Below are my choices for the 15 Best Bible-Science Guy Blog Posts from 2018, listed in order of publication date. I chose the posts I liked best — the ones I found most interesting, most important, or best written. I included those that accumulated the most views or stimulated the most comments.

Clearly Seen (Jan 3)
There is no such thing as an atheist. Creation is clear testimony to the Creator, and this testimony is available and clear to every person. The evidence is so clear that no man can miss it, and therefore no man has an excuse.

Chicken or Egg?
Which Came First?

Science in the Bible – Chicken & Egg Dilemma (Feb 7)
Creationists have always argued based on Genesis that the chicken came first before the egg. There is now scientific evidence that this is true.
This is the 28th of 34 articles in the Science in the Bible series of blog posts, 10 of which were published this year. Although the Bible is not primarily a science textbook, it does contain many scientific truths, truths that long pre-date their discovery by today’s scientists. This series focuses on lesser known scientific truths that were alluded to in the Bible long before they were known to scientists.
The Science in the Bible posts were among the most popular posts. The 10 published this year were among the dozen most-viewed 2018 posts.

History’s One-Two Punch (Apr 4)
Identifies, discusses, and defends two big historical events that knocked everybody off their feet. For many, they are still unbelievable today, but they really did occur.

Was Jesus an Evolutionist? (Apr 18)
Did Jesus view Genesis as authentic history or as figurative fables? Did Jesus interpret Genesis literally, or did He view it symbolically? Did Jesus believe in any variation of evolution? Looking at Jesus’ own words and deeds clearly answers these questions.

Do You Think Like an Evolutionist? (May 2)
Ten questions to determine whether you Think Like an Evolutionist. Includes the antidote for the TLE virus. This was one of the three most commented blog posts.

Kepler — after endless scrubbings

Biblical Thinking (May 16)
Thinking Biblically involves Subordinate Thinking and Confrontational Thinking. It begins with disciplining the mind so that each and every thought honors and glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. Then Biblical thinkers confront and destroy, in kindness and truth, the false, anti-God thinking that persistently bombards our world today.

Kepler Meets Skunk (May 23)
Our Jack Russell terrier Kepler told what happened when he attacked a skunk. He wrote 7 blog posts this year about his many adventures. Click Kepler Blogs for a list of Kepler’s blog articles.

Prehistoric? Bogus! (June 27)
There is no such thing as prehistoric anything! Written history begins with the first verse of Genesis which documents the creation of the universe by God about 6,000 years ago. History begins “in the beginning” with Genesis.

An Outrageous Claim (July 18)
Near the end of His life on earth, Jesus of Nazareth serenely made the most outrageous claim ever made by a human being. What was it? His claim is either True or False, and the implications are enormous. What’s the evidence for His claim?

Who Made You? (Aug 22)
Today many people are very confused by a plethora of unbiblical worldviews. Yet the Bible speaks clear and compelling truth to a badly muddled people. This blog post discusses a short Bible verse stuffed with seven vital truths.

Darwin’s Secret Sex Problem (Sep 19)
How did sexual reproduction ever get started? Evolutionism cannot explain how males and females could simultaneously emerge in kind after kind of animal. This is the huge “elephant-in-the-room” problem for evolutionary biologists that is no problem at all for Biblical creationists. This was one of the three most commented blog posts.

The Eternal Gospel (Sep 26)
The word Gospel means Good News, and it refers to how man can be reconciled to his Creator. What part of the Gospel is rarely included when the Gospel is presented? Why is the Gospel eternal? The sequels Is Belief in Creation Necessary for Salvation? and Wrestling with “Eternal” complete the discussion.

What is the Starting Point for Reason? (Oct 17)
What is the relationship between Faith and Reason? Are they contradictory and incompatible as many claim? This post and its sequel, Reason Permeates Faith, show that Biblical faith is the starting point for valid reasoning, and logical reasoning actually supports Biblical faith.

Apollo 8 Crew
Frank Borman, Bill Anders, Jim Lovell

Old Guy Fires Football (Oct 31)
