Former hard-nosed English Atheist philosopher Antony Flew abandoned Atheism/materialism because of the growing evidence for such design in living things. He said: “It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design.” This research “has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce (life), that intelligence must have...Read More
Still Not Enough…
“Mutations happen. This is a given fact. Species change. This is also a given fact. Yet, none of this explains the origin of life, the complexity of life, etc. In other words, ‘change over time’ is fully part of the creation model. While it is true that ‘change’ is necessary for evolution, simple change is not enough. They need enough change over enough time to explain the common ancestry of all life. Yet, there is no mechanism to produce the vast amount of new...Read More
“Unexpected Aerodynamics of Bat Flight”
“Unexpected aerodynamics of bat flight…it just gets harder for evolutionists”!! “The stretchy skin on a bat’s wings interacts with air differently compared to the firmer wings of birds and insects. This elasticity, combined with dozens of joints (even more than in a human hand),3 allows bats to generate unusual wing shapes and motions, e.g. that give more lift at higher angles of attack—the angle at which the wing meets the air on the downstroke. This may allow bats...Read More
“If ENCODE is right, evolution is wrong.”
If Evolution has occurred due to mutations occurring randomly over long periods of time, then the human genome would just be filled with extra stuff – “Junk DNA”. The Encode Project “undermined the “junk DNA” myth and simultaneously fulfilled an ID prediction: that non-coding parts of the genome would prove functional. Junk-DNA proponents like Dan Graur were upset at the time, admitting as Jonathan Wells reported, “If ENCODE is right, evolution is wrong.”...Read More
“Striking” – Complexity and the Incredible Functional Nature of DNA
“Striking” – Complexity and the Incredible Functional Nature of DNA is Evidence of an Intelligent Designer!! “Skipper says it was “striking” to find that they were able to assign a “biochemical function” to 80 percent of the genome: striking, because “not such a long time ago, we still considered that a vast proportion of the human genome was simply junk.” Birney comments, “It’s very hard to get over the density of information” in the genome. They found places that...Read More
Complex and specified information, computer-like systems, and incredible machines!!
“The past fifty years of biological research have found that life is fundamentally based upon: A vast amount of complex and specified information encoded in a biochemical language. A computer-like system of commands and codes that processes the information. Irreducibly complex molecular machines and multi-machine systems. Where, in our experience, do language, complex and specified information, programming code, and machines come from? They have only one known...Read More
The Speed of Your Eye!
This is unbelievable! “In order for our brain to see an image, a chemical in our eye which is sensitive to light must respond as soon as a photon of light strikes it. This type of chemical change is called a photochemical reaction. Photochemical reactions are the basis of how photographic paper works, but the reactions that result in a printed picture are extremely slow compared to the photochemical reactions in our eye. The fastest photographic film requires the...Read More
‘You Are About to Experience 266 G’s!’ – Woah!!!
Here is a beetle that is STRONG evidence of God’s Design! “The jump of one of these ‘bionic beetles’, Longitarsus anchusae, was measured at 289 times its body length! Another species, Psylliodes affinis, experiences g-forces of up to 266g during take-off… …Considering that astronauts normally experience a maximum of 3g in a rocket launch and fighter pilots can sustain no more than 9g for more than a few seconds, these diminutive beetles are quite astounding!” See...Read More
More complex and different than we thought!
“How does the first cell of a developing embryo determine which end is which? The answer is that genetic information provides instructions for the orienting of the organism (left vs right, front vs back, head vs tail). It has now been discovered that genes used for orienting embryos are not conserved across different species, but are different in even ‘closely related’ species… …Evolutionists would not have predicted these results because they are contrary to the...Read More
Improving the Encyclopedia – 1 Letter at a Time??
Mutations are mistakes. “These mistakes are almost never helpful. Could you ever expect to improve an encyclopedia by adding more and more spelling mistakes every time one is printed? The evolutionary literature acknowledges this very clearly: Even the simplest of living organisms are highly complex. Mutations—indiscriminate alterations of such complexity—are much more likely to be harmful than beneficial.5 And: In summary, the vast majority of mutations are...Read More
Naturally Developed or Designed??
“A skyscraper begins with a plan, compiled by a team of architects and engineers. Even a very large tree begins with a tiny seed, often no bigger than a pinhead. But it is crammed with complex programmed information that controls its development into a living giant (see box [in the article]). It takes a mountain of materials such as cement, sand, and steel to be brought to the site to build a skyscraper. But the tree seedling accomplishes the build-up of its...Read More
How can we change something to create something sooooooooooooooooooooooooo complex?
“The development of new functions is the only thing important for evolution. We are not talking about small functional changes, but radical ones. Some organism had to learn how to convert sugars to energy. Another had to learn how to take sunlight and turn it into sugars. Another had to learn how to take light and turn it into an interpretable image in the brain. These are not simple things, but amazing processes that involve multiple steps, and functions that...Read More
