creation.com/media-center/series/article-cast
Creation.com’s goal is to support the church at large in proclaiming the Truth of the Bible and thus its Gospel message. We provide real-world answers to the most asked questions in the vital area of origins laid out in the Book of Genesis, where the Bible is most under attack today. That’s why we deliver this podcast. It’s important that people on-the-go learn what God’s Word has to say, and the arguments that creationists use to rely on the authority of Scripture and make sense of secular science claims.


Created to Fly!
Dec 9 • 14 min
It is clear that there is one overall reason why birds have always been able to fly, and why man’s attempts have taken off only with the invention of flying planes. What is it? The birds got off to a flying start at the time of their creation. Flight,…
Christmas - Why?
Dec 5 • 15 min
As we enjoy all the good things about Christmas, we also need to remember that the ‘reason for the season’ is that Jesus came to Earth to be born, to live, and to die for the sins of the world, and then to rise again to give new life to all who put their…
Life Imprisonment for ‘Feeble-Mindedness’?
Dec 2 • 7 min
The story of the ‘Kallikak’ family supposedly went back to an ancestor code-named ‘Martin Kallikak’, who as a young man had a relationship with a “feebleminded barmaid” that resulted in the birth of Martin Jr. Later, Martin married a “worthy Puritan…
The Breath of Life
Nov 28 • 14 min
The respiratory system has many distinctive design features, which show forth the providence of God. Even as we study it scientifically, the knowledge we gain should generate continual thanksgiving, so that we might join the psalmist in praising God along…
Multiverse No Help for Evolution
Nov 25 • 9 min
Even if other universes could exist, and even if the laws of physics and chemistry in every single other universe did permit abiogenesis, this would do nothing to explain the existence of life in this universe. Do evolutionists really think that the…
We Are Less Than Dust
Nov 21 • 11 min
We are made up of 99.99999999% empty space, so how can humans, or anything else, be ‘seen’ or ‘felt’? When we see something, what we are detecting is the light (an electromagnetic wave) reflecting from the surface of the object. By Dr Robert Carter…
As Silent as a Flying Owl
Nov 18 • 5 min
Owl feather features have caught the attention of researchers in the dramatically-expanding field of biomimetics or bio-inspiration, whereby engineers copy biological design. By David Catchpoole Originally published March, 2018 Helpful resources By Design…
Secular Scientists Blast the Big Bang
Nov 14 • 13 min
The price of succumbing to the lure of secular acceptability, at least in physics and astronomy, has been heavy. We have long warned that adopting the big bang into Christian thought is like bringing the wooden horse within the walls of Troy. The Enemy of…
Hibernation, Migration and the Ark
Nov 11 • 14 min
The pygmy possum is an ‘opportunistic non-seasonal hibernator’. Their average prolonged hibernation lasts 310 days, with one of creatures reaching 367 days. It’s worth exploring just how this does or does not add to the apologetic arguments about the…
The Relentless Dragon
Nov 7 • 9 min
Why trying to avoid the topic of evolution won’t work. Komodo Dragons have been known to follow wounded prey at a leisurely pace for weeks. It is only a matter of time before the creature collapses, too weak to fight, and is often eaten alive. Similarly…
Unnatural Selection (CRISPR on Netflix)
Nov 4 • 23 min
The possibility of altering human genetics to create designer babies or to improve the human species has been in the realm of science fiction for decades. Well, the ‘future is here’. In October of 2019, Netflix released the first season of a new…
Why Were the Reformers Burned?
Oct 31 • 11 min
The Reformers saw the doctrine of Transubstantion as heresy. But we have seen that the same charge applies to the doctrine of Theistic Evolution. We could well ask ourselves, as biblical creationists, the question: given similar circumstances as prevailed…
Dramatic Dinosaur Footprints at Karoola Station, Australia
Oct 28 • 9 min
The remarkable dinosaur footprints discovered at Karoola Station in outback Queensland, Australia, provide dramatic evidence of the reality of Noah’s Flood. Further, they provide insight into the nature of the catastrophe and its effect on the animal life…
God Created With Functional Maturity
Oct 24 • 15 min
There is an errant concept of ‘creation with apparent age’. A hypothetical modern observer who travelled back in time to see Adam and Eve at the end of Day 6 might infer that they were 20-year-old adults, but in reality they were less than a day old.…
A Detective’s Approach
Oct 21 • 12 min
There are several things we can learn from detectives like Colombo that we can apply to the enterprise of Christian apologetics in general, and creation apologetics in particular. The next time you’re in a discussion or debate with a skeptic, ask them The…
Isaac Watts: A Poet in Awe of His Creator
Oct 17 • 18 min
Before the use of hymnbooks in the 18th century, the main form of musical involvement by English congregations was to intone paraphrases of the Psalms. One Sunday, Isaac Watts opined that the way the Psalms were rendered lacked the dignity and beauty that…
An Overview of the Denisovan Puzzle
Oct 14 • 22 min
The Denisovans are a fascinating subject. It is known from ancient DNA studies that the Denisovans interbred with ‘modern’ humans, and so by the biological species concept that makes them the same species, i.e., Homo sapiens. Hence, by logic the specimens…
Liligers: A Testimony to the Created Kind
Oct 10 • 8 min
Liligers, ligers, and other cat hybrids are testimony to the fact that all 39 extant cat species alive today (including the domestic house cat) likely came from one original feline/cat kind on board the Ark, which rapidly diversified soon after the Flood.…
Genesis: The Missing Piece of the Puzzle
Oct 7 • 19 min
With so many areas for the church to deal with we need to ask ourselves, how do we make a difference? Where do we focus our efforts? Many Christians believe the creation/evolution issue to be a side issue, an unprofitable area on which to focus. To many…
Secular Researchers Agree: Worldviews Control Science!
Oct 3 • 8 min
In an encouraging turn of events, a secular peer-reviewed paper published in eLIFE, written by a team from the NMBU Centre for Applied Philosophy of Science at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, backs up this understanding of the importance of…
‘Watch a glasswing passing’ & ‘Nature’s self-cleaning marvels’
Sep 30 • 9 min
In today’s episode I’m going to read not one but two articles about butterflies. Glasswing butterflies have large clear patches on their wings. Many would claim they ‘evolved’ transparent wings (to minimize their visibility to predators). Christians might…
Homeschool Conference: Great Encouragement and Some Concerns
Sep 26 • 13 min
We had a discussion with Tim Barnett from Stand to Reason, who was giving multiple presentations at the Great Homeschool Conference in Greenville, South Carolina. It turned out that Tim believes in an old Earth, implying that death, disease, suffering and…
Did God Create Life on Other Planets?
Sep 23 • 18 min
Those who believe life evolved on the earth usually see it as virtual ‘fact’ that life has evolved on countless other planets. Many Christians think, ‘God must have created life elsewhere, otherwise this enormous universe would be an awful waste of…
Deconstructing Darwin: Darwin’s Real Message
Sep 19 • 17 min
The myth of the ‘kindly slow-witted naturalist stumbling across evolution’ was fostered by an autobiography Darwin wrote as a deliberately self-effacing moral homily for his children, not intending it to be published. Darwin was fully aware that his idea…
Where was Eden?
Sep 16 • 13 min
Nothing on today’s Earth matches the geographical clues provided in Genesis. Any proposed location for Eden must include four rivers originating from one source. Contrary to common opinion, the Tigris and Euphrates of Genesis 2 cannot be the modern rivers…

Translating Creation
Aug 22 • 8 min
I sometimes wonder how the Apostle Paul would have enjoyed (and used) the Internet had it been available to him in the 1st Century AD. God has His tools for each phase of His program, and now we are in the 21st Century with this truly astonishing means at…
Time—No Friend of Evolution
Aug 19 • 10 min
The observable changes that evolutionists cite as evidence for their paradigm, such as in sticklebacks, bighorn sheep, Atlantic cod, pollution-resistant worms, and antibiotic and pesticide resistance, are all going the wrong way. They’re the direct…
Peacock ‘eyes’ that hypnotize
Aug 15 • 4 min
When the peacock vibrates his tail, it seems those ‘eyes’ can hypnotize the one he is trying to woo. But how can the eyespots stay relatively still when the whole tail is shaken vigorously? Scanning electron microscopy revealed that the eyespot feather…
Dolphin sonar (still) far better than man’s
Jul 25 • 6 min
Dolphins generate their sound beam with ‘phonic lips’ below the blowhole, one low pitched and the other higher pitched, producing a beam with overlapping pulses. Dr Starkhammar attributes this to “millions of years of evolution”. A better explanation…
The large ships of antiquity
Jul 22 • 9 min
Noah’s Ark has never failed to be the target of skeptics and the butt of many jokes. ‘Everyone knows’, for instance, that you cannot build a boat as large as Noah did from wood, even using today’s advanced technology. Just because we cannot duplicate…
Submission to Scripture—The Key to Understanding Our Worth
Jul 18 • 6 min
When facing difficult questions, do we respond by asking God or searching His Word? Or do we think we know best? Such self-idolatry reaches as far back as the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6). Instead, we should seek to understand how God’s Word addresses our…
Design: just a trick of the mind?
Jul 15 • 13 min
Life looks like it was designed. Even Richard Dawkins admits it: “Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose.” Skeptic Michael Shermer has developed specific terminology for this, such as…
The Birds of the Galápagos
Jul 11 • 12 min
The birds on the Galápagos Islands show an amazing adaptation to their environment, and provide excellent examples of the ability of animals to adapt to changing conditions. But are any of these variations examples of evolution? And how does the biblical…
Fossils in a day?
Jul 8 • 7 min
To experimentally mimic the fossilization process, taphonomists have undertaken what they call maturation experiments. Three scientists decided on what they called a ‘novel’ approach. Current surface processes of erosion and deposition of sediments cannot…
The Fall: A ‘Glorious Necessity’?!
Jul 4 • 14 min

It was the foundational account of the Creation (which New Testament writers attribute to Jesus (e.g. John 1:1–3; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:2), the subsequent Fall of Adam, with the entrance of sin and death into the human race, which explains the reason…
Newly Discovered Medusavirus Turns Evolutionary Theory to Stone
Jun 20 • 9 min
A novel ‘giant virus’ has recently been discovered in a Japanese hot spring. Medusavirus as it is called has several very interesting genetic features. It is still a question as to what Medusavirus is exactly. All we know is that we have a new species of…
The sloth—slowest mammal on Earth

Secular biologists, who claim that the common ancestor of today’s two sloth genera lived 35–40 million years ago, admit the evolutionary history of the two living sloth groups is not well known. Interestingly, though, they believe that despite the…
God’s DNA-detangling motors
Jun 13 • 12 min
The topoisomerase enzymes Even the simplest living creatures need topoisomerases before they can read their DNA instructions to make proteins or pass them on to their offspring. These are complex, well designed machines that cut, move, then reconnect the…
Feathered dinosaurs
Jun 10 • 10 min
Unlike evolutionists who have an incentive to prove that dinosaurs evolved into birds, creationists have no problems with God creating dinosaurs with feathers. We just do not believe the evidence currently leads us towards such a conclusion. Besides,…
Scriptural Originalism
Jun 6 • 10 min

Our Young Solar System
May 30 • 11 min
Accepted theories of evolutionary science say our Earth and our solar system formed about 4.6 billion years ago. On the other hand, the Bible implies Earth is only several thousand years old. Biblically, the Earth and the universe are roughly 6,000 years…

The Bible and Interracial Marriage

Over-engineered odour detectors
Apr 25 • 5 min
Over-engineering in nature is a problem for evolution. The problem for defenders of evolution, according to their own theory, is that an organism will possess only the attributes it needs to survive. But there are numerous examples already known of…
Why did Jesus die?
Apr 25 • 11 min
The creation-versus-evolution debate is often fought on scientific grounds, but what about the impact of the creation account on the topic of Christology and, especially, Jesus’ death? Why did Jesus die, and what is the biblical sacrificial system? Show…
Whale explodes fossil theory
Apr 25 • 8 min
We don’t find animals being rapidly buried in the oceans today. Well-preserved fossils point to catastrophe—to sudden death and burial before the animal was scavenged, scattered and obliterated. Well-preserved fossils are consistent with the unusual…
