Magnetic Reversals found frozen in the rocks!

Posted on Sep 22, 2016 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Here is a fascinating article – it shows how there is evidence of magnetic reversals “frozen” within the layers of rock. But what this article focuses on is research on a very small volcanic rock layer that based on its size could have only cooled (from lava) and formed within 15 days. What is significant is that it shows the complete magnetic reversal from the volcanic layer below and the volcanic layer above. This shows that it doesn’t take thousands of years for the magnetic field to reverse which happens over and over again over millions of years, but it shows that at that point in earth history it happened really fast – likely as some catastrophic event was happening (a worldwide flood and rapid plate tectonics).   This is yet another physical evidence that fits a catastrophic flood thousands of years ago better than billion year old slow changes to Earth history!   Read more details here:...

A Flash Flood Buried What…?

Posted on Sep 15, 2016 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

The Arizona Republic, Friday, Nov. 12, 1999 reported that in the Saharan Desert paleontologists discovered 95% of the bones from a new species of huge, plant-eating sauropod, belonging to the family of giants such as Diplodocus and Apatosaurus. This creature weighed up to 20 tons and stood 30 feet high. Jobaria tiguidens is the name for this new find that was claimed to have been buried by a flash flood about 135 million years ago. It was also reported that a several of these gigantic beasts, some of different ages, were washed together. The pleasant environment in which these sauropods lived was drastically different from the desert climate of today.   That must have been some spring run-off! All of this can be easily explained by Noah’s flood picking up these huge creatures and depositing them in large fossilized graves. Some animals would have been ripped apart while others left intact. The collapse of a vapor canopy would explain a change in climate from a pleasant forest to a desert. The environment would shift from an underground water supply, to dependence on the hydrologic cycle.   -Rich...

“You have Anti-Freeze running through your veins, man!”

Posted on Sep 8, 2016 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“In the frozen wastes of Siberia, an amazing salamander is able to survive in suspended animation for years, deep-frozen at temperatures as low as –50°C, only to thaw out and run off afterwards. Scientists are not yet sure of the exact mechanism, but, like some other animals, they almost certainly produce ‘anti-freeze’ chemicals to replace water in their tissues and cells. Some have been found buried in ice which is believed to be from the Pleistocene Age—12,000 years ago by evolutionary reckoning. Yet they still recovered when thawed out! Though researchers have discussed the idea of radiocarbon dating to test the idea that they could possibly be that old, they say that the creatures ‘probably fell to this depth much later, through deep cracks in the permafrost’.”   Carl Wieland, The Lost Squadron, Creation 19(3):10-14, June 1997, Creation Ministries International, http://creation.com/the-lost-squadron, accessed July 25, 2016.

Big Gap from Mice to Bats!

Posted on Sep 1, 2016 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“For the sake of discussion, let’s say that mice evolved into bats. If this occurred, you would expect to find fossil mice and fossil bats, along with all the transitional forms (or intermediate animals) between the two, in the fossil record. A hypothetical example follows: Animal A (below) is the first step of a mouse changing into a bat. The animal looks like a mouse, but its arms are now longer than its legs. It will need these long arms to form the wings. Animal B is very unusual looking. It looks something like a mouse, but its fingers are longer than its elongated arms. These fingers will act as struts for the eventual wings of the bat. Animal C is developing enlarged muscles in new locations on its arms. A flying animal needs its strongest muscles for the movement of the wings. Animal D is developing a membrane on each arm. The membrane is not developed enough to allow the animal to fly because it is not yet attached to the body and back legs. Rather, the membrane is more like a loose cape. (See the picture of a bat’s wing membrane below.) Animal E is halfway to becoming a bat. It has wings, which are attached to the body, but the animal still cannot fly because the muscles for flying have not yet completely developed. Animal F‘s knees are starting to turn outward, like a modern bat’s knees. Walking is getting more difficult than before because of this awkward change in the legs and the extremely long fingers and arms. Animal G‘s knees are facing backward like a bat’s knees. Animal H is nearly all bat, but not quite. Its bones are still solid, rendering the animal too heavy to fly. Flying animals have hollow bones to make them lighter. This process has yet to take place before the final step of evolution into a bat.”   Werner, Dr. Carl (2014-04-01). Evolution: The Grand Experiment (3rd Edition) (Kindle Locations 1093-1108).

Incredible Odds Against Earth’s Perfect Placement

Posted on Nov 23, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “In 1966…Carl Sagan announced that there were two important criteria for a planet to support life: The right kind of star, and a planet the right distance from that star…As our knowledge of the universe increased, it became clear that there were far more factors necessary for life than Sagan supposed. His two parameters grew to 10 and then 20 and then 50…As factors continued to be discovered, the number of possible planets [that could support life] hit zero, and kept going. In other words, the odds turned against any planet in the universe supporting life, including this one. Probability said that even we shouldn’t be here. Today there are more than 200 known parameters necessary for a planet to support life—every single one of which must be perfectly met, or the whole thing falls apart. Without a massive planet like Jupiter nearby, whose gravity will draw away asteroids, a thousand times as many would hit Earth’s surface. The odds against life in the universe are simply astonishing… …Oxford professor Dr. John Lennox has said “the more we get to know about our universe, the more the hypothesis that there is a Creator . . . gains in credibility as the best explanation of why we are here.” To read the full article, go to:...

Symbiotic Evidence of Design

  “PBS 3 also describes the leaf-cutting ants of Brazil. They form colonies containing eight million insects, and they cut leaves into pieces and bring them to the nest, but they don’t eat them. Rather, other leafcutter ants mulch them and use the mulch to grow a fungus ‘garden.’ This fungus is used as food for the young leafcutters, which thus depend on the fungus for survival, but the fungus depends on the ants to provide the mulch. But this fungus garden has a ‘weed,’ a virulent mold that badly hinders the fungal growth. To combat this, some ants have a white waxy coating that is now known to be tangled mats of bacteria that produce antibiotics that kill the mold. Presumably, by this stage in the series, the producers hope that viewers are so indoctrinated in evolution that they don’t even need to try to produce evidence. To the diehard evolutionist, any phenomenon at all can be adduced as ‘evidence’ for evolution. In this case, they don’t bother to explain how such a complex symbiosis could have evolved, but merely assert that the bacteria and mold are products of an arms race lasting 50 million years.” From Jonathan Sarfati and Michael Matthews, Refuting Evolution 2: Chapter 4: Argument: Natural Selection Leads to Speciation, http://creation.com/refuting-evolution-2-chapter-4-argument-natural-selection-leads-to-speciation, accessed August 6,...

Einstein’s Knowledge – Not Enough

Posted on Nov 9, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“The mathematical precision of the universe reveals the mathematical mind of God.” -Albert Einstein Albert Einstein’s quote confirms what Paul said in Rom 1:19-20 – “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” From various accounts, it appears that Einstein did not believe in a personal God. We pray that all might not only see and acknowledge the evidence of a God in the world, but would take the next step of belief in the one true God – http://www.discovercreation.org/about/what-we-believe/who-is-the-creator/ By Brian...

“A True Mystery of Science”

Posted on Nov 2, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Regarding new fossil teeth much older than previously thought (2.8 million years old – 400,000 years earlier than before): “Arizona State’s William Kimbel, an author of the paper, said it’s not clear whether the fossil came from a known early species of Homo or whether it reveals a new one.” Such phrases seem to come up frequently: ‘older than previously thought’, ‘younger than previously thought’, ‘surprising results’, ‘unexpected data’, etc. This shows that science is still rapidly advancing, but I believe that it more often shows that we harbor assumptions and worldviews which color the way we interpret data and influence our expectations. In particular, I believe that many scientists operate under the wrong worldview (of Evolution and Naturalism) and are thus often challenged by data. Speaking of worldviews which color our interpretations, I also find an irony in the example above, in the fact that they would at least offer the option that the fossil teeth may be a new species of Hominid. That will guarantee more funding for sure!

Christian Heritage

Posted on Oct 26, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “[Ownership and embracing of science] is where some of my Christian brothers and sisters fail mightily. So often they cede “science” to the atheist and shrink away from his challenges, backing off in defeat while muttering something about “faith” and “belief.” “Well, you might have your fancy science books, but I’ve got faith.” Yes, faith and belief are important, but you, my Christian compatriot, are standing on the Mountain of Truth. You have the high ground. YOU have the facts and the science on your side. Your faith does NOT conflict with science. Christianity built this civilization; your Christian ancestors are the pioneers behind the greatest advancements in many fields of study. Christianity illuminates the sciences and invigorates the passion for discovery. As a Christian, you aren’t just a member of a religion — you’re a member of a rich intellectual tradition unmatched by any group, anywhere in the world. So don’t just sit there and let the atheists blabber about how your faith hates science. Speak up…Fight back. Get angry.” “…Atheism has to hide from so much, deny so much, and twist and manipulate so much, because its existence is always jeopardized by the scorching light of truth. To paraphrase CS Lewis, an atheist has to be careful about what he reads and which facts he encounters. There are traps everywhere.” From Matt Walsh, Christianity has done more for science than atheism ever could, September 13, 2013, http://themattwalshblog.com/2013/09/13/christianity-has-done-more-for-science-than-atheism-ever-could/...

The Importance of Reading

Posted on Oct 19, 2015 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

“Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.” (1 Timothy 4:13) “In this video age, Christians are in grave danger of forgetting the importance of reading. The word translated “reading” in this verse is the Greek anagnosis, a compound word meaning essentially “renewed knowledge.” A sermon or lecture is knowledge heard; an educational film or video is knowledge seen; but reading is knowledge that can be read, rehearsed, reviewed, and renewed again and again, until fully and securely learned. In fact, it is necessary for students to take notes, even when hearing a sermon or seeing a film, if they expect to retain any knowledge received by such means…The conscientious Christian must never cease to study and to grow in grace and knowledge (2 Peter 3:18).” From Henry Morris, The Importance of Reading, http://www.icr.org/article/7812/....
