Soil microbiologist: Evolution no help in research
Don Batten interviews Professor ‘Skip’ Skipper
Horace D. Skipper is Professor Emeritus, Soil Microbiology, College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences, Clemson University, South Carolina, USA. He has a B.S. from North Carolina State University, M.S. from Oregon State University and a Ph.D. from Oregon State. His main field of research and teaching concerns microbes that benefit plant growth. He was also honoured to be elected President of Clemson University’s Faculty Senate.
Dr ‘Skip’ Skipper
I met Dr Skipper when I spoke at the Creation Study Group meeting in Greenville SC last year. Dr Skipper’s research includes the role of beneficial soil organisms in plant growth and also the degradation of pollutants and pesticides.1
Skip got saved at the age of 30 when he turned away from his sins and recognized that Jesus died on his behalf to take the punishment he deserved. He recognizes that he could not earn this salvation; it is undeserved. He says, “There is no way I can work hard enough or be good enough to merit eternal life.” He totally accepts the Bible’s teaching on Jesus’ supernatural conception, resurrection, ascension, as well as creation in six days, the global Flood of Noah’s day, etc. Dr Skipper sees no conflict between believing the Bible and his scientific research and knowledge.
Skip became particularly interested in the creation-evolution debate in the early 1990s after hearing Dr D. James Kennedy (Coral Ridge Ministries) on a DVD, where he showed the link between abortion and other social issues and evolutionary dogma. Dr Skipper is active with the Creation Study Group2 in Greenville SC.

Looking for Origins in All the Wrong Places – Creation Revolution.
Looking for Origins in All the Wrong Places
Virtually all major branches of science were founded by men and women seeking to understand God’s creation. They didn’t question the origin of the universe or of life because they already had the answer before them in God’s Word. As in the days of old man started to turn away from God and worship the creation more than the Creator.
With the advent of the theory of evolution many more have turned from the Creator to the creation. Now they no longer have the knowledge of the creation of the universe and of life and they seek to find answers in places that will not give them answers. Most have turned to look at some form of primordial mud puddle which somehow miraculously produced the first living cell. They look at molecules and form proteins, enzymes, acids, bases, and organic compounds to be the progenitors of life. They kneel before the periodic table and pray that it will give up its secrets, to no avail.
Realizing that none of their theories of how all these chemicals and compounds could come together to create a living cell will work, a pair scientists from Arizona State University are suggesting they look in another direction. Paul Davies and a Sara Walker suggest that trying to understand the right chemical makeup for the origin of life is not sufficient. They believe that it is also necessary to try to understand how chemical information organizes itself into the life creating processes.
Walker describes the process much like the workings of a computer that needs both hardware and software programming, saying:
When we describe biological processes we typically use informational narratives – cells send out signals, developmental programs are run, coded instructions are read, genomic data are transmitted between generations and so forth. So identifying life’s origin in the way information is processed and managed can open up new avenues for research.

I think that fractals some of the most interesting structures that exist. And they exist in the distant parts of the heavens, and down to the smallest structures that exists. I do not see how anyone can look at fractals and deny God. To think that such organization can come from the chaos of accidental creation defies belief. The very fact that such perfect structure is the base for such amazing things as the universe itself and flowers, plants of all kinds, seashells and sea creatures of all kinds, and so many other things shows that it is an established pattern and a pattern by it’s very nature implies a creator. God bless and enjoy!!!!
One of the most amazing things about creation is the arrogance of man who thinks that it simply happens by chance!!!!!

It Matters In Whom Or In What You Believe…
My husband (thanks honey!) sent me this hilarious explanation of Atheism via email today. Apparently, it has been making the rounds on Face Book.
I plan to add some commentary to this post at a later time, but thought that I would immediately share it here at Talk Wisdom so that readers can see the ridiculous nature of man’s concept regarding the religion (after all…it is a belief…isn’t it?) known as Atheism.
Update: Sometimes it pays to wait to complete a blog post. Note the two drastically different comments already posted.
Even better, see Protein Wisdom’s
In case you missed my previous post, please see The Christian Concept Of Servant Hood
where there is an interesting discussion going on in the comment section. This current post is actually a continuation of what my friend Steve said there:
“I think GM’s comment was well thought out and typical of someone who has a problem accepting the thought that there is something smarter and much more powerful than men, but that’s understandable.”
The atheism description above reiterate’s Steve’s point that atheists/agnostics/skeptics often have “a problem accepting the thought that there is something smarter and much more powerful than men.”

The beauty and wonder of God‘s handiwork surrounds in all it’s splendor! We see it in the mathematics of creation, in the blueprint of our own DNA and the structure of every single thing that exist on earth and throughout the universe.There are many who would rather assume that all things came together by accident and that is their choice. God forces no one to believe in Him, but those that would so willingly and blindly ignore the abundance of evidence around them are sad in a way. In denying God, they limit themselves to the smallness of their existence and erase any hope of taking part in the wonder of God’s majesty and wholeness of His promise. Each of the videos I am presenting below show us the majesty of God and the wonders that we are still finding to this day. The very last video is one that I think should impress even the skeptical who have an answer for everything. The Bible tells us that God knows the number of sands on the earth, and it seems as if He has many more ways to record that information than we even suspected. God bless and enjoy!
Psalm 8 God’s Glory and Man’s Dominion
O LORD, our Lord,
How excellent is your name in all the earth,
You who set Your glory above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of babes and infants
You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and avenge the avenger.
When I consider Your heavens, the
work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which you
What is man that You are mindful of
And the son of man that You visit
For You have made him a little lower
than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory
You have made him to have dominion
over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet.
All sheep and oxen—
Even the beast of the field,
The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord
How excellent is Your name in all the
