Professional, but not Perfect
Let me start first by saying that I began this blog as a journal of sorts, and never intended to become an A-list blogger like Tim Challies , LaShawn Barber or Michelle Malkin. I don’t hope to be the best referenced, best polished, most linked or best informed. Keeping a home, a husband, two children, a homeschool, and a cat keeps me from being a “Serious Blogger” through and through. I enjoy the blog (most days) and I don’t intend to give it up… but I do have a “day job”…. and although I love blogging, I love my “day job” better (not to mention, it’s much more rewarding).
Science Series Introduction
That being said, I wanted to write this as an introduction to my Science series on “Why I Believe in 6-Day Creation” so that I can explain UP FRONT where I’m coming from. I’m not a Scientist (my dad is – poor thing, but I’m not). I don’t mind commenting and responding after I post on this topic; however, I don’t intend to list references for every tiny bit of information I share (other than to say where I heard it)…. and I don’t intend to cast my pearls before swine and go in circles arguing fruitlessly, either. So, if you are wanting to argue points on my series, please be prepared to do your own legwork for the original sources, and be prepared to aim your questions at me tactfully. If you make ugly comments, they will be deleted promptly. If you attack anyone else in the comments section, your comments will also be deleted.
Most of the information that I’m going to provide in my “Why I Believe in 6-Day Creation” series will be coming directly from Kent Hovind’s Creation Seminar – Tape 1 – “Age of the Earth“. You can save yourself from reading my summarized notes if you just click my link herein and listen/watch the free video yourself (be prepared to sit there for a couple of hours at least, and the quality online is much reduced from the actual videos – text on the screen is near impossible to read). Kent Hovind puts his whole life into Creation research and lists references for each of his findings on the videos and in his notes which accompany the videos if you buy them. I highly suggest that you purchase, copy and distribute (he doesn’t copyright them) these seminars to whomever will watch them (especially if you are a Christian). They are wonderful. While I don’t agree with every single thing Kent Hovind says; and may not be perfectly aligned with all of his doctrinal stances, his science material is stellar. I hope you enjoy it.
Hard Hump Day
Today has been a really busy and rough day – the first full day back after our trip. Kaden has been having a sinus attack (sneezing and runny nose), and a math meltdown (said he thought I should have taken the Math with us on vacation because he’s getting “stuck” and seems to have forgotten some of it). We’ve cleaned off the book shelves, put our new books away that my friend Ammie gave us, and begun school again. I’ve done the checkbook, paid bills, called the library, checked the mail, gone through more than a week’s worth of mail, done our menu plan for the week, made out a grocery list, unpacked all the suitcases, put all the medicines away from our illnesses, checked email, gone through the paper for coupons, updated my dayplanner/calendar, and cooked lunch. I still have a huge list ahead of me (tonight is grocery night and I’m cooking falafels) and more school planning to get done for our last three weeks before “Summer Vacation” – the whole month of August. [It can’t come soon enough!]
I’m off to get back to my work, but wanted to let you know I haven’t forgotten about the series or the blog in general. I’m just buried at the moment!
