The Myth Persists!!

Posted on Nov 29, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “In 2007 Science published an article on the similarity of human and chimp DNA titled, “Relative differences: the myth of 1%”.2 Author Jon Cohen queried the continued use of the 1% figure, citing comparisons following the publication of the draft chimp DNA sequence of around 5% difference. And yet the 1% myth is perpetuated in 2012 in the same journal.” Source: https://creation.com/1-percent-myth See also Tuesday’s post from us where we summarized this...

Are Humans and Chimps only 1% Different?

Are Humans and Chimps only 1% Different?

Posted on Nov 27, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  1% was an estimate suggested in 1975 which “came from crude comparisons of very limited stretches of human and chimp DNA that had been pre-selected for similarity.” “The human genome has about 3,000 million ‘letters’. If the 1% figure were correct, this would amount to 30 million letters difference, which would take 10 Bible-sized books to print. This is 50 times as much DNA as the simplest bacterium.3 This is actually a huge difference that far exceeds the ability of...

Design of the Tarantula Hawk!

Posted on Sep 27, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  “In some instances the codons of DNA have been shown to code for such esoteric or “alien” phenomena as animal behavior. An example is the Tarantula Hawk, a blue wasp that preys on tarantulas. As seen in the Walt Disney Home Video, The Living Desert (1953), the female wasp, when ready to lay an egg, finds a tarantula and stings it, causing the tarantula to go into suspended animation. The wasps then digs a hole in the ground, places the spider it it, lays her egg on the...

Evidence of intelligence is within us!

Posted on Sep 25, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Evidence of Intelligence is out there!  …  Actually, evidence of intelligence is within us! SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) has specific criteria to distinguish what might be evidence of someone signaling us from outer space. With that same criteria, is there evidence of an intelligent source within DNA? DNA is a coded message that shows Elegance, Complexity, Internal Consistency, and utterly alien. “The characteristics observed in the genetic code...

Are Small Changes…Enough??

Are Small Changes…Enough??

Posted on Apr 19, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Every change in an animal feature has to be a genetic change. Every genetic change is caused by small accidental mutations. Most changes are very slight – if the environment dramatically changes to allow for a mechanism for genetic drift – did newly changed creatures have enough change to survive that much more? Are those small accidental changes in the genetic code enough for the evolution of such an information-rich, sophisticated genetic code? Professional engineer...

“Viruses Prove Evolution!” – Are they sure?

“Viruses Prove Evolution!” – Are they sure?

Posted on Mar 6, 2018 in Creation Nuggets | 2 comments

  Recently, we were contacted asking about how we would respond to this documentary “Amazing Virus Evolution” from the National Geographic (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wy6EmhhR7I). Though there are many examples given that appear to support Evolution, we are not at all convinced. Here are some of our notes regarding the video. You may want to save these notes in case someone wants to challenge you with this topic claiming that viruses are evidence of evolution. We hope...

  “Darwinian evolutionists believe RNA, a nucleic acid present in all living cells, were some of the first molecules to form on the Earth and give rise to living things. But for that to happen, the RNA would have had to somehow reproduce on its own without requisite enzymes that would not have evolved yet. Szostak claimed to have facilitated RNA self-replication in his lab, but earlier this month, he said one of his colleagues, Tivoli Olsen, realized they had misinterpreted...

“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:...

Comparing Both Sides!

Posted on Dec 7, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Take a look at these charts!     There is definitely a difference of opinion in how both sides (Creation and Naturalism) interpret the same evidence and you can see the vast difference in the implications of each view.   You can clearly see how depression and suicide can be caused by being taught that we are simply evolved apes and that there is no purpose in life. Oh, how marvelous are God’s ways that He would love us and want to redeem...

Don’t Humans Share DNA with Apes? Isn’t that Proof of Evolution?

Don’t Humans Share DNA with Apes? Isn’t that Proof of Evolution?

“Claim: Humans share almost 99% of our DNA with Chimpanzees.   Reality: This originally came from analyzing only the portion of the genome that is already similar. Looking at the broader genome including Indels, that percentage is closer to 86-89%. If “junk DNA” is considered (which is not junk!), the percentage is even much lower. Genetic researcher, Dr. Jeffrey Tomkins, shows the similarity may be between 71-86%. He states, “While it is true that there are sections...

You are a mutant many times over!!

Posted on Jun 2, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

This is still one of my favorite arguments against evolution! “Renowned geneticist and inventor of the gene gun, Dr John Sanford,10 in his landmark book Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome, highlights the problem.11 The relentless net effect of random mutations (which evolutionists suppose to be the ‘engine’ of evolution) is actually degradation or complete destruction of function. As Dr Sanford puts it, “So every one of us is a mutant, many times over!” Such is...

Data in Your DNA!

Data in Your DNA!

Posted on Mar 21, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Scientists can now build practically any DNA sequence that they want which is allowing us to use it as a storage device. One research team has engineered DNA strands to store the information for an operating system, text, images, and a movie and they were able to successfully retrieve it. This technology could make huge strides in progress – think about it as they put it – “all your data in a drop of DNA.”   Let’s not forget, though, that this is clearly the work of a...
