Creationist Says Darwinists' Recent Claims Suggest Desperation

By Allie Martin January 5, 2006

(AgapePress) - The founder of the creationist group Answers in Genesis
(AIG) says a recent announcement by the journal Science claiming evolution
was the top scientific breakthrough of 2005 shows how desperate the
proponents of the theory of evolution are becoming.

Editors of Science cited wide ranging research, including a study showing a
four percent difference between human and chimpanzee DNA, as major factors
contributing to its decision to make its bold proclamation regarding 2005
and scientific discoveries supposedly offering support for Darwin's theory.
However, Ken Ham, the president and founder of AIG, says the journal's
announcement shows that secular humanists are worried about the increasing
availability of information that contradicts their ideas about evolution.

"Why are they proclaiming 2005 the 'Year of Evolution' and all these big
breakthroughs in evolution?" Ham asks. "Well, I believe it's because a
creationist ministry like Answers in Genesis has put so much information
out there, and we've got the Creation Museum under construction. I think
what's happened is that it's made such an impact on the culture, the
humanists are running scared."

The creation science advocate believes evolutionists are trying to declare
2005 as a year of breakthroughs for evolution in order to push the
evolution on an increasingly disabused public with unprecedented access to
scientific data supporting creationism. "We're getting information out
there, and once people get this information, they can see that evolution is
totally bankrupt," he asserts.

As for the scientific establishment's claims about the similarities between
the genetic code of apes and humans, the AIG spokesman points out, "When
you look at DNA, it consists of what are called base pairs, and there's
three billion of them in human DNA. Do you realize a four percent
difference means 120 million differences? That's an enormous difference.
That, in itself, is very, very significant, even if the 'four percent' was
real. but the four percent, as I've said, is a very arbitrary figure."

Given the opportunity, Ham contends he can debunk nearly all of Darwinists'
arguments for evolution in a 40-minute lecture. He says secular humanists
are aware of the many challenges posed to their pet theory by creationists
-- and he believes they are increasingly alarmed and desperate to fight
back, even with empty declarations and false assertions about "the year of
evolution."

swiming(drowning) dinosaurs

not so astonishing if the dinosaur was drowning in the rising waters of The flood

"{An Astonishing Discovery in Wyoming!
Ever heard of a dinosaur that could swim? Until now, it was assumed they were not aquatic creatures. That perception may soon change. The tracks of a previously unknown, two-legged swimming dinosaur that has birdlike characteristics have been found in northern Wyoming, reports The Associated Press.

So much for the Loch Ness monster. Scientists have discovered what could be the original sea monster!

Researchers continue to look for bones and other remains that might help them further identify and name this newly found dinosaur. "It was about the size of an ostrich, and it was a meat-eater," Debra Mickelson, a University of Colorado graduate student in geological sciences, said in a statement. "The tracks suggest it waded along the shoreline and swam offshore, perhaps to feed on fish or carrion."

This is no ordinary dinosaur fossil dug up in South Dakota. Find out why this bizarre looking creature is so special.

Based on just studying the tracks, the Colorado researchers have determined the dinosaur was 6 feet tall and lived about 165 million years ago along an ancient inland sea. "The swimming dinosaur had four limbs, and it walked on its hind legs, which each had three toes," Mickelson explained in a news release. "The tracks show how it became more buoyant as it waded into deeper water--the full footprints gradually become half-footprints and then only claw marks." She says the team's research supports the "conclusion that the dinosaurs were intentionally swimming out to sea, perhaps to feed." Swimming dinosaurs! "
most trackway I have seen show the same characteristics not new info just new hype.

Humanism and why homeschooling is one of the best ways to teach

Humanism is the state Religion Of our time , it is at the coreof the public education system so What is it? The humanist John Dewey "the father of modern education" was a signer of the "humanist manifesto" which stats in part-----
FIRST: Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created.

SECOND: Humanism believes that man is a part of nature and that he has emerged as a result of a continuous process.

THIRD: Holding an organic view of life, humanists find that the traditional dualism of mind and body must be rejected.

FOURTH: Humanism recognizes that man's religious culture and civilization, as clearly depicted by anthropology and history, are the product of a gradual development due to his interaction with his natural environment and with his social heritage. The individual born into a particular culture is largely molded by that culture.

FIFTH: Humanism asserts that the nature of the universe depicted by modern science makes unacceptable any supernatural or cosmic guarantees of human values. Obviously humanism does not deny the possibility of realities as yet undiscovered, but it does insist that the way to determine the existence and value of any and all realities is by means of intelligent inquiry and by the assessment of their relations to human needs. Religion must formulate its hopes and plans in the light of the scientific spirit and method.

SIXTH: We are convinced that the time has passed for theism, deism, modernism, and the several varieties of "new thought".

SEVENTH: Religion consists of those actions, purposes, and experiences which are humanly significant. Nothing human is alien to the religious. It includes labor, art, science, philosophy, love, friendship, recreation -- all that is in its degree expressive of intelligently satisfying human living. The distinction between the sacred and the secular can no longer be maintained.

EIGHTH: Religious Humanism considers the complete realization of human personality to be the end of man's life and seeks its development and fulfillment in the here and now. This is the explanation of the humanist's social passion.

NINTH: In the place of the old attitudes involved in worship and prayer the humanist finds his religious emotions expressed in a heightened sense of personal life and in a cooperative effort to promote social well-being.

TENTH: It follows that there will be no uniquely religious emotions and attitudes of the kind hitherto associated with belief in the supernatural.

ELEVENTH: Man will learn to face the crises of life in terms of his knowledge of their naturalness and probability. Reasonable and manly attitudes will be fostered by education and supported by custom. We assume that humanism will take the path of social and mental hygiene and discourage sentimental and unreal hopes and wishful thinking.

TWELFTH: Believing that religion must work increasingly for joy in living, religious humanists aim to foster the creative in man and to encourage achievements that add to the satisfactions of life.

THIRTEENTH: Religious humanism maintains that all associations and institutions exist for the fulfillment of human life. The intelligent evaluation, transformation, control, and direction of such associations and institutions with a view to the enhancement of human life is the purpose and program of humanism. Certainly religious institutions, their ritualistic forms, ecclesiastical methods, and communal activities must be reconstituted as rapidly as experience allows, in order to function effectively in the modern world.

FOURTEENTH: The humanists are firmly convinced that existing acquisitive and profit-motivated society has shown itself to be inadequate and that a radical change in methods, controls, and motives must be instituted. A socialized and cooperative economic order must be established to the end that the equitable distribution of the means of life be possible. The goal of humanism is a free and universal society in which people voluntarily and intelligently cooperate for the common good. Humanists demand a shared life in a shared world.

FIFTEENTH AND LAST: We assert that humanism will: (a) affirm life rather than deny it; (b) seek to elicit the possibilities of life, not flee from them; and (c) endeavor to establish the conditions of a satisfactory life for all, not merely for the few. By this positive morale and intention humanism will be guided, and from this perspective and alignment the techniques and efforts of humanism will flow.

So stand the theses of religious humanism. Though we consider the religious forms and ideas of our fathers no longer adequate, the quest for the good life is still the central task for mankind. Man is at last becoming aware that he alone is responsible for the realization of the world of his dreams, that he has within himself the power for its achievement. He must set intelligence and will to the task.

The religion of humanism has shaped all education public and even Christian education we must purge ourselves of it and remember God not Man is the measure of all things. The truth of Christianity is radical it must overturn the world and it system. not by revolutions or the voting box but but the by reaching the hearts of our children and thoses around us.

Seti and intelligent design

If you discovered a signal which gave you precise intructions to construct a marvelous machine able to move generate energy and even manufacture a copy of itself. Would you believe it was random. Science searches the universe for a intelligent signal yet can't see it right under there noses or in their noses. Even the humblest bacteria is more advanced that the greatest computer, no man made machine has yet reproduced itself.

Early in the development of creationist/catastrophist thought, impacts -- or close encounters with celestial bodies -- played a major role in the theory of flood geology. These early explanations were flawed by a lack of knowledge of the nature of comets (or other bodies involved) and by a reliance on the mechanically unfeasible axis shifts (or tidal effect) of objects of unreasonable size. It is certain from the presence of numerous craters between various stratagraphic layers that impacts did occur. This fact has prompted at least one critic to allege this as evidence against the Flood (as recorded in Genesis). Creationists have suggested that impacts played an important role in the judgment of sin at the time of the Flood. Dr Daniel Faulkner has proposed a in which a giant comet was directed at the Earth during the Flood and caused impacts on the Earth and moon. While agreeing in many particulars with Dr Faulkner, I suggest a somewhat different whereby the impacts on Earth and the maria-forming impacts on the moon resulted from the disruption-capture of a rubble pile body -- a stony or icy aggregate held together by self-gravity. The fragmentation of this microplanet (asteroid or comet) resulted from a near encounter with the Earth that brought that object within the Roche limit.the result was a Walker Exchange Capture- That is a three-body capture mechanism in which two smaller bodies(or one rotating rublle pile)the componates of which were initially in orbit around each other, encounter a large body and a partner exchange happens The resulting scatter of debris showered the earth/moon system with fragments of various sizes not only giving rise to most major impacts in a very short interval of time, but also giving rise to a temporary ring system which may have continued to impact the Earth for some time afterwards. Lastly, I have attempted to estimate the size of such an object based on the total volume of debris that struck the Earth during the Flood and have found the most likely size to range from 30 km to 55 km, easily within the range of known objects that could threaten the Earth.


Introduction

Early creationist ideas often suggested a role for cosmic catastrophism. William Whiston set forth a theory, which proposed a planet-sized comet raised tides that deluged the Earth. Edmond Halley proposed a comet impacted the Earth , which shifted the axis and thereby caused the Flood. He suggested the Caspian Sea was a scar of that impact. Such catastrophic events appeared Ad-Hoc and unnecessary until the revolutions in geology, beginning in the 1960’s, which have shown conclusively that sizable impacts have occurred. The size, nature, and number of such impacts have become evident. It is clear that many early theories exaggerated the size of the bodies involved and called upon forces many orders of magnitude too large to be realistic. It now seems that the Earth’s rotational axis has remained largely fixed within a few degrees and that it is unlikely any body large enough to produce catastrophic tides has ever passed close to the Earth. Extravagant hypotheses aside, there remain at least a hundred and forty large impact structures on Earth that must be accounted for in any reasonable flood .


Modern Creationists and Impacts

The former young-Earth-creationist-turned-critic, Glenn Morton , believes that the presence of numbers of impacts in the stratagraphic record is a major stumbling block to flood geology. With this assessment I totally disagree. Modern creationists are recognizing that the Flood was a more complex event than a mere rainstorm. Instead, it was an event whereby God unleashed many of nature’s forces in an act of severe judgment . In particular, the works of Wayne Spencer (who has suggested a solar system-wide catastrophe at the time of the Flood) and of Dr. Daniel Faulkner (the Directed Giant Comet ) stand out. Nevertheless, there remain unanswered questions and difficulties, which have not been completely addressed. Among these problems are:


If a solar system-wide catastrophe occurred, Dr. Faulkner has suggested there should more debris in the inner solar system.
Conversely, if the Earth were uniquely singled out for directed ardment, then why are there clear indications of a late heavy ardment accompanied by tectonic upheaval on Mars and Venus with dramatic flooding on Mars?
Finally, the broad stratagraphic distribution of impacts indicates ardment must have continued throughout the depositional phases of the flood, yet the formation of lunar maria suggests a much shorter impact episode lasting only two weeks at most.



The Rubble Pile Fragmentation

The recent discovery that many asteroids and comets are composed of loose rubble held together by mutual gravitation rather than material bonding gives credence to the idea that a single large body could -- supply the impacting bodies which evidently struck the Earth during the Flood year. Such an object passing within the Roche limit would be scattered into a number of fragments on independent trajectories in a manner similar to that shown in Figure One. The Roche limit is the distance from a planet at which the tidal forces exceed the mutual attractive forces of the microplanet and is dependant on density of the intruder. The rubble piles tend to have very low density that often are close to that of water.

Roche Limit = 2.423 * Radius of the Earth * Density of the Earth/ The Density of Microplanet exp 1/3

Assuming a density of 1 (water) for the intruder, the Roche limit for such an object would be 4.5 Earth radii or roughly 28000 km.




Tidal fragmentation

The disruption-capture of a microplanet would produce impacts at the onset but also could lead to the formation of a ring system around the Earth that would continue to supply impact-producing objects for a considerable time. Kaare Rasmussen of the National Museum in Copenhagen has shown by historical analysis and computer ing that such a ring may have existed after recent capture events and given rise to periods of high meteor activity. The perturbations caused by the moon and atmospheric drag ensure any ring around Earth would be much more unstable than around a giant planet such as Saturn. Yet even Saturn’s ring systems would last -- if not resupplied -- only thousands of years . The existence of tektite-strewn fields, such as the North American strewn field , indicates a ring-like distribution because they reach halfway around the world. Peter J. Fawcett, of the University of New Mexico, and Mark E. Boslough, of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Sandia National Laboratories, have additionally ed the formation of rings from ejecta from low-angle impacts and believe such a ring would have a large climatic effect. Possibly a debris ring may have contributed to the Ice Age after the Flood. . If the rubble pile disruption-capture mechanism was responsible for an inner solar system-wide catastrophe around the time of the Flood, then it seems to answer the three questions raised by the conflicting aspects of Faulkner and Spencer’s s. First, since the objects involved were relatively few in number, little debris would be expected to remain. Second, the nearly contemporaneous catastrophes on Mars and Venus were also the result of rubble pile encounters. Third, the continual rain of impacts during the Flood was the result of breakup of an unstable residual ring. This also explains the prevalence of crater chains and apparent chains, which seem to have been overlooked by evolutionists because the chains cut across “time” boundaries.


The Intruder

What would be the size of this hypothetical object? There are a large number of assumptions and variables which must be made to estimate the size. The actual result would vary considerably depending on those assumptions. The size of the mircoplanet was approximated by calculating the size of known impactors from a list of major-impact craters using an available calculation program ( modified from the FORTRAN source code to a PC friendly form by a programmer friend Matt Davis) then totaling up the volume using an Excel spreadsheet. In order to carry out this calculation the intruder was assumed to be spherical have a density of 1, an impact velocity of 17 Km per second, and impact rock with a density of 1.5 at an angle of 45 degrees. A minimum figure of 30 km was the resulting answer. Considering the total area of the Earth, it could really be three times greater in volume, or roughly 43 km. Then, add to that the portion which impacted the moon (or was lost to space). The resulting object was likely to have been 55 km in diameter. This is a reasonable size similar to many asteroids at present. Because the seems to require a relatively low velocity encounter, the most likely candidate would be an asteroid . Such an asteroid would be honeycombed with internal spaces giving it a low density.


Conclusion
The rubble pile disruption-capture provides a framework for explaining the known impacts of the Earth and the formation of lunar maria, as well as a that may be extended to other solar system objects. Impacts cannot be ignored in any comprehensive flood theory. The physical evidence is clear. Failure to recognize and explain these in a young earth can only weaken our stance.

two guys out for fun Posted by Picasa

destiny ,origin, and a day to remember

the day I held my son in my arms I did not look at him and say, wow, 3 billion years of random mutation and natural selction and you get this. Evolution cannot explain the wonder of life and all it's great moments. no one in there right mind would leave the rizing of a child to chanch let alone believe that is the way that children came to be.

Humming birds the masters of flight

Darwin Said in" the Origin Of the species" in chapter 6

"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down. But I can find out no such case"

Nature is full of just such examples in fact with few exception nothing can be shown to be able to come about in the way evolution insists upon. It is only by turning the question upside down Darwin side steps the issue. But lets consider one example the humming birds. Humming birds are a divers group with the amazing ability to fly, hover and fly backwards their wing structure is drastically different from other birds with the bones which in other birds would constitute the ends of the wings instead forming the whole wing. The mode of flight requires totally different controls and neurological programming as different as flying a helicopter is from a plane. By no steeple's modification could "the hand" bones with the altered muscle attachments replace the the arm and hand bone structure and remain functional at all steps and there are no transitions between utterly different flight modes. the interdependence of every part the of the system demands the whole be formed at the same time or flight would be impossible. Imagine the first mother bird hatching a offspring so deformed that its wings are mere flapping Hands as yet incapable of flight because the genetic programming of it brain is still not formed and the wing muscle are still to weak to flap are the needed speed? What would happen Natural selection would eliminate the creature as a matter of course long before the various coordinated changes could ever get started.
