A water molecule contains two hydrogen atoms, each of which is bonded by a polar covalent bond to an oxygen atom, in a near tetrahedral arrangement with the two lone electron pairs of the oxygen atom. Therefore, the H-O-H bond angle is about 107°. This polarity causes the intermolecular attraction known as hydrogen-bonding, and allows [...]
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. The Scriptures teach us that God is a Trinity—He is three persons, but one God. I explained this concept in detail, and how the doctrine is reflected in Genesis, in the first chapter of my book, No Time for Itching Ears. There are a number [...]
About one third of all state-funded primary schools in England are so-called “Faith Schools”. Such schools are sponsored by faith-based organizations, which would be mostly Church of England, Roman Catholic, Methodist, and Jewish, with a small number of Muslim or Evangelical institutions. Atheists in Britain object to these schools. The British Humanist Association is currently [...]
Dr. Alice Roberts is Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University of Birmingham. That’s Birmingham, England. This is a post similar to that once held at the University of Oxford by fundamentalist atheist Richard Dawkins. Like Dawkins, the chair appears to have been specially created for her, as Roberts has for a number [...]

This is especially true when something can [...]
Genesis is important, because it is at the foundation of every major Christian doctrine. Paul Taylor explains this point, and expands it at length in his book, No Time for Itching Ears.
The Giant’s Causeway on the coast of Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom is a geological feature with World Heritage Status. The unusual basalt columns are said by secular geologists to have formed over millions of years. Creationist explanations of its formation make much more sense.
