mid-week apologetics booster (9-29-2022)

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2300) from Nuggets:

Sanctification thus begins with justification (declaring the sinner just before God by graciously imputing Christ’s righteousness to him, Phil. 3:9), and continues as a process of purification that goes on until glorification, when the Christian sees Jesus face to face. – John MacArthur (MacArthur Study Bible commentary on 1 Peter 1:2)

As the BBC article says, In the 1970s, scientists had thought that DNA was a stable molecule, but Prof. Lindahl demonstrated that it decays at a surprisingly fast rate. This led him and then the others to look for repair mechanisms, and the researchers found several (hence the three recipients of the prize).: https://creation.com/dna-repair-mechanisms-shout-creation

  28. Are Christian High School Students Really Ready for College? We have sent this year’s graduating seniors off to college hoping that we as parents and teachers have prepared them for the challenges of college life. We gave them the best education we could, prodded them when they wanted to goof off instead of study, made college visits, wrote recommendations, and helped them write admissions essays. But have we prepared them for the most serious confrontations to their faith that they will face on the university campus?: https://crossexamined.org/are-christian-high-school-seniors-really-ready-for-college/

The idea that human beings and chimps have close to 100% similarity in their DNA seems to be common knowledge.

What is the basis for these claims and do the data mean there really is not much difference between chimps and people? Are we just highly evolved apes?: https://creation.com/human-chimp-dna-similarity
