Nobody's (Super)Fault But Mine?

This is a deep article. Well, the topic is hundreds of miles deep. Specifically, the powerful earthquake in the Pacific Ocean near Kamchatka in May, 2013. Scientists speculate that faults at such depths are caused by a sequence of events, including frictional melting and cold plate subduction, leading to out-of-control expansion of ruptures and subduction.

The powerful earthquake on 12 November 2013 near the Kamchatka Peninsula supports creation science global flood models.

The earthquake was powerful and huge, with a tremendous velocity in the rupture itself. The details of this quake support models and papers by Drs. Tim Clarey, Steve Austin and John Baumgardner. What is seen is strong evidence for superfaults in the global Noachian Flood!
A magnitude 8.3 earthquake recently struck deep below the Sea of Okhotsk in the Kuril-Kamchatka subduction zone just south of the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula and 950 miles north of Japan. It ruptured along a 110-mile-long fault about 378 miles below the surface where the Pacific Plate is being subducted, or pulled down, beneath the ocean crust. Though it’s been hailed as the largest deep earthquake ever recorded, the Okhotsk upheaval pales in comparison to the earthquake activity suspected during the great Flood. However, it does provide an excellent model of what may have transpired at the time of that catastrophic event long ago.
What perplexes scientists the most is the earthquake’s great depth. Publishing in the journal Science, Lingling Ye et al. noted, “The occurrence of earthquakes in the depth range from 400 to 720 km [250 to 450 miles] (the mantle transition zone) has long been enigmatic, given the immense pressure exerted by the overlying rock mass on any fault surface.”

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I don't keep my soul alive
It's nobody's fault but mine

The devil he taught me to roll
The devil he taught me to roll
How to roll that invisible line
Well, it's nobody's fault but mine

I've got a Bible in my house
I've got a Bible in my house
If I don't read it, my soul dies
Well, it's nobody's fault but mine

My sister she taught me to read
My sister she taught me to read
I didn't read it, lost my life
It's nobody's fault but mine

If I don't read my soul to life
Well, nobody's fault but mine

Denisovans and Neaderthals Got Around

The more we learn about early humans, the more we realize that they were just that — humans. Ideas based on evolutionary presuppositions are presented of semi- or recently-evolved brutish humanoids, but evidence refutes those images. DNA does not give any indication of intelligence. Genome sequences from Denisovans and Neanderthals show the differences between them and modern humans is quite small. And just like modern humans, they traveled. They did a fair amount of breeding. And interbreeding. Which by itself indicates that they were human.

The biology, travel and similarities help affirm what we already know that was written in Genesis. If they would drop their evolutionary assumptions, these scientists could really learn something.
Like the Denisovan genome recovered from a finger bone, a Neanderthal toe from the very same Siberian cave of wonders has yielded up secrets of humanity’s past. Not surprisingly, the ancestral web evident from the genomic analysis published in Nature is quite consistent with the story of our past found in the Bible’s book of Genesis.

Human Groups Isolated but Related

The high-quality complete genomic sequence obtained from the bone — a Neanderthal woman’s toe — confirms other genetic data suggesting that Neanderthals and Denisovans had mixed with each other and with early modern humans. The extent of the intermingling of people groups seems somewhat limited, however, as we would expect in the wake of humanity’s dispersion from the Tower of Babel.
“Admixture seems to be common among human groups,” says lead author Kay Prüfer. “Nevertheless,” Prüfer, Svante Pääbo, and their colleagues write, “Our analyses show that hominin groups met and had offspring on many occasions in the Late Pleistocene, but that the extent of gene flow between the groups was generally low.”

Kangaroos Give a Mob of Evidence for Creation

G'day. The kangaroo is a famous symbol of Australia, but many people outside of there do not know much about them. Sure, the occasional magazine article and television documentary, but those are usually skewed from an evolutionary perspective. (Scientists do not know how they evolved and have no support from the fossil record, but they have some faith-based speculations asserted as fact that they did evolve.) It turns out that there are several species of kangaroo. There is much more to them than many of us have realized, and the roo testifies of the Creator.

Kangaroo and Joey / stock.xchng / GcJ
That tail provides stability and is used for support in combat with those powerful feet. And don't discount the arms for self-defense, either. You want jumping? That depends if you want distance or height, one species is more likely to excel than the other. The birth and development of the joey (offspring) is also amazing. Did you know that the mother can produce different kinds of milk for different joeys? The Kangaroo is the Australian national symbol, but has become a pest. They can be very tall and strong — here, take a look.
Among the world’s most curious creatures is Australia’s amazing kangaroo. He appears standing proud and tall on the Australian coat of arms, and has been a rallying symbol for national sporting teams.
Benign of face, bottom-heavy of build, kangaroos outclass most of the animal kingdom in the long and high jump, boxing, and karate. Born a mere 1–1.5 centimetres (half-inch) long, and weighing less than a gram, kangaroos can grow taller than a man. As with most other marsupials, one of the three orders of mammals, they raise their young in body pouches. But kangaroos have another advantage—an expectant female can retain an embryo in ready reserve for months, until the conditions are right for its continued development.
Kangaroos outclass most of the animal kingdom in the long and high jump, boxing, and karate.
When it comes to marsupials, no place on earth can count a greater variety than the island continent of Australia. Of 250 existing species, some 170 of them—including wombats, bandicoots, and kangaroos live only in Australia or its immediate surroundings. All the rest, except the opossum found in the United States and Canada, are limited to Latin America.

Audio-Video Podcast 11 — Thanks to Atheists and Evolutionists!

The MP3 version can be downloaded here.

Taking a break from the informal logical fallacies. It's time to thank the haters for their assistance! Most criticisms are emotional and childish. But what do you do when there's a grain of truth to them? Learn from them! For me, they have helped me to sharpen my arguments, repent of my misuse of images and find better ones, and more.

More Modern Dinosaur Sightings?

Most evolution believers presume that dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years. But this disregards the soft tissue discoveries, archaeological evidence and even modern eyewitness accounts.

Using their worldviews based on their presuppositions, the Evo Sith generally insist that dinosaurs became extinct millions of years ago. Historical evidence to the contrary is rejected out of hand because it does not fit their beliefs. This is also the primary reason that the existence of dinosaur soft tissues is explained away (because it is impossible to evolutionists), often through very unscientific science and assumptions. 

The existence of dinosaurs in recent times threatens evolution itself because molecules-to-man evolution requires "deep time". Although the scientific evidence is against an ancient Earth, the evolutionary propaganda value of dinosaurs would be destroyed if they were found, or if evolutionists admitted that they existed much more recently than had been assumed. Can't have the recent creation as described in Genesis get more support, can we? Nope. That would mean there's a Creator...

I posted some material about dinosaur sightings in modern times, and it looks like even more may have been observed.
A dinosaur actually living in the world today? According to a report in Papua New Guinea’s The Independent newspaper, a ‘dinosaur-like reptile’ was seen on two occasions in the Lake Murray area, in Western Province.
. . .
The creature was described as having a body ‘as long as a dump truck’ and nearly two metres wide, with a long neck and a long slender tail. It was walking on two hind legs ‘as thick as coconut palm tree trunks’, and had two smaller forelegs. The head was similar in shape to a cow’s head, with large eyes and ‘sharp teeth as long as fingers.’ The skin was likened to that of a crocodile, and the creature had ‘largish triangular scoops on the back.’

Spectacular Saturn

On our last journey into the solar system, we visited Jupiter, the largest planet. It has the largest mass of the planets. Surprisingly, we learn on our trip to Saturn that although it is the second largest planet, it has the lowest density. If you could find a tub of water large enough, it would float! Although other planets have systems of rings (only discovered comparatively recently), Saturn's ring system is not only striking in appearance, but amazing in complexity.

The moons of Saturn (62, they currently think) are also complex. And baffling. The second largest planet in the solar system has the second largest moon, Titan. It is the only moon with a thick atmosphere, which presents difficulties to evolutionary astronomers and cosmologists — the methane in the atmosphere should have been made to go away after a few million years, and those people claim that the universe is billions of years old. The placement, orbits and activities of several of the other moons are also fascinating.

As usual, the features of the planets and their moons defy evolutionary origins models and give silent testimony of not only the Creator, but of a recent creation.
When people peer into a telescope and see Saturn for the first time, the typical response is “Wow!” All the other planets appear as simple disks with a few surface features, but Saturn’s rich system of rings makes it look more like a piece of celestial jewelry. Composed of trillions of tiny moonlets—particles of water ice—these rings orbit Saturn, giving it a stunning, three-dimensional appearance quite different from any other planet.
Basic Properties
Saturn is a slightly smaller version of Jupiter in most respects. It is made of hydrogen and helium gas and trace amounts of molecules such as the methane and ammonia that give rise to its yellow color. As with Jupiter, colorful clouds are stretched into belts (dark-colored) and zones (lightcolored). However, Saturn’s belts and zones are more subtle than Jupiter’s.
Nine times the size of Earth in diameter, Saturn has the lowest density of any planet and, amazingly, would actually float in water. At a distance of 890 million miles from the sun, Saturn takes 29.5 years to complete just one orbit.
Powerful storms large enough to be seen from Earth occasionally develop in Saturn’s atmosphere and appear as bright regions within the belts and zones. Although Saturn has no permanent storms like Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, its intermittent storms can last for many months. A Great White Spot manifests roughly every 30 years during the planet’s northern hemisphere summer and can periodically occur in off-years as well, as it did in 2010.

The End at the Beginning

New Year, 2014, Piltdown Superman, God, Bible, Jesus, Evolution, Creation, Creation Science, Cowboy Bob Sorensen

A different kind of post today, just some personal reflections. (See what I did there?)

Some of us tend to think darker thoughts a bit more often than others. On this first day of the New Year, I want to tell you about my impending demise. No, I don't know when it will happen, but scientists have shown two things. First, people are more likely to believe something if it is prefaced with "scientists have shown..." Second, everybody dies.

"Big deal, Cowboy Bob. We all know that."

I've been wondering what I will leave behind. Material things all wither and fade away. Some take longer than others, but they all go away. Some people think that things on the Web will last forever, but who knows — and if it does last, who will find it in the clutter? No, what I want to leave behind are transcendent things like knowledge and spiritual values.

Evolution is a cancer. This Weblog alone has about 670 posts and articles that show how evolutionary thinking has hindered scientific advances, been a "scientific" excuse for abortion, racism and other evils of society. It has also been an excuse to disregard the existence of God. That is tragic. The lies of millions (or billions) of years and of evolution are not knowledge, they are spiritual barriers.

I want to help show the folly of evolution and point honest seekers to resources, but it is not just about "winning". (There are Christians who, I believe, want to simply win arguments and are full of pride, and have no business claiming to be apologists. They should read this article.) There is a Creator, he makes the rules, he has shown himself to us through the Bible, and I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. People can be arrogant and foolishly pretend that there is no God, but the consequences are eternal and unchanging.

Creationists do not simply use "God of the Gaps" or similar nonsense. We want to know just as much as anyone else, and there are fully credentialed creationist scientists who do serious research into God's creation and the judgement of the Genesis Flood, among other things. Amazingly, people who think they are smarter than we are simply because they reject God often have to be informed by us about their own viewpoints and their logical fallacies. And there are people like me who will be blunt at times to get their attention in the hope of sparking some thought.

I will not apologize for my stance on the inerrancy of the Bible or a literal six-day creation about six thousand years ago. We all have presuppositions for our worldviews, and I am not going to set aside the truth of God's Word in favor of secular, naturalistic interpretations of scientific evidence. But I am willing to continue using the evidence to refute evolution and affirm creation. Let the mockers and stalkers rage and congratulate each other, they will not change the truth. 

Using my stockpile of unregistered assault keyboards that are stored in a bunker that I sublet from Ian Juby, I will continue to bring you news, occasional articles, my viewpoints, links, graphics, humor and more. Further, I hope and pray for the two things that I wish to leave behind when I'm gone. One is that some people will be inspired to keep working to spread the truth of creation and the Bible. Second, that some of my readers will come to know Jesus Christ through my efforts, whether directly or indirectly. These are what I want to leave behind.

Science is great. So is scientific progress. Secularists suppress evidence against evolution and present only the favorable (and often distorted, even dishonest) material. That means people are handicapped in the area of critical thinking. They are deceived, and will enter eternity. My fight continues. 

May God bless you in the coming year. May you come to know Jesus soon. May those who know Jesus deepen their walk with him and their commitment to his Word.
