Fear and Loathing of Dinosaur Research by Evolutionists

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen, with research by David Harrison

This is a great time to be a biblical creationist! Science supports creation and is hostile to evolution, even though Darwin's ranch hands get all het up about the facts and conjure up train loads of fact-free excuses.

Some of the more recent events include:
  • The refutation of "junk" DNA (which creationists predicted was not junk at all, and were proved right)
  • The magnetic fields of several planets fit creationist predictions while evolutionary predictions were astronomically (heh!) wrong
  • Uninformed remarks by C. Richard Dawkins and others about "bad design" have been refuted
  • Carbon-14 where it "doesn't belong", such as coal, diamonds, and so forth
  • The amazing complexity of biology, down to the cellular level
  • Stars and galaxies convolute "deep time" cosmology
  • Various planets, their moons (as well as our own), and other things in the solar system are not acting "old", but instead evidence a young solar system
  • Neanderthals were fully human, even interbreeding with "modern" humans
  • "Lucy" is losing status as a transitional form to our supposed evolutionary past
  • Evidence that dinosaurs have not been extinct for alleged millions of years, and have lived with humans
  • It just keeps getting better
Evolutionists are often hostile to scientists who present evidence that refutes their dogmas. Also, scientific evidence is being suppressed, especially regarding soft tissues in dinosaurs.

We're going to focus on the recent dinosaur discoveries. I posted some links a spell back about dinosaurs in the Bible, and more recently, I listened to a podcast where David Harrison of Spark Light Ministries [1] was interviewed by Michael Boehm of Youth Apologetics Training [2] regarding dinosaur soft tissues as well as historical evidence of man and dinosaurs co-existing. I made a link to two articles on biblical dinosaur articles as well as the two-part podcast [3]. The discussion was very interesting, and there were a couple of things for which I asked if Mr. Harrison's documentation was handy. (In interviews and discussions like this, people don't tend to keep supporting links nearby.) It turns out that David went to a lot of work and gave me a wagon load of information.

One question I had was about his remark that Mary Schweitzer has been ostracized because of the dinosaur soft tissues work, even though she's an evolutionist. I reckon he's right. From a "Discover" article:
Rhetoric like this has put Schweitzer at the center of a raging cultural controversy, because she is not just a pioneering paleontologist but also an evangelical Christian. That fact alone has prompted some prominent paleontologists to be even more skeptical about her scientific research. [4]
From the anti-creationist, Bible-compromising "Biologos" site:
Finding soft tissues that responded to our tests like modern materials in many ways, suggested that after three hundred years of looking at this stuff, we don’t know as much as we thought. It’s also hard because, being a Christian evolutionary biologist, I receive a lot of mail that is not fun—fellow Christians suspect my faith, and scientific colleagues suspect my science. But I have no agenda, except to produce data. [5]
Creation Ministries International (CMI) had this to say:
But so entrenched is the evolutionary paradigm in the scientific community, that it soon became known that Dr Schweitzer was having trouble getting her results published. “I had one reviewer tell me that he didn’t care what the data said, he knew that what I was finding wasn’t possible,” says Schweitzer. “I wrote back and said, ‘Well, what data would convince you?’ And he said, ‘None.’” [6]
An article at Smithsonian.com included this bit of hostility toward her work:
“The reason it hasn’t been discovered before is no right-thinking paleontologist would do what Mary did with her specimens. We don’t go to all this effort to dig this stuff out of the ground to then destroy it in acid,” says dinosaur paleontologist Thomas Holtz Jr., of the University of Maryland. “It’s great science.” [7]
No bones about it, since scientific discoveries did not comport with evolutionary dogma, Schweitzer isn't exactly welcome in the saloon at the Darwin ranch. For that matter, evolutionists were hostile to the work of Mark Armitage on dinosaur soft tissues [8, 9]. Can't let the facts get in the way of promoting the state religion of humanism, which is built on evolution, can we? After all, if dinosaurs lived recently, then many old-earth speculations get stampeded off a cliff.

We can hope that Mary Schweitzer will reconsider her evolutionary views and realize that the evidence, including her own, supports recent creation.

Remember that I said there were two things I asked David Harrison about? Of course you do, readers here are bright and pay attention. Anyway, the second question was about how dinosaur soft tissue research is censored in the United States. It wouldn't surprise me if those owlhoots pulled stunts like that. Yep, they did.

Here is a quote from CMI.
The researchers seem to be associated with Catholic creationist groups, which have reported the conference earlier and more vocally than evangelical creationists. One of these reports states that afterwards, “the abstract was removed from the conference website by two chairmen because they could not accept the findings. Unwilling to challenge the data openly, they erased the report from public view without a word to the authors or even to the AOGS officers, until after an investigation. It won’t be restored.” [10]
In addition to censorship, the British Humanist Association uses a straw man fallacy to ridicule creationists [11]. Not surprising, since bigotry and censorship against creationary scientists is rampant [12]. For those inclined to dig deeper, here is a PDF, "Censorship of Information on Origins" [13]. It's typical of those who live by a "survival of the fittest" worldview to lie that creationists do not publish in scientific journals [14].

Seems to me that it's a reasonable conclusion to make that Darwinistas are afraid because more and more evidence supports biblical creation and refutes evolution. They need to wake up and stop suppressing the truth (Rom. 1:18-10). God judged the world once with the Flood, and he's coming back. The final Judgment will be with fire (2 Peter 3:7). Where will you be on that day?
