Evil People Trying to Prove Evolution

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen 

The content of this post (and especially in the featured article below) is both important and disturbing, so be forewarned on both counts. People want to believe they are special, and the Nazis used evolutionism, bad science, and propaganda to "prove" the Aryan "race" was superior.

Background image furnished by Why?Outreach
An honest examination of evolutionary thinking reveals that it has spawned many evils, including:
As we have seen many times, many adherents of the Darwin Death Cult® are not driven by evidence, but instead are trying to promote the atheistic naturalism narrative. (If evolutionists were indeed following the evidence, they would all be biblical creationists! It is a spiritual matter, old son, and not so much about properly using science.) They presuppose evolution as an axiom and then build from that. Evolutionists allow each other to question how something allegedly evolved, but to question evolution itself is streng verboten.

The interpretations of evidence for evolution is tendentious. We see quite often that Darwinists are seeking to have their biases confirmed. Data is selected, and unpleasant facts are ignored or downplayed.

Hitler used the Aryan "race" myth. Like other Darwin enthusiasts, Nazis did not examine evidence for this alleged Aryan race, but instead the they sought confirmation bias. Since Jews were considered inferior, they used selective citing (including the ever-popular fallacy of suppressed evidence) and confirmation bias. That is, tenuous or even imagined support for Aryan superiority and the inferiority of Jews and other ethnic groups was falsely supported.

The Nazis also dehumanized the Jews. This is a popular tactic, and we see it happening with atheists attempting to dehumanize Christians and creationists, and leftists are doing it to those who do not vote, speak, and even think the way they prefer — which is happening while you're reading this. Learn from history, people!

The next part of this will be hard to read — it is difficult for me to write.

Scientists supporting Nazism were making museums of Jewish skeletons because they considered Jewish people inferior to Aryans. Victims were selected because they fit Nazi beliefs based on arbitrary assertions of physical characteristics. (Again, we often see this nonsense in evolutionary "evidence".) They ignored the fact that all humans, including Jews, have diverse physical characteristics. Their victims were murdered so their bodies and some organs could be displayed in revolting "I told you so!" propaganda.

Although there were Jews in Germany who had scientific prestige, the political and manufactured moral sentiments went against them, and they were betrayed — even by people who formerly admired them. Since this evidence of intellectual capabilities did not fit their views, Nazis moved the goalposts (as do many evolutionists today) by saying that Jews were morally and physically inferior. This kind of racism existed even before Darwin, who did not invent evolutionary ideas, he used those already in existence, plagiarized, and hijacked natural selection for his own ends.

The wicked researchers showed no remorse for their crimes at their trials. All 86 victims for the murderous evolutionary proof project were identified and memorialized.

Those of us who know and believe the Bible realize that while there are ethnic groups and the Master Engineer designed us to have diversity, there is only one race. I'll allow that while this Nazi project is an extreme example, it is still an example of human depravity. It also reveals how fake science and bad logic can be used to confirm evil presuppositions. Our Creator is the one who makes the rules, and we are responsible to him. All will stand before him and confess that Jesus is Lord.
This is a review of the history of an attempt to prove Jewish racial inferiority by selecting Jews who fit the racial stereotype, then murdering them, and processing the bodies for display in a German university museum. In the end, the researchers were unable to find any evidence of Jewish racial inferiority as predicted by the anthropology and medical academic community of the time. The cost in terms of lives and suffering included over 100 innocent people who were murdered to prove a theory that turned out to be not only wrong but based on an erroneous secular philosophy, namely Darwinism. This display was one result of the rejection of the Genesis account that teaches all men are descendants of our first parents, Adam and Eve; thus all humans are of one race (the human race) and one kind (mankind).

To read the rest, brace yourselves and see "The Failed Attempt to Prove Jewish Inferiority by a Skeleton Collection". It is useful and informative, but also unpleasant.

Punctuating the Crocodile Evolution

Sometimes it get baffling how people persist in believing universal common descent evolution, what with all the bad science, frauds, and all. Then I remember that such pedagese exists because naturalists will believe anything rather than allow a Divine foot in the door. Consider crocodiles and punctuated equilibrium.

Some evolutionists admit that they do not have the transitional fossil forms they need. Punctuated equilibrium, rapid change without evidence is used as an explanation for crocodile non-evolution.
Modified from an image at Pexels / Rutpratheep Nilpechr

It's been "the trade secret of paleontology" that there are no undisputed transitional fossils. (In fact, many putative transitional forms were simply different genders, adults, juveniles, variations of the same critter.) Since Papa Darwin knew that the fossils did not support his views, he took it by faith that they would be found someday (which is not science in the least). Since there is no actual evidence for evolution, what's a Darwin devotee to do?

Trade one story without evidence for another tall tale, of course! Otto Schindewolf proposed that evolution happened in bursts, so that's why there's no evidence. Richard Goldschmidt later came up with the "hopeful monster" idea, where (short version) a bird laid an egg and a lizard hatched. He ran this one up the flagpole but nobody saluted it, so it faded.

Stephen Jay Gould and Niles Eldredge bought it out of the root cellar and gave it the expensive moniker of punctuated equilibrium, which is sort of like all those movie "reboots" where the dreadful phrase, "The same thing only different" applies.

Whether fundamentalist evolutionism or sudden leaps, all of this presupposes some form of evolution and denies the truth of our Creator. Then they build their ranch spread firmly in the air with no actual foundation, with a heapin' helpin' of faith to keep it hanging there. Since evolution can explain anything (which means it explains nothing), the irresistible force of evolution can be suspended; something doesn't evolve if it doesn't need to. No "evolutionary pressures" happened over millions of Darwin years, so an organism remained in stasis.

They are pulling these pieces of non-science together to explain the lack of evidence for crocodile evolution. In fact, since they cannot admit that evidence doesn't exist and they are simply using the complex scientific principle of Making Things Up™. They are also trying to marry up gradualism with rapid processes, and people are getting paid lotsa grotzits for doing nothing. And they do it quite well.

Evolution is fast except when it is slow. It explains all, including why crocodiles are largely unchanged for 200 mya.

The theory of punctuated equilibrium (“punk eek”) was the Darwin-rescue device concocted by Stephen Jay Gould and Niles Eldredge in 1972, when the paleontologists realized that evolution appears to change organisms rapidly between long periods of stasis (i.e., no evolution). The PBS Evolution site treats punk eek as a valid hypothesis still needing answers, but at the time, evolutionists revolted at the idea. They had been trained to think in Darwin’s terms of slow, gradual accumulation of small variations. With smile mask on, the PBS writer smooths over the controversy:

The Masterful Engineering of Trees

It would be easy for someone to take trees for granted, even though we know that they give us wood products, homes for assorted critters, and produce oxygen. What is easy to overlook is how they are exquisite examples of our Creator's genius.

We may not think much about trees other than wood, producing oxygen, and so on. However, despite misotheists, they are superb examples of design.
Modified from a US Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Aaron Henson
(Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents by the Marines
or the US Department of Defense, but my USMC brother might approve)
Trees can be likened to buildings. A favorite argument of many creationists and those in the Intelligent Design movement is that a painting has a painter, a building has a builder, etc., but the extreme complexity of life is the product of atheistic naturalism and evolution. That's willful ignorance, old son, just like the absurd canard that things only appear to be designed — which is just an opinion.

"Didn't George Carlin ask why they're called buildings when they're already built, Cowboy Bob?"

I think that was him. Moving on...

Buildings begin with plans (information), and trees have their information packed into tiny seeds. Materials must be brought to the building's site, but trees are designed to use what is available. Energy needs to be installed in a building, but trees are made for photosynthesis. This process uses sunlight, carbon dioxide, and organic compounds to provide energy. There are more details of the specified complexity in trees to consider and appreciate in our Creator's work.
Trees are given a prominent position in God’s Word. Psalm 1 compares a man who bases his life on God’s law to a tree growing close to streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.

To most people, trees are the very essence of ‘naturalness’, which basically implies absence of artificial human input. In recent decades, secular literature has shown a noticeable shift towards interpreting naturalness as absence of divine input—as merely the product of chance, by evolution. Nothing could be further from the truth; a tree is not a product of chance, but of divine design.

I may be going out on a limb, but you may like the rest of the article at "Trees: God’s creative power on display". Also, you could branch off and read a similar post, "Trees Leaf Evolutionists Puzzled".

Science, the Bible, and Islam

Someone made a galactically vapid attack on "religion", stating that since all religions cannot be right, none of them are. Misotheists often categorize religion as if they were all the same. We shall consider the two largest monotheistic religions regarding science and culture.

There are superficial resemblances between Islam and Christianity. When we look at the Koran, the Bible, and science, differences become apparent.
Made from graphics at Openclipart
When pointing out how science thrives in the proper environment and that many of the founders of modern science were not only Christians but also biblical creationists, scoffers sometimes bring up ancient Persian astronomers and mathematicians. However, Mohammedanism is not conducive to science. (How many Islamic scientists who have contributed to society can you name?) Indeed, many things attributed to ancient Persians were actually borrowed from other cultures.

For that matter, how many have contributed to culture? Their architecture is not original, and the Koran takes a dim view of music. Those who are in the performing arts are obviously not fundamentalists.

The Bible and the Koran agree superficially that life was created, but the details are extremely different. (Allah may do reverse evolution by turning someone into an ape!) When contrasting the creation narrative of the Bible with remarks about creation in the Koran, it is easy to tell that the Bible was written with knowledge and authority. Add to this that Islam has some distinctly unscientific teachings, but the Bible has never been wrong on scientific facts.

If a religion is the one true religion then the god of that religion, the claimed creator, must be a supernatural being; one who is separate from and beyond nature. If that god is a holy god who is all powerful and all knowing, then that god would know all things absolutely and would communicate accurate and truthful facts about history, medicine, music, art and science. 

The Christian Bible, although available in many translations from the original texts, is filled with accurate statements about history, medicine, music, art and science. The 14 variants (seven major texts, each with two equally accepted versions) of the Koran (also Quran or Qurʼan) are filled with inaccurate statements about history, medicine, music, art and science.

. . . 

Any religion is founded upon its “creation” account consisting of who or what is responsible and how all things came into existence. That creation foundation determines the relationship between the god and the people that were created. The first test for the one true religion must be that its creation account is rational, reasonable, logical and based in evidence (scientifically accurate). Consider the following comparisons between the creation accounts of the Bible and the Korans and get a sense of which one fits these four standards:

To read this extremely interesting by quite long article, saddle up and ride over to "Is Islam a Scientifically Valid Religion?" For the record, the article was posted in 2020, but I believe it was written before that. This only affects superficial details.

Layers of Folded Rocks

We recently looked at how it is reasonable to expect to find certain things if an idea is correct, and this is borne out in the Grand Canyon in support of creation science Flood geology. We need to visit there again and examine folded rock layers.

Another thing that secular geologists cannot reasonably explain is how rock layers around the earth are bent and curved. Creation Science explains.
Credit: US National Park Service (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents)

Believers in deep time seem to want us to believe irrational and contradictory things. Sedimentary layers are supposedly laid down gradually over hundreds of millions of years, but using the complex scientific principle of Making Things Up™, these stiff rocks folded under proper conditions. (By the way, folded is used to describe curved layers as well as those which aremore dramatically folded.) Still waiting on empirical evidence to support these unobserved events in the distant past.

When the data is plugged into creation science Genesis Flood models, what is observed makes a great deal more sense. One thing the secularists have right: sedimentary rocks folded under the right conditions. The conditions were caused by the Flood and uplifts when the rocks were much more pliable and less likely to fracture like the ones we see now.

The fossil-bearing geologic record consists of tens of thousands of feet of sedimentary layers, though not all these layers are found everywhere around the globe, and their thickness varies from place to place. At most locations only a small portion is available to view, such as about 4,500 feet (1371 m) of strata in the walls of the Grand Canyon.

Uniformitarian (long-age) geologists believe that these sedimentary layers were deposited and deformed over the past 500 million years. If it really did take millions of years, then individual sediment layers would have been deposited slowly and the sequences would have been laid down sporadically. In contrast, if the global cataclysmic Genesis Flood deposited all these strata in a little more than a year, then the individual layers would have been deposited in rapid succession, one on top of the other.

Retracted Papers and Peer Review

The secular peer-review process is enounced as if it were a guarantee of truth and objectivity, but these folks do not understand what is involved. Academia requires publishing, and many researchers want to promote the next big thing in science. There are serious problems in this elite club.

The secular-peer review process is believed to be a guarantee of truth and accuracy. It is beset with problems including use of retracted papers.

The secular science industry is beset with problems. There is a reproducibility crisis, which means that papers are submitted, reviewed, and published — but the results have not been reproduced. How valid is that paper? Researchers cite papers that are dubious, and some are even fraudulent. It was discovered that retracted papers are also used to support research.

Mockers reject peer-reviewed papers by biblical creationists, but they have very different motivations by secularists and are apparently not dealing with such issues. Don't be disunderstanding me. I'm not gilding the lily and pretending there are no sidewinders pretending to be creationists, or that they are without fault. But with desires to uphold the Word of God and seek the truth, creationists as a whole are disinclined to cheat. Savvy?

There’s another case of zombie science in peer-reviewed publishing: retracted papers that don’t stay dead.

Proponents of scientism often argue that science, unlike other realms of scholarship, is self-correcting. Peer review prevents bad papers from getting published (so goes the argument), but even after publication, other experts or the authors themselves can find flaws and notify the journal, which can issue a retraction. All well and good. . . . Why, then, are some papers still being cited over a decade after they were retracted?

The Master Design of the Human Ear

When certain sidewinders say that various things around us have the "appearance" of design and imply that they are only the products of fish-to-fool evolution, they are not making scientific statements. The construction of the human ear is clearly engineered by the Master Builder.

Despite the claims of Darwin's disciples, the specified complexity of the human ear and the hearing process defies evolution by its masterful design.

Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents

Sound happens, disrupting the air with small cycles. When sound reaches the ear, resonance amplifies it in the canal and then things get serious. The brain makes it understandable (unless it's impossible), and we can hear someone calling, a symphony, alarms, water in a stream or ocean, and so much more. The entire process is amazingly complex, and we can defy someone who claims that it is the product of time, chance, random processes, and so on to say how the process and its specified complexity allegedly evolved.

Looking at the ear and how it works, it becomes immediately obvious that there is an awesome and very intricate process underlying our auditory sense. In fact, the human ear is one of the most intricate examples of miniature and sophisticated engineering on the planet.

My background is in mathematics applied to acoustic engineering, having performed research on the role of pressure waves with combustion. This includes very small variations in pressure, called acoustic waves, which travel through the air when we speak. Though small, they can even affect standing flames. That work involves the safety of jet engines which can under a certain phenomenon called ‘resonance’ (when one object vibrates in sympathy with another) amplify acoustic waves such that the vibrations grow and even destroy fan blades in the rotor. As we will see, resonance is an important property in hearing, and in particular in hearing the human voice.

Darwinism and the Gypsy Holocaust

The trope of Gypsies traveling in wagons was rather common on television and in movies, often as comedy. They were viewed with suspicion and hostility, and some probably perpetuated their image as thieves and swindlers. However, the caricatures are inadequate.

Gypsies are familiar because of movie and television tropes, but this ethnic group is complex. They suffered persecution in WW2 based on evolution.
Encampment of Gypsies with Caravans, Vincent van Gogh, 1888
It is true that they had nomadic groups. Accents given to them on television seemed to be Hungarian, Romanian, and similar, but they did not originate from those areas. Gypsies are the Romani (or Roma) people, and are a large minority in Eastern European countries even today. However, this ethnic group has a language similar to Hindi, and they probably came from India way back when.

We hear about the Nazi persecution of the Jews, less about the Japanese atrocities in World War II, but not very much about the persecution and murders of many thousands of Romani people. Why pick on them? After all, Hitler didn't discuss them. It was because of Darwinian views of the Nazis and arbitrary decisions.

The Romani were "racially inferior", and Germans were free to kill them because of irrational justification. (I expect leftists in the formerly United States to have license to persecute their political opponents. Because reasons and stuff.) Racism based on Darwinian thinking led to extreme persecution of the Romani people. They, too, were created in the image of God. It is indeed unfortunate that it is difficult to convince an evolutionist of this truth.

The Gypsies, along with the Jews, were a major target of the Holocaust due to claims that they were both inferior races. Attempts to apply Darwinian eugenics were part of the Nazi effort to produce a superior race in Germany. The Gypsies have largely been ignored by scholars and others until recently. At least a dozen academic studies and four books have now been dedicated to document their experience during World War II. Hitler was not behind the genocide of Gypsies, nor was he concerned about them; the academic “race scientists” planned and orchestrated their genocide. The Gypsies’ case illustrates a major result of rejecting the Genesis teaching that all men are descendants of the original created pair of humans, and instead Nazi ideology classified people groups on a superior-inferior ranking. As documented in this brief review, the evil this worldview caused, even to a relatively small group, was enormous.

Exposing the Catastrophic Truth of the Grand Canyon

It should come as no surprise that not only are rocks exposed at the Grand Canyon, but the layers as well. Geological questions are raised, so the inability of secularists to give plausible answers to what is observed exposes their faulty presuppositions as well.

Uniformitarian geology has many holes in explanations of what is observed in the Grand Canyon. Creation Science Flood geology makes sense of the data.

(Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents)

When dealing with a claim, it is often helpful to examine what would be expected if it were true. We can also ask about things that are missing. Uniformitarian (slow and gradual processes over deep time) geology has many holes in the stories told about what is observed. 

If Genesis Flood geology models are true, there are certain things we would expect to find, and creationists have to deal with holes in the theories as well. However, Flood geology is far more plausible in describing observed evidence in the Grand Canyon.

As you look across Grand Canyon, observe the layers on both walls. The cliffs and the colors match from one side to the other. The gaps between the cliffs were once filled solid, the layers continuous, but the space in between has since been removed by erosion. The bottom flat layers are older and were deposited first; these are called Cambrian system rocks. The youngest layers are on the canyon’s rim; these are identified as Permian system rocks.

All of these layers were deposited during the rising phase of the global Flood. Powerful tsunami-like waves spread massive, continuous sedimentary layers for hundreds of miles in all directions across this part of North America. Even relatively thin layers extend across Grand Canyon.

Dinosaur Soft Tissues, the Age of the Earth, and Microscopy

People familiar with The Question Evolution Project on Facebook should remember podcasts we posted of Dr. Ben Scripture of Scripture on Creation. (In fact, they interviewed me, and one of our topicss was Question Evolution Day.) Dr. Scripture contacted me with exciting news from his interview with Dr. Mark Armitage.

Soft tissues in dinosaur bones are bad news for evolution. Dr. Scripture interviews Mark Armitage on his microscopy work. Good news for creationists.
File photo of Dr. Scripture (left), YouTube screenshot of Mark Armitage (right)
We have two items of interest about how microscopy is not conducive to universal common descent evolution, the second of which will appear below. The one I like best is first.

Mark Armitage is a bad man according to believers in molecules-to-microscopist evolution as well as proponents of an old earth. His crime? Having an article published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Acta Histochemica with Dr. Kevin Anderson about soft tissues in a Triceratops horn in 2012.

Dr. Armitage had a successful job at the biological imaging facility at California State University, Northridge. The program was popular there. Although the paper was about microscopy, he was fired from the college because having a Christian on staff apparently puts burrs under the saddles of those in power. He sued the university. Misotheists were laughing about it, evosplaining that he deserved it for being a biblical creationist. However, he won his suit and they settled out of court (see this article from 2016); it was costing the university lots of grotzits and they were clearly engaging in discrimination. Best to cut their losses.

This comment from one who believes in pursuing knowledge and not at
all bigoted is posted under Fair Use provisions for educational purposes.
It was originally made in response to another post about Mark Armitage.

He has ridden a long trail over the years and quite a bit has happened. I'll let Dr. Scripture and Dr. Armitage fill you in, but I want to say that he started the Dinosaur Soft Tissue Research Institute, which is run by volunteers. They have ongoing discoveries, including one about chromosomes with follow-up peer-reviewed papers. (I am stressing the peer-reviewed part because misotheists claim that creationists are never in secular journals.) So, Mark has been busy and so has the DSTRI.

Now I'll turn you over to Dr. Scripture's interview. I liked it so much, I listened twice. It is free to listen online or download the MP3, so you can find out here. Listen for a reference to a prediction by Dr. Armitage that there would be an increase in the discoveries of soft tissues. (Related: see "Five Important Soft Tissue Problems for Evolutionists".) Remember that I said there was another item? Right, let's do that next.

Longtime followers of ICR should be familiar with our research into original organics in fossils. Over 100 peer-reviewed secular publications have shown that one might discover original tissue remnants in fossils from any region.

. . . 

One technique that targets the protein collagen in bone is called cross polarized light microscopy (XPOL). Research begins with preparing very thin sections of bone. A microscope fitted with crossed polarizers (“cross polars”) can detect regions in the sample where something twists the light. In bone, that something is collagen.

. . . 

XPOL light microscopy is just one more tool—alongside a few dozen others—that scientists use to help describe collagen in fossil bone. As with the other 100-plus soft tissue discoveries, these bones look thousands, not millions, of years old.

Eugenics, Abortion, and Down Syndrome

As many know, eugenics (meaning "well born") is a method of deciding who is fit for life. It is based on Darwinian ideas and political climate. It fell out of favor in the US when the Nazis took it to its logical conclusion, but is returning and being used to eliminate Down Syndrome.

Eugenics is based on Darwinian ideas and has caused a great deal of evil in the world. This is being used to justify abortion of Down Syndrome babies.

Of course, when I say "eliminate" Down Syndrome (sometimes called Down's Syndrome), I mean that prenatal tests determining the condition result in abortion. Cold-hearted Iceland proudly proclaims that there is almost no Down Syndrome there, but that's because the children were murdered. (Interestingly, Poland has gone the other direction.) My shameful distant cousins in Denmark are about as bad as Iceland.

I am convinced that a big reason that the formerly United States is under divine judgment is because of the millions of abortions that are performed. Many of these are simply out of convenience, and women know they are ending lives but do not care. In addition, evolution has been used to justify abortion, saying it's not really human yet. (Someone raised an interesting question: If the child is not human, why does Planned Parenthood engage in criminal activity by harvesting the organs and selling them?)

Another excuse for abortion is that people play God and decide that if the child has Down Syndrome, it will have a poor quality of life, so it's a good thing to murder it. This is blasphemous. It is also illogical, because there are differing degrees of the condition. My brother had severe Down Syndrome, and my parents would not have been happier without him. He also lived to age 64 — much longer than was projected and re-projected.

See the pattern? Two of the excuses for eugenics are Darwinism and quality of life. The same is happening to murder unborn children with Down Syndrome. Because God is our Creator, not evolution and natural selection (unnatural selection with eugenics), all of this is more heinous. Two articles on this subject follow.

One small gripe I have is that the author is a biblical creationist, but seems reluctant to say so much of the time. He would do well to learn presuppositional apologetics.

Evolutionist References Sherlock Holmes to Explain Dinosaur

Have you ever heard of the genus Lambeosaurus? Dinosaur enthusiasts probably know of this hadrosaur (duck-billed) hatchet-headed genus that had hollow crests, probably used for storing drinks and snacks. Found in Asia, North America and Europe — but how did one get to Africa?

The discovery of a kind of hadrosaur where it is not supposed to be flustered Darwin's disciples as to how it got there. Flood geology explains it.
Credit: Wikimedia Commons / Dmitry Bogdanov (CC BY 3.0)

According to deep time evolutionary beliefs, Africa was surrounded by water before they supposedly evolved. This discovery was described as being out of place, and one evolutionist used a famous quote by Sherlock Holmes (A. Conan Doyle). Their scenarios fail, but creation science Genesis Flood models make sense of the discovery. Unfortunately, the lecturer did not apply that quote to the Flood explanation. That seems rather inconsistent.

A new species of duck-billed dinosaur, Ajnabia odysseus, was recently unearthed in North Africa. This is the first hadrosaur-type dinosaur ever discovered on the continent of Africa, and it creates a conundrum for evolutionary scientists because its location doesn’t fit their narrative.

The new dinosaur, a member of the Lambeosaurinae subfamily, was discovered in a mine in Morocco in the uppermost Cretaceous System strata. It measured about 10 feet long, which is rather small compared to other hadrosaurs that could reach up to 49 feet.

To read the full article, sojourn to "Even Sherlock Holmes Can’t Explain African Dinosaurs". Lambeosaurus lives matter.

A Perplexing Pair of Pandas

For many years, people have been familiar with the black and white giant panda. Somewhat less known is the red panda (firefox). Scientists have debated whether these belong in the bear family or the garbage panda (raccoon) family, but are sure they are related.

Pandas have confounded classification for years. Darwinists refer back to the pagan origins of evolution, giving it a personality that cheated pandas.

Giant panda by J. Patrick Fischer (CC BY-SA 3.0), Red panda by Greg Hume (CC BY-SA 3.0)

The pagan roots of evolutionism are evident when the declining population of the giant panda is attributed to evolution giving them short shrift. Bad news, Beauregard: evolution is not an entity that makes decisions, you savvy that? Also, they did not evolve the ability to use kung fu. That has to be learned.

Also, Darwin's acolytes pretend that the panda's "thumb" is an example of bad design — which is a fallacious dysteleological argument used against the Creator. They shoot themselves with their own gun, because this appendage is extremely useful for the critter; if God had wanted them to have a human-like thumb, he would have given them one. They don't need one, and they were designed with the right tools for their lifestyles. And those nasty, big, pointy teeth? Great for their main food, which is bamboo.

The panda’s decline has been attributed to the progressive loss of its natural habitat of bamboo forests. Expanding human settlement and agriculture now confine the giant panda. . .

. . . their 99% dependence on bamboo means they face starvation when their favourite food flowers and dies! Massive simultaneous die-back occurs in cycles of 10–100 years, varying according to bamboo species, and it can take up to 20 years before regrowth can again support a panda population.

Pandas used to simply migrate to areas with other (i.e. nonflowering) bamboo species, but agricultural expansion now restricts such migration.

To read the entire article, migrate over to "The bamboozling panda". Note that the article was posted in 2001 and the video below is from 2008. Although endangered in the wild, population numbers of giant pandas that were mentioned will be different now.

Cretaceous Bird: Evolutionists Make Much out of Little

Shades of the Nebraska Man fake news! The hands at the Darwin Ranch, up yonder at Deception Pass, got the bit in their teeth and galloped away with news of a Cretaceous bird fossil. What did they find that was so exciting?

Another effort to avoid the truth of recent creation is making stories about bird evolution. This bird had a big bill, therefore, evolution. Nope.

Many evolutionists believe that dinosaurs evolved into birds, but that concept has a wagon train-full of problems that are conveniently ignored. However, birds and dinosaurs existed at the same time. What's a secularist to do? In addition to dodge, spin, parry, and other tricks, they also make up words rather than admit they have no evidence for evolution, bird or otherwise. Like the Nebraska Man fiasco, artists can imagine the entire scene without observable evidence. Whatever it takes to avoid the truth of recent creation, I suppose. The technology used to examine the fossil is impressive, though.

Hints of evolution with terms like "nonavian dinosaurs" and evolutionary paganism is invoked, making evolution into a sentient being that makes choices. It also finds ways to make evolution happen. Hail Darwin, blessed be!

The only fossil evidence was a larger beak than expected. From that, a scenario of evolution was built.

All the news media published their just-so story simultaneously, complete with artist reconstructions: a new bird, named Falcatakely (no, not Fake-i-tell-ye), emerged into storyland from a single skull found in Madagascar. The three-inch skull, being delicate, was not even extricated from the rock. Instead, American scientists performed a micro-CT scan on it to reconstruct the pieces in a computer model. The model is shown in Phys.org‘s coverage, “Bird with tall, sickle-shaped beak reveals hidden diversity during the age of dinosaurs.” But first, the Darwin worship service:

To finish reading, fly over to "This Dinosaur-Era Bird Was Not Evolving", but be sure to come back for the next part.

So this bird had a beak that startled evolutionists. That's great. Despite their hubris about making pronouncements supporting evolution, they are forced to admit that there is a great deal to learn about the world, past and present. Something else that was dodged is the fact that there are no transitional fossils when there should have been many. Beaks are exceptionally important to birds, even though beaks are fully formed in bird fossils.

It turns out the bird had an unfamiliar skull understructure from which its familiar beak shape grew during development. According to Stony Brook University News that reported on the find, that means this extinct bird evolved a way to grow a hornbill-like beak without a hornbill-like skull. What does this imply for the origin of this and other birds?

To those who wouldn’t be able to publish results without first phrasing them in evolutionary terms, this means that two separate types of birds happened to evolve two separate ways of making the same basic beak shape.

Although there is some overlap, this second article has information that complements the one just above. To read the rest, see "Cretaceous Bird Beak Pecks Holes in Evolution". The short video below illustrates how evolutionists deal with inconvenient facts.

The Pituitary Powerhouse

It is never a good idea to underestimate small things. While viruses are a prime example, a very small gland keeps many important things running in your body. It is the supervisor of endocrine glands, and without it, serious conditions can develop.

The pituitary is beneath the hypothalamus in both authority and its literal position. This regulates the pituitary's functions and supplies it with hormones (chemical messengers). If you study on it, the entire system is yet another example of specified complexity that time, chance, random processes, mutations, natural selection, and other Darwinian concepts can produce. We are talking about the work of the Master Engineer.

Tucked away at the base of your brain, behind your sinuses, is a pea-size gland called the pituitary. People once mistakenly thought this little organ simply made mucus when your nose runs. Now it is called “the master gland” because it controls most of your other endocrine glands—the organs that secrete chemical messengers to keep your body working properly. The pituitary controls many things, such as your skin cells’ production of pigment and the growth of your bones. It secretes ten different hormones (chemical messengers) into your blood to direct these and many other vital body functions.

Anti-Creationists and Moral Duty

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Whether social media or in the secular science industry itself, atheists and other anti-creationists oppose biblical creation science on "moral grounds". While getting ready to saddle up for Question Evolution Day, we should look at the presuppositions and definitions behind their claims.

Anti-creationists claim they want science to triumph over mythology. By redefining reality, they seek to put their own mythology in power.

The statement the misotheist (above) is paraphrased from a real comment. Science is not a person or an ideology. If you study on it, you'll see that it's a philosophical framework that uses logic (and often mathematics) to seek answers. Operational science works in the here and now, giving us medicine, space telescopes, solar cells, and the device you're using to read this article. Historical science is forensic in nature, attempting to use what is observed in the present to determined what happened in the past (see "Origin of the Terms 'Operational' and 'Historical' Science" for more about the differences).

While science is intended to search for answers, biblical creation science and anything resembling intelligent design are rejected out of hand. The secular science industry presupposes naturalism, and this leads to faith in Scientism — which is a terrible basis for morality and ethics. Indeed, when evidence clearly indicates the genius of the Creator, it's Katie, bar the door for naturalists. Can't acknowledge God in the slightest, no siree!

In addition, anti-creationists and professing atheists invoke the false claim that there is a "war between science and religion". Many of them obtain their disinformation that confirms their biases from tinhorn misotheistic propaganda mills. That is willful ignorance, old son. Actually, science thrives in the proper environment, anbd many of the founders of modern science were biblical creationists!

Ever read The Time Machine by H.G. Wells? The traveler reaches the year 802,701 AD (the year may have been calculated with forerunners of Dominion software), and humanity has devolved into two types. The Eloi are childlike and live outdoors, but are mostly helpless. Vestiges of technology remain, but the Eloi do not use or even understand it. The other type of human descendants are the Morlocks. They live in the underground, coming out at night to steal and often feed on the Eloi. I reckon that atheists are like the Morlocks, hiding in darkness. (John 3:19-20, Isaiah 5:20 and others come to mind.) They take the benefits that modern science (that creationists were instrumental in developing), but then act savagely toward their benefactors. That's right, I said it! Atheists are Morlocks!

Scientists are presented as impartial, objective people without biases or foibles. No, they can be just as rotten as you and I because all are sinners (Rom. 3:23, 6:23). While many want to do science stuff, there are quite a few who want fame and fortune. Science has been hijacked by sidewinders riding for leftist brands.

During the 2020 Wuhan virus tragedies, people were telling President Trump and others to "follow the science". As I have said, scientists are not only biased, but their organizations follow leftist trends. One of these is making gender dysphoria into a matter of choice instead of dealing with biological realities.

When I was working for a data entry mill, we entered HCFA forms for insurance claims. Right up there in Box 3, just after the date of birth, there are two boxes for sex. Not three. Not fifty eight. Two. If science were an entity, it wouldn't care if a man feels like a woman that day. Your biological sex matters, all the way down to the chromosomes, because males and females have different responses to medications, illnesses, and even have conditions unique to their sex. Savvy?

"Follow the science"? Leftists, Christophobes, and even many scientists are not doing it themselves!

By choosing to promote reality, a family doctor lost his job and much more because of leftist demands. The interview attached to this article lays things on the line medically. I reckon it is well worth your time.

Digging deeper in the desire to see science triumph over mythology, the writer referenced above presupposes the truthfulness of his religion of atheism. This is not a scientific stance, or is it even rational. He assumes that the Bible is mythology and is ignoring all of the historical as well as scientific facts supporting it. In addition, folks like this reject the spiritual nature of humans, presupposing materialism as reality. Some of these jaspers also believe that life is a computer simulation.

Another question to be asked is if we really are simply the products of evolution, how can we who are meat machines trust scientists who are also meat machines? Creationists could be chemically predisposed to believe in God, atheists for atheism. From there, they would have no consistent ethical foundation for being truthful — neither side. To do what makes them happy and what they consider necessary to improve their survivability and happiness is most important.

Despite the arbitrary, fact-free assertions of mental and spiritual Morlocks, naturalism is not reality. We have a revelation from our Creator and Redeemer who tells us all about reality, and without God, science, math, and logic are impossible! Those embracing Atheism Spectrum Disorder react of of emotion and the bidding of their Father Down Below, but they cannot change the truth. In fact, they have no basis for morality. The desire of atheists for "science" to triumph over myth is that they want their naturalistic, evolutionary, everything-came-from-nothing mythology seated on the throne. This has nothing to do with a love of actual science.

Problems with Vertebrate Evolution Still Remain

Some people seem to think that a new calendar year somehow makes problems from the past year go away, but that is obviously not the case. Purveyors of universal common descent evolution still have to evosplain plausible stories for problems such as the origin of vertebrates.

When looking for fossil evidence of vertebrate evolution, Darwinists have many difficulties, including the timelines. So they are Making Things Up™.

A few weeks back, we talked about the ongoing insurmountable problems of the Cambrian explosion. The brief description is that many complex life forms suddenly appeared in the Cambrian layer with no evidence of evolution — much to the consternation of Papa Darwin. Indeed, invertebrates are often elected to public office.

Evolutionists have attempted to find ancestors of vertebrates through various invertebrate critters such as the sea squirt. However, they still have serious problems with their timeline. The hemichordate is shoehorned in there, but it has no real relationship to fish or the sea squirt, and its phylogeny is debated.

Other "ancestors" are added to the fabulous confabution of confusion, but evolutionists have nothing. Then they present things run through the process of Making Things Up™ as "science". When the evidence is plugged into creation science Genesis Flood models, however, things that are observed make a great deal more sense.

One of the greatest problems for evolutionists is the sudden appearance of complex animal life with no evolutionary precursors, as seen in the Cambrian Explosion. But equally problematic is how complex creatures with backbones (vertebrates) could have possibly evolved. For all practical purposes, no transitional form has been found that links invertebrates like softbodied creatures and arthropods (creatures with a hard exoskeleton) to vertebrates. This glaring gap in the fossil record is just one more example highlighting the lack of evidence for molecules-to-man evolutionary theory.

Vertebrates include fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Living vertebrates exhibit a huge range in size, from a miniature frog found in Papua New Guinea that is only about a quarter of an inch long to the massive blue whale, which is over 100 feet long. Overall, vertebrates comprise only about 5% of all known animal species. The rest of animal life is known as invertebrates, which have no vertebral columns (backbones).

To read the rest of this repudiation of an evolutionary fable, see "The Fossils Still Say No: The Origin of Vertebrates".
