400-408Is there such a thing as a "false religion?"  If religion A is true, that means religion B is false – unless you have some whacky religion that says "all religions are true, even those that are false", which is irrational.  Why would someone believe in a religion that they also believed was false?  Why would anyone believe willingly in a false religion?

• USA Today (5/5/2010) Franklin Graham wants Obama to step in on Prayer Day slight. 

• USA Today (5/4/2010) Does God only heed Christian prayers? Are yours wasted? Of course God hears non-Christian prayers – that's how we all become Christians.  Don't make God "religious!"  Jesus died for the world, not the church!

558-608Dr. Jason Lisle is with Ken Ham's Answers in Genesis (, he's the designer of their Creation Museum in Cincinnati, he has a Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Colorado, and his latest book is The Ultimate Proof of Creation: Resolving The Origins Debate.  Today we talk about creationist cosmology.  He argues that: 1)the standard sequence of star development is due not to age but to mass, 2) that planetary magnetic fields are some of the best evidence for a young universe, 3) and that starlight poses the greatest challenge to creationist cosmology, but that there are possible rebuttals.  The larger theme is to be aware of the secular lens through which most of us do observational science, and question those non-biblical presuppositions.
