Algae to Crude Oil: Million-Year Natural Process Takes Minutes in the Lab: "Engineers have created a continuous chemical process that produces useful crude oil minutes after they pour in harvested algae — a verdant green paste with the consistency of pea soup...., a slurry of wet algae is pumped into the front end of a chemical reactor. Once the system is up and running, out comes crude oil in less than an hour, along with water and a byproduct stream of material containing phosphorus that can be recycled to grow more algae./With additional conventional refining, the crude algae oil is converted into aviation fuel, gasoline or diesel fuel. And the waste water is processed further, yielding burnable gas and substances like potassium and nitrogen, which, along with the cleansed water, can also be recycled to grow more algae."

Unprecedented Skull Discovery Raises Serious Questions over Evolutionary Premises: "For evolutionists, the skull presents a major problem. According to naturalistic dating methods, the specimen is nearly 2 million years old. Yet, despite the alleged ancient age, the skull is similar to today’s cranial structures....

     "For decades, evolutionists have claimed that different human species evolved at different rates in various locations. However, the skull discovery in Georgia shows that there was actually much more continuity than predicted, with only one distinct lineage of humans....David Lordkipanidze... admitted that the skull discovery in Georgia has forced anthropologists to reconsider long-held evolution premises regarding the history of humans.... Major mainstream outlets are also reporting how the Georgia skull has presented a significant challenge to evolutionary theory." See Evolution versus God

Science education group decides it's time to tackle climate change: "The National Center for Science Education has been defending the teaching of evolution since before Edwards vs. Aguillard, the 1987 Supreme Court decision that declared the teaching of creationism an unconstitutional promotion of religion....the organization played a critical role in the Dover case, which blocked the teaching of creationism's descendent, intelligent design." See Origin of life

Darwin’s mystery illness: "Charles Darwin suffered extreme ill-health for most of his working life....'Some of the symptoms—painful flatulence, vomiting, insomnia, palpitations—appeared in force as soon as he began his first transmutation notebook, in 1837.'...Other symptoms included ‘nausea, headache … sensitive stomach, spells of faintness, twitching muscles, spinning head, spots before the eyes.’ Today we would call this an anxiety-caused psychoneurosis....

     "Darwin’s chief proponent was the most prominent unbeliever, hater of religion, and arch-enemy of the Church of his day—Thomas Henry Huxley, nicknamed ‘Darwin’s bulldog’. Sir Julian Huxley, Thomas’s grandson, who gave the keynote address at the centenary celebration of the publishing of the Origin [of the Species], held in Chicago in 1959, said, ‘Darwin’s real achievement was to remove the whole idea of God as the creator of organisms from the sphere of rational discussion.'...

     "Darwin knew that this was an idea which could and would destroy the faith of millions of believers—and he was the one who was about to unleash it on an unsuspecting world. But what if he was wrong?

     "...if Darwin could have foreseen coming scientific developments, he would have had good reason to be concerned that his theory might one day be proved wrong. ...Gregor Mendel had not yet established and published his work on the laws of heredity and genetics, which said that the characteristics of offspring are passed on from parents according to precise mathematical ratios and do not derive from chance random processes in what Darwin called ‘blending inheritance’. ... Louis Pasteur was just beginning his famous experiments which showed that life (even microbial life) comes from life, not from non-life.

      "The mathematical laws of probability, which show that the odds of life’s occurring by chance are effectively zero, had not yet been applied to the theory of evolution. Molecular biology, with its revelation that the cell is so enormously complex that it could not possibly have been formed by chance, had not yet commenced. The fossil record had not yet been investigated sufficiently for palaeontologists to be able to say, as they now do, that chains of intermediate ‘links’ do not exist." See What Darwin didn't know

Darwin is Wrong: Top Ten List: "1. Spontaneous Generation:..'We don't know how life started on this planet. We don't know exactly when it started, we don't know under what circumstances. It's a mystery that we're going to chip at from several different directions.' Andrew Knoll, Harvard paleobiologist.... 

      “'The chemical steps that led to life on Earth remain a matter of intense speculation.'...In order for Darwin to be right, then the most solid law of biology would have to not be right—the Law of Biogenesis—often called 'the cornerstone of modern biology.'...

     2. “'Gradual accumulation of mutations is never the way eukaryotes evolve …the Cambrian Explosion was caused by symbiosis—not mutation. All symbionts are new species.' Prof. Lynn Margulis, U of Mass-Amherst

     "How did bacteria turn into cells hundreds of times bigger than them, which have things inside them like the nucleus and other organelles? There is a giant total blank in the evolution story right here. Evolutionists will tell you and teach you that mutations did it all—but there is no way to even imagine how mutations could ever create new and original genetic information that would be needed to make the jump from bacteria to cells like amoebas, and then on to creatures made of many such cells, like fish, lizards, and people."

The Theory of Evolution: "Evolution is supposed to have begun by chance, but the statistical odds against one protein molecule forming by chance would be 100160 to one against that happening. Moreover, Cambridge University’s Sir Fred Hoyle (originator of the Steady-State Theory of the Universe) has remarked: 'The notion that not only biopolymers but the operation programme of a living cell could be arrived at by chance in a primordial organic soup here on earth is evidently nonsense'... There is simply no evidence that simple forms of life developed from dead matter, or that complex forms of life developed from simple forms....

      "Another problem evolutionists face is that the fossil record does not provide us with transitional forms of life... The Smithsonian Institution has displayed a characterization of Archaeopteryx, which evolutionists have claimed is the transition from reptile to bird (but which actually has been proven to be clearly a warm-blooded bird with perfect feathers).

      "[Harvard Prof. Stephen Jay Gould] ...stated: '…Can we invent a reasonable sequence of intermediate forms—that is, viable, functioning organisms—between ancestors and descendants in major structural transitions? I submit, although it may only reflect my lack of imagination, that the answer is no.'”
     "Concerning the fossil record and man, there have been a number of so-called 'missing links' discovered during the past century; however, they (e.g., Piltdown Man) eventually have been shown to be hoaxes..."

Texas Considers Protecting those who Question Darwin: "A Texas lawmaker has proposed a legal protection for those in academia who question Charles Darwin's beliefs that man evolved from sludge and today's world is a result of the survival of the fittest."

Catholics and the Evolving Cosmos: "This month marks the 60th anniversary of the papal encyclical 'Humani Generis,' that laid out the Catholic Church's official relationship with Darwinian evolution. The pastoral letter, issued on Aug. 12, 1950 by Pope Pius XII, confirmed, in broad terms, that there is no intrinsic conflict between Christianity and the scientific theory of evolution."

Darwin and eugenics: "Most people are not even aware of the full title of his 1859 masterwork: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.... Indeed, the whole ugly world of eugenics needs to be seen for what it really is: very much an outgrowth of Darwinian thought. As Quinn notes: ‘Darwin played a prime role in bringing about a fateful confusion between cultural and racial differences, conferring new scientific authority and intellectual legitimacy on theories of human inferiority central to eugenics, the most destructive medical movement in history.

      "’Indeed, ‘by the time Darwin published the second edition of The Descent of Man in 1874, he had added Francis Galton’s eugenic theories and Herbert Spencer’s 'survival of the fittest' social philosophy to the mix....

      "Consider his son: ‘In 1912, in his presidential address to the First International Congress of Eugenics, a landmark gathering in London of racial biologists from Germany, the United States, and other parts of the world, Major Leonard Darwin, Charles Darwin’s son, trumpeted the spread of eugenics and evolution. ... Major Darwin foresaw the day when 'eugenics would become not only a grail, a substitute for religion...but a ‘paramount duty’ whose tenets would presumably become enforceable.'

      "'The major repeated his father’s admonition that, though the crudest workings of natural selection must be mitigated by 'the spirit of civilization'..." See Expelled

Daring rodent shows puzzled leopard exactly who's boss by stealing its lunch: "...even the imposing presence of an adult leopard at feeding time is not enough to get between plucky young Rattus Norvegicus (better known as the brown rat) and a free meal."

There Is Scientific Dissent From Darwinism: "Darwinism is a trivial idea that has been elevated to the status of the scientific theory that governs modern biology."

 

Templeton Award-winner Denies Intelligent Design: "A Roman Catholic priest has been named the winner of this year’s Templeton Prize, a $1.6 million award that recognizes 'progress toward research or discoveries about spiritual realities.'... Heller, who serves as a professor of philosophy in the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Kraków, Poland, is known for his work on the overlap of cosmology and theology....

      "Heller writes: 'Adherents of the so-called intelligent design ideology commit a grave theological error. They claim that scientific theories, that ascribe the great role to chance and random events in the evolutionary processes, should be replaced, or supplemented, by theories acknowledging the thread of intelligent design in the universe. Such views are theologically erroneous. They implicitly revive the old manicheistic error postulating the existence of two forces acting against each other: God and an inert matter; in this case, chance and intelligent design. There is no opposition here. Within the all-comprising Mind of God what we call chance and random events is well composed into the symphony of creation."

        This priest shows no respect for either the Bible or the Creator.

 

Is Darwin Kosher? "Carl Feit, who is an ordained rabbi and Talmudic scholar... has always taught evolution -- supported by traditional Jewish source material.... His assessment echoes the official line of the Modern Orthodox rabbinical association, which states that evolution is entirely consistent with Judaism....

    "In his 12th-century masterpiece, 'Guide to the Perplexed,' Maimonides opened the door to a Judaism unfettered by a literal reading of religious texts. For many Jews the persuasive case for evolution does indeed amount to a crisis of faith, but the Maimonidean precedent of figurative interpretation provides a framework within which conflicts arising between Torah and science can be argued away."

 

Carbon Dating Undercuts Evolution's Long Ages: "Evolutionists generally feel secure even in the face of compelling creationist arguments today because of their utter confidence in the geological time scale. Even if they cannot provide a naturalistic mechanism, they appeal to the 'fact of evolution,' by which they mean an interpretation of earth history with a succession of different types of plants and animals in a drama spanning hundreds of millions of years. ... Although creationists have long pointed out the rock formations themselves testify unmistakably to water catastrophism on a global scale, evolutionists generally have ignored this testimony. This is partly due to the legacy of the doctrine of uniformitarianism....

     "With the discovery of radioactivity about a hundred years ago, evolutionists deeply committed to the uniformitarian outlook believed they finally had proof of the immense antiquity of the earth.... However, modern technology has produced a major fly in that uniformitarian ointment...."

 

What a beautiful planet!  Thank You, Lord -- our amazing Creator!!!

 

Evolutionary Psych May Not Help Explain Our Behavior After All:  "[Evolutionary psychology] argues that Pleistocene humans who engaged in certain behaviors left more descendants than did contemporaries who did not engage in those behaviors. As a result, we, their descendants, are wired for the behaviors.... But as Prof. Buller, a professor of philosophy at Northern Illinois University, dug deeper, he concluded that the claims of evo psych are 'wrong in almost every detail' because the data underlying them are deeply flawed."

      Of course, it's flawed. Like the entire bases for evolution, it's based on a utopian socialist quest for scientific evidence for the philosophy of social evolution. Read some of the scientific data on this page: Origin of life.

 

Nature 'mankind's gravest threat': "Giant walls of water that can devastate coastal cities, volcanoes so big that their ash crushes houses 1,500km (932 miles) away, giant earthquakes and asteroid impacts. These are very rare events and, if we are lucky, nothing like them will happen in our lifetimes. ... The last 'super volcanic eruption' was back in April 1815, when Tambora in Indonesia exploded violently, in what was the largest eruption in historic time. The eruption column reached a height of about 44 km (28 miles), ash fell as far as 1,300 km (800 miles) from the volcano - and an estimated 92,000 people were killed. Rare though they are, events this catastrophic need to be taken very seriously."

     Keep in mind, such well-recorded catastrophies pre-date the combustion engines and other man-made technologies blamed for natural environmental changes. These are part of God's creation, and our omniscient Maker warns us that the worst is yet to come -- no matter how clever man's plans. See Signs of the times

 

An Atheist's Apostasy -- Data won over professor; why shun it in class? (UK): "British professor Antony Flew, for decades one of the world's leading philosophers of atheism, publicly announced that he now affirms the existence of a deity. To be sure, Mr. Flew has not become an adherent of any creed. He simply believes that science points to the existence of some sort of intelligent designer of the universe. He says evidence from DNA research convinces him that the genetic structure of biological life is too complex to have evolved entirely on its own. Though the 81-year-old philosopher believes Darwinian theory explains a lot, he contends that it cannot account for how life initially began.

      "...it's refreshing to see that an academic of his stature is unafraid to let new facts change his mind. The philosopher told [AP]... 'My whole life has been guided by the principle of Plato's Socrates: Follow the evidence, wherever it leads.'"

 

Law of the Land: "On Oct. 18, the Dover school board voted 6-3 to add the teaching of 'intelligent design' to its ninth-grade biology curricula. Without identifying who the 'designer' might be, the theory of intelligent design says the complexity and order of the universe and mankind suggest the action of an intelligent cause rather than random chance. ... The ACLU, however, takes no comfort in that assurance and sees intelligent design as a more secular form of creationism, the biblically based view of the Earth's origin. ...the legal group says the Dover policy violates the First Amendment Establishment Clause of the Constitution."

Dragon-slaying Hobbits and biblical truth: "Once upon a time, a long time ago, there lived a village of warrior hobbits. No more than three feet tall or so, they dwelled in caves and hunted down dragons and pygmy elephants with stone weaponry....

     "The overwhelming proof of weaponry and mastery of fire is also a bit embarrassing to some contemporary scientific theories. This just doesn’t match up with what scientists believe is possible, given the brain size of the Hobbits. You can be sure, that if the incontrovertible remains of cooked Komodo dragons and weapons had not been found, scientists would have portrayed Homo floresiensis as a wandering savage....

     "This should bring back memories of contemporary science 'debunking' the existence of biblical people groups and cities, only to find later archaeological proof of them. ... After all, people groups all over the world have 'legends' of a global flood, legends scientists dismiss as superstition. Psychologists have joined the fray, arguing that flood 'sagas' are part of a collective unconscious mythology."

 

Parents take evolution warning to trial: "A trial opened yesterday over whether a warning sticker in Atlanta biology textbooks that says evolution is 'a theory, not a fact' violates the separation of church and state by promoting religion. ... Cobb County schools put the disclaimers in biology texts two years ago after more than 2,000 parents complained that the books presented evolution as fact without mentioning rival ideas about the origin of life, namely creationism....

      "An attorney for the school district... said the sticker was meant to 'encourage critical thinking' and did not imply that evolution was wrong. Mr. Gunn said it was silly to consider the stickers a promotion of religion. 'It doesn't say anything about faith. It doesn't say anything about religion, he said."

 

Anti-evolution paper met with 'hysteria, name-calling': "The publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal of an article expounding and defending 'Intelligent Design' was met with 'hysteria, name-calling and personal attack.'

     the three peer reviewers of Meyer's paper 'all hold faculty positions in biological disciplines at prominent universities and research institutions, one at an Ivy League university, one at a major U.S. public university, and another at a major overseas research institute.' All found the paper 'meritorious, warranting publication,' he said. Moreover, Sternberg told the journal he and Meyer have falsely been labeled creationists by the scientific community, noting: 'It's fascinating how the 'creationist' label is falsely applied to anyone who raises any questions about neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory. The reaction to the paper by some [anti-creationist] extremists suggests that the thought police are alive and well in the scientific community.'" See What Darwin Didn't Know 

 

Glimpse at Early Universe Reveals Surprisingly Mature Galaxies: "This was the most comprehensive survey ever done covering the bulk of the galaxies that represent conditions in the early universe,' Glazebrook said. 'We expected to find basically zero massive galaxies beyond about 9 billion years ago, because theoretical models predict that massive galaxies form last. Instead, we found highly developed galaxies that just shouldn't have been there, but are.' These findings challenge the dominant theory of galactic evolution...."

      No wonder they "challenge the dominant theory of galactic evolution." God's perfect creation was based on His wisdom, not man's. See Our Creator

 

Science on verge of new 'Creation': "The ability to make new forms of life from scratch--molecular living systems from chemicals we get from a chemical supply store--is going to have a profound impact on society, much of it positive, but some of it potentially negative,' said Mark Bedau, professor of philosophy and humanities at Reed College in Portland, Ore., and editor-in-chief of the Artificial Life Journal."

     They can't "make new forms of life from scratch." Our sovereign Lord created all the raw materials in the first place! See The scientists vs. God

E-mails on creation flap 'swamp' Park Service: "Causing the flow of e-mail is the controversy over a book for sale at the Grand Canyon that claims the famous area was formed by the Old Testament flood Noah survived and can be no older than a few thousand years. That contention has some scientists calling for the book to be pulled from store shelves. Most geologists contend the canyon is millions of years old." They are wrong. Look at the evidence and check the next link: 

Catastrophic Plate Tectonics: The Physics behind the Genesis Flood: "The crucial final piece of the puzzle has come from laboratory experiments that have carefully measured the way in which silicate minerals deform under conditions of high temperature and high stress. These experiments reveal silicate material can weaken dramatically, by factors of a billion or more, at mantle temperatures and for stress conditions that can exist in the mantles of planets the size of the Earth.. ." But those who  determined over a century ago to use "scientific evolution" as the foundation for today's social evolution prefer to hide these truth. See also What Darwin didn't know

Temblor was typical of geologically young area, scientists say: "In Monday morning's earthquake, the Santa Lucia mountain range that holds the landmark estate and adjacent towns shrugged its shoulders and then grew with a sudden jolt, probably one to four feet, sending a magnitude 6.5 reminder that California's central coast is a young and restless region." (SJM, 12/23/03) The next link explains the sophisticated recent science behind the rise of mountains and the frequent discoveries of ocean fossils in their lofty peaks:

Dr. John Baumgardner's work related to the Genesis flood: (This scientist is respected by the secular scientific establishment as well as by creationists) "...evolutionists generally feel secure today, even in the face of compelling creationist arguments, because of their utter confidence in the geological time scale. Even if they cannot provide a naturalistic mechanism for macroevolution, they appeal to the 'fact of evolution,' by which they mean an interpretation of earth history in which they believe there has been a succession of different types of plants and animals in a drama spanning many hundreds of millions of years."

Monkeys and atheists: "Thomas Huxley ("Darwin's bulldog") is said to have come up with the most famous defense of the atheist belief that life was created by chance, not God. In a debate at Oxford, he is reported to have stated that if enough monkeys randomly pressed typewriter keys for a long enough time, sooner or later Psalm 23 would emerge...."

The scientists vs. God: A funny story with an important reminder.

Author Debunks Darwin's Theory of Evolution: "In the 144 years since Charles Darwin published his notorious book, The Origin of Species, his theory of evolution has come to be regarded by many as irrefutable fact." S

 

Crumbling Icons: "About 10 years ago, I came across a delightful article in the Italian journal, Rivista di Biologia. Titled 'Be Cautious, Mr. Bates,' the article challenged the Darwinian explanation of how the Viceroy butterfly came to look so much like the Monarch....

      "The most interesting part of the article was the way the authors chided biology professors for presenting speculative ideas as facts. 'Many generations have listened passively to these presentations,' they noted. 'We feel obligated, however, to warn our readers that these peaceful days are coming to an end and that we must prepare for strife.'...They urged their readers to 'avoid the usual practice of leading all discussions in such a way as to glorify Darwinian theory. With SOR students lurking in the class, frail scenarios will no longer be passively accepted.'"

Asking the "Big" Questions: "Each year at about this time millions of students across the country make their way back to campus to continue their unfettered pursuit of truth by asking life’s 'big' questions in a free and liberating educational context; right? Well, unfortunately this ideal isn’t always reached. In fact, sometimes it is even obstructed. As an example, read the following caution that comes from a recent syllabus for a science education class at a major U.S. university:

'Cautions about sources and topics Never cite a religious science source such as ICR, Answers in Genesis, or anything else like that. It is easy to recognize these groups. They are virulently anti-evolution. This caution also extends to the new ID (Intelligent Design) movement - another anti-evolutionary charade. These people are 95% wrong....'
