Darwin’s Racism Came Out in “Descent of Man”

Here are some examples of Darwin’s writings in “Descent of Man”. By linking man with apes via his so-called theory of “evolution” and his central thesis of “common descent” he starts to put the “savages” and “negros” beneath “civilized man” on the supposed transition from ape to man. Savages as intermediate states between people and apes: “It has been asserted that the ear of man alone possesses a lobule; but ‘a rudiment of it is found in the gorilla’ and, as I hear from Prof. Preyer, it is not rarely absent in the negro. “The sense of smell is of the highest importance to the greater number of mammals–to some, as the ruminants, in warning them of danger; to others, as the Carnivora, in finding their prey; to others, again, as the wild boar, for both purposes combined. But the sense of smell is of extremely slight service, if any, even to the dark coloured races of men, in whom it is much more highly developed than in the white and civilised races.” “The account given by Humboldt of the power of smell possessed by the natives of South America is well known, and has been confirmed by others.

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…

Thoughts on the Nye – Ham Evolution Debate

Mr. Nye definitely expressed his huge faith in the institution we call, “science”. One of the main things he harped on over and over was the predictive ability of modern theories from science over the Biblical perspective. The Bible gives a very brief summary of how the God of Heaven went about creating everything at that time which was, “In the beginning”. It gives us the information we need to know and that’s all. All science does is observe the present and extrapolates forwards and backwards basing everthing on what we see happening now. Science predicts that what is happening now will continue in the future. Well at least as far as we have been able to observe and for the past 100 years that thinking seems to have worked for the most part. In the same breath he insists that the universe is many billions of years old and expects us to respect the assertion of his beloved “science” that that 100 years of observed natural processes must be applied to all the rest of that span of time! Ham resisted that notion entirely and reminded the audience that observable processes can only be applied to the here and…

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….

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…

Why Evolution is a Hoax at Best

Evolution as a theory of origins completely humiliates science. It makes a creator god out of mutation and adaptation and so-called “natural selection”. It insists that all of the diversity of life on earth is the result of a designer that must (by the declaration of the US Supreme Court) be taught in public schools as having an IQ of ZERO! Evolution as a theory of origins or in other words as a “creation story” stands in the face of everything we know about how complex things are brought into being. Whether it be a whicker basket or a space shuttle, and certainly something an order of magnitude more complex and efficient like a living cell, you will always need someone with adequate skills and resources to put it together. A basket requires a certain level of skill and intelligence, a space shuttle was the result of a team of the world’s best engineers with proven intelligence, a living cell cannot come into existence without the required skill and intelligence! No matter how you try to slice and dice mutation and adaptation, without the required intelligence or decision making skills, and resources required, a living reproducing cell (much less a…

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…

Forming a Christian Perspective on Science

Christ Jesus will come again as He promised! He will return for those that believe on Him and look for His appearing. It won’t be easy to keep that faith. Many have abandoned this hope and for various reasons they have put their faith in other things. Things that will eventually prove their worthlessness and everyone will realize that they’ve been foolish and lament, but be unable to change their outcome. The most important thing in every person’s life is their standing with their Creator. Our Creator has provided one Way to freedom and life. That’s through faith in His sacrifice as Christ Jesus on the cross and His life as Lord of our lives. The Creator will only save those that receive His forgiveness through faith in the risen Christ Jesus. There are and have been through history many other Jesus’ taught by false teachers like, Joseph Smith, Mary Baker Eddy, and many movie’s like, “Superstar”, the “Last Temptation”. Jesus taught that imposters would come and many would be deceived and believe lies. To teach that Christ Jesus is anything less than our Creator is blasphemy and a very serious sin. All humanity has the opportunity to enjoy fellowship…

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…
