When I taught Biology, I had a number of dissections that were planned. The first one scheduled was a simple grasshopper. I was a little (maybe a lot nervous) about leading dissections and how some of the squirrely freshman would handle them. But at least I got to start it off easy with the simple grasshopper. Then I looked up some diagrams…woah! They are amazingly intricate! Think about it: There are probably billions of these things all over the world and they all...

In certain species of Anglerfish, the males are too weak after birth and so they immediately look for a female. “Once the male finds a female, he quickly latches onto her with his teeth to start a process that sounds like the stuff of science fiction. The male begins to fuse his body to the female, and his body enlarges like a deformed tumour. As it grows, it begins to lose limbs and organs. Its fins fall off, its eyes cease to function, and it ceases to have its own...

“Did you know that, “Right at birth, babies can tell the difference between most vowels and consonants in every language in the world”? (p. 65). In addition to this, “babies already prefer listening to their native language rather than to a foreign one—a truly extraordinary finding which implies that language learning starts in utero [in the womb]” (p. 64). In fact, rather than starting off as a tabula rasa (blank slate), a baby’s brain is ready to investigate and...

“The father of modern linguistics, Noam Chomsky—a self-professed atheist/agnostic—said that the process by which the human mind achieved its present state of complexity is “a total mystery”. He further wrote: It is perfectly safe to attribute this development to ‘natural selection’, so long as we realize that there is no substance to this assertion, that it amounts to nothing more than a belief that there is some naturalistic explanation for these phenomena.” Read more...

Check out this quote regarding going from animal instinct to complex human reasoning: “We are the heirs of an unfathomable wisdom. Through Darwinian trial and error, our genome has internalized the knowledge of the generations that have preceded us” (p. 25). Going further from that quote, we could say this as a rebuttal: “However, knowledge (i.e. information) is not a tangible thing, a property of matter. Even though information is stored on matter, it is a...

Of all the miracles and huge gaps that have to be explained to reasonably believe in Evolution, the jump from ape/animal instinct and mimicking and limited thinking to the complexity of human understanding and thought… …How can you make that evolutionary jump?!?! (You have to have a lot of faith in the processes of Evolution with currently little to no evidence!!) Picture from: https://pixabay.com/photos/child-girl-white-kid-attractive-3041378/ accessed on...

Though sloth day has come and gone – mark it on your calendars for next year and take a look at some of the details about sloths – to me it points to being designed rather than evolved! “Unite your family in celebration of International Sloth Day on October 20th! There are six types of sloth, which are divided into groups based on how many toes they have: Two Toes or Three Toes–although this is not totally accurate. Both groups have three toes, but the “two-toed”...

“Men despise religion. They hate it and are afraid it may be true. The cure for this is first to show that religion is not contrary to reason, but worthy of reverence and respect. Next make it attractive, make good men wish it were true, and then show that it is. Worthy of reverence because it really understands human nature. Attractive because it promises true good.” Blaise Pascal, Pensees Blaise Pascal was an influential mathematician, scientist and theologian. He...

Then on top of all that, listen to this: “Evolutionist Kenneth Kardong discussed the supposed evolutionary origin of jaws, “Such work is at the moment under way using molecular and genetic probes, but these have so far produced unsettled and somewhat contradictory results.” At this critical juncture there is no fossil evidence of such a strange transition, so an unscientific appeal is made to a large evolutionary leap.” So, what do you think, is there really evidence...
