Competition – Days 9 & 10

Days 9&10 of the Twelve [Business] Days of Christmas

The question for day 9 was: What is your favorite Christmas memory?

There were thirty three comments, again none from anyone I usually note. Personally, I always enjoyed playing Santa and giving out the presents, as you would give out more to other people than to yourself so nearer the end there would be more presents for yourself that you could open at once.


The prize was Thinking God’s Thoughts After Him: Great Scientists Who Honoured the Creator by Christine Dao. Verse 9 is:

On the ninth day of Christmas, Dr Forlow gave to me…

Thinking God’s Thoughts

Five Evidences

Legends of Dragons

Human Hereditary

Some other books

Geologic Processes

Made in His Image

Big Book of History

And Climbers and Creepers


The winner for day 8 was “Doug Herson from Twitter.” He tweeted:

Genesis 1 says it all. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God-Jesus Christ the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Amen.

I can’t pick out an ‘honourable mention’ for that day, as they’re really all the same.


The question for day 10 was: If you could only put up one Christmas decoration, what would it be?

There were thirty four comments, but this time one is from Dr Shorey again, who said “Perhaps a small meteorite carved into the shape of the Earth.” I take it that geologists have somewhat better access to spare meteorites than other people do…


The prize for this day was The Young Earth by John Morris, which bills itself as The real history of the Earth – past, present, future. Could be worth a read.

On the tenth day of Christmas, Dr Forlow gave to me…

The Young Earth

Thinking God’s Thoughts

Five Evidences

Legends of Dragons

Human Hereditary

Some other books

Geologic Processes

Made in His Image

Big Book of History

And Climbers and Creepers

I’ve just realised that I’ve been forgetting to change the day number for the verses…


The winner of the previous day was announced to be Dennis Wilman, who wrote:

As newlyweds stationed in W. Germany for our first Christmas we went out and cut down a CHRISTmas tree that was about 15 feet tall.

Because our rented apartment had 10 foot ceilings we had to cut about 6 feet off of that poor tree to even get it into the house.

I was only an Airman First Class and we didn’t have money to decorate it so we decorated it with the CHRISTmas cards we received from our friends.

I’ll give an honourable mention to a comment from Sara Preast, largely because snow at Christmas obviously never happens here:

My favorite Christmas was when it snowed unexpectedly on Christmas Day! The night before the weatherman had said it probably would not snow only be really wet and rainy. So that night when I was praying I asked God if He would let it snow. The next morning after we unwrapped some presents we looked outside and sure enough it was snowing! That is my favorite Christmas memory!

  1. I do have a couple of spare meteorites in my desk drawer, and my wedding ring is a cored meteorite. Hey, it’s the oldest solid material you can touch.
    On another note, I visited the ICR while in Dallas last week. No one was there, but I did meet a nice creationists out front. I did some filming and will almost certainly be putting out the response video series to “That’s a Fact”. Mine will be called “That’s a Fact?” I’ll let you know when and were I post that material and appreciate feedback.

    • The world of geology never ceases to amaze.
      I get the impression from google maps that their Dallas office has one good angle for photographs but otherwise isn’t all that great. What kind of impression did you get from it, and who was the creationist?
      I’ve actually been listening to your lecture podcast thing lately, and they’re quite good, so you’ve got quite something to live up to in moving to a more visual format…

    • You’re right about the ICR location. The front is good for shots, but the rest is industrial. It looks like a strip mall location with a small arboretum in the center. The creationist was a microbio BS major who didn’t give her name. She asked if I was against the ICR, and I said I wasn’t against, just had some disagreements with them. She asked me what my concerns were, and I thought I’d start with climate change hoping it would drive her off her scent and leave me to my filming. It worked.
      Video is so much more work than audio, but I’m definitely going ahead with this series. At the very least it helps me practice my video work before I start publishing my real geologic video work. Just today I completed the second video in the series and hope to have three completed before I start releasing, maybe by next week.
      Hope you enjoy the podcast.
      Christian
