Creation Quotes

All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator. ~Alma 30:44 

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; For in him we live, and move, and have our being;  … for we are also his offspring. ~Saint Paul, Acts 17: 24,28

There is a God, and he hath created all things. ~2 Nephi 2:14

Creation vs. Darwinism

Darwin was aware of gaps in his theory. . . Even Darwin recognized his life’s work as a theory and left the door ajar. ~Keith Merrill

Evolution has a lot of holes filled with Silly Putty, but the one gaping wound they cannot hide is the Moral Law. ~Keith Merrill

Charles Darwin loved his wife and children. He paid his taxes and never kicked his dog. But Charles Darwin had a big idea, and ideas have consequences. ~movie: ”What Hath Darwin Wrought?”


George WashingtonRevisionist historians have tried to diminish Washington’s faith in God, but it is clearly evident in his writings. Washington learned very much from his father, who (as the legend goes) once taught young George a lesson using cabbage seeds. He arranged them in such a way that they spelled “George.” When they began to grow, he showed them to his son and explained to him that they just grew that way by happenstance. When George correctly rejected that premise, suspecting it was his Dad who arranged them, he told George to look around at how perfectly everything else was placed. The trees. The grass. The water. The hills. The sky.

Was it mere coincidence, or was it part of a grand plan?

Washington immediately knew the answer. ~Glenn Beck, Being George Washington, p.41

USA Today reports: The United States plans to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem on May 14, Steven Goldstein, undersecretary of State for public diplomacy said Friday.

The date coincides with when Israel proclaimed independence in 1948.  Secretary of State Rex Tillerson approved a security plan for “a facility” in Jerusalem Thursday evening, Goldstein said. “We’re looking at that as a possible date but safety of the Marines and other people who visit and work there is primary.”

The embassy will be located in a building that houses the U.S. Consulate General Jerusalem, in the Arnona neighborhood of the city, according a State Department statement. Consular operations will continue there, and U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, will work there with a small staff.

History Facts: Charles Darwin, Hitler, and Tragic Effects of Evolutionary Theory

History Facts:

Charles Darwin, Hitler, and Tragic Effects of Evolutionary Theory

Favoured Races

Carolyn Reeves

Following are excerpts from article co-authored by Carolyn Reeves and Marni Kendricks at the site Underground Paradigm

Darwin_headerFor a moment let us first consider the world-wide influence of a scientist named Charles Darwin. Any high school student in any public school in America has studied about the “Father of Evolution” and many have fully accepted and praised his life’s work. For me, there is something that doesn’t seem quite right about Darwin’s famous book, Origin of the Species. If you read the full title of the book, you may begin to see the problem: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

darwin-evolution-humanismYears before Darwin got around to publishing this book, he had come to believe that humans evolved over millions of years by natural selection in the same way he thought other animals had evolved. He concluded that the first humans were not a distinct creation of God, but rather a product of evolution from ape-like animals that produced different species of humans.

Darwin wrote another book, The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex, in 1871. He wrote a follow up book, The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals, in 1872. In these books he tried to show that man was just another primate. He tried to show that humans were similar to “higher” animals in physical characteristics, emotions, and intelligence. This was his chief argument for concluding that humans had evolved from other animals.

darwinism2-hitlerHitler began reading books and articles by extreme followers of Darwin as a young boy. By the time he had become an adult, he had read a large number of materials on human evolution in which a frequent conclusion was that the time had come to take more control of human evolution. These authors proposed that there should be policies to help the superior races increase in numbers and the inferior races to decrease in numbers

The tiny poisonous seeds sown by both intellectuals and uneducated racists led to unthinkable beliefs and actions in the 20th century. Unfortunately, these lingering racial beliefs seem to pervade our culture in a way that most people do not recognize.

adam-and-eve-offering-sacrificesThe absolute tragedy of these beliefs that have adversely affected millions is that they are not true! All humans–past, present, and future—are part of the same human race. Fuegians from South America, Aborigines from Australia, and slaves from Africa were never subhuman. These people may have been forced into primitive living conditions at some point. If you have ever seen the TV series, Naked and Afraid, consider how perfectly rational humans would have great difficulty surviving if they were isolated in a remote area without metal tools, weapons, and basic supplies. However, they, like all humans, were descendants of the first two original humans, Adam and Eve—not from a Common Ancestor randomly birthed in a warm pond. Stated in Biblical language, all people are of one blood and are descended from Eve.


Almighty God purposely planned, designed, and created humans in His image. And because of this fact, every person deserves to be treated with respect. There is no justification for treating anyone with contempt because of his or her race.

One of the major planks of any person’s worldview is finding a satisfactory answer to the question, “Who am I?” Bible-believing Christians would probably include something like this in their answer: “I am a child of God, created in His image, and I relate to all other humans as people who were created in His image”

quote-dec-independenceThomas Jefferson, along with the signers of the Declaration of Independence, believed that God created all humans with the same basic rights, because all humans are made in the image of God. The worldview accepted by most Americans is incorporated in Jefferson’s elegant words found in the Declaration of Independence, “. . . it is a self-evident truth that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. . . . .”


The tragic history of the effects of Darwin’s proposal of human evolution has been documented in Evolution’s Fatal Fruit by Tom DeRosa with a forward by Dr. D. James Kennedy (available from www.CreationStudies.org).

Hitler and the Nazi Darwinian Worldview by Jerry Bergman is a thoroughly documented book on Hitler’s quest to produce a superior race. Hitler’s worldview beliefs, along with the main scientists, academians, doctors, and leaders who supported him, are discussed and analyzed.

Smetana – Die Moldau (Karajan)




Dear Viewers: Yes, these are not pictures from the moldau in Prague.

Jakub Valenta

This is not about the Moldau in Prague. The song is about all the river, from beginning to Prague. Every part of this classical song expresses part of the Moldau between headwater and Prague. Faster places, slower places, etc… This is how was the song composed.

Bedřich Smetana

Bedřich Smetana (Czech pronunciation: [ˈbɛdr̝ɪx ˈsmɛtana]  2 March 1824 – 12 May 1884) was a Czech composer who pioneered the development of a musical style which became closely identified with his country’s aspirations to independent statehood. He has been regarded in his homeland as the father of Czech music. Internationally he is best known for his opera The Bartered Bride and for the symphonic cycle Má vlast (“My Homeland”), which portrays the history, legends and landscape of the composer’s native land.

Smetana was naturally gifted as a composer, and gave his first public performance at the age of 6. After conventional schooling, he studied music under Josef Proksch in Prague. His first nationalistic music was written during the 1848 Prague uprising, in which he briefly participated. After failing to establish his career in Prague, he left for Sweden, where he set up as a teacher and choirmaster in Gothenburg, and began to write large-scale orchestral works. During this period of his life Smetana was twice married; of six daughters, three died in infancy.

In the early 1860s, a more liberal political climate in Bohemia encouraged Smetana to return permanently to Prague. He threw himself into the musical life of the city, primarily as a champion of the new genre of Czech opera. In 1866 his first two operas, The Brandenburgers in Bohemia and The Bartered Bride, were premiered at Prague’s new Provisional Theatre, the latter achieving great popularity. In that same year, Smetana became the theatre’s principal conductor, but the years of his conductorship were marked by controversy. Factions within the city’s musical establishment considered his identification with the progressive ideas of Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner inimical to the development of a distinctively Czech opera style. This opposition interfered with his creative work, and might have hastened a decline in health that precipitated his resignation from the theatre in 1874.

By the end of 1874, Smetana had become completely deaf but, freed from his theatre duties and the related controversies, he began a period of sustained composition that continued for almost the rest of his life. His contributions to Czech music were increasingly recognised and honoured, but a mental collapse early in 1884 led to his incarceration in an asylum and subsequent death. Smetana’s reputation as the founding father of Czech music has endured in his native country, where advocates have raised his status above that of his contemporaries and successors. However, relatively few of Smetana’s works are in the international repertory, and most foreign commentators tend to regard Antonín Dvořák as a more significant Czech composer.

Perfection Quotes, a Parable, and the Path to God

Be Ye Therefore Perfect—Eventually

 Jeffrey R. Holland

[E]very one of us aspires to a more Christ-like life than we often succeed in living. If we admit that honestly and are trying to improve, we are not hypocrites; we are human. ~Jeffrey R. Holland

In that regard, Leo Tolstoy wrote once of a priest who was criticized by one of his congregants for not living as resolutely as he should, the critic concluding that the principles the erring preacher taught must therefore also be erroneous.

In response to that criticism, the priest says: “Look at my life now and compare it to my former life. You will see that I am trying to live out the truth I proclaim.” Unable to live up to the high ideals he taught, the priest admits he has failed. But he cries:

“Attack me, [if you wish,] I do this myself, but [don’t] attack … the path I follow. … If I know the way home [but] am walking along it drunkenly, is it any less the right way simply because I am staggering from side to side?

Abortion Statistics— numbers steadily decreasing

January-February 2018 – The Centers for Disease Control released a November 2017 report citing 2014 abortion rates (most recent available) in the U.S. According to CDC, abortion in the U.S. had fallen to its lowest rate of occurrence since 1971, when it was legal in only six states. From 2013 to 2014 alone, the numbers dropped 2%.

However, while CDC requests abortion data from the central health agencies of every state, as well as the District of Columbia and New York City, the federal government does not require that the agencies report. Therefore, CDC figures run short. For instance, in 2014, CDC received data from 49 reporting areas rather than 52.

Nonetheless, the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, known to have more inclusive data, also reported a decrease of nearly 4% from 2013 to 2014.

According to their numbers, abortion rates have not been lower since 1975, just two years after Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court case that brought about legal abortion nationwide.

Planned Parenthood Facts

Planned Parenthood defunding intact

January-February 2018 – On November 13, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a request to reconsider its decision to uphold Arkansas’s defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson ended the state’s Medicaid contract with Planned Parenthood in 2015. In August 2017, a three-judge panel of the court annulled a federal judge’s preliminary injunction that had temporarily prevented Arkansas from suspending Medicaid payments for Planned Parenthood services.

Middle school parents fight Planned Parenthood sex education

January-February 2018 – When the Cumberland County, North Carolina, school board approved a Planned Parenthood sex ed program for its middle schools, parents fought back. Hundreds of parents complained about the Comprehensive Sex Education curriculum that assumes all children are sexually active, and focuses on sexual preferences, LGBTQ education, and contraception. (See AFA Journal, 9/17.)

“I don’t need somebody else teaching my kids … the myths and facts about sexuality.” parent Nick Quello said. “That’s something the parents need to do. I just don’t think that’s appropriate for a 12-year-old, whether it be a boy or a girl. The school board needs to stay out of our homes.”

After the outpouring of parental complaints, the Cumberland County Board of Education decided to hold off implementing the program, pending review of the curriculum.

As the nation’s largest abortion provider, PP continues to face threats of taxpayer funding cuts and FBI investigation following years of numerous scandals, including Medicaid fraud, allegations of child sex abuse cover-up, and alleged profiting from the sale of aborted baby body parts.

Planned Parenthood blatantly targets America’s minority women


January-February 2018 – On October 31, 2017, Planned Parenthood tweeted, “If you’re a Black woman in America, it’s statistically safer to have an abortion than to carry a pregnancy to term or give birth.”

Margaret Sanger, founder of PP, stated in 1926 that “colored people are like weeds and are to be exterminated.” Ninety-one years later, the abortion giant continues to target racial minorities.

In 2012, 79% of PP’s surgical abortion clinics were located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods. And the targeting has accelerated with Planned Parenthood’s 25 mega centers built since 2004. Alarmingly, 88% (22 of 25) of them target women of color.

Patriotism: President Trump State of the Union Honors Patriotic Pre-Teen Boy who Respects Veterans


President Trump State of the Union Honors Patriotic Pre-Teen Boy who Respects Veterans

Donald Trump Honors Pre-Teen for Placing Flags on Soldiers’ Graves

Warner Todd Huston

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania take the time during Tuesday’s State of the Union (SOTU) address to honor a California boy who has been placing miniature American flags on the graves of soldiers since 2015.

Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old from Redding, California, started placing the flags on graves to honor the service of American soldiers when he was ten, his family says. The boy was invited to sit in the gallery as first lady Melania Trump’s guest at President Trump’s first State of the Union address, according to a statement released by the White House.

“Preston Sharp was visiting his veteran grandfather’s grave in 2015 when he noticed that other local veterans were not being honored with American flags or flowers,” the White House said in its statement. “Today, Preston has organized the placement of more than 40,000 American flags and red carnations on soldiers’ graves.”

“I knew I wanted to do something, because if it wasn’t for them fighting for us then we wouldn’t be here,” the patriotic young boy told the media.

Preston has also helped raise money to assist in the upkeep of soldiers’ graves.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders noted that inviting guests to attend the SOTU is an important tradition.

Others invited by the first couple include a police officer who adopted a drug-addicted child, small business owners, first-time homeowners affected by the tax reform bill, and an Army sergeant who survived the trauma of an improvised explosive device (IED).

The Trumps will also honor the parents of two teens who were murdered in September 2016 by members of the vicious foreign gang MS-13. Parents Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas will be in the gallery to memorialize their slain daughters, Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas.
