This Window of Our Lives

Pardon the pun, but I just had to say it! :D

We spent Friday out at our land (I shall call it "The Shire" from now on):

The house...













Random picture of meself! :)

The reason we were out there was NOT only that we were getting some sunshine, but we were installing our first window into the house. Now do you understand the reason for the title? :P

Before:

The boys helped Papa and Daddy put it in.


Josiah


Papa and Daniel

After:
 

Saturday, we put another window in, and now it's too cold to even go out! 0_o

Enjoy your week!

Of Chocolate and Hearts

For most girls, Valentines Day is a day when they get something special from their boyfriends and fiances. I have neither, but I wanted to wish you, my followers and faithful blog readers a very Happy Valentines day from One Light in a Dark World.




Don't eat too much chocolate!




Y'all have a gorgeous week!

There is a Book

There were a couple questions that Mr. Nye couldn't answer during the debate last Tuesday:

How did the atoms that created the Big Bang get there?
Bill's answer, "This is a great mystery....the universe is expanding, and you wanna know why?  Nobody knows why!"

Ken Ham's answer was a resounding "Bill...there is a book out there..."

How did consciousness come from matter?
Mr. Nye: "Don't know...this is a great mystery."
Ken Ham: "There is a book..."

When Mr. Ham said that, I was thinking, yeah! That's an awesome answer!
It was amazing! Later in an interview, he mentioned that he was praying at that point, while Nye was answering the question.  God gave him the words to say. 

Below is a link to the article that appeared on the AiG website the day after the debate.


And then there is Debunking Bill Nye's Arguments.

I would encourage y'all to check them both out!
  
Also, I always like to include photography/graphic design in my posts. :D




And then there is this one, which was written by me.

What did you think about the debate? Please comment!

Happy Monday!

The Mighty...


...Dinosaur


I Love Dinosaurs.  They are majestic creatures!  Not to mention their complete AWESOMENESS.  So here I go, back to Jurassic Park...sorta...
I wrote this article, research is from, where else? Answers in Genesis!

·       Are dinosaurs a mystery?
Dinosaurs are only a mystery if one accepts the evolutionary story of their history:
“Dinosaurs first evolved around 235 million years ago.  Way before man.  They were so successful as a group of animals, that they came to rule the earth.  However, about 65 million years ago, the dinosaurs disappeared.”  Many evolutionists believe that an asteroid killed them, or they died of indigestion.  Others think they aren’t extinct, but evolved into birds and are flying around us today.

·       When did dinosaurs live?
Evolutionists claim that they lived millions of years ago.  But we need to remember that the fossils that they dig up don’t come with a tag that says how old it is.  There is much evidence against millions of years.  God made T. Rex on day six, along with all the other land animals (and man).

·       How did dinosaurs fit on the ark?
When people think of dinosaurs, they normally think of large creatures that could never fit into Noah’s Ark (and when they think of Noah’s Ark, they think of a little tiny boat with animals crammed into it, and giraffes sticking out of the chimney).  But actually, the average size of a dinosaur is about the size of a sheep.  Besides, ALL dinosaurs were once small, because they all hatched out of an egg not much bigger than a football.

·       What did dinosaurs eat?
Originally, before sin, everyone on earth ate plants and vegetation as it says in Genesis 1:30: “and to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, which has life, I have given every green herb for food: and it was so.”  Some people object to this by pointing out the sharp teeth of T. Rex, saying that they must have been used for attacking animals.  But, just because an animal has sharp teeth doesn’t mean it ate meat. It just means that it has, well, sharp teeth!

·       Did dinosaurs evolve into birds?
At the entrance to the bird exhibit at the Cincinnati, Ohio zoo, we can find this sign:

“Dinosaurs went extinct millions of years ago - or did they?  No, birds essentially modern short-tailed feathered dinosaurs.”  In 1996, a fossil that was said to be a feathered dinosaur was discovered in China.  But further study on this creature, reveals that it had reptilian lungs and diaphragm, different than that of avian lungs.  Also, the “frayed edges” that some thought to be feathers, are similar to the collagen found beneath the skin of a sea snake.  No, dinosaurs did not evolve into birds.





Hope you have a jurassically awesome Monday!
