Pruitt's EPA resignation stirs lament, reflectionWASHINGTON (BP) -- Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt's resignation Thursday (July 5) amid federal investigations of his spending and management prompted his pastor to lament the "present ugliness" of political attacks and note the high ethical standards to which Christians are held.
Pruitt -- a deacon at First Baptist Church in Broken Arrow, Okla., and until early 2017 a trustee of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary -- wrote in his resignation letter to President Trump that he believes "providence brought me into your service," adding, "I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the American people," according to a copy of the letter tweeted by a New York Times reporter.

Ancient DNA said to support Bible's Babel accountTANANA, 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
'Genesis: Paradise Lost' docudrama back 1 final nightPENSACOLA, Fla. (BP) -- A docudrama defending the Genesis 1 creation story is back in theaters one final night Dec. 11, producer Eric Hovind has announced.
