A Monarch's Journey
Every year hundreds of millions of Monarch butterflies migrate thousands of miles to a secluded patch of forest in central Mexico. There, they spend the winter to ensure the survival of their species. This perilous journey—made by insects weighing less than an ounce—is one of the great wonders of nature and compelling evidence for design and purpose in the living world.
What Do Fossils Tell Us?
Fossils are remains or other evidence of organisms that lived in the past and are preserved in the rocks. How did they form and what can we learn from them?

The Christian and Big Bang Cosmology
Does the Big Bang Theory integrate directly with the biblical cosmogony? Should individual Christians feel intellectually obligated to adopt and defend the Big Bang Theory? Article published on Perspective Digest, v.24/4.
How Can Miracles Be Possible?
The denial of miracles is a recent phenomenon based on how modernity has chosen to understand the workings of nature and what is possible in it. Belief in a personal God (theism), however, argues that through God’s actions, an event that is naturally impossible can be transformed into a real historical event. This article was originally published in Perspective Digest, v. 24/2.

Evolution: The Seen and the Unseen
How can some people be so certain about evolution, while others, with the same certainty, deny it? Part of the answer can, in broad terms, be boiled down to the difference between what is seen and what is not seen. More specifically, and in the context of evolution itself, this disparity arises from the difference between microevolution and macroevolution. What are these two concepts, and how does the difference between them help explain much of the controversy surrounding the theory of evolution? This article was published on the August 2019 issue of Signs of the Times.
Seeking Understanding - Michael Hasel
Seven centuries before Christ was born, the Kingdom of Judah was torn apart by Assyrian invaders. What can the remarkable record of these events found in the palace of King Sennacherib tell us about these events? What are archaeologist finding today that provides us with even more information? And what about the record of this history in the Bible? How reliable is it and what does it tell us about the God worshiped by those living in Judah then and by people living around the world today? Learn answers to these questions from Michael Hasel, Professor of Near Eastern Studies and Archaeology at Southern Adventist University, Director of the Institute of Archaeology, Curator of The Lynn H. Wood Archaeological Museum and Co-Director of The Fourth Expedition to Lachish. What has challenged and changed his understanding as he confronts the fascinating evidence he deals with as an archaeologist? What has the research done by him and other archaeologists revealed about the biblical record of history?
