• About Today’s New Reason to Believe

    Today’s New Reason to Believe (TNRTB) is the flagship blog from Reasons To Believe that provides readers with fresh, new reasons from science for belief in Jesus Christ. Reasons To Believe is a science apologetics ministry headquartered in Southern California. Founded by Hugh Ross in 1986, the organization strives to demonstrate that science and faith are, and always will be, allies, not enemies. Through myriad resources—including books, print periodicals, podcasts, and a content-rich website—speaking engagements, and radio and TV interviews, RTB scholars present reasons for confidence in the findings of science and in the authority of the Bible.

Inflation’s Smoking Gun

Beginning in the early 1980s, scientists started developing inflationary models to solve problems in standard big bang cosmology. Since then, the search has focused on independent evidence of an inflationary epoch in the universe’s early history. The recent discovery of “B-mode polarization” in the cosmic microwave background radiation provides a strong signature for that epoch. … Continue reading

How Can Fish Live at Different Ocean Depths?

Recent work by scientists from around the world has uncovered the biochemical mechanism that allows fish to thrive at extreme ocean depths. This mechanism exemplifies the splendor of biological designs found throughout nature—designs worthy of a Creator. **** “Let the fish in the sea inform you.  Which of all these does not know that the … Continue reading

Digital and Analog Information Housed in DNA

Two researchers have demonstrated that DNA harbors information in both digital and analog formats. These two types of information appear to be coupled intrinsically through DNA nucleotide sequences to form an irreducibly complex system. This new insight reveals the elegant sophistication of genomes and advances the case for intelligent design by highlighting the remarkable analogy … Continue reading

Q&A: Four Rivers and the Location of Eden

Four rivers come together in Eden? The text says a river flowing through Eden became four heads. You look for the source [of the river], not the effluent. In addition, there is no reason for putting Eden in Mesopotamia except human tradition, which is almost always wrong. Please read the text. There is a place where four rivers rise: Turkish Armenia….Euphrates … Continue reading

Q&A: Who Created God?

Hello, Let me start by saying I’m not actually a believer at this moment. When listening to the lectures, I hear a lot of talk about the complexity of things being a big proponent for creation or design because somebody created it. But at some point in the paradigm you’re at least admitting that, somewhere, … Continue reading

The Higgs Apocalypse

In Monday’s post, we saw how God could have used the Higgs mechanism to help power the creation event—but the Higgs might also provide the mechanism by which God will someday sweep away this creation and replace it with the new heavens and new earth. Higgs physics allows for a possible scenario that sounds a … Continue reading

The Higgs Boson: How to Create Everything from Nothing

Physicists at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have reported new results showing that the “Higgs-like” boson discovered in 2012 is indeed consistent with expectations for a standard model Higgs boson (sometimes called the “God Particle”). This important particle could help explain the “how” of creation ex nihilo, or how God created everything out of nothing. … Continue reading

Q&A: What Is the Purpose of the Numbers in the Genesis Genealogies?

To whom it may concern,  I’m Jade, a second-year engineering student who’s struggling through Genesis, and I’m currently caught on the genealogies in Genesis 5. I did read your articles on them, but they all left out one problem: the numbers that the genealogies give.  The other telescoped genealogies don’t give these numbers, and even … Continue reading

Hypernaturalism: Integrating the Bible and Science

Though the views of naturalism and supernaturalism often pit science and religion against one another, hypernaturalism is proposed as an alternative that combines divine power and natural law. It is hoped that such a synthesis of science and faith can help religious people become more accepting of science, and place Christianity in a logical framework … Continue reading

Noah's Ark

Are You Ready to Talk about Noah?

Depictions of giraffes, polar bears, kangaroos, and other animals happily marching up the ramp of a big ship remain firmly fixed in most people’s minds when the name Noah is mentioned. Though appealing in children’s picture books, such images raise questions and even draw ridicule from skeptics. Where did Noah obtain the technology and resources … Continue reading

  • Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job

    Arguably the oldest book in the Bible, the book of Job has a surprising amount to say about some of the newest scientific discoveries and controversies. With careful consideration and exegesis, Hugh Ross shows that the Bible is an accurate predictor of scientific discoveries, and that both the book of Scripture and the book of nature are consistent both internally and externally.
  • Creating Life in the Lab

    Representing the best of RTB's efforts to anticipate scientific breakthroughs and explain their contribution to the case for Christian faith, biochemist Fuz Rana shows how recent advances in synthetic biology actually undermine the evolutionary explanation for the origin of life. Creating Life in the Lab addresses the scientific, theological, and philosophical aspects on both the dangers and promises of synthetic biology.
  • If God Made the Universe…Why Is It the Way It Is?

    Drawing from his popular book Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, Dr. Hugh Ross shares Scripture, stunning satellite photos, and the most recent scientific findings to explain the great love story that is our universe. This DVD series invites you to be a part of Dr. Ross’ small group. Each session includes a brief presentation (about 20 minutes), followed by Q&A.
  • Impact Events: The Earth

    In this unique student devotional, astrophysicist Jeff Zweerink and seasoned small-group leader Ken Hultgren connect little-known facts about our planet with faith-building insights about the Creator. The booklet includes practical, yet thought-provoking questions to help students apply each lesson’s principles to their lives. This Impact Events series is designed to transform your life and faith with truth from God’s Word and evidence from God’s world. God wants to impact your life. Will you let Him?
