Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible  AUSTRALIAN CHURCHES EXPECTING A CROWDED TURNOUTS FOR CHRISTMAS 23 December 2010 (Edited by DCB) This past Christmas churches in the state of New South Wales were planning extra services this Christmas to cope with the crowds. In fact Conservative estimates suggested more would …attend church over Christmas, in Sydney alone, than will attend the Boxing Day Cricket match in Melbourne. The President of the NSW Council of Churches said Many people think about going to church at Christmas and we want people to know that everyone is welcome. Believers, unbelievers, atheists, skeptics and people of all faiths are welcome to attend church this Christmas.  The denominations that comprise this group are the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, Baptist Union of NSW, Christian Reformed Churches of Australia, the Churches of Christ in NSW, Fellowship of Congregational Churches, NSW, Presbyterian Church of Australia (NSW), and the Salvation Army (Eastern Territory).  This is a mixed bag of doctrinal teaching if any is taught! AUTISTIC BOY RULED OK FOR SEX CHANGE December 29, 2010 (Edited by DCB) Believe it or not AN autistic schoolboy has been granted court approval to begin treatment to become a woman - on the proviso the teenager has his sperm frozen in case he wants to have children in the future. The culpable judge said was mature enough to know what he wanted.  Well what do you know, the boy may have this desire to be a girl because his …father had enjoyed dressing up as a girl when he was a teenager but the father said he grew out of it.  Of course The consensus among all the professionals was that he is capable of making, and has made, an informed decision.  Oh, the professionals! Undoubtedly this boy has a problem but Gods Word says in Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them and in Matthew 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female.  We live in a sin-cursed world and this young man needs to know that God makes no mistakes and this includes ones gender! WHAT WE'RE UP AGAINST (Edited by DCB) It probably doesnt come as any surprise to read that Omar Ahmad, co-founder of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, made his intent clear in a July 4, 1998 San Ramon Valley Herald article:  Islam isnt in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant.  The Quran should be the highest authority in America. The author of this article rightly concludes Political correctness can be annoying, frustrating, even exasperating. In the struggle against the threat of radical Islam, political correctness will literally kill us. SPAIN GOES ON MOSQUE-BUILDING SPREE 30 December, 2010 (Edited by DCB) Surprisingly The city of Barcelona, widely known as a European Mecca of anti-clerical postmodernism, has agreed to build an official mega-mosque with a capacity for thousands of Muslim worshipers. The new structure would rival the massive Islamic Cultural Center in Madrid, currently the biggest mosque in Spain. An official in the office of the Mayor of Barcelona says the objective is to increase the visibility of Muslims in Spain, as well as to promote the common values between Islam and Europe. A Moroccan imam has said …it is absolutely necessary to accept Islamic values as European values. He also says …Europeans should replace the term Judeo-Christian with term Islamo-Christian when describing Western Civilization. Political correctness (along with other things such as the lack of morality etc.) is the death knell of Western society and liberty as we have known it. SCIENTIST ALLEGES RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION IN KY December 17, 2010 (Edited by DCB) Astronomer Martin Gaskell believes that being an evolutionary skeptic and a Christian has …kept him from getting a prestigious job as the director of a new student observatory at the University of Kentucky. However, Gaskell says he is not a creationist but was passed over for the directors job because of his religion and statements that were perceived to be critical of the theory of evolution. Mr. Gaskell …also distances himself from Christians who believe the earth is a few thousand years old, saying their assertions are based on mostly very poor science. His attorney said Unfortunately too many people get hung up on the idea that you have to be one extreme or the other for They say you cant be a religious believer and somebody who accepts evolution, which is clearly not true. And Gaskells a perfect example of that. Interesting!

So what exactly does Mr. Gaskell believe concerning creation? The main controversy has been between people at the two extremes (young earth creationists and humanistic evolutionists). Creationists attack the science of evolutionists. I believe that this sort of attack is very bad both scientifically and theologically. The scientific explanations offered by creationists are mostly very poor science and I believe this sort of thing actually hinders some (many?) scientists becoming Christians. It is true that there are significant scientific problems in evolutionary theory (a good thing or else many biologists and geologists would be out of a job) and that these problems are bigger than is usually made out in introductory geology/biology courses, but the real problem with humanistic evolution is in the unwarranted atheistic assumptions and extrapolations. It is the latter that creationists should really be attacking (many books do, in fact, attack these unwarranted assumptions and extrapolations).  

Then at we read not surprisingly ...that Martin Gaskell's actual position on origins is probably closest to a theistic evolution position (Emphasis added by DCB) (he accepts common ancestry), with an openness to the possibility of intelligent design (ID). Gaskell's trial is scheduled to start in February, 2011.
