How Many People Realize That Darwin was Off?

“The wages of sin is death…” No matter how many excuses we offer for our actions, when it comes to sin the result is always death! One sin that many committed during Darwin’s day was “racial prejudice” and that disease is still around today. One way of belittling people of other “races” is to compare them to animals such as monkeys. Darwin’s creation story is just his way of justifying his racist ideals. He sees living creatures as gradually transitioning into “higher forms” over numerous generations.

To use one’s reputation as a springboard for spreading lies about the Creator and mankind is cruel at best and insane at worst. To say that the Creator had no active involvement in the Creation of life on this planet is wicked and speaks against mankind and the One who put us here! Now the infectious disease called, Darwinism, had spread throughout the West and is moving into the East as well.

Darwinism and it’s self-centered brother, “science”, are enjoying ill gotten credibility currently and there are powerful organizations in place to enforce that status. Evolution is the only creation story allowed in public education at this time. There have been no new kinds of creatures that have ever been identified since Darwin. Adaptation seems to be at work in some, but that is always very limited. Our genetic machinery is very good at finding and correcting errors, those that get past those protections MUST not interfere with health and vitality, but they generally do. In humans genetic errors (aka diseases) number in the thousands and that number is increasing.

If anything is “evolving” it is in the wrong direction as new mutations emerge and cause new problems. The truth is that there are no “races” of human beings. Just one race with a wide range of skin color and other traits. The belief that there are races of man, or racism is a Darwinian notion and comes off the heals of evolutionary and like thinking. Today, Darwin would have been considered “red-neck” or a racist bigot, the inspiration for the KKK and neo-Nazis and the like.

We’ve learned a lot since then. Achievements in academics, the arts, business, etc. have debunked Darwin’s creation myth as far as mankind is concerned. All so-called “races” have made equal contributions in all areas. But, the disease of Darwinism continues to spread and turn children against their parents and people everywhere against the God who made them.

Making Time

This is an interesting expression. You “make time” by getting somewhere faster then usual. If you go over the speed limit on the way to work and get there 5 minutes earlier than usual, you’ve “made” a little time for your self in a sense. Especially if you’re “running late”! Any way you can stay ahead of schedule “buys” you a little time. What that time is used for depends. You may want to take a nap in order to recover from the anxiety of speeding and “taking those chances”.

There are other ways that we like to “make time”. Making time can be very useful if you make up a theory about past events. What’s a few million years here and there? None of us were there to see if they ever happened. But, tall tales never caught momentum in western civilization the way they have with followers of Darwin. “Natural selection” can create all sorts of new creatures, you just need to create the time needed. (Never mind the fact that nature stubbornly insists on maintaining the status quo.) Still, they say “no problem, just sprinkle that magic time dust over it” as if that could make nature comply to fanciful human notions.

So, if all of this Darwinian stuff IS nonsense, what then? First of all, we don’t have the foggiest how long ago living things first appeared on this planet. Why does it really matter? Second, there is a record of how it got started. I suggest we suffice with the Scriptures and preserve that mystery.

“…redeeming the time, for the days are evil…”

How Does Darwinism Survive?

Darwin’s theory is horrible factually, intellectually(I could care less about science!) and logically. The fact that “science” has backed it whole heartedly really emphasizes just how blind and lame the big enterprise is. But, the reality is, how can science be reconciled to its perceived nemisis, the seemingly less sophisticated ‘creationists’? But, the simple argument called, “intelligent design” has sealed Darwin’s fate. Now any “scientist” that tries to refute ID is left being made to look like a kook.

To the average public it’s obvious that ID is an evolution killer. It’s the intellectuals and scientists that have for so long bashed and belittled creationists that can’t seem to break free of the antichristian mindset. The mindset that was set in place by Huxley and the X-Club, that science had replaced Christianity as the herald of a new age of human evolution and achievement instead of reconciliation, peace and devotion to our Creator thru Christ Jesus. Thomas Huxley believed that Biblical Christianity had vanished by the 2nd century and that it was now up to scientists to eliminate all vestiges of Christianity and teach the world that we are accidents of nature and our lives are meaningless and death is final.

Science is the faith of death contrasted by the faith in Jesus is life. Jesus is reality and science is a pathetic farce. And yet science holds fast to its misplaced faith in Darwin and itself. They even dig in their heels and declare some of themselves as, “evolution scientists”! They are doing all they can to paint a castle on the crumbling shack. Not a single new form of life worthy of the title, “genus” has ever been documented out of the sum 1,000,000 or so known species of life. Much less anything we can possible call a new, “order”, “family”, etc. For all we can tell natural biological adaptation is hard pressed to even produce enough change to come up with something barely resembling a new “species” even with all it’s variety of definitions.

I have had the good fortune to have a good handle on what evolution theory is having a BS in Biology and it’s helped me see thru the arguments of the evolutionists. It’s important to really digest the principles of physics, genetics, geology,  and so on. To tease out what has real support, like reversion to wilds, and what doesn’t, like common-descent. When you see the artistry in nature, you can no longer ignore a real Creator as its Artist sublime!

So, how does Darwinism survive? Because those that see thru it are cowards, too proud, too comfortable perhaps. All I can say is the Creator is watching….

Maybe They Should Scrap It

Cosmology has to be the bologna king! Where do they come up with this stuff? A nova, the “birth of a star”, a “planet made of diamonds”, “gases condensing in space”? Science is lost in space and Dr. Smith is sure that the robot is just a big babbling buffoon. They tell us these objects out there are “light years” away and yet they know everything about them. Their age, how they got there, what planets are circling the stars, their size, composition, atmosphere contents and if they are anything like earth. The whole science of cosmology is well, far fetched.

If these guys really want to make a profound statement about the cosmos, it would go more like this, “we are astonished by all we see and the mystery of it all just keeps growing!” If they were wise, they’d just leave it at that. But, that’d be only partly true, cause we know that the Creator engineered it. Their purpose is to be lights for us and help us keep track of days and seasons. Anything beyond that is second guessing at best and vulgar for the most part.

First there was “atomic theory”, then there was “quantum” theory and they “string theory” and now it’s the “Higg’s Boson” or the “God Particle” and who knows what they’ll dream up next. Sometimes I wonder if E=mc2 wasn’t some tongue in cheek from the great theorist. It really seems that Einstien was just using the speed of light squared in the equation as a handy expression of enormity since the units that each represents aren’t even given. It just sounds like a clever was of stating that there’s a load of energy available in them thar masses! It’s relative, that’s all.

Well anyway, my point is that if scientists are really after the truth and any understanding of this reality, they ought to first confess that what those heavenly bodies are and how they were made is a MYSTERY! And if they were honest, they’d just leave it at that! Sorry folks the show is over, gasses don’t compress in space to make baby stars. All that stuff is way too far away to really be understood!

Simplistic Science

I’ve been thinking about how pathetic science has become as a result of taking it’s prefered path down the atheistic road to nowhere. I try to keep track of the comments made of various sites about ID and give the antichristian scoffers something to chew on. Just throw out a little bone to see if they can grasp the fact that Darwin was out to lunch with his self-made creation fable.

Science has lifted up its voice against our real Creator and His people and the end of that sort of sin is never good! Think of it, is there another religion in all the world that has invented a more simplistic and pathetic creation myth as evolution? It’s like saying that the Mona Lisa is a finger painting made be a 2 year old only several orders of magnitude more vile.

I’m saying all this because I know that there are still a few out there that care about the truth. So, I want you to know that the Spirit of Jesus the Christ IS the Spirit of Truth! If anyone will come to Him, they will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free!

So, I’m embarassed to admit that I ever had respect of science and I feel badly for anyone who still does. They have less understanding of what life is really about then a newborn and yet they talk like they have just about all the universe figured out.

The scientist boasts of his published babblings about this and that,
that tickle the ears of his peers with a rat a tat tat.
He pursues his research and experimental studies,
To skillfully pursuade his doubtful buddies.

In Darwin’s pigeon cage he sits
though when the creationist rattles it
He won’t fly out but rather fits.
He prefers the voice of the dead man,
that has imprisoned his soul.

His pride soars above the heavens,
his mind flys far above his head,
The scientist goes up to his highest perch,
To fool himself that his Creator is not.

Darwin had many pigeons then and many more today.
They still sit in his cage and every so often a creationist,
Comes along to try to clean his mess out.
With great wise sounding words the pigeon talks down to him
They smear their mess on them if they can.

But, who really cares what the scientist has to say,
Other than the other pigeons in Darwin’s cage?

What’s Really Understood About Space?

NASA's Voyager Spacecraft

 

Two similar spacecraft that were launched back in the 70’s are approaching the edge of our solar system. They both have nuclear powered batteries that allows them to keep their electrical systems alive indefinitely without depending on solar panels.  As the light from the Sun becomes less intense to the point that they are not of much use.  At some point it is expected that the direction of motion of the solar wind will change and cease to be predominantly from our sun signalling their departure from the sphere of our star’s influence and entrance into “interstellar space” as they say.

NASA expects this to happen for the further of the two craft at any time assuming that this threshold is uniformly spherical in shape. Assuming also that this is what will happen at all since such an event has never been studied directly in this way. How will radio transmission be effected by this transition? Will the power of the signal fall off somehow or remain the same? We can only guess what will happen. There will no doubt be some surprises in store as old theories make way for new ones.

As I’ve said before, we must have a deep respect for the Creator before ever coming to a real understanding of His Creation and that includes “space”. Those that assume that the universe was “spontaneously generated” like much of “modern science” rely completely on existing physical laws to explain everything about everything. Once you come to realise that there is a Creator behind it all, you know the physical “laws” are completely plastic to this Creator. I prefer to call them the “properties of the present physical state” which have been put into effect at this time. How long this has been so and how long it will continue is impossible to determine and is totally up to this immeasurably, immensely powerful person.

The same person that humbled Himself and took on the form of a humble servant as Jesus.

What Happened to the Garden?

People will spend their whole lives trying to solve various mysteries and enigmas. For some of us an unsolved murder case can frustrate us to the point of obsession and many sleepless nights. For others maybe it’s the so called Bermuda Triangle, or maybe the chemical makeup of a distant star. Speculation is a human passion that often proves to be way out in left field. Especially about things that we cannot directly observe like if there is life on other planets and such.

I suppose there’ve been entire books written on the subject of the Garden of Eden. We have a little information about the place including a brief description of its location. But, we can speculate all day long, or year long and never come any closer to solving the mystery.

However, if you get to know the One that made the garden, you will understand that many of the creatures around us were introduced to the world in that place. They may have looked somewhat different in those days after so many generations and mutations eating away at their genetic code.  How much have they changed and how many new creatures have been introduced since then? We can speculate all we want about the animals behind all those amazing fossils and such and miss the point.

We are here along with a huge world full of all sorts of creatures and we have no way of going back to when they arrived here and watch the process as it was unfolding. The more I’ve studied the various creatures around me and in my travels, the more I’ve come to appreciate them as they are, today!  I don’t have to scrutinize them and dissect and collect them in order to understand them, I can just look at them with awe and wonder! We have so much to be thankful for with all these creature engineered with great care in order to support our existence for our brief sojourn on this great planet!

Looking Through a Glass Darkly

US public tv has been running a series of new shows about the universe. It chronicles the “advances” in our understanding of the universe. The “big bang”, the Hubble Telescope, “dark energy” and “dark matter” and stuff like that. First there was the “red shift” and the “expanding universe”, then there was the “big bang idea”, then the establishment for the “age” of the universe at “13.7 Billion Years” based on the supposed accelleration of objects out there and so forth.

They make is sound as if everything has been figured out! The wonderful achievements of man with celebrations and award ceremonies! Now, there are the challenges of “dark energy and dark matter” to tackle. The space telescope has revealed a vast and complex universe most of which is a visual artifact from many millions of years in the past. We have no way of actually telling if any of it is still really there if it’s much further out past our own little galaxy, the “Milky Way”.

In fact, we have only just recently managed to send a probe out beyond this tiny solar system. We think we know so much about the universe and yet as this lonely probe leaves our solar system into open space there is bated breath waiting to find out what open space is really like. So, what’s just outside of our solar system is still a mystery. That might only be a few “light hours” away. So, how much do we REALLY know about these phantoms that we see in the night sky. So many of which existed million and even billions of years ago if they are right about that. For all we know, they may have been removed long ago leaving a visual record a long stream of radiation that could run out at any moment.

Science is a game of educated guessing and NOTHING MORE! The fundamental rule of modern science is, “seeing is believing”. A sort of “photon-based” reality show based on fringe ideas that grab our imaginations. Just like so many scifi shows that paint a loosly “science” based picture of space, the future, etc. But, never seem to touch on financial accountability. How even crude space flight programs like the space shuttle can bring NASA to it’s knees.

Jesus worked long and hard to cultivate a place for mankind to be introduced. He knew full well the price He would have to pay for His efforts and hard work to give us a place that we could enjoy and hopefully appreciate. Maybe you find it hard to believe. But, that won’t make it any less true. Reality is reality.

In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made for Him and by Him. Without Him was not anything made that was made. He came to His own and His own received Him not. But, to as many as received Him He gave them power to become the sons of God. Even to as many as believed on His Name. (The Book of John chapter one)

Carry Things Too Far

What happens when humans come up with an basic understanding of how things seem to work? We often give that understanding a broader application than we should. For instance, we think that rooms should generally be square at the corners. So, we begin putting everything in boxes, even in nature and theology and so on.

It’s well understood that the pressure of the soil, sand and rock accumulates as you go deeper into the earth just as the pressure continues to increase as you go deeper under water. This is why submarines all have a depth limit established based on the ability of its hull to withstand the pressure of that water.

But, somehow we have failed to account for the fact that earth is a sphere. Mass produces gravity and attracks objects toward its center of mass. The problem is that the center of a massive sphere like a planet has mass all around more or less equally surrounding and the effect cancels all gravity out and objects at the center of planets are weightless.

All this is pretty well understood. But, the implications are for some disturbing. Most of the “experts” I’ve heard on this are quite sure that all objects in the immediate vacinity of this point of weightlessness would be crushed by the “accumulative weight” of everything about it. This is what happens when you carry an idea too far and that “expert” status generate momentum for limited observation.

What really happens in the case of a planet, is that the gravity rolls off once you reach a point which I would call, “the spherical horizon effect”. As the mass surrounding an object increases above an object passing into a spherical mass towards the center, the pressure of that mass above the object gradually will deminish as the weight of the material get’s lighter and lighter.

So, the material above at some point begin to apply less pressure then even the atmosphere upon the surface of the sphere. There could be a gas “bubble” where the low pressure could allow the gaseous state to exist. And not just a little foot diameter one. But, an extensive one perhaps hundreds of miles across. In the low pressure conditions at the central region, most gases would work their way to the vast central cavity.

But, this kind of thinking tends to be repulsive to the “experts” I suppose since there is a so-called “hollow earth” movement that claims that there lives a civilization of non-human people that live there. Now, I don’t know about all that! But, admitting that planets may very well have a gaseous cavity of some measure at their cores doesn’t add much credence to the “hollow earth” people stuff. So, why not just admit that stuff gradually gets lighter as you go deeper in the earth and somewhere that crushing force from material above begins to decrease till it’s completely weightless.

Chapter One of Darwin’s “Favored Races” Book is Mostly Breeder Bull

Been reading Charlie Darwin’s famous book about his so-called, “Favored Races” or “Origin of Species” and it’s a good example of how you should never judge a book by it’s reputation. If you look at the Amazon.com reviews, you’d think that it was the greatest piece of literature ever produced! Well I have to say that if the first chapter is any indication of the rest of the book, it’s not looking very positive. Charlie just goes on and on about all this BS about how all these breeders have been capable of transforming this creature into that within just a few short generations. I feel badly that he really believes half of it. Then he pipes in with some of his own breeding prowess claiming that he had, “produced every sort of feather in his pigeons that you could imagine in just a few generations”.  Let’s see, how many bird of paradise tail feathers did he come up with, much less peacock,,, well.

But, we all know how guys are prone to BS, especially when there’s a little competition goin on! Then there’s the dude that brags about how he can breed any sort of sheep he wanted at will in only 3 generations!!! Charlie seems to hold that character in the highest regard… Of course that’s not to say that in very controlled conditions some very odd varieties of creatures can be sustained for multiple generations. That’s humans selectively breeding various creatures, which is a far cry from how nature works. Humans choose creatures both male and female that have the traits desired and form a “pedigree”. Creatures that are unnaturally isolated and artificially nurtured and carefully inbred.

Honestly, I was expecting more even though I know how bad his “science” really was. Maybe the second chapter will not be as bad? After all he didn’t know a thing about genetics and how inheritence really works. He mentions the “reversion to wilds” rule of breeding that reminds us of the power of nature to unravel all our best breeding efforts and return a creature to more or less its original natural type in only a few generations. If not, they probably won’t survive in the wild at all. He claims “but natural selection, as will hereafter be explained, will determine how far the new characters thus arising shall be preserved”. And indeed they shall, not to the help of significant change.

Nature breeds for genetic health and physical and behavioral conformity, whereas human-bred creatures are notoriously plagued by, and even selected for, genetic disease. If Darwin was looking to build a case for variability by showcasing that kind of stuff, it is a foolish and irresponsible way to go about it. As a naturalist himself he should know quite well that nature operates on an entirely different criteria from man.

Well, I’ll keep reading. Maybe things’ll get better…
