Secularist Religious Hypocrisy in Brazil

Since politicians are known to light a shuck out of there when confronted by loud special interest groups, it should be interesting to see how long this lasts. In January of 2020, the administration of Brazil's president appointed a creation advocate for their graduate study programs. Secularists are angry.

Secularists are outraged that Brazil has an official creation advocate for education that has a religious background. However, secularists are religious as well.

Angry, I tell you! The advocate is Benedito GuimarĂ£es Aguiar Neto, and Katie, bar the door, he has a religious background! Worse, he wants to introduce Intelligent Design! First of all, if he's talking about using material from the Intelligent Design movement, they are most certainly not creationists. Don't be riding on ahead of me now and rein in a moment: the ID movement is not creationist, but creationists frequently use intelligent design arguments and examples. You savvy that, pilgrim?

As far as Benedito's qualifications, those are not under consideration. Secularists have a nasty habit of using someone's religion as leverage against them as if that was the primary focus. Here in the United States, religious people in political offices have been attacked, such as questioning John F. Kennedy's Roman Catholicism and his loyalty to the Pope or the Constitution, Mittens Romney's Mormonism, Sarah Palin's religion was in question, and many more.

This is yet another example of the secular science industry inserting itself into leftist political activism.

The hypocrisy comes in because atheism is a religion, whether hiding behind titles like secularist, the gelastic "freethinker" or humanist. (Ironically, Secular Humanism is a religion as well.) We just came off Question Evolution Day, and the atheists and secularists were practically having worship services in the street for "Darwin Day". These owlhoots have their godless religions, but cannot abide by the possiblity that someone who may be "religious" could threaten their dominance of secular indoctrination. Evolution is a foundation for atheistic indoctrination, as we have seen here many times. Like the global warming cultists, secularists get on the prod when their suppression of unpleasant truths is threatened by contrary facts.
The Science article begins by addressing “the encroachment of religion on science and education policy.” Non-evolutionists maintain there is already plenty of religion masquerading as science in public schools—including Brazil. For example, because a Creator is ignored, then it is taught (or inferred) that everything somehow came from nothing in a big explosive event. That is an overtly religious position, because one must have a substantial measure of faith to believe that something can come from nothing.

Let Me Be Polystrate With You

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

As we have seen, there are numerous problems with particles-to-paleontologist evolution as well as deep-time dogma. Rusty Swingset and his crew at the Darwin Ranch get mighty ornery about all the discoveries of soft tissues and other remnants, but many people overlook polystrate fossils.

Evidence against deep time and supporting the Genesis Flood is plentiful. Polystrate fossils also support the Flood but are often forgotten.

You may want to save this article for reference. Creationists have used polystrate fossils for many years as evidence for the Genesis Flood. Most commonly used are vertical trees in rock layers, often coal seams.

"B-b-b-but Cowboy Bob! We have Wikipedia, Propaganda Talk Origins, strong opinions, and other excuses!"

Like geological theories, rescuing devices and "explanations" for polystrate fossils are contrived. Cognate on it for a spell. The layers are alleged to be millions of years in the making but the tree was considerate enough to stay put and let layers form around it, never mind shifting and other geologic activity. The tree should have broken apart and essentially become unrecognizable. Uniformitarian conjectures (gradual processes over long periods of time) fail.

Did y'all know that it's not just a few trees that appear like this? Maybe if there were just a couple of trees, it would be reasonable to say that further research needs to be done and then move on. Nope. There are many polystrate fossils, and they're not just a few trees. Genesis Flood models from biblical creationists make sense of observed evidence.

Now I'm going to turn you over to Real Science Radio. (As usual, I caution you to avoid Bob Enyart's open theism stuff, but the Real Science Radio section has strong creation science evidence.) There are three recorded broadcasts of about half an hour each The first broadcast linked also has a huge article that has material that would challenge secularists to wave off. As usual, the audio to which I link is free to download or listen online.

The first one with the article is "RSR's List of the Kinds of Polystrate Fossils".
Second, we have a recording plus another article, but this one is shorter, at "RSR's Polys Pt. 2". We conclude with "RSR's Polys Pt. 3". The article with this recording is a duplicate of the previous one. Also, the video below has some interesting points for your edification.

The RubisCO Enzyme and Evolution

Believers in universal common ancestry evolution are known to appeal to dysteleology, which is essentially saying that the Creator fouled things up. Such feckless arguments are primarily based on personal preference and often include a fundamental lack of knowledge of the object in question. Fore example, the RubisCO enzyme.

Arguing from an assumption of evolution as well as personal preference, the RubisCO enzyme is said to be evidence against creation. Look more closely.

This is evosplained as "inefficient" by people who lack sufficient knowledge of the subject. The enzyme is slow compared to other internal mechanisms, and is one of the earliest to have evolved (evidence not required, just assume). In reality, it is more effective than those who deny the work of the Master Engineer want to admit.
One of our readers, J.D. from the U.S., asked us a question about the efficiency of the RubisCO enzyme, which takes part in plant respiration:
Hello! So, a certain person I interact with claims that RubisCO, an enzyme in the body, is ‘proof’ that evolution is true, because of its rather poor efficiency and its tendency to accidentally use oxygen instead of carbon dioxide. He says this shows that evolution has selected what works, instead of a well-designed system. Of course, this is patent nonsense; all the other irrefutable evidences show that this argument is fallacious somewhere. I was only able to find one paragraph on the subject in your website, and it did not satisfactorily answer the question: how is he incorrect, and why did God make the enzyme so seemingly poorly?
CMI-US’s Dr Matthew Cserhati responds:

Apophis, Asteroid of Doom?

Watchers of the skies have some rather sophisticated equipment, and they detected 99942 asteroid Apophis in 2004. This bad boy is named after the Egyptian deity of chaos and darkness, an enemy of the sun god Ra. Fearmongers are saying that it fits Bible prophesy and will strike Earth.

There is some concern about asteroid Apophis striking Earth in 2029 as a part of Bible prophesy. This idea fits neither the Bible nor science.
Credit: NASA / JPL-Caltech
The chances of impacting our blue marble in 2029 were small at first, and NASA ruled it out later on. (There are uncertainties in tracking these distant things.) Some people may be able to see it as it makes its pass then, and the chance of an impact in 2036 are also ruled out. When you have someone saying that everyone else is wrong and he is the one to believe, recalculate with his standards, scientists ignored him.

Still, people want to sell books. We saw that before with previous predictions and false prophesies involving blood moons, global warming, CERN, end-of-the-world date setting (biblical numerology), and so on, and books did indeed sell. People like the sensationalistic stuff, but they seem to lack knowledge of both Scripture and science. Apophis is not a problem, and we know that our Creator is sovereign. Now we can let astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner discuss this further:
There has been some recent interest in the asteroid 99942 Apophis and its close encounter with earth expected in 2029. When discovered in 2004, the preliminary orbit for Apophis indicated that it might crash onto earth on April 13, 2029 (yes, that is a Friday). However, as is always the case, follow-up observations improved our knowledge of the orbit. We now know that Apophis will pass close very close to the earth that day, but it will miss. How close will Apophis come? Its closest approach will be about 20,000 miles (about one-tenth of the distance between the earth and the moon). Apophis’ longest dimension is nearly 1,500 feet. No object of such size is known to have passed that close to the earth. When nearest to the earth, Apophis ought to appear as a third magnitude star moving about 40 degrees per hour. It would be quite a sight for people with moderately dark skies that night.

Naturalism and Question Evolution Day

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Riders for the Darwin brand are usually committed to and presuppose naturalism, the belief that natural laws and processes are the only things that exist, as their foundation. Naturalism is essentially an atheistic view, so this is something with which we must contend on Question Evolution Day.

We see that evolutionists generally presuppose naturalism. From this they interpret evidence or even manipulate it to fit their views.

QED is an existential threat to those who try to suppress intellectual and academic freedoms, as well as freedoms of speech and thought. Militant Darwinists who are riding herd do not tolerate their folks expressing doubt about evolution. Some who are safely established have done so, but they still imperil their careers and reputations in the secular science industry and academic institutions. Who will they please, and at what cost (Mark 8:26)?

Although there are secular scientists who have not heard of creation science and are taught to believe that evolution is the only possible view of origins, there are also militant evolutionists who promote their worldview at practically any cost. This includes ignoring the hard truth about fossils that are out of order (according to their schemes) and even denying that the fossil "record" has any problems.

Thanks to Why?Outreach for the graphic
As we have seen numerous times, the issue of origins is not strictly about evidence. If that were the case, there would be no evolutionists. The commitment of the secular science industry to naturalism and materialism makes it difficult to get an evolutionist to consider the truth of creation — especially when they are manipulating the data to help them justify their rebellion against their Creator. Here are two related articles on this subject.
Because Darwinism is built on philosophical naturalism, evidence can be moved around as needed.

Evolutionists never seem worried about out-of-place fossils. Why is that? The reason is that the philosophy of naturalism is the driving force that keeps Darwinism going. Darwinians think like this: (1) Naturalism must be our worldview. (2) Darwinism seems to be the best theory within naturalism. (3) If problems are found in Darwinism, there isn’t any competition, so we can just shuffle parts of the story around. This non-falsifiable strategy allows them to believe in the Popeye Theory of Evolution (17 Aug 2019), the Cambrian explosion, and any other rearrangement as long as naturalism is preserved. Even a Precambrian rabbit could probably be accommodated by a sufficiently talented just-so storyteller.
To finish reading this first article and see the examples, click on "Darwinians Excuse Out-of-Order Fossils". There is one more article linked below.

In addition to indulging in storytelling and manipulating facts, these committed evolutionists will also resort to science of the gaps and evosplain their narrative by simply putting the fossils in the order that they prefer. (Of course, no consideration of the reality of the Genesis Flood is allowed.) Recent chicanery includes rewriting history for how Jurassic dinosaurs made their way from Africa to Europe, evolution went at full gallop after dinosaur extinction, the spines of mammals showed evolutionary changes — yep, naturalists play fast and loose to convince folks that their story is true and God was nowhere to be found. Assuming evolution to prove evolution is circular reasoning, old son. To read about all this, click on "Shoving Fossils Onto Darwin’s Timeline".

First Degree Atheopathy

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

While we want to reach people with honest inquiries and remove stumbling blocks on Question Evolution Day, those of us who spend any amount of time discussing biblical creation science online encounter furious atheopaths (see atheopath definition in footnote 1, here) and militant Darwinists. While pretending to be harbingers of science and reason, they frequently display little knowledge of either.

When atheists and other anti-creationists want to slap leather with us, they seldom display knowledge of the subject. Such bad logic can be used against them.

Critics of Christianity, the Bible, biblical creation, and so on use social media when they seek to slap leather with us. They know that God exists (Romans 1:18-23. Psalm 14:1, Proverbs 1:7) and presuppose philosophical naturalism. I fully believe that they are intent on validating their rebellion against God and biblical authority (Job 40:8). If someone holds a position that they dislike, the positions are misrepresented; the person is called an idiot and a liar, but they only succeed in displaying their own corruption. As I have said many times, some tinhorns refuse to distinguish between lying and disagreement: if you say something they dislike, you're a liar. 

It is not surprising to find an atheopath who displays vitriol from the safety of a computer keyboard, acting like ridicule somehow proves atheism right and gives them the intellectually superior position. Ironically, atheism as only harmed humanity while Christians are doing the heavy lifting by building hospitals, spearheading relief efforts, and much more.

Click for larger. Count the fallacies. Feel the bigotry.
Those who claim to be "former Christians" seldom exhibit knowledge of theology, and can be unmasked by Christians who actually know and believe the Bible. When creation is attacked, they appeal to their own opinions, baseless assertions, the tendentious "authority" of uninformed and often anonymous sources, outdated material, and so on. Indeed, knowledgeable creationists often have to correct them!

For example, one tinhorn was so desperate to cling to his faith, he provided the long-refuted story of horse evolution as "evidence":

It is not uncommon for angry atheists and evolutionists to attack by machine-gunning a list of objections and complaints (Bill Nye used this stunt in his debate with Ken Ham) and the fallacy of elephant hurling. It is almost amusing that those who pretend to be more intelligent than creationists will consistently display lack of thinking skills, and their "refutations" read like boilerplate material from the Darwin Ranch and Atheopathy Excuses Warehouse. The article linked below illustrates that we do not have to roll over and play dead, and that some complaints of atheists can be used to refute their own incoherent religion.
This week’s feedback is an example of the uninformed misotheistic elephant hurling that we normally don’t publish because it breaks our feedback rules. But we wanted to show the sort of thinking out in cyberspace, and also show that there are good answers to objections to Christianity. The response shows that Christianity has provided the foundation for science, alleviation of poverty and rejection of superstition.

Evolutionists Disliking Lichens

We have probably seen lichens in many places in various forms, but tend to pay them no nevermind. Some resemble houseplants, but they are far more complex and have baffled scientists for many years. They are actually different organisms that comprise individual entities.

Lichens are far more complex than evolutionists thought, and their symbiotic relationships thwart Darwinian beliefs.

In the television show Stargate SG-1, there was a complicated storyline involving Symbiotes, creatures that had humans as hosts but also gave them strength and healing. However, these things were wicked and took over the hosts' personalities. This is similar to a view that the symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae consisted of the fungus dominating the algae. This is not the case.

Despite the view of Darwin and his followers that organisms competed, there are many living things in symbiotic relationships — all the way to the beneficial microorganisms living on and in each of us. Lichens not only show symbiosis, but they shock evolutionists by displaying a relationship that the Master Engineer designed them to have.
Lichens resemble plants or fungi, with elaborate branches like ocean coral, tiny cup-like structures, or leaf-like fronds. They can be found growing in forests, deserts, arctic tundra, or even in your backyard on rocks or walls. And contrary to hundreds of years of overly simplistic speculation as to what lichens might be, scientists are surprised to find they’re actually complex multi-creature systems consisting of up to four different organisms.
