    TANANA, Alaska (BP) -- Ancient human genetic material harvested in Alaska has been cited by two creation researchers as corroborating evidence of Scripture's claim humans migrated en masse from the Tower of Babel.

    A study published Jan. 3 in the journal Nature claims DNA extracted from the remains of an infant girl buried in central Alaska suggests an ancient migration of people from East Asia, across a frozen land bridge, to North America.

    After scientists extracted the DNA, they dated it to approximately 11,500 years ago, according to common evolutionary dating methods, and discovered commonalties between the harvested genome and the DNA of modern Native Americans. Researchers also found the ancient infant girl had ancestors in East Asia some 35,000 years ago according to evolutionary dating methods. Read More

    PENSACOLA, Fla. (BP) -- A docudrama defending the Genesis 1 creation story is back in theaters one final night Dec. 11, producer Eric Hovind has announced.

    "Genesis: Paradise Lost" will show creation unfold in 3-D animation that Hovind described as utilizing "cutting-edge cinematography, trusted creation science and biblical accuracy" in a Nov. 28 press release. A panel discussion including historians, researchers, scientists and Christian leaders is included in the production.

    "Over the past 150 years, we have seen an increasing attack on the idea that God created the heavens and the earth," said Hovind, president of the ministry Creation Today. "By focusing on creation and the science behind it, 'Genesis: Paradise Lost' will reinforce how the universe was intelligently designed by a divine Creator." Read More

    By the time he left the Ark Encounter theme park, he had also learned the story of Christ's atoning death on the cross for humanity's sins, Ark Encounter's chief executive Ken Ham told Baptist Press, underscoring the park's value as an evangelistic tool. Read More

    by Kevin D. Kennedy, posted Friday, June 03, 2016 (one year ago)

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- It's not wise to "start somewhere other than, 'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,'" R. Albert Mohler Jr. told 600-plus middle and high school students.
