From all these observations, we discern most plainly the incomprehensible perfection, the exact order, and the inscrutable providential care with which the most wise Creator and Lord of the Universe had formed the bodies of these animalcules, which are so minute as to escape our sight, to the end that different species of them may be preserved in existence. — Antony van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), father of microbiology
I attended a public school in KS where evolution was taught. I have rejected evolution but have not always known the answers to some of the questions.... A friend told me about your site and I like it, I have it on my favorites, and I check it every day. — an auto technician in Missouri
The origin of the universe is a mystery for science, surely for the present one. It is a disturbing mystery ... The same applies to the origin of life and of Homo sapiens .... The concept of God .... helps us to make decisions in the right direction. We should be very different, I fear, if we did not have that concept. — E.P. Wigner, Nobel Prize for Physics (Princeton University)
Wernher von Braun is important in this series because he was recent enough to be in the living memory of many, and we have a great deal of documentation, photographs and motion pictures of him. Even young people (that is, anyone born after 1972) who did not live through the glory days of Apollo are all familiar with three of von Braun’s last great projects he took from vision to reality: the Space Shuttle, orbiting space stations and interplanetary travel. Unquestionably, he had a great deal of help. One does not do rocket science alone! At the height of the Apollo program, some 600,000 employees were involved in tasks from machining parts to managing large flight operations centers. Yet by wide consensus and by results achieved, Wernher von Braun was a giant among giants: highly regarded by his peers, respected by all who worked with him, a celebrity to the public, showered with honors, and unquestionably responsible for much of the success of the space program. Few have ever personally taken a dream of epic proportions to reality. The peaceful exploration of space! It was the stuff of dreams — dreams by Kepler, Jules Verne, science fiction novels and countless childhood imaginations, yet today it is almost too commonplace. Von Braun dreamed, but made it happen. He was the right man with the right stuff at the right time.
Let’s get our facts straight: It’s not Christians who are promoting the most absurd conspiracy theory of all.
At best, psychology doesn’t know what it’s doing. At worst, it harms people.
In that day man will have regard for his Maker, and his eyes will look to the Holy One of Israel. He will not have regard for the altars, the work of his hands, nor will he look to that which his fingers have made. — Isaiah 17:7-8
