What a Long, Strange Trip for Pacific Salmon

Consider the Pacific salmon. Sure, most people know that they swim upriver to spawn. But the life cycle is a marvel, and a testimony to the wisdom of their Creator. They are born in fresh water rivers, change, live in the salt water, change again for fresh water and go back to the same rivers of their births.

Salmon begin their remarkable life-cycle from eggs which have been laid, fertilized, and covered with gravel (sometimes sand) in the upper reaches of a river or stream. Water must flow through the gravel to supply oxygen.

After incubation, tiny alevins (pronounced AL-i-vinz) emerge from the eggs. Alevins have a yolk sac below their bellies which contains sufficient nutrition for their early development. They do not emerge from under the gravel during this alevin stage, but stay there for protection against predators until their yolk sac is fully absorbed.

When they emerge they are 3-4 centimetres (about 1 1/2 inches) long, and are called fry. They make their way to larger freshwater pools for protection from sunlight and predators. The time which fry stay in fresh water varies with the species, and can be from two to 20 months.

Dinosaur Tracks Trample Uniformitarianism

Uniformitarian assumptions such as, "The present is the key to the past", fossils (and tracks) take a very long time to form are being stomped on by a new study on dinosaur tracks. It is not time, but conditions, that explain most of the scientific data. (It's interesting how their fundamentally flawed worldview gives more bad science than good science.) In this case, the evidence further supports the Noachian Flood.
Casual observers are not the only ones who puzzle over dinosaur footprint origins. After all, other animal tracks in mud are not fossilized today because erosive processes rapidly erase them. If a rock layer requires thousands of years to solidify, then how were dinosaur tracks recorded in them?
A team of paleontologists specializing in "ichnology," the study of fossil tracks, just released a radically different explanation for the famous "dinosaur stampede" track ways in Queensland, Australia. Their analysis unwittingly confirmed a creation-flood explanation of dinosaur footprint formation that was first published in 1995.
Researchers had published a series of technical descriptions in the late 1970s and early 1980s of the tracks. The tracks are found in alternating layers of sandstone and thin clay, which appear to have been made by small theropod or ornithopod dinosaurs that took very large steps. In other words, the tracks showed long stride lengths for such small feet. The team interpreted this as having been caused by fast-running, stampeding dinosaurs.

Solar System Conundrum

Titan - NASA/JPL/University of Arizona 
So much space exploration, so much guessing. Planets and moons are showing signs of being "young", with short-lived phenomena. The evidence shows that the solar system is not really billions of years old, and fanciful "explanations" without evidence are put forth. After all, scientists demand an ancient universe and an ancient Earth to fit their evolutionary worldview. As usual, creationists do not have to resort to "explanations" that avoid observed facts.
Why are we seeing young phenomena in the planets if they are billions of years old?  Some scientists are abandoning uniformitarian assumptions and admitting we are lucky to be witnessing them in “rare moments of glory.”
In Nature this week, Maggie McKee interviewed scientists who are struggling with short-lived phenomena in the solar system.  The subtitle of her article, “Caught in the Act,” states, “We may be seeing some of the Solar System’s most striking objects during rare moments of glory.”  Her first two paragraphs elaborate why this is unsettling for some:
Ever since Copernicus evicted Earth from its privileged spot at the centre of the Solar System, researchers have embraced the idea that there is nothing special about our time and place in the Universe. What observers see now, they presume, has been going on for billions of years — and will continue for eons to come.

Misrepresented Missing Link

stock.xchng/bugdog
The saga of puijila is not only a marvelous example of horribly misinterpreting data because of fundamentally flawed evolutionary presuppositions, but circular reasoning to "prove" evolution. Then, the desperate-for-evidence evolutionists and the journal Nature actually misrepresented the findings. They really otter know better. Of course, creationists do not have these problems, as the evidence fits the creationist worldview.
For 150 years, evolutionists had not been able to find evolutionary ancestors for the aquatic group of mammals called pinnipeds—the seals, sea lions, and walruses. This was odd because they had found well over 15,000 fossil pinnipeds but they had not found any land ancestors that were on the way to becoming a seal, sea lion or walrus. Their ‘oldest’ fossil, a creature called Enaliarctos, looked like a modern sea lion, with fully aquatic front and back flippers, not feet or even webbed feet. Such a wealth of fossils but no transitional creature fossils posed a conundrum for evolution scientists. For creation scientists, this was not a problem at all but the expected fossil pattern: Pinnipeds were created ‘as is’, and did not evolve from another animal, hence the missing links should not be found.
In 2009 Puijila darwini was announced as the latest ‘missing link’ found, a triumph of evolution. This was published in Nature, regarded as the most prestigious journal in the world. Richard Dawkins waxed lyrical about this fossil:
“Puijila neatly straddles the gap between land and water in the ancestry of pinnipeds. It is yet another delightful addition to our growing list of ‘links’ that are no longer missing.”
According to Dr Carl Werner… it looks like the authors of the Nature article seriously misrepresented and misinterpreted the fossils.
You are encouraged to finish reading "Another major ‘link’ fails", here. Interestingly, I found out that not only is today the anniversary of this Weblog, but it's the birthday of the author of the linked article! Happy birthday, Don!

Reloading the Silver Bullet for the Evolution Werewolf

stock.xchng/busangane (modified) 
The werewolf of evolution is dead. But it will not stay in its grave because acolytes of evolutionism keep giving it unnatural life. So, we keep taking it down with silver bullets of logic.

Evolutionists claim that logic and truth are products of the mind, and therefore, products of evolution. Anyone with half a brain will realize that this is absurd. Just ask any psychologist whether or not people have different concepts of reality and logic.

Further, brain chemistry changes. I am a diabetic, and blood glucose levels can affect my moods. So do the blood pressure medications. I used to be on antidepressants, and those things modify brain chemistry. The "logic" of a person with clinical depression or a psychotic disorder does not match with actual logic, it is ruled more by emotions than reason.

Sometimes it's hard to be a human.

So how can truth, logic, perceptions of reality, mathematics, morality and more be the product of chemistry? They cannot. And this is another silver bullet into the moldering hide of evolution.
Can Darwinian evolution explain the unchanging logic underlying our thought processes, and our universal awareness of truth?

To answer this question, let's first consider the brain itself. If Darwinian evolution is true, then of course logic and truth are "products" of the the material brain. In other words, logical thought processes must come from the brain. And awareness of truth must come from the brain.

And if logic and truth are unchanging and universal, it stands to reason that the very mechanism which produces them - the brain - must also be immune to change. But as can easily be demonstrated, this is simply not the case.

Consider the following ways that our brains, along with the way that we think, vary from person to person.
Read the rest of "The Silver Bullet — Reloaded". It's a howling success.

Armed and Dangerous Shrimp?

A fascinating fun fact is that the pistol shrimp actually shoots its prey. It has to do with the claw, compressed bubbles, amazing speed and temperature — and utterly baffling to the evolutionist. Like other critters, everything must be in place at the same time, or nothing works. Piecemeal evolution offers no plausible model or explanation.
Do you like shrimp for dinner? Well don’t mess with this pistol packing hombre! Despite being a diminutive 1–2 inches (3–5 cm) long, the pistol shrimp normally has one regular claw but also has an oversized claw which operates as an acoustic weapon capable of producing ‘gunshots’ reaching over 200 decibels (much louder than a jet engine!).
The violent implosion of this cavitation bubble produces the sound, the pressure of which is strong enough to kill small fish.
Unwary victims approaching within an inch or so (~4 cm) of this oceanic ‘bush-whacker’ may find themselves staring down the barrel of a gun that is literally cocked and triggered in a fashion reminiscent of a Wild West six-shooter.
Mosey on over and read the rest of "Pistol packing … Shrimp?!"
