Evolutionary Truth by Piltdown Superman

Welcome to the home of "The Question Evolution Project". There is no truth in goo-to-you evolution. We are bombarded with dubious evidence for the "fact" of evolution. Contrary evidence is suppressed. That is against the true spirit of scientific inquiry. Using an unregistered assault keyboard, articles and links to creation science resources are presented here so people can learn something besides materialistic propaganda. בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ.

Evolutionists, DNA is NOT Your Friend!

Uncle Pilty wants me to remind you that we use unregistered assault keyboards in the creation resistance army against the establishment of evolutionary dogma. Let's go...

Evolution is called a theory (and many of its adherents refer to it as an incontrovertible fact), but it has very little resemblance to what Darwin popularized long ago. Today's Darwinism relies to a great extent on DNA and the amazing idea that we can have genetic mistakes causing us to evolve upward. Evolutionists will say that DNA is proof of evolution, and that they have made accurate predictions. Oh, really?

Darwinists will claim that there are predictions based on DNA that are fulfilled in evolutionary theory. That is not quite right. They use logical fallacies like circular reasoning, affirming the consequent, insufficient evidence (including ignoring other possible explanations for what has been observed), and so on. The truth of the matter is, DNA is a friend of creation science!
For over 150 years, Darwin’s hypothesis that all species share a common ancestor has dominated the creation-evolution debate. Surprisingly, when Darwin wrote his seminal work, he had no direct evidence for these genealogical relationships—he knew nothing about DNA sequences. In fact, before the discovery of the structure and function of DNA, obtaining direct scientific evidence for common ancestry was impossible. Now, with online databases full of DNA-sequence information from thousands of species, the direct testing of Darwin’s hypothesis has finally commenced. What follows is a critical reevaluation of the four major lines of genetic evidence that secular scientists use to support evolutionary common ancestry.

Chasing a Comet With Rosetta

At this writing today is August 30, 2014 and the Rosetta spacecraft has entered orbit around Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenk. (It is an understatement to say that this is an ambitious undertaking, since the flight alone has taken ten years.) The Philae probe is expected to land on the comet in a few weeks, and several sites have been projected.

And I thought the 1986 Vega probes that dealt with both Venus and Halley's Comet were big deals! Well, they were for that time. It's interesting to me that the Rosetta will be using outdated equipment, because a great deal has changed in the ten years since it was first launched. But "old" does not mean ineffective.

Secular scientists are starting with the presuppositions that comets are building blocks of the solar system. By rendezvousing with this comet, they hope to find secrets to the origins of many things, possibly even life itself.

Not hardly.

Instead of cooperating with "deep time" paradigms, the comet is actually testifying to the same old thing that baffles secular scientists: it "acts young", and not billions of years old. The secrets it yields may very well prove disappointing to their worldview.
After a ten-year-long flight, the European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft entered into orbit around a comet. It will soon attempt to actually land a probe on the comet's surface. Though data-gathering has only just begun, the comet is already divulging secrets.

ESA's Director General Jean-Jacques Dordain told ESA, "Europe's Rosetta is now the first spacecraft in history to rendezvous with a comet, a major highlight in exploring our origins. Discoveries can start."

But the list of discoveries that the ESA expects may be too lofty for a lowly comet. Space.com quoted Mark McCaughrean, a senior scientific adviser for ESA, as saying during an August 6 webcast, "The really big questions here are, 'Where do we come from? Where does the solar system we live in come from? How was it put together? How was it assembled? How did the planets get built up individually, and how did water get to this planet that we live on?'"

What Does Science Have to do With Sexual Activities?


Give us a kiss...

It is becoming more frequent when "science" is promoting an agenda — usually, a leftist agenda. Sure, science is great when discussing sex properly and scientists are actually doing real science. But when we have bad science and pseudoscience being used to ridicule traditional sexual values, promote promiscuity and abortion, get involved in government-mandated contraception, supporting gender confusion — the false researchers and the science press do not keep their own domain and abandon their proper abode, there is a problem. Especially since so many people will accept what "scientists say" without question, even when scientist say things that have nothing to do with science.
To what extent should scientists presume to offer advice about sexual matters?

Beyond providing descriptions of body parts and how they work, science exits its domain when telling people how they should behave or think about sex. Yet repeatedly, editorials in journals and articles on science news sites engage in advocacy about sexual morality. Except in rare cases, it’s usually slanted from a leftist, libertine viewpoint.

You Are a Busy Place!


It has been made into a joke where royal persons referred to themselves in the plural, such as, "We are not amused". Although they had no way of knowing it, they were more correct than they knew — but for different reasons. We are not alone inside ourselves. There are billions of microorganisms living there, coexisting and even helping us thrive.

Naturally, evolutionists will assert that they gradually evolved along with us, but they do not offer models, believable explanations or anything other than assertions. In fact, to want us to believe such a thing is asking quite a bit. Further, they equivocate "evolution" with "adaptation", and make it sound like microbes-to-man evolution is realistic, but such a word game is disingenuous at best. It makes much more sense to believe that they are doing what they are designed to do from the beginning.
By learning more about “who” lives in you in sickness and in health and what they are doing, medical scientists hope to recruit microbial aid to help the body fight not just infections but also noninfectious diseases and conditions ranging from premature birth to cancer.
The human placenta, for instance, hosts an assortment of bacteria similar to those in the mouth. These may well contribute to the normal progress of pregnancy, provide useful metabolites to the fetus, influence the development of the fetal immune system, and either promote or prevent premature labor — depending on the composition of the bacterial population. Research in this area is ongoing, and Baylor College of Medicine maternal-fetal medicine specialist Dr. Kjersti Aagaard says, “These discoveries could lead to rapid breakthroughs in not only identifying women at risk for preterm birth, but developing new and worthwhile strategies to prevent preterm birth.”

Standing Firm for Creation Science Despite Opposition

— by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

When running this online creation science ministry, and being in contact with others who stand for biblical creation, we see some pretty vicious stuff from anti-creationists and misotheists. (When I say that I am a biblical creationist, I mean that I believe in a literal six-day recent creation as well as the global Flood, according to what the Bible teaches.) Evolution is a cornerstone for atheism and liberal Christianity (or a word I like to use for liberal religion, “churchianity”), and they detest those of us who will not compromise on what the Bible says.

Several creationist Pages on social media are what I consider "link mills", simply pasting links to creation science articles (sometimes sending them to sites that are, as a whole, opposed to our message even though the specific articles may be adequate). Some of us strive to aim higher, and are very selective in what links we post. In addition, we encourage people to learn how to think critically. When it comes to theological matters, we want to encourage people to think biblically, reasoning from the Scriptures.



I firmly believe that there are two things that prompt people to hate some creation science ministries more than others: The fact that we will put God's written Word first, and that we want people to think logically instead of with their emotions. Those two things are tremendous threats to anti-creationists. There are people who elevate current findings and interpretations of science above the Word of God. Most atheists have naturalistic presuppositions as a starting point to interpret evidence. Biblical creationists stand on the Bible as our starting point, and creation scientists propose models and make calculations based on recent creation. That's what scientist do, they start from their worldviews.

Evolution is crammed down our throats at every turn. It is asserted as unquestioned fact, usually without any contrary evidence offered. We present "our side of the story", and anti-creationists seek us out with vituperative attacks. (Unfortunately, many liberal Christians use the same naturalistic presuppositions as materialistic atheists, and actually side with them in attacking biblical creationists.) Many demand "equal time", but they already have the monopoly on origins information, and are actually seeking to suppress evidence that refutes evolution and affirms recent creation. Sometimes they seek to confuse people who are wanting to learn the creationist view of origins, Flood geology and so on.

Evolutionists have an advantage in that many Christians (along with too many people who have come out of government-run school systems) are unskilled at thinking critically. They will go after Christians with loaded questions, assertions, logical fallacies, ridicule and more (often taken from misotheist sites). Sometimes, they have legitimate questions. Unfortunately, there are Christians have not put much effort into learning how to think critically and to defending the faith. The disadvantages that the anti-creationists have include their own inability to think critically, that atheism is irrational and incoherent, and that evolutionism is loaded with assumptions, false assertions, fallacies and outright fraud. When Christians are actually equipped to challenge atheists and evolutionists, we stop them in their tracks because they are surprised to find people who have done their homework (unlike many atheists and evolutionists).

We try to be polite with atheists, but they detest having their wisdom and worldview challenged. When we stand up to them and show their errors, they resort to emotional reactions and attempts at manipulation. Many will often accuse us of anger, rudeness, dishonesty, stupidity and more when it does not exist. Some even go to various sites around the Web and "tell on us". If they even attempt to offer substantiation for their claims, they resort to selective citing, misquotes and straw men. I have one stalker in particular that spams 40-50 people, mostly creationists, in his efforts to shut down other creationists as well as me. Fortunately, this particular atheopath is not taken seriously by most people. There are some atheists that want to have respectful dialogue, but creationist sites seem to attract the angry types most often.


Like other creationists, it's my job to present accurate information and not to compromise and please people. (Note to some atheists: "Accurate", yes. Because you do not like something or disagree with the interpretations of evidence, that does not make it "inaccurate" or even a "lie".) If someone is angry because I exposed a "creationist" Page for being run by a cult and I lose readers at The Question Evolution Project, I won't lose sleep over it. Similarly, if people dislike our anti-abortion stance and leave, oh well. Theistic evolutionists and OECs (old earth creationists) ridicule us for our lack of compromise. So be it. Creationists are to present the truth and do it biblically, not attempting to please people by trying to make them feel good. Political correctness and coddling are not my primary considerations.


Being in a teaching position and in a ministry is an awesome responsibility. Not only are we going to be under stricter judgment from God, but we care about the people who sincerely, read the material and interact with us; I do not want to give bad information or send them to sites that oppose us. There will be mistakes, we are human after all, and we are trying to grow in both grace and knowledge. 

There are some who will say that we have arrogance because we will not compromise and insist that we are right. They can believe whatever they wish (if someone is going to think evil of you, there is nothing you can do to stop it), but the fact is that Christians have to come to God in humility for salvation, and the truth is in his written Word, the Bible. This includes the truth of creation. Science is very important, but we do not elevate it over God's revealed truth.

The attacks on Christians, and especially creationists, are increasing. Our freedoms are being eroded, including our freedom of speech as well as freedom of religion. Here is an example of an atheist Page that is engaging in criminal activity to harass a Christian that dared oppose their Mighty Atheist Wisdom®:

I understand that this same Page ridiculed me for saying that atheists' hatred toward Christians can (and has!) become violent. Then they did some cyber stalking and harassment. Are atheists above all laws, or just God's laws? Speaking of laws, I'm told that there is someone involved in police work as an Admin there. Maybe these things are acceptable where he comes from?
"More and more people are having a hatred for Christians . . . People behave in a manner consistent with what they believe. If they believe that Christianity's okay . . . they're going to behave very much differently than someone who believes Christianity is a hate-mongering, filthy religion that needs to be destroyed. People with different belief systems are going to behave in different manners based on the belief system that they have. We behave in a manner consistent with what we believe, not with what we don't believe. I have seen an increase in hostility towards Christianity from all types of groups..."
Matt Slick, "Matt Slick Live", 6-02-2014
Here is an excerpt from Matt's podcast that is very important:



I would normally direct you to the link so you can download the entire podcast, but it has disappeared. So, I took the liberty of uploading the 53 meg hour-long podcast to my cloud storage thing. I strongly urge Christians to download it and begin listening at about the 15 minute 55 seconds mark (you'll skip some technical problems). Click here for the download link.

We received a veiled threat message at The Question Evolution Project, and is somewhat alarming in light of Matt's observations. The screenshot has a big white space, sorry:


Screenshot taken from my Page, but I'm still insisting that Fair Use applies.

To take this a step further, people can lose their jobs for being creationists. One of the most recent instances as I write this is regarding Mark Armitage. He did his job and did it well, but was fired for being a Christian. Dr. Ben Scripture discusses the case, look for the audio series beginning on "8/14/14", click on "Scripture on Creation". Here is a short video:



Things are rough, and going to get rougher. We need to be able to defend the faith with greater fervor and skill, but also remembering that it is not our wisdom that brings someone to a saving knowledge of Christ, but the Holy Spirit. Our job is to make our best effort to share the truth. The best effort is to use and improve our thinking skills so we can present the gospel more effectively, and to be able to reason from (and rely on!) Scripture. Until Christ returns, we must stay faithful to our calling.

Do Lunar Helium Measurements Threaten Creation Science?


Helium was detected on the moon during solar eclipses. There are claims that helium-3 is too abundant for the young universe models of biblical creationists, but there are problems with these claims. One is that it is rather difficult to actually measure. Another is that there are many assumptions involved. A third problem is that several factors that can lead to an abundance of He-3 are not taken into account by evolutionists, and the amount of helium on the moon is not a problem for creation science.
Helium-3 arises from the radioactive decay of tritium, a ‘heavy’ isotope of hydrogen containing one proton and two neutrons. Through beta decay one of the neutrons in the nuclei emits an electron and is converted into a proton; thus the new atomic nuclei has two protons and one neutron turning an isotope of hydrogen into an isotope of helium (31H → 32He + e). This decay process has a half-life of about 12.3 years. Helium-3 also arises from complex nuclear processes in the sun and the sun’s corona involving interaction between protons, deuterium and alpha particles, and the products can be emitted in relatively high concentrations from powerful solar flare events.3 In the depth of the earth, He-3 may arise from the radioactive decay of lithium-6.

Varieties of Evolutonists

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Experiences, observations and material that I have have read brought me to these speculations. With more time, reading and experience, I may adjust some of them later.

Some people will play with semantics, claiming that the word "evolutionist" is something contrived by creationists in an effort to malign proponents of evolution. Their "sources" for such an accusation are anti-creationist sites that simply make the assertion without evidence. The word evolutionist is indeed a valid word that gives a useful description, so I see no need to change my use of it.

Vehement anti-creationists
Having an online ministry brings out people who hate biblical creationists who will seek our Websites, Weblogs, social media areas and so on. They will lash out at us with assertions and ridicule (often calling us "liars" and "science deniers") because we disagree with naturalistic and atheistic interpretations of scientific evidence.

Example of bigotry and intolerance by irrational atheist. Have I just been threatened?
Fair use for educational purposes.


Many of these people are unable to construct a rational discussion, being content to rely on emotional reactions. Some ministries and creationist organizations will simply move on, because we have our work to do and cannot spend time with people who want to be vituperative. My belief is that they want to justify their hatred of and rebellion toward God, and attack the foundations of biblical doctrine. Most of these are atheists, but unfortunately some "religious" people join in.

Theistic evolutionists and Old Earth Creationists (OECs)
These reject the plain reading of Scripture, saying that a "literal" reading is ridiculous. However, creationists are not woodenly literal. We use the historical-grammatical approach like people do every day whether reading the Bible or other things. TEs and OECs insist on adding to the Bible and making it say things that are not there, as well as finding excuses to reject the six-day creation week. Why they join in with atheists in ridiculing those of us who believe the Scriptures as they are written is puzzling, but I suspect it is because they want to look intelligent in the eyes of the world. Ultimately, they deny the authority of the Scriptures that many claim to believe and rely on for their salvation.

Uninformed evolutionists
This heading is not intended to sound insulting or condescending. The fact is, people have evolution shoved down their throats at every turn. Government-run schools misrepresent evidence against evolution and supporting creation or Intelligent Design, use deceptive textbooks, suppress evidence against evolution, or they simply ignore it. They indoctrinate people into evolutionary thinking in this manner. The "good parts" that sound good to the indoctrinated are continually presented. So, what choice do they have except to believe it?



Sometimes they become curious about this creation science stuff that they've heard about and want to learn more. They start to investigate our side of the story, and begin to realize that important information has been withheld; creation science and ID are not the realm of "fundies", and do have scientific evidence.

These people may react with jeers at first, but we hope that they will take the time to read and honestly consider the material. In addition, we want them to see that a materialistic worldview is fatally flawed and self-refuting. Biblical creationists are straightforward about the fact that we use the Bible as our ultimate starting point instead of naturalistic presuppositions, and we want people to not only see that science is on our side, but ultimately to come to salvation through Jesus Christ.

Conclusion
The humanistic worldview is based on rebellion against God, elevating man over his Creator. It is an appeal to pride that goes back to the Garden of Eden, where Satan planted seeds of doubt with Eve, "Did God really say...?" From there, he went to an appeal to pride by insulting God and saying, "Your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God" (see Genesis 3 for the full account). Indeed, Satan was cast out of Heaven because of pride, and he appeals to pride even today to tempt man to reject God.

Evolution is the humanistic (atheistic) way to reject God and the authority of his written Word. It may come through complete atheism, or through compromising religious people. Those of us in creation ministries desire to show that God is the Creator, the Bible is true, science supports creation and biblical young earth models, and ultimately hope that people will come to faith in Jesus Christ.
