Obscuring Coelacanth Evolution

Image
Many creationists point out that a species of armored fish called the coelacanth was presumed extinct for over 65 million Darwin years, then it was found in 1936 doing just fine. It was just the same as it was in the fossil record, and that's the beginning of evolutionist woes. A new bundle of evoporn is attempting to make excuses. Credit: NOAA (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) Scientists cannot use the unscientific rescuing device of "stasis" for this or other living fossils because during those alleged millions of years, Darwinian mythology has a passel of things evolving. In addition, the claim that certain fins were evidence of it trying to evolve legs, but that was also disproved by Big C itself. A paper on the coelacanth tried to save face for Darwin, and it did what his disciples so often invoke. They ignored some very important facts, then used weasel words loaded with the equivalent of "I guess maybe", then passed it off as

Pondering the Origin of the Brain-Eating Amoeba

Image
For some reason, I found the subject matter of the so-called brain-eating amoeba ( Naegleria fowleri ) rather unsettling. The science behind it is interesting. Amoebas are single-celled organisms, and infections from these are usually fatal. Fortunately, they are rare. But where did they come from? Processing a sample for detection of N. fowleri Credit: USGS / Peter Wright , WY-MT Water Science Center (Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) Resisting the urge to make jokes about criminal cyberstalkers, the "brain-eating" part of the name is wrong. The nasty things enter through the nasal cavity and infect the host's brain resulting in  primary amebic meningoencephalitis. These amoebas are in contaminated warm fresh water or even hot springs. I found it interesting that drinking the water does not cause this particular disease. Take a look at this PDF from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention . Don't get on the prod about all amoebas, as m

Evolutionists Alarmed by Not-Random Mutations

Image
Atheists and evolutionists claim to rely on fish-to-fool evolution being a process that relies on chance mutations — with some intangible pressures from the environment thrown in. Except when they invoke evolution as a deity that makes choices and something evolved because or for a purpose, which is teleology. Streng verboten ! Credit: Unsplash / Jaron Nix Some evolutionists believe that the current belief in the way mutations operate is actually harmful to Darwinism. Although they will not leave their religion of evolutionism in a steamy plop on the trail where it belongs, they are seeing that adaptations are not exactly purposeless after all, and that organisms adapt. Of course, they do not want to commit the ultimate heresy and admit that organisms were designed by the Master Engineer to adapt, no siree. Increasing numbers of evolutionists question the validity of their own theory of evolution everyone is taught in school. A recent challenge came from a paper with the int

Vegetarian Crocodiles and Imaginary Evolution

Image
The hands at the Darwin Ranch have had a busy week, what with botching a study on dinosaur soft tissues and all. Now we have some foolish speculations on vegan crocodiles that have no merit. Mayhaps the silly work seemed good on tequila night, but taxpayers who fund this stuff should get refunds. Background image courtesy of Why?Outreach , crocodile from Clker clipart By examining teeth in crocodile fossils, researchers claim that the critters evolved vegetarian lifestyles multiple times. They really do not know what happened except using the scientific principle of Making Things Up™. Living creatures have complex teeth.  Of course, this assertion of vegetarian evolution raises many questions. What caused it? "Yeah, well, I wanted to do something to help save the world from global warming, so I evolved into a vegan. You'll thank me later." Did the digestion change and then the teeth? What about the lack of evolution of crocodiles and alligators ? And so on.

Not Observing Evolution After All

Image
People tend to interpret evidence in light of their worldviews, including scientists. Champions of universal common ancestor evolution are fond of saying that evolution has been observed, but they are a mite confused. They think they see this evolution when there is actually nothing of the kind. Credit: FreeDigitalPhotos.net / khumthong In addition to worldview-based interpretations of data, there is also a serious consideration of definitions. Many words are redefined to fit an agenda. One example is racist , which is used contrary to actual definitions and has humorously been defined as, "Someone who is winning a debate with a leftist".   Evolution is often equivocated using the ol' bait 'n' switch tactic. Change, natural selection, variation, and speciation are most definitely not evolution. However, since evolutionists can't play with the hand they're dealt, they shuffle and deal from the bottom of the deck: suddenly, the variation that is

Evening Primrose Tunes In

Image
We know that there is more to plants than it seems. In recent years, scientists have discovered that trees in the forest use the wood-wide web to communicate . People believe that talking to plants helps them grow, but there is apparently no evidence to support this. However, an evening primrose may be listening. Credit: Pixabay / Manseok Kim I am not saying that you should talk to a plant and ask for advice in dealing with how evolutionists have hijacked science. The only way a plant could really hear you is if a foreign power slipped a listening device into its pot. An extremely interesting study showed that an evening primrose can sense bee-wing vibrations and quickly sweeten the nectar to attract the bees. Of course, Darwinists just assumed evolution despite no evidence whatsoever. If you study on it, you'll see that proclaiming evolution raises a whole whack of questions. The truth is that there are many interesting mechanisms that the Master Engineer designed; the

Dinosaur Soft Tissue Deniers Accidentally Support Creation

Image
Looks like the hands at the Darwin Ranch contracted with the Field Museum of Paleontology in Chicago. Like a pesky stain on a shirt or a bad penny, evolutionists cannot escape the devastating facts of soft tissues found in dinosaur bones, which support recent creation and the Genesis Flood. Original image credit: Triceratops at the Dinosaur Journey Museum , US Dept of Transportation / aschweigert (Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) Secularists tried ignoring the problem , put the spin on tissues , and even sailed on Denial River with Cleopatra. Now they're trying something old and new by digging up failed arguments from 2008 and attempting to research up some confirmation for their biases. I reckon that these folks are unwilling to face reality. They had some interesting results, but inadvertently confirmed several things that creationists have been saying all along. In addition, several very important facts have been left out in an effort to make a poss

The Complex Genome and Presuppositions

Image
The article featured below has two important points to make. The first one is about how people interpret evidence, the second discusses some of the ways Darwinoids deal from the bottom of the deck while attempting to evosplain away facts that inconvenience their worldview. Background Image: RGBStock / Tomislav Alajbeg When creationists ride with the evidence brand, they can be in for a world of hurt. I remember reading an article by an old earth compromiser who was thrilled that there was "proof" of the Big Bang and the inflation of the universe. Very shortly afterward, this was rejected . In a similar manner, I was being hounded by someone who was constantly alarmed when some evolutionary "evidence" was presented. "This can be refuted, right?" The faith of these professing Christians was not properly grounded and they are facing the barrage of fake news from the secular science industry , so they are often troubled. Christians must presuppose the

Those Kangaroos in India

Image
It sure would be nice for me to take a trip to 'Straya and see the sights, meet a few Fazebook friends, say "G'day pilgrim" to some stockmen , and maybe see some of the unique wildlife, such as the 'roos. Those critters are one of the cultural icons of Australia, but there is evidence that kangaroos were in India! Credits: cropped from Freeimages / Leena Naidoo , then modifed with FotoSketcher Pictographs that look a great deal like kangaroos were found in India. That is a problem for believers in molecules-to-marsuipal evolution, as they believe those animals only lived in Australia. The big assumption is that just because kangaroos are not found in other parts of the world today, they were never there. Since the observations did not fit the narrative, the evidence was waved off. Worse for Darwin and his death cult, this evidence fits biblical creation science Flood, Ice Age, and animal dispersion models. Evolutionary narratives insist that kangaroos

NASA and Wernher von Braun

Image
It seemed fitting to post this on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. A few years ago, I posted a quote from Dr. Wernher von Braun in a forum about God. An atheist disparaged his remarks by calling him a Nazi. Aside from the obvious genetic and ad hominem fallacies, this attack was illustrated the disinformation that has been carried out by secularists for many years about him. Dr. Wernher von Braun image credit: NASA / Marshall Space Flight Center (Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) This rocket scientist worked under duress for the Nazis, desiring only the peaceful exploration of space. He and his team sought out the Americans after the war and willingly surrendered to them. Eventually, he became an important and respected figure at NASA and worked on the Apollo program. At that time, he became a Christian and a creationist, rejecting the one-sided teaching of evolution in schools. Naturally, atheists and evolutionists seek to put him in a

Devastation from Secular Environmentalist Ethics

Image
Utilitarian philosophies are rooted in rebellion against the Creator, claiming to have a noble purpose for the good of the many. Essentially, for the pleasure and what is good for the majority. Secular views are inherently self-refuting and contradictory. Climate change and other environmental initiatives are often utilitarian . Background image credit: Pixabay /  icheinfach Individuals are often required to sacrifice their freedoms for the good of the majority. In the movie Minority Report, three people with precognitive abilities were essentially imprisoned so they could provide information for the Premurder division of the police. While the results gained from their skills were considered helpful for society, nobody questioned the fact that they were essentially slaves — in a tank of water, no less. The purpose was utilitarian, to sacrifice themselves for the good of the many. We know that most environmentalists have good intentions, wanting nature and humanity to live toge

Engineered Adaptability and Design Features Part 2

Image
Back in the first part , we examined how organisms show that they were designed according to engineering principles by the Master Engineer. There is a correlation between various designs of humans and those of organisms, but any form of natural selection has no application. Rocket engines image in background from Freeimages / Terry Eaton Let's saddle up and ride this trail a bit further. Something can perform well and fulfill its designed purpose, but if its limits are exceeded, that is not the fault of the device, organism, or the engineer. In fact, some things are designed to break. Even the infamous Windows computers' Blue Screen of Death was designed to protect the computer, probably from software that was not  properly designed or an excessive load on the computer. All factors are not the same for all organisms. The mystical "selection pressures" that supposedly cause minerals-to-machinist evolution may affect you and I the same, but our Basement Cat migh

Tube Anemones Enemies of Evolution

Image
More trouble at the Darwin Ranch. Scientists along with everyone else tend to reason from their presuppositions, but those should be questioned when they are so frequently refuted. Advocates of atoms-to-anemones evolution have to deal with unpleasant facts regarding tube anemones. Researchers did some genome sequencing of mitochondrial DNA on tube anemones and had some big surprises. For one thing, the genomes of most organisms is circular. the mtDNA of the tube anemones studied is linear. Also, the mtDNA of one species was 81,000 base pairs long. Ours has 16,569. The hands at the Darwin Ranch might be sorry they examined the anemones, since this causes more problems for evolution but also affirms special creation. By the way, some people like to put them in their home aquariums. Anemones come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors. Members of phylum Cnidaria, anemones are most commonly associated with clownfish in popular culture. However, there is much more to anemone

The Perplexing Pangolin

Image
Before we get into the details, I want to share an opinion. We were created in the image of God  and many critters seem to indicate that he has a sense of humor. Some creatures including the hoatzin , kangaroo , and the platypus almost seem like pranks our Creator made to fluster evolutionists. The same could apply the the pangolin. Credit: Wikimedia Commons /  A. J. T. Johnsingh  ( CC by-SA 4.0 ) If I took my glasses off, it might look like a miniature sauropod, being small at one end, much thicker in the middle, and small at the other end (according to a theory by Miss Anne Elk ). It has scales, which are not found in mammals today, and the scales are unlike those of reptiles. This misnamed "scaly anteater" does the armadillo thing by curling up into a ball when threatened. It should do more of that, as vile humans are driving them to near extinction. There is no sign of evolution; the pangolin remains a pangolin. The truth does not stop evolutionists from Making

Intricate Feather Architecture

Image
The next time you find a feather, you may want to pick it up and give it a good look-see. There are many fine and delicate elements that may cause you to wonder how even a large number of those can keep Chirpy in the air. Credit: Unsplash / T evin Trinh Birds make flying look easy, but their feathers deal with enormous stresses. They have to keep their owner airborne as well as protect them from the elements. Wind is a factor, yet the feathers were designed to keep from breaking. Feathers are attached through the central shaft, and new research using an electron microscope provides us some insight. It is amazing that despite the obvious specified complexity, the main researcher still had to give homage to evolution even though there is no sign of bird or feather evolution in the fossil record. Want to know why there is no evidence for evolution? The evidence points to the fact that our Creator did all the work. He  is the one who deserves the credit, not some vague force c

Flat Earth Beliefs and Special Knowledge

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen In my years of writing, doing social media, having conversations, and simply observing people, I have come to the conclusion that many want to believe that they are better in some ways than other people. One means to this end is to have some kind of special knowledge. Image credit: Pixabay / Vicki Nunn Atheists rank near the top of the uppity scale, imagining that they own science and reason. They use these to suppress the truth of God in unrighteousness (Rom. 1:18). Universal common ancestor evolution is a cornerstone of atheism and of anti-creation compromisers. Those of us who believe the truth of Scripture and the reality of biblical creation science are deemed inferior. This is primarily based on their arbitrary presuppositions that science must be rooted in naturalism. However, their presuppositions and assumptions are not supported by logic or evidence . Conversely, there are professing Christians who are full of pride about their salvation

A Stupid Dinosaur Bat Evolution Trick

Image
Reading this report got me on the prod because I found it insulting. Sometimes I think that proponents of molecules-to-mammal evolution think that we are unable to see through their just-so stories, but then I see anti-creationists gobbling them up and pretending to believe "science". The latest instance is of a fossil that is laden with silliness. Credit: Pixabay / Andrew Martin A fossil was found that strongly resembles a bat, and Darwin's disciples evosplain with not only circular reasoning (assuming evolution to prove evolution), but are making evolution into a decision-making entity. Here, evolution experimented on the development of dinosaur flight with a bat, a story that belongs in comic books. They're calling it a dinosaur because evolution. There are many bats in the world, pilgrim, like there were in bygone days. What they found was just another bat. Further, evolutionists have no means of showing any sign of bat evolution , nor can they expla

Water and Wind Gaps Plus Poor Secular Logic

Image
Secular geologists have a great deal of trouble explaining landforms according to their uniformitarian (slow processes over long periods of time) belief systems, and they even attempt to use very unscientific and illogical explanations for what is observed. Delaware water gap image credit: Freeimages / Tom S Wind and water gaps are found in mountains. To use the technical term, there's a bunch of 'em. Secular storytellers cannot adequately explain their existence and especially their formation, even resorting to explanations that defy basic physics and gravity. The explanation for the Lake Missoula Flood of the Ice Age was fought for many years, as secularists wanted to cling to their outdated ideas.  There is a far better explanation for landforms, including water and wind gaps. That would be the Genesis Flood. There are people who reject this out of hand , refusing to consider the evidence from geology . However, uniformitarian geologists (as I indicated before) do no

Those Super-Smart Scrub Jays

Image
While a biblical creation science ministry is hard work, it can be fun at times. Learning new things is fun for me. Something I had never heard of before living east of the Mississippi was something called scrub jays.  The Western scrub jay has been officially renamed to California  scrub jay — not that it pays them no nevermind. Renamed because of global warming or something. Other scrub jays apparently have their established names. Excellent image of a California scub jay, credit: Wikimedia Commons /  VJAnderson  ( CC by-SA 4.0 ) When I first saw the article featured below, I thought it was just another name for the blue jays that are common in these parts. (I also thought a scrub jay would help with the dishes, but that was wrong.) While our jays are in the same corvid family of intelligent birds as the scrubs, they have some distinct differences . We have seen some intelligent antics from our blue jays (well, they come to our feeders and in the yard, hence, "our" ja
