Fast Talking in Evolutionary Presentations

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

And now for something completely different. For a long time, it was said that "pictures don't lie". That's not so true, especially if someone gets some photo editing happening, such as the imaginative material seen here if you scroll down. Even without editing trickery, some impressive illusions can be created using lines, colors, and shading. 3-D effects are impressive.

Let's move on to a different kind of illusion. My wife got me interested in a television program on the truTV cable network called The Carbonaro Effect, which is a hidden camera "magic" show where Michael Carbonaro plays comedic illusion pranks on people in various settings. I do not believe there are any camera tricks involved. The individual segments are usually very brief, and I haven't seen him do the same trick twice. Carbonaro is extremely talented and personable, and very skilled in sleight-of-hand and fast talking to "explain" the illusions. He utilizes the Making Stuff Up™ principle found in molecules-to-magician science.

Michael Carbonaro would make a great evolutionary scientist. If you study on it, evolutionary scientists often present "theories" and models that include maybe, perhaps, scientists think, probably — and many conjectures — that are presented as experimental science. They sound good and get published in scientific journals, but they are not actual science. Nope, they're illusions sold with fast talking, old son. Whether creation or evolution, historical science attempts to reconstruct events in the past. Biblical creation science has the advantage of the only eye witness what happened in the Bible. Another advantage creationary scientists have is that, when evolutionary and long age conjectures are set aside, the evidence supports creation science far better than it supports uniformitarian and evolutionary speculations.
