Australian National War Memorial & Museum - Part 1

 

Outside Section & War Memorial

 

Canberra - Australian Capital Territory

 

Part 2 - click here - Aircraft & Basement Section Displays

 

These photos were taken over a number of trips to Canberra. Due to the restriction of not being permitted to take a tripod into the museum, some of the photos are a little blurred. The Australian War Museum is an amazing place and a must-see, worth going to Canberra if just to see that. You need about 4 hours to do it justice, plus you can have a cuppa or lunch in the canteen.

'Simpson and His Donkey,' in the grounds of the Australian War Museum. He served at Gallipoli in 1915 as Private

John Simpson in the 3rd Field Ambulance, Australian Army Medical Corps. Simpson became famous for his work

as a stretcher-bearer and as the man with the donkey at Gallipoli between 25 April, when he landed, and his death in

action on 19 May. Using one of the donkeys landed on the first day for water carrying and later, a second animal, he

transported wounded men day and night from the fighting in Monash Valley to the beach on ANZAC Cove. He did so,

according to CEW Bean, through deadly sniping down the valley and the most furious shrapnel fire. By the time

of his death, from machine gun fire as he was bringing down two wounded men, he had saved many lives.

He was buried on the beach at Hell Spit.

The Greatest Hoax on Earth?

 

 Refuting Dawkins on evolution

 

 

 Richard Dawkins, the undisputed high priest of evolution/atheism, says his book, "The Greatest

Show on Earth: the evidence for evolution," is the first time he has presented all the evidence for evolution/long ages. It is promoted as an unanswerable demolition of creation.

 

Scientist, logician, chessmaster and author of the world’s biggest-selling creationist book,

CMI’s Dr Jonathan Sarfati, relentlessly demolishes Dawkin’s claims point-by-point, showing

 biblical creation makes more sense of the evidence. A must-read—and a must-give

(to all evolutionist acquaintances)!

"But the day of the Lord* will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away

with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works

 that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what

manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and

hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved,

being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according

 to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells."
