Looking through a Galaxy Darkly

Nothing to see up there, folks. 

Astronomers have detected a galaxy that does not have "enough" of the imaginary stuff called dark matter to suit them. Dark matter was proposed as one of several rescuing devices for problems with the Big Bang, and although it supposedly composes most of the universe, none has been detected. Secularists have a habit of believing in things that do not exist and calling their blind faith "science".

The existence of dark matter is inferred by gravitational effects, and by ignoring other possible explanations for what is observed. Also, some tinhorns are unwilling to admit that gravity is not fully understood while still making declarations as if they understood both it and unproven dark matter — and all of physics. Dark matter is a controversial concept. A few creationary scientists believe it may exist, and some secular scientists claim that it does not. This discovery raises questions that are important to the creation-evolution controversy.
A team of astronomers recently concluded that a nearby spheroidal galaxy, designated as NGC1052-DF2, contains very little, if any, dark matter. Since Big Bang scientists use dark matter to explain how galaxies formed, this poses a potential problem for naturalistic views.

The galaxy in question, estimated to be about 65 million light-years away, has roughly the same volume as our own Milky Way galaxy, but it’s much dimmer due to a much smaller number of stars. By estimating the speeds of ten nearby objects, the team concluded that this particular galaxy had 400 times less dark matter than expected. In fact, there might not be any dark matter in this galaxy.

Modern Science and its Christian Basis

There is a common misconception nowadays that atheism is essential for science, and Christians are somehow automatically eliminated from scientific fields. Darwin's Flying Monkeys© insist that naturalism and atoms-to-atheist evolution are science. Truth is, there are Christians and biblical creationists active in scientific fields.

The idea that naturalism is essential for science is based on presuppositions rooted in scientism. This view is self-refuting. For science to operate, conditions need to be reliable and consistent. The biblical creation science worldview consistently furnishes the necessary preconditions of intelligibility, but in atheistic and evolutionary worldviews, science is impossible — they must tacitly admit that their views are flawed, and must stand on our worldview!

"But Cowboy Bob, you creationists are science deniers!"

Not hardly! We deny bad science, and erroneous philosophies that are utilized by secularists. If you study on it, you'll find out that the Bible not only makes science possible, it encourages science. Also, while some folks way back when did some science stuff, but when the sciences were being corralled, the founders and developers very often were Bible believers.
Recently, Professor Mike Klymkowsky of the University of Colorado–Boulder, uploaded a blog titled, ‘Go ahead and “teach the controversy:” it is the best way to defend science.’ In this he laments the unwillingness of some to accept what he claims are “rigorously established scientific conclusions,” one of which, of course, is evolution. This, he believes, is due to the failure to realise that “a foundational principle of science is that the natural world can be explained without calling on supernatural actors”. Also part of the problem, he thinks, is the belief in “the existence of a supernatural entity that cares for people, at least enough to create them”.

Much of the trouble, he argues, has arisen from a failure to teach science properly. However, he says that the solution is only to teach the controversy if “teachers understand the science and its historical context”. Sadly, there can be no doubt that it is Professor Klymkowsky who does not understand these.

Evolution Unhelpful in Medical Science

When discussing origins, adherents of universal common ancestor evolution will invariably claim that their belief system is essential to science. They tend to get on the prod when we disagree with the expression, "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution", and get even angrier when we show that it is false

Evolution is actually unimportant, and even harmful, to medical science

Medical science does not need evolution. When my ophthalmologist checked my eye for a suspected detached retina (it was fine), evolution was not the guiding principle in his diagnosis and treatment. My MD had me get lab work, and she adjusted my hypertension medication, then checked my A1c level (still under control). Evolution had nothing to do with it.

Evolutionary thinking hinders medical science. Take a look at how "vestigial structures" have been written off because of evolution, only to be demonstrated to have importance after all. Then we have the humiliation of "junk" DNA.

"But Cowboy Bob, antibiotic resistance proves evolution, and medicine needs to know it!" That hoary canard of antibiotic resistance and evolution is false


Despite the vacuous proclamations by owlhoots like Bill Nye, C. Richard Dawkins, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and others, evolution is not essential to science. Such a worldview hinders scientific progress. Sure, some folks are decrying that evolution is not taught enough in medical school. Those are sidewinders trying to justify their phony-baloney jobs. In reality, a creationary worldview is important to medical science, despite the protestations of Darwin's disciples.
Despite the wide acceptance of evolutionary beliefs among mainstream scientists, many physicians—whether they accept evolution or not—find evolutionary claims neither relevant nor useful. And the distinction is not due to a deficit of educational attainment: a medical degree is as much a doctoral degree in science as a PhD in the U.S. (and many other countries). Some claim that physicians would be better doctors if they understood evolution better, but many disagree.
Evolution is not emphasized in most medical schools. Medical educators have a great deal to teach to budding physicians in a short time. The least important topic is evolution.

Astrobiology Still not a Science

Last I checked, whenever something ends in -ology, it means the study of something. That is, unless someone has redefined the word. There is quite a bit of redefining going on nowadays. So, if you are going to have a study of something, it stands to reason that there should be something to study. Cosmology is not science, and in a very similar way, that thing called astrobiology is not science, either.

Astrobiology is like cosmology in that neither one is a legitimate science
"Cranky Alien" template furnished by Why?Outreach
There are no alien machines to study, nor are there aliens. I'll allow that scientists examine certain chemicals way out there thataway that may be conducive to life, but there is no biology happening. Just speculation and guesswork based on Big Bang assumptions and evolutionary presuppositions. If you study on it a spell, you'll see that they assume that since life evolved here, it must have evolved out there. See how that is supposed to work? They use the scientific principle of Making Things Up™, and then get paid for...doing nothing, actually.

Secularists deny what is obvious and what has been revealed in God's Word: our universe, and life itself, is the product of the Creator. Worse for their worldview, he did this recently.
Number of worlds beyond Earth where life has been discovered: zero. Number of optimistic articles about life in outer space: hundreds per year.
What happens when you take “bio” out of the fake science called Astrobiology? It becomes a pseudoscience. Since there is no “bio” yet found beyond earth, except in the imaginations of storytellers who believe in evolution, maybe that is a more accurate label. Here are some samples of fact-free, evidence-free stories circulating on science news sites.

Melanin Research Supports Creation Model

Fungi serve a purpose in the world by breaking down and essentially recycling dead things, but some types get a bit rambunctious and cause fungus infections. A recent study by researchers who reject standard Darwinian views inadvertently support creation science.

Research in melanin, protein, and Aspergillus fungi thwart Darwinism and inadvertently support creation science.

There are several hundred mold species in the Aspergillus genus. Some are useful in the environment, they can help in the fermentation process for alcohol, and others are used in medicinal products. The research under discussion is about the annoyance factor where they cause fungal infections.

A protein identifies fungal melanin, notifies cells and says, "There's a fungus among us", then they all laugh and go keep the interloper under control. This is an example of engineered adaptability. Darwinists generally believe that evolution and adaptation are caused by external influences, but we have been seeing that adaptations and responses are built in to organisms by the Master Engineer.
Fungal infections can be a pain to eradicate. But new results show why these infections can take an even tighter hold on people or animals that are missing a specific protein. The international research team that discovered this protein, and its importance, named it MelLec. This protein helps fight fungal infections by identifying a specific type of melanin that fungi make. Several aspects of this new discovery fit a creation-based model of creature adaptation.

The Hard Truth on Mudrock

There are several types of sedimentary rock, one of which is mudrock. From there, we have several kinds of mudrock, including mudstone and shale. If you do your own little geology experiment by putting sand and dirt in a jar with water, then shake it up, you can watch the stuff settle. It's more exciting than watching paint dry because you can see how the larger particles settle first, and the finest particles take much longer.

Research and the Genesis Flood indicate mudstone does not need millions of years to form

Mudrock can be mighty thick, such as the Marcellus Shale. Uniformitarian geologists will tell you that it took millions of years to form, and watching that mixture you shook up earlier might cause you to agree. Someone might wonder how biblical creationists can insist that the earth is about 6,000 years old when secular geologists are throwing around deep time expressions left and right. Also, mudrocks comprise most of the geological record.

Research was done (presumably by researchers, hence the name). They found that in fast-moving water, particles of mud would stick together and deposit much more rapidly. As we have seen on this site (as well as many other creationary sites), the Genesis Flood had a lot of water moving very quickly. The research supports the Flood account.
Geoscientists used a special kind of instrument called a racetrack flume at Indiana University in Bloomington. A normal flume looks like a very long, narrow glass aquarium. Researchers dump sediments in one end and release water to surge over those sediments. The geoscientists then watch to see how the water deposits the sediments downflow. Normally a flume is very long and straight, but a racetrack flume goes in a circle. So when the water is released, it flows around and around in a large circle and accelerates as it goes. As a result, the water flows much faster than in a long, straight flume.

Evosplaining Diatoms is Bad for Science

Not too long ago, we saw that little things matter. Specifically, a large number of tiny crustaceans like brine shrimp and krill are thought to stir up and help refresh the oceans. Diatoms are very small aquatic algae that can only be seen under a microscope, but our lives depend on them. It was recently discovered that the homes they build for themselves help protect their DNA.

Even though the paper had eight biologists, all we received was evosplaining. This included assertions, teleology ("evolutionary cause"), and other non-science. These owlhoots lack candor as well as an understanding of their own worldview.

An actual, demonstrable model or rational explanation of how it evolved? Not hardly! Credit to the Master Engineer for his design skills? That'll be the day! What these owlhoots did was actually add further damage to the credibility of the secular science industry.
Some of the most beautiful, elegant, and vital organisms on earth demand a better explanation than ‘stuff happens over and over.’
Your life depends on tiny glass architectures that were not even visible until the invention of the microscope, except in vast numbers in certain geological formations. These creatures are microscopic algae called diatoms. There are 100,000 species of diatoms, says an open-access paper in Nature Scientific Advances, distinguished by the exquisite glass ‘houses’ they build. The eight authors of this paper now have demonstrated that the glass structures called frustules, that fit together like two sides of a pill box, actually protect the cells’ DNA from damage by ultraviolet light.
