Bath County News-Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper November 11, 2009 5 For some reason old abandoned buildings have always caught my atten- tion. Be it an empty house, church or an old store, I wonder about the history and the people who once occupied those empty and mysterious structures from long ago. While driving to French- burg a few weeks ago I spot- ted an old church building in Olympia that I hadn't noticed before. The moment I saw the ,church that sat stately, yet forlorn, behind a couple of huge trees, my mind was already conjuring up vi- sions of horse and buggies and calico dresses. After a visit to the Bath County Memorial Library I had a couple of names of people who might be able to tell me more about the churches history. So far I haven't learned much about the building, but I am confidant the con- tacts I do have will lead me in the right direction. Surely the beautiful and historic church has a chance Ufe in the "Past Lane" to be saved from being com- pletely destroyed. It would be a shame for a community to lose such an important piece of history. There are several old buildings in Bath County that I would love to learn more about and one of them includes the old IGA store that still stands in Bethel. And that grand old red brick on Bethel Ridge owned by Mrs. Donna Gall Maze has held my interest for years. Just a week or so ago Mrs. Maze stopped by the Outlook office and she told me the house was 200 years old! The Carl House that used to be located near The Greater First Baptist Church was a grand old home place that I wish was still standing.

If there is a God, and there is, it is easy to believe He has the power to create all things fully grown. But how do ,ou explain the great variety of trees, plants, and animals by evolution. Evolutionists have a problem: which came first, plants that provide pollen for bees, or the bee that pollinates the plants? And how could the bee and the plant be separated by millions of years of evolutionary time? The Bible indicates all things were made full-grown. Immediately after creating Adam and Eve He told them to "be fruitful and multiply" (-Genesis 1: 28). Fossils are often offered as proof of evolution. But evolutionists have a problem: there are no "intermediate" fossils. If evolution is tree there should be thousands of fossils that are half this and half that, but there are none!
