Did Darwin know…?

Posted on Jul 26, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Darwin knew nothing about the complexity of the cell!! Darwin knew nothing about the complexity of genetics! Darwin knew nothing about these incredible molecular motors! Watch the embedded video and as one professor suggests “Reflect on whether nanomachines produced for specific purposes could arise by chance when they depend upon detailed information both for their making and their function.” See it here:...

STICKY FEET!

Posted on Jun 7, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Tree frogs live in trees, sticking firmly to branches and leaves – even walking upside down on these surfaces.  How do they keep from  falling off? It’s all in the feet.  Close inspection of a tree frog’s foot reveals pads with cracks and crevices from which mucus oozes.  This mucus first cleans the dust and dirt off the surface to which the frog wants to cling.  Then more mucus oozes out – creating a thin layer of “adhesive” to grip the surface. These tree...

How Simple Can a Living Thing Be?

How Simple Can a Living Thing Be?

Posted on May 17, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “More recently, Eugene Koonin and others tried to calculate the bare minimum required for a living cell, and came up with a result of 256 genes. But they were doubtful whether such a hypothetical bug could survive, because such an organism could barely repair DNA damage, could no longer fine-tune the ability of its remaining genes, would lack the ability to digest complex compounds, and would need a comprehensive supply of organic nutrients in its environment.4 Yet even...

“Why are the very oldest trees the most complicated?”

Posted on Mar 20, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

That is what the secular researcher asked having studied the now extinct Claadoxylopsid trees (supposedly dating to 393-372 million years ago). Its extinction, in fact, is also a big question mark for secular scientists because their fossils are found already complex and fully formed with no more primitive ancestors and their fossils have been found in sand and some buried in volcanic ash. In fact, the ash preserved them so well that scientists could make out every cell...

Information – Evidence of Random Evolution or Created Design?

Information – Evidence of Random Evolution or Created Design?

“According to Carl Sagan, one of our best-known scientists, ‘The information content of a simple cell has been established as around one trillion bits, comparable to about 100 million pages of the Encyclopaedia Britannica’ [emphasis mine].1 What Sagan is talking about here is the information contained within the genetic code (DNA) of a microscopic Escherichia coli bacterium that lives in our intestines.” Read more here:...

Feeling Lazy??

Feeling Lazy??

Posted on Jan 2, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  If you have experienced any lazy time during the holidays, don’t worry! Check out these amazing machines that are always working in your body. As one biological animator/researcher says “So no matter how lazy you feel, you’re not really intrinsically doing nothing.” (See video 2 below) Darwin thought cells were simply small blobs that were like the smallest building blocks (bricks) for the construction of the body. Scientists in his day had no idea about the complexity...

T.u.g.ging… at Fruita Monument High School

T.u.g.ging… at Fruita Monument High School

Posted on Feb 8, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  I have been teaching at Fruita Monument High School, during the lunch hour, for the past several Mondays.  It has been with a group of students which use the acronym T.U.G., which stands for Teens Uplifting God. The school website states, “TUG is a group that is devoted to learning more about God and His purpose for our lives.  It is a safe place and one to find encouragement.” Our first session dealt with the immense complexity of the cell and the vast number...

How many reactions per second?!! No Way…

  I am currently teaching a series, about cults and the connection that they have to evolution, to a local church’s youth group.  I have taught this group at various times in the past, when I am not traveling of course, and so I have gotten to know some of the students quite well.  This is always a great benefit as they tend to open up, ask questions, and generally feel much more comfortable with me than if I had just come in for a session or two.   During one of our...

The Dazzling Dragonfly

Posted on Sep 6, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

If you are ever around lakes, ponds, streams or wetlands, keep your eyes open for a fascinating and beautiful long-winged insect. You might see one perched on a reed, warming in the sun, with its wings outstretched. Or you might see one zooming over the water like a little supercharged helicopter, zigzagging and darting this way and that. They might race towards you at a terrific speed, stop in an instant, hover, move backwards, buzz to the left, and dart to the right,...

Short Answers to Textbook “Proofs”

Posted on Mar 15, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

Do you and your children have answers for the most commonly used “proofs” of evolution?  Obviously it would take more space than available here to provide in-depth answers, but the following discussion should hit a few high points.     Fossils: Evolutionary textbooks often give fossils as the “best evidence” of evolutionary development of life over eons of time.  Intermediate forms were expected to show how the transition from one type of animal to another took place. ...

Scientific Breakthrough?

Posted on Jul 28, 2011 in Articles | 0 comments

You see a headline:  “Scientific Breakthrough!  Scientists now know how XXX works!”  In the article, the researcher is quoted as saying, “We now understand… .”  You may think, “Isn’t it amazing what the scientists are discovering these days?”  The headlines imply that scientists are beginning to understand how the universe works.  From subatomic particles to the Big Bang to evolution, scientists are figuring everything out.  Given enough time, man will understand...

The Amazing Platypus

Posted on Feb 10, 2011 in Articles | 0 comments

When specimens of the duckbill platypus were first sent to England in the late 1700’s, many English scientists thought it was a fraud.  It plainly didn’t fit well in any of the categories of animals known at that time.  Was it a bird, a reptile, a mammal or a combination of all of these? The platypus is an extremely interesting creature.  It has fur like a mammal but it lays soft, leathery eggs like a reptile.  Usually 1-3 eggs are laid in a nest built by the mother...
