Throwing Stones at Barking Distractions

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Day in and day out, people are bushwhacked by assumptions of minerals-to-manicurist evolution. It is presupposed by the secular science industry, so all their observations are made wearing Darwin spectacles . From there, the obedient lapdog science press, movies, television, science documentaries, friends and neighbors all talk evolution. Many people are not even aware that creation science exists. Instead of forcing the atheistic naturalism narrative on the observed evidence , biblical creationists seek to honor God and uphold the authority of Scripture. Background image: Unsplash / Angelo Carniato Creation ministries large and small, as well as individuals, try to make their views known. There's a prairie schooner-full of linked articles available, as well as numerous books, videos, and other materials available. Much of this is free. Of course, we must contend with angry atheists (because evolution is foundational to atheism) and fundamentalist evolutionis

Hot Jupiter is Really Jumping

Image
For decades, governmental and private organizations have been studying space. Some of it was politically motivated at first, but these days, it is primarily in support of atheistic naturalism. Since there is no room for God in that worldview, they dreamed up their own creation mythologies. The current mythology, a highly-Frankensteined Big Bang, continually needs to be patched, repaired, and propped up. One result of the Big Bang is the formation of planets, weakly explained by the best-of-the-worst ( Best-in-Field Fallacy ) accretion theory. Most exoplanets are hostile witnesses. Artist's conception of a hot Jupiter,  NASA / ESA / G. Bacon (STScI) (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) Technology has advanced greatly, so the detection of extra-solar planets has become rather commonplace. Even amateur astronomers are doing it. However, from cosmic to biological evolution and everything between, speculations are not supported by evidence. TOI-2109b is, like other hot

Forensic Anthropology and Darwinian Racism

Image
Although evolutionists try to distance themselves from their racist past, it has been a serious problem since the Bearded Buddha published his tomes. Not all of the public has been fooled by denials of evolution supports. Elements of racism in evolutionary studies are found even today. An area that could be severely damaged is forensic anthropology. (The television show Bones was loosely based on a real forensic anthropologist, portrayed by Emily Deschanel.) Forensic anthropology can be used to determine a victim's race. Skeletons in the' Boat Houses', Herculaneum, Flickr / Big Albert (Public Domain) If enough material is present, forensic anthropologists can determine with a high degree of accuracy the size, sex, and other details regarding the victim. This is where we clarify something: God created only one race. There are no "races", but the term is used as a convenience despite its flawed evolutionary background. More realistically (and biblically), there ar

Giant Millipede Impedes Evolution

Image
If you head north in England, you will reach the ceremonial county of Northumberland. Find Howick and head for the North Sea. If you go for a stroll, be careful walking on boulders, and watch out for overhangs. Boulders fall. Also watch out for millipedes as big as cars. As big as cars? By length, mayhaps, but not by weight or width. And not living. An incomplete fossil was discovered in one of the aforementioned boulders that fell and broke open. Arthropleura , extinct millipede, model. Maker: Peter Roberts, Photographer: Benjamin Healley Source: Museums Victoria ( CC BY 4.0 ) Secular paleontologists commenced to using circular reasoning about the age and former environment. They also used guesswork on their deep time and evolutionary presuppositions, but there's no sign of an evolutionary progression from smaller critters. Their speculations raised other questions that went unanswered. What was found is best explained by recent creation, then rapid burial during the Genesis Floo

Sexual Reproduction Refutes Evolution

Image
When asked how sexual reproduction evolved, especially since an asexual means seems far more efficient, Charles Darwin replied, "I dunno. Hey, kindly give me another cup of that most excellent Ceylon tea, stout fellow!" The Bearded Buddha had no idea, nor do his disciples all these years later. Sexual reproduction is a problem of irreducible complexity on many levels, since many aspects had to be organized by the Master Engineer and working at the same time. What complicates matter further is that different creatures have different reproduction systems. Original image of French social dancing, from the 1800s / NY Public Library Evolutionism is so...utilitarian. Everything has a function, or it doesn't evolve. Critters are going around with an inner mechanism that insists, "Must propagate species." Meanwhile, humans have sex for recreation and intimacy (as well as for money or goods, but animals don't do that stuff). Some animals have amorous congress for ple

Dismantling an Atheist Noah's Ark Meme

Image
by Cowboy Bob Sorensen  Misotheists have a nasty habit of lying and misrepresenting God, the Bible, creation science, Christians, the Genesis Flood, and Noah's Ark — just to name a few. For the Ark, they may be thinking of the cringeworthy " Bathtub" versions  from children's storybooks. Misotheists also like "memes". In internet usage, they are basically captioned pictures. But atheists are not very good at them because they are irrational and easily dismantled by thinking people. I happened across one that was ridiculing Noah's Ark. Noah's Ark at Answers in Genesis, Unsplash / Elias Null Atheopaths don't want us to argue or debate what we  actually  believe and teach. Rather, they try to have us defend straw men. Indeed, when debating, taking cheap shots or using logical fallacies makes the accuser lose credibility. An informed, skilled debater goes after the strong points of his opponent's view and allows a reasoned response. This is rare

Darwinism, the Little Ice Age, and Consensus Science

Image
One area where scientific consensus is lacking is the date range of the Little Ice Age  (LIA), some believing it began in the 1300s and ending around 1850. It was not just one long cold period with major glaciation, but several decreases in temperature. The LIA was in North Atlantic regions, and it was devastating for people living in affected regions. Researchers recently determined the cause of the LIA, and it was not only surprising, but seem contradictory. It appears that the LIA was caused by complicated processes including a warm period. The Frozen Thames , Abraham Hondius, 1677 / Wikimedia Commons As it is with universal common descent evolution, scientists make global climate change analyses and predictions based on insufficient information. In fact, evolutionists and climate alarmists often suppress scientific evidence that is contrary to their narrative. The word  hubris  comes to mind. As I keep insisting, the true spirit of scientific investigation involves analyzing all re

Pterosaur Flight Engineering Revealed

Image
You have probably seen those crime scene shows where the investigators search for stains from blood or other things, and it glows under alternative lighting even though it was invisible under normal conditions. Although such things are exaggerated for the sake of the story, there is also truth to them. In a similar forensic manner (after all, origins science is historical and forensic in nature), researchers examined pterosaur fossil that was probably considered old news and had nothing left to tell. New methods gave insight into its flying ability. Pteranodon from Pixabay / Damian Trochanowski , modified at PhotoFunia , then cropped Darwin's disciples have puzzled until their puzzlers were sore about powered flight in pterosaurs, coming up with schemes that are non-science . Instead of bowing to the Bearded Buddha and mindlessly chanting, " It evolved !", they should consider the fact that the Master Engineer designed living things. This is obvious in the revisited foss

Still No Answer to Primordial Lithium Problem

Image
Because secular scientists have materialistic presuppositions, they are compelled to deny special creation using the complex scientific principle of Making Things Up™. The Big Bang is the atheistic myth of cosmic evolution, and then other evolution stories are hitched to that one. The first three elements of the periodic table, hydrogen, helium, and lithium, supposedly fit Big Bang model predictions. The first two are the most common elements in the universe, so that seems like confirmation bias. Lithium is not cooperating at all. Modified from an image by  NASA  / JPL (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) We need to ride off on a side trail for a moment. A couple of basic science definitions are in order, since people who do not use them frequently get a mite confused. You have a poster of the periodic table of the elements on the wall of your living room, right? Sure, everyone does (mine is out to be resurfaced). It lists atomic numbers, how many protons, neutrons, and

Rescuing the Snowball Earth Scenario

Image
In their efforts to deny the literal history recorded in Genesis, secular scientists have caused themselves a great deal of scientific and intellectual trouble. Some jasper will dream up a scenario that seems plausible at first glance, then the facts contradict it. For example, the Ice Age. Louis Agassiz was not the first to propose an ice age, but he was persistent. It was doubted at first, but when secular geologists realized that it would help them distance themselves from geology caused by the Genesis Flood, they saddled up. Snowball Earth image: Flickr / guano  ( CC BY-SA 2.0 ) In fact, they wanted more ice ages. However, there was this small problem of evidence — t'weren't none. At least, not for the number they wanted spread out over five major periods. The Snowball Earth concept has most of the planet covered in ice, but has problems they just can't skate around. One of these is the " Faint Young Sun Paradox ", where the sun is too cool to provide enough w

Engineered Biology Based on the Bible

Image
First post of the year, and my unregistered assault keyboard is locked, loaded, and upgraded. When doing science, it is important to make sure that one is operating within the framework. This includes presuppositions. As stated before, everyone has a worldview , and that includes things we presuppose to be true without empirical verification. Secular scientists presuppose universal common descent with modifications evolution, biblical creation scientists presuppose that the Bible is true. There are times when those assumptions need to be checked. Galaxy UGC 2885 credits: NASA / ESA / B. Holwerda (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) We have seen numerous times that a naturalistic worldview doesn't marry up with observed evidence, so timelines are modified, data is tweaked, and a prairie schooner-full of problems beset secularists. Instead of playing around protecting the naturalism narrative, secular scientists with integrity should be questioning their presupposition
