Evolutionists Invoke the Bear Dog

Image
Darwin's disciples stray from their stated beliefs in purposeless evolution by using pantheism and animism , the bear dogs (amphicyonids) were not some kind of aboriginal spirits. Instead, it was a critter that is somewhat underrepresented in the fossil record. Some evolutionists think it was an ancestor of both bears and dogs, although the bear connection is weak, even according to their criteria. Amphicyon ingens reconstruction image credit: Wikimedia Commons /  roman uchytel A couple of writers discussed how dogs and bears shared this alleged common ancestor, and then proceeded to contradict themselves by admitting that there is little or no fossil evidence to support their claims. Fake evolution news in action, that's a mite deceptive, old sons. The fact remains that animals were created to reproduce after their kinds , not to turn into something else. This is what we observe, Yippie ky yay, Darwin! The article cited paleontologist Susumu Tomiya and anatomist Jack

A Fermi Commitment to Snipe Hunting

Image
Yes, the title is a dreadful play on words based on the so-called Fermi Paradox. This concept is based on presuppositions rooted in abiogenesis (life from non-life), atoms-to-aliens evolution, and numbers. There are so many stars out yonder, there has to be life on many planets. Materialists have a firm commitment to the Fermi paradox, but there is not much reason to believe it anymore. Credit: Pixabay /  Enrique Meseguer Yes, I know that there are birds known as snipes, but this kind is not a bird and requires special methods for hunting . That's because the legendary critter is elusive because it doesn't exist. A snipe hunt is nonsensical, but people have fun with it. Searching for space aliens on exoplanets is an expensive waste of time, and doesn't seem to be pleasurable. That's because the Creator put Earth in a special place and did it recently, as well as making man in his own image. Materialists don't cotton to those notions. Interesting that materiali

Wretched Radiometric Dating and the Oldest Color on Earth

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Last week, we had some fun with Wretched Radio , also examining how atheists and evolutionists ridicule Christians and creationists . Today, I have another audio excerpt made into video format from the show, which appears at the end of this post. In this informative and entertaining piece, some problems with radiometric dating and the alleged oldest color on Earth , pink, are discussed. I thought that Todd and Tony would need me to saddle up and ride over there to help them up. That'll be the day! No help needed from this child. They are aware of the scientific principle of Making Things Up™ that Darwin's disciples utilize, and that proponents of deep time use unfounded assumptions. Also, secular scientists presuppose that Earth and the universe are extremely old. The Bearded Buddha (Darwin) requires huge amounts of time for his speculations to work, so his loyal followers do their best to give him all the time in the world. Uniformitarian

Lights Out for Star Formation Ideas

Image
Sometimes we see pictures from deep space that claim to show stars forming, "stellar nurseries", and whatnot. In reality, nobody has ever seen a star form because it takes too many Darwin years. Not that stars are anywhere near as complicated as the cells in our bodies . The "star formation" is not from actual science. Instead, the story drives the presentation of what is observed. Credit: NASA / JPL-Caltech / Univ. of Virginia (Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) As we have seen here many times, indications reveal that the universe is far younger than naturalists want to admit. They still saddle up to ride for the evolution brand, preferring bad science and frustration to giving the Creator his due. Yes, I said frustration. Those speculations about how stars form and keep going need to be revised. Again. Distant galaxies have stars that "should not" be there because those stars are too young to be in old galaxies. Risible ideas of yo

A Biblical Approach to Physiology

Image
When you need to shoe a horse , you get some basic tools to do the job. The shoe itself was made and given the proper shape through some other tools. Those tools can be considered simple, but they are designed to work together for the purpose of shooing. Credit: Unsplash / Everton Vila Another example is the bicycle. It has a drivetrain that transfers power from pedaling via chain and gears to the wheels, the rider steers the contraption (sometimes at comparatively high speeds) with handlebars, has a saddle that is supposed to be adjusted to optimal height, and brakes. Many of those can be considered machines by themselves, but don't do much good anywhere else. Some tinhorns claim that organisms, Earth, the universe, all have the appearance of design and purpose, but that is not so. Such remarks are assertions of opinion and defy reason. People are designed by the Master Engineer. We can see the specified design and complexity of the ear , the eye , those molecular mach

The Origin of Consciousness

Image
Have you ever thought about thought? More specifically, consciousness? According to Darwinian and other materialistic views, atheists and evolutionists have a passel of problems dreaming up plausible ideas on the origin of consciousness. After all, we are nothing but bundles of chemicals following our impulses. Moments of Thoughtfulness , Charles Sprague Pearce, 1882 For materialists to complain about crimes and other moral outrages that most people find outrageous, they are standing on the Christian worldview instead of being consistent with their own paradigm. Indeed, some of us must be biblical creationists because we are born that way, just like they are materialists. However, it is not possible to be consistent with such a bleak outlook on life. This has tacit admittance when evolutionists attempt to find free will or the soul , which are intangible and related to consciousness. None are housed in the brain, and consciousness itself cannot be explained as something that h

Targeted Changes and Engineered Adaptability

Image
Last month, we looked at " Purposeful Changes and Engineered Adaptability ". Now we're going to see some additional development of the subject. Those advocating fish-to-fool evolution interpret data based on their presuppositions. Fine, we all do that. When they commence to forcing the data to fit the narrative and ignoring or downplaying facts that are none to friendly to their worldview, they are being unscientific and doing some indoctrination. Rocket engines / Freeimages / mike gieson Darwinists get on the prod when creationists point out that their belief in many lucky accidents caused by external stimuli is not supported by evidence. Instead, organisms are engineered to adapt — the ability to change was built in, and it is very specific. There are many examples of adaptations that are baffling to evolutionary paradigms, including blind cave fish , stick spiders , beetles, certain reptiles, and so on.

Secularists Scrying the Origin of Planets

Image
In the metaphysical monstrosities of materialism, secularists are becoming increasingly mystical. No, they are unlikely to come out and admit to having pantheistic views , but we have seen several times how advocates of cosmic-dust-to-cosmologist evolution have views and procedures that would be more at home with fortune tellers than in science. Image composed of elements from Openclipart These owlhoots appeal to evolutionary magick for biology, but change the wording for use with cosmic evolution, and the same procedures apply. Planetologists are, in effect, scrying. That is, they are attempting to receive messages about both the past and the future by gazing on what they call GEMS: glass with embedded metal and sulfides out in space, then they extrapolate on planetary formations. Maybe they can get visions of their invisible imaginary friends in outer space that cannot exist. Of course, they use a passel of circular reasoning by assuming that they "know" certain

Slapping Down Christians and Creationists

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Todd Friel of Wretched Radio had a couple of segments that I wanted to use, so I contacted him for permission. I could have gone the Fair Use route, preferred the direct approach. He gave me the go-ahead, and I'll give you the link to the full episode after the video-style excerpt. On July 16, 2018, Mr. Friel posted on that Twitter thing that Christians should pray for Ken Ham because he is attacked so much: Atheopaths, old earthers, and other owlhoots did the usual piranha thing and swarmed it. Notice the reply just below his message for one example. I was on the prod and challenged the writer: "He deserves it. All of it." Who are YOU to decide that he deserves it? By what standard? Is it because you hate him, and hate God? "Let's try your "reasoning": I lack belief that atheists can use reason, so they deserve lots of ridicule. Howzat work for ya, Skippy? Instead of attempting to explain himself according to his

Creation Science Geology in the Smoky Mountains

Image
Over here in the eastern part of the United States, we have a mountain system called the Appalachians. Actually, part of them reach into Newfoundland, Canada, and down into Alabama. It has several regions or provinces. Here in southeastern New York, the Catskills are a part of the Appalachians. Following the line toward the south, you can reach the Smoky Mountains. Great Smoky Mountains image credit: Wikipedia / Terrill White People who like autumn "color tours" may want to take a drive and visit the national park . You may even want to visit the highest point of the Smokies and the Appalachian Trail, a mountain called Klingon Dome. "That's Clingmans Dome, Cowboy Bob!" via GIPHY But enough of this travelogue. Let's be getting ourselves into some geology. More specifically, creation science geology. Dr. Andrew Snelling wanted to do some firsthand research. Way back when, during the catastrophic plate tectonics of the Genesis Flood, Africa smacke

On the Origin of Agriculture

Image
According to Darwin's disciples, it took a mighty long time for the cycle of evolution to happen all the way up to humanity. Then what? Apparently, our ancestors waited for their paint to dry by doing nothing much besides moving around and doing the occasional cave wall artwork. This is against human nature , and our timeline shows that we suddenly commenced to building things and developing agriculture. The Potato Growers by Jean-Francois Millet For some reason, people were content to be "hunter-gatherers" for thousands of years until someone got the notion to put something in the ground, wait around, and then chow down on what grew. Eventually, farming developed and agricultural sciences. Evolutionists cannot support this mythology, and they are baffled by our agricultural history. via GIPHY In reality, the biblical timeline has the answer. Not only were we created in God's image a few thousand years ago, Adam and Eve were intelligent. Evolution was no

More Rumblings in the Cambrian Explosion

Image
Secular scientists and Darwinian enthusiasts tell us that the fossil record shows a gradual progression of gradual to more complex life forms, from the oldest layers to the more complex (but "graveyards" of jumbled fossils  put burrs under their saddles). One of the most frequent points raised by biblical creationists in support of the global Genesis Flood and recent creation is what is referred to as the  Cambrian Explosion. Credit: Wikimedia Commons /  Mark A. Wilson The Cambrian layer "exploded" with fossils of fully-formed organisms ( including the complex trilobites ), and most of these are plants and marine critters — which fits creation science models. Indeed, many have excellent preservation. Secular geologists naturally operate from their deep time views, and want to know what went on with layers they consider older than Cambrian. Not much happening there. One speculation is that fossilization conditions were not happening in the same way. That rescu

Lymphocytes on Patrol

Image
We are constantly bombarded by microbes — tiny intruders that try to ride roughshod over our health, such as bacteria, viruses, and other things. However, not all are bad, and several are actually necessary (for example, see " Bacteria are Everywhere — Fortunately "). Our Creator has designed several systems within us to police them. Credit: Unsplash / Ben Koorengevel Let's take a look at white blood cells called lymphocytes. They deal with microbes that cause infections, and keep important areas like the lungs tidied up. B lymphocytes are unique in that they actually rearrange their genes for the production of proteins that mark invaders for elimination, and they also keep the good microbes from wandering off into the wrong territories. This is yet another example of Darwin-defying, creation-affirming specified complexity. Lymphocytes are part of the acquired immune system. That means they adapt to new threats and provide defenses we do not have at birth. Lymp

The Construction of Respiration

Image
Ever get awakened by a child crying and say to yourself, "That kid's got a healthy set of lungs"? They are still growing, too. My father could make himself heard from quite a distance, and I inherited that — which paid off when I preached in a big old church that did not have a working amplifier. Image from Clker clipart While lungs are extremely important, they are not the only part of our respiratory system. Indeed, the specified irreducible complexity of the Master Engineer's work confounds the hands at the Darwin Ranch. Ain't no way all the parts can come together through random processes and chance and still have all those intricate functions. With few exceptions, respiration begins with the nose — "Snot locker, Cowboy Bob!" Well, let's sniff around with that aspect. We breathe in our air, exhale carbon dioxide (which plants love and return the favor by making oxygen), and keep cells working through our blood supply. However, there

Bishop Bell and the Dinosaur

Image
An annoyance for proponents of fish-to-fish warden evolutionists and other deep time enthusiasts are accounts of dragons in history . Remember, the word dinosaur had not been invented yet. The Bible also describes some critters that are only known to paleontology nowadays. After all, the Bible is a reliable history book. Spinophorosaurus image credit: Wikimedia Commons / Nobu Tamura ( CC BY 3.0 ) If you get a notion to head to England, then go north, you can find Carlisle Cathedral . (If you reach Lockerbie, you've passed it.) Why? Well, it's ancient, construction was begun in 1122. But for our purposes, there's the easily overlooked tomb of Bishop Richard Bell — it's under a rug in the floor. Etched in the brass are several critters, including some dinosaur-looking beasties. Long necks that look like they're dancing at a hootenanny, or maybe it's a bit of rasslin'. (I'm bringing that last one up because giraffes fight each other with their ne

Brain Plasticity and Me

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen This is a look behind the scenes of The Question Evolution Project. I do not post any old thing for the sake of posting, and I seek useful information to feature or add to my original articles. Several articles and such have been rejected for one reason or another in my screening process (guess that's the best name I can give it). A few were what I considered harmful, or were produced by people who have false biblical teachings. If I must feature something from a doubtful or even bad source, there will be a clear disclaimer or warning. For the post part, I give primary consideration to sources that I can trust. Once in a while, someone wants us to add a horse to our corral by requesting a link to their sites. There was a very strange one a spell back, somebody wanted me to give a link to a fashion site and he thought we would be a good match, and offered me some kind of perks. (Should I become The Fashion Cowboy?) I ignored the letter. He wrote again, a

The Mechanisms of Memory

Image
Sometimes we are frustrated when we forget some things, but if you study on it, we are bombarded with many details, large and small, throughout each day. We can be preoccupied with tasks at hand and hurriedly set our keys in a different place than usual, but paying attention and being mindful can be helpful. On the other hand, things we had forgotten for decades can suddenly come to mind by a subtle prompt. We also have direct prompts, such as setting email reminders in my calendar for my doctor appointment or to schedule a post for a certain day. Credit: Pixabay / Pezibear Our senses can trigger memories. So do strong emotions. We make memory books with photographs, letters, and other physical objects and can reminisce about the events surrounding them. Certain fragrances can bring back people and places. Music can prompt thoughts about occasions, good or bad. Yet, we forget where we left those keys a few minutes ago. Several times, I have struggled to remember where I left som

Bad Science and Extraterrestrial Life

Image
Looks like the hands at the Darwin Ranch must have been ingesting peyote buttons again, since they were presenting some bizarre stuff lately — more so than usual. Since they cannot have discussions with their invisible friends from outer space, evolutionists are commencing to deal from the bottom of the deck again (they're not too spaced out to do that) and being irrational as well as deceitful in their pseudoscience. If the rumor is true , they could have stayed out of trouble by riding into town for a free Slurpee. Since that didn't happen, I have a couple of articles for your consideration. Enceladus image credit: NASA / JPL / Space Science Institute (Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents. Not by a long shot.) These tinhorns are getting our tax money to speculate on non-science such as astrobiology , promoting wishful thinking as scientific hypotheses, evolutionary presuppositions, circular reasoning, and so on.
