Intolerant Tolerance from the Secular Science Industry

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Science is supposed to be about  the search for knowledge, and scientists are inaccurately considered to be dispassionate seekers of objective truth. Actually, scientists can be just as avaricious as you and me, and the secular science industry is allowing itself to be hijacked for leftist causes. Creationists, Christians, and other people cannot be tolerated by these sidewinders.

Secular scientists are increasingly active with the political and cultural left. They demand that we accede to their views and are intolerant of Christians and creationists.

In an episode of The Briefing, Dr. Albert Mohler discussed how Brigham Young University was dropped from job postings by a couple of geology organizations because of their morality code. While I reject Mormon views, they have a right to have and practice their beliefs without being coerced to change them. Recently, I asked someone who is involved in hiring at his company if they were interested in views of applicants. That company (like most others, I reckon) are more interested in the ability of people to perform the job. The organizations affecting BYU are giving political and cultural correctness the priority.

I remember a comment someone made when I mentioned that people like David Coppedge have been fired for their creation science views. The commenter said that he didn't want someone with the wrong views of science involved in rocket science when lives are at stake! No, Buttercup, creationists, evolutionists, and others can work side-by-side and get their jobs done efficiently in such fields.

Someone who knows that creationists actually believe and teach can easily see on websites, forums, literature, lectures, videos, and so on that we are not accurately represented. We take our stand on the authority of the Word of God, and our detractors hate us for that. I can testify from observations and personal experience that some anti-creationists and atheists want creationists and Christians negated or effectively destroyed. This hatred includes leftists who promote those things that are contrary to Christian faith and practice. Biblical creationists go back to the foundations of both science and the gospel message, which is probably the main reason that anti-creationists censor and censure us. Ironic how they dictate to us their version of "tolerance", but are so utterly intolerant of those who will not accede to their demands, isn't it?

Animals Designed to Communicate

Those of us who are owned by pets know how they inform us of their needs and desires, whether food for food, affection, or other needs. We have had cats who can express themselves through nonverbal ways, and know when they are pleased. Communication is common in what are considered higher animals.

Humans communicate with animals, and animals with each other. This is by the plan of the Master Engineer, and evolutionists have no explanation. Frenchie, around 2006.

There are several aspects for communication (whether complex or simple), which rules out incidental signals. Some amount of volition between the sender and receiver is needed, and the Master Engineer enabled animals to have some amount of communication with humans and with each other. This, too, is something that proponents of particles-to-pussycat evolution are unable to explain.
Making sense of biological senses is a losing battle for evolutionary theories, and explaining complex creature communication is even worse. Why? Because evolutionists have no real explanation for why communication occurs. Chance processes couldn’t have assembled the key ingredients needed for the elaborate messaging we witness in the animal kingdom.
Higher (i.e., nephesh-possessing) animals routinely send forms of purposeful signals to influence the behaviors of other animals or even humans. To appreciate this, we must distinguish between animals using environmental cues and those employing communicative signals.

The Recapitulation Zombies of Evolution

We think they are dead, but Darwin's acolytes keep using the black magick of scientism and wishful thinking to bring them back. Not living organisms, but their bad ideas. In this case, the idea that an unborn child goes through evolutionary stages in its development. This has been proven false for a mighty long time, pilgrim, but it is still used to justify abortion.

The idea of recapitulation and Haeckel's fake drawings are still brought back to justify abortion and promote evolution.

If scum-to-sorcerer evolution were "settled science" or a fact, there should be no need to use bad logic, misrepresentation, startlingly bad mistakes — and outright fraud. When posting about Haeckel's fake drawings on social media, people said those long-discredited things coupled with the rejected recapitulation idea can be found in modern textbooks. As any knowledgeable propagandist can tell you, concentration and repetition coupled with the Big Lie are effective tools to influence the undiscerning.

Devious Darwinists seem to be trying to make intellectual zombies of the public. One tinhorn said that even though the drawings were fake, the concept is true. Or perhaps he simply does not understand his own mythology. (Also, Dan Rather used forged documents in an attack on George W. Bush: the story was "correct" even though the documents were fake. That's logic, uh huh.) Ja, meine Herren, ze end justifies ze means!  

Some evolutionists are imprisoned by academia and training, knowing nothing other than evolution. Others are reprobates, and when they are shown the truth, they run away, screaming, "Galileo Figaro, the facts are very very frightening!" We must not let them get away with bringing back zombified fake science. People are determined to deny the God of creation.
So entrenched has evolutionary theory become, Darwinists keep looking for ghosts of vanished human ancestry in the human body. It was false when Ernst Haeckel falsified embryo drawings; it is false now. In chapter 10 of Dr Jerry Bergman’s book Evolution’s Blunders, Frauds and Forgeries, Bergman shows how this so-called “Biogenetic Law” that ontogeny (the development of the embryo) recapitulates phylogeny (the evolutionary history of the animal) has been used to justify racism and abortion. He quotes W. J. Bock in  who wrote in Science as far back as 1969...

Getting to the Root of Plant Communication

This post stems from a pair of related articles that will be linked below regarding the surprising abilities of plants to communicate. Earlier, we read about some of this in "Tree Mail in the Wood Wide Web". This field is growing, and researchers are conducting some interesting experiments.  

Strange as it may seem, plants can communicate in interesting ways both above and below ground. This is baffling to evolutionists.

When working on this here post, I commenced to woolgathering about an old Lost in Space episode about semi-intelligent plants that were communicating with each other. They had a ruler of sorts, Tybo, who was a giant intelligent carrot, and wanted to turn the Robinsons (the space travelers) into plants. 

"The Great Vegetable Rebellion" was considered awful by the actors and even the writer, but the dreadful part of Tybo was played well by Stanley Adams (who also played the part of Cyrano Jones on the Star Trek episode, "The Trouble with Tribbles"). Although that show was chock full of silliness, plants can communicate. This post stems from a pair of related articles that will be linked below regarding the surprising abilities of plants to communicate. Earlier, we read about some of this in "Tree Mail in the Wood Wide Web". This field is growing, and researchers are conducting some interesting experiments. 

There are several ways plants communicate above ground, but I think that if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, it does not cry out and say, "Hey! A little help here?" Instead, they communicate through chemistry. They have different kinds, and are not species-ist by only helping out their own kind, but also communicate with others. These messages include warnings of herbivorous predators as well as "calling for help" to draw predators who are chomping on them. Darwinists have no idea how or why this happens, especially outside of the family tree.
Plants have an awkward predicament. Since they’re unable to simply get up and walk, or even shout when in danger, we often think of plants as passive receivers of whatever the environment throws at them. As one group of authors noted, “Plants are dumb and deaf, and plant communication runs counter to human common sense.” However, plants are far from passive. In fact, plants are highly active and communicative. Plant communication comes in many forms and is found across many plant families. But how do scientists explain how and why plants developed this complex system?
To read the rest of this first installment, did into "Plant Communication: How Plants Learned to Talk". Then we have another one to follow.

So we have a little knowledge of the way plants communicate above ground, but apparently roots and such do more than just draw up moisture. They communicate using chemicals below ground, even attracting or repelling microbes. Again, they are not always isolated to their own kinds, but communicate to other species. Frustrates evolutionists, but creationists are not surprised. Impressed at the work of the Master Engineer, but not surprised.
It is well known that plant roots exude chemicals into surrounding soils. Less well understood is the ability of these chemical signals to attract or deter certain microbes. Plants like rockcress, potatoes, sugar cane, and members of the mustard family have been demonstrated to have these effects on the microbe populations in the soil around them.7 Sometimes, microbes return the favor, producing what amounts to growth hormones for rockcress plants. It appears plants are not having a one-sided conversation with their microbe counterparts. Mutually beneficial symbiosis makes sense with God’s originally created “very good” world, and we still see some of this today.

Pigeons Puzzling Evolutionists Again

Charles Darwin tried to do some selection experiments on pigeons, but they remained what they are like they are supposed to do. Much more recently, experiments on the brain power of baboons was studied because of the presupposition that humans are closely related to them. Then came starting experiments involving pigeons.

Primates and pigeons have something in common, but it does not support evolution. Pigeons have surprising cognitive skills.
From Zoologie. Oiseau. / New York Public Library / Jomard, M. (Edme-Fran├žois), 1809
It turns out that pigeons performed surprisingly well a spatial concepts involving fine art and numbers. Problem is, this requires primates to have a certain area of the brain that allegedly evolved for such functions. Pigeons do not have this brain business. Evolutionists resort to the non-explanation of "it evolved", that handy-dandy catch-all excuse for when they have no model or any idea how said evolution is supposed to have happened. That's because particles-to-poultry evolution did not happen, and humans were created separately from animals and birds. You savvy that?
The study was the latest research endeavour that among other things was trying to answer an evolutionary puzzle: Why can people read? This involves the capability for what is known as orthographic processing—being able to visually form, store and recall words, such as writing them in the air in front of you. The problem for evolutionists is that there hasn’t been enough time for the part of the human brain believed to be needed for reading fluency, namely, the visual word form area (VWFA) to have evolved:

Build a Denisovan Face

Remember Hesperopithecus haroldcookii, or his more common name, Nebraska Man? It seems mighty presumptuous to build an individual, his wife, animals, the landscape, all from a single tooth. That was silly enough, but it turned out to be the tooth of a pig that was extinct in that area. Oopsie! This overreach came to mind when I was reading about constructing the facial characteristics of Denisovans from DNA.

Evolutionists want to try to use genetics to determine what the Denisovans looked like. They are actually admitting that they were humans, not evolutionary ancestors.

Scientists got the notion that they can get an idea of what the Denisovans looked like by using DNA, epigenetics, and comparison to humans alive today. Never mind that the DNA has deteriorated over time and is likely to be contaminated. What we do learn is that the Denisovans were another group of humans descended from Adam, and not critters from the failed evolutionary tree. 
Denisovan fossils are represented by only a few teeth, a finger bone, a bit of a mandible (jawbone), and either a leg or an arm bone fragment. These isolated bits and pieces have been found in two locations. One was a Russian cave in the Siberian Altai Mountains close to the borders of Kazakhstan, China, and Mongolia. The other location was farther south in a cave on the Tibetan Plateau. From these teeth and bone fragments, DNA has been sequenced and compared to modern human groups.

Turkana Boy and the Darwin Disciples

The cloud of dust indicated two riders approaching my spread. As it turned out, Stormie Waters and her pal Ruby Slippers rode down from Deception Pass. They were all het up because personal combat was ensuing again at the Darwin Ranch, this time over how to interpret Turkana Boy.

Evolutionists are agitated by a single incomplete skeleton. There is much disagreement, but Turkana Boy is not friendly to Darwinism.

Whenever there are fossils, bones, and artifacts, evolutionary scientists commence to disagreeing. (Actually, that's a good thing in science.) Most fossils and such are sparse and scattered, so there is much to cuss and discuss. Even the more complete Turkana Boy sparks many areas of controversy, including things like his age, whether he is a he or she, the H. Erectus or H. ergaster, and if he or she was deformed. The secular science industry's fake news branch has not given this guy much coverage because the dating methods used rule him out for being an evolutionary ancestor of humans.

There is only one incomplete skeleton. To extrapolate that there was an entire "race" like this is seriously over-reaching, but they did that in the past with Nebraska Man and Piltdown Man. (If Marvel comics or someone does an action thing with Nebraska Man and Turkana Boy, I want royalties.) Also, since bones do not tell the full story of a person or creature, reconstructions are inferred and imagined by the artist. All the debating comes from faulty evolutionary presuppositions; we were created as one race with a great deal of diversity. Turkana is the opposite of helpful to Darwin's disciples.
The Turkana Boy or ‘Nariokotome Boy’ discovery was recently mentioned by Tomkins and a popular website that deals with human evolution. Called a “nearly complete” skeleton and well preserved (though missing most all of the hand and foot bones), it is actually only 40 percent complete based on the assumption that bones from one side of the body can accurately determine the traits of the bones on the other side. They thus can be used to construct some missing bones. Actually, aside from Lucy, Turkana Boy is the most complete evolutionary pre-human skeleton ever discovered. Most claimed early-man fossils consist of a few teeth, plus broken skull and other bone fragments. From these, entire species and populations are concocted by Darwinians.
