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…

Genetic Engineering and Other Obsurdities

Science is a world of ignorance punctuated by bits of insight. This truth is evident in such human endeavors as: pharmaceuticals, evolution, education, genetically modified organisms “GMO”, gene patents, sociology, cosmology (the granddaddy of them all), physics (notably nuclear physics), to name a few.  There will always be problems when you monkey with correctly engineered things. This is so important to realize when considering altering the genetics of living things. I realize that the genomes of all living things are subject to decay and after innumerable replications of these wonderful creatures all around us and ourselves, and the forces at work , that some of the original genetic information has decayed as well. This level of engineering is so far above anything that has ever come out of science that it makes our feeble attempts look like mud pies. So, why are we trying to fix it, or worse yet, modify it? Do the drug companies ever listen to the disclaimers in their commercials? Just think of growing use of bacterial genetic material  being spliced into corn genes to make them produce a pesticide that will protect the corn from bugs. Will that pesticide end up in the corn we eat? Will…

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…

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….

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”…

Thoughts on the Serpent and Eve

The account of the fall of Adam and Eve in Genesis is one of the best known events recorded in the Scriptures. This past weekend my wife and I taught about this to some 4th graders in Sunday School. One child said that snakes don’t speak and I thought about that for a while. I know that the One who engineered that serpent would have no problem giving it human speech if the occasion called for it. But, there is an interesting detail in the account that makes THIS serpent far more mysterious. After it conned Eve into her sin and later Adam’s sin, the Creator placed a curse on the serpent so that it would have to crawl on its belly from then on. So, what was the serpent like before it crawled on its belly as snakes do now? Some time back I saw one of the Jurrasic Park movies and in one scene a voicebox like object from velociraptor is shown to give evidence that the velociraptor was well equipped for vocal communication. Could Satan have used a v-raptor as his mouthpiece in the Garden that day? There’s certainly no way to tell what the pre-fall serpent…

Passive versus Active Engineering in Living Things

From an engineering standpoint it’s very important to emphasise the advantages of direct engineering over passive engineering. Passive engineering relies exclusively on trial and error. Edison developed the incadescent light bulb in this way. He knew that a metal wire would emit light when enough elecrical current was passed thru it. The problem was to get that light to be emitted  at a temperature sufficiently below the metal’s melting point. And, after a long process of trying all sorts of different metal wires he eventually tried tungsten and got the results he wanted. Passive engineering is slow and inefficient to say the least. If Edison had more complete data on the light emission vs. melting point characteristics of all metals at his disposal, he could have known exactly which one to use and could have actively engineered his light bulb based on that information. He might have realized that plasma based lighting would have been a much better path to pursue had he been privy to plasma physics. When it came time to generate the needed electrical power to light all those bulbs he was making Edison’s passive approach to engineering kept him in the direct current box. Nichola Tesla had…

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…

What’s Really Understood About Space?

  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…

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…
