You Can't Handle the Truth

This is one of the greatest lines in movie history, spoken by Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men. In today's world, oh, how true it is. Recently, a California State University of Northridge scientist discovered a triceratops horn which he believed to be the largest ever found. Upon examination of the horn the scientist, Mark Armitage, was fascinated to find soft tissue on the sample. This stunned members of the school's biology department "because it indicated dinosaurs roamed the earth only thousands of years in the past rather than going extinct 60 million years ago." This validates Creationists' position of a young earth and when God said a day, He meant a day.

Shortly after Armitage's findings were published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, he was fired. Although, Armitage was a published scientist of over 30 years, the university claimed a "lack of funding" for his position. Obviously, Mr. Armitage's findings caused a stir at the university and the firing had much more to it than "lack of funding." California State University of Northridge could not handle the truth.

This story represents the ever increasing battle between God's Word and the "educated" word. Much of the academia world cannot handle any evidence that validates the Bible; in their eyes the Bible is a book of fairy tales and has no scientific value. They will not accept the fact that it is the spoken Word of God, and every part of it is fact.
