Surtsey Proves that God did NOT Create the Earth

Surtsey is a volcanic island off the southern coast of Iceland. It was formed in a volcanic eruption which began 130 metres (426 ft) below sea level, and reached the surface on 14 November 1963. The eruption lasted until 5 June 1967, when the island reached its maximum size of 2.7 km (1.0 sq mi). Since then, wind and wave erosion have caused the island to steadily diminish in size.

Young Earth Creationism in the November Christadelphian Magazine

The Christadelphians are once again displaying their scientific ignorance; this time in an article by Nigel Bernard and Don Pearce published in the November 2013 Christadelphian magazine.

Entitled "Surtsey: a pattern for creation?" It recounts the story of the creation of the volcanic island of Surtsey in 1963 off the coast of Iceland in the North Atlantic. The authors say of this event:

"The rate at which geological features formed on the island provide some supporting evidence that the time scale of Genesis, with six days of creation followed by six thousand years of human activity, is not as unrealistic as is sometimes claimed."

Did Christianity (and other religions) promote the rise of science?

Written by Jerry Coyne

Of course most of you will answer “No way!”, and I do, too, but accommodationists and science-friendly believers make this argument often. Here are a few specimens:

Heritage College Birmingham Parents & Students Beware!

Rational Thinking Results in Atheism

It Ain't Necessarily So

Oppose Christadelphian Heritage College Birmingham

It is proposed to create a fund to oppose the creation of the Christadelphian Heritage College faith school in Birmingham UK.

The money will be used to lobby decision makers to advise them of the reasons for our opposition and also to place large advertisements in Birmingham newspapers warning parents and students of the Christadelphians' intention to "preach" to them and to their children at the school.

New 1.8 million year old human ancestor skulls found in Georgia - NOT Africa!

The discovery of a 1.8-million-year-old skull of a human ancestor buried under a medieval Georgian village offers new evidence that early man was a single species with a vast array of different looks, researchers have said.

Does inspiration mean the Bible must contain no mistakes?

It is interesting to read recently deconverted Christadelphian Rob Hyndman's blog and watch his growing disenchantment with Christadelphian teaching.

Why the Biological Evolution of Species is so difficult to comprehend

A reader has made the comment:

"Everything I've read (about Evolution) is theory. Too many unanswered questions. Like a male and female human are quite different, not just in body.
