Beavers and Amazing Engineering

Image
Engineering requires training, the study of accumulated knowledge, and more. It also needs people to pass along their knowledge so others can continue the work, and to develop new systems. The Master Engineer has given many of his creatures engineering skills from birth. It would be nonsensical to order an engineer to build something but not furnish the proper equipment. Beavers are in many areas of the Northern Hemisphere, and are considered a keystone species  because of their strong impact on their ecosystems. They have been given skills and equipment to do their work. Henry J. Johnson , 1880 via Copyright Expired Beavers build dams, when in turn benefits an ecosystem. (Unfortunately, these big rodent engineers do not consult with the local residents, and can become pests at times.) The world's largest beaver dam is in Canada, and can be seen from space! They make their homes — lodges — comfortable and safe from predators. I read that they are installing satellite dish receive

Paleomagnetism and Biblical Archaeology

Image
People have attempted to discredit the historical records of the Bible for centuries. Many times, they have used the fallacious argument from silence that there is not archaeological evidence for certain people or events, so they never happened. The Bible has been repeatedly vindicated. Radiocarbon dating has also been used to deny Scripture. We have seen many times that radiometric dating has serious flaws (including calibration), but when the results fit the needs of the secular science industry, they are accepted. Paleomagnetism provides a calibration tool. Holes in dolerite made by cores being drilled. As the rock cooled and solidified iron became fixed in an orientation with the Earth's magnetic field. This can be read to find out where this part of Scotland lay relative to the poles at the time the rock solidified.

Evolutionists Congratulate Themselves over Weak Research

Image
A few days ago, I took the buckboard into town for supplies. There was a cacophony over at the saloon and I stopped to see what was happening. At first, I thought it was payday at the Darwin Ranch, but no. I flagged down Al Buehterawl, and when he caught his breath, he said the ranch hands got a bonus for conducting science research. It involved the alleged Chicxulub asteroid impact, dinosaur extinction, and microfossils. Also present was pride in storytelling. Asteroid And Earth image credit: FreeDigitalPhotos.net /  Idea go The well-heeled secular science industry keeps getting tax money and grants to find ways to proclaim the universe is billions of years old, evolution is true, and there is no reason to believe in the Creator. Once again, research seems woefully incomplete. But making their claims seem sciency and convincing to the public makes everything okay. Circular reasoning abounds, especially in assuming the timing of the asteroid impact. Biases were confirmed with selective

Throwing Stones at Barking Distractions

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Day in and day out, people are bushwhacked by assumptions of minerals-to-manicurist evolution. It is presupposed by the secular science industry, so all their observations are made wearing Darwin spectacles . From there, the obedient lapdog science press, movies, television, science documentaries, friends and neighbors all talk evolution. Many people are not even aware that creation science exists. Instead of forcing the atheistic naturalism narrative on the observed evidence , biblical creationists seek to honor God and uphold the authority of Scripture. Background image: Unsplash / Angelo Carniato Creation ministries large and small, as well as individuals, try to make their views known. There's a prairie schooner-full of linked articles available, as well as numerous books, videos, and other materials available. Much of this is free. Of course, we must contend with angry atheists (because evolution is foundational to atheism) and fundamentalist evolutionis

Hot Jupiter is Really Jumping

Image
For decades, governmental and private organizations have been studying space. Some of it was politically motivated at first, but these days, it is primarily in support of atheistic naturalism. Since there is no room for God in that worldview, they dreamed up their own creation mythologies. The current mythology, a highly-Frankensteined Big Bang, continually needs to be patched, repaired, and propped up. One result of the Big Bang is the formation of planets, weakly explained by the best-of-the-worst ( Best-in-Field Fallacy ) accretion theory. Most exoplanets are hostile witnesses. Artist's conception of a hot Jupiter,  NASA / ESA / G. Bacon (STScI) (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) Technology has advanced greatly, so the detection of extra-solar planets has become rather commonplace. Even amateur astronomers are doing it. However, from cosmic to biological evolution and everything between, speculations are not supported by evidence. TOI-2109b is, like other hot

Forensic Anthropology and Darwinian Racism

Image
Although evolutionists try to distance themselves from their racist past, it has been a serious problem since the Bearded Buddha published his tomes. Not all of the public has been fooled by denials of evolution supports. Elements of racism in evolutionary studies are found even today. An area that could be severely damaged is forensic anthropology. (The television show Bones was loosely based on a real forensic anthropologist, portrayed by Emily Deschanel.) Forensic anthropology can be used to determine a victim's race. Skeletons in the' Boat Houses', Herculaneum, Flickr / Big Albert (Public Domain) If enough material is present, forensic anthropologists can determine with a high degree of accuracy the size, sex, and other details regarding the victim. This is where we clarify something: God created only one race. There are no "races", but the term is used as a convenience despite its flawed evolutionary background. More realistically (and biblically), there ar

Giant Millipede Impedes Evolution

Image
If you head north in England, you will reach the ceremonial county of Northumberland. Find Howick and head for the North Sea. If you go for a stroll, be careful walking on boulders, and watch out for overhangs. Boulders fall. Also watch out for millipedes as big as cars. As big as cars? By length, mayhaps, but not by weight or width. And not living. An incomplete fossil was discovered in one of the aforementioned boulders that fell and broke open. Arthropleura , extinct millipede, model.

They also used guesswork on their deep time and evolutionary presuppositions, but there's no sign of an evolutionary progression from smaller critters. Their speculations raised other questions that went unanswered. What was found is best explained by recent creation, then rapid burial during the Genesis Floo
