After reading through that article, you are now sure that Storks delivering babies is a myth, right? But hold on. Not so fast!! Dr. Jim (Dr. J.J.S.

Song Sparrow by Ray – Stoney Creek Ontario Canada Song of Solomon 2:12 “The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.” The Bible speaks of bird calls as songs, as most of us do. However, evolutionary theory has led some scientists to say that we are merely assigning human meanings to the calls of birds. They say that the bird calls have nothing to do with real music. Ornithologists have known for some time that bird songs use the same musical scales as our music. Decades ago, it was noted that some of Beethoven’s work co ..read more

Clarifying Confusion about Eagles Wings Dr. James J. S. Johnson “As an Eagle stirreth vp her nest, fluttereth ouer her yong, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:” Deuteronomy 32:11 (KJV translation, with AD1611 spellings) GOLDEN EAGLES nesting Based upon a verse in Deuteronomy, 32:11, many expect that an eagle mother, in the wild, sometimes “carries” her young eaglets “on their wings”. Yet that behavior is not observed, in the wild (or in captivity), so Bible skeptics allege this discrepancy as a so-called Bible “error”—but is this a straw-man accusation, based ..read more

In July I went on an overland bird-watching trip organised by a friend of mine in Melbourne. The main goal was finding arid country birds for two English birders. I tagged along to take some photos. We met up in Melbourne. Then we drove through Western Victoria to the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, along the Birdsville Track and through Western Queensland to Mt Isa. I flew home from there, while the others continued to the Gulf of Carpentaria and finally to Cairns, so that the English pair could fly back to London. Australia has four species of bird called “Painted”, and we saw three of th ..read more

Even Chickens Get Curious Dr. James J. S. Johnson Have you been surveilled lately? Is someone watching how you live?
