Things, including people, tend to change over time and, according to the conventional wisdom of many of the top folks among the scientific and cultural elite, if you combine enough time with the right kind of matter and the phenomenon called “chance,” you get to evolution as an explanation of the origins of life on Earth.
Note that the phrase can either refer to theistic evolution, which God uses, or a-theistic evolution, which puts God entirely out of the picture. There is also an important distinction to be made between macro-evolution, which concerns the appearance of distinct species, and micro-evolution, which concerns the appearance of changes within species.
So why should anybody working on Capitol Hill care about this?

One of the most common objections to the New Testament account of crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is that He didn’t actually die, but rather somehow survived.
There are variations in the argument but they essentially go on to claim Jesus was mistakenly assumed by his Roman executioners to be dead, He was buried and then revived in the coolness of the tomb and somehow escaped.
From there, according to the skeptics, Jesus lived an anonymous life in India or Japan or somewhere, anywhere but Heaven at the right hand of God the Father, as claimed by the New Testament (see, for example, the Gospel of John).

It’s Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019, and for the first time I am doing something I have eagerly anticipated for a long time. I am sitting in a Dirksen Senate Office Building food shop doing “office hours.”
No, not office hours like college professors keep because I’m not here grading, or judging, anybody. Rather, I will be spending a couple of hours a day several days each week simply working in one of the many places throughout the Capitol complex where folks refuel and refresh.

Do you recall the story of Goldilocks from your youth? She struggled as she sought the right porridge, chair, and bed, but in the end, her discoveries were “just right.”
The Goldilocks Principle in secular cosmology is a recognition by scientists that the Earth appears to be “just right” for life to exist on it. Leading science magazines routinely run articles updating their audiences on the hunt for other Goldilocks planets with just the right conditions for life to exist upon them as it does on Earth. The Earth appears to be designed for us.

Valentines Day is for lovers, especially lovers of chocolate, but here’s a fact that you may not know – Nearly half of the world’s chocolate is produced in the Ivory Coast of Africa, much of it with child labor.
That’s according to The Brookings Institution’s Molly Curtiss and Jenny Perlman Robinson, who write:

Evolution is accepted as unquestionable fact throughout the popular culture, mainstream media and academic community, but what if more than 1,000 scientists from Harvard, MIT, Princeton and similarly prestigious institutions from around America and the world say they now reject Darwinism, not on the basis of religion but science?
Well, they have. So now what?

Cold-case detective J. Warner Wallace gets excited when he talks about the essential connection between human consciousness and the necessary existence of God.
This is a huge problem for atheists because, as Wallace points out, brains and minds aren’t the same thing.
“Is that all we are, material bodies, material beings.” Wallace asks. “The problem is, if atheism is true, we all have brains, but do we really have minds?
