Many Christians have said to me that they like to believe in evolution and the Bible. They say that God used evolution to “create” the world.
I would like to ask these Christians a few questions.
The Biblical account of Creation in Genesis seems very specific with six days of creative activity, each having an evening and a morning. Also the Biblical account of creation has the order all wrong according to the evolutionary view. Do you think that God should have inspired an account more in keeping with evolution, the truth as you see it, if He did use evolution to create everything? Why do you think God had an account recorded that was not accurate to the evolution view?
The Bible says that Adam was created from “the dust of the ground” and when he died he would ” return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” If you believe that the dust Adam was created from represents an ape from which he evolved, did he turn back into an ape when he died?

I love science. Science is such an awesome and interesting subject.
What is Science?
Science means ‘to know’. The dictionary definitions tend to focus on systematic classification and careful collection of data: Things that can be observed, tested, and demonstrated.
Why are there lies in our text books?
So why is there so much that isn’t science being taught in our school’s science lesson? Why are there so many lies in our text books? And why are there still displays in our national museums that teach these lies as facts?
Last June I took a trip to the National History Museum in London.
As you can see the original bones of ‘Lucy’ are on display for all to see. What they forget to tell you though, in the little explanation underneath, is that there is much controversy over whether ‘Lucy’ is the ‘missing link’ between humans and apes or whether she is just simply another chimpanzee.
Donald Johanson used some very bold and imaginative language concerning his find and was very confident in his claims that ‘Lucy’ walked upright.
Now the evenings are getting lighter and warmer, there are more young people out on Friday nights, and witnessing is easier. Last night I spent the evening with a group of lads at the skateboard park. We spent a while chatting about their skateboards and then shared the Law and the Gospel with them.
They were so interested and hung on our every word. They have been so let down by so called Christians who say that Christianity is all about love and forgiveness without showing them the Law and how it affects them, and it has confused them. They think they’re all right and going to heaven and don’t even have a concern about the fact that they may be going to hell.
The Trinitarian Bible Society are sending me 20 free copies of the Bible to give out as I witness and we now have 1000 copies of ‘Finding God’s Way’ that we can give out too.
But what is most exciting is how God is beginning to move Christians, across our nation, to get back to sharing the law and the Ten Commandments as well as the gospel.
While I was talking with Anne Newman, at the TBS, I was telling her about how I have the opportunity to go into the local senior school on the 11th May, to share about the film and to share the Law and Gospel. She explained to me about their work at the moment. Anne Newman said,
“…we are currently mailing all the junior schools in these islands (takes several years, we write to 100 a week) offering the Ten Commandment Text Card, Bookmark and Poster and then offer Bibles as well if they are interested..”
It is really exciting to know that God is moving Christians across this land to share again the importance of the Ten Commandments, God’s Law.
If you have genuine contact with schools and want to have access to these free materials to give out then please contact me and I will pass your details on to Anne Newman of TBS.

I have decided to disable all comments as I really don’t have time to keep up with them all, to approve or answer them. I want to have more time to write articles and spend in studying. I have had over 1600 comments so far and it is just taking too much time. If you want to debate then you can go to my friend’s site Atheist Central
If you have a genuine question or want to contact me personally then please feel free to, but I will answer at my discretion.

This question came to my dad as a comment on my blog. He decided to write an article so that others may also benefit from the answer. I hope you enjoy this guest post from Andrew Drapper, my dad.
The commenter said:
“There is one Bible story in particular that I find difficult to accept as an actual event which in turn sheds doubt in general with regard to accepting the Bible as a literal record. Noah’s ark. Even with today’s technology I’m relatively sure it would be difficult, if not impossible, to build a vessel capable of housing two of each living thing on earth. Additionally there is the matter of food and water and keeping prey animals separate from their prey. The sheer size and logistics are a bit mind boggling.”
So, how was it done and is it possible?
Let us first have a look and see what the Bible says.
On 27th March I did a live interview with Tony Miano from Ambassadors Alliance Radio in the USA. You can listen below. (Oh, by the way, I didn’t know it was live until Tony asked me if I wanted to take a question from a listener!!!)
Recently I was asked by someone if I would answer some questions for their blog site so I thought I would put up the answers on here too. Hopefully this will give you a better picture of who I actually am.
1. Can you please tell us something about yourself?
My name is Deborah Joy Drapper. I love my name. Deborah Joy means ‘ joyful bee’ and I consider myself to be a happy, hard working, sweet girl, but with a sting in my tail!!
I was born in Essex, the 4th child in a family of 11 children. I have 3 sisters and 7 brothers ranging from 22yrs to 2yrs old. Seven years ago we moved down to Dorset where we live in a farmhouse, over a mile away from the nearest bus stop. We have several pets including 2 goats and 17 hens, so have our own milk and eggs, and I love to get out into the fresh air and help out.
I love pink and my room is full of pink things from my quilt cover and rug, to my fluffy pink pen and note book. I even have a pink tool bag full of pink screwdrivers and hammers!!!
