel 38. Persia, of course, fits modern Iran, but there have been a few questions on who Gog and Magog described since it seems to be the major player in this war. Gog is the leader of this …

Man killed over windshield fluid splatter?

The New York Post reports that the father of two children died in a road rage incident, after being shot by someone driving a BMW. Dennis Anderson and his partner Brandy Goldsbury were driving along a coastal road in Oregon, when Dennis sprayed windshield fluid to clean his car window. A BMW was passing at the time, and it seems that some fluid may have spattered on the passing vehicle. The outraged driver of the BMW sped ahead, but a few miles later the passing couple saw the vehicle parked in a rest area. After Anderson and his partner passed, the BMW allegedly pulled out behind and began harassing their vehicle, trying to force it off the road. When Anderson finally pulled over to call 911, the BMW pulled up beside and its occupant opened fire, killing Anderson. Kind of reminds me of the Apostle Paul’s description of the last days leading to Christ’s return:  But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of …

Reckless

By Rick Renner

Many years ago, Denise and I took our sons to Rome for a study tour of the ancient world with a special emphasis on early Christian history. As we stood inside the great Roman Coliseum, we listened as our doctoral guide spoke to us at length about the barbarism and atrocities that were so loved and cheered by the Roman citizens who packed that great stadium nearly 2,000 years ago.

A couple characteristics of the end times

In 2 Timothy 3:1-5, the Apostle Paul talks about the changes that will take place in people as we enter the difficult last days. He says that, among other things, they will become “ungrateful” or unthankful. Connecticut police state that they have arrested a man who allegedly pulled a gun on two women when they failed to say thank you after he opened the door for them at a store, the New York Post reports. The man immediately fled after pulling out the gun but was later picked up by police. It is uncertain why the two women failed to express what would be considered a small courtesy, but the man certainly overreacted to the situation. The Apostle Paul also added that people in the end times would be “without love,” “unforgiving”, and “without self-control.” READ: Connecticut man pulls gun on women who didn’t thank him for holding door, cops say

Ten stories from this week

Here are a ten news stories, that caught my attention, this past week. Prophetic word about draft, fulfilled in the very last pick in 2021 NFL draft Grant Stuard was an all-conference linebacker while playing for the University of Houston. His dad was in prison several times and his drug-addict mother worked strip clubs to feed her habit, leaving Grant to raise his four siblings. There had been hints he would be drafted in the 2021 NFL draft, and a friend even gave a prophetic word, that this would happen. But Grant was losing hope by the time the seventh and final round of the draft started. But Grant was picked by the NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the very last pick of the draft.

Hints of the digital age in end times prophecy

As we read of the Biblical end times, we see hints scattered through the prophecies of the modern digital age we are living in today. When the angel of the Lord delivered a prophetic message to Daniel about the end times, God’s messenger said these prophecies would be sealed until the end of the age that would be marked by a rapid increase in knowledge: 4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:4 ESV) Even Sir Isaac Newton, a 17th century scientist who studied the end times prophecies, suggested that there would need to be an increase in technology to fulfill the events he saw taking place in the end times. One example include the death of the two prophets of God, who had tormented the world, in the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John’s vision of end-times events. John saw that when the beast killed the two prophets, people from every tribe and …

Evolution: Do we have to believe?

We all know Charles Darwin, but have you heard about Darwin’s doubts? Apparently, Charles Darwin, with his theory of evolution, expected scientists to find evidence that proved his theory. He did not know how some parts of evolution occurred, but he expected the evidence to be found. Now, we have skeptics, who want to change Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Darwin lived and worked during the 1800s when religion was important and powerful. His famous book “On the Origin of Species” was published in 1859, and the world has never been the same. Religious people don’t like a theory that claims life is an accident, with no God to create it. Atheists see Darwin’s theory as settled or established science, and as proof that they are correct. For them, God did not create life, and they believe there is no God. It all fits for them. For believers, Darwin is a problem. Settled or established science means we really can’t question the ideas; they are accepted as facts by reputable scientists. I used to work in …
