Desperately Seeking Evolutionary Fish Legs

Image
Many people are familiar with the fish outline emblem that many Christians have on their autos, shirts, sites, and so forth. Proponents of universal common ancestor evolution have their versions as well, used to mock Christians. The most common of these is the fish with legs (some have "Darwin" stylistically imposed in them). This implies, "I don't believe in God the Creator, I believe in science !" They promote their views religiously. There are some problems with the "Darwin fish" idea. Most notably, it began before there was anything to present as evidence for the mythology that life began in the sea, a fish flopped onto land, developed legs, and began evolving into the many critters we have today, as well as humans. They believe in the walking fish thing despite lack of evidence.  That's not science, Skippy, that's blind faith. Here we go again. I have to take us on a side trail for a few moments, so just ride along for a spell. There

Western Australia and the Genesis Flood

Image
Critics of Genesis Flood geology base their complaints on uniformitarian processes, and most seem unwilling to consider what creationary scientists have to present. I have even seen some owlhoots that claim that there are no models for Flood geology, while at the same time refusing to examine models that have been presented. Essentially, biblical creationists are wrong because evolution. After all, Darwin's philosophies require deep time, and scoffers don't cotton to evidence for the recent creation and the global Flood. They just "know" that biblical creationists are wrong. No logic nor education needed. Credit: NASA (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) I reckon the best way to test a model is to see if it can deal with observed data. Australia is, according to Ray Comfort, an island off the coast of New Zealand. (Well, I  think that's funny.) Although an island, it is the smallest continent, "small" being relative, because it'

Wisdom Teeth are not Evidence of Evolution

Image
There are several things that are considered vestigial structures (or organs ) ,  which are essentially remnants of our alleged molecules-to-man evolutionary past. Part of this is because secular scientists presume Darwinism, and do not consider that the Master Engineer created organisms, and the parts therein, for specific purposes. Instead, they assume that if they cannot determine a purpose, then it must be leftover junk. Not hardly! Credit: Pixabay / StockSnap Evolutionists have embarrassed themselves and misled the public about the appendix , tonsils were routinely removed, parts of the genome that were not understood were called "junk" DNA , and so on. Also, wisdom teeth. Those have been removed many times, but it is often an unnecessary surgery. via GIPHY There can be complications, but I'll allow they are seldom life-threatening. But still, unnecessary surgeries are unethical — albeit profitable. As far as their putative evolutionary past — hang on, t

Sneaky Eugenics Conference

Image
Back in the early 20th century, social Darwinism had a branch of "science" called eugenics. People wanted to be all sciency and stuff, so they accepted this method of evolutionary thinking. Essentially, the "unfit" were forcibly sterilized, or at least strongly discouraged from reporducing. Racist Maggie Sanger started Planned Parenthood to help eliminate black people through abortion. Eventually, Hitler took eugenics to its logical conclusion, which caused folks to shy away from that pseudoscience for a while. Colorized version of the International Eugenics Conference logo But since evil Darwinian thinking persists, eugenics never completely went away. Some owlhoots try to deny social Darwinism, and even make up their own "facts":   This is the opposite of the truth. Liar? Uninformed? Anxious to contradict the st00pid creationist? My vote is the first and third: lying, and desiring to contradict. Especially since he deleted the Tweet after I

Secularists Still Confounded over Moon Origins

Image
Know why adherents of long ages have so many speculations about the origins of the moon? Because none of them work. An idea gets the limelight for a while, gets shot down, someone dreams up a new lunar origin story and leads a cavalry charge to promote it, then that fizzles as well. After the scenario happens a few times, secular scientists try to prop up the best of the hypotheses that failed previously. Silvery Moonlight , John Atkinson Grimshaw, 1882 The most popular view is that our moon was formed by an impact in the thrilling days of yesteryear, according to Darwinist time and assumptions. Even though water was found in lunar rocks , the impact concept was still embraced. The whole thing requires a bit of dealing from the bottom of the deck , but the impact thing still fails. Any cosmic evolution idea fails because none of them deal with the facts. Truth is, the solar system was created relatively recently, and the evidence is a far better fit for the facts. Science buil

Origin of the Terms "Operational" and "Historical" Science

Image
Seems that some advocates of universal common ancestor evolution get on the prod and feel the urge to contradict almost anything a biblical creationists or Intelligent Design proponent has to say. Some, although uneducated, will even argue with evolutionary scientists who agree with creationists (such as the owlhoot who refuses reasons that neither side of the origins controversy expects dinosaur fossils in the Grand Canyon. Interesting that the demoniac who continually attacks creationists on that matter does not challenge evolutionists). They must contradict and attack, it's who they are and what they do. Gotta protect that Darwinian death cult, don'tcha know. Similarly, if you disagree with an atheist's arbitrary assertions and definitions of "reality" (long ages, no God, evolution, etc.), expect to be ridiculed. Not only your intelligence, but your morality as well: you are lying to distort reality. They can't defend their positions further than "

Mice Exhibit Gene Control Design

Image
We have been seeing how Darwin and his followers have been using externalism , saying that external forces cause change in living things. They have it wrong. Taking the perspective that organisms are designed to change by the Master Engineer all the way down to genetics and epigenetics . Additional support for this view comes from analysis of the way mice digest food.  Credit: Freeimages / Kym Parry Some detailed research on the squeaky little critters' innards was conducted and led to some interesting results. "Epigenetic markers" work outside the genetic code, and show that these switches operate even with environmental changes. This adds to our knowledge that creatures were designed to adapt to continue to live in a changing world. Darwin proposed that evolution happens externally, that the environment shapes organisms. But a growing amount of evidence suggests the opposite: Most changes happen because the organisms themselves sense, and react to, the environm

"Junk" DNA Similar to Computer Memory?

Image
One trait that atheists and evolutionists have when encountering information regarding intelligent design (especially from biblical creationists) is to ignore it and attack. For example, a recent post about the follies of secular astronomical predictions was ignored by an uneducated tinhorn who wanted to be smarter than everyone else in the room — he wanted to talk about an asteroid instead. Similarly, we get challenged at The Question Evolution Project by atheopaths who ignore the content of the posts, change the subject and (wait for it...) attack. It's who they are and what they do. As we shall see, this kind of thing happens in professional circles as well as from social media nitwits. The book Contested Bones dealt with, well, bones. Three pages of it involved other failures of evolution. What's a fundamentalist Darwinoid to do except ignore the majority of the text and attack those three pages? Sure, that's how scientific discourse works in the secular world n

Refuting the "Jesus was an Alien" Story

Image
Didn't plan it this way, but this post fits in with the recent article on catching bad arguments in a video, and thinking critically.  Every once in a while, someone goes into the weird stories corral and trots out the story that Jesus was able to do those healings because he was an alien. While he did cross some regional borders, I mean alien as in from outer space. This idea is usually found among New Age enthusiasts, and they have a passel of aliens in their worldviews. If you study on it, you'll notice that these beings claim to be more highly evolved, and traveled from way up yonder to our planet to show us the way. That way involves throwing away the Bible and believing what they say about Jesus and the coming world religion. For them, Jesus is not God the Son, the Creator, the second person of the Trinity. They "prove" their claim by assuming it (circular reasoning), and have lousy evidence. Their reasoning is sorely lacking as well. Aliens, the invisi

Aliens Among Us and Evolutionary Propaganda

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Did you know that aliens have visited us in the past, and are among us now, but we don't know it? It has to be true because I saw it on YouTube. (I also obtained from there proof the earth is flat and life evolved from a primordial scum.) Some people are gullible, and this can be seen when they want to prove evolution, and have evidence of imaginary invisible friends from outer space. Put fake news in video format and show the world? Sure, the end justifies the means for some owlhoots. Credit: Pixabay / LionFive Here is where I get into some critical thinking with y'all. Ask yourself some questions, such as, "If space aliens are such a secret, how does the video maker know?" From some of the stories about such aliens, you may want to ask, "Why is the video maker still alive, and why wasn't the video and all evidence destroyed?" Some folks don't cotton to having their secrets revealed, after all, so it seems unlikely th

Simple Human Traits are Not Really

Image
Sometimes I wonder if over-simplifying and rushing through a job so it can be called "done" is a symptom of harried, scheduled-to-the-minute Western culture. Repairs on autos, computers, connections, and so on are often incomplete. Proper diagnostics are not performed and necessary questions are not answered. Although saying that something "should not be so" is akin to wishful thinking, I think I am on solid ground when I say that scientific pursuits should be done properly. This is clearly seen when evolutionary scientists do the "rush to market" approach with their pronouncements, especially in the area of genetics. Background image credit: Rgbstock / Tomislav Alajbeg The human genome was examined with selected information and outdated equipment, and it was discovered that scientists were full of hooey regarding "junk" DNA . Worse, the human-chimpanzee genome similarity myth was done with a prairie schooner-load of bad science and circula

Wild Origin of Life Speculations

Image
You would think that the hands at the Darwin Ranch would be too busy with running the propaganda mill, counting up the grant money, and passing off conjectures as scientific research to indulge in peyote gnawing. I mean, some of the downright weird concepts they're coming up with for the origin of life. Facts and science are not included, those cost extra. Credit: Pixabay / ar130405 The origin of life (OOL), chemical evolution, abiogenesis, spontaneous generation, wishful thinking — whatever you want to call it — is scientifically untenable. As we've seen here before, those owlhoots just keep on a-trying. Recent results are getting very, very strange. So, here we go again. via GIPHY How about the hydrocarbon soup out yonder, at Saturn's largest moon? Not hardly! The scientist who came up with this one seems to have forgotten (or never learned) basic chemistry and biology; it won't work, snookums. Or maybe life-based organisms did not originate in water, bu

Pacific Salmon Guidance Systems

Image
One of the most popular kinds of fish that people eat is salmon, but the good stuff is a mite pricey. Worth it, in my view, but you had best be cooking it up proper-like. Other critters like wolves, birds of prey, and bears eat salmon. You have probably seen movies or documentaries of bears scooping fish out of the stream. It is easier when the streams are full of salmon that are heading up to spawn. Adult fall Chinook salmon in the Priest Rapids Hatchery, state of Washington Courtesy of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) The progress of Pacific salmon is fascinating. They are born in streams, grow up in freshwater areas, then move on to the ocean. This means they are able to adapt from fresh to salt water. When it's time to commence spawning, their guidance systems take them to their places of  birth (adapting again to fresh water), spawn, change color, and die. Interestingly, Atlantic salmon do not die right away, bu

Three Gasses Essential for Life

Image
Some of us are old enough to remember, and others listen to classic rock radio stations, when The Sweet had a song in 1978 called "Love is Like Oxygen". They said, "...you get to much, you get too high, not enough and you're gonna die". They are correct that we need just enough oxygen, but the part about love can be disputed. There are three gasses in our atmosphere (and in us to some extent) that are essential for life. They need to be in the correct proportions, too. Credit: Freeimages / dumitru ionut We hear about the "Goldilocks Zone" where, if a planet is in that zone (not too hot, not too cold), then Darwinists consider it a candidate for life to have evolved. There are many more factors involved, but one that seems to be overlooked is atmospheric pressure. If the pressure is wrong, then we cannot breathe. Three gasses are present and under the proper pressure on this planet our Creator has given us, and he engineered them for numerous fun

Evolution, Discrimination, and Freedom from Thought

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen The subject of this post is very fitting for the seventh annual Question Evolution Day , but it is very important for Christians, creationists, Intelligent Design proponents, lovers of intellectual and academic freedoms, and other people. There is some startling information in the main post that will be linked, exposing the blatant hypocrisy of the evolutionary establishment. Although that 1995 article focuses on academia, many of the principles apply to the persecution of Christians, biblical creationists, and others. Since it was written, things have only grown worse, and atheo-fascism is increasing . Students who believe in creation science or Intelligent Design (which is not creation science) are advised to keep mum about their lack of belief in evolutionism lest they be denied advanced degrees. It is difficult for a creationist student to keep his or her integrity and also write an assigned paper on evolution . Indeed, some academics believe that

Sensors Engineered in Living Things

Image
People who have watched or read science fiction are probably familiar with the phrase, "Sensors indicate..." We are all mighty happy that y'all have sensors, but what are they sensing? We have a great deal of information bombarding us constantly, but need to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff; I am using "selective hearing" to ignore the television in the other room at this moment. Credit: Pixabay / Gerd Altmann Charles Darwin focused on externalism , where outside forces supposedly caused organisms to change and evolve into better things. His disciples followed suit, and are constantly trying to wedge facts into their failed conjectures. Doesn't work. via GIPHY The whole heap of speculations would have been more accurate if they had considered internalism , which we have discussed before. Living things are equipped with sensors that were put in place by the Master Engineer, and which defy evolution. Many of them have additional function
