Photo from Answers in Genesis                   

Hi everyone!
How have you all been? I’ve been very busy as usual. I am working with my publisher on my novel. The last thing is to get the cover art and I just sent that in as a revised proof so hopefully all will look great and the book will get published in about one week. Yeah! The making of the book took such a long time and lots and lots of research. But one thing that I hadn’t discovered before is archaeoastronomy. What’s that you may ask? It is the aligning of architectures according to astronomical events or celestial objects. Did this really happen? The answer is yes…

The Pyramids of Giza:
Most scientists believe the three pyramids of Giza were aligned
with the constellation Orion and have internal shafts that point to various celestial bodies. “The geographical layout of the Giza complex captures the relationships between all the important astronomical planes, including the galactic plane. To those who would say that the ancient Egyptians did not know about the galactic plane, think again. The galactic plane is one of the most distinguishable features in the night sky: the Milky Way. The centre of the galaxy is located where the Milky Way is the thickest (at the juncture of Scorpio and Sagittarius). The causeways are laid at 23.5 degrees north of east, representing the relationship between the ecliptic and the celestial equator. It is here that the sun rises at the summer solstice. Using the obelisk that once stood before the paws of the sphinx as a pivotal point, further angular relationships associated with the lunar orbital plane, the ecliptic, the celestial equator, and the galactic plane are found. These relationships, as well as indicating the moon’s maximum and minimum declinations. In fact, the whole layout appears to be a reproduction of the intimate interaction between the Sun, Moon and earth in relationship to its place in the galaxy.”1

The City of Alexandria:
Was a Greek city built in Egypt to honor Alexander the Great. It was built around 332 B.C. by Alexander the Great and was the
City of Alexandria, Canopic road, taken early19th century. C. Pallini
capital of the Ptolemies (The final dynasty of Egypt). It is “…one massive display of ancient man’s ability in the area of archaeoastronomy. The layout of the entire city was designed to be in alignment with the sun of the birthday of Alexander the Great. This type of archaeoastronomy on such a grand scale is truly amazing.”2

“Constructed about 16 centuries before Christ, five trilithon/lintel (the upright stones [trilithons] capped with horizontal lintels [stones]) sets were placed in a horseshoe layout, the tallest set is in the middle of the five. The vertical gap in that set is bisected by a
line, the Summer Solstice sunrise alignment, through the heart of the circle and a remote marker known as the Heel Stone…Archaeoastronomers have long known about its heralding of the Summer Solstice. When sky conditions permit, the Sun can be seen rising through the vertical gap in the central trilithon/lintel set directly above the Heel Stone. Additionally, the 56 Aubrey Holes in a ring encircling the structure might have been an advanced, giant abacus for predicting lunar and solar eclipses. By advancing two different sets of markers daily and annually along the Aubrey Circle, Stonehenge's designers may have tracked solar/lunar recurrences with a known interval of approximately 18 and two-thirds years.”3  

Does some or all of this sound complicated? Yes it does! Even for me! Which just goes to show that our ancient ancestors were intelligent and knowledgeable and skillful. Beyond what we can even do today. That is because man has not evolved. Nor have the animals. We were all created as amazing beings. And our astonishing ancestors were actually more intelligent and skillful than us. We have not evolved, we have de-evolved. Only recently have we, as a people, been able to compare our skill level to that of the ancients. And a huge part of that is because humans have come together again sharing technology as one group…as it was in the days of Babel. “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” (Genesis 11:6) Remember Gods judgement for that…

Until next time,

Entire animal constructed from some teeth and bottom jaw fragments


Hi guys! What is going on with you all this week? Are you preparing/enjoying for the spring weather in the southern hemisphere or the winter weather in the northern hemisphere? My husband and I are preparing for cooler weather here in North America. Chopping wood, putting up window covers, raking leaves, turning off outside waters etc. One thing we don’t have to do, praise the Lord, is store up food. 

But not so for all the wild animals. Many of them do store up for the colder months. Some creatures actually store food in caches they make, others eat tremendous amounts of food and store it as fat within their bodies. Yet others somehow survive the cold winter months hunting for food. 

So what does this have to do with Bigfoot, Gigantiopithecus, Sasquatch, or the abominable snowman, you may ask? Well, let’s start with the abominable snowman…

The abominable snowman is also known as Yeti. It is listed in the Encyclopedia Britannica as a “mythical monster supposed to inhabit the Himalayan Mountains at about the level of the snow line. Though reports of actual sightings of such a creature are rare, certain mysterious markings in the snow have traditionally been attributed to it. Those not caused by lumps of snow or stones falling from higher regions and bouncing across the lower slopes have probably been produced by bears. At certain gaits bears place the hindfoot partly over the imprint of the forefoot, thus making a very large imprint that looks deceptively like an enormous
Supposed “Yeti” footprint on left, human footprint on right
human footprint positioned in the opposite direction.” But people still look for these supposed “animals”. Recently a team of Japanese climbers attempted to track down the Yeti. “Although the climbers spent more than 40 days on Dhaulagiri IV - a 7,661 metre (25,135-foot) peak where they say they have seen traces of yetis in the past - they could not furnish the press with a single photograph of the Yeti.”1 They did however photograph three tracks they claim are the Yeti’s. “In July Yeti hairs were supposedly found in north east India. Upon testing they turned out to belong to a species of Himalayan goat. In August, two men in the US claimed they had found the remains of a half-man-half-ape Bigfoot, which actually turned out to be a rubber gorilla suit.”2

“One of the most famous of the cryptids is North America’s “bigfoot” or “sasquatch.” These creatures are said to be a population of large, hairy, bipedal primates that inhabit the coniferous wilderness of the United States and Canada. They are thought to range in height from 6.6–9.8 feet and weigh over 500 pounds. They are reported to be extremely muscular and capable of using their ‘hands’ to twist saplings in two. Bigfoots are also believed to be nomadic, active mostly at night, largely solitary, and very shy.
While few in the scientific community give any credit to the existence of giant apes dwelling in North American forests, organizations such as the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization insist that Bigfoot is a real, living creature. This group, run by volunteers, adamantly claims that there is plenty of evidence for bigfoot in the form of hair, stool, footprints, and, of course, sightings. They argue that sightings of bigfoot are a historical phenomenon dating from indigenous peoples of North America until present day. These reported sightings are spread across North America with the majority occurring along the western coast. It is proposed that if Bigfoot is indeed a real—though highly elusive—creature, it is a type of ape.”3 

Which brings us to Gigantopithecus. “The literal 1,000-pound gorilla sitting in the corner of a natural history museum, the appropriately named Gigantopithecus was the largest ape that ever lived, not quite King Kong-sized but, at up to half a ton or so, much bigger than your average lowland gorilla. Or, at least, that's the way this prehistoric primate has been reconstructed; frustratingly, practically everything we know about Gigantopithecus is based on its scattered, fossilized teeth and jaws.”4

“Most scientists chalk bigfoot sightings up to misidentifications because of the hype or simply as hoaxes by sensationalists. It does seem highly unlikely that such a
Bigfoot hoax made CNN news. It turned out to be a halloween costume.
large creature could have managed to remain so elusive when so much effort has been spent over the last 50 years trying to prove its existence. But ultimately, if hard, irrevocable evidence of bigfoot were ever produced, would it be a problem for the biblical worldview? Of course not. “Bigfoot”—like any other animal—would just be another example of a unique creature that is well-designed for its environment.”5

Most if not all of these Bigfoot/Yeti/Gigantopthecus hunters have been influenced by evolution. Such indoctrination brings about the belief that there may be a half-ape/half-human creature running around out there. If indeed such a discovery did happen, it would not be half human-half ape (because animals can only reproduce after their own kind) but what was believed to be an extinct type of ape. “Such a discovery would be a big surprise to the evolutionary community but would not shock creationists. These creatures would simply showcase the glory of God’s creation and the incredible complexity that He has built into everything that He has made.”6

                                                                    ANIMAL KINDS
                                                                VIABLE OFFSPRING

Hi everyone! 
How are you all doing today? I am exhausted but doing well. My novel, Of One Tongue is at the publishers for (hopefully) the final review. I am anticipating it to come out by the end of the month! Yeah! So lots of last minute details to attend to, lol!

Thus this blog is going to be mostly pictures….but oh what fascinating pictures! I researched more into hybrid animals and here is what I found:

Beefalo; a cross between  a buffalo and domestic cattle. They are fertile and can produce viable offspring.

Zubrons; a cross between the European bison and domestic cattle. They can produce viable offspring.

The sheep-goat; These two animals are from different genuses. Yet they can produce viable offspring.

Wolf dog hybrids: These animals can easily produce viable offspring.

Dingo dog hybrids: These also easily produce offspring.

Fox dog hybrids: these also can produce viable offspring.

Ligers; A cross between a male lion and female tiger. Sometimes they can produce viable offspring.

Tigons: a cross between a male tiger and female lion. Can sometimes produce viable offspring.

Jungle cat/domestic cat hybrid. They can produce viable offspring.

Wild cat/domestic cat hybrid. Also can sometimes produce viable offspring.

Leapon: Leopard lion hybrid. Unknown if they produced viable offspring.

Cama: A cross between a camel and a llama. Artificially inseminated due to difference in size.

Wolphin: a cross between a false killer whale and a bottle nose dolphin. As you can see by the picture, they can produce viable offspring.

Narluga: A cross between a narwhal and beluga whale. Unknown if they can produce viable offspring. The Beluga whale is on the top left, narwhale on the top right. The narluga is on the bottom

Grolar bears: A cross between a Grizzly bear and a polar bear. They can produce viable offspring.

Sun/sloth bear hybrid.  Their fertility is unknown.

Why is it so important that I included whether or not the hybrids are fertile and can produce viable offspring? Because in evolutionary terms, that is what makes a species separate—when two animals cannot produce viable offspring. Many of these animals are considered separate species and even listed in separate genuses. A big problem for secular scientists. But is is not a problem at all for creation scientists. All of these animals’ ancestors were created with genetic diversity. And I hope that if you noticed nothing else, you have noticed that all of these hybrids are within their created Kind. “Through time the processes of natural selection, mutation, and other mechanisms have altered that original information (decreased or degenerated) to give us even more variation within a kind. Great variety can be observed in the offspring of animals of the same kind, just as the same cake recipe can be used to make many different cakes with various flavors and colors. Hybrids have a portion of the same genetic information as their parents but combined in a unique way to give a very unique looking animal. What an amazing diversity of life God has created for us to enjoy!”

Take care and God bless,

Halloween—An Evil Night?

How is everyone on this All Hallow’s eve (day)? What is All Hallow’s eve you may ask? Well, today it is known as Halloween but also has been known as All Saints Day. So with a title like All Saints Day is Halloween really an evil night? Well let’s look at how this holiday began and see…
It all started with the Celts several thousand years ago…You see these ancient people believed that one night in the year (halloween then called the Celtic festival of Samhain) “the dead and the deceased intermingled with the living world, transcending all boundaries of time and space. Hence, to avert the possible danger that these disembodied spirits might cause on the living world, the people would extinguish any form of fire in their homes, with the purpose of making them cold and unwanted. They would then adorn different types of ghoulish costumes and parade through the streets making loud noise and chaos.”1 This festival is sometimes known as the Celtic New Year. 
During medieval times, the church began to replace pagan celebrations with Christian ones; “Christmas replaced the Saturnalia festivals, and Samhain was replaced by All Souls’ Day on November 2, All Saints’ Day on November 1, and All Saint’s Eve on October 31. An old English word for holy (sanctified) is hallow, so October 31 was Hallows’
Hallow’s eve eventually became popular in ancient Rome which at one time ruled the known world. There it became more of a festival and bobbing for apples was invented. 
“Throughout the ages, the old pagan ways began to creep back into these “Christianized” festivals—and none more so than Halloween. Far from a celebration of Christian souls, it returned to its roots of summoning the dead. One ancient English tradition has families lighting candles in a sinister attempt to draw back the souls of dead relatives to the house. In Northern England, this was associated in the Middle Ages with the practice of Mischieving—from which the tradition of ‘trick-or-treating’ is derived. These mischiefs usually involved doing damage to property and blaming it on the spirits of the dead.”3 
As the Roman Empire declined and countries began to develop their boundaries, they took with them this ancient celebration. However as time marched on, the old pagan traditions reappeared. 
In Germany, a major part of their past is the famous spot for witches in the Harz Mountains. “In the 18th century, natives believed that the region was the hovering spot for witches who were initially worshipped as forest goddesses and priestesses and later were damned as evil creatures. For the local people of Germany, the festival of Halloween is blended with Walpurgisnacht (night of the witches).
“…The festival of Halloween is observed on the 31st of October every year, to honor the dead and deceased. It is believed that every year, at this time, the spirits rise from their grave and mingle with the living.
“In Italy, the festival is celebrated to honor the dead and deceased. It falls on 31st October and is celebrated throughout Italy. However, in the country, it is celebrated more as the All Souls Day or All Saints Day, rather than as a festival…every household arranges for a special cake called the Ossa dei Morti, which is baked in the shape of a bean…The people put the cake, which is popularly called the Beans of the Dead, on the top of their table. Each family member congregates at a feast, which is observed on All Souls Day, while preparing the cake. During the feast, a profuse meal is placed on every table. This ritual stands for their belief that the living and the departed souls of the near and dear ones come together to participate in the Feast.
“In Spain, Halloween is a three-day celebration, starting from 31st October every year. The first day is referred to as Halloween or Dia de las Brujas (Day of the Witches). This is also called Samhain or Noite dos Calacs (Night of the
Pumpkins) in the north-west region of Galicia. This is followed by the celebration of All Saints Day (Dia de Todos los Santos) on the 1st of November. Finally, on 2nd November, the natives observe the customs and rituals of All Souls Day (Da de Los Muertos). The three day celebration is together referred to as El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) and is widely observed by the natives of Spain, Latin America and also by the Latinos residing in different zones of United States and Canada…One custom that is peculiar only to this region is the consumption of a local drink made of herbs, called quemadas. The natives consider this to be the drink of their Celtic ancestors. The drink is infused with herbs and set aflame. This signifies the burning of bad luck and clearing the negative energies that dwell among the living during this time of the year. Apart from this, some villages even organize parades, where people dress in ghoulish costumes like skeletons & witches and dance in remembrance of their dead relatives.
“In the middle of the sixth century, even after the arrival of Christianity in UK, people continued to follow the ancient pagan rituals. The Fathers at the Church were worried over the growing supremacy of non-Christian festivals over the Christian holy days. Pope Gregory Is successor, Pope Boniface IV declared that May 13 will be observed as the All Saints Day. The pagans were extremely delighted to have this festival included in their calendar. But at the same time, they would not give up Samhain, the festival of the dead. However, Pope Gregory III was determined to eliminate Samhain and intentionally linked the Christian festival of All Saints Day to Samhain. Pope Gregory III declared November 1 as the All Saints Day, which later came to be known as All Hallows. Samhain came to be known as the All Hallows Eve or Halloween, owing to the fact that it falls the night before All Hallows. The Pope further allowed people to dress up to pay honor to the saints. Soon, the Church came up with a decision to include a second day to the festival. It was to be observed on November 2 and was named as All Souls Day.
The day was dedicated to the remembrance of the departed souls. The festival marked the reciting of prayers and lighting of candles, to lessen the duration of suffering for the dead, before ascending to heaven. In England, the trick or treat tradition is not followed. Instead, the ritual of Soul Caking takes place, in which the children go from house to house, collecting money for the poor. People also give a soul cake to the children and on receiving it, the children recite a prayer for the departed relatives of the donor. However, the Soul cakes bear different names in different parts of England. For instance, in some parts, it is called the Saumas or Soul Mass cake and made out of dark fruitcakes. In another region of England, the cake are covered in caraway seeds and formed into a bun. People in some parts of UK light turnip lanterns on their gateposts. They believe that by lighting lanterns, their home will be protected from the spirits.
“In Japan, Halloween lasts for three days. On the first day, people visit the graves of their near and dear ones. They even decorate them with different types of fruit, cakes and lanterns. The second day begins with the erection of spirit altars called tamadane, at home. Families engage themselves in building the altars at their homes, for the departed souls of their loved ones. At the top of the altar,
they place the ancestors memorial signs, along with a variety of mouth-watering vegetarian dishes. They also carve horse shapes on the cucumbers and place them on the altar. These horse-cucumbers stand for the horses on which the spirits are invited to ride. The final day of the festival is the time for the community to congregate together. People assemble to perform the bon-odori, a tempting slow dance where the dancers move in concentric circles or multiple lines. It is the occasion where hundreds of people dance together. In the evening, people float small paper lanterns on the river or sea. Tis ritual is associated with the popular belief that lights lead the spirits way back to the other shore.
“In Canada…the festival signifies that night of the year when, as per the ancient Celtic beliefs, the dead and the deceased rise from their graves and mingle with the world of the living. The festival is celebrated on the 31st of October and is considered to have originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian All Saints Day…Some people even go to the extent of building life-sized replicas of caves and graveyards. 
“In America, Halloween stands for a congregation of both religious and pagan beliefs, rituals and traditions. Irish immigrants were the ones to bring the festival to America. In 1840, during their escape from their countrys potato famine, they came to America and made it familiar with Halloween. Anoka, Minnesota, was the first city in America to conduct Halloween celebration officially, in 1921. Every year on October 31, Americans celebrate Halloween with complete zeal and enthusiasm. The festival is celebrated to pay tribute to the departed souls of the near and dear ones. It is believed that the souls of the dead relatives come to earth to visit their living relatives.”4
So how should we as Christian treat this day? No matter what country we live in, as a Christian we need to be careful with this holiday. “Many parents who encourage their children to go trick-or-treating may not realize the occult background to this practice and simply see the activity as harmless fun. This may unwittingly lay their children open to all sorts of evil influence. In recent years, the police services in the U.K. and the U.S. have put officers on high alert at Halloween because of the growth of anti-social and vandalous behavior.”5
Paul S. Taylor of Answers in Genesis writes in the October 27, 2008 Answers article, A Night When Evil Is Celebrated, Playing With Fire?  “While I would argue that Halloween has always been a dubious and anti-Christian festival, carefully observant parents have noticed that in recent years the godless nature of the event has increased and realize that even more caution is warranted. This problem has occurred hand-in-hand with the slide into godlessness generally associated with an evolutionary worldview, in which God is not central to our lives, and death and the occult are glorified, rather than abhorred.
“This leads us to the important issue of how Christians should respond to the festival. I would suggest the following:
1 I, personally, urge Christians not to take part in the festival. The world of evil is very real, and we should not carelessly expose our children to it.
2 If your children are being encouraged to take part in Halloween-related activities at their schools against your wishes, then contact the schools and voice your concerns.
3 Consider giving tracts (U.S. | UK/Europe) instead of (or in addition to) giving them sweets or money. The ReachOut Trust ( also has many good tracts written for even very young children and include a gospel presentation for their parents.

4 Consider an alternative. Many churches today are organizing “Light” parties or ‘Hallelujah’ parties or other similar events that focus the children’s attention on the Bible and on Jesus. Another positive alternative would be to have a ‘Reformation Party’ to mark the fact that October 31 is the anniversary of the day when Martin Luther nailed his theses to the door of the church in Wittenburg.”

I couldn’t agree with him more. 
Until next time, be safe out there today and tonight!
God bless,

                                                             HORSE EVOLUTION?

Hi everyone!
How have you all been? I have been enjoying our beautiful autumn weather. It makes me want to take a horse back ride in the country!

Speaking of horsesthere are some really interesting facts about this kind that you may not have learned in school...
The horse family includes Przewalski’s and modern horses, zebras, donkeys and several extinct species such as the three-toed horse. These animals are descendants of the original horse kind, though evolutionists take it a step beyond that—still using an
outdated 1841 “horse evolution tree” that claims unrelated extinct animals are the true horse ancestor. Both evolutionists and creationists recognize that multiple modern “species” can arise from the same ancestral group. For evolutionists, this is the idea of evolution from a single common ancestor. For creationists, this is the idea of variation within a single created kind.
Life coming from creation is a much more logical explanation for the existence of all life. For example, coexisting anatomical diversity within the horse kind, both in fossil layers and the modern world, is an example of original DNA diversity, not evolutionary gain from new genetic information obtained through mutations (the definition of mutation is the loss or rearrangement of genetic information). The variations that developed within the horse kind are a result of environmental pressures developed since the global Flood (and perhaps even before The Flood).  
Physical evidence supports this reasonable line of thinking. For example, in Nebraska, North America at the Ashfall Fossil Beds, three-toed and one-toed horses have been uncovered side by side. If the three-toed horse truly is the  ancestral creature of our
horses, why are they found side by side? “Clearly, the one fact that is ‘verified’ is that three-toed and one-toed horses both existed at the same time. Both specimens were trapped in the same volcanic eruption, in the same locality, ‘frozen in time’. This hardly supports the idea that one type was the ancestor of the other! Creationists, on the other hand, see in-kind differences as just that: morphological, genetic, and behavioral differences explained by adaptation to environments and selective forces. Offspring end up with less genetic information than their ancestors, not more. Their differences reflect selective forces at work since the Flood. As members of the horse kind have diversified, no new kind of genetic information has been produced. Existing genetic information has simply—or not so simply!—been shuffled, rearranged, and re-sorted.”
More physical evidence that supports creation rather than evolution comes from the DNA of an ancient horse’s foot, excavated in 2013. It was discovered preserved in the permafrost of the Canadian Yukon. Scientists have compared its DNA with various modern and ancient equine genomes. The findings suggest that horses—in their remarkable variety—have been horses for a very long time.
In addition Przewalski’s and modern horses, zebras, and donkeys are all considered members of the “horse kind” by creation scientists because they are able to hybridize extensively producing viable offspring a lot more than given credit for. However, evolutionists list horses, donkeys and zebras as separate species. One of the definitions of a species is that it cannot produce viable offspring if bred outside of its own species. Zonkeys (zebras bred with donkeys), zorses (zebras bred with horses) and mules (donkeys
bred with horses) confirm these seemingly  incompatible animals are varieties of the same created kind.
 So what did the ancient horses look like? Well, here are some clues…donkeys, zebras, and Przewalski’s horse all have stiff mohawk like manes. All three have some kind of striping or banding marks on  their bodies. In addition our ancient ancestors drew pictures of horses on  cave walls that look very much like the Przewalski’s horse. And the first recorded history of donkeys is in Egyptian hieroglyphics and ancient art about 900 years after The Flood. These are pictures of men hunting
wild donkeys. This fits well with the unaltered time line recorded in scripture. 

Donkeys are well adapted to hot, dry environments which didn’t come about until around 700 to 800 years after The Flood. This was due to dramatic climax changes that begun during deglaciation of The Ice Age causing a global drought. This was recorded in scripture when Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream of seven years of worldwide famine (Genesis 41:54).

In this novel glaciation and The Ice Age had just begun. Thus the land was lush and fertile and the horse kind had not yet been exposed to the environmental conditions (harsher dryer deserts) that started adaptations to develop. These variations we know today as donkeys, zebras and several extinct species.

Until next time…
Enjoy God’s creation!
