What came First: The Ape or the Man?

Welcome back to my blog. I have decided to do something a little bit different and very exciting today. We are going to do something like a pop-quiz/poll. Here's how it's going to work: I'm going to ask a few questions and you can put the answer you believe is the right one in a comment. Then next week I will give you the answer. Alright? Hello? Oh, sorry, I forgot that you can't answer like that because this thing isn't live. (That was meant to be a joke, you can laugh) So here are the questions of the week:
  1. True or False: Dinosaurs went on Noah's Ark. If true, how did Noah get the mighty beasts on?
  2. True or False: Dinosaur fossils formed millions of years ago
  3. What came first: The man or the ape?
  4. True or False: Science (including dinosaurs) and the Bible just don't mix
So next week I will reveal the answers to you.

A lot of stuff has been going on at Vassar Road Baptist Church. The "Family Fun Day" event that is to be held on August 4th, 2012 from 10 to 2 pm is coming along great. All the cool games, music and puppet shows are coming into order. My family and I will also be singing some songs for the event. We might even be able to have live music! That's cool! Best of all, this totally FREE event is going to be held either rain or shine. So prayerfully we'll have clear skies that Saturday.

The casting call for the Christmas play entitled "A Big Misunderstanding" is also still scheduled.

People often ask themselves why they are here on the earth. While there is lots of speculation about that, one   theory scientists have come up with really seems rather . . . "out of this world". Many evolutionary scientists believe we were placed here by higher intelligence in the form of . . . space aliens! Now that is just plain hogwash. Unfortunately for evolutionists, there is no evidence for intelligent alien life out there is space.

Most evolutionists are more "down-to-earth" when dealing with the matter of where we came from. They believe that the fossils have the answer to this riddle. After looking at the various fossil finds, they have concluded that human beings evolved from apes. Now what IS their "proof"? Well, one of these so-called "proofs" is a fossil skeleton from Eastern Africa. The skeleton is that of an ape called Australopithicus named "Lucy". Lucy is only about three feet tall and many scientists believe that she is the starting point of mankind, not because of her skin, which was hairy, or her brain which is only a third of the size of ours. Scientists believe that Lucy and her kin are the starting point of mankind because they walked upright like us. So maybe the reason why we are here on earth is to make apes look really cool!

No, of course not. That's too silly. When evolutionists declare humans evolved from apes, they often include the fact that ape DNA is around 99% similar to human DNA. Well, that must prove we're related to apes, right? No it doesn't. There are a lot of things with similarities but really have nothing to do with the other. For instance, a watermelon is 99% water, a jellyfish is 99% water and a cloud is also 99% water. Now do these things have anything to do with each other? No.

Besides, we don't even really know if Lucy and her relations walked upright anyway. If you will look at Lucy and her relative's hips, you will see that they are of a different shape than a human's and they would be uncomfortable walking upright like us. However, it does appear that Australopithicus did  have a more upright posture then many living apes. See this link for more information: "Did Lucy walk like us?".

So it turns out Lucy and her relations were just normal apes. Unlike what the evolutionists suggest, we are VERY different from the apes, and from ALL other creatures on earth actually. As the Bible describes in the  book of Genesis, chapter two, we learn that God made us in the image of Himself. This doesn't mean we look like God, but instead this means that we have many of His qualities. For instance, we have things that no animal has, like an eternal soul. When an animal dies, its soul dies with it. But when a human dies, our soul lives on. Now after we die, there is no place in-between Heaven and Hell. Both locations are very real. The Bible also says that we can choose which place we wish to go. To go to Heaven, we must accept that we are sinners (you will remember that the first man and woman brought sin into the world and that sin sort of like a genetic trait) and accept Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of our lives. Only YOU can make that choice. (If you wish to make that first step to Christ, please send me an email at

Wow, we sure went through a lot today! We took a quiz, got a briefing of what's happening at my church and we learned that humans are made in God's image and apes are made in the image of . . . well, apes!

The Weirdest Dinosaur You've Never Heard Of

Hello again! There is quite a lot happening at our church, Vassar Road Baptist Church. As I had said in previous posts, the soonest event is the Family Fun Day, being held at the church rain or shine from 10 to 2 on August 4th. It is all FREE and there will be a lot of fun things to do for all ages like face-painting, "fishing" games, beanbag throwing, bowling, eating (who doesn't love to eat?), live music, a bouncy house (if the weather permits), , and really cool puppet shows performed and written by yours truly. Of course, I won't be performing the puppet shows all by myself, we have a very exciting puppet ministry at church. If you are close enough to come, you should. It's going to be a whole lot of fun! (For dates and times you can ask me).

The other event is the casting call for the Christmas play, "A Big Misunderstanding". I have had a lot of people ask what a casting call is. Well, a casting call is when we all go to a certain location and say a few lines to see who will fit each part the best. The play will be a "follow-up story" to the play we produced a few years back and to my recently published book, The King on a Cross. If you are close enough to come, please do. Most roles are non-speaking.

You know, a lot of people have no clue how many dinosaurs are discovered each year. As a matter of fact, on an average basis, a new species is found ever six to seven weeks. Of course, most people don't hear of these "new dinosaurs". Most people really only know of a few:

  • Tyrannosaurus rex
  • Triceratops
  • Brontosaurus (which is now an incorrect name)
  • Velociraptor
  • Brachiosaurus
  • Stegosaurus
  • Pterodactyl (which is not a dinosaur since dinosaurs are only land animals)
So what is the "weirdest dinosaur you've never heard of"? Well, it is also one of the most recently discovered dinosaurs (I think you'll agree that it's one of the weirdest). It's called Concavenator (Con-cave-en-aa-tore). Concavenator was discovered in 2010. This is one of the weirdest of all dinosaurs because God created these guys with a hump! I'm surprised it wasn't named Camelosaurus.

Concavenator is a relation to the more famous Allosaurus. Scientists are unsure of the use of its hump, but they speculate it was used either for display (attracting mates and deterring rivals) or to store energy like a camel does in its hump. Like all animals when originally created, Concavenator would have eaten plants. After the Fall, when the first people brought sin and death into the world however, Concavenator would have probably eaten a lot of shellfish, fish, and whatever it could find along the seashore.

As you can see, I really enjoy dinosaurs, but I like modern animals a lot too, and Lord Willing in the future I will right a lot of books about them.

So that's the latest scoop! Be sure to check back in often for more. Bye for now!

24 Hour Days or Millions of years?

Hello again, a lot of stuff is happening at our church. The summer event is coming up pretty soon. We have decided to keep the name "Family Fun Day" for the event's title. This is a FREE event to be held on Saturday, August 4, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. There will be food, puppet skits, music, and games. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, we will have face-painting too. My sister is helping out with that, along with another girl from church. Come join us for a time filled with fun. .

The Christmas event we are having, a play called "A Big Misunderstanding". Casting call is on Saturday, August 11, 2012 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Vassar Road Baptist Church.  Roles are for speaking and non-speaking parts.The production is on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at New Beginnings Church. The time is T.B.A.

To clear up any misunderstandings that may come up about the books I am working on, I'll tell you a little fact: even though my next book is (Lord willing) going to be about dinosaurs, that is not all I write about. Believe me, I have a LOT of other books I am working on, various subject matters, both nonfiction and fiction. I also am working on other Kim and Zoey books, so be on the look out. Check out my most recently published book, The King on a Cross.

One of my favorite subjects in the Bible is the account of Creation. I know great deal about the subject. I have heard a lot of hot debates about the days God took to wonderfully create everything. Some people believe that the six days of creation were literally 24 hour days, while others (mostly those "progressive creationists") believe that the word "day" in this case means millions and billions of years. Progressive creationists believe that God created everything through evolution over millions and millions and millions and millions of years. While I could blabber on and on about how evolution is merely mythology, I will stick to the topic of how long the creation days were. Now, it is true that some words have many meanings, and the word day is one of them. Take this paragraph for instance:

The old man said, "Now back in my day, it took two days to get across that desert during the heat of the day."

There are three separate meanings of the word "day" in that one sentence! The first one meanings the time when the old man in the sentence was young. The second one is referring to 24 hour days. The third one is talking about the time of day.

You should probably know that in the original Hebrew text of Genesis, the word for "day" is "Yom" (not to be confused with the similar English word pronounced as "YUM"). Now the Hebrew word yom always means a 24 hour day when its used with the words "evening", "morning", or with a number. And that's exactly the way Genesis uses the word! So the Creation week is made up of 24 hour days, not millions of years! Besides, if some people think that the Creation week is made up of millions of years, then why not think that Jonah stayed in the belly of the big fish for millions of years? Or that Joshua and the Israelites walked around Jericho for millions of years? Why don't any of us question those? Easy: THEY DON'T MAKE SENSE!

(When Knuckle-Heads talk about Genesis):

So as you can see, not only am I capable of giving evidence that the Bible is to be taken literally, but also I am capable of writing books on the subject of creation, which Lord willing, I will be doing very soon.

That's the latest scoop on things happening around here, be sure to check back soon. Goodbye!

Great Turn Outs await . . . Lord Willing!

Nothing new is happening with the book(s) yet, however the evangelism activities are turning out to be very productive. The summer event, which we haven't named yet, is scheduled for the August 4th, 2012. A planning meeting will be taking place pretty soon. The fall event, "Trunk-or-Treat" (we might change the name of that too) is scheduled for October 30th, the night of Harvest Day. The winter event, the play called "A Big Misunderstanding", is taking place on the 8th of December, but casting call will take place at Vassar Road Baptist Church on August 11th from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. Originally it was set for the 14th of this month, but most of the youth from some neighboring churches will be gone during that time. If you are close enough to come help and wish to participate, please come on over. We need all the help we can get. (Any questions you have can either be posted as a comment or you can send it to my email:

By the way, 2012's VBS went very well at my church. The curriculum was LifeWay's Amazing Wonders Aviation. It was a blast!!! What's different about this VBS from the other ones I've heard about, is that it isn't only for the young ones. There is something for everyone between the ages of preschoolers to 191. Most VBS's I've heard of only go up to 6th grade.

Thanks for taking the time to read, please check back soon for the latest news!
